MR. STEERE AT BUNBURY. (From a Corre[?]pondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880

MR. STEERE AT BUNBURY. (From a Corre-'pondcnf.) A large number of electora who were anxi- ous to hear Mr. Steere's political views attend- ed at the Mechanic's Institute on Saturday last, when that gentleman addressed them at considerable length. It is needless for me to detail the points of his speech as a full report of it is appended. Mr. Steere's opponent, Mr. Venn, took the somewhat unusual course in political warfare, of, without any consultation with Mi-. Steere and his friends-by whom the meeting had been convened, getting up and ad- dressing the meeting, and following Mr. Steere. He thereby had a peg on which to hang his speech. Mr. Venn proceeded to criti- cise some points in Mr. Steere's address, but generally speaking he was glad to find that their views were identical. Mr. Venn, how- ever, made a strong bid for the Catholic vote, by stating that, so far as education was con- cerned, he was in favour of placing the Protest- ants and the Catholics on an equal footing-a so...

Turf Club was commenced on Wednesday last, and had the effect of drawing together the usual concourse of people to the scene of Action. On Tuesday evening, the hotels of the city were largely patronised by crowds of sporting folk from the various country districts, and on Wednesday morning groups of ' horsey'-looking men could be seen stand- ing at the corners of well-known hostelries, discussing the merits of the varions horses entered for the races, giving oracular . advice respecting the prowess of ' Priestess,' and making mysterious hints about ' Basblanc' being firmiy believed in by his owner for the Queen's. As the day wore on, the street...

Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued,] May 12. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880

Exploration From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION :   BY ALEXANDER FORREST, P.R.G.S. [Continued,] May 12. We continued our journey up the river and camped opposite Mount Anderson, which bears N. 25 E., and is about five miles distant. The grassy flats widened out today and ran back for about five miles on this South side. I was anxious to cross the river, and this afternoon we made a raft in the hope of being able to do so ; but all our efforts were unavailing. Marked tree F 76. Lat. of camp, 18 deg. 2 min. 40 sec. by mer. alt, of Acrux. May 13. Twelve miles travel was done today, still fol- lowing up the river banks — the country con- tinuing grassy and clear, and well adapted for sheep or other stock; on the North side also the land and feed are seemingly of the same description. We saw natives today in the dis- tance and they followed us up till we camped, when they sat down and watched us. Their fires were seen in every direction. Marked tree F 77....

MR. BROCKMAN AND MR. HOOLEY AT GUILDFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

MR. BROCKMAN AND MR. HOOLEY AT GUILDFORD. On Saturday last, Mr. E. R. Brock- man and Mr. E. T. Hooley, candidates for the electoral district of the Swan, addressed a meeting of the electors at the court house, Guildford. The chair was occupied by Mr. C. C. Fanntleroy. There was about fifty electors present, and several ladies occupied seats on the platform. Mr. BROCKMAN said he came before them again to offer himself as their representative in the next Legislative Council. He was no stranger to them ; his earliest recollections were of the Swan and of its people. He ap- peared before them that afternoon to give his views on the different matters which had been agitated, and were likely to be agitated, in the political world. He would deal with the constitutional question first-the ques- tion that seemed to be uppermost in men's minds at the present time, and a very critical, time it was, tun. He hoped that the Swan I constituency, and every other constituency I throughout the colony...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

(©ícasronaí Motes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. We understand that an' action for libel haq been entered bj' Mr. Wynne, late commissioner at the Lacepede Islands, against the Eerala newspaper. The libel complained of consists of a letter published in the Herald, some time ago, by^a Mr. MacDonald, attributing certain law- less acts to the plaintiff in his capacity as com- missioner. Mr. S. H. Parker has been retained as connsel for the plaintiff, and Messrs. Stone & Burt for the defendant,¿the editor of the Herald. We have been favoured by Messrs. Lilly & Co, with the basis of the new contract entered into between them and the Local Government in connection with the coastal and inter-colonial mail services. The contract as formerly em- braces the services of the s s Rob Roy and the Otway. The former will make a bi-monthly trip from Geraldton, via Fremantle, Bunbury aud the Vasse-calling at the two latter ports con- ditionally upon the weather permitting-to Al- bany, there meeti...

