LATE SPORTING. LOCAL RACING. HELENA VALE MEETING. ONCE MORE WINS THE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
LATE SPORTING. LOCAL RACING. HELENA VALE MEETING. ONCE MORE WINS THE RAILWAY. The good luck of this club followed it on Saturday, when fine weather greeted visitors to the popular tryst. The course, despite the heavy rain that fell during the week, was in capital order, and the sport was exciting throughout the afternoon. Veracity was made favorite in the Hurdles. Both Torrent and Williambury were well backed, but Ormuz had few friends, even at the tempting price of 7 to 1. Veracity struck a hurdle at the back of the course, and pulled up dead lame. Williambury easily stalled off the challenge of Torrent after the last hurdle was jumped, and won com- fortably. The good field of 12 faced the barrier in the Railway Handicap. Prince was seized upon as the best of the lot, and he went out a strong favorite. Once More met with strong support, and the Hannans Handicap and Kalgoorlie Cup candidate was at 3 to 1 at the close. Wise Step and Willie carried the most money of the others. The ru...

TURF TATTLS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
General entries for the Kalgoorlie Spring meeting are due on Monday next. There are rumors that Simile is likely to be the first horse backed for money in the Melbourne Cup. The St. Simon horse has 8st. in the big two mile handicap, and if he can be given a sound preparation he may prove even a better investment to "Jimmy" Baron than the flying Sit Foote. Simile is every inch an aristocrat, being by St. Simon from the Oaks victress Minri, whose dam was by the English Derby winner, Lord Lyon. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; One of the best treated horses on his best form in the Kalgoorlie Cup is Admiral, who has 8st. Last year with 8.9 up he captured the Breeders' Handicap at S.A. Tattersall's meeting, beating a field of nine and carving out the six furlongs in 1.16, and at the S.A.J.C. April meeting he won the South Australian stakes, seven furlongs, in 1.33, beating, among others, Clifton, Manlock, and Stuart King. &...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
The fourth test match commences at Manchester on Thursday next. With fine weather and good wickets—conditions which all cricket lovers ardently hope for—another great game may be looked forward to, though under these circumstances it is more than likely that the game will be drawn. The English team will probably be the same that did battle at Sheffield, early this month (and over which Australia gained such a meritorious win), except that Ranjit- &nbsp; sinhji is sure to replace two of the batsmen, while Hurst may give way to some other all-round player. In the early match against Gloucestershire, played in the early part of the week, Aus- tralia put up their highest scorfe to date— closing with five wickets for 545—and &nbsp; achieved the easiest of one-innings victorious. In their two essays with the bat the &nbsp; &nbsp; country scored 155 and 168, and were thus &nbsp; still in a minority of 222. Wicketkeeper Roard, with 36, was highest con...
FOOTBALL. THE W.A.F.A. MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
FOOTBALL. &nbsp; THE W.A.F.A. MATCHES. Thank the Lord for small mercies. The announcement that a S. A. team is coming is surely good enough to dissipate tin-pot jealousies. They do say in some quarters that Mr. J. F. Dwyer runs the whole W.A.F.A., in other words, that Billroche is only as clay in his hands, and that J.F.D. is cock of the roost. A good secretary generally does control &nbsp; the destinies of the body he is running. If J.F.D. uses his power improperly, of course he must be bumped—that logic Q.E.D. Whether Dwyer is the j? some people says he is the writer knows not, but the TIMES hold the opinion that J.F.D. did not manage affairs when the goldfielders visited &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the coast, nor the visit of His Excellency and He Ladyship too unsuccessfully. 'Tis said that if a Perth man in the assocation meetings moves in the way of reform, and if a Fremantle player or club is interested, that the delegates from the seaside clos...
