W.A.T.C. MEETING SUNBROWN THE SHINING STAR. CADENAS THE CUR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

W.A.T.C. MEEilNG SUNBROWN THE SHINING STAR. CADENAS THE CUR     The W.A.T.C. April meeting took place yesterday on the Perth course. The weather was beautifully fine, and there was an ex- cellent attendance for an off day. Backers had none the best of the battle with the books, who had a fairly good day. The racing opened with the Claremont Hurdles, for which the four colored on the card went to the post. Veracity opened favorite, and remained so to the finish, though William- bury and Reminder were both well sup- ported. Reminder had the bad luck to stumble over a fallen hurdle and unseat his rider, and Williambury led all the way and won very easily. This was a strong reversal of form to that shown by the son of Tele- phone at Helena Vale, and it caused con- siderable comment. So Long opened favorite for the Midland Handicap, but before the start the friends of Philosopher tallied round the Tremando colt, and he usurped the position occupied by the son of...

[?]OORAMBYNE ROADS BOARD [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

"Country Bumpkin" writes: Being a reader of your most valuable paper, which I highly esteem, I respectfully   request you to publish a little grie- vance we are now undergoing through the members of our highly-respected   Moorambyne Roads Board. Some     13 months ago application was made to this august body for a road running through Mr. D. C. Lamb's block. Of course, a big noise was made in conse- quence of this application for an outlet which was sorely needed by many people. Finally a monster petition   was got up by the residents of the district and presented to the board. The request of the petition was   granted and the road surveyed. All at once, however, matters came to a full stop. To keep the people quiet concerning the delay in the construc- tion of the road, the board decided to call tenders for fencing and clearing. Accordingly tenders were sent in, but the next heard of the matter was that t...

OLD TIME SURGERY SOMETHING ABOUT FORGO TORTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

Let us imagine an amputation during the tenth century! While half a dozen assistants sat upon the patient and subdued his wild struggles, a sur- geon with a great knife, shaped like a sickle, cut straight down through the skin and muscles of an injured leg, like slicing a sausage or a cucumber. There was no chloroform then. Chloroform is a modern luxury, and was not discovered until the middle of the nineteenth century. A man in those days had to shut his eyes, dig his nails into the palms of his hands, and bear the torture as best he could. As operating room was truly a hell of anguish. No flaps of any kind were made in amputating--simply a great, gaping, bleeding wound, with the bone protruding from its centre. And the bleeding was something awful, the blood spurting from severed vessels ib drenching streams. Nothing was known of stopping the circulation by constriction of the limb with a tourni0 quet, and it was no uncommon thing to see a poor, shrieking wretch bleed to death upo...

The Sunday Times SUNDAY, APRIL 13, 1902. LAKER ON LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY, APRIL 13, 1902 LAKER ON LIGHT. THE history of the Metropolitan Gas Company in the city of Perth would read very much like a chapter of the machinations of the American Stan- dard Oil Company, or a slice from the doings at Tammany Hall. It has been replete with lobbyings in Parliament and wire-pulling in tibe City Council. We have already published the scan-   dalous manœuvres in the Legislative Council of such shareholders as Sir George Shenton and Mr. Crowder, and we have on several occasions found it   necessary to draw public attention to the wiles of the company's agents in the hall of the civic fathers. The attempt last year to force the purchase by the city of the out-of-date plant and appliances of this octopus mono- poly is fresh in the memory of every ratepayer. Then the city councillors made a vigorous but underhand and disingenuous attempt to effect this purchase by such specious pretexts as the referendum and the cry for...

THE CURSE OF THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

THE CURSE OF THE WEST. Tua scientific student ot sociology would find a rich ground in Western Australia for the study of extraordinary anomalous phenomena. With marvellous energy we stop at our ports the incoming of our food supplies and destroy wholesome fruit by the shipload, lest it might find its way to the table of ths poor. On the other hand, all our public officials seem smitten with a blight far more disastrous to the community than the introduction of the codlin moth. Whether what Lord Beauchamp so cruelly called our "birthstains" has anything to do with the official activity for evil, whilst on matters concerning the public honor and well-being there are nothing but apathy, ineptitude and blunders, is more than we pretend to know ; but the fact remains that our public life, from top to bottom, is vitia- ted by the twofold curse of indolence and avarice. We could casually drop in on any of our public bodies and institutions and find ample proof of this fact. Not to come to...

ECCENTRIC ELLIOTT. GOSSIP AND GOSPEL. PILL AND POTION PECCADILLOES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

GOSSIP AND GOSPEL PILL AND POTION PECCADILLOES. Those of our readers who imagine that we publish particulars of public grievances and of the malversations of men in positions of trust and lofty billets merely for the sake of imparting information, do not understand   us. Our purpose in the exposure of wrongs is to have them righted. It is with this object in view that we have attacked the   management of the Geraldton Hospital through the medium of its medical officer,   Dr. Elliott. We desire to see an enquiry   (and reform) as to the way that important institution is conducted ; and that we are justified in our persistency we here give the views of a visitor to the hospital, who speak- ing as an independent witness, with some considerable knowledge of the local circum- stances and the people concerned, tenders the following valuable independent testi- mony :--"Knowing Geraldton as I do, I was naturally more than usually intereste...

GERALDTON WARRIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

GERALDTON WARRIORS. The brilliant Easter manouvres pf the   Geraldton warriors, under the command of Capt. Horst, on the Geraldton racecourse may be described as a melancholy spectacle. -The attendance waa a miserably poor ene, only a couple of dozen infantry and a hand- ful of mounted men putting in an appearance. To a layman's eye it seemed as if there were nearly as many officers as men. On the whole the turn-out was a ludicrous travesty of a Boer-potting expedition. There was a sham battle on Easter Monday afternoon, during which some of the " slim " tactics of De Wet were put in operation. Some mounteds had sighted, as they thought, a party of the enemy and fired their cartridges at the conspicuous white helmets of the foe. Closer investigation, however, showed that there were ho heads inside them. It was merely a clumsy Boer device. But it answered. It is generally conceded, that Sergeant Harry Pass, of the Geraldton Mounted Infantry, who has the advantage of i co...

THE CORONATION. We desire to draw the attention of those   about to proceed to the Old Country to wit- ness the above event that there is on view and for private sale at Sands and McDou- gall's old premises, St. George's Terrace, a magnificent consignment of travelling rugs, capes, caps, etc. Mr. Henry Lawrence, of Adelaide, the manufacturer of these goods, states that this is the best collection of ladies' furs ever brought to WA, and he   guarantees them all this season's goods, free   from moth, and made up in the latest Lon- don styles.

CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. "All the venal crowd." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 April 1902

CYNICAL SYNOPSIS "All the venal crowd."     --Byron     Piesse has still his peace unbroken. Northam's pet parson.--Rev. P. Henn Leake says he is too ignorant yet to be made a judge. Why doesn't the Messenger from Mars take Leake in hand?           The Fremantle Eight Hours Committee are not a happy family. Some say the accounts are not properly cooked. The shooting of Morant and Handcock will show the necessity of ruffians being ex- cluded from even scallawag regiments. We promise a little daylight into the management of the Clentarf Orphanage by- and-by. The case against Falkiner was a public eye-opener. Barrister Haynes, M.L.C, Mayor of the     new municipality of North Perth, prophesies   "that in a few years North Perth will be a populous suburb and a large business centre. By the big speeches the other day we thought it was...

* . * . THE SILENCE BAN.
