A MILLIONAIRE'S ADVICE [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

A MILLIONAIRE'S ADVICE " I never in my life," says Mr. John Wanamaker, the great New York mer- chant and millionaire, "used such a thing as a poster or dodger or handbill. My plan for 20 years has been to buy so much space in a newspaper, and fill it np as I wanted. I would not give an advertisement in a newspaper of 500 circulation for 5000 displayed posters or dodgers. I deal directly with the publisher. I say to him, ' How long will you let me run a column of matter through your paper for JB100 or £500, as the case may be ?' I let him do the figuring, and if I think he is not trying to take more than his share, I give him the copy. I lay aside the profits on a particular line of goods for advertising purposes. At first I laid aside 8,000 dollars (.£1,600) ; last year I laid aside and spent 80,000 dollars («£16,000). I owe my success to newspapers, and to them I freely give a certain profit on my yearly business. It Banker's Eye Lotion is a boon to mankind. Its properties are well...

FOOTBALL. I VICTORIAN ASSOCIATION GAME. I ROVEBS v. EAST FKEHANTLB. ? The above clubs met on the Associa- tion ground under the Victorian As- sociation rules, the Rovers having by far the best' of the game through- out the afternoon, and completely out- classing their opponents. During the first quarter the Rovers obtained 1 goal 2 behinds, to East Fremantle's 1 behind. At half-time the scores were-Rovers, 2 goals 3 behinds ; East Fremantle, 1 be- hind. During the third quarter the Rovers potted another goal, m airing their score 3 goals 8 behinds, to then? opponents' 3 behinds, and at the call of time the scores were: Rovers ... 4 goals, 4 behinds. East Fremantle ' 2 behinds. The gold kickers were-Tradinnick 2, Watson 1, Ryan 1. The attendance was very meagre. Addressed to a one-year m arried couple in Perth on the birth of a son and heir : Two things there are with memory will abide. Whatever else befall-while life flows by: That soft cold hand touch at the altar side ; The thrill...

WHERE LIES THE FAULT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

WHERE LIES THE FAULT. Sir;-There is an old saying, " Give a dog a bad name and hang it," and so it is with the Government Printing Office of this colony. In yonr last issue you mention that the Blue Book is in arrear, and it must be the Government Print- ing Office that is in fault. Has it ever occurred to you to look on the other side of the picture, or, in other words, ascertain whether the copy has been sent in and proofs returned punctually after they have been sent ont? In all fairness you should do so, especially in face of the fact that 24 men have been suspended owing to lack of work, and those men would have had just cause of complaint if they had been sent adrift when the office was full of work waiting to be done, yet not one word of complaint has been uttered, and the men are quite content to wait. That they would have spoken if there was need is amply proved by their actions in the past. Yours, etc. FAXE PLAT. Lit matters little to the public who is to blame. Their trou...

THE LAND FOR THE PEOPLE. THE DEFERRED PAYMENT SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

THE LAND FOR THE PEOPLE. THE DEFERRED PAYMENT SYSTEM. j At a time when the different Governments and politicians of the varions Australasian colonies are concerning' themselves over the vexed problem of how to induce the people to leave the over- crowded cities and settle upon the land, it is particularly gratifying to the population of Western Aus- tralia generally, to find, notwith- standing the established character for maladministration which the Ministry have succeeded in gain- ing, that the question of settling the people of this colony upon the land bas been most carefully considered, and at the pre- sent time the problem _ is being most successfully grappled with. An Egyptian darkness has for years enveloped this country, and laws, many of them obsolete and absnrd, have been permitted to remain on the Statute Book in spite of the fact that the utter worthlessness of such laws has been again and again demonstrated and appeals numberless in vain made for their repeal. The clou...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, MAY 15, 1898. PRISON REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN giiradag finies. SUNDAY, MAY 16, 1898. PRISON REFORM. One of the wisest, ablest, and most observant of the host of globe-trotters who have visited Australia in recent years is Mr. Michael Davitt, M.P., the cele- brated Irish patriot and martyr ar mau who stands pre-eminent amongst bis fellows for his per- sonal integrity, his honesty of political purpose, and straight- forward utterances, and who on account of these qualities has won the respect and admiration of friends and foes alike. The vari- ons political troubles which have unhappily convulsed Ireland dur- ing the past century have had the effect of consigning to imprisonment some of her best men, and amoug these was Michael Davitt. On account of this he has became an expert in penology, having viewed prison discipline from both the prisoners, and the supervisors' stand point. When, therefore, such a man as Davitt praises the Australian prison system generally for its humanity and rationality, his re- marks...

