PITH OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

PITH OF PABLIAIEIT. A man's Jin awful coward when his panis begin to go.-Lawson. The test with which I head my dis- course thia week is taken, dear brethren, ? fran the Book of Gastronomy, and con- veys a practical application to the policy of the Forrest Push, wnich ia already bagging badly at the knees, shows signs of fray round the bottom of the legs, and the bosom of the pants is dangerously attenuated. ***** The last shred of their railway policy is fluttering in disintegrated rags on the back . fence of political oblivion. It looked such a pretty garment when it first came into the House. Morgans, Gregory, and Conolly all admired it, and wanted to try it on, but the Opoosition votéd it too expensive, and flung it out. Then came the new Mines BUL a thing ot shreds and patches. Lefroy was the tailor, bot, being a poor craftsman, failed to make a decent fit of it. and it too waa rejected. There was also a sec- tarian patch on a pair of Education trousers, which the same tailor tr...

PROGRESS OF RETRENCHMENT. STOPPING THE FLOUR OF THE PAUPERISED BLACK. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

PROGRESS OF RE- TRENCHMENT. STOPPING THE FLOUR OF THE PAUPERISED BLACK. When Responsible Government w£ granted this colony, the Imperial Pa; Imiafint. refused to penult the Westn lian authorities to have absolute coi troi of the aborigines. It was felt b the mother country that she could nc safely entrust the well-being of th natives to the administrators of thi province. As an adjunct to the Coi stitution Act, an aborigines Protectio Board was accordingly created, tb object of the- Board being the care an defence of the blacks. It was ale insisted upon that one per cent, of th total revenue of the colony should b annually set apart to assist the Boar in carrying out its duties. From th very first, the colonists-and the "Es pres?" included-clamored against th action of the Imperial Legislature a being an unwarrantable reflection ci the humanity of our settlers, and ¡ studied insult to the people. The re sentment was shown with so much per sistence, and the agitation against th alleg...

ACTA DIURNA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

ACTA DIU MA. A Louse divided against itself pulls the wainscot down. Wanted-a man who has positively never met De Rougemont ! The Official Receiver has afnciaflly re- ceived the noble order of the boot. A deep lead has been discovered ai Feysville, and a reward claim appia ad for. More contempt! "The House of As- sembly contains 44 members-mostly fools and windbags." - "Kalgoorlie Miner." Norton says that Meagher disgraces "even the police court." It would be difficult to find a place which Meagher wouldn't cisgrace. Wainscot threatens to stand for Cool- gardie next election. As Coolgardie is generally understood to be stone-broke, there would be something appropriate in having Wainscot for a representative. Those two noisy persons, Norton and Meagher, have been at it again. A. good plan would be to banish the pah- to Nor- folk Island, where they would iurumh a tale that would knock De RoageoKHrt stiff. Bad times for the Goldfields Press. Both Coolgardie papers are in the hands of t...

CYCLING NOTES, AUSTRALIAN AND ENGLISH. If credence is to be placed in the times just reported from U.S.A., then Rnglish cyclists -will have to look to their laurels if they wish to take pre- cedence on the -world's cycling record list. Up to last season EngifLnel has been an easy first, holding almost every world's record up to 600 miles; but America is now putting in a claim, and has already succeeeded in capturing all world records up to tile hour (?). The latest intelligence from the States gives particulars of a 25-miles match with Eikes (America) and T. linton (Eng- land), in which the latter was beaten by 500 yards in the world's record time of 42min. 42sec. Elkes continued on after vanquishing Linton, his intention being to lower the world s hour record of 33 miles 965 yards held by E. Tay Ipre, of France, and, riding in good style, covered the remarkable distance of 34 miles. 1,223 yards in 60 minutes. If this distance is correct, then the English, cracks have their work cut...

