ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

ATHLETICS On Wednesday evening the W. A. Amateur Athletic Club was opened at Seguy's gym- nasium. The hall was packed, and a very pleasant evening was spent. Songs and recitations were rendered, and exhibitions of boxing, wrestling, foil fencing, and feats of strength were given. The members of   San Toy Opera Company were present. If the the club continue to hold similar entertain- ments to that of Wednesday last, the success of the W. A. Amateur Athletic Club is assured. Sam Grimwood acted as chair- man and referee.

ANGLING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

It may be of interest to followers of Izaak Walton to know that Kingfish have been rather plentiful in the Canning River of late. The proprietor of the Canning Bridge Hotel is an enthusiastic angler, and during the past few weeks he has landed several beautiful kingfish turning the scale at 40lb. and 50lb.

A GROWING SUBURBAN STORE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

A GROWING SUBURBAN STORE           Every day around our city can be seen evidences of the confidence of people in the prosperity of this State, and a case in point is found in the ex- tensive enlargement of the Highgate Supply Stores, situated at the corner of Beaufort-street and Chatsworth road. Only a year or two ago Mr. A'fred Huey began business at the corner, and was informed by the wise- acres of the neighborhood that he could not succeed, but the large busi- ness done by Mr. Huey to-day proves the contrary. Besides the usual gro- cery, wine and spirit, and provision stock, Mr. Huey is now landing a   splendid shipment of crockery and   glassware, which will be on view in a   few days. The ever-increasing popula-   tion of the Highgate Hill district has   made it imperative for Mr. Huey to keep an up-to-date stock, and finding   that va...

POLITICAL PROSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

POLITICAL PROSTITUTION. Mr. J. M. SPEED writes : Since the time in this city when a Mayoral can- didate slapped his pockets and said, "I have the money, my opponent has not," the expenses of obtaining a seat either in the City Council or in the councils of the State, have ever been increasing. If this state of things continues we shall have the     same apathy existing and the same abuses as are now rampant in the United States of America. In olden days in England the great outcry was "Do away with the rotten or pocket-   boroughs." We are probably at the even of getting rid of those existing here at present, but we are putting   in their place a rottener and far worse evil. If people are to be bought and sold like sheep, then why raise an out- cry against   Sheep Representation?     Our parliamentary and municipal posi-   tions are now being publicly sold to the highest bidder, a...

The Sunday Times SUNDAY, JUNE 15, 1902. TO THE EAST BY RAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

SUNDAY, JUNE 15, 1902. TO THE EAST BY RAIL. The remarkable apathy shown by members of both sides of the House on the question of constructinga trunk   line of railway connecting Perth with     every capital city of the Common- wealth is another evidence of "that tired feeling," which is the prevalent mood of the Westerners. From the Leake Government, it is true, but   little could be expected, since it is a Cabinet on a pleasure and self-profit trip, only anxious to make the voyage last as long as possible. But why the general public should have allowed so important a subject as the transconti- nental railway to lie neglected in the political rubbish room is little less than a marvel. We have wars and rumors of wars as to the wisdom of construct- ing a line to Esperance, and this acrimonious dispute threatened at one time to divide the State into two hostile   camps, ready to crush each other. The Goldfields demand thi...

CLARMONT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

THE Claremont election clearly demonstrated that the good people of that constituency, at least, have pronounced a plague on both the political Houses of this State. They neither want Leake nor Nanson, and consequently they have rejected the nominees of both, and have gone straight for the man who damned them both. We venture to think   that this would be the judgment of the electors throughout the State if their opinion could be expressed at the present juncture. Notwithstanding that Leake claims it a victory for his side, his miserable whining at South Perth last Thursday shows clearly that he realises that his mantle is falling from him, and that he is henceforth no more than a fallen and broken idol. The fact that the electors have demonstrated their capacity to take an independent political course, and to ignore both parties in the Assembly is a hopeful sign which predicts new blood and regeneration at the next general election. Mr. R. W. Allen advertises for sale ...

TRIAL BY TRICKS. CRUEL CAMPBELL'S COURT. NOT DANIEL BUT DUDGEON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

CRUEL CAMPBELL'S COURT. NOT DANIEL BUT DUDGEON.   The war is over and so should be the   career of Colonel Campbell as an officer of the local forces. Repeatedly as we have   been constrained to animadvert on this officer's petty peevishness and general unfit- ness for his duties, he is just as incorrigible as ever. Indeed, it is useless to waste words on him, and we only deal with his bungling and incompetence to keep his superior officers informed of the gross short-   coming of their protege, and at the same time to keep our readers posted with what is happening in our midst. The latest light-   headed episode with which this military nincompoop was connected is thus told by his victim :-"Last Sunday week I came into Fremantle as a soldier on board the troopship St. Andrew, and being off duty   on that day I of course did not attend any parades and so did not hear any of the orders given out. Now, among...

CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

"All the venal crowd." —BYRON. Another shipping combine in America. A fight between "Jack" and "Old Glory." Victoria has given Trenwith his Minis- terial quietus.     Lcrd Kitchener to receive £50,000. What will De Wet get ? And Botha? What will Seddon rant about now? Doubtless about the way he did it. If the King make Kitchener a Viscount what will he make Birmingham Joe ? ''Screw" maker?   The Governor-General leaves for England in the s.s. Miowera. He will travel via Vancouver.             The City councillors are anticipating a raid on the three and the other percents at the Coronation corroboree. The Labor Party backed up Peacock,   the silver-tailed, and voted for him to the last. Now that the war is over, what does the Herald propose to do with the Bushman's pennies? When some of the Boers surrendered they were clothed in sheep-skins. This has &...

VERSE—AND WORSE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

His mate: "I s'pose the SUNDAY TIMES settled him over the Kurrawang swindle" !!   ...       They were discussing a case recently wired over from Bendigo, in which a man named Aldridge, after a drunken-spree, was operated upon and a small tumbler extracted from his stomach. "Nothing much in that," interposed one of the party, "I know a man who swallowed six in one week" "Six what" ? demanded the others. "Six tum- blers," repeated the person who had presum- ably fathered a fiction.

WAYS AND WORKS. A BUNGLING DEPARTMENT. The Butcher Beer Brigade. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

WAYS AND WORKS. A BUNGLING DEPARTMENT. THE BUTCHER BEER BRIGADE. "Patsy O'Raddle" writes --Some time ago you had occasion to draw attention to the faulty construction and blundering in the erection of the mail station at Fremantle. You showed that the rain waters ware des- troying the whole of the plaster work inside. Now that the rainy season has set in again there is abundant evidence, notwithstanding your severe structures, that the fault has never been remedied, for even now carpent- ters, plumbers, plasterers and caulkers are employed in trying to make the place water- tight, and to any reasonable man in the building line this simply appears to be a   most disgraceful waste of public money for what is being done can never prove a success. Why not do it properly while they're about it? For the reason that is obvious— they have not the men who can do it. Again, we have the         New Goods Shed   on th...

ROTHERAM'S FOLLY. THAT SPARK ARRESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

THAT SPARK ARRESTER.   The spark arrester devised by Mr. Rotheram, of the Loco. Department, has   proved a complete failure, as might have   been expected. It has been placed on many engines, and in every instance has     simply not fulfilled what the inventor   claimed for it. On Monday week this fact was fully demonstrated, and in addition showed that the innovation was absolutely useless. A goods train left the Perth goods yard at 1 o'clock in the morning, and ar- rived at Pinjarrah, 56 milies away, at a few minutes to 8, making no less than eight stoppages en route. One of these was at   North Dandalup, and here the train kept the passenger train from Yarloop waiting   more than half-an-hour. The engine was   No. 23, Class G. The train was composed of only 47 empty trucks. The cause of the stoppage was through the draught of the   engine being stifled...

CLERICAL CHARLATAN. DOWDY DUFF'S DIABLERIE. WOEFUL WICKEDNESS OF "TWO WORLDS." A DERELICT PRIEST DEGRADED BY PELF. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

CLERICAL CHARLATAN DOWDY DUFF'S DIABLERIE. WOEFUL WICKEDNESS OF "TWO WORLDS." A DERELICT PRIEST DEGRADED BY PELF. The new Catholic journal, the W.A. Free- man's Journal, has rendered genuine service, not only to the Catholic Church but to the whole community, by its exposure of the wickedness and hypocrisy of the man of Two Worlds-but very much mostly of this world-the notorious Father James Duff. We commend both the writer and the jour- nal for this clear evidence of honest purpose and fearless criticism. It has long been a gross public scandal that such an incubus could fasten himself on that great section of the Christian community which has that marvellous history of 2,000 years behind it. Part of the history is made up with the lives of some of the noblest men who ever lived. To these Father Duff is the ultima   thule of antithesis. He is among the basest of humbugs ; the most degraded of "pious"   charlatans. Had we said this twelve months ago, those ...

