THE SCAB ACT, 1885. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

THE SCAB ACT, 1885.     TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-The Scab Act of 1885, contains, to my mind, such glaring inconsistencies, that I cannot refrain from bringing them under your notice, and trust you will be kind enough to give my views publicity. That the framers of the Act. deemed   the disease known as Scab highly infec- tious, and calling for severe measures, is evinced by Clause 12, whereby provision is made for the destruction of infected sheep provided the owner has not, in a given time, succeeded in eradicating the disease.   But in Clause 10 we find a compulsory license, if issued in the months of May or June, shall enure for a period of sixteen weeks-, if issued in July or August, tor twelve weeks ; if in September eight weeks ; if in October, to the 1st December. And any time between the 1st November and 1st May to enure only for six weeks. Clause 9. provides that the owner of infected sheep,-upon giving notice of the infec- tio...

THE CHOLERA IN BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

THE CHOLERA IN BRISBANE.

For cholera of the devast- ating order, almost always originating in tropical countries, has bad one might almost say a permanent home in India, whence it has been propa- gated periodically in a somewhat re- gular geographical course, reaching Western Europe by way of Persia, Rus- sia aud the Baltic on the North and bj way of Egypt; Turkey and Italy ot the South. As we stated, however on a previouB¡occaebn, at times choler! appears in a mysterious fashion, tak ing eccentric leaps, settling in tbe cen tre of a territory before it has touche) the boarders, and defying all caleula tions.

SUPREME COURT. (Before His Honor Mr. Justice Stone and a Common Jury.) FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18. The Court re-assembled at half-past ten. INDECENT ASSAULT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

SUPREME COURT. (Before His Honor Mr. Justice Stone and a   Common Jury.) FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18. The Court re-assembled at half-past ten. INDECENT ASSAULT. JOHN DEVERILL, a young farmer, was charged with having on the 24th November last unlawfully and indecenly assaulted a girl named Susannah Page, at the Williams. Mr. S. H. Parker appeared for the defence. The prosecutrix, a very plain looking girl sixteen years of age, is the daughter of a farmer living at Springfield, near the Wil- liams. On the day of the alleged assault she was out minding a flock of sheep, and, in the afternoon, when she was about to return home, the defendant came up to her. He was acquainted with the young woman, hav- ing known her from her childhood, and he entered into conversation with her, walking along with her as she went home. Suddenly he seized her, and threw her on the ground, and attempted to take liberties with her, but did not accomplish his purpose. The defence was that the girl was as...

An Unprotected Shore. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

Au Unprotected Shore. Is the fortification of our coasts drop- ping into tho limbo of forgotten things P Everyoue will remember that at the time of tho occurrence, by ' common consent, known as " tho Russian war scare," a good Meal of adverse criticism was lav- ished upon those who were unable to re-1 gard a descent made by the enemy upon .the shores of the Australian provinces as 1 an utterly impossible contingency of war. Adverse criticism however notwithstand- i ing, a somewhat similar notion is pre- valent amongst the eminent naval and military authorities of Europe, who con- i cider that in future wars the levying of contributions upon defenceless coast towns would be a material factor in the operations of an enemy. " This," states a recent number of the United Service I Gazette, " though by no means a novel i idea, has obtained little practice in modern wars, owing to the general observance by civilized nations of certain customs known as tho rights of war." But it is I everyw...

Our Lunatics. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

Otu* Lunatics. A 6HOB.T time ago when the statistics of lunacy in ? "Victoria were attracting mach .attention in many parts of that colony, au enterprising representative of the Daily Telegraph interviewed a professional authority of the highest character on the subject. The first part of ihe interview was spent in a complacent review of figures which though dry were not wholly ?devoid of interest. For instance the lunacy rate although decreasing is much higher in Victoria than in England, which, however, was accounted for-^-such things, of course musí be accounted for,-by the fact that many persons wore admitted in- to Victoria Asylums who, if they Were in England would be kept in the bosoms of -their families. New Soufch.

THUBSDAY, .DECEMBER 17. The Court resumed at the usual hour. ' RAPE BY A CHINAMAN. j ~NG-KI SINO, a Chinaman, was arraigned * "upon an indictment charging him with having committed a rape upon one Ada Spencer, on the Canning, on the 6th October last. - Mr. Blandy appeared for the prisoner. Charles Djusong, a Malay, acted as interpre- ter, the prisoner alleging that he did not 'savee' English. - .The Attorney General, m opening the case for the prosecution, said he need hardly Bay that the crime with which the prisoner was charged was a very serious one indeed ; in fact, in this colony it still remained on the ^statute book as a capital offence. But every- where, whether it ranked as « capital offence or no-and in England it did not so rank it was ah offence ot a most heinous descrip- tion. He need hardly remind them that in a .country like this, where women and girls were frequently obliged from nee ' essity to be alone and unprotected, in, Tomóte places in the bush, it was i most e...

