BRIDGETOWN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

BRIDGETOWN NOTES. We were favoured by a visit from the Commissioner of Railways last Friday He arrived in the evening from Bunbury, accompanied by Mr. Godfrey Knight and left on Saturday morning for Jayes, "thence to Albany via Yerreminupto meet Mr. Chsesewright. As Mr. Wright's visit was quite unexpected, the settlers .were very much disappointed atnot having thjTopportnnity of suitably entertaining him, as they had agreed to do it due notice of the visit had been given. In the absence of Mr. Steere, the President of our Agricultural Society, the Secretary, Mr. A Knox Brown, of Brooklands, was here to meec the Oommission ?er, and shewed him over our township, and gave as much information as he coulure the Bunbury and Blackwood railway. It was evidently the opinion of. Mr. Wright that a railway would not be made nearer to Bridgetown than Jayes, or rather that the apparently most leve 1 line for a railway was up the Freston, thence acrosB to the Blackwood, some .where near Jayes, the...

A NEW MEXICO FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

A NEW MEXICO FAIR. " Look out there !" " Hit him !" « Stand back!" A chorus of cries and yells, a rush of frightened men, women, and children, greasers and soldiers, and a small but vicious ¿roncho dashed madly into the large building -devoted to the annual Territorial Fair at v4äka5menroe' Everybody made a rush for CR wall as the runaway animal tore down the narrow lane formed of fruits, minérale, and varions goods illustrating the natural resource of the country, and by the time he was half way down the building it was nearly .empty. The heat was a short one, as close after the animal came two cow-boys, also on ? " sa dead run, who, regardless of the surround- ings, were whirling their rope lariats, and hy the time the broncho had reached the end <of the hall he was secured by the twain and * brought to with a round turn in the midst of . fashion bazaar. The crowd now returned, and their shouts and cheers greeted the cow- boys who had so skilfully captured the run- away...

THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. WHEN our grandchildren learn the his- tory of Australia the 25th of January, 1886, will be one of the^ates most care- fully impressed upon their minds, as the day when was bora a Federal authority, which, developing gradually, will, in their time, hare-consolidated the Aus« tralias into a mighty nation. It is curi- ous how little public interest has been taken throughout these colonies in the event of yesterday and the movement which led up to it. It is curious, indeed, we might add, to note how much «old water has been positively throws upon it, how much direct opposition it has met with. And yet who would venture to deny that from the little Federal Council opened in Hobart yesterday will spring the Great Australian Federal Parliament of the future, when these colonies shell no longer be isolated provinces, with ^ politics more or less of the vestry meeting type and politicians more or less to correspond, provincial jealousies exercising contract ing influence...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

IEE NORTHERN TERRITORY. ? . AFFAIRS in the South Australian North- ern Territory appear to be in a by no means very flourishing' condition judging by the following telegram received by the Adelaide Government from the Resident at Fort Darwin:-"I am requested to forward the following resolutions passed at a meeting held last evening :-' 1. That this meeting views the negligence of the : Government with serions apprehension in ' not carrying on the public works of tlris the Northern Territory portion of the colony, which are so necessary for its ad- vancement, and would ba a relief to the commercial interests and the labouring men. 2. That in consequence of the very great depression now existing in Palmer- ston, and the serious effect of the same on the population of the Northern Territory,' this meeting considers it desirable to urge the necessity of proceeding with a~Bmall section of the railway line immediately, with a view of giving work to the unem- ployed; say a distance of 10 m...

MURDER AND OUTRAGE IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

MURDER AND OUTRAGE IN IRELAND. ? ? » E MUBO EB and outrage are said to be still io. ¡ in full swing in some parts of Ireland. One of the latest has just been committed with» in a short distance of the town of Kil- larney, the victim being a man named Patrick Bahilly, who was carrying on an. evicted farm for Mr. John Leahy, at Knochsarknett. The unfortunate mau was evidently beaten to death with sticks, as two or three cudgels with blood stains were found on the road near the place where he was murdered. Mr; Hilliard, a shopkeeper in Killarney, was the first person to discover the man as he was driving along the road. Bahilly was quite insensible, and appeared to be dying. Doctors were sent fer without delay, but before they arrived the man was quite dead. A post mortem examination show- ed that Bahilly's skull was fractured in three places, and there were cuts on th» face which were evidently inflicted with knives. The police at once scoured the neighbourhood; bat up to the present ...

