[?] from [?]ome. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin.' [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

(By THE OLD PLAYGOER.) ** Leave off your damnable faces, and begin.' On the whole the public cannot he said to have shown too ranch favour to the Veriscope, which hardly had the amount of patron- age it deserved, and might have fairly been expected to obtain. It is apparently cer- tain that Perth playgoers care none too much for the exhibitions that " come like shadows, so de- part." TheOxy-hydrogen limelight pictures introduced by Snazelle had but limited appreciation. The Biographe lately brought out by Mr. Harper entailed a loss upon that gentleman, while the Ada Del- roy Company's cinématographe re- quired all the backing those clever artists could give it to bolsterit up. Probably the only exhibition of the kind which has really proved a success in Perth was the first Lumiere machine, which was shown at the Olde Bng lishe Fayre last year. That entertaining series of pictures did very well for a time, but I strongly suspect that Messrs. Jones and Lawrence are uulikely to try it ...

FIRE AND WATER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

FIRE AND WATER. In the railway yard there are two artesian bores, which are supposed to yield 800,000 gallons per diem. A paternal Government proposes to pump half a million gallons daily from these bores into the reservoir at Mount Eliza, the trifling fact that the water is not fit to drink being passed over as unworthy of con- sideration. In view of these facts, it does seem exceedingly oddthat when the Customs shed took fire on Thursday night, every drop of water had to be obtained from the street mains, and the engines as usual dribbled, and squirted, and sputtered at a conflagration with which they were entirely unable to cope. Did the firemen forget the existence of the supply, or had the magnifico in charge gone for a walk, or was the fact that the fire and water could not be brought together for more than a quarter oran hour merely the latest proof of the ineptitude of the ruling authorities. Really the Metropolitan Fire Brigade could hardly be more distinguished if it were ...

A VERY GOOD TEMPLAR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

A VERY GOOD TEMPLAR. A New Zealand paper tells the following good story:-"Not so long ago two individuals residing; within iooo miles of Lawrence had the luck to draw a horse in one of" Tattersalls big sweeps on the Mel- bourne Cup. This good fortune was a red-letter day in the township, and naturally all who took an in- terest in the matter anxiously awaited. the result of the race. Anticipating that the luck}' investors would be pleased to know the name' of the winner as soon as possible, a mem- ber of a well-known firm of Dunedin . bookmakers wired the . above named investors that the horse they had drawn had won the Cup. The news was received with a. cheer, and one of the benefi- ciaries was heartily congratu- lated on his winning some thou- sands. * Well boys,' said he, * you know I am a Good Templar, so cannot shout drinks ; but if you'll come up the street a bit I'll buy a. little fruit for you !' The boys tear- fully and sorrowfully declined, sub- sequently enjoying a hearty...

ORIGINAL POEM LIGHTS ALONG THE ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

ORIGINAL POEM LIGHTS ALONG THE KOAD. T noted, as I wander'd back towards tte City bounds, "Che long-stretched streets, o'erhung by mist and filled with warring sounds, While, row on row, in spaced array on either side were reared The lights that shone and grew and waned until they disappeared. Above, the night was dense and dark nor moon nor star look'd down To pierce with pure, unsullied ray the fog that hid the town ; Yet there was light enough beneath from ev*ry yellow blaze To guide the feet aud point a path thro' all those devious, ways. Then, as I watched with thoughtful eye the far-flung shafts of light, Which flamed across the City, prone beneath the Car of Night, I found therein a parable to comfort those who weep To those who may have lost their way, and those fast sunk in sleep. The City was the World ; and all the loud, discordant strife That rose and throbbed proceeded from the groaning Wheel of Life, Which, rolled in unfamiliar grooves formed wrong by feeble man, Had g...

