THE RULING PASSION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
THE BÜLING PASSION. A candle flickered at bis bead, His parents stood in grief profound ; About the "scorcher s" dying bed Hushed weeping was the only sound. The battered "bike" outside the door Told plainly how the deed was done ; The speedway ne'er would see him more, For death would come by set of sun. But see across that face so dear A ray of reason seems to glide He start«, then whispers strangely clear, "I wonder what wheels angels lide Thus Geraldton-Murchison "Tele- graph":-Concerning Mr. Cornthwaite Hector Rason, little need be said. It is pretty generally known that he will 'not represent South Murchison much longer. By voting on Tuesday in di- rect opposition to the wishes of the vast majority of his constituents, Cornwaite Hector Rason was only dealing a last vicious kick at the electorate which, dur- ing the last few months, has cursed him so consistently.

The Sunday Times. SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1898. ASIATIC REVELATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
typSMa% Caras* SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1838. ASIATIC EEVELA3TO5ÏS. A little while since certain statements were made to the editor of "Ute Sunday Times" regarding sundry alleged eva- sions of the immigration law. AB a consequence of this, a question waa asked in the House, to which Sir John Forrest gave a reply which, at the time, appeared reassuring. We were not long suffered to remain under this pleasing delusion, however, for shortly after we received the subjoined letter, the writer of which desires that for the time being his identity shall not be re- vealed. This gentleman, who occupies a respectable position in Perth, wrote ac follows : "The Premier's answer was evasive. I have seen the passports of five Chinese who arrived by the Sultan on her last trip, and I pointed out to the Colonial Secretar}- that two were pro- hibited persons, and one came in under the passport of a man who had not left Perth. I offered to have the Chinese arrested ajnd prosecute the ship, on condition ...
ACTA DIURNA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
ACTAJflUBIl. An American volunteer at Santiago wrote a letter to his sister on a ration biscuit, as he had no letter-paper. It was unbroken when received, "not m single chip appearing on its edgea." The rest of the mail was probably consider* ably damaged, however, and it was un- wise of the American volunteer to pact with the biscuit. He might have wanted to kill a Spaniard at 109 yards next day. A furious dust-storm raged recently over the camp at Peshawar, and the troops were engaged for several hours catching flying property and potting op collapsed tents. In the morning a queer sight was seen. The dust had turned all the perspiring Englishman Mack, and powdered all the natives white! An Unreported Convnnsstkm. -. "What I should like to dov" said Ad- miral Sampson to the German admiral, over a friendly glass of beer, "is to sink this island and wash off the whole crowd of - Spaniards and - insurgents."

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
FROM DAY TO DAY. Some news of . "that nugget" have trimed up at last, and, as I expected, in Perth. A well-known dealer in gold and jewels tells me that he was recently offered pieces ot a large nugget to pur- chase. These weighed, about 18ozs., and had evidently been chipped ofï a large mass of virgin gold with a cold Chisel .or some such implement. At the fragments did not fit each other the conclusion', is unavoid- able that they were ToSiginally por- ' tions of a larger piècé. I am told, . also, that several pímilar pieces have been disposed of in Kalgoorlie, so that t we may now consider that we have seen the last of the Kanowna nugget-that is as one piece. Whether this surrepti- tious sale of the fragments that remain will lead to trouble, time alone can telL I have been asked to'warn the work- ing classes against one of the latest manoeuvres of the local land shark, lt appears that a piece of land comprising some fifty: sections in the suburbs of Perth has been cut up and is ...
SATURDAY'S LATEST OBITUARY. DEATH OF A W.A. RAILWAY OFFICIAL. (By Telegraph.) Sydney, Saturday Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
SATURDAY'S LATEST OBITUARY DEATH OF A W.A. RAILWAY OFFICIAL. (BY Telegraph.) Sydney, Saturday Afternoon. &nbsp; Mr. Reginald Davies, lately chief &nbsp; clerk in charge at Perth passenger sta- &nbsp; tion, died at his parents' residence, Strathfield, Sydney, this morning. Mr. Davies had only just arrived in Sydney by the Oroya, after a severe illness in Perth. The deceased is a son of Mr. &nbsp; George Davies, station-master at Strath- field, one of the oldest officers in the New South Wales railway service, and a nephew of the late Hon. John Davies, M.L.C. Numerous messages of sym- pathy have been received from his brother-officers and friends in Perth.
ROWING [?]EWS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 18 September 1898
ROWING MEMS. (By an "Old Un.") Contrary to the expectations formed, when the West Australian Rowing Club decided to hold their annual regatta, larger entries were looked for from both the Swan River Club and the Fremantleites. The entries so far look to be of rather a meagre description, es- pecially from the seaside club. Out of nine races on the programme open to outside clubs, the Fremantle contribu- tion so far has promised two entries, and from the Swan River Club a full entry is not to be expected. The West Australian Club will have an entry for nearly every race, and in some races several entries for the one class, but taking everything into consideration, it cannot be said that the outlook for large entries ts very encouraging, There are only two regattas held yearly in this colony, and one would naturally think that, large entries would be made, but it appears that this is not to be the case ; more is the pity. Perhaps, the surfeit members have had lately in club races, may...
WHERE IS THE MONEY? [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
WHERE IS THE MONEY? "Libra" writes:- ^ - In the Police Act, 55 Vic., So. 2ï,.and in the Justice of the Peace *«-^, 14 Via, No. 5, and ofSer statutes now in force within the colony oí Western Aus- tralia, it is enacted that all fines when-oeE uncertain amount shall be disposed of as follows:-One moiety to the usâ of the Crown, and one moiety to the use of the "informer or party prosecuting:" Daring the last eight mouths tnere has not been, paid to the "informer br party prosecuting," with, the exception of one or two instances, any part of the fine inflicted and enforced. Judging from my own experience of the work of the Police Court in Perth, Coolgardie, etc, there should be now lying in the Treasury at Perth a very large sam of money in respect of these fines, and I would suggest that all persons who have instituted proceedings in airy coori of summary jurisdiction, wherein any fine was ináicÉed and? paid, should at once apply to the proper officer for the pay- ment out to hun of t...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
FROM DAY TO DAY. (By VOX.) One of the saddest of recent stories ia the account of the suicide of the two M*Namaras. The death of the husband ; was bad enough, but it would be diffi- cult to find a more pathetic tale than that told of the friendless woman wan- dering about the banks of the Swan, 'starring and despairing, and only await- ing the falling of darkness to seek the friendly shelter of death. As far as can be learned, the unhappy couple were just the kind of people whose presence ' in this colony should be most encour- aged. Honest, sober, industrious, and independent, these two poor folks would have done the State a service by living on and obeying the Genesaic injunction. But a cruel social system, which has no : charity, except the ostentatious kinii used for the cloaking of multitudes of . sins, let them go uncomforted to a sui . cide's .doom, and. the world is the poorer ? for their loss. To what extent, I won ' der, are these enticing pamphlets issued ' by the Governm...
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
THE WEATHER. From Messrs. Clarke and Knapp, sight and spectacle experts, Royal Ar- cade, Perth, we have received the fol- lowing: "Chief Weather Bureau of Australasia, "Brisbane, Sept. 23, 1898. "Forecast for the week from date: Some thunderstorms, strong winds, and rain in the northern half of colony. Clouds and rainy weather, under strong winds, south from parallel of Perth, but improving conditions within two days. There is every indication of tile existence of a new Antarctic disturbance, which we name "Alaya," obtaining between Kergulen Islands and the Leeuwin, and likely to affect the S.W. of continent within ten days.

