NORTHAM TABLE TALK. " Let it serve for table talk, Then what[?] then speakest, among other things, [?] digest it." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 11 May 1880

NORTHAM TABLE TALK. " Let it servo tor table Ulk, Thfln¡-whfit°ft*<.<» thou »peakuat. maouti othur thing«. I .ball «litest it".""." ~~ On Wednesday we were blessed with a glori- ous downpour of ruin which continued at in teVf als throughout the night. The sowing of fallow lands has commenced, ploughing is also on the wajv itrfd judging by present ap- pearances we/áeeui likely to have one of our good old sermons. Grass is making its appearance, and there is every present prospect of there being plenty of feed for the May and June lambing. From the back country I hear that a plentiful supply of water fell some weeks ago, filling wells and poobi, so that on this score we have room for thankfulness. Indeed I think I am right in saying that the prospects of the colony were never better, and if we could only get people to see it, and leave off the eternal creaking- - which doe3 no good, but may do infinite harm -Ufe would be much more jolly for every one.

Such being the case, we feel that it would he an act of inexcusable injustice on our part m ere m e to pass o\ er in silence Mr. Steebe's very hostile attack both upon the late Administration, and upon those of his fellow-members, m ho-while he was ab- sent in England-m ere bearing the burden and heat of the day.

WORKING HORSES DOUBLE. TO THE EDITOR OR THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 14 May 1880

WORKING HORSES DOUBLE. To THB Editor or the Wbbt Australian. Sib,-The regulation for working horses double upon the York roads is one of the most irritating and tyrannical that was ever put in force by a small minority, against the wishes and common sense of a large majority. I have asked for sound reasons, but can hear of none, not even from those who hare been foremost in enforcing the Act. Dogmatic assertion is not sound reason. From my experience in driving my, own teams, both bullocks and. horses, and in superintending the repair ing.of roads, I WtSf be allowed to know something, as well as the members of the York Roads Board. In my opinion it is what "Old Richard" would catt «paying too dear for your whistle." The position I take is this. There must be a cer- tain amount of wear and tear according to the number of horse's feet, the number of wheels, and the weight which each wheel has to bear. In the case of a dray the wheels run in their original groove, the shaf ter walks in...

Mr. Steere evidently labours under the impression that the colony suffered a great loss through his absence from it, and more especially through his absence from his place in the Council Chamber, where, until his departure, be filled the position of the so-colled ' leader of the Opposition.' Mr. Steere, with characteristic modesty, proceeds to criticise and find fault with the action of those public men who 'were devoting their time and attention to matters political while he-Mr. Steere-was enjoying himself some thousan...

COVERLEY'S CASE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 14 May 1880

COVERLEYTS CASE. I To THB Editor of tot West Avstbaliaw. Sib,-The Herald of Saturday, 1st instant, devotes rather a lengthy paragraph to com- ment upon the case of cattle stealing against W. Coverley, lately heard at Bunbury. With much that is said by the editor on the subject of the unnatural conduct of the young Cover ley's " turning round" and 'giving evidence against their own father the public will agree, -although it is clear from "the depositions taken by the committing magistrates that without the sons' evidence there wa» no case against the father. But the It sr aid's comments on tiie case, as regards the magistrates' action, is altogether based upon a misleading assump- tion. The magistrate-or rather magistrates, for three sat upon the case (the R.M. « a P.M. j and a J.R.)-bad nothing whatever to do with the sons turning Queen's evidence. So far from the R.M. coming '* to a» agrettnent itith " Gilbert and Thomas Comley fe bear évidente " against their own father, when they...

Country Letters. (From our own correspondents.) GERALDTON, May 9. My last communication commenting on the site decided upon by tlu Government for the police station at Mount Wittenoom has called forth remarks in vindication of the selection, from those who know very much more about the question than I do. I will only remark that the information sent to you was given to the writer amongst others by the two men who carted the goods for the police to the station, and I fail to see what object they could have had in misleading. However, I am very glad. tó""firicrthey are in error, as it is a comfort to know that the gentleman in black is not always so black as he is painted.

THE" " Mist %Mn\lm. Vigilans et Axjdax. PERTH, FRIDAY;MATU, 1881). THE ROAD LOAN. So many complaints have been made of late in regard to the state of disrepair into which the main roads of the colony have fallen since the management of them was taken, out of the hands of the Roads Boards, that the subject must not altogether pass without comment on our part ; although we hope - from the fact that the expenditure of the Road Loan money, in most of the principal districts of the colony, has lately been placed under the supervision of the Boards-that the Government have become anare of the complete failure of their previous arrange- ments, and that the w ork may henceforth be more satisfactorily carried on. ' There is no .doubt that the original intcn* tion ot the Road Loan was. a good one. The Eastern Districts Railway was about to be commenced, which-although indirectly it would benefit the colony at large-still, would not confer any other than this indirect benefit, except upon that...

I never said that the conduct of the members of Council had been " discreditable," » word which you prominently draw attention to by placing it ia inverted commas, and which when thus placed in a report of a speech, denotes that such is the actual expression used by the speak- er ; and moreover any one reading your state- ment would infer that this offensive allusion ex- tended to the conduct of members ' generally.

His hair was thick and crimped, his black eyes moist and plum-like in appearance, his hooked nose also and wide red mouth were clearly indicative of Jewish.blood. His complexion however was fair, and altogether he was by no means ugly. His behaviour was always agreeable, and he seemed good tempered and anxious to please, so long as a personal loss or gain to himself ...
