FREMANTLE POLICE COURT. (Before J. G. Slade, Esq., R.M., and Major Finnerty, J.P.) 16TH SEPTEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

FREMANTLE POLICE COURT. {Before J. G. Slade, Esq., B.M., and Major Finnerty, J.P.) 16th September, Jno. McGibbon, and Henry William Isaiah Gillman, were charged with unlawfully, know- ingly, and designedly, pretending to one Henry Albert, that the said H. W. L Gillman was then in posession of certain cattle and sheep, and would deliver them to him, the said Henry Albert, within a certain time, before the maturity of certain bills ; by means of which false pretence the said John McGibbon, and H. W. I. Gillman did then, unlawfully and fraudulently, induce the said H. Albert to accept two bills ; one for £173 10s. and another for £200 with intent thereby to defraud, inas- much as the said H W. I. Gillman had not the said cattle and sheep in his possession, and has not delivered the same. This prosecution was at the instance of the Trustee of the bankrupts estates, Mr. John McCleery. Mr. Sep. Burt appeared as counsel for the prosecution, and Mr. Howell and Mr. Parker were retained for t...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-Will you allow me space for a few re- marks on the subject of the Church Sustentation Fund ? It is against that, the work of the Perth Diocesan Synod, composed largely of laymen, that the objections of your correspondents really lie, and not against the Bishop's pastoral. Before replying to the objections let me point out some of the uses of such a permanent pro- vision for the maintenance of the clergy as the fund will furnish. 1st. It will assist the poorer districts of the colony and all districts in times of exceptional want. The difficulty in raismg the money for the stipend of the deserving clergyman of the Greenough Flats, a district suffering from ex- ceptional losses for several years, and for providing them with a suitable dwelling might convince people of the need of something of this kind when state aid shall be withdrawn. 2nd. It will greatly facilitate the work of the bishop and nominators or their delegates in procuring clergymen...

WHY THE GERALDTON RAILWAY WAS NOT CONSTRUCTED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

WHY THE GERALDTON RAILWAY WAS NOT CONSTRUCTED. To the Editor of the W. A. Times, Sir,-I was conversing with a gentlemen of some position in the colony, about 5 years ago, and our conversation turning upon railways, I was surprised at his telling me that " He would vote for a sum of money to construct railways, at once ; if he felt sure of getting the railways for the money ; but if the money voted would be allowed to be expended hy the government officials of Western Australia, that all the money would be soon drawn from the treasury, and we would have no railways." Alas ! That gentleman's predictions were founded upon a more thorough knowledge of the incompetency of the (supposed) Civil Engineer at the head of the Public Works Department, than what I possessed at that time ; which demerits are proved by their paying £3000 or there away, for three different opinions, whose only merits consist of " their being from the other side." Will those self opinionated officials tell the publi...

GERALDTON. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

GERALDTON. {From a Correspondent.') . We hear a great deal in this part of the colony about the railway operations being suspended, and have noticed that the people connected with it, walk about with a very gloomy ap- pearance, and not nearly as much gas as formerly. The question naturally arises who is in fault, the Government or Contractors? But from, your leader of the 7th Sept., it certainly appears to be the former, and is another of their beauti- ful agreements. I would rather the officials took the first ride in it when finished, ° and at any time would prefer driving in a buggy. We were all very glad to hear of the arrival of the " Daylight" in Fremantle, and shall be very pleased to see Capt. Bush up here again, who is a very great favorite in these parts. Before long we hope tos^the '^Fitzroy" and " Zephyr" with their jolly Captains, who. also ', sail in the same boat with Capt Bush. Capt Marsh is not so well known as the others, having only visited here once about 4 years...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

To the Editor of the W.A. Times. Sir,-I would throw out the following sug- gestions to the employers of labour in the colony, viz :-That they make it a rule to engage none but sober men. Pay good wages, and when the wages become due, pay them cheerfully with a smiling face, not with a countenance like a mute at a funeral. Pay all wages in cash ; dont offer any of your men an order. Sell no wine or sour grape juice (as one of your correspondents calls it), to any of your men, nor allow it to be drunk on your premises. If you wish your farm to prosper, or your establishment to be famed for making good articles, carry out the above rules and by doing so, you will be the means of con- ferring a great permanent good upon your men, and they in return will study your interest. By allowing space for the above in your next issue you will oblige, Yours &c, W.J.P. Perth, 18th Sept. 1875.

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

$§1 Ütestew %ustraüan Firnes. 80LUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRlTKY?9EPTÎM75ERl4rîfi75. J N the news received by the last home mail, there is one item which we cer- tainly cannot but look upon as a back- ward step, and that is the withdrawal of Mr. Oboss's Assaults Bill. The infliction of flogging for aggravate! assaults, and for similar offences committed by habit ual criminals has been argued upon, and variously advocated and condemned for some time past. But we venture, to say that there are few legislators who really doubt the necessity for having recourse to some sharper form of punishment than at present provided for some species of criminals. The difficulty has been, as in many other bills, to define in what particular cases, and under what particular limits such punishment should be administered. j Wê are all aware of the great differ- j ence existing between the man who has become criminal under the influence of a momentary evil influence, and the man, if he deserves the name, who ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-Several complaints have been made of late, respecting the manner in which the duties of Clerk of the Court up here are carried out, and not without, I think, good reason. It is a lamentable fact that you never know when to find the Clerk at his post. Why cannot the hours adopted by the Government in other towns be adhered to in this district ? It is not because there is so much to do that he requires relaxation. If it is that he is too big, then let some one else have it who will do his duty and attend more regularly. Yours, QUIZ. York, Sept. 15th 1875.

