VERSE—AND WORSE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
YEpS-ÄND Pp "To cheat thee of a sigh, Or charm thee ¿a & tear." i -MOOEE. Among his friends in the Federal Senate Ned Harney, who pendulums between Perth and Parliament, is known as "The member for The Ùreat JLust ration Bight" . . . . "The prevalance of pneumonia," says an exchange, "is largely the result of colds contracted in draughty churches." Pew monia. . . . . Choice item from tbe Kalgoorlie Miner: "Aimer wants Board and Lodging, no others kept, widow preferred. State terms, J K.L., Boulder P.O." J.K.L. is evidently on tell or ide. In detailng a recent robben- of a horse, cart, and harness, a local paper gravely an- nounces that the horse and cart had been recovered, but of the harness "no trace has been found !" . . * . A local priest of the good old Father O'Flyon type tells the story. They had been giving the scholars in a well-known local college a history of the most prominent Australian heads of the Roman Church. After enumerating them in order, he pat a questio...
COLLGARDIE WATER SCHEME. COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. PROBABLE CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
COOLGARDIE WATER SCHEME. &nbsp; &nbsp; COMMISSIONERS REPORT. PROBABLE CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS. The report of the Royal Commission ap- pointed to inquire into the Coolgardie water scheme, laid on the table of the House during the week, is the fullest possible justification of all the SUNDAY TIMES has published on the matter, and clearly indicates what and who are responsible for the unbalance of the mind of the late C. Y. O'Connor. We have it on good au- thority that the Government have &nbsp; under consideration the advisability of taking criminal proceedings against certain parties guilty of scandalous irregularities and gross breaches of trust. Part of the report reads :-" It is difficult to arrive at any other conclusion from the evidence offered; documentary and oral, than that it was the discovery of Mr. O'Connor of the degree to which his 'implicit trust' had &nbsp; been misplaced and the financial results pro- ceeding the reform that finally unbal...
THEY SAY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
THEY SAY That a well-known South Western saw- bones includes a dashing damsel among his clinical chattels. That the musical medico teaches her the piano while his lodge patients shiver in the surgery. That one sufferer was left with a fish bone in his gullet while Esucalipus initiated the novice into "Love's Sweet Song." That babies are also expected not to get born while he teaches the witch to play whist. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; That the staff of a local daily swore off swankey at the manager's instigation. That they find the beer at the adjacent &nbsp; brewery equally palatable—and cheaper. That the profits of the said wallop works &nbsp; have shrunk since the swoop of the scribes. That surprise parties are barred for ever &nbsp; from the mansion of a South Perth mag- nate. That the last invasion from Victoria Park &nbsp; accepted his exhortation to "help them- &nbsp; selves." That under cover of a farewe...
BALKED BOODLERS. TRIUMPH OF THE TREASURY SECRET SERVICE SUSPENSE ACCOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
BALKED BOORERS. TRIUMPH OF THE TREASURY. SECRET SERVICE SUSPENSE ACCOUNT. In connection with the secret purchase by the Government of land at Rocky Bay, papers have been laid on the table of the House, and some highly interesting infor- mation has come to light. In the Auditor- &nbsp; General's report the transaction is very severely criticised. Although his criticism may be justifiable from a constitutional point of view, if considered by the standard and value of his office, it may still be open to question whether the whole circum- stances are known. It may be thought in his case that self interest had nothing what- ever to do with the nature of his report, for it is admitted by the Government that the transaction was irregular. It appears that this proposal to acquire land at Rocky Bay, and, as a matter of fact, practically in a straight Line From Near Cottesloe to the present Fremantle station, has been a matter of long standing. Indeed, Sir John Forrest had this matter...
SUSPECTED CHILD MURDER. A SERVANT GIRL'S SECRET. A BABE THROWN IN A WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
SUSPECTED CHILD MURDER. &nbsp; &nbsp; A SERVANT GIRL'S SECRET A BABE THROWN IN A WELL. The usual serenity of Bunbury has been greatly disturbed during the week by the discovery on Sunday last-of the body of a dead babe in a well in the rear of premises &nbsp; in Victoria-street. Suspicion fell on a young girl named Pfitzner, who bad been em- ployed as a waitress and housemaid at the &nbsp; Premier Boarding House kept by Mrs. &nbsp; Howard. At the adjourned inquest, held &nbsp; &nbsp; on Friday before the Coroner, Mr. W. H. Timperley, Mrs. Howaud testified that "on Friday, 18th July, she found a parcel of clothes underneath the brick oven in the back yard, about five or six feet from the back verandah. The clothes consisted of pieces of sheet, a towel, and a pair of &nbsp; women's drawers; they were rolled in a heap. Examined the clothes and found &nbsp; them all stained, apparently with blood; the stains were al...
