(To the Editor of The Bunbury Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 14 December 1892
(To the Editor of The Bunhtry Herald.) Sir, — Kindly allow me a small space in your valuable paper to call the attention of the committee of the Mechanics' Institute to the reprehen sible practice that obtains there. On several occasions lately, 1 have visited the Reading-room, with the object of reading certain papers, and have foxind them absent from the table. On enquiring of the cai-etaker, I have been told that ' they were placed there when received, but have been taken.' I might mention that the Review of Reviews is, one of the papers thus treated, and occasionally Punch is missing. Surely the com mittee conlcl do something to prevent this being continued. Again, no longer ago than this morning, on call ing at the Reading-room, I found a leaf torn bodily from the Adelaide Observer. It is, I. suppose, too- much to exjiect the caretaker to be in. constant attend ance, the salary being limited. I would, however, suggest that the com mittee offer a reward to anyone giving informat...

The floor was termed by all present as perfect, and as for the supper, whio.h was pi'eparod by the local ladies, it was simply splendid. The table was very tastefully decorated with flowers, but bettor still, was heaped up with tho most delicious delicacies, which were done full jus tice to. The ladies were very taste fully dressed.

THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, DEC. 14, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 14 December 1892
THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, DEC. 14, 1892. Once again lias Parliament taken in hand the subject of resuscitating the fallen fortunes of the Midland Railway Company. In our last issue we published a series of pro posals from the Company to the Government, having for their ob ject the renewal of working opera tions, and the completion of the construction of the railway. Very opportunely this fresh scheme has been submitted during the sitting of Parliament, a fact that will en able it to be dealt with promptly and authoritatively. The As sembly has adopted the very prac tical, satisfactory, and expeditious course of submitting the impor tant issues involved to a joint com mittee of both Houses of Parlia ment. The magnitude and ge neral importance of this rational undertaking _clearly demonstrates -that it cannot be allowed to remain indefinitely in stcdu- quo without inflicting grave injury to the trade development, and prospects of the colon}', and detrimentally affecting its reput...
