THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, JANUARY 2, 1898. THE WORK OF THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN bunbay; ^imes. SUNDA F, JANUARY st i8ç8. THE WORK OF THE SESSION. It would be difficult to find in the history of Parliamentary in- stitutions a session mot e barren of legislative results than the one just ended in this colony. When the Ministry made; its appearance on the hustings it was fall of fine promises of future reforms, which, though they did not touch upon any of the greater principles of political, would stilt have helped to render life a little better for our population than it is at present. But the Government have maintained themselves in office for the las!; seven years by makiug promises which they never meant to pro- perly falfil, and which at most they have kept to the ear but not to the sense. If any further proof of the accuracy of this observation were needed, it was; amply supplied by th% record of the session just closed. During its earlier part the tactics of the Government were those of obstruction pure and simple. Day after day passed a...

The Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

There was a very large attend- ance at ;the Canning Park races on Boxing Day. The Government House party were present on this occasion, otherwise the meeting could not be considered a fashion- able one. We are given to under- stand that most of the ladies are keeping their prettiest frocks to wear at the New Year's meeting' when great things are expected in the way of dressing. Lady Smith favoured biscuit-coloured lawn, with folded black satin belt, hat of biscuit straw, trimmed with red roses and grasses. Miss Smith was prettily dressed in stripped grass lawn, with a brocaded sash, hat of cream straw and pink roses. Mrs. Hassell was gowned in a black-striped grena- dine over amber silk, stylish black lace hat. Mrs. Morehead wore a brocaded peacock - blue gown, bodice of red silk, covered with cream lace, red and white straw hat.

YACHTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

YACHTING. During' the Christmas holidays the river was simply teeming with yachts, and the number of persons who camped out daring the holi- days was a considerable one. It was lovely weather for boating, and consequently the trips were j most enjoyable. It is very satis- factory to be able to chronicle the fact that no accident of any moment occurred to any of the members of the numerous parties which were ont. Several were too risky with " King Sol," and exposed their limbs too freely to his rays. The result was a severe blistering, and,- in some cases, I know persons so suffering were bedridden for a day or so. It was rumoured throughout the city on Tuesday that a party of six yachtsmen, who had left Perth on Thursday night in the Inez, were missing/and fears was enter- tained as to their safety. They, however, bobbed up serenely late on Tuesday night. Their lengthy absence was due to the fact that they had enjoyed themselves so much that they had decided to spend two extra days ...

(Guildford;.-You cannot object to the umpire's decisions after once agreeing about his acting as umpire. Even if the man is given out wrongly, ~ out he must go. There seems to be a general impression among the juniors of W.A. that they can change their umpires after the fall of each wicket. This, as Euclid would say, is absurd. The only remedy against had umpiring is for the Associations to appoint good men, who will he entitled to the respect of all players. S. S.

PUBLIC OPINION Declares : That one long beer in the shade is worth all day "in the sun." That British ships, like British cutlery, will soon be "made in Germany."   That there will be a good move in the mining world early in the new year. That the SUNDAY TIMES is the exact paper wanted by the public, and has come to stay. That a Cretan autonomy without a Turkish Tribute will not be very wel- come to the Sultan. That the Federal Convention is merely a farcical excuse for putting off de- partmental work.     That the fire on the Buninyong came just in time to prevent the passengers from making things warm for the caterer. That it is nearly time employers and employes in the engineering trade left off their destructive quarrels and began their work. That the new steamship lines subsidised by Germany to trade with India will strike a heavy blow at the British carrying industry. That Mr. Chamberlain's tour of Her Majesty's Dominions in 1898 will be ...

THE GOLDEN FLEE[?]E. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

THE GOLDEN FLEECE. (BY A GOLDFIELDS EXPEHT.) The shareholders of the Croesus South United have decided upon an ! investigation of the affairs of their, company. It will take a lot of investi- gation to put some of those English companies straight. Does it never occur to the Britisher to investigate first and invest afterwards ? #?"*._ * The Mount Charlotte is going .to abandon dry crushing and take' to the old stamper process. Yet dry crushing has proved a success, notably at the Norseman, the Hill End and the New Australasian. ';.'»».? Mr.'C. H. Cheesbrough, who is in- terested in some of the properties on the new Toodyay goldfield, tells me that the scene of the discovery is about midway between Newcastle and New Norcia, and is situated on lands be- longing to the Abbot of New Norcia, a Mr. Mendel, and the Midland Bail way Company.

