HOW THEY WIPED THE FLOOR WITH THE SINGLE-TAXERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

HOW THEY WIPED THE FLOOR WITH THE SINGLE-TÂXERS. BY PERCY E. MEGGY. Among the numerous debating and other societies challenged hy- the Single-tax League when it first started on its conquering career was that of St. Andrew's, whose fa ead-quarters are in Bean fort-street, at the Shearers Hall. The debate, which was the first of the campaign, was arranged for some six weeks ago, so that the enemy had plenty of time in which to study up the subject and bring the strongest argument« to bear on the strongholds of the Single tax. Every now and then a rumor reached the head-quarters of the league of the tremendous mental power possessed by the members of the debating society, of the formidable criticism to which the Georgian doctrines were to be exposed, and of the more than complete annihilation which was to be meted ont to them at the Shearer's Hall. To put it mildly, our antagonists gave us plainly to understand that in chal- lenging them we had put our head into the lion's den, and th...

MINERS AND THEIR RIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

MINERS AND THEIR RIGHTS. The very Government which a month ago endeavoured to confiscate the miner's right, and render the Crown license it conveys valueless, are now ex- hibiting remarkable zeal in asortaining whether or not the alluvial diggers actually possess these documents. Whereof the Kalgoorlie Standard dis- courses thusly : "The police, acting under instruc- tions, have been visiting the various dryblowers doing business in the vicinity of Kalgoorlie and Boulder. In each case the diggers have been requested to produce their ' miners' rights.' As is natural, many of the men have not the necessary permit to 'search for alluvial gold,' neither have they the means wherewith to pur- chase that necessary piece of parch- ment. We quite recognise that the clauses of the Mining Act must be en- forced, but it seems like supererogation to interfere with a number of impecu- nious diggers who, at the most, eke out enough to pay their 'tucker' bill. In nearly every instance the men in qu...

CIRCUMLOCUTION AND THE CIVIL SERVICE. " The Circaallocation Office v the most important- departan under Government.

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY. Fall of contradiction and vague ramoar are the cables which reach ns respecting the war which is alleged to be raging between America and Spain. A week passed away without any casual- ties whatever. Then followed the attempted bombardment of Manila, concerning which honours are about even. The Spanish fleet seems to have'been destroyed, bat «ii the other hand the Americans have nor. yet succeeded in landing, and apparently have had to sus- pend opera ti on ?< until the arrival of transports from San Francisco. The American fleet in Coba, after doing nothing in particular, has returned to Key West, and the Spanish fleet, after also doiiisr nothing in particular at Cape Verde has also returned to Cadiz. Wh;it on earth eirher side would do if they were at- tacked by a first-class Power it is difficult to say. The Americans have somewhat the best of it so far (although a few such victories as that at Manila would do them more harm than good), but there bas be...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, MAY 8, 1898. THE FEDERATION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN $utt5<tg tltmes. SUNDAY, MAY 8, 1898. THE FEDERATION MEETING. On Thursday evening Last the Australian Natives' Association made a gallant effort to arouse some degree of interest in the question of the federation of the Australian colonies, or, as it maj be better -expressed, in the forma- tion of an Australian nation. As we are ourselves ardent believers in the doctrine of national unity, we confess that we are compelled to make the ad- mission with considerable pain, that these efforts were attended with very indifferent success. The meeting was certainly large and appeared almost unanimous ; but there was plenty of evidence to show that this question was treated with the apathy which is characteristic of the attention or rather lack of it which is accorded to the consideration of political questions by the inhabitants of the capital of the colony. Through- out the whole ot the proceedings there was a want of interest and feeling displayed which may ...

THE ATRICAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

THEATRICAL NOTES. (BY "THE JOHNNIE.") " The Geisha/' with which William- son and Musgrove will probably open their operatic season in Sydney, was a most pronounced success both in New York and London. The libretto is of more than ordinary excellence, and the music is equally good ; while the songs are sore to become popular. The English caste was a particularly strong one, including- as it did Marie Tempest, Letty Lind, Mr. Haydn Coffin, Mr. Ruttard Barrington, and Mr. Wright. * * ' * Wilson Barrett is the son of an Esses farmer. He became a member of the dramatic profession at the early agre of 17. In 1874 he was manager of the Burnley Theatre, and 12 years later visited America, where he scored a dis- tinct success. " The Sign of the Cross," of which he is the author, was pro- duced at the Lyric Theatre in 1896, and greatly increased his reputation both as a playwright and actor. Other dramas from his pen are "Pharaoh," " Now-a days," and "The Daughter of Babylon." With Irving and...

POLICE RUFFIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

POLICE RUFFIANISM. The case reported in another column is sufficient to show that at times the police of the colony, from thosé highest in rank to the lowest, are guilty of arbitrary and despotic action, which calls for stern repression. Our readers will see by perusing the reports that a number of bootmakers who have peacefully abstained from work for the last week past, have been treated in a shamefully despotic manner by the police authorities. Although guilty of nb offence they have been driven like pickpockets off the public highway and placed on a lower level than the vilest criminals. * # * They have already protested vigorously against this tyrannical prostitution of authority, and there is no reason to fear that it will be repeated. But one man who had no more to do with the j strike than the writer of these lines was arrested and brought before the magistrates on a charge of assaulting Inspec- tor Newland. The Bench dis- charged the defendant, thereby intimating that, in t...

