A WOMAN'S OPINION ON THE FRANCHISE DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
A WOUÂJSrS OPINION OIT THE FRANCHISE DEBATE. I notice, Mr. Editor, There's been a long debate On franchise of the womanhood Which pines within the State. And I see it has been carried That woman's only right Is. to stop at home when married And wait the boss at night. Oh ! Illingworth the wonderful ! Would'st thou thy brains compare With those of female Martineau, Or Nightingale the fair? And Wallace, of historic nanse, liait ever heard Besaht ?

LATEST SPORTING. SYDNEY EAC1M. AUSTRALIAN JOCKEY CLUB. SPRING MEETING. FOURTH (RANDWICK PLATE). LEVANTER AGAIN SCORES IN THE SECOND STEEPLE- CHASE. AMBERITE DOWNS MER LOOLAS IN THE RAND- WICK PLATE. By Telegraph. (From Our Own Correspondent.) Srdnev, Saturday Afternoon. The final day of the Australian Jockey Club's Spring meeting was favored with most delightful weather. The attend- ance was eminently satisfactory, num- bering stome 15,000, including Lord and Lady Hampton and suite. The racing provided was of the nighest order. Proceedings commenced with the High Weight Handicap, and Blair evidenced his Triaî Stakes win was no use by win- ning handily from Stand Off and Bex. Johansen, Levanter and Sweet Marie also placed another winning bracket- to Eheir credit, winning the Members' Han- dicap, Second Steeplechase, and Wa- verley Handicap respectively. In the Randwick Plate 'Amberite avenged his defeat by Merlooias in the Spring Stakes on the first day of the racing, winning the Pla...
THE MINING BILL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
THE MINING BILL. The following letter has been., handed [to us for publication: "Mr. F. C. B. Vosper, MLL.A. I "Dear Sir,-I am instructed by the j Alluvial Rights and Democratic Asso- ciation to inform you that the members have carefully considered your proposed amendments to the Mining BUL and read with great interest the interview with the "Herald" representative on the subject in question. We are fully alive to the difficulties of your position, and the many disadvantages under which you labor owing to the lack of eympa^ thy and support you receive from the other goldfields members, wirose-apoe tacy and lukewarm attitude on almost every reform measure merit the severest condemnation. When the goWfiekls re- presentatives are as they are, we realise how discouraged you must often feeL and that with Parliament constituted as it is, a Mining Bili based on equity and justice, dealing impartially with all in- terests, is expecting too much. There- fore the association is of opinion tha...
PITH OF PARLIAMENT. "It's a long worm that has no turning." —Proverbs of Solomon. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
PITH OF PARLIAMENT. (By Bungarra.) "It's a long worm that has no turning." -Proverbs of Solomon. Parliament continues to drag cut its weary length, slowly and haltingly, like a dog that has sat inadvertently on a wasp's nest. Each day the Xorice paper is covered with question«, mo- tions and amendments upon all sorts of subjects, proposed by every variety oí member. Occupants of seats on both sides of the House are beginning to look pale nod worn like bars of soap after a hard day's washing. The Mini- stry, as a whole, wears well, but jarrah is cloae in .the grain, and takes a lot of trampling on without showing the marks of the-Opposition boote that har» walked all over it. An epidermis hard- ened by the sands of its native country that ha-ve blown against it, and scarred it into furrows like an abandoned dry blowing patch takes nothing short of a Gatling rmn to dint it. Uason's con- science and Sam MücheU's political blindness don't improve worth a cent., though the rail that supp...
THEATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
TÏÏEAÎRICIL NOTES. ¡ (By The Johnnie.) The Thespians" performance ol "Caste" st the Theatre Royal, in aid of the Convalescent Home, Cottesloe, was excellently attended on Monday night, and the interpretation was a good ama- teur one. I mean this wefi, but what a certain "cricket,'''who shall be unmen- tionable, meant by ctmparíng-their work with an inferior professional one, I don't know. I shall be pleased to see further work at the hands of Sus combination. ***** Mr. Arnold Denham, assisted by the Gourlays, further assisted by Messrs. Stuart Duncan, Arthur Laceby, and Miss Helen Beauchamp, and still more so by a "strong and powerful company of artists" (vide advt.) will open the Theatre ' Royal to-night (Saturday) with "My Sweetheart.'' Now, for, sweetheart, I have a certain amount of swetheart, I ha.ve a certain amount of right to criticise him before he does open: therefore, I object to the phraseo- logy ?'strong and powerful'' as an at- tempt to mislead the public into the be- ...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
CRICKET. The result pf the meeting of players and those interested in the game of cricket, which was held in the United Service Hotel on Monday evening last, plainly indicates that players, both senior and junior, are determined tháfc they will uphold their right to having a voice upon all matters appertaining toi the advancement of the game, and morel especially upon all matters which tend j in a drastic manner to alter existing ar- rangements. It may be contended that! in appointing the committee, at the close of last season, players delegated their rights to the committee, and this would be a sound argument had the meeting which decided to appoint the committee been called after due and proper notice had been given, but, judging by the tone of the speakers at Monday night's meet- ing, which, by the way, was a represen- tative gathering in the fullest sense, it could not but be apparent toan unbiassed mind that the manner in which the meeting was called at the end of last season w...
THE TICHBORNE CAES. LATEST SENSATIONAL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
THE TICHBORNE CAES. ¡ o LATEST SENSATIONAL STOBT. A recent London contemporary oí July 31 says:-The P. and O. «util steamer Britannia, which has just ar- rived from Australia, brought a pi-Sin- ger from the colonies who professes to be able to explain all the mysteries of the Tichborne case. His name is Heakm. He occupied one of the cabins « n the lower deck, at the second saloon end « the ship-cabins expressly spoken of ty the passengers; as "ihc dungeons." Ail the ventilation they received was from a windsaiL and even that was taken in in rainy or rough weather. Yet Mr. Healem and his wife were nev» seen on deck, and even did they indulge '"ti an airing at the lower end oí the windfall thev cid so one at a time. . The cthtr remained to guard certain valuables and documents, which they regarded as too precious to be entrusted to the ship 6 purser. Mr. Healem is an oldish-looking mau, and would pass well for a fanner. Iiis faee is clean shaven but for a fringe cf hair down each side...
MESSRS. STEWART DAWSON AND CO. A FEW OF THEIR SPECIALTIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
MESSRS. STEWART DAW- SON AM CO, A FEW OF THEIR SPECIALTIES. .Someone has said, "In the world of enter- prise its conquerers must- seek fresh fields and. openings. '* Bertce it is that Messrs. Stewart D&wson-artd Co. hame established a branch of their business in Perth. It might posibly be said that the optimistic speeches of the Pre- mier had jnflíwn"»^ the firm to take this long stride from the east, but whatever gave the' weight in favor of the step, local enterprise is undoubtedly the gamer. During the last 30 years they are well known by their houses in London, Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland, and their estab- lishment in Perth is really a credit to the firm, as well as to the city. They have-come with a pledge to supply the best, brightest, and newest of articles in their line-of business, not only for those who desire to be up to date in the richest adornments of le bean monde, but also for those who are content to wear ornaments of less value.

