GRANTS FOR ROADS. TO THE EDITOR W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 8 December 1874

GRANTS FOE ROADS. TO TBK EDITOB W. A. TIMES. Sib,-With reference to your remarks upon road making, &c, in this morning's paper you have forgotten one particular case in point. Take the road from the York boundary, south ; then the one on the Avon,-between thirty and forty miles of main line, surveyed, cleared and bridged. This line, with only the settlers' traffic upon it, would cost but little, as it is three-fourths, or may be seven-eighths of the traffic is by sandalwood teams, the owners of which have no interest in the district whatever. They merely take the benefits of the roads which we make, and give nothing ; even the tax on the drays goes to York, Perth, or else- where. The whole of the Government grant, with the tax on our own drays, is expended on this main line, nothing on minor roads ; four- teen miles minor road, I keep in repair at my own private expense. On the Dale line (further West) they have very little more than their own traffic,* so that about two mon...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 11 December 1874

®6* ©estent australian ®imes. soiiuar non mutât genus. FE^DAYr^ECEMBERÍíTl874. The final departure of H. E. Governor Weld, from the capital city of the colony and from Government House, seems a fitting opportunity to review the course and results of his Government, more fully than has hitherto been done, either by ourselves or by Mr. Weld's recent panegyrists ; and, in so doing, to justify what we have asserted concerning them. We have said that Mr. Weld's birth, education, and antecedents, had specially qualified him for the office which he still holds over us. If by birth simply third son of Humphrey Weld, Esq., of Chidi ock Manor, Co. Dorset, the first two would have been assured, but his mater- nal descents, in the first line, from the Cliffords of Ugbrook, and, in the se- cond, from the Stanleys of Hooton and the Artjndells of Wardour, might add dignity even to a descendant of the Welds of Lulworth. Were we writing as heralds or genealogists wè should here find a theme worthy t...

Departure of the Governor. VÁLEDICTORr DEMONSTRATION AT FREMANTLE. Fremantle was en fête on Wednesday, the occasion being the presentation of a valedictory address to His Excellency the Governor on his departure for Tasmania. There was also a re- view of the troops, and the day was obser ved as a holiday, in order the better to afford the public an opportunity, of testifying and manifesting their loyalty to the representative of " the best Sovereign that ever donned a diadem." The weather, bright, clear, and se- rene, favoured the occasion ; and curiosity and loyalty combined attracted a large concourse of people to witness the ceremony of presenta- tion, which was made publicly in the open air, on the spot designated " The Green." Why or wherefore it should be so designated, unless as a matter of flourtesy, or on the lucas a non lu cendo principle, it would be difficult to say, seeing that almost all the year lound the pre- vailing colour of the surface is dingy brown, and not that...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 11 December 1874

Local and General. A NUISANCE.—The bathing season has again come round, and gives promise of a re- petition of the nuisance which, in common with our contemporary, we have year after year drawn the attention of the authorities to. We allude to the practice too commonly indulged in of bathing in the river at all hours of the day in full view of passers by. This indecent habit is not confined to little boys and girls, but to children of older growth, and it is one that requires prompt and decisive treatment. Were there a more active supervision in matters of this kind the evil would have been suppressed long ago. The steamer jetty and the road leading under Mount Eliza afford two of the most pleasant promenades in the city, especi- ally during the summer season ; but, under ex- isting circumstances, respectable females are prevented from enjoying them. Something should be done,—what, does not much matter —to abate if not to suppress the nuisance. SOUVENIR.—His Excellency the Governor,...
