CURRENT COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

CURRENT COMMENTS. (Br "STTOUS.") "Massa, don't shoot ; Fií climb down!" So said the fugitive nigger boy to his pursuing master. The coon had taken refuge on the top bough of a high 4ree¿ and the master was aiming at him with a rifle. The proposal to climb down rather than be shot at and have an ugly fall was ^vise under the cir- cumstances. This story points a moral, and we need not go far to seek it. The climb down of our Government from the untenable position they had taken np, re the amendment of the 103rd clause in the Gold-Mining Act, was a neces- sary, if also a sensible, move ; but the " climb down *' might have been done with less apparent fear of being shot at. Of course, the words " being shot at " are used in a Pickwickian sense. So far, nothing worse than an old gingham has been used, and the worst that has happened has been the now historical " poke in the ribs.** i # # Not only should the alluvial miners on the goldfields be con- gratulated on the manner in which they ...

OUR CONTRIBUTORS. A QUESTION OF COPYRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

O CB CONTRIBUTORS. A QUESTION OP COPYRIGHT. It is no secret to our readers that we have lately been compelled to take very drastic measures in connection with the management of the SUNDAY TIMES. That these proceedings will be justified by the legal action shortly to eventuate is our belief, but in the meantime we are being subjected to every form of petty persecution which can be conceh ed by malicious minds. Amongst ether events, our readers will remember that a certainseries of pseudo- nyms were published in the West Aus- tralian as those of contributors who had seceded from our service, but we have since learned that many of these were pnblished without the authority of those whose work they represented. Since then we have received the follow- . ing letter : Colonial Mutual Chambers. Perth, April 7, 1898. F. C. B. VOSPEB, ESQ., Manager SUNDAY TIMES, Perth, Dear Sir,-I have been instructed by Mr. E. Newton M'Culloch to demand from you the payment of the sum of SA 11s., being the a...

THE STATE OF FREMANTLE GAOL. ALLEGED CASE OF ERYSIPELAS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

THE STATE OP FREMANTLE GAOL. ALLEGED CASE OF ERYSIPELAS. A Fremantle correspondent, who ap- pears well acquainted with the inner woikimrs of the local gaol, sends us the following : ! There is at the present moment in cell 7A a prisoner, who was admitted on or about March 21, rotten with erysipelas. i He was bathed in the bath used by all prisoners, wiped on a towel which, in all ! probability, would be usod by others, his clothes taken away and thrown i among those of other prisoners, just as they came off him. His towel he has ' been using for the past week was this morning put with the other ditty I clothes for the wash. His pint pot is j dipped into the same bucket of water from which all the prisoners on " A " lauding get their drinking water.. I regret, in one way, not being able to complete the picture by being able to inform you that his cell and bedding are allowed to remain iu statu quo for the reception of any prisoners who may be dumped hereafter into 7A. 7A is quite con...

THE POET HEDLAND CONTRACT [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

THE POET HEDLAND CONTRACT Sir,-I am enclosing to you a copy pf the manner in which a moiety of wages earned, by me as a labourer on the Port Headland-Marble Bar Road Causeway, and Embankment Works Contract has been satisfied. The original contractor, William Duusford, of Marble Bar, went insol- vent after the first three months. During the time that he had the contract he drew somethingorer ¿61,100 to £1,200 against work done and plant. Of this amount he only disbursed amongst us, his men, on account ana wages £uk) in cash. After the first three months we refused to work unless we, the workmen, were paid the balance of wages due to us-some £1,100 odd. The work then hung in abeyance until the two principal creditors for stores supplied to Mr. Dunsford steppedin,and, taking his liabilities over, undertook to carry out ,$he work. The names of his creditors were the North-West Mercan tile Co., of Roebourne and Cossack, and F. Meagher, trading under the name of Galbraith and Co., of Coss...

