GOLDFIELDS RACING COOLGARDIE MEETING. COOLGARDIE, SATURDAY. The Coolgardie picnic race meeting was held to-day. There was a small attendance, &nbsp; the fields were small, and the racing poor.

BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
BOXING. Joe Hendrick "The Coon," who recently defeated Swansey Thom in three rounds, is announced for a match against Fred. James, "The Ballarat Boy." The contest will be one of 20 rounds, for a £10 side wager and 75 per cent. of the gate. The "mill" is listed for Monday, July 28, at Masons Hall, North Fremantle, and as it is under the managerial control of Tom Glanville a straight go may confidently be looked for- ward to. The weights of the contestants are announced as being—Hendricks, 11st. 8lb.; James, 11st 3lb. Both men are re- ported in the best of nick. A 10-round boxing contest will take place &nbsp; to-morrow night at the Perth Amateur Athletic Club between Heaney and Don- nelly for a purse given by the committee of the club. Also the first round of the amateur light-weight tournament for trophies presented by Messrs. M'Cormack and Ferd will be fought.

LATE SPORTING. LOCAL RACING. CANNING PARK MEETING. CEEMATION OF CROOK CROCKS. Judgment on Juggling Jockeys. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
LATE SPORTING. LOCAL RACING, CANNING PARK MEETING.. CREMATION OF CROOK CROCKS. JUDGMENT ON JUGGLING JOCKEYS. The Canning Park July Meeting took place yesterday, and being favored by fine weather it was fairly attended. Jockey Jeffries threw a couple of races away, and it is about time the W.A.T.C. ordered him &nbsp; to stand down for incompetency, if for nothing else. Myallie got badly left on two occasions, and on the first Madden was called upon by the stewards to explain the why and wherefore. However, his explanation was considered satisfactory. During the day a pleasant little ceremony took place, when the stewards of the club presented W. McNamara with a gold medal, suitably in- scribed, as a memento of his winning the first Grand National Steeplechase with Plain &nbsp; Bill some weeks ago. The racing was in- teresting, but the vet. could with advantage have examined Sunlight's teeth and gums after the last race. Details:— &nbsp; JULY HANDICAP. Of 25 so...
PELLEW'S GREAT SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
PELLEW'S GREAT SALE. Messrs. H. J. Pellew and Co, the drapers and general outfitting providers, whose marts in the Eastern States, on the Westra- lian Goldfields, and at Fremantle are so well and favorably known, have inaugurated a sale on gigantic and most sweeping lines &nbsp; at the Fremantle depot. An immense stock &nbsp; is carried at the Fremantle house, and this, it is announced in another column, will be quitted at prices never absolutely before &nbsp; within the reach of the general public. The sale commenced yesterday, and the crash in all departments of the many desirous of par- ticipating in the bargains was a sight to be remembered. Men, women, and children hustled and pushed forward with an eager- ness that caused even the hard-worked counter hands to smile. As, however, the throwing out of bargains will continue for another four weeks ample opportunity will be vouchsafed Fremantleites of securing an &nbsp; assortment of the remarkably l...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
TURF TATTLE. &nbsp; As was only natural, our criticism last week of a recent decision given by Tatter- &nbsp; sall's Club in reference to the "all in" busi- ness caused discussion in sporting circles, and though there may have been a few parties interested in the business who did not like it, the great bulk of the sporting community applauded us for our outspoken- ness in dealing with a matter on which other papers for years past have been afraid to throw their searchlight. As a result of what we have written, many who were before ignorant now know that there is no such thing as "all in" re- &nbsp; &nbsp; cognised in betting, and the anger and chagrin of those who have for years past been duped in this way by men who have fattened and grown rich on possibly the &nbsp; hard-earned wages of working men who like to have a bet knows no bounds. &nbsp; Our office has been besieged during the &nbsp; week by men who, having the scales ...
FOOTBALL. SENIOR FIXTURES. SECOND ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
SENIOR FIXTURES. &nbsp; SECOND ROUND. &nbsp; July 12.—Perth v. East Fremantle (P.) West Perth v. Subiaco (F.), South Fre- mantle v. North Fremantle (N.F.). Recently in one particular quarter we have heard a lot of what should be done to purify the game. If one can be permitted &nbsp; to read between the lines we must dispense with the W.A. Football Association, or if not that, give the power of Government to outsiders. &nbsp; No doubt "Half-Back" has his notions, and he might be on the right track, but it would be far more honorable and far more &nbsp; &nbsp; likely to bear fruit if he would state what he really means when be attacks the asso- ciation. &nbsp; As far as the SUNDAY TIMES is concerned, the association is doing its best to uphold and maintain its attractiveness and purity. There have been secessions from the other associations over disputes with referees and unfair decisions, but this sort of thing has &nbs...

