THE GOLDEN FLEECE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
THE GOLDEN FLEECE. (BY A GOLDFIELDS EXPERT.) Tellurides have been struck at the Lady Bountiful, Black Flag. * * * A good example of departmental neg- lect of the goldfields is furnishéd by the Department of Public Works in their treatment of Mount Monger. Over six monthsagoMr.Vosperappliedtothe de- partment for a well at that centre. He has j since received about four intimations, in j reply to as many letters, that "bis letter has been received, and is hereby acknowledged, and that a further com- munication will be sent." This is all the satisfaction attainable. What makes the matter worse is that nearly a year ago the Government bored, for water at Mk, Monger,. and struck it at 200ft. All this while the Mount Monger people have been carting water some 20 miles, and the water found by the department at considerable public expense cannot be made use of. Thus the locality is kept back and short of water, while the public expenditure is rendered profit- less. . * * The Australian Mini...
Torts and Retorts. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
Caris aiúr Retorts. What a farce the " Ministerial tour of inspection " is ! Mr. , Piesse, H.M. Commissioner for Railways, is the latest head of a big department to undertake a perilous journey into the back blocks in order to " inspect " snch " rising townships " as Tooraloora, Kyndliwadalnp, and Bunk:! ira. This, according1 to our own "Extra SpecialTbree StarRepresent ative," accompanying the Ministerial party, is the kind of thing1 that goes on. Four hoars ont of Perth, the train (special, with outfit, tucker, and all conveniences found by a grateful country) draws up at Siraewhere-In-The-Bush-in- dicated by a small, tin shanty, a tank marked with a broad arrow, »nd 27 feet of inch planking running along one side of the rail- way. The Minister, the Assistant Inspector of Old Iron, the Chief Clock Winder, two clerks, and a couple of Pressmen are disgoi-ged by the train and are received in State by the " stationmaster," thc local storekeeper, and 17 blacks, specially mustered np fo...
Swimming Notes. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
£to Imming Jiotes. The second Australasian Biennial Championship Swimming meeting is to take place at Christchurch, New Zealand, during the month of Februar}'. It promises to be one of the most successful yet held. New South Wales intends sending over a formidable team, that will give the Maorilanders all they know to prevent the championship from leaving their shores ; and, taking swimming matters into considera- tion in the other colonies, it can safely he said that the sport is in a very flourishing condition. * * * The Quarter Mile Championship Race of Victoria will take place on February 5. The present holder, Percy Cavill, it is hoped, will again be amongst the contestants, but from the dearth of first-class men in Victoria it is looked upon as a fore- gone conclusion that victory will once more rest with one of the visitors. * # # The annual gala day amongst the swimmers of Victoria will take place on February 12, and a large and varied programme has been put for- ward, and f...

AUSTRAL v. PERTH. The Perth skipper, having von the toss, Dómela, who had Kelly as his partner, opened to the bowling of Bennett. Off the second ball of the day he was caught by Lockwood. Wright joined Kelly, who greeted him by hitting Bennett to the boundary for 4. Wright treated Abbud, ,who went on from the grand-stand end, in a similar manner. Another 4 to Kelly followed, when he was run out. Dr. Kelsall was next, and, with the assistance of Wright, carried the total to 43, when Lockwood caught Wright at mid-on off Bennett.

LATEST SPORTING. ENGLAND V. AUSTRALIA. FOURTH TEST MATCH. BY CABLE. (From Our Own Correspondent.) MELBOURNE, Saturday. There was an enormous crowd at the test match. Trott won the toss and elected to bat. The Australians made a very bad start, and had five wickest down for 32 to M'Leod before Darling started to score. Hill played brilliant cricket, and Trumble batted well. These two much improved the prospects of the Australian Eleven, Hearne bowling in a marvellous manner and shading down good pitched balls over after over. AUSTRALIA V. ENGLAND.

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, JANUARY 30, 1898. JOHN BULL'S MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN ^undag finies. SUNDAY, JANUARY jo, 1898. JOHN BULL'S MONET. It is the foolish fashion of cer- tain Eastern journals, whose mistaken opinions are occasionally reflected in our local Press, to proclaim that " John Bull has a mortgage on Australia ; " ** that these colonies are being weighed down with debts which must ul- timately overwhelm them ; " and that "it would be better to pay higher interest upon our loans in order to raise the money locally, and prevent the outflow of cash." To these sapient sentiment« is added a more or less accurate statement of the vast gold reserves held bj Australian Banks, and a lamentation over " the wickedness of keeping the money idle when it might be pnt to public uses." Then the writers calmly assume that they have proved their point, that the country is being alienated piecemeal to John Bnll, who will presently foreclose and exact his full pound of flesh from each and every debtor. # * * AU this is nonsense, and very intolerabl...

