Harold King: Bush Parson. I [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
Harold King: Bush Parson. By NEVBB.TIBE. I. Tub good ship 11 Tarana " was steadily plougg ing her way up the Australian coast, bisectinh with a long streak of foam the inky expanse of water, and making the lowering sky still darker as she belched forth dense volumes of black smoke from her great funnel. "A dirty night," muttered the captain, as the oil-skin clad mate relieved him on the bridge. " A dirty night," the very pots and pans, rattling with every roll of the vessel, seemed to echo. A few seamen made everything snug on deck aud hurried below, glad to exchange for the welcome glow of the fo'castle the doleful Bound of the moaning surge,—moaning as it broke on a coast scarred with, a score of wrecks. The gulls had. long since departed. Still the liner plunged resolutely on into the gloom. The last night at sea! What feelings did not the thought stir up in eveiy voyager's breast! The long* weeks spent on board seemed to have faded like the dream that passes away with morning li...
IN FRANCE [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
IN FRANCE fopoiy was losing its hundred heads fast, and Truth seemed to bo on the verge of final victory as its Banner was borne fonvard "by the intrepid Hugenots under Coligny; then caiuo the massacae of St. Bartholomew's Eve, and Popery triumphed. After that Yoltaire scourged it with ridicule, and the Revolution smote its power savagely, when its priests wero guilo tiued, asses wore stabled in its churches tied up with pricRt's stoles for halters; and tho communion cups were used for drunken orgies accompanied with all manner of obscenity in sacred places. But Popory again, for a time, recovered. The Dreyfus case showed Franco Lately under tho control of tho Jesuits, who hadadroitly manipulated tho military schools, saturated the young officers witii Jesuitism, and, of course, captured in this way tho army, end the nation with it. But the Dreyfus trial exposed how tho Hydra was destroying all patriotism and degrading tho people into mere puppets in the hands of scheming Jesuits, t...
"A Moorland Parish." [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED] THE PARSON WHO WENT MAAZED. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
"A Moorland Parish" BY TKEMAXNE DUNSTAN. [all rights reserved ] The Parson* Who went Maazed. Parson Granvill was of- Jie newer class of clergy, for he had come under the influence of the Oxford movement, and although the full effect of that movement was not seen when he first came to the parish it eventually became manifest. | Nothing is more remarkable than the change which has come over the life of the Anglican Church in Cornwall during the last thirty years. A Church which in many parishes was almost dead has been revived, and although the movement has been mainly high-Church in character it has not been exclusively' so, and we may well rejoice in the vigour and wealth of spiritual life which is now manifest in parishes which were once utterly neglected, spiritually, except for the work of the Method ists. Parson Granville was the second son of the Lord of the Manor. His elder brother natur ally became the squire, and he, as naturally, became the rector. The living was a good one...
POPERY PERPLEXED. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
POPERY PERPLEXED. Jroper\ reminds on© of tli&t monster in classio jjtory called the Hydra. It was begotten by lyphon, the supposed autlior of all evil, and had one hundred hends. Hence it had fangs e",0«# to give the utmost effect to its unpar nllelled ferocity—and as often as a head was cut off two grew from the stump, until fire was applied, by Hercules, who thus destroyed the monster. So, Popery is the offspring of the author of evil; tho father of lies. Xte hundred false and intolerant doctrines are active to-day, though refuted and proven to be fake again and again, Popery has all the vitality of tho DeviL and only the " Fire of God" can destroy it.

MIXED MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
tutxwn marriages. A few weeks ago the Sydney dailies published a decree against mixed marriages lately issued by Roman Catholic authority, and read in every R. C. Church tliroughout the Commonwealth. Prom the violent wording which characterises this document it is evident that anger has been aroused in certain quarters at the result of these marriages, and that more attention is to be paid to this subject in the future than has heretofore been given. Extreme vigilance of a grandmotherly character has ever been one of the chief features of Roman Catholic Govern ment, and theBe new rules are therefore only in accordance with the customary procedure. And of course there has been good reason for vigilance. The social and spiritual history of these States during past years teems with records of the loss to Roman Catholicism caused by mixed marriages. It should also be re membered that there is no church more severe upon converts led away from its teacliiug, or less able to afford so cons...
