MR. CHAMBERLAIN. AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT. THE ABLE COLONIAL SECRETARY ON TOUR. COMING TO THE COLONIES IN 1898. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

MR. CHAMBERLAIN. AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCE- MENT. THE ABLE COLONIAL SECRETARY ON TOUR. Comino to the Colonies in 1898. We are able to announce on un- impeachable authority that the Bight Honourable Joseph Cham- berlain, Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies, will visit the Australasian colonies about next September. Mr. Chamberlain has for some time past projected a tour through the British dominions, and, in fact, was very anxious to have carried out his trip this year, but the unprecedentedly disturbed state of affairs in Europe and the great pressure of work consequent upon the recent Jubilee celebra- tions in England have frustrated his intention. We now learn from an authori- tative source that the right hon. gentleman will leave England about the beginning of August, 1898, provided nothing exceptional in the home or foreign political situation intervenes. He will sail, per P. and O., for Bom hay; thence across India to Calcntta and Simla. He will leave Calcnt...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 2.] TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE SIR JOHN FORREST, LL.D., K.C.M.G., M.L.A. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 2.] To the Bight Honoubable Sib John Forrest, LL.D., K.C.M.G., M.L.A. Sib, I find that I am unable this week to devote as much attention to you as I should like to do. Happily your career is far better known to the world at large than that of any of your rivals, so that there exists no necessity to enter upon anything approaching a sur- vey of your past. But although the lack of space compels me to forego the pleasure of surveying you from the beginning to the present, I think you will agree with me that you are the very apotheosis of good fortune. As a civil servant you were fortunate; as a Minister you have been even more so. Repeatedly has your Cabinet blindly ordered works to be carried out which would in- fallibly have ended in disaster had it not been for your never failing good luck. The history of your various railway enterprises afford the best examples of this truth. Neither at Mullewa or at Southern Cross was there anything to justify th...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1897. CONCERNING CATTLE KINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN fundas pintes. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1S07. CONCERNING CATTLE KINGS. Amidst the floods of turgid and more or less irrelevant debate set loose by Mr. Leake's motion in re- gard to tick in cattle, it is not easy for the casual reader to trace ont the actual facts. At first blush it would appear as if this dispute were merely a side issue arising out of differences amongst mem- bers of the meat ring. Actually, it is probable that no more im- portant question has come before the House during the present Session, as the issues at stake involve not only the wisdom, bn t the honesty of the Administration. To recapitulate the facts, known and unknown, will be of interest. It appears that in the early part of 1896, Messrs. Connor, Doherty and Durack, Limited, imported some 600 head of cattle from a station called Wavehill, in the Northern Territory, into the East Kimberley district of Western Australia, This Wavehill is situated in a district which has been declared *' infe...

WHEEL AND WOE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

WHEEL AND WOE, (By Edward Ellis.) If there was anything in the world about which the Honourable Gwendo- line Maurigy was absolutely certain, it was thal the assistance of a man was entirely superfluous where a woman know how to take care of herself. As her father was a Colonial Governor, and she about as well known as the Town Hall clock of the Australasian capital which he honoured with his residence, she had many opportunities, she con- sidered, of judging the effect produced by woman who knew how to take care of herself. Ti there was anything in the world concerning which the Honourable Gwendoline Maurigy's chief abettor and confidant in ordinary, Miss Désirée Le jeune was more dead sure than she was about anything else, it was that she and the Honourable Gwendoline, " could face the world together." So one day, one awful perspiring, melting, muggy, and altogether uncom- fortably damp day, they set forth to seek their fortune and show their mettle. Miss Gwendoline, whose golden h...

ORIGINAL POETRY. FIDELIS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

ORIGINAL POETRY. FID ELIS. I wait for you, I watch the time, That wages well my fight You'll love me yet, and lean wait The dawning of the light. I wait, as waite the man who sows Good seed in early Spring, And calmly sleeps the while it grows, To bud and blossoming. And though the flowers may bloom too late, To comfort or to save, He does not murmur at his fate; They flourish on his grave.

