Bo[?]ing Me[?]s. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898
Rowing Mems A rather novel, bnt unpleasant, to &nbsp; many, was the experience which befel the passengers that left Perth in the s.s. Manx Fairy on Monday last for a trip down the river to Osborne. On the return jonrney the steamer, with some 200 pas- sengers on board, ran aground on one of the many sand-spits that abound round Crawley Point, and, notwithstanding the efforts made to get her off, stuck hard and fast. A rowing boat was lowered, so that a portion of the crew could row to Perth for assistance ; but, like as in many other instances, it was found useless for the purpose, being deficient in the necessary fittings to enable them to row her. Anyway, information reached Perth, and the same company's s.s. Water Lily, a smaller steamer, with a less draught, reached the unfortunates, when a speedy em- barkation took place, Perth being reached at 7 o'clock on Tuesday morning. The captain and officers ren- &nbsp; dered all the assistance and aid possible to the pas...

AT THE WICKETS. LATEST CRICKET CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898
AT THE WICKETS. LATEST CRICKET CHAT. The Southern District's team left for Perth by the 4.45 train from Bunbury on Saturday. I regret to learn, however, that the team will be one or two men short. This is a pity, as it means a weak team and, probably, an unsatisfactory tour. I must differ with my friend " Long On," of the West Australian, when he says, as he does in Satur- day's issue, that the M.C.C. are in financial trouble owing to "the expenditure incurred in maintaining so many junior elevens." I was present at the meeting of the club last Thurs- day week, when ways and means were discussed, and I never heard this, or in fact any, reason advanced. The club has had a deficit, which has slowly but surely increased year after year, owing to slackness of managemement and nothing more. The Juniors cost no more than any other team-in fact not so much, as they get the last "choice" of material, while they pay exactly the same sub. I should not have referred to this matter at aU, as I ...
CRICKET GELEBRITIES. No. IV. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898
I CRICKET GEIrEBRITIES. No. IV. MR. JAMES GARDINER, CHAIRMAN OF THE CRICKET COUNCIL. The above excellent likeness of the popular and energetic manager ¡ for Messrs. Gordon and-Gotch will be recognised at once. Mr. Gardiner is the living emboi' >ient of enthusiasm, and whether it is business or pleasure he throws h -¡elf into the matter of the moment with a '* go" and intelligence rarei. . fou il in the sunny, salubrous South. A New Zealander born and bred, he has resided in most of the colonies in turn, and he came to the West in 1895. Since he has been here he has made his mark in the athletic world, and is known as one of the best and most sportsmanlike workers in that great Australian sphere. He is, with the exceptions of W. Duffy and Vere Harris, the best field in the colony ; a good, fast bowler, who keeps a good length, and a bats- man of considerable ability, while for knowledge of the game and its laws he has few equals. His cricketing exploits include the following : Fir...

LOCAL CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898
LOCAL CBICKET. When this appears in print, a nnmner of matches which have | foeen left in a half-finished state will have been completed in the senior and first jnnior ranks. The long gap between 18th December, 1897, and January, 1898, has been left practically unbridged in the local cricket world, but with the matches still left on the cards of the three associations, and with the conntry week now rapidly ap- proaching, we have still the best half of the season before us. So there is plenty of time to make or lose a good average before stumps are drawn for the last time, some- where about the end of April next. I should b*> greatly obliged if junior captains or secretaries would let me have anything of in- terest in connection with their clubs. Also if they would leave results of matches or of the day's play at- the SUKDAT TIMES office, î*t. George's Terrace, before half past six every Saturday afternoon. tr- is, of course, quite impossible for one man to be in twenty places at ...

A FUNNY OLD MAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898
A FUNNY OLD MAN. President Kroger is developing a rich vein of hnmonr which will presently threaten the prosperity of the English comic papers. His latest freak is to decline to extend the franchise to those English or German outlanders wno have been married in their own countries. What does he mean to do about those who are not married at all -about those who have ran away with other men's wives, and those whose wives are noto- riously possessed only of brevet rank. Mr. Kruger is really too funny for anything. Only yesterday he was quarrelling with the other old gentleman who aspires to the. presidency of the Transvaal on à point of order as to who should first produce his programme of reform, and the day before that he affected to be seriously angry at the bare idea of the election of Dr. Jim to the the Parliament of Cape Colony What can it matter to him who is elected to the Parliament of any British colony, and what does he think his opinion matters to any- one outside his domin...
RACING CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898
RACING CHAT. It is quite unnecessary to gild refined gold, or to again go over the old ground about tbe recent meeting of tbe W. A T.C. Suflice it to say that it was the public's day out, and all the favorites won. Consequently tbe bookies fell in pretty badly-not, of course, nearly so badly as they say, but still they bad to disgorge the major part of the Gaulas' skinner " over the Melbourne Cup. One prominent metallician (who the Dickens invented such a scientific term ?) ?got so full up of it after Cup day t at he cancelled all his bete on the third day of the meeting, and sailed with a light pocket and a heavy heart for the East. His last words were, "It beats me. Over Hie other side we have favourites that never win. Here, by gum, you've got favourites that can't lose!" Vale! * * * As the first to tip the Derby and Cup winners, I could claim that all others were imitators, but I will be magnanimous, and content myself with saying that it always pays to follow a good man-whether...

MISSING WORD COMPETITION TO THE READERS OF THE SUNDAY TIMES. The proprietors of the SUNDAY TIMES, in response to many re- quests and suggestions, have decided 'to initiate a series of the MISSING WOBD COMPETITIONS, which are so popular in England. These competitions will be conducted under c mditions of absolute fairness and secrecy. Every week, in a specified part of the paper, will appear a paragraph, selected by the Editor, complete, with the exception of a single word. This word will be written on a slip of paper and placed by the Editor in his private safe. He alone will know the word, and no one else can possibly obtaia knowledge thereof. Each competitor must fill in the coupon with what he or she thinks is the missing word, cutting it out from the paper, and enclosing it with a postal order for One Shilling.
