OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 October 1880

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. A Government Gazette extraordinary issued on Friday, notifies for general information, that " His Honor Edward Douglass Harvest, Colonel in Her Majesty's Army, and Senior Military Officer in command of Her Majesty's Land Forces in West ern Australia, has this day, in pursuance of Her Most Gracious Majesty's Letters Patent, and the Royal Instructions therein referred to, taken the oaths of office and assumed the Administration of the Government of the colony." OUR Albany friends are evidently by no means well disposed towards the writer of a letter upon the subject of a public meeting on the harbour question, which appeared in a late issue of a con- temporary. We have received another communi- cation, signed " Glass-eye-Curious," on the same subject, in addition to the oue which we published on Friday last, which would lead us to infer that "One who was present" is certainly the most unpopular man in Albany. As for his remarks about '* gentlemen "...

FARM AND STATION. WOOL GROWING ANO MERINO BREEDING [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 October 1880

ÏAfiM ANO STATÏ8N. WOOL GROWING ANO MERINO BREEDING Br Mb. J. S. H. Schmidt. Having concluded the more theoretical part and j the preliminaries of the subject of sheep-breeding, I shall pass over to wool-growing properly speak- ing, and I begin by enumerating the most important points to which wool-growers should devote their attention. These are-knowledge of the wool in the shape of a single fibre as well as of the whole fleece, its natural formation on the sheep's back as well as washed and shorn. A successful wool* grower must know the qualities of the wool which are valued by manufacturers, for if ignorant of them he is not likely to produce an article that possesses j the qualities desired and prized by » manufacturer of superior materials. In order to become thorough- ly acquainted with wool, we most study it from i different points of view. Let us begin, therefore, | first of all, to look upon wool in the light of an animal product. Secondly, let us find ont all the J qualiti...

AN UNFORTUNATE OCCURRENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 October 1880

AN UNFORTUNATE OCCURRENCE. To the Editor of the West Australia*. Sir,-Another instance of the officious interfer- ence of the police has just occurred here, and the result in this case has been sadly unfortunate. A ' respectable man, au immigrant,, nominated by Mr. T.Hayward and In his. employ, was, on his late visit to Bunbury, accosted by an officious con stable in broad daylight, and required to give his name. He did so, and this policeman passed on : but, later in the evening, another constable met bim, and put the same question. The man refused to give his name the second time, saying that he j was a free man, and had already told his name to one policeman. The constable thereupon marched him to the look-up. On arriving there, the man did give his name, but, for some inexplicable rea- son, he was kept in durance vile all night i ~Now it is well known that in free England the j peasantry consider the fact of having been in pri- son as a deep degradation, and one which damages am...

Our correspondent, having chronicled the par- j ticulars connected with the suicide of the un fortunate man Cunnold, referred to in Mr. Hayward's letter (which appears in another column) thus proceeds : The weather has been delightful here of late, but on all sides the want of rain is urgently felt, and a longer drought will seriously retard the progress of the crops.

NATIVE PROTECTORS—A SUGGESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 October 1880

NATIVE PROTECTORS-A SUGGESTION. To the Editor of the West Australia*. Sir,-You held over my letter about native missions for some considerable time,-its length was probably quite sufficient reason for your having been obliged to do so. And I only mention the fact as an excuse for again appearing before the fublic so soon after its publication. lu that letter suggested that steps should be taken by the Government to ascertain the plan on which some of our neighbour colonies set to work in fulfilling their duty in regard to the remnant of black tribes still remaining in the settled districts of their provinces. To-day I crave space for a few lines in regard to a suggestion which I have to make for promoting the welfare of the blacks at the North, and for maintaining a continuance of the hitherto (on the whole) fairly satisfactory relations subsisting be- tween the natives and ourselves. I say fairly satis- factory, because when these relations are compared with the hostile attitude wh...

A!SUICIDE, AND A CUBIOUS CIRCUM ,. . " . STANCE. To the Editob of the West Australia. .$nt¿-»A sad occurrence took place here on Friday last, a man in my employ (Albert Con nold by name) having committed suicide by shooting himself. Cunnold came out as an immigrant from England in the Daylight about five years ago, and has (with the exception of a few weeks) been in my employ the whole tiuia .ince he arrived ; bnt has never had good health. On Thursday, having been ill for several days, he started to Bunbury to see the doctor. Dur- ing the evening one of the police asked him his name, etc., which he at once gave, Soon after ten, p.m., another policeman saw him and ashed him the same questions. Cunnold having taken during the evening three glasses of brandy, and thinking the policeman had no right to interfere with him, told him he was a free man, and re- fused to answer any further questions. The policeman then told him he must go with him to the station, which he did at once, quiet...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, OCT. 22, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 October 1880

TME WEST AESTSÂMAN. Yionajîs et Audax PERTH, FRIDAY, OCT. 22, 1880. When- Mr. Peabse, in February last, made his election speech atr Fremantle and advo- cated the immediate introduction of a sys- tem of ministerial responsibility, he was asked by an elector whether ne was in favour of one Legislative Chamber, under such a system, or of two. Mr. Peabse said in reply that he was in favour of one, and instanced Natal as a colony where he believed ministerial responsibility, with a single Legislative Chamber, obtained. Now it so happens that Natal at that time was a colony in the same category as Western Australia. Legislation was carried on by a single Chamber it is true, but nearly half the members of that Chamber were nominees of the Crown, and the Governor, as here, was the Premier. The form of Government had not always been the same. Previous to 1875 Natal enjoyed representative institutions more closely allied to our own-institu- tions in fact upon which our own were supposed te b...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 October 1880

8££ASI8HA1 NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. We notice in a contemporary the following statement relating to the late arbitration case : " He" (the Commissioner of Railways) staked bia repu tatiou we believe, upon the remeasurement, and that mea- surement shows exactly what Mr. Thomas stated iu bia affidavit was correct-namely that the contractor had been overpaid some thousands of pounds. If the arbitrators chose to ignore this altogether, surely the Commissioner cannot be blamed. The public must see the marked con- trast between the way the Northern Railway, with which Mr. Thomas had nothing to do, was carried out, and the Eastern line for which he is solely responsible. The con- struction of the hitter has gone on without a hitch of any kind, and the work is being carried out rapidly and well." This means, in plain English, that the public has been victimised by the arbitrators, who, bound to do justice between the Government and the con contractor, have, on the contrary, acted unjustly,...
