THEATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

THEATRICAL NOTES. (BY "THE JOHNNIE."} A variety company, c imposed of Miss Hetty Chapman, Messrs. Charlie Cogill, Billy Warner, Tom Coward, and others, and advanced by Mr. Lawler (business manager and director), opens at Bun- bury this week, and should do good business in the s rath-western town. « * * Some members of the Maggie Moore Company not only " struck od " during their visit to the fields, but also saw the glint of gold, and intend to desert the sock a<id buskin for moles, pick, and shovel. * # * George Gardiner, musical director, and Max Maxwell have pegged out a claim at Kanowna, and Aleck Ander- son is likely to follow suit ere long. * * * Henry Hawkins has been engaged by Maggie Moore as pianist in Gardiner's place. * * * Theatric tl matters in Perth will soon be as busy as ever.

"PASSE." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

" PASSE " The roses are ros ty, the wine has gone sour, The women are tiresome from fore- most to last. I have looked at my eyes in the glass foran hour And I know that my summer is past. So scatter the garden, and shatter the bowl. And speak the dull truth to the women at last, Ifs got to be done, but ifs burning a soul In the sun of a summer that's past. Was I ever in love ? Well, there's one that is gone. And ifs better she didn't remain to the last. But I sometimes reach out for her hand in the dawn When I dream that my summer is past. Afraid ? Well, there's not many men who could keep The pace I enjoyed, and there's fewer could last. . . . Ay, ifs strange that these midnights should find me asleep But I know that my summer is past. If ifs good to be sorry, God knows I am good Or is it that Fm but a coward at last? There was many a deed I'd have done if I could In the beautiful summer that's past. Nay ! I can't come to-night, dear old comrade, I can't ! You say we must have one ...

TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

TENNIS. BT "RACQUET." - The lovers of the game of tennis will be pleased to learn that the Perth Bowling Club is about to construct two asphalt tennis courts on the land ad- joining the bowling green at the Esplan- ade. No better site could be found, as it has the advantage of being beauti- fully situated and within one minute's walk of the post office. I * # * It is estimated that it will cost £140 to lay down two courts in a thoroughly substantial manner, and the Bowling Club have decided to raise the sum to .£150 by the issue of 30 debentures of £5, each bearing interest at the rate of 7 per cent., repayable out of the sub- scriptions received from tennis players, which are to be set aside for that pur- pose, the debentures being repaid as funds are available. The members of the Bowling Club have shown their confidence in the success of the club by taking up 20 of the debentures, and doubtless the remaining 10 will soon be taken up by gentlemen interested in the game of tennis.

SYDNEY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

SYDNEY NOTES. Eight to five was the verdict in the game between the University and Pirates, which was played on the Agri- cultural Ground in the presence of about 3000 visitors. For a consider- able time nothing in the shape of a chance occurred, the play being ex- ceptionally fast and brilliant on both sides, Armstrong, one of- the 'Varsity forwards, being the first to get over. The shot for goal, however, was a failure. Half-time showed-University, three points; Pirates, niL During the second half the 'Varsity showed con- siderably better form than their oppo- nents, although the Pirates obtained the lead for a while. Mullett having, after a clever ru a, managed to score be- tween the posts ; Appleby converting. This advantage, however, was of short duration, for after some clever passing Shortland got the bau, and scored just j behind the post, Walsh kicking the goal just as the whistle blew. ! # # * The Wallaroos gave Randwick a ] terrible drubbing, the scores at the close of th...

MELBOURNE JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

MELBOURNE JOTTINGS. The 27th of last month saw the open- ing games of the second round in con- nection with the league matches, the clubs meeting each other being exactly the same as on the opening day of the season. Essendon, Melbourne, Geelong, and South Melbourne gained winning points, respectively defeating Eitzroy, St. Elida, Collingwood, and Carlton. # * # ESSENDON V. FITZROY. Essendon's victory over Fitzroy once again gives the former club the lead in the premiership fight. On all the grounds the wind had much to say in the game, and those who had the wind in their favour during the first quarter established a lead which was maintained to the end. On the Fitzroy ground the wind was a very strong element, and the Essendon men made the most of it, establishing a lead which Fitzroy was unable to overtake, and eventually winning by 3 goals 1 behind to 1 goal 2 behinds. # * # SOUTH MELBOURNE V. CARLTON Since the South Melbourne team has commenced to assert itself, the en- thusiasm...

[?]enings from home. Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

tôtontttgs Iront Hart«. (BY "THE PLAYGOER.") Jjeave off your damnable faces, and begin." "When London Sleeps," which will be produced by Messrs. Holloway and Anderson, at the Theatre Royal, for the first time on Monday evening, should prove quite, if not more successful than it has done in the sister colonies. * # # It is a stirring melodrama of the modern school, and abounds with thrill- ing and effective incidents throughout. Two of these in particular are more than ordinarily sensational - an at- tempted cremation of the heroine, and her escape from a burning building necessitating a hazardous walk over a telegraph wire while burdened with a child on her back. Nor is the lighter phase of comedy lacking in the piece to relieve the shuddering horror of some of the scenes, while the action of the drama is so brisk that- certain improba- bilities seemingly inseparable from this type of play escape notice. The drama scored an immediate success in Mel- bourne, and was pronounced by cri...