THE watchman [?] [?] [?] SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1902. AUSTRALIA'S DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1902. AUSTRALIA'S DANGER. AEonDisnop Smith is to approach the Premier of the State with a suggestion that a day of national humiliation and prayer should be pro claimed on account of the drought. The sug gestion has come none too soon. For several years this country has suffered the appalling effects of a long-continued absence of rain, and the prospect at the present moment is gloomier than over. Even In Sydney almost every gar den has a parched appearance, though the water supply is practically unlimited; and it is difficult to compete against the withering effects of blazing sun and hot winds. But we who live in the cities can have iio conception of the awful suffering in the £ar west of the State. Settlors who have grown accustomed to disappointment; who have suffered, as Job suffered, the loss of flocks and herds, and have become almost stoical in the exhibition of their patience, now look upon lands utterly barren and are threatened with absolute ruin. O...
The Protestant Watchtower. THE CAHDINAIAS DEPAKTUKE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
The Protestant Watchtower. THE CAHDINAIAS DEPAKTUKE. The Catholic Press, which is at once tlie Organ of N. S. Wales Popery and anti-British Boerism, says " there will be a great public demonstration when the Cardinal leaves these shores.'1 We hope there will be au honest, outspoken demonstration, and then Romanist and Protestant could join in hearty hurrahs that the most malignant disturber of good will between them was withdrawing his pugnacious presence from this community for over. It will be like getting rid of acute rheumat ism, or a blister, to be rid of those dreaiy heb domadal harangues reported to us in Monday's papers, wherein Popery was whitewashed and Protestantism was blackwashed. It tried pa tience to be bored with statements wherein truth was too much diluted with holy water or something Popish as to be unrecognisable; and the attempts at wit and humour were like a Daniel Lambert labouring with huge obesity at a Scotch reel, or a Highland fling. It is said that when h...
CARDINAL MOHAN'S DEPASTURE. GOOD-BYE—NOT AU REVOIR. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
CARDINAL MOHAN'S DEPASTURE. Good-bye—Not Atj Rbvoir. In the leading article of tlie Telegraph of Wednesday last there are a number of state ments which must liave come with surprise to all who read them. Hero is one: "It is not too much to say tlint the peace nnd harmony of the community were largely in his hands? Hence the comparative absence of Sectarian bitter ness so happily characteristic of the recent years of our history is the lest testimony to the success of Cardinal \ Morarts administration" Is this sar casm ? It certainly can only ho understood in this light, for never, we can confidently say, in the history of N.S.W. has any single man laboured harder to produce Sectarian bitter ness between Roman Catholics and Protestants than Cardinal Moran. What lias been the history of the last two or three years in particular but unprovoked attacks, by tho Cardinal liimself, on Protestant institutions at home and abroad? Vilifying calumnies on our missions and missionaries, wliicli ...
What Christian Endeavor is Doing A JUNIOR "AT HOME." Blest be the tie that binds Our hearts in Christian love [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
Wliat Christian Endeavor is Doing A JUNIOR "AT HOME." Blest bo the tie that binds Our hearts in Christian love Was evidently no meaningless phrase to the company gathered in the Newtown Methodist School-hall on "Wednesday, 12th instant, in response to an invitation from the Methodist Junior Christian Endeavor Society. That " Christian love " liad influenced the promoters of the happy gathering was abundantly evi denced on all sides. The School-hall had been transformed into the likeness of a drawing room, with dainty blue and white drapery, soft ening the crudities of the furniture and impart ing a distinctively C.E. appearance to the arrangements, while the profusion of fresh, bright flowers made one forget the heat and dust, and glare of thosirens,''and whispered of that Land where everlasting 6pring abides And nover withering flowers. ^The guests, for the most part, consisted of the mothers of the Juniors. They were received and welcomed by the Superintendent, Mrs. Booth, and her...
