THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 1898. HOW TO GET ON THE ROLL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN gunöag taimes. SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 1898. HOW TO GET ON THE SOLL. Daring the last week we have received about half-a-dozen letters on the subject of electoral regis- tration . We are glad to be able to note that our frequently re- peated representations on the sab ject are at last bearing fruit, and that some interest is being excited in this vital sub- ject, than which none is of more importance to the demo- cracy generally- One of our correspondents wants to know why the Editor does not go around amongst the working classes with a sheaf of electoral forms in his hand and register all and sundry. The writer urges as a justification for this very kindly suggestion that the labour members in Queens- land do so This kind of thing is what we expect from the average casual correspondent. It might have occurred to our friend, but seemingly did not, that the Editor of the SUNDAY TIMES has to hustle ronnd for a living like anybody else, and that if he did not put in his sp...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 16.] TO THE MEN OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 16.] To THE MEN OP WESTERN AUS- TRALIA. Gentlemen,-Although I have retained the title which usnally graces these epistles, I am con- scious that at present I am addressing a higher power, a more mighty and potent force, than any one public man can ever be, no matter what his eminence or his virtues. For if we have kings, yon are the king-makers ; if judges, yon are still the great Court of Appeal It is to yon, then, oh, many-headed ! that I address myself, for believe me, my good friends and .brethren, the time has now arrived when earnest words of counsel should be spoken to you, even though they come from one who has no authority over you, and who has no merit to recommend him, save that of fervently desiring your welfare and happiness. * * # Most of you have taken a more or less perfunctory interest in the great qnestion of Federation, bnt few of yon, I venture to think, have yet thought of all that this great national movement means to yon and ...

IN ERROR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

IN EfifiOS. She sat alone, her fingers twitching nervonsly. ; Shifting shadows flitted abont the room; shadows of ;the woman causedby the flickering of ; the fire. Sometimes they raced along': .the white ceiling; sometimes they: dodged abont the pic- tures on the walls, or-hid themselves under the great mahogany table. Though she had sat here, for nearly an hour she had not. rung for a light. Comfort sometimes lurks in shadows. Besides, Death was in the house. Even now she could hear muffled tread of the doctor's feèt as he paced the room above. . Suddenly these footsteps ceased, and she wondered if the man-this man who had loved her so madly, so vainly-was dead. She fancied" she saw the doctor closing the wild,' staring eyes of the dead man. Thé thought made her shiver. Suddenly the door opened and the doctor entered. "Well?"she gasped. j " There is no hope," he said. " Half an-hour is ali I can promise. Won't you go up at once ? He is constantly calling for you. Soon he will be un...

A BRACE OF MEDICAL STORIES. WAS IT TO BE? [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

A BRACE OF MEDICAL STORIES. WAS IT TO BE ? [BY FRANCIS MARLOW.] " Pardon M'sieu*! M'sieu' is a doctor?" The dapper, business-like little manager of the Hotel Royale seemed to hare lost all his briskness, and stood trembling and shaking bis hands hysterically before Richard Mumford as he ascended the hotel steps. Dr. Richard Mumford admitted his profession, thereby causing a momen- tary smile of relief to flit across the small manager's face. Then as Mum- ford still continued to advance, the terrified little man skipped on in front of him, pouring out in a regular avalanche of words the misfortune which had befallen him and his hotel, and wound up by beseeching "m'sieu'" xxi accompany him to the first floor and save his establishment from the in- eradicable blotch of having a suicide die within its walls; besides "madame," the wife of the dying man, was incon- solable, Dr. Mumford drew his inferences, and the manager's disconnected story, as he led the way upstairs, assured him that ...

Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

Owing to the lateness of the season when the new baths were completed, nothing has been done locally towards the formation of a Swimming Club. We. have in our midst many ardent followers of swimming from not only the Eastern colonies but from the old country, and although not coming" up to champion form, yet are fleet enough swimmers to cause a good deal of excitement should a swim- ming carnival be held. Now the time is quite appropriate to the formation of a club, and during the winter months the club could be successfully formed, and by the approach of the next summer everything could be in ship-shape order for a merry season. It is hoped that some of the more en- thusiastic swimmers will take the matter up, for it only wants some one to make a move, when we feel sure it will become a pro- nounced success. * * * At the North Fremantle Sailings Club's regatta, held last Monday, the only swimming race on the programme was won by Shaw, of the Fremantle Rowing Club. * # # The 100 Tar...

THE BLACK NORTH-WEST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

THE BLACK NORTH-WEST The white man came to the black north- west For the east and south were want opprest ; With a willing heart and a strong right hand In search of work in a white man's land. He humped his drum, for his purse was low, And he tramped cross-tracks that the drovers know, Till he struck a town in the wild north- west Which the dark Malay and the Jap infest. But his worn heart quailed when he learned, alack, That he must be cheap, and he should be black. For the master-men in the black north- west Love the white men well, but the cheap men best. ] For a white man owns to a white man's j vice, j He must have meat, but a Jap eats rice ; j So the master men in the wild north- j west Lo ve a white man well, but a black man best. They gave him work, out of charity, At a black man's wage in a white coun- try ; For you kneed not starve in a white man's land, You may have a bone if you lick the hand. And he longed full oft with a hunger- ing mouth, To fight- once more for the ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

