[?]otes on [?] Books. HAZELL'S ANNUAL FOR 1898. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898
Ilotes on Jlrín Hooks. HAZELL'S AJSÍTÜAL FOR 1898. This valuable work is crammed with information upon almost every conceivable, subject, and its motto "Avaunt, Perplexity" is to a very great extent justified. I But the Annual trie* to do too much, and the result is oe- j casionally unsatisfactory. It is ! far more importent to have ac I curate statistics than to give the memoirs ot third-rate prime donne, yet the first is sacrificed to the second in many cases For instance, in the list of foreign I moneys there is no mention of Russia and thc Russian rouble. Nor is the omission repaired on the article on Russia itself, albeit that the new settlement, 1896, of the currency, is mentioned, and it is therein accidentally stated that a gold rouble is worth \\ paper roubles. Portugal is also lett out of the list. Yet the rei of Portu- gal, 1,000 to the dollar, is one of the most interesting of survivals.

Tobin, while Ma ny ard was in charge of the Mercantile Glob. Hutchinson showed the best form in the Perth Clab. making 47 runs, Liddelow coming next with 14.

The only other Fremantleites who managed to get into doable figures were Kek- wick and Beswick, who each made 14. The scores were as follows: PERTH MERCANTILES.

THE WtST AUSTRALIAN $anöag pintes. SUNDAY, JANUARY23, 1898. A MILLION OP MONEY. We have obtained one million, aud we are goinir to devote it to the beginning of the work which is designed to take water to Cool- gardie »nd Kalgoorlie-provided that there is any left after the railway and the thirsty places on the ron te are supplied. The pub- lic will be well satisfied if the ex- penditure demonstrates the prac- ticableness of the plan, and will not object to any-outlay, however great, that may be necessary to make it perfect. The one thing that now seems certain is that the daily five millions of gallons will not be nearly enough for the pur- poses the Government desires to achieve. And another grave con- clusion has made itself obvious, which is that the price it is intended to charge will make the cost of water in the future exactly what it is now, the one great reason why life in the goldfields centres is too ! expensive for the workers, on whose comfortable existence the continuo...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No- 6.] To CAPTAIN WILLIAM O ATS, M.L. A.. J.P. Dear Sir,-I am glad to have this opportunity of writing yon, for I have become rather tired of the exceedingly unpleasant work I have had to perform during the last week or two. It is very often annoying to hear the truth, and sometimes equally so to have to speak it; in fact, it would be excellently convenient for many people if the truth could be abolished altogether. I can assure you, and through you, the public at large, that it has afforded me no pleasure to be obliged to write in censorious terms to men who, in their private lives and characters, 1 respect very highly indeed. It is, therefore, refreshing and gratifying to be able to turn to yourself and find it unnecessary to say a single unkind word about you in either of your aspects. At the same time I ex- pect you know my writings well enough to he able to understand that I a*m not likely to unduly inflate your self-esteem by an inordinate use o...

THE QUICKEST WAY HOME. (BY THE EXPATRIATED T'OTBEBSIDEBB.) Written for the Sunday Times. CORNSTALK (Norseman) sings : " Lend me a moke with a tenderieh month, Give me fine weather, bnt no torrid drouth, Show me the back track that leads to New South And m sight Sydney Heads in the morninV GUMSUCKER (bicyclist) sings : " Wheel me an eagle with circular wings. ni flit through the scrub where the lonely wire sings, Indian Ocean at dawn, at noon Alice Springs And Melbourne's paved streets era the morniu'." BAKANA BOT (pedestrian) sings : Olympia's my laurel ! Peel, rub me and start, I'll smoke you a bee-line to break your stout heart. O'er plains, rivers, hills, till the day dawn clouds part And Moreton Bay gleams in the mornin'. TOGETHER : Ler her go! The day is here-the horizon's expanding Pass the bullet on the wing-leave the lightning standing! Shove her through the spinifex, dodge the willy-willy ; Snatch the mirage as yez scoot and plant it in your billy ! Shake her up! Its nip an...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [BY "FORTIS."] Exit Bill Martin, alias " The Plugger," and Australian racing paths are at last rid of the man who at one and the same time showed himself to be the greatest pedaller on the continent and the greatest disgrace to the sport. On Tuesday last he left Sydney for San Francisco. # * * It wonld be interesting to know what the 'Markan thoughts of Aus- tralia, and especially South Aus- tralia, are. Though he made a small fortune in the Sunny South, Bill will have many an unpleasant recollection of the two years which he spent here, and especially two weeks of it, when he was en- gaged in plastering work for the South Australian Government. * * * " And great was the fall there- of." Poor William ! After bouncing, bullying, punching, and boy- cotting, got his deserts. With a last unsuccessful^appeal for mercy, and a final sneak away, " like a dog with his tail between his legs," as Porta put it, the man who was for a time the terror of all cycling l...
Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898
The dates for the Australasian swimming- championships, which are to be held in New Zealand this year, have been definitely fixed upon for February 26 and March 1 and 3, when the recognised cham- pions of the colonies have all signi- fied their intention of being pre- sent and taking part in the con- test. # * * The quartet who are to represent the New South Wales clubs have been chosen, and are as follows : P. Cavill, J. Regan, Sid Cavill, and F. C. V. Laue-» formidable team truly, and one the represen- tatives "of the other colonies will find difficult tn put down. * * * The 100 Yards Champion Swim- ming Match of New South Wales took place on Wednesday last at the Government Printing Office Swimming Carnival, held at the Natatorium, and was won by Sid Cavill after a splendid race from the Grammar School boy Lane by a few feet, with Bishop a splendid third.

LOCAL CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898
LOCAL CRICKET. Now that the country teams have returned to their homes, I would like to point out one or two facts which struck me in regard to their play. As a whole, the ex- hibitions they gave were distinctly disappointing. I notice that my good friend " Long-On " in the West Australian comes to the same conclusion, and not unreasonably. In batting and bowling they were distinctly weak. Any .decent junior team cou.d ''show them round," but their fielding was, on. the whole, very fair, and at times even excellent. They seemed to have none of that " fear of the ball" which alas! charac- terises so many of our local players, and they show a delight- ful contempt for slight* injuries and occasional mishaps. Remem- ber when Gordon said No game was ever yet worth a rap, For a rational man to play, Into which no accident, no mishap, Could possibly find a way. He was not only referring to racing, but, I think, most particu- larly to cricket-at which he was no novice. The men who bat free...

THE DEUCE OF SPADES. Bx WALTEB PBITCHABD. This is the true account of the death j of His Majesty Charles IX. of France, i as witnessed by me, Gustave de i Sanrigny, at that time gentleman-in waiting to the Duke of Alencon, young- est brother to the King. I am aware that the official account of the King's death i&lt; that it was due t > fever, but I do here freely and being about to die, solemnly aver as an eye-witness that death was not due to natural causes. Now I, having led a bad and wicked life., and being soon to appear before the throne of God, desire to unburden my mind of all the dark and weighty ' matters that rest upon it, and to this end do I write, my confession, so that I may die in peace and all men learn the truth. Before I commence my narrative, it is as well, perhaps, to explain the state rf affairs and parties in France in the year 1573. The Queen-Mother, Cather- ine de Medici, was the real ruler of France, and under her rule all the land crouched in ter...
