THE MINISTER OF MINES AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898
THE MINISTER OF MINES AGAIN. It will be seen bj the letter printed below that the Minister of Mines has been once more exposed in those peculiarly degrading and discreditable acts of political trickery which make his official career the precise model of every- thing which a public man should avoid. The North-East Coolgardie constituency has on varions occa- sions applied through its repre- sentative for such shaies of the public revenue as it was entitled to obtain, and the moneys so asked for have been promised, after the due and proper amonnt of Minis- terial chaffering But when the time came for paying these sub- sidies over to the persons in- terested the cash was never forthcoming, and when, after long delay it was sent, it was forwarded tbrou»li the member for thc pro- vince instead of the member for the electorate, wi»h thc evident intention of imbuing the electors with the idea that their member's unpopularity with the Minister of Mines was prejudicial to the r in- terests. ...

WITH THE ACTING-TREASURER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898
WITH THE ACTING-TREASURER. " Is the Acting Premier engaged ?" " Tés ; a great deal too busy to talk to you newspaper fellows." "Don't be uncivil. Eememberyou are a public servant and weare the public's real representatives. We have only one question to ask, but it is important. Why do you belittle the colony by leaving its creditors unpaid ?" " What do you mean ?" " We mean that yon keep your un- fortunate tradespeople waiting week after week for their lawful money. They pay for material and foi* tiie wages . to have it made np,. and you take their goods and break their hearts with worry and anxiety. We know of small tradesmen whose payments have been delayed for many months, of debts that ought to be measured by tens-of pounds'left to run up to hundreds, and of small «rants that have remained unpaid'until they were useless when they did come tardily to hand." - " Dash your impertinence.

Certs atór Retorts. " The story of Cambuscan bold." FROM A POETICAL T'OTHEKSIDEK. " rhis is the forest primeval/' wrote Longfellow years ago. Little deeming 'twould furnish me matter for jest, But, you see, he didn't know W. A. Nor the reading that we have adopted to-day, When we wish to express the true cause of our w e. We simply transpose the two last words'-and so We get-" This is the prime evil - Porjjest!" * # * It is a cut-Lous thing that the Ifiss of the Maine^ instead of en- couraging the jingoes in the United States to howl more loudiy for war with Spain should have knocked them sideways, endways, and all ways. But it bas done su. They see that even the loss of this one "ship-not a very big or powerful one either-'-has seriously weak ened their navy, and that if their warships come to such grief in peace they might quickly vanish altogether if hostilities were began with Spain, whose fleet is by no means despicable. They need also to talk fight to England, bat now _Î . . *...

Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898
Tbe change in the weather has had a great deal to do with the scanty attendance of the public at the baths. On Sunday last the baths were well patronised, but on other days there are but a few bathers. # # * The City Council is about to frame rules and regulations, and in a few weeks' time tenders are to be called for Ieasiug the baths. In the bands of afirst-class roan, who woulfl organise a swimming club, and cater for many who prefer thai mode of amusement, I believe that it only wants one or two to begin, whenit would go ahead, but so. far these energetic persons who cpu Id manage it do not come forward. * » x * The Interclub Flying Squadron Teams' Challenge Race of New South Wales was brought off at the Rockdale SwimmingClub'sCar nival, held at the.
