HOW MAHDISM DIED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

HOW MAIIDISM DIED. Among the incidents of the battle of Omdurman the most impressive was the final effort of the fighting members of the Khalifa's own family to retrieve the fortunes of the day. It was thrill- ing to watch the hundreds of white flags ' bearing down on the front of General Macdonald's Soudanese Brigade, spum- ing the hail of the cross fire from Gene- ral Lewis's Egyptian Brigade. The va- liant Mah diets, foot and horse, " surged forward around the black banner of the Khalifa, and gathered with an Ímpetu», which, if it. had not been for the oppor- tune arrival of the Lincolns in support^ would have carried them on to the bayo- nets of Macdonald's Soudanese regi- ments. As it was, although decimated' at every yard by a continuous stream ol lead from the front and flank, they fal- tered on till only a mere handful of dis-' mounted men remained to plant th« black banner in the sand and die around iL It may be said that round this ban- ner Mahdism died. The handling of Bi...

THE JOURNALISM OF THE GUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

THE JOURNALISM OF THE GUTTER Under the very appropriate caption of "Vulgar Vilification and Venom," the following tirade appears, in the last issue of ''the official oigan, of the Perth Trades and Labor Council" :-Aniphic tyon has seen fit to make several per- sonal attacks upon this journal for rea- sons which are obvious to the common sense of our readers-the working peo- ple. Therefore we are reluctantly com- pelled to relinguist a portion of our valu- able matter for the purpose of scratching this malevolent and itchy ex cresence. We would ask our readers! to bear with us for this issue while we rid ourselves of this paltry, pettifoggia^, pimple which is trying to blotch the fair ; face of respectable Sunday journalism We always read his spasms (same as h¿ reads ours), and to accuse him of béh:¿ : satirical, or censorious, is altogether! wrong, and calculated to further swell the upper part of his body which con- tains the lowest part of himself.

A SENSIBLE LEGISLATOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

I A SENSIBLE LEGISLATOR. In these days of legislative quacks and quackery and talking of twaddle about "dignity," it is indeed pleasant to be able to apply the above title to any of those who have been elected to the present Parliament. Such a one, how- ever, is Capt. Oats, M-L.A., who having been compelled by his medical adviser to keep silence during the session has given us his views on mining questions in an excellent- little pamphlet of which we are glad io acknowledge receipt of a copy. The tenure of the genial captain's views may be gathered from, the following extract:-"The continu- ous cry with certain classes in this colony is capital ! For many years we have been almost deafened by its reiter- ation. My own prescription for West- ern Australia is work! I know that capital well directed is very useful, and I am most desirous that its rights should be protected; but our experi- ences in this colony have not exhibited capital as an unmixed blessing. In many cases it may be s...

OURSELVES AND "CLARE'S." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

OURSELVES AND " CLARE'S." In using che above caption, let it not be imagined that we intend any wrong or disrespect to the large-hearted little ei-Coolgardie journalist^ who sunk his capital in trying to endow Perth with an independent and trafhrul print; and who, in * failing to do so, left to. a certain local paper "the legacy of his name. We desire rather to refer to the flippant dilletantist journal which continues to bear the name he gave it. This paper, after a silence of some weeks, has been good enough to recommence the free advertisement of the ''Sunds-y Times," and that we be not considered lacking in courtesy, we repay its atten- tions in kind. In the space which its conductor has been good enough to de vate to our concerns, it says: -" 'Sunday Times7 incorporajteB an article from the "Kanowna Herald' in praise of Hr. Vosper. No mention is made at all of the ' Sunday Times' or any other paper in the article, which refers to Mr. Vosper alone. Yet at the end of it we find t...

ACTA DIURNA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

ACTA DIÜMA. The curse of W.A.-The speculative law shark. Sharebrokcrs-deadbrokers. Syn- onymous terms Î The police drew another blank on Tuesday. Went for a coining plant and secured-a rice mill! Virulent small-pox being now raging in Natal, it might perhaps be worth while to keep an eye on some of the steamers arriving from there. I In Queensland, the latest suicide fad is to swallow a pound or two of -dynam- ite, and then to fall gracefully over a precipice. Result : A gentle rain of meat upon the surrounding landscape. - If swiftest death should be your aim, Be calm and do not worry, Eat- half a pound of dynamite, And dynamity hurry. It is a lovely principle of law that al- lows a man to issue a writ against an- other upon any grounds, and to go scot free of any consequences whatsoever. Not only does it blast a man's commer- cial credit, for it is published in two trade journals, but it further permits all sorts of attempted blackmail and "try-on." It is reported that Captain Dre...

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

[ CYCLING NOTES, (By Scorcher.) The American, English, and Austra- lian. Firing Start Hile Records are as follows: America, lmin- 32 3-5sec., fay E. Tay lore. England, lmin. 35sec., by J. Platt-Betts. Australia, lmin. 38 l-5sec, by R. Walne. A glance at the above figures will show the relative time in each country, Ame- rica coming out on top with the world's record. England had the honor of holding this important and coveted re- cord for some years past, and, the chances are, would have held it this year if J. Platt-Betts had not met with his serious accident some three months back, a6 this little rider gave every pro- mise of establishing a new world's re- cord, as he was riding particularly well previous to his disastrous fall. Austra- lia, with her lmin. 38 l-5sec., through the agency of champion R. Walne (on Dunlops) is not far behind the Ameri- can and English times, and considering the conditions under which Walne's mile was ridden, the Australian record is as .creditable a p...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor "Sunday Times." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor "&amp;mday Times." Sic,-On reading the able article on] swimming which was in your paper of : the 16th inst-, I observe that the Perth Swimming-baths are mentioned, as re- ' qmring a better system of manage-i meat, especially in the ladies' baths, than what was in vogue last year. As the baths were only constructed towards the end of last summer, and were run by the City Council until the end of Match, I cannot say how they were conducted, as I did not take pos- session until the 1st of April, since which time Mr. and Mrs. Edmonds, who are good swimmers, have been care1! takers, and both most civil and atten- tive to bathers. The boulders which caused some annoyance last season have been removed, and hoarding has aho been erected round the baths, which makes them now quite private. Depth boards are ateo being erected. Every- thing is being done to satisfy the most fastidious. I would like, also, to men- tion that it is only 3d. that is charged for a...

