WHAT THE LINOTYPE DOES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

WHAT THE LINOTYPE DOES. tr Thus Wynne, manager cf the '"Sydney Daily Telegraph," to the "Bul- letin" (a late issue):-"I made a special trip to America to investigate type-setting machines, and I found the Lynotype infinitely superior to all others. Several years' experience with the machine on this1 paper has proved it of immense benefit-to public, paper, literary staff, and compositors. To im- port 1G Lynotypes, as used on the D.T., would cost £?50 per machine ; "over £10,000. And the cost of type-setting with them-for interest on 'their cost, for their depreciation by wear and tear, for driving-engines, and for wages-that is inclusive, is 4i<L per 1,000 ens of type, an "en" being a type-measure about the width of an average letter as compared with ls. ld. per 1,000 by hand composition. So, considering that this paper sets 5 J millions weekly, the saving weekly in type-setting is roundly ¿200; yearly, say £10,000. This saving is, under the laws of compe- tition, expended...

FASHIONS AT THE BON MARCHE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 11 September 1898

FASHIONS AT THfi BON MARCHE (By Cordelia.) I "Come out, "tis now September."* Spring is calling, and, Laving a couple of Lours to spare this morning, I went out accordingly ; but it is hardly necessary to say I did not get beyond the Bon Marche doors. Here, the way being wide, and bordered on either side with toe things that from time immemorial have proved irresistible to the truly feminine half of creation, what wonder that my steps were arrested, that, like Elaine, I lifted up my eyes "and loved them with the love which is my doom,*' or, perhaps, I should say which would be my husband's doom if I gave voice to the inward longings that torment me. With so many things of beauty in my mind's eye, it puzzles me to know upon which to begin, but I think the most systematic way is to take them in the excellent order in which they are arranged. To begin with, on entering the Bon Marche tile first thing that arrests the attention is tue lovely collection of ribbons in silk and satin, stri...

VICTIMS AT LARGE, Daniel O'Connell, the famous Irisa patriot and orator once said; Ä7!i3re :e not an Act of Parliament through which a coach and four cannot be driven." Ex- perience has taught legislators that this saying ia too true, especially when ¿he Government does not care to enforce ¡lt law. The latest example of a t oach ?nd four, and indeed six horses, being dri en through an A cf ot Parliament is tc be found in the administration of tb° Immi- grants Restriction Act. It was passed principally with the object of preveiif.ng Asiatic immigration to these shores. The measures contained in the till to safeguard this object were so stringent that the English papers said that it was "un-British and immoral." And yet, the Act has been FLAGÄAKTLT VIOLATED, and made the source of income to certain. Asiat...

CONCERNING WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898

CONCERNING WOMEN (By Cordelia.) I am quite sure tie Thespians lave no fault to find with the patronage ac- corded to their excellent performance of "Caste" at the Theatre Royal Jase Monday, and it is an equal certainty that the majority of that large audience who went to criticise, remained to le amused. Mr. Waterman, local manager for Robertson and Moffatt, as that dear'' delightfully picturesque old reprobate, Eccles, was facile princeps, and the per - formante of Miss Dunn as Polly Eccles was extremely laughable. Miss Cross ley's impersonation or Esther was quiet and ladylike. Mrs. Cottier's Marquise was not up to her average, the result, I imagine of a cold which gave her voice a falsetto ring. Messrs. Barton and Freeman acquitted themselves credit- ably in their different parts, shewing us that they consider if a thing is to be done at all it is worth doing welL On ?.the whole the manner in which the play was staged, and the acting of each player proves indisputably that the Th...

TURF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898

TURF KOTES. j (By '-The Young XTn."') Bookmaker-owners run far fewer dead '-uns than do the '"popular sportsman'"" typo of owners. Coups effected by bookie-owners since the first of the year : -"Wash" Goodfellows Hear Hear (Richmond-Encore), won the one and a quarter mile New Year's Gift at S.A.J.C.

Derby, and Alemene won the Epsom Handicap for Oxen ham. Owners and trainers on Melbourne and Sydney side have not much com- punction about sending the latest and straightest tip for any event westward, as the exigencies of the ad- verse telegraphic conditions under which welabor locally, prevent a Perth recipient cf the "office" respecting any one stable's intentions, wiring the said "office" back east, if received here only at the eleventh hour.

