A DEPUTATION OUTWITTED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898

A DEPUTATION OUT- WITTED. A certain politician, who is un- usually deaf, and can be more so 1 opon occasions, bas been the origin of many good stories On one occasion he was asked to resign bis seat in Parliament by some irate constituents. He listened to their anconip limen tary remarks with strained attention, and, after they had talked^themseives out of wind and vituperation, rose and feelragly thanked them, in ste eotyped Par lianientese, for their kindly re- marks, which be would always do bis best to deserve, etc., etc. i The deputation were so discomforted that they actually induced the Press to suppress the report of the proceedings. It is further related of this good and great man that being once very anxious to bave a certain railway run through the town he represents, be presented the Government with a signed agreement under which the sig- natories agreed to forego all com- pensation for the resumption of "the land through which the line should run. The Government, though...

ANGLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898

ANGLING NOTES. The launch Venns will take a fishing1 party to Careening Hay (Garden Island) to-day (Sunday), leaving Fremantle at 9 a.n?. A gold and silver medal will be given as first and second prizes, and a really good day's sport is looked forward to. Mr. J. -T. Moore, of the Anglers' Association, will be in charge of the fishing party, and as the launch runs in conjunction with the Gannet to Garden Island, the fishing party can board the Gannet there, and have a first-class luncheon. We hope to see a num- ber of these fishing parties ar- ranged, which will, we feel sure, be largely patronised. For full particulars see our advertising columns.

Perth Scan now boast of a palatial bath- ing estsblishment, as far as the building is concerned, and the frontage to the Esplanade is one that redounds to the credit of the architect, and helps to fill in a blankness and a void that was very apparent when one looked ont upon the river. No doubt the baths will be very much used, as they have long been wanted, and it is, therefore, a pity they are placed in a most filthy and unwholesome sewage-polluted channel. The committee of the council, upon whom rests the con- trol and management of the baths, will recommend to the council that the baths be leased for a term of one year, or longer, under the con- ditions and 'rules in which they have drawn up for its control and management.

LIES AND OTHER FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898

LIES AND OTHER FACTS [Br " BULGARRA."] The hereafter holds no terrors for any one who has panted through the past week in Perth. Even the mercury had to crawl through the top of the glass to cool itself, and pyjamas formed the most rational dress for those who could not afford to sit all day in a bath of cold water with a chunk of ice on the* head. The mosquitoes, like the poor and the Forrest Ministry, seems to be with na always. You lie down after a hard day's work at night on the superheated sheets and the fun commences. The mosquitoes hold a jubilee review of troops as yon close your eyes in vain attempts at sleep The band starts up first on the rim of yonr ear, and then the march past commences. By regi- ments and platoons they come, wheel on the bridge of your nose, the ? miners and sappers dig holes in the skin that burn ; and after standing it for an hour, you get np on your hind legs and rehearse the comtniuation service and the lamentations of Job, drink the pitcher dry, b...

A REAL GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898

A REAL GHOST STORY. Lieutenant Boderick Houston, of "H.M.S. Sphinx, had practically nothing , beyond his pay, and he wafe beginning to be very tired of the West African station, when he received the pleasant intelligence that a relative had left him a legacy. This consisted of a satisfac- tory sum in ready money and a house in Hammersmith, which was rated at over JB200 a year, and was said, in ad- dition, to be comfortably furnished. Houston, therefore, counted on its rental ' to bring his income up te a fairly de- sirable figure. Further information from home, however, showed him that be had been rather premature in his expectations, whereupon, being a man of action, he applied for two months' leave, and came home to look after his affairs himself. When he had been a week in London, he arrived at the conclusion that he -could not possibly hope single-handed to tackle the difficulties which presented themselves. He accordingly wrote the following letter to his friend, Flax- man Low ...

JUNIOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898

JUNIOR NOTES. Among the juniors the shuffling of the cards is now really com- mencing. When East Perth met Guildford-both teams being un- beaten-it was not unnaturally .thought the contest would be a keen and exciting one. Such, however, was not the case, the Perth club winning rather luckily by four wickets. Barker (55) was the Guildford mainstay, and Ed- munds with 15 (not out) showed up well. The rest did no- thing. # * * "A" Australs beat "B's" easily, and the Post and Telegraph also completely demoralised the M.M.C. " B" team. The En- gineers won their match easily, and are now top with East Perth. * # * Among the second juniors the Tfl^pboncs are pursuing an un cheqaered career, so far, and should -unless they lose form-now go through unbeaten.

Torts and Retorts. "THE STORY OF CAMBUSCAN BOLD." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898

Carts wà Retorts. "THE STORY OF CAMBUS CAN BOLD." One of the Perth dailies had the following police court par the other day : " IDLE AND DISORDERLY.-Jas. Thrower, a young man, according to Constable ßretag and Corporal Love, never worked, and, despite the threat of being taken into custody, made no effort to get employment. A somewhat voluble foreign ftuit-hawker said prisoner was in the habit of sampling the stock ou his barrow, and yesterday cried " stinking fish " with a view of throwing discredit- on his (wit- ness's) fruit. Thompson was sent to gaol for two mouths." £5fow,this is distinctly rough on Thompson, who had evidently been, lying low, and saying nothiog until the end of the par. Yet he was in at the finish-like the fly in amber!

ORIGINAL POETRY. AUNT MATILDA'S SEANCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 February 1898

ORIGINAL POETRY. AUNT MATILDA'S SEANCE, *1 i My maiden aunt, Matilda Briggs, had lapsed, I grieve to say, From the Free Grace Gospel Chris- tians to a heretic belief In disembodied spirits, who abhorred the light of day, And loved to frisk about dark rooms in clothing rather brief. My worthy aunt-as converts do-was anxious to excel In all that appertains to raising spirits from the dead And asking searching questions as to Heaven, Death and-well, Say other tilings and places that she knew of, as she said. So, on a certain day she had arranged for a séance, .With every accessory that modern science lends. And, having specially en<*aged a medium from France, I She sent out invitations to a few familiar friends. The day arrived: so did the friends expectant but subdued : Old Captain Hanks and Mrs. Todd ; 1 my second cousin Jane : The stationmaster and his wife; May Ledley and Jack Troode, And a handsome foreign Count, who owned a town or two-in Spain. Then there was General ...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN fundas pintes. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY13, i8ç8. THE MINERS AND THE MINISTER OF MINES. No surprise can be felt, and no disappointment need be expressed, because the Minister of Mines did not chose to accede to the' prayer of the deputation which waited upon him on Friday, and cancel at at once, as any man with a conscience would have done, the predatory regulation with which tie had, in the interests of a little band of obsequious Ministerial supporters, seized the property of alluvial miners and given it to the leaseholders of reefs, who, until lie took .this action, never dreamed of claiming that they had any right to the alluvial gold, nor have they auy such right. But he, by a regulation which gives them a free hand while it ties the alluvial miners neck and crop, has allowed them the opportunity to steal gold which does not belong to them, and he has undoubtedly done this in the interest of the Ivanhoe Venture Syndicate. About this company a few words will suffice. ...

Miss Johnson herself was accorded -the kindliest reception, and being evidently in excellent voice and spirits, sang with all her usual per- fection and more than her usual force. She gave Gou- nod's Berceuse with exquisite finish and delicacy, and being vociferously encored, responded with the familiar old'song, ** Annie Laurie," wich which her audience were intensely delighted.
