FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

LAY TO DAT. 1 (Br Vox.) Thanks to the injudicious persistence of its foes, the "Sunday Times" is being rapidly forced, into a position of great prominence. ''Hansard'' simply teems with free advertisements of it; and the daily papers-are continually giving ear and 6pace to some idiot who wants to Tent his spleen upon rt, and thereby advertise it to the uttermost ends of the earth, and boom its circulation accord- ingly. Needless to say, I have no objec- tion to my opponents taking this course. On the'other lumd, I am charmed and delighted, for nothing can more quickly fill my pockets than the continuous run of free-advertisement -to which this paper is subjected. May the Lord make me truly thankful for my enemies ! ' They have<ever-been-a great help to my career, and are. a constant solace to my mind As long as certain people continue to gird at the-^Sunday Times," I know that it is doing good work, and deserving weU of the-colony. When, people writhe and backhand snort u...

THE ETHICS OF ALCOHOL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

THE ETHICS OF ALCOHOL. o (By Bungarra.) , l o write properly on tire cums ques tîon a man must be perfectly sober. For a pressman this maj seem hard, bot it is, nevertheless, a condition which may be achieved by long practice or chronic impecuniosity. There are two sides to the drink question-the inside and the outside. The temperance crank sees if ail from the outside; the bona fide drunk, within the meaning of the Act, gets it all inside, at 3d. the long steever, and forms his conclusions accordingly. The habit of drunkenness seems, on re- search, to be one of the most ancient in- stitutions of which there is any record since Adam got a bad head from Buck- ing grapes in the Garden of Eden, and allowed them to ferment in his stomach by lying on his back in the sun "mit no dings on" This is the first distillery of which there is any record. Imagination alone will picture to the retentive mind how the father of the race, after a hard day's work naming the animalR, crawled ' home at n...

RE RETRENCHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

BE BETRENCHMENT. Sir,-Ia a previous issue of your widely-read paper I noticed a letter by a late supervisor, who stated that he was leaving the colony. In his letter he threw out a suggestion that now was the tune to secure good men. It would be interesting to the public to know if any effort has been made in that direc- tion. Judging by what rumor says about the maintenance branch, of the Public Works Department there is not & capable man. in it, and those who hare been retained are even less capable. Not one of the three of them have any knowledge of building construction. One knows more about cricket than any- thing else; one presumes to know something about building-this must have been learnt whilst in the drapery business-the other one owes his position to the influencé he has be- hind bim, as when men were compelled to work under him they say he could not tell whether a man was-doing his work right or wrong, and men distinctly re- fused to work under him, as all his kn...

HOW PROTECTION PROTECTS.

In all the other colonies, and in all parts of the world, the raw material, trimmings and material for thenzanufao ture of hate, are admitted free. As this is the only industry of the Mud ever started in Western Australia, and be- ing in a position to employ several hands, providing I do not have-to pay ...

A PUBLIC EYESORE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

A PUBLIC EYESORE. Sir,-I would draw your attention to a urinal which has been erected at the corner of the Government Gardens, op- posite the General Post-office. It is my misfortune to have to do my daily toil in an office overlooking this erection. Consequently, I am frequently the un- happy beholder of what is, to my mind, a gross offence against decency. Men rush in and out of the place all day long. Some of them are extremely careless as to the state of their nether garments before leaving, and walk lei- surely out, calmly adjusting their dress in the street. As it generally, happens that ladies are passing at the time, this sort of thing could hardly be considered edifying. The structure in question is a lasting monument of the utter lack of common sense and disregard for the fit- ness of things on the part of the City Council. ' I launched forth into type once before IA this subject. My lftter had some effect, for soon after its pub- lication the legend '.Gentlemen only" was ...

MORE GOVERNMENT STOREKEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

MORE GOVERNMENT STORE- KEEPER. ' Sir,-Toar correspondent "Florist" in last week's issue seems to express surprise that the Government store- keeper should allow one of his subordin- ates to act in the dual capacity of civil servant and secretary of a roads board; but the old proverb is very apropos people who live in glass house* should ! not throw stones"-and doubtless your correspondent is not aware of the fact that the storekeeper himself is,able to more than double bis munificent salary by way of house and shop rents. With regard to the case of sweating referred to, this is a contemptible meth- od of extorting labor from men already underpaid to do the work of an offi- cial outside the department in Govern- ment hours, and one which Bhould be put down at all cost. Why should pub lie servants be expected to do work of this description, simply because they I I are employed toy the Government store ! keeper ai wages in keeping with sweat ' ing? lt is to be hoped that -more of your ...

THE FREMANTLE LUNATIC ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

THE FREMANTLE LUNATIC ASYLUM. Sir,-Within the last six weeks or so sworn investigations have been held in- to alleged cruelty, etc., in two Western Australian public institutions, viz., the Old Men's Depot and the Lunatic Asy- lum. The results ôf the inquiry made by Mr. Roe were duly published, and everything appeared above board fair and square. Might I ask why the re- sult of the sworn inquiry held by Dr. Lovegrove has not yet been made pub- lic, seeing that the result of the inqniry has in part taken practical form by the dismissal of three nurses, or at least three have left the institution? What I particularly want to know is, how it comes to pass that the principal offen- der, an official' against whom it was proved beyond a doubt, by two witnesses, that she was guilty not only of gross cruelty by sticking '"hat pins" into the idiots and other cruelties, but connived with her favorites in inflicting punish- ment, has got off scot-free, and is ill treating the nurses, who have ...

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE AGRICULTURAL BANK. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

OUR GRIEVANCE j COLUMN. a ' . THE AGRICULTURAL BANE Sir,-Kindly allow me space in your columns .to make a few remarks con- cerning the Agricultural Bardi. " Seeing such glowing reports about the Agricul- tural Bank, I was induced to take up land last year. I did a certain amount of work on that land, , and then applied to the Agricultural Barde for assistance. The manager came out and inspected the land, whereupon he informed me that he could nob grant me any loan on my property, telling nie that it was too wet, which I contend is a very i lame excuse. There are certain settlers in this district who do not want to see peo- ple select the land around them, be- cause they want the whole of the coun- try for a run for their stock. Why not give them the whole of W.A, and the Agri- cultural Bank chucked in, because they seem to run the bank for a chosen few. I could mention the names of a dozen men who were refused assistance from the bank only a few months ago, men who came over here fo...
