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

BARNACLES. (Br TRAVELLER.) Ia the lexicons Barnacles are defined as " any anomalous growth or extraneous adhering matter or arrangement tending to impede progress. A person holding on tenaciously to a place or position ; -one who is a useless or incompe- tent fixture in an office or employ- ment." Are there any barnacles adhering to the body politic in this .colony, who are impeding its pro- gress io any way ? Have we any persons holding on tenaciously, or who are useless or incompetent fixtures in ocr Governmentoflices? I am sorry to have to admit that we have the barnacle family, or rather families, well-too well-re- presented in all branches of tbe ?civil service. All the so-called leading families who came out in early days, their sons, and grand- sons are in evidence in every de- partment, and they are not on the temporary list either, they are fixed for life in good easy billets, are well up towards the top of the list, and I will guarantee they will stick to the ship of state...

The World of Cricket. "When I says 'Hout!'—hont you goes." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

$%£ Äorlö of Cricket. "When I says 'Herat i '-hont yougoe»/' " The Darling of our Crew, as the Australian team nicknamed Joe Darling, their crack bat, owed mnch of his cricketing skill to his father. The old man never knew how to play, and at one time had a contempt for the game ; but, be- coming converted, he. with characteristic thoroughness, be- gan by giving his son £l for every run he made in big matches. When, under this forcing process, Joe developed his fatal facility for making centuries, the game be- came top expensive for the old man, who now gives £1 per run over the 100. Presently he cal- culates that he will have to raise the limit to 150, then to 200, and so on. That's the way to teach a sou the finer niceties of the game of cricket. # * # Which reminds me of a delight- ful book on Parsee cricket which reached me from Bombay the other dav. The Parsee pioneers of " ball-bat," or " hit-it-the-bali,,r had no such encouragement as Joe Darliog, for they were, the book tell...

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

CORRESPONDENCE. PROGRESS AND POVERTY. (To THE EDITOR.) Sie,-At the debate between the Single-tax Leagne and the St. Andrews' Literary Society, which took place in the shearer's Hall, Beanfort-street, on May 2, an account of which was given in the following issue of the SONDÂT TIMES, Mr. J. L. Clarke, M.A., who led the opposition, grounded his attack on the statement that, con- trary, as he alleged, to the teach- ing of Henry George in " Pro- gress aud Poverty," the rent of English agricultural land of late years had fallen, while wages had risen. I don't know whether Mr. Clarke is a constant reader of the London Times, but singularly enough that was precisely the ob- jection taken to the doctrine con- tained in " Progress and Poverty" by the weekly edition of that lu- minous defender of English Con- servatism at the time of Henry George's death. "The great and almost univer- sal fall in rents and the equally clear rise in wages almost every- where," said the Weekly (very weakly) Tim...

FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

FROM DAY TO DAY; One of the effects of the pre vail- ing: system of high duties is that a considerable amount of smuggling is being carried on in Perth and Fremantle, particularly in connec- tion with the bonded stores of certain large firms, who are pos- sibly being robbed as well. It is a curions fact that certain restaur- ants in the city are able to procure hams, wines, and cigars at con- siderably below cost price, .which seems to indicate that the owners as well as the Government are being defranded. It would be as well, perhaps, if some of the per- sons connected with the Custom House were subjected to a little surveillance. # * ? One of the necessities of the times is the introduction and pas- sage of a good Truck Act, some- what on the lines of English legislation. It is not very well known, but it is nevertheless a fact that most nf the big timber concessionaries whose huge areas of idle lands lie to the south of Perth, prohibit all trading upon the lands they hold. The re...

W.A. KENNEL CLUB SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

W.A. KENNEL CLUB SHOW. - The above show was held in the j Olde Englyshe Fayre Grounds, j Hay-street, Perth, on Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7. It was opened at 2 o clock on Friday by Sir Gerard Smith, who was ac- companied by Lady Smith and Miss Smith. His Excellency, in a few words, declared the show I opened, and spoke of the want of a club to fill such ia position as the j Western Australian Kennel Club had done. Speaking of the ex- hibits he said he was pleased to see such a fine collection, and at the same time hoped people would be stimulated to have much better dogs even than were there at the show. The show was a great suc- cess, as far as exhibits. Coolgardie, Albany, York and Fremantle were conspicuously represented by the excellency of their exhibits. i Alluding to the classes in Sr. BERNARDS, ch Moonta Leonas, Dunsley Milo, and Baroness Melba stood ahead of any other exhibits. Leonas is certainly in grand coat. Dunsley Milo was shown out of condition, but, despite that...

HOW THEY CONDUCT THE GOLDFIELDS MAILS. A CRY FROM KANOWNA. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 15 May 1898

HOW THEY CONDUCT THE GOLD- FIELDS MAILS. A CET FROM KANOWNA. The Railway Department of Western ; Australia and the Post Office have never been properly introduced unto each other. They "know of each other's existence, but are strangers yet-like Mrs. Simpkins and Mrs. Tompkins, who, though neighbours for many years, pass one another in the street with their respective noses in the air, filled with a I stern resolve to be wholly ignorant of " that other person's " identity, or even j existence, except as " a person." ! Accordingly, we have some curious anomalies in respet-t to the arrival and despatch of mails. What can be more absurd, for instance, than the closing of the mails from Kanowna to the outer world just about 30 minutes before the open- ing of the mails just to hand from that same onter world ? The trains are run so as to make this absurdity an especial feature of the business, because the . railway managers don't know the post office, although they are aware of the existe...

