A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
A SPECIAL ANNOUNCE- MENT. The SUNDAY TIMES will shortly publish a series of articles on the condition of affairs in the local yachting world, which will be full of interest and instruction.

[?]achting. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
Jfacljting. Many yachting parties were made up for the Christmas and New Year holidays, and trips to Bunbury, Mandurah, Rottnest, the Islands, and up the Canning River, were indulged in by scores of enthusiastic yachtsmen. One of the best trips was that of the R.W.A.Y.C., Com- modore Mr. R. B. Burnside, who invited a large party to spend their holidays aboard his fine boat, the Genesta. She sailed from Fre- mantle at mid-day on Christmas Day, and ran down to Rockingham. Leaving there, she proceeded south, touching at Mandurah, Bunbury, and Busselton, the limit of the trip, which lasted io days, being ex- tended as far as Cape Naturaliste. Perfect weather, with cool breezes, characterised the outing, which was unanimously voted exceptionally successful and enjoyable. * # # The Earl of Dunraven, disgusted with the unfair and caddish treat- ment of the Yankees towards all the boats he has entered in past years for the America Cup, has decided, despite much influential " pressing," to r...
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, JANUARY 16, 1898. OUR MARVELLOUS MINT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN ^uuöag pintes. SUNDA Y, JANUARY 16, iSçS. OUR MARVELLOUS MINT. What a particularly contemptible muddle our authorities have made of their attempt to found a Mint, and what a lamentable waste of public money must be endured in the attempt to remedy these blun- ders. The misfortunes of the miser- able adventure began in its infancy. The foundation walls were scarcely 6ft. above the ground when it was discovered that the sapient person- ages who drew the plans had omitted the engine rooms, and all work was stopped until this peculiarly discreditable blunder was rectified. Then when the foun- dation rtone was laid it was ins- jed with a specially stupid i;..tnith. The inscription describes the edifice as " The Royal Mint of Western Australia." This is nonsense, and disloyal non sense too. The Queen, as represented by the Chancellor of the Ex chequerer, keeps the currency in her own hands, as her constitutional obligations compel her to do. She has one Mint and one on...

SATAN REPROVING SIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
SATAN REPROVING SIN. j _ i If there is anything in the world hopelessly irresponsible, unreliable, and disreputable, it is the average American newspaper. With probably less than a dozen honourable ex- ceptions, the Press of the larger cities is filled with scandals, libels, and obscenities, any one of which would cost an English journal its life. That is to say, the Postmaster General would not allow it to go through the post, and the police would prosecute. It is, however, a well-known fact that boys some- times make a pudding so dirty that they cannot eat it, and apparently the American Press finds itself in that predicament. # # * Hence these tears : " Considerable progress has been made of late years," says an important American journal, " in the protection of the community on the side of its physical dangers. Not much considera- tion is yet given to the more important mental well-being. It is easy to demon- strate that the mental health of the community is a much higher con- c...

REVENUE RETURNS. The expenditure for the month of December amounted to £297,515 14s. ld., as compared with a revenue of £242.927 17s. 5d., and an expenditure of £347,109 8s. lOd. for the corresponding- period of the year 1896. The revenue returns show that the expenditure for the three months ending December 31 was £855,784 7s. 6d., as compared with£6634973s for the correspond- ing quarter of the previous year. The balance-sheet for the half-year shows :-July 1 : Balance bronght forward, £315,362 4s. 7d. Sep- tember 30: Revenue for Septem- ber quarter, £655,383 2s. 4d. De- cember 31 : Revenue for Decem- ber quarter, £695,092 17s. 5d. Total, £1,665,838 4s. 4d.

THE FEMININE ABSTAINER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
THE FEMININE AB- STAINER In 99 cases out of 100 a woman who is a total abstainer is swayed by one of two motives. She is either taking care of her complexion, which will not stand alcohol in ad- dition to tight lacing and violet powder-or she is saving the money for the sake of some- body else - husband, son, or brother-very often somebody who would not trouble to save anything for her. In this latter case there are no bounds to her self-denial and self-sacrifice. A crust, a cup of tea, and a new bonnet are all she bothers about for herself, the rest no matter how much-may go to him.

