A HIDEOUS SIN. SENDING GIRL MISSIONARIES TO CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

A HIDEOUS, SIN SENDING- GIRL MISSIONARIES TD CHINA. (By a Hong Kong journalist.) gave the matter serious thought, I had grave doubts aa to the advisability of wending single women and girls to China ae missionaries. To spread truth and ! civilisation, to inculcate sanitary princi I pie« of both mind and body, is, even apart from religious considerations in the ideal, a noble work. But that wo i men are fitting instruments f T it* and more especially for pioneer work in the East, has always seemed to me to oe open to very serious question. Now that I have had some practical experi- ence, and many opportunities of learn ' ing the experience of others who have I been decades in the East, all my doubts have vanished like mist before a gale. I am satisfied that to send single women and delicate girls to do pioneer work in Chinai is a hideous sâni, and those who : send them are either densely ignorant or fanática. To grasp something of the I awfumesa of the position, of a woman or girl so...

THE PRINTING OF ACTS OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

THE PRINTING OF ACTS OF PARLIAMENT. Sir,-I think it is a grievance that the public are not afforded facilities for in- specting Acts of Parliament which are about to be enacted. The Government seem to think they have done all that can be required when they forward a re- port of the Parliamentary debates to the various public institutes throughout the colony. But in this case of important Acts, such as the Consolidated Geld Mining Act, Divorce Act, Juries Act, and others, it is certainly unfair that the general public should be kept in ignor- ance of the exact provisions of such Acts, except what is put before them in the al- ways biassed accounts of the newspapers. Also valuable suggestions might be. made by private individuals to their various members of Parliament. For these and other reasons I consider it highly desir- able that every public institute through- out the colony should be supplied with a copv of Acts of Parliament about to be 1 enacted, and also with the complete Act...

EVENINGS FROM HOME [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

EVENINGS FfiOM HOME {By tbs Play-goer.) The be-all and end-all of theatrical p caterers is appropriately enough, a wish. to please the large majority of people, and in this they are ably seconded by latter-day dramatists who write simply ' for the moment a class of play ever be- coming more and more sensational and unnatural. * * * * The desire to "hold the mirror up to nature," to show virtue her own features, scorn her own image, the very age and body of the time his form and pressure has vanished for the time being, and the "modesty of nature" retires in favor of the counterfeit presentment of soaring imagination. ' ?The*Work Giri," «ie writing of George Conquest and Arthur Shirley, was produced by the Holloway Drama- tic Company on Monday last, and throughout the week, and the audience was evidently well pleased ; for the various climaxes were followed with breathless interest, the villains were greeted with the customary negative form of applause bestowed on such, and plaudits ...

SYDNEY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

SYDNEY NOTES. The fourth annual match between the! combined Gauntry Branch Unions and j the pick of the .Metropolitan Union, j drew together a large crowd on the Syd-1 ney Cricket Ground, the game being watched from start to finish with the j keenest interest. The city team won very comfortably on points, the margin being 20 to 8, but there was not quite the difference thus indicated in the play of the sides.. P. M. Lane, of the Wal- laroo Club captained the Metro ps. and S. Wickham, of the Central Western District, led the combined team. Shortly after commencing, some splen- did combined play, on the part of the Sydney boys, resulted in Miller from a grubber pass picking up the ball beau- tifully, and going for the line success fully, and Spragg kicked a splendid goaL The city men's lead was, however, of j short duration, for Wright (Central Western) got on to the ball, and scored near the post, and Wickham converting, made the score five ali.

j FOOTBALL (By Barracker.) VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. The Premiership matches have ad- vanced another stage, with tile result that the redoubtable Essendon boys are still in the front, and must, bar ac j cidents, annex the coveted distinction. Most of the games were very one-sided, as will be seen by a glance at the results of the play, but some splendid indivi- dual work was put in by many of the players. The whole of the Essendon men worked well together, as indeed they haye done right through the sea- son. * * * * The result of the games were as fol- low:-Collingwood beat Melbourne, 8 goals 10 behinds to 1 goal 5 behinds ; .Fitzroy beat St. Kilda, 9 goals 13 be- hinds' to 3 goals 1 behind; Essendon; beat Carlton, 10 goals 17 behinds to 1 ; goal 3 behinds ; Geelong beat South!

SIR JOHN AND THE MILLION HE DIDN'T GET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

SIR JOHN AND THE MILLION] HE DIDST GET. -o ! By Darin. As everyone in Western Australir. knows, or, anyway, should know, there are two men in the world to-day who are satisfied that their mission in life is to fill the position of "God's Ui£ter study." The Emperor of Germanv is die." The Sight Honorable Sir John Forrest is the other. These gentlemen, undoubtedly, consider themselves as; saviours of their respective counties ; and are, therefore, much surprised when ¡ occasional events show them that they j are r/at infallible. The absolute and almost unparalelled failure of the : latest attempt to borrow money in Lon-1 don for West Australian public works is i a most serious matter, and, distinctly, the Premier is responsible fer the unfor nate occurrence. Colonial loans are mostly taken up by syndicates of British ! capitalists, who make a business of that | class of finance. These men necessarily act with caution, and are thoroughly posted in regard to everything happen- ing in th...
