THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 27 1898. EARLY CLOSING AT FREMANTLE. [With best wishes to the Early Closing Assocation.] [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN ^uttdctg Climes. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY^, iSç8. EARLY CLOSING AT FREMANTLE. [ With best wishes to the Early Closing Assocation.J * Britons never shall be slaves ' wrote James Thomson a hnndi-ed and seventy years ago, to the deathless music which stirs all our hearts at a patriotic concert or a grand review. * Britons never shall be slaves,' bot many of us Britons-Australian born, bnt Britoiis in light of oar descent from British sires, of our allegiance the British Em pi te and onr in- heritance of the British flag, are, not withstand i ag, slaves beyond all manner, of doubt. Notdirectly, -ob, dear n«i. We caunot say with Byron, **Onr tyrants are our countrymen." Our tyrants are the odonrons and odious Chinese, the pestilential Hindoo, the frowsy and filthy Afghan, and the in- triguing Japanese. * # * These brutes are they who keep houses open to all-comers for ever, and they it is who curtail -every opportunity of innocent in- dulgence. A law may provide that all shop...

DEATH IN THE MILK-JUG. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

DEATH IN THE MILK-JUG. - _ ' I Thanks to the indolence and incapacity of the Government, and the lack of courage and persever- ance on the part of the City Coun- cil; Perth is again suffering from its annual plagues of typhoid and diphtheria, both of which have appeared in an aggravated form. Some of the causes of the epidemic are beyond immediate control ; snch as the pollution of the water supply, which has been certified to by competent analysts, and the pollution of the air by foul gases arising from the hideous lack of proper drainage and of any ap- proach to scientific sanitation. To remedy these would require an expenditure which the Govern- ment, thanks to the inextricable muddle in which it has placed the public finances, is unable to sanction. But we could palliate the evil by the adoption of a few ordinary precautions. For ex- ample, the air of the city is being poisoned daily by the open rubbish carts which perambulate it in broad * daylight, and give off all kinds of mu...

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

HARRIERS. (BY " TRACKER.") The Harrier season will soon be upon ns again, and I am pleased to hear most encouraging reports re the formation of new clnbs in various districts. Midland Jonc- tion, Coolgardie and Cottesloe are certainties, and no doubt several other towns will follow snit.. An association of course will then be necessary, the advent of which will be hailed with delight by all lovers of harrier is m. # # * There is no doubt the game has come to stay in this colony, and with a properly managed associa- tion to direct affairs I see no reason why the sport should nol boom. * * # As a means of recreation cross- country running is in the first flight, while for put« fun and frolic it has no equal. The com- bined run of the Perth and Fre- mantle Clubs over some of the Midland Junction country last year was worth going miles to join. That district comparing very favor- ably with the best procurable in the Eastern colonies. * # # The two events set down for de- cision on the S...

I heard of Jim's aspirât'o >* after tb higher life, and when I ' -.ally nu him a day or two after this conversatioi I was surprised to find him alone an unhappy. " Why so pale and wan, fond lover ? He looked at me vacantly, and spa in the roadway. " It wouldn't a-bin s bad if it a-bin a blue marine/' be said " but a red marine !" " Why, Jim, what is it ?" !

THE MANLY HEART. I. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

THE MANLY HEART. BY W. F. SHANNON. O, my love, my love is young. "Where y'bin this two nights, Jim ?" asked a bluejacket of his messmate, Twelves. " Iii love, my young friend." " No, Jim ; not that." '* Alas, yea, Malachi. No more will you observe me at the ' Antigalliean.' Fm born agin, and all on for. ginger beer." " This is very sudden, Jim. Are you positive certain you ain't labourin' under a delusion? Spread ont your proofs ; expatriate your reasons." "Behold, Malachi, I found myself one forenoon, very earlv, strikin' me pipe agin the wall and suckin' me match- box-" " Pve knowed you to do similar things in the evenin' very late, Jim. But you wasn't in love then." " No ; I've thought about that. There is a certain simultaneousness between the reflects of too much whisky on a man and love in its early stages." " Love in its very early stages that must be Jim. But you'll recover from that in a day or two. It's like an in- fluential cold, exasperatin' and over whelmin' while it la...

