FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

PßOM BAY ^0 -DAY. There is- space-iMOiBráor^a. big.~debate on the question, "Does drink, brmg poverty,.-or does pow ly ?diive-men to drink?" An oid toper friend-of mine: says, "It's a Ettie-of each, and a good deal of both." Bot this opinion is biased, {for rieh nen may be drunk- ards, and. rwwwJj^Hij'WjiM. mortals may be-sober.

ROWING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

BOWING MEMS. ! (By an "Old Un.") After a week's spell the maiden, fours j from the two local clubs- have again I resumed tuition, and it cannot be said that the West Australian, four have' benefited, by the holiday. Possibly their present rowing is owing to their coacher's. absence, and the old faults and failings' have come back very fast to them., Stroke is shaping and rowing the neat-] est oar in the boat, and for one of bis j weight, the blade work is fairly good, j Nb. 3, the Hurcules of the crew, is fairly; revelling in his work, but retards the! swing of the boat, trying to do too much. No. 2 I am sadly disappointed in, still rowing short and stiff, not coming out to it with the others, and finishing with his blade out of the water when the others are three-quarters through. Bow is a regular grafter, but can't get bis hands to drop, and a bad tendency to rush the body jup. Although a rough and by no means a clean crew to look at, they get nace, but to the detriment of swing a...

SATURDAY'S LATEST THE PERTH WAVE OF MORALITY. THE CRUSADE AGAINST GAMBLING. RAIDERS DRAW A BLANK. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

SATURDAY'S LATEST THE PERTH WAVE OF MORALITY. THE CRUSADE AGAINST GAMBLING. RAIDERS DRAW A BLAKE. There iras once a Duke of York, celebrated I in nursery rhyme, but otherwise incon ] spicuons, wno, during course of his mili- tary career "Marched ten thousand men to the top of a hui and marched them down again." -History repeats itself,? whether fictitious or vervac-ious. On Saturday it repeated itself with veracity. A little after 1230 p.m. a, carefully-pre- pared raid on the premises of Mr. George Bolger was undertaken by the pouce autho- rities. There would, it was argued, surely be a big crowd with "whips of 8018" and resultant kudos for the police if they could make a haul on Caulfield Cup bettors at the rooms of Mr. Bolger. One by one con- stables in.plain clothes followed a sob-officer -presumably armed with a search' warrant. They entered the hairdressing saloon, wended their way. -upstairs to the part of the premises where the wicked gamblers might be, and found - silence. T...

CONCERNING WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

CONCERNING WOMEN. (By Cordelia.) I On few occasions bas the Town-hall been faller than it was on Monday even- ing to witness the performance of "Red Riding Hood's -Temptation." a pretty little operetta, in which Miss Heinbockle hod carefully trained some scores of channing children to such a state of per- fection that it required no great stretch of imagination on the part of those who still believe in fairy land, to fancy those ! exquisitely costumed little maids were in very deed woodland elves and sprites. The two small people in my charge were quite sure of it, and found Ute perform- ance all too short to satisfy them. Miss Heinbockle is certainly deserving of the highest praise for the manner in which the children acquitted themselves, every individual success on that evening testi- fying to her long weeks and months of unceasing labors. Of course, there was a wolf, large and very terrible to look upon, aud this monster had a special fas- cination for the young people among the...

KALGOORLIE "MINER" PROSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

KALGOORLIE " MINER" PROSECUTION. -^ To get up and argue that ^he übel would be disseminated all over the civili- zed world, and would reflect on the in- stitutions Of the colony," as the At- torney-General calmly stated, is a piece of fatuous flapdoodle that fairly takes the cake. By the way, some people may think that rbis tender regard for the colony's institutions^-this extreme hor- ror at the bare- suggestion of a fistic ex- hibition-comes with singular grace from a gentleman who settled his dif- ferences with his own partner at the Oe Jginning of this year, by a recourse to nature's weapons and a basin of dirty ¡water, and earned a good deal of un- enviable notoriety thereby. A short treatise on social deportment, from the pen of Mr. Chesterfield Pennefather, would be certain- of a ready sale in Westralia. A Kalgoorlie paper is to be prosecuted for devoting a few Unes to a fight that nev«: happened between twos Perth men, is it ? Six months ago the Perth press perpetrated a muc...

