THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGIANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, OCT. 19, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 October 1880

WIST MSTIAMM. Vigkans et Audax 1 PEBTH, TUESDAY, OCT. 19, 1880. i 'What is one man's meat is another's poison,' we frequently hear said ; and, in glancing over some late utterances of Eng- lish Badicals, we find this proverb most vividly exemplified. Year by year, poli- ticians of the Bbight-Chambeblain-Dilke species turn their eyes apparently with more and more eager longing towards the West, and crave with an ever increasing hunger for the political fleshpots of that great republic which they look up to as the mother of freedom, the happy possessor of the most Eerfect and glorious of institutions which uman ingenuity can devise for the enjoy- ment of men. Some of these politicians openly declare their preference for Gov- ernment of the American type, and do not hesitate to express the hope they entertain that, before many years have passed away, monarchical institutions, now useless and effete, will no longer serve to remind true Britons of a time when their liberties were menaced...

CRICKET. BY ON-LOOKER. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 October 1880

CRICKET. By On-Lookeb. A match that caused considerable interest came off on Saturday afternoon last the 16th inst. on the old cricket ground :-Married v. Single members of the Metropolitan Cricket Club, their respective captains being H. S. Sanford and J. C. H. James. It was generally considered that the Benedicts would be out of the game, but the result shows they are well able to hold their own, even against their younger and more practised opponents. (Can- didates for matrimony will please note this.) The severe defeat may be attributed to the splendid bowling of Jos. Hillman, against which the batsmen seemed entirely unable to defend their wickets, E. Sholl being the only single man in either innings who obtained double figures. The fielding throughout was fair, and quite as good as could be expected from ,the very little practice most of the members have had. In justice to the round arm bowlers, it is only fair to state, the ground was much against them. Not having been either...

A JERK IN FROM POINT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 October 1880

A JERK IN FROM POINT. . To tue Editob of the West Australian. Sip,-A letter which appeared in last Wednes- day's Inquirer signed " J. C. H. James, Captain M.C.C." caused myself and others a good deal of surprise. As cricketers, we must complain of the levity.with which the ' Captain' treats a most im -portant subject. The < Captain' evidently has never read Lord Byron,-his studies in literature having (1 imagine from this production) been confined to a time when the flowing, easy, natural style of the great' poet would not have been considered quite correct. If his studies had been more extensive lw would have recollected that His Lordship says : .this Russ so witty Could pun, like Nero, o'er a burning city. And, unless his success in the character of Ulysses had really tempted him to pose, as another shining light of ancient times, we might have been saved the pain of that horrible joke about the dentist and the gums. Attempted classicism in manner of expression, and lab...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) GERALDTON, October 14. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 October 1880

C8SNTSY iETTElS. (From our own correspondents.) GERALDTON, October. 14. This afternoon the remains of the late Mrs. Geo. Eliot, the beloved wife of our most esteem- ed Government Resident, were conveyed to their last resting place. This benevolent lady, who had been invalided for several years, be- came dangerously ill on Thursday last, and apprehensions were then entertained that the inevitable was approaching. From that time until the hour of her demise, medical aid was in attendance, but no hopes were given of her recovery. Members of the family within avail- able distance were speedily summoned to her side, and on Tuesday morning she expired. By the steamer to day, other of her numerous family arrived in time to attend her funeral, which was one of the most largely attended that have taken place in Geraldton. Mrs. Eliot had reached almost the limit of three score and ten. Her life has been one of unostentatious useful- ness, and her death will be mourned by a large number of sor...

RAILWAY CROSSINGS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 October 1880

RAILWAY CROSSINGS.     'To.THE Editor of the West Australian. SIR,- It is full time the attention of the City Council was directed to the way in which the railway authorities are fixing the railway crossing   gates, obstructing traffic and endangering life and limb of travellers. In the whole course of my experience I never saw such an arrangememt where a line runs through a town, for a narrow gauge line formation width (about 12 feet) ruling the width for the street-crossing formation, as in Stirling Street, which is now decidedly dangerous. There is no reason at all why the width in the roadway should not be twice that across the line. Any one who understood such matters would have made such provision. Perhaps the Commissioner of   Railways would like the City Couucil to tell him   how it's done.   If the numerous crossing gates in this town and on other lines of traffic are not automatic, the Railway De...
