CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

CYNICAL SYNOPSIS.   "All the venal crowd." —BYRON.   In the grip Ministers—their salaries.   Pickling process—preparing for Parliament. Once more Volcanic Seddon has erupted.   This time at Durban. There he outlined the policy of the Empire.   According to English authorities, Hope- toun retires because the State Governors are   poking their fingers in his particular pie. It is reported that Saunders' defeat by Wright cost the former gentleman as many hundreds as the number of votes he was beaten by.   An English exchange says tariffs are the   price which nations pay for keeping up the the military system and filling the earth   with violence. The Leederville residents are indignant at   the neglect of the roads and pavements whilst the council is voting money for the "Mayor's portion."   There are people in Perth who are preach- &nb...

VERSE—AND WORSE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

VERSE—AND WORSE   ____   "To cheat thee of a sigh, Or charm thee to a tear."   --Moore   In Hay-street. Groper: "Nice drop of rain lately." Sloper, an ardent cricket enthusiast: "Yes, but I hope it won't spoil next Thursday's Test Match."!!     . . . . To those who saw "The Runaway Girl" it is howlingly funny that the Westralian manager of Cook's Tourist Co. was the first of a large crowd to be prosecuted over the Theatre Royal lavatories case. "Follow the Man from Cooks"!!     . . . .   Mrs. Tracey was raging violently anent   Solicitor Browse.

HIS MAJESTY THE BEAK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

It may have been through Illingworth, tbe Tuckanarra Toad, Or Rason, Kingsmill, Gregory, or Leake. Or perhaps he'll say, like Topsy, who sus- pected that she "growed," Nature crowned him as His Majesty the Beak. There are many of him sitting now in judg- ment on the drunk, But who'd p'r'aps be more at home within the dock,       Including those who from the East were forced to do a bunk,           After taking what a sportsman calls "the   knock."

[?]ANDAKOT SETTLERS GOVERNMENT NEGLECT. A RAILWAY NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

"One Who Knows" writes:—It seems to me that the settlers of   Jandakot, alter a long and patient wait of six years, are to have a job perpetrated on them which is unparal- leled in the history of W.A. by being deprived of their railway, which   would connect Fremantle with Arma- dale. This is evidently to suit a Lon- don syndicate of Doodlers who own 243,038 acres of worthless country over which a crow scarcely ever flies. I am also led to believe that the head of the present Government is the agent   and attorney for that company. I may also state that there is A Certain M.L.A.,   signing himself J.J.H., who has deeply     interested himself on that question on account of large property influences.     Now, Sir, if this line is constructed       from Fremantle—Case Point-Armadale —it will pass through 9 miles of worthless country without a s...

EIGHT HOURS' WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

"Advance" writes:—Eight hours'     work a day in the Commonwealth and celebration of that glorious day seems to me a public falsehood, as it is far from being observed in practice. In this very city of Perth we have men, women, and children in almost every walk of life working over eight hours a day, while there are many others who cannot get a day's work. Surely some- thing could be done to remedy such a   state of things. I know of a men who would prefer to work just the eight hours, but who are compelled by their employers to work over that time, and on their refusiing to do so they are instantly dismissed.

HOW IT WORKED. A RAILWAY ALLEG[?]RY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

"Vagabond writes:--Edward I.   Rex resigned in the year ----,and he had as chief secretary Daniel, a very conscientious man, Lucifer having been deposed some time previous to subordinate position. He (the King) also had another bottle-washer, whom we will call Jack Sprat. Jack was of a very particular composition--you might lead him, but he wasn't drivable. However, to be brief, Jack generally kept to himself, and with the exception of an occasional outburst of temper, was a fairly well-conducted individual, and took notes daily of how the King's household was conducted. Lucifer, in Daniel's absence, was very fond of Prying into the Secrets of the inner temple. Every day at noon would he go and fossick through the secretary's papers, and he was even bold enough to handle and criticise the King's private memoranda before they reached the hands of his chief secretary, and would at times indulge in a tirade of invective and abuse against incompetence or otherwise of the wi...

