WORLD OF WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

WOELD OF WHEELS. (By fie "Scorcher.5') Broken Hill cyclists have opened a «¡híTIiTig subscription list to present Joe Megson, erstwhile Australian champion, with a fitting souvenir on his retirement .from the racing arena, owing to the death of his father. A benefit meeting has also been mooted in Sydney for the same purpose. * * * * Garm, the winner of the big Paris Roubaix road race, has not met with un- alloyed happiness since he took to the path. Formerly a chimney sweep, he took to racing with, comparative suc- cess, but never won anything big until < the Paris-Roubaix race. Getting home: from the winning post after a rub down, G arin discovered that his wife had iun] away with the lodger, leaving a five year-old son alone to congratulate him. j Following this the ex-sweep received a letter from America telling him that a deceased uncle had left him several million dollars, but this apparent good fortune was discounted by tile fact that the U.S. Government decline to...

DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST. Mr. R. Greaves, who was intimately acquainted with the late William Law- rance, sen., writes us an interesting letter extolling his many virtues and bearing witness to his laudable enter- prise in exploiting the country in the earlier days. MIT. Greaves characterises bim as thc Grand Old Man of gold-mining history in Western Australia ; for utterly re- gardless, of expense and personal com- fort, he would " aquip and accompany party after party in all directions and under any circumstances. The pioneer eventually collected a cabinet of specimens that would not do discredit to the most ardent of geolo- gists, gold-bearing quartz, however, possessing the place d'honneur. From Kimberley, the Irwin River, Peterwangie, Mount Churdman, Mount Stirling, Cardup, Biddon, the Newcas- tle district, and the Wargin River, he had* auriferous quartz, lignite, shale, as- bestos, talc, galena, mundic, mica, and other mineral specimens of a more or less valuable nature, and i...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 31 July 1898

PROM BAY TO BAT. /-o (BY VOX.) Dr. Lovegrwe is the City Coroner. He is abo medical officer in charge of . the Old Men's Depot An oíd man died in that institution during the Week. As officer in charge, Dr. Love grove examined .the cadaver, and as coroner decided there was no need for *n inquest. There is too much of the Pooh Bah. business about this in my opinion. In view of recent revelations an inquiry into every death taking -' place at the institution is- -necessary. Coroner Lovegrove should, for de eency'a sake, cease reviewing the 'corpses who, when alive, were under Dr. Lovegrove's care. * * * Of the fi Tiding of nuggets there is ?

SATURDAY'S LATEST A LEEDERVILLE FIRE. A THOUSAND POUNDS WORTH OF DAMAGE DONE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

SATURDAY'S LATEST A LEEDERVILLE FIRE. A THOUSAND POUNDS WORTH OF DAMAGE DONE. A fire broke out early yesterday morning in Newcastle-street, Leederville, thescene-of the conflagration being two shops, one of which was occupied by Mr. J. S. Bennet, the Mayor of Leeder- ville, as a land and estate agency, and the other by Mr. J. T. Tunnock, chemist and dentist* who is also a member of the Leederville Municipal Council. Nothing is known as to the origin of the outbreak, as nobody was deeping on either of the premises, while the destruction wrought was complete, as both buildings and their contents were totally destroyed. The buildings, bern« of wood and iron, were somewhat of an inflammable character, and it can be easily under- stood that when once the chemical in- gredients got fairly alight it would be a very difficult matter to get the fire under. The office of Mr. Bennet had no other rooms at the back, but there were several living rooms at the back of the chemist's shop, and these...

OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE UNEMPLOYED. CO-OPERATIVE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

! . OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE UNEMPLOYED. CO-OPERATIVE SYSTEM. i The nrimber of unemployed on the fields, and the continual influx of men from outside, threatens to lead to a serious crisis. To those who have not exhausted their financial resources, and 1 have any practical knowledge of mining, the opportunities presented by the out- side fields for payable prospecting ven- tures should not be lost sight of. From Black Flag, through Smithfield, the Ar- row, and Bardoc, are numbers of aban- doned shows that would pay a small working, syndicate to take and work for the ore already in sight. The chances of selling a property are remote, but good wages, if not a rise, may be made by turning atttention in this direction. The auriferous nature of the country between Kalgoorlie and the outskirts of exploration is undoubted. The main difficulty is want of treatment facilities. But this can be kept in mind while pros- pecting, and in chief attention being paid to tiie country within reach of a c...

THE YELLOW AGONY. IN THE BLACK NORTH. STARVING WHITE MEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

THE YELLOW AÖOOT. Di THE BLACK JSOETH- j STABVING WHITE MEN. Barb/ in tte present week. Mr. Vosper. MP., received the following pathetic, if rather incoherent, telegram : - "On Forrest and Bart station, shear- ing started 14 shearers, half Chinamen, all Chinamen rotiseabouts. Fifteen white shearers begged to have prefer- ence to Chinamen, refused by manager, said will employ who I like; admitted having 33 applications, and yet I will employ Chinamen, they snit me ; shear- ers starving on Gascoyne ; travelled from Perth, Murchison, Nor1 West; other squatters employ no Chinamen; men on river starving ; no work, no money. We appeal for help ; particulars follow; re- " ply paid.-Shearers, per M. Curran. The utility of an alleged system of "restriction" is hereby amply illustrat- ed. Sorely, but not very slowly, the white man is being starved ont of the north, and, like the rabbit pest, the evil spreads. This telegram comes from Car- narvon.

