THE TURF. A RE[?]ROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

IRE 2ÜBF. A BETBOSPECT. The racing at the annual meeting of the W. A. Turf Club was above the average as compared with that of former years, but great strides must be made before such a programme shall be provided as will repay a journey to the course and back in the heat of February. A glance over the statistics reveals a state of things unknown in other lands. For example, exclusive of post-entry and hack races, but thirteen animals took part in eight events, and of these thirteen there were two which could not expect to win any race anywhere out of the company of each other. The result of such a state of things is that the first day's racing usually too clearly foreshadows that of the second. In this country a good field of horses is un- known, and this must be the case for some time to come, unless a weight-for-age hack race, with £50 added, and £1 entrance, should find a place in the programme ; indeed we believe that such a race would not only be very popular, but would also e...

MR. CROWTHER AT GREENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

MR. CROWTHER AT GREENOUGH. Our political contest has commenced. Mr. Crowther, who, so far as is known at present, will be unopposed at the Greenough election, addressed his constituents at Stephen's Hotel last evening (Jan. 30.) The meeting, under the able management of the Chairman, Mr. J. S. Maley, was conducted iii a most orderly man- ner, and was the largest assemblage of people that has gathered on the Greenough to discuss public measures for years past-evidently show- ing that the late good season has given our farmers more heart to enter into political mat- ters. Mr. Crowther spoke for about three quar- ters of an hour, and was attentively listened to throughout, and, as is usual in his public ut- terances, quite carried his audience with him, by the manly, outspoken manner in which he put his views forward on the different questions of the day-especially that of Responsible Govern- ment, to which, at the present time he is op- posed. He also strongly animadverted on the mann...

CANDIDATES ON THE PLATFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

CANDIDATES ON THE PLATFORM. To WADE through the election speeches which have been fast pouring in the last few days, our readers will doubtless find weary work. With two exceptions those we publish today go over the same old ground-the iniquities of the Government, and the 'responsible' cure. A great m iny things are said to catch votes, which the speakers would never dream of repeating in private conversation to any sensible man. And here we would wish to point out a hiatus in public opin- ion that wants filling up. Mr. STEERE tells us that we should return members sufficiently independent in character to resist what he calls ' Government House influence.' He is perfectly right. Others take up the cue and urge the same thing. But, to our mind, Mr. STEERE scarcely goes far enough. Would it not be well, also, if we took care to return men ' suffi- ciently independent in character to re- sist,' not only Government House influ- ence-which, no doubt is very bad, al- ways specially aimed...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, FEB. 10, 1880. IRISH FAMINE RELIEF. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, FEB. 10, 1880. IRISH FAMINE RELIEF. VERY quaint, and somewhat profane in sound, though not in the remotest degree in intention, were the words with which ROWLAND HILL once opened a charity sermon : " ' He that giveth to the Lord, " lendeth to the poor, and it shall be " returned to him after many days.' " This is the text, my brethren ; if you " like the security, down with the dust !" Happily, we can say with some confi- dence that this is a security on which our fellow colonists and Australians gen- erally are willing to risk a good deal. They are ever found ready to give both out of their abundance and out of their need to succour distress and to help in misfortune. Therefore we are able to come forward today without hesitation, in full reliance that we shall meet with a hearty response, and appeal to our read- ers on behalf of the thousands now starving in Ireland. The telegrams so frequently coming in with regard to this t...

ROUND versus SQUARE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

ROUND versus SQUARE. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-I pursume the Director of Public Works has had almost enough of publicopinion on the question of round versus square* jarrah piles, but it is a question of vital importance to one of the principal industrious of the colony, and before he or those who advocate his views give a positive opinion they should be fully .prepar- ed to back that opinion up. Doctors are said to differ, and so do engenieet-s. I differ from Mr. Thomas, in the matter, aud having bad more experience than that gentleman in ray profession. 1 can with confidence do so. I am only sur- prised that during the time he has been in the colony he has not by personal observation proved the value of the material with which he has so much to do, and upon which the durability of his work so much depends. I would rather, if I had a doubt about ¿arah, in the first place, record existing facts and then accept the opinions of such gentlemen as Messrs Manning and Jewe...

Correspondence. A REFUTATION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

(&0mfs$iiûtm. A REFUTATION. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-After the authoritative,:denial given by you, in your issue of last Tuesday, to the state- ment made by the Herald-that the Governor in- directly intimated to me that he would with- hold the elections for Perth during the time I held the appointment of Acting Attorney Gen- eral, I thought the editor of your contemporary would be satisfied that his assertion was incor- rect. But I notice the matter is again referred to last Saturday, and the editor goes so far as to challenge you to publish my denial of the truth of this statement. In the hope that I may be able to Batisfy the editor of the Herald that his assertions are incor- rect, I will state that it is not true that the gen- tleman who spoke to me in reference to the ac- ceptance of the acting appointment led me toinfer that my acceptance of it would not interfere with my fulfilling my pledges to the electors ef Perth. It is true that I asked when the...

