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

ACTA DIURNA, Sir John Deficit Forrest! Judge Hensman declares "eenient" to be " alluvial." Vosper wants the gross receipts of the Agricultural Burrow. They are gross indeed. : ''jOódlin's your friend, not Short," as Piesse said to the fruitgrowers who asked for cheap rates. After seven years of unexampled prosperity - DEFICIT ¿8186,803 God bless Sir John ! "The story of Cambuscan bold." The story of Cambuscan bowled out would be more interesting. A Mr. Angel has married a Miss McConkey, at Geraldton. Girls are usually angels before marriage-but, afterwards ! The Bunbury Herald devotes an ar- ticle to the fact that a bucket of coal has at last arrived from the Collie. Wonderful place, the Collie ! Also Bunbury. Alex. Forrest does not like Vosper's motion to put the Government "bill for booze " on the table of the House. Vosper never thought he would. Sir John Forrest's estimate of rev- enue was only out .£253,254. Instruc- tive to note that Illingworth's estimates have been correct f...

THE REGISTRY OFFICE QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

THE KEGISTBY OFFTOE QUESTION. To THE EDITOR. Sir,-I am pleased to see from a paragraph re unlicensed registry offices in your issue of last week that you are determined to sift this matter to the bottom, and to endeavour the shield male and female workers from imposi- tion, and also to show them where to look for employment with safety. At the same time I wish to call your attention to the fact that employers of labour often cause needless disappoint- ment and annoyance by giving simul- taneous orders for the same situation to several différent registry offices. This not only causes confusion and useless*, expense, but it frequently leads to the employment brokers being blamed for inserting bogas advertisements. -Yours, etc., X.T.Z.

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. "The Lord loveth a cheerfulliar."—Vide Scripture or some other fellow. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. " BY THE MAN DI THE STKEET." " Tlie Irf>rd loveth a cheerful Uar."-Vide Scrip- ture or some other fellow. Proceedings at the Parliamentary skittle alley in Hay-street have been fairly lively daring the past week. The Government have been setting np the ninepins and the Opposition have been bowling them down steadily and with an earnestness that proves that even the best jarrah pins in the Ministerial Forrest of the most approved and antiquated design will not long stand the assault of the sound argument bowls thrown as them every night from the opposite benches. The Premier has done his level best to resist tne attack and.has stood solid and unshifted (no allusion to getting his shirt out) during the pi-oceedinars. To change the meta- phor, Sir John has undoubtedly great boiler capacity and it has been run at high pressure all the week with I20lbs. fteam to the square inch. The rivets down the front of his vest remained un b us ted, though the pressure was gre...

RAILWAY TELEPHONE RATES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 July 1898

RAILWAY TELEPHONE RATES., Sir,-A reader of your valued paper is desirous to know if, in the event of a passenger alighting at a railway sta- tion, and having left a parcel in the railway carriage, it is a regulation of the department for a stationmaster to charge a fee of 2s. before that official will telephone to the train's destination to enquire if such a parcel was found aboard the train. Such was the case with me on Friday last travelling to Subiaco. After I left tue train and had proceeded some distance, I discovered I had left a parcel in the train, and, on going back to the Subiaco station, I asked the stationmaster to telephone to Fremantle to enquire if the parcel was found in the tram. The stationmaster informed me that before he telephoned to Fremantle he required a fee of 2s. for so doing, and I had to pay. This I consider a gross imposition, and am not aware of it being done in any of the -ti_t_:_ -cr_ other colonies. -lours, etc., ABTHUB PAJKKEE. Mary-street, Highate ...

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

THE GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE. (TO THE EDITOE.) Sir,-I notice that in your valuable paper of Sunday last you still farther exposed the above establishment, and justly so. If all accounts one hears are tine, that office must be in a state of chaos, and I think Parliament should want to know a little about the working of it. Complaints seem to be very rife, and the men dissatisfied, and I understand they have cause to be. I think it would be interesting to the public if a Member of Parliament should ask for a return of the cost of the printing done at the Government Printing Office for the several Govern- ment departments, and also want to know how much money is spent annually for outside print- ing done in private establishments, so as to compare one with the other. I think the Government Printer would be greatly puzzled how to faithfully answer it. Dissatisfied men will talk, and some things you hear makes one believe that "things are not what they seem to be." Even last Sunday's e...

A CRUEL SWINDLE. A PUBLIC WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

A CRUEL SWINDLE A PUBLIC WARNING. It having come to my knowledge that a certain person or persons have been obtaining goods, credit, and moneys, un- der the false pretence that they are in some way interested in "The Sunday Times" newspaper, I take this, the earn- est opportunity, of stigmatising these statements as criminally false and fraud- ulent, the obvious intent being to de- ceive the unwary for private gain at the public expense. "The Sunday Times" is tue sole property of the undersigned, who purchased it from Mr. O. L. Haines, who was appointed official receiver in the case of Vosper v. Ellis by the Su- preme Court. Pursuant to his au- thority to realise the assets, he abso- lutely sold the paper to myself, and therefore any statement to the effect that anyone is entitled to £200, or any other sum, out of any future sale is a wilful lie, and a cheat. And the person or persons who for purposes of their own have given currency to such statements are hereby publicly branded as...

BRITISH ASSOCIATION. SYDNEY AND COUNTRY PLAY A DRAW. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

BRITISH ASSOCIATION, .{ -i SYDNEY AND COUNTRY PLAY 'A DRAW. The mter-district match, between the Combined Couptry and Metropolitan teams was played on University Oval. The Sydney team, eight of whom were Volunteer players, showed superior combination, but the country defence was very strong. After a fairly excit- ing game the result was a draw of, one; goal each, Carey scoring for Sydney, and W. Banner for the Country. A. Banner, Gibson Hatton, Carrey,and Shaw showed up well for Sydney ; while Baillie (in goal) played a splendid game for the visitors, among whom Jackson, Yorke, and Sims were very prominent.

