OUR "CLOACA-MAXIMA." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
OUR "CLOACA-MAXIMA.' Whenever we wish for an opinion upon any subject we are not quite clear about we generally go and ask some other fellow, and the other fellow, not being particularly interested in the matter, answers in the manner that he thinks will be most pleasing to us. Then if his opinion coincides with ours, as it generally does, the embryotic idea becomes a confirmed fact. That is the reason why, whenever a soi-disant dis- tinguished visitor comes to these shores he is asked his opinion of the City of Perth. Then sacrificing truth upon tiie altar of courtesy the distin- guished visitor replies that it is one of the most beautiful cities he has overseen. He talks in glowing terms of the noble and beautiful Swan, ob- livious of the fact that its waters are only knee-deep, and its foreshores teem ; with disease germs. He speaks with raptare about the handsome public build- ings, and the clean and well-kept streets, and modestly expresses his sur- prise that we have reached s...

THE PARLLAMENTARY SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
THE PABjaAMEOTÄBX SESSION. Under the skilful hands of the work- men employed, the basement of Perth's only arcade has changed its nature as if it were by magic. A few weeks ago all that this large dreary underground space suggested was storage accommo- dation, and to-day frescoed walls greet the eye, innumerable many-coloured and quaint fashioned lamps hang suspended from the ceilings, while, as a woman would say, "cun- ning little tables" and comfortable lounges strengthen the impression which one gathers upon entering, that the proprietor of this Ahaj-míng resort has left nothing unthought of in regard to the convenience and comfort of the many frequenters of this delightful rendezvous.
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, JUNE 19, 1898. SUNDRY DEVELOPMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN guitfcag Hintes. SUNDAY, JUNE 19, 1898. SUNDRY DEVELOPMENTS. Those who are interested in seeing that a perfectly free and independent newspaper is main- tained in Perth will foe glad to learn that the SUNDAY TEMES has survived the immediate difficulties by which its progress has been beset, and that its business has so increased as to render farther capital outlay on the part of the proprietor unnecessary. Since the paper was taken over by Mr. Vosper it has enjoyed a most gratifying degree of success, and in these few short weeks has be- come a profitable enterprise. We believe it our duty to effect im- provements as our means permit, and it is therefore with unfeigned pleasure that we announce the present issue of the SUNDAY TEMES, in the twenty-seventh week of pub- lication, to be the second which appears on the same date, not only in Perth and Fremantle, but also at Kalgoorlie, Kanowna, Gool- I gardie, and Southern Gross. We refrained from making any special m...

IS IT TRUE: I That Sir John, when visiting the other 1 colonies, promised work for 5,000 pick and shovel men ? That the P.W.D. has paid hammer and drill men as little as la. per day at the Mundaring Weir? That the men quitted work ? That they then had to wait 10 or 12 days for the money due ? That tb ey were finally reinstated (some of them) at 8s? That business people at Mundaring have been waiting six weeks to have blocks of land allotted them ? That the Mundaring population is be- coming dense? That no sanitation has been provided ? That this will have a beneficial effect on the watershed ? That clearing the dam site has not been started yet ? That all this would be managed a dam- site better by Bargigli ? That the local storekeepers are being . bankrupted by departmental delays and humbug ? That a young man was stuck up in Newcastle-street, near Ellen-street, on Sunday last at ll p.m. by two men representing themselves as de- tectives ? That no arrest has yet been made in connec...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
CRICKET The Karrakatta, ball has come and gone, and Secretary Gouly has every reason to be satisfied, as the dance has proved the best public dance held this year. The committee of the Kats. were always energetic, and on this occasion were doubly so. Music good, floor splendid, and supper excellent, and every one satisfied-a thing not often seen or known at Perth dances. The Tiller ~sistets, four in number, will shortly come to the West to swell the Cremorne programme.
ROWING. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
ROWING. (BY "AN OLD 'UN.") " Take your tim J from me, boya." _ During the past week greater ac- tivity has been shown by the local crews who contemplate competing at the Fremantle regatta on June 28 ; but the rough and boisterous weather ex- perienced at the end of last week puta damper on the ardour of many of the competitors, and it clearly shows that this late period of the year is not at all snifeable for practising for rowing. But now that we have a few finer days on us, we may reasonably expect to see the crews showing greater enthusiasm for their training, though with only eight or nine days before the regatta, it does not give them any time to put the finishing touches on their very back- ward training. We can now definitely announce that the crews, especially from the Swan Bi ver Club and West Aus- tralian Club, for the senior races will be absentees. In the former club the more dangerous and exciting game of football is the attraction that has lured them away from their fi...

