FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

FEOlff DAY TODAY. <BT VOS.) Th» appended letter -which I have jost received contains some signifi- cant queries:-As you seem to have a certain amount of backbone, I should be glad if yon would ask in the House what will be the amount of commission pay- able to Mr. Carruthers, the advising; engineer of W.A.. Government rn Lon- don, in case the Coolgardie water scheme is caried out "departmentally." I understand that on all orders placed in .England Mr. Carruthers will receive a commission of three per cent Three per cent, on a few millions is worth get : ting, and the recipient is one of the board of so-called experts who have ap- proved of Mr. OX!oonor's original (?) scheme. You will have no difficulty in ascertaxning-the fact that Mr Carruthers has received over £20,000, by way of commission from the taxpayers of this colony within a comparatively brief period -of time, on orders placed in Eng- land for the W. Al Government Rail- ways. I am not ia a position to say wheth...

THE DRUM OF TEHUAHUATE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

THE mm OF TEHÜAHÜATE. Batist! rattat! rat-a4at-*4attat! The sound is a solemn one, and to any one but a man of tito strongest nerves it is bound to be disturbing. On the night when the moon attains her full, from the beginning of the hour before midnight to the end of the hour after, it goes like that, as if some in- visible drummer were marching through the dark places of the night sounding aa alarm to inviable cohorts of evil spirits. Even here, in the heart of Lon- don town, where millions sleep all about one, I must admit that to me it sounds full of mystery and dread and an in- expressibly creepy, nameless horror. I have waked from my first nap to hear its monotonous note echoing through tile silent house, making the stillness seem more grave-like, the dark- ness more palpable, the emptiness more empty, and, at tile same time, populous with, dim, moving shadows, one seems almost to touch at each separate tap of that eerie dram. I have striven, time and again, to school myself t...

HINTS FOR MR. EWING. STRANGE DIVORCE CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

' HLNTS FOR MR. EWING STRANGE DIVORCE CUSTOMS. Easy are -the methods of settling do íáestic difficulties in Upper Burma. When a husband finds that his better half is not the" unalloyed blessing he had been led to think, he calls into his house all the old men and women of his village and expresses his desire to di- vorce her, and a trial by candle is prose- cuted. The husband and the wife are each given a candle, which they light simul- taneously at the order of the eldest person present and place in the middle of the floor. Then everyone in the house sits round and watches to see which candle burns out first. If the wife's does so the husband has a right to divorce her, even against her will, and turn herand her relations out of his house without more ado. If, on the other hand, the husband's candle burns out first, the wife has the option and right of either refusing a divorce or agreeing to it, and tunung her husband and his relations ont of the house, which, with all goods and c...

THE £. S. D. COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 7 August 1898

j THE £. S. D. COLUMN. I -. j ("By Darin.") I -i ? i. ! Now that the people of Perth, and Fre , mantle are beginning to feel the pinch j of dull times, perhaps they will awaken to the fact that a good deal of the result is only a conse- quence of their own shortsight- edness and want of enterprise. The money from the goldfields has been the means of making Perth and Fremantle the places they are to-day, and yet eight out of ten men, if asked to put £10 or £20 into a mining spec., would tell you that they "have had enough" of mining. Their idea - is to buy land, build nice residences and business places, or lend money at a fancy inte- rest They forget that the main in- dustry of the colony needs active de- velopment, and failing this, matters will become quieter than they now are. There are hundreds of thousands of acres of highly auriferous country on the fields which, with a moderate amount of exploration and expense, j could be made to yield a good return, and, yet, wherever one g...

OUR - CmiTAMTöH STITÜTIONS. THE OLD MIN'S DEPOT SOME SHOCKING STOKES. Conséquent upon some recent expres- sions in the press, an inquiry ia now being held into the condition ol the Old Men's Depot at Mount Elim. The fol- lowing is a portion pf the evidence so far taken, which throwB a lurid light upon the condition, of some of the pub- lic institutions of the colony. Some of this we have reason to believe, will be ezceeded in horrifying detail when we are permitted an equally «¡«rjiAing and public inquiry. However, what follows is quite bad enough for a start: The witness (Thomaß Fisher) de- scribed the circumstances of the death of four inmates of the institution, which took place, he said, during the absence of Mr. Wade; on leave. The first death referred to was that of the man Dong-las, who, he considered, had been shamefully neglected. He «as left lying in a wooden divisñm, whlcH wasj£a|led the .

j MINING. I -? J LATEST NEWS AND NOTES. It is calculated that when the 40-head mill is at work at- tlie Ivanhoe the re- turns will reach about 7,000oz. monthly, which will roughlv mean a profit of £200,000 peryear. A goldfields exchange says that an in- teresting problem will shortly be solved by tiae 400ft. workings from the north pump shaft of the Great Boulder, namely, what has become of the Ivanhoe lodes north of the «ross reef which cuts them .off near the north boundary of the mine. It is improbable that the lodes have been.-orb-off, but so far no trace has been found of any throw east or west following the coarse of tile reef.
