EOYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY OF LONDON. SESSION 1874-75. (Continued from our last). [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 26 March 1875

Unfor- tunately, we had to eat seven of them, * I daresay when the animal is fat and well fed on oilcake and other thfngs, it caöi<?fc be Very bad ; but when he has been wormed to that extent that he is unable to stand, and is shot only because it would be a pity to leave him to rot, his meat is not very good, and it is interlaced with large sheets of parchment. He looks a ?ery large animal, but there is very little meat on him. He is more bone than anything else ; and I can assure you that of all the buckets of meat-for the bucket was our cooking-vessel-that we cooked when a camel was killed, never, in any single instance that I can remember, was there one single bubble of grease on the surface. The head is somewhat of a delicacy, and the feet are really very ¿rood, for his condition does not affect his feet very much. . ...

EXTRACT FROM PRIVATE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 26 March 1875

EXTRACT FROM PRIVATE LETTER. On Monday the 23rd of November, I took three natives and went to Willigimi (house of the Willgi) on the Weld Range, and returned to the camp on the 22nd. Knowing that the natives have a great respect for the Wiligimi, I determined to watch all their movements. While going up the side of the hill, they seemed to address some invisable being by cooing and talking very low, at certain intervals. When we arrived at the mouth of the cave, or more pro- perly speaking extinct crater, they took off all their clothes, then bowed very respectfully, two of them went down very cautiously, it being their first visit, they did not go far before they painted themselves with willgi. When they got to the bottom they made a fire, they then felt more at home, we all had dinner there, after which I spent about three hours going into every hole and corner in it, with the candle and pike. When I came again to the top I was like a red indian.

M ut K1 & it ir dineral. RIFLE MATCH.-Yesterday (Easter Monday) the M. R. Volunteers had a rifle competition at the butts on Mount Eliza. The principal event on the programme,-which seemed to have been drawn up with the design of encouraging ali who entered the lists-was the second contest for the elegant electro-plated tea-service won last year by Lance-corporal Dean. Only members who subscribed for the purchase of the plate are allowed to compete for it. The various . scores aud a detailed report of the matches shall appear in our next. PRESENTATION.-One of those pleasing little ceremonies which illustrate in a very marked degree the good feeling entertained by acquaint- ances towards a popular commander of a vessel took place at Fremantle last week, when Capt. McKinnon, late of the Georgette, who was on. the eve of departing for Melbourne, was pre- sented by his friends with an address and'"a"" purse of sovereigns.

COUNTRY NEWS. GERALDTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 30 March 1875

COUNTRY NEWS. GERALDTON. On Friday evening the 19th inst., at the Geraldton Hotel, a presentation of a very inter- esting kind took place. The fact that the pre- sent master of the Steamer Georgette, Captain Gordon McKinnon, was about to give up the command and leave the Colony for New Zealand becoming generally known, it was decided that the Victoria District should give him some tangible proof of the estimation he held with the public ; for this purpose, "some forty gentle- men met,Captain McKinnon at the time and place above mentioned to testify their respect and esteem in a practical way. Amongst those present were observed, M. Brown, Esq., M.L. C, C. Crowther, Esq., M.L.C., H. E. Victor, J. Palmer, C. Sutherland, Capt. Shand, H. Levy, J. Ingleton, J. G. Anderson, Esqrs., and the majority of the respectable inhabitants of Geraldton.

EXPERIENCES OF THE BALLOT. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 30 March 1875

EXPERIENCES OF THE BALLOT. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Whatever advantages, political or otherwise, there may be in the ballot, or in any system of secret voting at elections, it should not be for- gotten that it is not without its disadvantages. Its adoption was opposed and strongly condem- ned in England by some of the leading philoso- phical democrats, and most profound political thinkers of the time, particularly by the late lamented John Stuart Mill. And some of the a priori objections urged against it have never yet been answered in theory, or disproved by practical results. For instance, it cannot be de- nied that open voting, under whatever disad vontage or intimidation, is more manly, honest, and courageous than any system of secret voting can possibly be. and that concealment of any sort must always more or less encourage and favour fraud. It cannot be denied that every public right, such as the right of voting, in- volves and implies a corresponding duty, and conseq...

SCHOOL EXAMINATION. GOVERNMENT BOYS' SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 30 March 1875

SCHOOL EXAMINATION. GOVERNMENT BOYS' SCHOOL. The annual examination of the pupils attend- ing the Government Boys' School at Perth took placs on Thursday last, in the presence of a fair number of the scholars' relatives and friends. The general discipline of the school indicated careful training ; the boys appeared very intelli- gent, attentive, and well-behaved. The num- ber of pupils at present on the roll is 189 ; of these 170 were in attendance on Thursday. The examination of the various classes was conducted by Dean Gegg, the Rev. Mr. Gardiner,. Mr. Glyde M.L.C., and Mr. Geo. Shenton, and ex- tended over several hours. The subjects of ex- amination, especially in the first class, extended over matters rather beyond the limits prescribed for such examinations, and great was the sur- prise, and we might add the delight, of those who witnessed the promptitude, quickness and accuracy with which very complicated ques- tions in mental arithmetic were answered.

Seelingson v Roberts, Plaintiff'sought to recover £8 los. amount of an overdue prom : note which, with interest and costs amounted to £10 10s. 6d.

This case had been under hearing last court day. The plaintiff then, as now, sought to recover amount of an order for £5 given him by defendant in June, 71 on Stirling & Son in anticipation of employment. The order was at the time conditionally ac- cepted, but as there was no occasion afterwards to employ defendant it was dishonored. It now devolved on the defendant to prove, as had been   asserted, that the £5 in question had been in- cluded in previous or subsequent settlements. From the evidence tendered in support of this plea it was elicited, That s...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, MARCH 30, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 30 March 1875

®|e Stetem lustoto Firnes. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, MARCH 30, 1875. RESUMING the subject where we left it last week, we find that one of the most in- teresting and instructive lessons, to be learnt from the statistics of Friendly Societies, results from the consideration of the tables of sickness and mortality especially when taken in connexion with the ages of members. Mr. HAYTER furnishes us with two abstract tables, being decennial returns from 1864 to 1873 inclusive. For the last year 1873, we find the mean number of members 44*603, the number who died during the year 366, the cases of sickness 9*139, the time during which aliment was allowed 47*171 "3 days and the average to each ïûember 64 days, the number of wives registered 28*150, and the number who died 179. From these figures we gather that the deaths are as 1 in every 121*8 of the members-that the days on which aliment was allowed were more than one in the year to each member, and that but little over half the mem...
