The [?]obelist. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 January 1880
I|i go«.. MISS HOVEL. (From the French.) \Cont\nuea\~\ ' Raymond was much disturbed, and infin- itely annoyed at «'hat had happened, and he nastily retreated towards the door, fearful lest possibly the enemy might return again to the attack; but justas he was passing out, Meg stood before him, and, taking him by the hand, drew him back again into the inner room. 'What has happened between you and mamma,' she said. He shrugged his shoulders. 'What makes you suppose that anything has happened ?' ' She spoke to me as she passed, and her voice was trembling with passion. Don't treat me like a child. Toll me !' * Well if you must know-she had seen with displeasure the intimacy that apparently .exists between you and a certain Venetian with a white plume in his bonnet.' "_ ' If I believed you,' said she, ' I would beg you to tell her that for the white plume I care not a straw.' ' I took upon myself to say so, and I as- sured her that you had not danced with him more than once at the outs...

Department of Public Works, Perth, Jan. 12th, 1880. The Hon. J. H. Thomas, M.I.C.E., Commissioner for Railways. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 January 1880
Department of Public Works, Perth, Jan. 12th, 1880. The Hon. J. H. Thomas, M.I.C.E., Commis- sioner for Railways. Sir, - I beg permission to report what I have observed in the Southern Districts in regard to squared jarrah, and to forward for your inspec- tion specimens from the various works referred to. A detailed list of the specimens will be found attached. The Preston Bridge is built over the river of' that name, on the Australind road, about two miles from Bunbury ; it was built about thirty five years ago. The presence of teredo is abun- dantly proved by the fact that an old barge of soft-wood skin and oak frame is a perfect honey comb. The piles are 9 in. square ; they were cut between the coast and the hills ; and their preservation throughout is such as that shewn by the specimens. The Bunbury jetty is a work affording re- markable proof of the advantage of hewn timber over round. Its earliest portion was built in 1865, and the first addition in 1868, all of hewn piles. In...
Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 January 1880
(âcasimmi Motes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. From private sources we hear that Mr. Hock- ing has not thought it to his advantage to apply for the vacant office of Chief Justice of Western Australia, and that it is his intention to return i to the colony in May next, in order to resume his duties of Attorney General. Mr. Hookinga health is much improved. We need scarcely say, the assertion lately made that the Government led the public to suppose that the elections would be deferred till the return of the Attorney General, has no foundation in fact. The journal which puts forth this statement appears to be singularly ill-in- formed, and to have a singularly fertile imagina- tion. It has never been any secret that one of the principal reasons which prevented another legal gentleman-to whom the acting position had been previously offered-from accepting it, was that no promise or guarantee of any kind could possibly be given that the elections would not take place before the appointment was per-...

MR. S. H. PARKER AND DR. SCOTT AT TEE CANNING. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
MR. S. H. PARKER AND DR. SCOTT AT TEE CANNING. The ' Reform League ' party have to put up with many and grievous disappointments iu their disinterested efforts to realise their grand and noble scheme. An utter absence of genuine enthusiasm ou the part of the general public blocks the progress of the ' cause ' at every step. It is very sad that such should be the case, but it is uudeniably true all the same. And no effectual remedy is at hand, so far as we can see, for this deplorable state of things. The latest manifestation of this utter absence of patriotic feeling on the part of the ' free and in- dependent ' has been displayed at the Canning, where the star of reform is certainly not in the ascendant. There must have been some male- ficent influence at work when the 'League' were induced to get up a meeting of the Can- ning electors to listen to Mr. S. H. Parker and Dr. Scott expound their political sentiments, for of that meeting it may be truly said-' Par. turiunts montes, et ...

