MISAPPLICATION OF THE PUBLIC MONEY. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 May 1880

MISAPPLICATION OF THE PUBLIC MONEY. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. .SIR. - "~Q~niy country !" So exclaimed a Frenchman, on the 27th July 1830, when the Re- bellion of that period comineuccd. And so exclaims your humble servant on the 27th day of April 1880, in the colony of Western Austialia. "O my country !" Although I have not, like the poor Frenchman, to sigh over repeated political rup- tures, I have, alas, to mourn over mismanage- ment which has, like the revolution, shaken ser- iously the common welfare, and retarded our progress as a colony. When one takes a reproapective glance at past years from the time when in 1851, the waste of Imperial money commenced, and thinks of the mass of useless stone walls and other build- ings which were in courue of time erected by prison labour, and then turns to the harbour re- quirements and thinks for a moment what a vast amount of work might have been done towards helping vessels to load and unload by those thousands of men and lar...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 May 1880

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. We hear that Mr. 6. B. Williams has been appointed tidewaiter at Fremantle, vic« Mr. O'Connor, at a salary of J6100 per annum. The British Ma cannie Gazette calculates that th > late general election at home put in cir cu ation no less a sum than 15,000 ,CC0, through out tiie three kingdoms. A portion of the new Queensland Lo m waa floated in April .£2,00 M 00 was tho amount asked for, and nearly £0,000, 00 was applied for. The average price realized was JB90 14g. 5d.

THE STATE OF THE TOODYAY ROAD. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.,, SIE,-Up to the last few mouths no pleas anter drive could well be imagined than that from Guildford to Toodyay, The natural fea- tures of the country are extremely picturesque, and Jhe road itself has, till lately, been iu as neatly perfect order as could be wished. On Saturday week I had occasion to travel along it, and was sorry to observe that this splendid high- way has been neglected to such an extent ttiat an outlay of a large sum of money must take place, and a considerable time elapse, before, it can be restored to fair travelling order. Au ex- penditure of a few hundred pound* is immedi- ately required ; should the repairs be postponed till the winter sets iu, as many thousands, »ill not cover the cost of the uecossary works. ~ I am told that, under the unfortunate system devised by Governor Ord. the local board has no I power to spend a sixpence on the maiu line..

THE HIGH SCHOOL—A SUGGESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 May 1880

THE HIGH SCHOOL-A SUGGESTION. To- THE EDITOR OF THE WEST'AUSTRALIAN. SlB. -I should feel obliged by your inserting the present communication, as it íefers to a mat-, ter of some importance from an educational point of view. Our colony is now in possession of a High School which has been far more successful than its most sanguine promoters could have antici-. pated. > I would therefore call attention to the desirability of affiliating West Australia with ¡the University of Adelaide, so that boys in this colony could matriculate without their relatives or friends being put to the trouble and expense of sending them out of the colony for that pur- pose. The papers, as in the Oxford and Cam- bridge local examinations at home, might be en- trusted to some person or persons of standing, who would be present during the- examination. If the Government or some of the representa tive men of our colony were to make an applica- ^ tion to the Senate of the Adelaide University requesting that ...

MISAPPLICATION OF THE ROAD LOAN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 May 1880

MISAPPLICATION OF THE ROAD LOAN. To THE EDITOR OF THE WTEST AUSTRALIAN-. SIB,-In my former communication to you [ i upon this subjecti I alluded to the many' absurdities shown in the expenditure of the Road Loan, which if allowed to continue must, sooner or later, bring about a scandalous waste of public money-public money which from this time forth will cost the country ¿83600 a year interest. Protesting, as I have done, against the foolish waste of money upon those portions of the main roads already good, and against spending money in anticipation of fu- ture requirements, while there is work of abso- lute necessity to be performed elsewhere, I adhere to the maxim so forcibly laid down by Adam Smith in his " Wealth of Nations," that wasted labor is wasted capital. Alluding again to the Americans-and they are a good example to colonial Governments-their roads and rail- ways are the vanguard of their progress ; they are leading-strings to ever-spreading settle- ment, and distribute ...

Lord Northbrook has given his sanction to the appointment of Colonel Pasley, the Director of Public Works in the Admiralty Department, to the temporary charge of the Victorian Agent Generalship. The Pall Mall Gazette comments strongly upon the present state of New Zealand finances, and draws a most unfavourable contrast between the excessive debt per head of that province, and the other Australian colonies. i ^ The Times considera the New South Wales'1 Legislative Council entirely right in the action, it took with reference to the Stamp Duties; Bill, but says, nevertheless, the period of existence o...

LADIES' LETTER FROM LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 May 1880

LADIES' LETTER FROM LONDON. Some of your readers may like to hear of a new ' Home ' which has lately been opened, and in which we have all been more or less interested. It is intended to serve as a place of rest for women in business, especially for those employed in large London estab- lishments. These 'young ladies* are fre- quently obliged to stand from 9 a.m. till 7 or 9 p.m., with only one hour's rest at din- ner time, and half an hour for tea. The constant stooping, and the lifting of heavy weights, and the long hours of standing, are found tobe very injurious to health, and these youug women are frequently obliged to give up work at a very early age« Their wages are so small that they can make no provision for times of sickness, and sad tales vi destitution have consequently come to light. A benevolent lady determined to see what she eould do for this deserving class, and it occurred to her that if perfect rest, and fresh, pure sea air could be obtained, "before the complete ...