[?]enings From Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

(Bbetthtíjs ffrottt lorne. (BY " PLAYGOER.") " Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." In the old, old days, when that amusing Sunday - school book known as the Bible was written, it was, it seems, the custom to put the good wine before the guests first and the ordinary snake-juice last. At Cremorne the practice is reversed, and the fiat and stale is usually served up first. Happily the small beer of the show is dis- pensed by a buxom Hebe whose ample personal charms make some amends for the anachronistic character of bei* songs and her lack of capacity as to both singing and dancing. # ? * # This tempered calamity in petti- coats is followed by the inimitable imitator, Mr. James Harvey, who imitates all things under heaven save himself. As the pathetic re- ceipt concerning the mother and her offspring who sojourned at the wayside pub. is so much appreci- ated, it would be no bad thing if the artist were to give us an imi- tation of Mr. James Harvey in the act of delivering the r...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, APRIL 10, 1898. FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN g>uttöag Hirnes. SUNDAY, APRIL 10, 1898. FEDERATION. Mr. G. T. Simpson, M.L.A., bas come forward with the suggestion that a Federation League should be formed in Western Australia. To such an idea we give our heartiest support. It is high time that we abandoned those parochial ideas by which t his colony has been too long dominated, and that they gave place to genuine national feel- ing. After a careful perusal of the Commonwealth Bill we have come to the conclusion that a more liberal and democratic constitution has never yet. received the ap- proval ora representative assembly. Others may have been devised, which give more power to the people, but paper constitutions are proverbially of little account. Upon the present Bill there has ; been brought to bear the united . wisdom and expérience of all the I best men in Australia, who have I had the advantage also of in I télUgently considering and discuss- ing the history of the varions other federations which n...

SIR JOHN FORREST A NATIONALIST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

SIR JOHN FORREST A NATIONALIST. At the banquet whieh was tendered to Mr.-E. H. Wittenoom, in the Stock Exchange last Tuesday m«jht, the Pre niier ($ir John Forrest), in responding to the toast ot" "The Ministry," referred to the question of federation. The Premier said that allusion had been made to the question of federation of the Australasian colonies. There was no doubt that the Stock Exchange in its principles must believe in federa- tion, because it had business in all parts of the world. The Stock Ex- changes, were federated ; at any rate, they had a common interest or union, whether in one part of Australia or the old country. He wished to take the opportunity of speaking in regard to this great question. He believed it would be useless for them to think of federating unless all the other colonies also federated, . That would be known in a short time. Early in June, pos- sibly, a referendum of the people of the Eastern colonies, would be taken, and they would then decide one...

WHAT MR. JAMES THINKS OF IT. PERTH, Western Australia, April 7, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

G. T. SIMPSON, M.L.A. Who suggests the foundation, of a Federation Iieague for Western Australia. WHAT MK. JAMES THINKS OF IT. PEBTH, Western Anstralia, April -7,18Ô8. i Dear Sir,-Owing to the peculiar ; provision of our Federal Enabling Act thé Federation Bill bas to be suSmitte C to our Parliament before being re- ferred to the electors. This provision i to some extent lessens the need of at j once placing the bill before the electors, as the discussion in Parliament should serve some of the purposes which in the sister colonies can at present be alone served by public meetings. My own fear, however, is that unless public opinion is awakened Parliament will be too apt to treat the matter in a narrow and somewhat selfish manner ;1 it will be inclined to regard too much the immediate financial aspect of the question, and to - attach too little : weight to those wider and worthier con- siderations which appeal to all those to < whom Federation is a passion, not a plaything...

THE AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION A FEDERATION LEAGUE. SUGGESTED BY MR SIMPSON. THE VIEWS OF LEADERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 10 April 1898

THE AUSTRALIAN CON- STITUTION A FEDERATION; LEAGUE. SUGGESTED BY ME. SIMPSON. THE VIEWS OF LEADERS. in the course of an interview with Mr. G. T. Simpson yester- day, that gentleman (who, we re- gret to say, is suffering from severe indisposition) ~suggested to a representative of the SUNDAY TIMES the advisableness of founding a Federation Leagae for Western Australia. Although Mr. Simpson is not inclined to re- gard the new Federal Bill as the absolute essence of perfection, he is still of opinion that it is of the highest importance that Western Australia should re- gard itself as an integral portion of the Australian Nation, and that the progressive portion of its people should demonstrate their national feeling by an organisation which will enlighten the public j upon the subject of federation generally. Like most politicians who have considered the subject, Mr. Simpson thinks that we need have no hesitation about accepting the proposed constitu- tion. "If it be not perfectly dem...

Ci)e «orlö af Cricket. "When I says 'Hont!'-hont yon goes." In tbè midst of al] that has beet said recently concerning the lead- ing batsmen of the colonies, il seems somewhat strange thai whilst the comparative failures ol Donnan and Gregory, and the com- plete failure of Iredale, each ol whom hail fron New South Wales next to nothing has been said respecting the truly marvellous performance of Victor Trumper, who is likewise a New South Wales player. Shortly after arriving ir the colonies Ranjitsinhji expressed the opinion that V. Trumper, the young New South Wales player, ? would, in two years' time, be the j best batsman in Australia Whether his prediction will come : true remains to be seen, bnt thc I Sydney colt is. certainly sha» i-«o ! well.
