Munro of nonsense Lam cure that the Colony which i Nave the Hon Piir to represent will object most strongly to pay its members anything like �500 a year. At. The present time we have no payment of members nor Are we Likely to have in Western Australia and it we allow this amount to stand in the clause we shall find that the local parliament will move in that direction. The Colony is not in a position to pay any Large sum As an allowance to its members and 1 pro test most strongly against this convention in any.

Williams on the cultivation of the Wattle and we specially commended the Enterprise to the settlers in this District or. Williams having generously offered to Send a Small Quantity of the seeds of the Golden Wattle to any person wishing to try the Experiment. It will be seen from the follow ing extract from the victorian express that for some months past this Indus try has been carried on a few Miles from Geraldton which judging from what has already been done promises to become of considerable importance not merely to the Victoria District but to the Colony at Large. We refer to the Export of Wattle bark by messes. Hague & Hunter who last year obtained certain concessions from or. Mckenzie Grant to enable them to carry on their operations at the Newmar Zacarra runs. The Busi Ness has been conducted by or. Hunter who has superintended the cutting bagging and shipping up to the present time of 3,661 bags of bark representing something like 160 tons. The last instalment of this season s bark some 84 tons was shipped by the Albany on monday last. It goes without saying that this Industry is one which when conducted on a Large scale As it is Likely to be in the future will provide employment for a great number of workmen and to the Small Farmers on the Chapman it has already proved a Good thing by calling their teams into requisition at an otherwise Dull season of the year. The enter prising firm who have this business in hand purpose in the event of experiments with the bark proving satisfactory to introduce machinery to extract the Tannin not Only from the Wattle bark but from the trunk of the Wattle As Well and by very Little doubt is entertained As to the result of the proposed experiments we May confidently look Forward to the time when Tannin will become an import ant item of Export from this District.
