THE POWERS ALREADY POSSESSED BY THE MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 February 1898

THE POWERS ALREADY POS- SESSED BY THE MINISTER. In view of tb'* very doubtful legality of the action of the Cabinet, it may be thought that it would have done well to Bee, before taking such action, what powers the Minister of Mines already possessed, which he could exert for the protection of the down-trodden lease- holder. To anyone except a Minister or a stockbroker they seem ample enough. Thus in section 33 of the Goldfields Act we find the fol- lowing:-"The undermentioned lands shall be exempted from lease under the aforesaid powers-that is to say, lands which consist exclu- sively of alluvial, excepting such as, in the opinion of the Minister 1. Has already been worked and aban- doned; or 2. Is suitable for leasing on account of its great depth or excessive wetness, or on account of the costliness of the appliances required for its pro- fitable development ; or 3. Which, for other special reasons, ought not io be exempted from lease. Surely, this clause alone should confer on ...

Horniraau, and J. B. McDermot, the latter stating that in view of the record that New South Wales had in eight oar races with the other colonies, they would not be justi- fied in asking the public to sup- port a New South Wales crew going to England, and it was de- cid...

[?]hoes and [?]pisodes. "As on this whirligig og time We circle with the seasons." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

(ßdjofs auö (Bpisoîrrs. (BY SCAPIN.) " As on thia whirligig] of time We circle with the seasons." That it is not always wise to take the fallest advantage of your opportunities is shown to admira- tion in the simple narrative which follows. A certain theatrical manager, representing the most experienced, energetic and enter- prising of entrepreneurs, found himself in a goldfields city a' day or two ago, and straightway began to look about him for a hall. His exhibition required electric light, which the town plant could not supply, so he took the only hall near enough to the house of a private friend, who could spare him the required current. At the moment he could not tell the exact nights when he would require the hall, as he could not guage the - length of stay he might make in a contiguous city, where his com- pany had not yet appeared. But the secretary of the Hall offered to pencil off the three nights he want- ed, and did so, on the understand- ing that the manager's represen...

TO-DAY'S MATCHES. ENGLAND v. AUSTRALIA. FINAL TEST MATCH. A LARGE CROWD. (Bv OUR SPECIAL REPOBTEK.) SYDNEY, ÍÍATÜROAY. The fifth test match was com- menced on the Association Ground this morning in the presence of a large number of lovers of the game. Notwithstanding the fact that Australia's representatives, bj their three consecutive and decisive wins, had won the rubber, hundreds visited the ground in the hope that the Englishmen would show something like the form exhibited by them in the opening game. Stoddart and Board stood ont of the English team, and Worraïl took the place of Iredale in the home eleven. The spin of the cain, owing no doubt to the fact that Stoddart had nothing to do with it, favoured M'Laren, and the Englishmen went in to bat on a first-class wicket : ENGLAND. First innings.

YACHTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

YACHTING NOTES. The handlea p sailing race held by the Perth Plying Squadron was sailed on the river last Satnrday afternoon. The handicaps were framed on the lines of the three different stages of a breeze "blow? ing, and the officials selected for that purpose decided that a light breeze was blowing, so the follow ing were the handicaps decided upon :-Pivot, 17min.; Iris, 16min.; Aurora, 15min.; Empress, 14min.; Ionic, I4min ; Ventura, 13min.; Inez, 10min.; Hinemoa, 8 min.; Olinda, scratch. . The course sailed over was from Mill Point to Crawley Buoy, thence to Eastern Hump Buoy, round Crawley to Mill Point, thence back to Crawley and home to Mill Point. A very pretty race was the result, with the Olinda passing the judge first, Ventura second, Hinemoa third ; but after deduct- ing the handicaps victory rested with the Ventura, with 3|min. to spare ; Olinda (scratch) second, and Hinemoa third. Thus Mr. Lyall Hall's trophy becomes the property^of the popular skipper of the Ventura,...

PARASITES OF SOCIETY. No. 1.—THE COMMON INFORMER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

PARASITES OF SOCIETY, j - i No. 1.-THE COMMON INFORMER. Every honest citizen is morally and legally boa nd to help good government by informing the authorities of any serious offence that may come under his notice. He is also bound, if called upon, to tad the guardians of the peace to detain and apprehend criminals, or to suppress any resistance to the execution of their duty, and he is clearly entitled to demand and receive compensation for any damage or loss he may sustain in the service of the State. All this may be granted.- Thus far a citizen of repute may go, and no man dare hold him up to con- tempt by the nse of that notable reproach, the epithet " informer," which invariably means in addition spy, sneak and liar, and very frequently means perjurer and inciter to crime into the bargain. Wherever the common informer flourishes the offences he makes it his business to discover necessarily multiply. This is a necessary consequence of his bare existence. Take any of the cases of...