James BLomfield Bush's Terrible Deed. IB a long low-ceilinged room, dimly lighted by a couple of candles upon the table, and the flames of a cheerful fire, two persons sat at tea. The one, a short, burly-framed man, was seated in au ancient arm-chair, with wooden back, lie had a large, massive head, surmoun . ted by shock-grey hair, and the most J noticeable feature of his face was a j square, powerful jaw. He was dressed in a plain, homely grey suit of substan- tial material, and looked just what he really was- a respectable yeoman. The other person was a slimly formed woman of about 24, with, a pale, thin face and melancholy eyes. It was a face suggestive of suffering-a face which had looked upon the deep sor- rows of life in tne past, and seemed to look without hope on the future. Its paleness and melancholy were em...

ON THE BLESSINGS OF CORRUPT GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
ON THE BLESSINGS OF COR RÜPT GOVERNMENT (By Bungarra») Bj the Grace of God and the permis- sion of tiie editor I will BOW proceed to cover aa many yards of foolscap at so mach per inch as the latter of the two personages named will allow without .warning the writer to flee from the wrath to come. One side of a story is .always good until the otaer is told; I propose to tell the other side, and to show logically the blessings Shat may accrue to a State and its citizens, by a benign and efficient system of political corruption aided by ministerial mal- feasance and judicial immorality. ***** Responsible Government has been de- fined by an exalted personage, who swayed the destines of West Australia with a first-class dinner table and a choice brand of Calcutta cigars, to con- sist of a strong Ministry and a good Op- position. With this ideal in view we have advanced so far along the path of progress as to achieve in W.A. a very weak and washy Ministry, a determined and facetious Oppos...
