THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, OCT. 12, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 October 1880
TSE WEST AIST1AMAN. VJOHAKS EI AUDAX PEBlm^TUESDAT, OCT. 12, 1880. THEBE is scarcely any question which has of late years assumed greater prominence in colonial politics, than that of the consti- tution and powers of Upper Houses. The Victorian Upper and Lower Chambers of the Legislature have been in a chronic state of quarrel for ten years post, and this Victorian disease, within the last year or two, has widely spread. Mr. BEBBT has clearly shown how marked are the advan- tages to be gained, how many the oppor- tunities to be made use of, by the Badi cal politician, if only he can contrive to foment discord and strife between the popular and the conservative Houses of Parliament. The infection first 'took' in New South "Waled, and* we had at one and the same time the amusing spectacle of BEBBT denouncing elective Upper Cham- bers and declaring in favour of nominee, of PABKES denouncing Nominee Upper Chambers and declaring in favour of elec- tive, and of both pursuing the same tact...

THE INTERCOLONIAL RIFLE MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 October 1880
THE INTERCOLONIAL RIFLE MATCH. The firing of the intercolonial rifle match, which was the second contest that has taken place between teams representing our Metro- politan Rifle Volunteers and the^South Austra- lian National "Rifle Association, took place at Perth*_and Adelaide simultaneously on Satur- day afternoon.- It will be remembered that on the occasion of the first match, fired in March last, our men succeeded in beating the South Australians by'five points. On that occasion the Metropolitan^ fired with the Snider rifle, and it was very generally considered that had they been armed with the same weapon as their opponents (the" Martini-Henry), the victory would have been more complete. The chances of the local team on the present occasion, when, through the-courtesy of Captn. Sutherland- of the Fredlantle company, they «rere enabled to fire w\th the superior weapon, were therefore considered very good,-although they had not bad much time for mastering the intricacies of the M...
OCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 October 1880
OCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. IT cannot but afford us all unqualified gratification that our Volunteers have again shown their 'superiority at the butta "over their' South Australian rivals. The advantages to Western Aus- tralia of a friendly victory auch as that of Saturday last are greater than at first sight would appear. Men always feel a certain respect for those who can beat them at anything ; and that our very little known colony should twice have' beaten great and prosperous South Australia, even in a shooting match, will certainly raise us there in public esti- mation, and make us better thought of than we were before. Only a few months ago » lecturer in South Australia, when speaking of Australian federation, proposed that in the event of a federal union of these colonies, Western Australia should be left out in the cold, because she was " an Imger' tal frison." And it was afterwards suggested that this course would scarcely be advisable, that a better would be to pr...
COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, October 11. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 October 1880
?WMM GETTOS. (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, October 11. James Freeman has been convicted of sly grog selling, and sentenced to three months' imprisonment, and also fined-£30. This ought to prove a wholesome lesson to others who have a weakness for sly dealings in dutiable articles. Captain J. Campbell of the Armistice was sum- moned the other day for an infringement of the Port Regulations, viz., throwing ballast over- board at Rockingham. The case being clearly proved he was fined five pounds, and costs (two pounds, seventeen shillings and sixpence.) T. W. Mews, Senr., & Sons have launched a Deal lugger for Rottnest, which has been pur- chased by the Government for the pilot service. The top sides are of Kauri pine. The frame is &nbsp; of jarrah, and is carvel built, on the same prin- ciple as the Deal lugger imported from England, and about the same dimensions. For the pur- pose of testing its sailing powers, a trial trip was arranged on Friday last with...
THE STORY OF MRS. WELDON. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 15 October 1880
TSE STOBT OF MHS. WELBON. > The English metropolitan papers have latterly given a good deal of space to recounting the adven- tures of the above lady-adventures so queer that a> much shorter space is giren in these columns to a precis of facts. Mrs. Georgiana Weldon, it appears, ia a London lady of beauty, wealth and musical ac- complishments, though not, perhaps, very youthful, who, for the past fifteen years, has aspired to be a leader iu the walks of musical art. She lived in style in her own house in Tavistock Square, and soon, by her habits of persisently cultivating no torities, came to be looked upon as a second Mrs. Lyon-Hunter. AU the musician and singers she could lay hands on she brought to her house, and that she was egregiously plucked.more than once can be well imagined. But Mrs. Weldon was not contented, and from giving soirees at her residence, she advanced to giving concerts, finally establish- ing a choir, which she conducted in person. Some ten years ago she...