A GROSS INJUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

A GROSS INJÜSTICI. A moat glaring piece of injustice on the part of the Government has come under our notice, and one requiring im- mediate attention. Without the slight- est notice the Railway Department has docked the railway employes on the goldfields of one-half their goldfields al- lowance. For simplicity in injustice, commend ns to «och proceedings as those just taken by the Railway Department. A circular has been issued under date of July 19, by the Traffic Manager, an- nouncing that from July 1 (and here, let it be noted, the "docking" process is actually to date back) the goldfields allowances are to be amended as fol- lows: Officers in receipt of salaries £90 to £140 per annum, intrusive-£15 per annum. * * Officers in receipt of salaries from £150 to £350 per annum-£25 per . annum.

THE HEAT RING AND ITS MACHINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

THE HEAT RING AND ITS MACHINATIONS. To, fix upon the actual member!; of what is. popularly called the "Meat Ring" is at once impossible and unpro- fitable. We are frequently told, both within the House and without, that such a ring does not exist, but the fact that there does exist a combination of butch- ers, dealers, squatters, and auctioneers is proved beyond all cavil by an over- whelming weight of circumstantial evi- dence, and also by the suspicious unani- mity with which movements in connec- tion with'the control of the meat-market take place. These persons 60 manipu- late the meat supply of the colony as to make every human being within its bord- ers the victims of their proSt-mongering tactics. * * . * * In this connection it is interesting to dive a little into history. Until the year 1887 the ta* on live stock did not exist, but in that year the old Legisla- tive Council appointed a Tariff Commis- sion, which recommended the imposition cf a duty of ls. per head on sheep a...

Sunday Times. SUNDAY, AUGUST 7, 1898. THE COMING TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

cSrntkg fîmes* ; SUNDAY, AUGUST 7, 1898. THE COMING TARIFF. The people of this colony will do well to keep OIL the alert respecting the Tariff ' Bill which is to be introduced by the Government during the present session. Âs is well known, the Government are under pledges to reduce many and to abolish some of the food . duties, and it was only the mat- ] ing of these promises which saved them from extinction at the be ormnino; of the session. Those who assisted them in that crisis imagined that this promise would be kept, both in the letter and the spirit, but there are not wanting signs that the Forrest Ministry are np to their old trick of keeping their pledges to the ear and breaking them to the sense. * * * * Straws, it is proverbially said, ehow which way the wind blows. And lately one or two political straws have shown clearly enough the eddyings of the fiscal ' current. The motion of Mr. Xyall Hall in favor of a duty on imported bricks was the first feeler, and the recent in-...

SCIENCE AMONG THE SAVAGES. HOW THE NATIVES OF THIBET MANAGED TO MAKE FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

SCIENCE AMONG THE SAVAGES. HOW THE NATIVES OF THIBET MAN- AGED TO MAKE FIRE. It has been less than 100 rears ance civi- lised humanity need many old devices for the purpose of obtaining fire. In this country, then claiming to be " enlightened," the tinder box, with steel flint, was the apparatus most generally used. However, if there was no tinder box in the house, the old flint-lock musket, with a few grains of powder in the pan, together with a few shreds of paper or greased rags, were considered a household ne- cessity. Rubbing sticks together until they were fired by friction was the method used by the savages of that time in nearly all the lands of the globe. There was one single ex- ception, however, to di of the above, as well as any of lie more common methods ot "strik- ing light," and that method was practiced by a rode tribe of semi-savages inhabiting eas- tern Thibet. Carious as it may seem, these, rude savages obtained fire by strictly scien- tific principles, which invo...

GREAT STATESMAN AS LONG LIVERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

GRUT STATESMAN AS LONG LIVERS During the last few weeks, since the deaths of Mr. Gladstone and Prince Bis- marck took place, a common remark has been to the effect that it is very wonderful that a. man who worked at such intense pressure all through hie life should live to the great age of 88, or 65 years after first entering upon hie parliamentary career. So toilsome is a statesman's life, and such a heavy strain does it put upon his constitution, that one would hardly con- sider it conducive to a lengthy stay in the world. Yet it is a remarkable fact that statistics compiled from the lives of a dozen of the most famous statesmen of modern times show that they nearly all reached a venerable age, and that some of the brightest stars among them lived the longest. i To begin with, take Lord John Rus l selL whose brilliant career will never be forgotten. He died just 20 years ago, j at the great age of 85, and this was neariy ?5 years after he first entered Parliament- as member for Ta...
