I one case, after the despatch c buying orders to Adelaide for certain stock, one of the official immediately scoured round th town and secured a small parcel fe himself. In another case matter of purely domestic interest, abo a which sundry wires had been ea changed, became common gossip and the leakage was traced to th telegraph office. *, * * In yet Another case a pres message was turned to profit and so dire has the evil becom that people in the locality referre to are afraid of confiding import ant matter to the wires.

ORIGINAL POEM THE ARMIES OF THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

ORIGINAL POEM THE ARMIES OF THE DEAD. Down tbe dead years to heedless ears The voices of the lost are borne : Before blind eyes a Legion flies Its viewless colours, stained and torn. Unmarked it comes, with silent drums, Unheard, it marches to the fight : Dumb bu^le-notes from phantom throats lie-urge it onward through the night. What are these men that mock our ken, Whose camps are set in fields afar ? Whence come these hosts of hapless ghosts To waste the Vast with soundless, war? Can spirit-hands with spectre-brands Ou wage in Space their Earth-born jars? Shall the long call to battle fall Within the marches of the stars ? Tes ! Ever on in ages gone 1 fae wor ds have watched this great campaign, And fierce and fast the trumpet blast Through aeons shall resound again. Since first they swung, the stars have sung The Song of Battle overhead, For. face to face, in boundless Space Are set the Ai mies of the Dead ! This is the Law to overawe The coward souls that shun the fray : Weak f...

BESIDENCE AREAS ON GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

BESIDENGE ARE AS ON GOLDFIELDS. For the last four years the^ ~two most vexed questions which have affected our goldfields popu- lation have been residence areas and the rights and status of allu - vial miners. It is an eloquent testimonial to the administrative abilities of the Forrest Ministry that so far they have been able < -bo settle neither, and that the -condition of things is worse ia-da.y than when the problems mentioned ¡ first came under public notice. ' Mr. Wittenoom has at last made , -an attempt to solve the residence area question,, and, according to the daily papers, has addressed ihe following communication to his colleague, the Minister for Lands : "I submit a plan from which you will see it is proposed to deal with the .question of townsites, residence areas, and free areas in three ways, namely : {1} Certain land to be regarded as town- site land ; (2) certara land to be re- garded as for residence areas, under -existing conditions ; and' (3) certain o...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunda[?] [?]imes. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1898. A GREAT BETRAYAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Mailbag Firnes. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1898. A GREAT BETRAYAL. Nine days ago Western Austra- lia was at peace. Men were con- tent to endure in silence the many misdeeds of the Administration, because they were cheered by the early prospect of a Parliamentary I reform which should mend or end the Ministry. The crashing weight of a taxation, falling, as it was in- tended to fall, almost entirely upon those who depend upon the mining industry, was almost forgotten in the new hope inspired by the increas- ed yield of the goldfields. Even the hardships inflicted npon the dis- franchised majority seemed easier to bear in the light of a swiftly coming prosperity. Now all is changed. The mining world is divided into two hostile camps, and that great industry to which this colony owes its redemption from -a poverty stricken and ignominious past, is rent to its foundations. With the exception of the little clique of stock riggers, to whose pernicious frands npon British inves...

Roming. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

lUrtottig. (Bv "STROKE.") The West Australian Rowing Club intends holding scratch races for four-oared crews on Saturday next, the 12th inst, when it is ex- pected that these contests, being the first of the year, will command a large measure of support. It is be- lieved that the entries will be large and the competition keen for the final possession of the trophies. Entries will close at the Boat-house at 2.30 on day of the races. * # # The second competition for the Alphin Thomson Handicap Sculling Trophy, presented for competition amongest the members of the W.AR.C, will take place shdrtly. This trophy is to be won twice, not necessarily in succession. On the first competition it was won by Vioe captain Kelly from the 5-sec. mark. That interest in the possession of this trophy is very keen is seen by the number of members who go out practising-oh, dear no, not training at all, only " going for a a paddle"-but, all the same, with their eyes on the main chance. The handicappers wil...

