"A VERY SOOTHING SYRUP." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
"A VEEY SOOTHING SYRUP." By a late English mail we were favoured with a communication from a London firm, in the shape of a sheet containing a series of marvellous yarns relative to the efficacy of a compound known as " Mother Seigel's Syrup." An order, expressly setting forth how and wheo, these yarns were to appear, was enclosed, signed for one year, for which the handsome sum of J66 10s. was to be paid, which works out at exactly 2s. 6d. per insertion for an advertisement which would occupy nearly three quar- ters of a column. We understand that this is a common dodge of the enter- prising firm, and we are therefore pleased to publish our manager'^ re- ply : SUNDAY TOTES Office, Perth, June 18,1898. Messrs. Clarke, Son, and Platt. Sirs,-Your communication with re- ference to Seigel's Syrup, dated May 18, '98, has just reached this office. Our space commands easily 3s. 6d. per inch ; consequently, I need scarcely in- form you that your offer of 2s. 6d\ for the insertion of an adve...

BUGBY FOOTBALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
BUGBY FOOTBALL NOTES. The Sydneys held their usual general meeting last Monday night at the Miner's Arms Hotel, and there was a good attendance of members. Several new members were elected. It is pleasing to note that the Bugby game is finding more favour with the public in this colony, and it is to be hoped that the feeling will grow stronger. There are several clubs on the fields, and two or three at Bunbury ; while we have three in Perth, and one in Fremantle.

BOXING. THE SAME OLD GAME. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
BOXING THE SAME OLD GAME. The Sydney Daily Telegraph says: The boxing contest for the lightweight championship of Australia and .£100 in stake money, which took place at the Victoria Hall, Melbourne, on the night of the 12th inst., between "Herb" McKell and "Jim*" Barron, of New South Wales, seems to have been something in the nature of a farce. A very large number of onlook- ers were present, and the "gate" reached close upon ¿£108. Matters were rather lively during the first four rounds, but after this the pair kept as far away from each other as possible, though " mik- ing it" in a half-hearted fashion every now and again, to the accompani- ment of hoots and jeers from the dis- gusted specators, wno clamored to have their money returned. The men ceased ! operations at the end of the 20th round without any decision being given, and afterwards agreed to a draw, despite the fact that their compact provided for a " finish " contest. In the little fight- ing that took place, Barron is...
WORLD OF WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
WORLD OF WHEELS. (BY " WANDERER.") We notice that a goodly number of Pertii ladies are now riding highly geared "bikes," in the hope probably that they look more graceful on a seventy than a sixty-four machine. If, however, there is any truth in the asser- tion that cycling fatigues the gentle daughters of Eve to the detriment of home duties, we should advise a return to the lower gear, as the work of hill climbing especially is greatly increased when the rider has a high gear to con- tend with. * # * It is asserted that a solid tyre, superior to the best sort of pneumatic now on the market, will soon be on sale. * * * A cyclist riding along Rodney Road, Walworth (Eng.), met with a curious accident a short time ago, says Sketch. Be suddenly found himself caught round the throat by a string, and was thrown from his machine, suffering considerable injury. Under the im- pression that the strm?" had been stretched across the ro id by some ma- licious person for the purpose of catch- ing...
FREMANTLE IMPERIALS V. GUILDFORD. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
FREMANTLE IMPERIALS V. GUILDFORD. Won by Fremantle by 5 goals 5 be- hinds, the score at the close being : Imperials, 10 goals 15 behinds ; Guild- ford, 5 goals IO behinds. For the win- ners Annois (6), Roberts (2), McCall, and Windsor (1 each) were the goal, kickers. For Guildford, Talley (3;, Barker, and Hardy secured one each.
FOOTBALL. ROVERS V. WEST PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
FOOTBALL. ROVERS V. WEST PERTH. Play commenced at about 3 o'clock, West Perth kicking towards the west. End to end play ensued for some time, Hussey, Johnson, Geddes, Tredennick, Gibson.Morgau and Grecian playing the most brilliantly. The sphere was event- ually forced down to the eastern goal where Jones secured, and a hot scrimm- age in front eventuated in the Rovers being awarded a free kic k. Loel next got possession in front, and put up number one to the credit of the red and blue. Set going again, the oval soon got up to the West Perth's citadel, where Gleeson punted it through by a flying shot. Almost immediately after, Wat- son gained possession, and sent up number twe for the orange and black. The ball now travelled to the other end, where Bell equalised affairs by finding the centre of the sticks again for West Perth. The game now stood two goals each. For some time after this the Rovers' goal was savagely assailed, and two points scored. Hamott, however, playing back, gal...
NORWOOD ALBERTS V. MIDLAND JUNCTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
NORWOOD ALBERTS V. MIDLAND JUNCTION. A splendid game for the first three quarters, the play being fast and very even. In the last quarter the Norwood's superior stamina stood them in good stead, and they repeatedly scored, the score at the close being-Norwood Al- berts, 7 goals 14 behinds ; Midland Junction, 3 goals 5 behinds. Browne kicked three goals, and Stevens, Murphy, Peterson, and E. Murphy one each for the winners.
BILLIARDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
BILLIARDS The London correspondent of the Sydney Daily Telegraph says:-"Those * smart billiardists, Charles Dawson, of ^flB^rt Huddersfield, and J. P Mannock, left ^^^U for Sydney by the Ormuz. After stay- ^^^^^H ing ia the harbour city; for a few days, ^9^^^ they will cross to New Zealand, -where / they have booked a three weeks' tour, / on completing which they will return to Australia and play exhibition matches in the principal cities. From Aus- tralia it is their intention to go to Colombo, and thence to Bombay and Calcutta, in both of which places they have engagements to fulfil. The players are expected back iu November, and on his return Dawson intends to challenge the world for a spot and push barred match on level terms." Perth exponents and lovers of the game would do well to endeavour to arrange for these crack players coming on to Perth when en route to Colombo. This could easily be arranged if the matter were at once taken in hand, and the exhibition of play would doub...

