FOOTBALL (Bj Barracker). The Pirates intend holding a social at the Governor Broome Hotel on the 2nd of September, Messrs. T. Woollar F. BIL E. Fowler, and J. Punch form the committee to arrange the same. * * * * The Pirates were completely sur I prised by the Sydneys in their' match on the Esplanade Reserve. The four points which gave the Sydney team the victory were obtained by a splendid kick by Rotten. T. Wooli er. Gorman, Wil&ins and Ball played well for the Pirates, as did also Brier, Cook, Perry, Arcus, Davis and Rotten, for the win- ners. * * * * Ball, of the Pirates, made one of the finest runs of the season in the match, and was prevented from scoring just on theline after running the length- of the ground.

ROWING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

BOWING MEMS. (Bj An Old Un). Whether it is the close approach of the finishing matches of the football sea- son, or the anxiety of the rowing men to get to the river after their "long ab- sence, or, as many think, owing to the wants of the members being better cater- ed for, the two local clubs cannot com- plain of the attendances or of the lack of interest being shown by one and all, for every afternoon the large- at- tendances betoken more interest be- ing shown, and promises that the present season will finish up far better than the most sanguine an- ticipated, from the little interest that was shown in the early part of the year, To my mind, I feel sure htbis is simply brought about by the clubs' executives awakening to the fact that some induce- ment must be offered to attract then members down, and when down, by the aid of races, to keep alive the amusement that one and all desire, and this is the secret of the great success of the races held by both the Swan River and West Au...

ADULT SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

ADULT SUFFRAGE. There seems to be little doubt that certain supporters of the Government, both in and outside Parliament, are trying to bring about Adult Suffrage. This is a project that has long been ad- vocated by this paper, and those who are striving to carry it into effect shall receive a hearty support. All the same it is somewhat confusing to find persons with no liberal tendencies in any other known direction now suddenly, and ap- parently without motive, bursting forth as the promulgators of an up-to-date democratic measure. This naturally makes one suspicious ; but happily a per- son has not got to go far to search for a motive. This is not the first time by a long way, and certainly won't be the last, that people have hidden themselves behind a woman's articles of wearing apparel. The spectacle is a peculiar one of persons who have hitherto work- ed all they knew to deprive thousands   of men of their just voting power un- expectedly launching themselves as p...

SEMPER EADEM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

SEMPER EÂDSM. A number of prominent Perth rea dents attended by invitation the work of Messrs. W. J. George and Co. on the 9th inst, for the purpose of witness ing the casting of the first battery-box ever made in the colony. Among th number were Sir George Shenton, Sir James Le Steere, Messrs. Wilson, Old ham, Wallace, Kingsmill, Oats M.'sL.A. The casting was to have been carried out at 3 o'clock, but just before that hour- Sir John Forrest,, who had promised to be present, and who in all probability would have seized the oppor tunity for making another of his im portant political announcements, noti fied by telephone that he could not attend until 3.30. The visitors wandered aimlessly around the works until half past 3 and no Sir John. Four o'clock came, and still the august visitor had not put in an appearance, and one by one the visitors disappeared in order tc attend to other business, and tie casting had to bo carried out in the presence of only about half the gentlemen who ha...

AN ENTERPRISING FIRM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

AN ENTERPRISING FIRM The first battery-box that has been,   turned out in West Australia was suc- cessfully cast at the Black Swan Foundry, Wellington-street, on Tues- day, the 9th inst. The casting of huge parts of machinery is always attended by considerable risk, but Messrs. W. J. George and Company had determined to take the risk in order to demonstrate to the public generally that such under- takings could be carried out success- fully in the colony; and their efforts were successful, as the big castings were perfected without a single hitch. Three tons of metal were used in the casting, and although this, to those who know somewhat of the vast scale in which similar operations are carried out in older countries, may appear but a small thing, to us in Western Australia it marks a departure in enterprise, for which the firm are entitled to the con- gratulations of the community and the support of all requiring machinery of the nature just turned out by the firm.

MANOUVRES OF THE LOCAL LAND SHARK. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

MANOUVRES OF THE LOCAL LAND SHARK. A word on behalf of legitimate I land agents, and also a word of cau- tion to thrifty persons who feel dis- posed to purchase land allotments on the monthly instalment principle is, in ous opinion, necessary. .During the past week a number of complaints have 'reached this office concerning the doings of certain individuals who, profession- ally, are known as land agents, but who, judging by the facts which have been | brought under our notice, are neither more nor less than general swindlers. A working man bought an allotment for £45, and paid instalments, which up to date, total about £30. Twenty-five shillings per month was the rate at which he agreed to purchase, and he had scarcely paid £â, Le., four monthly instalments, before the enterprising land agent mortgaged the land to an- other individual, who subsequently j foreclosed, and re-sold the land. From ] j what can be gathered from the receipts and other documents in the hands of I the unfor...

The Sunday Times. SUNDAY, AUGUST 28, 1898. OUR PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

I - SUNDAY, AUGUST 28, 1898. j OUR PROSPECTS. j It is useless to attempt to disguise the fact that the Premier's Budges Speech has had a most disastrous effect upon public confidence, and conse- quently upon local trade and commerce. Gloze it over as we may, the fact re- mains the same, that the regretful tale of past extravagance and present econo- my the Premier had to tell has had a most depressing result upon the colony generallly, and that business, bad enough before, is infinitely worse to-day. And bad as things are now, there is every- thing to indicate that they will become worse, and that we are face to face with the toughest and roughest twelve months we have experienced since the discovery of gold. For all this the country may thank the Government, for it was then policy of reckless expenditure, of bor- row, boom, and burst, which attracted thousands to our shores who are now departing helter skelter from them. It is a curious fact that every day wir-j nesses aa immense m...

THE PERTH SURFACE DRAINAGE SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

THE PERTH SURFACE DRAINAGE SCHEME. Ou or about Tuesday next the daily papers will announce that no further funds will be forthcoming from the Gov- j eminent for the prosecution of the Perth surface drainage scheme, the city coun- cil hairing received an intimation .to this effect. It will be remembered that the Cabinet promised the sum of £100,000 for the purpose of effect - this work. Of this amount £20.000 has already been paid over, and of this sum £14,000 has been ex- pended, leaving a balance of about £6,000. Kow the Ministry has notified that no further grants need be expected, so that the work must now close. With the summer coming on apace this is a truly pleasant prospect, and the ces- sation of the undertaking will also have the effect of largely increasing - the numbers of our unemployed. Western Australia is truly becoming a pleasant place to live in!

OLD- THE PEIZE RING BATTLES JOB GOSS AND TOM ALLIN. FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP ([?]) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

OLD - THE PEIZE RING BATTLES JOB GOSS AND TOM ALLIN. FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP (j) They do'-stränge things in America, but perhaps one of the strangest they ever did was to fancy that a fight be- tween Joe Goss-and Tom Allen could be accepted in this country as one for Hie championship, for, as will be seen pre- sently, th» credentials of the "men for the r>ositioii<»Qsist in the fact that Goss had been beaten by Mace, while Allon ? has been-similarly served by Gallagher and M*Coole, two heroes who would hardly be»msideredirt for the champion- ship. If, bowever, the fight is to be called merely one forrthe f^vftJTipî^nghip of the United States we have not the slightest objection, and only hope the citizens of the go-ahead Republic are delighted to think that among their numerous pugilists they cannot produce one theyconstaerequal to-even a second rate man like Tom Allen. Having thus relieved our mfnritf and-cleared away a possible blunder, we proceed at once with our task. ...
