In Memoriam. ALFRED ERNEST WOODLEY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 December 1897

In Memoriam. ALFRED ERNEST WOODLEY. It is with deep regret that we chronicle the death of Mr. A. E. Woodley, a gentleman who was widely known and immensely ap- preciated. Mr. Woodley was born in Greece in 1867, but went to England at an early age, and was educated at Blackheath, in Kent. After leaving school he was for some years in the service of the North German Lloyd Company. In the early part of 1893 Mr. Woodly was attracted by the famous find at Bayley's, came to the colony, and with several comrades he walked up to Coolgardie; and did a great deal of prospecting in and around that famous city Hannans. He was one of the first in the rush to Siberia, and there, with so many others, suffered great priviations. Tired of continual bad luck on the goldfields, towards the end of 1893, Mr. Woodley returned to Perth, where he joined the firm of McBean, Bowker and Co. As the firm grew, Mr. Woodley was pro- moted till, in 1895, he as senior employee, became accountant, a position he held...

Fremantle Austral. Perth ... 3 3 3* 2 2 3 3 2 1 .1 1 0 Fremantle and- Austral have still one game incomplete. The East Fremantles have, there- fore, got a good lead,, with the Karrakattas well up. Of course, it ia far too early to prophesy as to the probable winners of the -1897 1898 premiership. (By the way, why,does not .somebody come- for- ward and give a Cap or a silk   Pennant to play for, as a symbol of honour and glory ? A Cup would be more-fitting for this summery .climate). But my own idea is that the Australs or the Karrakatta will come out on top. The Austral batting is very strong: the Karra kattas are (( all-rounders" and they possess, moreover, that happy English knack of never knowing when they are beaten.

Evenings from Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

Äitiu$8 from Horn [By the Old Playgoer.] "Leave off your damnable-faces, and begin." Sacred concerts are the order of the day, and as a good many things can be included in a sacred concert, I am under the impression that there will be no lack of variety. Indeed, in a sacred concert given a few weeks ago, I was regaled with some really spicy comic songs ; a " dialogue " between two pretty young ladies in pink silk stockings; and Biographe representations of a murder, and the arrest of an inebriate who was so delightfully vinious that he attempted to kiss the policeman. * * * My readers will understand that the sacred concerts of Christmas Day, and of this evening contain no items of that sort. Handel and Haydn, Mozart and Mendelssohn, were all called in to help out the pro- grammes and Christmas carols were the special and particular gems of the evening. * * # I need not say that our carol -The Sunday Times Carol-the ¡ soecial outcome of the combined genius of my talented friends W. ...

From Day to Day. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

Jfnrat gaj to gag. Whoever is responsible for the framing of Government bills in the Assembly, is certainly not a master of his business. An apparently harmless little measure was bronght in last Monday by the Minister for Lands, the object of which was to extend the area of free homestead selection to districts unsurveyed as well as those cut up by the De- partment's surveyor. As having a tendency to promote settlement, this was to be commended ; but, unfortunately, the other portions of the original Act, which permits the holding of such an area within 40 miles of a goldfields railway, was left untouched. The seizing of lands on the fields and converting them into freeholds has hitherto been prevented by confining the right to select within defined agri- cultural areas, but the removal of this restriction would have thrown open the auriferous country to the tender mercies of the land-shark. Fortunately, Mr. Vosper saw the error, and his protest led to the Bill being withdrawn. Fan...

An Apology to the Public [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

An Apology to the Public The proprietors of the Sunday Times desire to express their sin- cere regret for a most awkward and unlooked-for occurrence in connection with the issue of the prospectus of the paper. In order to expedite matters, certain pros- pectuses were sent out, to be de- livered by hand. The messenger, a graceless and carelessyonth,instead of delivering them at their address, as instructed, simply placed them in a lump in one of the city post-boxes. The proprietors will take it as a personal favour if they are allowed the opportunity of re- pairing any expense or a noy an ce caused by this extraordinary ac- tion. By purchasing direct from the fac- tories in London, Paris, New York, Hamburg, and elsewhere, the Apothe- ¡ caries Company buy at manufacturers' ' rates, and avoid the exorbitant charges of middlemen. Hence the low rates charged by tíie Apothecaries, this company has now five establishments.

