FOOTBALL. BY "BARBACXEB." [Secretaries of clubs wishing accounts of matches to appear in Saturday night's issue, should telephone or send results of matches not later than 5.30. Telephone, 78.] In the game Swan v. Pirates (Bugby) played last Saturday on the Esplanade, an open game was not the order of the day. Colls, Wooller, and Gorman played a splendid game.

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. Bx "THE MAN IN THE STBEET." The "centralisation cat" is ont of the bag. On Wednesday evening hon. members on the Government benches openly admitted that their antagonism to a railway being constructed from Esperance to Coolgardie lay in the fact that Perth and Fremantle would suffer thereby. Indeed, the " newest convert " who has gone to the penitent form-the member for Coolgardie mildly rebuked his chief with not being candid over the matter. As a matter of fact the Government now own that they object to construct the railway in question because they are aware that the harbour at Esperance is one of the best natural harbours in the world, and that the construction of a line from that port to Coolgardie or Kalgoorlie would mean the diversion of traffic and com- mercial carrying from Fremantle.. to.,w-í..*orf;-»o«í Esperance. In a word, the Government - recognise that the port of Esperance, is one"of the most important gates to the colony, and in view of the fact ...

Evenings From Home. Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898

täfctttttgs Jrorn from*. «BY "THE PJÙATGOBB.") Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." Years may elapse before the Theatre Soya! witnesses such a house as Wilson Barrett's production of "Claudian" drew together on Monday night last. Stalls, gallery, and circle were alike overtaxed, and that the audience ex- pected something altogether out of the common was shown by many suffering the inconvenience of standing rather than leaving the theatre. Be it said at once that the expectation was realised. " Claudian," a drama in three acts and a prologue, from the pen of W. G. Wells and Henry Herman, is a play which in time to come may probably be canonised as a classic, if only on account of its theme and the antiquity of the events which are supposed to give it origin. * * * The phrasing likewise bears a classic touch, call it wordy if you like ; for the periods are long drawn out, and there is a swinging metrical accompaniment as of heroic verse eminently suited to declamation. The prolo...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. (BY "VOX.") I have before me the report ot the Collector of Customs for the year end- j ing December 31, 1897, and it contains much that is of value to the student in political economy, so far as the actual figures are concerned ; but when ;£he report goes outside the collector's own particular province, and he " estimates " and gives his opinion as to the cause, or causes, of the depression and other difficulties wo at present labour under, he gets far beyond his depth. * * * - . It is the Collector's,business to col- lect the taxes and fees imposed by the Legislative branch of the Government, at the doorway of the colony. He is employed for that specific purpose, and his reports should deal with cold facts only, and leave those whose business it is to analyse reports and form deduc- tions to draw their own conclusions. But from the tone of the report one might suppose that the Government Actuary or some other apologist for the policy of the Premier had most to do ...

"ABSOLUTELY ROTTES." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898

" ABSOLUTELY ROTTES." Whee Mr. Winton was exhibit- ing his figures at Cremorne some little time back one of the favour- ite remarks of his automaton "McGinty " was to the effect that such and such a state of things was " absolutely rotten." Some such term is evidently applicable to those departments of the Go- vernment which particularly affect the more helpless portion of the community, and which we believe are under the control of the Colonial Secretary. Very recently a well-known citizen of Perth better known than trusted, by-the bye-said that the SUNDAY TIMES was a " scandalous rag.'* When asked wby he made snch a remark he replied ** Because it's always exposing abuses." Evidently this . person. has a well-founded and perfectly natural fear of ex-, .posares of every, kind.' We -take - pride is' the fact that we have done mach in the ex- posure ot the abuses which abound in our public institutions, and we hope to do a great deal more. It is, moreover, a further proof of the accu...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, JULY 3, 1898. THE NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN gmtidag jinxes. SUNDAY, JULY 3, 1898. THE NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION. The best Parliamentary object lesson yet furnished to tbe people of Western Australia has been af- forded by tbe recent debate on tbe amendment to the Address-in-Re ply, proposed by Mr. George .Leake. . Never in the history of Constitutional Government in this colony has debate assumed a higher tone, or been more replete with argumeut and fact, and it is universally admitted i hat all the eloquence, the arguments, the facts and the figures, were on the side of the Opposition. This ap- plies with equal force to the pro- ceedings in both Houses. The Opposition stands higher in the esteem of the country, and the Ministry in more awe of it, than ever before, and, despite the tech- nical Government victory of Wed- nesday last, the Opposition are really the victors, having achieved all they desired to accomplish, aud having also made a total and irremediable wreck of the Government policy. Whether the Mini...

TURF NOTES. (Br "THE YOUNG 'UN.'5) Mr. W. G. Townley is now secretary of the Coolgardie Sacing Club, and re- ported to be "the very man for the billet." The Coolgardie Cup, to be run om Saturday, August 13 next, second day of third annual Coolgardie meeting, will be worth 525 sovs. to the owner of the winner. A new era in goldfields racing has dawned. More purchases iu the East for the West. Bookmaker Bolger has bought the hurdle-racer Wild Bird.

OLD TIME PRIZE RING BATTLES. No 2.—TOM SAYERS AND THE TIPTON SLASHER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898

OLD TIME PRIZE RING BATTLES. No 2.-TOM SAYERS AND THE TIPTON SLASHER. In some respects this fight resembled one between Ben Cauntand Bendigo,that is to say, there was a wide difference in size between the two men, and it was considered the little one must be mad to venture on the apparently herculean task of encountering a mau so much heavier, taller, and, presumably, strongerthan himself. But from another point of view there was a gratifying contrast. For, unlike the shifty Bendigo, Tom Sayers, as we already know, was a pugilist of the most un- doubted pluck and gameness, and it was quite certain there was little chance of his going down without a blow, although he would most likely save himself all he could. Of Sayers' career previous to the battle we will speak at length on another occasion, so it will only be necessary to run over the antecedents of the Slasher. William Perry, better known as the Tipton Slasher, was born at the town in the Black Country from which he de- rived h...

KANOWNA. (BY TELEGRAPH.) KANOWNA, July 2. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 July 1898

KANOWNA. (BY TELEGRAPH.) KANOWNA, Joly 2. The developments at the end of the   north lead are perfectly astounding. A discovery of vital importance occurred yesterday morning, one which, happen- ing where it did, cannot be over-esti- mated. A strike was made fully 350 yards west of the well-known Italians' claim, thus adding almost a quarter of a mile in length to this leaad, the width of which is already described as enor- mous. The find was made at a depth of 93ft., some few feet below water level, in a quartz wash, the gold being both fine and coarse. Less than half a dish of this material produced fully a dwt. of shotty gold. Gingetta and party, adjoining the Italians' claim on the west, have a shaft 70ft. deep, and are driving on a huge body of wash. They have driven 33ft., and to-day found a nugget of 4dwt. The wash is gold-bearing, throughout, and the face is over 30ft. wide, and is not yet penetrated through. Nearer the town is a group of claims all showing good...
