M.C.C. v. PERTH C.C. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

M.C.C. v. PERTH C.C. The return match between the Metropol- itan and Perth CC.'s was played yesterday on the Recreation Ground. Neither club was able to get together its best team, some of the usual members being unable to obtain leave of absence. The toss was won by the M.C.C. captain, Mr. Parker, who elected to bat, and sent in W. K. Courthope and Curtis. Randell and Spencer undertook the bowling ; the services of a wicket keeper were dis pensed with. At the opening play was very slow, six out of the first seven overs being maidens; but the players then sneaked a couple of singles off short ones. Then Curtis drove Spencer smartly for a couple. When ten had gone up C. V". Birch was put on to howl in place of Spencer, off whose bowling nearly all the runs had been made. The score con- tinued to rise, chiefly by means of singles, but few of them were got off Randell's bowl- ing. Curtis finally was cleverly taken in the slips by Spencer. 1 for 22. James succeed- ed, and soon after his...

THE ALBANT LAND OFFICE MAPS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

THE ALBANT LAND OFFICE MAPS. TO THE EdITOE.' 0T~~ Sie,-Allow me space in your columns, to enquire why the charts of these\di8 tricts are not kept in the local o^see at * Albany. A few years ago, when the charts were kept in the court house they were so very incomplete and unsatisfac- tory, that a movement was set on foot to induce the Government to establish a Lan j Office in Albany. The Government not, I suppose, deeming it necessary to establish a regular land office;1 appointed an officer to take charge of the charts, and render information regarding Crown lauds in these parts. Untortunately the persons apppinted were late arrivals in the place, and consequently strangers to the general features of the country, and could not posbibly know the positions of the various districts, their knowledge not extending beyond the neighbourhood of Albany, and correct charts not being come-at-able. I think all will agree that the change from the old to the new sys- tem is only a useless expens...

OUR LONDON LETTER. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

OUR LONDON LETTER. .-. {From our own Correspondent.) By this mail I send the first " Exhibi- tion Letter," written specially for the West Australian, in which is given a general sketch of the progress made at Seuth Kensington, where, owing to the forthcoming Colonial and Indian 'Exhi- bition, so large au amouut of Australian interest will centre. Let me however add a few 'touches' io this outline, which will have a more or less local West Australian colour. Firstly, please bear in mind that Although originally the official title of this Exhibition Was "Indianand Colo- nial/' it is now " Colonial and Indian" a distinction you may think without- a difference. Not so altogether, as despite the^greatesj; ¡literary authority there is a f great deal in '" áhame," and by this trans- '? position,'doubtless, the great " shew" will be familiarly known among Londoners who used to speak of the " Fisheries,*' the " Healtheries, and the "Inventories"1 as the " Colonies"-which you see gives to you...

Sporting. THE PERTH RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

;__ilÄM5__ THE PBBTH BACES. The bye-meeting of the W.A. Turf Club ia drawing near at hand, and it behoves us again to parade the candidates in order that we may see whether we can arrive at any definite opinion as to their probable chances. Else- where the betting market is some guide to the prophetic eouls of sporting writers, but up to the present time the bets that have been made are of a fugitive character, and unquotable. Speculation has resolved itself mostly into the backing of one horse against another, or the laying of odds against double events. In the absence of betting men, who often know more than the owners of the form of horses, the only guides the would-be* backers have are past form and present con- dition. Going upon these lines, I shall endeavour to give my readers some aid in forecasting the results of the chief races on. the afternoon of Tuesday next. Were Tre- mando engaged in the two chief events and. as fit and well as when he won the Queen's, my duties would...

STORM* MEETING AT YvRK._ «_-,-_. fitton A CoEKESPOND^NT.] , ? One of the most stormy meetings ever held in York took plape at the Mechanic's In- stitute there, on Friday evening week last. The Chairman had called a spécial meeting of the Munioipal Council, on his own responsibility, ostensibly ia reconsider the -question of a site for the proposed Town Hall (which question, by the way, had been determined at a meeting of ratepayers on the ^previOvs Saturday) but, from what transpired fetter wards, really for the purpose of 'givîng'the Councillors a hit of his mind.' Only -one, Councillor (Mr. Horley) absented himself. The room was tolerably well filled with rate- payers and others, when the Chairman (Mr. J. H. Monger) called the Council to order, On rising, Mr. Monger said : Gentlemen, I have called you together this -evening, as you know, to reconsider the Town Hall queer turn.

The Pall Mall Gazette and Standard ap- plaud the refusal of the Colonies to acquiesce in the cession of the Islands to France in' any circumstances, and urge that no guarantee is forthcoming that the promise of the French Go- vernment not to export Récidivistes will be of permanent duration.

This lit tie work contains concise and correct statements regarding our colony, its con- stitution, climate, products, towns, and intercommunication. To intendiug emi- grants it, lastly, addresses the following remarks, which can only on two points be criticised adversely. We fear that food can scarcely be described as cheap in Western Australia, uor wages, as compar- ed with the other colonies, high. But, at the same time, when we note the amount of distress which exists amongst the working classes in some of our neighbours, it can honestly be said that emigrant« will do as well here as they will iu any ?other part of Australia, if not better: " To those who, crowded out or ouly par- tially successful, in consequence of the competition arisiug from the ov...

The Hundred Best Books. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

The Hundred Best Books. Sir John Lubbock, Banker, Naturalist, and Member of Parliament for Loudon University, lately descended from the pinnacle of his more serious pursuits and gave an address to a working man's club on "the pleasures of reading," which subsequently appeared in the Contempo- rary Review iu the shape of an article. In the course of his remarks he mentioned how convenient it would be io have from a reliable source a list of one hundred of the best books that could be recommended. to the general reader, and he attempted to supply the want by giving 'such a selection himself. We fear the honourable baronet's literary pleasures are of a more serious or solid nature than those of any of his hearers. The difficnlty of finding one hundred authors whose work could bo set up as the summum bonum of liter- ary effort, has been proved indeed io be almost unsurmountable. We all know there are certain books, which to quote the formula of the booksellers, should have a place in ev...