The Chief Justice asked if the prisoner was represented hy counsel, and, upon being told that he was not, His Honor said-the offence with which the prisoner waB charged being a capital offence-it was usual here for the Crown to provide persons charged with capital offences with c...

CURIOUS FEATURES OF AMERICAN LIFE. A COWBOY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

CURIOUS FEATURES OF AMERI- CAN LIFE.   A COWBOY STORY. " I have seen a good many daring deeds performed and coarse jokes perpetrated by cowboys," said the agent. "One morning a   travelling mau arrived at the depot by stage. He had a small sample case and satchel, He was below medium height, and rather slight,   but was very neatly dressed, and wore a silk hat. He was travelling for a New York jewellery house. He was about an hour early   for the train east, and he opened his grip on   the platform, took out a brush, and dusted   j his clothing and shoes. He then drew ont ! an old newspaper, leaned up against the side of the dépôt, with one foot projected ia front ! of the other, and began reading. ..Meanwhile, three cowboys had sauntered up to the depot.

Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. "A stern chase is a long chase." THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER I. DR. ROSSLYN'S HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase." THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER I. DR. ROSSLYN'S HOUSEHOLD. Historically regarded, Harley Street is interesting; its actual aspect is, however, that of highly respectable dulness. Twenty years ago, when the external ornamentation of town houses was a novel art, and still re- garded with a shy suspiciousness, which has happily yielded to emulative zeal and a liberal display of flower- boxes, Harley Street was even duller than it is now. More respectable, more professional, it could not be. A complete example of the representa- tive features of Harley Street was to be found, early in the sixties, in the desirable residence of Dr. Rosslyn, a physician in extensive practice among the classes of people of whom the doctor himself was wont to speak with accurately meted respect as "persons   of importance." This was a happy phrase, not so much out of date as "persons of quality," and less of a...

THE MISER'S BEQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

THE MISER'S BEQUEST, The hour-hand of Philip Acre's old- fashioned silver watch was pointing to the figure eight—the snug red curtains shut out the rain and dark- ness of the March night, and the fire snapped and crackled behind the red- hot bars of the little grate, in a most cosy and comfortable sort of way, casting a rosy shine into the thought- ful brown eyes that were tracing castles and coronets in the brightly burning coals. For Philip Acre was, for once, in- dulging himself in the dangerous fascinations of a day-dream. " If I were only rich !" he pondered   to himself. Ah, if! Then good-bye to all these musty old law-books ; good-bye to mended boots, and turned coats, and all the ways and means that turn a man's life into wretched bondage. Wouldn't I revel in new books and delicious paintings, ans high stepping horses? Wouldn't I buy a set of jewels for Edith—not pale pearls, or sickly emeralds, but diamonds, to blaze like links of fire upon her royal throat! Wo...

T. SHADBAKE'S ADVENTURES. ---- Perhaps the annals of blasted hopes and the wreckage of promising enterprises never contained anything sadder than the ex- perience of Thomas Shadbake, who humbly followed in the footsteps of Barnum afar off. He was the owner and proprietor of a poor, but honest, side-show attached to tho great showman's "twenty-five acres of canvas." But hard luck one season got such a grip upon him that it nearly squeezed the life out of him. A. candle set too near the hair of the albino burned it BO badly ^that it looked like a tomato plant after the first ftost. In filling the gasoline lamp the fluid was spilled all over the tattooed man, which made,him as worthless as a Tree with the bark peeled off. The Feejee Islander got a telegram from bis father's solicitor in Ire- - land that the "governor" was dead, and that a fortune was awaiting him in the "ould country," whereupon be washed the paint j off and took the night train for the next ; steamer.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

A NEW WEEKLY JOURNAL, ---- There is a general impression that the time has come when a first class weekly paper, in a form somewhat dif-     ferent from the weeklies now in circu- lation, would prove a success in West- ern Australia. Hitherto the weekly   journals here have been but the Satur- day or Wednesday issues of the dailies. This want of a weekly on a distinct footing, and acceptable to all sections of the population, the Propri- etors of the " WEST AUSTRALIAN " have determined to endeavour to sup- ply, by publishing every Saturday, a new paper to be called " THE WEST- ERN MAIL." The new journal will contain a re- print of so much of the week's news from the " WEST AUSTRALIAN " as may be thought of general interest. In addition it will have Original Ar-   ticles, Notes, and Essays on various subjects, following, indeed, in all re- spects the example of similar weeklies in Eastern Australasia. Great atten- tion will be devot...
