FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 January 1898
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [BY "FORTIS."] Under the new constitution of the League of Wheelmen now being drafted, provision is being made for the appointment of a tourists' board, whose powers will be somewhat similar to those en- trusted to the tourists' boards of New South Wales and Victoria. To this, the most important branch of cycling, little or no attention has been paid by the local govern- ing body. The principal duty of the board is the arrange- ment of a universal tariff at all accommodation houses, and hotels throughout the colony for the benefit of members of the league when on tour. Should the committee appointed by the couucil of the League of W.A. Wheelmen for the purpose of redrafting a constitution and revising the rules not have com- pleted their work, there will be an outcry from many quarters. Those who have the interests of cycling as a sport at heart recognise the extreme desirability of a new state of things being brought about be- fore the next racing seas...

Sir Jerry Builder, P.M., L.J,K.ML, K.C.M.G., complaining that at the last meeting of the Lodge the members had neglected to exhibit a proper amount of rever- ! ential humility when be entered the lodge.

ROWING MEMS. The annual contests arranged amongst the professional oarsmen of Great Britain, the Christmas Handicap Sculling Saces, took place on the Tyne course at New- castle during Christmas week, and were of more than average interest to Australians in the fact that the two New South Wales scullers, George Towns and James Wray, who were both seeking for the World's Championship, competed, but were unsuccessful. Towns was defeated in his first heat, while Wray managed to gain a place in the final heat, only to be van- quished by J. White, who had the advantage of 17 seconds' start from Wray, which is a large handicap for Wray to give away, lt is not to be expected that the Aus- tralians would show to very great advantage at this time of the year in England, as, being in the depth of winter, they will not be quite acclimatised to the rigors of an English winter yet ; but it speaks well for Wray's capabilities in any race that he may take part in in the forthcoming season to find t...

PERTH V. FBEBIANTM¡. Fremantle was captained by Keogh, and Parker took charge of the Perthites. The match yesterday did not result in a very attractive display of cricket, with the exception of Oldham, who pnt on a score of 38, oat of which were fire 4's, Wright coining next with 24, when he gave an easy catch, which Thorgood accepted. Wright was favoured by a deal of luck, as Rollands missed à very easy chance of stumping him. Moffat, who put up seven runs, was also fortu- nate, as Delohery missed an easy chance of stamping him, letting the ball pass through his hand. Kelsall was caught off one of Mullen's left-handed balls, after he had added 2 to the Perth score. Dómela was beginning to show very fair form, when he was bowled by Kepgh, after putting on a score of 15, The fielding of the Fremantle Club waa not brilliant. Several very easy catches were missed, one of the-most. noticeable being a catch off Keogh's '^bowlingr by Herring. The following are the scores :- . ^ - PEBTH.-F...

TO-DAY'S MATCHES. THE THEED TEST MATCH. A BECOSD ATTENDANCE. GRAND BATTING BY THE AUS- TRALIANS. (OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. ) ADELAIDE, Saturday. The third test match between Eng- land and Australia., which commenced yesterday, was continued to-day before an enormous crowd, who had been at- tracted by the splendid batting display of Darling and Hill. The weather was fine', but very hot, and the slightest piece of shade was eagerly sought after and carefully retained. The crowd was most enthusiastic over Darling's great score, and the " record" of 310 for two wickets formed the theme of great congratulation. As the Englishmen paced out to the wicket, they got a hearty round of applause, which swelled into a tempest of cheers as " Joe" Darling and Gregory appeared. The play for the first hour or so was distinctly tame, as the batsmen were very anxious to carry forward the over- night record. fContrary to expectations, Darling did not add to his score, as he was splendidly caught between ...

THE GOLDEN FLEECE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
THE GOLDEN FLEECE. (BY A. GOLDFIELDS EXPERT.) It is not long ago that the Bvlletit used to crow over the falling destinies of Western Australia., and proclaim the rank dufferness of every mine it pos- sessed. But the gold output has done its work and told this able bul bumptious journal that it is not infall- ible after all. In its last issue it gives but two paragraphs to Westralian min ing, in one of which it doubts if the Perth Mint will be capable of idealing with our gold output, and in the othei has a partially pleasant word to say foi the "Plunderderry," as it terms Elliott'* great but patchy mine !

LOCAL EVIL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
LOCAL EVIL. It must be candidly confessed that the reports of legal proceedings which take place in Western Aus- tralia are calculated to stamp us, in the estimation of strangers, as a people both brutal and immoral. When on the one hand we see murderers and torturers receiving verdicts tantamount to acquittal from stupid juries, and light sen- tences from complaisant magis trates,and peruse thecomment which the Chief Justice of the colony has felt it necessary to make on the treatment of crime and criminals generally, and on the other hear of the merciless floggings administered to men who make their escape from a penal establishment which is un- fit to hold a sparrow in safe custody, we, in common with outsiders, are justified in thinking that there is a lack of humanity and a want of moral tone about the community generally. Against this, however, we can place the outbursts of popular indignation which have greeted recent miscarriages of justice, and which are gradually giving us...
