SATYURDAY'S LATEST ANOTHER LOCAL INDUSTRY CRUSHED! CHARLIE CUTHBERT CAPTURED. 4 TOTE ESTABLISHMENT UPSET FORTY ARRESTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

4I0THER LOCAL Dî . DUSTRY CRUSHED! CHARLIE CUTHBERT CAPTURED. 4. TOTE ESTABLtSHJIEÎiT UPSET FORTY ARRESTS. About half-past two o'clock on Saturday afternoon a staff of de- tectives, under the ? direction of In- spector M'Kenna, made a raid upon the itotalisator shop kept by Mr. Chas. Cuthbert in Hay-street east, and generally known by the name of the Marvel Saloon. For the purpose of making' a big haul, the hour chosen was '^singularly favorable. The betting on the Boulder Hurdles had just -closed, and some of Mr. Cuthbert's clients were awaiting the result of wire whilst others were making their wagers on the Trial Handicap and Boulder Cup. Altogether -about, forty persons were present when the detectives made their appearance, and put a stop to the pro- ceedings in the name of the law. From that moment none were allowed to enter the room or leave the premises. The proprietor, Mr. Cuthbert, the members of his' staff, as well as the whole of the spectators" and gamblers were marched...

ROMANCES OF OUR OWN TIMES. TRUE STORIES FROM REAL LIFE. AFRICA'S SPARKLING EYES! THE FINDING OF THE CAPE DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

ROMANCES OF OUR OWN TIMES -o TRUE STORIES FROM REAL LIFE. By A. O. Tibbits. AFRICA'S SPARKLING EYES] THE FINDING OF THE CAPE DIAMONDS. Little did John O'Reilly dream that | he waa on the brink of fortune-that j blind luck was, in a few more steps, to bring him to play his part in an event which would for ever associate bis name with wealth outshining that of Fido* rado itself. Th© African October day was clos- ing in, O'Rielly, the travelling trader, had covered a weary number of miles since dawn, in his lumbering waggon drawn by the slow-stepped oxen. The inhabitants of Hopetown district, Orange River, in 1867, were few and far between, and he felt that he would be thankful when he should come to the farm of some hospitable Boer, who would allow him to put up, and pro- vide him with food and lodging for the night. Such a farm he found at length in ''Oe Kalk," the home of Schalk Var. Nierkerk. The waggon with the wares it contained, was placed in safety, the oreen wera taken out and...

PITS OF PARLIAMENT. For the Lord's sake never marry a woman with a mission."—Lyall Hall. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

PITS OF PARLIAMENT. (By Bungarra.) j *"-For tJiC Loni's sake never marry a woman vritli a miss;"".""-Lyall HalL lüvery circus has its clown ; the Wes- tralian Assembly has its Lyall Hall. Yet the above little text dropped from his lips on Wednesday evening, ¡md appears worth recording. As the apostle of. Toryism, old-fogeyism, and [ social paralysis, Hall has thrown in his lot with Mitchell, Pennefather, Gregory, and others of the ultra-crab party, whose footprints on the sands of time progress backwards. It is a pity, for, as Vosper remarked, such men with such ideas would shortly become as extinct j as the dodo, and be put in glass-cases ; for exhibition. The proceeds from the sale of tickets of admission to view might be applied to the purchase of copies' of Oiiida's works for distribution 'among the exhibits, so that they could the better study up instances of sexual perversion for use in the House during Woniaifi Bights debates.

THE ALLUVIAL TROUBLE A GOLDFIELDS OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

THE ALLUVIAL TROUBLE A GOLDFIELDS OPINION It is not easy to find words to express one's opinion of the action of a large majority of the Legi dative Assembly on Wednesday, when on the lead of the Pre- mier they refused to hear what was to be said on behalf of the men who, as nearly everyone believes, were illegally imprisoned during the great alluvial dispute. Mr. Vosper moved for a select committee to inquire into the whole mat- ter and to see if the men were entitled to compensation for the outrage that, under the shield of what was called law, had .been perpetrated upon them. The Premier opposed the motion. This was natural enough, as an undoubted ex- posure would certainly have resulted, but he should have tried to find some- j thing better to put forward as reasons for his opposition. First, the correct course should have been to appeal to the Souse by petition. A mere techni- cality this, which might well have been passed over in view of the manifest wrong that had been inflic...