VANISHING AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

VANISHING AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES. Mr. 9. Newland, President of the South Australian Branch of the Royal Geographical Society, stated in his an- nual address, before a meeting of eah scribers on Tuesday, that it was to be regretted that no comprehensive wort «ii the South Australian native tribes had been published. "It is not tooiate," he said, "to urge upon the Govern- ments of the several Australian colo- nies the desirableness of taking imme- diate steps to preserve the traditions and memorials of the remnants of such" tribes as exist throughout the settled districts of the Australian continent. The work must be undertaken without delay. ffhe' Adelaide tribe, once numerous, are -now extinct. The same may be practically said 'pf .the' Encounter Bay tribe, who, when - Earo-" peane first landed, were also numerous" and powerful. The Port Lincoln tribe, formerly fierce and numerous, are how reduced to less than a dozen aged 'and decrepit men and women. As they have no children, the tr...

SYDNEY NOTES. FINAL FOR THE SYDNEY C.G. TROPHIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

SYDNEY NOTES. FINAL FOR THE SYDNEY CG. TROPHIES. The final for the Sydney Cricket Ground Trophies between the Band wick and University Clubs," which was played OB the 9th inst., drew together about 11,000 spectators. For some seasons past the Bsndwicks have held the premier position, but the improve- ment shown by the 'Varsity and their soccesses during the present season, led many to believe that the trophies would foll to their lot, and to tins fact was largely due the immense gathering to -witness the match. The game was ex- tremely even, and at the end of the or- dinary time the scores were level-3 i points each. Five minutes extra each ?way were played without points, so that the game will have to be played off. The "tain feature was superb tackling, brilliant bits being few. Enthusiasm, however, was very warm whenever the 'Varsity did anything of a fine charac- ter. While exceptionally keen, play ?was met rough, yet two players were in- jured, Surmaa having his collar-bone bro...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

FOOTBALL. -o-~ Once again the Essendon beys hare ?bown their superiority in the football field, South Melbourne on tins occasion going down before them. The south- erners have, since they were ?defeated by the Essendons, considerably streng- thened their team, and as they, were only just beaten on the previous occa- sion, it was thought that they would lower the colors of their opponents, and the £eam led by Fraser entered the . field with every confidence, Fate, however, was against them, and the Essendon men, whose trip to Adelaide had evidently improved them, started OS with a dash, never allowed the Southerners to get properly going, and quickly scored three behinds, the Souths responding, however, with two behinds, and it looked as though the contest would be fairly even. Essendon con- tinued the rushing game with good effect, half time showing the score: Essendon 4 goals 8 behinds, South Mel- bourne 1 goal 4 behinds. Shortly after t commencing the second half, Kearney cleverly...

THE GOVERNMENT HOSTING OFFICE. A REJOINDER. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

THE GOVERNMENT HOSTING OFFICE. A REJOINDER. To the Editor. Sir,-In your last issue your corres- pondent "Wanderer" states that outside' influence bas been brought to bear on the Government Printer to raise the salary of one of the provincial staff to 11s a day. í challenge your correspon-j dent to name the person or persons who | interviewed the Government Printer on1 my behalf, or else acknowledge that he has made a cowardly attack under a nom de plume. Of course, Mr. Editor, you will see that justice is done by insisting upon the name or names of the said per- son being published, or else that "Wan- derer" shall not be allowed to use your columns to make reckless statements. Also, employes in this establishment are not in the habit of running to the Gov- ernment Printer with tales, especially the person so pointedly alluded to by "Wanderer," who has evidently wandered from the truth; Mr. Pether being the last person to listen to invi- dious tales from anyone, and using his own jud...

THE POSITION AT THE "SUNDAY TIMES." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

TBE POSITION AT THE "SUNDAY TDüES." The growth of the "Sunday Times" during the last month is one of the bnost remarkable features of contem- porary local journalism. We ventured a week or so back to predict that the paper would soon be as large as its Sydney namesake, and this week wit- nesses the fulfillment of our prediction. In addition to this increase of size, which has been forced upon us by pres- sure of advertising businesses, the cir- culation continues to increase at a marvellously rapid rate. Concurrently with, this increased size 750 extra copies of the paper are being printed, of which 500 mil go to swell the metrop^ litan, and 250 to the goldfields distri- bution. We have been compelled to enter into fresh contracts for printing, one effect of which is that the "Sunday Times" will be published at à ínu-'-h earlier hour than has heretofore been the case. The change of printers has been made simply to meet the altered form of the paper, and not ' because of any dissatis...

A MODERN ICONOCLAST. ATTACKED ART WITH AN AXE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

A MODERN ICONOCLAST ATTACKED ART WITH AN ATP!, % Last night Miss Dorothy Maur took an axe &n3 chopped to pieces a num- ber of groups of cupids which decorated . the Fine Arts buildings of the Espoei- J; tion.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. Sir,-In your comments of your: issue of to-day I certainly admire the Stand you have taken re the unemployed difficulty in Perth, and the note of warn- ing you have sounded to the powers that ba Although not one of the unemployed, I can sympathise with the many honest seekers of labor that are now walking the town and districts in a vain attempt to earn their bread. There are now many hundreds who when they rise of a morning do not know where to get their breakfast. As for the rebuff the petition secured from Sir John's Jackeroo South, and the interference of the police, I fancy that can be very easily explained. As you are aware, W.A. has only for a few years been a free colony. Most of the "Jacks" in office have been born and reared amongst convicts, and many of them have not yet travelled outside the boundary of W.A., and know little of free institutions or free men, which ac- counts in a measure for many things which surprise t'othersiders. Tours t...
