CORRESPONDENCE. THE GRADUAL EXTINCTION OF PROTECTION. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

CORRESPONDENCE, THE GRADUAL EXTINCTION OF PROTECTION. (To THE EDTTOB.) Sir,-Your article " Is Protection a Dying Creed," is interesting and op- portune. The old interminable con- troversy-Protection or Freetrade-has broken somewhat into new ground since Henry George put his hand to the plough, but Sir IL Giffen does not seem to get away from the old ruts. For instance:-"Another generation or two will probably see the last . protectionist politician, notonly in Eng- land, but throughout the world. The breed, I am confident, is very nearly extinct, because the modern atmos- phere and conditions, not theory, are making the policy next to to impossible." Perhaps so, but we have seen this sort of prophesy before, and have also seen it remain unfulfilled. One Cobden gave, I think, 20 years as the period necessary to establish world- wide freetrade. Something like three times 20 years have gone, and free trade still lags on the way. Giffen " would have not only free trade between the colon...

[?]enings From Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

1 ßtotmtgs ytam Honte. (BY "THE PLAYGOER.") "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." The Boyal Comic Opera bid farewell to Perth this week, and have given its inhabitante a final treat, in the perform- ance of the "Gondoliers," which has proved in all respects as satisfactory to both the management and the public as the best of those that preceded it. The " Gondoliers " has justly earned the reputation of being one of the prettiest of operas, and the firm have staged it in Perth in a man- ner which is quite in keeping with their high reputation. The dresses, scenery, and orchestral and chorus music are as nearly perfect as we are ever like to see and hear them in this vale of tear?, and the leading parts have been taken in a manner in accordance with the expectations the name of the company leads the public to form, and which has enhanced the excellent reputation the performers have made for themselves in this colony. * * # Dealing with these in detail, it is universally acknowle...

THE FEDERAL QUESTION. FROM THE WESTRALIAN STANDPOINT. (WRITTEN FOR THE "KALGOORLIE MINER," BY F. C. B. VOSPER, M.L.A.) III. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

THE FEDERAL QUESTION. FROM THE WESTRALIAN STANDPOINT. (WHITTEN FOB THE " KAJWOORLIE MINER," BY F. C. B. VOSPER, ML.A.) UL There exists an ill-defined fear that the cost of federation may possibly ¥exceed the amounts calculated by the Convention. Even if this were certain I should not, speaking for myself, be any the less a Nationalist, for I feel that for so great an achievement as that of welding the Australian colonies together in the bond of national unity we should be willing to make far greater sacrifices than any we are now called upon to suffer. But the facts are alto ffpfihfr opposed to this view, as they arej to most anti-federal views. The new ' Commonwealth will have ample means of raising revenue without demanding any increase of the contributions paid by the various, States. Take, for ex- ample, the Federal capital. It is now generally agreed that none of the exist- ing coastal capitals will be chosen as the centre of Australian Government. None of these are sufficientl...

THROUGH A WOMAN'S "PINCE-NEZ." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

THROUGH A WOMAN'S " PINCE-NEZ." (BY " STÍVIA.") The opening of Parliament natur- ally suggested the pleasant gathering of the different clans, pretty toilettes, afternoon tea, and the social necessaries surrounding so important a function. The reality came in the shape of a ticket giving admittance to the ladies' gallery of the Assembly, only to watch the fag end of a ceremony, which bad its commencement in the sacred portals, jealously guarded by those who are known .amongst us as the "Honour- ables "-by Act of Parliament only. # # * Women of the " Fourth Estate " find all over the world "their rough places made plain." Not so, however, in the golden city of the West. I ventured to ask of a man great in authority for an admittance ticket, to witness the "entrance into work again" of those who rule the nation; but was solemnly informed that none but Members' wives were allowed to see the " show." "How can we help ourselves ? " my in- formant continued, "Members have sometimes so man...

