[?]orts and Retorts. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
Carts wà Retorts. ï see that there is a somebody on the fields who rejoices in the name ; of Foss Fabricas. This unfortu- nate being (from the name it is quite impossible to spot the sex) was recently fined £30 for selling less than allowed by law. This looks a queer offence till yon learn that the business was conducted nnder a "gallon license." It rather looks to ns As if Foss Fabricas, Whether it be a he or she, Would do a gentle cuss When fined that thirty quid. (No douht the person did.) For the Law to make a fuss, Seems rasher mean to us. It oughtía wink at a little drink, Champagne, shypoo, or wuss But the Law's a hass-that's clear. We've known it many a year ! * * Two prominent citizens of the glorious City of Dreadful Skite got a great surprise the other night-or, rather, the other morn- ing.

täfcmttgs ftam fonte. (BY THE OLD PÜATGOEB.) Leave off your damnable faces, and begin.' There was a good deal of local discussion as to whether that most admirable vocalist. Miss Lilian Tree, would appear at the Theatre Boyal or at Cremorne. The lady settled the question in a summary fashion, by deeiding not to visit West Australia at all just now. * * * On Monday, the 24th, when Mr. Harry Rickards' Biographe Com- pany does open at the Theatre Boyal, the bright, particular star will be Miss Fanny Wentworth, a lady who gives an excellent monologue entertainment, a thing rarely achieved by a feminine artist. Others of whom I hear excellent accounts are Master Sher- win, a young soprano, and Mr. and Mrs. Moritz. Mr. Sydney Dean all t'othersiders know well. The com pany in short is a strong one, and it is said that the Biographe sur- passes all instruments previously shown here. * * # Messrs. Jonesand Lawrence take their clever company to Fremantle for a week. I sincerely hope that the ...
GOVERNMENT BY GAG. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
GOVERNMENT BY GAG. Just before the Premier started for the third series of High Jinks to be held in the name of Federation, which neither he nor any other of the sham patriots who take part in the dreary farce intend to become an accomplished fact if they can in ¡ any way prevent it, he drew up an order, which for political pro- fligacy could not be. equalled-ex- cept perhaps in St. Petersburg or the Transvaal. It is addressed to the heads of the public departments, and it forbids those officials to give any information whatever to the press "excepting that of an unim- portant character, which is to be communicated immediately " to save appearances. " No infor- mation of any importance is " to be given to the Press until it " has been laid before and care " fully considered by the Cabinet, " which considers the comments of " the public journals inconvenient." j A stronger word than this was used, but withdrawn. The result, however, is the same. Ministers are hence- forth to use the ...
PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 5.] To ALBERT EDWARD MORGANS, Esq[?] M.L.A. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 5.] To ALBERT EDWARD MORGANS, Esq.., M.L.A. Dear Sir,-As you are member for no : only the largest goldfields constituency, but for absolutely the* largest in point of population in the whole colony, it may be won- dered why I did not address my- self to you earlier in the present epistolary series. I confess, how- ever, that I have been impressed, with the mystery which invariably surounds your political move- ments ; and, gazing upon you with some degree of astonishment, like a new chum admiring a platypus,, have scarcely known which end to tackle first. And no Brahmin or Red Indian medicine man knows better than yourself the value of mystery and its effect upon the human mind-whether vulgar or educated. The Christian maxim,, which bids us be " all things to all men," you most zealously cherish and follow-with the result that my first simile is a rather apt one, though I say it, who should not.. In Mark Twain's latest work, he undertakes the task ...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
TURF TATTLE. After the big New Year meetin of the W.A.T.C. the local racin world is strangely empty of interés Perhaps the queerest feature of tbs event was the failure of ih " sweeps " which are now so frc quently got up to cloak questionabl practices. The public of thi colony in general, and of th capital in particular, are tired t death of 2s. 6d. "consultations and 5s. " art unions," and they hav proved this by ignoring mosi if not all, of the variou ."promotions'' for enabling some body to "scoop" io per cent, c the foolish and unthinking P.P.' money. Sweeps of " 20,000 at 10s. or "50,000 at-5s." have been gla&lt; -to "close at" 6,000 or 10,000, a the case might be, but the wrath c the prize-winner who expected t&lt; get, say, £100, but actually receive( £18 or thereabouts, is the only pei manent result The thing is ovei ?done, and the sooner half the pre sent "sweeps*'collapse the better fo .everybody concerned. * * # Quite right.

