SENIOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

SENIOR NOTES. " O, what a fall was there, my cricket friends, When all the Mete, went out for 29 ! And East Fremantle flourished over them. O, now you weep ; and I perceive you feel The dint of pity, at the awful drop Of the once peerless metropolitans !" * * « There ; that about expresses the feelings over the miserable fiasco of last week, when theM.CC, after getting the East, Fremantle Eleven out for 97-a splendid per- formance - disgusted their sup- porters by the most awful failure yet recorded on the W.AC A ground. For a team which in- cludes such good bats as North, Duffy, Orr, Hamilton and Smith to go out for 29 on a fine wicket is inexplicable. It remains for them to retrieve their .réputation in their second innings. They will be strengthened by the inclusion of JUTonuny " Coombe, who has been away East for a few weeks, and who returned just in time to see his club put up a left-hand record. * * * I am sorry to hear rumours of disunion in the M.C.C. team, and hope there is...

A FAMOUS SHIP. THE LAST OF THE PRIVATEERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

 FAMOUS SHIP. THE LAST OF THE PRIVATEERS. The recent death of Mr. John -Laird, the Birkenhead shipbuilder, at the age of 64, recalls a dramatic passage in the history of the dying century. Mr. Laird's firm built the famous Alabama, the con- federate crniser,whicfa, stealing out of the Mersey under the pretence of making a trial trip to nowhere, ?teamed rapidly to Terceira, took on board a Confederate captain, and for two years waged most de- structive war against the Federal shipping. At the end of that time she was soak by the Kearsage off Cherbourg. The Alabama claims and preposterous awards followed. the Alabama's becobd. The cruise of the Alabama lasted 22 months of the years 1862-3-4. In that brief period she took over 2,000 prisoneis. From first to last she destroyed property totalling np to 5,200,000dol. The following figures show how the privateer dealt with the enemy's shipping : She burnt 25 full-rigged sailing craft, 4 brigantines, 6 schooners, 17 barques-sank a ship-of-...

Your public position in this mundane world is vastly different to the publicist and politician. Ministers, who* boast they are responsible to the people only, and that they always work for the people*s good, may come and go, and the world is little the better for their efforts. In- deed, it may safely be said that the mischief «ud evil perpetrated by these individuals, dressed in a little brief authority, live long after they are forgotten.

THE AUTUMN CARNIVAL [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

THE AUTUMN CARHIVAL (By Dbüid.) So far as the autumn carnival has gone everything has pro- gressed satisfactorily, and honors are fairly easy between backers and bookmakers. * . » Although Aurum is still the great public idol, Amiable, the Newmarket winner, has come in for a great deal of admiration, and this is only natural, for she is one of the handsomest horses that ever stepped * on * Flemington. Ulack in colour, ticked with a few grey hairs, Amiable stands a shade over 16.1 in height, and Is magnificently ' proportioned. As she walked down to the starting post on Saturday she was a perfect picture of the thorough- bred, and should Fielder adhere to his determination to take her to England, her appearance alone should ensure a big price. # # # Amiables history is of coarse well known. Fielder gave 600 guineas for her before her term of disqualification was quite up, and as early as January last an- nounced-his designs on the New- market. Fielder's confidence has been the most a...

PUBLIC OPINION Declares: [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

PUBLIC OPINION Declares : That the cool weather is welcome. That a Chinese Club in Perth would be intolerable. That the death of the mosquitoes means sound sleep at night. That no single Power dare go to war with the British Empire. That moonlight excursion trips at Fre- mantle are a great success. That the common informer has left the colony and will not be missed. That the Federal Convention humbugs no one but its blind, silly self. That the City Council deserves severe condemnation for salting the roads. That in the Sunday Times the people have a young and vigorous champion. That the increase in the British navy and army estimates will make Russia sit up. That the railway refreshinent-jropnis are a disgrace to the department and the colony. That the Transvaal loan of six millions means more taxation for British min- ing investors. That the "acting-Premier "' will run away to London and never meet Par- liament again. That brains, wealth, luck and pluck will pull England through al...

