CONCERNING WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
CONCEITING WOMEN!; _- 1 (&>- Cordelia.) Through the kindness of Messrs. Moore and Gobbett I -was enabled, last Tuesday to obtain a view of their new millinery, which is being opened up and displayed in their splendidly lighted 'show-room, and must really pronounce the new style in hats and bonnets to be exquisite. To make a definite choice would be no easy matter, supposing for the moment any good fairy were to waft a wand and tell me the one I admired most would be given me, but even now, at the distance of half a week away, my heart is tender over a delight- ful turquoise straw, slightly poked, the space between the leaf and crown being filled in with graceful coils of tur- quoise chiffon. Turquoise poppies and foliage were arranged to give the broadening effect to the front, and a . little knot of black velvet ribbon and j chiffon was tucked under the back. An j ideal leghorn hat was in cream tuscan straw, the crown being a veritable bower of shaded roses. A third ...

THAT KANOWNA NUGGET [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
i THAT KANOWNA NUGGET After discounting tue story of the finding of the äug, the "Mining Stand- ard" (Melbourne) says:-It was said the priest had told the warden he had seen it, a statement that still lacks con- firmation. A subsequent report re- duced the three finders to two-Messrs. Broodie and Millarie, Roman Catholics, hailing from Cassilis, Gippsland (Vic), but it is strange notting has been heard from those men in the West, nor has anything been heard about them from CassiUs. If they are not myths, how comes it that the enterprising reporter has not hunted them up and made them speak? But if Father Long has really seen the nugget, his omission to say so in express terms is certainly remarkable, but in view of the fact that no one else appears to have seen it, and that its whereabouts still remains a profound mystery, is it possible that the priest has been imposed upon, and in his turn unconsciously imposed upon others? No discovery of gold has followed his disclosure ; Messrs...
IS IT TRUE [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
IS IT TRUE That there are Chinese merchants in this city whose cooks sleep and bathe themselves in'the same room as that in which they keep the fruit and vegetables which tiley sell to the publie? That it would be a benefit to the public if a certain inspector, who receives £5 per week of the ratepayers' money, would tom his attention more to the Chinese shops and less to the hotels? That it would be a good plan if the "Sun- day Times'" wouM plan a black list of all those who employ black labour? That the working people would then Lave j a chance to know who to patrnise That the city solicitor told the Perth Coun 1 eil two months hack that they could not, : under any circumstances, recover from the ratepayers for the gravel footpaths? That the Supreme Court confirmed this opinion in the case of the appeal, Brown v. ; Council? . TÍ;'-¡i ii some hon. member asked in the !

CYANIDING THE WORKING MINER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
CYANIDING THE WORK- ING MINER. - Vosper on the practice of stuffing stopes with cyanide tailings:-The at- tention of the conuuittee should also be called to a practice growing up in East Coolgardie, of using the tailings from cyanide plants for dosing up stopes in some of the large mines. A stope was that space from which the reef had been taken out, and the cavities so created had to be filled up in order to prevent the ground from caving in. The effect of filling these cavities with cyanide tail- ings was that the cyanide of potassium contained in the tai t ings when subjected to the close atmosphere of a mine, poisoned the air, for it was known to be one of the rankest poisons. Already some miners were said to have suffered seriously from sph tiing headaches in mines where this practice was going on, ¿nd those men had to seek relief by going to the drives in order to get purer atmosphere. The practice of filling such cavities with cyanide tailings was obvi- ously so dangerous tha...
SUICIDE AT KALGOORLIE A WOMAN'S VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
SUICIDE AT KALGOORLIE! j A WOMAN'S VIEW- j The above brading caught my eye one morning hist week- whilst glancing over the daily paper. It referred to the sui- cide of Marcus M'Namara, and after reading it through I found therein a sad story, far more pathetic even than the act which made it public-the story of a life's failure. There were others at the breakfast table, who were, of course, horribly shocked at the dreadful deed, but their thoughts went no fur- ther ; they looked on it as news, some- thing to talk about-that's alb one deli- cate looking lad}' complaining that the account was not full enough. She wanted more details. I suppose she wanted to know, how much blood was spilt on the floor, and if the brains were scattered about the apartment. I find these are the details wanted by the aver- age person, who is educated up to that point by a prostituted press who find that to pander to all that's horrible and morbid in human nature pays, while we and they talk of the gloriou...
THE CABLE RING. REVOLT OF COUNTRY PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
THE CABLE RING. KEVOLT OF COUNTRY PAPERS, - Anyone who likes a. good healthy newspaper that speaks the truth with- out fear or favor, should read the "Ger- aldton Express" ; its comments are caustic, its observation keen and well regulated, and with the exception of the Kalgoorlie and Kanowna papers it is thc only country paper which appears to ba really free. Just now the "Express" is jibbing at the most recently estab- lished cable arrangements : and having thrown over its allegiance to thc M~Kiii non combination, speaks out thusly: - "Both the 'Telegraph' and the 'Express' have completed negotiations for a special service of cable news, and we publish to-day our first batch of foreign intelligence obtained under these fresh arrangements. While on this subject, just a few words very much apropos. In july, 1893, Sir John Forrest withdrew a considerable amount of the Government advertising from the Perth dailies, who thereupon threatened to publish no foreign telegrams unless the ad...