Supreme Court—In Equity. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 15 October 1880
Supreme Court-In Equity. (Before Sis Sonor the Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13. The Supreme Court sat in its equity jurisdic- tion on Wednesday, but the business transacted was not of much public interest or importance. Mews and Others v. Poole and Others. This was a motion for leave to take a bill pro confesso. The suit is one nominally instituted by certain parties in this colony, for whom Mr. Leake, Q.C., appeared; the defendants being solicitors carrying on business in London, and connected with the trust estate of the late Mr. E. W. Landor. The plaintiffs' original bill of plaint was filed as late back as August 1878, and on the 8th January last the defendants put in an appearance through* their solicitor Mr. S. H. Parker, and, by an order of the court, were allowed six months' further time to file their answer to the plaintiffs' interrogatories. In July last, this period of grace was still further extended, for three months, which had now ex- pired ; and as the defendant...

T&E6IAMM MEWS BRITISH AND FOREIGN. [Associated Pbess.] ARRIVAL OF ATOUB KHAN AT HERAT. London, Oct 8: Ayoub Khan has arrived at Herat, of which he is Governor, and affairs have be- come quieter. AFFAIRS AT DULCIGNO. London, Oct. 8. The withdrawal of Riza Pasha from Dul cigno is deemed a ruse, to induce the Mon- tenegrins to attack the place. Many con- flicting statements are current, but it is considered probable that the English pro- posals regarding the blockading of the ports m the iEgean Sea will be adopted. THE DISTURBED STATE OF IRE- LAND. London, Oct. 8. A hundred Irish landlords have waited upon the Lord Lieutenant and threatened to abdicate their functions as poor-law guardians and members of other public boards, if the Government is not prepared to protect them. J In consequence of the existing agitation, especially in Galway and Mayo, those counties have been proclaimed by Govern- ment disturbed districts. It is stated that a renewal of measures of an exceptional ...
A BRAVE GIRL OUTWITS A BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 15 October 1880
A BEAVE GEM. OUTWITS A BÜBGLAB. It is not often that a greater presence of mind, or a quicker inventive faculty is shown than that which was exhibited by Susan Gervin, aged 17, upon the occasion of a forcible entry being made into her master's house. The story, as told by the girl herself in the Woolwich Police Court, is simple. Between one and two o'clock in the morn- ing she was awoke by hearing someone making a noise at the kitchen window, and thought it was somebody belonging to the household. Presently the door was burst violently open, and she heard the footsteps of a man, who she then felt sure was a burglar. She resolved to lie quiet and pretend to be asleep, but she saw the man enter her room, look at her, and then turn out the lamp, which she usually kept burning all night. His next proceeding was to take off his boote, belt and cap. Pretending to awake, she said, " Ned, what have you done with the light? It's a nice way to serve your sister, to take her light away. I must...
AN ACT OF CHARITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 15 October 1880
AN ACT OP CHARITY. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-An act of thoughtfulness occurred in connection with the tea-meeting at Trinity Church last Tuesday evening, which, I think, is worthy of record, for the sake of example to other denominations. A number of free passes, signed by the Pastor, were distributed among the poor, so that those who had not the means of purchasing a ticket might spend an enjoyable evening free of cost. It is very pleasing to know of this, and I crave a space in your popu- lar journal to mention it. Yours, etc., X. Perth, October 15.
A MEMBER IN A FIX. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 15 October 1880
A MEMBER INA FIX. The latest achievement of a new member of the House of Commons very nearly resulted in includ- ing a lady among the supporters, in a division, of Her Majesty's Government. Members have the privilege of taking a lady past the outer portals of the House where the jealous doorkeepers sit, and leading her np to the very gate fit the sanctuary. Here in a recess to the left of the doorway is a bench on which the lady may stand and gaze upon the House. Whilst the discussion on the appoint- ment of the Merchant Shipping Committee was in progress a new member had led his wife to this spot, and was pointing out to her the celebrities of the House. Suddenly the division bell range, and the customary scene of confusion followed. Mem- bers came rushing from the lobby, and'swarmed like bees at all the other approaches to the House. The new member was in a frenzy of despair, not knowing which way to turn. The lady was for solving the difficulty by staying where she was, but the n...
"A CITY COUNCILLOR" IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 15 October 1880
"A CITY COUNCILLOR" IN REPLY. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sib,-I do not know whether the reasons I have given for not granting any monopoly over the new Recreation Ground are the same as those entertained by the other members of the City Council, but I cannot conceive that they can have any other, although I note that you arrive at the conclusion that my reasons " do not possess very much force." It is because (as you state) " this particular three acres ia the only spot, which, on account of its position, and for other reasons, is really suitable for a cricket ground " that I object to any one having any monopoly over it. I gather, however, from your remarks on my letter that you think this-" the only suitable spot "-should be granted to the M.C.C. and the other clubs, and that the public should be content with, the "Government Gardens. Claisebrook Reserve, the old Cricket Ground, Weld Square, and the Reserve on Mt. Eliza." This is candid on y«ur part, but it savours rath...
