WHAT A MODERN NAVAL BATTLE MEANS. ITS COST IN LIFE AND POUNDS STERLING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

WHAT A MODERN KA VAL BATTLE MEANS. i ?-. J ITS COST IX LIFE AND POUNDS j STERLING. "A modem'man-o-war ie not only a floating volcano, it is a floating coffin/' The«; are the words of one of the greatest naval experts of out time. He might have added that the building of the mort powerful battleship in the world in the nature of a lottery. Ko one knows exactly how she will behave under heavy fire, whether she is capa- ble of Eving through a sharp engage- ment, or whether, when riddled by the fearful guns of to-day, she will sink in- gloriously to the bottom oí the sea like booie huge unshaped piece of iron cast upon tiie surface of the water. The cost of a first-class man-o'-war ranges from, half a million to a million pounds. In this country, where fifteen hundred men are frequently employed in the construction of a single ship, we can tarn one out in three years, and even less-a solid mass of metal with a dis- placement of 14,000 tens. Few people hare any idea of the im- mensity of...

SO UNGRATEFUL! [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

SO UNGRATEFUL! Monsieur Legouve, the French .writer, tells a charming story of his distinguidi ed countryman, Scribe. On one occasion the great dramatist was visiting at the country house of ak friend, and the evenings were «pent over English novels, which were read aloud by thc English governess resid- ing with, the family. One evening the young lady paused for a. moment, when she had finished « chapter. '"Ah," she said with a sigh", "if I . could only realise my dream!" "And what is your dream?" asked Scribe. The little governess brashed. To have, some day-after a long, long time-an income of twelve hun- dred francs, so that. I Twight-. ba.vo inde- pendence and rest!" Several days afterward, as the last chapter of a radier miagnficarit novel was finished, the dramatist turned to the reader and said "Do you know, I think that in thia there is a pretty subject for a one-act comedy. You have suggesetd tbs idea to me ; are you willing to write 4h» play, with mel3' Tiie proposition was...

MIS-COUPLED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

MIS-COGELED. By J T. iiOFe is always at war. The urchin is supposed to bring peace and happi- ness with him, but instead he carries fire and havoc into Ute fives of many, «nd rains more m fn»fa than enough. In fact, but for the eternal boy the world would be a steady-going place to live in, quite fit for our maiden aunts to become acquainted with, and for our nephews to wander through. Archie Fraser loved and married the girl. He and his wife were quite as happy as the average married couples, and. for some few years they managed to jog along pretty comfortably to- gether. ' Love's wound had long since healed, and the archer had no time to bother about victims when there were others to look after ; at least so thought Archie, who fancied that he had now settled down as a model husband, kind and affectionate, if hardly loving. He was a great deal better than many men he knew, and his wife thought so too, and hadn't a good opinion of other married men. But one day Archie was introduce...

MINE SALTING. THE LATEST WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

MINE SALTING. THE LATEST WRINKLES. . The noble (i) art of mine salting is tbe theme of an entertaining article in a recent number of the "CosmojjoUtan," an American magazine. The writer, Mr. C. M. Dobson, is a mining engineer,, whose calling has led him to inspect mines of various descriptions and in many localities. From his accumulated " wisdom and expérience he is able to let. the public into many secrets, which, if they ever dream, of embarking on min* iing speculation, it certainly behove* them to know. Here is a sample: ' "The preliminaries (of mines inspection) ' are comparatively easy. It only needs: eyes and an investigating disposition to I discover whether wood, water, and txans*: portation are cheap and plentiful. It would be hard to salt these. But now; comes the tug-of-war. Where Greek, meets Greek, and if the seller be a Greek in the French term of the word, the agent ' or the buyer must be able to beat him at his own tricks. The seller wants the . mine to appear as r...