Roming. "Take your time from me[?] boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

(BY "AN OU> 'UN/') "Tate your time from me. boys." The handicap sculling- races held amongst the membei-s of the Swan River Rowing Club were brought" to a very satisfactory conclusion by the meeting in the fiñal heat of W. M'Queen, on the 15sec. mark, and J. A. Horsburgh on scratch. The scratch man had shown splendid form and pace in all his heats, and it was expected that he would make the limit man travel to keep his start of abont eight lengths, but this he was unable to do. M'Queen, although showing no form as a. sculler, with his long start successfully met and defeated all his opponents, and with practice and age may show his ability as a sculler later on in the regattas. Both men faced the starter, and npon the word go being given M'Queen made off at a great pace and before the word go was given to Horsbnrg, he had a distance of eight lengths to catch up. The pace was a very fast one, and slowly but surely the distance separating the two boats was les- sened, but it was ev...

Serpolette will want to ride about twenty times as fast if she wishes to lay any claim to the championship. There are a dozen girls, even in Perth, who could run over her. * * * There must be something seri- ously wrong with the performances attributed to the pretty little French maid, or she was lament- ably out of form.

[The recent dekth bf Alphonse Daudet will render .infcefe.sting the reprint- ing of orie^-«f his striking short stories, ffhisl is one that is lit£l4£ known in^En^l^h.

CHAPS, COVES & BLOKES. (A Tigeroo Flat Election Skit.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 8 May 1898

CHAPS, COVES & BLOKES. (A Tigeroo Flat Election Skit.) When Juggins, M.P., was at Tigeroo Flat, The bushwhackers bucked at his bell- topper hat : For the Tigeroo chaps they were rum chaps, Not the chaps to sit patient; like most chaps, But peculiar chaps, wanting polish per- haps, And not easy got over like some chaps ! And the chairman, he begged of the candidate that He'd say what he'd do for the Tigeroo Flat! Said Juggins : " I know that the cove in the chair Is a cove what'll see a cove listened to fair. And the Tigeroo coves they are square coves, They are honest coves, decent and fair coves, And respectfully ask that you'll   sample the cask Which you'll find at the pub, over there, coves ; And whatever the Parliament tries to get at. You can bet on me sticking to Tigeroo Flat.

DISCOVERY OF BABIES' BODIES. CONCEALMENT OR BABY FARMING. Yesterday morning the police, acting opon information received, excavated the grounds of the house on the Wan- neroo-road, and unearthed the bodies of two infants, one of whom had been buried apparently about a year, while the other had been interred quite re- cently. A woman who was alleged to be the mother of the children has been arrested. No details are available, the police being far more reticent than the necessities of the case seems to warrant.

THE ANARCHIST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

THE ANARCHIST. It was his lot to throw the bomb which was to terrify. Society, so that the rich should grant thro ugh fear that which neither love nor justice could force from them. It was a loathsome task for him, and many a time he longed to fly from it ; to hasten to some land where the Brotherhood, whose slave he was, should overlook him. Here, with Mary, his wife, he would lead a peaceful life, the like of which he had not known for years, fie had once had money, and he sought to make her rich ; he was honourable and never suspected of dis- honesty those with whom he worked, but they robbed him ; and yet the law could not touch them, for they were his partners, and had not gone beyond the limits allowed by the law. The first bitterness came to his heart then, when Mary had to work to keep them, and when work was refused to him. Then the daily insults that come to the poor because of their lot stung him to desperation ; those who sought work were but slaves to those who had enou...

THE STATE OF SPAIN. A BRITISH OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

THE STATE OF SPAIN, A BRITISH OPINION. The Economist in an issue pub- lished just before the ontbreak of hostilities, had the following on the condition of Spain : Not much sympathy is likely to be felt for. Spain among tbe Bri- tish people. They abhor cruelty, and the disposition to resort to cruelty as a means of coercion, which caused the revolt of Euro- pean opinion against Spain three hundred years ago,'appears to be as strong as ever. It is dne, say those who have resided in Spain, less to bloodthirstiness than to an incurable haughtiness, which in- duces Spaniards to regard all re- bels as persons who have outraged and insulted them, but the dis- tinction, though it throws light upon national character, is not one that diminishes horror outside Spaiu. The British feeling will therefore be with the Americans, bot it is difficult at the same time not to feel an emotion of pity for the ancient and proud people who find it so impossible to construct a government which shall fulfi...

(TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

(To THE EDITOR.) Sir,-It is a pity that Mr. Thros- sell, the mach respected Minister for Lands of this colony, should have: decided to oppose the Co^hió~rf-J' 1 wealth Bill of the late Federal Convention. It is a pity for his own sake. Mr. Throssell is per- haps the best of the whole Minis- terial bunch. He is an honest politician, and, take him all round, is more of the statesman than any other Cabinet Minister, not except- ing the much lauded chief, who ia dubbed the Right Hon. Sir John Forrest. To oppose federation on any grounds whatever is to be en- rolled among a crowd which pos- terity will not bless ; it is to be identified with retrogressionists, who are struggling to drag back and to drag down the country to which they belong ; and, what is more, it is to array one's self under the banner of a party that is doomed to an ignominious de- feat. The more's the pity that any man of genius and progressive political ideas should have decided upon a course by which he must become ...
