THE ASIATIC IMPORTATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

THE ASIATIC IMPORTATION BILL. Thus the ^Kanowna Herald" : -''On Wednesday Mr. Bart moved the second reading of the bill in the Assembly, and had it not been that the voice of our member, Mr. Vosper, was once more raised in loud protest on behalf of the people of these fields, it is extremely likely that almost free entry to this colony would have been allowed to the, most undesirable class of immigrants. In our previous article, to winch refer- ence has already been made, attention ] was called to the fact that to fix upon any parallel beyond which the turbened stranger could not go was a mere absur- dity, as once allowed in the colony, they would soon abound in its every nook and corner. Mr. Vosper vigorously opposed the second reading, and he mov-ri as an amendment the rejection of the mea- sure, denouncing the bill as a deliberate attempt to undo the good work Par- liament had accomplished. Of all the good work done by Mr. Vosper in Par- liament, this last act of his will re- dou...

THE PERTH LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

THE PERTH LOAN. Wherr the tenders for the Perth Cirj loan were opened early last week, thc attempted flotation was to all intent« and purposes a failure. .£20,000 came from the Government Savings Bank, another .£10,000 was offered below pal by the W.A. Bank, well-knowing thal the tender would not be-accepted, and tbe balance of -£11,000 was made up of various tenders at par. The W.A. Bank has since raised its tender to par, and assisted to obtain another £10,000 at par from ^Adelaide, wink the Colonia! Mutual has obtained J£H),000 more, thus making the total up to the end of the week .£61,000, or thereabouts. The question now is the raising of the bal- ance. The Commercial Bank, we are informed, has offered to apply for the whole balance, provided it obtains a fair proportion of the-Crty's banking account. It is said that this proposal is being op- posed in certain influential quarters. As the Commercial Bank was the only colonial institution which stood to the «jantry during the re...

The Sunday Times. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1898. ALIEN EXCLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

C|e <§mtkg Cimes* SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1898. ALIEN EXCLUSION. With all its faults, and their name-is legion, the present session of Parliament has at least accomplished, two good strokes of work, for which the country has reason to be grateful to its legisla- tors. One of these is an amendment which was inserted in the otherwise in- famous Mining Bill, which provides that for the future no Astatic or African alien can be employed '" on or about any mine in any capacity whatsoever." By virtue of thÍB amendment, it may be stated that the employment of Afghans and other colored persons in and about the mines, recently so strenuously objected to at Coolgardie and elsewhere, will have to cease. In that way we shall be spared all occasion for further agitation on that point. The other good work accomplished vas of a negative character, and came near to being mischief. Mr. Burt, the elect j of the Ashburton, one of the districts of the Black North, brought in a Bill to abolish th...

SEWING MACHINE FACTS. SINGER SEWING MACHINE NOT SOLD BY STOREKEEPERS. Sewing machines are sewing machines, bul there aré various kinds, and in quality thi variety is as great as the pricer at whict they range. There are macnines of pe rf ec make, wnose names are household words wherever civilisation holds sway ; the-develop ment of their manufacture has been gradual thorough, and systematic, and competition ha made it possible for people of modérale mean! to own good machines at moderate prices The universal demand for the better grade represents a following iii «ll /-liiimto« and ii alf conditions of life.

Admittedly the most important speech " - of-the session of Parliament now draw : ing to a close is that of Mr. Illingworth on the financial position of the colony. Of that speech a very faint idea is given in the daily papers, and we therefore give it in estenso as reported by "Han ^ sard." We regret that the exigencies of space compel us to divide it, but the speech will be continued and completed in our next issue.-Ed. "S.T." Mr. Illingworth (Central Murchison) : Since I have had the pleasure and honor of a seat iii this House, I have made it part of my political duty to examine with 'as much care as lies in my power the Estimates and financial position of this colony. I make no pretension to any special ability to do this, but my mind has run in this particular way ; and I have, I trust, not unprofitably oc- cupied the time of the House on the oc- casions on which I...

The mill is to be "picketed" by the A malgar mated Society of Carpenters and Join- ers, and as most- of the men affected are in a good position to resist the at- tempted innovation, it is expected' that the trouble will not be of long dura- tion.

Tibbits, Au&or of "The Meredyth Mystery,'" "Fighting a Lie," etc., etc. .

Meanwhile, hard by BX another part of the Abbey, the magnificent Henry VIL's Chapel, where ia the- grey, slanting light, over the massive stalls hong, ghostlike and still, the banners of the Knights of the Bath, each, with the owner's sword and helmet below, a strange ceremony was proceeding.

THE POWER OF ENVIRONMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

THE POWER X3F ENVIROIS MENT. -o . Pleasant sin-roundings bare an en nobling and refining influence- on hum- anity, and it therefore becomes the duty of 'all to see that their surround- ings are the best possible of 'attainment. The effect of the effort to reach perfec ion in any object not only elevates the moral tone, but strengthens the mental faculties, and therefore promotes mater- ial success. The first and closest ele- ment on these Unes which commands at- tention is that of dress and personal adornment. Shakespeare says of the former : - Costly thy garments as thou canst afford For oft the apparel doth proclaim the J man." From the earliest davs silver and gold have been the symbols of wealth and refinement. No lady of the present day considers herself well-dressed with- out a certain amount of jewellery. For the selection of such it is necessary that she should go to the best possible es- tablishment. These establishments at- tain their position through intuitive ability and...

SPIES FOR A HOSTILE COUNTRY. STEALTHY WORK DONE BY SECRET AGENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

SPIES FOR A HOSTILE COUNTRY. STEALTHY WORK DONE BY SECRET AGENTS. Every country Lae its spies. They lurk in all large capitals, and haunt the arsenals and manufactories of war mate- rial. Some get paid small amounts for trifling items of information, others re- ceive ample salaries and draw big sums for Government secret« they have wormed out. In former times the spy was busiest when war was actually raging. Often he ran risks greater bj far. than those taken by the maa engaged in the fight- ing, venturing alone into the enemy's camp in some disguise or other, well knowing that discovery meant.death. The daring of these men is well in- stanced by the case where, speaking fluently the enemy's language, a spy, learning that a certain general was shortly to arriva in their camp, pro- cured the necessary uniform, and ac tuaiy impersonated the officer, fib re- ceived a thousand pounds for his valu- able information. To-day tho spy is in season "all the year round." Quietly, secretly, he ...
