TIME ALLOWANCE FOR YACHTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880

TIME ALLOWANCE FOR YACHTS. To TUE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN: SIB,-At a'late general meeting of the Perth Yacht Club held for the''purpose of "revising the rules of that association,!a question was raised as to allowing ' time ' in the case of the smaller yachts engaged in a race; but, as no equitable arrange- ment could be arrived at, for handicapping the larger boats, the proposal Was negatived-and, I think, very properly so. I was aware of the diffi- culty experienced in England for many years past, in~the--matter-of~handicapping-yachtsV"and*the' dissatisfaction often caused by the system of arbit- rary time-allowance,-there being no defined rule on the subject This I gathered from the letters of correspondents to the Field newspaper. A few evenings' ago, on reading the account of a regatta recently held iu England; my attention was attracted to what appeared to be an authoritative scale published in that journal, showing the allow- ance which ought to be allowed in the case o...

FENCING THE RAILWAY LINE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880

FENCING THE RAILWAY LINE. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-In late issues of the West Australian yon published a letter, and made some remarks, having reference to the fencing of our Fremantle-Guildford railway line. You inquire how it is that this fenc- ing should be necessary in Western Australia when it is" found wholly unnecessary in the American States/" T do not think that either you or your correspondent are singular in being unable to çive to this question a satisfactory answer. The fencing of the line right through has probably cost a con- siderable sum, will put the public to an immense amount of inconvenience, aud in Perth has com pletely^-disfigured very many of the streets. It must also necessarily entail a considerable animal expenditure in-the shape of gate-keepers' salaries. I*write;^w"W-pouit 'ouï'whStTthiûTrproves couclusively.that this expense and inconvenience is quite needless. The line now is practically open, and has been all along-the crossings all ...

HORTICULTURAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880

HORTICULTURAL SHOW. PATBON : His Excellency the Governor. LADT PATRONESS: Lady Robinson. PRESIDENT : Mr. P. A. Gugeri, J.P. VICE-PBESIDENT : Mr. Faun- tleroy. SECBETABY: Mr. Urquhart. The anticipations that the October show of the Horticultural Society would be in most respects an excellent one were abundantly realised. The programme, which was of considerable length, offered a proportionally large combination of at- tractions; and, if variety be as charming as the proverb declares, surely no oneneed complain of the present year's show. The improvements ob- servable now as compared with previous shows were apparent. Nor were these improvements due to a more favorable season, but rather to the application of more taste and skill in the cultiva- tion and preparation of the exhibits. The hideous kerosene tins, which in'all their native ugliness, were wont to do duty as show cases,' have been relegated to the obscurity of the rubbish heap, and in their place we have neat, if not'ornamen...

"OBSERVER" AND THE BUNBURY POLICE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 November 1880

OBSERVER AND THE BUNBURY POLICE.   To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.       SIR, - In your issue of the 22nd inst. is a letter signed " Observer " giving an account of the death, by suicide, of Albert Cunnold, and attributing it to " the officious interference " of the police. Now this is a very serious charge to make against any one, and before doing so "Observer" should be quite certain that what he stated is correct. The police are debarred from replying to such letters, and the public naturally think, there being no con- tradiction, that these statements are unanswerable. I have no intention to stand forth as the champion of the force, but in justice to the Bunbury police, I ask you to publish what I think will be found to be the true facts of this unfortunate case. (I hear the Inspector of Police has already made the fullest enquiry into it, and reported to headquarters.) It appears that in the early part of the month this ...

SiK,-Will you allow me through your columns to draw the attention of those desirous of becoming shareholders in the above Company to the fact that a printed " application form for shares " is on the second sheet of each prospectus. Applications for shares are being received, and as I notice each applicant writes the whole form (as advertised) I am led to believe that the printed form has not been observed when reading the prospectus. I would also request you to alter the name of the Company's Bank to "The Western Australian Bank," instead of " The West Australian Bank, Limited " (as in the present advertisement), for I am given to understand that the former is the cor- rect designation of the Bank in question.

THE ART OF COLOURING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 November 1880

THE ABT OF COLOUBING. v n To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AÜBTEALIAN. SIB,-I notice that your contemporary the In- quirer continues to publish the scurrilous effusions of that master of the art of psendography, " Tiger Hugo." A paragraph in his last contribution, re- ferring to the private affairs of a respectable young tradesman in this town, has excited a feeling of indignation in the breasts of those who are ac- quainted with the true circumstances of the case; but even if " Tiger Hugo's" version were correct -which it is not-I fail to see that the publica- tion of matters relating to people's private and domestic affairs comes within the province of a journal professing to have a claim to respectability. I could give the real facts of the " very curious case" to which " Tiger Hugo" refers, but have no doubt that you would, very properly, refuse to publish them, on the ground that your columns were only open for the ventilation of matters of public interest. My only object therefore, i...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, November 1st. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 November 1880

SOüfiTCÄY IETTEIS. (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, Kovember 1st. His Excellency accompanied by his Private Secretary, His Honor the Chief Justice, and a number of other prominent citizens (inclu- ding Lady Robinson and several more ladies) made a trial trip by the railway from Perth to Fremantle on Saturday last. The jour- ney was performed, it is said, at a very easy pace, in 29 minutes. Looking at the fact that the linn is only just completed to Perth, and is still in the hands of the contractors, the Works Department must have fully satisfied themselves with the stability of the " permanent way" to have consented to the journey being performed at a speed to fully test the workman- ship of the contractor. It is reported down here that the Commis- sioner of Railways is so convinced that Mr. Bobb will do his work well, that when the line is completed to Guildford ho intends doing the distance from Guildford to Fremantle in thirty minutes. I hear there is to be another timb...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 2, 1880. THE GOLDEN FLEECE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 November 1880

WEST AïïSTSAMM. VioiLANs ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 2, 1880. THE GOLDEN FLEECE. ] "SHEEP have golden feet, and wherever the print of their footstep appears, the land is turned into gold," says a Spanish proverb, which was never realized in old Spain as it has been in young Australia. The birthday of the nineteenth century found Australia with some couple of thou- sand sheep as the whole of her stock, and wool looked on by her colonists as of no value, being cut off simply to rid the the sheep of an encumbrance, and left rot- ting on the ground. Eighty years later, the value of wool exports from the Australasian colonies approaches £20,000, 000, and Australian fine wools form the chief supply for the markets of the world. The name of MACABTHUB will long be revered by Australians as illustrative of that foresight, energy, and determination, which, working against manifold difficulties and discouragements, first laid the founda- tion of a wealth which has grown with such wonderful r...
