The Western Mail SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1886. UNSATISFIED EXPECTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

SATÜBDAY, FEBETJABY 13, 1886. UNSATISFIED EXPECTATIONS. AMONG the great influx of étrangers which hare within the lust year or two visited this part of Western Australia, a curious variety of opin- ion shews itself us to the present position of the colony. A philoso- pher who stood wit hilt earshot of t he groups of the newly arrived, as they collect at the Railway Stations, or under the verandah of our not very imposing Post Office, und listens te their conversation with their com- panions of the voyage, or their freshly made friends, would wonder more than ever at the endless diversity ol' temperaments which can manage to see the same object ia so many lights. A number, most of theta lately from England, will express themselves in terms of unlimited satisfaction. Others find but little to urge for or against their new home. But a cer- tain scanty sprinkling chiefly visitors iron the other side, will shake their heads, and murmur words of doubt and declare themselves altogether dis...

The Causes of Larrikinism. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

V The Causes of Larrikinism. A couple of weeks ago in referiug to the iatest phase of larrikinisia exhibited jatnong the young ftLohocks of a neighbour JBulyg colony, it was said that, unhappily, pthere are no doubtful signs that this evil ? exists in more iban the germ in Western Australia. It is worth while enquiriug jfor a möment what «\re the predisposing causes of this hateful phenomenon. What . are thc conditions of colonial society that ..appear favorable to the production of those ill-conditioned boys and still more ill-conditioned girls of whom we from 'time to time hear such tales P The true answer seems very plain, although per- haps not much to our credit. The fault tis our own. It springs from criminal ? carelessness, and distegard of parental duties. Some men are too indolent, others too indifferent, many too self-indulgent, 'to look after their homes. They thiuk that they have fulfilled all their duties if they see thal their children obtain sume rsott of schooling. E...

Criminal Sentences. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

Criminal Sentences. "A Standard of Measurement for Sen- tences in Criminal Cases, and a Reform- ed System of Penal Discipline " is the* . title of a brochvrevrhxoh has recently been penned by Mr. B. Le Poer Trench, Q.<V one of the Chairmen of General Session» in Victoria. Ja it the writer briefly dis- cusses the present system of inflicting punishment for crime. The system of line and imprisonment, in his opinion, sa . far from haring attained its double object of acting as a punishment and a deter- rent, has proved a complete failure. Im- prisonment, in place of having a deterrent influence upon the majority of the offend- ers, brings them into association with the hardened criminals, and they leave the gaol considerably worse for the contamin- ? ation, than when they entered it. Mr Trenohalso urges the opinion that respon- - sibility does not terminate when a prison- er is discharged. This hé looks upon as va.. critical time of the man's life, when tv careful watch is m...

THE CAMBRIDGE GULF GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

THE CAMBRIDGE GULF GOLD FIELDS. THE Northern Territory correspondent of the Adelaide Observer, ander date Dec. IS, writes:-"A party ofjdiggers froniQuetus land went by water to Cambridge Gulf about a month ago, and another lot of ten, who arrived by the Airlie on Decem- ber 10, are now starting to try the coun- try for gold. A strong feeling seems to prevail that payable gold will be found there, but it is a wild place for diggers to go on speculation, as there are no means of transit for stores to the diggers, and the country where the gold is believed to bo is very rough. However, if gold is found, difficulties of that sort will soon be over- come, but at present, although, a few ounces of gold have been brought in, nothing like a payable field has been found, and it-would be very foolish for men to rush these unless they were pre- pared to run all risks and were also well provided with money to carry them along. Some of the Chinese storekeepers have been making enquiries about th...

COLONIAL TRAINING COLLEGES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

COLONIAL TRAINING COLLEGES. -o» FROM England news lias been received that the promoters of the Colonial College and Training Farms Company, who have purchased an estate at JHollesley Bay, Suf- folk, for the purpose of giving a practical training to intending colonists, have been compelled to bring the scheme upon the public market. A. few months ago it was reported that the whole of the required capital had been privately subscribed, and that therefore no appeal to the public would be necessary. The scheme, how- ever, has not been taken up so cordially as was anticipated, and hence the recent step. Tile capital of the company is £10,000 in £5 shares. The sum to he paid for the Hollesley Bay Estate is £15,000 in cash, £10,000 in fully paid-up shares, and £35,000 in mortgage on the estate. Besides the countenance of the Agents-General, the scheme has the sup- port of the head masters and principals of nearly all the leading public schools throughout the country, and has, appar- ently,...

This modest and gallant ofBoer is in appear- ance the very last man one would expect to behold in a heroic explorer of the Arctic regions. He is tall and thin, with, narrow chest and stooping shoulders. Be wears a bushy black beard and spec lacles. The black suit which he invari- ably wears completes his air oE a student or a professor at a not very prosperous ~ University. He bas, in great measure, recovered his health, imperilled by the privations in the far North. Oddly enough, what he now most feels _ ie the cold, to the effects of which he is most susceptible. He is a man of singular modesty. He has a notion that it is not good form to 6ay anything of himself, and discussed chiefly the positio...

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. FRIDAY, February 12, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT -»? PERTH WHOLESALE PBICES CURRENT. FBIDAT, February 12, 188C. A moderate trade has been done during the last fortnight, and though there is no sign of a speculative demand truders show a certaiu amount of confidence in the stability of the markets. There is a strong demand for money, and it is understood thai money en the security of town land is now only obtainable from private sources. We repeat that there is nothing in the state of this colony to neces- sitate th« cautious tone adopted by our financial institutions, aud that their strin- gent policy must arise from extraneous cir- cumstances. The present rate of interest for first class mortgages is not less than eight per cent. The Banks still discount 90 days' paper at six per cent. The rates allowed for fixed deposits at 3, 6 and 12 months, are 3, 4 aud 5 per cent, respec- tively. Atteution is directed almost daily to the urgent want of dwelling accommodation in this city. This has reached such a stag...

KITCHEN GA.EDEN. -* IQ a climate like the Western Austra- lian proper vegetable diet is of great im- portance to the welfare of our body,' and therefore also as a mutter of course to the happy condition of our mind. Fruit and vegetables and other light vegetarian food should form 90 per cent, of the sub- stance of our diet. If one compares our present general mode of diet, into which the consumption of gross animal matter enters so largely, with the general vege- tarian diet of the Latin, Greek, and Ma homedan races of Southern Europe, one naturally look« for a marked difference in the effect of these two entirely opposed modi vivendi, and one is not little aston- ished to find that as a rule these total, or nine-tenth, vegetarians of the South of Europe are in a physically better condi- tion . than most of us with all our gross animal feeding. General debility is a cause of disordered digestive organs, slug- gishness of the liver, diseased kidneys, etc., . of such frequent occurren...
