EVENINGS FROM HOME [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 October 1898

EVENINGS FROM HOME (By the Playgoer.) The Waroonga, which has just arrived from die east, brought with her the en- tire acting company for the production of Williamson and Miisgrove's series of dramas in the Theatre Royal. Some of the principals left the boat at Albany and came op by train, among them being Mr. Pete Hughes, the stage manager. A. few people have expressed disappointment that Mr. Julius Knight is not of the company, but. from what I know of Mr. Harry Plimmer, I can con- fidently predict that none will be dis- appointed with his performance. The "Sign of the Cross" has made the repu- tation of every actor who has yet sus- tained the role of Marcos, and increased that of those who had previously been well known. Mr. Harry Plimmer has every qualification essential for this character, and I doubt not but that he j will prove himself thoroughly equal to wini is required of bim. As for Miss ; Emily Hughes and the 8irooorting com paav, every confidence may be reposed] in the...

ROWING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 October 1898

HOWING MEMS. (By an "Old Un.") The committee bf the West Austra- lian: Bowing Club have decided to post- pone the holding of their regatta, which was fixed to -take place next Saturday, the 8th October, until later in the sea son. Before taking this step, the executive of. the. club held several meetings, and the subject was well thrashed out before this decision was arrived at- No doubt the crewB who have been in constant training will riiinlr that they are bein ir harshly used, for it is very annoying to those who have gone to a lot of trouble in training for the past four or fivt weeks to find that all their labors, ex- ertion, and time have been wasted ; but then, again, the club who is running the expenses connected with the regatta arr .also to be considered, and it is.hardly fair to those who have to find the prize money to find that so luke-warm was the interest taken by the members of the various clubs, that everything poin- ted to the regatta being a dismal failure. * * * ...

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 October 1898

j CYCLING NOTES, I . - - <* -? .. - (By "The Scorcher.") A short time back a cablegram ap- peared in the daily newspapers stating that A. J. Body, of Australia, now in England, had succeeded in winning the one-time famous Cuca Cup. This in- telligence was gladly received by all Australian cyclists who were pleased to see an Australian score in a big event at home; but unfortunately, owing to some bungle, Body's name was given as the winner, whereas it shouldLhave been that of Jack Green, who visited Austra- lia last season. How the mistake has occurred it is difficult to say, for the telegraphic authorities could hardly mutUiate Green's name into Body. The blunder was discovered through Dun lop's Conpany's cabling home for par- ticulars of Body's win, as to the distance of the race, etc In reply the intelli- gence was flashed back that "the Cuca Cup was won by J. Green on Dunlop's." The query now is How did Body's name come to be mixed up in this matter} The mistake did n...

THE WONDERFUL ADVENTURER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 October 1898

THE WONDERFUL ADVENTURER. The Intest information respecting M Looey de Rooshemong is of an interest ing character. A number of people, who of course, have no desire for notoriety oi anything of that sort, have been writing to the press to tell all they know, anc the result is a yarn that is even mon amazing than the story of the cannibal chief himself. A collection of these ac counts gives us the following reliable data : -M. Louis de Rougemont was bon in the years 1801 and 1862, and ii therefore 62 years of age. He first san the light in Paris and Switzerland, beim; of Dutch extraction by Italian parents He is also a native of Miller's Point Sydney, and of Plymton, near Frema» tie. In the year 1856 or 1889 he wat apprenticed to a watchmaker, from whom he learnt the bootmaking trade. In the year 1877 he departed from Fre- mantle on a pearling expedition in thc cutter Ada, and at the same time walked overland from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Coral Sea in a yacht called the Ida, ac...

WEST AUSTRALIAN JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 October 1898

WEST AUSTRALIAN" JUSTICE. Some years ago a. satirical writer commenting on a colonywhich had always been free of the transportation curse, used the ensuing paragraph to illustrate one of his chapters, "Picture to yourself nearly opposite to England, a colony, a large proportion of whose population! are convicts, or transported felons ; where bands of armed robbers or bush- rangers are daily committing depreda- tions; where 116 sentences of capital conviction have been passed within a twelve month ; where swindling and i drunkenness prevail : where the churches are half empty ;. where a burge propor- tion of the Bettlers have recently gone through the insolvent court, and paid their creditors with 6d. in the pound." But though inapplicable in many re- spects to that particular colony, there may be more in it than meets the eye, and probably the. writer was summing up former conditions m W.A. If this be not the case, the Minister of Injustice would be doing his country a service by au...

NORSEMAN POLICE JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 October 1898

NORSEMAN POLICE JUSTICE. Sir, - Owing to the lamentable fact that tho local paper is con- trolled by the few who si ways talk and never think of this town, I am compelled to request the indul- gence of your ever impartial columns. To-day, September 21, in answer to a police court plaint, I appeared before the warden of this field, to answer a charge of disorderly «lndm-t, arising out of ob- scene and abusive language." In die first place, the plaint was irregular, as most pokce-nrannfactured indictments are, but as I was confident in a knowledge of my innocence of the charge, and having no authorities to quote, I let it pass. On evidence of a most contradictory nature I was mulcted in a fine of 5s., and costs. Now, sir, the alleged offence was the out- come of a man (also charged and finpd j£l, and costs), accosting me, and in a drunken state, heaving epithets at my head for having prospected certain coun- try in the vicinity of the Norseman. I, it was stated, repeated these epithet...

OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE ASIATIC INVASION. AMONGST THE FARMERS NOW. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 October 1898

I OUR GRIEVANCE COLUMN. THE ASIATIC INVASION. AMONGST THE FARMERS NOW. Sir,-The people of Perth appear to form no idea of what is at this moment actually taking place in the country around This country is being silently, yet steadily, invaded by the mongrel outcasts of Asa. Already the goldfields are overrun by Afghans, Cingalese, Hindoos, and the intünirgrinof little Jap, and the China- men are not far behind. Bad times apparently have no effect on these peoníe. and, as a people, they have come to stay. I waa greatly surprised when on a business trip in the farming districts lately, to find numbers of Afghans grub- bing, clearing, and fencing. These men are now regularly employed by some of the largest farmers around York, Green- hills and'Northam. They do the work so much cheaper than white men ! Every- where in these districts one meets the Hindoo hawker. He is encouraged by the farmers' wives, because he sells things so much cheaper than the stores. While at Mackermg, a huge agr...

Looking through Hymen's spectacles often makes our affinities appear some-j what changed. DODE imagine that your sweetheart! yearns for you bécasse her eyes show a longing look. She may be wishing for a '98 model bike. If stealing a kiss were petty larceny half the worid would be self-confessed ffiloam. Women gossips ruin as many fair cha- racters as do unecropuloaa mea.