PAINFUL POSITION OF THE QUEEN OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

PAINFUL POSITION OF THE QUEEN OF SPAIN. -* TUB accouchement of the Spanish Queen., is expected to take place at the end of April next, says an English journal, and if the offspring should be a boy the Regency would be held for him. The - birth of a male heir to the throne would < perhaps strengthen the chances of the present dynasty, though it is fruitless to - speculate on what may happen in «, '?, country like Spain, and among a people* - so unstable as the Spanish race. Under any circumstances the position of the- . Queen cannot help but be a difficult one, ;' . j and to her is peculiarly trying. She is a»1' - quiet, retiring woman, to whom the cere mouial of court life was always un wei-v ] come, and for whom politics liave no in- terest whatever. She waa never so happy as when a simple grand duchess, living" with her mother, or making long visits to her uncle, the Grand Duke Albrecht*;'-;?3 whose favourite she was. With domestic: virtues of the highest kind, it canno...

THE REVENUE RETURNS. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

THE REVENUE RETURNS. FEOM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN SOMEWHAT, or to speak more truly, most unreasonably late in the day, the Quarterly Returns of Revenue and Expenditure bave been published in the Gasetie. lt is the more regret- table as the tale it has to tell is one which may be read with almost unal- loyed satisfaction. The figures show even more decidedly in our favour, than was predicted, or probably even imagined by the most sanguine of our financial prophets. Mr. FBASEB iu his Budget speech last September, estimated the revenue for the year 1885 at .£295,666, though he admitted his belief that this erred on the side of caution. A week later Mr. MARMION calculated that we might fairly expect to receive .¡£306,625. The actual amount paid into the Treasury turns out to be ,£323,213, that is £27,547 better than the Colonial Secretary's estimate, and £10,5*8 better than Mr. Marmion's. .£27,547, or nearly ten per cent., is certainly a large difference between an official estimate and the...

MR. DAVIES' CONCESSION. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

ME. DAVIES' CONCESSION. ? I FROM TBE WEBT AU6TBALIAN ON Friday last we published one amongst several communications which Thursday's Southern mail brought us, iu addition to those we had previously received, on the subject of the grievances of the Augusta settlers caused by the very rash agree» ment entered into by Sir WILLIAM ROBINSON with Mr. M. C. DAVIES, of the Hamelin and Augusta timber works. So much feeling seems to have been aroused about the matter-and very naturally too^-that it, may be desirable we should add a few words to the comments upon it which we have already , made. Some of our correspondents go so far as to say that the settlers with- in the timber reserve are to be ruined for the sake of an exploitation which is simply denuding us of a sourco of wealth, while giving us nothing what« ever ia return. This is a strong way of stating the case, and one which can scarcely be maintained, for we sus- pect that were the timber business at Augusta and the Hamelin closed, ...

DARING ATTEMPT TO ROB A BANK. A WOMAN SHOT DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

DABING ATTEMPT TO ROB A BANK. A WOMAtf SHOT DEAD. One of the most daring attempts te rob a bank that we have had occasion to chronicle, occurred on Tuesday forenoon in the city of Collingwood. The Com- mençai Bank, as is well known, has a branch establishment in South-street, but the extension of that suburb has been so I rapid, and the population in its most out- lying parts has increased to such an ex- tent, that Smith-street is regarded as inconvenient by those, who .reside in the outskirts, and are obliged to have recourse to that busy thoroughfare for the trans- action of banking business. Regarding : the matter in that light, some of the cus- tomers of the Commercial Bank complain- ed of the inconvenience they were put to, and ¿he bank authorities, recognising the force of these complaints, decided to establish a sub-agency in some other por- tion of the city. With this object in view, the bank entered into an agreement with Mrs. Ravenscroft for the lease of a por ¡ tion of he...

Their plan was to maintain i rigid silence until after Mr. Service au<i Mr. Berry had returned from Hobart, where they will represent the colony ai the first Federal Council. The changue would then have been notified, aud Mr. Gillies, upon whom tho Premiership Í6 to devolve, would then have sought new colleagues.
