£ftí Worth ai Cricket. ' When I says * Bout ! '-hont you goes." EAST FREMANTLE GLUB'S VISIT TO BUNBURY. The above club, accompanied by many supporters, visited Bunbury during the holidays, and spe:tk ia roost complimentary terms of the* hospitality shown by the cricketers and residents generally. Arriving at Bunbury on Friday they were shown to the Prince of Wales Hotel, where arrangements were made to receive them. Many residí nts, including the Mayor (Mr. Moore). Messrs. Brown, English, Marshall and others, en- tertained the visitors, who thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Two matches were played, one against the South Bunbury team and one against the Stragglers. I The first was won easily by the I Fremantleites, the result being due to the excellent cricket shown by Messrs. Mears and Cope, who were quite a team in themselves, the others of course assisting materially. The second match resulted in a draw, the rain un- fortunately preventing a continu- ance of the match after lunch. * ...

BOOKS AND THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
BOOKS AND THINGS. (BY "QUID NUNC") " Quid Kane " has been ap- proached by a certain young gen- tleman in this city burning with the dangerons disorder eocoeth.es scribenidi, as to the pecuniary value of literature compared with other pursuits. His reply was and is with Graut Allen. " Brain for brain iu no market eau yon sell your abilities to such poor advan- tage. Don't take to literature if you have capital enough to buy a good broom and energy enough to annes: a vacant crossing. But re- member my advice applies to literature as a profession and not to journalism, wherein young men can earn and are earning very good incomes." Grant Allen still re- peats this advice, though now 50 years of age, and celebrated as a novelist and popular scientist. * # # A note on the earlier life of this author may be not uninteresting. Allen's penchant lay more in the direction of science than fiction ; and in order that his identity as a scientist should not interfere with his fictional works he ad...
THE COLONIAL MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
THE COLONIAL MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY. The new buildings of this company, which were opened on April 9, are situated in St. George's Terrace, and form a splendid addition to the in- stitutions of the city. The society is well and favourably known, but a brief resume of the operations since 1874, when business was first commenced in Western Australia, will not be out of place. The Society has beeu established in Western Australia since 1874, and the first directors were William Thorley Loton, George Randell, and George Shenton, the first secretary being R. C. Loftie. The Society's business progressed favorably, and in the year 1890 the directors bought the site on which the new premises have been ei ected, anticipating at the time a great -future for Western Australia. Many favorable offers were made to the Society subsequently for the purchase of the site, but the directors, having in view the interests of the S *ciety and the prospect of a largely increasing population, decide...

A SCHOOL OF METALLURGY FOB PERTH. Mr. Graves Gifford, who has long been well and favourably known in Coolgardie as an assayer, metallurgist, and mineralogist of great skill and high qualifications, has decided upon giving the Perth public the bene- fit of his instruction in these important sciences, and accordingly advertises in another column tha£.he is prepared to take pupils/ at reasonable : terms. Mr. Graves Gifford is a member of the North of England Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, .which carries with it the member of the Federated Institute of Mining Engineers, and his skill and knowledge of his profession is too widely known to require further commendation from us.
THE CLOSED MUSEUM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
THE CLOSED MUSEUM. Sir,-Will you permitme, through your ! columns, to call attention to the closing | of the Museum during the recent holi- j days. i I have always been under the im- | pression that the existence of a museum i is mainly with the object of education and research ; and to those whose occu- pations prevent them from visiting the Museum during the ordinary times of opening and are desirous of reaping the advantages of such an institution, public holidays are the only opportuni- ties they have. The recent regulation for Sunday opening has little to do with the case, however great the benefit may be, because the tired worker as a rule has often other calls upon his time, and may be duties of another nature to perform upon the day of rest. How- ever that may be, it is none the less a fact the Museum was closed throughout the holidays, and considering that in London and other metropolitan cities there is an extraordinarily large attend- ance at the public galleries and mu- ...