TO THE EDITOR OF THT W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

To the Editor of tht W.A. Times. Sir,-The Inquirer of the 8th instant contains a paragraph of which the following is a copy : " It is reported that the private prospecting " party equipped at Albany have struck coal on " the south side of Princess Royal Harbor, thus " fulfilling the anticipations of many scientific "authorities as to the probability of its exis " tence in that neighborhood." Now, I would rejoice at a discovery that would confer so vast a benefit on the community, but it is universally acknowledged that Geology is one.of the exact sciences. As a practical miner, therefore, I have not the slightest hesitation in asserting that the existence of coal in this par- ticular locality is a geological impossibility. , I would be glad to seea specimen of the coal reported as found, or to be informed when and where it can be seen-also, a reference to the i " scientific authorities" mentioned in the para- graph. I wish it to be understood that I do not purpose throwing cold wate...

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. " Who goes there ?" cried the Owl in military twang, as a rustling near roused 'Bim out of a dose. " U No Hoo," said Maggie, with a derisive smile in her eye. " Ha ! ha !" screamed the Owl, convulsed with laughter, " so you know the new literary and musical genius that has risen up amongst us"? " Know him," cried Mag, "know him ! Why that's that dear duck of a fascinating fellow, Jack Head wards Esq., the great Traveller. Oh, I know my dear Jackey," and Maggie went off into the tune of "Charlie is my darling." " Ah !" put in the Owl seriously " that's the star that created such excitement in Guildford. But I say, Maggie,"and the Owl's tone became more serious, " he's a married man." The sulphurous thunderbolt that smote with dread Messrs. Hillman, Ashton, and Smith of late in the Town Hall, could not have caused a greater shock to Maggie, who with flaming eyes cried, "Oh ! the deceitfulness of men ! But" (and here the feminine propensity of injured feeling aw...

GREENOUGH FARMING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

GREENOUGH FARMING. To the editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-How well the cap fits 'Flats man." ' It would appear by his letter to the Herald, of the 4th inst., that he his quite aggrieved because I happened to make a few remarks about fencing &c, in my letter to the W, A. Times. Now I quite agree with him when he tells us of the heavy expense of fencing, the sufferings from the effects of red rust, and the low price of corn, but be forgets to allude to expensive living, money spent in racing, monthly balls, intemperance, Dinners to various eminent men, and such like extravagancies. Don't you think Flats man that if many had made resolutions not to waste their money in one or the other of the above mentioned wa\s they would have had something to spare to erect or repair fences ; I imagine so. Well, I did not anticipate these remarks, but as I had promised to drop you a Une hefore return- ing to York I felt a duty bound to allude to these facts which I have ascertained to be cor...

Sir,-I shall feel obliged if in your next issue, you will do me the favour to correct an error which appears in the notice respecting my resignation which is to take effect in January, 1876, viz -,-that ** the Bishop has exonerated him" (i.e. myself) "from all blame" así maintain that as I have not dono or said anything deserv. ing of blame, I never sought his Lordship's ex- oneration nor has his Lordship, volunteered any. Perhaps at the same time you will allow me to say that while I feel most grateful for the generous sympathy I have received from so many members of the English Church in Perth, ye! any endeavour to retain my ministrations would be vain and entirely opposed to my wishes for the restoration of kindly feelings among ali.

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 September 1875

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Notice to Correspondents :-"Nemesis'' " Sanita3", and others in reply to " U No Hoo" have been received, but are nearly all too strongly worded for our columns. The case is however an exceptional one, and should any dangerous symptoms appear in the case, we shall strain a point, and give " Nemesis" and his friends space. Parishioners' Churchwarden :-In a letter in the last issue of our local contemporary referring to the resignation of Mr. Chas. H. Clifton, as Churchwarden, the Very Rev. Dean Gegg, says that we have " fallen into an error in supposing that the production of the letter at the Vestry was necessary." Now when we wrote the paragraph on the subject in our last issue, we did not for a moment view it as a sectarian question, nor had we any Synodical Statute or its clauses in our mind's eye. We looked at the matter in a purely abstract light, and we thought then, as Ave think now, that the acceptance of all resignations, as well as their production at mee...

COUNTRY NEWS. FREMANTLE. Port Topics. (From our own Correspondent). The sixth anniversary of the Church of Eng- land Young Men's Society was held at the Go- vernment boy's school room on the 17th instant. The members numbered about forty. The society was inaugurated by the Rev. Bostock who while in the colony took very great interest in its developement. Since his departure, the Chairman, Dr. Barnett, has devoted a consider- able amount of time to encourage the members to persevere in carrying out the object for which the society was instituted, and has delivered at various times some very interesting and instructive lectures to them. The Secretary, Mr. F. Dulacher and Mr. Edward Duffield, a committee man, deserve commendation for the time and attention they have given in further- ance of the efforts of the worthy Chairman. Mr. Barry Wood, Mr. T. Stockley King, and William Owston junr., have also evinced great interest in the working of the society. Dr. Barnett and his efficient sta...