PERTH HARRIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
PERTH HARRIERS. The Members of the Perth Harriers' Club yesterday held a handicap race on the W.A.C.A. Ground during the half-time in- &nbsp; terval of the football match between West Perth and Perth clubs. The distance was 600 yards, and there were eight competitors. The winner turned up in D. Edwards, who &nbsp; beat W. Nairn, who came with a strong run at the finish, by two yards. The favor- ite, Max Law, was third. The time taken was 1.15 2-3. Mr. Barry Brown acted as starter, Messrs. W. Kingsmill, M.L.A., and W. H. Prendergast, as judges, and Messrs G. Parker and A. G. Russell, as timekeepers. &nbsp; &nbsp;
ADELAIDE HUNT CLUB. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
ADELAIDE HUNT CLUB. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. The Point to Point Steeple in connec- tian with the Adelaide Hunt Club was de- cided this afternoon, and resulted in a victory for Mrs. A. C. Cares Brownlock, who started favorite at 5 to 2. The master of the hunt, Lord Richard Neville, on Lar- rikin, was second. That most deserving institution, the West Australian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, will give their annual grand fancy dress ball at Government House under distinguished patronage on 20th proximo. The function is certain to be a brilliant one, and the object is one which claims the practical sympathy of the com- munity. The new business at Fremantle opened &nbsp; yesterday by Messrs. Hicks and Lissiman &nbsp; was patronised by crowds phenomenal for their eagerness to purchase. To judge by the success of the opening day the firm has a bright future before it. The annual demonstration of Eight Hours' Day, wbich will be the twelvth of its kind in W.A., ...
HALL DIVORCE CASE SENSATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
HALL DIVORCE CASE SENSATIONAL DEVELOP- MENTS. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. The hearing of the Hall divorce case was adjourned from Friday till Tuesday. It is exciting more interest than any case tried here for years, the Towitta murder trial alone excepted. One of the barristers in the case says its developments will be more sensational than any other of the same &nbsp; species that he has known. There are rumors that blackmailing was attempted in connection with one of the prominent parties, and it is said that one per- son on making the offer to his em- &nbsp; &nbsp; ployer to "keep his mouth shut" for a &nbsp; consideration, was given half an hour to &nbsp; clear out of the house. The petitioner's &nbsp; &nbsp; chief witnesses are Miss Belt and three of Mrs. Hall's servants. The gardener, who is likely to give evidence of a nature which will subject him to some severe cross examination, will give the court some trouble, because he is...
PILMER AT COLLIE. CHARGE OF IMMORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
PILMER AT COLLIE. The heads of the Police Department are evidently determined to treat the scandal of the policeman (Corporal Pilmer) at the Collie in the same way as they treated the Fremantle satyrs. Pilmer employed a ser- vant girl about 18 years of age, named Dorothy Dodds, and this voting lady charges &nbsp; him with having taken immoral liberties with her. Supporting the girl are the four constables under Pilmer. A charge so serious as this should be heard in open court, and the public have a right to judge as to the evidence on both sides. But In- &nbsp; &nbsp; spectors Lawrence and Holmes have been commissioned to hear the ease with closed &nbsp; doors. Moreover, the authorities have added to the scandal by refusing to Suspend Policeman Pilmer, of Nor' West-Nigger-flogging fame while under a charge of such gravity. The girl &nbsp; has even been refused counsel. Mr. Ogden, a lawyer resident at the Collie, was anxious to take np the caus...
REMARKABLE DRAPERY REDUCTIONS. J. H. PELLEW'S FREMANTLE SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
REMARKABLE DRAPERY REDUCTIONS. J.H. PELLEW'S FREMANTLE SALE. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sales may come and sales may go, but in the annals of Fremantle prices nothing yet displayed can in'any -way comparé ;iriva. the" quotations listed by the firm of J.H. &nbsp; Pelloew, High-street, Fremantlem during the currency of the present-disposal of their vast stock. Yesterday the business transacted was of such an inspiriting nature that new arrivals in the Port were at first glance somewhat puzzled in their endeavor to account for the steady stream of men, women, and children flocking within the &nbsp; portals of the noted drapery establish- ment. The liberal display of bunt- &nbsp; &nbsp; ing, with which the exterior of the building was decked, added to the &nbsp; prominent installation of a first-class band was responsible largely for the popular idea that the enterprising Fremantle manager was forcing the running in the the matter of Coronation...
