THE BENEFIT TO THE HAYTOBS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
THE BENEFIT TO THE HAYTOBS. -Last Night (, Saturday) was set apart by the management of the Cremorne Theatre as a complimentary benefit to the three Haytons, who hare been ex- tremely popular during their short stay in Perth, and the enthusiasm which greeted their first sketch, " Fun on a Farmyard," was so pronounced that they had to reappear. As might readily be imagined their turns are very fatiguing, but notwithstanding this patent fact, the audience was so demon- strative that, willy-nilly, they were compelled to respond to its demands, which they did with a very good grace, and "Fun on a Farmyard" was re- placed by a burlesque cinematograph view of the fight between Fitzsinunons and Corbett. This phantasy was even more diverting than the original turn, and the merriment of. their patrons knew no bounds. The entire company ably supported them in making the evening a capital night out. Miss Ida Bosyln, the new serio-comic coming in for a liberal share of tiie applause. The Huline...

SOCIAL AND LOCAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
SOCIAL AND LOCAL ITEMS. i Great satisfaction is expressed that the Government is taking over the railway on Saturday. People are pleased with the time-table, except with regard to the lateness of the first train in leav- ing Kalgoorlie. Messrs. Vosper and Tonniges have been thanked by the townspeople for their successful efforts to make Kanowna the terminus of the eastern railway, and for arranging for a through express service from Fre- mantle.
KANOWNA. PROGRESS OF THE LEADS. KANOWNA, June 11. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
KANOWNA. PROGRESS OP THE LEADS. KANOWNA, Jone ll. Seid and Kailey, on the north lead, had a test parcel of pug- and iron- stone treated at the Lake View South battery, returning an average of 27dwt. per ton. Barry and James, who have been raising gold-bearing pug on tho adjoining claim, have just struck wa&h, which at present is estimated to average 'iôdwt. A rich strike of" ironstone was made on the north lead to - day, and the specimens ' shown in the town are the best yet seen. They are believed to have come from Soden and party's claim. A crushing of 54 tons from Tulioch's claim on the Fitzroy lead yielded 43oz. The material was taken from the dump, and a large body of similar stuff is available. Nicholl and party have crushed 42£ tons at their Q.E.D. claim for 148oz. Their previous return was 43 tons for 284oz. McCoy and party, on the south lead, crushed 36 tons of wash, which went over 70oz. The previous crushing of 29 tons gave 120oz. Feeling is gaining ground that th...

THE EXCESSIVE RAILWAY HATES. THE AGITATION INCREASING. The agitation against the increased railway freights and the policy of the Government in regard to residence areas is growing, and a feeling of in- tense opposition to the'Government now prevails throughout the whole of the goldfields. At Coolgardie much annoy- ance is felt amongst the mass of the people at the action of* a small clique of Ministerialists there wbo are endeavouring to make it appear that Coolgardie supports the Ministry in its recent actions.

A KALGOORLIE DEEP LEAD. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
A KALGrOOELIE DEEP LEAD. I It was reported in Kalgoorlie yester- day (Saturday afternoon) that a deep alluvial lead has been discovered near the Kalgoorlie racecourse, where keen prospecting has of late been in pro- gress. The wash discovered is of a promising nature. Several men pro- ceeded to the locality as soon as the facts became known, and pegged out claims, but up to the present there is nothing to warrant a rush.

JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
JUSTICE. Sir,-I would like to bring under TOUT notice a few facts that I ha\e gleamed in connection with a case tried before Mr. Cowan the other day, in which a man named Edward Morris «ned another man of the name of Charles Moore for rent for a building occupied by him in Adelaide Terrace, near the Causeway. The facts of the case are these : Moore and Morris had been occupying the building for some years, and late in 1896, one of them was written to by the Government (to whom thc land belongs) and given one month's notice to quit, but informed that if he made applica- tion, they would allow him to lease the land. Morris evidently became pos- sessed of the letter, as he replied and applied for the lease, but as it was thought he was sub-letting the place to Moore he was refused. He, however, stated he was not sub-letting it, but allowing a friend to occupy portion of it, and, with a little wire-pulling by some influential person, he was'allowed, the lease to date from the beginning ...

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE WANTS AND WOES OF THE PEOPLE. BE VISION COURTS. Sir,-Being an admirer of your out- spoken journal, and knowing you to be a working- man's friend, I have taken the liberty to approach you with a view of eliciting your sympathy towards getting the revision courte held during' the hours of from about 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., which would then give every 'working man a show to see that his name was in the proper place, and that is on the roll. Take, for instance, the .court held in Perth on the 17th ult., where hundreds were struck off the roll through no fault of their own, but through their landlords not having paid their rates, and for a man to have to attend in the day time it means a day's pay, and we are not now too flush with money to pay, in some instances, 10s. to be put on the roll Tours, etc., TnCBEBTOES.