FIRST JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

FIRST JUNIORS. Two or three rather unpleasant features of junior cricket here, which strike the observer in several places at once are the de- lays in starting matches, the in competency of and consequent.dis- satisfaction with the umpires, and last, but by no means least, the .* pointing " indulged in by cer- tain clubs. The first eau and should be met by fines, and the second will, I hope, be done away with by the recent action of the Association in deciding to appoint its own umpires. It is the last mentioned and most objectionable feature upon which 1 wish to dwell. Many teams, when a game is going against them, seem to think it incumbent upon them to indulge in all kinds of sharp practices, such as sending men in late, wasting time at the wickets by shamming injury or loss of wind, and generally trying to spoil a match by bringing about an un- satisfactory draw. This conduct is most un-sportsmanlike, and de- mands immediate suppression. Then, again, those very objection- able p...

THE PARTITION OF CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

THE PARTITION OF CHINA. Apparently Germany and Russia have made up their minds to grab such portions of China as may be useful to them, and of course they will have no difficulty in carrying out their decisions. China h? in their power exactly as the whale is in the power of the swordfish. But the swordfish does not always come off on top. He gets his sword so far in that he cannot draw kout, and is consequently compelled to help to bear the carcase of the whale until he dies himself. How much profit Russia and Germany could obtain from the possession of an Empire that raises 2S. 6d. per head or £25,000,000 per annum from a population with a minimum of 400,000,000 is a matter they alone can decide. If they insist upon taking China they will have to carry China, and will find themselves like the bailiff who carried the feather bed-warm with- out profit._

GOVERNMENT ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

GOVERNMENT ADVER ' TISING. i Good people, you will all agree that this is absolutely innocuous. It accuses nobody, hits at nobody, and, of course, hurts nobody. If it introduces one damning and abso- lutely unmistakable fact which is the company paper which shammed opposition and is ruled by the brother of the head of of the Government, obtained from that particular Government twice the sum awarded to its sympathie and undisguised supporter. Here is the plain truth. It is not libellous, and it is for the public benefit that it should he told. The Premier's brother is the chief proprietor and chairman of directors of a news- paper which violently opposes the Premier's policy until the time comes for a vote. Then it advises people to vote ' against its own proclaimed policy, on the ground that though a change of policy is desirable, a change of Government would be disastrous. And when it is found that this palpable, regular and ridi- culously obvious change of front is coincident with...

FRIDAY'S CRICKET. PRESS v. PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

FRIDAY'S CRICKET. PRESS v. PARLIAMENT. Do you know what enthusiasm is ? I don't mean " that tired feeling" which prompts a man to hunt round for an easy-chair on the verandah while he wistfully yearns for a cigar, but that stern emotion which takes men out into the wilds of Perth and impels him to chase a leather covered globule over a stretch of turf while the thermometer says it is ioodeg. in the shade. Such was the feeling which animated the Talkers and the Writers, otherwise the members of our noble Parua ment and the local Pressmen. For many weary weeks the former gen- tlemen have had the latter at then mercy ; therefore, thinking the)7 had a chance of returning some of the past kindnesses of the former, the Pressmen challenged Pailiament to a cricket match. The cricket, if not of first-class order, was, at anyrate, interesting. Gregory and Gale, for Parliament, batted very freely, while Scott and Kelsey, for the scribes, were very much in evidence. In the first innings the Men...

