ON BOARD THE 'SEA RIPPLE' AT SEA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 March 1880

ON BOARD THE ' SEA RIPPLE' AT SEA. To the Editor op the Weet Australian. Sir,-I have been thinking a great deal lately about your beautifully situated city of Perth and the little it requires to make it a perfect place of residence, for pleasure and busi- ness combined. At present I consider it, as the capital of the eolony, very much behind the times ; but, as there is no real cause why it should remain so, I propose humbly to give you the views of a stranger for what they are worth, and to point out how certain improve- ments might be brought about and poid for. finance.-In the first place, as no man can grumble when the taxes of a country are under the moderate sum of ¿63 per head, I suggest that a Btanip and probate duty bill should be introduced to the House of Assembly at . the earliest opportunity by one of the leading members of the Legislature, from which source I estimate (should the measure meet with approval) your Government would derive a revenue of, say, not less than ...

GERALDTON ELECTION, (From a correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 March 1880

GERALDTON ELECTION, (from a correspondent.) The proceedings in connection with the election in our town on the 9 th inst., although devoid of any very great excitement, were not without interest. Arguments, hot and strong, for and against Responsible Government were freely indulged in, and these led to Mr. Brown being asked to address the assembled electors and the public generally. This Mr. Brown consented to do, and an improvised rostrum being procured, he proceeded to address Ithe numerous crowd which had assembled to listen to him. Mr. Brown said ; I am glad of this extra opportunity of addressing you, because it en- ables me to set your minds at rest upon several subjects which you have today been discussing with no little warmth. The most important of these, I consider, is Mr. Steere's reported statement that " something must be done to "check the reckless extravagance of the Gov- ernment." I wish you to understand distinctly that I do not know whether Mr. Steere really made t...

FREMANTLE POLICE COURT. THROWING FLOUR ON ELECTION DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 March 1880

FREMANTLE POLICE COURT. Throwing Flour ok Election Day. A striking feature in the Fremantle election was a display of feeling against some Chinamen who were looked upon as representatives of the " Coolies ;" but, strange to say, the only em- ployer of that kind of labour in the district was the candidate professedly opposed to their introduction (Mr E. H. Higham.) Today, Tuesday (Feb. 24) a charge was heard in the police court against three boys, Thoa. Law, George Carter, and Duffield, for throwing Hour and illusing a Chinaman named Ah Ching, aud taking from him a one pound note. The Chinaman gave evidence to the effect that flour had been thrown into his face-that his eyes were so filled with flour that he could not see the offenders, who, not being content with flour-throwing, struck him upon the back with their fists, kicked him, and took a one pound note out of his hand. Mr. R. S. Annear, who witnessed the flour throwing was called, and said : On the day of the election I was lo...

Country Letters. BRIDGETOWN, Feb. 20. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 March 1880

©Mtntrp Jeitos. BRIDGETOWN, Feb. 20. I forward you a few rambling remarks rela- tive to our doings in this almost forgotten part of Western Australia. I often wish I had more time and greater ability, so that I could oc- casionally write to the papers, and expose some of the many abuses that obtain in our colony, as also to ventilate our grievances, and to record that which is more pleasing. Our usually quiet little place has lately been the scene of considerable excitement, our an- nual festivities and the electioneering proceed- ings taking place during the same week. First in point of order came the annual races, which took place on the 11th inst., and which were conducted in a most orderly manner. They attracted a considerable number of racing-lov- ing people ; but, on account of the elections and sundry other meetings taking place in other districts at the same time, the attendance was not nearly so large as last year. On the following day, cricketing and other amusements were ...

Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: [Continued.] August 9th. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 March 1880

éïploratiou. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION i By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. {Continued.] August 9th. We had not travelled more than a mile this morning when we came to a large river, pro- bably Gregory's Stirling Creek. We passed over }t at the top of a fine deep pool at the lx>ttom end of which the natives had made two dains for catching fish. As both fish and game seemed plentiful, we camped here for the day in order to give poor Pierre a little further xest. We were not however very successful cither with the line or with the gun, but our take included two fresh-water turtles, which the sick natives greatly enjoyed. _ There is smoke from many native fires to be seen towards the North, and from the numbers of old camps scattered about, they must be very numerous in this neighbourhood. August 10th. This morning we started early, intending to follow the river down for some little distance, "but were prevented from carrying out our in- tention by the deep...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. TEETH, TUESDAY, MACRH 2, 1880. NIHILISM. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 March 1880

