THE MISSING CYCLIST. DENNING SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898
THE MISSING CYCLIST. DENNING SAFE. The grave anxiety which has pre- vailed during the past week regarding the disappearance of Mr. J. K. Denning, who essayed the task oí riding overland to Queensland, via Melbourne, was set at rest hy the receipt of the news in the city yesterday (Saturday) to the effect that he had returned to Buldania, and was expected to reach Norseman last evening. He broke the chain of his machine when 45 miles from Fraser's Sange, and had to walk back again. Denning: left Norseman for Balla- donia on Friday evening, April 15, and expected to reach Fraser's Bange on the following day. No further news having been received of him, the police at Norseman went out in search on Thursday last.
THE ELECTORAL ROLLS. (To THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898
THE ELECTORAL BOLLS. , (To THE EDITOR.) Sir,-I addressed a letter to Sir John Forrest on the 2nd of this month ask- ing him would he, in accordance with a promise he made, appoint a Deputy Registrar at Coolgardie. I pointed out to him that people were put to great inconvenience when trying to get the declaration signed to get their names placed on the electoral rolls, as the Justices of the Peace did not care about being troubled, and some of them absolutely refused to sign them, and j that a large number had brought their I forms back after trying in vain to get j them signed. In reply to that I received a com- munication from G. F. Eliot, Acting Under-secretary, stating that after due inquiry having been made it was . deemed unnecessary to make auy appointment at the present time. I am instructed by my committee to draw your attention to the following facts : 1. As you are aware. Sir John pro- j mised the appointment of Deputy Registrars. 2. That the fact of the Workers' Associati...

SATURDAY'S LATEST. THE WORKMAN'S PARADISE IN THE NORTH. The following questions addressed to Mr. Vosper, M.L.A., telegraphed from Causeway Camp, Pott Hed- land, in the Nor'-West are signifi- cant as showing what sort of place Western Australia is becoming for the white worker :-Can contractors Port Hedland run store and store ac- count in contract? (Trucking.) Are Asiatics allowed to work ? (Yellow agony. ) Also,can work be sub-let to gangs of men ? (Sweating.) Oblige, answer quickly. Reply paid." To this Mr. Vosper has sent the following reply : " Regret that I must reply in the affirmative."-VOSPER. At this rate the Nor'-West is an excellent place to keep away from.

HERS RASSMUSSEN, THE CELEBRATED DANISH HERBALIST,. VISITING PERTH and FREMANTLE. - The only Herbalist in W.A. Nervous Skin and Blood?

MORE ABOUT THE ELECTORAL ROLL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898
MOSE ABOUT THE ELECTORAL BOLL. A few days ago I applied at the War- den's Court for application forms, being desirous of having my name on the roll,, but was informed by the Warden that it would necessitate an application to Kanowna. The time was short, conse- quently myself and others were too late. This seems to bs very absurd, the more especially when it is con- sidered that in the Eastern colonies so great facilities are given to people to enroll, even to the extent of sending a policeman from house to house and in a measure compelling people to have their names on the roll. The matter was discussed by our com- mittee, hence this letter to you, to re- quest that forms of application be sent to the committee, so that anyone on application to the secretary can, with- out too much trouble, have the privi- lege of voting. Forms for the Assembly are what is wanted. I am informed, that the application forms are some- what complicated, and for the slightest informality are rejected, an...
THE COOLGARDIE WATER SUPPLY. Is THE WORKS DEPARTMENT COMPETENT TO CARRY IT OUT? [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898
THE COOLGARDIE WATER SUPPLY. Is THE WORKS DEPARTMENT COM PETEXX^O,CARRY IT OUT? "Weil, a canvass amongst th leading engineers of experience i Perth shows that it is the genera opinion in the profession that th Works department is not to b trusted in the matter. The genera public top, seem to be o the same opinion. Let ns lool at a few facts concerning tlii branch of the Service, which ma] help us to an opinion : 1. There is no officer in the Work Department having sufficient ex perience of jobs of this character, t&lt; be entrusted with it. Apparently th&lt; only man in the service who has hac charge of similar works is in th&lt; working railways. 2. The Coolgardie main line fron Southern Cross was laid out three feel six inches tn tlie mile out of alignment It was caused by the use of faulty theodolites in the hands of incompetenl boys, pitchforked into billets tbrougl influence. 3. The expansion joints to be used on the pipes are of a kind never before trie...
THE EFFACEMENT OF SUSANNAH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898
THE EFFACEMENT OF SUSANNAH. (Bx LINCOLN SPKINGFIEIJD.) Hiss Susannah Greenbank no longer takes any public part in the social re- generation of the world. She has re- signed lier membership of all the societies and organisations which are trying to surveiller the kingdom into purity of ufe and thought. Her stern visage and tall, gaunt, militant figure ho longer awe the mild frequenter of Exeter Hall meetings, and the County Council Licensing Sessions are nowa- days allowed to pass without any inter- ruption on her part Miss Greenbank's once too familiar name now never meets the eye in the newspapers, for Miss Greenbank has ceased to practise in her profession as a lecturer, and the need for self-advertisement ther^f^re no longer exists. This extraordinary effacement of Miss Susannah Greenbank was brought about indirectly by the McGinnes family. Many theatrical managers, many newspapers, many men of the world, had all in turn endeavoured to suppress Miss Greenbank, and their efforts h...

The World of Cricket. "When I says 'Hont!'—boat you goes." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898
Cljc Moria of Cricket. " When I says * Hont ! '-boat you goes." The Australasian cricket writer " Felix" has discovered that in the eternal fitness of thing6 the Leichhardt team of cricketers were very aptly named, " being allright in an exploring character." Their last exploring feat was on the occasion of their match with Paddington, when the latter kept them exploring ad the afternoon, scoring 325 for tw » wickets, of which number Trumper made 162 not out and Af. A. Noble 144. * # # Four hundred and ninty-fonr for eight wickets is not bad for youngsters. Playing against Carl- ton College on the Carlton Ground the University High School put up this splendid total. Towards this Dinsmore made 133 (retired) and Fal kingham 103 (retired). The last-named hit a ball into a corner of the ground and ran seven for it. The High School should go close to annexing the School Association premiership.
BUNBURY RACES. (FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) BUNBURY, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898
BUNBURY RACES - (FROM OÜB SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) BUNBURY, Saturday. The first cUy's racing of the Bunbury Cup Meeting was a success from a managerial point of view, but not so from a racing aspect. The fields were small throughout, although eight ran in the White Bose Handicap. The Locke Bros. were only in evidence by winning the Collie Coalfield Handicap of seven furlongs, the fourth race of the day; in the other races their repre- sentatives were beaten. Paragon's win in the Trial Handicap was one of the easiest wius of the day, but Taihoa, in the opinion of many, was lucky to score in th« White Bose Han- dicap, as Summer was left at the post. Summer ran in light shoes, and, well, we shall see what we shall see to-day (Saturday). Euglo won the Ballway Handicap, pulling up, from Tatheroo and Redemption. Inthe Coalfield Handi- cap Islamite went to the front early in the race, and stayed there. Tatheroo won the Flying Stakes, which was the concluding event, handsomely from the favou...
