PEDESTRIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

PEDESTRIANISM. (By Sprinter.) The final deposit has been paid in connection with the footrace for one mile between D. C. Junner and T. Buck. The race will take place during the-first week in January. I most certainly pin my faith to Junner for this event. He is, with- out the slightest doubt, one of the best half-mile and one-mile runners Victoria has ever produced, and although no longer a chicken, he has looked after himself so w<Jl that, providing " all's square " I can't see how Buck can expert to be in the same street with him. It is probable a walking match will take place shortly for the champion- ship of Western Australia, between W4 J. Hackford, W. H. Henderson and Corporal Clarke. The time of walking, if the match comes to any- thing, would'probably be 24 hours. Henderson, however, has expressed his - willingness to meet Corporal Clarke over any distance tip to 25 ' miles. If the three meet on a " even go" Hackford will surely be out- classed, but it should be a...

The Whecling World. FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORCINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

®|e Mitjerling Starb. FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORCINGS. [By *« Fortis."] ^ For some months past, despite the presence of many old world champions, cycle racing has been on the wane in the Australian colonies. One has not to look far or investigate with any prolonged or extensive enquiry for the mere cause of ( the steady weakening of the , confidence of the sport-loving community. Australians are re {putedly a sport-loving race, but i when the slightest breath of suspicion as to the ligitimacy of any sport is infused into their minds, it requires not "only stringent measures to eradicate the evils whicb leads up to the suspicions, but a body at the head of affairs in whom sufficient reliance may be placed to preserve its purity and uphold its tone. With- out doubt these governing bodies thought the colonies have been wanting in their administration and their duties. This may be accounted for by the unexceptional advance the sport made during 1895 and 1896. The difficulties then experi- ...

QUOITS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

QUOITS. (By Cousin Jack.) This branch of sport is increasing in popularity in Perth. In addition to the several rinks which have been played on for months past, a new on? was opened last Saturday at the Royal Standard HoteL To cele- brate the occasion a match for several prizes- took place. It was commenced on Saturday, and con eluded on Wednesday, when Brock well (six points-behind scratch) met Powell (seven points) in the final tussle. The champion played in wonderful form, and proved too good for Powell. There is no doubt that Brockwell in his present form has no superior in the colony at the 12 yards, distance. Mr. Robinson, the proprietor of the Royal Standard Hotel, intends to offer a handsome trophy for com petition*shortry. All the particulars will be arranged in a few days.

The World of Cricket. When I says "Hout!"—herat you goes. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

CJr? ÏÏ&uxïb úCricket: Br The Umpire. When J nys "Hoot! "-herat you- goes. Westralian cricket has made great» strides during the last few years. How well I remember the first- time we played on a turf wicketon the Association Ground ! How-the bowlers did make the ball speak! Ten runs.in those days were- worth 50 got on the now almost perfect pitches. And the onlookers-few, but enthusiastic who nsed to trudge -down to the far-off ground and sit contentedly on a dozen planks, roughly knocked together, with an old piece of canvas idly flapping overhead to keep the sun off. How interested they were when a ball lodged in the sand and was lost, while the batsman ran ten or so! But we hare changed all that, and to-day we ' possess a ground little inferior to those of Adelaide and Melbourne in cricket worth, and a long way ahead as regards situation. I know of no ground in the world so beautifully placed, with the river running round,three sides of it and the hills and city on eithe...

[?]orts and Retorts. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

Cutís wa Retorts. The other day a contemporary had a pretty little par about a " speaking watch." It used to call out, after the alarm had gone off : *" Time to ^et up ; don't you go to sleep again." M-yes. Soou we shall have watches to remind as not to folget ; also clocks on our mantelpieces which, precisely at noon andmidnightwillsay: "Look here, yold man», make- this -the last. It's a fair thing." * * * Another shining instance of how not to .do it. At great expense, and after several years talk, we are to have a swimming bath in the river, just off the Esplanade. Even now the contractors are erecfcingthe bath, but, of course, everybody in authority has quietly ignored the fact that the once pellucid Swan is being rapidly converted into a stream which resembles the drain- age that oozes from adungbill after heavy rain. All the germ-infected surface water of the City is being poured into theshallow Perth reach, and the result is that, whereas four years ago bathing at the first s...

