A BOLD ATTEMPT AT BOBBERY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
A BOLD ATTEMPT AT BOBBERY. Yesterday (Saturday) morning a bold attempt was made to steal £300 from Mr- G. W. Arnold, a clerk in the Government Printing Office. This amount was conveyed by Mr. Arnold from the bank for the payment of the hands employed, and while passing through Pier-street a man snatched the bag. A chase ensued, and Arnold succeeded in recovering the bag, but the thief escaped.
AN ALLEGED INDIGNATION MEETING. PUBLIC OPINION AS IT IS MADE. Editor "SUNDAY TIMES." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
AN ALLEGED INDIGNATION MEETING. PÜBMC OPINION AS IT Is MADE. Editor "SUNDAY TUCES.'*! Sir,-Very amusing some., of the reports re indignation meetings held throughout the colony sym- pathising with Premier Forrest over tile Kalgoorlie fraca*. This is the latest from Marble Bar, a " tin-pot " hole,-with a population of 33, compris- ing 25 Government servants, two pub- licans, an editor, reporter, compositor of local rag, all in one, and the rest miners. The report states that the room in which the meeting- was held was crowded. The said room is an out- house, forming part of one- of the Í hotels, and tittie larger than a good- : I sized hen coop, so that one can form a" good idea what a crowded meeting ÍB in j-tftat unholy part of the world. The - motion of condemnation was carried ? with only three dissentients. Te gods! Naturally Government employees must look after their bread and butter; the scribbler for rag must look to bis interests; publicans must sell their shypoo; and the th...
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE LAST HAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
ORIGINAL POETRY. ,THE LAST HAVEN. A fisherman sang a joyous song In the light of the closing West ; He sang as he swept his boat along To his little hillside nest. And his wife replied o'er the sleeping tide With a sweet and happy strain, For work was done and the setting sun Meant two in one home again. The fisherman loosed his sheet a-lee, And sailed for the far-off West, For love may bear on the open sea What kills in an empty nest. But soft and clear on his hungry ear The notes of an older strain Would sometimes fall, like the well known call, For two in one borne again. The fisherman struck on the shifting sand, Where each of us comes at last, He struck where the icy waters roll O'er the wrecks of the golden past ; But glad and strong was the faithful That broke through the clouds of pain, For toil was done, and the haven won Meant two in one home again. WILLIAM WOODWARD.
OUR BLACK BRETHREN. HUNGER AND THIRST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
OUR BLACK BRETHREN. HUNGER AND THIRST. When the colonial Government took over control of the aborigines from the Imperial Board, that portion of the public which takes auy interest in the matter looked forward to some improve- ment in the method of distributing the relief which the Government had pledged itself to give the blacks of the colony. But up to date matters are as they were-at least as regards the.natives living on the North-East Coolgardie goldfields. The same system of giving a dole of flour and water to the aged anddecrepid obtains at Kurnalpi and probably a few other places, but seeing that the great majority of them are not fortunate enough to possess the above qualifications they are compelled to battle for an existence by begging, thieving and prostitution. They are not permitted to stay for any length of time in the neighbourhood of large towns, such as Kalgoorlie and Cool- gardie (where some of the local scribes allude to the unfortunate wretches as " scum of the ...
THE EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
THE EFFECT. The effect of this minute has been the cancellation of the obnoxious: amendment to regulation 103, while the Premier's vie «rs on certain leased land, which we have italicized above, have a most important significance in connection with the Ivanhoe Venture cases, and will, no doubt, serve to con- siderably modify the judgments pro- nounced concerning it.
MINERS ON LEASES HUNTED OFF. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
MINERS ON LEASES HUNTED OFF. The present management of the Golden Link lease at the Boulder have summoned all occupiers of houses on the said lease. The cases camé before the Warden yesterday, Mr. Jones defending. The Warden re- served his decision, but expressed his opinion that the manager (although holding power of attorney from the company) had no power to give per- mission, which he admitted having given in each case. A special case has been stated for the Supreme Court by Mr. Jones. ? We have formed ourselves into a defence committee, and at a meeting held last night it was resolved to ask you to kindly address a public meeting at the Boulder to enlist the sympathy of the public, as it is a very serious matter to the whole district if all men are to be hunted off the leases like dogs at the will or pleasure of any manager who may deem fit to do so. We have already received liberal donations from the people on adjoining leases. Trusting you will be able to help us. B. HUGHES, C...
THE GENTLE COMPANY-MONGER. HOW HE TREATS THE PROSPECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
THE GEKTLE CÖMPANT MOXGER. HOW HE TREATS THE PEOS PECTOE. Ï would much like your opinion on the following item : I, with one other prospector, pros- pected a mine called the Railway Cr.M., at Broad Arrow. It has been worked in a very mysterious manner, and as the directors cannot get the calls in they are attempting to reconstruct. When the mine was floated we received part cash and fully paid np shares. Now that the contribution shareholders have ceased to pay theil- calls the directors are going to reconstruct and compel ali. fully paid shareholders to contribute the same as contributing shareholders. Now, I contend that wheu they cease to pay calls the property should, fall into the fully-paid shareholders, for they have broken their agreement, or otherwise the fully-paid shareholders still should hold a free interest. . There is Ss. per share more to call in, so I cannot for the life of me see how they can call it reconstruction. They have just given me notice this evening to ap...