INSOLENT SHIPPING COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
INSOLENT SHIPPING COMPANIES. Lindsay L. Morrison writes :—Re- cently in the columns of your valuable journal you exposed the niggardly actions of the firm of Wm. Howard Smith and Sons in connection with their ship Boveric. Now, I would like to supplement your remarks with the following:—I had a letter ad- dressed to me, care of this firm, which letter bears the date stamp of Fre- mantle Post Office as June 9, 1902, and which was placed in their box at the Post Office on that date. Instead of this letter being handed back to the postal officials, it was marked left, and the stamps removed. Then it was hung up in the rack, and there it stayed until I happened to call at Howard Smith's office on Friday last, July 11, when it was handed to me. As this letter contained some very valuable and important information, I have called twice a day at the Post Office making inquiries for it, but always with the same result—no letter there for me. The following day (Saturday) I called to see Mr. M...
CRONK JUSTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
CRONK JUSTICES. "Pro Bono Publico" writes:—I think the thanks of the public of this State are due to you for the manly way in which yon have exposed the abuse of justice by so-called J's.P. in both town and country. It would be interesting to the country if those who appoint men to these important positions pub- lished the qualifications of those ap- pointed so that people might have an opportunity of judging (beforehand) &nbsp; whether they will accept those men as administrators of the law. At present it is all done behind the scenes, and as it appears to me the greatest scoun- drel in a district gets the appoint- ment, to the disgust and detriment of the district. I was obliged recently, owing to the scoundrelly ways of one of these J's.P., to sue him in the court for a small sum of wages. Being new to the procedure of courts of law, I did not, unfortunately, put him on oath, and he told the most infamous, damnable lien in open court that it was possible for a man to utte...
SWEATING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
SWEATING EXTRAORDINARY. "A Victim" writes :—I submit for your perusal an advertisement (which appears in another column) for a caretaker which occurred in the "West Australian" of July 11. I went to Cottesloe to view the conditions, and after waiting about for over four hours for one of the two mentioned offices to open, I succeeded in getting a view of a type-written code of instructions. Several other applicants were, like myself, allured by this will-o'-the-wisp, after having to pay our railway fares and waste best part of a day. It seems only too ap- parent that the intellect of this grand committee is on a par with its gener- osity, and it would be far better and show a degree of honesty were they to advertise the conditions and how much they are in a position to pay for it. They should not fool men who are de- sirous of working for their living, and cannot afford to waste their time and money answering such imbecilic ad- vertisements, and at such dishonest remuneration. I woul...
SWAN ORPHANAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
Alfred Martin (Midland Junction), writes :—In your issues of 29th June, you have exposed the ill-treatment by young Ferguson towards the poor orphan boy. It is an outrageous shame that these poor lads are allowed to be treated in this manner. The whole management of the institution (the Swan Orphanage) wants inquiring into. I see the boy in question is down here this week. I would like to ask the Rev. A. Burton, also, how it is that the Swan church-goers see so little of him at their church? Their spiritual wants are generally attended to by our important auctioneer of Midland Junction (Mr. S. A. Brown) while our own minister is scorching acorss country to one or other of the numerous places out of the diocese. If the Swan and Midland Junction pay for a minister they want a minister, not an auctioneer. Go to Kelly and Company whare yon can get a good boot cheap. &nbsp; Edmund Dean and Co.; Chemists, 415 Hay-street, for all disinfectants.
AN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
AN EXPLANATION. A fact worthy of notice among firms and individuals interested in horses and cattle is the increasing demand which exists for "Kondo." This reliable food is a curative for many of the aliments peculiar to horses and cattle. Proof of the worth of this pre- paration may be obtained by referring to the following well-known Fremantle firms and individuals, who are but a few of the many using "Kondo," but whose names are men- ' Uoned owing to the fact of being publicly known:-The Diamond Express Go., the Frank Cadd. Carrying X3o.; P. J. nevron, Ctötnin>CBrtag# . Customs and general agent ; Alex. ' Ahearn, Customs boat and rail carrier. And "there* are others." .
MERCHANTS! [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
MERCHANTS! YOU DESIRE PROSPERITY and the patronage of the people, you desire to build up a firm, substantial, and successful busi- &nbsp; ness in Western Australia, and to do so you depend on the masses, do you not? Of &nbsp; &nbsp; course you do. No one can be independent; every one depends on the patronage of those &nbsp; around him. The "SUNDAY TIMES" is the people's paper. It is universally read. &nbsp; &nbsp; See the attention of the people through the advertising columns of the people's paper, and prosperity is yours. The "TIMES" has by far the largest circulation ia W.A. Advertise first of all in the " TIMES," then in the other papers if you choose.
