'TIS BUT A VERY LITTLE SCRAP. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

'TIS BUT A VERY LITTLE SCRAP. BY " CONFOUNDEM." When I was quite a little chap. Across my mother's knee With the butt-end of her slipper She oft has stirred np me. How fast my little tears would throng ; How I howled at every whack. And swore to even get, ere long, H e'en the glass I'd crack. I used to hate the yellow Dwarf, The Evil Wizard of the Bills ; But now I'm held fast in his grip With p.n-'s, notes and bills. I've marked his grasp his charmed pen, And scissors audibly he'd snap, When he wrote np the Sunday Snooze, And for the owners laid a trap. At night my sleep is gay with dreams, Of heavy charges, lawyer-sent, And I, as witness, would help get them, When the paper to the wash was sent. Fd surely alay my Mountbrick while For the hirsute I care no rap. We divvy up those costs in style, Me-and that other chap. And lately with a prig's quick hand I torn o'er Rhyme's bright page, And chop and clip words smart and grand To meet the Antediluvians rage. For me and my well chosen...

[?]enings From Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

(BY " THE PLAYGOER.") " Leave off your ?damnable faces, and begin.'' Now, I do not wish to carp, bat I must use the scrubbing brush to begiu with. A little less extrava- gance in the use of the nasty "grease" paint, particularly the rose pink for the males and eyelid relish for the ladies ; the removal of a certain patch, which does not add to the beauty of a massive MAGGIE MOORE. I The sabjecfc of oar illustration is an excellent reproduction of that ever-green favourite Maggie Moore, in her famous character study of Lizzie Stofel in " Struck Oil." The press have been unanimous in according Maggie Moore the highest praise for ber impersonation of this quaint and powerful character. Mr. Anderson, her capable business manager, arrived in Perth this week, and finding that the Town Ball would admirably snit his purpose, has arranged a season of two months there, i j. with the option of a renewal at the expiration of that time. Elaborate preparations are being made to j j produce her dr...

THEATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

THEATRICAL NOTES. (BY "THE JOHNNIE.") I I hear with pleasure of the forma- tion of a Perth Amateur Dramatic Com- pany, yclept " The Thespians."" # * . Amateur theatricals can do a lot towards popularising clever dramas, and by no means militate against pro- fessional shows, unless, as is often the case, the amateurs have a better con- ception of the art than the so-called professional. The ladies of this com- pany should bear in mind that Miss Dorothea Baird was chosen to represent Trilby, a character study many pro- fessional ladies eagerly sought after. * # * I understand that the initial perfor- mance is " Caste," that the proceeds are to be devoted to the Cottesloe Convalescent Home, that the Misses Pool, Dunn and Saith are the principal ladies, and that Mr. G. L. Barton is the business manager. # * # Furthermore, that this company will show, pur et simple, for the benefit of philanthropic endeavours, and that there will be no "commonwealth dis- tribution of dividends " like so ...

WHAT THE "BULLETIN" THINKS OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

WHAT THE " BULLETIN " THINKS OP IT. The Forrest Government's new regu- lation prohibiting alluvial miners from digging below 10ft. produced unex- pected results at Kalgoorlie (W.A.) a few days ago. Premier Forrest had gone there to lay a foundation stone, and the alluvial crowd wiped up the town with him and made him retire with great loss of dignity. It was, un- doubtedly, a rude and objectionable outrage, yet it was neither so brutal nor so cowardly nor so indefensible as the daily papers have represented it. The Forrest Government first of ali gavç to the miners the right to dig for alluvial at any depth, and multitudes of them depended on the work for a livelihood. Then it took away the right-not by any parliamentary process, but merely on the say-so of the boss-firm of Forrest and Co., and its new regulation de- prived numbers of the miners of their sole means of support. This was a worse outrage than the one which the miners committed when they wiped up the dusty town of Kalgo...

