THE attention of the public is called to an advertisement appearing in our business columns, in which Mr. Robb, the contractor for the Eastern Railway, otí'ers a reward of £20 for the conviction of the person or persons who, apparently with malice aforethought, placed a large dog spike on a section of the line between Fremantle and Guildford. It would be as well to remind the parties concerned in this business, that upon conviction of the offence' they are liable to a sentence of seven years' penal servitude. We are assured by -Mr. 'Barnfield, the" local representative of the contractor, that in the event ot the discovery of the present, offender ,or offenders', or of any party who may hereafter indulge their evil propensities in ' like manner/ it is his, intention to prosecute the offenders with the utmost' rigour of the law. - And ¡all right-minded /persons will commend the proposed step.

COMMITTEE : B. Saunders, J. M. Ferguson, B. Wynne, W. Helms, and H. Manning. The annual regatta held under the auspices of our local yacht club took place on Tuesday lost, the occasion being also observed as the anniversary of the Prince of Wales's birthday. The encourage- ment given last year stimulated the regatta com- mittee to renewed exertions, and their efforts did not prove in vain. A considerable sum of money was collected and offered in prizes in the shape of silver trophies and of current coin of the realm, and the results achieved were highly satisfactory. Last year the various events were considered to have been very well contested, but the competi- tion on Tuesday last was keener and more spirited as regards several of the races, and was, we think, a sufficient reward to all who ...

ffÖBHTÄY LETTEIS. (From our own correspondents.) BUNBURY, Nov. Gth. There is a slight but perceptible improvement in trade, and the bustle'of business has been steadily increasing since my last, conséquent upon a succession of unusually large orders from the Eastern colonies for jarrah timber. The first instalment of an extensive contract, com- prising several ship-loads of timber for the con- struction of a jetty at South Australia having been just taken by the firm of Mr. M. C. Davis of the Collie saw mills. The new Bunbury company is. also busy .with its maiden contract. There is, however, a great scarcity of 'hands,' and an influx of men accustomed to this branch of business is greatly wanted. The Silver Stream', after a somewhat protracted'pas-' sage, has arrived with the mill gear for the new' company. The very encouraging proposals sub- mitted to the directorate of the Bunbury Jarrah Timber Co., by an English company of large capitalists through Colonel Henderson, and of whic...

Tan WEST ABSTlALÏàïî. VIOILAÎÎS ET AUDAX PEBTH, FBIDAT, NOV. 12,1880. THE near approach of the municipal elec- tions makes it interesting to consider how I far our local self-governing institutions are attaining the object for which they were introduced. When Sir FREDERICK | WELD arrived in the colony, he found it, politically, in a very primitive condition, with centralization rampant, and the Go- vernment exercising a far larger number of paternal functions than it even does at £ resent. Apathy in regard to public affairs, eyond those of merely local interest, was general, and nearly every want, the Go- vernment was expected to supply. Fresh from the stirring life of New Zealand, Go- vernor WELD ?oon determined to rouse, if possible, a different spirit from that which j Government ' pâp-feeding ' had so long encouraged, to\mfuse that interest in pub- lic affairs, anc to promote that familiarity with public business, which could alone] lead to a hevlthy development of civic spirit ...

A REMARKABLE CALCULATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 November 1880

À REMARKABLE CALCULATION. To the Editor of the West Austrahax. Sir,-I notice in to-day's Inquirer a rather remarkable calculation, by the editor of that paper. It appears that a question arose con- cerning two men having 8 bottles of wine, one 5 and the other 3, when a third man joins them and takes a share of tho wine, for which he pays 8s. (his just share) ; and a correspondent wants to know how it is to be divided between the other two ? The editor is surprised at the want of knowledge displayed by his correspon- dent, and states that 5s. and 33. is the way that it should be divided. Well, I must confess that it is quite different to the way that I should allow it to be divided. If I payed for the 5 bottles,-that is, if 83. was one man's just share, 1 should consider 24s. was the value of the 8 bottles, and, if I bought 5 of them I should think the value of my part would be 15s. and the value of the other man's would be 9s. (he only supplying 3 bottles) ; so that he would only pa...

Sir,-I notice in the issue of the Inquirer of Wednesday last that tho editor of that paper has attempted the solution of a partnership question ; but he has (and I must ask him to excuse my saying so) most egregiously failed in his effort to prove what would lead his readers to believe-that he is wiser than his Champion Bay friends. It is not often that an editor affords bucIi an opportunity as the present to prove that he is not a universal genius-that he does not know everything. The question pro- pounded by the Inquirer's Geraldton corres- pondent is briefly as follows: "A" has five bottles of wine, " B " has three bottles of wine ; and " C," a. third person, who has no wine to contribute, joins "A" and "B." The three persons drink the wine, and " C " leaves eight shillings, his third share of the cost of the wine to be divided between " A " and " B." Wanted to know what are the respective shares of the said "A" and"B"? The ...