GERALDTON, February 5. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 February 1880

GERALDTON, February 5. Nothing goes down now except politics. ' Who do you vote for,' just now varies the question usually asked as to your health or the weather. The latest utterances are from the veteran reformer Henry Gray, who ad- dressed a public meeting in Geraldton on Monday last. There was a good attendance but the majority were non-electors. The speech and meeting are reported in the Vic- torian Express, and, but for the names of men and place being mentioned, no one would imagine that the report referred to the meeting at all. Indeed, with regard to the active agency of some of Mr. Gray's supporters, he might fairly cry out ' Save me from my friends.' Mr. Stephen Stout in- formed the audience that he had interested himself in getting up the meeting-which did not seem to please those connected with it ; he also informed the meeting that the gentle- man who had promised to take the chair had not put in an appearance. However, after some little persuasion, Mr. McCann was in- ...

Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] May 25. (Sunday.) Rested in camp and read prayers. Ten na- tives came in this morning and remained with us all day, many others being occasionally visible in the distance and apparently too timid to approach. The weather was very cloudy, with every appearance of rain. May 26. Steering N.E. this morning, we came to a splendid grassy plain intersected by a large dry river which we had some trouble to cross. Continuing through the same kind of fine country for six miles more we reached a swamp, very deep and with abnndance of wild fowl, where we camped. From this plain in every direction magnificent level lands extend, — the best I have seen yet on the Fitzroy. From the camp there is a fine view of the St. George ranges ; I also see a high hill to the N.E. and a low wooded range to the Eastward. Shot a number of ducks. Marked tree F 90. May 27.

The Trabeller. FROM NEW YOEE TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 February 1880

I|e faMla". FROM NEW YOEE TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. BT WALTEB PADBUBY. I started from London for New York per s.s. Australian, on August 23rd. 1879, and after encountering a somewhat rough passage, arrived at New York on Sunday Sept. 7. This is a wonderfully busy place, and, as re- gards the street traffic, on the tram-cars, there seems to be very little difference in that res- pect between Sunday and any other day. As to the streets themselves, they do not appear to be kept in as good a state of preservation as the London streets. The pavement is so rough that, what with the constant lumbering noise of vehicles crossing it at all hours of the night, sleep, to a new comer, is almost impossible. The buildings, however, 1 re- gard as finer, or at any rate larger, than those of the English metropolis ; most of them are less than five stories high, and many of them six or seven. On the day following our arrival in New York, I ascend...

After speaking of the members pledged to Re- sponsible Government, and kindly informing us that we had not a will of our own, Mr. Burges proceeds : " I spoke to every one of " them on the flour question, and pointed " out to tbem that our poverty was caused " not so much by Government extravagance " as by our trade with South Australia " where about £50,000 a year good money " went for flour and other farm produce. " It was true the Governor was a little " lavish, but all he spent was in the colony, " whereas this £'50,000 a year went clean " away from us, and we never saw a penny " of it again. They agreed to all I said, but " could not support me and risk the good " will of their constituents." I feel bound to say that I have no reco...

THE POISON PEST AND HOW TO DEAL WITH IT. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTEALIAN. SIB.-Having obtained the loan of your issue of the 13th January, I noticed an account of Mr. C. Hamersley's method for the destruction of the poison plant. This is not, however, the first time it has been tried. Should Mr. Ham- ersley's plan answer on the York and Toodyay roads, it will in any part of the colony, as most of the poison is in the clay lands which hold moisture. To the eastward of York or Toodyay, the land being drier, the old poison bush is killed by burning early in the season j the young plants however require constant watching and pulling. When I first saw the poison killed by fire I was very much surprised, and carefully ex- amined acres of it; but, not being satisfied, 11 went to my own run some twenty miles off, and having burned some, early in the season, I found it died. Every advantage should be taken of dry seasons, as during such it can be got rid of at less trouble and expense, ...

AN EXPOSUEE. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-Tour contemporary the Inquirer flatly denies the charge of piracy made against it in your columns with regard to the report of the speeches delivered at the late political meeting in the Town Hall.

Anticipating that the Inquirer would re- sort to its old trick of dishing up its report, i of public speeches from reports which had I already appeared in the columns of another journal, 1 deliberately laid a trap for trip- ping your contemporary in the event of his jioaching upon the preserves of the West Australian. The trap answered admirably. I need hardly say tbatthere are few public speakers whose remarks when being trai. scribed for publication require no alteration. A loose or involved style on the part of a speaker occasionally .renders the task of d...