The [?]orld of Cricket. (BY THE UMPIRE.) When I says "Hont!"—hout you goes. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

tb? WLoxlb 0f Cricket. (BY THE UMPIRE.) When I says " Hont !*'-herat you goes. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. A. HAZELL (Subiaco). - The English player who compiled most runs in county cricket last year was Abel, who in 50 innings scored 2099, and " Eanji " came second with 1940 for 48 innings. A. E. Trott, late of Vic- toria, headed the bowling averages, but Richardson took more wickets than any other bowler. Surrey thus really possessed the champion bowler and the crack bat of the year. J. P. HENBY.-No less than three of the present English team achieved the great distinction of-scoring over 1000 runs and taking over 100 wickets in first-class cricket, and they are Hay- ward, Hirst and Wainwright. I die agree withy ou when you say that the Australians were the better team. The Englishmen are quite out of form, and have gone "stale," while the weather they have experienced has simply knocked them endways. But there is no doubt that the Aus- tralian bowling is wonderfully good. E. F.-Th...

No. II. THE BOAT FOR THE SWAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

BY GABBOARD STBAEE. Specially Written for the SUND AT TIMES. No. IT. 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 i>e uncom- fortable as a pleasure boat). Thirdly, carry the floor from well forward right through to the transom, which should be very broad. The role for working these boats is very simple. Measure- ment must be done when all of the crew are 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 recommend j are over-all, 18ft. 6in.; waterline, 16ft.; beam, 6ft. 6in. o.a., and 6ft. at water- line ; depth a...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [BY "FORTIS."] That august bod j the League of W.A. Wheelmen has completed its first year of existence. Naturally the first question which come into one's mind is, Has the Leagne done the sport any benefit, and has it carried out the object for which it was formed ? # # * This is, to say the least, very debatable. Many, and, I think, the majority, of those who have watched its career will say, de- cidedly, no. Much has certainly been done to bring the sport more prominently before the public, but those in authority have un- doubtedly failed to govern the game as it should be governed, and the result is that to-day we have to acknowledge that cash cycle racing is fast declining. * * # But not only is this so ' in West Australia. All the world over the same decadence is makùtg itself felt, and the cycling press generally are of opinion that the sport is gradually sinking in the estimation of the public. This general de- terioration points to the fact that...

j 3toiatming. The Middle Park Club (Vic> have unearthed a rather smart: swimmer from whom great things^ are expected, and in view of the relinquishing of racing by many of their old votaries who have worthily upheld their prest ge in the past,, the advent ot somebody a bit above the average swimmer is hailed wiih satisfaction. That they have cause for being satisfied with W. Coringe is apparent when his performances this season alone are taken into consideration of starting three times from the scratch mark,, and winning on each occasion, dubs him as being good. * * # It will come as a surprise to many to hear that Percy Cavill, the famous Sydney amateur swimmer, who has just returned from England and the Continent after a very successful time at swimming, and who brought back with him many championships, intends returning to England shortly, where he proposes to enter the ranks as a professional swimmer, and who intends to try and take the world's championship, from J.

LIES ABD OTHER FACTS [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 February 1898

LIES ABD OTHER FACTS [BY *' BUNGABKA."] In the strangers' room at the -House a day or two ago, a mining engineer ("expert " is libellous^ was seated at the table using all his eloquence to persu de a big man in a short Ascot coat to write him a report on a certain claim he wanted to float. The expert was well dressed and his powers of per- suasion were in inverse ratio to hi6 reputation, which was of the old stilton cheese variety. The member for Tinned-Dog, standing near, remarked to the Minister for Tacker at his side : " Our expert seems to be suc- cessful in his quest." "Not at all," was his answer, " he's merely feating his Oats." # # * Strictly as a funeral cortege the train from Perth to Albany re- flects gréât credit on the Com- missioner of Railways. A few years ago the procession moved forward as far as Beverley, which was reached about nightfall, and here the locomotive was tied up to a tree with a rope, as it was not considered safe to run trains after dark.

A correspondent writes:-The circle of the Theatre Royal was on Monday evening honoured hy the presence of a certain group of Perth worthies. They had partaken too freely of the wine that is red, and evidently mistook the theatre for a cockpit. As long as they limited their anti, to mere horseplay amongst themselves they were only a nuisance, but when one of them persisted in smoking his pipe, he certainly should* have been rele- gated to the tender mercies of the "chucker out." This, may serve as a warning for better behaviour in the future. T was not there myself; and cannot say how it went on, but I saw a pack of well-known Perth worthies try to light cigars, pipes and cigarettes during the exhibition of the Oorbett-Fitzsim mons fight, and mightily displeased they were at the firm, not to say peremptory order to cease smoking. £ also saw, on one occasion, a par- ticularly nplof tidal pe...
