FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
FROM DAY TO DAY. (Bx "Vox.") When a Government undertakes to engineer the earth, and to hitch the gyrating spheres ont back of the solar system on to its hind wheels for brakes, and generally to take the direction of the universe off the hands of the crea- tor, and proposes to become as vigorous and as masterful, and as far-reaching as a gallon of shi-poo taken fasting, then it frequently follows that the ordinary fallible person who only wears one pair of pants at a time, has a clumsy habit of rising to his feet and asking rude and unseemly questions. * * * Thus Jack Smith and Co., write very anxiously to learn who is going to con- trol the goldfields water supply scheme, and what the controller's credentials amount to. The urey matter of Jack Smith and Co's brain cells retain indelible impressions of Lesseps, and of Xerxes, of Speight and of Pharaoh, of Ages and of Arguses, and of Allison Smith, and of Tarcoola, and they feel that any more national debaucheries would b rin¿? on lo...
THROUGH A WOMAN'S "PINCE-NEZ." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
THROUGH A WOMAN'S "PINCE-NEZ." (BY " STXVIA-") Theatre parties in Perth, during the Wilson Barrett season, are quite comme il faut. The Mayor gave one on Friday night, and one noticeable amongst the Mayor's set was Mrs. Moorhead, who looked very "apart" in an exquisite theatre bodice. The fabric diverged in colour from the softest tint in rose pink, to a delicate shade of sky blue, the whole being elaborately trimmed with rich silk cream Maltese bice. * * * The new skirt, becoming slowly familiar, embraces just upon double the amount of stuff the lighter-fitting one of last year demanded. # # * Miss Maud Jeffries, of Wilson-Barrett fame, bears the reputation off the stage of being a most graceful " poser." So beautiful a woman must needs have her detractors, and these say that all attitudes indulged in by this clever actress is the result of long and steady study on her part-which statement, after all, only enhances her title to admiration as an artist. # * . # You may change the "t...
ROWING. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
ROWING. (Br "AN OM> TJN.") "Take your time from me, boys." With the better weather that has prevailed for the past 10 days, rowing men have been showing greater signs of activity, and more life has been ex- hibited than for the past month. The regatta crews have emerged from their retirement, and have been fairly regular in attendance, and nu doubt, as the regatta is so close at hand, great eagerness will be shown to make the most of the few final rows that com- petitors will be able to have. * # # The postponed Fremantle Segatta will, it is to be hoped, be satisfactorily brought off next Tuesday, on the usual course, from Becky Bay, finishing at the old Fremantle bridge, a distance of a full mile. It is the wish of all that good weather may prevail on this occasion, and that no further postponement will be necessary. The committee are leaving no stone unturned to make matters comfortable both for spectators and competitors; and, given fine weather, a very fair afternoon's rowing...

THE FEDERAL QUESTION. FROM THE WESTRALIAN STANDPOINT. IV. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
THE FEDERAL QUESTION. FROM THE WESTRALIAN STANDPOINT. (WRITTEN FOR THE " KALGOORLIE MTUER/' BY F. C. B. VOSPER, M.L.A.) rv. I have already made some allusion to the value of federation as the only means of establishing an intelligent and effective means of defence. It now romains for me to enlarge upon this phase of the question to the extent which its vital importance renders im- perative. I may lay down with the certainty of an infallible that Australia cannot be defended unless we nave one central authority over mili- tary and naval affairs. It has been suggested that we might establish a system of federaHsed defence without also erecting a central government. This is an absolute impossibility. A divided control of five distinct Govern- ments over the military chief would either condemn him to impotence or make of him an irresponsible despot. If the Parliaments of the different colonies were continually interfering with this officer, he would be far more ornamental than useful; w...

BRITISH ASSOCIATION BULES. j KERB. CUP. j Volunteer beat Pyrmont Bangers on the University Oval, in the presence of i about 1200 spectators, by 4 goals to 2. ; At half time the Bangers led by 2 goals j to nil, but fell to pieces in the second, and Volunteer scored rather a lucky win. Trenholm scored 2 goals, and Carey and W. Banner 1 each for Volun- teers ; while 6. and A.

