LEAKE'S LOG-ROLLING. PERSECUTION OF POMBART. Sentence Before Trial. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
PERSECUTION OF POMBART. Sentence Before Trial. We have from time to time had occasion to call the attention of the public to the case of Mr. Pomhart, till recently clerk of the Perth Local Court. That officer, to the best of our belief, has been a most conscientious and efficient servant of the Government for nearly five years, but his path, during the last couple of years at least, has certainly not been bestrewn with rose petals. It is a remarkable fact that in no other walk of life does the Demon of Jealousy hold such undisputed sway as in the Civil Service, and &nbsp; this foul fiend seems to have been at the bottom of all Pombarts troubles. Where he thought to find a colleague and an ally in the office with whom he could work in &nbsp; unison, he found only one who took advan- tage of the fact that lie was ill and under medical treatment to send in confidential reports against him. When use Volcano Which Threatened Pombart at last became active and the lava &...
CREMORNE. "THE SOLE SURVIVOR." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
CREMORNE. "THE SOLE SURVIVOR" &nbsp; &nbsp; The production now running at the Cre- morne Theatre may be conscientiously de- &nbsp; scribed as the best effort put forth by the proprietor of this popular playhouse, and if &nbsp; all presentations are staged as well as the &nbsp; present one we can only predict success to &nbsp; the management. "The Sole Survivor'" is &nbsp; a crisp and bright drama, adapted to suit &nbsp; all classes of the theatre-going public, inas- &nbsp; muchas it abounds in many thrilling inci- dents, and is interwoven with any amount &nbsp; of comedy element. If the fastidious were &nbsp; io find any fault it would be that it abounds little too much in the melodramatic, but &nbsp; it is purely a matter of taste, and we con- gratulate the management on their welcome change from variety to drama. We have &nbsp; &nbsp; not space to give a detailed account...
KALGOORLIE KETCHUP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
KALGOORLIE KETCHUP. BY KURRALONG. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Great Unpaid have been at it again. &nbsp; &nbsp; Last Saturday one H. W. Taylor, a specula- &nbsp; tion in public-house licenses, and Fred. Chapple, an ex-publican, had before them the case of a man charged with knocking down a woman and using her body for a football. Her offence was that she had ter- &nbsp; minated a temporary living partnership with him and refused to renew it. So he &nbsp; broke one of her ribs with one well-directed kick and smashed her face with another. For this savagery the blinking owls on the &nbsp; bench fined him 18s. and costs. They &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; further informed the wretched woman that &nbsp; she as good as brought it on herself by &nbsp; living with a man to whom she was not &nbsp; legally married. Wouldn't this sentence &nbsp; go nicely in parallel columns with that &...
CLAREMONT ELECTION. MR. FRANK WILSON'S CANDIDATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
CLAREMONT ELECTION. MR. FRANK WILSON'S CANDIDATURE. Last Friday night Mr. F. Wilson ad- dressed a crowded meeting of the electors in &nbsp; the Parish Hall, Claremont. Mr. T. Coombe was in the chair, and in introducing the &nbsp; candidate referred to Mr. Wilson's high standing in the commercial world, and said that he intended voting for him and hoped many others would also do so. Mr. Wilson, in opening his address, paid a high &nbsp; tribute to the splendid service the late member, Mr. Sayer, had rendered Parlia- ment, and he was sure that the House had lost one of its most useful members. Mr. &nbsp; Wilson then proceeded with the political &nbsp; questions of the day, and referred to the all- &nbsp; important Civil Service. He reiterated his &nbsp; previous remarks that the Leake Govern- &nbsp; for having increased the hours without a corresponding increase in the salaries. He was of the opinion that an educational t...
QUARRYMAN'S GRIEVANCE. AN ELECTIONEERING DODGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
M. Cuffe writes:—Would you grant me a small space in your valuable paper to show &nbsp; the public the gross injustice to the &nbsp; &nbsp; people of Cottesloe at the hands of the Minister for Lands. A few weeks ago we all received notice to cease quarrying in the Government quarries. This was in effect throwing 60 men out of employment. We called a public meeting to protest against the tyrannical business, at which Mr. Foulkes attended, and he assured us that the Minister had no intention of closing the quarries, but if we would form a deputation and wait on the Minister he felt sure that our request would be granted. But we have found out since that it was nothing but an electioneering dodge on the part of Mr. Foulkes, as the deputation waited on the Minister and he promised that the quarries would go on as usual. I therefore made application for the lease of a quarry and received the following reply, Absolutely Refusing It:— &nbsp; &nbsp; "...

BUSINESS NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
BUSINESS NOTICES A large volume of business is being done in the Metropolitan Fish Markets. The capacious building is admirably ar- ranged for the accommodation of produce merchants, vendors of fish, fowls, etc., and &nbsp; in addition large sales are constantly con- ducted. The markets are proving most suc- cessful under the able management of Mr. W. Kippen Thomas. Waterproof coats for the wet weather are &nbsp; being shown at Messrs. Carter and Co., the great ready-money drapers of'Wellington- street, at unprecedentedly low prices. All kinds of winter requirements are also being disposed of at equally moderate charges. For the ladies, a special line of blousing, flannellas, should claim the attention of patrons to this really up-to-date establish- ment. The Misses Dagnall are conducting highly successful classes in dancing (plain and fancy), music and singing, at Blair Athol, 145 Hay-street East. Pupils are thoroughly trained in these accomplishments. You will be g...

