East Fremantle v. Subiaco. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
East Fremantle v. Subiaco. &nbsp; Some five or six hundred people assem- bled on the Fremantle Oval to witness this match. The play throughout the first half was very one-sided, the Subiaco team being outclassed by their opponents. In the latter part of the game, however, the visitors showed some fine play, but East, who had a good lead, were "taking it &nbsp; easy." &nbsp; The East Fremantle team was without &nbsp; the services of Palmer, Vincent, Newton and Foletta. Kane, Hare, Wilson and Short were absent from the Subiaco team, which played two men short throughout, On the bounce East asserted themselves, &nbsp; and soon had the visitors in trouble. Toohey &nbsp; got a mark, and booted the first goal. The &nbsp; &nbsp; East had things all their own way right up &nbsp; to the ringing of the quarter-time bell, when the scores were East Fremantle, 6.3 (39 points). Subiaco, nil. After the change of ends Subiaco r...
THE STOCK ROUTE. ITS SHAMEFUL STATE. Mobility of Meat Monopolists. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
THE STOCK ROUTE. ITS SHAMEFUL STATE. Mobility of Meat Monopolists. We have received a wail from West Kim- berley anent the disgraceful state of the stock route, and the wailer appears to have good grounds for his lachrymose lamentation. West Kimberley is one of the meat-growing centres of the State, and the producers are at a great disadvantage through their isolated position in the far north. It is not the great &nbsp; monopolists like Connor, Doherty, and Durack who suffer, but the small producer who has not the Riches of Dives behind him, and has to make this precarious industry (to him) pay by the hardest of toil and the sweat of his brow. The bulk of the stock in West Kimberley is in the hands of the monopolists, who, knowing that they have the control of the price of meat, ship their stock to the centres of distribution. The smaller producers, who are not so for- tunate from a capitalistic point of view, have to overland their cattle, and with the disgraceful condition...

LATE SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
LATE SPORTING. &nbsp; Nominations for the Coolgardie Handicap and Cup close to-morrow. The entries for tHe Helena Vale meeting next Saturday are very satisfactory, and &nbsp; Secretary Turner should have a bumper attendance at his prettily-situated and well appointed course. The weights will be &nbsp; declared to-morrow. The Canning Park Turf Club follow Helena Vale on Saturday, July 12, and thus it will be quite refreshing to have a little racing in the metropolis after our few weeks' spell. The programme is excellently put together, and owners should not forget that nomina- tions close at 5 p.m. on Tuesday next. Bert Holmes left Adelaide on Thursday, &nbsp; and will arrive to-morrow in the Ophir. His &nbsp; horses, Sport Royal and Newark, are on board the Pilbarra, which is due at Fre- mantle to-day. &nbsp; Ernie McKeon, with his team of race- horses, is also on board the Pilbarra. Weights for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups will be...
THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. HARRY RICKARDS' COMBINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
THEATRICAL THEATRE ROYAL. HARRY RICKARDS' COMBINATION. Notwithstanding the rival variety show at the Queen's Hall the Harry Rickards' com- bination at the Theatre Royal has achieved an immense success during the week. The &nbsp; constellation of artists has shone with stars &nbsp; of the first magnitude, and down to the smallest details the vaudeville lovers have been delightfully catered for. The beautiful statueque Venus, Mdlle. Lotty, the marvel- &nbsp; lons club' swinging of Derenda and Breen, J. W. Winton with his apparently human mechanical McGinty; the magnetic marvel in &nbsp; her characteristic songs, Miss Peggy Pride ; &nbsp; the wonderful hand-balancing of Zobedie ; the turn of the Casselli sisters, of Fanny Powers, of Neva Carr-Glyn, and a host of others conduce to make the entertainment pleasing, Surprising and mirth-provoking in the highest degree, and we fully agree with the line in the bills, "The show is absolutely great."
GREMORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
CREMORNE "Lost in London" has held the boards at this house during the latter portion of the week with great success. The piece is one of the old-stock dramas which the craze for melodrama is causing to be lost to us. The characters were all well allotted, the piece was well staged, and every attention paid to details. As Job Armroyd. Mr. F. C. Mortyne played with vigor, and as Nelly Armroyd, the erring wife, Miss Ettie Wil- liams surpassed herself. Mr. Chas. Bryant scored as Blinker, the part giving him scope for showing versatility, and it was a com- plete change from his roles in previous pieces, wherein he had played the "heavies." As Gilbert Featherstone Mr. D. L. Dalziel showed that hts interpretation had been carefully studied. As Teddy Dragglethorp Miss Fanny Wiseman brought out the comic element of the play to its utmost, especially in her dialogues with Blinker. The other characters were all well cast. The piece is to be repeated to-morrow night and until further notice. T...
