OBSERVATIONS ON SELECTING AND TREATING JARRAH TIMBER FOR EXPORT. (Continued.) SEASONING SAWN JARRAH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 7 May 1880

OBSERVATIONS ON SELECTING AND TREATING JARRAH TIMBER FOR EXPOBT. Bt V.S. {Continued.) S*a60NI!to Sawn Jaeeah. As soon as the timber has been cut up, it [ should be removed to a shed and there stacked to season, laid level and parallel. When the ?took is finished, it should be lightly covered with saw dust. This is the best protection pos- sible, and a material always plentiful at a saw mill, light to handle, clean, and euBjr of appli- cation. If the English plan of putting battens between each layer, of timber in a stack were adopted, or the scantlings placed in an exposed rack where the air was fieely admitted to the timber, it would completely ruin jarrah in such a climate as this. The seasoning of jarrah cannot be hurried, time is absolutely necessary to fit it for market, and it must be covered. In large scantlings, and baulks, the gummy na- ture of the sap causes it to coagulate and pre- vents the inner sap from escaping, hence jarrah ia never fully seasoned when left in large ...

THE Mtú %mixúk\\. Vigilan« et Audax. PERTJO, FRIDAY, if A Y Ï, 1880. ~ mr7 steëreTt guildford! Tjieue is today such a large demand upon our space, that any comments we may make upon the important speech which on Tues- day last Mr. Steeke delivered to the elec- tors of the Swan, must necessarily be very brief. With Mr. Steebe's opening remarks we very heartily agree; it is a most hopeful sign \then we- sec a constituency casting aside narrow local prejudices, stronger per- haps in WestenfAnstralia than almost any- where else, and showing-as the Swan elec- tors have done by inviting Mr. Steehe to represent them-that they take an intelli- gent interest in questions of general policy, and in choosing their representative, con- sider the requirements of the colony from a ' broad and comprehensive,' national point of view, instead o£ merely confining their at. tent ion to matters of local detail. For cer- tainly nothing can be more discouraging to a member, nothing can more injuriously af...

Q*legnqr(ju fjte. f Associated Press.] London, May 4th. The Daily Telegraph, referring to the in* crease which has recently taken place in the Russian Navy stationed in the Pacific,-in view of the possible consequent danger to the Australian colonies which the movement may ' entail, suggests that a strong squadron should be stationed in colonial waters, and that the colonies should pay a portion of the cost. Great excitement prevails in Hamburg, owing to the German Government seeking to include a part of that city in the Zollverein, from which it was hitherto exempt in con- sideration of paying an annual sum. Mr. Bradlaugh, the new member for North- ampton, having declined upon conscientious grounds to subscribe the oath required, en admission, from members of the House of Com- mons, a select committee has been appointed to consider whether in his case the House may not dispense with the customary oath.

AGAIN—WHO IS TO BLAME? TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 11 May 1880

AGAIN-WHO IS TO BLAME P To thx Editob of the West Australian, j 1 Dear Sir,--I think it time for the settlers of this district who take any interest in its wel- fare, to bestir themselves in the matter of its roads, and their management. Up to this time, under the management of the District Board, we have boasted of the best main line in the colony, but I am sorry to say that we shall not be able to do so much longer, if the present state of things is allowed to continue. Anyone who knows anything about road making, knows that when the first rain sets in is the time to begin work. The drains and cul- verts get choked with leaves, and unless cleared before the heavy rains set in, throw the water upon the road and cause no end of damage to it. I believe I am correct in saying -that not one penny has been spent in the manner I have suggested, on the Toodyay roads this year, and damage to the extent of several hundreds of pounds is the consequence, which an outlay of Í20 at the right ti...
