THE LAND OF PROMISE. A PLEA FOR THE GROPER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 July 1898

THE LAUD OF PROMISE. n A PLEA FOR THE GROPER. Land of fragrance and dear drips. Where from ditches, drains, or sewers Ambrosial odors thickly rise, Paradise of pubs, and brewers ; Where Boniface from mom till night At the weary beer-pump strains, j And the solemn Rechabite Feels fever raging in bis veins. For living here is rather risky, Where water kills as weil aa whisky. Í Heroic spirits hither sail ! From bailiffs, creditors, and dons, Wives, sweethearts, hunger, and the gaol ; j Here played-out spielers find new runs ; Asylum of the poor and wronged The honest man, the luckless thief, And threadbare clerks have hither thronged, And lawyers who ne'er held a brief, The loafer, navvy, drapers serf Who lives on air when tilings are slack The hundreds rained by tile turf, The Government dade that's got the sack [ Doctors with practice but no fees, Cockies' sons to join the traps, Fair ladies, every -style yon please I Afghans, Hindoos, Chows, and Japs r Civilisation's jackals follow...

OLD-TIME flíZE BPf BATTLES. : NO. 4.-BEN CAUNT AND BENDIGO. After their second fight & match was almost immediately made between the two men for a hundred a side, but after several deposits were made the money was drawn by mutual consent,' and Bendigo accepted a challenge from Deaf Burke, the latter offering to lay £100 to £80 ; but when they met on Febru- ary 12, 1839, at Heather, in Leicester- shire, Burke grew so aggravated with Bendigo's shifty tactics that in the tenth round, after the fight had lasted ! only 24 minutes, he so far forgot hiin ! self as to butt at the Nottingham man, I whereupon Burke was immediately ad- judged to have lost the fight. After this there were many disputes as to who was really the champion, and Jem Ward, who had taken Bendigo under his wing, presented him with' a belt, which, however, was not allowed to give him the muchndesired title, .' and soon afterwards he forfeited £70 to Tass Barker.

AMERICA'S VIEW OF THE GOLD YIELD. 1898 TO BE A YEAH OF GOLD. Under the quaint heading of "Antipo- des to Empty the Yellow Metal on. the Markets," the New York "Sun" thus comments on the outlook of the gold supply for 1898 : This year there will be a very great in- crease in the gold supply of the world if the rate for the early months is kept up. Hie greatest increase, however, it re- ported from the Rand District in South Africa. The Band has exported in the first four months of this year almost twice as much gold as in the "orrespond ing months of two years ago, while the increase over the same months in 1897 is 384,236oz., or 6,984,200dois. There is also an increase in Australian gold from 2.097,000 ounces in the first three months of 1887 to 2,671,000 ounces in the first three months of this year.

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN »JO SUNDAY, JULY 31, 1898. A FUSS ABOUT NOTHING. A mighty mustering of forces, or gathering of the clans, took place in the ] Legislative Assembly when Mr. Leake brought forward his motion to hand over the Coolgardie water scheme to pri- vate enterprise. Every member who could be 'trusted to vote' for and with the Government was beaten up, and the Ministry's whips searched every club, hotel, and hole and comer" for members. And then, after all this fuss and feather, and all this to-do about nothing, and after the members had sat up half the night to prove their devotion to the Government, the motion was negatived on the voices. The fact- is, that Mesas. Leake and Simpson had the majority on a string, and played wich them at their own sweet wilL The motion, was entirely a private one, promoted by certain members of the Opposition, who believe first of all that the carrying out of the scheme is fraught with disaster to the country^, and who also favor the encourage...

You hurl a ball with, all your might, And try another's life to blight, By smashing bones or maiming sight, While he with cudgel shows it fight, Nor cares on whom the thing may light, That's cricket You kick shout a bag of air, Then after it you madly tear, One barks your shins, you rend his hair, I If necks get broken you don't care, While at you crowds of idiots stare, That's football. You whack a little baby's ball Over a net, shout 'Thirty all." You slip and wriggle, slide and fall, Jump up and hit it if you're tall, When away it flies o'er the garden wall, That's tennis. You stick a ball on a little pile, Then knock it away 'bout half a mile. The further it goes the more you smile, Then wander after it single file (I'm sure to watch you gives me bile), That's golf.

But now he stretches his tanny length There is stir in the dusk of the hundred year« Distant the sounds and ¿reat his strength, So he dozes aguin with listening ears. Alane the young eagle above the rock Swings luther and thither, to and fro, Wateliing the smoke and the dust of the earth, Watching the free wind blow. Drowsed too-but now he ruffles his crown, And the evening light in his eyes giowetU red As he mounts to mark the sun go down, A century's sun, 'neath the thunderhead. "Be we brothers or brothers bs we not?" To him on the rock comee down the cry. And he answers, '"Yea, we are kith and kin, Twain kings of the eart h and sky Thou of the lightnings-of beaven best ward, I of the powers of God's OTe:jt deep. Gather the thun...
