Dutch Photographer II: Paul Julien at Madame Mathilda Richards’

first_imgLast week I wrote about Paul Julien’s arrival in Monrovia and his first impressions. After passing through customs he went to see his fellow countrymen, whom, as he writes in a letter to his parents ‘there are two of in Monrovia.’ They welcomed him and then sent him to Madam Richards where he found a room for the equivalent of 7 guilders a day.There was hardly any accomodation for travelers available, as Joe Richards, Mathilda Richards son, confirmed when I met him last year. He said that there was only one other guesthouse in town and described the rooms his mother rented out. There were five of them, and most had several beds.Paul Julien was someone who was very careful in spending money and he considered the amount he was asked to pay way too much. He claims that he would only be paying one guilder and sixty sents a day for the same room in Spain, where he spent some time preparing for his travel to Liberia. He tells his parents that ‘Madam is sure she is quite something because the League of Nations committee stayed at her place (of course, since there is no alternative!).’Julien continues to write about his experience with Madam in the confidential tone you would expect of someone writing to his parents. Not just Madam, but also he seems to think he is ‘quite something’:‘It is clean enough. Madam is a good cook, I have to admit, but I had to invest a lot for that. If I would have had it her way I would only have gotten fischerman’s bread. Madam is a grandmother and proudly shows photographs of her daughter who is fat as an elephant. ‘O daughter grown fat, o so fat, O daughter like sweet, like so much sweet; When she hears that I am Catholic she cries out ‘O old bishop die O too many people cry when bishop die. Bishop fine man. Fine fine oso fine man. All people crie when old bishop die’.Madam is Wesleyan; I’ll be hanged if madam knows the difference between Baptists and Methodists’.To prepare for his travel to the hinterland he is received by Mr. Gromes, the secretary of state, the minister of Internal Affairs and by President Barclay. When Julien is writing to his parents he describes Barclay as ‘a courteous civilised man, refined, friend’ but also as someone who ‘can’t be trusted’ , is ‘dangerous, cunning, a slavetrader and a consummate villain.’According to the acclaimed historian, Dr. Guannu, this impression could be caused by Barclay’s recent experiences with white people, in relation to the named slave trade accusations. In the text that is published in Julien’s book 8 years after he wrote the letter he gives quite a different account of the brief meeting and says that ‘His Excellency the President […]was very courteous towars me and I had an interesting conversation with [him] that showed how well informed the President was about a variety of situations in the Netherlands.’  The minister of internal affairs provides Paul Julien with a letter that ask the authorities in the interior to be of as much help to his research as possible. During the years that follow he will get the same kind of letter from each one of the (colonial) authorities in the countries he works in.Madame Richards enters the scene one more time after Paul Julien was invited to come and stay at the Catholic Mission, and he accepted the invitation. ‘Madam is knocking, she is in a bad temper because I am leaving and she is trying to sweet talk me into staying with some sweet bakery: “Here is a cake for you doctor, o so fine cake, o so fine cakie o so sweet. Sooooo sweet.” She almost sings it. The cake tastes like perfume. I will bath and go to bed. Tomorrow I will move to the fathers.’ …Where we will meet him again next week. But not before remarking that Joe Richards added to the story that his mother did not only run a guesthouse, and, as the advertisement in the Liberian Patriot shows, sell children’s clothes, but also ran a games and sweets centre for children. She must have been quite a business woman.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Huskies lose 4-3 in overtime to the Peace River Navigators

