TURF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898
TURF NOTES. (By "Young Un.") Fifty pounds to nothing is worth cutting for everyone will admit, and the Sydney '"'Referes" thinks likewise, yet this is their offer for the tipster who is lucky enough to select die first, second and third horses in the Mel- bourne Cup. It's a rather large order to pick 1, 2 and 3, in any race, but when the race is the Melbourne Cup event, ths order becomes a hundred times larger, but it is to be done, and, as the "Referee" says, a handful of tenners is worth trying for. * " * * * Bookmakers in Melbourne do not seem inclined to incur much liability on the Cups, and in consequence exe- cuting a. commission over there is out of the question. According to an ex- change there was a commission to back Merloolas for the Melbourne Cup in the market last week, but very little money could be obtained about the big Queens- lander, and the commission v^was a failure. If there was any money to be obtained another horse would have been well backed for one of the Cu...

PIPING HOT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898
PIPING flOT. (By Emily Zolen) Thus a correspondent under the above caption: Bias the Premier gone off his doti He has always been the first to go for the people who attempted to cry stinking fish, and now, just at the moment when he is required to display some sort of cheap heorism and a little common sense, all his gaseous courage goes bung, and 'e dunno where 'e are. At one time, in common with many other idiots, I used to rtiinlr the immensity of adipose tissue covered a little muscle and grit, but the bubble of our momentary infatu- ation is pricked, the Great Panjandrum has gone bung, the rockers has gone up, exploded a multitude of pryrotechnic stars, and down comes the stick.

THE NEW LAND BILL. "BLOCKERS." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898
TEE NEW LAND BILL 'BLOCKERS." We cannot speak too highly of the efforts made by the Minister of Lands (Mr. George Throssell), to get people settled on the land. One of his most commendable proposals is the "blocker1"' system, which provides for catting up land adjacent to towns, farms, or tim- ber centres, in blocks of from half-an acreto30 acres. This system has work- ed admirably in South Australia, where it has been in operation for several years. At Port Broughton, which may be taken as a sample of such towns, in a few months 50 or 60 blocks were taken up, and almost immediately 20 or 30 cottages, varying from one to six or seven rooms, were built by the wage earners in the district. There blocks were soon fenced, cleared, and tilled, and then followed tile planting of many with fruit trees, vines, etc., rooted cut- tings, and trees being supplied by the Agricultural Bureau for the purpose. It was surprising the improvenemnt wrought in a short time, lt helped largely to keep a s...

JÜST AWFUL! -o "Now, you said yesterday that every ¡ time I used the word 'awful' you would ! check me, and you're not doing it. I I wish you would," said Mrs. Sp adina. "Very welL I shall not forget," re- plied Mr. Spadina. "It's an absurd word." 'T know it is just awful the way I use it-" "There you go again.' I know, but I was just telling you. Itll be awful hard work to give it up, but Fm going to do it if you'll keep checking me." Mr. Spadina looked at her inquir- ingly, but she was intent upon her sew- ing. -.ou've just said it again," he ob- served. ';Said what!' "You said it would be awful bard to give it up." "So it wily she said spiritedly. "Why, Andrew, you've no idea how hard it is to quit using a word or expression once you get used to it.

SHOULD WOMEN HAVE A VOTE[?] (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898
SHOULD WOMEN HAVE A VOTE! (To the Editor.) Sir,-This is a query at present much discussed in political and outside circles ; and like every other measure of conse- quence, has called forth many cham- pions and opponents. I have heard many pet theories expounded as to the evil of allowing women to enter the pale of politics ; but am still a believer in womanhood suffrage. We hear it said by many that women should not enter the political arena, as her duties, direct- ly and indirectly, will not allow her todo so, and that by so doing she would neg- lect her home and domestic append- ages, etc. This is simply rot. Does the duty of recording a vote debar a man from attending to his work and looking after his wife and family, if he has one? And the same would apply to women ; and again all have not homes, but a great many are their own bread- winners, under these circumstances hard enough for anything. Why then should they not have the ODportnniry of ameliorating their conditions of earn...

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. (By Bungarra.) To bim that .bas shall be giren, and to him that has not shall be taken awav the damed little .that he hasn't eren got.-Fátman's Gos npeL The way of the transgressor is hard. Judas Iscariot sold his reputation for 30 pieces of silver. If he had lived in West- Australia he would have sold his party for 30 miles of goldfields railway. And then the Premier of the time would have sold him by going back on his poiiey as foreshadowed in the Governor's speech and refused the purchase price, that is, the railways he had promised. Judas had the good merit to go out and hang himnolf afterwards. * * * * Without any reference whatever to the above paragraph, the writer notices that two goldfields members are still alive. * * * * John Deficit Forrest's budget speech on Thursday night was a long apology fin- the Hon.

ACTA DIÜMA. i Labour troubles fomented on piece- work. That's the latest! Wanted-to learn more of the cya- nide tailings question from the miner's point of view. Another large meeting of miners at Norseman bas "reeoluted" in favor oi the Esperance-Coolgardie hue. The Mount Magnet paper says that a Cue maniac ate a whole copy of the "Murchison Times." He must have been a maniac. Certain mine managers deny that the fumes from cyanided tailings are dan- gerous.
