NOTES FROM NORTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

NOTES FROM NORTHAM. ?» On New Year's Day a tea meeting and ball took place to celebrate the anniver- sary of the "Northam Mechanic's Institute " which passed off most satis- factorily to all, with the exception ot the weather which was rather too warm for dancing to be comfortable bili., notwith- standing the heat, dancing was kept up with spirit until 4 a.m. thanks to the ladies who presided at the piano an instrument which was handed over to the chairman at the tea meeting, which had been purchased by a committee-of ladies who had prepared a series of concerts and tea meetings, and balls, to pay for the same for the use of the Mechanics9 Hall. A debt of gratitude is due to those ladies by the members of the Institute and the public for the hard task they undertook for the benefit of the in- stitution. The ladieshadactually perform- ed that which the gentlemen of the dis- trict had been trying to do for the past 12 years. NEW YEA.ES DAT 1886. The Chairman and Members of the Northam...

THE SCAB IN SHEEP ACT. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

THE SCAB IN SHEEP ACT. To the Editor. SIE,-During the past 20 years the Scab Act has been almost continually under consideration, and has been repeat- edly repealed, altered or amended, and the present result is an Act, which is rightly described as full of glaring inconsistencies and absurdities, and bears internal evi- dence of gross and culpable negligence in drafting and preparation. I have observ- ed that when any gross absurdity has once been enacted, all subsequent repro- ductions or amendments of the Act re- ligiously retain it, while any really bene- ficial regulations stand a good chance of being eliminated. The section dealing with quarantine is a case in point. lu the present Act the absurdity of having an elaborate gradation of quarantine for every month in the year is retained, whilst the useful provision enabling an Inspector to cancel a license, is all ont revoked, and, if I am to believe Mr. Harper, the framers of the Act rely on tho possibility of future vindictive...

COLONIAL FRUIT GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

COLONIAL FRUIT GROWING. A LATE number ot the Ai'gus says : " Mr. TUos. Hardey gave evidence yes- terday before the li oyal Commission on vegetable products. He mentioned to the Commission a number of products he had protita bly grown, such as wine, raisins, currants, oranges, olives, &c., and expressed an opinion that small farmers may largely iner«ase their income by growing grapes for sale to wine makers.. He could get for his raisins about the same price as that given for the imported raisins, and for his currants a halfpenny a pound more. Thc Canned Fruit Com- pany, which bod failed in South Austra- lia, had done so, in hts opinion, solely owing to bad management. He sew no- thing to prevent raisins and currants being produced profitably in the northern parc of Victoria, lu reply to questions by Mr. Knight as to climatic conditions, Mr. Hardy said he _ hardly thought an average rainfallof 15in. was sutlîcient for winegrowing. As to the danger of over production the witne...

The Umbrella. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

The Umbrella. Probably none of the many people who daring the past fortnight have sought re- fuge nuder their umbrellas have ever wearied themselves with reflections as to the origin of that most esteemed and uni- versal protector. Even when on the po- litical horizon, the 6.O.M. and the " Bir- mingham Screw" are sëen under one and the same moveable roof, we doubt whether many are moved to wonder how it is that that which covers such a multitude of sins was originally evolved. Who would sup- pose that the prosaic, common, or garden, umbrella had a poetic origin ? Nay, is in itself a remnant of solar worship. In these degenerate democratic days tho umbrella has sunk so low as to be looked upon merely as a machine by which the rain is to be kept from our civilisation enfeebled persons. But once upon a time it was different. I<ong ago a downfall of rain was the signal for the universal closure of all umbrellas. This was net done because the various-owners revelled | in a duc...

Holland or Hollands? [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

HoIIaud oí* Hollands ? A somewhat peculiar discovery is just reported to have been made by a denizen of Lincoln, Nebrasha, U.S. but sus- picions of the informant's credibility are apt to be aroused by his confession that the discovery is of Buch an astounding nature that he hesitates to give the cir- cumstances to the public, on account if being barred at the present from giving names. The discoverer thereof is called " Mr. Ii elland. " (The name is somewhat suspiciously suggestive of J. D. K. and Z.) Mr. Holland, it appears is a man of small stature, a mild ego " (whether the other ege is mild also, does not appear), a thoughtful countenance, and a devout christian, possessing a peculiar belief that the soul of a mau is a counterpart of the body itself ; and in this theory he sought 'he key of life and death." This "vapoury form" Mr. J. D. K. and Z. believed might be rendered visible to " the dull sight of human eyes " by " a simple microscopic device, by which means one could see ...

THE GASCOYNE MISSION. To THE EDITOR WESTERN MAIL. Gascoyne Hirer, Dec, 28th 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

THE GASCOYNE MISSION. To THE EDITOR WESTERN MAIL. Gascoyne Hirer, Dec, 28th 1885. DEABSIB,-As Mr. Gribble has thought fit to attack a respectable body of tuen on the Gascoyne at his recent lecture in the city, and as no doubt he will get many to believe him if his words, are left unan* swered, I trust you will allow me a little space to answer some of his insinuations, As to the opening remarks ef Bishop Parry, I consider, Sir, that they cast a direct slur on the community of the dis- trict, a community I have no hesitation in saying that is as respectable a body of men as you would find in any part of the colony. They are remarks which cast a grave reflection on the manner in which they were brought up from childhood, on the principles they were taught, and on the society that had received (hem hither, to, for any one would imagine by ¿hose re. marks that we are a lawless,degraded race of beings. They are remarks, Sir, un- worthy of the man that uttered them. Mr. Gribble in the cou...

