TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

TEMPERANCE. A Good Templar has requested us to publish the following dialogue, copies of which, will shortly issue for pnblic cir- culation : BANE OF WEST AUSTRALIA. Felix.-There appears to be a large impor- tation of intoxicating drinks to your colony. Paul.-I regret to say it is a fact for during the last 3 years just passed 765,492 gals, of intoxicants have been imported which at the usual retail prices cost the consumer ¿£273,300 exclusive of wine and beer produced in the co- lony. Felix.-What is the population of your colony ? . PAUL.-^About 27,000. Felix.-Such a large consumption of strong drink must produce á teartul ainonnt of crime, pauperism, disease and death. Are the Go vernmenttaking any steps towards the sup pvssion of intemperance ? Paul.-Not likely, for they desire a large revenue by import duty, and issue any amount or licences to sell these drinks, still further aid- ing the revenue ; in fact making it lawful to poison her-majesty's subjects wholesale. ÍELix.-Are a...

VASSE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

VASSE. (From our own Correspondent.) [ The Georgette has, once more, caused us a good deal of disappointment, as well as actual loss. That she arrived here 4 hours sooner, than her stipulated time is, of course a great improvement made by some alteration to the screw and some other part of the machinery while at Adelaide, bnt why the captain should be allowed to do as he likes, and disregard all the rules laid down by the Government, is more than I can tell, and it becomes a positive duty therefore, to fight for some alteration in the management of a presumed benefit, for which the Colony is taxed at a good round sum per annum. The Steamer arrived here on Saturday morning, at two o'clock, instead of six, as expected, and started again at half-past four, without giving us the four hours stoppage stipulated by the government. The consequence was, that 3 passengers, living about two miles out of the town, were left behind and had to make their way overland at a great expense and much i...

SUSTENTATION FUND FOR CHURCH OF ENGLAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

SUSTENTATION FUND FOR CHURCH OF ENGLAND. To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-If my humble "mite" be worth printing, do so and oblige a subscriber to your paper. I am wholly with " A. B." on the matter, and 1 desire to thank him for his able letter. I believe that I express the feelings of a large number of Churchmen in this Colony, and I am certain I do of my fellow men in this corner of it, when I state that, no fund, be it ever so large can keep up a Church unless the love of the people sustain it. Let subscriptions pour in all will not do, no matter how large soever they be, in the absence of that vitality which is the sustaining power. "A.B. "well puts it when he states that if our clergymen are vwrih their salt they need not fear to oe left starving. I fear we may look in vain for á Dr. Primrose ; I have done so for many years, and were I, to live to the age of Dr. Parr I fear I should not see in this Colony a minister of Church of Eng- land such as he.

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

f&be Western australian Simes. SOLUSI NON MUTAT GENUS. FKIDAY. AUGUST 27, 1875. What a world of truth there is in that well-worn, but ever applicable quotation fiom Dante: "Hell is paved with good iiitentions." From the mightiest nation down to the most humble individual, all bear witness to its truth. We think Western Australia, looking back on the many " bridges of fancy," that have been built by her theorists, and the little real work that after all has been done, night well re-echo the sentiment. We indeed have had our fair share of "much ado about nothing," and we hope that the days of theory are gone by, and that the time to be " up and doing" is at last arrived. Still, one feels a hesitation al building up a theory of any sort, when lhere seems such a dim prospect of its ever becoming a reality. Some one in casual conversation the other day, startled us with referring to the time when a separation of Western Austra- lia should take place, and we should have our Northe...

SHALL WE HAVE RAILWAYS? DO WE WANT RAILWAYS? WILL RAILWAYS PAY? TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

SHALL WE HAVE RAILWAYS? DO WE WANT RAILWAYS? WILL RAIL- WAYS PAY? To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-"Shall we have railways" ? isratherahard question to answer ; but, "Do we want Rail- ways" ? is more easily answered ; but, I am in- clined to think in different ways. I, for one, would say we do want them. For what reason ? For facilitating the transport of goods from one part of the colony to the other. Then we may say "Will railways pay"? Before answering this question I would ask " Does anyroad in the colony pay" ? "Do the members of the Roads Board from Perth to Guildford, draw our divid- ends from the roads" ? I have .no doubt there are plenty who would say-" Certainly not, but then if there were no roads how could we manage ? It would cost so much to transport our goods," Yes, but I say you could manage better without those roads in eomparision, than you could do without railways. How do they manager where there are no roads ! You would say it cost a deal more for transpor...

