MORE NOTES ON CUBA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898

MORE NOTES ON CUBA (BY "ESPERANZA.") The notes under this heading last week having elicited several enquiries as to where truth ended and fiction began, the writer desires to say you " pays your money and you takes your choice." In dealing with Cuba, truth does not figure ; the average Cuban lies as fluently and easily as a newspaper or a member of Parliament; besides, as Disraeli said, " Language was made to disguise thought," and also, as Pudd'nhead Wilson re- marks, " The surest way to con- vey misinformation is to tell the strict truth.'' The article was written throughout on these lines. # * * Thieving, too. is an exact science in Cuba, the Westralian Meat Hing being a fool to it, and the man who cannot steal artistically wonld never gain admission to the best Havana society. As an instance of this, General Blanco, at one of his council meetings with the highest grandees in the land seated round the table, was accustomed to use a valuable gold pencil, presented to him by the "K...

To-morrow even- ing «Monday) the Clark-Cogill Com- bination will open at the Old English Fair with an entirely new company of variety artists. The names of Clark and Cogill are so well known to our readers that {there is no need to enlarge upon their merits, but their mere publication is sufficient guarantee that a really excellent and thoroughly up-to-date entertainment will be provided. To-night (Sunday) the company give a grand rational con- cert, which shotld provide a pleasant refuge from the all-pervading dulness of the " British Sabbath." Dr. Zillmann lectures this (Sunday) evening on the subject of " Spain and Cuba." It is, we are informed, the doctor's intention to deal with the sub- ject in the light of the present rupture between Spain and the United States, and also to criticise the recent deliver- ance of the Bev. Mr. Bowe on the Justification of War.

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, MAY 1, 1898. GOVERNMENT CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN $u*tdctg Firnes. SUNDAY, MAY 1, 1898. GOVERNMENT CHANGES. Once again the kaleidoscopic Government, as Mr. Illingworth aptly called it, has undergone a change. The retirement of Mr. Wittenoom has necessitated a further shuffling of the cards, al- though the King of Clubs, or rather umbrellas, is still uppermost, while the Knave of Spades has gone hence to chase boodle in a more convenient sphere. This is decidedly a change for the better in some respects, bat the new. appointments in the Cabinet, though the best which could be made with the meagre material at the disposal of the Minimi ry, are still open to very serious critic cinn.~ 1 -^t*--<".r ?# . ? ? . ? # ' Mr. H.

(Bírenntjjs from Hom*. <BY " Tmc PLAYGOER;") " Leave off your damnable faces, and begia." A recherché bill of fare was tendered at the Cremorne during the week in which the entree and entremets and eins were alike good, but the piece de resistance was un- doubtedly boeuf rôti-I mean to say Syd. Deane's rendition of the patriotic song ** Dear Mother Eng- land." Deane was in excellent voice, and the stirring sentiment of his song was echoed and re- echoed by the audience. Amidst salvoes of applause an additional Terse proclaiming the brotherhood of England and America was re- peated, the curtain twice falling on the pretty and effective tablean presented by bright-eyed Nellie Sheldon as .Britannia, and fine specimens of the volunteer and naval reserve. The martial music of the orchestra, the soldierlike figure of Deane, and the glancing eyes of Britannia, which "looked love to eyes that spake again," genuinely thrilled the audience, who cheered the performers till the hall ...

YACHTING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898

YACHTING NOTES (Br " FLYING JIB.") The open sailing race held hy- the Boyal Perth Yacht Club last Saturday was the most successful held by that club this year. Everything went off smoothly, and reflected credit on the officials who managed the race. There was the usnal kick aboat the handicaps, bnt only from the fel- lows who lost, which is generally the case. #, - * * Starter Knox : got the following boats off, promptly at 3.15 : Hygeia, Hiawatha, Olinda, Ven- tura, Vida, Kelpie, Yelkie, and Hèro, and, with the exception of the Olinda; effected a veiy fine start, the latter boat losing fully four minutes through not being on time. It was a little hard on her, but, no donbt, the lesson will prove wholesome to thone who are of the opinion that the flag officers of the day are at the beck and call of the boat owners, and Mr. Knox is to be congratulated on the stand he took. Shortly after the start the usual foul took place, the Ventura hooking her jibbon tn into the after leach of the...

The popu- larity of this highly talented lady is unbounded, and in the Eastern colonies her name is a household word, not only as one of the most {popular actresses Australia has ever seen, but also as the most charitable lady ever known.

THE BLACK NORTH. THE POLICE AS ALIEN AGENTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898

THE BLACK NORTH. THE POLICE AS ALIEN AGENTS, Sir,-I am taking the liberty of -writing to bring before your notice that two of the police are acting here ; as agents for Asiatics, and furthering the interests of the latter in every way they can. Constable-caused to be : submitted to auction, and purchased for a Japanese named Catto, lot S3 in this township. This is, I believe, the -only portion of land owned by a Japanese, and that it should have been secured for him by a white man is a standing disgrace. Constable- is .agent for a brothel-keeper, and has drawn out an agreement for this party to lease a house for the keeping of pro- stitutes. This house is situated on lot 16, and the agreement is in the hands of a Chinese storekeeper, whose name I can give. The last constable named spends a good deal of his time loafing about brothels, and playing cards with the prostitutes. Will you please bring this matter before the proper authori- ties, and use your efforts to have these men remo...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. The Premier, in his Northam speech last week, said it was a dis- grace that Western Australia did not get her food supplies locally. He thought that she could do it and would do it. But what an ad- mission of the failure of the policy which has put on a high tariff of food duties ! While the grass is   growing the steed is starving. By the time the food supplies are pro- duced locally the people may not be here to consume them. En-   courage local industries by all     means, but first encourage people to live in the colony. Don't tax the people for a purpose which you   acknowledge has not been achieved ! If farmers must be pro-   tected, let that be done in some   other way, either by a bonus   system or by discriminating in   favour of a certain class of pro- ducts which are congenial and friendly to soil and climate. The   abolition o...

Roming. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 1 May 1898

ROWING> (By "AN OLD "UN.") "Take your time from me, boys." A very pleasing ceremony took place at the Legislative Council Chambers during the week, when a deputation from the Swan River Rowing Club, consisting of Messrs. J. M. Lapsley (vice-president), H. Carr (hon. secretary), F. Mendoza, L. Dullard and F. Burton (com- mitteemen of the club), waited upon Sir George Shenton and pre- sented him with a handsome framed picture of the winners of the Champion Four-oared Race of Western Australia as a slight mark of the esteem the club holds their president (Sir G. Shenton) in ; also to ask him to hold in trust the silver cup, which the club now holds in connection with that race, but which must again be won by the club before becom- ing their absolute property. Mr. Lapsley, in a , few well-chosen words, made the presentation, and Sir George suitably responded, accepting the gifts, and hoping that in the next race for the cup   the club's representatives would agai...

MORPHETVILLE, Saturday, 5.30 p.m. The autumn meeting of the S.A. Jockey Club opened here this afternoon, a crowd of sèveral thousand people being in attendance. Sport opened with the Maiden Plate, for which a fair field went to the post. Chokebore, a son of Carbine won from Respond, brother to Hear Hear. The Fret Hurdle Race, which followed, had especial interest for Westralians, inasmuch as your ex champion hurdler, The Provost, was engaged in the race and backed for a pot of money. Mr. McLean's cast-off won, and won easily, Regent, his con- queror at Onkaparinga, having to accept third position behind Menindie. The Goodwood Handicap attracted a splen- did field.