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. A BASELESS BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

MUNICIPAL CORRUPTION, A BASELESS BUILDING.   A new town hall, to cost £2,500, is being built at North Fremantle, which is a very   praiseworthy and laudable manner of spend- ing the ratepayers' money. But eve this work cannot be carried out without the leprous   taint of municipal corruption tarnishing the   contract, which is hardly to be wondered at in a country which is morally corrupt from top to bottom. Possibly the ratepayers of   North Fremantle will be surprised at the narration of the following facts, which should also enlighten some of the councillors of that seaside suburb. A short time ago Competitive Designs and Tenders were called for the new town hall referred     to. The successful architect was one G.     Clark. His plan was well drawn, but when his specifications were carefully examined two of the councillors, who were practical men, objected strongl...

IMMITIGABLE MALICE. POLICEMAN PILMER. Curse Of the Collie. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

INMITIGABLE MALICE. --   POLICEMAN PILMER. Curse of the Collie. More than once it has been our disagree- able duty to direct public attention to the libels on the name of humanity who mas- querade in police uniforms. Our object in doing this we have always endeavored to keep clearly before our readers. It is not to hound men out of the force, or in- deed to do them any personal injury from ungenerous motives, but to protect the   people from unwarrantable interference and persecution. The police are not placed as blood-hounds to hunt slaves, but as an   organised human force to protect the law abiding citizens from the aggressions and assaults of the unscrupulous outlaws of society. They are, strictly speaking, the servants of the people, and they should ever remember the fact. When they forget it they are as great a menace to law and order and the preservation of the peace as the most abandoned of the criminal class. The moment they prey on so...

GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE.       "Printer" writers:—Certain of the em-     ployees of the Government Printing Office, including clerks and readers, made applica- tion a few weeks ago to the Minister con- trolling that department (Hon. P. Illing- worth) to be placed on the same footing as regards hours of labor as the clerical staff of other public departments, i.e, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., instead of the present hours, from 8 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. This was considered a   reasonable request, as.it was only asking for privileges enjoyed by fellow officers in the various departments throughout the State, as far as the clerks were concerned, and it was asking for the adoption of the same hours of employment as obtain in other parts of the world, for those men who com- prise the reading staff of the G.P.O. How- ever, it was not viewed in this light by the Illogical Illingworth, for he declared, in his reply, "that h...

AN EXPLANATION a fact worthy of notice among firms and individuals interested in horses and cattle iS the increasing demand which exists for "Kondo."

Proof of the worth of this   paration may be obtained by referring to the following well-known Fremantle firms and     individuals, who are but a few of the man using "Kondo," but whose names are men- tioned owing to the fact of being publicly known:-The Diamond Express Co., the Frank Cadd Carrying Co.; T. Hevron,   Customs cartage contractor; James Black,     Customs and general agent ; Alex. Ahearn, Customs boat and rail carrier. And "there are others."

For the Farmers. RURAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

RURAL TOPICS.   Prospects of season favorable. Year by year greater skill is noticeable with regard to seeding.     Drilling the seed in has become general, only a diversity of opinion is expressed as   which make of drill is the best. Practice alone will prove this. The com- petition with this class of implement at the agricultural shows will not be itself prove it. The field is the only place to test it. Broadcast sowing is still in favor with many, especially so in the South-western   districts of the State. The weather has been favorable for til- lage operations, and most of the fallowed   land has been sown. In the South-Western and Eastern dis-   tricts the early sown crops are not only   above ground, but present that appearance that is indicative of health and strength. Most of them were got in under favorable circumstances.       &am...

A Model Orchard. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

There are many object lessons in the south-west portion of the State, both   in the method of cultivation of cereals, roots, and fruit; and most of those in occupation of the land have adopted a   mixed system of husbandry, and in most     cases success has attended their efforts. One     of the many compact properties—and it might be added remunerative also—is at   Capel, on the Busselton line. It is owned   by Mr. Dilley, and covers an area of ten acres, in which are about 1,000 trees of assorted fruits, ranging from six to seven               years old. The varieties comprise the best     sorts of apricots, plums, peaches, pears,   persimmons, loquots, oranges, and lemons.           The...

HOW TO SUCCEED IN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902

HOW TO SUCCEED IN FARMING. Everyone wants to succeed in life, although       many are not willing to fulfil the conditions necessary in order to attain success. The secrets of success are industry, perse0       verance, honesty, punctuality good manage0   ment, and economy. We sometimes hear you men say: "Oh, there's no money in farming; the land is poor, and we can't raise good crops." Well, young men, if you let your land remain   poor you can't expect to be anything but poor also.     Enrich your land, put your shoulder to   the wheel, and don't sit down and grumble. Throw off your coat and get to work. Don't be a coward. It is the brave, determined   man who succeeds. He never says, "I can't." The successful farmer loves his work. It   is a pleasure to him, not an irksome task. He rises in the morning with the su...