YESTERDAY'S ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

YEïlERDAY'S ELECTION. The election of two candidates for the repre- sentation of the Perth electorate iu the Legis- lative Council took place yesterday. There were three aspiring postulants for senatorial honors, namely Sir Luke Leake, Mr. S. H. Par- ker, and Mr. Edward Scott. The friends and supporters of each candidate commenced the work of the election with a conviction that the struggle would be one of the most arduous and tierce upon record ; and two of the candidates and their friends must have lost many a pound of solid flesh by their etienuouB exertions to j whip up tardy, and ensure doubtful, electors. The third candidate, whose uature rendered i hit»» more phlegmatic than his more excitable rivals, took matters more philosophically, and, by so'much, cooler than they. And the result j of the election proved he was right. ' Mr. Sheriff Roe, the returning officer, was : at the hustings in the Town Hall shortly before ten o'clock in the morning, and lost no time in placing his...

CRICKET. NEW NORCIA v. METROPOLITAN CRICKET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

CRICKET. NEW NORCIA V. METROPOLITAN CRICKET CLUB. This match was played on the .old Perth ground on Tuesday, the 3rd instant. A chal- lenge had arrived from Mr. Lefroy a fortnight previously, and, although the Metropolitans had not at that time begun practice, they unanim- ously accepted the challenge, and set to work in earnest for the short time that was left to them. The New Norcians arrived from Guild- ford flushed with victory, and had shown them- selves to have much improved since last season ; the result therefore was not altogether unex- pected. The wickets wera pitched at 10 a.m., the Guildford coir carpet having been engaged for the occasion. Perth won the toss, and elected to send their opponents to the wickets. It was soon evident that the batting of the New Nor- cians was very different from their first essay twelve mouths ago, as Blurton, Walley, Jack imarra, and Yappo all showed good form, their captain (Mr. Lefroy) heading the score with 14. well put together. The in...

FREMANTLE ELECTION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

FREMANTLE ELECTION. To .THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-The Herald has said some very hard things about Mr. Marmion of late, and some wonderful clever things too. One of these is to the effect that it would be a great pity to return him for Fremantle as, in the event of his not being elected he would be sure of being made a nominee; and that the constituency would thus have the benefit of his services in the Council besides those of the other two can- didates. What judge ! The Herald must im- agine that the electors. of Fremantle are a set of dupes, when, in sober earnest, it can give expression to such vfiws hoping thereby to make an impression. If Mr. Marmion went in as a nominee it would not be within his pro- vince to advocate the interests of any particular district. My idea of a nominee-I imagine it is not far from being correct-is that of an automason guided by the will of government ; of a being who has no solition of his own, whose sole end is being in the chamber i...

AFFAIRS AT NORTHAM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

AFFAIRS AT NORTHAM. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-Will you kindly allow me space to make a few remarks regarding letters and com- plaints that have appeared in the Eastern Dis- trict! Chronicle against the police at Northam. I have lived in and near Northam for 22 years, and have been much interested in the welfare of this great place of strife, and, knowing that the police have no means of defending them- selves, I think it is the duty of others to speak for them when they are improperly maligned. I have read a letter in the Uhroniele, dated the 6th. inst. and signed 'One who knows/ which I can endorse in the main, and it there- fore leaves me little to say. But I would ask the writer of the communication of which I com- plain, what hasfcaused his change of opinion with regard to the particular officer he attacks. Does he remember the letters in praise of the present corporal which he formerly wrote, and in which he called that officer-' the right man in the right plac...

OUR TRADE WITH SOUTH AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

OUR TRADE WITH SOUTH AUSTRALIA. To THE EDITOK. DEAR SIR,-I have read with much pleasure and satisfaction the clear, independent speech of Mr. Steere to the electors of Bunbury, and I perfectly agree with his clear-sighted view of our wants. Yes, s'r, we do want independent men in Council-men who will be able not only to resist * Government House influence,' but also the influence of selfish constituents, -when they can clearly see it is for the good of the colony to do so. It is true I myself did not speak much in Council during its late sittings, as I was a novice to legislatorial duties, it being my maiden ses- sion. But though I did not say much, I ob- served all the more, and one observation I made was-that all those members who were pledged for Responsible Government had not a will of their own ; they were bound to do just as their constituents, or the wire-pullers, told them, whe- ther they considered it was for the general good of the colony or uot. They did not care for that...

