TEE VASSE RACES. ? «? ? [From Our Reporter.] VaSsD, Thursday. The races held at the Vasse oil Thursday last were a great success, and reflected great credit, on the Stewards and all connected with the getting np of the sports.

The recent fall in the price of sandal wood says the Geruldton-Muvchison Tele graph, is a serious matter for their district where quite an army of cutters and team sters are engaged in the trade. The pre sent depressed state of the market is not however, likely to continue, and by a little finesse the local traders may not suffer seriously from what is no -doubt a little dodge on the part of the sandal wood ring, inteiulcd to frighten those not included in its sacred ci'ivU'ouj of the tra.de.

About 11.30, when the ship had become quite unmagt able, owing to to the stoppage of the engines and loss of all canvas, laud loomed up through the darkness, and the ship struck on a reef 200 yds. from the shore of the island. She recoiled, struck again, and went down like a stone. All below when she struck were drowned. The captain was on the bridge, and shook hands saying good bye to the officer, and then went down to the passengers, and was uever seen after. During the early part of the gale the cap tain changed the course of the ship off the shore, having 30 fathoms on the lead line. The survivors speak highly of the way the ship was managed by the captain and officers. The survivors were washed ashore on the wreckage.

(To the Editor of The Bunbury Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 7 December 1892

(To tlie Bditor'of The 'Bunbury Herald.) Sir, — Very pi-operly and very ne cessarily the Municipal Institutions Act has been framed in a manner to preclude any person officiating1 at an election from the exercise of any dis cretion in the application of its pro visions. It is therefore surprising to find an election conducted on a sys tem, that utterly ignores its man datory provisions. The Bnnbury Municipal Election of tlie 21st. inst., if such it can be called, was probably the most important ever held here, as it was to place in council a number of gentlemen that constituted an absolute majority of that body. It is therefore to be regretted that the proceedings were absolutely void, and the election consequently invalid. Here it is proper to observe that with the entire body of ratepayers, I am convinced that a gentleman could not have been selected for returning officer who possessed in a higher de gree the confidence of the electors, or who would be more anxious to carry out th...

THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, DEC. 7, 1S92. It would- 'be difficult to overesti mate the importance to the colony and tlie influence to be exercised upon the district by the intelligence conveyed iu the report of the bor ino- operations at the Collie Coal Field published in our last issue. In view of the great number of in variably favorable reports publish ed from time to time relative to the Collie coal, it is not surprising to find both the Premier and Commis sioner of Railways when in the dis trict expressing their confidence in the result despite nine months dis couraging operations. It will be observed that the satisfactory re sults have been obtained along the big seam outcrop, along which a line lias .been purveyed for two miles in this locality and from which | the coal brought into Bunbury — by the Collie Commercial Coal.