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 19.] ALEXANDER FORREST, ESQ., M.L.A, MAYOR OP PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

PUBLIC LETTERS TO PUBLIC MEN. [No. 19.] ALEXANDER FORREST, ESQ., M.L.A, MAYOR OP PERTH. Sir,-I sálate you as a man and a mystery. If we go abroad amongst the people of Perth, who should certainly know you best, so many and so varied accounts of your character will be heard that the more information one obtains the more difficult it is to arrive at any just conclusion respecting you. According to some, you are the Seventh Minister, the Power be- hind the Throne, the Financial Dictator of the Forrest Ministry, the Controller of the Meat Ring, and the Mephistopheles of Politics. Tour private character is described also as being the reverse of gener- ous. You are pictured as the liberal-minded mau who introduced the custom of eating asparagus into this country, and of giving the stumps to the poor. Further, yon are credited with having said " If I had served others as I have served myself, I should not be as well off as I am to-day." * # * On the other hand, you are re- presented as a b...

THE NEW YACHTING RULES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

THE NEW YACHTING RULES. To THE EDITOR. Sir.-At the preliminary meet- ing of the Yachting Conference re- cently appointed to .consider the rating rules a motion was carried in favour of unrestricted crews and unlimited sail. This will produce enormous boats of great displace- ment and gigantic sailspread, in- volving great expense in construc- tion and maintenance. For example, to compete in the 18ft. class the I boats will have to be 18ft. l.w.l., 30ft. o.a., 12ft. b., crew 20 men, sail area 1500 square feet; esti- mated cost, £225. These figures and measurements are only ap- proximate, and will vary as experi- ence dictates. In the 16ft class.-16 l.w.L, 25 o.a., 9 b, crew 12, sail 1,000 sq. feet ; cost, £.125. Fourteen feet class.-14 l.w.L, 21 o.a., 7 b, crew 9, sail 600 sq. feet; cost, £75. With " unrestricted crew " boats will undoubtedly be built to these dimensions, and the Hiawatha, Ventora, Olinda, Yelkie, and Inez will be outclassed. What has been the product of unrestricted...

A SENSIBLE AND TRUTHFUL GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

A SENSIBLE AND TRUTH- FUL GOVERNOR. Thus the British Australasian of latest date : " Although tele- grams have been appearing in the papers for several days past with reference to the riotous proceed- ings on the Kalgoorlie Goldfield in Western Australia, Governor Sir Gerald Smith has so far not sent Mr. Chamberlain a line of official information on the subject. Both our Governors and our Am- bassadors apparently want lifting ont of the old easy-going ruts." Ha ! Ha ! Also Ho ! Ho ! Like- wise He ! He ! Glory be to Pro- vidence, there was one sensible mau in the colony when Sirjon was stirred up with an umbrella-and this too was the much maligned Jerry Smith ! Magnificent house at the Theatre Royal last (Saturday) night. Ditto at the Town HalL The North-East Province fLegis- lativ« Council) contains 60,000 in- habitants and 750 electors.

HOW THE PIONEERS ARE TREATED. GOVERNMENTAL INGRATITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

HOW THE PIONEERS ARE TREATED. GOVERNMENTAL INGRATITUDE. The Menzies Miners' Daily News says : -Speaking recently at Coe, Mr. Illing- worth, the local member, said " he had pledged himself to endeavor to get a reward for Paddy Lawler for the dis- covery of Lawlers. He had succeeded, and Mr. Lawler had received a reward. He regretted that it was not so large as it ought to have been, but it was a re- cognition, which was some satisfaction. Since then he had made application for a reward to be paid to Tom Cue, and he had received a pledge from the Treasurer that an amount would be placed on the estimates this year as a small reward for the dis- coverer of this field." We wonder what form the rewards have taken ? That given to Paddy Hannan, the discoverer of the field that has made W.A., is a worthless town allotment in Kal- goorlie, on which he is called on to pay rates. The manner in which this Government is treating our early prospectors is a disgrace, - and the goldfields members sh...

