POLITICAL SITUATION. THE NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION. BY TELEGRAPH. PERTH, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
POLITICAL SITUATION. THE NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION. Br Telkgbaph. [from OUR CORRBSPOKBBHT.3 Pbbth, Friday. In the legislative Assembly on Tuesday Mr. F. Piesse, Leader of the Opposition, tabled the following motionThat tlie Government does not command the confidence. of this House." Direct challenges of "this kind have been infrequent in the past, -and motions which some held to be tantamount to motions of no-oonfidence were not so- treated by the then Premier (Sir John Forrest), although .at other'times they were by him placed in - the -same eategoiy as the direet' attacks made upon his administration. Oh all the latter occasions it has been customary to adjourn the House, in accordance with con* stitutional usage. Mr. Piesse was aware of _ this, but seems to have hardly been prepared for the -very short period of adjournment asked for by the Premier, which of course, brought forth yesterday. (Thursday), from the Leader of the Opposition, the motion tabled by hitn (quoted above) on Tues...

Every available seat in the building was occupied, upwards of ISO persous being present. The hall was tastefully decorated with flags and flowers, and when the youthful, neatlv dressed performers were ranged on the stage on the. completion of an overture, ..the aspect was extremely pleasing.

AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES. SOME STRAIGHT-OUT TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES. SOME STRAIOHT-OUT TALE. A pretty story was told the other day in the Federal Parliament by a member, speaking on the subject of agricultural colleges. Said be:— " Few, if any, of the farmers* sons have taken advantage of. the oppor tunities offered for education by these institutions., I do not know what are the reasons for this, but I do know of the results of the education imparted to some who have gone through the full course. In one case a student had gone through the "full course, arid was enabled through his credentials to obtain employment upon an agricul tural and pastoral holding. Almost one of the first duties'"which he was asked to perform was that of killing a sheep for household purposes. It is scarcely to be credited that although he had been three years in one of the, best colleges of Australia, he' did not" even know how to kill a sheep. This, although it sounds incredible, is probably only too true, and serves to show how much more attention" ...

THE FEDERAL POSTAL BILL The "Rev. George Hay is an Inde pendent Presbyterian, and .acts up to the title of his denomination.' Says he "" "Why should sweepstakes be abolished or interfered with at all within the Commonwealth.1 Is a man not at liberty to do with his money whatever he likes. If in the exercise of his ■ judgment he ehoost s-to-back a horse to win to the amount of £1. and pays that £1, who has any right to interfere?

CANADA. A COMPARISON WITH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
CANADA. COMPARISON WITH" AUSTRALIA. The Duke and Duchess-of Cornwall j and York's tour through Canada. j which is now- being reported in the cables, has drawn particular attention ■ to that interesting British^olonv. Canada has a greater population than Australasia, and a.greater area, hut it must he remembered that an immense portion of the Dominion lies in particularly inclement; latitudes. According to the census of 1801, the population of Canada was 4,-833.000. while that of Australasia wns3.078.ooo The French Canadians number 1.400,000, and thev increase at a relatively greater rate than their fellow-countrymen of Anglo-Saxon descent. Quebec contains 1.200,000 of them Great numbers have passed into the United States during the last twenty years. Bearing in mind the aggregate of the population, the com paratively small size of the cities is remarhable. Tn 1897. Montreal had 250,000, Toronto 195.987. Quebec 85,000, Ottawa 55.000. Hamilton 50,000, St. John N B. 42,500. Winni peg 3...
WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
WISE AND OTHERWISE. Recently a farmer who has resided all his life considerably under a hundred miles from. Wagin, and who; had never previously seen that town, or any other in fact of each mag*, nilude, visited it on show day. He sauntered round the town, gazing in wonderment on the three ahd four storey buildings, but ho surprise was expressed until he saw the tele graph line along the street. " I say, Mich," he said to his companion, "What do you think of them new-fangled fences, with, one wire ? Them's those new-chum, tothersiders wot's put them up, but they'll darned soon find out their sheep'll get out." The speeches at the banquet on Show night were of the usual scratch-back order. Even the Governor^ said nothing that had a ten dency to make one's hair stand on end. They all, in fact, said nice things regarding each other, nearly ate the caterer out of house and home, finished up the. grog, and after luBtily cheering each other dispersed. Mr. Charles Somers (Minister for Land...

