THE GLADSTONE MINISTRY. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

THE GL&DSTONE MINISTRY. [SttOM TEE WEBT A.U8TBA.I.1ÀÏÏ.) THE new English Ministry may be looked upon as complete. All the important offices have been filled up, and it is now possible to form some forecast of the line which will probably be adopted, and of the probabilities of Mr. GLADSTONE being able to carry into effect the astounding declarations of policy with- which he has literally set the ears of all Englishmen tingling. The new Ministry is very far from being a mere right-about face of the Cabinet who followed Mr. GLADSTONE into opposition some eight months ago. The new additions are remark- able, but far more important are the abstentions from office. Of the former, are particularly to be noted j Mr. JOH» MOSLEY and Mr. JESSE. COLLINGS. These, indeed, are the only nantes of much significance amongst the new accessions. Mr, COLLINGS has been now for some years a recognised leader of _ the extrome radical wing, and especially identified with the working men's interest...

THE NEW OCEAN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

THE NEW OCEAN MAIL SERVICE. -c- ^ j THE Argus says:-"The Postmaster! General has been informed by the South Australian Government that the West Australian authorities are willing to be- come parties to the new ocean mail service to be established in 1888. It was the desire of the Imperial Government that the colonies of West Australia, Tasmania, and Queensland' should co-operate with New South Wales, Victoria, and Sooth Australia with respect to the contract, it being urged that if the whole of these í colonies united in regard to it, the amount of the tenders for the service would be considerably lower than if only New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia par- ticipated in it. So far, however, West Australia is the only colony that has re- sponded to the advances made to secure the co-operation of the colonies mentioned.

THE PERTH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

TSE PERTH PRESBYTERIAN CRUROR. j As wo had previously intimated would be the case, on Sunday evening last the Presbyterian Church, Perth, was illumin- ated with gas. This is the first Church in Western Australia thus lighted, but other Churches will probably soon follow the example set by the Presbyterians and ; adopt this superior means of illumination now that the gas mains pass all their doors. The interior of the Presbyterian Church is lighted by two splendid sun or circular lights, fixed on the beams of the roof. Each light contains twelve burn- ers and is furnished with a reflector of neat design. lu addition to the above are four very light and handsome bracket burners furnished with globes and fixed on the lobby screen. The exterior of the building is brightly lighted by two street lamps of the same class as those the Gas" Company are now electing in the streets of Perth, the only difference being that the former aro cut shorter to suit the re- quirements of the spot. These ...

The performers consisted of I Mesdames Onslow and Hensman, Messrs. ! Onslow, Hensman, Clifton, Brooking, and Pether, Mrs. Barnes herself and some of her young lady pupils. The Concert opened with Abt's pretty part song, " The Music of the Bells," performed by the pupils with care, precision and excel- lent effect. Miss F. Lefroy in " Kil- larney " showed herself the possessor of a inost pleasing voice, but her extreme nervousness told greatly agaiust her use of it.

COBURG TRAGSDY. THE following confession was made by one of the Hampton sisters concerned in the late Coburg, tragedy :-" For some time past we hare been under the influ- ence of a secret society, which has en- deavoured to get us to go to the bad. We felt that we were being much infhi encod and that we had no option. At last we prayed that we might be deliver- ed from the influence. One night we were talking about it with mother, and she asked us if we, rather than do wrong, would prefer to die. We decided to die, and yesterday evening we went into the front room and took the little girl with ns,« so as to prevent her being brought under the influence. When we got into the front room we thought the matter over and then knelt dowu and prayed. And as we prayed we felt that the Bpirit was gently leaving us.

He had shoved the broom at the boy, when the head came off sud struck him.

Travelling Targets. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

Travelling Targets. Among the advantages which COLONEL ANGELO was able, through the liberality of the Legislature, to congratulate him- self upon having secured for our Volun- teers, was the fact that the majority of them are now armed with the Martini Henry rifle. This being so, we venture to suggest that another stop might be ad- vantageously taken with a view to im- prove onr present system of target prac- tice. We think tho time has arrived when some attention and encouragement should be given to independent firing and practice at vanishing targets aud moviug objects. The old stationary target is tailing into disfavour, and its fate for field practice, except in an elementary way is, to all intents and purposes, souled. It can hardly be entirely done away with, but the moving target has superseded it elsewhere ; and no time should be lost in having these improved systems entered in opposition to that still holding here. Any ordinarily observant spectator of firing competitions u...
