IN THE SOUTH. BRIGHTON RACES. HOBART, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
IN THE SOUTH. BRIGHTON RACES. &nbsp; HOBART, Monday. The Brighton Club held its annual sum- mer race meeting to-day in fine but ter- ribly hot weather. There were good fields, and Brighton's reputation for first- class racing, with the excellent facilities for reaching the course, combined to at- tract a very large attendance, the best yet recorded in the history of the club. The course was in good order, but rather hard, and the heat and dust rendered things very uncomfortable for ladies, whilst, to make matters worse, an immense bush fire was burning to windward of the course. The grass on the course was on fire twice, but the flames were extinguished before any damage was done. A notice- able improvement was the new fence all round the race track, which the club had erected since last meeting at a cost of nearly £100. The Railway Department put on the usual cheap trip trains, which were largely patronised, and scores of vehicles conveyed loads by road. Music was supplied ...
NEW YEAR'S DAY. A SUCCESSFUL HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
NEW YEAR'S DAY. A SUCCESSFUL HOLIDAY. The finest of fine weather prevailed for yesterday's holiday, in marked con- trast to the conditions that on New Year's Day of the year just closed made out-of-door enjoyment an absolute im- possibility. True, yesterday was marked by Nature's somewhat too assertive tendency towards the hotter side of things; but what mattered it if the mer- cury ranged into the nineties? People had planned their day's enjoyment as individaul tastes might lead, and a few extra degrees of sunshine was hardly warrant enough to send their well-laid schemes a-gley. The city had prac- tically emptied itself at an early hour and in a variety of directions, and but for those on their way to the Caledo- nian festival, that created the only town attraction, the streets would have been empty indeed. River, rail, and road excursions were liberally patron- ised, and so were the various holiday attractions that our country townships had to offer. Many went a-picnicking, and a...

SIR WILFRID LAURIER AND THE EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
SIR WILFRID LAURIER AND THE EMPIRE. In a memorable appeal which Sir Wilfrid Laurier once made to the Cana- dian people he said:-"You English speaking Canadians are the descendants of the Bretons, Angerins, and Normans who invaded England in the eleventh century. The French-speaking Cana- dians are the descendants of the Bre- tons, Angerins, and Normans who peopled Canada in the sixteenth cen- tury. Let us meet together, not to fight, but to hold the grand assize of peace and commerce." And the most eloquent evidence that this appeal has been taken to heart is the fact that the Canadian Govern- ment, headed by a French-Canadian Premier, and composed of many French-Canadian statesmen, has, by giving the mother country the most practical and hearty hand-shake of as- surance, testified her appreciation of the good government, honourable treatment, and the freedom and pro- tection of the British flag, which have made Canada a great and prosperous dominion. The spectacle of one thousand C...
WHEN BULLETS ARE FLYING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
WHEN BULLETS ARE FLYING. What are the feelings of an officer when, for the first time, he leads his men into battle? asks a writer in "Chums" for November. This is a question which the soldier himself can answer, and we suspect that a good many would be unwilling to go too closely into the subject. The hum of a rifle bullet, the shriek, of a shell, the rush of a cannon shot must be and al- ways has been, extremely trying to the inexperienced warrior. A certain offi- cer, who prefers on this occasion to be nameless, has frankly described his first experience in battle. "We were advancing to the scene of operations," he says. "On entering a strip of wood it occurred to me that my men, being raw recruits, would not fight well on horseback, and so I ordered them to dismount. This, of course, stopped the whole body of the army behind the regiment. While the men were leisurely tying their horses, an officer came up at a furious gait, and asked peremptorily: 'What have you stopped here for...
ANGLO-FRENCH RELATIONS. FRANTIC ATTACKS ON ENGLAND. VILE ABUSE OF QUEEN VICTORIA. A DANGEROUS SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
ANGLO-FRENCH RELATIONS. &nbsp; FRANTIC ATTACKS ON ENGLAND. VILE ABUSE OF QUEEN VICTORIA. &nbsp; A DANGEROUS SITUATION. The correspondent of the 'Argus" writes, under date London, November 24:-The German Emperor's visit to England has driven our neighbours across the Channel almost frantic in their reckless hatred towards this country. No one for a moment sup- poses that there is any desire on the part of the French Government, and certainly not on the part of its able War Minister, General De Galliffet, to undertake an adventure which would involve a conflict with England. But it is not common sense that prevails in France. It was the mob who shouted "A Berlin! A Berlin!" and who were largely instrumental in provok- ing those animosities which led to a war with Germany. To-day it is the &nbsp; mob of Paris-not the people of France -and the trumpery newspapers of that city, assisted by the rivals of the Re- public, and by reckless and mendacious politicians, w...

