LOCAL YACHTING. SPECIALLY WRITTEN FOR THE "SUNDAY TIMES. No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898

LOCAL YACHTING.     By GARBOARD STRAKE.   SPECIALLY WRITTEN FOR THE "SUN- DAY TIMES." No.1   The series of able and interest- ing articles which is commenced in the present issue of the SUNDAY TIMES will, it is hoped, throw badly-needed light upon the sins   of omission and commission of   those who rule our yachting world.   They have been specially written by "Garboard Strake" with a   view to the thorough overhauling of the organisations that exist for the purpose of promoting and encouraging the splendid sport of yachting, but which, at present seem to have forgotten the reason of their being. With the magnifi- cent opportunities for the pursuit of yacht and boat-sailing which exist in and around Perth - oppor tunities unrivalled this side of Sydney - there should be corres- ponding energy and intelligent direction. These, it is notorious, are entirely lacking, and therefore t...

Aquatic Memxz. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898

Jlqttaííc gfomz. The signs of aa early revival of activity amongst the rowing men of the Perth clnbs are showing strongly. The West Australian Club has just had its boats and gear put in a state of first-class repair, and now the Swanites are having their property thoroughly over- hauled. Before long a beginning will be made, which must neces- sarily be to the advantage of the sport in this colony, not only as regards an increase in the mem- bers9 roll, but a great advancement in the skill necessary to become a proficient oarsman. # * # The Bowing Association of West Australia is a body that should, and could, have a beneficial in- fluence upon the future progress of all matters appertaining to aquatics. Up to the present time its influence has not been too wisely exerted. It was hoped a few weeks ago. when fresh repre- sentatives were elected from the clubs, that measures for the ad- vancement of rowing would be discussed-that all would work amicably together. But at the first meet...

THE GOLDEN FLEECE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898

THE GOLDEN FLEECE. (BY A GOLDFIELDS EXPERT.) Mach excitement has been occasioned and more is likely to result from the differences of opinion which have lately arisen between leaseholders and alluvial diggers. The discoveries at Kanowna (which are very much richer than is generally supposed) have given a great fillip to the alluvial industry. By con- sequence, prospecting is going on in all directions, and many holders of leases, valuable and valueless, seem to see in this a, chance of booming their pro- perties. . « * The law provides that the digger can go within 50ft. of a reef or lode. To get over this difficulty the leaseholders are now marking off imaginary lodes m all directions, and where the wash bas been slightly solidified by pressure they claim that the otuff is lode. . # # The former course was pursued at the Ivanhoe Venture, and. Warden Hare decided that the diggers would have to prove that the lodes were not there. In other words, they were to prove a negative, in its...

ANNIVERSARY ANTICIPATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898

ANNIVERSARY ANTICI- PATIONS. The many readers and sap porters of the SUNDAY TIMES who wisely took m.v tips for the two big events of the New Year meet- ing of the W.A.T.C are, of coarse, anxiously on the lookout for what the inspired sporting scribe of this influential paper may have to say anent the coming Anniversary meeting. Now, generally, I am like the bo'sun in Gilbert's " Cap- tain Reece" (the never-to-be-for- gotten captain of the immortal Mantelpiece) - a nervous, shy, low-spoken man-but there are occasions (and this is one) when Australia expects every man to do his neighbour and " advance" his opinions in a po- lite but forcible manner. There- fore, especially as it is the last chance I shall have of influencing you to provide the survivors of the Lost Ten Tribes with that where for they peril their immortal thirsts, I do now jointly and severally, of malice aforethought, and to all men make known by these presents (other gifts on ap- plication, at our schedule rates) tha...

