Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 January 1880

êauâomlfjto. LOCAL AND: GENERAL. A case of considerable importance to muni«' cipalities was recently disposed of before the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council at home. This suit arose out of a obum for damages preferred by , a Mr. McPherson agamat the Town Council of Bathurst (New South Wales). Some time ago this gentle man was riding dojra. one of the-atreeta-of the town, and on turning the corner hhfhorse fell into a drain -syhich had been left open. The rider was thrown to the ground with great violence, and his left leg was brokem One'of the counts upon which he based bia claim for compensation waa that the mnnici-, pality had allowed the street aud drain to, fall into disrepair. This was set asideby tha Judge at once, on the ground that no action can he againet a municipality for not repair- ing streets. Ano), indeed, the consequence« of a body of aldermen being liable to be sued for not doing this, that, or the other, may readily be imagined. 'The other count charg- ed th...

Telegraphic News. [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] MELBOURNE, Jan. 2. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 January 1880

ttftygra$H( |to. [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] MELBOURNE, Jan. 2. Mr. Wilson's First King won the Champion Stakes. A cricket match is proceeding between a new Australian^EIeven and a Victorian Fifteen. A man named Wingfield has been murdered at Port Darwin by natives. LONDON, Deer. 90. In reference to the disaster of the Tay Bridge, the North British Bail way officials, on the Dandee side, say that the train was advancing from the Fifeshire shore, and they saw a sudden flash of light extending from the bridge to the water below. Wondering at the non-arrival of the train the officials walked along the bridge, and I found that a sudden gap had been made in the I centre, where the tram, consisting of an engine. a van, and six carriages, had been engulfed in the water. Thirteen latticed girders, covering upwards of half a mile, had fallen. It is believed that the terrific force of the. gale meeting the resistance caused by the passing train, caused the disaster. None were saved. It is now un- der...

Correspondence. THE 'ROB ROY.' TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 January 1880

eace. THE «ROB ROY.« To THE EnrroR or THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-The agent of the Hob Boy in his let» ter published in your issue of the 2nd inst., .eems to treat what he is pleased to call the ' imaginary' grievances of a " Brother Suffer- er" in a very cavalier style, and he Bay» it wonld have been more gentlemanly if "Broth- er Sufferer" had signed his name. This lat- ter idea is a novel one, and must be one of the latest importations by the Rob Hoy from the 'otherside]' What, however, I wish particularly to draw attention to is the statement made by Mr. Lilly respecting the weather at the Southern ports, in which the Sarah Bunyeat was wrecked, and the barque Bengal and the lone were nearly being wrecked ; and from these circumstances the inference is intended to be drawn that this severe weather, pro- ducing the before named casualties, was the reason why the steamer was unable to receive or discharge cargo in those Southern ports. Now, the fact is, that the gale which wrecked on...

MR. BROCKMAN'S VIEWS ON THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 January 1880

MR. BROCKMAN'S VIEWS ON THE LAND QUESTION. To THE EDITOR OF THB WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-In the West Australian- of the 19th instant, Mr. Brockman has favoured the public with a few of his ideas upon the much vexed land question. I have no doubt you will, with equal fairness, allow me space to make some remarks upon the suggestions contained ia Mr. Brockman's letter. He says : " I consider any land worth holding at all to be worth the amount now charged." Here, I beg to differ from him. Moat of the land now held under leases and licenses for pastoral purposes in the Eastern Districts can 1>9 classified as follows : twenty five per cent, poison, and about the same in barren waste (although perhaps free from poison), making nfty per cent, of useless land and reducing the quantity of grazing purposes to one half of what we actually pay for. By the latest alteration in the Land Regu- lations the least you can now hold is 3000 acres of the quality above described, reduc- ing the run Mr. ...

THE tá %míxúkt ViGiLANs ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, JAN. 6,1880. ' FACTS are stubborn things,' but how often are they as stubbornly set aside ? How im- possible it is to induce men to moderate their prejudices, to alter their foregone con- clusions by proving, that facts are opposed to the position they wish to maintain. < Mr. MCKENZIE GRANT remarks in his late political manifesto, ' Englishmen like to govern themselves.* So they do, in theory, -although when it comes to the practice of it, and they find that governing themselves too often means being governed by their neighbours, and not always by those of their neighbours whom they consider the most intelligent and the most fitted for the work, they are apt to be somewhat disenchanted. Still, before they have had any practical experience of its meaning, we may say that Mr. MCKENZIE GRANT is correct-English- men do like to govern themselves. And we as Engli shmen, or the descendants of Eng-, lishmen, are of the same opinio...