Aquatic [?]ems. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
Aquatic ^ems. In my notes of a fortnight ago I mentioned that several accidents had happened to children who had fallen from the jetties, and sug- gested that the authorities should place buoys or live-saving gear on them. On Tuesday last a lad fell from, the Swan River Company's pier, and would have been drowned. One of the employees without waiting to undress jumped in and rescued the boy, none the worse for his immersion. The authori- ties must sooner or later either place facilities on the jetties for rescuing those who fall in, or else give the police authoiity to order away the juveniles who frequent those places. There is every probability that a suggestion that has been con- stantly dramming into the rowing men of Perth will bear fruit, and that the clubs will go in for scratch combination races. If the two local clubs will only combine and hold four-oared or pair races amongst their members they will be surprised how readily they will catch on, and I can safely promise that...
[?]otes on [?]ew Books. PEARSON'S MAGAZINE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
ß,aU& ott Stein Hooks. PEARSON'S MAGAZINE. .A splendid double number of " Pearson's Magazine" was issued in honour of Christmas, and has reached us through Messrs. Gordon and Gotch. It contains 184 . pages of stories, sketches, and poems, printed in colours, and profusely illustrated. The wierd, strange story of "The War of the World's " by Mr. H. G. Wells, comes to a most star- tling and dramatic conclusion, and there are in addition four and twenty contributions by the most famous writers of the day. Mr. Rudyard Kipling has an Indian military story called " The Tomb of his Ancestors/' to which special value is given by the introduction of a vein of sentiment unusual in his writings. Sir Lewis Morris apostrophises Venus in verses which will be popnlar with yonng lovers, " The Adventures of Cap- tain Kettle," the " J,D.B." stories, and the "Stories of the Red Cross," are continued with their usual effect, and the remaining contents are varied and interesting in the highest d...
IN RE THE RANK DUFFER G.M. (WRITTEN FOR THE "SUNDAY TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
IN BE THE RANK DUFFER. CM, BY GEO. HOPS. (WBITTEN FOB THE " SUNDAT TlMES."} There were five men lined up in front of the bar, and old Mick Doherty paused from picking his teeth with the corkscrew as he leaned forward, and said, soothingly, " What's your poison, gents ?" " Same again." " Whisky." "Forty-rod." " Tangle-foot." " Snake-juice." Tie tones in which the answers were couched were as widely varied as the physiognomies and habiliments of the speakers. To commence at the top of the bar, the first man was without doubt " a toff." He wore a coat and a pair of socks with his other clothes, and his trousers were turned up at the bottom, presumably because it was raining in London, a place from which he had just returned with " piles of capital behind him and a big connection," as he was fond of telling the boys, standing the while with his right thumb stuck jauntily in the armhole of his waistcoat, his left hand rattling the pennies and keys in his pocket and half a bottle of whisk...
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 16 January 1898
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [BY "FORTIS."] Wheelmen during the last week have been loud in their complaints regarding the manner in which they are debarred from using the training track on the Association Ground. The cricketers* " country week " is playing sad havoc with the form of many racing men. The chief an- noyance is that no notice is given that the track will not be available. For a few days several cyclists ar- rived at the ground at about five o'clock, gazed abstractedly at the wielders of the willow for a few minutes, and then wended their way homewards, thoroughly dis- gusted with the cricket authorities and the players. Bo5'land, the flyer of Coolgardie district, who defeated all the riders from the coast, both in handicap and scratch events, has arrived in the metropolis, preparatory to getting into form for the forth- coming events. Mr. Hocking, one of the mem- bers of the Executive Committee of the League, arose in the might of his wrath at the council meeting on W...

THE THIRD TEST MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898
THE THIRD TEST MATCH. Hats off ! 573 ! ! An innings and 13 runs ! ! ! Two out of three. It was a famous victor/, and. one upon which the Australians can congratulate themselves, as un- doubtedly the best team (at the time) won. The only question that agitates the public mind is " What on earth was the matter with the Englishmen ?" To think that such a superb batting team as they un- doubtedly possess should go out for well under 300 runs on a per- fect wicket, twice running, makes one wonder whether it was the weather, over-eating, over-heating, or over - confidence. Perhaps each of these causes con- tributed to the poor effect. "With the exceptions of that master of the game, the mighty Maclaren, and Hirst, Hayward, and "Ranji," the whole team appear to have be- come completely demoralised by the fine bowling of the new men. However, there are still two more matches to come, and we shall un doubtledly see something better from our visitors. I fully ex- pect to find them taking an a...

ORIGINAL POEM. THE LAST BOURN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898
ORIGINAL POEM. THE LAST BOURN. The Day, which dawned so fair and bright, Bobed with the splendours of the Sun, Dies in the arms of weeping Night ; His brief coarse ran. This morning, like a silver blade. The still stream slept by hill and glade And verdant lea. Gone is the gliding mirror-tide; A sullen river races wide Toward the sea ! So dawns our life: Youth's halcyon days Lead us by paths undimmed, by ways All sun and song ; But, as we pass from out the Gate, Care, Sin, and Sorrow, Strife, and Hate Around us throng. And weary we must wander thence, Without respite, without defence, Nor backward turn : Amid that mocking company We move dismayed, reluctantly To our last Bourn. That endless Sea, whereto Death's stream Bears World's and Systems from the shore ; Where Space is lost and Time a dream For evermore ! -EDWARD NEWTON MCCCXKOCH.

Fremantle Bicycle Club Animal Meeting*. FIRST DAY. I _ I OD the Fremantle Oval the club which has been noted for the manner in which it conducts its race meetings held the first day's races in connection with its annual meeting yesterday. The severe heat was tempered hy a breeze which blew from the sea,.making the weather «-ondítious bearable to both competitors and spectators. Chief interest was centred in the one-mile scratch event, in which all of the cracks were competing, including Boyland, the rider who " downed " th * *" coastal " men when they visited the goldfields during the holidays.