HOPES FOR HOLYROOD. RECEIVES THE KING'S ATTENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
HOPES FOR HOLYROOD. RECEIVES THE KING'S ATTENTION. &nbsp; THERE are again rumors that the King intends to give Holyrood Palace a good share of his time and attention. The historic old house has, &nbsp; &nbsp; at any rate, been very much refur- nished and refitted. The last Royal resident at Holyrood was Prince &nbsp; Charles Edward, the "Young Pre- tender," who held Court there for a &nbsp; &nbsp; short time in his invasion of Scotland &nbsp; in 1845. Queen Victoria and the &nbsp; &nbsp; Georges III. and IV. made short visits to the old palace, too, and the glories &nbsp; of the levee held by the latter Sove- reign are remembered throughout Scot- land to this day. It was attended by &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; over 2,000 Scotch men and women of high degree, who were delighted to find the King wearing Highland cos- &nbsp; tume. Some of the burly Scots, it is true, were inclined to...
THE DOWAGER QUEEN OF ITALY. FROM PALACE TO CLOISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
THE DOWAGER QUEEN OF ITALY. FROM PALACE TO CLOISTER. There is a rumor that Queen &nbsp; &nbsp; Margherita of Italy is about to become &nbsp; &nbsp; a nun. Her Majesty, who is 51 years &nbsp; of age, has always been noted for her piety and religious leanings ; but, as such rumors have been current ever since the assassination of King Hum= &nbsp; bert, it still remains to be seen whether they will be borne out by fact. At the present time, Queen Margherita is &nbsp; a constant visitor to the King and Queen of Italy during the convalescence &nbsp; consequent on his Majesty's recent fall &nbsp; when out shooting. The Duchess of Genoa and the tiny Princess Yolande, &nbsp; joining the party, unite the four generations, and, had it not been for King Victor's indisposition, a photo- graph depicting the four generations, similar to our own royal group, would assuredly have been taken. Princess Yolande is a very m...
STEEL RAILWAY TRUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
STEEL RAILWAY TRUCKS. In order to prevent the complete wrecking of goods trucks which takes place when an accident derails the old wooden tracks American engineers have devised pressed steel truck which is being introduced on nearly every &nbsp; American line. How marvellously they stand an accident can be seen in the accompanying picture, which was taken after a recent accident near Rock Creek, Ohio. It will be seen that the trucks have stood the shock wonderfully. So far as can be gathered, these trucks cost little more than the wooden ones, and have a far longer life. Might not West Australian railways adopt them with advantage?
THE SILENT LANGUAGE OF CRIME. SOME SECRETS DIVULGED BY A REFORMED BURGLAR TO W. J. WINTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
THE SILENT LANGUAGE OF CRIME. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SOME SECRETS DIVULGED BY A REFORMED BURGLAR. TO W.J. WINTLE. &nbsp; &nbsp; IF any one occupation more than another calls for secrecy it is that of the professional thief. The pre- cautions take to ensure the privacy of a meeting of the Cabinet are less elaborate than those that accompany a conclave ot the light-fingered gentry. It was only after much cautious in- vestigation that we ran to earth the &nbsp; TWIRLING THE MOUSTACHE MEANS, "I WANT TO SPEAK TO YOU PRI- &nbsp; VATELY." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; professional gentleman who furnished us with the facts contained in this &nbsp; article. It was in a house in a retired square, not a hundred miles from Fen- tonville, that the interview took place and those who brought about the &nbsp; &nbsp; meeting were careful not to mention the burglar's name. We soon found out, ho...