HOW THE MONEY GOES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

HOW* THE MONEY GOES. What do. the Perth people think of the facts concerning the York and Greenhills railway, dis- closed in the last report of the Lands Department ? This line, the Premier proudly announced, "was, as an agricultural railway, to be built out of revenue, with a special view of opening up new country to settlement." The usual tall talk about " attracting popu- lation" was vented with sicken- ing fluency, and of course the bill passed as the Premier desired. Indeed, at that time, had he wanted to pass a bill for painting stray dogs in stripes of pink and green, the subservient majority' would have said "ditto to you, sir." It was pointed out at the time that the railway could not and would not .pay, but the "attra tion of population" nostrum served ns as a Buflicient excuse. Now, it turns out that no population is to be attracted at all, for the highly satisfactory reason that the settlers already on the ground have token up e.ery inch of the land which will be in any ...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN gimtöag States. SUNDA V, JANUARY ç, 189S. MEN AND MONEY. Daring the year just closed the Treasurer has contrived to extract from the people of this colony the vast .som of £2,843,775 3s. ld., a levy of a little more than £19 ls. ld. upon every man. woman, and child of the mean number of the population, which was for the period in question 149,246. When the sums received for services rendered by the railways, tram- ways, postal, telegraphic, and telephonic departments are de- ducted, the sum is reduced to £1,572,865 8s. lOd. ; for these! branches of the public service i earned in all £1,270,909 Us. 3d. Bat even this reduced amount is equal to an impost of more than £*0 ls. 9d. npon every inhabitant, old and young, rich and poor. The workers of course pay for the non-workers, and as there is an average of four dependents . to every worker, it follows that the ordinary nia-n of action stands liable to tbe State for £50 8s. 9d., and as a matter of fact pays the money...

FASHIONS AND FANCIES. . Oar gay race . week opened on Friday with a garden party given by Sir Gerard and Lady Smith, in the Government Hout-e grounds. The afternoon was delightfully cool and bright, and a pleasant effect was produced by the green leaves with here and there bright touches of fragrant flowers. The headquarters band played some excellent selections. His Excellency and Lady Smith received their guests at the en- trance of the grounds, and all who were present spent a thoroughly enjoyable time. Lady Smith wore a gown of soft gray and white figured silk, richly trimmed with lace «md ribbon; hat of black straw, with plumes. Miss Smith was I prettily dressed in pink brocade, trimmed with cream lace; pink straw hat, with roses and grass. The Derby day is an event to be remembered in Perth, as last Sa- turday is the first time in this colony that the winner has been presented with the blue ribbon, although he did not appear to be in the least bit grateful for all the honour o...

THE SECOND TEST MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

THE SECOND TEST MATCH. Honours easy ! England one Australia one. If anything, the latter haye a bigger 'victory to boast <>f, but, on the other hand, be it remembered that the' wicket in the first game was in excellent order from start to finish, and then the best team won, whereas, in the match just concluded, the pitch gave our after the first 400 runs had been scored. This is proved beyond all possible,- pro- bable shadow of doubt (as the Grand Inquisitor wonld say) by two prominent facts. The first is the " tailing off" of the home batting after Trott had gone, I when nobody could get to 20, and the second is the " raggedness" of i the English score I "The wicket did not crumble, I neither did it rain," says someone. No, it literally " scaled," and when ' you, who play the game fairly, maybe, and understand it well, think what a "scaling" wicket means-we had them here on the Association Ground two years ago and even as late as last season you will agree with MacLar...

SMITH'S SLEEPING SUIT. A BUNBURY ROMANCE. FOUNDED ON PACT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

SMITH'S SLEEPING SUIT. A BUNBURY ROMANCE. FOUNDED ON PACT. Down to Bunbury for Christmas sped my genial friend John Smith. He was going to stay a week or so with members of his kith. Smith was quiet, neat and natty in his usual array,, But at night he wore pyjamas that would shame the hues of day. Much John Smith enjoyed his visit much he flirted on the pier In the moonlight (in the daytime his thoughts mainly ran on beer). He got fat, and brown, and lazy, as a man is sure to do, If he lets the sun get at him-likewise beer and victuals, too. But, alas ! -the dreaded morning when he must return to Perth Came, lelentless: Smith departed from that lovely spot of earth Peerless Bunbury, whose butter (manu . factored in the East) And whose Premier have earned it im- mortality at least. But, in his -hurried packing, Smith for- got to put away Á superb suit of pyjamas-pink and yellow, charged with gray And-I grieve to have to state it, for it really was a sin Smith's lite host gave those p...

