The Nobelist. DOCTOR MERUEL'S STORY: [From the Freeth of Victor Cherbuliez,] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

The Novelist   DOCTOR MERUEL'S STORY: [From the French of Victor Cherbuliez,] A few years ago, said Doctor Meruel, two Americans made their appearance, or rather their re-appearance at my house, - two Yankees, two free citizens of the freest of republics. They did not know one another but I was well acquainted with them both. In former days they had been under my profes- sional care, - the one for acute peritonitis, the other for a catarrhic affection of the throat. They had not forgotten me, and, business hav- ing brought them back to Europe, no sooner had they set foot in Paris than they hastened to see me, delighted to tell me, and to prove in person, that they were still alive and well. I am very fond of my patients-of those whom I have cured at least. It seems to me that they have put their own shoulders to the wheel, that they have made a point of backing me up in my endeavours, and have done their best to help me bring their cure to a success- ful issue. In short...

IMPORTED STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

IMPORTED STOCK. We are glad to hear that our enterprising fellow-colonists Messrs. A. Muir and Sons of Albany, have been launching out in a direction much required in the Plantagenet District, by importing stock-a good entire cart horse and a fine bull for stud purposes. We have already noticed the fact, but we are able now to give further particulars. The horse is a bright bay, about seventeen hands high; he has been named * Pride of the Plains' and was bred by Mr. Wilson, of " Two Wells" station, South Australia. Pride of the Plains is by Black- lock out of Gipsy (imported) ; Blacklock is I y old Blacklock (imported), out of Jessie ; Jessie by Agravation (imported) out of a Briton mare. This horse will, we hope, prove a great acqui- sition to horse breeders in the district. The bull «.Pride of the Hill" is by Yatala   (imported), out of a BB cow, and is bred by E. M. Bagot. These BB cows are descended from pure imported stock. " Pride of the Hill" is a fine made bull,...

SIR, Who on earth is ' Agriculturist, that he should set himself up, as a mouth piece of ' the squatters ' in that miserable Carey v. Forrest affair ? He probably comes from   down South, and has fortunately over-reached   himself, for when he says that Forrest took up these runs at the north " to prevent the public getting it at the Government sale, " everybody who knows anything about our land regulations, can only laugh at his   credulity and ignorance. If he did not make this statement through ignorance it must have been through malice ; and if people wish to lie for malicious purposes, they should, for thei...

Chit=Chat. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

Chit = Chat It is rumoured that arrangements are pend-   ing between the respective owners of Flemington and Bas Blanc for a match between the two horses, for £500; distance three miles.     **   At the last sitting of the Supreme Court in its civil jurisdiction, nearly a whole day was occu- pied in the hearing of an action between two neighbors - a disciple of Aesculapius and a son of Crispin -arising out of some trifling damage done to the former's kitchen wall. The extent of the damage was valued by practical men at   about £1. Four lawyers were engaged in the   case, and about a score of witnesses were exam-   ined. In the course of the trial the Chief Jus- tice, and the counsel, and some of the witnesses proceeded, in a body, to inspect the defendant's kitchen - a distance of about half a mile-and after hearing several more witnesses (the case, as already said, lasting nearly a whole day)...

DUTY ON FLOUR AND THE 'POOR MAN'S LOAF.' TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 November 1879

DUTY ON FLOUR AND THE 'POOR MAN'S LOAF.* To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,- I observed in one of your contemporaries a statement to the effect that in   consequence of a tax being placed on flour, sellers had raised the price of flour 5s. per bag. Now, Mr. Editor, can you tell me the reason why sellers have made such a jump ? Supposing flour to b £12 per ton at Adelaide, that would mean an import duty of   24s. per ton. Now, how is it that store- keepers have raised the.price of flour 5s. a "bag, which means 50s. a ton,?or 36s. a ton in favor of the seller ? I cannot conceive how it is that there is such an outcry about the ' poor man's loaf.' Lot us see what difference the import duty will make. It is wrell known that bakers get from 120 to 130 loaves from a bag of flour. Before the import duty was placed on bread stuffs, bread was selling in Perth at from 3d. to 4d. per loaf of 21bs. At a moderate computation, we will take 120 loaves to the bag o...

THE PERSONNEL OF THE REFORM LEAGUE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 November 1879

THE PERSONNEL OF THE REFORM LEAGUE. To the Editor of the West "Australian. Sir.?I am glad to observe that notwith- standing your great aversion to the Reform League, you consider that body of sufficient importance as to demand more than a mere passing notice. The frequent allusions to the League in your paper, and the numerous com- plimentary epithets so freely applied to the League are I can assure you quite inspiriting and duly appreciated. Permit me, however, to inform you and your anxious enquirers that "that lot," "the so called'reformer," " that obscure body yclept the Reform League," " that knot of obscure busy- bodies" and the " Vehm Gencht"?(the effus- ions of one and the same'.pen, doubtless), con- sist of esquires, gentlemen, merchants, publi- cans, storekeepers, and mechanics, ? not mere ' adventurers' but possessed of consider- able landed property. If, however, the League consisted of men of mere hrmible position in life, I need hardly remind you that reforms ': have n...

MUNICIPAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 November 1879

MUNICIPAL ELECTION. On Monday last a poll of the ratepayers of the city of Perth was taken at the Town Hall, which resulted in the return of Mr. Geobge Shenton, as Chairman of the City Council, by a majority of forty-two votes over his opponent Mr. E. A. Stone. On no previ- ous occasion do we remember having seen a municipal election so closely contested, the numbers when first declared at three o'clock being,?Mr. Shenton, 107, and Mr. Stone, 104. An hour afterwards the state of the poll was still more equal, the humber of votes re- corded for each candidate, being, in fact, alike ?Mr. Shenton, 1G7, and Mr. Stone 167. From that hour until the closing of the poll and the final declaration, the friends of the former candidate seem- to have mustered in stronger force than Mr. Stone's supporters, and the result was that.'while the latter secured 190 votes, the successful candidate polled 232. It is but fair, however, to Mr. Stone to say that the actual number of electors who voted for h...

THE Witd SUstraflkir. VigiiiAns et Audax. PERTH, FRIDAY, NOV. 21,1879. MINISTERIAL RESPONSIBILITY. Au interesting letter recently appeared in a contemporary,?a letter signed " A." " A " comments in an amusing way upon certain statements made by the Reform League organ with regard to the political creed of Mr. Pearse and Mr. Higham. "Mr. Pearse and Mr. Higham " says the organ " are both firm supporters of ministerial re- sponsibility;" and " A " enquires what in re- ality Mr. Pearse and Mr. Higham know of ministerial responsibility, and whether they even pretend to have an idea of any sort upon the subject ? To this question we are not of course in a position to give a satisfactory reply. But of the "ideas upon the subject" entertained by very many, who—like Mr. Peaese and Mr. Higham—are 'firm supporters of ministerial   responsibility,' we are fully cognizant. They have been frequently expressed. The cru- dest idea, but the main idea and the most universal is—that under...