ORIGINAL POETRY. A FIRESIDE REVERIE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
ORIGINAL POETRY A. FIRESIDE REVERIE. Four-score years ! Each after eaeh Coming back to me again, Back with all they have to teach, Vanity and peace and pain. Oft they cross my silent mood. Sitting by the leaping flame ; Päst for ever ill and good, Early days and years of fame. Kich with store of hope and love. Idle with my careless youth ; Sad with grief time cannot move. And severe with hard won truth. Now that I am homeward bound, All my years come back to me. Peace at last ! Yet-is .peace found, Even in Eternity ? ABTHÜB, MORRISON. We have been requested to publish the following letter, which has been re- ceived by Mr. F. C. B. Vosper, M.L.A. : -" Dear Sir,-I am instructed by the members of our union to convey their sincere thanks for the services you so kindly rendered in connection with the police raid upon the men on strike at the Colonial Boot Factory.

ROWING. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
ROWING. (BY "AN OLD 'UN.") "Take your time from me, boys." Since the postponement of the Fremantle regatta on the 1st of this month rowing matters have been dead, no life nor energy being shown by either the clubs or the members, and it cannot be won- dered at either. The action of the Fremantle committee in deciding to postpone the races without con- sulting the competitors has been the talk of oarsmen, and the com- mittee's action is generally con- demned, and, to my mind, rightly so. Had the water been too rough or in any way dangerous a good reason could then have been ad- vanced, and the committee exoner- ated from any blame, but such was not the ose. Far rougher weather was experienced at the Fremantle Regatta of 1897, and that was carried through without any mis- hap or danger, and one and ali who were to take part on the 1st inst, condemn in strong terms the action of the Fremantle club. # # * From all accounts many of those who entered have now decided to take no further pa...

THE DIGGER AND THE DENTIST. A STORY OF SUFFESING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
THE DIGGER AND THE DENTIST. A STOßY OF SUFFESING. (BY ANANIAS SMITH.) I met a man from the fields yesterday, Joe the Snag. " Come an' 'ave a drink," he said. I came. " Fill 'em ap again," I said. They «ere filled. Also, they were emptied. " Let's have another," said Joe. We had-several others. " My oath ! Perth is a fine place," said Joe. "Ifs pretty, and it's healthy, and ifs clean-" (I never call a man a liar). -" And ifs got the best dentists in W. A. Look here, ole man. For five weeks I've had 40,000 little tin devils running a boiler factory in my jaw. See that ?

THE MAN ABOUT TOWN. MAKES FURTHER ENQUIRES PERFIDY IN THE GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
/ -----------^ THE MAN ABOUT TOWN. MAKES FURTHER ENQUIRES PERFIDY IN THE GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE. Matters in connection with the Tecent **, sacking " episode at the .Government Printing Office have assumed another phase. When the 25 hands were discharged on May 1 they were informed that they would have the preference -when next an accession to the staff was being made. Belying upon this most of them remained in Perth, comforting themselves with the thought that they would be again in employ- ment by the time Parliament next meets for the despatch of business - a vain delusion for most of them,, Humours were .cuirent during the past week that .a large number of men were to be taken on the following Mon- day morning. Consequently the highest expectations were indulged in, each one hoping that he might be one of the fortunate ones. The ?outcome of* this rumour was " that nine of the discharged hands re- ceived , an intimation ou Friday last that their services would be required ou t...
IS PROTECTION A DYING GREED? SIR ROBERT GIFFEN SAYS, YES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
IS PROTECTION A DYING GREED? SIE ROBERT GIFFEN SAYS, TES. To the March issue of the Economic Journal, the official organ of the British Economic Association, Sir R. Giffen has contributed a valuable article on "Pro- tection for Manufacturers in New Countries." One question which the eminent statistician sets out to solve is whether manufactures can be estab- lished to any material extent in a new country by means of protective duties, and his conclusion is equally interesting and important. He says :-"The maxi- mum of the manufactures that are cap- able of being affected by protective duties is so small that a new country, even if it could get all the manufactures conceivably possible, would practically remain as before without the variety desiderated and without adding sensibly to its population and resources/' The first point which is emphasised ina paper characterised by close reasoning andi sound economic arguments is that in the nature of things there is a natural variety of oc...
FOOTBALL. AUSTRALIAN RULES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
FOOTBALL. (BY "THE BARRACKER") . AUSTRALIAN RULES. The easy win of the West Perth over the Tigers last Saturday has been the theme of discussion during the past week. The West's very strongest supporters did not think they had so much up their sleeve as they did in the last quarter. # # # The tussles between Barney Grecian and Karrakatta Johnson were worth going mites to see. The veteran generally came out oh top, but when Johnson gets up to his dodges, as the season goes on, he'll shake Barney up. # # * The members of the Perth clubs are training in rare style on the Esplanade every afternoon, and Australian rules, Rugby, British Association and Lacrosse can be seen in full swing every after- noon. # # * I had a yarn with . the West Perth skipper, Grecian, and he tells-me his men are getting into great nick. Jones, Loel, Kennedy, Morgan, Messers and others are very attentive to training, and when they get used to one another's slay should be a remarkably fast lôV. # # # Tredennick,...
