Athletics. YACHTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
goldies. - YACHTING. (By Full Sail.) Yachting is a sport, or, should I ?. say, a pastime, which is vastly be- coming very popular in Perth. One has only to look at the appearance of the Swan on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, to ascertain the truth of this statement, for on such occasions the river simply teems with yachts. > There are Tritons as well as min- nows in yachting craft, and the sight as the sails on the various boats bend to the wind is certainly a pretty one. The programme prepared last Saturday by the Freshwater Bay Club was an interesting one, and the variouseventswere keenly contested. The race for boats 22ft. and under was won with ridiculous ease by Mr. T. E. Elliott's Lotus; and in the competition for boats 16ft, and' under, twice round the bay, a good race eventuated, it being finally won by Mr. A. T. Sherwood's Winsome. - There are few, if any, more en- thusiastic yachtsmen in Perth than Mr. R. B. Burnside, the Crown Solicitor, or Mr. A, T. Sherwood, the Sub...
SECOND JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
SECOND JUNIORS. Following are the respective positions to Dec. 4 of the clubs or teams playing in the Second Junior Association : Club or ?Team.* lis Sands & MacDongaU Telephone East Perth Endeavour Claremont Karrakatta Shenton Park MC.C. D.andW. Murray Guildford Smith's HOI Many and constant are the changes among the second juniors. This season the West Perth, the Truro C.C.. Midland Junction, the Australs, Leederville, and. John Hunter have all dropped out, while Sands' and MacDongall, The Endeavour (good name), Shenton Park, Karrakatta, and Smiths Mill have joined. So far as the matches played'can show, the best team among the new-comers, if not in the Association, is that of Sands and MacDongall. The Telephones, last years' premiers, are again going very well. The East Petth are strong (as- usual) ; The Endeavours are living up to their name. Clare- mont are a better lot than last year, and should make a bid forJ top place. The remainder are rather weak, and therefore a ...