Country News. FREMANTLE. PORT TOPICS. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

©fltttttrg lUfo*. FREMANTLE. Port Topics. (From our own Correspondent.) Butter is in great demand here ; reports of arrival have a charm equal to the music dis- coursed by the pipe of the "pied piper of Hamelin. " At the sound of butter. "All the Uttle boys and girls With rosy cheecks and flaxen curlB." troop along the streets with saucers, basins, and dishes of aU sizes to storm the premises of the fortunate storekeeper who may have secured a keg of the scarce article, and so determined are these storming parties that the vendor is unable to resist their attacks. The ammunition used on such occasions consists of half crowns, one of which is expended for every sixteen ounces of butter wrested from the holder ; a privilege, if we could only think so, arising out of import duty on commodities produced here in small quantities and for which our blessed protectionists ought to be compelled to wear a butter medal round their necks during the summer months. A Benefit Building and Investme...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-By the agency of some person or persons unknown, we are becoming more and more pestered with defaced coins, often ' sweated' in a disgraceful manner. Can no steps be taken to stop this nuisance, without punishing innocent holders ? The practice of " sweating" coin is well nigh as dishonorable as its spurious manufacture, and merits a severe legal check. HARD CASH.

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

Carr*sp0ttittf.trje, To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-In the Times of last Friday appears a letter signed, ' Fair play for all' In this letter a passage occurs which undoubtedly conveys by implication that the Catholic clergymen of tins colony, natives of countries of the continent of Europe, have not that loyalty which their breth- ren, home subjects of Her Majesty, possess. Want of loyalty to the sovereign under whose protection we live is a serious charge to bring against any subject of the realm. The very making of such a charge without the most solid grounds is of itself a grievous wrong. The ac- cusation is, in this instance, of a definite offence, and, if true, must admit of definite proof. I am sure I will not be considered as asking much if I request your anonymous correspondent to favor your readers with a substantiation of the asser- tions he has made. Moreover the accusation, though couched in general terms is in realty restricted in its ap- plication. There are bu...

THE NEWSPAPER EDITOR. (Sheffeld Daily Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

THE NEWSPAPER EDITOR. (Sheffield Daily Telegraph.) The average Englishman has a clearer notion of the habits of the octopus than of those of an editor, and he knows more of the interior of Africa and its tribes than of the interior of a newspaper office. He credits the editor with ail sins of omission and commission. It never seems to dawn upon his innocent mind that an eight-page newspaper like this -the product of one day-contains more printed matter than many standard books, and he would scearcely believe us if we told him that much of its contents are at breakfast-time just as new to its editor us to its readers. In his eyes the editor of a daily journal is a marvellous being possessed of more eyes than Argus, more arms than Briareus, more feet than a centipede, and more heads than John the Baptist had when Catholic Europe was privileged to possess several various heads of that one martyr. To the majority of Englishmen such an editor is a nouu of multitude. He is supposed to per...

SOOTHING SYRUP. (New York Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

SOOTHING- SYJJUP. (Neto Yorlc Times.') We suppose it must* be admitted that the present generation is more civilized than its predecessors. This is the gerteral opinion, and probably no good is to be attained 6y disputing it. In many respects it cannot be disputed. Commerce is developed. Social comforts are more numerous and more complete. We have made great advances in science and the philosophy of thought. And, if this ve a part of civilization, international wars are more cruel, and less chivalric than formerly, crime is more highly cultivated, and religious belief is assuming a much more negative quality than it once had. But there are some directions in which the advance is hard to recognise. Occasionally it almost appears that our progress has been in the other direction, but that may be simply a matter of opinion. A custom which has of late grown very nrevalent, and which appears to be increasing in popularity among many people, suggests to us an illustra- tion which bears up...

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 31 August 1875

THE OWL AND THE MAGPEE. " Oft in the stilly night" warbled the Owl in his sweetest tenor voice, but his song was rudely disturbed by Maggie, who in her hurried flight almost upset the majestic dreamer. "Terrible news," shrieked the Magpie, "terrible news"! "What now"? cried the Owl, "What now? Some more of your idle delusions. " " Alas, no" whispered the Magpie trembling, " it's all up a tree, I fear, sage Mr. Owl. We're caught at last. " How", said the Owl, still stolid and un- moved. " Why," breathed Maggie in a horrible whis- per," we are betrayed. Some one has listened, for as I fled along I saw some one reading a vile newspaper, and it was word for word what you and I said the last time we met and took sweet counsel together. " "Oh ye gods" ! hooted the Owl, on the trembl- ing air. "Oh crikey," ! shrieked Maggie, in shrill dis- may. " What have I done that I should suffer this ? groaned the owl. "OhMoses," cried Maggie, "aint we in a lix", quite losing her self-posses- sion in ...