BLUECOAT BOYS' FAREWELL THE LAST OF A 350-YEAR-OLD CUSTOM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
BLUECOAT BOYS' FAREWELL &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE LAST OF A 350-YEAR-OLD CUSTOM. The Bluecoat Boys went to the &nbsp; Mansion House, London, for their buns and money for the last time on a Wed- nesday recently, and the historic oc- casion was more than a trifle sad. As the Lord Mayor said in his &nbsp; little speech to the boys, it is 350 &nbsp; years since King Edward VI. found- ed Christ's Hospital, and the same &nbsp; &nbsp; East ceremony has been performed &nbsp; practically without intermission since then. "But in a few weeks from now the school is to be removed to Horsham, &nbsp; in Sussex, and so Wednesday's cere- mony was the last Easter visit to the &nbsp; Lord Mayor. Had it not been, the latter would hardly have broken the tradition of 350 years by speech-mak- ing. &nbsp; The boys, to the number of nearly 600, began their march through the streets to the Mansion Ho...
POLICEMAN AND PRESIDENT A STORY OF GENERAL GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
POUCEMAN AND PRESIDENT A STORY OF GENERAL GRANT One evening during General Grant's occupation of the Presidential chair &nbsp; he was returning late from a drive. An engagement pressing, he was send- &nbsp; ing his horses along at a speed in excess of the legal limit. At the corner of a certain street a new police- man was on duty, and this was the result:— &nbsp; As the carriage came tearing down the avenue the constable peremptorily &nbsp; ordered its driver to stop. This the Presidential whip meekly did. "What's the trouble?" said he. "Trouble?" repeated the officer. &nbsp; &nbsp; "Don't you know you're driving about nine times as fast as the law allows ?" "Yes," quietly responded Grant, "I guess I was, now that you speak of it." "Well, then, you can consider your- self under arrest and go with me to the station-house." There were some remarks from the &nbsp; other occupants of the coach, among whom were a diplomat, two sena...
Our Sunday Serial THE MALLISON MYSTERY. BOOK THE FIRST. AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY. [COPYRIGHT.] CHAPTER VII. "THOU, TOO, POOR BANKRUPT HEART." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
THE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MALLISON MYSTERY. BY T.W. HANSHEW &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; BOOK THE FIRST. AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; CHAPTER VII. "THOU, TOO, POOR BANKRUPT HEART." "Well, it's my private opinion &nbsp; &nbsp; that the people in this house have all gone crazy, and lost what few wits they ever had!" announced Joyce Durl, returning from her fifth visit of inspection to the clock in the servants' sitting room, and hurling his "private opinion" at the heads of the half-dozen &nbsp; &nbsp; colleagues as they discussed their breakfast—and the all-absorbing topic of the murder—in the sanctity of the domestic offices of Woodlea Park. &nbsp; &nbsp; "First of all, there's Johnston, who says that he DIDN'T leave the window of the blue room open last nig...
CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
CHAPTER VIII. THE FIRST ENDING OF THE TRAGEDY. Chief Creel emitted a groan of des- pair. "Drowned !" he repeated, "Margot Bawtry drowned! Good Heavens! is it possible that Fate can be so cruel?' "Cruel ?" repeated the doctor, coming forward and rejoining him. " Say &nbsp; rather that Fate has been most just, Mr. Creel, and that if Margot Bawtry is, as you seem to have good reason to suspect, the person who caused the death of those two harmless women and abducted the missing child, a finer in- stance of Heaven sent retribution &nbsp; &nbsp; never yet existed." "Do you think I am regretting Margot Bawtry's death?" returned &nbsp; Chief Creel. "Do you think I am wasting any sorrow over the fact that the State has been spared the expense of her trial, and the gallows cheated of its just due ? It is not for the guilty I am sorry, doctor ; it is the innocent. With that woman's death the Mallison case closes, so far as the law is con- cerned, sir, and there...
THE CONVICT TAINT. W.A. IN THE SIXTIES. BERESFORD AND REDPATH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 29 June 1902
THE CONVICT TAINT. W.A. IN THE SIXTIES. BERESFORD AND REDPATH. The total number of convicts landed in Western Australia between 1851 and 1868 (when transportation ceased) was 9721. Writing of the latter por- tion of this period, W. B. Kimberley, in his history of West Australia says:— "It would seem improbable that an army of over 9000 criminals conld he quartered for years in a com- munity of lesser numbers in adults without becoming the dominating power, and leaving the indelible &nbsp; memorial of its presence on the char- ter and physique of succeeding genera- tions." To a slight extent—perhaps not more than the usual proportion in a country—signs of criminality are to be seen in the faces of the isolated com- munities; also, even to this day, the indigence and hopeless inebriety of the class are found in one or two rural districts. And yet, by instituting comparisons between West Australian communities and others in Australia where convicts were never introduced t...
