THE Äst ^ttßtraüan. ViGHANS et Audax. PERTH, TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 1880. OUR LANDS NORTH OF THE DE GREY. On the 22nd of August last, the following resolution, moved by Mr. T. C.

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 April 1880

Occasional Notes LOCAL AND GENERAL. Our new Chief Justice is evidently deter- mined that those who lead an honest and in- dustrious life shall be protected to the full extent of the law against the depredations of the criminal class. His Honor led some of the offenders convicted at the late sessions to understand this very plainly. Addressing one of these gentry, convicted of housebreaking at Perth, a man named McNamara, the Chief   Justice said : " It must go forth to the public that these crimes will be dealt with rigorous- ly. A community like this, that is industri- ous, hard-working, and, I hope, thrifty, must not be exposed to the depredations of persons of your class. If men will not work and lead an honest life-which everyone in this colony may do if he likes-but prefer to commit felonies and other crimes against society, they must be punished. I was going to give you five years penal servitude, but the jury who have had you in charge have recommended you to mer...

Law Intelligence Supreme Court- Civil Sittings. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14. [Before His Honor Chief Justice Wrenford- eley.} Bell v. Gibblett. An action of ejectment. Mr. Burt appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. S. H. Parker for the defendant.

OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 April 1880

OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS. No. III. The remarks I made iu my last upon the con- dition of the lands in these districts, were made, more particularly, from the grazier's point of view. I now propose to consider the agricultu- ral position and capabilities of the York and Toodyay districts, and I will begin with the axiom that there Í3 in those districts a very considerable amount of good agricultural soil which might be yielding its 12 or 14 bushels per acre instead of morely supporting, as now, its heavy burden of trees and saplings. This, then ia the question before landholders, before the Government, before the country-"Is this land worth cultivating ? and if it is, is it to be culti- vated?" IE ibis question is answered in the arfirmatire, the sooner steps are taken to bring it into the cultivated state tho better it will be both in the interest of proprietors and of the general public If we ask the farmer why he does not culti- vate more land, he tells us that it does not pay becaus...

A LADY'S LETTER FROM LONDON. March 9. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 April 1880

A LADTS LETTER FROM LONDON. March 9. We have actually had another fog to-day, after having been free from this nuisance for more than a month, so that we wire beginning to express our hopes with confidence, that we should have no more of them until November next. During my long life I never remember auch terrible fogs as those with which we were ?visited in December and January last. I will tell you our experiences on Christmas day, as they may be rather a novelty to the young inhabitants of your colony. It has been an old established custom in our family that we should go to a particular church to receive the Holy Communion together on Christmas morn- ing. So we all started as usual for this church, which Í8 three and a half miles away from my home. As we progressed, the darkness seemed to increase, but still we could see where we were going, and our coachman had no difficulty in steering the horses aright. However, on arriving at our destination, we thought it safer to tell him no...

WHY HOME-MADE FLOUR IS INFERIOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

WHY HOME-MADE FLOUR IS INFERIOR ? I To THs Editob or the Wasr Austbalian. Sib.-In answering " H's " letter in the \ West Australian of 14th, I am not going to de- fend millers generally ; but I can answer for myself that I do thoroughly clean all wheat ground at my mill. Where the fault princi- pally lies is-the local miller, so long as he con- tinues to grind for the public, cannot please himself, but has to return to his customers a certain quantity of flour, bran, and pollard, per bushel of wheat, and therefore has to make such a sample of flour as will return that quantity. There is little doubt that flour quite equal in fineness to the imported article could be produced by millers here, if their customers would consent to receive a less proportion of flour of whiter quality ; and more bran, otc. I am, etc., T. W. OAKLEY. Port Mill, Fremantle, April 20th, 1880.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. To the Editor oi the West Aüstbauan. mL._ ¡sib,-¿ne announcement made in your col- aras last week that the Executive bad thought fit to exercise the prerogative of mercy in refer- ence to the condemned criminal Thompson, sentenced to death at the late sittings of the Supreme Court, will not have been received with surprise, nor do I imagine that it will be generally disapproved. I think the time is not far distant when measures will be adopted which will answer the purpose of general protection for limb and life, just as well and far better than the ghastly hanging of criminals, which, after all, is nothiug more or less than the taking of a life of a human being. It remains a great ques- tion if human justice is justified to do so, how- ever depraved this being may be. I am not aware that any outside pressure was brought to bear upon the Executive in Thomp- son's case, but great exertions are sometimes made by the public to induce those with whom lie the prerogat...

Ut$xu$\u |to. f Associated Pkess.] London, April 17. It is reported that another attempt has been made upon the life of the Czar, by poison, but the attempt failed. The Pall Mall Gazette, on Victorian politics, states that a long uphill struggle had to be main- tained by the Opposition before gaining the vic- tory, which should encourage tho vanquished party. It pronounces the Service Ministry equally as liberal as Berry's was, but less noisy and mercenary. The ex-Empress Eugenie arrived at the Cape on April 14. Constantinople, April 17.

CUBE FOE BUST IN WHEAT. To the Editob or the West Australian. Sib.-The enclosed receipt for rust in wheat was given to.me .by the Hon. James Henty of Melbourne. As it may be of some use to the farmers of Western Australia, perhaps you will give it publication in your paper. Yours faithfully, W. PADBURY. Perth, April 21st. " Rust in wheat may be prevented by drench- ing' the seed corn with a solution of carbolic acid. For four bushels of wheat take four ounces of Calvert*s No. 5 Acid ; add to it two gallons of water ; place the wheat on a sheet of tarpaulin, and water with a watering pot, using the above solution ; thoroughly turn over with a shovel and sow next morning."

MOUNT WITTENOOM POLICE STATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

MOUNT WITTENOOM POLICE STATION. To'thb Editob of the Wbst Atjstbalian. See,-In your issue of April 16th appeared a letter headed-"Who is to blame?" and signed ' Geraldtonian,' which refers to the police station lately built and settled at Mount Wittenoom I was pleased to read your foot- note, which contains some of the real facts of the case. As to the position not being central, a glance at the maps of the country, or a knowledge of the whereabouts of all the set- tlers in the district, would at once show that no better position could be selected. The " elaborate police station," for which tenders were called some time ago, would cer- tainly have been a great waste of public mo- ney, as it was proposed to build it of the mate- rials goneraUy used in tho centres of civilisa- tion ; but the present one is built in the simp- lest, strongest, and most economical way possible, and is in every respect suited to the , present requirements of the district.

Jkmsiupùtm. y HOME GBOWN v. FOREIGN. To THX Editob or thb Wx'bt Australian. Sib.-In your issue of Friday last I observ- ed a letter signed ' H/ referring to the preju- dice against home-grown flour exhibited by the bakers and public in general, and I think it is a matter of great importance to discover how muoh of this is prejudice only, and what the actual difference is between the home gaown and the foreign article. In our Nor'-West settlements, Adelaide flour is much preferred--so much so that some people will specifically order it; but it is not, I think, that a pound of it will go further, but that it keeps far better. Home-grown flour is at- tacked more readily by weavil, and soon be- come alive with the.black-headed flour-grub, and the whole flour becomes tainted with a most disagreeable odour, which cooking rather intensifies. That there is something in the milling which j causes the difference, I am inclined to believe from a conversation I had with a miller on this subject...
