WHAT HAS REALLY HAPPENED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

WHAT HAS REALLY HAPPENED. The first Bill the Ministry sought to pilot through the House was the Educa- tion* Bill-an integral part of their policy as* set forth in the Governor's Speech. They ought to perpetuate ' a clause which rendered Free, Secular, and Compulsory Education a dead letter. The House objected to the clause, and it was rejected. The Ministry perse- vered with the Bill with the result that it was then .counted out. Still deter- mined, however, to destroy the secular idea, flxey re-introduced the,BUL and put in a mew .clause, embodying the' most vicious principle of the old one, using the excuse. that 'it had been re> jected by a thin House. Then, in v a House of 33, they were again defeated by a majority of 8. Despite this, thty still endeavoured to carry on business by introducing a Supply Bill. On this -a financial question of the most vital importance-the House was again counted out, showing, clearly that the Assembly has got utterly beyond the control of Minis...

A POLITICAL CRISIS DEFEAT OF THE FORREST MINISTRY BY A MAJORITY OF EIGHT. THE SUPPLY BILL COUNTED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

A PÔIMGAL CBISÏS ? -o DEFEAT OF THE FOR- REST MINISTRY Bf A toAJORITï OF EIGHT THE SUPPLY BILL COUNTED OUT. The foregoing "scare heads" are a re- j presentation of the kind of headings j which would have appeared in any of the daily papers on Friday morning! were they conducted "on the same lines; as those which prevail in the eastern! I colonies. On Thursday night we wit- nessed a defeat of the Ministry by a majority of 8 {in a House of 32) on the most vital and most hotly contested principle* of their first BUL Later in the evening they made an effort to get the Supply Bill through, but the House closed the purse-strings by absenting itself,- and the Bill was counted out. Thus the Ministry was practically de- feated twice in one evening, and yet next morning the Perth dailies made no special mention of the fact, and offered hot a single comment upon it. Such an attitude of studied indifference would be an absolute impossibility in any country where-the powers and advant- ages of C...

WHAT THE OPPOSITION MAY DO. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

¡ - I j WHAT THE OPPOSITION MAT DO. j If the Ministry persevere in retaining office despite the teachings of all con stitutional doctrine and usage, the dut; of the Opposition is clear. It is entitled to blocklde every measure brought be- fore the House, to refuse-supplies {which it has already done), and to do every- thing possible to obstruct- public busi- ness, so far as the Standing Orders per- mit. It naturally takes this course be- cause the Ministry is constitutionally discredited and dishonored. A* defeated Ministry has no Parliamentary right«, its own defeats having placed jt outside ¡the pale of ordinary political warfare That is the constitutional situation, and I we cannot see how any attempt to evade [the issue can be productive of public I good. No bus in ese can now be carried j on : and if the Government continue to I occupy the Treasury benches they ihem I selves become, guilty of obstruction of 'the worst kind. If, in defiance of the popular verdict, as expressed b...

WHAT ALL THIS MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

WHAT ALL THIS MEANS. In any other country but Western i Australia, the Government would at once have recognised that it was their duty to resign. Not so here, however. 'Office at all hazards, and under every j and any humiliation in their guiding mairim, Constitutional usage demands j that an administration subjected tc such treatment at the hands of the popular chamber, shall either resign or advise a dissolution. It remains to be seen whether the Government will do either. If they continue in office they do so only at the expense of a flagrant breach of the constitution. Precedents proving the truth of this conclusion are very abundant, but it is necessary to cite only one, which is chosen because it is on all fours with the existing political - position. The last Salisbury Ministry in the Mother Country resigned on precisely the same issue. The religious clauses of Sir John Gorst's Education Bill were re- jected by a majority of the House of Commons, and the Ministers promptly su...

LATE MINING NEWS. Kalgoorlie, Saturday. [From Our Special Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

j LATft MINING NEWS. Kalgoorlie, Saturday. . [Froni- Öur Special Correspondent.] Itis fessed here that Father Long has been the victim of a huge hoax in con- nection with the big nugget at Kanowna. The affair has not altogether been bar- ren of good resultSjhowever, as it turned men's attention again to prospecting, and ineearching for companion nuggets, some valuable discoveries have been made, not only at Kanowna, but elsewhere on the fields. Vigorous prospecting is in pro- gress for a deep lead in the vicinity of Kalgoorlie, and the numerous shafts in the neighbourhood of the racecourse, but nothing sensational has yet been dis- covered. A few days ago, near Kalgoor- lie Hospital, where about a hundred mea are at work, a five ounce nugget was dis- covered in one chum. Public opinion here is very unfavourable to the Maping BUL and especially as regards the ab- sence of provision for nuning boards, and also -the substitution of fines instead of forfeiture, the facilities: afforded ...

