Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
jEtsceUatmms. From successful jockey to suc- cessful footballer, and thence to champion sprinter, is decidedly a unique record in sport. G. Smith, of Auckland holds this record, as in 1894 he rode Impulse, winner of the New Zealand Cup. His weight increasing he gave up riding and took to football, and played last year for New Zealand against New South Wales, proved about the finest three quarter back in New Zealand. Last month he won the 100 yards championship of New Zealand, the 440 yards hurdles champion- ship, and ran second for the 120 yards hurdles championship. Now some interesting individual wants ti) know whether riding a hors': as ai professional"^oekey does uot dis- qualify a man from running as an amateur. The.Amateur Athletic Association of New Zealand has to decide the point. * * * At last Wray, the New South Wales sculler, who accompanied -James Stan bury to England when he went to meet Charles Harding, on the Thames, for the champion- ship of the world, has, after muc...

&lt;&bmín%% Jrnmt %ame. (BY PLAYGOER.) " Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." The Cremorne management ad- vises me just as we go to press that arrangements have been made for Mr. Frank Leon and Miss Lizzie Kirk to make positively their last appearance at the Gar- dens on Monday night next. Miss Kirk, and Mr. Leon, and Mr. Man nix leave for the Eastern colo- nies on Tuesday. * # # The Elite Company, which has been appearing at the Theatre Royal, leave Perth on Tuesday or Wednesday next, en route to Ade- laide, via Albany. The company purposes, showing at the Albany Town Hall next Friday and Satur- day nights. * * * J. W. WINTON, VKNTBILOQUIST. The worst feature about most variety shows is their lack of variety. So much is this the case, and so dreadful the monotony per- vading them, that very frequently the best item on the programme is the interval of five-drinks. .

THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. PETITION TO THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
THE OPENING OF PARLIA- MENT. PETITION TO THE GOVERNOR. I Yesterday afternoon Messrs. Vosper, Simpson, and Oldham, M's.L.A., waited upon His Excel- lency the Governor, and presented a petition signed by 8,950 persons, I praying that Parliament may be j immediately convoked to consider j the grave state into which the ; affairs of the colony have lately fallen. The deputation was very courteously received by Sir Gerard Smith, and Mr. Vosper, who acted as spokesman j pointed out the gravity of the existing situation and the need of remedial measures. He also expressed the. continued^loyalty of the petitioners, and repudiated and reprobated the reeent riotous proceedings. 'Hie Governor, in reply, said that he would consult-with his responsible advisers, and forward the deputa- tion his reply in due course. The Rev. Dr. Zillman will lecture to-night at the Bohemia Hall, and will deal with the recent floggings in Fremantle gaol. Mr. W. Lowes, ex-Mayor of Kanowna, arrived in Perth yester- ...
The World of Cricket. "When I says 'Hont!'—hout you goes." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
Cl)t maxiH oí Cricket. " When I says ' Hont! '-hout you goes." j -_- I That cricket, like many other things, runs in families has. been clearly demonstrated in the past, few, if any, will dare to dispute. The Graces, Darks, Dafts have for years past had representatives in the cricket field, and an occasional account appears in the press of a whole team being members of the same family. Australia is not without its cricketing families,' as the following interesting item will show :-The Australians were bat- ting on the Adelaide Oval in the third test match. Two youngsters, brothers of the champion Clem Hill, aged ll and nine years re- spectively, had got hold of a cricket bat and ball, and, on the principle, no doubt, that any game is better worth playing than watching, started a single wicket match on their own account behind the pavilion. They were playing at lunch time, and at 4 o'clock were still hard at it. Shortly after the adjournment a perspiring young- ster came round for a ...

