THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, FEB. 20, 1880. THE RESULT OF THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

THE W&t&t ^»síralian. VlGILANS ET AtTDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, FEB. 20, 1880. THE RESULT OF THE ELECTIONS. Now that the elections, for all practical pur- poses, are over-for although there is some talk of a contest at the North, we imagine that the result is a foregone conclusion-it is worth while to shortly review the verdict which the country lias given upon the issue placed before it. "We say placed before it, because, though not directly, indirectly the question of constitutional change was dis- tinctly that upon which the electors had to decide. It was the question upon which every candidate who addressed his consti- tuents mainly dwelt, and the theme of those appeals from the Press, by which so great an effort has lately been made to influence the public mind. The result shows, we think, most clearly, that the great majority of the electore are we would not say strongly opposed to the immediate introduction of Responsible Gov- ernment, but anything rather than strong...

Farm and Station. SALICYLIC ACID. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

Jmw nu Station. SALICYLIC ACID. TO,THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. Sir,-We hear so much now-a-days of the | value of salicylic acid as an anti-ferment, that . itB*useful properties should certainly be made known to the people of this colony. As far as ¡ I am aware, no local newspaper has as yet pub- i lished'any account of the wonderful effects of this useful agent. May I therefore request that you will insert the following extracts from the Queenslander in your next ' Farm aad Station' column. Yours truly H. Feb. 3. For some time past the use of this acid has been extending, and when its wonderful pro- perties as an anti-ferment become more widely known there is little doubt that it will be gener- ally employed. In a hot climate like that of Queensland for several months in the year its value can scarcely lie over-estimated for domestic purposes. To the following perishable articles it is applied in the quantities stated, in Eng- land ; but during the heat of summer in this colo...

PROTECTION TO NATIVE INDUSTRIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

PROTECTION TO NATIVE INDUSTRIES. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIE,-Mr. S. H. Parker and another writer who signs liimself * Economist' are rather hard upon Mr. L. C. Burges for some remarks he made in a late issue of your paper with regard to the importation of flour from Adelaide, and I have no doubt, Sir, that you will agree with me in thinking that the gentleman who signs himself ' Economist' has gone out of his way to make sneering remarks which most people would condemn as questionable in taste. Does he, and does Mr. Parker think, that to pay a steam packet company, as we have done, ¿B6000 a year in order to enable the farmers of South Australia to send flour and grain here at reduced freights for the purpose of undersell- ing the West Australian farmers in their own market, is good political economy ? What is the actual effect of this so-called ' liberal' policy ? The market is so glutted with imported flour and grain that it is almost impossible for our farmers to se...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, FEB. 24, 1880. THE THIN END OF THE WEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

THE Äst ^taratan. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. a THE THIN END OF THE WEDGE. J WE publish today letters from Mr. L. C. BURGES, and from a correspondent who signs ' COMMON SENSE,' in reply to ' ECONO- MIST ' and Mr. S. H. PABKEB. In these letters distinctly protective principles are advocated, and free trade in flour and grain -which until last session was absolute in Western Australia-is condemned as injuri- ous to the agricultural interests of the co- lony. What free trade really means is that na- ture and the natural laws of supply and de- mand should be given fair play, should not be interfered with and artificially directed, but allowed to work unfettered. The theory of free trade is so demonstrably correct that no one ever attempts to dispute it. Special circumstances are invariably pleaded in jus- tification of a surrender of principles which every one acknowledges to be sound. In young and undeveloped colonies this plea is very apt to be made, the ardent desire for progress strongly tem...