AT THE WICKETS. SPECIAL NOTICE.-Secretaries of Clubs, and Captains and Managers' of Teams, are requested to send all communications addressed : "THE UMPIRE," Sunday Times Office, Perth. LATEST CRICKET CHAT. There is good news indeed from the W, A.C. A. groo nd. A ß apply of excellent fresh water, flowing at the rate of about half-a-million gallons daily, has just been struck at the depth of 900ft. Now, there will be water and to spare to keep the whole ground green and fresh, and more than that, if, as we all sincerely hope, the Association will give us a nice open-air swimming-bath, there will be a source of considerable revenue to the W.A.C.A. No one who really knows what swimming is, would bathe in the dirty water of the shallow Perth reach, where, in their infinite wisdom, the Council have decided to place the Corporation baths, in r. reference to a clean, white-tiled, fresh-water, swimming bath, fitted with showers, spring-boards, and diving stages. The W.A.C.A. would be able t...

A LOCAL HEROINE. RESCUE OK A CHILD PROM AN INFURIATED DOG. Over at Sooth Perth, and close to Milt Point, live Mr. and Mrs. Kinn in ment, and there is a great reach of shining shallow water shimmering and sparkling over clean firm sands, where the child- ren love to dabble and paddie in the wsrm evenings. And here a few nights ago the childtvn were H masing themselves, and Mrs. Kinninment, busy with her domes- tic work, paid but little attention to their rejoicings. Suddenly she heard a great rumpus, the barking of a dog, the sc. earn» of children, and other noises. She rushed out, and found that a great dog be- longing to one «if her neighbours bad followed ;i child into the water; had become furious.y ex- cited, as is not uncommon in such cases ; was holding the youngster under the water, and was actually worrying it. She dtugged the child from the maddened animal, aud set it safely on shore. The dog immediately attacked her, tearing her in all directions, and inflicting no less th...

MILLIONAIRES OF A DAY. THE STORY OF THE BIGGEST BOOM ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 23 January 1898

MILLIONAIRES OF A DAY. THE STORY OF THE BIGGEST BOOM ON EARTH. Bx ÛLEEBIDEN HOWAED. California was to me a singularl difficult country to understand. Tb only thing which seemed certain abo« it was the climate. Summer and winte you find in the southern counties th dantiest compromise between hea and cold that it is possible fo anyone to fall in love with. Th sweet- land of the sun-down sea has ai ideal situation. To the east lie th great, grey mountains, whose talles peaks are capped with eternal snow ; t the west stretches the blue Pacific, wit! its islands here and there like shadow reflections of the inland hills. But ai the rest is perplexing. California is sometimes beautiful sometimes it is not. Before the rain -except f.>r the patches of cultivatioi that give parts of it thu appearance o: a green and yellow chess board-everj thing seems brown and dusty.

A TRIP IN TIMBERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898

À TRIP IN TIMBERLAND. BY BITNGABKA. Seeing that " Bungarra " has spent the whole past week: among the Limber mills of the south-west, it seems a logical deduction that he should be true to the honoured traditions of the Press and lie about the great timber industry just as well as about anything else. In the capital it is the Forrest Government, here it is the government of the foreste. The Chiago pork-curing establishments are nothing beside these hungry mills that devour huge jarrah trees, digest them, and call for more. In the former case the unsuspecting porker is shot into the machinery at one end with a last long grunt of disapproval. In a few minutes he comes out hams and sausages, with the tail end of the grunt heard faintly in the still wriggling schnitzels, and with his bristles duly worked np into nail brashes. At the mills here, the logs face the music of the saws, are whirled along the benches, and appear in an incredi- bly short time as joists, scantlings, boards and s...

From Day to Day. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898

Jfnrat $jag to fag. Perth is paying the penalty o: municipal misgovernment in a reputation as odoriferous as itt own back lanes. Formerly nc small part of its business revenue was derived from the annual inflas of summer visitors from the gold- fields. Now, these are likely tc remain zealously absent if we maj judge by the following remarks in a goldfields journal : "The metropolis of this province is probably the most unhealthy spot in all Westralia. It is prolific of smells strange and peculiar to itself, all of them different and all of them bad. The visitor from the fields notices this very soon after his arrival. The water in which he washes has a decided odour and a distinct taste, and the general conditions of living are such as to im- press upon the man from the minitifT centres the desirableness of returning thereto without any longer delay than is absolutely unavoidable. Typhoid dread scourge of our earlier days-is making its presence felt in the capital, and late wires br...
