Our Fish Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
Our Fish Supply. One morning this week the streets of Perth echoed with the once familiar cry of " Whiting !" We say once familiar, for of late this delectable note had been al- together missing from the gamut of the local fish hawkers. The fact of the matter is the supply of this palatable fish, which once abounded in our river, is rapidly diminishing, and the sooner some effective steps are taken for its preservation the better It is stated by those who are best in a position to furnish the information, the fishermen themselves, that, last year, the whole take of whiting in the river Swan, throughout the season, did not exceed what in former years might and used to be netted in a week. Of course a diminution in the supply means a corres- ponding augmentation in the price of this and other fish. This diminution and this augmentation are already being felt by auxions housekeepers, and there can be no doubt that as population increases this question of our fish supply will have to be...
A Plea for Witnesses and Juryman. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
A Plea for Witnesses and J uryman. The protracted sittings of the Supreme Court now being held, again invite atten- tion to an abuse which through ancient is not venerable. We allude to the discom- forts to which jurymen and witnesses are subjected, by reason of the absence of any accommodation for these important fac-' tors in the administration of justice. -Even if juries .we're set aside, as some desire, by no possibility could a trial be had without witnesses. The Judges and W the bar do not constitute the entire ma- chinery needful for a trial of any sort ? We are far from saying that even these exalted functionaries are supplied with the best and most healthful accommoda- tion in the present building. Yet some-., thing, more or less, is done to treat thcnt in a respectful and becoming manuel*. Jurymen and witnesses, however, arc alto- gether left out in the cold,-or in the heat, as the case may be. They are served with legal documents in the name of the Queen» and they are pun...
SUPPLEMENTARY TELEGRAMS. [Collated from our Eastern files.] LONDON, March 19. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
SUPPLEMENTARY TELEGRAMS* -+? [Collated from our Eastern files.] London, March 19. Last night in the House of Commons,, on moving the Navy Estimates. Mr. Hibbert, Secretary to the Admiralty, announced that twenty additional armour plated vessels, twenty-five unarmoured vessels, and fifty-four torpedo boats are being built for the Imperial Government March 20. It is considered to be not unlikely that. the Treasury, ou the ground of economy» will refuse to ratify the concession recent- ly agreed to by the War Office and the Navy Department, by which naval and military officers serving in the colonies were to be allowed to draw the pensions, to which they aro entitled for service in. the Imperial forces.
BANQUET TO MR. MURRAY SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
BANQUET TO MR. MURRAY SMITH. Mr. Murray Smith who is about to relinquish the Agent Generalsbip ot Victoria was entertained at a banquet last night. The Duke of Cam brid tro presided, and in proposing the health, of the guest of the evening, passed _ warm eulogy upon Mb services in London. Mr. Murray Smith in re- plying expressed his firm conviction that Australia would be the inevitable heir of France and Germany in the Pacific. The Duke of Cambridge ia replying to the toast of hisibwn health advised the Australian Colonies to initate the system of defence adopted by Victoria.
SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
SUPREME COURT. When the case of a man named Ritchie .charged withunlawfully wounding another man named Shepherd, at Fremantle, was -called on at the opening of the Supreme -Court on Thursday morning, it transpired that Mr. Shaw who had been retained to -defend the prisoner was not present. Mr. Haynes said he knew thai Mr. Shaw had been retained, and that he intended being in attendance. His Honor said he could not help it; if the Crown Solicitor chose (Jfc proceed with the case, the case must ^goon. Mr. Shaw ought to have been "-present. The Crown Solicitor said it had been specially arranged between bimBelf .and the Acting Attorney General, who was attending to other business, that he ?(the Crown Solicitor) should take this .case that morning; but there certainly was no wish on the part of the prosecu- tion to take any seemingly unfair advant- age of the prisoner. His Honor said he would leavp the matter entirely in the learned counsel's hands, and, eventually it was agreed to post...

I Undeb date April 6, our Victoria Plains -correspondent writes:-"We had a few cool aud cloudy days last week, with raiu on the 3Istmlt. aud 1st inst., when a heavy -storm of rain crossed the northern part of the district, but only reached a few miles -south of Berkshire. We want more rain to start the grass, for feed is getting -scarce.-I hear that an attempt to form a cricket club is being made. A few years a,%o there were three cricket clubs îu the district, rut all died out. I hope the next will be more fortunate. There are sever- al very good cricketers here, but no one -seems to care about the trouble of prgan ising.and keeping together a club ; in fact ills a very difficult matter with a scatter-' ed population, few of whom can find time to attend practice meetings.-There ao Esars to be a great deal of sickness m andaragan at present, some rather serious^ '«ases being reported there.

