gram §aj to gaj. . Mr. Vosper was right, after all, when he al laded to the Hon. George Throssell as one of the directors of the Ivanhoe Venture. Mr. Throssell was on the list of directors and shareholders ap to Saturday of last week. * # * At thc same time the facts as now revealed reflect no discredit upon Mr. Throssell. As far back as June last he disposed of his shares to Mr. Moran, and requested that gentleman to see that his name was taken off the register. This request was not complied with, and without Mr. Throssell's knowledge, and against his will, his name was continued as one of the directorate. This neglect does not place the syndicate in too favourable a light, bnt it com- pletely vindicates Mr. Vosper from the charges of misrepresentation. It also shows that Mr. Throssell was in no way mixed up in the peculiar transactions of this com- pany. * * # Mr. Vosper's vindication of Mr. Throssell was prompted by the latter gentleman's assertion that he has sold out of .the sy...
WITH MR. GEORGE PARKER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
WITH ME. GEORGE PARKER. " Br-r-r-rup ! B-r-rup !" " Hullo !" "Hullo! Who's that?" "SUNDAY TIMES. Is Mr. George Parker there ?" " Yes. Wa.Tigf on a minute please." " Hullo ! Who's speaking ?" "SUNDAY TIMES. Are you going down to practice on the Association Ground next Monday ?" " Tes. Why ?" " Because if you don't the bore might stop flowing. Besides, you ought to shout a tiddley for ' Joe ' Fountain. He has a biç contract on to carry all your instructions in his head." "How's that ?" "WeU, figure it out yourself. Six days equal one working week. One visit per day equals ten separate, dis- tinct, and individual instructions to Fountain, and 60 instructions per week, even from you, are more than the aver- age man can carry out. See?" " Oh !" " How about your club ?" "The M.C.C.?" " No ; the Perth Club. Do you really think it ought to be playing senior cricket while East Perth and Guildford are relegated to junior ranks ?" " Certainly. Look at our men ?" "Oh, hang your men! We look at ...
Chenings from home. 'Leavs off your damnable faces, and begin.' [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
täiretthttjs Jrffiît Hon«. (BY THE OLD PIAYGOER.) ' Lear« off your damnable faces, and begin.* So far the Cremorne season of Mr. Harry Rickards' company has been one continuous triumph. If one night the house has been a little less, and auother night a little larger, the fact has not been due to any lack of po bl ic apprecia- tion, bnt merely to the abnormally variable weather. Beauty de- clines to go ont into the cold if her garments are summery, and her reasons are - summary. They are summed up in two words, " I won't." Not even the presence and pleadings of Beauty's best boy move her unless indeed she has plently of sables and sealskins. In such a case Beauty lords it over her lowlier sisters and sweeps by en princesse. When Beauty has not sealskins and sables to show in chilly weather she sits sulks and sighs and sobs, and says how much happier is Miss Jones who has proper 'things' and can " go anywhere. " # # * I strongly suspect that the artists who to a woman insists that app...

TURF TATTLE. A tip for thè Newmarket Han- dicap was locally advertised by a certain religious sect, thus : "How AMIABLE are thy dwel- lings." Whether it was worth anything or not, will be known by the. time these lines appear in \ print. * * * The snide bookie's version of tr He that bets and runs away, When he loses, need not pay ! * * * Kanowna, when it gets time to turn from the alluvial question and the last speech of its curled darling, F. C. B. Vosper (of the other ilk), means to have a high' old time on March 8. The Ka- nowna Race Club has put out an attractive programme, and -should secure a first rate attend- ance. The Kanowna Handicap should bring out a good field for that one and a half-mile event, as the prize amounts to £150., Other races are : Hurdles, 2 miles, £50. Trial Stakes, 6 furlongs, £30.