THE METEOPOLITAN WATERWORKS BOARD AND THE OFFICIAL RECEIVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

[ TUE METEOPOLITAN WATER- j I WORKS BOARD AND THE J OFFICIAL BECErVEIi. j I Closely analysed, tEe finding of the select committee appointed to inquire into the Perth water supply and the ad- ministration thereof amounts to this, "That the board lias worked with energy, but without economy ; that considerably more money had been expended than, was necessary ; and that the board should be abolished, about the mildest and kindliest method of intimating to the general public that in the opinion of the select committee the board was ut- terly incompetent to cope with the du- ties it was supposed to carry out. Strange, it seems, that jur months past private citizens and the "Sunday Times" should have been aware of the state of affairs in connection with the board's administration, and that those in au- thority should yet Eave permitted mat- ters to have drifted into almost inextri- cable confusion before it was considered absolutely necessary that steps should be taken to place matters on...

EVENINGS FROM HOME [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 October 1898

EVENINGS FROM HOME (By 'The Playgoer.") j That time when Napoleon was the history of France, its map and descrip- tive geography, could any more fit sub- ject be chosen for the groundwork and whole structure of a drama"! I trow not. And yet what tomes are required to properly embrace athree^bours'play, a five-act drama, Mr. W. G. Wills & ' A Soya! Divorce"' has handsomely illus- trated-not voluminously, indeed, that were impossible, but pithily. Yet, not so much the times but the mind of the man colors the pictures. Once again come home the truths, "What a piece of work is man!" and "Ambition, by that sin fell ihe angels." Mr. Wills has struck a true note, or, better, & vibrant artistic chord, in illustrating the down- fall of Napoleon, with his shameful : divorce. One comes away from the j play as from hearing a commentary on i the man, as from seeing that man pre- paring the noose whereby to hang him- self , one has seen a murder; natural love of power, natural ins...

Once more they made for our ddp, but I was ready for them with the little cannon we had on board, which had again been loaded with grape after the first discharge. With a roar this belch- ed forth a second deadly hail against the advancing canoes, and the effect was to demoralize them completely. One of the boats was shattered to pieces, and nearly all the men in it were more or less seriously wounded, whilst the oc- cupants of several other canoes receiv- ed injuries. - Quite a panic now ensued, and the fleet of canoes got inextricably mixed. Several showers of arrows, however, des- cended on our deck, and some of them penetrated the sails, but no one was in- jured. The natives were too much afraid to advance any farther, and as a wind had now sprung up we deemed it time to make a race for ...

EVENINGS FROM HOME [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

EVENINGS FROM HOME! (By "The Playgoer/') Thursday evening saw the introduc- tion at the Theatre Boyal by the Boyal Dramatic Company of the dramatised version of Anthony Hope's famous neve! "The Prisoner of Zenda." Un- fortunately the weather was unpropi- tious, and as a consequence the theatre was not so full as it has been hitherto during the season, still there was a good house and those who had braved the weather were well repaid, as the piece from beginning to end was a rich treat and was staged in the most perfect manner, and altogether, I ven- ture to opine that "The Prisoner of Zenda" will prove the most popular play that the company have staged. In the coronation scene the occasion for the display of magnificent dresses and bright uniforms has been taken every ad- vantage of, and the scene is one of beauty and splendour that will long be remembered. * * » * * With the novel the majority arc ac- quainted, and it suffices to say that the chief points of the clever work are (sk...

LIBEL ACTIONS NEVER HEARD OF. THUS IN THE PRESS SOMETIMES VICTIMISED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

LIBEL ACTIONS NEVER EEARD OF. THUS Di THE PRESS SOMETIMES VICTIMISED. It is not the libel actions about which we read, with the heavy damages which have sometimes to be paid, that turn the newspaper editor's hair grey long before its time, but the countless cases which are continually coming up, and which are settled out of court, so that the public may know nothing of them. These cases constitute an appreciable portion of the annual expenditure of a newspaper. Heavy damages are often paid in respect of remarks which were" made in the most complete innocence, and which, indeed, to the ordinary reader, would look void of all offence. But there is an ingenious solicitor some-! where who knows his business well ; and he, in a. moment of inspiration, discovers that a false and wicked libel lurks beneath that mask of purity. The discovery costs the newspaper proprie- tor a hundred pounds cr so ; and the solicitor, with pocket full of gold, re- joices. Though! at first sight it may appear...