BY THE SEASIDE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

BY THE SEASIDE. Tracing- your name in the sand, my dear, Only your name in the sand ; You in our native home, my dear, I in a distant land. You with the crisp snow under your feet, And a wintry sky over field and street. I in the sultry summery heat, Prone on the shore where the surges beat; Listening to ocean's ceaseless roar, Longing to see your dear face once more. Tracing oft with an eager hand, Only your name in the yielding sand ; Only your name in the sand, my dear, Only your name in the sand. Many a watchful night, my dear, And many a weary day; Have since our last farewell, my dear, Faded and passed away. But you are true and will not forget, And the old love burns in my own heart yet As warm as ever, as tender and true, Strong as of old in its faith in you. So on this distant shore I lie, * Watching the blue'waves rolling by; Tracing ever with loving hand Only your name in the golden sand. Only your name on the sand, my dear, Only your name in the sand. The Oxford Saloon, ...

Aquatic Notes. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

Aquatic Notes By "Stroke.' Had it not been for the trial four- oared races held amongst the mem- bers of the S wan River Club, a stran- ger or visitor to Perth would not know, unless informed so, that we had in our midst two strong local clubs. A few weeks ago, the W.A.R.C. boat house exhibited great activity. * # * The few real warm days that we experienced at the early part of the week drew hundreds of an afternoon and evening to the river for a plunge in the briny. Quite a crowd could be witnessed at both the inside and outside spits, dis- porting themselves, " as if to the manner born.'' The outside spit appears amongst the swimming loving portion of the populace to be the favourite spot, perhaps ow- ing to a greater depth of water, but I feel sure that if the authorities were approached, a spring-board might be obtained and erected, for at the present time no facilities of any kind are there, and the cost of erecting such a thing would be a very trifling sum; or, perhaps better...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

TO CORRESPONDENTS A.J.S.-All wrong. If you want to bring a libel action against an insolvent you should sign A.S.S. What sort of a reputation can you have if it requires defence against that ? Moot Point.-Nothing of the sort. The colony was first settled according to Mr. Malcolm Fraser, the Registrar General, to whose year-book you can easily refer, by Major Locke- yure and a party of convicts, who were sent by the Imperial Government to Albany in the year 1825. The glowing accounts of the fertility of the land led to the forma- tion of the Swan River Settlement in 1829, the chief members of which divided the available soil as far as it   was known (about a million acres) among themselves, so that the people who came out the next year with capital to buy land had to go back, because they could not get rest for the soles of their feet. The Begistrar-General's Year Book gives this information also. ANXIOUS.- No redress whatever. Grin and bear it. See answer to A.J.S. Indi...

Athletics. QUOITS [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

QUOITS As I predicted last week, M'Vee has not been long down from the fields before he has issued a chal- lenge. He has offered to concede 10 points in 71 to anyone in the the colony at the 18 yards mark, and to play anyone in the colony on level terms at the 10 and 12 yards distances. Now this is a big order, and as one who has seen Mac. play very often I am sanguine of his ability to secure a victory if his challenges are accepted. Mac. stipulates that the games most be played under the recognised quoit rules of the world, and must not take place on a link associated with an hotel. It appears that there are some rules in force in this colony which are different to those in vogue else- where. To these Mac. objects, and contends that the rules observed should be those under which games are played iu connection with the old-recognised quoit as- sociations in the old country. How- ever, the question of rules is one which could easily be fixed np. Brockwell, who is undoubtedly the cha...

Wim KÙ éfytúmt Lord Wolseley is so superstitious that he will not walk under a ladder, and, he says, while in Ireland, he wore ont three or four hat-rims saluting mag- pies. According to an Amsterdam news- paper, three pictures in the collection of Jonkheer Six, of Amsterdam-a Rembrandt, a Cuyp, and another old I Dutch masterpiece-have been sold for a million florins, about ?£80,000, to the Duke of Westminster, who desires to present them to Queen Victoria. For every rose That ever grows, For violet, For mignonette, For lillies, pansies, daisies, For purple stock, And hollyhock, For all the flowers That scent the hours, We owe a thousand praises. When the ging of Siam recently visited Denmark he accompanied the Crown Prince Frederick to Helsingfors, and was duly conducted to Hamlet's grave. Here he took off his hat, and stood for a moment in reverential j silence. Then, turning to the Crown Prince, he said, with deep sympathy, "A relation of your Royal Highness, I presume. Has he be...

