WHITE MEN IN CHARGE OF BLACK POLICE. HOW WHITE PRISONERS ARE TREATED OUT BACK. A DEGRADING SPECTACLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

TCHÍTI MEN IN CHARGE OF BLACK POLICE. HOW WHITE PRISONERS ARE TREATED OUT RAGE. A DEGRADING SPECTACLE. The following extract from the local '"Mercury" has been, forwarded to us by a Mount Margaret correspondent: - (To the Editor of the "Mercury.") Sir,-I have been loth on many occa- sions recently to witness a most degrad- ing spectacle in the main street of our. town. It appears that a fellow white man coming in from the back country imbibed too freely of what was not good for him, and consequently was brought up at the local police court for disorder- ly conduct, for which1 he received a month's hard labor, to be performed at the local station. The hard labor, I suppose, means chopping wood, etc, for the police. It appears that the prison- er is lent out to d« the wcKxl-chopping at the local hospital, to which nobody should object, but I do strongly object to a fellow white man being escorted to and from this work in charge of a black tracker in police Tmifonn, the like of which I...

ROWING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

SOWING MEMS. ' (By An Old Un). ./ The old adage that it never rains but it pours, is amply borne out amongst the rowing clubs of Perth, at the present moment. Month after month the boat-houses were-entirely de- serted, and aquatics appeared to ¿lave taken a Kip Van Winkleiaxi sleep. . No races were on, and everything was ic a listless way. Then the Swan and West Australian Clubs awoke to the fact that something must be done to remedy thc state of affairs prevailing. Then both crabs bring on races They prove to bc tile very, tiling the members have been hitching for, and are eminently success- ful. Then both clubs bring in a per- fect hurricane of races. Saturday after Saturday, and what was all sleepy hollow previously now becomes what they should always be, boat-houses of life and activity. * .£ . * * Both clubs have held several success- ful series of races during the past few weeks-in fact, it might be said more than successful, if such a thing be pos- sible, and in the programme...

SHENTON AND CO.'S SPRING SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

SHENTON AND CO.'S SPRING SHOW. (By M.C.) Naturally, -when entering a drapery house one's steps gravitate towards the millinery and dress show-rooms, and the attention is arrested by a prismatic ef- fect which is produced by an artistic grouping of color harmonies, these being again reflected by the artificial aid of mirrors and overhead illumination The first effect to meet the eye on entering the large room devoted to the fanciful adjuncts of dress is the rainbow tints formed by the drapings of art muslins on the wall, which shows off so charmingly the handsome millinery which is the first fruits of the summer season. The handsome mirrors exhibit to the highest possible advantage the numerous stands displaying exquisitely-trimmed hats and bonnets, contrived in every quaint form that talent and art can contrive. From a brass rod above are suspended festoons of laces in many varieties, ribbons in every pattern, shade, and width, filmy chiffons, delicate tulles, and artificial blooms ...

WHILE A GREAT WAR RAGES j APPALLING ABE THE WEAPONS AVAILABLE. ' There is mich a vast difference be- : the knowledge available when last a great war desolated some, portion of < Europe, that it is well nigh, impossible i to imagine exactly ?what the struggle - even, now commenced will be like, or 1 correctly to gauge the foceos which will i make for victory.

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. i (Br Fox.) j There are some lovely liars amongst Perth pressmen, who would give even their poor old father, the devil, a long ; start, and then beat him badly. The following is the account telegraphed to the "Murchison Times" of the Ivanhoe Venture episode:-"Perth, Wednesday. Great excitement has been caused in Kalgoorlie over the action of two hzn dred men seizing the Ivanhoe Vecture mine. The alluvial diggers working oa the company's lease sank down to bot- tom level, and broke through into the ?company's workings, and forcibly ejected ¡the miners, and seized about two hun- dred bags of stuff. Most of the men en- gaged are armed, and serious trouble is expected." Great Caesar's ghost ! * * * * Barring Nihilists and such-like in- sects, - it must be truly pleasant to be Czar of Buesia.

GOOD SPIRITS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

i GOOD msm; (By Arnold Galsworthy.) The opportunity of meeting the! spirits of dead and-gooers is not given tu everybody, and therefore when a frieqfl of mine last week invited me to stepl round and commune a little with the ? shades, I reckoned I was on to a soft tiling. I have always been rather keen > on meeting a real spirit, so that I could drag him out into tile good, broad light of day by the collar of his coat, and hand him over to the police for future reference. I have only had one pre- vious experience of the kind, which was however, a little unfortunate. The spirit was a large, muscular person, and when -I attempted to grasp him he ob- served in a few extremely well-chosen words that if I didn't let go he would knock my diaphragm up into my larnyx, or words to that effect. My recent ex- perience, however, waa of a less fighting variety, and during the whole of the proceedings not a single blow was struck on either side. The "medium" was an elderly mah with a. sad smil...

THE MAGIC BIT OF SILVER. (From the Spanish.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

THE J1Ä.GIC BIT OF SILVER. I . (From the Spanish.) j "I waat to aii you a question, Gomez." "Well, my dear boy, what is it!" " VV fiere did you get your money V The question was an abrupt one-it was almost impertinent. But Gomez de Bonilla was an intimate friend of mine, a good fellow,'and-we had dined. To say truth, we had not only dined but wined, and it was oevr some excellent post-prandialis in the shape of further wine and fragrant cigars that I had ask- ed the question. But I had long wished to do so, and I will tell you why. Some two years before Gomez was as poor as a church-mouse. He was always a good fellow; but then, you know, there is a difference between good fellows rich and good fellows poor. And, to my shame be it spoken, I think I liked him bettor rich than poor. Well, as I said, he was almost destitute. He had a pro-' f ession, it is true-he was a journalist ; but in Spain the gains of the fraternity of the pen are not large. What little he did earn went to the bad...

EVENINGS FROMHOME [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 4 September 1898

EVENINGS PKOMHOME (By the Playgoer.) A highly successful smoke social was given, in St. George's Hall by tile Angli- can Cathedral chou- on Thursday last, and Eome three hundred gentlemen re- sponded to the invitations sent them. The programme was divided into three parts, and was diversified with vocal and instrumental numbers. Since the last publio performance of this choir (St. John's Eve) the improved status is very marked. Better tone, more accu- rate time and delivery, evidence the careful and systematic, training they must have undergone to produce such a noticeable result. The proceedings were quite informal, visitors forming themselves into social groups through- out the room. During the three inter- vals light refreshments were served by the committee, and the gathering, to re- peat myself to some extent, was, both sGciallyvand musically, a very pleasant one indeed. * * ». * » The inatruaoentai opening by Messrs.
