The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

The Difference. " What becomes of men who deceive their fellowmen P " asked a Sunday school teach- j of her class. " They lose the confidence of good peo- j pie," was the prompt answer. j " Very well, indeed. Now what becomes ¡ of women who do the same thing ? " j y The question stumped the class for a minute and then a little girl piped out : " They usually catches the man for a hus- band." j

SUPREME COURT. (Before their Honors the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Stone.) MONDAY DECEMBER 21st. CONTEMPT OF COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

SUPREME COURT. -* (Before tliexr Honors the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Stone.) MONDAY DECEMBER 21st. CONTEMPT OP COUBT. Mr. Haynes said he had a motion of a serious nature to make, based upon the affi- davit of the " Attorney in the case of Fenwick v. Barnett, for a rule nisi for contempt of court against the Went Auvtmlian news- paper. On the 7th instant he obtained a rule nisi for a new trial of the action in question, and the Court ordered that the motion to make the rule absolute should bc heard on the 21st. inst., which, in his opinion, was calculated to create a prejudice against the plaintiff, and to improperly interfere with the second trial in the event of the rule being made absolute. The article he com- plained of was as follows. " Will anj'one " rise up to contradict us when we say that " certain matters connected with the admin " istration of justice in Western Australia " are now reaching a point which is becom " ing, year by year, or rather term by term, " absolute...

\ A "Beery" Farm. There is a scwago farm at Burton-on-Trent and, according to a local alderman, it is so beery that the rooks of the district, after feeding on the snails and worms that abound on the farm, " become quite stupified, and are practically in a drunken condition."

Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARIS. " A stern chase is a long chase." THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER II IN " THE LOYAL AND EVER FAITHFUL ISLE." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

A STERN CHASE.     ?-? A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase." THE FIRST PART.   CHAPTER II IN "THE LOYAL AND EVER FAITHFUL   ISLE." The sun was up, but as yet only beaming benignantly, not in a merci-     less glare as at mid-day, when man   and beast would have to hide from its unbearable splendour— over the beautiful Cuban Bay, upon the great Sierra, which, uprearing itself from the coast, stretches along the face of the island, upon the rich country be- yond the towns, and upon the Plaza de Armas, and the square-towered cathedral of Santiago de Cuba. There is an air of repose upon the vast church, and a constant coolness, which makes itself felt from the mo- ment its great doors have been passed, reigns within it. This coolness was very fresh and pleasant at six o'clock on a glorious morning—that is the only word for a morning in the Pearl of the Antilles, and not a bit hyper-...

THE MARSHAL AND THE ARTIST. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

THE MARSHAL AND THE ARTIST. When Marshal Lefebvre, in 1807, invested Dantzic, the celebrated engi- neer Bousmard put it in a condition to sustain a regular siege. General Kalkreuth, over whom Bousmard exercised much influence, had under his command a garrison of 12,000 Prussians and three Russian batta- lions. For the attack-Marshal Lefe- bvre led on a mixed multitude of French, Poles, and Germans, to the number of 16,000. He always showed his soldiers an example of modesty and courage; the Marshal of the Empire never forgot that he had risen from the ranks, but was always fore- most in mounting a breach or leading on a forlorn hope. Two months, however passed on, Dantzic continued impregnable. It was certainly not an unreasonably long time to spend in reducing so strong a place, yet Napoleon became impatient. He who had astonished the universe with the rapidity of his invasions and conquests, and who re-   cently had reduced the Kingdom of   Prussia to obe...

Woods, Mr. J »hu Bateman, and Mr. John Higham waited upon his Excellency the Governor ou Tuesday morning with regard to the pearling question. Mr. Maitiaud Brown M.L.C. introduc- ing the deputation, said their object was to ask His Excellency to consider an offer which they made to lease the pearling banks nt Sharks Bay from the Government at a rent at the rate of £1,000 per annum for three years with the right of renewal. The circumstances which had lcd to that proposal had been the unsatisfactory state of matters which had existed for some time past at Sharks Bay as affecting the pearling industry. His Excellency already had had represen- tations made to him on that subject and he need not further allude to them. It was considered by tho European pearlers that the offer made was a reasonable one -one qui...

LORD DERBY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

LORD DERBY, -* A series of " Letters to Eminent States- men " aro now appearing in the St. James' Gazette, by "A Sycophant." Li the issue of November 11 "the subject" is Lord Derby, and, after referring to the earlier political career of the statesman, the writer observes :-" Your marked success in carty i ug outryour long-conceived policy at the Colonial Office none conltt question. Your object, as 1 have al« tiys understood it, has been to disgt«si juiir fellow-countrymen with the rétention of their foreign possessions ; and this really statesmanlike policy you pushed with a vigour and resolution in the case of New Guinea and the New Hebrides, as well as with respect to South Africa, which have never yet beeu appreciated. The detesta- tion felt for your name in all our Colonies should measure the.gratitude which wein England ought to feel towards you for thus deliberately incurring obloquy in our best interests.