The .Daily News of last night' contains the followings telegram^ "The correspondent of The Morning Herald, who was present, can assure both Sir John and Hr. Vosper that the alluvial diggers took no part in the unseemly conduct of the few who barred Sir John's passage, but on the contrary, every fair-thinking and reasonable per- son did everything in his power to check ¡ the disturbance/' 1 The truth is beginning to emerge ! at last. i

THE GOVERNOR HOOTED. A SHAMELESS DISPLAY OP DISLOYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
THE GOVERNOR HOOTED. A SHAMELESS DISPLAY OP DISLOYALTY. That even Perth crowds are not free from hoodlums and disloyal cowards is shown by what occurred at the Perth Railway Station on the occasion o£ the reception ac- corded, to Sir John Forrest. The Premier was loudly cheered, which was a legitimate expression of sympathy, bnt His Excellency the Governor was vigorously hooted, for no reason that can be discovered, unless his expressions of sympathy with the alluvial men can be construed into such. This exhibition of discourtesy was in its way quite as reprehensible as the proceedings of the mob at Kal- goorlie.
When in doubt tell the truth. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
When in doubt tell the truth. Slr Andrew Clark's celebrated liver tonic is the most efficient remedy, and is carefully prepared from the receipt of the late Sir Andrew Clark by the W.A. Apothecaries' Company. It has been long successfully used in the cure of liver complaints, kidney affections, chronic dyspepsia, etc., etc. The im- portant functions performed by the great biliary organs are scarcely recog- nised until those functions become de- ranged. Among the many causes which - produce an imperfect action of the liver may be classed lengthened residence in hot climates, over-stimulating food and drink, irregular diet habits; for the symptoms resulting, such as indigestion, languor, headache, low spirits, anxiety, and loss of energy, this remedy is recommended as the best that modern science can afford. This remedy is pro- curable at any of the Apothecaries Company's establishments throughout the colony.*
Torts and Retorts (MOSTLY RETORTS). [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
tos wà Retorte (MOSTLY BETORTS). The " most interesting" man of our acquaintance, and at the same time the greatest nuisance, is Mr. Polished McPiausible. For years he has been engaged in literary work, and scarcely a soul comes in contact with him who is not instantly informed of the number of years during which this great luminary has been engaged in educating and instructing his fellow - creatures through the columns of the Press in all and sundry parts of the world. Lord Chesterfield was a great man, and so he kept Johnson waiting his pleasure. In like manner McPiausible, great man as he is, keeps unfortunate compositors awaiting the pleasure of his High Mightiness for copy. A super- cilious contempt pervades the whole of his actions towards others engaged in similar pursuits to himself. »int, alas, pride goeth before a fall, and supercilious contempt bringeth its own re- ward. # * *
THE PREMIER ON THE RIOT. GROSS EXAGGERATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
THE PREMIER ON THE 1 RIOT. j GrBOSB EXAGGERATIONS. Sir John Forrest, on being in- terviewed by the daily papers, said that he was amused at some of the statements which had secured cir- culation. His hands had not been cutrhe said, nor, indeed, had- he been injured at alL " I was cer- tainly pushed off the platform," said the Premier, " but I was not injured. I was pushed from behind by someone who had pretended to be friendly. I waa not assaulted, except once, when I received a poke in the ribs from the handle of an umbrella- The crowd hustled me along, but I was never struck." Whoever heard of an alluvial digger carrying an umbrella 1 After this, who can deny that the Perth papers learnt the art of reporting from Munchausen ?
SIR JOHN FORREST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898
SIB JOHN FOBREST. .GENERAL BXPBESSÍONS OF SYMPATHY. From all parts of the colonies Sir John. Forrest has been inun- dated with telegrams of condolence -in reference to the recent Kal- goorlie outrage. Meetings of various public bodies have been held which have re-echoed ?the prevailing sentiment. The Perth City Council's discussion -was made the vehicle of a cowardly :aad mendacious attack on Mr. F. C. B. Vosper, M.L.A., by Cr. T. Quinlan, M.L.A, which consider Ably marred the effect of the dis- cussion itself.. All the various branches of the Alluvial Bights Association have repudiated all responsibility for the affair, and have sent in expressions of regret and disgnst at the dis- turbances, and of sympathy for the Premier. Thé alluvial cause has undoubtedly suffered much by the events which have taken place, and we, while sympathising with the Premier, extend our condol- ences also to the law-abiding diggers who have already, and will in the future, suffer most from the effects o...
