IN REPLY TO MR. RAMSAY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

\ 1 -? IN REPLY TO MR. RAMSAY. TO THJG EDITOB. SIB,-After writing my notes to you yesterday, I hare read a letter in your is- sue of January 2 from Mr. W. O'. Ram- say, called forcit by a former letter, of mme relative to Agricultural Societies. He seem» to have strangely mistaken my intensions and accuses mu of casting in- sinuations at au eú hitor and of making assertions that cannot be borne out by facts. I was fiuditig fault with the BVB tem iu which the. Agricultural Societies are carried ou and not witlithe exhibitors. I would also remind Mr. Ramsay that three different persons showed imported bulls at Buubury Show this year so I fail to see why he should have thought the remarks alluded to referred specially to himself, not that it would be derogatoiy io his character if they did. Mr. Ram- say also wonders if *. A Southerner" is a friend to the " small farmer," and " whe- ther he has ever given that so called sel- fish individual a chance of selliug him. one."

THE QUEENSLANDER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

TSE QUEENSLANDER. THE Queenslander is a journal we great» ly admire ; it is ably conducted ; it is admirably got up ; and it is a credit to the colony which it represents. The Queenslander also, generally seems to be fair and moderate in its comments. It appears, however, that poor Western Australia is so insignificant that it is not considered necessary to treat her with the same consideration as would be extended : to her neighbours. Thus ia a recent I paragraph tho Queenslander refers to j certain late passages of arms between ! the West Australian and the Judicial Bench in a manner which shows that our contemporary had not taken the slightest ! trouble to ascertain the facts of the case, i although it had every meaus at its dis- posal for doing so. First it states that ! the West Australian " went for " the Chief Justice because he had ordered costs to fqllow a verdict against it in a libel case where the jury had awarded one farthing damages. Upon, this statement we would only ...

Typhoid Fever in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

Typhoid Fever in Sydney. Tho subject of typhoid fever has been recently exciting a deal of attention in Sydney. Contrary to the expectations of many it is not the closely built portions of the town proper which aro considered by the medical authorities as natural factors in the propagation of the disease, but some of the suburb* nud environs of the city are said to be more dangerous to health on account of the insufficient ar- rangements for proper drainage. This fault, it appeais, is chiefly to be Inid at tile doors of the laud speculators. When the (and craze was nt its height in thc New South "Welsh metropolis, parcels of laud were cut up into such ridiculously small blocks ns to render it difficult to take the proper precautions for ensuring healthy drainage. The rage for economy led tho builder to avoid all expense, where it could not he noted by the eye, and the want of proper municipal inspection com- pleted the matter. The natural result was that typhoid fever not long after...

A New Dining Table. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

A Hew Dining Table. Mortimer Cullins dearly loved the old fashioned table. The Modern Hotel with «li its well nigh countless mudes of pro- viding to the fall for the well being of its patrons did not find favour in his sight. He preferred the cosy looking inn, with its plain homely face and cool delicious howe brewed ale, its burly landlord, and comely buxom landlady, its semi-stupid serving-men and women. It is therefore easy to conceive with what genuine dis- gust he would liave read the account which recently appeared in an exchange of an invention of an American genius, which, if it succeeds, will in all proba- bility find a place in all well-regulated hotel establishments. .This genius has invented an electric dinning table. Un- like the ordinary hotel diuiug table it is not presided over by a guardian spirit in evening dress who answers to the name of " waiter." It belongs to a higher species of table than that, and eau fetch and carry at the diner's will. Mr. A. seated at one...

The new Land Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

The new Laud Regulation». In another part of the WESTERN MAIL will be found au abstract of all the im- portant changesrecominended by the Select Committee appointed by the Legislative Council last session, to consider the ad visabilility of altering our present land laws. The complete code a* published in the Government Gazette was too lengthy for insertion. We have, therefore, given only the alterations proposed. These, however, will be found to cover sub- stantially the whole ground, dealing as they do with the heads of subdivision of tho colony, alienation, and the conditions, terms, aud period of pastoral tenure. At a glance our farmers and squatters will be able to recognise the degree to which they will bo affected by the new i proposals. It is not iutended to discuss j thea» suggested changes at present. ' Later on, as the time for the meeting of the Legislative Council approaches, it is trusted that all who have a word to say about our land system, will not hesitate to commu...

Why only Cabs by Day. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

Why only Catos toy Bay. A. correspondent sends us the follow- ing. He maintains it contains two con- siderable recommendations, it recites a true episode which befell a friend of his in Perth, and it gires rise to an excellent moral anent of night cabs. Its moral- ity and .truth being thus avouched, with diffidence we giro it publication : " He was not half BB bad as he thought he was, and when he'd got safely past the police-or rather perhaps when the police had got safely past bim, as he cunningly pretended to be striking.a match for his cigarette up against the wall of a large store in St. George's Terrace whilst the gentlemen in blue walked by-he pulled himself together and carefully tacking out into the middle of the road, to get as much sea room as possible, he began to feel so thankful or more correctly spean ing so cheerful, as to be almost inclined to lift up his voice in song, but somehow his body seemed too heavy for his legs and wanted to go faster than they could carry ...

