A WORD FOR MR. THROSSELL—AND SOME OTHERS. No. I.—THE SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
A WORD FOR MR. THROS SELL-AND SOMEj OTHERS. By A. J. Vogan. Np. I.-The Suggestion. The original idea, I frankly own at once, is not the child of my own brain. I have merely taken the* trouble to elaborate it a little. To put it briefly, the author's thoughts moved in the direc- tion of some Government assis- tance being given towards bring- ing over the wives and families of those workers amongst us who want to establish their homes here, and who now send so much money eastward out of the colony, which we of Westralia would much prefer to, have circulated in the land we live in. It was in a second-class smoking carriage rolling up from Fremantle that the idea was discnssed. The " happy thought3' was enunciated by a. philosopher wearing the work-a day uniform of one belonging to the great army of industry ; and, the day's work done, each member of the debate, as he lowered his * leisure pipe ' to speak through the fragrant ~mist, felt at home both with, his subject and his audieuce. ...

From Day to Day. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
gam $aj to §aj. The Catholics of 'Fremantle had a good time on St. Patrick's Day in the morning, ide occasion being the blessing of a foundation stone by Bishop Gibney. The elite of the two cities were there to see that the Bishop didn't scamp his work, and Wittenoom was on deck to see that the 10-foot regulation was not forgotten. The func- tion was a huge success, and the Oblate Fathers, who were the hosts of the day, almost persuaded the present pagan to be a Christian by thtir jollity and hearty kindness. Fine men, these Oblate Fathers arc*, too ; religion seems to agre*1 with them. I overheard a couple of ii religions bystanders talking about one of the ecclesiastics possessed of the majestic diameter of John De Baan. 'Says «ne of them :**' Call him an Oblate Father -why, he's an oblate spheroid !" * # * Winton "s dummies at Cremorne bear a striking resemblance to the Government benches in Parlia- ment, except that they talk more and better.

A CHRISTMAS PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
A CHRISTMAS PRESENT. (By WilIiïam SEI.DIN Gidley.) " Tve seen and heard of a good many different kinds of Christmas presents," quietly remarked the Veteran, " but the one I appreciated most was a gift my boy received when I was campaign- ing down in Dixie. *' We had been hanging around in front of Petersburg for some months, pumping lead into the Confederates whenever we got a chance, and receiv- ing our change back in the same sort of coin. The outer lines of rifle-pits of the two annies were only a few dozen rods apart, and a soldier who was at all careless about exposing himself would have been a mighty poor risk for a life insurance company. " Occasionally a short truce would be agreed upon by the outposts, and the men would climb out and joke with one another, swap hardtack for to acco or whatever they needed the m^s*-. ex- change the compliments ot th^ =&lt;;ason3 and then, when the breathing-spëll was over, drop back under cover, resume their weapons, and again begin ...