PUBLIC BATTERIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

PUBLIC BATTERIES. Twelve months ago Sir John Forrest announced in his Bunbury speech that it was the intention of the Government to erect batteries in suitable districts to assist the prospectors and develop the resources of the outlying portions of the goldfields ; and when some six months ago officers were appointed to carry the scheme into effect, it was taken as an earnest of their intention to speedily redeem the promise given at Bunbury ; but since the appoint- ment of officers very little has been done beyone red tape correspondence towards the erection of batteries on the North Coolgardie fields, and as far as Mulline is concerned that correspon- dence is like the " Babbling Brook," going on for ever. Over two months have been spent in trying to arri re at a conclusion whether the Government will assume control of the Mulline well or not. If the pre- liminary stages occupy an equal period the battery will be of little use to those whom it was intended to assist. Prospectors ...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. A matter which is still exciting much unfavourable comment in the city and throughout the colony is the alleged non-payment of Go- vernment accounts. I am informed that a very large sum indeed is still owing to various firms in this manner-more especially to those engaged in the contracting trade. No doubt this delay in the past of the departments is largely re- sponsible for the existing de- pression, and if those concerned weren't afraid to call their shadows their own a remedy might probably be found. * * * The Collie Coalfield is progress- ing in a crab-like fashion-back- wards. The leaseholder.«, for the most part, are getting far more exemption ihan coal. Seams of coal are plentiful, but there seem* to be nothing done with them. Now that i hat¿2290,000 railway is open, is'nt it about time we got more encouraging news from this quarter ? Or is the trail of Bun- bury over ir. all? Formerly the lessees applied for exemptions because they had no means »>f carry...

ACTA DIURNA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

ACTA DIURNA. " Fare-Fac " has been writing things ?about W.A. farmers in the West Aus ' tralian which would be simply dread- ful if they were written by a mining man. # # # Here are some extracts : "There is all that beautiful southern country just pining to produce eggs and butter and cheese, and thousands of people here and more to come abso- lutely starving for the want of these commodities. We paid the other colonies -£1,516,709 last year for agri- cultural produce, every ounce of which ought to have been grown on Western Australian soil." # * # Again : "Luck has been with the far- mers of this colony since the gold- fields started, and so long as they have that million and a half annually to make up I suppose they will continue to go on in the same happy-go-lucky style. But some of these days they will have to do more than scratch ; they will have to work with their heads as well as their hands, and then they will realise that sweet' are thc uses of ad- versity, and that there ...

SOME NOTES ON CUBA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

SOME NOTES ON CUBA. (BT "AMEBICUS.") War looks inevitable. Soon Spain and America will be grip- ping each other's throats to decide who is to be top dog in the coming straggle, and a few remarks on the Cubans, their habits, and charac- teristics may be of assistance tc the Australian reader, whose in- terest in the fight naturally centres on the odds he can obtain about the combatants. Hedging will be advisable, as one side or the other is certain to be scratched. The Cubans are as good as the Irish peasantry at hedging, provided a Spaniard instead of a landlord is at the other side of the hedge. Cuba, as you doubtless know, lies, geographically speaking, at the bottom right-hand corner of North America, close to Florida, the tail end of which State, Key-West, is mainly populated by Cuban re- fugees. The principal products of Key-West are tobacco, heat, and cholera-the best brands of each. This is where the finest brands of Havana cigars are grown and made, except those yon bay in P...

CORRESPONDENCE. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

CORRESPONDENCE (To THE EDITOR.) Sir,-Seeing in your issue of Sunday, April 10, a paragraph relating to language used by a member of the Perth Plying Squadron in the presence of several ladies, and as the paragraph applied to me, which is a gross in- sult, and entirely without foundation, I wish to state that I deny making use of any bad language. The words I made use of were, " There was too much Ventura, and I was full up of it." And the charge laid at a committee meeting of the Perth Flying Squadron against me was as follows :-" That there was too ma eh b- Ventura." The charge of bad language fell through, as I had 10 witnesses to prove the contrary, though they did not think it necessary to call them. In justice to myself I wish you to con- tradict the statement appearing in your issue of Sunday, April 10, as the statement is a direct insult to me.-I am, Tours respectfully, JOHN MCNEECE, Foreman Joiner, Caledonian Mills, Lord-street, Perth. Perth, April 19.1898. [On investigation...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 1898. THE ALLUVIAL DECISION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN gmnöag pintes. SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 1898. THE ALLUVIAL DECISION. OD Thursday last Mr. Justice Hensman decided the law points in connection with the alluvial con- troversy. A strong bar, probably the strongest ever engaged in Western Australia, was retained to act against the diggers, and a vigorous effort was made to keep the matter outside the cog- nisance of the Supreme Court altogether. From the beginning of the dispute every possible effort has been made to baulk the men in their demands for justice, and above all to prevent an appeal to the only tribunal in the colony whick is to be trusted. Hap- pily for the public confidence in the administration of the law and the welfare of the country, Mr. Justice Hensman brushed aside all trivial objections and proceeded to hear the case, with the result that the stand taken by the diggerè was triumphantly vindicated. Nor need we be surprised at this. Law and logic, justice and fart, have been with the men from, the be- g...

Queen's Toast was given the Easter Monday Fremantle Hurdle Race on the protest case going1 be- fore the committee of the W.A. Turf Club, which wasn't fair play. The mare is known to have run at a liquor trade picnic, and on that count alone ought to have been wiped out. Then, too, there ave strong hints that the mare is in every way identical with an animal that raced under another name at Perth and Canning Park some months back.

