ATTACKS ON THE GOVERNOR [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

ATTACKS ON THE GOVERNOR A certain section of the Perth press, which has been remarkable for its venomous treatment of Sir Gerard Smith ever since his arrival in the colony, had tbe# egregiously bad taste to discharge a fresh volume of abuse at him on the very day of Lord Brassey's ariival in Perth. This law-and-order jour- nal, which is loyal to everything except the representative of the Sovereign, declared amongst other things that it is time that we had a voice in the selection of the gentlemen who are appointed to preside over ns. The suggestion in itself is good enough, but any " democratic " idea emanating from this particular source is always open to the gravest sus- picion, and it appears to us that this is only another attempt to in- duce the. democracy of this colony to become a tool in the hands of those who have their own cutlery to sharpen. Whatever may be said of the personal merits or demerits of Sir Gerard Smith, he certainly does not deserve the treatment he is now ...

THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT IT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT IT. (Br BUNGARRA.) The recent public calamity which occurred last week, and which cast a gloom over the country as opaque as that which covers the Public Works Department, is still the theme of con- versation and conjecture in Perth and on the goldfields. Some authentic account by an eye-witness may be of in- terest in laying the dust and clearing the air. Of course I allude to the mis- understanding in the Parliament House kitchen between the head housekeeper and the cook. The facts of the matter are simply these:-So long had the housekeeper been employed that she practically ran the whole she-bang to suit herself, and as the cook was aggressive and- owned to a flow of Italian blood from County Tipp-rary in her veins, it was found necessary to post up on the back of the kitchen door a set of rules for the guidance of the establishment. There were 102 of them exactly, and, having nailed them up, the good old lady went away to attend some cookery classes in anoth...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. Amidst ail the volâmes ol rubbish which have been .tippec upon the public ever since th« Kalgoorlie outbreak, most people appear to have lost sight of thc real issues. We are glad to coan! amongst the exceptions the Wesi Australian^ whose articles have been mat ked by a judicial im- partiality which is very refresh- ing by contrast with the wild at- tempts toembitterpublic feeling in- dulged in by its discredited rival . Sir John Forrest, too, is not free from a suspicion of talking unde- niable fustian.- He receives one dig in the ribs, according to his own account, and then quotes, " Father, forgive them, for they ^ know not what they do !" Bah ! * . * * What about the unfortunates who have been sent to Fremantle by an infuriated and panic-stricken Warden, who dishonors the Bench by declaring that he.himself was a witness of one man's complicity in the riot ? If he was a witness, what right has he upon the Bench ? The sentences Hare has imposed are altogether extr...

GOATS AND NUTS. (PRINCIPALLY GOATS.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

COATS AND NUTS, (PBINCIPAMiY GOATS.) (BY GIMLET WOOD.) When the street arabs who sell the SUNDAY TIMES wish to express their disbelief in any given yarn, they commonly remark in their own classic jargon-" Oh ! 'e's I bin staffln' ver." A good deal oí " stuffing" at times emanates from the Lands Dspartment, and is very often swallowed by an unthinking and usually sceptical public. The public of Western Australia has lately been introduced to a huge " stuff," but as it has the seal of Ministerial approval, it has been swallowed as ns aal without com- ment. One, Mr. Victor, was " stuffed " in India ; he passed it on to Mr. Ednie Brown, who in turn passes it on to Mr. Throssell, Commissioner for Crown Lands aud Minister for Agricul- ture, who duly passes it on to the press, who pass it on to the pnblic, who accept a screaming joke with the stolidity of a Bunbury pump- kin. But here is the thing itself, taken from a daily paper : The Conservator of Forests, Mr. J. Ednie Brown, recently r...

A COLUMN OF CONDOLENCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 3 April 1898

A COLUMN OF CONDOLENCES, (Br Ous SPECIAL WEEPER.) One of the Mongers thanks God that none of the Kalgoorlie rioters were West Australians. All the sandgropers who had spirit enough to riot were hanged *' years ago,' as Harvey puts it. # # * H. B. Lefroy's "heart went ont " to Sir John when he heard of the riot. If Lefroy had been pre- sent bis heart would have got no further than his mouth. # * # Allnutt, of Bunbury (whoever he is), says that " the miners have gone down to zero in his estima- tion." This ought to increase the percentage of suicides on the gold- fields. # # * Bush, of Geraldton, says that " hundreds of Northerners deeply regret that the cut« who have, from a safe distance, worked up this un-British riot, cannot be shot at sight." Northerners are a good deal more accustomed to shooting blacks at sight-also from a safe distance. # ? # - * Soap-boiler D'Estampes states that if he had been present (which he wasn't) and had firearms (which he hadn't) he would have used th...

It is far below our standard, as a glance at our poetry will show. Learn the art of rhyming first; your rhymes are false and unmelodious. We have already engaged our laureate, thanks. E.