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 3.] To C. J. MORAN, ESQ., M.L.A., [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 3.] To C. J. MORAN, ESQ., M.L.A., DEAR SIE, 1 have chosen yon as th« addressee of my third epistle, nol because I consider you next in im- portance to those who have gone before, but because by the irony ol Fate and the ignorance of thc electors, you represent, after youi own fashion, the most important of our goldfields. How it happens, that you, doomed through life to play a very humble though suffi- ciently discordant part in the orchestra of politics, came to be in such a position is akin to the ancient problem as to how the flies got'into the amber. The sage who first investigated this mystery was conclusive of one fact-that the flies did not improve the amber; and so, I fear, it is with you. Nevertheless, your presence in politics is more easily accounted for than the phenomenon just alluded to. First and fore- most, yon are an Irishman, and your countrymen are pat- riotic. Then, again, upon the platform you are a veritable sheep in wolf's cl...

I advise everybody to go who can possibly get into the house. # # # Of course, Ye Olde Englyshe Fayre will hold a great many of the remainder.

When the place has only 3,500 or so in it-no uncommon occur- rence, I am told-both lessees beam so amiably upon the public that I feel sure they would shout for the crowd if that mai-tinet-like bench of Licensing Magistrates had not deprived them of the opportunity.

[?]acing [?]otes. LATEST CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

flaring fjtüte. LATEST CHAT. As the Perth Cup is, with the weather, the chief topic of the moment, a few notes on the work done by the best horses should be acceptable. To pick the half a dozen from which should issue the winner, I should nominate Fadla deen, Le Var, Onslow, Primrose, The Black Bock, and Tellus. On i track forin and past work I would sift these down to a duel between Fadladeen and Le Var. These two have unquestionably done the most thorough Cup preparations of the lot. The difficulty is to say which of them should be preferred. Fadladeen is much the freer horse on the track, and carries very nearly his Cnp weight in his morning work. On the other hand, Le Var, with a lighter weight, does about the same work, but is hardly as good a grafter as his formidable opponent He may be expected to show better form with the colours up. He is in the pink of condition-"all wire and whip- cord." The same applies to Fad- ladeen, who is as fit as hands can make him. On last year s ...

VERY PLAIN ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

VERY PLAIN ENGLISH. When the Federal Convention next meets, it may do something to atone for its previous short- comings, if it will promulgate an ! absolute and definite determination I that Australia shall be kept free from the inroads of all coloured aliens of every sort, kind, and des- cription. We are not called upon to discuss the relative merits of Hindoo and Afghan, Chinese and Japanese, Malay, Kanaka, or Syrian. The people of Australia have firmly decided te have none of them, to exclude them all, and to keep them out for ever and ever. If the Convention does not voice this determination it does not rep- resent the thoughts, feelings, and desires of the people, and nothing can save it or give it any force whatever. If the Convention fail in its duty, then the Conference of Premiers, which is to meet directly afterward, will do well to address itself to the subject, and to proclaim in firm and decisive language that which is unmistak- ably the popnlar will. It is quite usele...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE ALBATROSS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE ALBATROSS; Majestic bird! those wide-spread wings of white, Perfect a type of some great, lonely soul, Hovering over the dark Infinite That hides from mortal ken the un- known goal, Whither we urge while countless ages roll ! The broad sun glints - upon the lifting wave, And thy clear eye doth meet his blind- ing beam ; The day goes down in silence, sombre, grave, And sad with mystery : Night reigns supreme, But on unmoving' pinion poised you seem, To pass and come again as in a dream. What reek you of the calm-the storm -the cold ? The changing challenge of the change- less Deep ? Ton mete the marches of the liquid wold, That rolls its undulations from the steep Of the Antartic to the palm-fringed sweep, Of Oceana's thousand isles that peep Above the sapphire bosom of warm seas, Where the black gale dies out in gentle breeze ! Life over Death ; Hope amid blank De- spair, Thy flight doth symbolize eternally ! Moving, yet motionless, thou stemmest - Air, And- see...