YACHTING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

YACHTING NOTES (Br " FLYING JIB.") Last Saturday the Perth Flying j Squadron celebrated the close of a very successful season by a splendid race, with a very close finish, the Olinda winniug by the narrow margin of four seconds. The race was for an enlargement I of the winning boat by Tesla, the well-known photographer. ¡Starter Harker got all the boats off the Hue splendidly, with the exception the Hiawatha, who was some distance to leeward when the flag was lowered. A brisk wholesale wind made things hum for awhile, and the Hiawatha tucked in one reef, the rest carrying whole sail. # * * On the first stretch towards South Perth the Inez fouled the Ventura badly, completely throw- ing her out of the race. Im- mediately afterwards the Hiawatha courteously gave way for the same boat, though the former had the right-of-way. M'Guire should be given the alternative by the P F.S. committee of either learning the elementary principles of mari- time rules, or handing in his resignation. Th...

Roming. "Take your tims from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

(BY "AN OLD 'UN.") "Take your tims from me, boys.". The forthcoming Fremantle re- gatta on Jane 1 is making the executives of the clubs show a little more animation than they have been exhibiting for some months past, as they are now about selecting and placiug men in their respective crews for the different races they compete in. Oue matter the Fremantle Rowing Club should lose no time over is the publishing of their pro- gramme, so that the clubs may have au idea of what races will be held, and start away at once with their crews. Possibly during the coming week the pro- gramme will be issued. * * * The West Australian RowingCiub held a meeting of their selection committee (Messrs. Wilkinson, Underwood, and Horsburgh) on Tuesday evening last, when it was decided that crews and scullers should be sent to compete in every race, and. with that object in view, selected the following : Maiden Sculls.-J. Muir and F. M. Parker. Maiden Pairs.-T. Messer and J. Messer. Maiden Fours.-The fol...

PARASITES OF SOCIETY. A STORY DECIDEDLY WITHOUT A MORAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

PARASITES OF SOCIETY. (BY "NEMESIS.") A STORY DECIDEDLY WITH- OUT A MORAL. Mr. Oily Gammon was in his element. It was a specially called meeting of directors, and he had been selected to preside. Matters, which from the start of the com- pany had been decidedly Jabez Spencer Baifourian, had reached the climax. All the money which had been invested by the confiding shareholders had been carefnlly spent by the directors on them- selves, and now, so that everything might be said to have been done decently and in order, the directors were called together, and Mr. Oily Gammon was selected to fill the post of honour. It is scarcely right, however, to designate it a post of honour. Generally a post of honour is awarded to one whom certain individuals possessed of the power desire to honour, but in this case the whole of the directors sitting round the board, haying correctly guaged his character, positively hated him. There were good reasons for this hatred. In the ^first-^p lace his face ...

BOOKS AND THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 24 April 1898

BOOKS AND THINGS. (Br "QUID NUNC") The death of Major Kemp, which occurred on April 15th, 1898, will have little significance to many people in Australia, but to old New Zealanders in all parts of the world the stirring times of '48 and '60-the struggle between the Government and Kingites, and the war in the Waikato will recur. The notable figures of the Maori rebellion, the frightful atrocities of O po ti ki, and the massacre of Poverty Bay, the hideous figure of old Kereopa and the infamous acts of Te Koo ti will occur to them. Fortunately as- sociated in their minds will be the brave support of faithful Maori chiefs and their tribes, among whom Major Kemp will always be remembered with gratitude. * # # Kemp, whose Maori name was Kepa, took part in many engage- ments, and was regarded as the best native officer in New Zealand. In appearance he had few signs of the Maori about him, and was uu tatooed, having, in addition, a very bushy beard, an unusual thing at ail for a Maori, and...

RAILWAY MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898

RAILWAY MANAGEMENT. (Br "TRAVELLEB.") It is a fact recognised by tra- vellers and shippers over the Go- vernment railway lines of W.A. that they fall far short of perfec- tion, and that there is ample room for improvement in every branch of the service. Indeed, it is re- grettable that the Commissioner of Railways did not instruct Mr. Davies, general manager of rail- ways, who is now in England nn. a six months' leave of absence, be- fore his return to visit Austria Hungary, and post himself on the zone system, inaugurated there some few years ago, and which has proved such a remarkable success. The peculiarity of the system is that fares jump instead of slope up, as with English and colonial lines. That is to say, instead of fares varying with each additional mile, under the zone system they are only alterad for every 10 or 15 miles, and within the limits of each zone fares are uniform, and, of course, this does away with tickets for each station. The passenger takes his ticket for...