Thenings from home. "Leave off your damnable feces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

(gftomujs fxam %amt. (By the Old Píaygoeb.) ** Leave oft your damnable feces, and begin." _»_ . Everybody will be glad to hear ~that the financial tronbles of Messrs. Jones and Lawrence are very likely to have a happy ending at an early date. The clerk of the weather has been their chief -enemy. Hot nights for the Theatre and cold nights for the Fayre have, to use a theatrical phrase, " qneered the pitch." They have suffered a little, too, from the somewhat impetuous haste of ?artists, who forget that, however honest or solvent people may be, there are times and seasons which master them, and render their re- sources temporarily worthless. I understand, firstly, that no one will lose a penny ; secondly, that they will shortly carry on again in good «lyle; and, thirdly, that among iihe first of their stars will be that .sure and certain draw, Mr. George Darrell, who has during his trip to England turned ont another ?drama or two.

ORIGINAL POETRY OUR MOTHER-LAND. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

I _ ORIGINAL POETRY i - 1 OUR MOTHER-LAND. We see Her in oar dreams , the breeze Bears on its wings, above the foam. Her ever-welcome messages Of love and pride to sons who roam, And who return them thousandfold. From land-lost isle and lonely waste ; From bleak plateaus where gems and gold With thirst and death are interlaced'; From hill-clasped towns; from fertile lands; From savage forests, unknown streams, And stately cities-She commands, And, lo ! we see Her in our dreams. We hear Her in our dreams : Her voice Insistent falls on sleeping ears And bids us once again rejoice As we were wont in other years. The echoes of the Past are blent In sad, sweet cadence on the night, Half-welcome song and half lament. For some have fallen in the fight, And some are faint, and tired, and hot, And others, dazzled by the beams Of bronzing suns have part forgot Yet, still, we hear Her in our dreams. We bless Her in our dreams-and She, Our Mother-Land, responsive, smiles, And waves the Sceptre ...

GEORGIANA ON LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

GEORGIANA ON LOVE. By Heb Uncle. (By Henry Martley.) I found Georgie sitting on the grass by the pond at the end of the garden. She was engaged in shaking one of her retriever puppies vigorously and with an anxious face. "What has Monty been doing ?" I enquired. "He'seaten a newt," she answered, "and I don't think it's quite agreed with him." " I wish you'd give up keeping a pond aquarium," I said, "or else put it somewhere else than in buckets just outside the house. I broke my shins against one of them last night, and there were at least four newts about the dining-room this morning." "That's just it," Georgie explained; " I was trying to teach Monty and Carlo to retrieve them. Carlo will chew them and Monty swallows them." Monty just then sighted Carlo in pursuit of a bee, and wriggled off to join him. "He seems better," Georgie re- marked, with a sigh of relief, and stretched herself out on the grass. " Uncle Bichard," she enquired, after a pause, " why, if I caught a newt, woul...

Roming. "Take your tims from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

ROWING. (By "Stroke") "Take your time from me, boys." The West Australian Rowing Club launched their one streak eight-oar boat on Sunday last, and manned by the following :-Under- wood (stroke), P. Ryan (7), Kelly (6), Cobham (5), Jones (4), Mathieson (3), Crommelin (2), and Wolinski (bow), with Secretary Muir in the cox.'s seat, had a very pleasant row of several miles. It was not to be expected that the form shown should be any way good, as it is seven or eight months since the members have had any eight-oar practice. During the intercolonial tussle the boat was so severely knocked about that she was not in a fit state to be used, and at the time a difficulty was ex- perienced in being able to get the services of a racing boatbuilder to repair her. Since the arrival of George McCarter, a well-known worker for Jas. Edward and Sons, he has proved his abilities in the racing boat line to the complete satisfaction of the local clubs. * * # The West Australian Club is framing rules for...

But-why not growl at the respon- sible people instead of troubling the postman and my poor head ? "Disgusted."-Well, yes. I must ad- mit that the East Perth are good "pointers-" but on the whole they deserve their place at the head of the list. As far as I can see, the secret of their success hangs on the fact that they play together. Other teams don't. C S. Baker (Fremantle).-Certainly. Send it in.

PIRE IN MOUNT'S BAY ROAD. The stables at "Penwith," Mount's Bay-road, the residence of Captain Oates, MX. A, were discovered to be on fire at about 4 o'clock on Saturday afternoon. The place got well alight before the arrival of the Fire Bri- gade, but fortunately the ponies and a trap were got out withuot injury. Considerable damage was, however, done to the stables. The fire originated from the ignition of a pile of bamboos which are supposed to have been ignited by a spark from a neigh- boring chimney. 1 v Monopole Cycles, 36i gay gtnet.