DISCOVERY OF DIAMONDS IN THE NORTH-WEST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

DISCOVERY OF DIAMONDS IN THE NORTH-WEST. Over a month ago the ''Sunday Timee:' announced that a discovery of diamonds had been made in the North-West, which might have a good effect on the imme- diate future of the colony. The state- ment was made long before the matter was noticed in Parliament. We are now glad to note that our information bas been very fully confirmed. A re- cent telegram from Cossack states that a wild rush in connection with diamond mining at the Nullagine ie faking place. A diamond mining expert (M. Achajno vitz, from Kimberley, South Africa) who went last May to prospect the Nullagine fields for diamonds, left by special stea- mer on Thursday night last for Condon en route for Nullagine to take up areas. Subsequently a four-in-hand, with repre- sentatives of another sydi cate, left Roe- bourne the same day. A number' of local residents have ah» wired to their agents at Nullagine to peg out areas- Considerable difference of opin- ion exists as to the amount of ...

THE COLEBATCH CASE [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

THE COLEBATCH CASE Thus the Menzies "Herald":-"The resolution of the House directing that steps should be taken to discover the originator of the libel was made, as it stated, with a view to do one of two things, viz., either to prosecute the of- fender or to exclude him from the pre- cincts of the House. But until the House has declared which of these two courses it would pursue, the Speaker is not entitled to take action. How does he know whether the will of the House is that the originator of the libel should be prosecuted or excluded from the House! Clearly he has taken upon him- self to decide what the punishment shall be, and it is equally clear that his action is illegal and unwarranted. As a fact, the Speaker has prescribed a punishment for Mr. Colebatch in respect of an offence, for which he has never been tried. No English tribunal, not even that of Parliament, the highest in the land, can impose punishment upon any man without giving him an oppor- tunity to be heard in hi...

CONCERNING WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

f CONCERNING WOMEN (By Cordelia.)

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. "In a multitude of counsellors there is safety." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

PITH OF PARLIAMENT. (Bjr "Bungarra.'7 "In a multitude of ccnmseUors there is safely." King Solomon of that ilk bad 400 wives and 600 porcupines, and he inad- vertently bought one of them a new gem hat, with a floral Covent Garden on the top, while on a trip to Paris. This raised the bile beans of the other 599, who all wanted new gem hats with florists'shops on them, and the Exchequer of Jerusa- lem had been too much depleted doing a mash on the Queen of Sheba to run to it. fie dared not cut the hat in two, as he had attempted to do with a dis- puted baby, and in his wisdom he left the matter to be settled entirely by the Harem. It took them two minutes ex- actly, and Solomon delighted sat down at his new roll top writing desk, and permed the immortal lines at- the head hereof. * * * * The above paragraph is purely intro- ductory, as the policemen said when ¡ serving a summons, and dragged in part- ly to fill up space and partly to show how extremely safe, if nothing else, our Westr...

Whereas certain discoveries have of late been made of certain gold called al- luvial, formerly held to be worthless, but now known to be valuable ; and whereas such gold is earnestly desired by the London Stock Exchange and sundry other well-beloved sharks ; and whereas our good and trusty Sir John Forrest, P.C., K.C.M.G., hath been violently poked in the ribs with an umbrella or other implement of war by a certain dryWaetor or drybiaetera unknown : Be it enacted by the Queen's Most Excel- lent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council and Legislative Assembly of Western Aus- tralia, in this present Parliament as- sembled^ and by -the authority of th» same, as .follows: 1.

THE ALIEN CURSE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

THE ALIEN CURSE. I "Peter Plaiaspeech," in "The People'e Newspaper," a democratic and fearless journal published at Rockhampton (Q.), thus trenchantly deals with the above I all-important question : - I have more than once expressed the opinion that the alien labor question is for Australia the question of questions. Other questions concern our well-being ; this concerns our very existence. Tlie apathetic feeling that there is no real danger, and that the supremacy of the white race is absolutely assured, is simply blockhead optimism. The ~ su- premacy of the white race is by no means assured in Australia. Indeed, it is not absolutely assured anywhere. In order to make this clear 1 wül appeal to history. At the Cape, for example, 1795 there were 11,500 Hottentots and 21,000 whites. Ia South Africa, to-day the proportion has not materially altered in spite of the fact that the diamonds fields hare attracted thousands of white immi- grante. The black man is really in- creasing there m...

ROWING MEM.S [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 October 1898

BOWING MELS (By an "Old W) The boisterous weather erperiencad during the past week, has prevented the crews and scullers in training, from in- dulging in their usual practice. One or two with more daring than the others bave risked going out, and braved the rough water, with an occasional cap- size, by the way of a change from the usual quiet experience that falls to the lot of rowing men. But as soon as the weather becomes more favorable, the river will again charm its votaries once more ***** The Swan River maiden four have been able to indulge in short rows in the sheltered water at the foot of the Mount, and have been able to put in some smart quick work, which shows the crew cff to greater advantage than in the slower , practice rowing. This crew intends picking their champion four-oared crew \ up in their race on Friday, and for a j mile should make a fair showing against their formidable club mates. ***** The West Australian maiden four haye been unable to get out at all, the...
