A GREAT THEATRICAL TREAT. THE MAGGIE MOOSE SEASON. Miss Maggie Moore, Mr. H. B. Roberts, and their entire company, ar- rived in Perth last Wednesday by the s.s. Rockton. A very large crowd of Miss Moore's old friends assembled on the wharf to welcome Australia's most popular actress to W.A.

The stage is being enlarged, and the lighting is being thoroughly attended to, footlights are put in, and floats and bunch lights are being placed in position.

Roberts is an actor who has for the past four years been associated with Miss Moore in her great successes, and his versatility knows no bounds, judging by the round of characters he essays, from Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, to John Stotel, and from Wilfred Denver, in the Silver King, to...

The following is the most recent out- come of the arbitrary action of the police in connection with the boot- , makers' strike, of which an account is given elsewhere : At the Police Court on Saturday morning, before Messrs.

HOW THE GOLDFIELDS ARE TREATED. THE PRICE OF RESIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

SOW THE GOLDFIELDS ABE TREATED. THE PRICE OF RESIDENCE. Just reckon the cost of entrance to the goldfields. First there is the pass- port, the miner's right, without which yon are as the Chinaman or Afghan. No one else in the colony pays this 10s. poll tar. With this passport, however, one has the privilege of pegging a residence area of a quarter of an acre. If a man goes to the farm- ing districts, instead of a paltry quarter acre Band patch, he is presented with 160 acres on which to build a home. The goldfields resident is not only given a bare quarter-acre, but when he has resided on and given it some value the Government demand a fee of ¿£20 or ¿30, or any arbitrary sum which would suit the state of their coffers. If yon have not got the money, then they will sell to the man who has the money, and he will no doubt be glad to let yon live in your own house for a weekly consideration. The goldfields resident is asked TO FAT ¿¿120 AN ACRE FOB Ii Alfi) that will grow absolutely no...

GOOD FOE PERTH. Aie OPEBA. CO MP ANT COMING. Mr. J. C. Williamson, who is at present in Adelaide, is reorganising the Royal Comic Opera Company, which will begin its new life at the Theatre Royal, Perth, on May 14. The repertoire will include the best operas known to Eastern playgoers, while the members will consist of leading operatic artistes, among whom will be Mr. William Paull, who came to Australia with Madame Albani, and who is one of the finest baritones ever heard in Ans tialia. Barred and bolted as Dreyfus is in his cell on Devil's Island, his gaolers in Paris have still felt some anxiety lest he should escape, and the Daily News correspondent is informed that each grated window has been fitted up with a second grating. Some time ago the unfortunate prisoner, who is unaware of the present agitation in France, attempted to commit suicide. Since then he has been made to lie at night on a plank bed with his feet chained to a cannon ball. The Gaulois-an] anti-Dreyfus paper-is ...

THE BOOTMAKERS' STRIKE. HIGH-HANDED PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

THE j BOOTMAKERS' STRIKE. HIGH-HANDED PROCEED- INGS. The fact that a bootmakers' strike bas been in progress since Monday last and that police inter fe re ace has been deemed neces- sary, and yet that no account appeared in the press till yester- day. (Saturday) morning shows a great plenitude of reticence on the part of the police authori- ties and a decided lack of enterprise on the part of the daily papera, which was only remedied on Friday evening by a representative of this journal communicating the particulars to the West Australian. The mere circumstance that . nothing has appeared ia the papers is a pretty good proof that there was very little need for the action the police saw fit to take, for had there been any disturbance the matter would most certainly have become public property earlier. However, the facts of this peculiar affair are as follows : On Monday last 28 hands em- j ployed at the Colonial Boot Fae- ] tory struck work, their grievance being that a schedule of w...

YACHTING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

YACHTING NOTES (Br " FLYING JIB.") A. race was held last Saturday ander the auspices of the Fresh- water Bay Sailing Club. The race calls for little description, as the handicapping was a " how- ling farce." Placing such an- tiquities as the Lotus and Iolanthe almost on equal terms with the Hiawatha entitles the handicapper to a place in the Ministry. Again, his brilliancy, shone forth in con- nection with the Hero and Inez, and he either must have an exaggerated idea of the JTrestu water Bay boats, or a very poor one of those belonging to Perth. Barnacles are things that any clnb is best lid of, especially when they have whiskers. * # # The Vida, tbe new boat spoken . of last week, has been out several times lately, and moves through the water very well, though she has not been alongside anything to see how fast she really is. The model is practically after the Skip Jack style, very little freeboard (in fact not enough), and she is alto- gether too flat forward, as the owners will ...

THE WORKING MINER. PROTECTION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

THE WORKING MINER. -: PROTECTION WANTED. Sir,-In view of the consideration now being given to the matter of the amendment of the Mining Laws of the colony, I would like to show, by a state- ment of disagreeable experiences of my- self and others, the need for provision being made in the direction of more strongly securing the rights of men who have honestly worked on leases, and find themselves wrongly hampered in their endeavour to get what is due to them. The circumstances are set forth in copies of two letters, which I enclose, and I would ask for your help and advice. Up to the present date the bailiff and the Mines Department have practically refused to allow us to see any statement of account how the amount realised by the sale of the lease has been applied, the bailiff and Warden's Court charges, or our own solicitor's bill of costs. -I am, etc., j LIONEL H.