THE Ita %mtxûxm. ViGiLANS et Audax. TEETH, TUESDAY, M ACRE 2, 1880. NIHILISM. It would be no exaggeration to say that Russia has been the history-maker of the last few years. The baneful influence of the great barbaric Power has overshadowed Europe, has clouded Asia, and, directly or indirectly, has been the chief agent in deter- mining the course of events which must, by this time, have satiated the most sensation loving appetite with military horrors and political disturbance. But the most evil of her deeds, and the most weighty in its consequences, that cru- sade (as she called it) of the Cross against the Crescent, by which-while veiling her true motivés under the canting garb of a hypocritical sympathy-she carried carnage, pestilence, famine, and misery into a neigh- bouring land, and, apparently blind to the beam in her own eye, sought to pluck out the mote out of another's-had its origin not so much in ambition, in lust of conquest or of power, as in the necessity she was und...

ACTION FOR WRONGFUL DISMISSAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 March 1880

ACTION FOR WRONGFUL DIS- MISSAL. An action of considerable interest and im- portance to masters and servants was heard at the Local Court, Perth, on Friday last- Thomp- son v. Monger. The plaintiff, a Miss Thompson, who was employed as shopwoman in the defen- dant's store, in Hay Street, sued him for an alleged wrongful dismissal from his service. Damages were laid at £50. Mr. Burt appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. S. H. Parker for the defendant. Mr. Loftie P.M. and Mr. Steere, J.P. were on the bench. From the evidence, which is very voluminous —the case having occupied the attention of the court during two days—it appears that the plaintiff was engaged by the defendant at Ade- laide, in June last, under a special agreement, to act as saleswoman in his shop, at a salary of £10 a month, for a period of two years. She arrived in the colony, under this agreement on the 10th. of June, and immediately thereafter entered upon her duties. In September, the defendant's manager, Mr. Sendey...

LAST NIGHT'S TELEGRAMS. Melbourne, March 4. Mr. Service has been sent for, and is engaged j in forming a Ministry. j New Zealand, March 3. The wheat harvest averaged twenty eight bushels to the acre, leaving one hundred and fifty thousand tons for export. London, March 2. Mr. Forster read a paper before the Society of Arts yesterday, on " Colonisation," in which he attacked the immigration policy of the Aus- tralian colonies and the political success of men of the worst commercial and social character. His remarks aroused a hot discussion. Sir C. Nicholson, Sir R. R. Tori-ens, Mr. Solomans, and others warmly combated the views of the lecturer. The discussion was stopped on the ground that it was of too political a character. In the House of Commons yesterday the Sec- retary of State for War introduced the Army Estimates for the current year, which were passed without opposition. The British India Company's steamer Vin gorla has foundered near the Bombay coast. The chief officer, the...

födqpx$t §ta. [Associated Press.] London, February 26. A meeting of tenant farmers and others was held yesterday, at Portadown, Ulster, for the purpose of discussing the land ques- tion. During the proceedings a band of Orangemen attacked the meeting, when a serious conflict ensued, in which twenty per- sons were injured. Despite the vigilance of the police the Nihilists continue to manifest the most dar- ing activity. From information received, gome fears are entertained of an organised outbreak at St. Petersburg. Some alarm has been cauaed at Constanti- nople by the arrest of a Greek who was found in possession of some bombs. It has not transpired who his accomplices are, bnt it is suspected that he was the instrument of some conspiracy. St. Petersburg, Feb. 26.

COSTLY RAILWAY FENCING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

COSTLY RAILWAY FENCING. To ran Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-No doubt, the Director of Public Works must frequently be much amused if not edified by the various suggestions, improvements, and fault-finding, coming from those who caunot know quite as much of public works and their mode of construction as he, a qualified engineer, must know ; and it is also probable that, so far from making much impres- sion on Mr. Thomas, they go in at one ear and out at the other- that is, when he hears them at all. Nevertheless, though no doubt the cases are rare, yet sometimes by accident an idea does emanate from the unprofessional crowd that may be sometimes worth just a passing atten- tion and examination by even a clever profes- sional man, and I think it is proof that his ability is of the highest order, when he can discern when any remarks or ideas from the vulgar, are exceptional ones, and worthy of a hearing, Any one that takes any interest in such mat ters cannot but have observed t...