AMONG THE JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

AMONG THE JUNIORS. As I anticipated some time ago, the clubs in the First Junior As- sociation have now com men sed to move up and down. Last Satur- day saw a further shuffling of the pack. First and foremost comes the fine victory of East Perth over Austral "A,*' when it was all Lom bard-street to a China orange that the Australs would win. J. R. Davis, the old West Perth bat, played a grand innings of 125 not out, and thus saved the situation almost single-handed. He never gave a chance, and I heartily con- gratulate him on the best batting performance yet seen in junior cricket here. Both he and Morgan of the Wests should, however, be playing on the turf. Their claims are infinitely better than half the so-called senior players. Guildford revenged themselves for their de- feat by East Perth, by taking down the hitherto unbeaten Engineers ; and the Post and Telegraphs, Leederville, West Perth, Subiaco, Karrakatta " B," and Austral " B " all went up a point-the sandy suburb winning...

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

NOTES. Now that the Sheffield Shield has gone to Melbourne again for at least one year, interest in the game is slack. It will be galvan- ised into life by the last Test Match, not before. Locally, the Platt-Betts meeting on the W.AC-A. ground caused a tem- porary " slump'' in the cricket world, which was added to by the abandonment of their game with East Fremantle by the poor, para- lysed Perth Club. However, next Saturday (26th) starts a new round in the First Junior Compe- tition, and will see the completion of the Karrakatta-Austral and Me ts. - Fremantle matches. * * * Practice goes on fairly well dur- ing the week, the Karrakatta as usual making a good show. By the way, I hope you will all notice how my remarks as to organisation . compelling success are. being proved up to the hilt Which are the best managed and best captained clubs ? The Karrakatta in Perth and the East Fremantles at the Port unde- niably. And they are top easily. Verb. sap.-but, alas ! 1 fear some of the c...

NOTES FROM THE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

NOTES FROM THE PORT. ! Cricket is very quiet just now, as there is no Senior match on Saturday next, the ground being once again taken up by the cycliste. " Billy" Back was practising at the Fremantle nets on Monday. He looks very well ; but, oh Î so stout. He is full of the Test Matches and of the things he saw on the other side. He tells me that the smoke was so thick in the Melbourne Test Match that at times one couldn't see the batsmen, and you didn't know where the ball was until you saw a fieldsman, or his shadow, make a dart at something. Fancy cricket under such circumstances ! "Hodgy" played a very good in- nings for the "Stragglers" last Saturday. If practice makes per- fect, " Hodgy " ought to be about the best cricketer in W.A. in a couple of years. It's a wonder we have any cricket at Fremantle at all, con- sidering the way things are carried on by the council. One can't blame them for getting as much money as they can for the Oval, but why can't they lay down a j coupl...

COLONIAL TRUSTEE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

COLONIAL TRUSTEE STOCK. Assuming that the colonial Govern- ments would like to bring about the inclusion of their inscribed and regis- tered stocks in the list of securities eligible for investment by trustees, it may not be out of place to propose in some detail a scheme which would be at once feasible, and likely to be ac- cepted by the House of Commons as affording all that can be required in the matter of safety. That the time is now ripe for a new proposal will be conceded by everyoaé-certainly by the whole body of trustees who are at their wits' end to find suitable investments which show a yield of even 2 7-8 or 2f per cent. There is a prejudice in many quarters against Indian stocks and Indian guaranteed railways, from which alone anything like 3 per cent, is now obtainable. Yet while embar- rassed India is admitted in the trust investment fold, a prosperous Crown colony like Ceylon is left outside. The groundwork of a scheme under which every colony would be included in a n...

CYCLING. PLATT-BETTS V. RECORDS. COLLAPSE OF THE LATTER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898

CYCLING. i»LATT-BETTS V. RECORDS. COLLAPSE OP THE LATTER. The appearance of the natty little Englishman of world-wide fame in wheeling circles had the effect of drawing a great crowd to the Fremantle Oval yesterday afternoon. Delightful weather prevailed, and the afternoon sport was most enjoyable. Betts rode magnificently, and the easy run- ning surface and the calmness of the day assisted him materially in his record-breaking attempts. Although the field was small in the scratch event, the race was full, of interest, and caused consider- able excitement. Following are the results . HALF-MTLE HANDICAP. First Heat. W.
