Suburban Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 16 August 1902

Suburban Notes. [Bv Akiifieli).] Something must he done to revise and check Sydney municipal taxation. If the Aldermen fail to do it, then Parliament must step in, and better direct it. We hope to see a true balance sheet oi the plague taxation placed "before the ratepayers. There have been gi*os6 andini'auious cases of taxation re the plague rate, as also in the re-valuation of street properties by the City Council. The shooting of Constable Guilfoyle at Dar lington, together with the wounding of Con stable Maher, is both serious and lamentable. What with Hyde Park crimes and the murders of policemen, reform is wanted in tho police department. Australian crime and tramcar slaughter must he put down, and made less common. But the law does not allow the shooting of innocent subjects, even by police men. The whole business is a double tragedy The illuminations in Sydney were not veiy attractive.

The New Premier and His Views. BALFOUR AND HIS BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 16 August 1902

Tiie New Premier and His Views. BALFOUR AND HIS BOOK. Arthur James Balfour is now at the helm of British affairs as successor to Lord Salisbury, and being a Cecil, we sincerely hope that lie will keop up the traditions of his house iu iirinly repressing- the arrogant encroachments of the Papacy.

He has, iu conjunction with Gladstone, been dubbed a Jesuit in disguise, in fact one of the " secret fifth"; of this, of course, we have no direct proof, and can only form an estimate of his probable actions by a review of his past life and writings. It is from tlie early writ ings of a man tiiat we have the best chance of forming a true estimate of Ids character.

Is Our Education System Godless? POWERFUL STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 23 August 1902

Is Our Education System Godless? POWERFUL STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION. Speaking at North Sydney on Monday, Mr. Perry, the Minister for- Public Instruction, made an important reference to the subject of religious instruction in public schools. There were some, he exclaimed,, who described our system of education as a godless one, and these statements, which liad been published abroad, were liable to do harm. But, for his part, be maintained that religious instruction received all attention. Such instruction, as he would presently show, was thoroughly unsec tarian in character. Section 7 of the Public Instruction Act provided that general religious teaching should form part of the course of secular instruction. This religious teaching was placed on the same footing as geography, grammar, or any other subject. At the annual inspection of schools, the failure of any class to reach the standard in Scripture would tell against the teacher, just as satisfactory work would tell i...

ASHFIELD BRANCH No. 12. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 23 August 1902

ASHFIELD BRANCH No. 12. "Australia's Peril" formed tlie subject of Jklr. H. Long's lecture iu the Wesleyan School Hall on the night of August lltli. The member for .the district was in the chair, and also on the platform were the Revs. Gainford, Dunn, and Osborne, and' Messrs. Fraser and Deans. The hall was well tilled with an appreciative audience. Sir. Long handled bis subject iu his usual way—deliberate, incisive, convincing. He showed how Roman Catholicism had failed in other lands, and related instances that came under his own observation that could possibly have no other effect than failure. He had no sympathy with weak-kneed Protestants, and saw nothing patriotic , or intelligent in the too common remark that " one religion is as good as another." 'People may be sincere and at the same time be*very dark and ill-informed con cerning the faith and teachings of our Lord and Saviour, as revealed to us in the Word of God. As patriots and Protestants it was our duty to resist the e...

On' Saturday afternoon a complimentary harbour excursion was tendered to Dr. and -Mrs. Torrey and i Mr. Alexander. About 400' friends boarded the "Lady Hampden," and were conveyed up Middle Harbour. • The Salvation Arnjy Headquarters and the Central Methodist Mission Bands provided the music. At the Spit a brief landing was made, where Hr. Alexander led a happy impromptu testi mony meeting. Chatting to a press representative, Dr. Torrey said he was disappointed_wifch the daily press in Melbourne, bocauso they granted so little space to reports of his mission. "Why, if a movement of anything like the «cale of the Melbourne one were going on in Chicago^ the best papers would probably give " at least two solid pages a day to it.

PROTESTANT PARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 23 August 1902

PROTESTANT PARBOTS. Sir,—Beading with mucli interest in your valuable paper, the Watchman, re an article on "Disloyalty of Romanism. in Australia," and the contemptuous references to King Edward Yii., it reminded me of an instance which took place last Wednesday afternoon, when some innocent cliildron, coming home from the Catholic school at North Botany, happened to pass mv house, where I liad two parrots hanging on the verandah. One. a Mexican parrot, with a yellow head, and the other a fane plumaged King Ony bird, a bright red. "When, to my astonishment, and in the hearing of others, the smallest of the boys, of which there were three, said to the green bird;—"Hullo cockoy, eockey sing tlio * dirt)* red V "rand iinding the green bird made no response, he said, " Well, cockey sing 1 Wearing o' the Green,'" to which the bird, a splendid talker, politely told him to " shut up." No doubt, Sir, if the eamo boy, or whoever Ins tutor may be, had asked my bird to sing the "Boyne Water," ...

The Protestant Watchtower. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 23 August 1902

| The Protestant Watclitower. , I * The Cardinal " Blowing"— ' The "Daily Telegraph?'in a recent issue i quotes the "Age's" London correspondent to the effect that Cardinal Koran " is more acces sible to interviews since he came to Europe than ho was in Australia." But this, would probablj* be as he and his Jesuit associates wished it fixed up. "Interviewing" is,now, not as it was at first, on the interviewer's initiative, but often on that of the person whose vanity or other motive -craves for public notice. On tliis occasion the interviewer was the repre sentative of a " clerical newspaper,5" which we , may suppose to be in the service of " Holy i Church." The Cardiunl blew his ' trumpet 1 rather blatantly about tho progress of his. ! Chui-cli in New South , Wales. ' He averred i<L that it was " enormous." Sir.