PUGILISM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
PUGILISM. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We thought pugilistic encounters had been relegated to the realms of the past in this highly moral State, but evidently we have been misinformed. Some time ago in our Turf columns we referred to some of the pestiferous insects who defile our racecourses as tripological tipsters and tale-tellers of the turf. We did not wish to hurt anyone's feelings, and therefore no names were men- &nbsp; tioned. Two men, however, took the little paragraph to refer to themselves, though why they should have considered themselves "topological tipsters" unless they were such surpasseth the ordinary understanding. Per- haps the word "tripological" brought back tender' memories to one of them, as he thought of the time he was handing round stewed tripe and onions in a sixpenny hash house while he was trying to resusci- tate his fallen fortunes to contin...

MEXICAN MORGANS. EXPLORING GREENBUSHES. JUMPING ON THE JUMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
MEXICAN MORGANS. EXPLORING GREENBUSES. JUMPING ON THE JUMPER. "X-Ray" writes:—Greenbushes, &nbsp; &nbsp; says a correspondent, with its crisp and bracing atmosphere, is just the place to study a volume such as "Plu tarch's Lives." Seated on a fallen &nbsp; jarrah tree empurpled with creepers to the accompaniment of a gentle wind &nbsp; susurous amongst the Banksia foliage, and watching the wild bees flower cradled, and the flights of the robin flashing brilliantly red and black twixt shadow and shine, one may slip into &nbsp; the past and realise the patriotism of &nbsp; Quntus Curtius, the fortitude of Macino Scaevola, and the rest of it. And the spirit of the scene will pro- &nbsp; voke comparions between the present &nbsp; &nbsp; and the past—the men of yesterday &nbsp; and those of to-day. Q Curtius and A.E. Morgans, M. Scaevola and H. &nbsp; &nbsp; Nanson; Curtius jumping into a &...
RAILWAY MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
RAILWAY MANAGEMENT. &nbsp; "Cue'' writes:—"Last year Mr. &nbsp; Yelverton asked the following ques- tion re railway inspections:—Mr. Yel- &nbsp; &nbsp; verton moved—'That a return be laid upon the table showing— (1) the num- ber of official inspections made upon each of our railways during last year : (2) the names of the officers engaged upon such inspections; (3) the class of car used ; (4) the cost in each case to the State.' He took exception to special carriages being set apart for &nbsp; officials while on visits of inspection, and pointed out that the hauling cost the State just as much as the drawing of and ordinary, or even a goods, car. &nbsp; The Commissioner of Railways offered no objection to the motion, but pointed out that 'the cost in each case to the State' would be somewhat difficult to get at. The motion was agreed to. I never saw the reply published. However; the question did not go far enough. A fifth question migh...
The Sunday Times SUNDAY, JULY 13, 1902. WEST PERTH AND MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY,JULY 13, 1902. &nbsp; WEST PERTH AND MURRAY. &nbsp; THE two Parliamentary seats rendered &nbsp; vacant by the death of the late Mr. Leake (West Perth) and the appoint- &nbsp; &nbsp; ment of Mr. George to the Commis- &nbsp; sionership of Railways (Murray) are being energetically contested, and it would require a prophet to predict who among the many rivals will be the &nbsp; successful candidates. In West Perth there are no less than six aspirants, and all with the exception of Mr. Moran are an exceedingly indifferent crowd, at least intellectually. As heaven- &nbsp; born saviours of their country they are failures from the start. Mr. Moran, in point of ability, stands like Saul &nbsp; among them—head and shoulders above his nearest rival. He is keen &nbsp; in talent, able in debate, versed in &nbsp; political knowledge, full of life and energy, a formidable fighter, an out...