POLICE DEPRAVITY. SCREENING SECRETIVE SINNERS. THE OBSCENITIES AT FREMANTLE. ZARZUELA OF ZEITSCH THE ZANY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

POLICE DEPRAVITY. SCREENING SECRETIVE SINNERS. ____   THE OBSCENITIES AT FREMANTLE. ZARZUELA OF ZEITSCH THE ZANY. It is anything but an agreeable task which   our plain duty now demands us to perform. We were put to the regrettable necessity a few weeks ago (in our issue of the 27th   April) to make public the salacious obscenity   of some of our soldiers who left Fremantle on the early morning of Sunday, April 20 by   the troopship Englishman. The disgrace   inflicted on the State by these libidinous de- fenders (sic) of the Empire, the farce of sending away such men to uphold England's       honor, and the danger revealed in despatch- ing such scallywags to the farms in charge of defenceless Boer woomen on the lonely veldt make it imperative that we should speak out plainly, even at the risk of shocking public sentiment and disturbing the calm of domestic delicacy. ...

BUNBURY MISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

BUNBURY MISERS.   ___               BY BULLSWOOL, If the "Messenger from Mars" would only     come to this "Queen City of the South- West" and make the champion mean man disgorge part or all of his wealth, an ever- lasting blessing would be conferred upon us. This man, who left his country for his country's good, is in receipt of a   shade less than f 1,000 yearly for shop and   house rents ; yet some of his relations have   a struggle to exist, while this old miser and his wife never as much as raise a finger let alone shed a tear, to help them. I will join his wife with him, and designate them   the miserly pair. By way of illustration I will show one or two of their dealings, which should prove their grand mastership   in miserliness. The Great Salvarmy rent or lease their ramshackle old ...

ALIEN AUSTRALIA. JAPS AND MALAYS. CHINESE MINERS. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

___ JAPS AND MALAYS CHINESE MINERS   BY MINDIRRINIA   NO. II.     In the preceding article I devoted my remarks mainly to the Chinese at Port Darwin, or, to be more correct, in the city of Palmerston, concluding with a hanging incident. Accepting that as an appropriate drop-scene, I propose to leave the Chinese for a moment and give a little attention to another phase of the North Australian Asiatic question. The Jap. came first to Palmerston as the proprietor of negotiable immoralities; just a few males and a half- dozen or so of the other sex. Then a spasm in pearling quickly jumped the number (of the males) up to hundreds. The Chinamen never at any time pretended to take an interest in so speculative an industry as pearl-shelling, while the   Little Brown Man       fairly revels in it; and it was not long   before he had boats of his own, together with a virtual mo...

For the Farmers. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

Bunbury.—To make bird-lime put half a pint of linseed oil in an old pot and boil over a slow fire, stirring occasion- ally until it thickens as much as required,       which may be known by cooling the stir- ring stick in water and testing it with the       fingers. It is best made rather hard, and then poured into cold water. It can be     brought back to the consistence required     by the addition of a little Stockholm tar.     The vessel in which the linseed is boiled           should not be more...

MANURES FOR POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

Any quantity of farm yard manure, from 15 to 18 tons per acre, can profitably be applied to land for this crop. Three cwt.   of superphosphate, 1cwt. of sulphate of am- onia and 2cwt. of kainit per acre, are a most valuable dressing to land where good potatoes are desired. Another good dres- sing consists of lewt; each of kainit and nitrate of soda, ½cwf. of iron sulphate and 2cwt. of mineral superphosphate per acre.

A DEPARTED STOCK JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

A DEPARTED STOCK JUDGE     R. Southee writes:—I was sorry to see     in a recent issue the notification of G. Vowle's death. I had the pleasure of being     intimate with him from 1856 to 1864, when he and Tom Vowles carried on the business of slaughtermen and cattle dealers. Both brothers were very good judges of all kinds of stock and sportsmen in the best and broadcast term. They were both good horse- men with a particular natty way of sitting there charges. George was, in quiet and unostentatious way, a most benevolent man and a good chum to any he took to. Poor fellow, he has been suffering a great deal for some years, but when I knew George he   did not know what it was to be a day off-colour.

SPLICING WIRE FOR WIRE FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

I stumbled on to a trick the other day (says J.E. Wing, in the Ohio Farmer) that would have been worth a good many dollars   to me had I known it in the beginning of my work with wire. I have always used             the telegraph lineman's splice, which is   made by twisting the ends tightly around the main wire a good many coils. To do this right requires a special tool to hold the wire, although a monkey wrench will answer very well. It is the best splice for a telegraph wire, for the points of contact are numerous, and it is soldered altogether by the linesman, but it is slow to make and does not always hold unless very carefully made. I do not make that splice any more. I have a better splice that can be made with no tools except the bare hands or pliers—a   splice that will never give way, but, in fact, the harder it is pulled the better it will hold, and it look...

