THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, APRIL 3, 1898. THE TRIUMPH OF THE DIGGERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN gimtöag jinxes. SUNDAY, APKIL 3, 1898. THE TRIUMPH OF THE DIGGERS. At last the Government have hearkened to the voices of common sense and common justice, and have resorted to the usual termina- tion of their acts of aggression-a " climb down." It is a curious and somewhat humiliating coincidence that at the very time Mr. Witte- noom was engaged in excusing his action at Geraldton-for he cannot defend it-the Premiershould have been drafting the .minute which led to its cancellation. The amendment to clause 103 is now à thing of the past, and we aro right glad to get rid of it-for the time being. * * # For it must be remembered that we have no cause to be grateful to the Ministry for this act of tardy justice. It is useless, in face of what Mr. Wittenoom has publicly declared, for Sir John Forrest to attempt to shirk his responsibility. We have the damn- ing fact that the Premier was con- sulted during the last weëk of last Session, and that fae then, instead of s...

ECHOES AND EPISODES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

ECHOES ANO EPISODES. (By SCALPEM.) In the Choctaw Indian country, an American archaeologist has dis- covered a burial ground, with the bones of prehistoric persons to the number of 75,000. Nearly all of them have their skulls smashed with weapons and missiles ; which fact gives us a pleasing prehis- toric peep into the gentle ways of our ancestors. Itis as well, too, that they have been discovered, because building is extending in America, and the people who should happen to be dwelling on that spot when the end of the world comes, would be vastly inconvenienced by the jostling of those 75,000 unsus- pected persons coming np from below. # * * I take the following billet doux from an English paper: Jjong since hast thou my heart entirely 1. O, give me thine; thou hast no use for 2.

TELEG APHIC INTERRUPTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

TELEG APHIC INTER- RUPTION. The Telegraph Department states that the Intercolonial line between Eucla and Adelaide is an i has been working badly all day, therefore our budget of racing from Hawkesbury N.S.W.) and Aspendale (Vic), has not yet reached us. A well-known officer of the force in a certain port in W. A., who is known as a trick cyclist, had a rather funny ex- perience recently. - He was showing some of his capabilities in riding up a narrow footpath, the road at this spot not being available owing to repairs. The officer in blue was reading some- thing in a tobacconist's window, when he was capsized In the road amongst tar, sand, etc. It is needless to say that it caused no end of amusement amongst his brother officers. Particular notice is drawn to the advertisement of the Gannet excursion appearing in this week's issue. The owners of the Gannet having kindly given the use of their boat for a moon- light trip on Wednesday night for the benefit of the Children's Hospital ...

A FEMALE FIEND WHO BATHED IN HUMAN BLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

A FEMALE FIEND WHO BATHED IN HUMAN BLOOD. A book published at Breslau, Ger- many, devotes some space to the career of a beautiful Hungarian countess {Elizabeth Bathori), who murdered 650 young girls in six years and finally died in prison for her crimes. It is generally taken as a revolting thing when a woman does murder, but this woman made the circumstance of her wholesale slaughter more horrify- ing by bathing her hands and face in the warm blood of her victims to in- crease her beauty, and it is said that out of this bath of blood her face came th i freshest and mobt brilliantly beauti- ful in all the austrian empire. This is no tale from the " Arabian Nights," but a well-authenticated bit of history. The diabolical crimes of this woman have been made a psychological study by the author of the book, the cele- brated Herr Von Eisberg, of Breslau, j who,before beginning his blood-curdling task, fortified himself with authentic documents, autographs of the criminal, and papers from...

ALLEGED NON-PAYMENT OF WAGES. IN THE NORTH-WEST. THE PORT HEADLAND CONTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

ALLEGED NON-PAYMENT OF WAGES. IN THE NOBTH-WEST. THE PO BT HEADLAND CONTRACT. As you were so kind as to interview the Minister of Public Works on behalf of the workers on this contract (of which I am one), I beg to point out to yon the very unjust (T may say false) manner in, which we have been treated by the Department. Government sent UB distinct wires that incoming contractors would pay wages (less only amount advanced for rations by Government)-vide wires M. E. Juli to Patrick Ey an-22 j 12 j 37,1 j 2 | 98, and.41 I j 98. The form of payment tendered by Messrs. Galbraith and Co., and accepted hy most of us (for we were truly starved out), took the form of one half now and one-half when road is finished, a most visionary period, de- ducting all contractors' stores, and taking no account whatever of ova-lost time-nearly four months-spent in a state of semi-ttarvation. Can nothing more be done, or do not. Government owe us some compensa- tion ? J. KADCLIFFE DIKSDALE. Soeboorne, Mar...

