Our Young Men. [ALL young men are cordially invited to contribute items of interest to this column. Letters to be addressed to the Editor, WATCHMAN, 35 Queen Victoria Markets, York Street,] [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902

Our Young Men. By " Spartan." [All young men are cordially invited to con tribute items of interest to this column. Letters to be addressed to the Editor, "Watch man, 35 Queen Victoria Markets, York Street,] One of the speakers at a recent meeting of the A.P.DJL (central branch), referred to the growing desire for sport among young Austra lians, which was threatening to interfere with their ordinary business. He sai^ that there was a tendency among young Australians to regard cricket as the beginning and end of life. Anyone who has closely watched the world and its ways must admit that sport is beginning to assume an alarming importance in the minds of not only the young, but the older men of the Commonwealth. Only the other day a correspondent in the daily press complained that half the civil servants were out at Moore Park enjoying the cricket instead of attending to the wants of the public in their offices. I rejoice when young men give themselves to athletics. It is a thousand t...

Correspondence. "THE WATCHMAN " AND THE THEATRE. To the Editor of "The Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902

Correspondence. » THE WATCHMAN " AND THE ' " THEATRE, r To .tb© Editor of " The Watchman." Sin,—I have read with great pleasure the letter in your columns signed " Koorawatha," ' and T thoroughly ugree with every word of it It is a pity, however, that you do not quote his letter correctly, as the difference goes to strengthen your contention of dissent from his views. Your correspondent, however, by no means " belongs to the past/' nor does he seemingly " forget that the world is moving on, and that the standards of yesterday are not the infallible standards of to-day;" but he ev idently: does know that the Lord is coming and ;:;; is anxious to bear in mind the Holy Spirit's -command (2 Cor. v. 17), for there are no such , productions as "wholesome plays," for all are, more or less, villainously bad, at one point or another; and, moreover, are Satan's strongest weapons in 'his ceaseless warfare with the "separated" children of God, who, in their day and generation, are eudeavouring ...

Woman's Column. ["Poppy" will be glad to receive and answer any communications addressed to her, care of the Editor, 264 Pitt-street] [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902

Woman's Column. [" Poppy " will be glad to receive and answer any com - muni cations addressed to her, care of tha Editor, 264 Pitt-street] Deaji Moxa,— Now that the bubonic scourge is threatehing again, it is a fitting time to speak of needful precautions. We know that rats are the chief agents in spreading the fearsome thing, apd, as housewives, it is our duty to see that we keep our houses so that there is no encourage ment for them to visit us. The first thing that suggests itself is, not to leave food about uncovered. Apart from the danger of bnngiug to our premises the rats which are temporarily homeless, because of the crusade against them, it is an ugly habit to leave scraps of broken food about. If they are to be used again, keep them in some kind of decent receptacle, until wanted. If they are waste, it is only a matter of common cleanliness to get rid of them at once, either by the very best method of burning, or by popping them into the dust-bos, which should have a lid....

THE ACT OF EMANCIPATION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902

THE ACT OF EMANCIPATION. The magistrate's vievr is not without founda tion. Tho History of Ireland up to, and in clusive of, the above Act, written bra Romanist, McGee, concludes with this significant swagger —" When the Act of Emancipation was passed by the House of Commons, "Walker's sword fell down on the ramparts of Derry, dashed to a thousand pieces;" Nor is this- empty rhetoric. The Romanist owes supreme allegiance to priest and Pope, and these disallow tho civil and religious liberty so dear to British Pro testants, Romanists being the subjects, or rather the slaves of a foreign ruler, hostile to England, it was simply self-defence to withhold from Romanists such political powers as would enable them to crush British freedom at the command of the Pope. Russians, Turks, or Boers might ag well demand political privileges in this realm, for their oppression of English Protestants oould nut possibly be worse thau the oppression by Bloody Mary and James U. Tho Emancipation Act lef...

Correspondence. (We do not hold ourselve* retp ontible for the viewt of our corretpondenti.) "THE WATCHMAN" AND THE THEATRE. [To the Editor of the Watchman.") Sir,—In your issuo of the 15th inst I noticed a letter signed " Koorawatha," in wliicli the writer takes you to task for a reference to things theatrical in the admirably written and up-to-date columns of your lady contributor 14 Poppy." One would hardly take the trouble to reply to 11 Koorawatha's " epistle, for the reason that the views expressed therein are so narrow-minded, and bigoted, and out o touch with the intellectual and broad-minded spirit of the age, and, w,ere it not for your editorial notice inviting remarks on the subject, the epistle of " Koorawatha" could well be treated with the silent contempt it deserves. Everyone is entitled to his opinions, but there are some who possess so limited an idea on worldly matters, that to argue or correct them is simply waste of time. Their intellect is too narrow to grasp th...

IN ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902

IN ENGLAND Jesuitism was put under severe legal restraint as a deadly peril to the nation's hard won civil and religious liberty. These laws are unre pealed, but are ignored by the Jesuits, who defiantly swarm into England, and take advan tage of Protestant ignorance and soft-headed indulgence to set up schools and colleges in the Motherland, and here also, to repeat the trick played on the French nation. Military and political offices are being tilled with Jesuit pupils. Tliey are on nearly every newspaper staff of large importance and everywhere alert to serve their Church before all other interests. An attempt now being made in England to put the laws in force against this mo9t danger ous Popish Order was bafHed bv the magis trate refusing a summons, alleging that the Emancipation Act made anti-Jesuit laws obso lete but on appeal to' the liigher Court a u order was made to compel the magistrate to act.

Obiter Dicta. The "Australasian Independent" protests against the action of those who doscribo Dr. Clifford, of London, and Professor Rentoul, of Melbourne, as "pro-Boer," and states that these gentlemen themselves repudiate the title. The ."Australasian Independent," however, .does not suggest auother and more appropriate name; and while we. are as sorry as. our con temporary to see the ' " eminent Christian leaders" referred to in the company of Irish Fenians, foreign conspirators, and other haters of Eugland, we cannot forget that they walked with open eyes into their present position. These gentlemen have been connected with committees which have circulated the most abominable calumnies concerning the British Army and those responsible for the conduct of the war, and when the slanders have been dis proved they have not, as far as wo have seen, expressed a single regret, but liave turned aside to find fresh arguments with which to bolster up a doomed cause.