Control of the Liquor Traffic. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
Control of the Liquor Traffic. As to the question of the use or non-use of alcoholic beverages, difference of opinion obtains, but there is a consensus of opinion that free-trade in these drinks cannot be tolerated. Universal and uniform experience has demonstrated that, from the nature of the drink sold, there must be public control of the traffic. Hence tho Licensing Laws of the State. It is assumed that a public need exists ' for the sale of these drinks, but it is also | assumed that the people, for whose supposed I comfort and benefit the sale is permitted shall have a voice in determining-whether the' permit to sell these beverages shall or shall not be granted. LitheLicensiog Actsthereisaprovision for tho taking, every third year the Local Option Vote, which is a recognition of the principle of popular control of tho liquor traffic, but which is rendered practically of small value by an absurd proviso, excepting all houses having twenty or more rooms, from its operation.

Shakespeare's Plays KING LEAK. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
Shakespeare's Plays. KING LEAK. Tho Shakespearian play, "King Lear," | was published in the year 1605. The plot is not an original one. having been told by other dramatic novelists many years before Shakespeare's time, but their efforts make it aypear no more att* active than are glow-wonns m tlic sun, while 'ho masterly touches of SliakeBpeare give it tl.at radiance with which night surrounds the glow-worm. The play is a study of the world under Paganism, tho text of it being: The God* are just, and of our pleasant vices Make instruments to plaguo us. But Christianity is merciful as well as just. The whole play might bo entitled, "Nature and Man," the influence of it being that Paganism would win the world, for then man would lack moral balance. There would be nothing to sustain him, for earthly things are as sliifting sand, and the consequence would bo insanity and chaos. Christianity is necessary, for it offers to man a safeguard from mental chaos, balances tho mind by the aspira...
The Choir Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
The Choir Gallery. O.ye of the daily papers, says the " Review of Reviews," computes that within a short period, •ver seventy Australians have left their native j land to ' achieve celebrity' before admiring I audiences on the other side of the world. The Australian climate has some oppressive features j but it promises to give those born beneath it j the vocal cords of great singers, the sense of j color and form which only great artists know, i This may have some foundation in the fact of the increasing number who leave our shores, but so far as Sydney is concerned those who are left to cany on the work find it most hy ing. To the choir singer who must be in ' good form' all the year round, the humidity of the air at this time of year is veiy relaxing and not at all conducive to strength in the vocal cords, any more than it is to the backbone, and . it is only by constant care and watchfulness that one, who is constantly engaged in choir work, can preserve the throat and vocal cor...
For Sunday Afternoon. REST. HEBREWS IV., 9: "There remaineth therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
For Sunday Afternoon. rest. Hebrews iv., 9: " There remaineth therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God.11 This is the season when many turn from the city with its ceaseless activities, its rush and turmoil, to find rest and recreation where the air is freer from taint and life less burdened with anxiety. It is one of the fortunate con ditions of life in our time that the yearly change is beiug generally recognised as a necessity. I have heoJrd men boast of the number of years they have worked without taking a holiday, but as a rule it is a false economy wKich leads a man to thus persist in strenuous toil, and sooner or later outraged nature will turn round upon and demand a rest more prolonged than that with which one may be content who takes his yearly sabbath of days. God summons us to rest as truly as h3 sum mons us to activity, and in the provision of the sacred Beventh of time He. has shown us that rest is as sacred a duty as work. In nature we have the same lesson. The. ...
Knots Untied. A WORK BY THE LATE BISHOP RYLE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902
Knots Untied. A "woek by THE LATE blbhop ryLE. " The opinions expressed and advocated about the matters discussed are those of an Evangeli cal Churchman. What that means every intel ligent Englishman lrnows, and it is mere affect ation to profess ignorance about the point. They are not popular opinions, I am sure, and are only held, perhaps, by a minority of the English Clergy. But they are the only opinions which I can find in Holy Scriptures, in the Thirty-nine Articles, in the Prayer Book fairly interpreted, in the work of the Befomers, or in in the writings of the Pre-Carolina divines. In the faith of these opinions I have lived for 35. years, and have seen no reason to be ashamed of them however rudely they may have been assailed." With this manly and straightforward declar ation does the late Bishop of Liverpool preface " Knots Untied," being " plain statements on disputed points iu religion from the standpoint of an Evangelical Churchman." The work is not a late one, nor does...
