OLD- TIME PRIZE RING BATTLES. (Continued from our last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

OLD-TIME PRIZE BING BATTLES. (Continued from oar last rsno.) 46. Caunt again succeeded in catch- ing Bendy by the neck, Tinder Es power- ful ann, threw, and fell heavily upon him, but at the same time came with great force against the ground himself. 47. Caunt led off with the left, catch - lng Bendy on the forehead ; Bendy re- treated, but met Caunt as he came in with his left on his distorted phiz., dropped, and looked up in derision. (Artpeal from this species of general- ship now seemed idle, and was not re- peated.) The succeeding ten rounds were Sought in the same style. Little worthy of note occurred. Each in his turn ob- tained some trifling advantage in the hiting or falling, but neither exhibited «ny disposition to say "Enough!" al- though Bendigo, from his repeated falls, oegan to evince symptoms of fatigue. ¡The confusion round the ring continued most annoying, although the ropes and ?takes were still preserved entire.

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE GOVERNMENT STORES. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE GOVERNMENT STOßES. To the Editor. Sir,-I notice in your last edition of the "Sunday Times'7 under {he head of "Our Grievance Column," a letter re- ferring to the mismanagement of tile Government Stores Department, and as another who knows, I should like tootsie that not only is every word of it true, but according to a rumor, this is only ai tithe ot what may be expected in the new store at North Fremantle from such a figure-head. What with lengthening the hours of labor, reducing of hands and wages, quite a merry time is being con- templated, and God only knows what may emanate from such a man, when he can ruthlessly reduce the salary of a lad from 18s to 10s per week in »me fell swoop, and yet possibly Eave (he front to put himself down for a £10 rise-on tho estimates. Hoping you will also publish this for the further information of the public, I remain, yours etc, j A. UniZKM. August I, 1898.

MR. THROSSELL AND THE NEW LAND BILL. To the Editor "Sunday Times." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

MR. THROSSELL AMI THE NEW I LAND BELL. I To the Editor "Sunday Times." Sir,-Being only a new arrival here from New South Wales you may think I am rather presuming in airing my views through the Press, but on perus j ing Mr. Throssell's delineation of the I New Land Bill, I was so much struck by the broad basis of the Bill in general,, that I would like to make a few com- ments thereon, and give my impressions I of the W.Â. Land Act, as far as I am I conversant with it. The main feature j of the Bill in question is its tendency to bring about "Closer Settlement" of de- sirable classes, viz., working men of all trades and dempninations of labor ; and practical farmers. The former (as Mr. Throssell correctly observes) have left their wives and families (in the majority of cases) in other colonies, and came "West" to win bread for them, and who because of the high rents and prices asked by land and property owners, near populated centres, cannot maintain a home as easily here as by send...

CORRESPONDENCE. THOSE OPPOSITION SPEECHES. To the Editor "Sunday Times." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

CORßESPONDINCE. THOSE OPPOSmO^" S^EECHÉS. To the Editor "Sunday Times." Sir,-I need scarcely say thai in care- fully perusing your verbatim reports of the above, that it not only afforded me pleasant pastime this last two Sundays, Bat also much more edification than a bushel-full of dry and musty sermons delivered by the Archbishop of Canter- bury on an annual salary of £17,000. . It is strikingly significant that al- though a constant reader of your two daily contemporaries, that I have never yet seen published therein the most salient darts from the Opposition side of the House. Logically considered, one can only assume that this omission ito give pubUcity to all the most essen- tial and forcible points (from a Parlia- mentary standpoint) which evidently emanates from the Opposition benches, is a sinister desire to discredit the Op- position, and to exultingly cry that there is nothing like "leather" so far as the Government and its supporters are concerned.

His house, which is a'rudely built; shanty of one small t^fm, contauung a plank bed, table and chaff, jg constructed within, and completely covered by a hage iran cage, about 10 feet high and 12 feet square, similar to those used for immuring wild beasts ia a menagerie. On no pretence whatever is he pmiiMvA outside the narrow confines of this barbarous prison. Two sen- tries armed with rifles watch religiously over him day and night, being relieved evaery two hours, and they have strict injunctions to mercilessly shoot down the prisoner should he make a dash for deeply yearned liberty. They are rigorously forbidden, to hold any intercourse whatever with the degraded officer under pain of the most severe penalties Re- cently a sergeant was reduced to the tanks for dnigning to answer in a moment of ab- straction an interpolation by Dreyfus as to when the mails would arrive.

THE NEW MINING BILL. DISSATISFACTION ON THE GOLDFIELDS. MR. GILBERTS VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

THE NEW MINING BILL. DISSATISFACTION ON THE GOLDFIELDS. ME, GILBERTS VIEWS. Mr. F. C. Gilbert, one of the members of the late Boyal P-nrnmiagion: on Mirang, returned to the goldfields on August 3, and was at once interviewed as to the new Goldfields Bill by the Boulder " Evening Star." Mr. Gilbert emphatic- ally disapproves of the measure, and spoke out in unmistakeable langnage concerning it. "The new Bill now before Pariia mant is almost a travesty on the labors of the Commission,'' remarked Mr Gilbert. "We based our whole recom- mendations on the institution of Mining Boards on the fields, so that local condi- tions would be conserved and friction stayed between the central department and the fields. In tites Bill there is not the least mention of these boards.

