Subiaco Football Club

The Subiaco Football Club, nicknamed the Lions and known before 1973 as the Maroons, is an Australian rules football club in the West Australian Football League and WAFL Women's. It was founded in 1896, admitted to the WAFL in 1901, along with North Fremantle; the club is based at Leederville Oval, having played at Subiaco Oval. Subiaco was incorporated in 1896, establishing its base at a small playing arena within the environs of the Shenton Park Lake. During the Club's embryonic period it played in the "First Rate Juniors" competition from 1896 to 1900 and enjoyed premiership success; as a result, along with fellow First Rate Junior powerhouse North Fremantle the Subiaco Football Club joined the West Australian Football Association competition in 1901. However, it struggled so much that there were long debates as to whether it should continue after it won only eleven games in its first seven seasons but with the construction of Subiaco Oval on what was called the “sand patch”, the club's performances improved: slowly at first, but rapidly after the acquisition of two key forwards in Phil Matson and Herbert Limb for the 1912 season.

That year Subiaco rose from second last to their first premiership despite a thrashing from East Fremantle in the final, they again won premierships against Perth in 1913 and 1915 before loss of players to World War I gave them the rare ignominy of plummeting from premiers to the wooden spoon in 1916. During the inter-war period Subiaco were a middle-of-the-road outfit, though they did win a premiership from third in 1924 and played in three grand finals for the rest of that decade, only to lose each time to East Fremantle or East Perth, they were noted for a large number of outstanding players during this period, including ruckman Tom Outridge and rover Johnny Leonard, but as these players declined Subiaco began a period of struggle that would rival their experiences in the 1900s. They plummeted to their first wooden spoon since 1916 in 1937 and made an ambitious recruiting coup by providing local employment for three Victorian champions in Haydn Bunton, Keith Shea and Les Hardiman. Although Bunton lived up to his Fitzroy reputation and at times did work far beyond that expected of a rover and Hardiman did not, Subiaco in the four seasons from 1938 to 1941 won only 23 and drew one of eighty games, finishing seventh twice and sixth twice in an eight-team competition.

After the WANFL operated on an under-age format for three seasons from 1942 to 1944, Subiaco rose to fifth in 1945 and third in 1946, but this proved a false honeymoon. Sorely lacking in high quality players, Subiaco between 1947 and 1956 won only thirty-eight of 198 games, failed to recruit players of the quality that the two Fremantle sides and West Perth did, it was engaged in a consistent battle with Swan Districts for the wooden spoon, never finished higher than seventh in an eight-team competition. Late in the 1950s, Subiaco emerged from the doldrums in spectacular fashion when in its first final for thirteen years it kicked a remarkable 16.8 in the third quarter against Perth - a record quarter score for a senior Australian rules final. They beat East Fremantle to reach their first grand final since 1935, but were beaten by East Perth and in the following years Subiaco again struggled, winning only 69 and drawing three of 168 home-and-away games between 1960 and 1967 and never seeming to have good direction in their management.

1968, saw the club achieve stability through the recruitment of Haydn Bunton junior as coach and a record season from Austin Robertson at full forward, who kicked 157 goals and in one match against East Fremantle fifteen of nineteen. The club finished fourth every year from 1968 to 1970, but declined somewhat in 1971 and 1972. However, under new captain-coach Ross Smith and with the emergence of star players like Mike Fitzpatrick, Subiaco emerged for the first time since the Matson era as firm favourites for the flag during 1973 and duly beat West Perth. However, with the departure of Fitzpatrick and Peter Featherby to the VFL, Subiaco returned to the dark days of the late 1940s and early 1950s. In 1974 they reached the First Semi-Final only to lose to Swan Districts, but would not participate in the finals for a decade afterwards and finished last in 1976, 1979, 1980 and 1982. In the process they won just 44 of 189 games, in 1982 looked like a winless season before beating East Fremantle in the seventeenth round.