MISSING WORD COMPETITION. RESULT OF No. 1 COMPETITION. The No. 1 Competition closed with One Hundred and Seventeen competitors, and A CHEQUE FOR £5 17s. has been duly sent to the one gentleman, Ma. F. A. PEELE, Adelaide Terrace, Perth, who correctly guessed the MISSING WORD, which was " STUBBORNLY." In order that there might be no doubt whatever as to the absolute bona fides of the Competition, the Editor purposely chose a sentence from a well-known book " CHRISTO WELL," By MB. R. D. BLACKHOBE, Author of " Lorna Doone," *' Mary Anesley," etc., etc., On page 383 of that work, lines 13 to 18, will be found the original sentence, as follows : " This sanguine view of the position restored the deep red colour to his cheeks, which lasted for an hour, or more, while he plodded on right " STUBBORNLY," over and through the shaggy fern growth, scorched at the top and sodden at the bottom. Then he came to a little dark-eyed runnel, stealing from its cradle-head, with tottering uncertainty, and...
A DARK CHRISTMAS MORN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
A DARE CHRISTMAS MORN. (Br HAYDON CABBCTH.) " He was the ca'mest man, this here Perfessor," explained Mr. Milo Bush, *' the frozenest, ca'mest man about his debts that ever struck these diggings. Presenting a bill to the Perfessor was abont like asking a wooden cigar-store Indian to translate a Chinese laun- dry check. And debts was just all he had, too, except his fiddle and a wife and six children. "The Perfessor was a lib'ral buyer-he'd buy anything he could get trusted for. * Charge it,' was always his word, and mostly the folks would do it, to. He was smooth-smooth as the back of his own fiddle. Meant to pay, of course ; strictly honest ; but just didn't never have it. Wouldn't work-do nothing but fiddle and whittle and smoke and talk. Used to be fond o' quoting from Shake- speare, too, as, ' All flesh is grass,' 4 Smile and the world smiles with you,' ' The early bird snatches the worm,' and so forth. He might be right in the middle of this kind of talk at the grocery when a m...
HAPPINESS. A BUTTERFLY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
HAPPINESS A BUTTERFLY. (BY SABAH PIATT.) Foll many a maiden, in a mist of white, With hand that trembled toward the wedding-ring. Thought on her threshold-rose to see you light, Forever-flying thing ! Full many a youth, with passionate heart astir, Dreaming the old divine sad dream once' more His father dreamed,-joins the bright chase with her, And sees yon flash before. On, on forever, over bloom and dew, With hands thorn-torn, reached to- ward the eye's desire, Their children's children's children fol- low you, Still nigh and never nigher_ Yet, on some lily in God's Garden lit, You rest, perhaps. And shall we trust you there ? Not so. From height to higher height yon flit, Still, still the soul's despair ! All the Federal delegates left on Friday morning for their last grand picnic to be held in Melbourne.
PERSONAL PROPERTY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
PERSONAL PROPERTY. When a gentleman of the tramp- ing persuasion is arrested on a charge of having no lawful visible means of, support, a general over- hauling of his person and property takes place on his arrival at the police station. The arresting con- stable turns out the contents of the prisoner's swag, and the recording angel, in the shape of the ser- geant in charge, writes them ii? his book, while the accused looks gloomily on, and the reporter, who has dropped in while making his ronnds, surveys the scene from the background. Here is the list called over at a recent capture : "Two brass button's, a lady's hand- kerchief, a cold potato, an old. shoe, a pipe, a dead fowl (quite warrum) a pocket-book with papers, two oranges, a packet of candles, half a loaf ; in a piece of paper, a bar of soap (a moighty lot of soap he uses), a silver watch, a pair of new trousers, wid a price ticket on em, a silver fork, a screw of to backy, a pair of new socks, a sleeve link, a collar stud,...
ORIGINAL POEM. STORM AND CALM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
ORIGINAL POEM. STORM AND CALM. The Wind God's bugles blew last night, Calling the Powers of Air to war ; And Ocean's legions rose in might To follow after the Storm King's car. Out of the dark sea, mystical, They drew to the waiting land in wrath ; But the iron cliffs, majestical, Broke them, and barred their onward path. Wild was the war, till the angry Sun, With flaming falchion and blazing shield, Sped up the sea when the hight was done, And drove the invaders from the field, Shattered and sullen ; and bound their Kin y Fast to his chariot-wheels, and gave Bein to his steeds and rode, triumphing, Monarch supreme over land and wave. -EDWARD NEWTON MCCOT.I.OCH.