ORCHARD WORK. HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. No. II. Subsoiling. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

BY J.C. BLACKMORE AND S. I. FITCH (New Zealand Experts). SUBSOILING             Pracrtical experience teaches that the ex- cess of water in soils must be got rid of before crops can be successfully grown. Therefore, when land is selected for an orchard where either the surface or subsoil   is too compact in texture to allow the rain-   water to percolate through it, something must be done to modify the natural char- acter of the soil. The best means of accom- plishing this must be considered, and determined according to the extent and local condition of the soil to be dealt with. After under-draining, which should be done in the first place, further improvement may be brought about by ploughing and sub- soiling to a uniform depth, and also, when available, by the introduction of other materials. For instance, heavy, close and     compact land may be impro...

BUSINESS NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

BUSINESS NOTICES.   San Toy sings "It's nice to be a boy," and further that "It's nice to be a girl some- times." It is nice to be either a girl or a boy, or a man or a woman just now, especi- ally if one requires a pair of boots, because Messrs. Ranford Bros. and Simpson, of the Perth Boot Mart, Barrack-street, have pur- chased the entire stock of boots and shoes of the Elite Boot Company, central Hay-street, and are disposing of it at both these estab- lishments at greatly reduced prices during what they term "the sale of the century." The sale began last Thursday and will con- tinue until further notice.   When a Freemantle T. P. O'Connor arises to write pars "mainly about people" Major Byrne will certainly affortd "copy" for numerous catchy reminiscences. The Ex Queenslander is still actively engaged in pushing St. Emil Wines, whilst as a "side line" he advertises this week that one of the best hotels in the State can be secured on easy terms, provided ...

A USEFUL FIRE-[?]ATER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

The fire-beater shown in our sketch is one in use at Bolindavale Estate (Vic.), and has proved thoroughly trustworth wherever it has been tried. It consists of a piece of stout bullock hide 2ft. long by 16in. broad. It is inserted in a cut made in the end of an ash fork handle, and secured by a couple of bolts and nuts. (B). There are two pieces of hoop- iron across the hide, secured by rivets, but Mr. R. Clarke has arrived at the conclusion that the beater acts as well without the hoopiron. Though the hide stands well, at times the beaters become shrivelled, and this winter Mr. Clarke intends tanning a couple of hides on the estate, as he believes leather fire-beaters would last for many years. His suggestion that the local shire council should have a large number of these fire-beaters   ready for use on any serious emergency is worth the consideration of municipalities in all parts of the country.         &nb...

LOCO. DEPARTMENT. A DREAM. BY THE SEER OF THE Loco. B[?]ANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

A DREAM. BY THE SEER OF THE LOCO. BRANCH. After sleeping three years, I awoke on the first day of July, 1905, to find a great and might change had taken   place during my long sleep. Many of the dear old landmarks had been swept   away for ever. Unsightly hovels had   given place to palatial dwellings, the   old-time groper sat bewailing the metamorphosis of his once beloved   filthy dens. The most striking of all transformations, however, were to be found in the management of our rail-   ways. The weeds and incapable heads   of departments were all wiped out.   The whole system was reorganised.   Political influence and interference had got their quietus, the whole of the supervision being under the manage- ment of an up-to-date reformer, whose greatest abhorrence was "red-tape fads." The great men, bullies, mud- dlers, and boodlers were an unknown   qua...

ST. HELENA PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

ST. HELENA PRISONERS. A Jamestown (St. Helena) telegram of March 6 says:—During the past   month two incidents have occurred at the prisoners' camps—one at Deadwood   and the other at Broadbottom. A     prisoner was shot at Deadwood by a sentry on February 13th, and died next morning. He was a young fellow, a boy rather than a man, who had previously been employed by one of farmers and dismissed for rascality.   He had crawled through the wires of the camp fence to steal oil from drums standing near the camp, and being observed by the guard and ordered "hands up" refused to stop but tried to get back and was shot. Before dying next morning he confessed that it   Was His Own Fault. The details of the other affair at Broadbottom are obscure, and no in- formation is obtainable concerning it from official sources. From what can be gathered from those in the camp it appears that on the Saturday night immediatel...
