ViGiLANs ET AUDAX. P^BTHrrUESDÄY^JAN. 13, 1880. ! YORK ROAD POISON-A SUGGES TION AND AN OFFER. IN our issue of December 2nd, we published a communication from Mr. CHARLES HAM- ERSLEY, of the Williams River, describing a method for the destruction of the poison plant by the application of salt to its roots, adopted by himself and put in practice with entire success. Having great confidence in the efficacy of the plan Mr. HAMERSLEY re-! commends, we would strongly urge that a trial should be made on the land bordering .the high roads between Guildford and the Eastern districts. We would ' suggest that ta small sum be raised by subscription for this purpose, and that the Roads Boards of Newcastle and York be requested to assist in carrying out the experiment. There can, we should imagine, be little doubt that, if . the settlers exhibit a serious determination to make the attempt, the Government would -feel itself justified in subsidizing so useful an undertaking to the 'extent at any r...

TÊÈ VALUE OF GEOLOG Y IN TEE i : ¡DEVELOPMENT OF NEW . ., , ,, . COUNTRY. BY 'S. A. One' of the grave disadvantages under which we labour is the vast extent of our territory ; another is the paucity of its in- habitants. Some thirty thousand men, women, and children,- are stationed' here, and spread over a geographical area whose coast line is over 2,500 miles, with climates varying from the most intense heat of the torrid zone to the temperature of a South of England spring. They are dotted in twos, threes, and tem*-hardly-.ever in scores-on remote sheep and cattle'stations, and on the'pearling grounds. A few hundreds are in the country townsites ; and our principal seaport and the seat of Government can hardly muster 5000 souls.-' With every agreeable diversity of climate, we have every diversity of soil, and we differ only from the Eastern Colonies of our continent in not having-so far at least as is a matter of absolute certainty-large con- tiguous areas of land that shall susta...

Supreme Court—Criminal Side. [Before His Honor the Acting Chief Justice (Hon. G. W. Leake) and a Common Jury.] THUBSDAY, JANUARY 8. CHARGE OF SHEEP STEALING (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 January 1880

Supreme Court-Criminal Side. [Before His Honor the Acting Chief Justice (Hon. G. W. Leake) and a Common Jury.) THUBSDAY, JANUARY 8. CHARGE OF SHEEP STEALING (Continued.) Mr. Howell, in opening the case for the de- fence, said the crime with which the prisoners Warren were charged was alleged to have been committed at Champion Bay, where they might have been tried at the court of quarter sessions; but the magistrates at Geraldton, for very cogent reasons no doubt, had remitted the case to the Supreme Court of the colony, The magistrates, when they conceived that the ad- ministration of justice was likely in any way to be poisoned, were empowered to send such a case as this for trial at the superior court ; and in exercising this descretionary power on the pre- sent occasion, he thought the Geraldton bench   had shown a wise discrimination, bearing in mind the strong feeling which the case had evoked in the district, and that the prosecutors were no less distinguished per...

His Honor said it was now tor the jury to say whether the prisoners or either of thein stole the sheep-not whether they actu- ally drove them out of Mr. Major's paddock, but, having found them outside the fence, ear- marked in such a way that the owner might easily discover them, did they mutilate that mark, and drive the sheep into their own ' Alick; and exercise ownership over them? ?'If so,-that would amount to stealing them. Or, if any one else stole them and han. led them - intothe prisoners' possession, they (the pri ' soners) knowing that they were stolen, the jury ? would find them guilty on the second count. -'The'jury would bear in mind that they «ere -the paramount judges of the facts: with them, .- and' not with him rested the verdict.

