WORKING MEN'S BLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

WORKING MEN'S BLOCKS. We are indebted to Mr. Thros- sell for a copy of the new Land BUL which includes some im- : portant provisions in reference to ! suburban working men's blocks. ' Under the reign of the Forrests, j we have to be thankful for small mercies, and frequently are so, bnt our surprise and delight is un- bounded when we find a sub- stantial measure placed before us, especially when it emanates from the Minister for Lands, in whom there is no guile. A brief summary of the provisions of the bill in reference to these blocks may prove of interest to oar readers. First of all the bill provides that any person who earns his liveli- hood by his own labour-an im- portant snd significant provision may obtain one block of 20 acres -and one only, which again is important-within 10 miles of any city or town. This person mnst not be already a freeholder, a squatter, or landlord of any kind, and he is to pay £1 per acre for the freehold in instalments, prac- tically amounting to 2s...

DON'T YOU SMELL FIEE? [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

DON'T YOU SMELL FIEE? I (Br A. LUMLEY.) Run for the Perth fire engine, For the pawnbroker's all in a blaze, And the pledges are frying and singing ; Oh, how the poor pawners will craze ! Now where can the turncock be drink- ing? Was there ever so thirsty an elf ? But he may still tope on, for Pm think- ing That the plugs are aa dry as himself. What a row there will be and a grumb- ling When the water don't start for a run ? See ! There they come racing and tear- ing; All the street with loud voices is filled. Oh, ifs only the firemen are swearing At a man they've run over and killed. How sweetly the sparks fly away now, And twinkle like stars in the sky. Ifs a wonder the engines don't play, though, But I never saw water so shy. Why ! there isn't enough fora snipe, And the fire it is fiercer, alas ! Oh, instead of the main water pipe They have gone-that they have-to the gas. Oh, dear ! what a beautiful flash, How it shone through the window and door, We shall soon hear a scream and a...

From Day to Day. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

gxm §ag t0 §aj. It ie really time the attention of Mr. Piesse was directed to the manner in which the mizéd trains to thé goldfields are conducted. There is one, for example, which leaves.Perth at 10 p.m. and arrives at Kalgoorlie at abbat the same hour the following night, sp that those who find themselves com- pelled to use this train have tp travel 24 hours at a stretch. When a train takes .that time to reach Kalgoorlie it is only reasonable that some interval should be allowed the passengers for refresh- ment, and some other provisions " made for their comfort. "# # ' # ' ? But such is hot now the case. Although the train . frequently stops afc some God-forgótten plaice in the middle of the desert to take in sand ballast, or water, or some- thing, it never stops where there is any chance of refreshment being procured. ' Fifteen minutes is* all that is allowed at Southern Gross after travelling all night from Perth; and the only hotel is a quarter of a mile from the station. At B...

THE SULTAN'S CASE. RATEPAYERS PETITION FOR A PUBLIC MEETING. THE MAYOR AGREES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

THE SULTAN'S CASE. RATEPAYERS PETITION FOR A PUBLIC MEETING. THE MAYOR AGREES. If the Mayor and ratepayers of Geraldton have really taken the Sultan's case in hand, Abdul the Damned is damned indeed ! # * * A flating headline in the Mt. Magnet Miner announces that that paper has at last discovered *. An Honest Man." I will condone the " ingrammaticism," as Artemus Wai-d calls it, and hasten to con- gratulate my contemporary. To find a honest man anywhere is a genuine treat worth twice the price of admission, bnt to find one in Mt. Magnet is indeed little short of a miracle. * # # It seems that a Mr. Dalziell, a dry bio wer by profession, is the honest man unearthed. Mr. Dalziell was a patient at the Mt. Magner. Hospital, and on being cured was told that he had incurred a debt of some £16 odd. He left the hos- pital with only faalf-a-soyereign.v which" "was"1* presented him by the ' secretary. This was two years ago, and now having amassed the sum of £20 he promptly sent it on to the...

THE AFTERMATH OF THE TEST MATCHES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

