THE IRISH 'INCORRUPTIBLES'. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

THE IRISH « INGOR UUPTIBLES'. THE wirld has'the following paragraph : -' " I'm williug to believe that most of them are honest," said a Nationalist chief lately about Iiis brethren, the eighty-six, which sounded like an insinuation that forty-four of them might be indifferently so. But, honesty or not honesty, the agi- tation pays. " Tim " has pocketed some two thousand pounds in testimonials. Mr. Sexton has bad six hundred pounds from Sligo, irrespectively of the far larger sum, the collection of which was lately started throughout Ireland. Mr. Sexton deserves his reward. Mr. Harrington has had a gift of six hundred pounds from West- meath, and sums varying from two or three hundred to six hundred have been subscribed by the most wretchedly impe- cunious (and " noblest) pisantry " in the world for a large number of enthusiastic- ally patriotic gentlemen, of whom there may be named Messrs. O'Kelly ang Deasy and. the two Redmonds. Mr. O'Brien, M.P., editor of United Ire- land, receiv...

Captain Cuttle's Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Captain Cuttle's Advice. There are many who say that as a peo- ple, Western Australians are not very en- terprising, very energetic, nor indeed very thrifty. A glance at the lists of our im- ports is sufficient to prove that we are not at all events at all backward in the art of spending. The old adage about keep- ing a sharp eye on the pence and leaving the pounds to their own devices has be- come in a measure reversed. This is more or less apparent throughout every branch of society, and is particularly so with regard to country people. Our far- mers are a good-hearted hospitable class. They earn their bread honestly by the .sweat of their .brow, bat they are much in the habit of neglecting the smaller, mat- ters of their business. They do not need te rely BO immediately upon their own soil to supply their wants, now that the ne- cessity of the division of labour is so widely recognised in every branch of in- dustry. Nobody thinks of calling our farmers extravagant because they cl...

A LADY'S LOUDON GOSSIP. -.-: When there are rents in the clouds we get a peep of heaven, but rents in high places hereaways, give ns peeps of-well-not hea- ven. Of quite late years some very compro- mising Reminiscences and Recollections of persons connected with Courts abroad, or in our midst, have been published, and one such work, in especial, " unhalved " the unctons and highly correct-on-the-surface King Leo- pold I., of Belgium. Now we are promised or threatened-all point of view-with Re- miniscences of the Court of King Ernest of Hanover, by his domestic chaplain, Mr. Wil- kinson. It is said that the Duke of Cumber lain has been entreated to edit the book ju- diciously, in consideration of our Queen's feelings, as it is well known that King Ernest had a scandalous tongue, with a virulent hatred to the Saxe-Coburgs, and the Prince Consort in particular. He used to tell rather spicy stories about the Prince's badly mated parents, and the Duchess of Kent. Now an- other scandalou...

tfoats : An Appeal. vijj On Tuesday last, at the Perth police court, Mr. Randell and Mr. Jewell, the sitting magistrates, fined a citizen tfor allowing his goat to stray about the town.

It is not content to eat what is before it, be it never so good. It prefers to dash at pot plauts and the bark of fruit trees. It is not to be subdued by any process known to humanity. Thrashed, kicked, stoned, hunted oue hour, it returns the next, and knows every weak paling in every fence in the...

Free Trade or Protection? [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Free Trade or Protection % The publication of Baylor's statistics naturally gires rise to a comparison be- tween the rival colonies of victoria and New South Wales, to see how tho political theories of the two are standing the test - of practice. People may set down the dif- ference between the two colonies, to then? fiscal policies or to their inequality in size, or whatever cause they will, %hnt at least the results are remarkable. Probably few will doubt that the different fiscal policies to wLich they "have commit- ted themselves do widely and materially influence them economically and industri- ally. Glancing through the returns, then, wè find New South Wales gaining far more than Victoria by the difference "between arrivals and departures by sea. TIÉ^fornier has an excess of 19,317, w-uereas the net gain by excess of immi .-^ratíon over emigration to Victoria was #only 10,880. New South Wales again has a larger revenue and a larger public ex- penditure, but a smaller public de...

The Powers of Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

The Poners of irrigation. The Great American Desert is a thing of the past. The quadrant which this .' desertv> once occupied on the map embraced the area n*w occupied by the States of Minnesota, Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, to the Indian Territory, " an area, in total equal to nine New Englands." The grain products of this " desert " in 1880, amounted to 642,016,200 bushels. The recent accident to Bishop Jenner, who was thrown from a tricycle and had his left arm broken, though no laughing matter in. itself, recalls one of the most entertaining passages in the last novel written by the late - Mr. Fargus, where a cycling person, whoso "three wheeler" had been objected to by^ v some ultrafastidious parishioners, rides over ~ to his bishop and persuades him to mount tba machine, in order to convince himself that there is nothing about it oontrary to the spirit of the Thirty-nine Articles. There can. be nothing objectionable in cycling as an episcopal exercise...