A MODERN MIRACLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
A MODERN MIRACLE. He was kicked and he was cuffed, Was bullied and was bluffed, Jumped upon and sat upon, and wal- loped with sticks, But what makes the story look peculiar, Makes you think they're trying to fool-yah, Is that he came unscathed and un- dismayed from out a cloud of bricks. Not a single whack he got, Though the strife was very hot, Not a bruise and not a mark of any kind to shew. Though they bumped hun, and they thumped him, And on the Une they dumped him, The latest bulletins declare that he's all right up to now. Those who view it from a distance, Bead of his bold resistance, >How heroically he cried: "I'm damned now if I do," Must come to the conclusion That it 'twas all delusion, Or else miracles have happened, now which theory is true? But when we all remember That the attempt made to dismember Was tried upon a saint of saintliest hue, We hail the holy martyr (Though his language was a startler) Till he cried "Forgive them, for they know not what they do." When...
Evennings From Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
(BY PULYGOEB.) j ** Leave off your damnable bees, and begin." i Next week the Waldrons, Bay Doris, Mr. W. Winton, and Miss . Lilian Tree terminate their engage- : menés with the Cremorne Com- pany, the two former appearing for the last; time on Friday, and? " yours" ventriloquially " and Miss : Tree Making their final bow to Perth audiences on Saturday. * These artists have become quite old friends, but Perth audiences, and particularly habitúes of Cre- morne, have many habits, customs, and ideas which were common to ¡ the people of Athens, who spent ' their time in telling or hearing some new thing. A change is appreciated at all times, and a wail having reached us from those who patronise the gardens for some- thing new from the sweetest voiced and most glorious vocal artist that' has ever . . been in Perth, I beg of Miss Lilian Tree-nay, implore her-to silence these wails by treating her audi- ences to some new thing before she takes her departure from Perth. .

NIGHT'S STILL WATCHES. SONNET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
NIGHT'S STILL WATCHES. SONNET. (By E.V.B.) In Night's still watches, when the ghostly eye Has clearest vision, and the ghostly ear The silent sounds of fancy best can hear, Then most I know thy voice and pre- sence nigh. For when, with aching, craving heart I sigh, And sadly gaze into the darkness drear, Methinks from out the gloom thine eyes appear, And thy voice whispers " Iiove can never die." Once more I clasp thy hand; once more thy lips Seek mine ; and once again my soul is drawn To seek thine, as I sink upon thy breast. But, lo ! the cold, grey glimmer of the dawn! Thy form from out my arms reluctant slips. And with the day comes back .the day's unrest. Dr. Hooper's Nerve and Brain Tonie is a chemical combination of valuable phosphoric compounds, in such a form as may entitle it to the name of Brain and Nerve Food. It gives Vigor and renewed strength to the system when suffering from Nervous Exhaustion and Impaired Vitality, and restores to their normal action deranged organs...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 15.] TO FREDERICK ILLINGWORTH, ESQ., M.L.A. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
PUBLIC LETTERS T0| PUBLIC MEN. --: i [No. 15.1 ! _ i To FREDERICK ILLINGWORTH, ESQ., ! M.L.A. j Dear Sir,-I shall address voa in the coarse of this letter neither in the languages of com pli meat or of condemnation. It is not my aim to dispense fulsome flattery on the one hand and abuse on the other, but I endeavour, and shall endeavour in your instance, as in others, to give a faithful picture of such publicr men as I address as they truly appear to me. It is said to be good, however unplea- sant, to see ourselves as others s«e UP, and we may depend upon it, after making due allowance for slander and variously expre-sed malignity, that the aspect we pre- sent to others is ». good deal more faithful to the life than that which we present to ourstlves. This being so, I can show you the esti- mate which has been formed of you by one who has had oppor- tunities of studying your life and character for the last six years, and who bases his estimate solely upon his experience, Whether or ...
YACHTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
YACHTING NOTES. i _ \ (BY " FLYING JIB.") Lovers of yachting enjoyed a treat last Saturday in witnessing one of the best contests sailed this season. A brisk southerly was kicking up a bit of a dust, and when the boats mustered off Mill Point at 3 o'clock, to start for Mr. H. E. England's cup, it was seen that all the boats were carrying full sail, which in some instances was a mistake, as subsequent events proved. After considerable manoeuvring the boats were got off to a capital start, with the ex- ception of the Olinda, who was interfered with by the judge's launch, all the boats standing off on the starboard tack as far as the Spit and then threw round. At this time the positions were-Inez, Ventura, Olinda, Aurora, and Iris. * « * The wind in the meantime having freshened a bit, things were a bit lively. Fifteeu minutes after the start the Ventura had secured" the lead, closely attended by the Olinda, the Inez lying third. At this moment, while the two leading boats were on the ...
GENERAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898
GENERAL NOTES. An interesting, if not altogether sensational, gambling case will shortly come before the courts, Mr. M. D. Bucker,one of last season's wealthy recruits to the ranks of racing men, having point-blank refused to pay some ¿2000, which he lost at baccarat at a house party during one of last season's race meetings at Newmarket. It appears that Mr. Hücker was playing the game for the first time on that occasion, and after losing his ready -money he gave signed acknowledgments for further losses to the amount of £2000. When these acknowledgements were presented for payment the holders were astounded to find that Mr. Racker refused to honour them. Representations and threats were alike of no avail-the loser simply would not pay, the only excuse he makes being that he "did not know the name of the game he 4$ad played, had neverr seen it before, and had become con- vinced he was cheated." # # # A foot race that promised to furnish an exciting contest was set down for decision ...