RUGBY RULES. The Pirate v. Sydney match was simply a practice for the Pirates, who won easily by 23 pointe to nfl. * * * Swans v. Fremantle match was wit- nessed by a large crowd of spectators, and much local barracking was the result. After a great go Swans won by 7 points to niL the same score as their match against the Pirates a fortnight ago. * * » Nipper Atkinson, although playing as well as ever he did, was too safely watched to do much harm, although Baird and bis combined play was worth going miles to see. * . * Frank Meares, who is playing three quarter for Fremantle, did some very useful work for the blue and white. * # * The Swans' back division played splendidly, the two Jagos, Goñly, Garcia, and Ducat playing well to- gether. * * « Ducat is a great acquisition to the Swans, he being a safe tackler and a great kick. * # # Sid.

BRITISH ASSOCIATION RULES. GARDINER CUP COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
BRITISH ASSOCIATION RULES. (TABDINER Cup COMPETITION. Folly 3000 people assembled at Went- worth Park to see the match between Volunteer and Balmain (last season's holders) for the Gardiner Cop. It was anticipated that Balmain would win, bot the result showed that they were outclassed. Volunteer won by seven goals to two, having now twice defeated Balmain by that score. Trenholm (3), C. White (2), Carey, and W. Banner scored for the winners, and Ferguson and I>ay for the losers. For the win- ners, Watson, Davis, Shaw, and Visella worked ably, as did Gibson for the losers. # ' * # Pyrmont Bangers and Granville Club played on the University Oval.

SYDNEY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
SYDNEY NOTES. After magnificent play on both sides, the match between the Wallaroos and the Randwicks resulted'in a draw; although just before the whistle sounded, Gardiner, the Wallaroos' full back, after a splendid run along touch, was brought down by Heulen just as he WRS crossing. Neither side managed to score. * * « Sydney and University also played a draw, although at half time Sydney led by six to three. At tibe commencement of the. second half, the Unis, quickly made the scores equal. Each side sub- sequently secured a try, but no goals resulted, and the game at finish stood at nine points all. # * # Thirty-six points to eight was the state of the poll at the close of the Pirates v. Paddington match. It was a most one-sided game from the start, j the score at half-time being 15 to 3, j and during the last half the Pirates added no less than 21 points to their credit. The Pirate forward established something like a record, as he kicked seven goals, of which six were from trie...
VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. The raia on Jane 4 made bat little difference in the attendance at East Melbourne, when the Essendon men met the Melbourne team, and those who paid to see the game got their money's worth, for the play was mag- nificent from start to finish. Daring the first half play was very even, but in the third quarter the Essendon boys secured the advantage of 15 points to the good, the scores being-Essendon, 38; Melbourne, 23. The Melbournians had lost heart, and during the last quarter Essendon secured an additional 10 points, the score at the close being Essendon, 48 points; Melbourne, 23. * * # South Melbourne simply romped over the representatives of St. Kilda, the last-named team apparently having a number of passengers in its ranks. * # # After beating South Melbourne au I pushing the Geelong boys very hard it was anticipated that Carlton would make a good fight against the Colling- wood representatives, but those whose hopes lay in this direction were doomed to disa...
SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
SPORTING NOTES. (ihr " THE YOUNG 'UN.") Handrail Smith's handicaps for Can- ning Park, June 28, meeting are being criticised very favourably in the down- town sporting resorts. There are no winners sticking out several feet, as in previous lists of weights he has framed. * # * Opinions are divided as to deserts of the Victory and Clipper parties in escaping scot free over the Canning Park enquiries. Some declare they were deserving of disqualification ; others aver that they were done an injustice in being had up at alL Vic- tory's running, on the face of it, looked off, but the enquiry elicited nothing to warrant the «onviction of his party. The Clipper case wasn't any way glaring. * # * The chestnut of the hour, the crack- ing of which is not an easy job-Who will be the first Stipendiary Steward appointed by the W.A.T.C.?
