PREMIER'S ILLNESS. A SERIES OF RELAPSES. CONDITION ALMOST HOPELESS. UNIVERSAL SORROW AND SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
PREMIER'S ILLNESS SERIES OF RELAPSES &nbsp; CONDITION ALMOST HOPELESS UNIVERSAL SORROW AND SYMPATHY. The serious illness of the Premier, Mr. &nbsp; George Leake, has filled the community with anxiety and sorrow, and little else has occupied the public mind. It has all come so suddenly that it seems difficult even now to realise that he is at the door of death. Scarce 10 days have elapsed since his first indisposition. Then an attack of influenza which seemed to be mild in its character was all that affected him, and Mr. Leake paid little heed to it. Last Wednesday week, however, the affection occasioned hin &nbsp; &nbsp; some little distress, and he retired to rest very early in the evening. Thursday was a cold, bleak, cheerless day, dangerous and &nbsp; distressing to anyone suffering from influ- enza, but Mr. Leake felt somewhat improved by his night's rest, and insisted upon going down to the office. It was then Manifest to his Friends that...
THEY SAY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
THEY SAY That every politician has his price. That George's price was the Commis- sionership of the railways. That several other loud-mouthed Oppo- sitionists are bargaining for similar sops to Cerberas. That Kingsmill has his eye on the main chance for Number One. That a Martinique-like eruption is pending in a swagger dissenting church of Perth. That a deacon is suspended pending an inquiry into his explanation regarding a paternity case. That the chee-ild was placed in the vestry by his flung-off Loossie. That a leading choir tenor, himself in a similar fix, bolted on beholding the baby. That a Noise Suppression Crusade would confer a benefit on tortured humanity here- about. That Supt. Lapsley has, out of malice aforethought, started a Fire Brigade Brass Band. That the amateur windjammers are re- sponsible for a heavy slump in property adjoining the Fire Station. That under the influence of the deadly discord the neighbors' poultry is perishing &nbsp; daily. That the sen...
ARREST OF DESERTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
ARREST OF DESERTERS. As showing the attraction to foreigners, whether or not of British descent, that Western Australia presents we have to re- port that yesterday at Fremantle no fewer than 16 deserters were arrested. Of course, this may imply that the ships from which &nbsp; they fled were so disagreeable to their tastes that even with all its drawbacks the State was preferable to remaining on them. But this view can scarcely be entertained since the deserters were from three ships of a widely different character, and not likely to be all equally bad. The largest number came from the R.M.S. Austral, the floating city furnishing 12 of the police captures. Two deserted from the German mailboat, and yet two others from one of the sailing vessels in port. They will be dealt with by the authorities in due course.
CHEMIST IN TROUBLE. CHARGED WITH WIFE DESERTION. KALGOORLIE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
CHEMIST IN TROUBLE. &nbsp; CHARGED WITH WIFE DESERTION. KALGOORLIE. SATURDAY. At the Boulder Court this morning, Mr. H.W. Ellis, a chemist, carrying on busi- &nbsp; &nbsp; ness in Piesse-street, was sued for mainte- nance by his wife, Martha Ellis. She also sued for a judicial separation and the custody of her children. Ellis was further charged with wife desertion. Mr. Josephs, who appeared on behalf of the wife, objec- ted to an adjournment, as he had been in- formed that the defendant was disposing of his possessions, and probably by the time the case was heard he would not have a penny left. The Bench thought it wise to &nbsp; send the case before the R.M., and accord- ingly adjourned the case till Saturday, when, Mr. Norris assured them, Mr. Fin- nerty would be present. The accused was allowed out on an increased bail—two sureties of £50 each, and the defendant in £50.
NORTH PERTH REFERENDUM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
NORTH PERTH REFERENDUM Yesterday the ratepayers of the new municipality of North Perth voted at a referendum to decide the question whether or not the sanitary carts should travel up &nbsp; Fitzgerald-street. There were 189 votes polled, and of these 96 voted against the carts using Fitzgerald-street, 31 in favor of it, and two votes were informal. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "The Alexandra" tea-room, Barrack- street, are open from 8 a/m/ till 11.30 p.m.
CABLEGRAMS. CRICKET. AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN IN ENGLAND. BATCH AGMNST DERBYSHIRE. ABONDONED THROUGH RAIN. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
CABLEGRAMS. &nbsp; CRICKET. AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN IN ENGLAND. BATCH AGAINST DERBYSHIRE. ABANDONED THROUGH RAIN. LONDON, SATURDAY. A match between the Australians and Derbyshire was commenced on Thursday, the weather promising tn be fine as both teams took the field. Noble, Jones and Kelly were left out of the Australian team. The county captain won the toss, and took advantage of the excellent wicket provided. His team, however, made no sort of a stand against the deadly deliveries of Howell and Saunders, and the eleven were sent to the rightabout for the practically small total of 152. Howell was in fine form with the ball, and took four wickets for 8 runs. The visitors then went to the creases, and mainly through the able manner in which Hopkins (68 not out) and Darling (65) manipulated the willow, they passed their opponents score with the loss of only four wickets before the stumps were drawn for the day. On Friday the match was to have been resumed, but heavy rains fell dur...