IV. Anemones, windflowers. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
rr. Anemones, windflowers. Some weeks afterwards I met Jim in the main street of Pompey, whole and sound. "Come wid us," Lo commanded, and then dragged me along with him. "You're off the list then, Jim ?" " Yes. So's the marine. There he is. look!" I looked ahead and saw the red marine hurrying alon? with Anemone. " What's in the wind, Jim ?" said I. " Cuttin'-out expedition. I'm the rareguard." " TB Malachi in advance ?" "No. He wouldn't take a deal in this. He's very changeable. Now you know yourself how he was dead agin my marryin', don't-ye ? " " He certainly was." " Very well then, you'd think he'd be glad now it's the red marine and not me. But do, he's still dissatisfied ; and when I proposed for him to help in this abduction he busted off into the most outrageous langwidge about marines. Why, they're the most magnificent corps that ever was, all globes and laurels and glory." "'No.'says he; Til help any blue- jacket to abduct, but a red marine can cussed well do his own abdu...
III. But my kisses bring again, bring again. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
ni. But my kisses bring again, bring again. I went to see Jim at Haslar in a day or two, and found him swathed in cot- ton-wool, as was the marine, a few beds away. " My'ated rival" said Jim cheerfully nodding towards him. "But Fm scratched," he added, with a touch of melancholy, " I ain't in the runnm.'." " But the marine was shut out too, so she won't have either of you," I said. " You're in error. She'd have both of us if the law was wid her. And she cries all day long because her par won't let her have even one of us. He says he's off warlike men. But she herself is dead nuts on them sort of men. Still, she've wrote t-» say she loves the red marine best out of us two. Marines is always favoured, and bluejackets is always left. Never mind, there's Other gels." " Yes, of course," I began, and was about to quote a stale proverb. Jim saw it coming, and fiercely interjected z " But noue like her, so don't you com- mit yourself. I don't mind philo sophiMn', on myself, but I shan't be ...
SECOND JUNOORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
SECOND JTJNIOBS. Following axe the respective positions to date occupied by the clubs playing in the Second Junior Association : Club or Teams. Telephone Shenton Park East Ferfi Claremont JSndeavour Sands & MacDougall Karrakatta D. and W. Murray Guildford Smith's Mill The fast and favourite excursion steamer Eleanor (Captain Alex. Reid) was crowded again last Sunday on her run to Rottnest, and it is evident that this boat is a popular one with the holiday-seeking public. A launch landed passengers on the Government jetty at the Island, tims avoiding a long walk round the beach from the usual landing stage. An excellent programme of music by the band and some local singers was given on board, and a really enjoyable day was the consequence. The catering by Mr. Jacobs was, as usual- first-class, and cannot be surpassed. To-day (Sunday) the Eleanor makes another excursion to Rottnest, leaving River Wharf, Fre- mantle, about 10.45 a.m. The usual arrangements for landing passenger...
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [BY "FORTIS."] The wheeling world during the past week has been exceedingly active, the presence and perform- ances of the unassuming little Englishman, 5. Platt-Betts, being responsible. That he has come np lo expectations will not be de- nied, and wheelmen and public alike vote him to be a. perfect marvel as a pace-follower. # * # The only regret is that the pace making was of such a nature as to militate against any idea being gained of the capabilities of the record-breaking. That which was provided, though it took him well within the records, did not seem to extend him in the slightest de- gree. # * # Thecarnival amply demonstrates enefact-that the public must have something out of the common to induce them to patronise the sport. What a contrast to that which prevailed only a couple of years ago ! Then the mere mention of a bicycle race drew a crowd, but the sport at that time was either free from objectionable practices or the public had not been...

