I'ZINGARI v. CITY TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
FZiNGABHr. CITY TEMPEBANCE. On Saturday last these teams met on . the Recreation ground, and it being the "PZingari's " opening match, a consider- , abie amount of interest was centred in the contest. Prendergast captained the FZingaris and winning the toaa, elected 1 to bat, sending in Healey and Ward to the bowling of Chapman and Sadler. Chapman opened by sending down a maiden, but Sadler was less fortunate, his first over producing 7 runs. Off Chap- '. man's nett 4 run sc ame, but after a twoer off Sadler to Ward that batsman had the misfortune to play one on to his wicket. Ferguson filled the vacancy and broke his "duck" from the last ball of the over. Healy after getting three more off Chapman put the ball into Brown's hands and retired for a vigorously played 9. Prendergast followed and things became more lively, two's and three's coming to both batsmen tn rapid succession, mostly off Sadler. In consequence of this a rhange was deemed necessary. Mullane, relieved Sadler and th...
METROPOLITAN V. UNION C.C. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
METROPOLITAN V, UNION 0.0. A match between the above mentioned Clubs was commenced last Saturday after- noon, and as it was not possible to finish the match in an afternoon, it was decided to continue it on some future occasion, when a full account of the match will be giren. For the present, however, it may be said that the feature in the play of the M. CC. was the batting ot Monger for 34, and that for the Unions the bowling of McDonough was very creditable.

CORRECT TIME. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
CORRECT TIME. fTo THE EDITOR.] SIB,-I have noticed daring the past two days a correspondence relative to the merits and demerits of the fremantle time and Perth time, one correspondent stating that the Fremantle time caused him to miss the train. For the informa* tion of the public I would state that the Fremantle time has always been correct, to a few seconds. Hearing before my arrival ia this colony that the time was badly kept here, I took a series of obser- vations duriug four months, and to the credit of Fremantle I must say their time was always correct-1 cauuot say as much for Perth, as the Town Hall clock at that place was constantly gaining and losing time, and not iu auy case to be relied up- j on, beiug at times six or seven minutes j before, and at other times as much behind correct civil time. Your correspondent is quito correct in saying there should be a standard time, and that throughout the colony, lu England and likewise in all countries time is now kept to the nea...

UNFERMENTED WINE. 4L - A COBBESPONDENT writes :-' I shall be inuch obliged it some of your numerous* readers can give a recipe for " TTnfer mented Wiue." I have one, but to follow its directions would take too much time/ We invite replies to this application, and having noticed that professors of total abstinence frequently contend that tho wine mentioned in the Scriptures was not fermented, there is perhaps reason to be- lieve that amongst the Uood Templar bodies may be members who are in X^v session of the secret of preparingskW juice of the grape in the manner our cor resp ondent refers to.
ROWING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
- ROWING. To THE EDITO». SIB,-Some time ago wa heard a great deal about rowing on Perth water. Two clubs were started simultaneously; one died without a struggle, the other strug- gles but is not quite dead. Now when the subject was first brought before the public it was generally responded to and I gladly gave roy support to this grand, healthy and manly exercise. A good deal of money was raised, boat houses built, first class expensive boats obtained from Melbourne,, and I was furnished with an elaborate code of rules-all ready for action. But the rowing men, where are they P AlasP I know not. The boats may be seen through the chinks of the boat house door but no sign of life. Hamlet without a Hamlet. Frequently when in the vicinity of the club's premises I have expected to see something done, but have been disappointed , so often that I have given up the idea. Now I should like to point out to the rowing men of this club--if there be any-that rowing is an art requiring considerab...

Fatal Teetotalism. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
Fatal Teetotalism. A paragraph which will possess interest for total abstainers appeared in the Lon- don Daily Telegraph in December last. It reads as follows : Oa Saturday the district medical officer re- ported to the Local Board,(Wyniford, Cheshire, on the sudden death of three men due, it was alleged, to cholera, they baring been engaged in unloading a Spaviah vessel, He stated that the deaths wore really owing to prolonged ex- posure and persistent refusal to drink spirit«. Being teetotalers, they drank nothing but tea with ginger in it. He was confident that their lives had been shortened in consequence of their abstinence. . .,. Now, if the doctor be right that these three men lost their lives through being teetotal, how many lives would he maia, tain are saved through the use of spirits P Probably he believes that roany thousands of lives are thus saved. On the other hand, how mauy lives are lost through the use of spirits f It would be useful to liave a balance struck, so t...