REAL LIFE IN FICTION. LIVING ORIGINALS OF GREAT ADTHORS' CHARACTERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

REAL LIFE U FICTION. LíVüvG ORIGINALS OF GREAT ADTHOBS' CHARACTERS. The characters in the writings of most eminent novelists are living realities. We see them around ns; we recognise them in our aoouaintances, and, if not blinded by vanity, frequently in our- selves. Who has not numbered among j his friends some individual who is the living, walking image of a character j made immortal by the pen of a Dickens i or a Thackeray Î And rest assured that while you are recognising in someone I else a character that agrees in every .de-1 tail with one that the world has learned [ to laugh at or to love in the works of ] the great writers, someone else is dis Covering the same thing about you. The world is full of tile characters, eccentric, serious, and great, that literary genius has thrown & halo around. It is easy to ascribe a reason for this. Most of the characters rn the books of Thacke- ray, Diakens, Tennyson, Scott, and the j list of the great authors were drawn from lay fig...

FOOTBALL. VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

FOOTBALL. (By Barracker.) I VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. The match between Collingwood and South Melbourne, played on the Victoria Park, was a striking illustration of how a bit of dashing play by one man can change the whole aspect of a match. The South boys were leading when the third Quarter was started, but Sime, by really splendid play, ran the ball up to GUlard, who scored a goal. A minute or two later Sime again distinguished himself by securing the ball, made a n- other capital run, and passed to Smith, who also scored. This pat the Colling- wood boys in the best of spirits, while the spirit of tile South men were very much damped, and in the last quar- ter the Collingwood scored no less than 5 goals 5 behinds to their opponent's nil. When Sime put in his bit of good play, the Ckdlingwoods were to all ap- pearances hopelessly in the rear, but he put heart into the team, and as a result what looked like a bad beating was con- verted into a win by one goaL * * * * Up to half-time it wa...

DARING ATTEMPTED SAFE ROBBERY. THE THIEVES FOSTRATED. A SUCCESSFUL ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

DARING ATTEMPTED ; SAFE ROBBERY. [ THE THIEVES FOSTRATID. \ A SUCCESSFUL ESCAPE, In tile small hoars of yesterday morn- ing Mr. Davis, a barman, employed at the Criterion Hotel, in Hay-street, -was awakened by hearing a noise in the back yard of the hotel, as if heavy blows were being struck. He-got up and proceeded to make investigations, when he saw three men, dressed in great coats and slouch hats, endeavoring to break open a safe. On bis appearance the intruders at once decamped, without stopping to say " Good Morning'," or to exchange the time o' day with: the bannan. Mr. Davis at once communicated with the police, and Sub-Inspector Hogan and Corporal Watson proceeded to the hotel. There , tiley found a safe lying in the yard partiy broken open, and this was identi- fied by Mr. Herrington, the landlord of the hotel, as bis property. He stated that the safe contained about £150, but the contents were happily found to be quite intact, as the work of forcing open the iron had not ...

CONCERNING WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

COZENING WOMEN. J (By Corde&ii-) Notwithstanding the dreadful date of the weather, the ball in the Town Hall last night in aid of St . Bridget's School waa very largely attended, fully two hundred couples having put in an ap- pearance. There is every reason to hope that the very worthy cause will materially benefit by the pleasant gathering of Friday night. The ex- penses were infinitesimal, {¿nee the ex- cellent supper and etceteras ' were all donated by the ladies of Perth. An animated programme was in full swing when the midnight chime warned the present scribe away, but I trust space will be found in next week's paper for an article dealing with the ball from a woman's point of view. * * * * A statistician has been at the trouble of compiling a report showing the num- ber of ladies who, after passing out of Girton and Newnham during the last fifteen years, have condescended to toe marriage state.

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. "Better ten innocent men escape than one guilty man be convicted." —Parliamentary Scripture. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. (By Bungarra.) " Better ten innocent men escape than one j guilty man be convicted." j -Parliamentary Scripture. Dear Brethren,-The text from which this week's notes are taken is from St. Paul's Pistol to the Fenians, chapter and vase immaterial. Same old organ, same old tune, same old music with different hands at the bellows supplying the wind. Ewing has had the political pig by the ear all tho week, and is making it squeal on hix divorce propositions. The union cf a maa with another of die opposite sex is marriage; if he does it again with another female girl, that is Big Amy ; if he goes it some more, with a barmaid thrown in, that is Trigonome- try, or words to that effect, and must be sternly repressed as such. The single men in the House, strange to say, are the sternest moralists, but this, of course, is due to the verdant imma- turity of feminine inexperience.