HOLIDAY IN THE WEST. QUEENSTOWN, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
HOLIDAY IN THIE' WEST. QUEENSTOWN, Monday. The New Year was ushered in with a great noise. During the evening crowds thronged Orr-street, and shortly after 11 p.m. the Queenstown Band appeared on Hunter's balcony and played several tunes; but the big crowd demanded popular airs, the band re- sponding with "Sons of the sea," "Rule Britannia," and "God save the Queen," all of which were sung with great zest, the band and crowd winding up with "Auld Lang Syne" as the whistles blew at 12 o'clock. Then bells and tin kettles and other instrtuments of tor- ture reigned supreme for about an hour, after which things resumed their usual appearance. To-day has been fearfully hot, and a big fire is raging on the east side of the town, and, though at times close to some houses, no danger is apprehended so long as there is no change of wind. Shortly after 10.30 the United Friendly Societies in full regalia headed by the Queenstown Band, marched in procession through the main streets and then to t...

TRIPS BY RAIL AND WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
TRIPS BY RAIL AND WATER. The river excursions yesterday were fully patronised. The steamer Centen- nial, under charter to the Salvation Army, ran, an excursion to George Town. She left the wharf at 9.15 a.m., and had a full complement of excur- sionists on board. The vessel returned to the wharf about 7 o'clock. The Agnes ran an excursion to Beauty Point and George Town. She also had a full number on board, and about 150 persons had to be left behind, as there was not enough room. She re- turned about 6.30 p.m. All the trains that left the station were heavily freighted. A picnic train ran to St. Leonards at 10 a.m., and had a large number of picnickers on board. The picnic train to Denison Gorge was also full with passengers. All other out- ward trains on the Western line were well filled, also those inwards.
LONGFORD RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
LONGFORD RACES. The summer meet of the Longford Racing Club was well attended yester- day, and an enjoyable programme was provided. Mr. William Russell was, as usual,a courteous and obliging secre- tary, Mr. R. C. Field acted as starter, Mr. J. Beveridge judge, Mr. George Drew clerk of the scales, Mr. C. Crack clerk of the course, Mr. J. Owen time- keeper, and Mr. P. G. .Monaghan at- tended to the handicaps. The sport started with the Hurdle, for which out of eleven candidates whose names figured on the card only three faced the barrier. The contest, however, was a fairly interesting one, Clootie proving the victor, his turn of foot serving him well in the final run home. Seven started in the Trial Stakes, Mer- seylea being selected as first favourite. He lost ground, however, at the start, and failed at the finish to get nearer than third. The victor turned up in Algernon, who led from first to last. Alborak was made favourite for the Longford Handicap, and justified con- fidence b...
THE CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
THE CONCERT. In the evening the Albert Hall was well filled both upstairs and down by an audience that greeted with un- bounded enthusiasm a most enjoyable programme of Scottish song. The &nbsp; prima donna of the occasion was Miss Nellie M'Clelland, a Melbourne soprano who possesses an undeniable gift in the rendition of those gems that appeal so strongly to the hearts of "brither Scots." The first number was "Bonnie Prince Charlie," and as an encore "Nae luck." Later she sang "Caller herrin," "I'm ower young to marry," "Oh, whistle and I'll come to ye, my lad," each and all in a winsome style that established her at once as a general favourite. Miss May Smith, another Melbourne vocalist, made a welcome re- appearance here in "The march of the Cameron men" and "Jessie, the flower o' Dumblane," for both of which she was recalled. Miss Jessie Wilkinson was very successful in her items-"My boy Tammy," "Blue bells of Scotland," and "Within a mile." Mr. W. D. Thomson, a Victoria...