MORE ABOUT THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
MOKE ABOUT THE LAND QUESTION. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAR SIR,-A perusal of the numerous let- ters which have lately appeared in your paper upon the land question must force, upon all who take any interest in the subject, the con- viction that the stock-carrying capabilities of the runs in the Eastern and Southern districts, cannot be much improved upon. Notwith- standing Mr. Brockman's assertion to the con- trary, it has I think been clearly shown by Mr. Burges, Mr. Dempster, and others, that the cost of improving land in the manner suggested by Mr. Brockman would be out of proportion to the benefit likely to be derived. It is very singular that Mr. Brockman's view of the sub- ject should be directly opposed to that of all his brother settlers, for I have never heard of one agreeing with him. I cannot help think- ing that he, in the first instance expressed his opinion without due consideration, or that he has been unable to make that opinion clear to others ; the la...
ELECTIONEERING AT THE PORT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
ELECTIONEERING AT THE PORT. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN: SIR.-Electioneering may be said to have fairly started, and there is no doubt the various candidates will be placed before the electors in the most favorable aspect. There is, however, one caution I would give to voters-that they weigh the arguments submitted to them. It is said by some that all interests must be set aside until Responsible Goverurneut be obtained, be- cause the majority of the people desire it. Towns, therefore returning two members are asked to select men of one opinion. This sounds well ; but are the majority in favor of the pro- posed change ? There are many who look upon the question (at present in its infancy here) with considerable misgivings, and ask who are its parents and how about its constitution. In the first place it is quite certain there are two sets of opinions both in the city and port, and the preponderance in my opinion is against the introduction of Responsible Government at the p...
To the Electors of Perth. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
To the Electors of Perth. GENTLEMEN,-As you have done me the honor to request, by an influential and numerously signed requisition, that I will become a candidate for your sutírages at the forthcoming election, I have much pleasure in accepting the position which you have requested nie to take, and embrace the earliest opportunity of expressing to you what my opinious are on a few of the political topics which to my mind should occupy the attention of all concerned in the interests of the colony at the present time. I am a most strenuous advocate of a change in the political constitution of the colony ; hold- ing that the present administration of public afiairs, with the position assumed by His Excel- lency the Governor in that Administration, is such as to have to a certain extent stultified the labours of a Representative, and otherwise eui- ' cient, Assembly, and plainly demonstrating that the present constitution is merely the shadow of Representative Government without the sub...
AN APPEAL TO THE ELECTORS OF YORK AND BEVERLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
AN APPEAL TO THE ELECTORS OF YOEK AND BEVEELEY. GENTLEMEN,-Your district has always been regarded by the Press, the Legislature, and the public, as the most important in the colony, and yet (strange to say,) you are asked to leave it and go to Perth to get a candidate for your suffrages. Surely so nourishing a district as yours will not quietly brook what seems to me to be not only a slur upon it, but a positive insult to the electors, especially, when Mr. Hamersley, a man well known to you all is ready to place himself at your disposal. Many there are, I know, who will ask you to vote for Mr. Hardey, because he professes to be in favor of Eesponsible Government-a subject which he possibly has not carefully studied, and which he cannot consistently espouse consider- ing the fact that during the present and past Administrations, he has held a seat as a nominee member, and has during his term of office un- mistakably been adverse to such a change. What therefore Mr. Hardey's motive ma...
THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTE, FRIDAY, JAN. 30, 1880. CANDIDATES AT THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
THE Wita %mtxúm. ViGiiiANs ET AUDAX. PERTE, FRIDAY, JAN. 30, 1880. CANDIDATES AT THE TOWN HALL. IT can be but little satisfaction to address a meeting such as that which assembled at the Town Hall on Wednesday night,-if indeed the object with which candidates eome for- ward on such occasions is really to meet the electors whose suffrages they seek, and to obtain some approximate idea of the actual state of feeling in the electorate upon public matters and upon the relative merit of those who are seeking 'legislative honors.' To come before a meeting composed for a large part of persons of very tender age, and in which the bona fide elector is quite in a minority, can be but moderately pleasing, is scarcely satisfactory, and is certainly a waste of power which might, we think, be used to better advantage. Very little satisfaction also could be de- rived by the serious on-looker, who, on the eve of an important general election, and at a time when questions of really grave signi- fica...
ELECTION MEETING IN THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
ELECTION MEETING IN TUE TOWN JJ ALL. A public meeting of the electors of Perth,, was held in the Town Hall on Wednesday evening, for the purpose of affording the three candidates for their suffrages at the approach- ing election an opportunity to expound their political views. There were about 300 persons present, Mr. Shenton, the chairman of the City Council, presiding. Sir. L. S. LEAKE, who was received with cheers, was the first to address the meeting. He said: Mr Chairman and the electors of Perth-When this meeting was first called I believe it was convened for the purpose of enabling Mr. Parker and Dr. Scott to explain their views to the electors ; at the same time I thought that in the interest of the ' elephant' [alluding to a cartoon representing Sir Luke, with which the walls of the city had recently been decorated] I also should be about, this evening." ('Hear, hear,' and laughter.) So here I am ; though, after all I can have but very little to say to you. I have represent...
ROUND v. SQUARE PILES. Northern Railway, Traffic Department, January 23rd, 1880. To The Hon. J. H. THOMAS, M.I.C.E., Commissioner of Railways, Perth. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880
ROUND v. SQUARE PILES. Northern Railway, Traffic Department, January 23rd, 1880. To The Hon. J. H. THOMAS, M.I.C.E., Commissioner of Railways, Perth. SIR.-I have the honor to inform you that in accordance with your instructions in your tele- gram of the 15th inst.. I have inspected the Geraldton jetty, as I informed you by telegram on the 19th inst. I find that the first portion of the jetty piles, which was built so far back as the year 1857, or 1858, are affected by the toredo, to a very con- siderable extent, in fact, I might say, that more than half the piles in this portion are very nearly gone, I mean between the water line and the sand bed. The whole of this part of the jetty, as far as I can gather, was built by the Govern- ment. The second portion, which was built in the year 1865, does not show such apparent signs of toredo as the first ; but, I attribute this to the fact of the piles not having been exposed &nbsp; to the attacks of the worm for the same length of ...
