Fables Up-to-Date. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

Fables Up«to-Date. ' Where are you going '? asked an Eastern pilgrim on meeting the Plague one day. 'I am going to S3 dney to kill five thousand people', was the reply. A few days later the same pilgrim met the Plague returning. ' You told me you were going to Sydney to kill five thou sand people', said he, 'but instead you killed fifty thousand'. 'No', said the Plague, 'I killed only five thou sand, as I told you I would ; the others were scared to death by the rascally JDaily Newspapers '!

Political Patter. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

Political Patter. Parliament entertains Oopeland on Monday night. Our Parliament meets on April 24th after a very fair smoke-ho. Sir Edward Braddon only beat Dr. McOall by 14 votes for West Devon. The Broken H ill Labor Party hold eight seats out of twelve in the municipal council. George Brookman has now dona ted £15,000 to the Adelaide School of Mines. Gladstone is said to have thought Dr. Martineau the greatest of living thinkers. ' Take away the sword ; States can be saved without it.' 1 — Lytton. ' The Standard , Mount Lyell, Tas mania, likened King O'Malley to an obscene blowfly. The Daily Mail is a mendacious, shallow and ignorant print ; some London newspapers are published by blackguards and edited by ruffians. — John Burns, M.P. The liquor traffic supplies one third of the revenue and two-thirds of the House of Commons. — Sir Wilfred Lawson. Great is the power of Bung. Nurse O'Callaghan is of opinion tnat a vast number of Sydney rookeries should be burnt to the ground. Bre...

Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

Things isa General. It is impossible that the bulk of our aldermen can give any time to their duties. Most of them have always too many irons in the fire. Look at John Norton, for instance; years ago ho used to rage furiously against the Labor Party, and would do now if it suited him, on the One Man One Billet score. Now he is edit,r and proprietor of Tru/h, alderman of the City Coun cil, Member for Northumberland, and also a member of the Transit Commission with designs on the Water and Sewerage Board. In addition to these troubles he has always a law suit or two on hani. What chance, therefore, has he to perform his aldermanic duties ? * K- In War Notes, tha i). J'. idiotically says : — ' Your rebel all the world over, and ever since tho. world be gan, has been a coward and a cur at the best.' So ? — Were those who rebelled against tho authority of Charles I. in England, cowards and curs? Were the American revolu tionaries against George IIT. cowards and curs ? Were the Swiss rebe...

Plaguey Pars. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

Plaguey Pars. The cronkest of cronk tips — the Moore Park. The war was a plague but the plague is waur. Oxygen — plenty of light and air —is the best plague preventive. The plague and not the war, is now the great topic of Sydney con versation. The force of our contention re See's premises is shown by the quarantining of the Sussex-street area. Our supply of serum is rapidly giving out. Ab'-ut 1400 persons were innoculated l*st Saturday. After all the newspaper fusB about the plague, typhoid has killed many more victims during the last two months. A man, pushed through a window at the Health Department, was only liberated when his boss paid the damage for him. A dead-bird for the Plague Stakes — in fact the only thing worth backing according the fancy — the Moore Park tip ! The attack of the Bo Br and the Legion Teutonic, Afar on the veldt and the vlei, Is nought^ to the charge of the Legion Bubonic — The rat, and the bug, and the flea. Norton has so discredited him self by his cont...

The Plague Outbreak. THE RIGHT WAY TO FIGHT THE DISEASE. The outbreak of plague in and about Sydney, and its appearance in the other colonies, rouses the attoution of all Aus tralia to a threatening danger, the most terrible that has ever faced this country. And it has become a life-and-death duty for the people to give it battle in every quarter. So far we have proof that the outbreak is associated with dirt, for some of the Sydney cases have occurred on premises from which several cart loads of dirt have since been removed. One family, already decimated by the disease, lived bj' raking for rags on a city dirt tip, and these rags they took home with them. Further, an inspection of Sussex street, the locality of the outbreak, shows an outrageous condition of dirt in that quarter. Under tho circumstances, it is clear the fell monster — the plague — has to be fought with the broom and the disinfectant. In truth, Bubon disap pears ouly before a good aud constant use of efficacious disi...

In Front and Behind. THE WEEK'S PROGRAMME. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

In Front and Behind. [By Valentine Day.] THE WEEK'S PROGRAMME. The Lyceum — Defender of the Faith. The Royal — The Happy Life. Her Majesty's — Youth. Palace. — Lady Dolly. The Criterion— Tivoli Company. Town Hall — Civic Concerts. j Cyolorama — Jerusalem & Illusions. Bondi & Coogee Aquaria — Concerts ' Last week, I blundered in say ing that Masks and Faces was last played here by the Charringtons in '91, for it was produced, the Herald reminds me, by Mrs. Bernard Beere at the Royal in June, '92, just three days before the partial destruction of that play house by fire. And there is little doubt that it was about the best thing that elegant if somewhat blaso actress did here. Masks and Faces was first played in Sydney in 1856 by Marie Duret, the American actress who afterwards committed suicide at Melbourne. The Sydney critics are divided as to the value of Nance O'Neil's Peg Woffiugton. The Sunday Times asserts that it is the best thing she haB done here, which, as i...

