WITH THE DEAN OF PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
WITH THE DEAN OF PERTH. " Hullo ! Is that the Deanery ?" " Yes. Who are you ?" " The Sunday Testes. I want to speak to Dean Goldsmith." " Yes. I am he." " Ob, thanks ! I rang yon np to ask you about the Cathedral choir." "Oh,yes! What do you want to know ?" ''Well, Mr. Dean, you must know that for tiie leading church of the most prominent and numerous religious body in the colony the choir of St. George's Cathedral is far from being what it ought to be." " I do know it, and can assure you that I have done my best to improve it, but the fact is the vestry cannot bring themselves to see that liberal treat- ment means a good choir." " Quite so. And a good choir means a good service ; a good service means a good congregation, and a good congre- gation means a good collection. Eh ? " " Yes ; you are right, but what can I do ? " " Well, if s not far the Sunday Times to make suggestions, butas we rung you up we feel bound to say something that may help. As you know, the choir has been grad...
LATEST WHEELING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
LATEST WHEELING NOTES Previous to his departure yes tesday afternoon, Platt-Betts was met by some of the prominent cyclists in the city, and the usual nice things were said. The tittie champion has gained heaps7 of friends in the Antipodes, and his future career will be eagerly watched by them. * # * Another move in the tactics of racing men is announced. This time they want a special meeting of the League called to consider the disqualification imposed on Vernon. They can do no good, and will not* further their interests in the slightest by threatening the council. There are other means of gaining the desired end. * * * It is noticeable that one of the members of the League Coun- cil has signed the requisition call- ing upon the officials to convene the special meeting. Such action most be deprecated. Councillors should be loyal to the governing body or relinquish their position. * # * Records have again fallen during the week and the quarter-mile, half-mile, and one mile flying st...
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, MARCH 13, 1898. TROUBLOUS TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Shutout» tlimes. SUNDA ¥, MARCH i3t 1898. TROUBLOUS TIMBS. The alluvial storm has broken forth once more with twofold in- tensity. During the past week four men who have been engaged in aUuvial'digging have been com- mitted to Fremantle Gaol for the heinous offence of earning their own livelihoods by the pursuit of their legitimate calling. Technically they have been committed for contempt of court, because they refused to obey orders ' of doubtful legality and incontro- vertible injustice issued by Warden Hare. As the Süííbat Times has shown in previous issues, our sym- pathies are wholly with the men ; for they were deprived in the first place of their legal remedy hy the passage of the amendment to Regulation 103, and compelled to maintain their rights outside the technical boundaries of a probable misinter- pretation of the law. Now they are being punished with imprison- ment for a condition of affairs which they had only a passive share in bringing about. In...
WITH THE COMMISSIONER OF RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
WITH THE COMMISSIONER OF RAILWAYS. " Are you there ?" " Bather. What do you want ?" "The Commissioner of Railways, if you please !" " I am here. What is it ?" " Do you not live at Katanning ?" " I have many interests there. What then?" " Why in the name of all unutterable things do not you try to make life en- durable to the traveller from Europe or the East ?" " What do you mean r" " Let me a story tell you : A few days ago, coming up from Albany, I was asked by the porter at Mount Barker if I should 'want supper at Katanning. He would telephone up ?' " "Quite right. You could not expect them to be up if he did not telephone, could you?" " Ko ! But we might have had good food, however dear it might have been." " All the food here is perfect. I have fourteen thousand acres of land, where apples, pears, grapes, oranges, guavas, gooseberries, and other fruits-" " Thanks, have read all that in the leading journal. What the Sunday Tikes wants to know is why the re- freshment stations at...

Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
^toinpning. A carefully prepared statement showing the profit that had ac- crued to the council since the opening of the baths shows, pro- viding that the income would keep up at its present rate, that a profit of £1,00&lt;» .1 year could be made. Under these circumstances, one feels justified in asking if the baths are such a first-class paying concern why the necessity arises for the council leasing to others when they have such a first-class asset in their hands ? *" * * It was intended to have had dis- plays of swimming at the opening of the baths, but the idea was not allowed to become public property, and, therefore, was not carried out. * * » We may soon expect to hear of the successful lessee taking pos- session, and if he be an energetic man, it will not be very long be- fore we should hear of swimming races being inaugurated, which to many will be very welcome, for we have in our midst many first-class exponents of the art, who will look forward eagerly to the chan...
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [By "Fortis."] J. Platt-Bette has taken his de- parture for the homeland, whither he sails to-day from Albany. He left the metropolis by the mai' train yesterday afternoon. Pi«_ vious to his taking leave of Aus- tralia the little champion expressed his appreciation of and gratitude for the manner in which he had been treated by every one. * # * His modesty an almost maidenly shyness made.Platt-Betts a favour- ite with the public apart from his wonderful capabilities as an exhi hibition rider. Australians love and delight to hononr visitors who are devoid of any braggadocio, and as they ara quite exceptional in the cycling world at least, it can- not be wondered at that the little Lancashire lad was treated right royally. * * * Now that he has gone, one can- not help reflecting on the immense amount of good the cycling in Australia his visit has resulted in. Colonials were stirred np to trj and do likewise by the exceptional riding of Platt-Betts, and' t...

YACHTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
YACHTING NOTES. The Perth Flying Squadron are having another of their almost weekly races to-day, and from the large entry to hand another excit- ing race may be expected. This club must be commended for the manner in which it is catering tot its members, and with the ener- getic officers at its head as they have at the present time, the time cannot be far distant when they will far outstrip the much older organisation of the Royal Perth Yacht Clab. By the aid of the liberality of their friends and sup- porters, they are always to the fore with trophies for competition, and the Perth Flying Squadron fills a place for yachtsmen that was badly wanted. * * * The police steam launch again came to the timely rescue of the members of the Auraria, who met with a mishap through capsising down in Freshwater Bay, and on theil' arrival at the scene of the disaster it was found that they had not arrived any too soon, as some of the crew had been quite long enough in the water, but fortunately t...
NOTES FROM THE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
NOTES FROM THE PORT. Last Saturday, when Fremantle and Austral met on the Oval, there was a very poor attendance, but those who did pnt in an appear- ance were rewarded by seeing some very fair batting* especially on the part of Thurgood, whose hitting, on this occasion has not, I t-houM think, been surpassed in W.A. before, even by himself. # * , * Fremantle were strengthened by the inclusion of their two best all- round men-Musgrove and Thur- good, while'the Australs were still without several of their hest play- ers. Herring (25), Musgrove (Ï7), and Keogh (13), batted in their usual good style ; and Hodge (19), Dwyer (23), Gardner (17) showed improved form, especially the first named. -??*; Thurgood deserves a line to him- self in this match. - I have never seen better hitting displayed be- fore. Altogether it was the best innings I have seen A. J. T. play. He hit two fivers, and nearly got another, as one hit the top of the fence past the goal posts. One five was got ona very fu...

MONOPOLE CYCLES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
MONOPOLE CYCLES. Messrs. Splatt, Wall and Co., of 361 Hay-street, landed yesterday, and have now on view, a large shipment of the famous Monopole Cycles. A racer fitted with duplex tubing, Westwood rims, half-pitch roller chain, forward handles, and handsomely enamelled in maroon, and silver lined, is undoubtedly one of the finest specimens of a racing machine we have seen. It only weighs 191b. Road-racers, roadsters and ladies' machines are also on view at the Acme and Monopole Agency, 361 Hay-street. Banker's Eye Lotion is a boon to mankind. Its properties are well known, and is said to be a sure relief and absolute cure to all those who suffer from the dreadful complaint, sore eyes.

But how can we help you, beyond "black- guarding " the responsible authori- ties until tiiey do something? for you ? -a course which I do not care to take np. C. Ja. Baker.-The captain, of course. He is the only man who should speak in the field, either to give orders or to arrange details with the opposing captain. A bowler should always move a field through the captain's ordor, never direct.
AMONG THE JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898
j AMONG THE JUNIORS. Last week saw a red-letter day, which should be marked with a white stone, as an Irishman might say. The Juniors pnt up the co- lony's record score when the Austral " A" team made 500 against the M.C.C. "B." In consequence, theie Las been much rejoicing, ai.d the defeated team are almost as pleased as if they had done it themselves. * * * King (157) and Chittleboro' (lá9) gave a very fine display, and the M.C.C some capital exercise, while Williams' 74 (not out), although made on top of the tired bowling, was commendable. Chittleboro' who for the first time this season lost his wicket (his average to date being about 300 ! !), was unfortu- nate in playing a rotten ball on to his wicket. * # * As will be seen by the list ap- pended, East Perth, by their vic- tory over Subiaco (where the sand comes from), are now four points to the good, and have a splendid show to go through unbeaten. The most notable match - after the Austral-M.CC. " B " record game -was that be...