POOR MR. RYAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

POOR MR. RYAN. Doctors are always up to new tricks, and their very latest out does their previous funniments. A private soldier named Ryan suf- fered so severely from opthalmia that it was necessary to remove his eyelids. The doctors-Max- well, Mooney and Large, of the Dublin Eye and Ear Hospital had a young pig killed, and stitched the animal's eyelids into the places whence they had re- moved those of the man. This was rather rough on the pig, and not very pleasant for the soldier, although the operation was suc- cessful and is expected to have happy results. Still Mr. Ryan mnst expect the undying hatred of the pig family, and not a little chaff from the Dublin Jackeens. He has lost his regimental number, for the military authorities in- valided him, and he consequently will carry that pig's eyelids un- defended to his grave.

A SWEATER'S PARADISE. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

A SWEATER'S PARADISE. (To the Editor.) Sib,-In response to your cour- teous intimation that your columns are now open to ventilate griev- ances or to expose wrongs, I take the liberty of sending you a few lines as to my own and com- panions' miserable lot. Since we came to Western Aus- tralian shores we have never known a da^-'s peace. Ordinarily, we used to work about 8 months in the year for, say, four hours a day. Now, we are on the go morning, noon, and night ! Hordes of rapacious germs, comma bacilli, bacteria, and othei disturbers of the peace we have always been accustomed to deal with, and, so far, successfully. But in this city not only have we to cope with uncounted numbers, but they never cease from coming ! In addition to this, we have to put np with a very much inferior dirt, poorer nourishment, and in- creased spirituous liquors. There- fore, we are going one on strike after this month. We are dead knocked up and absolutely require a rest. Our master shows us no consid...

CRICKET CELEBRITIES. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

CRICKET CELEBRITIES. No. I. Mr. HARRT BROWN, Secretary W.A.C.A. " Hullo ! here's Harry Brown." Quite so. And could any more fit be chosen as *' No. i " in our Cricket World ? If so, trot him out. The popular and hard-working Secretary of the Association is the pivot on which the cricket wheel turns, and' it is greatly due to his knowledge and experience that the grand old game has made such marvellous pro- gress in Perth during the last two years. As an organiser, Mr. Brown excels. As a cricketer, he plays a fair game which would be much better if he had the time to devote to practise. As a runner, he has been in the first flight and is yet " not too slow." As a good fellow well, you all know. Mr. Brown entered this Vale of Tears (and other things) in 1863, and as a two-year-old was celebrated for a good appetite , and a firm belief that the world was flat. He still has the appetite, but has renounced his geographical heresy-a conversion due mainly to the sustained efforts of his pa...

If the women of West australia will adopt the latest programme put forward by their sisters in New Zealand, they will have no difficulty in rallying recruits around the flag of female suffrage. For their special representatives, Miss Scott, the Inspector of Fac- tories, and Mrs. Staveley, the " officer in charge of the women's branch of the Labour Department," have, in their annual reporte, re- commended "the immediate estab- lishment of Technical Schools for women and girls .wherein they are to be instructed^ in domestic duties, not only of service, but also of superintendence." This last department of household know- ledge, no lady can possibly object to "study. Few, indeed, are the fair ones Who would refuse to learn how to manage *fBoor Mary-Ann."

ORIGINAL FICTION. COINCIDENCE OR—? (WHITTEN FOB THE "SUNDAY TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

f -~~~~~" ORIGINAL FICTION. COINCIDENCE OR (Whitten fob the " Sunday Times.") I shall always hold that Jim was a rum beggar. He was from Home, and had knocked about this country from "Wyndham to Albany, and from Geraldton to Mount Margaret easy, happy-go-lucky, and im- provident a¿s á savage. Conse- quently Jim had not done himself much good during his three years " Colonial experience," and, as he would sometimes say, he was un unlucky chap. Clerk, station hand, prospector, ganger and waiter-he had tried these and many other callings, sometimes within an ace of ease and com- petency, sometimes fairly on his beam ends. Jim it was who had held a fourth interest in the now famous " Copenhagen," bnt, being unable to pay up his share, sold out for £10 and a case of inferior whisky, " tired of parting up any more for a duffer." .Five days after, when the whisky was gone, the greater part of the " tenner " too, Jim, in common with the rest of the world, learned that the " Copen- hagen " h...

