TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
TURF TATTLE. There was not much in yesterday week's racing that calls for comment, and attention might almost at once be turned to future events, as there is plenty of food for future reflection furnished us during the past week by the issue of the weights for the great spring handicaps. Punters in Melbourne seem to be having a very rough time lately, and it would be interesting to stand on the Brighton road on a Sunday afternoon and watch the procession of the bejewelled knights of the bag and pencil in all varieties of the gayest equipages to the Retreat, the Duke of Edinburgh, or the Red Bluff Hotel at Sandringham, there to play up some of their winnings on the best of Moet or sparkling Moselle. At Williamstown only one favorite won, and of the other four races one winner was at 15 to 1 and another 12 to 1. Harmonist, who is coming to the front as a stallion, sired a couple winners in Pathos and Rhapsody, who was the one favorite to get home. &nbsp; &nbsp; &am...

FOOTBALL. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SENIOR FIXTURES. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SECOND ROUND. &nbsp; &nbsp; July 12.—Perth v. East Fremantle (F.) &nbsp; West Perth v. Subiaco (F.) South Fre- mantle v. North Fremantle (N.F.). FLOTSAM. &nbsp; &nbsp; "No game was ever yet worth a rap &nbsp; &nbsp; For a rational man to play, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Into which no accident or mishap Could possibly find its way." —ADAM LINDSAY GORDON. &nbsp; Perth played a beautiful game against South Fremantle yesterday week. &nbsp; &nbsp; Their exhibition of the game was one of the prettiest we have seen for some time. &nbsp; South Fremantle did not have a look in at &nbsp; any stage of the game. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Two of their players, Gibson and Shaw,...
WRESTLING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
WRESTLING. Jack Perryman, champion of Victoria, was not long in this State before he found a match, and a contest has been arranged be- tween him and Jack Pearn, who wrestled Harry Pearce, to take place in the Perth Town Hall on Saturday, July 19. The match will be in the Graeco-Roman style, the best three out of five falls for 75 and £5 per cent, of the gate.
BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
The match arranged for to-morrow (Mon- day) evening at Mason's Hall, North Fre- mantle, between Swansey Tom and Joe &nbsp; Hendricks, is exciting some speculation in sporting circles. Both men are keen for a &nbsp; win, and being in the very best nick a will- ing go can confidently be looked forward to. The winner will net 75 per cent. of the gate proceeds and a £10 side-wager. Manager Tom Glanville has made arrangements for a varied programme apart from the maini event, and a pleasant evening should even- tuate. Several short bouts by well-known votaries of the noble art are announced, and &nbsp; in addition several coon songs will, it is stated, be contributed by prominent vocal &nbsp; comedians. The admission charges and &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; other details are advertised in to-day's issue.
GERALDTON ABUSES. PRISONERS AS DOMESTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
GERALDTON ABUSES. PRISONERS AS DOMESTICS. "One Who Knows," writes:—"See- ing that you are a staunch advocated of British justice and fair play, and that you expose all abuses of so-called "administration," I feel it my duty to place before you one or two samples of bare-faced maladministration. Amongst other necessary evils we have an apology for a Government medical officer, whose abuses of his position is so glaring, and coming under the personal observation of the writer so frequently, he is compelled to take this, a step he would under ordinary cir- cumstances avoid. The hospital, the police-station, and the Government medical officer (Dr. Elliot) are each allowed a prisoner. The former as an assistant orderly, and the two latter &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ostensibly as grooms; I have nothing to say as to the prisoner in attendance at the hospital and police barracks, but what I (and I am sure others) &nbsp; deem a flagrant perversion of the true intent...
MANDURAH MATTERS. THE ROYAL MAILMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
MANDURAH MATTERS. THE ROYAL MAILMAN. &nbsp; &nbsp; Observer writers:—"Our royal mail- &nbsp; &nbsp; man, who runs a rattle-trap between Pinjarrah and Mandurah, while doing a trip very recently was found carry- ing the mail into Pinjarrah per boot. After a little investigation it was found that he had been flogging his poor little pony animals till they could not move. Finally he had to appear at the local court at Pinjarrah on a charge of cruelty to animals, and was fined 20s., and costs. I have often wondered at him not being reported before, as I have heard several visitors declare they would sooner walk than ride with a man who was continually flogging his horses; and I am sure if he is allowed to run them much longer in the poor state they are in they will not be fit for the Zoo. This is not the only fault to be found with the name Mr. Hiram Eacott, commonly known as the solicitor, legal advisor, etc. &nbsp; Some time ago he made it his bu...