A PECULIAR SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898

A PECULIAR SPRING. Â spring of water has recently been discovered at Sn n nans Post (the site of the waterworks for Bloemfontein, Orange Free State, South Africa), the peculiar properties of which are likely to have a marvellous effect on tiwi colored popu- lation of -South Africa. In excavating the reservoir a spring was struck about ten feet below the sur- face, which, it- is found, has die effect of entirely changing the color of the na- tives working in the water. It was first observed that- the feet and legs of the Kaffirs working in and near the spring had turned a light yellow color, and subsequently experiments proved that- the muddy water applied to other parts of the body produced the same effect. So great has been the rush of natives seemingly anxious to change the color of their skins that it has been found ne- cessary to enclose the spring with a ten foot galvanised iron fence. J Don't, O woman, congratulate your- self on being a man's first love until you are certain t...

CARGOES OF SERVANT GIRLS HOW WESTRALIA PROVIDES FOR YOUNG MEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898

CARGOES OF SERVANT GIRLS HOW WESTRALIA PROVIDES FOR YOUNG MEN. The London Daily Mail" says : ''Western Australia ia regarded by those j who are supposed to know all about tbs j colony as the happy hunting-ground for! English giris with a decided bent for domestic service. Glowing accounts are given of the demand th are is for strong, healthy, bard-working girls, and the pro- spect of obtaining not only employment at remunerative wages, but also suitable husbands.

THE WAR FEVER IN NEW YORK [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898

THE WIE FEVER IN MW YORK (By a Canndiam «dio bas Just Returned to England.) It, was really very embarrass Lng wheal approached New York to have to explain to the pilot that we had not captured any Spanish neets as we came over. The pilot looked upon me with a contempt which was only moderated by the sudden reflection that I was an Kngiishman. "You didn't see one Spanish shipf" he asked. "And you didn't go round seek- ing for any V He was scarcely mollified by my explanation that, as I had a pass- port as a British subject, signed by my intimate friend Lord Salisbury, I did not consider it quite good form to go about capturing defenceless Spanish cruisers. Ho took this jokelet quite seriously, and expressed a hope that I would do better lacer on. Then Ï was permitted to land, and the Custom-house official, seeing that I wore an American flag in one buttonhole and an English flag in another, nearly melted into tears, until he remembered that this excess of sympathy might possibly be o...

THE GENTLE JAP. HIS SKILL AS AN ARTISTIC WORKER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898

THE GENTLE JAP. ? « HIS SKILL AS AN ARTISTIC WORKER. Japan, has been -very truly called the Britain of the East, for in spite of the fact that its civilisation dates but a few years back, yet even now it competes and competes successfully-with many old-established manufactures. Almost the whole of the matches used In India are supplied by Japan, while Manchester has to strive hard to keep its cotton trade against the gentle, but industrious little Jap. * In addition to their almost European industry, they possess that patient skill for which the Orientals are famous. As an instance: Everybody knows that expuisite Japanese enamelled metal called cloisonne, -work but few are aware of the extraordinary knowledge and skill required in it« manufacture. Every design is first painted in colors opon paper, and not a touch is put upon the metal, except from that design. The first artist cuts little strips from a roll of thin sheet brass before- lum, and, holding the plain copper article that...

THE LATEST «OLDFEECSS MOVE. Stung i» fnrj bj Ibe Premier's con- temptuous- rejection of their demands for redistribution and electoral reform ice members of the late Kalgoorlie Con- ference have been casting about for a plan -whereby they may not only get even with Sir John, but secure for their constituents some of the political boons they seek. As a consequence, the old agitation for separation is to be revived, but in a somewhat different- form. It is now proposed that a petition shall be forwarded to Her Majesty the Queen setting forth the manifold and multitu- ; dinous grievances of the goldfields, and asking the Sovereign to exert the powers conferred by the 62nd section of the Constitution Act of Western Australia by removing the eastern boundary of the colony from the 159th parallel of east longitude to the 121st-or, in other words, to annex the whole of the gold- fields lying east of the Oldfield River to the colony of South Australia.