THE DISEASE MARKET. (To the Editor.) Sie,-As I see you intend to start a really good Sunday paper, and are inviting correspondence, I beg to make a few remarks in your columns-remarks which I regret to say have been invariably shut out by all the other Metro- politan papers. I arrived in this colony from Hamburg, per Sausage, last year, and after a decent interval was released. I at once commenced to look for work, but you may judge of ray surprise when I found, unlike any other country 1 have visited, that it . was impossible to obtain it, owing to the congested state of the Disease Market. I maintain that I was brought out here under false pretences. I was told that the field here was ample : work plentiful : results unsurpassed. Now I find that there is a fair field in which to work, but the place is so over-run with native germs, bacilli and black-leg bac- teria, that no decent foreigner ,can get a living. When I assure you that I am writing this from, the body of a ^deceased fe...

On the Track. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

<§it îjre Crack. With the big meetings so close at hand there are plenty of visitors to head-quarters on fast mornings, and the work generally repays the early trip from town. Taking, -a Une from the tbuts,. the sun has gone in for early rising of late, and though there have been very "few gallops under the stars so far, most trainers have their charges on the track by 5 o'clock. Thanks to a plentiful watering overnight the track is in excellent order at present, though not v«.ry favourable to fast times ; as the morning wears the going is faster, so some allowance has to be made when comparing the first gallops with those done after the sun is up. Of the Cup candidates, Le Var and Fadladeen excite most interest. The Lochiel colt is one of the best conditioned horses at headquarters, and promises to strip the most seasoned horse in the race. Ile generally puts in à sound mile and a half and sometimes runs a couple of furlongs further. On Thursday morning he started off wi...

LATEST SPORTING. CANNING PARK RACES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

LATEST SPORTING. CANNING PARK RACES There was a larger attendance than usual at Canning Park this afternoon, and the staud presented a packed appearance before each race. Though the weather was warm there was at times a light breeze, which made things a little more pleasant whilst it lasted-. There were several Cup horses under silk" during the afternoon, and as the racing itself was interesting, the meeting was a success, though backers would scarcely appreciate the victories of some outsiders. Chance was, well backed for the Hnrdies, and ¡Sataoella also came into the mar- ket. The former ran very badly, but Satanèlla, well handled by Cox, caught First Bolt (who made his run 'to soon) at the turn, and eventually won nicely from Gold and Black. Twelve went out for the five furlong sprint and Loch Isle was soon settled on as "good goods," while Florrie was also supported, and a commission was put in for Sangor.Florrie and Kilt were in the iront of a packed field to the turn, round wi...

From Day to Day. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

Jreiit ipitjj Í0 ^m. We have seen serions reason to doubt the good faith of the Gov- ernment in regard to the exclusion of Asiatics. No sooner had they passed a Bill through the As- sembly, which gave them power to exclude undesirable persons of all sorts and descriptions, than they proceed to throw open the door by means of a new Imported Labor Registry lull. But in both mea- sures the representatives of the I people were informed that no coloured person would be allowed to set his foot south of the ¿6th parallel of latitude. In spite of this pledge, however, that deadly machine for reactionary purposes, the Legislative Council, has in- serted amendments exempting the Abrolhos from the operation of the excluding law. Now the Abrolhos are only 35 miles from Geraldton, they are a long way south of the pioposed colour-line, and they are geographically so located as to en- ] able deserters, or persons landed contrary to law, to over-run the goldfields or the sont ern towns. This change...

No one shall have cause to complain of any lack of candour j but on the other hand there shall be naught set down in malice. "Faithful are t...