OUR HIGHER CIVILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

OUR HIGHER CIVILISATION. » -. WE are fond ot moralizing says aa American correspondent on our splen- did advantages and our superior civiliza tion. We deprecate a Spanish bullfight, and vre execrate and condemn the Gladia- torial slaughters of tho Homans, We wonder that any race of men and women could ever have existed with nerves of steel and hearts of stone, and who could sit by and see a fellow creature slaughter- ed without a quiver. Yet only a week ago there was a splendid company at Jerome Park-beauty, fashion sud wealth were there. On the turf amid the fash- ionable equipages might be seen the gay turnouts of five or six well-known preach- ers, who never take dust on the boulevard from anything under 2*25. The day was damp and cloudy, and the course heavy and wet ; these however, were only mere incidents, and were weighed with regard to the betting. The jockeys are all mount- ed, and a gallant looking crew they were on their animals, lank as greyhounds with hides like burnish...

OUR WADDINGTON SCHEME. THE Australian Times says :-" Among the names of the passengers booked per the P. and 0. steamer Valetta, winch sail- ed on the 17th inst, for Sydney, was Mr. John Ewart (of the well-known firm of Messrs. J. Morrison and Go., 4, Fenchurch Street, Australian merchants), who is visiting that port on business. Mr. Ewart s absence is likely, we understand, to extend ovor a period of from six to eight months. We may mention that this gentleman is Chairman of the Board of the Western Australian Land and Midland Railway Syndicate, Limited, recently formed for the purpose of taking over Mr« John Woddiiigton's railway concession in that colony. Mr. Ewart purposes paying a visit to Western Australia, and the pro- posed Midland Railway district before he returns to this country.1'

MR. GRIBBLE AND THE GASCOYNE SETTLERS. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

MB. GRIBBLE AND THE GAS COYftJS SETTLERS. IFROM THE WEST ATIBTRAXIA.N1 WE published yesterday a report of a meeting held lately at Carnarvon to discuss Mr. GEIBBLE's recent lecture upon his expériences at the Gascoyne. There hecuba to i ia ve beeu a large at- tendance of settlers, and Mr GRIBBLE who was present, can scarcely be con- gratulated upon having met with a very cordial rece ption. This, we fear, was to a certain extent as much Mr. GEIBBLE'B í¿tult as bis misfortune. Although there are, no doubt, differ- ences of opinion as to tbe value of mission work generally, the balance of public sentiment lies decidedly on the side of missions. And their civil- ising influences cannot be gainsaid, even by those who question the extent of the success they generally contrive to achieve in other directions. When therefore the authorities of the An- glican Church ia tüis colony decided upon sending a missioner to work amongst the natives in our Northern districts, we felt bouud to support...

OUR CARNARVON LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

OUR CARNARVON LETTER. j -« The chief topic of interest here for some time past has been relative to Mr. Gribble and his lecture delivered in Perth concern- ing the district. The settlers consider the lecture to be a libel upon them, and intend to see the matter through to the «nd. It is the intention of the settlers-a goodly muster ef whom, are now in Carnarvon-to have a public meeting called and to inform Mr. Gribble of such meeting and then to discuss the matters appertaining to Hr. Gribble and his lecture. I have heard many say that they do not object in the least to a mission but that they do object to Ur. Gribble and that they will not support him in any way. It is considered that he has not gone to work with sufficient tact. A stir has arisen amongst the pearlers at Sharks Bay, concerning the pearling banks and the colored population. The pearlers are desirous of leasing the hanks from the Gov- ernment and to exclude the oolored popula- tion from working on .the banks on their...

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. FRIDAY, January 8th, 1886.

L indowners are a little shy of trying the market at present, but we near of instruc tious being given for one or two consider- able properties to be placed forthwith on the market.

The Boee Meeting. ., The Honorary Secretary and Committee of the Western Australian Turf Club may well congratulate themselves and the ' public ou the results of the New. Tear's ! Meeting. It was, by agreement, the most ! successful racing event that has yet ! signalised the sporting annals of the ¡ colony. The attendance was a remarkable ! contrast to the sparse scattering that has so often' been the shame of former gather- ings. The racing was never better, and the improved means of getting to the course, if not quite what it is to be hoped , they may yet be made, reduced the discomforts hitherto endured by those who cannot secure the convenience I of a vehicle, to a very small point, lt IB true that the heat on the first day was a *. lively specimen of what Old Sol ceuld do when he has made up his mind to give a taste of his strength, but this was almost the oniy serious drawback of the meeting, aggravated as it unquestionably was by the extreme difficulty or to speak more ' trul...

The Western Mail SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

%\t »sten Pail SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1886. THE inhabitants of Western Australia at large, aud more especially of Perth and Fremantle, must experience a high degree of satisfaction at the recent rapid progress of manly amusements in their midst. Within the last few years almost every branch of ali that is expressed by the well beloved British title 'sport,' has undergone wonderful invigoration. There are now half a dozen cricket clubs in Perth alone, ail weil support, ed and each abie to put a fair eleven into the field. Football in this colony took a new lease ot life last year with the formation of an Association, the introduction of a uniform system, and the adoption of tbe Australian game. But the leap forward is above all noticeable when we come to consider the present condition of what English- men, proudly designate par excelleàce, their " national sport," and the state that it was in but a few short years ago. All men whatever views they may hold on the preponderance of good o...
