THE RIGHT USE OF THE STEW-POT [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 November 1879

THE RIGHT USE OF THE STEW-POT The Editor asks me to write something for his ' Ladies' Column,' and I eagerly seize the opportunity to disburden my mind upon a subject which I have much at heart; I want to teach my West Australian country-women how to stew. There are of course exceptions to every rule ; but, as a rule, we know no- thing at all about it, or if we do, we certainly don't practice what we know. Housewives living in town, have no idea what a part that stew-pot plays in our bush economy. In town you can always get a joint of some sort or another, which requires com- paratively speaking but little art in its pre- paration for the table; but, in the bush, when yon are probably supplied with mutton from your own flocks?where the meat is often very poor, very frequently reduced to culls, and you have to make use of all parts of the carcase, a decent joint is often a rarity, and the stew-pot comes into constant requisi- tion. Now unless you know how to use that stew-pot properl...

THE DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 November 1879

THE DINNER. After the distribution of the prizes on Tues-   day evening the 18th inst, a considerable num- ber of the members of the Club adjourned to the Freemason's Hotel to partake of an excellent re- past in the preparation of which Mrs. James fully sustained the high reputation of her host elrie. Brisk conversation was the order of the day, and so soon as justice had been done to the viands the fun of the evening began. After the usual loyal toast had been duly honored, Mr. G. Knight, (the Vice President of the Club) proposed the toasts of the evening "Prosperity of the Perth Yacht and Boat Club " and called upon Mr. J. C. H. James to respond. The latter was " in the vein ", spoke in his most felicitous manner, making considerable capital out of a model of an Australian barque in full sail—placed on the table by way of ornament—which he hoped would never have to face the horrors of the Australian Bight. In the course of his remarks he expressed his sincere convicti...

FREMANTLE, PERTH, AND GUILDFORD RAILWAY. PROGRESS OF THE WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 November 1879

FREMANTLE, PERTH, AND GUILDFORD RAILWAY. Progress of the Works. Commissioned by the West Australian to re- port upon the progress being made in the con- struction of the first section of the Eastern Railway, we proceeded to the starting point, Fremantle, a few days ago, and on arriving at the station ground we were rather surprised to find that the old familiar " Green" had almost entirely disappeared. What with the stripping off of the emerald turf, and the substitution of large stacks of railway iron and of the contrac- tor's sleepers, one can scarcely recognize the old spot. That this site is suitable for the rail- way station there cannot be the slightest doubt; in fact, had one been made to order we do not see how it could be improved upon. The contractor has not yet formed the line   here but has some 14,000 railway sleepers, which are supplied by the Jarrahdale Timber Co. and shipped from Rockingham in lighters, land- ed on the town jetty and trollied round to th...

FUNERAL OF THE LATE CHIEF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

I FUNERAL OF THE LATE CHIEF " JUSTICE. If any visible proof had been required to show how highly the late Chief Justice was respected in Perth, and its vicinity, it would be found in the long cordon of citizens of all classes, and of every denomination, who on Sunday morning followed his remains to their last resting place in the Church of England Cemetery. Friends as- sembled in great numbers, not only from Perth and the surrounding neighborhood, but also from Fremantle as well as Guildford to take part in tho obsequies, and had time allowed for a larger notice being given, the attendance would, doubt" less, have been even larger than it was. As the hour at which it was announced that the cortege would start (half-past eight) drew near, a larjge crowd assembled opposite the residence of the.: deceased,' in Adelaide Terrace, anxiously wafting to see the mournful procession formed. Having been a member of, the Freemasons of the district, there was a strong muster of the members of th...

THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF JOURNALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

THE KESPONSIBILITIES OE JOURNALISM. Ay absolute regard for truth,?a determina- tion that truth and honesty and singleness of purpose shall be the foundation stones on which its work shall rest,?should be the main-spring and the guiding principle of every public journal. Placed in a position which may give much power to influence the minds of hundreds either for good or evil, no words can be too strong to characterize the crime of those who prostitute this power to serve improper ends and evil purposes? who have no consciousness of the trust that is committed to them to use rightly and honestly, fairly and truthfully, and to the best of their ability with probity and honour One man cannot necessarily be expected to see a question in the same light as an. other. He is perfectly right as a journalist to argue his views in as strong and convin- cing a way as he can.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

To the Editor of the West Australian; Sir,?I have lately heard of a very simple j labour-saving contrivance by which trees can be | grabbed with a celerity, according to my infor- mant, truly marvellous?I understand it is by some process of leverage worked by bullocks. Perhaps some of your readers may be able to afford us farmers information on the Bubject. Nothing could be of greater importance in a country where the chief hindrance to the exten- sion of farm cultivation is the heavy clearing necessary. I am, sir, yours, etc., S.O.L. 17th. November, 1879. [We think it was Mr. Maitland Brown who informed us that he had witnessed the process referred to, in South Australia; the results were truly astonishing. Perhaps Mr. Brown may be able to advise 'S. O. L.' how to obtain the infor- mation he desires.?Ed. W.A.]

Farm and Station. LESSONS FROM CATTLE SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

f\M\\x ani j&teti<ra. LESSONS FROM CATTLE SHOWS. Our agricultural and pastoral exhibitions should serve other purposes besides that of grati- fying the desire of owners of good stock to dis- play the choice animals of their nocks and herds to the public gaze. Indeed, the result should be something very practical to compensate the associations for the vast amount of labour imposedjuponthemingettinguptheannualshows. That the benefits accruing from these public dis- plays are very appreciable, cannot, however, be doubted. They are much more than a mere custom or fashion, perpetuated from force of habit, or followed for fashion's sake. An exhibi- tion of stock, implements, and produce is, in most cases, an excellent gauge by which to measure the result of past efforts, and also to form an opinion as to the direction in which the various country industries are tending." No man of observation and reflection caii visit the annual exhibitions of our leading associations w...

.(flwratcg Ifette. VASSE, Nov. 15. The renovation of an old friend amongst the newspapers of the colony is hailed with pleas- ure in this district,?not because we have any e reason for complaint against your long estab- lished contemporaries, but because competition engenders improvements and leads to progress in many and various directions, and because we have confidence in the new management under which the West Australian appears; and, lastly, because it gives us the advantage of two weekly issues without any increase in the price. These are strong recommendations and cannot fail to command a hearty and liberal support from the settlers of this district, as well as from those of the other districts of the colony. I propose to give you now and then a few dottings of local as well as such other news and events as may affect the district either directly or indirectly, and make such comments thereon as occasion may seem to suggest or require.

CHARGE OF,STEALING TIMBER [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

CHARGE OF,STEALING TIMBER At the Perth police court on Wednesday last, a man named David Hay was charged with having stolen, in or before the month of Aug- ust last, a quantity of wooden rails, and some bolts and spikes, valued at £30, the property of the Jarrahdale Timber Co. On a second count, the accused was indicted for receiving the same, knowing them to have been stolen. The in- formation was laid by Mr. Halsted, the local manager of the company. Mr. Frank Stone (from the office of Stone and Burt) appeared for the company; the prisoner was defended by Mr. S. H. Parker. Joseph Farrelly, the detective police con- stable in charge of the case, said he was sta- tioned at Jarrahdale, and that on the 3rd Nov. inst, he went to execute a search warrant on Mrs. Walton's premises, near the company's railway. He there observed several fresh tracks, converging upon a main track leading in the direction of a piece of land which had recently been fenced, and belonging to Mrs. Walton, for wh...

<2»%i The Hon. George Walpole Leake, Q.C., Crown Solicitor, has been appointed Acting Chief Justice until permanent arrangements arc completed. It is considered probable that the vacant Judgeship will be conferred upon tho present Attorney General, Mr. Hocking. It was Mr. Hocking's intention to come out in April next; his friends hear from him that he considers Western Austra- lia better suited to his health than any other climate. The Homo Governmeut have al- ready recognised Mr. Hocking's services by giving him the Acting Chief Justiceship of Gibraltar, and, as already said, there is every probability that the vacant Chief Jus- ticeship of Western Australia will be offered him. No doubt, should he be appointed, it would give general satisfaction in this co- lony, although his services would be much missed botulin the Executive Council and in the House. Mr. E. A. Stone has accepted the dual office of Acting Attorney General and Act- ing Crown Solicitor, vice the Hon. G. ...