THE PREMIER'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
THE PREMIER'S SPEECH THE policy speech of Mr. James was a dis- appointment to his best friends, and to the bulk of the citizens it must have been a cer- &nbsp; tificate of his incompetency for the Premier- &nbsp; ship. There was much of the young lawyer &nbsp; with a special-pleading brief, but nothing of &nbsp; the matured political leader in it. His &nbsp; &nbsp; defence of Kingsmill now tars him with the &nbsp; same brush, and he can never hence pretend &nbsp; to be a champion of parliamentary &nbsp; government or constitutional honor. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; His weakness in adopting the parrot cry to &nbsp; lessen the number of parliamentary repre- sentatives shows that he is more a hunter after popularity than an original thinker or &nbsp; courageous politican. Had he reflected a &nbsp; moment he would have hesitated to shear &nbsp; the local Parliament o...
NUISANCE MOLLOY. A MEAN MANIKIN. HIS ASSAULT ON WEST PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
NUISANCE MOLLOY. A MEAN MANIKIN. HIS ASSAULT ON WEST PERTH. Tom Molloy, the justice of the peace who nearly knocked an old man to pieces for asking for his dues; Tom Molloy, who was fined in the police court where he sometimes presides, for as- sault; Tom Molloy, the Shylock of the West, who hires men to tout for him at election times and refuses to anti up for their services. The man who runs a theatre by running all who hire it to despair, if not to ruin ; the man who opposes a new theatre being built and then applies for leave to build one not twenty yards away ; the man who put a hireling ne'er-do-well to the job of drawing plans which were rejected by the Licensing Court; the man who then parted with a few shillings to a professional archi- tect to put these plans in order, and had them again rejected as a blunder ; the man who is a public nuisance at every election time—is standing for West Perth to air his diseased vanity and ruin the chances of some other man far and away be...
CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. "All the venal crowd." &nbsp; Rason and George make pretty twins. Will Nanson have the courage to challenge James as soon as the House meets ? One has to look below the surface to follow Morgans in his political moves. Wife beating is getting as common in Perth as in Whitechapel. &nbsp; Walter gave a nice specimen of weltering on Monday night. R. S. Haynes championing Molloy is rather rough on Haynes. When is George going to put up the Black &nbsp; Goose Foundry to auction? &nbsp; The only good part of the Premier's speech &nbsp; was the practical promise of an early dis- solution. The earlier the better. &nbsp; The war against trusts has commenced in earnest in America. When will it reach our own Morgans ? Sir Edmund Barton is making the cash fly in London. His appetite, too, seems more voracious than ever. &nbsp; The plague will stop in Fremantle so long as Leake-street and several other places thereabouts h...
VERSE—AND WORSE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
VERSE—AND WORSE "To cheat thee of a sigh, Or charm thee to a tear." —MOORE. &nbsp; "Gladstone," Says Geil in a recent sermon, "thought Christ was the greatest character in history." Gladstone probably never heard of Geil. They were looking over with loyal interest the Coronation number of a well-known Eng- lish illustrated weekly, one ol the features of which was a full page depicting the Kings and Queens of England from William I. to his Imperial Paunchiness Edward VII. One of the group pointed to the picture of Henry V. "Rot !" he snorted. "It aint a bit like him." "Like who?" demanded the others. "George Rignold," answered the sceptic. "I seen him playing the part" ! ! &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "He (Mr. George) felt there would he a blank in his life when he left his foundry to take charge of the railways." (Enthusiastic silence.) Commissioner George Since leaving his forge Feels a blank in his daily existence, And no more in the House On his foeman bel...
WHEN CONFESSION CARDS ARE READ. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 July 1902
.... &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; WHEN CONFESSION CARDS ARE READ. &nbsp; BY DRYBLOWER. [Evangelist Geil asserts that he has had more confession cards filled in W. A. than in any other part of Australia. He urges &nbsp; on the repentant sinner to allow the cards to be read out publicly.] Sing a hurricane of praise For the saint unorthodox, Who will save the souls—and "trays" Of prodigious brainless flocks. &nbsp; Howl a healthy hip-'ooray &nbsp; For this sanctimonious sharp Who for cash will point the way To a halo and a harp. Man's a chuckleheaded chump And from Geil no blessing wins If he waits till Gabriel's trump &nbsp; To confess his scarlet sins. Now's the time your heart to clear, Don't delay it till you're dead ; Let us all be there to hear When Confession Cards Are Read. Once upon a long-gone time Preachers struck a solemn note ; Now we bear the Word sublime With the antics of a goat. We now gaze upon the phiz Of a pulp...