THE GULLIBLE PUBLIC. GOLD FROM SEA WATER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
I THE GULLIBLE PUBLIC. GOLD FROM SEA WATER. The Electrolytic Marine Salts Com 'pany, with its recovery of gold from sea water, which was drawn out so much money from New England inves j tors, turns out to have been a very or- dinary swindle, so transparent that if the "secret process" had been submitt- ed to experts months ago-as the "Engineering and Mining Journal" (New York) suggested-the truth would at once have been apparent. The story told by parties interested, how they put their own chemicals in an accumulator and watched through a winter night, has something ludici ous about it when we learn from a con- federate of the "inventors" that one of them, a diver, .was putting previously prepared amalgam in the accumulator! just below their feet as they sat or* the wharf. The directors who reallr gave the thing its tirst start seem to have been a very credulous lot, or else quite willing to be duped. The Rev. P. F. Jernegan, and probably his confederate Fisher also, are in Europe, ...
A PUBLIC NUISANCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
A PUBLIC NUISANCE. Sir,-I wish, to draw your attention to a disgraceful state of things exissrag ia the Telephone Department's ysrd, in Wellington-street, Perth, opposite tuc city weighbridge. The yard, it seems, is rented from the Railway Depart- ment, and in this yard, under the very window of the office, is a dilapidated four-roomed brick cottage, reniyd by ljw-dass Chinese. There is con^antly a stream of Chinese, Sîalays, ani Eng- lishmen, and the worst class cf prose- cutes, passing in and out, and the din aral clamour there at certain times is [fearful to hear. It is a scacd&.e-js' j shame that the Government should en- courage such a state of things, by re ! ceiling rent from them. The officer that collects the rent shuts his eyes to I all, though complaint after complaint has been made to him, and the only reply he offers is that he must sec for Limself, ' which as long as ue comes on his usual days to collect the rents he will never see, as the wary Chinee is always...

A CLEVER ORATOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
A CLEVER ÖBÄTOB. It will be interesting to our readers to leam that Mr. Thomas Walker, the celebrated elocutionist, has taken a com- modious studio at No. 9 McDonald's buildings, corner of Barrack and Mur- ray-streets, where he purposes giving instruction in the art which has made his name so widely known. Mr. Wal- ker has served a long apprenticeship to this special study. He is the dramatist of Marcus Clark's work "For the Term of His Natural LifeV' and the author of the dramas, tragedies and comedies, "The Slaves of Sydney," "Marmondille j the Moor,"' "Married Without a Wife," "Kitty," "The Hypnotist," "How the Children Played Hamlet" "The Cost of a Kiss," and in addition to several well known dialogues and popular recita- tions. He has had as his pupils, clergy ' men, lawyers, and members of Parlia- ment, and several actors and actresses i owe their position on the stage to his tuition. It is a rare opportunity to ha-ve such a man in our midst, and as I pirante to the platform o...
TURF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
TURF XOTES. j (By "The Young Tn.") j Afc a show which was recently held h the Korti, of England there was a dasi of four-year-old hunters in which onh two put in an appearance. The winnei was a very smart young horse, showing plenty of breeding, and a fine galloper The ocher horse was a three-cornered looking animal, that lurched and lobbec about rather than galloped, and that in dealers' parlance, had not a trade "What is he by, groomf asked one of th« judges. "By -, sir,"-naming om of the most prominent hackney stallion! of the day ?-replied the groom wit! some pride. "Tell them he's by Persi mon nert time you are asked, and you may win," answered the judge ; and thc jgrooin, thinking he had a wonderful ( horse, thanked him for his advice. Ar experience like this is worth any amount of theory on the subject of the hackney cross or hunter mares, for the dam ol the horse in question was a well-bred hunter. Mr. Charles Watson, of 263 St George's Terrace, Perth, reports busi- ness bri...
FADS OF ROYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898
FADS OF ROYALTY. The Prince of Wales is a collector of pipes ; the Czar of postage stamps and the eggs of birds of prey. Emperor Wil i liam collects autographs, as do also the Kings of Sweden and Houmania. The Queen of Italy's passion is for ga- thering in shoes and gloves that have been worn by sovereigns of the past and j present. She has shoes of Mary Ste-! wart, Queen Arme. Catherine of .Russia,; Marie Antoinette, and the Empress Josephine, says "Art Amateur." That Carin Healing Ointment has made a wonderful name for itself, goes without say- ing. Thousands-testify- as to what a boon it is.*
