THE INDIAN AND COLONIAL EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE INDIAN AND COLONIAL EXHIBITION. » THE Colonies and India says:-"The work of preparing the Colonial Courts for the next Exhibition is proceeding satis- factorily, and the several Agents-General^ and those concerned in making every- thing " neat and spruce," have been very buBy in connection with tho arrangements, while Sir P. Cunliffe Owen has been ever at hand with advice and assistance when needed. In exhibition matters he is, of coarse, an expert of no ordinary calibre, since, perhaps, he has had more experi- ence of exhibitions than any mau living. Quick to see, everything he has put his hand to in this connection has turned out to be a success. As everyone knows, tho Exhibition will be purely Colonial and. Indian, and nothing of British manufac- ture, save the nails and the paint and. some of tincases, perhaps, will be seen there. But possibly everyone does not know that there are very many manufac- turers here who would give a high price I per foot of space, if only it coul...

SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

SOUTH AFRICA. A_ WE have referred elsewhere to Mr. Arnold White interviewed by the Pall Mall Gazette. On the same occasion on being asked whether Sir Hercules Robinson was popular at the Gape, he replied :-> As the Governor of a Colony he is everywhere respected. But the Gover- nor of a Colony, remember, is in a diffi- cult position. He cannot well defend himself if attacked, and from what I know of Sir Hercules he is too proud a man to stoop to vicarious defence ia the public press. He is knowu to possess greater experience than any Governor of a Crown Colony now in the service of the Govern- ment. Ton ask me about General War- ren. He has the keenest instinct and sympathy for justice. He may or may not during his recent command have been mistaken in details, but on this 1 have no opinion. The Soers learned to trust his sense of honour and justice. Whereas the incentive to General Warren, his Staff, and the officers, was to fight, they have returned to dis- cover that no bloodsh...

OUGHT LORD SALISBURY TO RESIGN? [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

OUGHT LORD SALISBURY TO RESIGN? The Standard asserts that Mr. Glad stone cannot form a Btrong or stable Government ; nor, as far as plain people can see, would any other of the statesmen who have hitherto been associated with him have the remotest chance of doing so. That brings ns to the question, Ought Lord Salisbury, recognising the fact that be will not command a Conservative ma- jority, to resign? Or ought he not rather to meet Parliament and to conduct affairs until he is defeated on a vital question P The Standard is clearly of opinion that he ought not to resign P The issue of the polling is unsatisfactory, no doubt. A distinct Conservative victory would have strengthened the hands of the Prime Minister immeasurably in overcoming the many dangers that beset our interests abroad. But there is no Constitutional indication that the present Cabinet will be incapable of conducting the business of the country in the new House of Commons. The motley char- acter of what is called th...

HEROISM OF GENERAL GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

HEROISM OF GENERAL GRANT. THE following is the account in his own words of a deed of bravery performed by General Grant when a young man at the storming of Monterey, during the Mexican war. The extract is from the General's lately published memoirs :-" Twiggs's division was at the lower end of the city, and well covered from the fire of the enemy. But the streets leading to the plaza-all Spsnish and Spanish-American towns have near their centres a square called a plaza-were commanded from all directions by artillery. The houses were flat-roofed and but one or two stories high, and about the plaza the roofs were manned with infantry, the troops being protected from our fire by parapets made of sandbags. All advances into the city were thus attended with much danger. While moving atone: streets which did not lead to the plaza, our men were protected from the fire, and from the .view of the enemy except at the crossings; hut at theBe a volley of musketry and a discharge of grapeshot we...

Mark Twain on Baby Discipline and His Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

Mark Twain on Baby Discipline and His Wife. The question raised by a letter in a reoent issue of Babyhood, "What Ought John Senior to Haye Dono P" h&B proved one of the most prolific topiss of discussion which have lately run through the Press. One of the letters brought out on the subject is the following written by Mark Twain to the Christian Union'. " I have just finished reading the admir- ably told tale entitled < What Ought He to Hare Done ?' and I wish to take a chance at that question myself before I oooVtoff. What a happy literary gift that mother has-and yet, with all her brains, she manifestly I thinks there ÍB a difficult coundrum conceal- ed in that -question of hers. It makes a body's blood boil to read her story !

'OUIDA' AND MR. JOS. CHAMBERLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

'OVIDA' AND MR. JOS. CHAM- BERLAIN. I ' Onida' baa addressed the following me- morandum to the Times on the subject of the statements of Mr. Jos. Chamberlain re- specting peasant proprietorship as it operates on the continent : " The elections will be in great part over -before these lines can reach you, yet I can- not help drawing your attention to the state- ment concerning Continental peasantries put forward by Mr. Joseph Chamberlain in his speech of the 16th of November at Evesham. Some unwelcome informant had, it seems, revealed to him unpleasant facts concerning the grovelling and stationary penury and hopelessness in which the pea ant proprietors of Franoe do for the most part live. Instead of meeting this perfectly true statement by any reasonable arguments, he avoids it alto- gether by Baying that it may be so, yet that we may go across the whole b eadth of j Europe, north, south, east, and west, and ! never find a peasant on the Continent who would consent to change places...