The Sunday Times SUNDAY, JULY 20, 1902. AVOIDING DISSOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY, JULY 20, 1902. &nbsp; &nbsp; AVOIDING DISSOLUTION. ONCE more our political fetiches have gathered in the Hay-street Olympus. Vice-Royalty has made another stereo- typed speech, and the parley house is in full swing, and the familiar thunder of petty palaver resounds among the rafters. But what should be a great occasion, hemmed in like a circling halo by the people's reverence, passes with all the public unconcern of an amateur bagpipes practice. No one seems to care whether Parliament is in session or recess, and beyond the mere gratification of an idle curiosity no one seems desirous of knowing who are the approved leaders of the Parlia- mentary sections. There is a sense of weary wonder among the public, a sort of idle interest as when one waits long and is disappointed often, for a boon that never seems to come. All faith in the political composition of the pre- sent House has vanished, and the public are now only waiting for it to die a ...
SIR ARTHUR LAWLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
SIR ARTHUR LAWLEY. Sir Arthur Lawley has made up his mind to leave us, and all the snobbish journals in the country pretend to shed tears at the fact. They will give his suc- cessor as demonstrative a welcome, and then act as though they never remembered we ever had a Lawley amongst us. "The King is dead—long live the King," is just as applicable to governors as to Royal scions. And Sir Arthur, on his part, will pretend to be sorry he is forsaking us when &nbsp; the truth may be he is heartily glad he is going to a better billet. He came here for his owhn good, and he leaves us for precisely the same reason. We say this not because we have any special fault to find with the guberna- torial potentate, for on the whole he has pleased our groper "sassiety" during his sojourn here. Here is certainly the best we have had and is undoubtedly popular. He has done what most Governors have done and will continue to do in looking after himself, but he has done it with a consider- able ...
CHARGES AGAINST A CLERGYMAN. AN ENGLISH VICAR TRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
CHARGES AGAINST A CLERGYMAN. AN ENGLISH VICAR TRIED. &nbsp; The following case was tried at Carlisle, England, on Friday, May 23, before the Consistory Court of the Diocese, against the &nbsp; Rev. James Anderson, for 13 years vicar of Holy Trinity, Whitehaven. It is interesting &nbsp; as being the first case under the new Clergy &nbsp; Discipline Act, which might, perhaps, be &nbsp; adopted with advantage in the Common- wealth :—There were three charges. First, that on Thursday, 19th July, 1900, between &nbsp; 3 and 4 o'clock in the afternoon, on the road- way in the White Park, near Whitehaven &nbsp; Castle, the defendant was guilty of immoral &nbsp; acts, in handling indecently over her dress the person of Isabella Herthington, a blind girl; second, that on the 11th February, 1902, he was guilty of fornication with the &nbsp; said Isabella Hetherington in the Granary &nbsp; Yard, Whitehaven ; and thir...
CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. "All the venal crowd." —BYRON. &nbsp; Theh talking shop has opened in full swing. Salisbury seeks the solace of seclusion. &nbsp; Geil has been beguiling Fremantle during &nbsp; the week. The Government pets were badly defeated &nbsp; at West Perth. Toby Barton bas received a gold medal &nbsp; from the Pope. Moran's friends should now keep their eye on him and see that he goes politically &nbsp; steady. &nbsp; &nbsp; The lesson Tom Molloy received at West Perth should at least teach him modesty for &nbsp; the future. Geil's clerical committee are very slow in publishing that very necessary detailed and audited balance-sheet of the Perth &nbsp; Simultaneous Mission. &nbsp; The political outlook for the present is one long monotonous outstretch of chaos, with a few scattered thunderstorms. —With apologies to Prophetic Cooke. There was a promise to-show clemency to prisoners during...