ROWING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
SOWING MEMS. ? -o (By an "Old Un.") Within two weeks of the West Aus tra! inn regatta, more interest is beinj: taken by the competitors in regnlarlj attending to their rowing and training and this has had a good effect upon thi display of rowing all round. The Wesi Australian senior four, who have set : very bad example to their, younger com- petitors in showing how they should not attend, are awakening to the fact, thal if they are to give anything of a dis- play at all, they must be more regular in their attendance, and are now to be seen out. every night. So far, they are very rough, and give an onlooker any- thing but the idea of being a senior crew. One great fault the crew had at first of rowing too short, is being amend- ed, and the longer stroke suits the crew better. Stroke should row with more dash at the catch, and not do all the work at the finish. No. 3 rowing a very good blade, body work good, ex- cept an inclination to bunch his should- ers up at the finish. No. 2 row...
EVENINGS FROM HOME [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
EVENINGS FROM HOME (By the Playgoer.) "The Sign of the Cross" with which beautiful play Messrs. Williamson and Musgrove open their Perth reason on Monday, October 3rd, has a world-wide reputation, and the stir it made iii Eng- land and America, was repeated on its introduction to Australia. One of the most notable features about it which distinguishes it from most modern dramas, or it will be more correct to say dramas written by modem play- wrights, is that ir is the play which makes the peopje and not the people which make the \&lt;\ay. * * * * * * Hence the fact that the leading characters are to be interpreted by Mr, Harry Plinimer and Miss Emily Hughes, and not Julius Knight and Miss Ada Ferrars, will not diminish the telling effects of the drama one iota ; rather the effect of the drama may be increas- ed, for Julius Knight and Ada Ferrars were to all intents and purposes, made by the "Sign of the Cross, whereas Mr. Harry Piiuuner and Miss Hughes had a reputation as dr...

THE POLITICAL ORNITHORHYNCUS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
THE POLITICAL OMI- \ THORHYJSCLS. ! ! Commenting on "Ampbictyon's" letter to Mr. Morgans, M.L.A., the "Coolgardie Pioneer" says: -"Mr. Morgans, M.P., remarked last week! that he had been referred to by a Perth ' papers as an ornythoryncns. Which is a queer sort of cuss to liken an M.P. j to. The platypus was for a long lime I regarded as a mysterious freak j neither fowl nor fish nor paddymelon. j But the M.P. for Coolgardie is becom- ing rapidly politicianised. He says he does not care what the Press says of him, and when a man attains to this stage in his political apprenticeship he may be regarded as very nearly out ¡ of his time. The next stage is reach- ed when a member feels that he is rather too lightly let off by the Press, I which only refers to him when it can find something good of him to say. i And fae becomes a master political me I chanic -when he wants to be mentioned ' every morning, no matter whether he ! be blamed or praised.