A MOTHER'S COMPLAINT. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

A MOTHER'S COMPLAINT. (To the Editor.) Sis,-My husband is a builder, and business has been fairly brisk, while we are told every day that his wages are extortionate, enor- mous, and so on. Now, I have kept a careful account during the last year, and I find he has earned £127 16s. 6d. in all, ora trifle less than £2 10s per week. Had there been more work there would have been more money. As it was, we were thankful I am pay- ing 25s. per week for a dirty shanty of five rooms in North Perth, half an hour's walk from the city. I have an iron roof, and my ceilings are ten feet high. My walls are cover-! ed with rotten plaster, my pas- sages and floors are of unseasoned and warped wood. I have no kitchen, but merely a colonial oven in one room. The con- veniences are deplorable, composed of galvanized iron, and open to the disgusted gaze of any passer- by. The house lot is unfenced, and the water we drink is drawn from a well. It looks like stale beer and smells like a sewer. My landlord...

Correspondence. PERTH WATER SUPPLY. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

Corresjpúreitte. PERTH WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Did yon ever in your life hear a more foolish and feeble answer than that given by the Chairman of the Water Supply Board to the report of the skilled expert analysts who showed that there was typhoid germs in our drinking water. He said " If there were germs in the reservoir he did not see how they could be taken ont." This was very cheap wit. They have managed to " take them out " in Maidstone. Two tons of chloride of lime were used to flush the whole of the water pipes, a large quantity of that commodity was thrown into the reservoir, and a mud-filtering bed was made. The typhoid stopped at once. Is that which was pos- sible in Maidstone impossible in Perth ? I am, sir, etc., RECHABITE. [Quite impossible. The Maidstone folk are merely simple people confronted with unexpected danger. The Water Supply Board is chiefly composed of noisy nonentities, impervious to infec- tion themselves and long habituated to the filth of a f...

THE BENDHU CASE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

THE BENDHU CASE. As everyone who reads the papers at all has very probably carefully followed this exposure of the awful practices in vogue among the gentlemen who con- descend to squat in the Nor' West, it will be quite unnecessary for us to give even the briefest synopsis of the case. All we desire to say on the subject is to point out how literally correct the Bishop of Perth was when he informed the wcrld last year of the horrors that had reached his ears, while making an extended tour of that great, lonely, savage portion of his Diocese-where man seems to imitate the harsh, relentless aspect of nature, and to treat the hapless aborigines with the most inhuman and ferocious cruelty. And we hope that the people of Western Australia, when noting these dark doings in one of the dark places of the earth, will not fail to appreciate the manly, straightforward, and indignant re- proof of the Chief Justice to the callous, careless jury who shirked their duty, who knew that foul and hor...

The Wheeling World. FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

%\t labeling Ark FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Bv "Fortis."] Once again that moribund body, the League of W.A. Wheelmen has shelved the question of the obtain- ing of a suitable recreation ground upon which to lay down a track for the use of its members. It may seem strange to mauy ardent wheelmen to know that even in the days before the existence of the League the W.AC.C. made some spasmodic efforts in the same direction. From that time until now there has been plenty of talk and bluster but no practical suggestions made. The latest proposal is that the City Council should be asked for a lease of the Old Recreation Reserve, situated in Wellington street. Certainly, it is an admir- able ground for the purpose, but the referring of the matter from one committee to another will not secure the ground or expedite matters in the least. Mr. A. E. Farmer, who has been one of the " leading lights " in the cycling world of this colony, has been compelled, through busi- ness engagements, to ...

FASHIONS AND FANCIES. The Canning Park Racecourse, on Saturday December 18th, was not well patronised by the fair sex. In view of so many races which are to be held, no doubt the ladies are reserving them- selves and their prettiest frocks for the Christmas meetings to be held on the above course, and the New Year's races at the Perth racecourse, the event of the year, to which all lovers of the sport look forward. * * * The Franchise Bill, to which we have all been looking forward, has, sad to re- late, not been passed, so that we have still "to hide our lights behind a bushel," and remain in the background.