%\lt Moria of Cricket. (Bx THE UarpntE.) ! When I says " Hout ! "-bout you goes. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. 777 B."-The record " gate" for Eng- land v. Australia watches is 48,000 odd, at Lords in August, 1896. The record for any match was nearly 64,000 in August, 1892, when Surrey beat Notts at the Oval. Both these gates are exclusive of members, pressmen, and other " deadheads." POBTONIAN."-I believe the fastes* scoring ever done in any first-class match was the 215 made by "Sammy" Woods, of Somerset, at Brighton, in 1895, in just two and a half hours. With this very brilliant exception, English players are, on the whole, much more rapid scorers than Aus- tralians. B.B.C."-Unless something is done, as you suggest, to encourage young players, it will be many years before W.Â. can put a team into the field to fight the other colonies. See my remarks under.

EYENTS. More floods in washed-out Brisbane. Adelaide has had 113 in the shade, and we are going to have it. A three months' extension of time has been granted to the tramway promoters. Archer, who murdered William Fer- ris, the famous actor, is only to be con- fined as a lunatic. Friday night's meeting of the City Council was signalised by more than the usual amount of rowdyism. The troubles on the Iridian Frontier are spreading, and the Belnchistan tribesmen are taking a hand in the game. A battalion of Grenadier Guards is going to Egypt, where Lord Salisbury means business this time. " Up, Guards, and at 'em !" Esperance has had an empty hos- pital these five weeks, but, then, Es- perance is not governed by the Perth corporation. Bush fires doing great damage in Vic- toria, where the settlers around Yaram, in Gippsland, are burned out of house and home. Sheds are being erected by the Go- vernment at Donnybrook in order to put up machinery for cutting and drill- ing rails. Bush fir...
From Day to Day [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
Jfrmrt gag to The Bulletin is responsible for a yarn to the effect that at the recent Cue Sessions one of the jurors ^appeared as a witness, and after- wards resumed his jury duties. Most probably this is untrue, but if it were a fact, it is nothing for Western Australia. At a quarter .-sessions held some time ago at Roebourne, the Bench consisted of ~the Resident Magistrate and the local doctor. A Malay was charged with indecent assault. The doctor left the Bench, gave the medical -evidence, resumed his magisterial seat, and assisted the Resident Magistrate to give the prisoner ten years ! * # * A good story is also told of thé late Tom Burgess, M.L.C. This .-ancient convict officer once infested the Geraldton district ia a magis- terial capacity. On one occasion he was telegraphed to at his place at Oakabella, to come to town to try a case. Old Tom got as far as -the Chapman River, which by a miracle was in flood. The local sergeant went out to meet him, :and the pair faced each o...

LIES AND OTHER FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
LIES AND OTHER FACTS [BY " BtJNGARHA."] While typhoid fever has been the vogue on the goldfields for several seasons, and to be properly fashionable one needed, till lately, to boast of the time he spent in the hospital, new rivals have arisen to dispute the sway of the popular microbes. Gravel in the lungs is the fashionable complaint now. Gold-bearing gravel afc that, for when a patient dies of it they dry blow the defunct, and anticipate the smelting process. The doctors report one severe case, in which a miner from Broad Arrow had the gravel so bad that every time he coughed he filled his boots full of sand, ten ounce stuff -all through. Overtures for the flotation of the patient are pending. Only last week two warders caught a party at midnight pegging out the cot on which the man lay, posting notices, etc. On showing their miners' rights, and proving their bona fides at the Warden's Court next day they were discharged. * * * A consummation dear to the hearts of non-sectarians ...
Correspondence. KLONDYKE. (To THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
?isxm$fmfom. KLONDYKE. (To THE EDITOR.) Sir,-^As an Australasian mining man of eighteen years stand- ing, a member of the A.M.A., just returned from the Ohilcoot Pass, I desire to point out to fellow workers the following facts : The reported finds iu the Yukon Basin are correct. To get there the cheapest, quickest and best route is by the Canadian-Aus- tralian line, from Sydney to Van- couver, British Columbia; thence per boat to Skagway Bay, and thence over the Chilcoot Pass. There are men in Australia who are advertising San Francisco, Seattle and Victoria, B.C.. to whom do not listen ; also turn away from any pei sou or cqmpauy who try to get you to go to Juneau or Skagway Bay. These places are in the United States, where one has to pay double for his outfit, and from 30 per cent, to 35 per cent, additional is added as duty, directly you step into Canada. The goldfields are in Canada, and a great mistake is made if you land elsewhere. You should have at least £75 to get to Dawso...