THE BIG FIND AT KANOWNA. LOCALITY OF THE FIND STILL UNKNOWN. INTENSE EXCITEMENT. FATHER LONG BESIEGED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

THE BIG FIND AT KANOWNA. LOCALITY OF TBE FIND STILL UNKNOWN. INTENSE EXCITEMENT. FATHER LONG BESIEGED. Intense excitement has prevailed in Kanowna ever since the announcement of the discovery of the immense nug- get, and rumors of every kind are flying about the town concerning the discov- ery, and the action of the authorities respecting the same. The All Nations mine, from which the 'huge nugget is supposed to have. ' been taken is situated about ^four miles north- west of the town. This was taken up some three years ago, and: worked by_ a Perth syndicate, but all work was suspended about 18 months ago.' A man named Michael Brodie un- earthed a 24oz, slug last Friday, and suspicion has been aroused that Father Long's nugget was taken from this claim by Brodie and a mate named Lana The country has been pegged for a couple of miles in the neighborhood, and some 400 men with dishes, shakers, and. sieves, are at work. Work has been entirely suspended on Brodie's claim, as four other' ...

ACTA DIUKflA. The Government has "discovered* i rabbits in the Nor'-West. The "Sunday Times'' discovered and published this j fact nearly six weeks ago. I The "West Australian" on Monday last published the details of the case of an inmate of the Old Men's Depot, where a broken leg was left without at- tention for some five days. The "W.A." was only a fortnight behind the "Sun- day Times" concerning thia news item; A sign of the times.-The exposures' in the "West Australian.'' It is part- ly a sign of the influence of the "Sun- day Times," but still, more, it indicates the "W.A.V determination to survive the Forrest Ministry. Mr. Lyall Hall, viewing with indig- nation and alarm the proposal to im- port bricks in large quantities from Victoria, on Wednesday asked Parlia- ment to increase the duty on the burnt blocks of pug. In the discussion which ensued it came out that with freight) charges and duty Victorian bricks are imported at 100 per cent. If this is not sufficient protection ...

A CYCLISTS EXPERIENCE IN SWAZIELAND. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

A CYCLISTS EXPERIENCE IN SWAZEELAND. The "Times of SwazieLand," in a re- cent issue, gives an amusing account of the adventures that befell a cyclist, Mr Jack B. Buchanan. Near the ELomati is a very excellent stretch of level path I 3 miles 742 yards in length, and it is j customary with Mr. Buchanan- to j slumber as lightly as-a policeman-on J duty as he pedals over tins particularly j seductive piece of road. On the day I in question he made no exception 1 to his rule. Now it so happened that a troop of silver monkeys had been engag- ed scorpion hunting,^ and during their quest had rolled a largish stone into the path. The machine made for the stone, and iEbam'jsake opened his eves in mid- air Just in time to manipulate an easy fall To say that the adjacent troop of monkeys enjoyed the comedy would be but mildly to interpret their chattering appreciation of the scene. Mr. J. B. Buchanan crawled to his'machine and found the left crank so bent by the con- tact- that he would have 5t...

WORLD OF WHEELS. TWO CYCLISTS AND A TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

ípELl) OF WHEELS. j . i,. . -o [By "Bone Shaker."] I ÎWO CYCLISTS AND A TURKEY. " Â short time ago two cyclists visited an hotel in the neighbourhood of Heidel- berg for dinner. Roast turkey formed part of the sumptuous repast provided, and after demolishing a leg and some breast slices off the fat bird, one of the riders determined to have another help- ing similar to the first, .stating he was prepared to pay for it. From what I can learn these cyclists were famous eaters, for they rapidly disposed of all the food what was brought to them, and i treated all viands on the table within' reach in the same manner, down to the last almond and raisin. Moving slowly to the settling ground, one cyclist planked down a sovereign to pay for two, and he received 12s. ?d. change. The charge was 2s. 6d. each dinner, and the one who had two full supplies of -turkey 2s . 6d. .extra..

After the usual routine, business had been gone through, the course for the next champion four-oared and sculling races of West Australia'was brought forward, the Swan'River delegates proposing that the course should be from Crawley to the city, while the Fremantle delegates were opposed to that course, preferring that the race should take place over the course the race had been rowed over dur- ing the past two years, from the race- course to Burswood, and tbe voting being equal, the chairman, Mr. Bennet, of Fre- mantle, gave his casting vote in favor of the up-the-river course.

SUNDAY MATCHES ON THE FIELDS. CEMENTERS V. WHITE FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

SUNDAY MATCHES ON THE FIELDS. CEMENTERS Y. WHITE FEATHER. These dubs met on tte Kanowna recreation reserve for the third time this season on Sunday last, in the presence of an immense gathering of spectators. Victory had been with the Cementers on each of the two matches played ear- lier in the season, but the White Feather men, having shown considerable im- provement of late, it was thought by many that they would lower the colors of their hitherto victorious foes. ~ The result of the game showed, however, that while those who recognised that the Feather boys had improved, were un- doubtedly right, they had been calculat- ing on the basis, that while the Feather boya were improving, the .Cementers were standing still, or perhaps gradu- ally getting worse, and this erroneous, method of calculating was made ejädöbt almost as soon as the gama-etarted, for rthe Cementers started.--' in a brilliant manner, and played well right through, winning as they liked.