A SONG OF ALCOHOL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
A SONG OF ALCOHOL. BY DRYBLOWER. [Scientists agree that until an electrical &nbsp; &nbsp; revolution takes place alcohol is the power &nbsp; of the future for cheap and handy motors.] &nbsp; Sing a song of alcohol, Powerful and cheap, Guaranteed to make you loll Or to make you leap. &nbsp; We have looked upon it long Merely as a crink, Fit to send the weak and strong, &nbsp; On their "rolling pink." &nbsp; Other uses now we know For this eau-de-vie, For the fluid's full of po- Tentiality. Once it merely made us feel &nbsp; "Dunno where we are," &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Now its force will drive a tram— &nbsp; Boat or vessel, cart or pram— &nbsp; Cab or motor car. Once we only saw its power In the boozer's lurch, &nbsp; Now that power leagues per hour &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Carries us to church. &nbsp; Once it made us blew our stuff &...
MOLLOY'S SETTLING UP. A ROW IN COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
MOLLOY'S SETTLING UP. A ROW IN COMMITTEE. Albert T. Zucker writes:—Knowing how ready yonr paper is to take up a little griev- ance and bring it before the public, I must complain of the manner in which several &nbsp; people employed on behalf of the election were treated. The four scrutineers engaged on Mr. Molloy's behalf understood that they were to get a guinea for their day's work, but when they came to be paid tiley were told they were cut down to 12s. 6d, for a heavy day's work. As for myself, I worked &nbsp; at the committee rooms all day Sunday till 11.45 in the night, and acted in the capacity of scrutineer on the Monday, I was offered the paltry sum of 12s. 6d. for the two days of hard work, after being led to understand I was to receive two pounds for my work. On my refusal to take the money I was given &nbsp; to anderstand that Mr. Molloy had been fleeced of his money, and that I either had to take that or get nothing. A deputation waited on Mr. M...

Hymus' Chemist Shop, Hay-street, Perth, and procure a free sample bottle of Cobbina' Syrup of Eucalyp- tus and Wild-Cherry for coughs and colds, on Monday, July 21.

By consulting the comfort and convenience of his customers, Mr. Ryan's business is substantially increasing. Best brands tobaccos and cigars on hand. Delicious afternoon tea at "The Alexan- dra," Barrack-street. &nbsp; Bald heads will soon be a thing of the past since "Doxo" has come.
RESTFUL ROTTNEST. ATROCITIES TO ABORIGINALS. A PAST HIDEOUS HAUNT OF HORROS. SUGGESTIONS FOR A SANATORIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
RESTFUL ROTTNEST. ATROCITIES TO ABORIGINALS. PAST HIDEOUS HAUNT OF HORRORS. SUGGESTIONS FOR A SANATORIUM. Now that Rottnest Island is to go the &nbsp; way of all negotiable territory and pass into the hands of speculative auctioneeers and land sharks, it will be interesting to have a peep at the place as it was in the days of its &nbsp; pride as a prison abode of the native vic- tims of West Australian squatterdom. The spot has ever been desecrated by human brutality since the advent of the whites to the West, and even now its beauteous soli- tudes and picturesque shores are to be sacrificed to the greed-hunting of miser- able land agents and their speculating &nbsp; clients. We have no love of nature in Western Australia, to judge by our treat- ment of this island ; no desire to keep from the corroding touch of avarice some restful &nbsp; resort where the public may obtain the pure open air and isolation from the turmoil of &nbsp; &nb...
KALGOOLIE KETCHUP [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
KALGOORLIE KETCHUP BY KURRAJONG. &nbsp; The Golden Mile, wore particularly that portion of it adjacent to Bouldertown, reeks &nbsp; of cyanide fumes. Residents have become accustomed to the faistly sulphurous flavor of the atmosphere, and take no more notice of it than a Parisian takes of the smell of absinthe. Strangers notice it at once, and speculate what effect it has on the death rate. It would be difficult to convince me &nbsp; &nbsp; that such effect is trifling. The enormous dumps of "vatted" sands are probably a much graver menace to health than dung- hills or rubbish-tips would constitute. When the question of filling up worked-out stones with cyanided tailings was being dis- cussed in Parliament a few years ago, some body (I think it was Morgans) pointed out that the staff was rendered perfectly in- nocuous by exposure to the air for a certain &nbsp; &nbsp; time. This may be so, but that the expos- ing process should be carr...