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. 9th April, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. -* PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. 9th April, 1886. In business circles attention has been engrossed during the past few days by two occurrences which are bound to have the most serious effect upon the commercial future of our colony. The incident that has naturally caused the greater excitement is the undoubted discovery of an auriferous tract of Country in the north-eastern district. Though the site of the fields is 370 miles from the port of Derby, and the number of prospectors at work cannot be more than a score or two, and their appliances probably meagre, it is stated that already four hundred onnoes of the^preciouB metal have reached Derby, two hundred and fiftyounces of which are said to be on board the Otway. It may fairly, therefore, be looked upon as a certainty that for many months to come this colony will be the theatre of a rush from all parts of the world, and that the volume "of trade transacted here will be vastly increased. Some apprehensi...
The Western Mail. PERTH, SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 18860. GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
%^wnSail PERTH, SATURDAY, APRIL 10,1880.. Last Tuesday was a red letter day for the colony of Western Australia. On that day the most part of the population heard the good news that the prognostications of findiug gold in a payable amount were if not actually realised, as near that desir- able consummation as they could he without positively touching it. That gold, and in considerable quantities would be found in this colony bas been the general hope, if not the general conviction of most people here, since Sir SoDEErcK Murchison gave his view, on scientific grounds, in it« favour. His opinion has since been fortified by the researches of Mr. Habdman on the Ord and Margaret Rivers, and further confirmed by the discoveries of practical miners such ks Messrs. Hall and Slattery. But we are so habituated to disappoint- ments in Western Australia, and the delays in absolute demonstration of tthe existence of the supposed gold .field were so numerous and protracted that confidence began t...
Making Good Use of Mr. Fraser. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
Making Good use of Mr. Fraser. The suggestion that advantage could be taken of the presence in England of the Colonial Secretary to enlist Mr. Fraser's services in connexion with the immigra- tion question is one that commends itself to ali who have the best interests of the colony at heart. Such private or indivi- dual agency, as it may be called, would pro- bably be productive of very beneficial re- sults. It has beeu strongly recommended in the House by Mr. Burges, Mr. Crow- ther, Mr. Padbury, and other members, and instances-were not wanting to illus- trate its value. Nothing is so convincing to a listener as information derived, not from oflicial publications, but from per- sonal experience. A book may be com- piled iu a very attractive manuor, but the information it contains may appear to au intending emigrant too glowing to be true. Ho may read that wages are ex- traordinarily high ia the new couutry to whicli his attention is directed, and that living is fairly cheap. He may...
The Pen of the Missionary. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
The Pen of the Missionary. I There are many ways of not doing a thing. When the Hibernian orator re 1 proved the violence of his audience, who were euraged at the interruptions of a turbulent fellow amongst them, he exclaimed, " Whatever you do don't throw him into the Liffey," and-straightway it was done. And, if we were to say similarly of every pestilent libeller .of this colony, the probability is that we should only elevate him to a pinnacle of notoriety. It is on this principle that, as a rule, it is often advisable to pass unheeded the snarling vituperations of vagabond critics who, liaviug turned their backs upon the colony, lose no opportunity of slandering it. But there are times when it becomes the imperative duty of the press to defend the community from direct insult. And this is the case in respect of the publication of a very scandalous letter, by a now well-known clergyman, in a Melbourne journal-a grossly offensive libel npon oar northern settlers. To what are we to...
An Immigration Danger Ahead. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
An Immigration Danger Ahead. A Queensland contemporary tells a etory of a young man whose example may yet prove to this and other colouies a bitter scourge. This ' young man from the coun- try '-for it appears he came from a bush township-visited the local immigration home, on the arrival of a batch of domes- tic servants from England, and, seeking from the matron an introduction to the prettiest of the new comers, offered her an engagement of a kind which employers of the opposite sex eau never compete with. His offer consisted of a plain gold ring and his young affections. The offer was accepted ; and the danger is that the thing will spread. The expectations of the maj- ority of the young ladies who, under the designation of domestic servants, arrive in these colonies from Great Britian are already sufficiently expansive. They have learnt, before condescending to take ship to our shores, that at the antipodes all tilings go by contraries. Fifteen shillings a week, Irish may apply...