MR. BARTON ABROAD. INTERVIEWED IN LONDON. Lord Hopeto[?]n's Resignation. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
MR. BARTON ABROAD. INTERVIEWED IN LONDON. Lord Hopetoun's Resigntion. Mr. Barton, the Federal Premier, has been interviewed in London. Speaking of Lord Hopetoun's resignation, he authorised the interviewer to give a categorical denial to the statement published by the Times in its issue of May 16, in which it stated that deplorable differences existed between Lord Hopetoun and the Federal Cabinet and that the latter had broken faith with the Governor-General. &nbsp; Mr. Barton characterised these statements as audacious and unjust asperations upon Lord Hopetoun. He said the he recognised that if the Governor-General's position in regard to salary and allowances remained unchanged, Mr. Chamberlain would have great difficulty in selecting a future occu- pant for the high position. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
THE BRITISH NAVY. SPEECH BY MR. ARNOLD FOSTER. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
THE BRITISH NAVY. SPEECH BY MR. ARNOLD FOSTER. LONDON, SATURDAY. Mr. Arnold Foster, speaking in the House of Commons, said that the supply of coal for the Navy would be extended proportionately with the means of storing it, and not as the results of any agitation. The Intelligence Department in the war &nbsp; had been strengthened. He recognised the need of some reinforcement in the intellec- tual equipment which ought to direct the enormous forces of the Empire, which were of great value even in their present unde- veloped form. There was room for a great deal of preparation in advance for the defence of the Empire, but he was not sanguine of improving the present condition in a year, or even in five or ten years.
LATE SPORTING. VICTORIAN RACING. V.A.T.C. JUNE MEETING. NATIONAL CANDIDATES SPORT SILK. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
LATE SPORTING. VICTORIAN RACING. V.A.T.C. JUNE MEETING. NATIONAL CANDIDATES SPORT SILK. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. The V.A.T.C. June meeting took place at Caulfield to-day. The heath looked its best, and a large attendance was attracted to the course, though the weather was squally. In view of the fact that the Nationals are on the racing horizon the meeting was especially interesting. Holkar, who won the Toolam - bool Hurdles, is at present favorite for the Grand National, and after his excellent showing the son of Wellington must take an immensity of beating next month. They breed racehorses both to run fast and to jump well in the Western District, and Holkar gained many friends for the National by the manner in which he negotiated the little sticks. Mensuration won the Wanda Steeplechase, and in romp- ing home as he did he beat some rattling good horses in Kaimate, Wooral, and Sind- hia. Mensuration is by the sensational Ade- laide Cup winner, Euclid, whose victory was emphasised by t...

PERTH HOMING SOCIETY. &nbsp; A race from Spencer's Brook was flown under the auspices of the above club yester- day afternoon with the following results: &nbsp; A. G. Anderson's Coronation (velocity 1496yds. per minute). ... 1 A. G. Anderson's All There (velocity 1496yds. per minute)... 2 C. Chambers' Trade Mark II (velocity 1422yds. per minute)...3 &nbsp; Birds from the following lofts also com- peted—W. Donald, H. Caporn, G. Bandy, &nbsp; E. Thomas, A. G. Hames, T. Tillotson and J. C. Cavanagh. It is a little over seven years since Mr. B. Makutz came to Perth from Melbourne, &nbsp; where he had been manufacturing safes, strong room doors, etc., for some 15 years. During that period he turned out hundreds of safes for the Victorian Government, banks, &nbsp; and other commercial institutions, which gave the nighest satisfaction. Since opening in Perth there has been such a demand for B. Makutz's safes that he has had twice to enlarge h...

LATE SPORTING. lying on the rails, Horonda on the outside being his nearest attendant and Maoriland last. The field closed with the leaders coming to the turn. Horonda led round the turn by a length from Willie, Fun and Mostyn, and won comfortably. A desperate battle for second place eventuated between Willie, Moyston and Fun, heads dividing them at the finish. Zone and Maoriland were toge- ther, last. Time, 1.3 4-5. Dividend, £2 10s.

The field wore sent away to a splendid start. Horonda was the first to show out, Fonto lying second, and Ottoman, Rigby and M.J. handy, Primrose being last. After going a couple of furlongs Ivory took Fon...
LATE SPORTING. GOLDFIELDS RACING HANNAN'S ANNIVERSARY MEETING. TRIPOLI TROUNCED. KALGOORLIE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
LATE SPORTING. GOLDFIELDS RACING HANNAN'S ANNIVERSARY MEETING. TRIPOLI TROUNCED. KALGOORLIE, SATURDAY. Kalgoorlie course, with all the latest im- provements, looked a perfect picture to-day, when the Hannan's Anniversary Meeting was concluded. The going was splendid, and after the good attendance on Wednesday the club confidently looked forward to a big crowd if the weather kept fine. The early part of the day was gloomy, but during the afternoon a change came, and by the time the second race came on for decision the stand and Leger enclosures were thronged beyond expectation. The totalisa- tor throughout the day was patronised freely. There were no sensational dividends, but the backers of Fun and Great Heart had good reason to be satisfied. Tripoli carried the bulk of the money in the big race, but the little son of Trident proved unequal to win- ning his third consecutive race, although he ran well. In the last two races the finishes proved particularly exciting. Egmont beat Acro...