The Strikes in Melbourne and Adelaide. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

The Strikes in Melbourne and Adelaide. Our friends in Victoria and South Aus- tralia, hare bean making rather extensivo use of the strike sjstota of late. In Mel- bourne especially, a perfect epidemic of j strikes appears to have set iu. The bootmakers, bus driver*, wharf labourers, sugar sorters, millars, are among some of these in that city who hare invoked the arbitration of the deity that presides over the strife of "capital" and "labour." lt is curious that the two centres of the Btriko movement at present should bo, the one remarkable for the depression every- where prevailing in its business circles, the other especially noted for the activity of trade which ali reports attribute to it. At the same time there have not been wanting whispers that the employment in which the strikes have taken place ia Melbourne have not, if we except the omnibus traffic, been amongst, the most flourishing of late, and it is likely the pinch upon the masters has mads it- self likewise felt in th...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

New Zealand. It is really a matter worth wonder whether the good people of Kew /Seeland see any* thing alarming in their present position. They may be assured that if they do not, there are many outside their tight little islands who do. When a few year« ! ago Sm JULIUS VOGEL was vailed anew to the head of affairs, New Zealanders were confident that his financial capacity would set things in that colony,-and they were very bad just then,-right in a trice. Unhappily 6>IR Juiitrs' career since that dat« hat» only pricked the bub ble of his former fame, lie found the country living at a perilously extravagant rate. The settlers were largely depend- ant on the expenditure of loan monies on public works. Trade was depressed failures were frequent, and workmen were passing away in crowds to the otber colonies. SIB JULIUS took his place as Premier, amid the excited plaudits of his friends, and even a good deal of hope from those who generally distrusted and disliked him. Sut when he cam...

A New Mechanics' Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

A Kew Mechanics' Institute/ Mention has already been made in the press of tha proposal to increase the accommodation of the Swan River Mechanics' Institute by enlarging the library aud the reading room. The plan and specifications, "which were obtained by the committee were, howefer, practically shelved for a time by the annual meeting on Monday. Two reasons for so doing influenced the members. In the first place, it was felt that the discussion of plans for altering the premises ought to ba left to a special committee with full power to carry out the conclusions they arrived at. In the second place, a pro- posal "was made to add a story to the building which, at a little inore than double the cost of the committee's plans, w<;uld give sufficient accommodation for many years to come. It would provide a number of offices, and a much better hall thaw the one in use, and then might be turned to profitable account. After some conversation it was decided to appoint a committee...

The S.R. Mechanics' Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

TIte*S.R. Mechanics' Institute. ^ To judge by the voting, and by other signs, the decision of j thejmetubers of the Swan River Mechanics' Instituto to open the reading room on Sunday afternoon and evening« appears to have given a good deal of satisfaction. Whether those who have hitherto been debarred to a certain extent from exercising their privileges of membership daring week days, will now avail themselves of the Sunday opening remains, of course, to be seen. There seems every prospect of a number of young men exchanging the dreariness of pro- menading or standing ut the corners of the streets for the profitable pleasures of the reading room. And it is to be boped that in throwing open the doors of the Institute on Sunday, the Society will benefit by a large increase in its subscrib- ers. Contrary to the expectations of many, tho bringing forward the proposal was sot the means of securing a large attendance. But of the thirty or forty persons present the consensus of opinion was...

Ah, George ! but you will call me Birdie after we are married ?" George gave a start, and his face «rrew pale. He quiokly recovered himself, and said manfully : " No, Jennie, I cannot tell a lie. 1 shall not call you Birdie after marriage.

" What's the matter with hired men ?" " Too high-toned and important. Why, I had one last spring who rigged np an um- brella over the plough so as not to get tanned, and he refused to eat with the family because we stuck our knives in our mouths ! At the end of the week he quit. Said that labour was ennobling and so forth, but the landscape in the vicinity offended his taste." " Yes." " Waal, I took on another, and he put on cuffs and polished his boots before going to work, and he quit at the end of a fortnight because we didn't have a pianner in the house. Why, that chap never got up till seven o'clock, and he insisted on going to the village to get shaved and perfumed up every other evening. The third one quit me yesterday.

--- Professor Huxley. i I In a recent lecture Professor Huxley re- marked " For forty years of my life tobacco had been a deadly poison to me (loud cheers from the anti-tobacconists). In my youth, Í as a medical student, I tried to smoke. In vain ! at every fresh attempt my insidious ' foe stretched me prostrate on the floor (re- peated cheers). I entered the navy. Again I tried to smoke, and again met with defeat, I hated tobacco. I could almost have lent my support to any institution that had for its object the putting of tobacco smokers to death (vociferous cheering). A few years ago I was in Brittany with some friends. "We j went to an inn. They began to smoke. They looked very happy, and outside it was very wet and diemal. I thought I would try a cigar (murmurs). I did so (great expecta- tions). I smoked that cigar-it was delicious ! (groans). From that time I was a changed man ; and I now feel that smoking in moder- ation is a comfortable and laudable practice, and is producti...