first_imgAfter a couple of chances both ways, and with just 15 seconds remaining in the extra frame, the Huskies were unable to clear their zone, and a boucing point shot found its way to Kyle Richardson who was all alone at the side of the net.  He made no mistake, firing the puck over a desperate Zack Blain, to give the home team a huge game three win.  Listen to this highlights package [asset|aid=1062|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=90de459de574ec8c6f49afcd64500488-Huskies loose 3-4 in over time to the Peace River Navigators_1_Pub.mp3] After Saturday’s orginal game 3 had to be postponed, the upcoming schedule is as follows:Advertisement Game 4 – Monday, 8pm @ FSJGame 5 – Wednesday, 8pm @ FSJGame 6 – Thursday, 8pm (7pm PST) @ Peace River (if necessary)Game 7 – TBD – @ Fort St. John (if necessary) Huskies lose 4-3 in overtime to the Peace River Navigators Both teams wanted a win in this key game, but it was the Huskies who took control early, getting several great scoring chances over the first 40 minutes, and forcing the majority of the play inside the Navigators’ zone.  But, the goals were hard the come by, with the pups capitalizing only once in the first, scored by Cam MacKinnon.  Early in the second, the Huskies would strike again, with Midget call-up Robbie Sidhu taking a dump-out from goaltender Zack Blain, streaking into the Navs zone 3-on-2, and feeding Cody Kalb for a tap in goal.- Advertisement -But, while Fort St. John would continue to carry the play for most of the second, the Navs would strike twice right at the end of the middle frame.  First, Mitch Kohut banged home a Kyle Richardson rebound, for a powerplay goal, to get Peace River on the board.  Then, 36 seconds later, and with just 8 seconds remaining in the second, Payden Wongstedt fell, giving Gerry Young a breakaway.  Young fired a snap-shot past Blain, to tie the game 2-2.Early in the third, Fort St. John would retake the lead, when Robbie Sidhu spun and fired from the high-slot, through traffic, and past Bretton Stewart.  But, in an echo of their game two collapse, the pups would let Peace River back in the game.  It was Kyle Richardson who tied it, when he walked out from behind the net and roofed a backhander over Zack Blain, to tie the game 3-3.The rest of the period would solve nothing, and the officials would determine the ice was in good enough condition to continue play, so the game went to a ten minute overtime period.Advertisementlast_img read more

L.A. win brings new low

first_imgThe Clippers could have wallowed in their injuries and given up because both of their point guards – Shaun Livingston and Sam Cassell – were out. But instead of folding without an experienced floor leader, the Clippers turned in one of their best defensive performances of the season and blew out the Indiana Pacers 87-64 Saturday night at Staples Center. Indiana was held to 35.7 percent shooting, and in a season in which everything seems unpredictable, the Clippers had a surprisingly easy victory with Daniel Ewing and Will Conroy running the offense. “Hey, everybody’s going to have issues,” coach Mike Dunleavy said. “Everybody’s going to have injuries. Some will get them more than others. It’s just how you take them. Your mind-set has got to be that I can get the job done.” At times the Clippers look destined to go nowhere, but not on Saturday. Not only did they have the blowout win, but they moved into the seventh playoff spot in the Western Conference, passing Denver by percentage points. Both teams are one game under .500. Corey Maggette scored 20 points with an efficient statistical line – 5-of-6 shooting from the field and 10 of 10 from the free-throw line. Elton Brand had 17 points and 12 rebounds, and Chris Kaman added 16 points and seven rebounds. The Clippers led 43-30 at halftime and held the Pacers to 35.3 percent shooting in the half. Whether it was the Clippers’ smothering defense or inept play by the Pacers is up for debate, but either way, the 30 points were a season low in a half for a Clippers’ opponent. Indiana played the previous night in Phoenix and looked travel-weary. Jermaine O’Neal had a horrible shooting night, going 3 of 13 (.231) from the field for nine points. Jamaal Tinsley led the Pacers with 16 points, but hardly exploited the Clippers’ lack of experience at point guard. With Livingston out for the season with a dislocated knee and Cassell day-to-day with a strained groin, that leaves second-year guard Daniel Ewing as the starting point guard. joe.stevens@presstelegram.com (562) 499-1338 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Foreclosure filings more than double in California

