"RAILWAYS ACT. 1878," AND COMPENSATION FOR LAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 December 1879

"RAILWAYS ACT. 1878," AND COMPEN- SATION FOR LAND. To THE EDITOR OF THB WEST AUSTBALIAK. ] S»,-"Bush-Lawyer" has brought this matter forward in your columns, particularly drawing attention to clause 50 of the Act, and how one condition of that clause does not accord with the other, and that consequently the clause is of no effect. If a party claims (say) ¿100 andjfte award is (say) £74, then the claimant has to pay ¡vii coste-possibly amounting to more than the whole claim. But if the award is (say) ¿876, the claimant gains his case and the Commissioner of Railways bears the costs, so that a matter of £2 makes a very serious difference, thus almost inducing a claimant to accept an offer, however unreason- able, rather than run the risk of losing the full amount of his claim and having to pay expenses into the bargain. In several instances which have come under my notice, the offer made by the Commissioner to claimants has been by no means as reason- able as it, could be made without...

A FEW MINUTES IN AN ICE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 December 1879

A FEW MINUTES IN AN ICE MOUSE. Last week we congratulated the citizens of Perth upon the establishment of an ice manu- factory m the city. We then expressed a hope of being able to furnish our readers with some particulars of the process by means : of which the crystal blocks with which the Perth Ice Co. unexpectedly delighted the hearts of perspiring citizens on Thursday last, are produced. Our representative having ¡ communicated with Mr. Mumme, who, dur- ing the temporary absence of Mr. Ferguson, acts as the company's local manager, that gentleman courteously afforded our reporter an opportunity of visiting the manufactory, under Mount Eliza, where the process of ice making is carried on. On entering the build- ing our pre-conceived notions as to the tem- perature in which persons engaged in ice manufacture 'live, move and have their being,' were rudely shocked. We had thought that here, at any rate, no matter how intolerable the heat might be outside, life would not only, be bea...

THE tú %mki VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, DEC. 16,1879. SIR HENRY PARKES AND PUBLIC INSTRUCTION IN NEW SOUTHE WALES. It is one of the best features of colonial public life] that questions connected with the instruction of youth, assume a rela- tively far greater political prominence than in older countries ; and whatever we may think of political actions and politi- cal morality which in the Eastern colonies certainly bid fair before long to descend more or less to the American type, we cannot fail to view with sincere admiration the determined efforts which even the most poli- tically-objectionable of these colonies have made, to establish-upon a firm and per- manent bááis, as perfect a system of «public in-. struction as it has been in their power to de-1 vise. These systems, however, framed in ac- cordance with the wishes of the governing ma jority, have not alw ays respected or in any way considered the interests of the minority -religious interests invariably-and the coa-"...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 December 1879

dts LOCAL TAFD GENEMAL. The confidence of the Victorian protection-, ists in the willingness of all the world to con- tribute to their advantage is not a little remark- able. We find, for instance,, in the Melbourne papers, that Mr. Munro, a- gentleman who spoke at Carlton, spoke with unhesitating con- fidence as to the .manufacturers^ of Europe sending their goods for exhibition to a pro- tected colony 16,000 miles distant. We should not advise other Victorians to share Mr. Mun ro's confidence. The inducement to European manufacturers to send their products an im- ' menso distance ata great cost to a. country where the fiscal policy is avowedly that of keep- ing out all articles, of manufacture, must/ be ranked amongst the things not generally ! known. What are the Europeans to send their goods for ? For Victorians to copy ? That will not be found an' attraction on the other side of the world.

The Novelist       MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] 'You see,' said Raymond when he had finished reading Sir John Rovel's letter, that your father empowers me to get you married. Your dowry, though nothing very great, makes you quite a fairly good match.   Meg looked at him, and gave vent to a scornful gesture, which apparently meant 'Look at my eyes and my hair, surely they are worth something more than my fortune !' Raymond took not the slightest notice, but   proceeded to say: " May I ask if there is   anyone for whom you have a preference ? "  "I have often heard Mamma say,"answered       Meg , with most serious air, "that marriage is the greatest of follies, unless there is     love to excuse it. When I love, I may possibly marry."          " Very well, Miss Rovel, in that case may I ask you at what school you would like to be placed?"    ...

Farm and Station. THE POISON PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 December 1879

THE POISON' PLANT. We have received the following communica- tion from Baron von Mueller:   " Allow me to ask you,' whether a bag full of the York-road poison-bush (gastrolobium caly- cinum) could be carefully dried for me, at a place, and in a season when it proves very de- structive to herds and flocks. l am eager to submit the plant to exact chemical tests, in or- der to isolate the poison principle for physiologic   exact experiments. I have made a few obser- vations on the gastrolobium nilobum from King George's Sound, but the quantity of material on which I operated was too small for practical purposes, and I am not quite sure whether the poisonous principle may not be volatile.   The dried poison plants, before sent to me, might be tried on some old sheep, so that I may be certain that it is not inert material on which I work."     Melbourne, Nov. 23, 1879.   [We hope that some of our readers will take &...

In my present letter I shall more especially refer to one of the most economical and effective means of effecting sue1! improvements, \iz,-the ringing of timber and the destruction of the overgrowth of wood sb general ia this colony. , I must premise by stating that my experience only extends to the " Eucalyptus," or whatare known as blue gums and red gums. I have not had any experience in the land of timber growing over the Darling Bango. The red gum is easily dealt with. Simple barking, -at any time between October and Christinas, will seldom fail to effectually kill the tree. JBiit the blue gu...