MORE LOVEGROVE. IS THE LAW BINDING ON PUBLIC OFFICERS? [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

j MORE LOYEGEOVE. Ts THE LAW BUSHING ON PCBHC OFFICERS ? The Geraldton Telegraph of May 7 contains the following :-" About six weeks ago the steamer Sultan, though I in quarantine, came into this port and anchored alongside the jetty. She had received permission to do .so from the principal health officer of the colony. The townspeople protested strongly at the time. They held an indignation meeting and despatched a forcibly worded memorial to the Premier. The document was handed by the member for Geraldton to Sir John Forrest; who promised to give the matter his consideration. Nothing more was heard of the matter until yesterday, when the Mayor re- ceived a communication from the Under-Secretary, who forwarded what purported to be an explanation from Dr. Lovegrove. And a sorry explana- tion it is. Dr. Lovegrove simply reiterates statements that he made six weeks ago. At the time of the fiasco the Fremantle Health Officer's defence was considered singularly weak and unsatisfactory. ...

Roming. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

Rowing. (BY "AN OLD 'UN."')     "Take your time from me, boys." The competition for the Álphin Thomson sculling race, inaugura- ted by the West Australian Bow- ing Club, was completed last Saturday afternoon, when the final heat took place between Muir, 12sec., versus Collins, 18sec. It was thought by many that the limit man would gain a consider- able lead, but that Muir would ultimately row him down, a good and fast race being the result. These anticipations were not borne ont, for shortly after the start Collins, who was very unwell, ceased rowing, allowing Muir to paddle in with great ease, but from the clean exhibition of sculling given by Muir during ' the several heats he took part in in the handi- caps, the best man won.- Regret was expressed on all sides that, through ill-health, the previous winner, Eddy Kelly, could not; take part, and the meeting of these two (Muir and rielly) in the next contest will be keenly watched. Several very promising yo...

YACHTING NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

YACHTING NOTES (BY "FLYING JIB.")   The following is an account of the   late International Yacht Race taken from the Field, between France and Great Britain, in which it will be seen that the English boat scored a victory by the narrow margin of 15 seconds. I am glad to see the French boats making such a fine show, as it is quite in contrast to what they were 10 years ago, when it was the custom to buy all their yachts in England. Judging by the result of the race just sailed, the old country, nevertheless, is well able to take care of herself ***     The final heat for the Coupe de France, which was sailed on Satur- day last, resulted iu a victory for the English boat Gloria by the narrow margin of I5eec.} and as I the challenger has thus won* two j ont of the three heats, the cup will j be in charge of the Royal Temple   Yacht Club until it hus been cual - I lenged for and won by the repre , sentative of the club of...

The departure of Mademoiselle Serpolette is viewed with satisfac- tion by those who profess to ob ject to a " fair damsel in bloomers.' The cyclists of Perth have beet given au object lesson in the waj of cycling dress, and also in thc way of sitting on and using theü machines. The French maid will ride at Adelaide on Wednesday 01 Saturday next, and after making a tour of the colonies, will return to Perth, and probably join thc team of French racing cracks whe are expected to arrive early in the spring. For once the Con neil of the League have welcomed a proposal which is likely to open up a new era in cycling in the colonies.

HURRAH FOR JOHN FORREST. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

-n --1 HURRAH FOR JOHN FORREST. . j A.-correspondent writes to the Kal . goorlie Miner:-A curious rumour gained currency the other day; one, however, that has not been sub- stantiated, that the Spaniards had cap- tured Mr. Wittenoom on his way to London to take up the Agent-General- ship. The story goes that the Queen Regent, who has quite a mania for collecting curiosities about her, has several dwarfs, but not one decently sized giant. From our worthy old friend's now familiar nick-name, she was led to believe that he was 10ft. high-hence her anxiety to secure him! It is presumed he would have been re- leased as soon as it was found what a ' fraud he was as a giant, though a little ' prison discipline wouldn't have done him much harm.

Notwithstanding the strong counter attraction at the Town Hall, the complimentary benefit tendered to " Trilby " Coleman on Thursday night gave ample evi- dence of the manner in which Perth residents appreciate and delight to honour and assist good artists. The Cremorne Theatre was filled ; amongst those present being His Excellency the Gover- nor, Lady Smith and Miss Smith. The vice-regal party, although not frequently seen at Cremorne, gave indications of a thorough appreci- ation of the entire programme, and left the impression among the audience that it was not their own fault that they Were not more frequently to be seen at such places of amusement, as they appeared to derive just as much enjoymeut from the vari- ous items on the programme as any individual belonging to the common or garden variety of playgoer. * * # " Trilby." sometimes known as Mr. John Coleman, was in his best vein, and ...