TURF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
TURF NOTES. (BY "THE YOUNG 'UN.") ! With at least two gentlemen on the committee of the W.A. Turf Club who have the interests of the goldfields at heart, the racing clubs on the fields get their share of fair play in all directions and the applications of the Kalgoorlie and Kanowna Bacing Clubs for dates for their August Cup meetings, which came before the committee on Monday night last, were reasonably dealt with. The Kalgoorlie Club was allotted August 18 and 20, and the Kanowna Club August 24. * * * The goldfields race meetings have been the mise en scene of the debut of more than one imported prad. Ger- maine, Sangor, Blackwood, and others, te wit, and if rumour doesn't mislead me, it is not unlikely that the recently imported First Mate will sport silk for the first time in this colony at the Cool- gardie meeting in August next. Then, too, more than one owner has a commis- sion in the hands of men on the other side for the purchase of a good handi- cap horse, and these will lik...

That the Stock Department of thif colony as at present constituted ù only an expensive farce ? "That the inspection of .stock at Owen'i Anchorage is bad ?

[?]enings From Home. Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
tâifttttitgs ÎT0m Uonw. i --- (BY "THE PLAYGOER.") Leave off your damnable faces, and begin.". Wilson Barrett's season at the Theatre Boyal bids fair to be a highly successful one throughout, and were it for no other reason than simply to see the man who, at one time, was looked upon, and spoken of as Irving's only rival in legitimate drama, packed houses would be assured, solely to satisfy the cravings of curiosity. It is many years ago that, as Wilfred Den- ver, the original " Silver King," Wilson Barrett established a reputation as a sterling actor, his ''Claudian" em phasied this, his "Hamlet" provoked con- troversy, and "The Sign of the Cross," which he produced for the first time not three years back, has kept him well in the foremost ranks of his profession. " The Manxman," which was produced ' on Wednesday and Thursday night is the only drama I can treat this week, and as the novel of that name is so well known, it is unnecessary to dwell on the plot which concerns the chief...
PITH OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
PITH OF PARLIAMENT. BY "THE MAN IN TEE STBEET." " AU flesh is grass." We hare it on Biblical authority, and it is equally true in practical everyday life that "all grass is flesh," and where there is very little grass there is very little flesh. This last fact applies to Western Australia, and the member for the Swan when he said, on Tuesday night, during Hie debate on the Address-in Beply, that the employes on a large mine in Western Australia outnum- bered those employed in the pastoral industry throughout the colony, was well within the mark. There is not nearly as many white men employed in cattle raising in W. A. as there are on the Lake View Consols at the Boulder. * * * It seems that some members of the 'Ouse appear puzzled as to why a spur fine from Coolgardie to Bonnie Vale should be set donn as a necessary work in the speech. I don't say that I can alto- gether elucidate the mystery, but lean tell them something that may clear the atmosphere somewhat. There is situ- ated a...
PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. No. 21. To HARRY GREGORY, ESQ., MEMBER OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY FOR NORTH COLLGARDIE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. No. 21. To HABET GEBGORT, ESQ., MEMBER OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY FOB NORTH COOLGARDIE. ' Sir,-It is now some little time since I last assumed my pen to take note of the doings and vagaries of public men. You, sir, are but a very small public mau-a very minnow amidst the whales, and I should not condescend to note you now were it not that certain fragments of history require some little clearing up. I also wish you to clearly understand that I do not con- template making the slightest dis- paraging allusion to your personal character. At that the finger of scorn or censure has never been pointed, and, it is only fair to say that your deserved reputation as a " white man " and a " good fellow " went a long way toward making your calling: and election sure to the position which you now occupy. As a man none can cavil at you ; as a member of Parliament yon are one of the most curious anomalies and extra- ordinary freaks of nature ever seen, made or invent...
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, JUNE 20, 1898. A RASCALLY RAILWAY POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
TH E WE ST AUSTRALIAN gíunbag Eiraes. SUNDAY, JUNE 2$» 1898. A RASCALLY RAILWAY POLICY. The commencement of the Parliamentary Cession has been marked by a debate which has hinged mainly upon the railway policy of the Government, and the ways and means, or lack of them, that it necessarily involves. To take the latter first, the Parliament of this colony is asked to pledge itself to a policy of borrowing in the remote fatnre-to so tie its own hands that in the future when our local Vogel wants to again borrow it will be compelled to consent, no matter what view it may take of the position at the time. As Parliament has already within the last two years author- ised the borrowing of £6,500,000 on inscribed stock and £5,000,000 on Treasury Bills it natur- ally objects to going any further for the present on the road to rain, and the more courageous and high principled | House of the two has shown its feelings by defeating the Govern- ment on the Address-in-Reply. Thus the first check h...