THE NATIONALS. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
THE NATIONALS. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. The New Zealand double Battleaxe and The Guard hare been backed for all the money in the market for the Nationals at 100 to 1. Battleaxe has also been coupled with all the fancied horses in the Steeple. Mr. Frank Davis, a brother to the well- known "Billy" of that ilk, has taken over the Ellerslie Cigar Divan, Hay-street, lately occupied by Joel and Bob Phillips, where he will be pleased to see any old friends. The best brands of cigars are always kept in stock. W. Davis is returning from his trip to the East in the Arcadia. His racehorses, Kilt and Lucky Dog, are to be sent to Melbourne to be prepared for the Victorian spring meetings. There are two ways of doing things—the right and the wrong—and one must believe that Messrs. Wells and McMaster have been doing things properly at the Grosvenor, seeing that this favorite hotel is still main- taining its popularity. By keeping the best of liquors, seeing that their house is kept scrupulously clean,...
LOCAL RACING. BURSWOOD RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
LOCAL RACING. BURSWOOD RACES. The usual weekly meeting of the Burs- wood Turf Club took place yesterday, when there was a fair attendance and some good racing was witnessed. The judge was not in his place when the Galloway Race was decided, and for the reputation of the club it would be as well if this were not re- peated, as people are apt to make remarks. The first occasion Baby won, but as the judge was not in the box the race had to be run again, and this time Crissy was "livened up," and won comfortably. Jewel King went out a strong favorite for the Cup at 2 to 1 on and won easily. A protest en- tered against Reindeer in the Selling Race for interference was dismissed. Eos upset a warm favorite in the Farewell Handicap in The Stag, who started at 6 to 4 on. Details :— FIRST FLUTTER. Of 10 sovs. Four furlongs. J. M'Gann's Pearl, 8.12 (Cartwright) ... 1 C. Fanning's Eos, 9.12 (Fraser) ... ... 2 J. Monaghan's Jewel King, 9.10 (Dixen) 3 Carrick (Hancock) also started. Betting : 6 t...
DENOUNCING DUFF. CRITICISM BY CATHOLICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
DENOUNCING DUFF. CRITICISM BY CATHOLICS. As the subject of our special—Father Duff—in our last week's issue is the chief topic of discussion in Catholic circles, our readers will be interested in knowing what Catholics themselves say upon the subject. We have received several letters from them, and as the substance of them all is embraced in the following, we give it publicity. "A Catholic" writes:—"Your article on the &nbsp; &nbsp; Reverend (?) James Duff was in season, and if anything it was rather lenient, as nearly everybody—Catholic or Protestant—are &nbsp; &nbsp; agreed that the conduct of that impious person deserves the severest censure. His name has been a by-word and a reproach, and even members of his flock speak of him &nbsp; with the utmost contempt. Whilst he was &nbsp; in church he was out of mischief, but latterly, having no ecclesiastical work to do, he has been putting his foot into everything. However, matters will s...
BUYING OFF BUNGLERS. RETIRING RECKLESS ROTHERHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
BUYING OFF BUNGLERS. RETIRING RECKLESS ROTHERHAM. For a long time past not only the railway &nbsp; employés and the general public, but the managerial heads of the Railway Depart- ment, have been complaining loudly of the many failures and the gross abuses which &nbsp; have been so abundantly manifest in the branch of the service presided over by Mr. T. Rotherham, the Loco. Engineer-in-Chief. This gentleman by his wholesale importa- tion of his "sisters, cousins, and his aunts," &nbsp; to use the language of Gilbert, from New Zea- land ; bis experiments in inventions which have cost the State thousands of pounds and have been mostly lamentable and in some instances contemptible failures; and his blundering and indolence in the dis- charge of his responsible duties has had much to do with the failure of the railways to pay, and has &nbsp; Generally Brought Contumely upon his management. Therefore his posi- tion in the service was recently discussed at ...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TURF TATTLE. The Boulder Racing Club concluded a very successful meeting yesterday week, and everybody was well pleased except the un- &nbsp; fortunate punter, who will never abdicate in &nbsp; &nbsp; favor of the old axiom that the field will beat the best horse that ever lived. That inde- &nbsp; fatigable secretary, Jim Hopkins, should &nbsp; &nbsp; have a substantial balance on the right side &nbsp; after the accounts have been gone through. &nbsp; We have always contended that Tripoli is a good hourse, and although we did not expect him to beat Cadenas in the last W.A. Derby, we reckoned he would when thoroughly &nbsp; &nbsp; seasoned furnish into a rattling colt, and having recovered from the injury he re- ceived at the New Year's meeting the son of &nbsp; Trident is now beginning to realise our &nbsp; anticipations. &nbsp; His vic...
