MORE EXTORTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

MOEE EXTORTION. i _ i _ ; A feeling: of intense and un- mitigated disgast spread through the colony when it became known that an increase of no less than 50 per cent, is to be made on all goldfields' railway freights. It is jnstly regarded as another wholly unjustifiable attempt to extort mouey troin the leading industry of the colony, and such an action is one which even Paul Kruger' need not be ashamed of. In fact, as a stroke of policy, it is ou a pir with Krugerism, for it is another exemplification of the fact that the goldfields are regarded simply as a milch cow for the political ticks and leeches of the Government majority to suck at. Every article of consumption used on the gold- fields will be enormously increased in price by this outrageous exac- tion, and life on the fields, already difficult enough, will be rendered far more difficult than ever before. Galvanised iron, one of the princi- pal materials used in building, has already gone up 25s. per ton ; while many of th...

Roming. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

ftobmtg. (BY "AN OLD 'UN.") "Take your time from me, boys." Before the next issne of these notes the Fremantle Regatta of 1898 will be one of the events of the past, and, judging from the interest being shown, especially in the maiden and juniorevents,should turn out, as it promises to do, one of the most successful of the re- gattas held by the sea-side club, and the Fremantle committee are leaving no stone unturned to make it both a financial and an aquatic success, and all well wishers of the sport will be glad to hear of it being both, as if it should re- sult in a financial success, it means a long lease of fresh life and vigor to the club, and that it wants, and badly too. # * * The regatta will be held next Wednesday, June 1. The first race .starting at 1 o'clock sharp, and having some nine races to bring off, besides several other kinds of sports to while away the intervals between the races, punc- tuality will have to be shown to carry the races through during the afternoon...

FOOTBALL. NORWOOD ALBERTS V. IMPERIAL JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

FOOTBALL. NORWOOD ALBERTS V. IMPERIAL JUNIORS. Won by the former by 4 goals 8 be- hinds to 2 goals 6 behinds. E. Murphy, Stevenson, and Blackburn, for the win- ners, played well. The game was evenly contested. A match was played on Queen's Birthday between teams from Perth and Claremont, and resulted in a win for Perth by 13 points to four. Tries were secured for the winners by Smith (1) and Ball (2j, two of which were con- verted into goals by Norman. Mac- queen kicked a goal from the field for the losers. Little Platt-Betts has gained the world's record again hy 2-5ths of a second. The season just commencing in England should see the record down to near lmin. 30sec. When the electric pacers get going in front of some of the " cracks *' some sensational times will be recorded. There is talk of an amateur cycling club as well as a social and touring dab being formed in the city. Something of the kind is badly wanted. Racing has had its day, and the sooner it gets knocked on the head...

IS IT TRUE: [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

IS IT TRUE: í nat large sums of money are daily being wasted at Mundaring ? That ditto is the case at Fremantle Harbour Works ? That the Government, although the boom is over, are still spending at boom rates? That a huge deficit is piling up ? That the banks are putting the screw on everybody ? That there is more adulteration in Perth than any other Australian city ? That the SUNDAY TIMES is about to expose a few cases of this sort ? That some big firms will suffer? That Ewing is going to oppose Federa- tion? That Moran is about to join the Op- position ? That the recommendations of the Mining Commission are all stale platitudes ?

A NATION'S MOURNING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

À NATION'S MOURNING. Amid the turmoil of the world's ad- vance, Its haste and roar, Men spare the time to give a backward glance To view once more The grand majestic dignity of one Whose work is o'er, whose race is now just run. Oh, Gladstone, man of now and yester- day, As hence you go Into the dim mysterious afterway Which no men know, Into the laud of shadowy hopes and fears, Which is the end, to us, of all careers. The. world's eternity of strife may cease While outward goes A soul still panting from its late release From earthly woes ; Still panting from the world's cares of a life Spent 'mid the battle heat of nation strife. Around thy bed the world bare-headed stand In sorrow bowed, Men whisper soft thy name in every land, And now a cloud Has covered with an universal pall And crown the world with sorrows coronal. Men who, when in the pride of man- hood's prime, Tour will opposed, Now when the boundary gate of mortal time Has calmly closed, Hold out their hands and old defeat...