CABLEGRAMS. CRICKET. AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN IN ENGLAND. FOURTH TEST MATCH. AUSTRALIA, 299; ENGLAND, 262. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
CABLEGRAMS. &nbsp; CRICKET. AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN IN ENGLAND. FOURTH TEST MATCH. AUSTRALIA, 299; ENGLAND, 262 LONDON, SATURDAY. The fourth of the series of five test matches between the Eleventh Australian Eleven and a team representative of All Eng- land was commenced, at Manchester on Thursday. The weather was beautifully fine, but heavy rain had fallen during the preceding night and had rendered the wicket soft and slow at the commencement. This favored the bowlers towards the close of the day. Winning the toss was a big advantage &nbsp; under the circumstances, of which Trumper and Duff made the most use. These two had a hundred on the board for the first hour's play, both batting brilliantly, and it was not till the score had reached 135 that Lockwood got Duff caught behind, the retiring batsman's share being 54. Trumper and Hill continued the run- &nbsp; &nbsp; getting, but with the total at 173 the former was caught at the wickets off Rhodes. He ha...
SEDDON ON TRADE. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
SEDDON ON TRADE. &nbsp; LONDON, SATURDAY. Mr. Seddon, at the Marine Engineers' dinner, said that the navy was unnecessary if trade and commerce were allowed to collapse. Dwelling on the preferential question, he said he feared the motherland did not realise the extent of her dependence on the colonies, nor how much the colonies contributed to her commercial supremacy. He recommended the establishment of a technical University wherein the men of the motherland and the colonies could receive advanced instruction and greatly promoting trade.
THE CONFERENCE. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
THE CONFERENCE, LONDON, SATURDAY. Mr. Chamberlain, Lord Selbourne, Mr. Brodrick, Sir Arthur Nicholson, Earl On- slow, and Mr. Anderson, were among those present at the Premiers' Conference, when Mr. Seddon proposed that each colony should establish military reserve selected &nbsp; from the local forces. The proposal was discussed throughout the sitting, during which the general military defence of the Empire was canvassed, but no resolution was arrived at. Mr. Broderick asked the delegates to con- &nbsp; sider certain proposals regarding the military defence of the empire, and the delegates will probably enter further into the subject, separately explaining the par- ticular requirements of their respective colonies at the next sitting. On Wednesday &nbsp; the conference will discuss the political &nbsp; relations of the empire, the wisdom of hold- &nbsp; ing periodic conferences, and other subjects. &nbsp;
LATE SPORTING. LOCAL RACING. CANNING PARK MEETING. ORLANDO WINS THE BRUSH STEEPLECHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
LATE SPORTING. LOCAL RACING. CANNING PARK MEETING. ORLANDO WINS THE BRUSH STEEPLE- CHASE There was a capital attendance at this popular tryst yesterday, when the weather was delightfully fine and the sport exciting. The Flying Handicap provided a great finish, Spinnifex just beating Silver Queen by half a head on the post, and the pair started equal favorites. The field in the Steeplechase was reduced to three, Orlando, Thackaringa, and Torrent. The first-named started a warm favorite at 5 to 4 on. After they had travelled six furlongs, Orlando took command, and from that out the issue was never in doubt, Bolger's gelding winning in a very hollow fashion from old Thacka- ringa. The winner is now favorite for the Great Western Steeplechase at the Boulder, &nbsp; in which he has a chance second to none. The Lawley Handicap was voted a moral for Novitiate, but Tripoli, who was well &nbsp; &nbsp; backed, came out in the straight, and won comfortably. The Galloway...

VICTORIAN RACING. MOONEE VALLEY MEETING. BACKERS BADLY BEATEN. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. The Moonee Valley races were held to-day in fine weather. There was a large gather- ing, but backers were still in bad form, not a single favorite getting home. The best priced winner was Gratis who started at fours. Three of the successful horses were rank outsiders. Pauline Louise who won the Welter Handicap from a big field, was totally neglected. The following are the details; HURDLE RACE.

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
TURF TATTLE. &nbsp; The V.A.T.C. Grand National Meeting is to commence on Saturday. &nbsp; The Helena Vale Club has secured Satur- day next for a meeting. The stakes aggre- gate £130. &nbsp; The W.A.T.C. has raised Secretary Keyser's salary to £500 per annum. They should also augment Chipper, the starter's stipend, which is inadequate to the impor- tance of the duties. Mr. J. C. Foster has apparently resigned the judgeship of the W.A.T.C. He should have done so years ago, his age being against the proper discharge of the very &nbsp; onerous duties. All the same, Mr. Foster &nbsp; has done, without fee or reward, yeoman &nbsp; service to the autocratic governing body, &nbsp; &nbsp; and there can be no gainsaying his honesty &nbsp; or purpose—the breath of suspicion was never associated with his name. It is pleas- ing to hear that he has been mde a life member of the club. &nbsp; In several important event...