Judging of Live Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
Judging of Xdve Stool;. In the increasing drift; of public opinion in favor of single judging some excellent contributions are being made by several of the leading stock Journals of Great Britain. As an example the Live Stock Journal says : —"The chief claims which plural judging seems to possess are, first, that many consider that two heads are better than one, and, secondly, the facilities it affords for a judge to conceal his prediliction in favor of a horse, or his dislike to, him. Now this is jnst what exhibitors would like to know, and the reason for withholding information which would be useful and instructive to/them is difficult to see. The fact, however,Remains that there is a fine old crusted custom amongst judges of making a mystery of .their individual opinions when two of them disagree, but no such con sideration extends to the unfortunate referee, who is called into the ring and has to face the music, whilst the gentlemen who are the prime cause of his troubles affect...
THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
THE FARM. Mr. Henry Chit tick, Harden, writing in The Town and Country Journal, says: " I bad the wolly aphis in my orchard for a number of years, and after trying a great many different solutibns without any beneficial re sults, I tried,- as a last resort, turpen tine in its pure state. ' This was applied to the affected trees, before the foliage appeared, with a paint brush. Although it is about nine years ago I applied this remedy, I have seen no sign of the pest since then. Other fruit-growers in this neighbourhood have had the same experience. Some orchardists are in clined to be sceptical about the remedy, but my trees are always open to inspection." . j Some rather extensive observations were made at an American experi- j mental station relative to the feeding of smutty oat hay to cattle. During the winter of 1898, a dairyman near Rozeman lost 12 cows. The animals had been receiving clover and lucerne, previous to being fed the oat hay. The oat field was so badly smutted ahat...
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
Chapter . I1L Ten years hare passed by. It is now the middle of August,and par liament has some days been prorogued. The member for Blsektown has. gone down to his eountry seat to spend a weeks in absolute uuiefc and enjoy ment of home; for although public life sadly interferes with domestic virtues, he is a home-loving man. He is still young, has plenty of confidence in himself, and is content to wait his time, trusting that when his chance does come he may know how to use it. Yes, Cuthbert Wrey, the member for Bb-cktown, is not only an ambitious man, but, as far as he has gone, a successful one. ■He has been in parliament:-about seven years. He could scarcely hare believed the. truth, when he found his : first attempt , successful. No one knows exactly how candidates are brought forward and matters .managed, but if a man chopBes to drop a hint to > the proper people that he is willing, at his own charge, to lead a forlori | hope, it is not so very long before he is allowed to d...
STORYTELLER. THE BLATCHFORD BEQUEST [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
STORYTELLER. THE BLftTCHFORD BEQUEST He yielded again and again in - theory; but he could not bring him self- to do so .in deed. However the conflict might end, there was one thing j he felt he would not do—he would not j read that letter before he destroyed it. If he committed crime he would remain in ignorance as to its extent and: in fluence on other people's • destinies. Only if right and honour conquered would he read. So he sat on and on, making a good fight—sat-till the Are died out. He would not trust himself to replenish it, and almost laughed as a fantastic thought came to him—how sullen and disappointed the half burned cinders looked. But the candles were living, and would do the work equally well. With a great effort of will h e rose and extinguished them. For some time he sat in darkness; then he found himself searching for his matches. Too well - he kuew why he wanted them. He struck one with an unsteady hand. It went out, but not before be caught sight of his white -c...

ROSEDALE ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
ROSEOALE ESTATE. piY A CoSTBIBtTTOB.] ini6 estate, prettily situated 011 Minmgin Brook, about 10 miles from the rapidly growing township of Narrogin, on the Great Southern Railway, is a striking example of the energy and enterprise of Mr. John Clay ton, the managing-partner of the -well-known contracting and carrying firm of Clayton and Rintoul Bros., Kalgoorlie. It is only 16 months since Mr. Clayton settled in the district, but the visitor at Rose dale Estate to-day might well be excused if, after seeing the wonderfully improved up-to date farm, one doubted its being accomplished i in such a limited period. I The estate consists of 6,000 acres, for the most part first-class agricultural land. The Hinmgin Brook runs right through the centre of the property, ensuring a never-failing sup ply of fresh water, during the driest seasons. The improvements already effected consist of about 80 acres thoroughly cleared and culti vated, the greater part of which is under crop, and looking wel...