AN IMPORTANT MISSION INTERESTING SOCIOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

AJÍ IMPORTANT MSSIOtf! (INTERESTING SOCIOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION. During the past "week we have re- ceived a call from Monsieur Vigou- roux, a Parisian Professor of political economy, who, accompanied by his sec- retary, M. Leroonon, is making a tour of the world for the purpose of making an interesting and important investi- gation into the social conditions ob- taining in various countries. This gentleman, who had previously visited the United States and South Africa on a similar mission, has already tra- velled through our colonies of Victoria, Southj Australia, and New South Wales, and about a fortnight ago ar- rived in Perth. After interviewing a number of politicians and others in Perth, and gleaning all the available official information, M. Vigouroux will pay visits to the goldfields and other parts of the colony, and will take back with him the results of his labors in the form of copious notes, and a large mass of statistical and other data. Professor Vigouroux is commission...

"DEFICIT OMANIA" A NORTONIAN COMMENT ON SIR JOHN DAMFIDO DEFICIT FORREST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

** DEFICIT OMAN IA" --o A NORTONIAN (COMMENT ON STB JOHN DAMFHK) DEFICIT FOBBEST. Deficit madness, or "defiwtomania,"' as we suppose it might be called is get- ting quite a common disease lately. A correspondent, who has evidently got the financial blues badly, sends us the attached shriek, which we publish to show that we have some mute inglori- ous Nortons in our midst: Peripafcetically the other day I heard a blithering idiot refer, tp Forrest as a "financier." For the moment I stood transfixed, and then went for that idiot with both feet, and asked him if he really m ««nt. what he said, and if be wae refer- ring to Brer Alick or brother Jack. The former trades as a financier, and makes an uncomfortable and precarious living at the job, but it is evidently better than running crooked lines through the bush for brother Jack to go exploring by. I suppose there are people who re- gard the kite-flying Alick as a financier, but I cannot understand anyone being born fool enough to ever...

THE PUBLIC WORKS AGAIN. RETRENCHMENT AND RECONSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

THE PUBLIC WORKS AGAIN. RETRENCHMENT AND RECON- STRUCTION. . The reconstruction, of the Public Works Department seems as far off at the favorite to the Derby ten years' hence, and that stupendous joke of an institution continues to afford cheap (?) and wholesome amusement for the mil- lion. Although the Premier's announcing in his Budget stuttoration that some re trenchment was to take place in the Public Works Department, consequent upon completion of works, might be tak- en by the average citizen to mean that a larger staff of well-paid employes would not be kept than was necessary to cope with the declining volume of work, boiled down tiie statement goes to rags, and cheap and greasy ones at that, and this blatant fact is so broadly and so com- prehensively and so' screamingly appar- ent, that one would have thought even a Forrest would have rumbled to the fact that Piesse, in putting the words in- to his mouth, was having the cheapest loan of him at all possible. But there are s...

THEATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

THEATRICAL NOTES. (By "The Johnnie.'') At the Adelaide Bijou some three or four years ago one of the funniest pre- sentations of "Conn the Shaughraun" was given it was ever my lot to witness. Two days before the opening night the com- pany had the misfortune to lose it's Corry Kinchela for some reason or other. The manager hunted high and low to find one who had played the part before, and was induced by a theatrical agent to put ""a splendid amateur" he knew of through rehearsal. * * * * At 12 o'clock the agent brought his man along. "Yes, he had done a lot of acting ... he had played Corry six times before ... notices! he had lost them . . . tay bim begged the amateur. The man went through, re- hearsal, seemed to pick up all the busi- ness, and was word perfect. ***** The opening night came, house full, plenty of boys in the gallery, and six or seven paid barrackers. The first act went well, and had an excellent "curtain." But, as the pros, said, the other two went to blazes, wher...

POLITICAL POINTS, -.-?- I (From ''Hansard.") I Mr. Illingworth (Gold Mines BUI) : Legislation which is the product of at years' experience in the working of the great gold industry in other colonies and which fits their goldfields in theil present state, does not fit our goldfield! in the stage which they have now reach ed. And the thing that kept the gold fields in other colonies in proper working order, and prevented the friction whicï exists here, and -the conditions whicï still arise here, -was the existence oj these very mining boards. It was be- cause of their existence, and the by-laws which they made and administered, and the-faithful work which they accomplish- ed - that -the Government at head- quarters were enabled to carry on thu great mining industry under the Act in Victoria. Mr. Mitchell: Do not talk BO much about other colonies. Tajik about oui own. Mr. niingworth: Will the hon. mem- ber kindly wait his opportunity.