LOCAL YACHTING. SPECIALLY WRITTEN FOR THE " SUNDAY TIMES." No. II. THE BOAT FOR THE SWAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
LOCAL YACHTING. Br GAHBOABD STBAKE. I SPECIALLY WRITTEN POE THE " SUN- DAY TIMBS." , No. ir. THE BOAT FOR THE SWAN. In last week's issue I promised I would give you a suggestion and an outline of a class of boat and rule, as far as my experience goes, that would be in every way suitable for our river. Firstly, we must have stability to carry sail and crew. This is got by plenty of beam. Secondly, a fair rise of floor (not too much), for she would be uncomfortable a« a pleasure boat. Thirdly, covering thefloorfroni well forward, right through to the tran- sóme, which should be very broad. The rule for working these boats is very simple. Measurement must be done when all of the crew aré aboard, and the sails are not to be restricted in any way. because a skipper will know exactly whether his craft can carry her calico or not, and if not he knows his chance of winning is meagre. The dimensions I recommed are over-all, 18ft. 6in. ; waterline, 16ft. ; beam, 18ft. 6in. o.a., and 6ft. at w...
MINISTERIAL MADNESS. IGNORANCE, OR. INFAMY? TROUBLE FOR MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
MINISTERIAL MADNESS. IGNORANCE, OB. INFAMY ? TROUBLE FOR MINERS. It bas of tea been the fate of the journalists of this colony to be compelled to chronicle Ministerial actions of the most discreditable character. Hitherto, those actions have been too easily condoned by the public, partly because nothing better could be expected from a dique of narrow-minded bureau- crats, whose experience had been gained among a sordid little group of indolent colonists, remote from the world and intolerant of civili- sation, and partly because it was well known that the Ministry was demoralised by highly corrupt outer influences. Ir is not likely, however, that the people will very readily forgive the latest outrage committed by the Ministry upon common sense and common honesty. Yesterday, Saturday, January 29th, a special Gazette was issued, as follows : GOLDFIELDS ACT, 1S95. REGULATION 103. Department of Mines, Perth, January 29, 1898. His Excellency the Governor in Executive Council, under the p...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [BY "FORTIS."] A raid was made by a plain- clothes police constable in Hay street West early in the week on wheelmen who prefer to ride on the footpath rather than the road. Despite a tirade of abuse heaped i upon the City Council, the police and other authorities, the magis- trate was inexorable, and they had to pay np. # # * That august body-the League of W.A. Wheelmen-has at last awakened from its lethargy and become aware of the fact that cycle racing is going to the dogs alarmingly fast. The council arose in its wrath and smote several offenders, who were responsible 'for the fracas which occurred on tne Fremantle Oval on January 8.

A WEST AUSTRALIAN TWELVE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
A WEST AUSTRALIAN TWELVE. It is a great pity that the Eng- lishmen cannot come over for a week. We have several really good men here now-men who woaid be playing first-class club cricket in the East were they there. I fancy the following players won ld make a good team to represent Westei n Australia : 1. Meares 7- Duffy 2. Orr 8. W. Moore 3. Carlton 9. Keogh 4. Musgrove 10. Herring 5. M'Donough ll. Bishop 6. Selk 12. E. Lockwood with Gouly and Coombe as emergen- cies. It reads a pretty good team, anyhow, and I think we might play twelve men against the Englishmen's Eleven. The bowl- ing talent would" be some- thing great - Bishop, Carlton, Selk, Musgiove, Duffy, Lockwood, McDonough-in fact, every man in the team could do his lit ile trundle if required; while with Or»-, Moa »os, Musgrove, Car«ion, Si'lk, Duffy, Hen-ina", Keogh, McDonough, and "Billy" Moore in f.jj-m, theie should l»e some trouble ahead for Richardson, Hayward and Co.

LOCAL CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
_ LOCAL CRICKET. The hitherto unbeaten East Fremantle Club sustained their first defeat last week, when the 44 Kats." vanquished them by eight wickets. * The latter club, like their chief rival, the M.C.C., are going very strong just now. On Wednesday they put up the " record " score of 495 against the Fremantle Club, and have, there- fore, practically won that game. They will have begun their return match against the Mets, by the time this appears iu print, and, given decent weather, I expect this game will prove the match of the season. I rather prefer the older club's chance myself, as they struck form a week or two before the "Kats." The M.O.C. put the Australs th'iough in a very thorough way indeed, and it would appear that the latter are going stale. Any- way, if they are to fulfil the high expectations formed at the begin- ning of the season, they will need to pull up their socks and sit back % hard. I look on the Karrakatta-Fre rnantle match as a foregone con- clusion, and s...

Aquatic Mems. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 30 January 1898
Aquatic Mems. Matters acquatical have im- proved. Possibly the warm after- noons have had something to do with the large attendances and the busy appearances of the boat-houses, but whatever the cause the change from solitude to bustle is conducive to the advancement of the sport. * * * The new captain of the West Australian Rowing Club, Mr. W. Wilkinson, elected last week to that position, will have plenty of oppor- tunities of displaying the talent and enthusiasm he is known to possess. Graduating at Trinity Hall, Cam- bridge, and for many years a mem- ber of the Thames Rowing Club, his knowledge of all matters per- taining to rowing will be very valuable, and eagerly sought after He has relinquished active racing for some years, but this must be an advantage to him in the new posi- tion. He will have plenty of time to look around him and push on the new members, and it is hoped that his influence will vanish all the bickerings and quarrels that have retarded the progress of this ...