The difficulty will never be got over until the Association appoints decent men.
Roming. Take your time from me, boys. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
(By "STROKE") Take your time from me, boys. The Combination Four-oared Races to be held to-day (Saturday promise to provide an afternoon outing of more than ordinary in- terest, these being the first of their kind attempted in Perth. Should a fair amount of success attend the present efforts of the origination of the West Austra- lian Club, no doubt the other club will soon hold similar races. So far, the outlook is that nine or 10 crews will be found competing principally from the Swan River and West Australian Clubs, per- haps helped by a few entries from the Fremantle Club. * # # The first heats are timed to start at 3 o'clock sharp, and as the course will be a short one-barely 1/4 of a mile- excellent time should be the result of despatching the crews on their journey. Captain Wilkinson and Secretaries Muir and Carr have the arrangements in hand, and everything should result very satisfactorily. * * * It is very gratifying to find that the collapse of the Fremantle Row- ing Club...
Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
One matter that the authorities of oar baths shonld see about at once is that marks showing the depths of water shonld be pnt np, so that bathers can plainly see into how mauy feet of mad and water they are diving. Dur- ing the week a visitor met with an accident that might have had very serious results hy diving into shallow water. Rather extensive damage was done to his head and face, and judging from the bleed- ing serious abrasions and cuts fell to his share. Many deaths and accidents have happened in varions places through bathers diving un- consciously into shallow water, and a few post?, properly marked, would prevent anything of that sort. * * # The water police on duty at oar new bathing establishment appear to be having a busy time in taking the names and summoning un- fortunate bathers who are caught without costume, but the magis- trate, to my mind, very wisely re- fuses to fine them when brought before him, until regulations are made and posted up in conspicuous places ...
CONCERNING THE CORONER. To the Editor of the SUNDAY TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 February 1898
CONCERNING THE CORONER. To the Editor of the SUNDAY TIMES. Sir,-You have conferred a benefit on this community by pricking the bubble contained in that over-inflated, official mud-bag the coroner; but although you have given him what Frank Thorn- ton, iu the *'Private Secretary," calls "a good, hard knock," you have not been nearly so severe as the occasion deserves. In connection with bis autocratic behaviour as a coroner, I would like to call attention to the in- famous Marloo case. He summed up strongly in favonr of a verdict of manslaughter .- against the steward. The jury acquitted the steward, but returned a verdict against the captain. Thereupon, he was formally asked by the prosecuting attorney in open court to issue a warrant in accord- ance with the jury's finding. This he declined to do, but let it be openly seen that he would have issued such a writ willingly bad the jury's verdict been in accord- ance with his attempted dictation. The law may condone his refusal, bnt I ...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. INo. 10.] _ j To THE EIGHT REVEREND MATTHEW &nbsp; GIBNEY, D.D., BISHOP OF &nbsp; PERTH. &nbsp; MY LORD, After the trouble and turmoil of the past fortnight, during which invective and abuse became almost the staple of every-day conversa- tion, and everyone who knew nothing about the alluvial question felt himself called upon to com- municate his ignorance to ' tibe public, it is indeed refreshing to find myself able to address one of the few public men possessed by Western Australia of whom no evil can be spoken. 000 &nbsp; &nbsp; I amnot a member of the great &nbsp; and historic Church over which your lordship so ably locally pre- sides ; but as a student of history and one fairly well acquainted with contemporary facts, I should be a hypocrite, a bigot, or worse, did I not acknowledge frankly the great good which its mighty organisation has accomplished in the past, and is still carrying oír in the mids...
LATEST WHEELING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898
LATEST WHEELING NOTES. The League of Wheelmen offi- cials are conti ii tiing their endea- vour« to stamp ont nefarious practices amongst racing men. On Friday G. D. Stotter and J. Ver noD, two of the leading wheelmen in the colony, were sent down for a term of six months each. * . * * Their offence, of which the League here found them guilty, was collusion in the ten miles scratch race at Fremantle on Feb- ruary 26. Stotter firmly protests his innocence, and. with Vernon, has appealed against the sentence. This will be hetírd at the meeting of the couucil to be held on Wed- nesday evening next. * # * In addition to the time of dis- qualification imposed on them, Stotter and Vernon will have to for- feit the prize money due to them for first and third places respec- tively in the ten miles race. j # - # * The League officials have asked ¡ the late secretary to furnish them with a list of fines inflicted and appeal fees received during his term of office before Tuesday next, the 6th i...
[?]ennel and [?]ield. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898
fieimel atti* Jficíir. (Br TERRIER.) There is now in the city an ordinary fox-terrier dog- which would give Leoni Clarke's per- forming cats a lead. He is the property of Mr. J. Green, and a few days ago his performances en- gaged the attention of an admiring crowd in the Terrace. He fearlessly leaped from a window in the first storey of Prince's Buildings into the arms of his owner. He will walk up a ladder placed against a wall to a height of twenty feet, turn over one of the rungs and jump to erra firma. Walking along the street with the dog in dog in flout of him, Mr. Green dropped his handkerchief, »nd traversing a block informed the dt»g of -the fact. " Jack," imme- diately troted off to look for it and brought it back safely. A wax match projecting from betweeu the joint of au ordinary box acts as a handle for thc dog when picking it up, and carrying it to his master. 41 Jack " ft!*olled about uncon- cernedly on his hind, legs in com- pany with his owner, and perfor- med sund...
BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898
BOXING. A contest will take place at the Old Englyshe Fayre, Hay-street, Perth, on Saturday next, the 12th inst., between Jem Davis and -Mick McCarthy, both unbeaten men of great reputation. McCarthy has ' fought several important fights in America. An additional boxing programme has been ar- ranged, and will begin at 8 o'clock. The principals will enter the ring at 9 precisely. The particulars appear in our advertisement column on page 5. Don Walker intended visiting Kew Zealand, and was on his way there when he lowered the world's record, it is now improbable that he will visit Maoriland. The largest consignment of Turkey, bath, and other sponges ever received n the colony has been landed, opened up, and distributed by the W.A. Apothecaries' Company among its various establishments.

SAURIERS* (BY "TRACKEB") The entries for St. Patrick's Day events did not close till 7 o'clock last night.

He is being well cared for at the private hospital, Mandaran road. .\ i,. -