SWEATING ON SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
H. Morrison writes:—Knowing that your paper is always down on firms working on Sunday, which should be the day of rest, it is just as well to let the police know that there is a clothing factory, close to Queen-street, in Murray-street, where you will see men working just as they do on ordinary days. The police cannot fail to hear the rattle of the machines as they pass. This thing has been going on for the last six weeks, and I think it is time it was stopped. There's enough sweating during the week without doing it on Sundays. No wonder there is cutting in the tailoring trade and young girls are compelled to work for low wages. Such a thing as this ought to be immediately stopped and the &nbsp; firm prosecuted as a warning to others. _M^^Wb^y^^elo^crt finest Whiskies thoroughly matured, ...:: ?

CHEATED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
CHEATED. &nbsp; The merchant who pays for advertising and doesn't get it, cries out that advertising doesn't pay. He is wrong. Advertising pays if you get it. If you pay for any com- modity that is never delivered, you lose money on it, just the same as you lose on advertising that you pay for but never get. When merchants learn to buy their adver- tising space in the newspapers as they buy &nbsp; their merchandise—by measure and weight &nbsp; —it will pay them. Pay for space accord- ing to circulation, and see that you get what yon pay for. Then you will not be cheated in advertising and it will pay yo. The SUNDAY TIMES will give you more adver- &nbsp; tising for your money than any other paper in W.A. &nbsp;
The Sunday Times SUNDAY, JULY 6, 1902. BAD BEGINS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY, JULY 6, 1902. BAD BEGINS. The nineteenth century has been called the age of progress and inven- tion. The twentieth century, so far as the British Empire (and our own &nbsp; little parcel of it in particular) is con- cerned, promises, up to present indic0 tions, to become the age of shams, quacks, and mediocrities. There has &nbsp; been a belief, openly expressed by great thinkers, that the hour produces the man. The present political situa- tion effectually disposes of that theory. The popular opinion that " there is as good fish in the sea as ever was &nbsp; caught " has proved a fallacy as applied to Parliament in Western Australia. The new Ministry is the strongest possible demonstration of our dearth of public men, and what is sad to con- template is that few if any better men can be found among the Opposition &nbsp; members than on the Government side of the House. None in the House, on &nbsp; any side, are capab...
SIMULTANEOUS MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
SIMULTANEOUS MISSION. A showing the effect of the mission of Mr. Geil. D.C. L , of Philadelphia, the following cutting from the Ballarat Courier of a recent issue may be of interest:—"A case of in- sanity, said to be attributable to the excite- ment engendered by the Simultaneous Mis- sion, came to light on Saturday, when a married woman was committed to the Ararat Asylum. She was a regular attend- &nbsp; ant at the mission services, and at the close began to show signs of mental aberration. &nbsp; This presently developed into violent re- ligious mania, and on Saturday, for the safety of herself and her family, it was found necessary to commit the unfortunate woman to an asylum." "The Alexandra" tea-rooms, Barrack- -Street, are open from 8 a.m. till 11.30 p.m.
GARROTTERS AT LARGE. CONSTABLE'S COWARDICE. RUFFIANS AND RED TAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
GARROTTERS AT LARGE. CONSTABLE'S COWARDICE. RUFFIANS AND RED TAPE. Sub-Inspector Sellinger will find it a diffi- cult task to bring the demoralised police &nbsp; force—demoralised by the influence of In- spector Drewery—up to the necessary stan- &nbsp; dard needful for the protection of the public. We question very much, too, if Kingsmill will be able to render him any assistance. Yet we believe Drewery's successor to be a good man for the place of supervision and one skilled in the enforcement of discipline and moral control, and therefore we have great hopes in him for the future. But to show what stringent rules will be necessary, and the great task he has in hand, we pur- pose to place the cowardice of at least one member of the police force bare before the public. Let us preface by saying if there be a crime short of murder itself—a crime &nbsp; &nbsp; which sometimes terminates in murder—of which the citizens have, rightly, a holy horror, it is ...
CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. "All the venal crowd." —BYRON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. "All the venal crowd.'' —BYRON. When will Saint George tackle the dragon ? &nbsp; Another shuffle of the political cards, and not all trumps. Geil is going. Some people think he is absolutely gone. Rason kept in the Ministry because they could not find a man to oust him. &nbsp; The Premier's first nick-name—Weltering Walter. The war clouds are gathering once more in the Far East. George has conquered the second-hand Cabinet. James will have to cultivate backbone for the Premiership. &nbsp; Geil lecturing on quack advertisements is like the devil expounding the virtues of sulphur. &nbsp; There is one more dogged attempt to keep recreant politicians out of the hands of their masters. Complaints are constantly reaching us of the way the animals at the Zoo are fed. The allegation is that they are half starved. In conseqence of King Edward's personal efforts to conclude the South African war the London Press predict that he will be known ...
TWO PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
TWO PICTURES. &nbsp; Two years agone a patriot prayed, His wan cheek washed in tears ; Prayed to his God while round him rose The taunts of proud triumphant foes, &nbsp; The mock advice and jeers. To-day those scoffcrs weep in woe, And on the same God call. Their King is sick, their hearts are sore, But then the man who prayed before Was only Uncle Paul. —DRYBLOWER.

PRAYER BY PROXY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
PRAYER BY PROXY. BY DRYBLOWER. ["It is estimated that throughout the King's dominions last Sunday, ten thousand clergymen and a hundred million worship- pers offered up prayer for the recovery of &nbsp; His Majesty."—[News note.] King Edward laughs at a healing wound In his fat Imperial paunch, Thanks to the royal sawbones' skill And a constitution staunch. In abbey and kirk, on land and sea, A hundred millions prayed ; And, seemingly, God has heard the plea Of the marrow-bone brigade. Their groans of grief the welkin rent, While their monarch to death lay nigh, And a hundred million knees were bent To the Ruler of Earth and Sky. From London to the Leeuwin bleak, From Timbuctoo to Tring, Ten thousand parsons preached and prayed &nbsp; &nbsp; What time a hundred million brayed &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To succour Britain's King. &nbsp; The nation's soul was steeped in woe, &nbsp; Its heart was cut to the quick; &nbsp;...
LIGHTNING CALCULATION CLERKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
LIGHTNING CALCULATION CLERKS. We wonder whether the ticket clerks at the Perth Railway Station, before they obtain their clerkship, have to show that they know even the most elementary rules of arithmetic, or are they such lightning cal- culators that they have an excellent chance &nbsp; of fleecing the public, and do not hesitate to take advantage of their opportunities. One or the other must be a fact, otherwise we should not so frequently be furnished with &nbsp; differences in their prices, one instance of &nbsp; which is as follows:—A resident of the Boulder, having a second-class ticket to Kal- goorlie, wished to exchange it for a first class one, and with that end in view he went to the ticket-window in Wellington- street on Thursday last, and inquired what he would have to pay for his Exchange of Tickets. He was informed 17s. 7d. He went away, but returned on the following day, when there was another clerk at the window, who refused to exchange his ti...

JUSTICE TO JANDAKOT. RIVAL RAILWAY ROUTES. SHARPERS, SYNDICATES, AND SETTLERS. DISTRICT DOOMED TO DEMONIAC DEVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
JUSTICE TO JANDAKOT SHARPERS, SYNDICATES, AND SETTLERS. DISTRICT DOOMED TO DEMONIC DEVICES. Whilst reading what we have to say on the Jandakot settlement, we respectfully request our readers to keep the map pub- lished in our supplement before them. The map will disclose a number of " proposed" Government railways. It is possible that none of these will ever be constructed, for in a country where public apathy almost universally obtains it is certain that great public necessities will be neglected. At &nbsp; best we can only hope that a line, and the line that will do the greatest good to the greatest number of people will be constructed. At a glance it will be obvious that all the lines suggested are not of equal value, that they &nbsp; will not all serve the same interests, except ing those of the land-grabbers, the capitalis- tic companies, and speculating sharks. Before we conclude we hope to make it clear to our readers the line or lines of this character....
