The Advertiser TUESDAY, APRIL 13, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 13 April 1897
$D|}t étatiser TUESDAY; APBIL IS, mi. THE visit of the Australian. Eleven to this colony is one more sign of progress. Two or three years ago the visit of such a team would have been considered an impossibility for several reasons. 'Hie colony had then no grounds upon which the game could be played with success nor were the grounds in use enciosed and the probable financial support was not sufficient to justify the bringing over of., such a great combination. Now, how ever, the conditions are largely altered and Western Australia promises in à few years in every way to compete wUh. the other colonies in every department of sport. And sport seems to be the chief test of the strength of a colony. It is, at- all events, the test that is applied by the great majority ot the people. The ¿earn that is visiting these shores is one that has become famous on the cricket fields of England so that the lovers of cricket in this colony are likely to be given aa opportunity of witnessing a magnif...

THE GENERAL ELECTIONS. THE COMMISSIONER FOR CROWN LANDS AT NORTHAM. LAND SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 13 April 1897
THE GENERAL ELECTIONS. THE COMMISSIONER FOB CBOWN LANDS AT NOBTHAM. LAND SETTLEMENT. Mr. George Throssell, M.L.A., Commis sioner for Crown Lands, in a speech at Northam, said that the policy of the Govern ment was before the country, and it remained with the people of the electorate to say whether it met with approval. He did not propose to deal with the policy in extenso. lt appeared to him, however, that it was a policy of development. It meant the con struction of railways, telegraphs, roads and bridges, the opening up of stock routes through the country, and water conserva tion, and it contained everything that was possible to make tho courtry fit for occupa tion. That policy commended itself to him, and he need hardly say that it had his hearty support ; otherwise he would not be before them seeking their suffrages. Having ac cepted a seat in the Ministry, the chief sub ject that now occupied his mind was the speedier settlement of the land, and in his new position he hoped to ...

OUR OPEN COLUMN. THE W.A. REPRESENTATIVE TEAM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 13 April 1897
OUR OPEN COLUMN, THE W.A. BEPBESENTATIVE TEAM. TO THE EDITOB. BIB.-Rome few days ago a letter appeared in the Morning Herald signed " Barracker," complaining that E. Marchant and W. Kelly had not been chosen to practice with a view to being inclnded in the team'to play against the Australian Eleven, and stating that Monaghan and Feely were probably as good as some of tboBe picket). I have since read a criticism in Saturday's iesue of the same paper, in which the writer says it is absurd to advance the claims of W. Kelly and F. Feely. I think it only fair to state that neither Feely nor Monaghan considers himself good enough to be picked, nor do many of the cricketers of Alumy agree with " Barracker " wi' h regard to the merits of thes-i two men. Marcbant having been chosen to practice, he will be given an opportunity of proving his worth. I regret the same chance was not given to W. Kelly, who is without doubt a good bowler, and anite as eood a bat as s vera I who have been chosen t...

KATANNING NEWS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 15 April 1897
KATANNING NEWS. [FBOM OUR OWK COBBESPOXDENT. J Dr. A. Badock and Mr. A. Piesse were elected to fill the vacancies in the Katanning Foads Board caused by the death of Mr. B. : Taylor and the resignation of Mr. F. Crosby. It is satisfactory to the residents of the township to know that they will now be re presented on the board, and I do not think they could have chosen two better men to represent them. A number of our cricketers collected on the railway platform to see the Australian Eleven as they were passing through in the train, and when they were leaving gave them three cheers. Our team have two matches on the cards j now, oue against Mourambine on Friday j next, and on Baster Monday a team will ! leave here to play each of the Ward clubs in your town, but the secretary is experiencing very hard work m getting a representative team on account of a good many of the players being rather reluctant about leaving their ploughing.

The weather was lovely to-day wheo the match, Australian Eleven v. 18 of Fremantle, was commenced in the presence of about 1,000 persons.