ORIGINAL POETRY BY THE SEASHORE. I Sitting alone in sadness Out by tbe foam-flecked shore, Musing on days of gladness, Dreaming of days of yore ; Calling back happy moments I Now, ah ! for ever fled : Thinking of those who slumber i Calmly with the dead. I Watching the crescent moonlet I Dipping behind the bourne, i Plunged in the depths of sorrow Desolate and forlorn. Is there no hope to greet us After our toil is o'er ? j Will our lost ones meet us ? j Is there a " distant shore " ? ' List to the lapping wavelets Sobbing and sighing low ! List to the sighing night wind Sobbing and saying " no !" " No " in the wailing whisper Borne on the rippling wave ; i " No " in the sinking moonlet ; " No" till the quiet grave, Softly our sorrow covers Sealing our earthly doom. " No," as the night-bird hovers Over the silent tomb ; " No," is the solemn answer Hear what the wavelets say " " No !*' is the cruel sentence " No !" for ever and aye. J. O IL

YACHTING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 17 April 1898

YACHTING NOTES (Br " FLYING JIB.") Rain and squalls greeted the initial regatta of the North Fre- mantle Sailing Club on Easter Monday at Fremantle. The racing was very poor ; the Hiawatha an- nexing the two events she started for, her power telling directly she got outside. She completely smothered the Olinda, who made a sorry exhibition in the "jump," the little Inez doing far better. The other races do not call for any particular mention. * * * Mr. Dendy's new boat, the   Hiawatha, made her maiden effort   and was very much admired. She is, indeed, a well-built boat, and   reflects great credit on her builder, Brown, of Fremantle. In model she is distinctly Linton Hope, though we understand she was locally designed. This may be, but the principal is as we state above, Linton Hope, who divides the honor of being England's best small boat designer with George Sibbick of Cowes. This class of boat is admirably suited for the Swan, and if in ligh...

SEASONABLE! ON AND OFF UMBRELLA PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

SEASONABLE ! ON AND OPP UMBRELLA PEOPLE. [Br ARNOLD GOLSSTITHY. j The facts are in this way. It was on a rainy day last week. In the morning when I left home it was as bright as a new threepenny bit ; and when the splash came later on I wasn't quite pre- pared for it. I was hurrying along to keep an appointment when all at once Jupiter Pluvius swashed drizzle at me a quart at a time. Having no time to spare, and being close to my destina- tion, I just turned up my coat collar and ploughed through it; and, neces- sarily, by the time I was at the other end of the street I looked as if I had been in soak for a week. I was as wet as the tear-dimmed eye of a London company-promoter. * * # The man I went to see looked me up and down as I entered his office, and just said nothing for quite a minute. I have never known a man to say nothing in a more irritating way. His manner distinctly implied that I had been obliged to get wet because I could not afford an umbrella. In his subsequent conv...

THE STRIKE AT THE GREAT BOULDER. OVER THREE OUNCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

THE STRIKE AT THE GREAT BOULDER. OVER THREE OUNCES. A représentative of the SUNDAY TIMES interviewed Mr. Zebina Lane yesterday in reference to the reputed rich strike at the Great Boulder, and was informed that the lode has been struck in a crosscut 30ft. in from the 400ft. level of the main shaft. The ore is rich in sulphides and tellurides, and assays over 3ozs. to the ton. A stone-broke canvasser sends in the following : Hunting ads. in a modest way, " Call again " the majority say, Regardless whether a feed you'd had, Whilst hunting for the fruitful ad.

A FRESH GOLDFIELDS TROUBLE. RESIDENCE AREAS. DISSATISFACTION OF HOLDERS. A STATEMENT OF THE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

A. FRESH GOLDFIELDS TROUBLE, i - 4 RESIDENCE AREAS. < - i DISSATISFACTION OF HOLDERS. I A STATE SIE NT OF THE CASE. j (BY"WONOA.") The time is fast approaching when most of the residents of the goldfields who have secured residence areas will have completed their twelve months' term. This year most of the areas with houses on them will figure in the Government Gazette as being open for sale or for auction at an upset price varying in amount as the Government thinks it will be possible to screw out of the occupier. For some Kalgoorlie allotments the price fix^d is £4-0, some «£50, others £20, while for the Boulder the upset price is stated as from «£30 down to 3ßl0. Now, the Government means to collect this money. It is one of their chief ESTIMATES FOB BEVENUE, and if the present holders do not like to subscribe to the various schemes out- lined, a gentle threat of a public auc- tion is held out. It remains to bs seen whether the residents of the goldfields are willing to ...

HOW WE TREAT OUR BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

HOW WE TREAT OUR BLACKS London Truth comments as fol- lows on recent revelations of the treatment of W.A. natives:^ It is not in Africa only that a re- actionary tendency is being manifested in the treatment of native races nuder British rule, The same process is vis- ible in West Australia. Most of the English papers recently reported the atrocious case in Perth, in which a man named Anderson was proved to have brutally flogged three natives to death. Anderson was clearly guilty of murder, but, in spite j of a strong summing-up by the Chief Justice, the jury convicted him of man- slaughter only. The Chief Justice has since called attention to an "equally revolting" case at Geraldton, in which a worse miscarriage of justice occurred. On that occasion, one of the witnesses for the defence was a magistrate, who frankly admitted that he had himself habitually broken the law by thrashing natives. Not only is this law-breaking magistrate allowed, to re- tain his commission, but the Premi...