A CHARITY PERFORMANCE. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
A CHARITY PERFORM- ANCE. - (To the Editor.) Sir,-It has been reported that Miss Marguerite Johnson (Mrs. Pollock) refused to appear at a matinee in aid'of the Children's Hospital, unless paid two guineas. This is an absolute falsehood. Miss Johnson refused to assist the Perth Lyric Club until she was paid a sum of two guineas long since due to her from that society. Despite eloquent assurances that '. it would be all right," and that the money would be forthcoming, it has not- been paid yet. Miss Johnson had no desire to prejudice the interests of so deserving an object, as that for which the matinee was given ; and she had privately assured the promoters of the entertainment that sh t -would give them her best assistance, and she has decidedly fulfilled her promise. -Yours, etc., r' LINDSAY POLLOCK Perth, Dec, 16th, 1897,.
THE INTERCOLONIAL REGATTA. GOULBOURN, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
THE INTERCOLONIAL REGATTA. Goulbourn, Saturday. Yesterday afternoon a largely attended meeting of yachtsmen was held for the purpose of discussing and making arrangements for the proposed Intercolonial Regatta to be held on Anniversary Day in Hobson's Bay. The conditions of the intercolonial 'races were con- sidered, it being eventually decided that the yachts should be divided into two classes, viz., from 6 tons to x6 tons rating and under 6 tons rating. A prize of not less than seventy pounds is to go to the winner of the first-class race, and of not less than sixty pounds to the second-rate winner. The steamship cötnpanies are to be approached, with a view to obtaining concessions in the rates for the conveyance of yachts, from the other colonies.
CYCLING. BOY'S ROAD RACE. THE LIMIT MAN WINS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
CYCLING. ! BO\rS ROAD RACE. [ THE LOUT MAN WINS. ' Despite the extreme heat of yesterday afternoon . over 30 of the entrants for the Boy's Road Race promoted by Mr. Perry, of Barrack street, elected to start. The course was from the Fremantle bridge to the malting house, Mount's Bay road, the distancé being estimated at xo miles. Bowling, the scratch rider, was one of the absentees, and the :virtual scratch man, viz., North (3osecs.) was asked to concede 8| min. to the limit men, Bishop and Huxtable. Bishop made the most of his start and won by 50 seconds from Evans who started from the 8 min. mark. Lacey from 5 min. was I 5secs. later «than Evans in arriv- ing and Pilgrim (8f min.) wa» 7secs. »behind him. The remaining com-1 petitors came in in batches. Con ' siderable interest was taken in the event ; hundreds of * wheelmen lining the route and assembling at the finish. North secured the fastest time for the distance, riding the journey in 30min. aPjsecs. Following is the result :...
CONCERNING THE CHOW. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
CONCERNING THE CHOW. That the cheap labour of the Chinese is not regarded as an alto- gether unmixed blessing by the inhabitants of the United States is well-known, buthow nasty are some of its accompaniments is perhaps not so generally recognised. Both as cooks and laundrymen they are much employed, and we have heard many dwellers on the Pacific coast say they could not get on without them. A decent white Iaundrymaid damps the linen- by sprinkling it with water. This, however, involves putting down the iron. But John Chinaman knows a better way. Filling his mouth with water, he squirts it on the linen in front of the iron, and by long practice he is able to blow it out in the form of a fine spray just where it is required. He sprinkles the paste for a pie- crust exactly in the same manner, so that the foolish patrons of these filthy creatures are hable to be « poisoned both inside and outside. Some people are found to object to ' this simple and easy labour-saving device, and we se...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
EDITORIAL. A dozen years ago, on the 22nd *©f November, 1885, I had the honour Jto introduce to the Aus ; Italian public, the very first Sunday newspaper that had ever been printed upon this continent. I had the supreme good fortune to have as my colleagues, a number .of gentlemen whose accomplish ments and energy could not be over-praised, and whose fidelity I shall ever gratefully remember. Our united exertions enabled me to present to the people of New South Wales, a Sunday paper which could have been read from any pulpit in the colony, without offence to the straightest of hearers. That original Sunday Times has long been a household word, and is now an absolute necessity of daily life in die mother colony. To-day I present to the West Australian people a paper which I believe will be found " entirely worthy of their support. I am proud and happy to say that I have been able to obtain the co-operation of the brightest and best of our local journalists. ' I am certain that none o...
Journalistic Enterprise. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
Journalistic Enterprise. Who shall say that the Perth dailies concern themselves only with the -affairs of Messrs. Bullion and Moneybags. Here is a tele- gram which received the honours of a special heading in the leading journal of last Tuesday. " Tne camp of W. Mason was burned this morning through the owner smok- ing a cigar in bed. The loss is estimated at JÊ16 in money and £2 in belongings.". We are very sorry for Mr. Mason, and hope that he will be able to de- posit in the P.O. Savings bank a sufficient proportion of his income to enable him to replace the '* £2 in belongings " at an early -date. We also sincerely trust that the *' £16 in money " belonged to somebody else. Looking at matters from a journalistic point of view, we feel that £2 will very generally overpay the value of the belong- ings of the average reporter. Also that **£16 in money'-* could only be found in his vicinity when some reckless individual had left it in his charge. But the purpose of this -article is...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
TURF TATTLE. When everybody is trying to pick winners is not the time to discuss the handicapping question ; besides it is rather late in the day to criti- cise the weights for Xmas and New Year. Still this paper would like to point out a f-w glaring absurdities and ask one or two questions. The handicapper is reported to have said if Mr. Kidman called on him, Blackwoods imposts would be justified. If this were possible, the following weights, which seem ridiculous to the ordinary eye, can doubtless be easily explained by the great " I Am *' :-Vivacity has to save ' Florrie 71b in the First Hurdle Ra^e at Perth. Why? In the same race the top weight, Wilfred, was asked to give three stone to a horse that meets him on even terms in Victoria. Why?!' At Canning Park, Henley has to give Yatheroo »51b. over five furlongs. Why??? Also, are these the mistakes'of a man who knows his business and understands the work required of him? The clerk with only Dr. and Cr. entries to post, easily cal...

HOMES FOR THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
HOMES FOR THE PEOPLE. -o THE gr»>at crv in this country is the need of a decent home convenient to the city, with plenty elbow room, pure air, plenty of water and soil from which the necessaries of life, such as vegetables, fruit, poultry, eggs, &c. can be produced by the individual himself. This class of property is obtainable in the Jubilee Estate No. 3, Canningfoed. The price is low, viz., from £12 per acre ; the terms are easy, and the agents are Messrs. T. Tate & Co. (of Sydney), 107 William street, Perth, from whom plans and all information are obtainable, and they drive bona fide buyers to inspect free of charge. The progress and develop- ments on the Estate are already astonishing. See it for yourselves be- fore it is too late.
BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
BOWLS. (By Bias.) Like an oasis in the desert is the pretty little bowling green on the Esplanade, surrounded as it is by dreary and dirty surroundings. The Perth bowling club is to be con- gratulated on having such an excel- lent ground, and a special meed of praise, is due to the curator for the excellent care he bestows on the turf and the flower beds surrounding the playing arena. On this charm- ing ground a match was played last Saturday between the Swan and Perth clubs, which resulted in the latter winning by 12 points. Every night during the week the attendance of members at the Perth, Rink has been good, and the pros- pect of several matches in the near future has certainly caused players to be more regular in attending to practice. -

WRESTLING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897
WRESTLING. (By Hold.) It is almost certain Professor " Greek George," the famous wrestler who recently arrived in the colony, will have his challenge to wrestle " all or sundry " accepted by Harry Pearce, of Coolgardie. That Pearce is a fine exponent of wrestling is undoubted, but methinks the Professor will be found to be his superior.