NORTHAM JOTTINGS. S -» . ? . I When I saw in your issue of the 9th ¡ inst, a communication' headed " Northam j Notes " I was in hopes that your new cor» j respondent weald have continued to give you the general sayings and doings of «mr community, recognising as I do the importance oE a district being kept before the public. I have nothing very sensa- tional to communicate. We have had more than a usual share of Christmas and New Year festivities and I think I can truly say^ that New Year has open- ed with fair prospects fer the future and that our social life is marked *with feelings of good will to all. Harvesting is nearly over and the re .suit fully bears out my previous assertion ! -the average of wheat will come up to j about 12 bushels, barley 20, oats the same, hay 20 cwt to the acre. Some reapes as much as 20 to 25 bushels to the acre, white the late some run down to 7. It is such years as the past test the real farmer. Hates for wheat rule at 3s. 6d., harley 2a. 9d. to 3s....
OUR ROADS BOARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
OUR ROADS BOARDS. THE Commission appointed fay Bis Ex- cellency the Governor to consider the matter of consolidating and amending th» various Road Acts in our statute books and to make suggestions upon tbe road question generally, bare had several sit tings and are, we understand, progressing: satisfactorily with their work. This Commission, besides the official members -Attorney General and Commissioner of Crown Lands-numbers such men as Mr. Maitland Brown, Mr, 8. S. Parker* Mr. Walter Padbury, Mr. J. H. Monger,, and Mr. Edm. Brockman-men who for many years havo had experience, as mem- bers and chairmeu of Hoads Boards, of the practical working of our Acts. The Government exercised a wise discretion in appointing this body of what we may rightly call ' experts ' to consider a ques- tion which has its difficulties, and which is of very great importance to the colo- nists. We have no doubt the result of the labours recently commenced will prove of much value to the country. " There's...
Larrikinism. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
Larrikinisni. - It is rery evident that the larrikin element in the sister colonies shows no signs of weakness. For several years the public have been regaled witbdescrip» tions of the outrages perpetrated by the bands of youthful ruffians who infest the etties of the neighbouring province«. One of the latest essays in «rime on the part of the members of this class was the attempt to rob the Smith Street branch of theiCommercial baqk at Collingwood, ?a full account of which appears, in another part of this issue. It wUl be seen that the four desperadoes failed to- accomplish their object, and that one of their number ' was taken into custody. Too much credit cannot be given to the plucky bank jn&nairer Mr. Hill for the courageous stolid he made agains* his assailants" It recalls the tale, which the bank managers of Melbourne are never tired of telling, of the fierce struggle between a bank burg- lar, and Mr. F. de J. Grunt some years ago. It is painful however to hear that t...
Protection in America. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
Protection in America. The Committee appointed by the Congress of the United States to inquire into the condition of trade has sent in a remarkable report. In their surrey of the world's labour and labourers, they make the unhetitatiug assertion that the workmen of free trade England are better off than those of any other country in Europe, or oren of America. The reason they assign for this must sound extra ordinary to American ears. Without the expression ot a doubt they ascribe lt to the superiority of free trade over protec- tion This declaration is the greatest triumph that the believers in free trade have achieved since the astonishing development of English business, mer- cantile and manufacturing, by land and by sea, which immediately followed the relaxation of tho trade restrictions of the British Custom House by Sin ROBEBT FEEL. How far this report may have any effect upon the American Electorate now remains to be seen. It is true that, concurrently with the congestion of ...
Dangerous Freaks. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
Dangerous Freaks« That accidente nave so frequently arisen through, persons attempting to enter a train in motion, and that offend- ers in that respect have, been fined for their breach of the law, did not prevent ( Slr. JOSEPH LOCKWOOD from foolishly imperilling his life at Fremantle on last Sunday night. After the train had start- ed from the Btation he made a jump for one of the carriages, and slipped. He clung to the buffers, and was held there by the stationmaster and two other men j until the train was stopped, and he was j rescued from his dangerous situation. The next day he was charged before the Police Magistrate who inflicted a heavv penalty, saying be was determined to put a stop to tue practice of getting into rail- way carriages in motion. _ Perhaps the recollection of the danger into which he was led by his recklessness, and also of the £6 7a. 6d in which he was mulcted, will deter not only MR LOCKWOOD for the future from committing a similar offence, j but may also a...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. I " J. A." The advantage of your sugges- tions is fully recognised, but office considera- tions make it impossible to carry them out for a couple of months. As to the' right of any man to close the ! ?ea shore at Funder's Bay or Hamelin Bay to anyone willing to " charter a coaster or vessel to bring them down goods, or take produce and goods of any kind away, other than timber," such a right cannot be given except by parliament, and has never been given in this colony that we knew of. To land materials on a jetty that is private pro- perty, without the permission of the owners it another question. " Inquirer." Such a farm as you describe ought to be a jrooi security. There is a New Loan and Discount Company advertised, Offices ; Hay street, Perth. But you must use your own discretion in treating with them, or any other body offering accommo- dation.
