RAILWAY REFRESHMENT AND DINING ROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

BAXLWAY REFRESHMENT AND DINING BOOMS. (BY "TRAVELLER") We hear many, so many, growls and complaints lately about the miserable fare, service and attendance prevailing at the stations along our railways, where there are supposed to be refresh- ment and dining rooms, and as most of these growls and complaints seem to come from the agricultural districts, or more properly speaking the line be- tween York and Albany, it therefore stands us in hand to inquire why these troubles and annoyances exist, and to consider if there cannot be some remedial measures devised by which to add to the comfort of the travelling public. We are told that along that par- ticular line it ia impossible to get a decent meal at a fair reasonable price. That the attendance is far from being what it should be. That clean table linen is the exception. That there are mow flies than "tucker;" and that if it were not for tinned milk, batter, fruits and vegetables (imported from the other colonies, Europe or America)...

A STRANGE COMMUNITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

 STRANGE COMMUNITY. That there should be in any part of the world a community of civilised and partially civilised beings " ignorant of wealth, poverty, crime, taxation, dis- content, and ambition, and working out in its primitive simplicity some curious social problems/'is a statement one is at first disposed to accept with a feel- ing of incredulity. But Mr. A. Penne's description in Temple Bar of the 600 persons living under the. mild despotism of Mr. George Clunies Boss, in the Cocos-£eeling group of coral islands, lying about midway between Fremantle and Ceylon, is too circum- stantial for doubt. A Scottish-family of 20 persons constitute the aristocracy, and the Other inhabitants are 400 .Cocos born and 200 Javanese,.all being of Malay descent. The owner , .àf the islands is well, skilled in the arts and sciences. : One of 'his brothers is an engineer, another a' medical man, and a .third a man of mercantile affairs. " By .precept, example and the exercise of a kindly despoti...

MY STATION HOME. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

MY STATION HOME. Above him a heaven of deepest hine. In front broad plains of emerald hue, j ' With starlike daisies dotted o'er, j And circled round by the mountain's hoar, At the homestead gate the squatter stands, And gazes with joy [on his smiling lands. Stalworth he is, a son of the soil With hands and brow deep stained with toil; Away in the distance he can see The dear old creek by the sheoak tree, , I And he hears the bell-bird's song of thanks For the rains; that have gladdened the river banks. And o'er the face of the gazer has . passed A look of pride as he watches the last Of the mob of horses back from-the drink Chasing each other along the brink» While, they toss their beautiful, heads and manes . */-. . * Fresh from the new grass after the rains. '*'"'? .', Hark i now he hears the crack'of a . whip ! The mailman has come on his' weekly trip. And the day. is drawing near its close, For far in the west the sunset glows, And the dingo's howl echoes down the ! creek In th...

NIGHT AND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

NIGHT AND DAY, The world is a sad and cruel world, Unhappy as can be. AU things go wrong and the hoars are long; There's a storm on my life's sea ; Cold, wintry winds sigh round my heart, And moan unceasingly. For my sun has set in a sea of jet' When Daisy frowns on me. This world is a bright and happy world, And my soul soars high and free, For a golden ray lights up my way With a hope of joy to be. Old friends may pass and fade away, All other memories flee ; The day may die, but bright is the sky When Dais? smiles on me. T. W. T.

Roming. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

ftofanttTi. j (BY "AN OLD 'UN. ") "Take your time from me, boys." The first open race for members of the West Australian clubs took j place on Monday last at Fre- j mantle, ander the auspices of the j North Fremantle Sailing Club, and, apart from a little unpre- paredness on the part of the officials who had the carrying out of the arrangements in connection with this race, passed off pleas- antly. The course was. from a point near the Railway Bridge to near the new entrance at the month of the river, a distance of a short mile. Crews representing the Fremantle, West Australian, and Swan River Clubs went to the «tarting post, and faced the starter, Mr. Jas. Rogers. The West Aus- tralian crew took the inside posi- tion, Fremantle the centre, and Swans on the ontside. After a short delay the crews got off to a very even start, but before going many strokes it was plainly ap- parent that the Swan River repre- sentatives were by far too fast a orew for" their opponents, they ' drawing o...