However, during this period every one of the other seven WAFL clubs won at least one premiership. Their only genuinely class player of this era, Gary Buckenara, defected to Hawthorn after three years with the Lions. Worse still, unlike that earlier bleak era, Subiaco were hit by severe financial problems and only community involvement during the early 1980s managed to save the club from extinction; the return of Haydn Bunton junior as coach after a long stint with South Adelaide was viewed by most Subiaco fans as the return of a master, it is remarkable how he rose a nearly defunct club to a major force in the WAFL. Subiaco moved from four wins to nine in 1984 and rose to second behind East Fremantle in 1985. Although it was their first finals appearance since 1974, Subiaco did not disappoint but failed by five points. However, 1986 saw them better, beating VFL club St Kilda in the Foster's Cup and losing only four games all year - their second-best home-and-away return behind 1912 - before recovering from a thrashing from East Fremantle to demolish that team in the Grand Final by sixty-nine points.

The King v. Haas

The King v. Haas, 1 U. S. 9 is a decision of a Pennsylvania provincial court, issued when Pennsylvania was still an English colony. It is among the first decisions that appear in the first volume of United States Reports, is among the earliest surviving reports of judicial proceedings in North America, it is one of the first attempts to apply the writ of habeas corpus an established principle of English law, in the English colonies that became the first thirteen states of the United States of America. None of the decisions appearing in the first volume and most of the second volume of the United States Reports are decisions of the United States Supreme Court. Instead, they are decisions from various Pennsylvania courts, dating from the colonial period and the first decade after Independence. Alexander Dallas, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania lawyer and journalist, had been in the business of reporting these cases for newspapers and periodicals, he subsequently began compiling his case reports in a bound volume, which he called "Reports of cases ruled and adjudged in the courts of Pennsylvania and since the Revolution".

This would come to be known as the first volume of Dallas Reports. When the United States Supreme Court, along with the rest of the new Federal Government, moved in 1791 to the nation's temporary capital in Philadelphia, Dallas was appointed the Supreme Court's first unofficial and unpaid Supreme Court Reporter. Dallas continued to collect and publish Pennsylvania decisions in a second volume of his Reports, when the Supreme Court began hearing cases, he added those cases to his reports, starting towards the end of the second volume, 2 Dallas Reports. Dallas would go on to publish a total of 4 volumes of decisions during his tenure as Reporter. In 1874, the U. S. government created the United States Reports, numbered the volumes published as part of that series, starting from the first volume of Dallas Reports. The four volumes Dallas published were retitled volumes 1–4 of United States Reports; as a result, decisions appearing in these early reports have dual citation forms. For example, the complete citation to The King v. Haas is 1 U.

S. 9. Dallas's report of this case, as with many of his early decisions, does not include the actual language of the court's decision, but only describes the proceedings in the incomplete and general terms that has evoked criticism from generations; the nature of the accusation against Mr. Haas are lost to history. What is known is that the defendant asked the court to compel the prosecutor to either bring the case to trial, or dismiss it, it is not known. The court denied the defendant's motion, saying that it would not compel the Attorney General to act unless the defendant demonstrated that he suffered some type of oppression as a result of the Attorney General's delay. Dallas's report of the case includes a footnote that makes mention of a habeas corpus statute enacted on February 18, 1705; such an enactment would appear to be a Pennsylvania colonial statute modeled on the English Habeas Corpus Act of 1679, interpreted not to apply to the North American colonies. However, the language of the Pennsylvania act is unknown, it may not have been in effect in any case.

The British crown repealed such colonial enactments. At any rate, Dallas's report includes so little of the detail of the case, including the charges laid, the date of Haas's arrest, or the date the indictment came down, that no meaningful habeas corpus analysis is possible. Nor is it possible to determine whether Haas sought a speedy trial. What is clear is that at this stage of colonial development, Haas appears to have no rights to either habeas corpus, or to a speedy trial of whatever charge he faced. Hall, Kermit, ed.