The Sunday Times. SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1898. PARLIAMENTARY PALAVER AND PUBLIC PARALYSIS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1898. PARLIAMENTARY PALAVER AND PUBLIC PARALYSIS. Ti we may judge from the utterances of Ministers, the present Parliamentary session is likely to come to an abrupt conclusion at a pretty early date. If this be correct, the present time is an ap- propriate one for reviewing the alleged "work" of the session. We- are informed upon respectable authority thai the ac- cumulated gas of "Hansard" already weighs some 12 tons, so that there has evidently been no lack of talk. But the question is, what work has been done! ***** The Ministry opened the session with a great flourish of trumpets and a big programme of work. According to that verbose and diffuse document, the Go- vernor's Speech: "A large number of useful measures have been prepared, and will be submitted for your consideration. Among them are Bills dealing wi& Goldfields, Crown Lands, Public Works, the Tariff, the Railways, Public Health, Education, Electoral, Roads Boards, Fire Brigades, Mines Reg...

ACTA DIURNA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

ACTA DIURNA ! j Blood is thicker than water-so is ink. And some of the latter which the yellow press is slinging is likely to stick. The Official Receptacle is getting a rough time at- the hands of that com- mittee. The examiner examined. The j biter bit! It is said that at the last bull-fight in Santiago, before the city surrendered, the bull was done up in a suit of me- diaeval armor to keep the populace from eating him before the fight came off. BETWEEN THE ACTS. You may clove, you may cachou, The breath as you will, The scent of the whisky Will cling to it still It. is solemnly stated in a Scottish paper that the Chinese have taken to cycling racing in New Zealand, and give the judges no end of trouble, each Chinaman being so like his neighbor j that it is almost impossible to* teü which wins.

THEATRICAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

THEATRICAL NOTES (By "Tne Johnnie.5') Mr. Arthur Roberts used to tell i following amusing story:-"It was a matinee performance at the Oxfo and I had left the stage after singi my songs, divested myself of my sts clothes, donned my ordinary attirej a hurried round to the front of the h in search of a friend. But the applai was kept up by the audience, ai though the curtain was lowered, tb were bent on hearing another song frc me. However, I could not go on t stage and sing again, so I wandet into the stalls and seated myself 1 hind a portly gentleman. He was ta ing rather volubly to a neighbor, anc heard him say, 'It's no use. Arth won't come on again if he makes up ] mind not to.' 'Why ? Is he obstinat 'Ko-it's bis determined nature. Ji the same at home. He is my eldest c of seven.' This was; rather a kno< down blow for me, for I was certaii at a loss to recognise, in the portly i dividual in front of me, any reseniblan to my dear old dad, who had been de many years." And...

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. "An official denial is an absolute confirmation of fact."—Vosperian Axiom. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. {By Bungarra^) "An official denial is an absolute confirma- tion of fact."-Vospenan Axiom. IThe new Mines Bill exploded with a loud pop on Tuesday. Poor little kid, it always suffered from windy colic, and its weaiurse, the Minister of Mines, al- ways ran the offspring on a short and watery milk supply. Anaemia set in, complicated by disintegration of the joints of the spinal column. With a healthier nurse it might have pulled through and grown up to a sphere of usefulness and active life. Now, how- ever, its elder brother, the Act of '95, who was smacked and put to bed, is to be dressed up to please the House, and reinstated into popular favor by bis adop- ted father. May he prove equal to the demands likeiy to'be made upon him. The goldfields members now have the responsibility of the Bill upon their own shoulders, and should make a true bill of it. Lenroy is & figurehead merely, but is serving a good apprenticeship to mining legislation in the committe...

RETRENCHMENT IN THE POSTAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

RETRENCHMENT IN THE POSTAL SERVICE. Sir,-Would you kindly allow me a little space in your valuable journal to bring before the public a few facts in connection with that department over which Mr. R. A. Sholl, Postmaster General, holds sway. My chief reason in writing is to point out the great in justice that has been done in the late retrenchments, not only in my own case, but in lots of others which I could men- tion. I can say, without fear of being con- tradicted, that the recent dismissal (or retrenchments, whichever they call them), were made blindfolded, or totally regardless of length of service or abili- ties of the officers affected. To show you an instance, I shall recount my own experiences under Mr. Sholl. I was engaged by the Postmaster General while in the Victorian telegraph service, to fill a position as operator in this colony, and duly arrived and took up my duties in Perth. After about a fortnight there, I received orders to pro- ceed to Coolgardie-this was in the...

