CONDITION OF THE CUBANS. APPALLING ACCOUNTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
CONDITION OF THE CUBANS. APPALLING ACCOUNTS. Appalling accounts are arriving of the condition of the Cuban re- concentrados in the large cities and towns, thousands of whom are starving and dying. Fever is also raging amongst them, and the fever is extreme. We would draw the attention of our readers to the announcement of a high class concert,- tendered to Miss Elvira üee, A.B., A.M., on Monday, May 9, prior to her departure from W.A. This lady has been so well and favourably known to the general public that special reference to her excellent abilities need no comment. Miss Lee will be assisted by all the leading professional artists, and deserves a bumper house. The following is an extract- from a private lefter received by Mr. E. F. Edgecombe, from Nyallagine, a town in the far Nor' West -" Thanks for the SUNDAY TIMES to hand yesterday, and for the promptitude with which you acted in giving publicity to the nigger labor matter. That was settled locally by the men refusing to go do...
THE ATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
THEATRICAL NOTES. (BY "THE JOHNNIE.'*) "The Johnnie" was cut in a nasty fashion last week by Maggie Moore, and, bai Jove, won't stand it any more. Bless her pretty picture ! * # * On dit that J. C. Williamson will visit Perth with malice prepense. * * » "Mrs. Quinn's Twins" is an Irish musical comedy. " Johanna " is not. * * « Prudes beware, or live and learn Emerson saw Taglioni dance and called it " poetry," but Margaret Fuller termed .it " religion." It is the only religion , of some, and perhaps better than none. \ There are over 3000 ballet dancers in the United States. Each one thinks "she can knock 'em any time/' * * * Variety and dramatic artists already recognise that their " notices " are not decided by " pitch and toss," or " heads and tails," tales I mean. * * # "The Press," a unique spectacular ballet, is being produced at the Empire !

THE SIKH PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
THE SIKH PETITION The question of the exclusion of the coloured races from Western Australia appears likely soon to assume an acute stage. The pe- tition of the Sikh inhabitants of the colony to the Imperial Govern- ment has been received and. answered, and according to the daily papers, Mr. Chamberlain's reply hints or says that the local authorities have no right either to discriminate between nationalities or to refuse miner's rights to the persons who are alleged to be coloured British subjects. If Mr. Chamberlain has really written to this effect, a ques- tion of intercolonial import- ance has been raised which in it- self affords an argument in favour of federation, for in the present divided state of Australia it is almost impossible to present an unanimous and authoritative auswer on behalf of the whole Australian people, while in such a matter it is essential to the very continuance of our national life that such au answer should be promptly given. * # . * Whatever .may be ...

MR. HARRY RICKARDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
MB. HARRY RICKARDS. We take the opportuniy presented by our " Saturday's Latest " column to remind our readers that Mr. Harry Rickards will make his first bow to the Perth public on Monday night at Cre- morne. " Playgoer " first saw Harry Rickards in the West of Eng- land in the middle seventies, and it is no mean tribute to the great comedian to say that he is as bright and fresh, and as thorough a favorite to-day as he was then. The coming of Rickards marks an epoch in the his- tory of Perth amusements, and -those who see him on Monday will go again, while those who do not will wish they had, and will make amends by going as early as possible. The ice cap at the South Pole is not less than twelve miles in thickness.
THE COLLIE ACCIDENT FUND A WAIL FROM A NAVVY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
THE COLLIE ACCIDENT FUND A WAH. FROM A NAVVY. Sir,-Knowing your impartiality, I would like to draw attention to the way in which the accident fund of the Collie quarries was inaugurated and ? carried out until March 1. It .is a well-known fact that since the Collie quarry line was first started np to the present time! sixpence per week has been -deducted from the men's wages for the accident fund. But what benefits have the men gained from'it? Simply mi, or next, door to it : and any enquiries as to the benefits or otherwise of the said fund would always result in the same stereotyped answer-"Po you not get the doctor, and if you are badly injured you can go to the hospital?" Tes, you could go to the hospital like a pauper, and come ont like one. But you could not get any other benefits such as accident funds are supposed to be instituted for. And the poor unfortunates who did not get killed outright or die in the hospital could come out when fit and wander round penniless till read...
EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
EXPLANATION. Be first resolution.-Several working men have been put to serious loss and inconvenience through being paid with cheques and orders on the companies and no money lying to their credit at the bank. At Southern Cross at present (April 24), the Central Gold-mining Company owes to working men in wages about &lt;£500,and now they are in liquidation, and a very slight chance the men have of ever getting their wages. And similar cases, all of which could be avoided by a clause compelling the companies to pay in cash or bank- notes under penalty, and the same to hold good with regard to deductions from wages. As, perhaps, you aré aware, around the Boulder principally deductions of ls. per week are kept for medical officers appointed by the com- pany, whether workers care for his services or not, and in some cases the men have to bring 2s. on pay day and pay it down prior to receiving their pay, and then they are paid in full. Second resolution.-It has been said that in ...

TOWARD PARADISE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
TOWARD PARADISE In the life of every man-*t least, of everyman who really has known the true meaning of life-will be found a dead wall in which there is no open door. Behind that wall are written the things of which, perhaps, he may be neither ashamed nor afraid to let the world know, but any knowledge of which he yet will admit only to his own heart. Erbeson had known life, so it is not strange that in his life was just a dead wall. Early in my acquaintance with the man, it came to me to know that there were certain things about which I must not question him. although he was one of the most genial and affable of men, one whom, through years of close companionship, I grew to know and value as a friend and to love as a brother-to know as one who placed more than an empty meaning upon the word "friend"-I found that he would not brook, even from me, any prying query as to the years of his younger manhood. We were gold-hunters by profession. A fine, free, adventurous life it is, which l...

MORE ABOUT FREMANTLE GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898
MOKE ABOUT FREMANTLE GAOL. In reading last week's edition of the SUNDAY THEES I regret the absence of ?"' further criticisms on the Fremantle Gaol, for indeed the severest criticisms - yon could make would be but soft hitting for so badly managed an insti . tution. When Slr. Hope was super- intendent people looked forward to the time of his resigning for an improve- ment in the then existing state of - affairs. In reality he was only a figure- head for many, years, as Mr. W. A.I George had stepped into his boots; . which trick it was hoped he would not ' be'able to accomplish when the change would come ; but lo! the last stage is even worse than the first, viz., his ap- pointment to " superintendent." ' Matters here are so bad that really 'tis a task to attack any particular branch, so I must content myself to give a general idea of the " Happy Home." Mr. George was always, as - lie now is. the little autocrat governor.' When making application here for position of warder, you had, ...