FEDERATION. A. YELL FROM YORK, f East, West and South Australia's land Must join together hand in hand, A Greater Britain here should rise, Beneath the sunny Southern skies. We have it by Divine command, " A house divided cannot stand;" Australia, rich, united, free. Is what we hope and long to see. South Australia has the wheat, The copper, and the wine so sweet ; Victoria, " Cabbage Garden " named, For produce far and wide is famed. New South Wales has herds, and flocks, And coal to fill Australia's docks; Queensland, too, can follow suit, With sugar, gold,, and tropic fruit. Tasmania's hops and jams are sweet. So is New Zealand's frozen meat ; While West Australia's land of gold A high position long shall hold. A bounteous land so well provided, By man should never be divided ; Then let us Federated be, A nation loyal, brave and free. J.M. York, W.A.

THE HOLIDAYS IN ADELAIDE. ADELAIDE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

THE HOLIDAYS IN ADELAIDE j ADELAIDE, Saturday. Very little business was done to-day, j all warehouses and most of the big shops being closed, while there were i only a few public amusements. The military encampment on Glenelg-road attracted a large number of spectators. The defence forces were engaged in preventing an imaginary foe from cap- turing Adelaide. The Governor visited the camp during the afternoon and watched the manouvres of the men. Although it is very unusual for the Governor to attend horse races, he will be present at the Onkaparinga meeting on Monday. It is the intention of the North Fremantle Sailing Club, to hold a regatta on Easter Monday. Several of the Perth boats intend competing. At the recent St. Ignatius' Col- lege Begatta (N.S.W.) the two principal races of the day, the Senior Sculls, were won by J. J. Daly, of the Mercantile Club, with J. L Baunister second, and the Senior Eight-oar Race resulted in a victory for the Glebe Bowing Club, with University 2, ...

YACHTING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

YACHTING NOTES (Br " FLYING JIB.") An ideal yachting day greeted the Perth Flying Squadron boats as they assembled on Saturday, April 2, off Mill Point to compete tor Mr. Dimant's (Bon Marché) Cop. * * # ' A fine southerly breeze soon caused white caps to appear, and there was every promise of a rattling good race. * * * i When the flag fell at 3.25 the Empress (scratch), with a splendid windward position, crossed the line first, then the Inez (6min.), followed closely by the Ventura (2niin.), the latter boat having one cringle hauled 'down. On the Way to Crawley buoy the boats had all the wind they wanted, the Empress especially. The Inez, who was sailing remarkably well, rounded at 3.43, followed 30sec. later by the Ventura, and the Empress at 3.44. Out to the Hump Buoy it was a long leg and a short one,.and here, the Ventura gradually overhauled and passed the Inez, both of the latter boats over-reaching the buoy. * # # A course was then laid for the Brick-landing buoy, but upon ...

COLONIAL MUTUAL SOCIETY. The Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Society, Limited, yesterday gave a semi-official opening of their new pre- mises, St. George's Terrace, in the presence of a large number of guests. The General Manager, in addressing those present, said he thanked the gen- tlemen present for the cordial manner in which they had drunk the toast of success to the Society, coupled with the name of himself. He was pleased to see such a gathering of the influential men of W. A., and highly gratified, per- sonally, at the cordial reception given to him.

TORTS AND RETORTS. (MOSTLY RETORTS). [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

TORTS AND RETORTS. (MOSTLY KETOBTS). " Six months in irons "is the neat sentence pronounced by Visiting-Magistrate Fairbairn on the poor devil who made a very natural attempt to escape from Fremantle Gaol. Will a worm try to wriggle out of the fire, or will a dog bolt from its kennel if the chain is loose? If flog- ging and putting in irons can keep men in prison, what is the use of warders, turnkeys, bolts, bars, locks and keys ? It all happened in about six minutes, and the re- sult is a month for each minute. Fairbairn has evidently been in- fluenced by the expression of pub- lic indignation against the sentence of brutal severity which he passed upon the two last attempting, escapes from Fremintle Gaol. He did not order a flogging of 36 lashes this time, and so far human sentiment has prevailed against a harsh and cinel prison discipline. But is not the sentence of " six months in irons'' "something that might again justly evoke public indignation ? The persons who ought to have...

The contract is being carried out by Messrs. Carroll and Sons, Mr. Bates being- simply em- ployed by Messrs. Carroll to perform a certain portion of the work. I trust that our track will fulfil ott yon have said of it, though it is a fairly large order, and when it is completed shall be pleased if you will report on it. Meantime I write this in fairness to the real contractors, on whom lies the onus, abd to whom the credit of the work- manship is due.

A BRIEF STATEMENT OF THE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

A BRIEF STATEMENT OF THE CASE. Although the case for and against the alluvial digger has been stated ad nauseam, it has as a rale been explained either at such great length or so partially that a handy epitome of the arguments pro and con did not, up to recently, exist A correspondent in the Broad Arrow Standard has, however, per- formed this task for the digger most excellently, and we have pleasure in presenting this handy synopsis to our leaders : 1. The dual title is a great advance on the legislation of the other colonies, and if honestly administered need cause no friction between leaseholder and dryblower. The diggers religiously regard the 50ft. from a known reef as the property of the leaseholder, and even if they discover gold within that, limit will readily leave when it is pointed out that they are trespassing. 2. To claim all within tibe four corner pegs of a lease as reef is ridicu- lous in the extreme, and is nothing : but an attempt to " get at " the public. 3. The d...
