CONCERNING WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898
?0¥ßIRNING WOMEN M i.i (By "ConfeUft.") 1 Kb doubt if it were not for the vast .counter attractions provided by the "Sign of the Cross" on Monday, eveningy die Town-hall would have been crowded to witness the performance of the "Helping Hands" Company, who so gene- rously tendered their services in aid of the Home of the Good Shepherd. Nevertheless the room was fairly filled with an audience inwardly appreciative,; but loth to outwardly testify to that same, for fear the gracious Presence i in the vice-regal chairs might imagine1 they had been born in the sand, and brought up in the sand, and, in facty didn't know "chicken from turkey." . *. * * * There was no reason why they need not have given way to genuine amuse-i ment. The acting of Miss Gush Hein-, bockeî and Mr. Stilling Duff, in that, pretty little comedy "The Happy Pair," was distinctly good ; I have often paid stiff prices in big theatres and received very inferior amusement in exchange. For the- second portion of the pro ...
THE PREVENTION OF CRIME. HOW NOT TO DO IT. THE TICKETS OF LEAVE REGULATIONS. BARBAROUS, CRUEL, AND OBSOLETE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898
THE PREVENTION OF CRIME. HOW NOT TO DO IT. THE TICKETS-LEAVE REGULA- TIONS. BABBABÖÜS, CRUEL; AND OBSOLETE. Ta a recent issue of a daily contem- porary appeared an article giving a very fair summary of tue changing ideas of society in respect of the treatment of crime and criminals. At present also the Boyal Commission appointed to in- quire into the working of the penal sys- tem of the colony has commenced opera- tions, and it will ba -well if the members thereof direct some portion of their at- tention to the tróket-of-Ieave system now prevailing in thia -colony. Until the other day the present writer was not aware that tickets of leave were granted to any persons except convicts sentenced to long terms of penal ser- vitude; but was disabused of this notion by meeting a man who, with only three years to serve, has been released at the end of 18 months on such a ticket. At first sight this remission of the penalty of confinement looks like mercy, but it will be shown that the restr...
IS IT TRUE [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898
IS IT TRUE That a gentleman connected with a certain Board sold a machine one week to a friend, and re-purchased the same &nbsp; machine at an advance of £300 the same week for the Board of which he was a member? &nbsp; That it looks as if there is room for the law to be amended in cases of mis &nbsp; appropriation of public moneys by members of Public Boards? &nbsp; That Wainscot is not the only man who knows of a few rotten items in Aus- tralia? That some members should move in the House that all evidence taken in connection with the inquiry in the Water Board, should be paid for, and published in every paper throughout this colony ? That the report of the committee ap- pointed to inquire into the running of the Water Board only shows a clear case of misuse of £70,000 of the hard earned money of the taxpayer ? That if details had been published, instead of the lump sum, in connection with a certain Board, every right-think- ing man would have come t...
ROWING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 9 October 1898
ROWING MEMS. -o- , (By an "Old Un,") j As expected through, the postpone- ment of the West Australian Rowing club's regatta, many of the competitors who had been training growled and &nbsp; complained through being deprived of a row, with the possibility of a win or two, but taking the bulk of those who intended competing, the -almost unani- mous conclusion arrived at was that the committee of the club was perfectly justified in doing as it had done, and whenever the next regatta pro- gramme is issued I feel sure that great- er interst will be ehown by the clubs than was shown recently, in fact many are agreed that owing to the lack of in- terest, and the poor entries expected, the club had no other course open to it than to postpone the fixture, and &nbsp; when we take into consideration that we only have two regattas a year in this &nbsp; colony, and the outcry is for more ra- cing, the apathy shown by the rowing men over the postponed fixture is inex- plic...
AN ENGLISH JUDAS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898
AN ENGLISH JüDAS. Irishmen last month were busy cele-; orating the centenary of '98, coupled! ¡with die name of Wolfe Tone. It is interesting to recall (says the "Daily Telegraph") the manner of his capture. When the French ship Hoche, on which! he was fighting, struck her colors, Tone,, in his French uniform, succeeded in passing as a Frenchman, owing to thal generous unwillingness of the English naval officers to recognise him. But when, later on, he was breakfasting with the other officers at the Earl of Cavan's house, Tone was at once remembered by Sir George HUI, who had been at Trinity College with him. "How do you do, Mr. Tone?" he said, '"I am very happy ta see you." "How do you do, Sir George V answered Tone. How ara Lady Hill and your family?" The police were called in. "There is your man," j said Sir George Hill, pointing^ out Tone to them. He was hurried off to Dublin, court-martialled, and sentenced to bs¿ hanged in 48 houra, ^--^
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON REPORTERS. THE IRRESPONSIBLE REMARES OF A MAN IN A WIG. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON REPORTERS. THE IRRESPONSIBLE REMARES OP A MAN IN A WIG. The Attorney-General of Western Australia, acting as such, fought a bad losing fight in the Supreme Court on Friday. His vain endeavors in cross examination to obtain the answers he desired showed him at his worst, as an advocate for the Crown, but at his best as a bumptious, overbearing Buzfuz. Failing all other resources, he attempt- ed to impress the jury with a feeling of contempt for journalists, reporters, and newspaper men. "They would be at the mercy of these gentlemen, who went about gathering information and, at the same time, helping to make it," said die learned person referred to. Later on, in his address to 'young men who called themselves journalists, and who, if satisfaction was sought from them, it was found had not a feather tc fly with!" Some of those young men can recall incidents in the career of a gentleman who was not then Attorney General of Western Australia. They, at least, neve...

THEATRICAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898
THEATRICAL NOTES --0- I (By'TheJobjmie.'') j At longer or shorter intervals "the Bal- con i an theory of the authorship of Shake- speare's plays is sure to crop up, the '"Quarterly Review" being the last in the field .to the present. In ridiculing the idea, this organ, contends that while Shakespeare had none of Bacon's pro- found scholarship, Bacon had likewise none of the policy, imagination or hu- mor of a Shakespeare. Honored by the invitation of the president of the Uni asked to read a paper on the character versify. Shakespeare Society, in being of Shakespeare, and a refutation of the Baconian theory in Hi, in the Adelaide University,"! expressed a similar view. With the editor's permission now, I should like to make a few remarks on the subject, as this paper heretofore has never expressed an opinion, and as many of our theatrical readers are in- terested in the pros and jcons of the con- tention. * * * * The authority of the plays popularly ascribed to Shakespeare was first ...
THE GOLDFIELDS SEPAR ATION MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898
THE GOLDFIELDS SEPAR ATION MOVEMENT. The West Australian separation move- ment has aroused much attention in the eastern colonies. The Sydney "Evening Newt": "While the rest of Australia is either howling for federa- tion or regarding the matter with cyni cal indifférencié, the Kalgoorlie gold- fields are howling for separation from the parent colony, whom the fields re- gard, however, very mueh in the light of the cruel step-parent in fiction. Of course the cry of separation is in na sense antagonistic to federation ; it only appears so on a first glance. The huge continent of Australia can as well har- bor within its boundaries 15 federated manageable colonies as five federated unwieldy ones. Geographical difficult- ies will probably stand in the way of its ever attaining the same number as the United States. Although the area is not much under, Nature has gifted her with so many natural advantages. StilL the cry from Kalgoorlie is not unseasonable at the present time, and though ...
THE FREMANTLE SMELTING WORKS. A DISQUIETING RUMOUR. WHAT IS THE MATTER? [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898
THE FREMANTLE SMELT- ING WORKS, v A DISQUIETING RUMOUR. WHAT IS THE MATTER? Yesterday evening (Saturday} as we went to press, we were made cognisant cf a rumour to the effect that the Fre- mantle smelting works had ceased opera- tions, thereby throwing over 100 men out of work. It was too late to inves- tigate the question at the time of receiv- ing he news, so that we merely give the story for what it is worth, leaving it to our daily contemporaries to further in- vestigate the matter. All sorts of causes were assigned for the alleged stop- page, but as we are not absolutely cer- tain as to the authenticity of cur in- formation, we refrain from publishing them.'
PITH OF PARLIAMENT. "We axe rained by cheap Chinese labor, And they went for the heathen Chinee." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898
IPITH OF PAELIAMËNT ? (By "Bangamu") I "We axe rained br cheap Chínese labor, I And they went for the heathen Chinee.*' An authority who knows a person who j graduated for the church, but drifted from the dizzy heights of virtue, and became a very wicked member of Par-' 1 rament, once said "Monotony is HeiL" Hie discussion of the Estimates these many nights is monotony. The de- duction is obvious. An Opposition mud stinger who has been heaping coals of eloquence on the Ministerial bead, and who sat out the whole debate, vented the expression, "If I owned Hades, and I also owned tile Assembly, Fd rent out the Assembly and Uve in Hadas.'' * * * * On Wednesday night, however, the monotony was broken by tile Premier, who brought itt a Bill fur the Establish- ment of Zoological Gardens at South Perth. This is as it should be, and the writer begs to offer hints as to how those Gardens should be filled at the close of the E&lt;,;BÍOB_ The following ap- pointments might, with advant...

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898
CYCLING NOTES, (By "The Scorcher."^) The Dunlop 100 miles relay competi- tion is nov attracting considerable at- tention throughout thc colonies, and is the medium of a deal of rivalry between the colonial clubs. The conditions of the contest are that 100 miles are to be covered by a team of 10 riders selec- ted from any one club, each rider to carry a despatch 10 miles, and the 100 miles to be covered in under five hours, the team doing the best aggregate time to win 10 five-guinea gold medals, clubs being allowed to make as many at- tempts as they wish before October 29, when the contest closes. Up to Wed- nesday, the 28th ult., the fastest time was held by the Brisbane branch of the League of Queensland Wheelmen, their time being 4 hours 55min. 13sec ; but this record has now been reduced nearly seven minutes by the Geelong Cycling Club's (Vic) team, they succeeding in riding the full distance in the good time of 4 hours 48min. 43 4-5sec, so that this club now takes the lead.