I FOOTBALL. BY " BAJBBACKER." {^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.] Sunday last saw the first of the inter district football matches on the Recre- ation Ground, Coolgardie, when the Kalgoorlie players met the local men. Tiie game was witnessed by a large number of spectators, and was fairly evenly contested during the first three quarters' play, after which the Kal- goorlie representatives fairly romped over their opponents, and won by 7 goals 6 behinds to 4 goals 5 behinds. * « * Gullen, captain of the visiting team, handled his men in first-rate style, and thoroughly deserved the win, being well backed op during the afternoon by Dave Williams, Jennings, and Cahill. * # # For the losers a word of praise is necessary on behalf of Kirfe-Ww^ Tyson, Hancke, and Farley, who did yeoman service for the Coolgardie team. * » # The Menzies v.

IS IT TRUE: [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

IS IT TRUE: That a man used to be paid 8s. per day on the harbour works to cut grass to feed wallabies ? That it took the man weeks at 8s. per day to grub rocks before the grass could be grown ? That he said he had a little zoo there ? That the zoo was supplemented by an official's poultry farm ? That four buggy horses were " kept exercised" through the week for the pleasure of certain officials on Sun- days, and their wives on week days, for shopping, polo, and tennis matches ? That the exercise they got was running timber, lime, manure, cow hair, iron, building material, etc., from the harbour works to a new private house? That the buggy was once requisitioned to drive a boy to get a milk tooth drawn ? That on other occasions it was requisi- tioned to drive a young official to get shaved, and to drive a prominent official to the baths every night ? That this particular stable cost the Government, including wages, feed, shoeing, wear and tear, from £10 to £12 per week ? That three ...

THROUGH A WOMAN'S "PINCE-NEZ." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

THROUGH A WOMAN'S " PINCE-NEZ." (BY " SYLVIA/') One of the most successful "At Homes " held during the present winter season was given hy Mrs. Greene, Karrakatta Mia, St. George's Terrace, last Wednesday night. A musical interlude took place between the dances. Mrs. Stewart Dawson, the possessor of a sympathetic light soprano voice, charmed her hearers by the rendering of the two songs she was entrusted with. Mrs. Snowball and Miss Elliott strength- ened the favourable criticism accorded to them a few weeks ago upon their firôt appearance in the city.

OUR HORRIBLE PENAL SYSTEM. No. IV.—THE FREMANTLE GAOL. THE REMISSION OF SENTENCES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

OUR HORRIBLE PENAL SYSTEM. No. IV.-THE FREMANTLE GAOL. THE REMISSION OF SENTENCES This matter is one of which very little is known by any person outside the gaol walls, and, with the exception of Mr. George, little or nothing is known by either officers or prisoners inside. Until three months ago there was absolutely no settled scale of re- mission, and everything depended upon the sweet (or sour) will of the super- intendent. There were certainly some imperfectly understood rules, but as they were applied just as Mr. George chose to apply them, of course the whole power of lengthening or shorten- ing tbe sentences of the prisoners was in his hands. Of course, I am well aware that all recommendations for re- mission were made by the super- intendent to the Inspector of Prisons (who is also sheriff and various other things), and by him passed on to the Attorney-General ; but this was simply a matter of form, and in all cases Mr. George's recommendations were carried out without alter...

THE TESTING OF INASI. A SAMOAN TRAGEDY. (FROM THE FRENCH OF ROSIERE.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 July 1898

THE TESTING OF INASI. A SAMOAN TRAGEDY. (FKOM THE FRENCH OF ROSIEBE.) Asl passed the little weatherboard building which does duty for a police court in the Apia municipality, I noticed unusual animation among the crowd of natives gathered on the ve- randah outside. In our land of " Fa'atali," which means, literally, the land of everlasting waiting, this cer- tainly indicated that something extra- ordinary was going on, and I went out of my way to take a look at the pro- ceedings. The floor of the tiny room was still damp from its morning's ablution, and a darkened circle around the painted wall showed where the oily heads of many witnesses had rested. At- a shabby little desk sat a young English- man, striving hard to frame his coun- tenance into that expression of judicial dignity which is supposed to be becom- ing to the bench. Th* throng of brown-skinned natives, clad in the scantiest of garments, came and went through the open door, or lounged on the verandah smoking their " sul...

After the long continued training for that function, a spell was gladly sought by many who had taken part in the contest. At the end of this week, however, another re- vival had set in, brought about, ne doubt, by the trophies offered for com- petition amongst the members of the Swan River and West Australian Clubs. So for the nest four weeks the river of an afternoon should presenta very busy appearance. * * # The first to come on are the Pair-oar races, held by the Swan River Club, on Saturday afternoon next, the 16th inst., for trophies presented by the president,.

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN §unbag Eiraes. SUNDAY, JULY 10, 1898. THE PRISON SYSTEM. The crusade against the condi- tion -of Fremantle Gaol instituted by the Sunday press of Perth bas at last been brought to a success- ful issue by the carrying1 of a motion through Parliament com- manding the appointment of a Boyal Commission to en- quire into the working of the whole system. The Government offered a faint-hearted negative to the proposal, but it is significant of the widespread interest and and genuine alarm which our articles have excited that the motion iras carried nem con, even ¿those who were inclined to defend the present officials being of opinion that the system is radi- cally wrong. # * # And this, after all, has been oar sole contention all along. We have never been anxious to malign or personally attack any person or persons, but we have all aloLg seen the evils of the methods now adopted, and have not hesitated to point them out. That we did right and that our anim- adversions ...