ASSOCIATION RULES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
ASSOCIATION BULES. Port Melbourne had the honour of lowering the colours of the hitherto un- beaten Footscray. Three gaols three points to one goal, was the result of the first quarter, Footscray having the advantage. With the change, however, the Ports showed their mettle, and in Beven snaps scored six goals, and at half time led by seven goals one behind to three go ils three behinds. In the third quarter, albeit the wind was with them, the Footscrays only succeeded in obtaining three behinds, whilst in the last quarter the Po'ts wound up hy ob- taining two goals seven behinds to nil, and the game ended-Ports, 62 points ; Footscray, 24. * * * Sichmond had an easy win against North Melbourne. This is the first victory for Richmond, and their play was of such a high order that specta- tors could hardly credit that hitherto they have experienced nothing but de- feat. They succeeded in scoring time after time by brilliant play, and at close of game the scores were-Rich- mond, 75 point...
W.A.C.C ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
W.A.C.C ANNUAL MEETING. On the Association Cricket Ground on Wednesday afternoon the above club, after two postponements, held their second day's racing. The track, although a glorious sun shone on it, was very heavy, and competitors in the long races had their work cut out. Not more than 400 people assembled to wit- ness the meet, which from every point of view was an absolute failure. Al- though some of the finishes were close, j the scratch men in more than one event were completely out of the " fun," and gave in after a couple of laps. Boring was common, and unnoticed by the officials. The swearing and cursing of competitors at one another, at officials, and the League generally was quite unchecked, notwithstanding the pre- sence of ladies (not many, cer- tainly; at which we don't wonder.) Until such disgraceful conduct is stopped, and competitors are taught to respect the officials, or the officials learn to respect themselves, cycling meetings in W.A. will never be suc- cessfu...
MELBOURNE JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
MELBOURNE JOTTINGS. The defeat of the Essendon players by Geelong is a matter for congratula- tion so far as the premiership matches in Victoria are concerned. Up to last Saturday Essendon had an unbeaten record, and the coveted premiership was by many looked upon as a foregone conclusion, but the victory of Geelong fetches the Essendon team on a level -with Fitzroy, Geelong coming next, and Melbourne, Collingwood, and South Melbourne all within range, and with equal chances, so far as points serve to indicate, of obtaining the proud distinc- tion of premier club. * * * An immense crowd visited Geelong to witness the match between the local men and the Essendon players, and the .crowd was well repaid, as the game was -one of the finest and hardest fought that has been witnessed for years past. Scientific football characterised the game from start to finish, the first -quarter resulting in Essendon obtain- ing 2 goals, Geelong 1 goal 2 behinds, and half-time showed the visitors 7 poi...
OLD TIME PRIZE RING BATTLES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
OLD TIME PRIZE RING BATTLES. For the benefit of oar sporting friends we purpose publishing each week an account of one of the famous battles of the prize ring. This week we publish No. 1 of the series, the great fight be- tween Jem Mace and Joe Goss : Although the contest between Jem Mace and Joe Goss was not for the championship, yet, as the actual cham- pion was engaged in it, and as it was known that if Goss won the road would be clear for him, considerable interest was felt in the result. The magnitude of the stakes also gave an importance to the affair, as the hattie money was no less than ¿31,000-Mace staking J8600 to ¿1400. It was not, however, till near the day of fighting that any real interest was taken in .the match, as the conditions under which it had come to maturity were very curious. The affair came off on September 1, 1863, but the match had been made so long before as December, 1862, and the interval of nine months was regarded as unbusinesslike, especially when it...

MEN OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 June 1898
MEN OF AUSTRALIA. Men of all tbe lands Australian from the Gulf to Derwent Biver, From the Heads of Sydney Harbour to the waters of the' West. There's a spirit loudly calling where the saplings dip and quiver, Wheivi the city crowds are thronging, and the range uplifts its crest! Do ye f*»el the holy fervour of a new- born exultation ? For the task the Lord has set us is a trust of noblest pride We are named to march unblooded to the winning of a nation, And to crown her with a : glory that may evermore abide. Have ye loofevd to great old nations, have ye wondered as their mak- ing, Seen their fair and gracious cities, gemmed with palaces of light. Felt the pulse of mighty engines beat- ing ever, never slaking. Like the sandalled feet of Progress moving onward in the night ? Can ye stand on some high headland when the drowsy day is fading, And in dreamlike fancy see a mer- -* chant fleet upon the seas, See the pinioned ships majestic 'gainst the purple even sailing, And the busy ste...
RIFLE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898
RIFLE SHOOTING. . The fifth competition for the cup in- stituted, by Lieutenant-Colonel Flem- ming, Commandant of the West Aus-s tralian Defence Forces, was won by the Permanent Artillery. Shooting dis- tances, 200, 500, and 600. Target, regulation pattern. ' Dr. ZiHmarin lectures this (Sunday) evening on " Otjfaello and Modern Social Conditions." This, apart from being a well-timed subject, should offer..good material for a popular lecture, especially as regards that arch-scoundrel Iago, who is the only fellow who succeeds in the play. On nobody in. particular Sis degradation is complete ; His name with loss of honour brand- ing, . ? ? When he in Parliament took bis seat, He literally lost his standing. mi
THEATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898
THEATRICAL NOTES. (Br "THE JOHNNIE.") - It is not generally known that Lionel Brough, before he took to the stage as a means of livelihood, was connected with newspaper work. And yet there is nothing strange in this. Many another journalist has finally played bis part .on the .boards after playing it on paper or papers. The Illustrated London News, the Daily Tele- graph, and the Morning Star each knew him in turn as a contributor, and it is now 43 years ago since the Telegraph first employed his energies. In 1859 he played in " The Forty Thieves " at the Lyceum. Then Alexander Hender- son, struck with his promise, introduced him to Glasgow and Liverpool, and here he had as companions Irving, Toole, Bancroft, Wigan, Clayton, Wyndham, and others whose names afterwards became distinguished. Covent Garden, The Gaiety, and St James' were the next theatres he played in, and his work in America and the colonies is too well known to recount. * * * In reply to an interviewer's " born an acto...

SWANS v. FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898
SWANS v. FBEMANTLE. This match was also played among the Esplanade ponds, and was very evenly contested. Considerable anx- iety was manifested by a number of the spectators, who were desirous to see the Fremantle boys win. The defeat of the Swans would have placed the Pirates in the lead. The game, how- ever, resulted in a draw, neither side scoring.