OUR FINANCIAL POSITION. MR. LEAKE'S VIEWS. (From "Hansard.") [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

OUR FINANCIAL POSI- TION. MB. LEASE'S VIEWS. (From ''Hansard.") Mr. Leake:-We are practically at the present moment not £l86ftQ0 in debt, but over a million, aad I am go- ing to show: this House how these figures are arrived at. Last year we re-appropriated out of loan funds £395,000, which we were told would be repaid some day and somehow. That statement was made, by the Com- missioner of Railways whose privileges it was to spend this money; and that was the airy way in which, he told us he would finance and repay. In ad- dition to the £395,000 of last year, we have just passed a Re-appropriation Bill for £360,000, making a total of something like ¿950,000. We were told last year that those moneys re-ap- propriated from loans-at any rate last year's instalment-were to have been refunded out of revenue. If that be so we have a perfect right to charge that sum against revenue in the first in- stance, and the same remark applies to the £560,000 which we have re-ap- propriated this yea...

A WORD IN REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

A WORD IN REPLY. Mr. Stephen Murphy. Dear Sir,-Your candor is as refresh- ing as your statements are inaccurate. I nave never at any time dither by word or deed supported or advocated the handing over of the Coolgardie waier supply scheme to private enterprise, either to Mr. Bargigli or anyone » ¡se. Whoever has told you so has stated what is absolutely false During last session when Mr. Leake advocated pri- vate enterprise in connection with this work I spoke against the idea, and voted ! with the Government against it (vide "Hansard" YoL XL). Your letter only serves to indicate the gross nature of the misrepresentations which are constantly made respecting my political actions. As for the Esperance railway, I was care- ful to explain that I voted with Mr. Moran simply to save the deserv- ing inhabitants of that town from, extinction as a community, and further emphatically expressed my belief that when the line isj constructed it will be in the Government guage and as an instalmen...

TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

[ TOO LATE. I I-* I Had a traveller made his way through I a certain part of the Australian, bush, he ¡ might have seen a solitary tent with the distinct outline of a man within reading a letter by the light of a grotesque look- ing candle placed in a bottle-reading his letter from home-the traveller wouid have said at once-who is at-all familiar with Australian life-men out in the [ bosh do not get many letters, and when they do, one can pretty -well guess they came from home. Dick had received a whole bundle of letters-three-an enormous lot to poor Dick who had been toiling-'in the bush, clearing scrub, cutting trees,, gold-min- ing, and cattLe-droving, and doing odd jobs for the last ten years. There was a lawyer's letter, this one he read first, but could but vaguely under- stand its meaning. For Dick had been ill, vas ill in fact, and he had not had aver much, to eat. He had not the strength to make his own damper that night, and he was in that blissful state of utter weariness...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY There is a^jtrikmg mt»nsΣtency be- tween the Government words and the Governinani deeds. A little while ago Sir John Forrest, who is the Gevern ment, the country, and the people, was loud in his praise of settlement and immigration. The civil servante especi- ally were warned to bring their wives and heirs and heiresses over-in other words, to avoid the "hash-houses," and to commence a local trade with the '"family" grocer. Several young men I know of the -batchelor persuasion be- gan feverishly to dream of domestic joye and matrimonial fire-irons. They were seriously mtmifm^ to advertise for photo-exchanges and helping beauty for a corrugated home.. Others, mar- ried, were cowtom plating importing their spouses-and domestic belongings, when Gov«rmitei^:iiotice>gavB them the 'right-about, and practically ordered them, to make themselves- scarce.7' Now such is the hadTfrH rangement of th&coun try that the -stripe that karo the colony are crowded, and batch...

THEATRICAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898

I THEATRICAL TOTO (By "The Johnnie.'7) I It not " um'roquentiy happens that one enjoys tibe «rna*ÏA«» of conversation car- ried to by the people around quite as much as the dialogue from the stage, particularly so when the play is weak or weakly played. Good studies surround us on every side, and good character bits could be worked up by jotting down memos from time to time. "I'm not a bad looking fellow when well dressed,7' says a collar-conceited young man to the young woman beside him. "Mummer tells me Fm a beaury without paint. £ don't need any-some people do. Fm sorry for them." But the girl who does paint has been heard to say, " Does your mother know you're out?" And some people laugh, and the comedy man on the stage puts it down as "thunder." A few years ago I sat near a father and son during the presentation, of "Insured at Lloyd's." Tony Euglo, the comedy man, was evidently known to him-had dined with them before the play-and Tonys digestion was very weak at sea, and Tony ...