"ECONOMIST" AND OUR FARMERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

"ECONOMIST" AND OUE IÄEMEES. To THE EDITOB OF THE "WEST AUSTBALIAN. SIB,-In your last issue my attention has been drawn to a letter signed ' Economist,' asking his country friends how it is they can't supply the city with hams, bacon, and tongues. In the latter we are possessed with too many evil ones ; the former can be supplied sound, smoked, and palatable, if ' Economist ' will guarantee to give one shil- ling and four pence per lb., delivered in the the city. Also, should ' Economist ' acquire a fortune, farmers no doubt will be glad to supply him with as much wheat at the barn door, on the premises, at 4s 6d. per bushel without sacks. This is as cheap as he will get it in South Australia. I have no wish to comment further on ' Economist's' letter at present, but can you inform mc, Mr. Editor, how it is that Mr. Brockman, when writing on the land ques- tion, is so contradictory and incomprehen- sible, as, when he met his constituents at Gingin he was not an advocate for a land t...

Country Letters. TOODYAY, February 16. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

(tattïfl Jeta. iC TOODYAY, February 16. (From our Correspondeiif.) In my letter of the 3rd instant I said that if there had been a bad crop we would have got 6s. 6d. per bushel for our wheat, but as we have a good one we can only get 4s. 6d. Your cor- respondent ' Economist ' says, ' presumably, therefore, it is better for their interest to grow small quantities and get better prices.' He may presume sn, but I have no double-meaning in 1 what I write. It is an old dodge ; I have known it for the last thirty-five years. The cry is ' we cannot afford to give more.' Last year I sold wheat in Guildford at 6s. per bushel, as good as cash ; flour was then ¿614 per ton. This year we are told that they cannot give more than 4s. 6d., and yet flour is the same price. " Economist" says that ' the principle that the cost of production per bushel is largely decreased by an increased area being cultivated seems not to be understood ; given the same yield per acre the cost per bushel to the farmer...

MR. L. C. BURGES IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

ME. L. C. BURGES IN REPLY. To THE EDITOB OP THE WEST AUSTBALIAI*. DEAR SIR,-I should be glad if Mr. Parker i would explain what benefit the colony derives from the timber trade, beyond the employment of a few teams, and the consumption of a little I fresh meat ; for, all other stores used by the timber companies are imported from South Australia. These companies obtained large free grants of land from our Government, which they were allowed to take up and place in the market whenever they liked, greatly to the loss of our annual land revenue. They also hold large tracts of fine timber country, at almost a nominal rent over, which they have the exclusive right to cut and to waste as much timber as they please, allthebenefit accruing to us being the paltry rent to which I have al- luded ; and the result is that we are actually paying them for undertaking the destruction of our magnificent jarrah forests. If only we got so much a load for the timber when shipped, it would be some addit...

Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] July 20. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S, [Continued.] July 20. We made an early start this morning steer- ing E.N.E. through a magnificent and well watered country, little brooks crossing our track at intervals of nearly every mile, till, after travelling fourteen miles, we came to a larger stream upon which we camped for the rest of the day. The whole of the country consisted of granite rises and clear open flats. From the summit of a low range to which Hicks and I walked this afternoon we found spread out before us the most Bplendid grassy plain it haB ever been my lot to see. As far as the eye could reach to the S.S.E. and S.W. was one vast level expanse of magnificent feeding ground, and at our feet a running stream which we could trace far out into the distance. TheBe plains, which are granitic in formation, comprise, according to my calcula- tion, not less than one million of acres, and, judging from the richness of their herbage...

MR. MAITLAND BROWN AT GERALDTON. [Continued from the West Australian of Feb. 20.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

MR. MAITLAND BROWN AT GER- ALDTON. [Continued from the West Australian of Feb. 20.] Mr. BROWN continuing his remarks, said he would now speak of Responsible Government as an economical step. It had not been attempted to prove to the electors that they had a right to expect that Responsible Government could be carried on at a less expense than our present form of Government ; assertion alone had been resorted to. The elected members were told that they had a civil service which is overpaid paid and over-officered, that in this way money had been squandered. This had not been proved to them, and he denied that it was one or the other. The civil service in this colony was underpaid not overpaid, under-officered rather than over-officered. But not so says the Press, or a section of it. There were, thank God, men in the Legislative Council who had not pandered to those who call themselves lead- ers of public opinion, men who dare to come forward and speak independently without fear or fa...