WANT OF A PUBLIC HOSPITAL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

WANT OF A PUBLIC HOSPITAL. To the Editor. Sir,-Permit me to bring before the public, through the medium of your columns, an important question seriously affecting the welfare of the least wealthy, and therefore most numerous portion of the community of this city, if not of tho colony at large. My reason for moving in the matter just now is that I am informed my opinion has lately been quoted with reference to the system in force for the management of the local hospital. Perth being the metropolis of a large colony, is the natur- al centre to which all serious cases of illness, especially those requiring surgical interference, necessarily gravitate. The need therefore for a thoroughly well organised public hospital cannot for a moment be questioned. It would be of mcalcuablo benefit to the community did such an institution exist. Have we not got a colonial hospital, and what more is required, is the argument with which my proposition for a general hospital would certainly be met. My ...

A Nice Rhyme. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

A Nice Eh} me. " Maria," said Mr. Jonos, who has been "trying- his hand at spring poetry. " I've written a sonnet."' " llave you, dear ?" said Maria sweetly as she nibbled the slate pencil she was holding for Willie. " Why do you call it a sonnet ?" " Oh," answered Jones loftDy, " because it will rhyme so nicely with bonnet." Maria thought she detected a latent sarcasm. " You might have said hat." she murmured demurely. " Why hat?" asked Jones with interest. "It would rhyme so nicely with fiat," purred Mrs. Jones. A silence that might have been felt ensued. The chief of a band of savages lately brought to Franoe was, on lauding at Havre, questioned by a reporter of a local paper as to whether he had ever seen any Europeans before. " Seen them ! Ay, and lasted thera many a time !" was the ingenuous reply. " Yes, sir," said the entomologist, " I can tame flies so that when I vhistlo they will come and alight on my head." " Pshaw !" said the baldheaded man, " that's nothing, They come ...

Fellow Mourners. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

Fellow Mourners. After the funeral of a friend, Charles Dickens confessed that 'of course .1 made an ass of myself, and did the wrong thing-, as I invariably do at a funoral.' He proceeded to explain that, arriving at the house of his late friend, be was met in the hall by an elderly gentleman, who extended his haul. Presuming this to be a friend whom he had met somewhere but had for- gotten, ho shook the gentleman by the hand, saying at the same time-' We meet on a sad ocoasion.' ' Yes, indeed,' was the reply. ' Poor dear Sir James.' (This with a long-drawn sigh.) Dickens passed on to the dining-room where several other friends were congregated, and where for a time he quite forgot his friend in the hall ; but presently he ivas reminded of that affecting meeting by the entrance of the elderly gentleman carrying before him a tray ful of hats adorned with long mourning bands, - and bo high was the pile as to almost hide % him from view. Tho elderly gentleman's pesition in society was...

REPRESENTATIVES FOR THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

REPRESENTATIVES FOR THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. That Mr. Berry has an appearance not the most prepossessing is not his fault. That he puts in h's wherever he should leave them out aud leaves thom out wherever he sbouid put them in, is his misfortune. He scarcely can be called responsible for these untoward peculiarities. But that they make him a most inappropriate Agent General for the colony of Victoria cannot be doubted. Por such au office, good address, presence, social position, are half the battle. Gould a more gro- tesque successor then Mr. Berry have been found for Mr. Murray Smith P Still the exigencies of party Government have forced Mr. Berry as Açent General upon the Victorian Ministry. And yet a journal which to-day informa us of this fact, de- plored on Saturday that the exigencies of a different constitution had forced Mr. Steero upon our Government in a some- what similar capacity. Had we the same sort of Government, it said, as that Berry choosing one, we should have had a ...

UNPUNISHED CRIME IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

UNPUNISHED CRIME IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. e» The Norman Chronicle, Normanton, Gulf of Carpentaria, says there is much difficulty in administering the law on the border between Queensland and the Northern Territory in consequence of the boundary not having been surveyed. As an instance it gires the following : " Not long ago a man well known in North Queensland was travelling cattle to Western Australia, and when near Settlement Creek, which is recognised as the bordor line, it suited him to have a quarrel with three or four of hie hands who had been in his aervice for nearly ti year without receiving any pay. This quarrel result* ed in the men being discharged, and told to go and look for their money. The men obtained summonses under the Masters and Servant Act, and in some cases tho police actually served them, but they could not swear this had been dons in Queens- land; the employer knowing this paid no attention to the service, and the mea were left without redress." &l...