SUPPOSED SUICIDE. TIRED OF HIS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

SUPPOSED SUICIDE. TIRED OF HIS LIFE. About 7 o'clock this morning Captain Hardwicke of the Melville, when on the trip to Applecross picked up a small boat between Pelican Sock Post and the Crawley Post. Attached to an oar in the boat was a piece of paper, on which was written, " I am tired of life and have drowned myself. J. CHAPMAN." The boat, which was named the Austral, is the- property of Mr. J. M'Donald, a boatman who moors his boats at the William-street jetty. M'Donald slates that he left the jetty earlier than usual last evening, and the boat must have been taken late last night by the unfortunate man Chap- man, who, judging by the farewell letter had buffeted against trouble as long as he could, and had ended the «trouble by drowning himself in the river. The SUNDAT TIMES court's no man's favour, and fears no man's frown. The SUNDAY TIMES is the only metropolitan Opposition paper.

THEATRICAL NOTES. (BY "THE JOHNNTE.") Apropos of no actor in particular, bat many in general, the only "house" before which some people should act is one composed of the mentally afflicted, the blind, and the deaf and dumb. If the whole audience possesses these united qualifications the better. For the mentally afflicted are not fit judges, the blind cannot see the "business," tile deaf cannot hear the "lines," and tiie dumb, if they do hear and see, can only express their feelings to a limited circle. Oh! to be quadruply afflicted sometimes. * # # Two enterprising individuals contem- plate opening a theatrical agency in Perth. A " Hamfalo " home is another good idea.

THE TRUCK SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

THE TB.UCKL SYSTEM. Sir,-Is your issue of the 15th inst, you invite correspondence on the "truck" question. Shortly after my arrival in Nannine I was instrumental is. pointing ont, through the columns of the"Geraldfxm Express, an open attempt to introduce that pernicious system in connection with one of our mines, modi- fied tn this way, viz., that the manager of the mine was a partner of a local storekeeper, and in order to save him- self the annoyance of being asked for employment had notices posted for men at his partner's store, and every applicant for employment was given to understand that if he got a job he must deal at the said store. Some two or three months ago the manager took a trip to " dear old Hing- land," and left his partner, Mr. Store- keeper, to look after the financial management, and, such being the case, it has simply resolved itself into this: " If yon do not scratch my back, I will scratch yours to the tune of Walker." So all the employes at this particular m...

GOLDFIELDS TOWN LOTS. MUCH ALARM FELT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

GOLDFIELDS TOWN LOTS. MUCH ALARM FELT, The Department of Lands has re- cently issued a series of notices regard- ing residence areas at the Boulder, which has excited much alarm in that town. The local Evening Star summar . ises the position as follows : Briefly, the whole effect of the pro- clamation is that a price has been fixed i for the rights of 425 acres situate from [ Picadilly to Campbell-street. ¡ Lots situate north of Campbell -street, .£15 per lot. Lots situate south of Campbell-street, £20 per lot. Holders axe given three months from May 4 in which to pay the sums named. If not paid, the lots at the request of any outside capitalist may "be put up to auction and sold. Thereupon the holder will be evicted. It is to be hoped holders will make strenuous opposition to the demand as it affects every resident on the field. The valuation is not only excessive and based on a principle that is foreign to any just system of valuation, but the absence of any compensation for the d...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Sunday Times. SUNDAY, MAY 29, 1898. ONE FLAG! ONE LAW! [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN $mtoct£ Ernies. SUNDAY, MAY 29, 1898. ONE FLAG! ONE LAW ! Despite the tremendous down- pour of Friday night, the St. George's Hall was crowded to hear the Premieres pound his views on federation. And it must be acknowledged that none of those present were in the slightest degree disappointed. Sir John Forrest is not a very excellent speaker, nor does he, as a rule, appeal very effectively to a mixed assemblage', but on this occasion the greatness of his subject warmed him into a degree of enthusiasm which made him eloquent, and the general con- sensus of opinion is that on federa- tion Sir John Forrest has made the speech of his lifetime. * * * It wonld be impossible here to enter at length upon the masterly array of arguments presented ; it suffices to assert an opinion that they will have a great and far reaching effect upon the whole people of the colony, and more particularly upon those whom Sir John Forrest distinguished as his particular friends-the produce...

THE MINING COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

THE MINING COMMISSION. Over 15 columns of the West Australian were occupied oh Thurs- day morning last by the recom- mendations of the now happily de- funct Royal Commission on Mining. In order to arrive at the conclu- sions thus set forth some nine months of accumulation of evi- dence and of more or less perfunc- tory deliberation has been deemed necessary. And what is the result ? Not a single new thing appears in the entire report. Not a scheme is suggested which has not already been advocated by either the gold- fields press or the goldfields mem- bers and candidates for the last four years. On many of the prin- cipal suggestions there is dissent, and the dissension is marked by the same lines of demarcation as have been characteristic of the whole discussion in the press and on the platform, so that theonly visible effect of the Commission's la- bours ia to emphasise the differ- ences between the working and dividend-earning sections of the mining community, which we all know w...
