The first six overs produced six runs and four maidens. in the seventh over Beddin was caught by Jeffery off P. Kelly for 2. E. Marchant filled the vacant crease, and some good hitting was expected. He-was severely in jured on the band, and had only made a single when he was disposed of in exactly the same manner as Beddin. The downfall of the West then began. J. Broadfoot was bowled by W.

CONDITION OF PERTH. A STRONG PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 27 April 1897
CONDITION OF PERTH. A STRONG PROTEST. "Stink Hater" writes to the Herald, as follows :-It appears from your account in the Morning Herali of the 14th instant that .the Government is negotiating for a display of fire-works on Jubilee? night, probably at the Esplanade. Is it possible that the Govern ment of this colony would be guilty of such an abominable action ? Would it invite the poor hard-working fathers and mothers and the little children to go and see fire-works and celebrate the record reign of their Queen in such a filthy, stinking place as the Perth Esplanade, reeking with the rotten, stinking muck that no words in the English language can describe I. Last Coxing Day I went down like a few other poor fools, for a walk, but no one need tell me where to find the Esplanade -the smell from the vile mounds of rubbish of all descriptions that the Council and the Government allow to ba shot oat on the Esplanade would poison you a mile off Why not take the unfortunate wretches of P...

The Advertiser. TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 27 April 1897
TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 1897. THE Government have decided to take part in the celebration of the Queen's reign, by sending a military party to the Mother country. No more absnrd action could nave been, taken. The party that will proceed to London consists of 30 men, and we suppose they are to be re presentative of the defence force of this colony. We fail to see how any West Australian can take pride in this military contingent when it is merely representative of a force that would be almost useless in the event of war being declared against Britain. Any one who has seen the West Australian volunteers at work must hare been astonished that a country claiming to be rich and pros perous should rely upon it for defence. This colony owes, or soon will do so, the British money lender £12,000,000. and municipal and other loans amounting to fully as mnch again, while the resources of the colony are placed at a very high figure per head of the population, and to protect all this wealth and the l...
AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 27 April 1897
AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. To be easily described a thing mnab have olea? outlines and unmixed colo-s. In other w.>rds it must be simple. A rent in one's clothing1, a boil on one's body, a tumble while walking1, the shape of a box, &o , are easily ?et forth in words. On the contrary the oomplex and comprehensive things puzzle the mind and take the meaning from language. It was for this reason that Miss Sabina Mitchel!, alluding to an experience of illness, says :-" At this time there came upon me au indescribable sensation. It was as if the powers of life were going to foil me, and I should sink down without help, as a stone sinks in water. Yet in saying this I convey no adequate idea of the nature of that feeun5. I hope I shall never have it again. " The illness which led to it began in the spring of 1892. My health appeared to give way all at once. I fonnd myself tired, heavy, and feeble. My appetite was poor, and after eating I had much distress at the stomach and pai...

OUR OPEN COLUMN THE OVE BCEOW DING OF THE DUNSKY ST. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,-I should not have troubled you with a further le'ter on this subject had not Captain Douglas mis-stated the facts. I will not condescend to retaliate with personalities - abuse is no .rgument. It does not concern the case how many journeys were made from the Town Jetty, or that there was on y the crew in the last boat. The point is-Did Captain Dónelas over crowd his boat or did he not I I did not ru*h madly, iqto print with no ground for my , allegations. I not only saw for myself, but gathered information from many who were on the boat, and these latter ail said that the boat was overcrowded, and that no police in spection was made from what they saw. Capt. Douglas knows very, well that there were fully 50 people on the beach when he came and warned them of the consequence of not returning then. At this moment I and my friends bad just come, on to the beach, and bad had no conversation upon the matter with, an...
