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

(Br "STBOKE") The West Australian Sowing Club are showing plenty ul life and energy under the new regime, and from the busy appear- ance of the sheds the idea of hold- ing club races often and regularly has caught on. The races to bc held to-day promise to have a first-class entry of probably some eight or nine crews, which will be the means of causing some little excitement during the racing. ! # * * Another series of races that promises, when once it has been started, to become a fixture, is the inter-club scratch fours, and the first step in their bringing on has been the action of the West Aus- tralian Club in inviting the co- operation of the iSwan River and Fremantle Clubs to hold their races on Saturday, 26th inst. At the very least, sume fourteen to sixteen crews should easily be pro- cured, and a very pleasant series of exciting races should be the result. * * # The proposed handicap sculling race to be held amongst the mem- bers of the Swan River Club is also a powerful in...

TURF TATTLE. Canning1 Park meeting snffered from the snn last Saturday week. The heat was far too great to J allow of either first-class racing or a first-rate attendance.

THAT IVANHOE VENTURE SYNDICATE JOB. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

THAT IVANHOE VENTURE SYNDICATE JOB. Mr. Vosper, speaking recently on the Ivanhoe Venture case, as- serted that the Hon. George Throssell was a director of the syndicate. Since then, Mr. Vosper has ascertained that Mr. Throssell sold his interest and resigned all connection with the syndicate some time before the present dis- pute arose. Mr. Vosper has there- fore requested os to make this correction public. Upwards of 79,000,000 of Messrs. Robert Dixson and Co.'s No. 1 cigarettes were sold during the year 1897 in New South Wales, Queensland, South Aus- tralia, and West Australia. This is a most remarkable proof of the popularity of the firm's manufactures, and when it is remembered that the adult male population of the four colonies men- tioned is not much over half a million, it is seen that the figures show, that » single firm supply on the average at least eighteen packets a year to every one of them. As a matter of fact, Messrs. Dixson and Company's sales of cigarettes in these ...

A SCANDALOUS JOB. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

Ä*£GANDALOUS JOB. «Tust now in the Railway De- partment, where many a dirty-job has been worked before, an un- usually flagrant swindle is being worked on what its perpetrators fondly hoped would be secret. The departmental traer for stationery and printing for the year amonóte to about £6,000, and, of course, tenders should be called and schedules prepared for tenderer's - uses, and the lowest tender should be accepted. This is what should be done. What is being done is that one set - of schedules and one only is being made out for the use of one par- ticular Eastern firm. All other minters and stationers will conse- . sjequently have no chance of ten- dering, and the firm in question ? will get the great order at its own. prices. And the oddest part of the business is that the actual head of this firm so angered the Perth City Council by malign- ing this colonv in the Eastern press as to make that far from estimable body refuse to give him and his parties any work what- ever.

A BUSH TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

A BUSH TRAGEDY. The sun rises, a glowing ball of fire in a shadeless sky. No twittering of birds, carrolling tbeir orisons to the com in«: day, breaks the spell of the past night's silence. Over head the azure dome of heaven ; under foot a barren floor of tawny sand, while to all points of the compass stretches the endless wilderness of sun-burned scrub and parched plain. It is the midst of the West Aus- tralian desert-arid, waterless, and God-forgotten. Not a breath disturbs the super-heated air that, like a pall, has hung all through the. night over the caked and cracking soil. In the forefront of the view stands a gnarled mulga tree, twisted and con- torted in its struggle with harsh Nature. It is somewhat larger than its neighbours, and its attenuated leaves throw the pretence, of a shadow over the huddled shape at its base. It is the shape of a human being, a man in rough garb such as diggers wear. His back rests against the tree trunk, his knees are drawn up and support the cr...

Mt\i&t% attîr (griisoößs. (BY SCAPIN.) " As on trna wbiriigïg of tim* We circle with the seasons." Do we ever folly appreciate the -celerity, the assiduity, and the in- describable perfection of the work done for us-by our matchless civil service ?

LOCAL YACHTING. No. IV. FORMS OF HANDICAPPING. [Specially Written for the SUNDAY TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

LOCAL YACHTING. ' :' \ No. IV. FORMS OF HANDICAPPING. Br GABBOARD STRAKE. [Specially Written for the SUNDAY TIMES.] Tn all parts of the world just now the main question among yachtsmen is the handicapping: It is found after years of experi- ence that the difference in length cannot be made up by time allow- ance. American yachtsman gene- rally have decided to abolish the handicapping altogether, and are now racing under the old rule again of water-line length. The, boats must also be measured with crew on board, and are registered and given a certificate. The amount of sail area is not restricted ia any way. It is found by this rule that more weatherly boats are built, and that to restrict sail area, means a tax on skill and brains. I am greatly in favour of this rnle, in this way, that if a great ovet - hang is put on a small boat and the boat, with crew on board, mea snred, the water-line must be in- creased by immersion. I do not advocate a plumb stem and stern, as I don't think ...

PEDESTRIANISM Feds, are at last beinggiven some inducements to train. The St Patrick's Day sports committee have included in their programme, amongst others, a £35 handicap. Many of the leading rnnners in the colony, some of whom can compare with any in Australia, willise competitors. The amateur men are being given some encouragement, for on St Patrick's Day they will be ?given an opportunity to display their capabilities, a couple of han- dicaps for their special benefit having been included in the pro- gramme. There are two Harrier Clubs in the colony, one at Fremantle and thepother at Perth. The members of hoth should show their appreci- ation of the enterprise of the com- mittee running the sports by entering for the events. The innovations introduced by the St. Patrick's Day sports com- mittee cannot but be conducive to the furtherance of athletics gener- ally.

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN g>imí>ag ditties SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1808: ASSIGNED SLAVES. BLACK LABOUR ON OUR GOLD MINES THE LATEST INVASION. Is THESE A CONSPIRACY? The latest development of the systematic attacks now being made bj tx certain cliqne npon the in- terests of the working miners is the employment of aborigines in the gold mines of the colony. This new invasion of the industries of the white man is taking place in Pil . barra-within the confines of that Black North which is specially exempted also from the operations of the Undesirable Immigrants Restriction Act. Up there, it seems, employers of labour are not satisfied with employing Chinese cooks and Malay and Japanese servants, to say nothing of the hordes of black and tan heathen engaged in every occupation, honest* or infamous. THE BLACK NATIVE of the soil must now be enslaved and made to labour in the mines. Our attention has been drawn to this new danger by a letter sent to Mr. E. F. Edgecumbe, of this city, from a g...