BEVEELEY, Feb. 3. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

BEVEELEY, Feb. 3. The district of Beverley, as an agricultu- ral and pastoral district, can hold her own with any of her sisters throughout the col- ony. Yet, as regards national sports, she may hitherto have been considered a little behind the age. " BHt at last she moves." A race club has been formed, and the first race meeting is to take place on the 3rd of March next. Everything must have a beginning, and this, no doubt, will eventually become a public institution : but whether such may ultimately become a benefit or an evil in the district is not for me to determine. But let us all wish it success. Already, many are busily engaged in training for the coming event. The weather of late has been most oppres- sive, and, to add to the already unbearable state of the temperature, we have all but been enveloped in bush fires. Consequently, many have suffered severely, and although none have lost their homesteads, some have narrowly escaped. Sheep-runs, fields, and fences have been chi...

Country Letters. BUSSELTON, 28th Jan. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

tontrp mtttxs, BUSSELTON, 28th Jan. Two years and nine months ago the build- ings of Busselton Government mixed schools were utterly insufficient to accommodate the children who ought to attend school ; the operation of the compulsory clause was sus- pended, and new comers could not be re- ceived. These, facts and the objectionable arrangement of herding together nearly a hundred scholars of both sexes and all ages, were duly laid before the Central Board of Education and the recommendation of the District Board was approved-the schools should he divided into separate boys' and firls' schools, and a new room should be uilt for the latter. After a delay of about eighteen months, a tender was at last accepted for the erec- tion of the new room-hardly separate, as it was to be built on to the old school room, though there was abundant space for one entirely separate and at a distance-and indeed the first tenderer was willing and anxious to erect such a room at the same price as the add...

TOODYAY, February 3. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

TOODYAY, February^ The election of a member of Couucil for Tood- yay will have come off before these notes ap- pear in print. Mr. Henry Brockman was spoken of as likely to come forward to contest the election with Mr. Shenton, aud as he had de- clared himself in favor of a responsible govern- ment he would stand no chance of being re- turned. So I thiuk he wisely refrained from contesting the election. 1 know the feelings of the people in this district, and that 95 in the 100 are for letting things remain as they are, rather than attempt a constitution we cannot work. The price of wheat has been fixed at4s.6d. per bushel, and it will not pay to grow at that price. We have had a plentiful yield, a fine season for harvest work, and the corn has been got in well and sound ; but I think an unfair advantage has been taken of our abundance by fixing so low a price. Is this the way to en- courage the farmer ? If there had been a bad crop we would have got 6s. 6d., and the defi- ciency impo...

Mr. PEARSE said : In addressing you this evening, I must in the first place crave your indulgence, for I assure you, I don't feel equal to the occasion. [A VOICE : Bring him a glass of whiskey.] At the same time, it is very gratifying to me to see such a large audience, showing by their presence the interest which people take in political matters in this town. Gentlemen, at the close of the last session of the Legislative Council it was not my intention to offer myself again as a candidate to represent you, but having received such an influentially signed requisition, couched in such com- plimentary terms, I could ...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

êumtmu Uottë. LOCAL AND GENERAL. I Mr. Howlett writes to us as follows relat- ing to a paragraph that appeared among these notes on Tuesday " I shall esteem it a favor if you will cause a correction to appear in the next issue of the West Australian, re- lating to the accident in the brickyard. No accident has occurred in our yard ; the casualty referred to happened, I believe, at Claisebrook, ina yard leased by Mr. Gray." Mr. J. DeCourcey Hillman writing from Geraldton says : " In your issue of the 30th January, you give the Guildford cricket club the credit of being the first to introduce a coir bowling carpet into the colony. The Geraldton cricket club have had one in con- stant use, and it was imported from Adelaide nearly two years ago."
