VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. The play on the opening day in connection with senior football in Victoria was considered by many to in no way indicate how the clnbs were likely to stand at the close of the season, and the fol- lowing set of matches has clearly demonstrated that this opinion was fairly correct. Three teams that went down on the opening day were successful at their second essay, the match between Fitzroy and Collingwood being particu- larly exciting and attractive, and resulting in a well-earned victory for the Fitzroy boys. * * * Essendon and South Melbourne was another most exciting game, the Souths playing up well against the veterans of Essendon. The latter had all they could do to keep a bit. to the good at the finish, and the South Melbourne team gave every indication of j rendering a good account of them- ! selves during/ the season. * # # Melbourne had a very easy victory over the Carltons, the play of the latter being disappointing in the extreme. On the other hand the ...

RUGBY FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

RUGBY FOOTBALL. A great "gov between Pirates and Swans was seen on the Es- planade on Saturday, last year's premiers going down to the reds. Neither team played the game they played last year, but that may be accounted for by the fact that many new men are playing, and they are not used to one another's play. Both teams are a heavy lot, and towards the finish of the game rough play became the order of the day. * * # Jago (F.) and Mick Garcia ¡ played splendidly on Saturday. Young Jago scored a splendid try, i and as the season goes on should be one of the best three-quarters in the colony. \ Garcia played the proper game for a halt-back, worked his scrum well, and passed ont to the five eights, his tackling, too, was splen- did, and to see a little midget fetching men like Calls, Leggo, and Bennett down, was most amusing. # * # Ted Colls has his Pirate team bard at work training every even- ing, and intends making things hum properly for their opponents from this ont. * * * The Sydn...

PUBLIC POUND FEES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

PUBLIC POUND FEES. Sir,-Why is it that those in charge of our public pounds can carry on what in my estimation is very questionableand also illegal ? According to the Trespass Act of W.A. both the keeper of a public pound, and also the charges, are bound to be gazetted, and the charges ex- hibited in some public place, such as the local courthouse, and the animals unclaimed advertised according to law, in two papers of three insertions in each. In the year 1882, and in Gazette No. 50. the charges are as follows : Impoundage fees per head, ls. up to 6ix head, and hay fees after that number; sustenance fees for 24 hours, ls. 6d. per head, and half fees for 12 hours. These are the legal fees that can be charged according to the Statutes of this colony for such public pounds as Perth, unless others are properly gazetted. But what do we see being done in our midst illegally ? Animal« sold without being properly ad- vertised. Take the instance of cow and calf impounded May 4, sold May 23 ...

IS IT TRUE: [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

IS IT TRUE: That tiie work of extending the Go- vernment Jetty at Fremantle recently contracted has proved practically a failure? That over 200 piles have been drawn? That some of these are only four feet deep in the ground ? That the design of dredging five or six feet deeper near the North Mole has bad to be abandoned ? That this was because of undermining some of the retaining piles ? That these had only penetrated the sand to very shallow depths ? That nobody in particular is responsible for this bungling waste ? That these were not the reasons why a certain inspector was suspended ? That whereas the new slip is only 150 feet long the very dredges intended to be repaired in it are over 170 feet long? That it is intended to saw off the odd 30 feet? That charges of cruelty were a short time ago laid against a prominent official of the Fremantle Lunatic Asy- lum? That sticking pins into imbeciles is one of the " modes of treatment ?" That charges laid so far back as last December h...

FOOTBALL. FREMANTLE v. WEST PFRTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

FOOTBALL. FREMANTLE v. WEST PFRTH. From the bonnee of the ball West Perth worked the oyal towards the Fremantle goal, which was at the pavilion end. Mee long marking on the part of the Fremantle players worked the sphere to the other end of the ground, and, Haestric securing, kicked first goal for the seasiders. For some time the play was in the vicinity of the West Perth goal, and another kick by Haestric was almost productive of half a dozen more points being added, the ball hitting the post. After the kick-off of the ball Jones secured a free kick immediately in front of the Fre- mantle goal, but a behind only resulted. Kicked off again, the ball was worked towards the other end of the ground, and a Fremantle man secured another goal with a running kick. Another goal was added almost immediately' afterwards by Fay. The play at this point was extremely rough, and free kicks were being continually allowed by the umpire. Just before the bell lang for the quarter, Price, of the Frema...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, JUNE 12, 1898. THE RESIDENCE AREA QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN ^unbag Climes. SUNDAY, JUNE 12, 1898. THE RESIDENCE AREA QUESTION. Repeatedly in these ' columns have we warned the Government, and more particularly the Lands Department, that trouble in refer- ence to the residence areas on the goldfields is rapidly brewing, and that untold mischief will be worked unless the problem is in . telligently grasped and satis- factorily settled in a statesman- like manner. Article after article have appeared in our goldfields contemporaries, and mass meet- ings have been held at varions centres, bot all apparently without effect. The importance of these demonstrations has, as usual, "been minimized' by those blind leaders of the blind, the Perth daily press, and it is quite possible, under the circumstances, that the Ministry, like the coastal public, is quite unaware of the importance of the agitation now rapidly developing. Therefore it falls to oar lot, as usual, to pat the issues involved somewhat more clearly before our re- ders...

