THE LAST TEST MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898

THE LAST TEST MATCH. No possible doubt can exist now as io tbe superiority- of the Aus- tralians over the English Eleven. In four successive test matches they haye shownnetter form ali round .-the new blood in the shape of Howell, Noble, and McLeod being magnificently to the foiré. It was a curious coincidence that another Soutli Australian, Darling, should come to the rescue in the last match just in the nick of time, as did Clem. Hill in the fourth game. The Englishmen iii their second innings simply lost- heart when, they lost those three fine bats Maclaren, I " Ranji," and Wain- wright for 18:-runs, three ex- ponents of ; the game whose united totals often attain 400! Two features o§ the tour stand out in bold relief ^-(1.) Owing to the frequent loss of Stpddart from the field, caused through loss of form, the team got a little ont of hand at times, hence unpopularity; and (2), the Australians have put up a re- cord by winning four test matches right off theyee}. . m' '.'"»"; v ...

NOTES FROM THE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898

TffOTES FROM THE PORT. Our cricketers would like to know what has become of the Oval curator. He must surely have gone away , on a holiday-or perhaps they have got rid of him. Any- way, if there is one about he does not make his presence felt, as the wickets are simply terrible, and would disgrace a team of niggers: Npw that the turf is not available, surely some little;attention might, be bestowed^ On the practice wickets. A little water on them would be a Godsend just now. "* * . # Back, Meares, Musgrove and H. Byers were down early in the week at the nets trying to get some.' practice, but it was more,suitable for football, as they spent mest of their time dodging the balls, which went every way hat the-, correct one. # "# * The match Karrakatta v. East Fremantle promises to supply a very good *' go" wherever it is played.

LOCAL NOTES. SENIORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898

LOCAL NOTES. SENIOKS. The two games decided last Saturday between the M.C.C. and Fremantle and the Karrakatta and Austral Clubs respectively were foregoue conclusions after the first day. Even if Fremantle bad had a full team, they could not have staved off defeat, while the good batting of the xemaining Karra- katta men soon put that club in possession of the game against the Australs. Bishop's bowling aver- age for the M.C.C. was exceedingly good-five wickets for 28 rans. This was-the only noteworthy in- cident Ou Hie ground." JüNIORS. The First J. A. started their second round with one or two curious draws. The Railways, hitherto looked on as a weak team, went up to Guildford to meet that I formidable club, andi to the general surprise, rather worsted it. How- ever, the game is not over yet. The East Perth Club, went out to the beautiful ground at Subiaco (where the sand comes from), and the Austral "A" played the M.C.GÍ " B " at Lord-street. Subiaco look as if they will lose; th...

AT THE WICKETS. SPECIAL NOTICE.--Secrctaries of .Clubs, and Captains and Manager» of Teams, are requested to send all communications addressed : "THE UMPIRE," Sunday Times Office, Perth. LATEST CHAT. I cannot congratulate the First Junior Association " on their ar- rangements for the second round in that Association's competition. There are fourteen clubs altogether, and each team should there- fore meet every other team once. So far seven games have been fought out with various results, but now, owing to some bungle, sevei-al of the clubs have to mçet again teams they have already beaten. For instance, the M.C.C.

PARASITES OF SOCIETY. ] No. ir. TSE LOAN FIEND. À fortnight, ago or thereabouts a certain clerk named Elver Gree- nough Fry, being maddened by pecuniary trouble, borrowed a pistol from one friend and half-a crown from another, purchased some cartridges with a portion of the last-named sum, and return- ing home shot bis two chil- dren, his wife and himself. The poor-wretch had been driven mad by the horrible exactions of I the loan fiend, and the brntal ' extortion of the time-payment j broker, of which latter class of parasite more anon. Poor Mr. Fry waa but the last of a long line of people rained and diiveu to desperation in the same way. The cable informed us a day or two ago that since 1890 a single money - lender hud managed to obtain no less than £115,000 in the shape of iuterest from Lady Tatton Sykes. Another money-lender deposed in the case against, the unhappy William Neville, who was sen- tenced , to five years' penal servi- tude for fraud a few days ago, that he had rece...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Shin CHI t> Hintes. SUNDAY, MARCH 6, iSgS. THAT 4SCANDALOUS JOB' AOAIN. ; ¿A fortnight ago the S CK DAT TISTES exposed in its issue for February 20 a most disgraceful job, whereby it was intended to hand over to one Eastern firm the whole of the supply of railway printing and sta- tionery for the coming year. The disclosure startled the con- spirators immensely. They walked in the daik, because their deeds were evil, and they never antici- pated that- the search light of an independent newspaper would be brought to bear upon their move- ments. They were for a moment at a loss what to do. To break np the conspiracy and abandon the arrangement was not to be thought of. That would have necessitated the return of the boodle to the firm, and the Civil Service is not built that way. It would also have deprived the firm of its intended booty, and this is about the last thing to which its members would consent. So a new scheme was concocted, and it was confidently hop...

[?]rom Day to Day. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898

Jfrmti gag to gag. Recently in Germany there oc- cured one of the most gruesome conferences which it has been my fate to hear of. It seems that the executioner of the Kingdom of Prussia celebrated his golden wed- ding, and invited thereto all the man-butchers practicing their pro- fession within the limits of the German Empire. About fifty of these ghonls assembled and made merry, and afterwards held a debate on the most approved methods of killing off their fellow creatnres. Conservatives will be charmed to learn that they unani- mously decided in favour of the old system of hanging, and ta- booed all new-fangled notions. After this expert decision, you and I, dear reader, may comfort oar selves with the thought that we shall be " turned off" in the good old orthodox fashion, and not be compelled to risk, our necks in any other kind of fatal experiment. I hope, however, that the rope will not be " made in Germany." The Kaiser, I observe with surprise, did not make a speech at this ...

When he left Sydney for this colony less than a month ago he had all Australasian recërds np to 10 miles to his credit. Uon Walker has ruthlessly scattered ,them, and Gargnervitch, known as the Australian Michael, has followed his lead. # " # # To Don Walker is due the credit of being the first cyclist in Australasia to beat world's records. This fae has done iu such a mar- vellous manner that he can lay claim to being classed amongst the ! greatest riders of the world.