GLADSTONE. "The stately column's brote, The beacon fire is quenched in smoke ; The trumpet's silver sound is still, The warder pilent on the hill."-Scott. " He looks like a rock scarr'd by the thunder."-American Visitor. Like a rock scarr'd by the thunder of years, The Grand Old Man to my vision appears. When first I beheld him. in that Temple of Fame, The Hall of Westminster we so proudly do name. He seem'd like a warrior and leader in fight ; Or like some ancient, bold and chival- rous knight ; Though knighthood and war were - foreign alike To him who only for freedom did strike. The man of the nation, I gaze at him now, With keen piercing eye and grand mas . sive brow, With face of repose and mcuth of firm will, The picture I saw then is before me still His name at that time was a power in the land, He was leading a hopeful and conquer- ing band, "The flowing tide he cried " is with our side; . For triumph we may then with patience abide." The flowing tide rolled ou with resist- ...

[?]enings From Home. "Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

Evenings from home (BY "THE PLAYGOER.") " Leave off your damnable faces, and begin." "A hit, a very palpable hit," every on» who has witnessed "Mrs. Quinn's Twins," at the hands of the Maggie Moore combi- nation, must describe the perform- ance. Hence a word for the drama itself will not be out of place. Specially written for Maggie Moore by Clifford Robertson, every scope is properly given this talented actress to pilot the play to victory, and from her initial entrance to the final picture, that she avails herself of any and every opportunity is a foregone con- clusion. * * * But, thongh the drama is equal to the best of its modern proto- types, I hope, without being con- sidered hypercritical, I may be allowed to say that it only em- phasises the fact that playwrights consider the laws of successful comedy-drama hidebound, and un- alterable as the laws of the Medes and Persians." * **   A sketch of the plot, which I shall introduce anon, will bear this out, and the f...

The World of [?]eels. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

the World of Wheels. (BY " THE WANDERER.") Some very sensible things were said last Friday evening at the quarterly meeting of the League. The address of the president was quite opportune, and shows that he is the right man in the right place. The numbers were counted before the meeting opened, and the antagonists of the Press therefore thought discretion the better part of valour, and were discreetly silent. # * # Racing men to a man are in favour of the introduction of the totalisator. The meeting was un- animous in the idea that the totalisator would meet the betting difficulty. The ineffectual effort to stamp out betting as it is at present carried on has borne home to the officials that it was better to accept the alternative, and attempt to control it. * * * There is no doubt that if some- thing is not done at once that game will be played down as low as it is possible to play it. Who for one moment would argue that the betting had nothing to do with the stiff riding which wen...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE FEDERAL QUESTION. LETTER FROM THE FEDERATION LEAGUE. PERTH, Western Australia. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. THE FEDERAL QUESTION. LETTER FROM THE FEDERATION LEAGUE. PERTH, Western Australia. To THE EDITOR. Dear Sir,-As jour readers are aware the federal campaign is now being fought in the sister colonies, but, though exciting our warmest hopes for its success, it has not extended to this colony owing to the peculiar provisions of the En- abling Act. By that Act the Federal Consti I tution, having passed the Conven- tion, must be approved by Parlia I ment, and it rests with that body to say whether the Constitution is or is not to be submitted to the direct vote of the people of this colony. This feature of our legis- lation has tended to lull the vigi- lance of those who are quite ready to work and vote for federation should the occasion arise. The opinion appears too widely spread that until Parliament has remitted the Constitution to the people it would be idle to take up arms on behalf of a cause which, though stirring the enthusiasm of our sister colonies, is, in its p...

PERTH AND ITS POLICE. AN ESTIMATE OF THE FORCE NEEDED. II. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 29 May 1898

PERTH AND ITS POLICE. AKT ESTIMATE OF THE FORCE FEEDED. IL To obtain an idea of the fora necessary for the proper protection of the city it will be necessary tc divide it into five sections. Ai present constables patrol thí streets no farther west than Have luck-street, and the beat which inclndes that street is of such dimensions that the patrol ie necessarily of a most perfunctorv nature. Colin-street and the upper part of Hay-street West are quite without police protection, if we except the patrol made by a mounted constable between the hours of 7 and midnight, and that only affects Hay-street West. Similarly other parts of the city are quite without protection. To overcome the present shortage I would suggest the division of the metropolis into five districts. The central division would be worked from the central station in Bar- rack-street. This wonld need to be sab-divided and portioned into the A sub-division, of which the boundaries would ran as follows: Starting from the ce...