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CUREENT. FRIDAY, January 22, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. \ -*- ! PEBTH WHOLESALE PRICES CUßEENT. FEIDAT, January 22,1886. Transactions on a rather larger scale are reported to us, and the tendency of prices seems at present upwards. Farmers seem satisfied with the prioes offered for their produce, and considerable sales hare been effected. Both produce and import lineB are still kept short, and we hear of great firmness in quotations consequent on the lowness of stocks. The Scarborough land sale was by no meauB a success, in spite of the exertions that were made to attract attention to it. All those within the magic ring of "land jobbers" consider that the last land excite- ment is completely defunct, and that prioes now obtainable are at least thirty per cent, below those obtainable three months ago. Many blocks of land, for which high prices were realised during 1885, have now to be paid for by reason of acceptances falling due. The banks are sdid to look with reluctance upon further applications for advances, ...

THE LIBERAL DEFEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE LIBERA L DEFEATS. ^ TUE Liberal defeat« ia toe botoughsy says an English journal, are not due to* any one cause, but to a variety of influences. lu Lancashire und- ia other places ia the north the Irish vote' ., aud the Fair trade cry have won the Con servatives many seats. lu London the Conservative successes have been largely owing to the Church cry and the foreign . policy of the late Government, though ;ih" the East End boroughs the Fair* trade ' agitation hos also done them good. I be- lieve, however, that the great reason of the Tory victories hos been the better and. more active organisation. Their candid* ates have had hosts of volunteer canvass- ers, and not au effort hos been spared to 1 get at the voters, both new and old; - The' Primrose League has also proved a great; political power.

THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE ABORIGINES. A Pall Matt Gazette reporter lately -interviewed the well-known Afr. Arnold .. White, just returned from South Africa "1 suppose," he said, "the Aborigines Protection Society is doings great work in South Africa Î" Mr. White laughed »sar« donic laugh. "I have certainly little or no experience, but it is a fact that the - Aborigines Protection Society has done more to weaken the ties between Cape Colony and the Mother Country than any ether body,-civil or military. In California stock thefts were put down by judicious but merciful severity. In ¡South Africa stock thefts exist on so large a scale that the welfare of English and Dutch farmers has alike been ser* iously impaired. Why Î Because of the absence of legislation. Laws would be passed but for the fear of English public opinion manufactured by the Aborigines Protection Society. For the life of me, I cannot see why the black man should rob the white man with impunity.''

MECHANIC'S INSTITUTE OR PUBLIC LIBRARY? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

MECHANIC'S INSTITUTE OR PUB- LIC LIBRAKf ? To THIS EDITOB. SIR,-Being a new arrival in tho colony -having been here for only two or three months-I am in a position to speak with feeling on what i consider au important matter. When I reached the fair city of Perth, I admired ns situation and for a week disported myself down at the Recre- ation Ground, in wandering to the top of Mount Eliza to enjoy a view of the delight- ful landscape to be seen from it or in walk- ing along the Mount road. But at last, I felt that this could not last for ever and I looked about for a means of recreation that did uot require so much exertion after my day'B work was over. I fouud, however, to my dismay that there was nothing to be done, beyond looking into a publichouse for a chat, or sitting in the hot aud stuffy little room at the Mechanic's that serves aß a reading room. As night after night 1 looked about for entertainment and found none, I grew sick of Perth and felt that 1 would like to follow t...

HOW TO PLAY LAWN TENNIS. [FROM THE SYDNEY MAIL.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

HOW TO PLAY- LAWN" . j FBOM THE SYDNEY MAXI..j W« propose to give a few hints with regard to play. Before commencing, I however, we wish to point out thit our remarks will be addressed not to begin- ners, but to players who have had some experience of the game. To beginners, the best advice we eau give'is to watch the play of ihe best players they have the opportunity of seeing, and when playing to content themselves at first with simply returning the ball, until they have attain- ed a fair amount of certainty in so doing. Then, aud not till then, let them attempt to play the strokes they see good players play, remembering that an opponent who persistently returns the ball, although none of his strokes may be severe, is always more to be feared than an oppo- nent who plays a flashy game, sometimes playing very good strokes, but more often missing very easy ones. Previous to tossing for choice of courts, the player should consider whether either side has a decided advantage, owing to...

MR. BRADLAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

MR. BRADLAUGH. MB. Bradlaugh, M.Jt\, addressing a large audience at tho Hall of Science, Old street, City-road, early last month said that he proposed to introduce a measure with the object of imposing upon every landowner the duty of cultivating his land to the best of his reasonable ability. In his opinion any ra an who possessed land capable of cultivation with profit, and who failed so to cultivate it or who did not utilize it for any purpose ot public or reasonable private enjoyment, should be held to be guilty of a misdemeanour. "When they found land which admitted of profitable cultivation thrown out of cul- tivation either for the purpose of game or luxury this should be made a misdemean- our. About 32,000,000 acres of lands in the United Kingdom were not cultivated, and how much of this could be cultivated with profit experiment alone could show. The punishment to be imposed for the misdemeanour which he would create would be the expropriation by the State of; the brad, pay...

After- j wards I considered that this manner of expressing the truth publicly had better not have been employed, and I stated this from a written paper as my apology at a great Church sad State defence meeting at Taunton. . . It is beyond all reason- able and religious question that Mr. Gladstone is not doing the work of God. I have known this very many years.
