Mr. John Gall, chairman of the District Council of Lacepede, was voted to the chair. Mr. J. W.

WEST AUSTRALIAN GOLDFIELDS. MlSCEIiIiANEOUS. Mr. J. E. Churchward writes:— 'As share holders in the Tom Elliott Troprietary Gold Mining Company, limited, and the public in general, are likely to misconstrue the reading of telegrams sent by me, and received from Mr. Thomas Elliott, I desire to say that I . was in error when I said that Mr. Connell in his report stated that there were four good leases and one bad. What I should have eaid was that there were four prospected claims, and one not sufficiocfcly prospected to justify a definite opinion.'

HOUSE OP ASSEMBLY. - Tuesday. October 15. The upper gallery of the Assembly was com paratively empty when the Speaker took tho chair on Tuesday afternoon, and there was but a solitary stranger in the lower seats.

The Parliament. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
Wm $ arliamenf.. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Tuesday, October 15. It has been a most interesting study to watch the attitude adopted _ by legislative councillors towards the Public Salaries Bill, and although on Tuesday the second reading was carried without a division there is a de lightful amount of uncertainty as to whether the measure will bs passed. It was almost im possible in some instances to predict how a member intended to vote until he had uttered the very last sentence ot his speecli. JVLr. Addisou, who resumed the debate, soon an nounced that he was opposed to the Bill, which he regards as very unfair,' and merely an attempt to patch up our financial difficulties, while Mr. Warren took up a similar position. '1 have stood this IJill twice,' said he, ' but I can't stand it a third time.' In hjs opinion the Civii servant was in something like the same position as the squatter, as he has no iixity of tenure, or at any rate no fixity of salary. In his business affairs Mr. Darling ...

The working capital as a, rule is insufficient, end if the properties are to be tested ? thoroughly it will bo necessary to increase the working capital considerably.

J^rtimlture. GARDENING FOR TEE WEEK. The Plains. Flower Garden. — Many of the choicest climbing shrubs may now be planted from pots if well furnished with roots ; they succeed better planted afr this season thau they do ' when put out in cold weather. Some of the best are bougainvillcas, phaseolus .caracalla, tacsonias, rhvueosnermuma and steohanotus floribuudus. They will, of course, require a liberal supply of water until they are well established and should be planted in deep well-enriched soil to give them a start. Estab lished climbers should be carefully trained as they extend, Unless this is done the plants become a confused mass of shoots growing in all directions, and under these conditions it is iinpossibls to prune them proporly at the right season. Keep the surfaces of all beds and borders stirred at frequent intervals. This may appear a simple thing to do, bub the benefit of it has been proved by all thoroughly practical floriculturists. Cleau off all decaying foliage a...