OUR HORRIBLE PENAL SYSTEM. STARTLING EXPOSURES. No. I.—THE FREMANTLE "WATER SUPPLY AND THE FREMANTLE PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

OUR HORRIBLE PENAL SYSTEM. STARTLING EXPOSURES. No. I.-THE FREMANTLE "WATÈB SUPPLY AND THE FREMANTLE PRISON. When an epidemic of any seri- óos disease, such as typhoid fever, makes its appearance in any com- munity the things looked to as the causes of its appearance and spread are first the water supply ; secondly, the milk supply ; and thirdly, the sanitation and dis- posal of the night soil. Seeing that the fever has not only made its appearance in Perth and Fremantle, but evi- dently has come to stay, and having both the time and oppor- tunity, the writer has token the trouble to thoroughly examine the sources of the water supply of the city of Fremantle, and has found that a most * alarming «tate of affairs exist in connection there- with ; and, also, that they exist within the foll knowledge of Go- vernment officials of such standing as almost to guarantee to the mind of the general pnblic that they conld not so exist. Upon enquiring from Fremantle residents the whereabouts of...

[?]enings From Home "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

(gitëtttttgs ftam frome. (BY "THE PLATGOEB.") " Jjeare off your damnable faces, and begin." Rickards' Tivoli Company has returned from the fields endowed with fresh vitality, and is now > stronger collectively than it has ever been, containing four of the strongest combinations the Perth people have ever seen at the same time-the Haytors trio, the Hu lines duo, the partners M'Kisson and Kearns, and the versatile extravaganza artists Hagan and Fraser. Added to this powerful collection, a varied show in itself, is Miss Jda Roslyn, a fascinating serio-comic, and our old favourites Dave Caston, Will. Stevens, Syd. Deane, and Miss Addie Place. # * * On the opening night the Hay tors immediately established them- selves prime favourites with the audience, which, by the way, was a large and critical one. Their business is entirely new to Perthites, and their English and Eastern reputation has been fully endorsed here. From the opening of their sketch ? " Fun on an Island," merriment and...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. BY "VOX." Some impartial inspection of public works outside of the Public Works Department is evidently badly needed. Letters reach me from all parts of the colony telling tales of gross extravagance, often coupled with inefficiency and dishonesty. I am credibly in- formed that at Mundaring, the scene of the Coolgardie Water Works, there are more officers em- ployed than men, and that money is being wasted wholesale. Prom Fremantle comes the statement that 200 piles recently drawn ont of a lately completed contract were found to be sunk only two feet in the sand, and it is also asserted that dredging near the North Mole has bad to cease on account of the piles there being in like condition. From all over the country come tales of likje import. These things seem to me to indi- cate that either the manage- ment of the Public Works Depart- ment is outrageously bad, or that weare blessed with an unusually large and varied assortment of liât s in this land of ours. # # #...

THE GREAT TIMBER CONCESSIONS. CRIPPLING SETTLEMENT. ENSLAVING WORKERS. MONOPOLY AND TRUCKING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

THE GREAT TIMBER CONCESSIONS. CRIPPLING SETTLEMENT. ENSLAVING WORKERS. MONOPOLY AND TRUCKING. (BY "JARRAH.") In considering the great timber businesses of the colony as a national asset, second only in im- portance to the gold-mining in- dustry, sight seems to have been entirely lost of the menace the vast concessions with their limit- less privileges and licenses con- stitute to the commonwealth, forming, as each one does, an Imperium in imperio, with the powers and immunities almost of an independent State, governed either by the will of a dictator or the caprice of an absolute and arbitrary triumvirate of directors, whose obedient subjects the working man and his family must immediately become on entering the position of employees, at peril of instant dismissal should any spirit of independence or exer- cise of ordinary civil rights be shown. * * * , The special timber concessions granted to some half-dozen parties about 20 years ago cover about half a million acres of karri and ...

THE UNEMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

THE UNEMPLOYED. Sir,-Allow me tfirough the columns -of your valuable paper to express a grievance that affects a very large pro- portion of the population of the " Land ?of Promise/' W.A. Day after day letters appear in the daily papers of the bona fide unemployed in Western Australia. I trust, sir, you will insert this from a wife of one of the unem- ployed, whose husband, though anxi- ously looking for work from early morning till late at night, cannot even get sufficient to supply food for his family. Independent of my own . case I could prove to you several other cases not three mileB from the city of Perth who are even worse off than onr -ourselves, and I think, though a woman with no voice in the affairs of this country, that it is fully time the Go- vernment ceased giving its "careful consideration" any longer and grasped the situation at once and did something to alleviate the distress and suffering that now exists.

THROUGH A WOMAN'S "PINCE-NEZ." (BY SYLVIA.) Two very striking dresses were worn by Maggie Moore in "Trilby." Both were empire fashioned. The first consisted of a rich broché, draped with a testare, in which jewelled trimming figured promi- nently. The second gown was of j a lovely Duchessé satin, hand- somely ornamented with jewels and with a magnificent diamond coronet attached completed, in my estimation,one of the most brilliant toilettes yet witnessed by a Perth audience. * * * Through the courtesy of one of oar large wholesale houses differ- ent patterns of the materials (just received) to be worn during the coming spring season have been sent to me.

YACHTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898

YACHTING NOTES, (Br " FLYING JIB." Practically the yachting season is ended, and it has been without doubt the most successful in the history of the colony.

The young club were confronted with the usual difficulties, princi- pally financial, but they proved equal to the occasion, paid all their liabilities promptly, and have a balance on hand to start with next season. The trophy committee worked like Trojans, and saved the club -many pounds. The functions of the committee are, to say the least, the reverse of pleasant, and they generally receive little thanks for their services. In Mr. Stone the club possesses one of the best secretaries I have ever known ; courteous,...