From Map to [?]ap. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

Jra gag Í0 gag. One of the greatest pests of modern life is the so-called society newspaper. Its functions are necessarily prying and inqoisi torial; and it lives mainly by "battening on scandal small and great, and fattens by-creating' dis -sention and social discord. Usually its columns are filled with the malicious chatter of the male bounder or the female scandal- monger ; and-itis the great .apostle and prophet of snobbery and un- charitableness. Persons of re- finement who r gard the family . life as sacred in its privacy loathe its impudence, while the .only people it gratifies are those whose ostentation and vain-glory ?call for i^eboke rather than adver -tisement. Very often it ts a creep- ing thing which insinuates itself into the domestic circle only for the pnrpose of seeking out tronble, .and of expanding; it. It does not fulfil a sing-Je asefni fonction ; ita chronicling?; of small beer and its glorification of no- bodies are degrading to jour- nalistic literature, and...

LATEST SPORTING. FREMANTLE BICYCLE CLUB. A. MATCH MEETING. SHAW v. S BELLGROVE. THE LATTER DEFEATED. Despite the extreme heat pre- vailing at the Fremantle Oval yes- terday afternoon, the large number of spectators who attended the League meeting held under the control of the Fremantle Bicycle Club were treated to a splendid exhibition of riding by many of the competitors. Chief interest was centred in the match between two rising young local riders, viz., Shaw and Snellgrove, over three distances, for a stake of £25 aside. The supporters of the two contestants were worked up to a high pitch of excitement, and much partisianship was displayed on either side. The other events were well con rested and splendid finishes were witnessed. Following are the results : HALF-MILE HANDICAP (JÊ10). Prizes: £6,£S,£1. First Heat. Levien, C. J., 45yds. ... 1 Dunn, A.

THE GOLDEN FLEECE. (By A GOLDFIELDS EXPERT.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

THE GOLDEN FLEECE. (Br A GOLDFIELDS EXPEKT.) Aj very gratifying change in the weather has of late greatly improved j the spirits of the goldfields folk.

Supplanting the Linotype. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898

Supplanting the Linotype. Can it be that the Linotype, after superseding the type foun- dry and the composing frame is to be thrust aside by a new mechani-   cal wonder? This is what we are requested to believe by Mr. G. W. Stevens, the writer of an article on the Monotype in the New Review. It is the invention of a Mr. Lan- ston, an American, and it is to be seen at work in Leadenhall-street. It is described as "one of the greatest marvels of all the marvel- ous history of machinery, the crown of over five centuries of de- velopment in the most vital of all   civilising arts." It consists of two parts; the one resembling a typewriter; while the other is the setting machine. These are inde- pendent of each other. The man at the machine begins by setting an index, and this fixes the length of the line required. "Then he   commences playing on the keys as with a typewriter ; only each key, instead of writing a letter, punches two round holes in a roll. So he ...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 4.] To J. R. A. CONOLLY, ESQ., M.L.A. DEAR SIR,-Doubtless the his- tory of your election as member for Dundas remains fresh in your memory. Nevertheless men sud- denly raised to prominence ofttimes forget the causes of their elevation, and need to be reminded of them in the plainest language possible. It is to this recapitulation of your political history that I first desire to direct your attention. You were opposed in the contest of May last by Mr. Arthur Austin, Mayor of Norseman, and Mr. E. A. Harney, the brilliant young Irish orator, who has since made his mark by the ex- ercise of great forensic abilities in this good city of Perth. Many causes contributed to give you the victor}Tover these formidable com- petitors. Mr. Austin, as Mayor of Norseman, was jealously regarded by the good folk of Esperance, . while his position as a mine manager had not assisted his popu- larity amongst the . working men of the town over which he pre- sided. Besid...