LATE SPORTING. The annual general meeting of members of the W.A. Turf Club will be held to- morrow night at the Stock Exchange call room, St George's Terrace, Perth, at 8 o'clock. The election for the vacancies on the committee will also take place to- morrow. The poll is to be open from 3.30 at thc club's offices until 6 p.m. After that hour votes will be received at the Stock Exchange call-room, where the poll closes at 9 o'clock. Jockey Conlon made a complaint against A. Cox to the stewards of the Canning Park Turf Club, on a charge of foul riding in the Disposal Stakes run yesterday week. After hearing the evidence the stewards dismissed the charge. On Wednesday last the world-famed Eng- lish Derby was run at Epsom, rain greatly interfering with the attendance. The going was heavy. The race proved a good thing for the Irish colt Aud Patrick, who won in a canter by three lengths, with Rising Glass second and Friars Tuck third. Sceptre, the favorite, could only run fourth, which w...

BILLIARDS... EXTRAORDINARY.. FANCY FEATS ACCOMPLISHED WITH THE CUE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
BILLIARDS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; EXTRAORDINARY. &nbsp; &nbsp; FANCY FEATS ACCOMPLISHED WITH THE CUE. It used to be that love levelled all things, but it is now the game of billiards which has this equalising effect upon existence. A superior officer may join a subordinate in this wonderful game without suffering any lapse of dignity. Comparatively few &nbsp; private houses afford facilities for a &nbsp; billiard table, and the result has been &nbsp; that the game has suffered a great &nbsp; &nbsp; drawback to the fact that players &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; needed nearly always to repair &nbsp; &nbsp; to a public room; but it becomes &nbsp; &nbsp; The Ordinary Object of the Player is to Send the Spot Ball into the Hat with the Red One after &nbsp; Striking the White Ball. &nbsp; usual every year to introduce amateur &nbsp; &...
PIANO PLAYING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
Gustave Garnier, a composer, has won his wager that he could play the piano ceaselessly for more than 24 hours without repeating the same piece. He played 27 hours 4 min. without notes, entirely from memory, playing 116 pieces, ranging from a concert hall waltz to a Beethoven symphony. Twice he was fed by an assistant, but with- out interrupting the playing. The performance ended when Garnier, who had been raving more and more for two hours, fell insensible. The skin &nbsp; was worn from his finger tips, and after he stopped his arms began to swell. At the present moment Garnier is still out of his mind, and the doc- tors say his condition is precarious. &nbsp; "The World."

STRANGE PLACE FOR A GROWING SPONGE. A REMARKABLE INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
STRANGE PLACE FOR A GROWING SPONGE. A REMARKABLE INCIDENT. Within recent years a large amount of commerce has sprung up in the sponge, pearl, coral and amber fisheries, &nbsp; and this is no doubt attributable to the enormous strides that have been made in the improvement of diving apparatus. Formerly, only naked divers were employed, and the result was the discovery of only a limited quantity of these valuable commodities, &nbsp; as the diver, even with an oily sponge fastened over his nose and mouth, &nbsp; could hardly remain below more than one minute, or at most two, to collect what was within reach. A sponge diver of to-day, however, will do the work of at least 20 men diving under the old conditions. In the Mediter- ranean sponge fishery alone there are more than 300 sets of diving apparatus employed, without reckoning the fish- eries of tbe Bahamas, Bermuda, &C. Naturally men who work at the &nbsp; bottom of the sea find curiosities of...
TRANSFER OF GAUGE. A USEFUL RAILWAY INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
TRANSFER OF GAUGE. &nbsp; On account of the various gauges of the railways in the States of the &nbsp; Commonwealth the economical transferring of goods can only be accomplished by the adaptation of a system by which the loaded trucks are conveyed from one line to the other. Queensland has a break on its border with New South A New Invention--Break of Gauge Transfer No. 1. &nbsp; Wales, New South Wales on its border with Victoria, and Victoria has a &nbsp; gauge at three places within her own borders. South Australia has two gauges—the Victorian broad gauge &nbsp; and a narrow gauge. In the "Leader" of September 15, 1894, there appeared an article and several illustrations of inventions to overcome the difficulty, none of which, however, were adopted. Mr. G. C. Hunter, the inventor of the System now described and illustrated, claims that it is the most practical &nbsp; and economical method yet suggested. The engine hauls the train on ...
CORONATION HOAX. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
CORONATION HOAX. Some English practical jokers have sent to a number of prominent per- sonages in Chicago society invitations to the Coronation. The cards were beautifully engraved. They bore the Royal arms, and the invitation was couched in formal phraseology. The cards were sent from London, &nbsp; &nbsp; and were believed to be genuine till it was discovered that in a corner in the smallest type there was an intimation that Americans could appear in the aboriginal costume of the North American Indians.
THE HOPE DIAMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 8 June 1902
THE HOPE DIAMOND. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Some time ago particulars were given in "The World's News" of the sale of the famous Hope diamond to an American merchant. A fortune &nbsp; alone was saved on the stone in the means taken to escape the duty of 60 per cent, which would otherwise have been charged on its arrival in New York. The stone was unset, and so subjected to a duty of only 10 per cent. It has since been replaced in its original setting, and put on exhibi- tion! The Hope diamond is of a deep sapphire blue, weighs 44 3-8 carats, and has about 200 facets. It is cushion-shaped, and reflects the light &nbsp; in a thousand brilliant rays. In the setting it is surrounded by 20 1½- &nbsp; carat white diamonds, which give it a dazzling effect. The origin of the stone is a mystery. One authority says that it was handed down from the earliest rulers of Egypt, and another states that it came from India. &nbsp; &nbsp;