VERY HOT PEPPER. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

VERY HOT PEPPER. A boy named Arthur Courcelle was caught trying to enter France over the Belgium frontier on a bicycle the entire frame of which seemed to be tightly packed with peppers. He was sentenced to six months' imprisonment and a fine of £40 and his bicycle was con- fiscated. The W.A. Watch Company, at the corner of Barrack and Murray streets, announce in another column that they have a splendid assortment of jewellery, watches and plate-ware suitable for Christ- mas and New Year presents, re- pairing in all branches of the tiade is a specialty of the com- pany; having just been appointed by the W.A. Government for the adjusting and keeping in order of all the railway timepieces. The People's Cash Store has been the scene of extraordinary activity during the past week owing, no doubt to Mr. Herman advertising his Christmas price-list, i wherein are enumerated all the component parts of the Christmas pudding, at bed-rock prices, to- gether with all the necessities of daily li...

Corts and [?]etorts. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

Carte ¡ttór ^Letalis. For our sius we have the street " bands." A " band " generally comprises a man with a violin, who knows about as much of music as his instrument does of melody, a flautist who can play a little, be- cause the flute is an instrument you can not vamp with, and last, but not least, a harpist, who knows absolutely nothing beyond the fact that he must, keep on pulling at the strings in order to encourage the others. The ill-omened trio, who almost invariably hail from " niffy " Naples, take up a position in front of a house, and, without any preliminary warning, emit a series of heartrending wails, groans, and discordant raspings which the tortured ear vainly tries to distinguish as some once-heard song or symphony, but, generally, entirely fails to recognise. With kick and patience, good foot- ball players have been known to occasionally resolve the weird concatenation of sounds into a faint resemblance of Non è ver or Suwanee River, but to the average or boarding-...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

FACTS, FANCIES, AND FORGINGS. [BY "FORTIS."] The general exodus of racing wheelmen during the Christmas holidays has had the tendency to make matters cycling in the metropolis somewhat dull, though their visits to the several country districts should have a beneficial effect in these centres. The result of the racing at the big meeting at Coolgardie has demonstrated the fact that in rac- ing, as well as other branches of cycling, the goldfields riders »re superior to those of the metropolis. In almost every event the visitors were defeated by the local men, and these winners, too, were prac- tically new aspirants for racing honours. The largest prize yet given for any race in the colony was that which Boyland annexed when he won Coolgardie Austral Wheel Race on Monday last. The opinion expressed by many, that the event was a gift to Stotter, was not borne out by the result, which showed that the scratch men were all out of it. Boyland is a Kalgoorlie rider who has lately come into p...

A THRILLING ESCAPE. AWFUL EXPERIENCE OF AN AMATEUR LIAR!! FACE TO FACE WITH DEATH!!! [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

A THRILLING ESCAPE. AWFUL EXPERIENCE OF AK AMATEUB LIA» ! ! FACE TO FACE WITH DEATH ! ! ! lt is no use denying it. Facts are facts. This a double fact-twice over. Here it is. Eight months ago no braver man than' Rupert Holdcmoff ever stepped the steppes of Siberia. Three months before last Christmas, Rupert was prospecting for wild cats on the shores of the Sea of Azov. The skins of these extremely ferocious and voracious reptiles are worth their weight in gold in London and other -places. But that did not deter our gallant hero ; rather it urged him onto face death, and the local police, and other tilings. One fine, br'ght day in January, when the warm breezes howled through the forest (they always do in Siberia ; here the Forrests howl through the warm breeze) Rupert, gun on shoulder, and cheerily wliistling the "Dead March," strode out from his 12 x 10 hut and disappeared into the dimly-seen belt of trees that surround most forests. He had not gone more than a mile, when he remem...

CRICKET CELEBRITIES. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 2 January 1898

GRIGKET CELEBRITIES. No. III. MR. A. G. RUSSELL, CAPTAIN AUSTRAL CC. Mr. Russell is no chicken. He was born in North Sydney, New South Wales, as long back as 1859, and has played cricket consistently and enthusiastically since he was " shorted." So he ought to know something about the game. In fact, I am given to understand he does. His first seasons were put in with the Willoughby CC, and at the age of " sweet seventeen " played senior cricket (such as it then was) with the St. Leonards (now the North Sydney) Club. He won a single wicket match for £20 aside against W. Duffy, of Parramatta, New South Wales, in which two fieldsmen were allowed. At skittles Mr. Russell was a great hand, and had the reputation of being one of the best players in New South-Wales. For many years he captained the Kiama CC-a very strong combination, which one season played 21 matches without a loss, every man in the team having a double figure average at the end of the season. His own averages, as a rule, ...
