FOOTBALL. [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.] [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

FOOTBALL. BY " BAB.BA.CKEB." [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.] The Recreation Ground, Coolgardie, attracted a big crowd on Sunday last when the local clubs, the Coolgardie and Rovers, met in the premiership competition, The game to a spectator was most uninteresting during the first, second, and third quarters, and, but for the fact that the teams woke up a bit towards the finish the whole game would have been most discouraging. At the commencement any quantity of dead work was put in, when just be- fore the whistle blew a neat goal was potted by that smart player Treloar, a behind or two also being obtained, and 10 points to 2 in favour of the Rovers was the state of the game on changing ends. The second half placed matters on a somewhat more even base, flantke and Sowerby repeatedly asserting them- selves until Sowerby secured the ball and marked to...

UN-NATURAL HISTORY. The Reporter (Orneryinkcuss Parobnoxious). [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

UN-NATURAL HISTORY. (Br OUR OWN ZOOLOGIST). The Reporter (Orneryinkcitss Par ob- noxious) . The reporter is a noble animal, but like the common or'bus horse is never appreciated at his true value. Re- porters have been successfully tamed, and are now included among domestic animals or those useful to man. Like the bee of poetry, and the joke of the comic singer, the reporter is a very hard worker. The reporter, having been thoroughly tamed, is employed by intellectual mea to work for their living. The reporter has many natural enemies, the most dreaded being a small insect called " the comp." This little pest takes a supreme delight in making what he considers improvements in the copy of the poor, hard-worked, patient reporter. When the society reporter, in a burst of originality, mentions a variety artist as "a bright little lady," the comp, delights to make it read " a tight little lady." Another natural enemy of this despised but indispensable animal is a being which aids and abe...

THE MAN ABOUT TOWN ON THE FREM ANTLE LUNATIC ASYLUM. A SHOCKING TALE OF NEGLECT AND BARBARITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

THE MAN ABOUT TOWN ON THE PREM ANTLE LUNATIC ASYLUM. A SHOCKING TALE OP NEGLECT AND BARBARITY. There are two characteristics promi- nent in nearly all the public institu- tions under the control of the W.A. Government. One of these is ineffi- ciency, and the other immutability. " As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be," seems to be the maxim of the officials connected with these abodes of the unfortunate. In other countries such institutions, if not perfect at the beginning, gradually evolve or progress towards jierfection. Thus the Fremantle Gaol is to-day just about what it was in A.D. 1849; the hospitals are much the same; and the asylum is nearly ditto, or perhaps more so. At this most ment there is being "investigated," in a hole and corner sort of way, certain charges of cruelty against certain asylum officials, which charges, by the way, are of a sufficiently gross and in- human character to ensure the dis- missal if not prosecution, of those responsible, if th...

That everything possible is being done by the Government to prejudice the result of a certain libel action ? That the Soya!

POLITICAL PARS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

POLITICAL PARS. Mr. R. S. Haynes: "The fact that the whole of the Central Province is cat oat of the expenditure reminds me that the Hon. Mr. Wittenoom has left the Hose." Mr. James : " Government officials are not paid to be honest. They are paid to support the Government policy." Mr. Diing worth: "Thousands of voters have been struck off the electoral roll here, and the same all over the colony." Mr. Simpson: "By instructions from the Government." Mr. Illingwarth : "I have received five applications from different regis- trars, calling upon me to appear in per- son and prove that I have a right to vote in a certain district of the colony, where I have been paying rates for years on the property on which I claimed." Mr. Ewing.- "I feel certain that if an Electoral Bill came before the House hon. members will make it a democratic measure, because the House is a demo- cratic House, notwithstanding the oc- cupants of the front Treasury benches." The Premier: "You are a great democrat,...

AN IMPORTANT GOVERNMENT CONTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

AN IMPORTANT GOVERN- MENT CONTRACT. Tenders have been called and ac- cepted for the work of thoroughly whitewashing the Femantle Gaol both inside and out. It was originally in- tended to have the work done depart- mentally by a Boyal Commission, but the Department of Public Shirks came to the conclusion that the work could not be done successfully by any kind of amateur effort, as the defects to be covered up and put out of sight are of considerable magnitude and extent. The contract has been secured by J. W. Hackett, an old and well known operator with the charitable brush which covers such a mul- titude of sins. Already considerable progress has been made with the work, although it is asserted by experts in bankruptcy and others that the. lime is being laid on a trifle too thick. It has also been suggested that the judges of the Supreme Court should be called upon to examine the work and express their opinion apon it, as an innovation in connection with the time-honoured performan...

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. ALLEGED SWEATING AT FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. ALLEGED SWEATING AT FREMANTLE. Sir.-I -wish to call your attention to the system of white slavery which is practised in the milling trade of Fre- mantle. The employees have to work 12-hour shifts, day and night, no allow- ance being made for meals. At the same time they are receiving a lower rate of wages than is paid for the three hour shifts in Victoria. I am employed on the night shift. I have to get to work by 6 o'clock every evening, and continue until 6 o'clock the following morning, no time being allowed for meals. The wages I receive for this is .£2 2s. per week. Including Sunday night's work, we really have to work seven nights a week. Can you wonder at married men not being able to live in this Golden West? Surely some union rate of hours and wages should be proposed for us ? I should like you, as a champion of the people, to thresh this matter out. NEMO. Fremantle, July 13th, 1898.