BOOKS AND THINGS. THE LATE JAMES PAYN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

BOOKS AND THINGS. (BY " Qui© NUNC") THE LATE JAMES PAYN. The cable announcing the death of the well-known novelist and journalist James Payn will be read hy many people in Australia, to whom the departed writer was known only through his books, with a feeling akin to the sorrow felt for the loss of an old friend. To the writer acquainted with his I delightful personality the news came as a distinct shock, although Mr. Payn had almost reached his three score and ten years. Mr. Payn was devoted to his fervfciioion; ""ïir"- "Was" "his "proudf boast that if he had to live twenty lives he would choose no other. In his " Gleams of Memory " he writes : " It is the brightest and mo3t genial of all of them, and so far, at least, as my experience goes, the most free from jealousies and acrimonies. There are times, of course, when one would like to sentence a critic to be pot to death to " slow music," but I have never felt inclined 'to put my knife'-unless it was the paper knife-into any of m...

SATURDAY'S LATEST. THE ALLUVIAL AGITATION THE DECISION OF THE MINISTRY. A MINISTERIAL MINUTE. A DlGOEBS* VlCTOKY. A special meeting of the Cabinet was held on Friday afternoon, at which the alluvial question was thoroughly dis- cussed, and an adjournment made to yesterday (Saturday), when at 12 (noon) the .Executive Council met and con- sidered a minute on the whole subject drawn by the Premier.

TORTS AND RETORTS. (MOSTLY RETORTS). [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

TORTS AND RETORTS. (HOSTLY BETORTS). " Holy Adelaide," we may place beside that, "Puritanical Mel- bourne." Adelaide is renowned for its religious revivals, and Mel- bourne for its observance of the Sabbath. Should an unfortunate cabby be caught in driving past a kirk at à quicker pace than walk- ing on the Sabbath, he is forth- with brought before the magistrate and fined. The Renton! and McEachren element which has asserted itself in victoria has made its influence felt to an extent that makes Marvellous Melbourne a city of gloom on the Snnday. We are now informed of " a dairyman who was fined os. and 21s. costs for selling milk on the Sabbath" They verily keep the Sabbath, and everything else that they can lay their hands on in Melbourne.* * * * Lord Brassey knew what he was talking about as an old Admiralty man, and as an old Parliamen- tarian, when speaking of the policy of Lord Salisbury's Go- vernment and the preparedness of Great Britain for war " against any combination tha...

CURRENT COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

CURRENT COMMENTS. (BY STYLUS ) Mr. Maitland Brown, the Resi- dent Magistrate at Geraldton, availing himself of an opportunity for cheap self-advertisement (as scores besides him have done), tele- graphed to Sir John Forrest his sympathy in i he terms of a hys- terical sehool-girl. Such expres- sions as " Oh, my God !" may be excusable in younger members of the female sex. at the sudden noise of a pistol or something of the kind, but they do not read well in newspapers when they express the condolences of a gentleman holding a dignified position. . # # * The hysterical effusion of this magnate appears all the more ludicrous, because it is followed by a school-boy quotation'"from one of Macaulay's classical odes. The courage of an . old Roman general was what may be called courage. Sir John was either en- tirely destitute of that quality, or the newspapers have greatly maligned him. We are told of "the utter collapse of the Pre [ mier," of his all but fainting away in the railway carr...

The World of Cricket. "When I says 'Hout!'—hout you goes." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

?ïje WLOTIQ oí Cricket, " When I says * Hout ! *-bout you goes." At the an anal dinner of the Scarborough -Cricket Club (Eng- land), Lord Hawke, the captain of the Yorkshire County team, ex-^ pressed regret at Yorkshire's not winning the championship. Bowl- ing, he said, had been' their weak feature, bowlers with the devil of George Freeman, Tom Emmett or George Ulyett being badly re- quired. Lord Hawke expressed surprise that a man like Peel should have played in only 15 matchee, and he regretted that Peel who had played for his county for 17 years,and had been the recipient of a magnificent benefit, should no longer be at their service. He had been kind to Peel, had given him his sympathy, and done his best for him, bat kindness could not go on foi- ever, and so long as he (the speaker) remained captain of the Yorkshire team Peel would not appear in Yorkshire county cricket. : * * * MUJII sn rp rise and a consider- able amount of regret has been expressed at Peel not having been i...
