THE WEST AUSTRALIAN SUNDAY, JUNE 5, 1898. THE NEW RAILWAY RATES. The Press of Perth is very care- ful to publish every scrap of alleged intelligence which is likely to favour its pastors and masters, the Government, and which may make its appearance in the gold- fields or provincial papers, and it is equally careful to dihgeutly suppress everytlring which may tend to their discredit, even though it be true as Holy Writ Foi* ibis reason the vast majority ofl the people of Perth are quite ignorant of the particulars of the Jätest piece of high-banded robbery perpetrated by the Government, the papers they, support having been careful to publish the replies' .of fjrovemraent officials to the eriticisms to which they haye,Jbeen subjected, w!6i|¿^Ihe critics 'îhem selves have*-Been totally ignored.

Pne of the leading periodicals re- cently contained the following :-**" Is the Golden" finie applicable to business in the present day ? The answer generally is that it is not. At least, whatever may be the answer with the lips, the practical answer in business is decidedly in the negative. One man, however, is crank enough to believe that tiie Golden-Bale-can be applied to business now, and that it is not neces- sary to wait- until the so-called millenium before .living up to this principle.

PUBLIC LETTERS Ti) PUBLIC MEN. [No. 21.1 "i To THE HONOURABLE SlE JAMES Lee-Steere, Kt., Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, SrR,-Yonr position as Speaker of the popular Chamber, which you have so long honourably and ably j filled, place you beyond the reach of I ordinary political criticism. I am not inclined in your case to deal ' with any portion of yopr biography, but I am prepared to make a lew remarks on your re- cent address to your constituents on the all-absorbing topic of federation. It seems to me that, like-, many ' of the anti - federalists, your objec- tions to the Commonwealth Bill are based upon fallacies; and it is possible that I may be able, to do yon, as well as the pnblic, à service by dispelling a few of them. .

The World of [?]eels. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 5 June 1898
I Mit Marlu of WLhttls. (By "Tub Wanderie.") Wet weather put a stop to all cycle racing and touring on Wed- nesday last, which, as a public holiday, is usually taken advan- tage of by scorchers and others. Several of the racing " cracks " have been appearing at small meetings on the fields during the past few weeks and were to have ridden at Coolgardie on the 1st inst. The majority of the post- poned meetings were hel 1 yester- day. * * * Adelaide is the only place in Australia where clubs and other bodies running race meetings reap any financial benefit. This success is n'ghtiy attributed to the strin- gent and determined action of the local League in regard to betting. There the hooknosed bookie, or bookies with any other shaped nose, are promptly run in (or out of the grounds) hence the con- tinued sport of the public. As a wanderer, £ have seen races rnn all over the colonies, and betting at each of them, bnt never have I seen the sport at snch a low ebb as it is in this colony,...

THROUCH A WOMALS "PÍMCE-MEL" ¿ 1 * ' r.' The courteous invitation Issued, i» ladies from the committee of the federation meeting, held in St. ?George's Hall, was, I am glad to -say, largely availed of. A police- man jealously guarded the en- trance to the "ladies' gallery," and even the late arrival found, no -difficulty in securing a seat, though the crowded state of the hall be- low had necessitated the admission ?of the sterner sex into the balcony, but upon a .woman's face appear- ing at the doorway the legal cus- todian excercised fully his royal, prerogative, and the male occupier -of a seat had. to vacate in due deference to the lady. Sir John «poke fluently, and hi&..."£ag" of " Vii tell you all about it later -on," was greeted with- gpodr natured laughter.

THE EMPEROR'S LEAVE OF ABSENCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 5 June 1898
- ;- - - *->-f- f - , Barêt had of ten been told of lus re- semblance in ïace and voice "io the Emperor, and had, indeed, found in it a method of amusement for his friends and himself, but he never dreamed that there might be any danger from the mimicry. Even when some of the men laughed, and then, suddenly paling, cried, '* Hush ! " as a jsOund of footsteps draw unar. he had not thought that this resemblance, for which he was not to blame, could cause him any trouble. And the last thin*; he feared would have b-«*n that the story- ~uld have reached tho p dace. Even Colonel Carolet, grave and methodical, was surprised frjin his usual composure at the summ-ms from the Emperor, and when he presented himself a conversation took place which will not he found mentioned in the State annals or even hinted at on the pages of history. The Emperor was seated at a table, and merely glanced at the white-haired sol-lier as he entered. " I am going to honour you with my confidence in a certain ...
Roming. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 5 June 1898
ROWING. (By "An Old 'UN.") "Take your time from me, boys." The Fremantle Annual Regatta, which has been looked forward to by aquatic enthusiasts for the past two months, was to have taken place on Wednesday last, the 1st inst., but owing to the rough and boisterous state-of the river upon which the races wonld have been rowed, the committee were called together, and decided that the regatta-should be postponed until Coronation Day, June 28. # # * The Perth clubs, with their boats on board, arrived at Fre- mantle before noon, and a large body of Perthites arrived by train, only to find that the races had been postponed. Owing to the non-opening of the telegraph offices no word could be sent to inform the rowing men of Perth, hence they all had a visit to the seaside town for no purpose. * * *. From a rowing man's point of view the water was not of a suffi- ciently rough nature to prevent them from rowing, had the com- mittee so willed it, as the writer and many of those who intended ...
