OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE GOVERNMENT STORES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. j I THE GOVERNMENT STORES. | Sir,-I notice that in your valuable! paper you last Saturday made some com- j mente on the Government Stores Depart meut, and as one who was employed in1 that department for some two years, 11 wish to bring to your-notice a few of the j grievances of the employes of that much i mismanaged department. 1. Men are discharged, and their i wages reduced without any reason. : 2. Men are kept waiting for a week or more for their pay, because the head of tile department will not pay men leav- ing on their own account. 3. There is a system of epiaonage being carried out in the department by one of the senior officers, and lately a system of piece-work has been started on the coal, and which, if carried out, will reduce the men to the position of slaves, they having to handle 120 tons of coal per week to earn 48s. 4. The Government stores are in a state of chaos, and the clerks and labor- ers do not know from hour to hour that their job is sa...

FORMER WESTRALIAN LOANS. AN INTERESTING COMPARISON. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

¡F0R3LER WESTRALIAN LOANS i ?--. AN INTERESTING COMPARISON. t _ f I In view of the failure of the last ap j peal to the Loudon money market, it will be of interest to draw attention to J come comparisons which, have appeared in theae columns between the statistics of the first instalment of the loan of I January, 1898. The nominal amount lof loan in each case was £1,000,000, and the nominal rate of interest 3 per j cent. The interest is payable hali i yearly in respect to each loan*-on May 1 I and November 1 in the former case, and i I on January 15 and July 15 in the latter i case. In respect to the former loan, the principal is payable at par on May 1, 1935, the Government having: the option to redeem the stock at par on May 1, 1915, on giving twelve calendar months' notice, J and in respect to the latter loan the] principal is payable at par on January j 15, 1927. The loans were floated re-j spectively ou May 14, 1897, and Janu- ary 14, 1898; and in each case the] minimum price f...

UNNATURAL HISTORY THE MUNICIPAL COUNCILLOR. (Stinkibus Gutterensis.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

UNNATURAL HISTORY" j _._. I THE MUNICIPAL COUNCILLOR. (Stinkibus Gaitereasifi.) Thé beast now under consideratioE ÍB the result of scientific breeding. Bj combining tbs characteristics of th« porpoise with those of the Hampshire hog, and wtroducing strains of the «kmik, tadpole, and eel scientists have j produced the hybrid being which, is now the subject of study. The species is divided into two sub-species, the alder- man, and tiie local boardsman. The city councillor is a beast that loves to i wallow. When it is not wallowing, it loves to stand before a well-filled trough, into which it shoves its snout as many times a minute as it can, being jealous of its neighbor getting a greater amount . of food than, itself. All city councillors I aozzle their food. Their bellies fre- quently grow to an enormous size, though once in a while a councillor is lean. It ia consi dared a waste of the ratepayers' money for a counciÛor to be thin. The boss councillor is called a mayor. The mayor is...

A DOG DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

À DOG DRAMA We presume (writes the "Daily Chro- nicler7) that we are indebted to our Américain cousins for the sensational drama "Signal Lights," which has been ipresented to the patrons of the huge I house at Hoxton, for it is a story of the .States, with speciality performers, in- cluding the comic negro, the Americas tramp, and the kicking lady in the "Minnie Palmer" sun-bonnet and short skirt Its peculiarity, however, isih&t its actors include eight dogs, two donkeys, two peales, and a pet lamp. It tells a conventional story of a villain who mur- ders an old struire, whose daughter . will not love the villain, and of the daughter's true lover, a gallant sailor, being punished for the crime. The dia- logue is of that simple kind, not to say crude, that makes the cultivated smile, the unsophisticated applaud rapturous- ly, but the dogs never fail to make their pointa One dog realises poor Sey- mour's sporting dog that refused to enter the plantation after reading the notic...

CORRESPONDENCE. A PUBLIC SCANDAL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

[ CORRESPONDENCE. A PUBLIC SCANDAL. To the Editor. Sir,-In your issues of the 3rd and IO th of this month, your correspondent at Fremantle stated that certain officials connected with the harbor works were j ''making hay while the sun shines." If 'the charges can be substantiated, I, as one of the public, would like to see this matter fully investigated, and the facts made known. I think the Opposition should draw the attention of the Director of Public Works to the charges, and demand that the truth be brought to light It is shameful that well-paid officials should thus prostitute the powers given them. Their salaries are certainly ample to supply their wants, and at the same time build houses if they lived economically, without '"har- vesting" at the expense of the State. As a taxpayer, I do not intend to let the subject rest, but will keep at it until the charges are refuted or proved. -Yours, etc., TIMBEB. Fremantle, July 20, 1898. Telephone JSo. 137.

IS IT TRUE That the police might come nearer home if beat upon suppressing gamb- ling than the Chinese dens?

OUR MEAT AND MILK SUPPLIES. SOME STARTLING DISCOVERIES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

OTO MEAT AND MILK SUPPLIES. SOME STARTLING DISCOVERIES Following, upon the remarks made in a recent issue hy "Vox," we have uader * taken an investigation of the local meat supply, and though considerable reti- cence has been shown by the authori- ties, and as a consequence the daily J press have failed to .publish any parti ticulars, we have obtained some infor- mation which is of a decidedly startling nature, and of which we feel it our duty to apprise the public. Diseased meat has been seized hythe health authorities, meat which was being offered for haman consmnption. Dairy cattle, also, from which the city is being daily sup . plied with, milk, have during the past week- been seized and destroyed, and on a post mortem examination, being made, the animals were found to be suffering from tubercolosis. The dan- ger to the public- health will be gauged ? when it is stated that some of these cows were a source of supply of mOk for various portions of the city. Of late rumors had gai...

THE N.S.W. ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

THE 2f.S."W. ELECTIQLNS. "Never halloo till you're oat of the wood" is a maximum for anti-federa- lists to remember. When the news of the Seid majority was first published, it looked as if the cause of federalism vas hopelessly beaten in the parent colony. Subséquent analysis of the figures show that this is hardly the case. The Reid party have secured 66 seats, and the federalists only 49. - So far so good for. Reid, as here is a majority of 17. Bot there are 8 independents, all -avowed-op ponests of the Government, and thai takes the guilt off the gingerbread, by re- ducing the actual majority to 9. Butin that majority will be found 19 labor members. Now the votes of these gentlemen are notoriously open, to the highest (political) bidder. That is to say, thev will give votes only in ex- change for concessions. This means that Reid has either to go the whole, hog in labor matters, or find his majority ! vanish like a dream. If he .gives way to the labor warty, he will assuredly los...
