NOTICE. Owing to an enormous and unexpected %. Pressure upon our Space We are reluctantly compelled to hold over LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN No. 10, TO THE RT. REV. MATTHEW GIBNEY, D.D., BISHOP OF PERTH, Until next issue. One of the latest improvements at the Osborne Hotel is the electric light on the tower, but we question very much if it is a judicious one. When the winter comes on, and rain and foggy weather set in, this light might prove disastrous to any ship which may be i abreast of Cottesloe Beach and near in shore. In foggy weather along the English coast the coastguard are steadily on the lookout for nusleading lights, and should a thoughtless person forget to draw the blind down after lighting the lamp one of this body is despatched immediately to see that the window is covered. A well-known cap- tain, and one thoroughly acquainted i with the coast of this colony, has ex- \ pressed the opinion that the Osborne i light was dangerous to mariners, and : may eventually prove disast...

Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

It is a very fortunate thing that the new baths were able to be used during the very hot weather experienced some days ago, and the crowds of both sexes who have visited them prove that a public need has been satisfied. As far as bathing accommodation is con- cerned, the pity is that the council did not spend a few more pounds and have the basin cleaned out of the accumulated mud now lying there, as well as adding a few more feet to its depth. Many expres- sions of disgust have been heard on ali sides as to the filthy and dirty state of the water, and some means should be found to prevent the filth of the river from being cast into the public baths. Pro- bably, if the baths are leased to some energetic man, who under- stands his business, many improve- ments would be made * * # Already the light-finger gentry have started their little capers upon the property of the bathers. Fortunately one thief was caught and handed over to the arms of a sturdy policeman ; but to my mind persons g...

YACHTING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

YACHTING NOTES One of the most active and go ahead institutions is the Fresh- water Bay Boating Club, whose headquarters are at Claremont, and whose ranks for so yoting a club are encouragingly fall. TJp to the present its members' roll nambers between 90 and LOO, and there is no reason why before long that that number should not be largely increased. | * * * , -J They have done a very wise thing in going to work and build- ing their own jetty, without ap- proaching the Government and asking for help. Now they have called for tenders for the purpose of building a slip, so that their yachts may be easily overhauled. As Claremont must go ahead in the fut ire, the Freshwater Bay Club will soon be à formidable rival to the older clubs of Perth. # * * The Perth Flying Squadron is determined to make the club a very much alive concern. The com- mittee appointed to canvas for trophies has met with gratifying encouragement, and many trophies have been promised for competi- tion. Next Saturda...

MASTER OF THE POPOLAR STEAMER ELEANOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

CAPTAIN ALEXANDER REID, MASTER OF THE POPOLAR STEAMER ELEANGU. Captain Seid, whose photo (taken by L. Gray, Williams, and Co., Fremantle) we produce in this issue, is well known by the majority of the travelling public, and more so by those who have had the pleasure of a trip on his boat to the islands, with whom he has become very popular. Cap- tain Reid was for years chief officer in the Adelaide Steamship. Co.'s fleet, and was more recently- wharfinger for that company in Melbourn«:, until he was appointed to his present position in W.A. Since his arrival in this colony he has been very successful in towing and shipping work in general, and only recently he rescued the steamer Scot- tish Hero, for which, with ma y other actions, he will be long remembered. In our columns will be seen Mr. G. Parrant's advertisement. Mr. Parrant is a thoroughly experienced dyer and scourer, and gentlemen wishing clothes cleaned or dyed should patronise the dye works, Wellington-street, Perth.

ALLUVIAL RIGHTS AND WRONGS. THE CASE STATED. BY F. C. B. VOSPER, M.P. [Written for.the SUKDAY TIMES.] THE SCIENTIFIC ASPECT. One of the questions most frequently heard, during the present controversy is embraced in the words, V What, is í Alluvial ?" A question ,of this kind cannot he answered without entry upon strict definitions, and these" T propose to afford in the lirsfr -placé. ' Alluvial gold, then, is all that gold which is found in washes or beds "which owe their origin to the agency of water, and which is not contained in a solid rock formation or lode bounded by denned walls or sides. In order to make this clear, it is necessary to state that lodes, veins, or reefs, as they are indifferently called, are fissures running through strata or masses of rock, which fissures have been filled'.-hy various agencies with a mass of min- eral distinct from the. surrounding masses in composition and character, but which may nevertheless owe its origin to the chemical transformation an...

Qn < the firsVpage of' the Perth Gazette of August"30, 1834, is given a fMl3 list of the colonial officers together with their salaries.'

Another world's champion has seen fit to honour Westralia with a visit, and as asna), when roused up to it, the League opens its arms and receives him right royally.

Caris wà %ÚOÚB. " The Story of Cambnscan hold." Some time apo Henry Lawson fell foul of the English critics be- cause, as they truthfully pointed out, much of his work was " rough and ready," and Randolph Bedford, another Australian who has made a name for hitnse'f in the Eastern colonies, also had a growl at them for a similar reason. As I said H few weeks ago, a man who writes iu a brimstone and treacle style must expect to he hauled over the coals, strength is not everything -rather it needs curbing. Style counts foi* a very great deal, and often puf s a man on a pedestal he would never atiain to by virtue of sheer power for writing sonoions and clashing nonsense, or slangy " back blocks " yarns composed of cattle, profanity, dust and sordid- ness. * # The false idea so many Aus- tralian "poets" are allowing to lead them away-viz., that, weak j imitations of Patterson, or lengthy chunks of Lindsay-Gordon-and water are the only wear should be strongly com batted if ever we are to ...