Occational Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 January 1880

#¿aáonaí gotes. LOCAL ANJO GENERAL. The- mails from the Eastern colonies per Tanjore, arrived at the General Post Office on Sunday afternoon. From Melbourne we learn that the final debate on the Reform Bill was animated, and the divisions were close. The sixth clause of the bill, making money payable on the votes of the Assembly alone, was carried by 36 votes to 35. At the ' instance of a Government supporter, the term of office of the proposed nominee Council was reduced from ten years to five. The plébis- cite clause was affirmed by 38 votes to 37. The debate on the third reading took place on December 4. The Assembly had a long and excited sitting, meeting at 2 p.m., and adjourning at half past 4 a.m. Up to the last the result was doubtful, and consequently the tension was great. The discussion took place not on the main motion, but on an amendment moved by Mr. Munro to substi- tute on elective chamber (based upon » £10 ratepaying franchise) for a nominee Upper House, and the vot...

A LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 January 1880

A LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND. The following interesting letter from the Wellington correspondent of the Adelaide Observer may, we think, be read with ad- vantage by the advocates of Responsible Go- vernment,-the so-called * party of progress' -in Western Australia. It teaches a lesson which our ' reformers' would do well to lay to heart : "I may feel sorry that I should have to relate what follows, but if I am in the place where I am demanded of conscieuce to speak the truth, why, the truth I must speak-impugn it \t hoso list. You may possibly have read this quota- tion at some period of your existence, and conse- quently it will not be looked upon as anything particularly original. Well, then, the truth is that our present condition is one very deplorable to contemplate ; and in our case very many, if indeed not all, our troubles have come to pass through a Government so reckless that I hardly know how it should be characterized. I had, until lately, been of opinion that so long as me...

SHEEP FARMERS AND THE LAND REGULATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 January 1880

SHEEP FARMERS AND THE LAND REGULATIONS. I.TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-I have frequently pointed out the necessity for naming particular districts when writing or speaking upon the land regulations, or the customs of the settlers. It is a common notion that the sheep-farmers generally have a very easy life, and that all could make a fortune if they were (to use conventional terms) sober, industrious, and persevering. There are few except those engaged upon it who know how really poor is a large propor- tion of the country in the eastern and south- ern districts now leased from the Crown, at the rental of one pound per annum per thous- and acres ; and although this is apparently a nominal rent, I do not believe that, consid- ering the comparative value of the land, so high a rent for sheep runs is paid in any other Australian colony. To keep a thousand sheep, we are bound to hire, good and bad, from twenty to thirty thousand acres, and this is not the greatest drawback....

fäh.Woklxu. MISS HOTEL. (From the French.) [Continued.'] It was strange how Raymond's blood Ixnled whenever he thought of that disre Jutable little old 'Marquis becoming Meg's usband. He was impatient to tackle Lady Rovel, and presented himself at the door as «jarly on the following morning as he could venture to do. _ ~ -m ~ " "The" footman pronounced his name so in- distinctly, that Lady Rovel did not catch ¿t.

Farm and Station. 'AN ILLIMITABLE WASTE OF FERTILE LANDS.' [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 January 1880

'$m\iaib Station. AN ILLIMITABLE WASTE OF FERTILE LANDS/ - : Two or three years ago, I remember reading a story which astonished and amused me not a little, although ita truth appeared extremely doubtful, The story was of an Ontario farmer, who having heard great things of the land to the West of Manitoba, determined to person- ally test its value for wheat-growing purposes. Accordingly he set off in the early spring sea- son, taking his six fine-grown, Canadian-born sons with nim, an abundance of seed, ploughs, harrows, thrashing and winnowing machines and all the implements required for farming on a rather large scale. The land he had taken up was beyond Red River, on the banks, if I recollect right, of the Assineboine, to the westward of the town of Winnipeg and some distance from any settle- ment. At that time the Red, River was rather inaccessible, and it was a weary journey from Lake. Superior, but when our travellers reached their destination they considered themselves most a...

THE SCAB ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 January 1880

THE SCAB ACT. To THE EDITOE OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIE.-During the late sitting of the Legis- lative Council a great deal of time was oc- cupied by that body in passing a new Scab in Sheep Ordinance which it was supposed would be of very gieat benefit to the colony, and if properly carried Jut I believe it would be the means of totally eradicating the dis- ease, thereby saving the colonists some thousands annually. But strange to say thisAct, for some unaccountable reason, is not yet in force, thereby nullifying one of its most important clauses, viz. : that during the summer season only one month should be al- lowed an owner to clean his sheep. As this matter is one of the greatest importance to sheep farmers, I am sure it has only to be brought before the notice of His Excel- lency, the Governor to be rectified. Yours faithfully, EDWARD T. HOOLEY. January 8th.