Telegraphic News. [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] LONDON, JANUARY 10. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 January 1880

(AgrapMc §ta. [Associated Press.] London, January 10. In an article upon the present aspect 'of poli- tical affairs in Victoria, the Spectator once more condemns the plébiscite as being inconsistent with Parliamentary Government on the British model. It approves of a Nominee Council, but without an increase in the number of members. Attention is being attracted to the extensive massing of Russian forces on the German fron- tier. Troops to the number of 35,000 are being collected in Poland, but for what reason has not been explained. It is thought, however, that this movement has reference to the policy an- nounced some time ago having in view the com- plete isolation of Russia, and in connection with that step the giving to Great Britain complete control of the affairs of Asiatic Turkey, the im- proving of the seaboard of Germany, and the granting to Austria of special authority over what remains of European Turkey. Mr. Sergeant Parry, the eminent counsel, died snddenly yesterday. H...

AN EXTRAORDINARY QUACK. BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 January 1880

AN EXTRAORDINARY QUACK. British Medical Journal. A singular account of the doings of a female charlatan, styling herself Madame Enault, who has been making a great stir in Birkenhead, has been forwarded to us. It is alleged that Madame Enault, who has been in Rome, where her father is a physician, has studied medicine in, ' Paris, Italy, and Belginm, and possesses the medical diplomas of these countries. She has, it is announced, practised in Rome for eighteen years ; and, adopting the somewhat remarkable rôZeof a female Dulcamara, has travelled through- out France, Austro-Hungary. and the southern parts of America, reaping, weare told, both praise and profit by her labours. It may, however, be noted that, in her foreign travels the lady was ai o impanied by her husband and by a " Dr. Paul Duflot ;" the latter is now with her in England, and, the same account informs us, has on several occasions proved himself an excellent substitute for Madame Enault, when she was indisposed.

NOTES FROM YORK. BY PETER SIMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 January 1880

NOTES FROM YORK. By Peter Simple. During the past week the weather has been extremely hot and sultry. The change so suddenly from the delightfully cool days and nights which we had been experiencing np till Christmas has come upon us with unusual force, and threatens to herald in a good deal of sickness. The Roads Board held its annual meeting on the 24th ulto., and as no ona has yet given a report of the proceedings I will try to give you a brief epitome of what took place. The main object of the meeting was of course to elect three members in the place of those re- tiring in accordance with the requirements of the Act, but the question of driving horses, double, cropped up and led to a good deal of discussion. The retiring members were Messrs. Hamersley, Ed- wards, and J. W. Parker. Messrs. Par- ker and Hamersley expressed themselves op- posed to the by-law enforcing double driving ; the latter was, however, in favor of giving it a fair trial before condemning it altogether. Mr. E...

County Letters. GREENOUGH, Jan. 6. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 January 1880

County Ifete. GREENOUGH, Jan. 6. History was very nearly repeating itself the other day in the shape of a general conflagration of the Greenough. On the morning of Decem- ber 30, as Mr. Wilton and his men were about to commence reaping in a field of wheat, a fire suddenly sprang up a fow yards from them. Fortunately it was in the S. W. corner of the field that the blaze arose, while a light north- easterly breeze was blowing, which enabled the farmer and his men, assisted by their neigh- bours, to confine its action to a comparatively small space. The sea breeze set in almost im- mediately after they got the fire under. Had it blown up a little earlier, the destruction of at least four or five miles of wheat fields would certainly have been involved, as also probably of more than one homestead, for even where the grain has been stripped the straw and parched up weeds would carry the flames along at a tremendous pace. Mr. Wilton who was an the spot at once in- vestigated the cause of...

WHAT MAY BE DONE WITH OUR LAND To the "Editor of the West Austraiian: Sir.-I cannot allow your leading article of the ninth of January to pass unnoticed,,because although it disproves none of my statements, it might mislead the unthinking, or give a wrong impression to those who have not read my let- ters. You say : "There is however, no need for us " to discuss the possible result of fencing, grass " growing, etc., for it is certainly most trans ¡ " parently absurd to assert that because a piece " of land might be worth say .¿£50 per annum " after the tenant had expended a certain num *' ber of thousands upon it, fifty pounds should " therefore be the rent levied by the Crown for " the same land in its natural state." Of course it is absurd, and the absurdity exists- in your imagining anything so ridiculous. No man in his senses could ever propose such nonsense. If it is intended to turn into ridicule anything I said, it is very wúle of the mark. What Ido say is, ...