RHYME AND REASON. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

RHYME AND REASON The following from the Kalgoorlie Miner doesn't run much to poetry, but on facts it is a whale : Some call this field "The Golden West" And laud it to the skies. Where all men of their wits possessed Are bound to make a rise. Others, again, will call this field j The country of the " Lags," And tell you that the total yield Is poverty and rags. But what you mostly wish to know Is, Can you win a prize If you were here ; is there a show For to make a rise ? "Aye, thafs the rub;" Til tell you straight, Ifs hard for me to say ; But, as for me, right up to date It s just the other way. There are some mines with wealth un- told, And more not worth a flip ; But of the mines that have much gold The " Big Bug" holds the scrip. And, should you chance to work in one, Tour share of gold is small ; For if ten ounces to the ton The " Fat Man " wants it alL But, friends, I wish to warn you all Of " Wild Cats " to beware ; When you are at the open call Don't buy in them a share. No...

THE KLONDYKE GOLD- FIELDS. IMPORTANT INFORMATION. We have received the following letter, which is authenticated by the British Columbia Board of Trade of Vic- toria, B.C. 27 Jamieson Street, Sydney, April 1, 189a TO THE EDITOR.) SIE,-There is a great deal of mis- information being published relative to the best route to the Klondyke Gold- fields, which will mislead Australian prospectors unless it is corrected. The writ jr was at Dawson City last July and August, has been over two of the routes, and has knowledge, based on experience and the latest official reports, of the condition and cost of the several waysof reaching the Yukon Valley. Briefly, the facts are as follow - All along, close to the coast from Van cover north is an almost impassable barrier of mountains, ranging from 5,000ft. to 18,000ft. in height. Klon- dyke is 600 miles in the interior from the nearest port on the coast. The mountains are pierced by a number of swiftly dashing rivers, none of them navigable EXCEPT ...

[?]enings From Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

(BY "THK JOHNNIE.") " Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." Cremorne is looking brighter and fresher than ever. The rains have refreshed the grass, and a change of artists, songs, and business has .had a regenerating influence upon the habitues. The older favorites remain in favor, the '* Landlord's Daughter" main- tains her reputation in Syd. Deane's charge, the Mintons continue to tinkle, tinkle, tum, in the same old style, while Dave Caston's falsetto shriek still grates upon the ner- vous system. Charles Cogill's sunburnt complexion still fatu- ously beams npon the grinning visages which occupy the chairs during his " turn," while Mr. James Harvey imitates all creation in a manner which is as large as life and several times more natural. * * * Mr. John Coleman is recalled considerably, and, as usual, de- serves it. His ** Trilby " is a spectacle for gods and men, and both alike applaud it vociferously. His " Jockey" and the " Scarecrow Dance " are grotesque impersona- tions...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. It would be vastly interesting to know just how much work is done at the public expense for the per- sonal benefit of those engaged in the pablic service. I am moved to this consideration because. I re- ceived through the post on Tues- day last a circular purporting to come from the " Psychological Society of Western Australia." This reached me in an ordinary envelope, and was delivered by the postman. - The envelope did not bear the magic letters O H.M.S.. nor the nsnal penny portrait of Her Majesty, nor the emblem of the colony, nor indeed any flank- ing stamp or mark whatsoever. I was at a loss to understand this until I perused the circular itself, and saw that the" Hon. Secretary, pro tem" is a Mr. W. Wall worth Knight, who gives as-his address "Mail Branch, G.P.O., Perth." Now, it ls an offence against the Postal Act to ask a postman to carry a letter even across the street unlessastamporthefrankingstamp of a public department is affixed to it, but it seems th...

THE ALLUVIAL DISPUTE. MORE INJUNCTIONS. SENSIBLE ACTION OF WAK.DE N TT A RR On Friday morning 25 alluvial diggers appeared at the Warden's Court at Kalgoorlie to show cause why injunctions should not be issued to restrain them from conti nui ng work upon the Ivanhoe Venture lease. After some preliminary argument from the counsel engaged in the case, the Warden, in answer to an application from counsel for respondents (Mr. Jones), said he had been informed that the special case would be set down for the 13th (the previous day), and he believed it would come before the Court in about a week's time, after certain jury cases had been disposed of. He had made up his mind to grant the application, and as he could not say how' long it would be before the special case would be decided, he would grant an adjournment for a week. He believed the lessees had, during the time the matter «was in abeyance, done no work beyond .keeping the shaft clear, and he considered it would show a becoming spi...
