'A- requisition is going the rounds of our town inviting Mr..De lidmel to ad dress the inhabitants in the Mechanics' Institute on Political subjects ??'But the right thinking part of the community have decided that no such insult to our member be tolerated, and no speech be heard.' . Mr. Editor, T was not aware we «-^ had any such person as- this- in our W midst. Who is this Political prodigy ? Who is this gentleman that stands forth as- the: judge of right; minded ness in. Political matters ?? ;the very fact of ?him posing himself as' such proves to any sensible man that if he is- possessed of any mind at all itmunt be what is called' a very narrow one indeed. -. As to the meeting being an insult to Sir John Forrest, no person intended it as such, and if I am not mistaken no one will regret such an effort as this to ? gag the...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 October 1892
?TO THK~ EDITOR.- ? f . .SfRj-^-Tlie hot season will soon bo here, and the usual worrying ques» tions are beginning to tbrriient the Pater Familiar. 'Where can we go for fi week or . two ?' 'Where can we send our families to escape the heat- of Perth, and catch a erlimpse of the sea?' Do you not think that this is a good time to expatiate n little on the natural beauties and health-giving properties of your town? Is not tins a proper time for your City Council to consult, and see if anything can be done to make Bun bury more . attractive,- or more healthy, even' tlian it is ? At least its' attractions can be advertised. In Bunbury yon have delightful walks, the causeway, always coolh' pleasant, on a hot and weary day,, drives through the' 'Dardanup lanes, and chances for the angler, or the one who wishes to ensnare ? the festive crab. . Surely Bunbury is the haven we Perth people want to hear of, the place where we can enjoy a summer's holiday. I have no doubt at all of the future b...
THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 October 1892
THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12,1892. The decision of the Government in respect to the site selected for the Bunbury Railway Station, cannot fail to meet with the unanimous approval of the town. From the point of convenience there was little to choose between the alter- nate routes considered by the Go- vernment as most suitable. The position chosen - the lagoon — has however, the advantage of being at present — and probably for some time to come will remain — the most central spot that could have been selected, whilst the work of recla- mation preliminary to the erection of the buildings maybe regarded, as the initial step in a most impor- tant undertaking, absolutely in- dispensable alike to the health and prosperity of the town, and to the permanence and early suc cess of our railway traffic. In the opening stages of our railway en- terprise we cannot look for the full fruition of its advantages from that remunerative support that will naturally — but very gradually — a...

THE HON. H. W. VENN AT DARDANUP. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 19 October 1892
TEE EON. E. W. VENN AT : DARDANUP. The- -Hon. H. W. Verm, Commis sioner of Hail ways and member for the Wellington district, addressed his constituents on Monday last, Octobor 17th, in the schoolroom, at Daxdanup, where a sumptuous luncheon was pre pared in his lion or. The room waa too small to accommodate the as sembly, and although the tables could seat between 50 and 60 people, a relay v,ra3 required forf ully 30 move. The manner in which the tables were laid but with, every delicacy was most inviting, and the Bunbury visit ors, of whom tliero were about 20, were rather astonished, as well as delighted, at the splendid luncheon spread before them. Great credit is due to the ladies of Dardanup, and to Mr. Maguire and liis assistants for their efforts, which, were deservedly crowned with success. Some of the Bunbury visitors were heard to re mark that Bunlrary would have to look to its laurels in getting up enter tainments in future. The Cbair was taken by J. Forster Johnston, Esq...