The western Mail SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
%\t Äteit Pail SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 188G. THE mont serious news comes to us from England. We learn by tele- gram that LORD SA&ISBUBY'K Govern- ment hare treated u defeat ou an amendment moved by Mr. JESSE COLLING'S HS an expression of want of confidence in tbe Ministry. Being loft in u minority of 79 they probably had no course open to them, short of resignation. The proposal was one relating to granting allotments of land to agricultural labourers. As LORD RANDOLPH CHURCHILL hus re- peatedly expressed himself in favour of doing something of the kind, though on a system differing in detail from Mr. CHAMBERLAIN'S Suggestion, it ts not very easy to see in the absence of further information why the late Government should Lave taken it so seriously. No doubt Mr. COLLINGS took care so to frame his amend meut as to leave no loophole j of escape for the waverers and trim- mers of the party. If this be so IiORD HABTINGTON'S voting against the amendment and with tbeConserva tives, a...
The Armstrong Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
The Armstrong Fund. ' In order that the Armstrong family might ia some way be recompensed for the annoyance and anxiety suffered bj- ! them, Mr. Poland, Q.C. one of the Crown Prosecutors, issued an appeal to the pub» lie with the object of raising funds to provide for the education of Eliza Arm* ; strong, and for the general assistance of i j her family. The appeal, it appears, has¿| been responded to very liberally. * A. . handsome sam has been raised, suo&crib- ? ere having been found not only in Great Britinn and Ireland, but in America and. elsewhere. The result of such liberality has been that Eliza Armstrong is BOW , placed for training and education in ia charitable institution at Wanstead, under the patronage of the Princess Louise, and the direction of the National Society for the Protection and Training of Young Girls. The funds will also admit of a dowry heine provided for her which is being placed out at interest until it can be paid ever to her. She is to remain...
The Noble Art. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
The Noble Art. According to reports that have lately received prominence in the chief English newspapers, the noble art of self defence is undergoing a revival in the shape of Eries fights. In every town in England, 1 oxing clubs are established and are well patronised. The passion for fisticuff« has not died out in the old country, nor will it probably ever do so, but it now takes the mild form of glove contests. A fight with bare knuckles for the Championship of England and £200 took place recently however, between Jem Smith of England and Jack Davis of America. The match, we are told, was the subject of " intense interest ' in sporting circles and upon its result a large amount of wagering depen- ded. A strong American contingent came over to witness the fight, which took place without the intervention of the police. Jem Smith is a London mau bred and born, is 22 years of age, stands 5ft. 8î inches high and weighed 13st. llb. Jack Davis is 26 years of age, 5ft. 9i inches high and...
A Contrast. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
A CoMtroflt. " Look on this picture and on that." ; The one represents Sir Roger Doughty I Tichborne arriving at his majority amidst i joyful celebrations, and entering society* as a wealthy baronet of high lineage and noteworthy fame-the other Arthur Orton, aiton Castrq, altos " Sir Boger Doughty Tichborne," receiving a summons issued àttheinstauceoftheGuardiansof the South Stoneham Union, requiring him to show cause why he should not maintain his wife who was resident within the workhouse. Many people ia England still believe that the Claimant was the real Sir Boger; there are many more who have only lost faith in him anting the last two years. On coming ont of prison, he made a, tour ! of England with the hope of raising I popular feeling and popular funds on his behalf. Gradually, however, he dropped ! into the show business, and latterly he har. been going the round of the Music Halls, exhibiting himself for a weekly salary. Even in this scheme he has fail- ed, as most people c...
The State of the City Roads. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
The State of the City Roads. Jt is a pity that it is sot possible to immediately act upon Cr. Harwood'« suggestion, made at the City Council, with respect to the employment of grarel in the construction of suburban roads. The present system of merely laying some broken Btooe for the repair of the roads in the city is little calculated to ensure a proper carriage way. Unprotected, in the absence of a proper coating, it often requires but little contact with the wheels of heavy carts, to ' completely pulverize the material into almost impalpable dust. A few windy day«, and then the road is little better than it was before the " re. Eairs" were effected. Could a good inding of gravel be laid over the surface it would set after a fall of ram, and the result would be that the road, although costing perhaps rather more than the present kind, would be of a more lasting and therefore more economical character. It is said that it ic the insufficiency of roiling stock which at present prevent...
FRUIT AS AN ARTICLE OFDAILY DIET! [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886
FRUIT AS AN ARTICLE OFDAILY j DIET! One of the most salutary tendencies of domestic management in our day is tba* ' which aims at assigning to fruit a favor- ed place ia our ordinary diet. The nu- trient value of such food, in virtne of ita component starches aud saccharine ma- terials, is generally admitted : and while these substances cannot be said to equal, in accumulated force the more solid in- gredients of meat and animal fat, they are similarly useful in their own degree, and have moreover, the advantage of greater digestibility. Their conversion within the tissues is also attended with less friction and pressure on the ! constructive machinery. The locally I stimulant action of many subacid fruits i on the mucous membrane deserves men- tion. Its control of a too active peptic ! secretion, and its influence of attraction exercised upon the alkaline and aperient intestinal juice are points of more than superficial importance. To this action fur« ther effects, which aid the ma...
