The Sunday Times. SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1898. ONCE AGAIN ALLUVIAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER IL, 1898. OXCE AGAIN ALLUVIAL;. "The Sunday Times" occupies th« position, to a very great extent, of be inj . the journalistic intermediary befcwen th< 1 people of the goldfields and those ot the coast. In order to fulfil the duties of-such a position, we have crowded ont ; a large quantity of interesting mattel ' in order to make room for the full ac 1 count of the most recent alluvial dis- puted which elsewhere appears. * * * * Since this matter was placed in type, . the alluvial men have been once more 1 victorious. It has been proved in court that the Ivanhoe Venture syndicate has not, and never had, any real title to their so-called lease, and that if any larceny took place, it was on the part of the company, who broke into Burke's workings and seized the ore .of which he subsequently forcibly recovered posses- sion And thus all the "tall talk" and inflamed rubbish talked in Parliament and press about these men being law- breakers and unscrupulous a...

ROMANCES OF OUR OWN TIMES. RUESTORIES FROM REAL LIFE A CONJUROR WITH MILLIONS. A PRECURSOR OF HOOLEY. GEORGE HUDSON'S RAILROAD TO RUIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

EOMANCES OF OUR OWN TIMES. RUISTORIIS FROM REAL LIFE A CONJUBOB WITH MHÜONa A PBECUBSOB OF HOOLEY. GEORGE HUDSON'S RAILROAD TO BOIN. BY A. O. TIBBITS. (Author of "The Meredyth Mystery," "Fighting a Lie," Eta, Etc.) One beary, sultry July day in 1865 a dingy four-wheeled cab might have been seen to approach York Caetleand draw up at a grim, deep-set, massive-wooden door, thickly studded with rusty metal knobs, and with, a barred opening in its higher part to admit of its custodian's scanning any would-be visitor who sought admis- sion. The cab was hardly at a standstill be- fore its door was flung open and a man sprang out. A. diiarnJj harsh jar of clanging in the interior of the gloomy building resounded to his pull at the bell-handle, footsteps approaching nearer and nearer echoed down flagged corri- dors, and a whiskered face appeared at the grating. . There was a clatter of keys, the noise' of bolts shooting back, the grim door slowly opened, and the man, hastily re- treating to ...

THE WINDOWS OF KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

I ¡THE WINDOWS OF KNOWLEDGE. Sir,-I wish, to draw your attention to a wanton and disgraceful piece of negligence on the part of the autho- rities in »ot providing some sort of .window-blinds to tte windows of the new Public Library. The place has bees, occupied for a week or two, and yet there is no sign of anything being put up to prevent tire sun's rays from burning and spoiling hundreds of valu- able books. If the Government is too hardrup to put proper window-blinds up why not obtain a bucket of white- wash and cover the windows, and thus prevent the spoliation of books that is now going on. I have written to you on the matter trusting' you will "rub it in," and thereby have the matter seen -I am, etc., j : A. ML M'DOKALD. Perth, Sept. 7, 1898.

ACCUSED DISCHARGED. i The case against the four alluvialites, Burns, Burke, Affiler, and Began, for ? alleged larceny of ore from the Venture , Company, then came on for hearing. . Messrs. Stanaforth Smith, R. D. Thomp- , son, W. J. Cotter, and R. Whelan were , on the bench.

Mr. Moorhead, with Mr. Symon, ap . peared for the accused, and Mr. E. G. S. Hare for the company.

WOMEN WITH MOUSTACHES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

- 1 WOMEN WITH MOUSTACHES ! A certain learned scientist makes tho rather startling assertion that mous- taches are becoming commoner among women. He says that in . Constanti- nople, among the unveiled women that are to be met with, one out of ten pos- sesses an unniistakable covering of down on the upper lip. In the capital of Spain, again, the proportion of ladies with.tile masculine characteristic is said to be quite equal to that observ- able on the Golden Horn. So, too, an American medical .man states that in Philadelphia fully three per cent, of the adult fair sex are similarly adorned, and probably the proportion would be still larger, but that many women in- dicate tiie unwelcome growth by apply- ing depilatory preparations. Old Paris, the dual Caulfield Cup winner, who is in England, bas irretriev- ably broken down. The ancient son of Grandmaster is to be brought back to New South Wales, and will end his days at Havilah. i ....

' EVENINGS FROM HOME i t ? s (By the Playgoer.) The concert and dance social given, by the Leederville Amateur Dramatic Com- pany last week must be regarded as an unqualified success. The musical part of the programme waa contributed by Mrs. Sayers and Messrs Cohen, Saunders, and Bent-the accompaniments being nicely rendered by Mr. Metcher. The Bev. A. Galley introduced the society, and in- timated that the club would give a series of weekly concerts in aid of the building fund of the Leederville "Cottage Home." The catering was left in the hands of Mr. Woolmer, who excellently accounted for his trust Dancing was indulged in tiU 12 o'clock, and every one left the hall highly satisfied with their evening's amusement. ***** A concert party, consisting of the Misses Crossley, Busch, and Cragg, and Messrs.

CONCERNING WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

CONCERNING WOMEN (By Cordelia.) A member of the staff of the London "Daily Telegraph" has given Australia a shocking character for its cooking. He stayed two months in the colonies, and went back prepared to swear that during the whole time, he never once tasted a properly prepared bit of meit. A loin chop quickly grilled over a red hot tire is a didi for a King, but he de- clined to recognise in the "thin, greasy, flabby, fried abomination" served up with religious regularity,- anything resembl- ing what a chop should really be. All this is painfully true I fear, particularly in this colony, where we should reason- ably expect to see the very most made of the limited supply. I was told the other day that we are to be treated to a series of practical lessons in cookery by a lady whose head is screwed on the right way. My advice to her, gratis, is that she calls these lessons by an attrac- tive title( such as "How best to catch a husband, by one who has succeeded,'' : It is safe to p...

THEATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

THEATRICAL NOTES. (By The Johnnie.) Miss Ada Baker, the favorite balla dist of the last Cremorne combination, has decided to settle in Perth, and take music pupils. I am afraid she is doom- ed to disappointment. We have so many of the genus already resident here, and although a few of them are of the first water, they are consumed with undying jealousy of one another, which jealousy seems to be particularly exercised against those who know their business thoroughly. However, I wish her every success. '"The Musse ties" have secured the ser- vices of Mr. Tom Coward, as musical director, and the company is a nice and compact one-our old friends Martyn Hagan and Lucy Fraser being a host in themselves. Their last programme to hand demonstrates that, small though the company be in numbers, it is quite possible to make a very decent «how with it. '"The Musettes''' do Northam before touring the fields. The benefit tendered to Mr. Syd. Deane at Cremorne proved a higbly successhil affair. The...

IS IT TRUE That the same engineer never by any chance puts his complaints against his officer on paper, bot takes a special trip to the head office and verbally reports the offence, and consequently the officer has no chance of re- futing charges ?

Occasionally from oat slightly higher than, its fellows the« would be seen a vast unbroken area thai vanished on all sides into a haze of heal and distance. There was no brea! upon the desolate waste, not even s stunted shrub or tussock of grass. Nt kindly shadow kissed the bakiiig ground. no cloud tempered the heat of the sun. Over the vast stretch, of countrj reigned a stupendous silence It wai the silence of eternal drought, when the sun had sucked the life from thi earth, and the earth knew of nothing but of salt and sand. Neither biri nor beast nor insect uttered a ery 01 sound to break the stillness. Then seemed no life save only the darya nj life of unendurable heat that-sbimmere like a. guttering veil above the grej sand. Yet there was life. For stumbling staggering, sknaching throu...