Correspondence. MAN'S INHUMANITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

êoxxmpùmtt MAN'S INHUMANITY. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-Some time ago, au enquiry was raised as to the existence of a local .branch of the Royal Humane Society, and I plead guilty to ignorance as to the result of that enquiry. Modern society has agreed that a large class of inhumanities shall be practically ignored as of daily occurrence, and therefore permissible: I re- fer to the privations and barbarities to which the wives and children of drunkards and tipplers are continuously exposed-the "tender mercies" which are indeed "cruel," and yet to which a refined jurisprudence practically delivers up it3 hopeless victims. Or, again, the heartless, piti- less selfishness 'engendered by the same Drink fiend) that co; sumes the means of providing necessary food and clothing for helpless depend- ant women and children, on a night's debauch with "boon companions"-kindly protected (the devourers, mark you, not the home starve- lings !) by the complaisant British gend'arme ;...

A FREMANTLEITE WANTS TO KNOW. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

A FREMANTLEITE WANTS TO KNOW. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-Could you inform nie through the columns, of your valuable journal whether the Sergeant of Police of the District is doing his duty to the public and the service, when he engages himself as a rent collector? I say nothing about the terror inspired by such a man "going his rounds" on such a profit- able duty, and particularly so when applying for rent at a licensed house. The police may make capital mail-men, but they appear in the wrong place, to me, when turned rent collectors. I send you a copy of a recent ceceipt-also my name, not necessarily for publication but as a guarantee of good faith in the matter. FREMANTLEITE. Fremantle, Feb. 17th. [Whether it is desirable that officers in the police force should add to their incomes by undertaking, during their spare time, the duties of collecting moneys on commissions, we really are not prepared to say. But in this particular case, we understand that Ser- geant Wa...

"A.B." IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

A.B." IN REPLY. To the Editor op the West Australian. | Sir,-In a late issue of the West Austra- lian, you published a letter of mine comment- ing upon an article in the Inquirer which dealt with the subject of sanatory reform. I endea- vored to point out the terrible results, the condign punishment which we know must eventually follow the continued violation of those natural laws which regulate the health of a community, and which are so shamefully neglected in our city and larger towns. In referring to the general apathy about sanatory matters, IJ also expressed strong regret that those whose profession it is to teach men their duty to God and to their fellow-men, altogether evaded the consequent obligation of arousing their flocks to a sense of the wickedness of ' treating these laws of God with contempt, and of being reckless of the lives and health of their fellows. I finally ventured upon an opin- ion that sermon-hearing was a burden hard to be borne, and that if sermon-preach...

ALBANY, Feb. 22. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

ALBANY, Feb. 22. We have had the hottest weather lately ever xemembered here, the thermometer reaching over 100 deg. in the shade. This is something quite foreign to Albany experience, and the ¿eat was severely felt. The P. & O. steam ship Indus called here on .her way to Galle last week, but was unable to enter the inner harbour, on account of her .great draught of water. She is one of the finest of the P. & 0. boats, and the largest steamer that has ever visited this place. It is rumoured that the P. & O. do not intend to call in here under the new contract, as they do not receive sufficient subsidy to pay the harbor dues. I do not know whether their new contract will allow them to ignore Albany ; but, if it does, it will be a great disadvantage to the place. Some years ago the P. & O. were solicited to call at Fre- mantle, instead of at Albany, and an offer was made that, if they did so, the harbor dues should be remitted. Now as an inducement for ...

NORTHAM TABLE TALK. "Let it serve for table talk, Then, howso'er thou speakest, among other things, I shall digest it." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

NORTHAM TABLE TALK. *' Let it serve for table tallr, Then, howso'er thou speakest, among other things, I shall digest it." Any excitement that existed regarding elec- tion matters has long since subsided. Mr. Shenton was elected without much demonstra- tion and without any attempt to binding him with pledges. He goe3 in with, I think, the full confidence of his constituents. He is in favor of railway extension j protection,-or, rather, a small import duty on cereals ; liberal land laws ; and retrenchment in Government expenditure. In fact he is ' orthodox' on all but one " burning question"-Responsible Go- vernment ; but seeing that, as a constituency, we are not in favor of the latter, Mr. Shenton may be said to be what his title implies-the representative of the Toodyay electors. The feeUug with regard to the change of Government is not very strong here. All agree as to the necessity for retrenchment and economy and a wise management in the expen- diture of public money. We want a...