Fertility of the Cairns District. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Fertility of the Cairns District. The following from the Queenslander will apply to the Northern parts-of Western Aus- tralia:-"Mr. A. Meston writes to us as follows :-In the report of the last meeting of the Acclimatisation Society there is a suggestion that cocoa would grow well at Cardwell or Cairns. The year before last I received, among other plants from the Society, four young cocoa trees, which I planted in rich scrub soil near the bank of the Barron Biver. Beoords of the tempera ture of four years show 102 deg. in the shade as maximum, and 56 deg. minimum, with au average annual rainfall of about 140in. The cocoa plants grew rapidly for ! four months and then fell back. After a few : weeks they started again and repeated the same performance. They have continued thus advancing and retreating, and are now j not more than 2ft. high. The lichee and I wampee planted at the same time have attained a height of 12ft., and the tamarind trees are in a splendid condition. My opinion i...

EMIGRATION. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

EMIGRATION. PBOK THE WEST AUSTRALIANS Às will hare been seen in our Satur- day's issue, our London correspon- dent writes us word that the Crown Agents are preparing to despatch a thousand emigrants to this colony. The language of our correspondent is somewhat indefinite, but it points to an early carrying, out of this inten- tion. This is at least gratifying evi. dence that the Crown Agents fully understand the desire of the Govern- ment on this side, and are ready to work in hearty-accord with a forward policy in the matter of emigration. At the same time it will be admitted by every one that this intelligence has also a very serious side. We want emigrants it is true, but we want them of the right sort, and the busi- ness of securing these often becomes a task of extreme difficulty. There are no doubt plenty of men and women out of work in England, whom we might obtain for the trouble of ask. ing. Unfortunately, those whom the emigrant agent is earliest likely to light upon, thos...

We Cannot Know. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

We Cannot Know. It was twenty years 'ago to-day that I saw her part from her son at the railroad station. She, a motherly-mother, with purity written on every line of her face-he a boy of fifteen with clear eyes and honest countenance. They laughed together-together they wept at the parting. Ten years had passed when I saw her again-ten summers-ten winters. The motherly look had departed from her face ; purity had been replaced by vice. She had become drunken and vicious. That boy with the clear eyes would not have called her mother now. He would have fled from her in horror. She muttered drunken curses on me as she passed, and she raved at the child- ren who fled away as she approached them. I saw her again last night. It was for the last time on earth. I went with men into^a hovel to help restrain her in her delirium. Poverty ! Why I never imagined that human beings could live as she had passed her last years. Vice-degradation-ruin ! Ah ! a single look at her was enough to make on...

FRANCE AND ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

¡ FRANCE AND ENGLAND. At Newcastle-on-Tyne, recently, the now I celebrated Max O'Bell delivered an interest- ing lecture upon the above subject, of which a Newcastle contemporary gives the following résumé:-Mr. Max O'Bell, who was very cordially received, said he waa glad to think a Frenchman was now so welcome in England. Two or three days since he was able to read in one of the most estimable papers in that town that a visit was expected from a disting- uished Frenchman. He did not associate himself with the term " distinguished," but at the same time he would like to congratulate the English people upon being able now to associate a Frenchman with that adjective instead of with another adjective beginning with - (Laughter.) He was glad to see I they had got it. (Renewed laughter.) Pro ! ceeding with this commentary upon the two nations, he pointed out that John Bull was j apt to regard foreign articles os inferior. " German " seemed to be synonymous with " bad." There was " Germa...

Farm and Station. Dressing for Scale. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Dressing for Scale. It is hard to determino whether California ? or Australia is the worst pestered with in- sects injurious to fruit trees. We hear great complaints of scale insects which are actually destroying the fruit trees in some of the counties in that state. Laws for preventing the spread of injurious insects have been en- acted in some of the counties. In Los Ange- les county the law is very strict regarding this matter, and the people are heavily fined who allow infested trees to remain in their or «hards and are not prompt and careful in "their efforts to prevent the spread of the scale. In Fresno, where it is getting to be very bod, orchardists are not compelled to light it ; consequently it is spreading rapidly. _A prominent nurseryman and fruit grower states that he saw a 20 acre orchard in Fres- no, which he had previously valued at 6000 "dollars, and today would rather have the land without the trees than with them. Dr. -Chapin, State Inspector of Fruit Pests, re ?-...