Evenings From Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
?fttttîit$8 From Home. (By Playgoeb.) ." Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." I regret to state that owing to ill-health Mr. Bert. Lawson's medical adviser has asked him to give' up music-teaching entirely for the present, and take a long rest. Ko donbt the Portonians will regret this also, and as Mr. Lawson has at all times been kind and obliging with his services .where they have been sought, I think it only the correct thing that Mr. Lawson should receive a farewell benefit from the Fre- emantle musical folk. # * * The Tivoli Company at Cre- morne continue to draw large -assemblies, which as heretofore are charmed at the programmes «et before them for their delecta- ron Mr. James Harvey is a recent addition to their forces, and his lifelike' imitations of sundry ^actors, great and small, afford much amusement. Mr. Harvey is -an excellent mimic, and has cer- tainly strengthened Mr. Marcus' .corps not a little. # * * Miss Lizzie Kirk bas a couple of new songs, one of which ex...
THE SUPER-SACRED RIGHTS OF LEASEHOLDERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
THE SUPER-SACRED RIGHTS OP LEASEHOLDERS. In all the vast domains of the British Grown there is but one person who is absolutely above the law. The Sovereign, Lords, and Commons have to bow to its majesty and obey its dictates, but there is one class of in- dividuals who sit enthroned above it, and do not hesitate to break it whenever it is their good pleasure so to do., This class of persons are the West Australian leaseholders. If, in consequence of a breach of the law, a lease gets "jumped" their offenes are condoned, and special Acts of Parliament, having a retro-, spective effect, are passfed tsff give them an absolute immunity. This is what was done in the Hainault case. If the leaseholder finds a kind of gold in his lease to which he is not entitled, under the clauses of the Act by virtue of which his lease is held, what does he do ? Does he seek to bring his property under another section of the Act which would give him a legal title to the gold, which under the ordinary inst...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN ^undag Firnes. SUNDAY, MARCH20, 1898. YET ONCE AGAIN-WITTE- NOOM-ALSO REED. - On February 14 the statutory meeting of the Peak Hill Gold- fields, Limited, was held in Lon- don. Mr. Darlington Simpson, the chairman of the company, gave a very glowing account of the posi- tion of the concern both in re- ference to past profits and future prospects. On this we congratu- late the shareholders most heartily. We are always delighted to hear of our British brother scoop- ing in the shekels as the reward of his investment in this country. But we have also to congratulate them on other features of their enterprise, to them not less gratify- ing, though scarcely so much so to us. But although we cannot con- gi atnlate ourselves as West Aus- tralians apon one of the features of the report, we can still find much matter to interest us, and it may be that a careful consideration of one or two of Mr. Darlington Simpson's remarks may give ne food for cogitation which cannot fai...
WHAT THE GOLDFIELDS THINE OF THE "MORNING HERALD." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
WHAT THE GOLDFIELDS THINE OF THE "MORN- ING HERALD." We extract the subjoined article from the Kalgoorlie and Boulder Standard, as showing what the goldfields think of the Lovekin brand of benevolence : One magazine offers large prizes for scientific discoveries ; another endows with many shekels weekly the lucky guessers, per coupon, of the names of winning horses. Now, as the average man knows well enough, all these enterprises mean money. They are at bottom so many more or less extensive advertisements, and no newspaper proprietary can afford to chuck away its money on any one of them without seeing a very good prospect of getting it fcack with in- terest in the not too distant future But it is as natural as noteworthy that in thus advertising itself a newspaper is generally careful to confine itself to cases where no principle, social or political, is involved, or at any rate to boom no principles contradictory to those it wears six days out of the seven. A journal that acts oth...
Roming. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
Rowing (By "Stroke") "Take your time from me, boys." The promise of the North Fre- mantle Sailing Club to put on their programme of their Easter Monday Sports a four-oared race for maiden oarsmen is being very warmly taken up by the West Australian and Swan River Clubs. The former club have selected two crews to represent them, consist- ing of Messrs. Jones, stroke ; W. Clarke, 3 ; Jago, 2 ; and U. Wolinski, bow. The other crew consists of Messrs J. M'Kean, stroke ; Russell, 3 ; Bee, 2 ; and Crommelin, bow. * # * The Swan River Club so far ^have a crew out under the tuition of W. R. Horsburgh; con- sisting of Messrs. C. Brady, stroke ; G. Houston, 3 ; L. Dullard, 2 ; and A. Harrison, bow; and although only out a few times, are making very satisfactory progress. There is a possibility of another crew from this club either competing or else rowing off with the present crew to see who shall represent the club. t # * * These crews training for this race must interfere greatly with the e...
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORCINGS. 1 [By "Fortis."] What a fall was there! No better and more convincing evi- dence could be adduced that cycle racing is on a decline, than the bal- ance-sheet presented at the annual I meeting of the W.A. Cycling Club on Monday evening. A loss of I over £85 in connection with the last meeting conclusively proves that the game is not " what it 4s cracked up to be." j Comparing the position of this club from a financial standpoint at the present time with last year, it is forcibly shown that either cycl- ing is on the wane or the club has been conducted exceedingly badly. At the beginning of the year the club had a credit balance of £131 odd. To-day the members find that they will have a small debit balance when the late secretary's salary-called a honorarium has been paid. # # * A paragraph in the report sub- mitted by the committee to the members must be brimful of amusement to all wheelmen who take an interest in the fortunes of the metropolitan clubs. ...
ETHEL'S LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 20 March 1898
ETHEL'S LUCK., _ "Count Heinrich," said Ethel from the lounge, where she lay with her feet up on the cushions and her head thrown back, "whatare yon miserable about. Give me another cigarette." Count Henrich von der Felsenhohe took the ruby-studded cigarefcfce-case from the table and handed it to her with the low, deferential bow that looks so well in a servant and in a prince. " Da, meine Holde," he said, raising his curled head, and looking into Ethel's sleepy, pink face. *' I don't want a cigarette," she said pettishly ,and knocked the case out of his indolent hand. He raised his eye-brows ' lightly, and then leaned hack in his arm-chair again. " You puzzle me, you irritate me, , you tease me," said Ethel, pout ing. "What is the matter with you? Why don't you make a brilliant ¡ career ? And why don't you ask me to kiss yon ? , "Eh, la la," sighed Count Heinrich. I staring up at the gaslight. The five quivering flames were caught and j thrown back in prismatic brilliance a 1 hundr...
