MR. STEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

MR. STEAD. ON the day following the sentence on Mr, Stead tho Pall Mall Gazette states that the Rev. Benjamin Waugh was permitted by the courtesy of the Home Office ty hold half au hour's conversation with the prisoner on matters of business. Mr. Waugh was shown into the waiting-room, bare, barren, and forbidding, with a long deal table in the middle of the room, and bench-iike scats around it. There the visitor waited for a quarter of an hour, when he was taken upstairs to the visit> ingham, where the prisoner was already seatep. The visiting-room, it is suth . oient4 to say, is similar to the (¡rat, but with a better light. A warder sat in the pooitu, ' and Mr. Waugh sat at the other end of the table, for he was not allowed either* to shake hands with or otherwise : Welcome his friend. Mr. Stead wore a yellow Glengarry-shaped cap, of which he observed that it " was like the cap he wore when a boy, but that it was without the ribbons." Ho wore a loose-fitting short jacket of rou...

THE PEARLERS OF SHARKS BAY. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

THE PEARLERS OF SHARKS BAY. I FEOMTHE WEST AÜSTEAXLA.N] THE question brought to the notice* of His Excellency the GOVERNOR eau Tuesday last by the deputation from,. Shark's Bay is one of real importance.. Unfortunately our experience of they Gascoyne district has forced upon ust the conclusion that, unless the scien- tific development of irrigation open out possibilities now apparently non-exÍ8¿*> * tant, the lands in question will note support a population beyond that re- quired for the carrying on of pastoral pursuits. In these circumstances the fostering of the Sharks' Bay pearl shell fisheries is of the utmost conse- quence to the prosperity of the district, for these fisheries seem to be the only industry likely to attract any larg* number of worker« or destined to establish any considerable centra of working activity. We have* already had occasion to point out the causes now operating against the success of the pearlers. They have been obliged to depend for labour upon cool...

-w AlETBOPOMTAN CRICKET ChVB. The return match Married v. Single was played on Saturday afternoon, on the Recreation Ground. The bachelors were rather handicapped by having to play two men short, Hare and Glyde being un- j able, at the last moment, to take part in the match. They were also deprived of the services of Grundy, who was called away in the early part of the game. However, owing to the judicious manage- ment of the team by their captain (E. Sholl), backed up by smart fielding and good bowling, the " eligibles " fairly held their own, the match being drawn in their favor. In their first innings the bachelor* made 49 ; Sholl and Curtis, who tied with 12 runs each, Gmudy with 9, and Piper <uot ont) with 6, beiug the principal contributors. Stafford in this innings secured 4 wickets. for 22 mus, and Ranford 2 wickets for 10. The married men then took their turn at the wickets, but their reign was short.

EDWARDS versus TIME. VICTORY OF TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

EDWARDS versus TIME. VICTORY OF TIME. THE attempt of the Australian champion pndostriau to walk 120 miles io 26 hours proved unsuccessful. He began on Friday evening in splendid form, averaging for the first four hours a score of five niles au hour ; but from that point he began to fall off iu pace, and, early on Saturday, it was evident that he could not accomplish the task he had set himself. In order to cover the required distance it was necessary that he should average a little over 4$ miles an hour, without taking into consideration the time that he spent off the track when taking refreshment. From our report in Saturday's issue, it would be seen that np to midnight on Friday his score was 19 miles 16 Taps. This was very good going, iudeed, and had he been able to maintain it during the greater part of Saturday he would have more tlian performed the feat he had undertaken. But as the night wore on he began to show signs of distress unusual in a well trained man; he began t» jum...

He drank freely until 1847, and was then converted to total abstinence by a speech of Chapin's ; and in 1860 Willard Parker scared him so about tobacco that he has never smoked since.