FEDERATED AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
FEDERATED AUSTRALIA What hinders thee, my native land, To take 'mong nations free thy stand ? Why linger in dependency. And hug the chains of slavery ? Thy march has been with timid feet, Afraid thy destiny to meet ; With bated breath andhalting gait, Thou mov'st as to a fearful fate. ., Why forward look with fear and dread As if to awful doom ahead ? Thy foes are not beyond, but here ; Thy danger is net far, but near. In thy own house the false friend stays; He mocks thy state with words of praise; While rivetting the fetters fast, He boasts of Empire proud and vast. "Divide, destroy," the tyrant said. Th' imperial boast may thus be read ; Australia's voice, united, free, Shall soon be heard beyond the sea ; Enfeebled unite vainly cry. While sep'rate States with others vie ; And while we dream of Empire grand, We see our own divided land. My native country rise and claim A nation's right, a nation's name ; Th' imperial dreamer, let him dream His vague impracticable scheme ; Be thin...
SATURDAY'S LATEST VOSPER v. QUINLAN. MR. QUINLAN APOLOGIZES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
SATURDAY'S LATEST. VOSPER v. QUINLAN. MR. QDTMXIAK APOLOGIZES. It was stated in these columns some little time ago that Mr. F. C. B. Vosper, M.L.A., had initiated an action/ for slander against Councillor T. É. nin- ian, M.L.A., for statements nVade\by the latter in the City VouutsL. shortly after the occurrence Of>¿$tie | Kalgoorlie "riot." Messrs. Harness and Harney, on behalf of Mr. Vosper, notified Mr. Quinlan that he would be required to apologise, or else face the music in the Supreme Court. Notices of writs for libel were also given to the West Australian and the Morning Herald, the papers being pro- ceeded against- with the view of compelling them to prove the accuracy of their reports of Councillor Quinlan's remarks. Messrs. Kidson and Gawler, of Fremantle, acting for Mr. Quinlan, submitted a draft apology which, after amendment by Mr. Vosper, was ac- ] cepted. The apology appears in our: business columns, and will also be pub- lished in all the leading papers of the col...
A NEW SWEEP. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
A NEW SWEEP. W.A. Tattersalls (J. Charles), at the request of numerous subscribers, has promoted a sweep on the Bunbury Cup, to be run on April 23,1898, 2000 at 5 each. The first prize in this sweep is 200, and should, like the Brassey Stakes, be over-subscribed. Yet another huge score by the young Sydney player, Vic. Trum- per. In the electoral match, Pad- dington v. Leichhardt, he batted brilliantly, and at the close of the day's play his score was 157 not ont. This puts him over the 1000 runs, and gives him the splendid average of 202 or 203, as he has compiled this magnificent total with five completed innings. Major Wardill extracted a pro- mise from Ranji. to bring out the next (English Eleven.
A KINDLY LETTER OF THANKS. We have been requested to publish the following:— To F. C. B. VOSPEE, M.L.A. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
A KINDLY LETTER OF THANKS. We have been requested to pub- lish the following : To F. C. B. VOSPEE, M.L.A. Sut,-As there seems to be an im- pression among some of the members pf tiie A.B.A. that the public of the city of Perth and surrounding suburbs might think that we had intentionally slighted you in not availing ourselves of your kind invitation to meet you at the Perth Railway Station after our liberation from the Fremantle Gaol, this is to inform you, sir, as I think you already know, that we were not aware of your invitation until it was too late to accept it. Instead of refusing to avail ourselves of your kind- ness, we were only too grateful to you, sir, for that and the many other acts of kindness that yourself and Mrs. Vosper have extended to us during our im- prisonment in Fremantle Gaol. For myself, and on behalf of the committee of the A.R.A., we heartily thank you for all you have done to advance the cause of us alluvial miners. I beg leave to remain, sir, Your obedien...
THE STATE OF FREMANTLE GAOL. ANOTHER LETTER. Some SERIOUS STATEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898
THE STATE OF FREMANTLE GAOL. Soara SEBIOTTB STATEMENTS. An awkward question io ask of those whom it may concern:-"When were the books of the Fremantle Frison last audited; by whom, and what was his report thereon ?" I understand they are in a state of hopeless chaos, quite beyond the power of the most efficient accountant to restore to order or to discover definitely the extent of any irregularities that may have been carried on through this absence of system and accuracy. There is not the slightest doubt that for some time past there has existed an organised scheme of robbing the pri- soners with the connivance of certain officials. Thus, every article of diet that enters the prison is of the most inferior quality. Rotten potatoes, diseased meat, rotten meal, bad flour, worse cooked etc., etc. The last day Mr. Vosper visited the cookhouse he remarked that he had eaten many' a worse dinner in the bush." He was a day too late. On the previous day the meat was diseased, and half the p...