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe U.S. had one foreclosure filing for every 617 households in November, RealtyTrac said. The filings include default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions. Some properties might have received more than one notice if the owners have multiple mortgages. California had 39,992 foreclosure filings last month – one filing for every 325 households – up 108 percent from a year earlier and the most in the nation. But this was down 21 percent from October’s level. The decline in filings from October to November likely corresponds with a lull in adjustable-rate mortgage resets, Sharga said. Such loans typically start with a low interest rate, then reset sharply higher after an introductory period. The number of borrowers who took on adjustable-rate mortgages with a low rate for just two or three years rose sharply in the last couple of years of the housing boom, particularly in high-price states such as California. But many borrowers have been unable to afford the increased payments that come with the resets, and falling housing prices have made it harder to refinance or sell. A flood of rate resets for such loans has helped drive up the number of home-loan defaults in the last few months. Forty-three states saw more foreclosure filings last month than in November last year. U.S. homeowners increasingly failed to keep up with their home-loan payments in November, as the number of foreclosure filings surged 68 percent nationwide compared with the same month a year ago, according to a mortgage research company. In all, 201,950 foreclosure filings were reported last month, compared with 120,334 in November 2006, Irvine-based RealtyTrac Inc. said Wednesday. Last month’s filings fell 10 percent from October’s 224,451. The last time there was a sequential drop in foreclosure filings was between August and September, when they fell 8 percent. “It’s a little bit of good news in the otherwise murky real estate market right now,” said Rick Sharga, RealtyTrac’s vice president of marketing. “The fact that we’re seeing a 10 percent decrease is significant. It’s a good thing.” “We’ll see another fairly big spike in (foreclosure) filings in early ’08,” Sharga said. “Then there’s another group of loans that’s due to reset in May and June, so we’ll see another wave of defaults probably in the fall.” Nevada, Florida and Ohio had the highest foreclosure filing rates in the country last month, RealtyTrac said. Nevada reported one foreclosure filing for every 152 households.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Castillo on the rise

first_imgAlexander Munoz was supposed to beat Martin Castillo when the two tangled for Munoz’s World Boxing Association super flyweight title in December 2004 in Laredo, Texas. Munoz, of Venezuela, was attempting to make his fourth title defense, and he entered 25-0 with 24 knockouts. Not only did Castillo take Munoz’s belt, he did it in grand style by decking Munoz twice on his way to a lopsided decision.

Pipeline burst spurs action

first_img A portion of the lake apart from the spill area was reopened for recreation about a month after the spill. The California Fish and Game Department investigated the case because the 1,297-acre lake also is home to trout, bass and other species. The broken pipeline was one of three owned by the company that snake through the hills east of the freeway. A replacement pipeline held during a landslide in November that was attributed to rain. Arraignment is set for March 30. Judy O’Rourke, (661) 257-5255 judy.orourke@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Deputy District Attorney Daniel Wright said the pipeline break was first noticed last year by California Department of Transportation workers. After the 14-inch pipeline broke March 23, 2005, black oil spread over approximately eight acres along the lake’s surface. The man-made lake, which holds Northern California water flowing south through the California Aqueduct, supplies drinking water for a variety of cities in Southern California. Water from the lake – part of the State Water Project – usually feeds into Castaic Lake to the south, but the flow was shut off after the spill was noticed. A company official has said a landslide triggered by heavy rains was the likely cause of the break, sending the light crude oil down a hillside east of Interstate 5, down a ravine, under the highway and into Posey Cove. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has filed criminal charges against a pipeline operator at Pyramid Lake in connection with a rupture last March that oozed about 142,000 gallons of oil into the lake. The four-count complaint against Pacific Pipeline System LLC was filed Friday in Superior Court in Valencia by the environmental law section of the office’s Consumer Protection Division. “This situation is quite serious and that’s the reason for the filing in this case,” Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley said on Saturday. “I have every confidence our environmental unit did a good job in pursuing the criminal filing.” last_img read more