MECHANIC'S MURMURING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

MECHANIC'S MÜRMÜBPTG-. Sir,--As I see frequent letters in the daily press about Government employes doing private work, would you kindly grant me space in your columns to call tile attention of the authorities to the injustice that is being done to mechanics who are out of employment by some men in the telephone workshops, who are not content with being employed by the Government, but are doing private work, and, I believe, using the depart- ment's tools. In the other colonies such a thing is not tolerated, and it should not be allowed here, as, especi- ally at the present time, it- is very hard ¡to get employment. Thanking you in anticipation, -Yours, August 24, 1898. MECHANIC.

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE GREED OF GOVERNMENT SERVANTS. A ROADS BOARD SECRETARYSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE GREED OF GOVERNMENT SERVANTS. A ROADS BOARD ^SECRETARYSHIP Sir,-Beading through, the ''Municipal Notices" in the "West Australian" to- day, I saw one from the Bayswater Hoads Board, signed by Fred. Stone, sec- retary. I always understood that Gov- ernment servants were not allowed to follow any other employment. Does the Government storekeeper, in whose department Mr. Stone is employed, know this? If not, whynot! Or is this another instance of glaring mismanagement? From your correspondent's letter, pub- lished in the "Sunday Times,'' of 7th inst., one sees that the Government storekeeper, instead of facilitating the work of the Government by keeping down expenditure, and suggesting a con- siderable reduction in his own salary, recommends an increase of £10 per year for himself, while at the same time he reduces a lad's wage by 8s. per week (about £20 per year), or in other words, while increasing his own salary by £10 per year, he saves the department a si...

That if some of the supposed surveys ] of the suburban, lands were tested, many of the licensed surveyors would lose their tickets? That at Subiaco one man, by follow- j ing the pegs put there by the surveyor, has got 20 inches on to the road with his building? That if ever there was a case where the Governor-in-Council should step in, and declare a seat vacant, Leederville is tile place? That single men get the preference for work under the present administra- tion of the works committee of the City Council? That the surface drains are a com- plete success, and they are only costing the ratepayers £5 10s. per week up to the present for a plasterer and labourer to patch them?

MEDICAL MONOPOLY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 28 August 1898

MEDICAL MONOPOLY. Sir,-Kindly permit me to draw your attentiön to what seems to be both un- fair and' illegal. One man. in this town- ship holds the four different Govern- ment positions of warden, magistrate, coroner, aind medical officer, drawing full salary for each. No other doctor can have the benefit ol the hospital for his patients, this ona ruling there su- preme. This Government officer is per- mitted to have private practice, the holding of as many appointments io friendly societies, etc., as he likes, and is medical officer of health. Is it fair, I ask, that he should hold all these ap- pointments, to the exclusion of others who might be equally capable? The monopolies enjoyed by* the few seem to spoil everything in this colony, and the Government certainly does not en I courage new-comers. -I am, dear Sir, I RESIDENT.

DR. LOVEGROVE AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

DR.

Indeed nanci of the work requires men of stronf nerve and no little restraint. The ser vices of these have been gradually dis peascd with, and females have replacée them, as wardswomen-quite a new per son in hospital work.

THE WORLD OF WHEELS ; j (By The Scorcher.) A matter of moment to cyclists gener- ally in New South Wales is tbe ques I tion of the federation of the whole of [the different bodies. Generally it is considered that the scheme is impractic- able, but Mr, Heighway still hopes to secure the amalgamation of the Cyclists' Union with the league. The members of the various clubs are now ranged into two distinct parties, who are known as billi tes and anti-bilUtes, and shortly we expect to hear that the parties have | adopted the distinguishing titles of Reidites and B arto ni tes. - The movement ¡ has much to commend itself, but, judg- ing by the differences of opinion which exist there seems to be every chance cf the attempt resulting similarly to the great federal movement, as, whilst on all sides one hears the desire for unity expressed, no one seems able to put for- ward a plan for federation on an equit- able basis, either in connection with the colonies or the cycling bodies. * " * ? *...
