Whited Sepulchres. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

Whited Sepulchres. [BY A BANKER.] The great city to which the eyes of the civilised world are at the present time so anxiously di rected, Constantinople, is — from a distance — per- haps the most beautiful city to be found anywhere upon the face of the earth. Approached from the sea, especially at sunset, it is indeed a fascinating and attractive spectacle. The slender, tapering, minarets and rounded domes of innumerable mos ques — there are several hundreds of them — tower- ing upward to the sky, are lighted up with a roseate glow, .some of the latter apparently covered with burnished brass, which glitters strangely in the horizontal rays of the setting sun; while the windows of the extensive man sions and lofty buildings on each side of the roadstead glister and sparkle with a vivid fiery glow ; the fine hospital above the graveyard of vScutari, where lie the remains of so many brave British soldiers who died of wounds and disease in the Crimean War, appearing as if a crimson fire...

The Coming Conflict. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

The Coming Conflict. This evening the ball will be set rolling ? by Messrs. Dooley andCatts addressing the electors in Katoomba, and will shortly be followed by speakers and candidates on the liberal side. So hand us down the office lyre, and let us sing : — J. Here's a neap 01 trouoie Drewing — uiereu a nut time coming on, When every tin-pot Statesman will his shining armour don, And sally forth in righteousness to set the country right By belching forth puerilities from platforms every night. They will spout the same old catch- words, and they'll yell the same old gags, They will make the moon turn yellow, and they'll split the sky to rags. They'll rant and rave and rumble, and each other they'll traduce In speeches one-third blither and the remnant — mere abuse. They will face the people proudly, of ' 'supremacy' ' they'll rave, And on every opportunity the grand old flag the}' 'II wave ; ? They will palter with our problems, overpower us good and hearty About the saving virtues ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

The Pope, who is shortly to assume the unaccustomed role of defendant in the Italian law courts, is the hero of an amus ing and characteristic little story which is now going the round of his native press. A deputation of monks, representing some order, had recently obtained an interview with him. According to the etiquette of the Vatican, only Cardinals are allowed to sit in the Pope's presence ; thus an invita tion from him to do so is deemed equivalent to a Cardinalate. Now His Holiness is, about all things, a plain man, frequently ignoring the observances of the Papal Court. He promptly begged the monks to take seats. They, hardly knowing whether they could venture to do so, remained hesita tingly before him. 'Surely, ' cried the Pope, in tones of mild exasperation, ' you do not expect me to draw the chairs forward for you ?' The Pope's sense of humor was ad mirably exemplified a short time ago, when he asked a Hebrew gentleman from Venice to convey his apostolic blessing to a s...

The Hungarian Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

The Hungarian Farmer. Writing on the ' Hung-ariari Gentleman Farmer r in the September 'Windsor,' Baroness Orczy says :-'He is the most contented individual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because, he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his newspaper which arrives daily from Budapest, and has vague ideas that all Austriaus are thieves and scoundrels, and that therefore a union with Austria is neces sarily fatal to Hungary ; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not in terest him in the least ; it does not affect the rich ness of his wheat or the weight of his maize-heads. A keen sportsman, he is unhampered by any game laws. In Hungary no one is allowed to carry a gun unless he owns so much land, and the owner of land — and therefore of game — naturally makes his own laws for its preservation. His chief characteristic is hospitality, almost barbaric in its lavishuess — his guests, his friends, his relations...

England's Most Recent Invader. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

England's Most Recent Invader. In an interesting- paper on ' The Inva sion of Great Britain,' which appears in the August number of the Windsor Maga zink, accompanied by many interesting illustrations, maps and portraits, the Hon. Charles Russell recalls a number of curious circumstances connected with the expedi tions organised on the Continent by the Irish patriot, Wolfe Tone. None of these are more curious than the end of that strange enthusiast. When the Hoche struck Tone was, with the other officers, made prisoner of war. A few days after landing, however, Wolfe Tone was recog nised and immediately arrested as a felon, and sent fettered and on horseback under .?an escort of dragoons to Dublin. There, .although the ordinary courts were sitting, he was tried by court martial and sentenced to be hanged in forty-eight hours, in spite of his appeal to be shot as a soldier. To the last he breathed defiance. Addressing his military judges, he said : ' From my ? earliest youth I have r...

Such an announcement at a time when the people of Katoomba are on the verge of decid ing whether or no we are to have a Town Plall in an accessible position, seems to be likely to affect the decision of the ratepayers,, and for this reason j. cvojv ci iii-tjiu ui _)'uui vciiuciuivr spciuc .Tirol, ui tui, I am not aware how much money the owners in tend spending on the old shell, but to make it at all presentable or useful, a considerable sum must be expended, and we have no guarantee that this will be done.

To Mr. Meagher : Pie remembered asking Mr. Smedley who was supposed to be first on the scene, in order to find out if possible the origin of the fire. He examined the place, and found traces of mice on the premises. It is possible for mice to cause fire. They were often very dangerous. A fire caused by mice would not be from the shelves but from the floor. He represented all the Insurance Companies. He remembered Mr. Panriell. He did not arrive at the conclusion that there was any suspicions about th...