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE FREMANTLE DREDGES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE FREMANTLE DREDGES. í .. - 1 Sir,-Knowing that your columns are always open to ventilate the grievances of the working men of this Forrest ridden colony, I beg to bring under notice the scandalous way the em- ployes on the Fremantle dredges are treated by those in authority. It has happened very frequently of hate, that when the night shift men report them- selves for duty, should the night be any ways windy or rough that the deck bands are roughly ordered home, and told no work to-night, whilst the ser- vices of two highly-paid bosses are re- tained. This is manifestly unfair, as the wages, even when working full time, are low enough in all conscience with- out losing time unnecessarily, as in nearly every instance the dredge could have worked. If che Government want to retrench, why do they not treat all alike? But, of course, it must be the poor man who is docked. I can assure you that is the offioc-rs' pay was stopped there would not be so many stoppages...

CORRESPONDENCE. RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IN STATE SCHOOLS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. ' RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IK STATE SCHOOLS. To the Editor. Sir,-It seems pretty evident since the Legislative Council-that Chamber which represents only a certain and- bat comparatively small section of the com- munity-has accommodated and oblig- ed the Government by passing the pro- vision in the new Education Act which, relates to teachers giving religious in- s-traction in State schools, after the same - had been rejected by the .Lower or popu- lar House, that the Ministry are yet hopeful of breaking down all opposition in the Assembly and having their own way in the matter. During the course of the present week the 'members of the Lower House will once more be called upon to say whether they will permit a pseudo secular and pretended un sectar- ian system of education ~to be foisted upon the people. Apart from all ocher considerations, anyone with a grain of sense must admit the injustice, immor- ality and deceit that must necessarily' arise out of compelling teach...

AN EPISODE OF DAWSON CITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 25 September 1898

AN EPISODE OF DAWSON CITY. (By "Bumana.") The firot attempt to convert the sav- age natives of Al«dra. from the degene- rate practices of eating Esquimaux dog. and running the hob/ bouda -of matri- mony on an exchange and barter prin- ciple, vere not altogether a success. The American Baptist Missionary Union sent . out a zealous brother in an odour of sanctity, and a salary of 25 dollars a month, to lift their erring feet out of the broad and pleasant way of Hudson Bay rum and martial profligacy, and place their Np. 9 snow shoes in the safe and narrow path that led to the poor-box, and the blanket and top-boot donations sent out for the converts by the supporters of the Mis-i aionary Society, who sinned peaceably at home, and salved their consciences by investing the odd coppers left over at the week's-end in the Proselyte Sat- iation Stakes. * * * * The Rev. Silas Biffkins arrived at Dawson City in the fall of last year in a general atmosphere of sniff and holiness, and rented a l...

THEBLACKASDTANf CUBSE. FURTHER DISCLOSURES. STATEMENT BY A CHINESE IN- TERPRETER. 1 Following upon the statements con- ; tained in our last issue, we have caused < further investigations to be made, the ¡ result of which confirms and justifies i the position assumed by the "Sunday. ; Times'' in reference to the evasions of the immigration law and the existence of leprosy in the colony. A representa- tive of the "Sunday Times" has inter- viewed MK. EDWARD TEAGUES, a Chinese interpreter, who is described by our reporter as a young Victorian native, who has acquired a perfect mas- tery over the Chinese language. He speaks just as they do, and his know- ledge is a matter of envy and hatred to the bulk of Celestials in Perth. They would rather have a Chinese interpreter, because, by reason of religion, caste and clan, he is completely under their influence. No one, except those who know these people, can understand the position an interpreter of Mr. Teaguer's stamp is placed i...