FEDERATION AND THE FARME. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

FEDERATION AND THE FARMER Of all the colonies the workers of West Australis have most to gain by federation ; but West Australia is not governed by the workers. It is one of the " Wondrous sights the traveller sees, But the latest is the greatest Where the drones control the bees." The said drones, however, seeing that they are unable .personally to keep the bees in order, are offering them a bribe in the shape of so-called protection, lt is amusing to read some of the articles in the Perth press against federation. One day they will have none of it be- cause it would make W. A. a " dumping ground for the productions of our Eastern neighbours9'; or, in other words, cheap living, which we want. The next article opposes Federation because it would mean " a loss of Cus- toms revenue, and the substitution of a land and income, or simple land tax, which, also, we want. These are the vital points advanced against Federa- tion. To use these are its highest re- commendations. We are not adm...

THE LAST CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

THE LAST CLASS. Br ALPHONSE DATTDKT. On the morning of which I speak, I was very late in starting to school, and was in great fear of being scolded, since Monsieur Hamel had said that he would ask ns about the participles, and I didn't know a single word about them. For a moment the thought came to me to play truant, and take my way across the fields. The day was so warm, so clear! One could hear the blackbirds whistling on the edge of the wood, and the Prussians drilling in the meadow Rippert. All this was more attractive to me than the rule of the participles, but I bad strength to resist, and ran swiftly to- wards the school. In passing before the town-hall, I saw that some people were standing near the iron railing surrounding the bulletin board. For two years all our bad news, lost battles, requisitions, orders of the authorities, had been blazoned there; and as I passed with- out stopping I thought : " What can it be now?" Then, as I ran across the square, the blacksmith Wächt...

THE SIX MILE RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

THE SIX MILE BUSH. Things are all going briskly at the Six Mile, which the Herald reporter visited yesterday (Saturday) afternoon. Twelve claims are on payable gold, showing that the golden gutter extends over half-a-mile from the old Cinderella claim northwards. Christensen and party were the first to get on gold in quartz wash, at a depth of about 18ft., and a crushing of 10 tons put through Dwyer's battery went 2oz. to the ton. Biddle, Brown and Barry hold four mens' ground just north of this claim, and Menz and party have sunk a 52ft. shaft, which has bottomed on a ledge of wash. The reporter was shown some very beautiful specimens of auri- ferous pug and gold deposited in this material, which shows brilliant crystals in places. The stuff must be very rich. Above the wash a light coloured quartz occurs, and cement lies between that and the pug. It is just at the junction of these that the beststufiis obtained. No really defined gutter has at present been found, but auriferous pu...

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. Parliament was opened on Thursday last with the usual amount of fuss and feather. The West Australian Army was represented by 39 soldiers and some 17 officers and 4£ lbs. of gun- powder was fired from six popguns with loud reports like unto the bursting of a soda water bottle, and accompanied by the evolution of a smell like the concentrated quintessence of a Perth backyard. His Ex. was there arrayed in the Windsor uniform, which consists mainly of gold lace and knee breeches, while the majority of the members of both Houses wore the shiny hat of a blameless life. In the Assembly the galleries were packed, but the effect of the speeches delivered by the mover and seconder of the Address-in Beply, was that several people went to the door and demanded their money back. * * * The alleged Governor's Speech was a long and tiresome rigmarole, de- scribing how the Government had built a bridge over an imaginary river at Bungemup, and that a mud-scow was safely anchored ...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898

{ FROM DAY TO DAY. (BY "VOX.") The Perth dailies are now busily en- gaged in canvassing the recent extra- ordinary increase of crime in the city and port, and are all. rising violently off their chairs to express their astonish- j ment, and to vainly endeavour to find I out the cause of the trouble. Like most epidemics of a similar character, the present dangerous state of affairs owes its origin to causes arising from bad administration. One of these is that the penal authorities have in full operation a system which at once segre- gates and creates crime. A man, for example, is charged with drunkenness on the goldfields or with deserting from his hired service in the north. He is forthwith haled before the local magis- trate, and sentenced to a term of durance in Fremantle Gaol. As there is no classification of offen- ders in that terrestrial abode of the damned, he at once becomes a graduate in a first-class College of Crime. He mixes freely with old Imperial convicts and villain...