! THE AFTERMATH OP THE TEST MATCHES The Critic, an Adelaide weekly which is fast coming to the front with its bright and sparkling criticism of men, manners, and mines, writes as follows regarding Stoddart and his men, more in sorrow than in anger : . " Stoddart's speech after the final test match was that of the perfect gentle- man. His appreciation of his opponeuts and his candid admission that the best all-round team had won were graceful remarks, none the less well deserved because of the gentleman who made them. The saddest dis- closures of the speech were those parts referring to the treatment his team has met with at the hands of Aus- tralian crowds, and the unwarranted custom that has prevailed of sending uncomplimentary telegrams to the various members when they have been unfortunate enough to fail. Be it noted, however, that the crowds have not been altogether partial to the scurvy treatment they have meted out to players on the ground. No one, however, will deny that the ...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 14.] THE HONOURABLE GEORGE THROSSELL, M.L.A., J.P., MINISTER FOR LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 14.] THE HONOURABLE GEORGE THROSSELL, M.L.A., J.P., MINISTER FOR LANDS. Sir,-I am pleased to be able to say that I can commence my epistle to yon by stating that I regard you with more respect than I feel for the whole of your gifted Ministerial colleagues put together. This statement may seem startling, but* it is only true. I look upon you as the one member of the Forrest Ministry who is worthy of the respect and confi- dence of the people, and my only marvel is that you should ever have allowed your name to be associated with such a collection of individuals as that chameleon-Ministry now and has for long consisted ef. I am'persuaded also that the motí ves which induced you to accept a 1 portfolio were honourable to your- self, and that you were swayed only by the hope of advancing the ! interests of the colony, and, above all, of being able to give a palp- able impetus to the great move- ment in favour of land settlement, which will ever be hon...

TURF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

TURF NOTES. The decision given by the Chief Justice of Tasmania (Sir Lambert Dobson) in the case brought by the owner of the horse Western to recover certain stakes is one which serves to illustrate the re- lations existing between Turf Clubs and . clu bs which are affili- ated. The case briefly stated was as follows :-Barr ington came in first for the Steeplechase at Carrick on May 24 last, but was found to be more than 41b. overweight. Under the T. T. C. rules 4lb. over- weight in a steeplechase disquál i fies, unless the extra weight is considered to have been caused by wet weather, or other unavoidable causes. The stewards considered that the wet weather -was the canse, and awarded the prize to Barrington, and the owner of Western appealed to the T. T. C., which body, without considering the Carrick stewards, reversed the decision, and ordered the money to be paid over to Western. The Carrick Club refused -to give in, and were, as a consequence, unable to hold any further race m...

THE LONDON MARKET. OUR CHANCES FOE MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

THE LONDON MARKET. i OUR CHANCES FOE MONEY. Mr. A. J. Vogan, F.R.G.S., the well-known writer, has kindly forwarded ns the following : Sir,-I just send you some re- marks made to me in a letter by a cousin of mine in London. Pie is a very wealthy man, and much interested in mining ia British Columbia and other parts of the world, and in motor cars. As coming from a practical and ex- perienced . man (who is in the " inner circle " of London finance) his remarks are worthy of respect, and, as hopeful as regards this colony, perhaps of credence-it is so helpful to believe in good times coming. To condense. He say« that " there is about four million per week in London which has to be invested. Thus the whole Chinese loan would only mean a month's (incoming capital to be re-invested. Klondyke, although likely to take some millions, will not. interfere with the W.A. market. The Yukon district has been boomed for all it is worth, and mach money will go in Alaska and Canadian mining ventures...

CURRENT COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

CURRENT COMMENTS. (BY STYLUS.) Tammany in New York is com- monly represented by a tiger. The stealthy animal when most on the alert is apparently half asleep, and when least expected, with a tre- mendous bound, is on his prey. This is a true representation of Tam- many's political actions. He gives no notice, no warning, of what he is after, and when least suspected he is on the quiet hunt and takes the prey before the opposition knows anything of his plans. Within the last year our Govern- ment, like Tammany, has twice come down on the alluvial miners in unexpected form. There is another point of resemblance. The Tammany boss on special occasions of onslaught is always conveniently inaccessible. In like manner onr political chief has on each occa- sion referred to been conveniently out of reach when the miners interests were antagirised. On the first occasion he was on his way to the record reign festivities ; and more re- cently the Federal Convention in Melbourne was the opportun...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, MARCH 27, 1898. THE GOLDFIELDS ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 27 March 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN SUNDAY, MARCH 27, x8çS. THE GOLDFIELDS ON FIRE. Every lover of justice and of law and order will view with profound regret the excesses in which a portion of the goldfields population indulged a few days since at Kal- goorlie. It is deplorable to think that the men who had so gallantly fought and had practically won a great battle againt tremendous odds, and had conducted it throughout on constitutional lines, should have been betrayed into violence by a few ruffians, who are totally unknown and unrecognised by the leaders, and who, in all probability, are criminals who took advantage of the confusion, excitement, and all pervading clouds of dust to create a riot simply to gratify their own pre- datory instincts. That Sir John Forrest-should have been made the victim of such ruffianism is a fact which . everyone, no matter whàt hi& opinions may be, will sincerely regret. . .#.#.* But during the next few weeks the men who have lost most by this unfortunate...