WORLD OF WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

WORLD OF WHEELS. (BY "THE SCORCHER") The Metropolitan Bicycle Club have decided to support the introduction of the Totalisator Bill, and no doubt many will sarcastically remark that the Metrops. having thrown in their lot the Bill is certain to be placed upon the Statute Book of the colony, but it may not generally be known that on the other side the favor of cyclists is eagerly sought after by politicians, their support at elections being recog- nised as no mean thing. Mr. Tom Hassall, one of the best sports in the colonies, and member of Parliament for Moree, New South Wales, is Presi- dent of the N.S.W. League of Wheel- men, and whilst there is but small chance of anyone ousting him from the. position he occupies in the League, still he is always glad when the election of the League's officials is over and he realizes that he is president for at least another term. Cyclists in Perth, if in anyway united, would possess just as much in- fluence as their brother cycliste in the east...

CORRESPONDENCE. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. (To THE EDITOB.) . Sir,-During the past -week exceed- ingly unpleasant and malicious rumours -were circulated in yachting circles in regard to a prominent naval architect of tins city. - These rumours were to the effect that the gentleman referred to was unqualified as a naval architect, was a plagiarist, was not the designer of the Francel and the Lucinda A (win- ners of American-Canadian inter- national races) nor of the Ventura, the most 8uty»piBful racing boat competing on our tasters last season.

GRINGALET'S ENGAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

CRINCALErS ENGAGE- MENT. A The worst crime in the world, in my opinion," observed my old friend Gringalet, in the peculiarly sententious manner which he usually affected, "is jumping at conclusions." " Do you really think so ? Why you may be led to form an opinion upon a subject unconsciously, and-" "Ah! there we have it. Uncon- sciously ! Never said that word in my presence ! Ifs like a red rag to a bull to me." " Surely the word is harmless enough/' " Think so ? " " Why, of course it is, and so is the state of mind it denotes. What can be more harmless than unconscious- ness ? " " Humph ! You know my wife, don't you?" I smiled in spite of myself as I nodded assent, for Madame Gringalet was all too well known to all her husband's friends-in fact, it was owing to that lady's peculiar temperament that we were at that moment enjoying our cigars as far away from the house as possible. " Well, it was owing to unconscious- ness, and that infernal habit of jump- ing at conclusions, that I...

ROWING. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

ROWING. (BY "AN OU> 'UN.") "Take your tame from me, boys." The entries for the trophies presented hy Sir George Shenton to the Swan River Club, for pair-oared races, closed on Monday last with the rather splendid number of 18 entries, thus making nine crews to compete for the possession of these trophies, and as they are to be won right out on the first time of ask- ing, some first-class finishes should be the result of the racing. These pair oar contests axe the first of a series of races the club intends holding during the eeason, for which a spacial trophy is offered to the member securing the greatest number of wins in all contests, so that should such be required, an extra incentive is offered as an induce- ment for large entries for all contests which this elub may hold.

FROM BAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

FROM BAY TO DAY. (BY "VOX.") Week before last I condoled with my Sunday contemporary because a certain scribbler calling himself " Cambuscan " had joined its staff. In its last issue "Cambuscan " retorts to the effect that I am an idiot, which is quite in accord - r* ance with his usual gentlemanly style. r_ N-, The reason of my iwalring the remark is "- not difficult to understand, as "Cam v- buscan" has a gentle little knack of advertising himself and his wares at the expense of those in whose service he happens to be. For example, in the last issue of the Chronicle he says : " One of the two Perth dailie-: can pay a poet. The sentiment and metre of the poems which the ' W.A.' publishes are both all that could be desired. The verses scan to a nicety." Considering that "Cambuscan" himself is the " poet " referred to, this is pretty cool - not to say frigid. More- over, if " Cambuscan's " very par- ticular friend gets on the same paper, I suppose we shall OK treated to all the " gif...

SYDNEY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

SYDNEY NOTES. The senior club finals resulted in the redoubtable Wallaroos haring to bow their heads before their Randwick rivals, and in the defeat of the Pirates by the 'Varsity boys. Heavy rain fell during the week preceding the matches, and up to an hour before thc commence- ment of the games heavy rain squalls passed over the city, and the state of the grounds can therefore be better imagined than described. The state of the ground had much to do with the defeat of the Wallaroos, and it is re- markable that on the only other occa- sion upon which they suffered defeat this season similar conditions prevailed uuder-foot. In all their other matches played in fine weather they have distinguished themselves by their brilliance and dashing play. # # # RAND WICK S V. WALLAROOS. This match was played on the Sydney Cricket Ground, the greater portion of which at the commencement of the game was under water. From the start the ball was carried towards the Rand- wick goal, but was quickly...