When The Empire Calls. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

When The Empire Calls^ Not ours to throw the gauntlet down, nor hot defiance hurl, Not ours to give the challenge, nor battle flag unfurl. We banded for defence alone, to guard our native land, Nor thought of foreign conquest upon a distant strand ; But we're sons of British sires — and whatsoe'er befalls, It is ours to answer — when the Empire calls. Chorus. Then strike, boys, strike, with a strong right arm, The crimson tide of kinship in our v- ins runs warm. Not all the foeman's menace our beating heart appal , We're really to go forward — when the Empire calls. Not ours to make a braggart boast to nations 'cross the sea, Nor seek the gage of battle, if they will leave us free. In peace and honour we would live, from wanton strife apart. But a call 4 to arms ' will echo in each colonial heart. And if Britain stands in need— or war cloud o'er liar falls, We will give the answer — when the Empire calls ? — Hugh Maodonalp.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

Concerning great wealth, Russell Sage writes to the Examiner, 'Frisco, that it has not yet reached the danger-point. He then pro ceeds to excuse it in the following i terms : — The concentration of I wealth in a few hands is natural, beoauae the experience of the past shows that there are only a few j®];',;,.' men who possess the necessary tact and ability to secure large ;' ||/ wealth, and they are aided by cir 'm;. cumstance8. So long as one man is more intelligent than another, ||; or so long as a syndicate of men 'pi; possesses more brains than the i |/ / , community at large, the concentra I !/. tion of wealth will continue. It has not yet, however, reached a i dangerous point. The men who :t&: are in control of vast wealth are |'j -. fully aware that it must be used k' . for the benefit rather than for the - oppression of the masses. So far jly1 these men have not lost their heads, |V; and there is very little indication ;; of their doing so for some time to come. The ...

Corn Cobs. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

Corn Cobs. The Bulletin '« ' book ' page is red with blushes because of tho weekly thefts practised therein. Epitaph from a Tyrolean grave yard : — 'In Christian memory of ? ? ? , who departed this life without human assistance.' Another: — 'Here rests in God, ? . He lived 26 years a man and 37 years a husband.' Evidently the missus wore the pants. I Epitah on the tomb of a man who was killed by an unlucky fall : 1 — ' Here fell Jacob HoseDknop from the roof into eternity.' The candour of the following epitah to a husband will awaken a responsive echo : — ' Tears cannot bring thee back to life, therefore I weep.' The Daily Telegraph naively admits that the polioy of news papers may be dictated with sovereigns , meaning thereby 'quids.' The quid pro quo ! Blackmore's preliminary names were Richard Doddridge. On the mother's side, he was descended from Philip Doddridge, the hymn writing divine. At C. G. Hatte's picnic he stated that the Early Closing Act had increased his takings by 1...

The Balmain Colliery Murder. THRIFT v. HUMAN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

The Balmain Colliery Murder. THRIFT v. HUMAN LIFE. In the opinion of The Eleoto r ; the verdict of^the coroner's jury who sat on the bodies of the victims^ of the Balmain Colliery disaster strikes another deadly blow at the jury system. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death and added as a rider a colorless recom- j mendation that the descending col liers should be medically examined once in every six months, and actually went on to praise the manager for his care when it was made obvious by the evidence that the precautions taken against acci dent were of the most primitive character. We have no hesitation in saying that to lower men about 2000 feet in an open bucket, unac companied by a light, is a penny saving, life-losing arrangement which may seem highly satisfactory to a soulless and bowelless syndicate 6'r on idiotic jury but which, -public opinion ought moot vigorously to protest against. For, as half an inch of oscillation 10ft. from the top means over asix-feet sw...

The Plague and Progression. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 31 March 1900

The Plague and Pro gression. Premier Lyne has somewhat tardily moved in the right direction by directing that temporary quar ters shall be found at Pyrmont and v Darling Island for the vessels of Huddart, Parker, and Co., Union 8.S. Company, the Adelaide S.8. Company, North Coast S.N. Com pany, ana tne inawarra -Jompany, while berths at Circular Quay will be arranged for the Drurn ncoyne, Annandale, Lane Cove, Balmain, and perhaps Parramatta ferry steamers. This important step, however, should be but the prelude to one of much greater magnitude — the immediate re sumption of every wharf and every inch of water f ronta ge lying between Miller's Point and the head of navigation. No lesser step will satisfy the public, no other course .{.can ensure the removal of those '??^lyaeed plots of infection which so 'eagerly received the plague and are ?now eo steadily disseminating it.

Braver those who slumber here Theirs nor friend nor fame to cheer ; | Theirs amid life's growing shade, No song but what their own hearts 1 ? 1 _ IJlUUtf Theirs no tribute o'er the grave ; Still they fought! — Here lie the brave.'

ONWARD. CHRISTIAN SOLDIER ! Tho Anglo-Saxon Christians, with Q-zitling gun and sword, In serried ranks are pushing on the J Gospel of the Lord. - On Afric's soil they press the foe in war's terrifjto scenes And merrily the hunt goes on throughout the Philippines. What though the Boers are Christ ians, the Filippinos too ! It is a Christian act to shoot a fellow creature through. The bombs with dynamite sur charged, their deadly missiles Air,™ And gaily on their fatal work tho dumb-dumb bullets sing. I The dead and mangled bodies, the wounded and the sick, Are multiplied on every hand, on every field, and thick. ' 0 gracious Lord,' the prayer goes up, ' to us give victory swift I' The chaplains on opposing sides the same petitions lift. The Mahdis and the Sirdns along the great Soudan Are lea-ning at the cannon's mou li the biotherhood of man. The holy spirit guides aloft the shrieking shot and shell, And Christian people shout wi:h joy at thousands b.'own to Hell. r The pulpits bles...
