LATE SPORTING. VICTORIAN RACING. GRAND NATIONAL MEETING COLONEL SHILINSKI WINS THE HURDLE RACE. A GRAND STRUGGLE. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

LATE SPORTING. VICTORIAN RACING. GRAND NATIONAL MEETING COLONEL SHILINSKI WINS THE HURDLE RACE. A GRAND STRUGGLE. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. The cold and showery weather affected the attendance of the opening day of the V.A.T.C. Grand National meeting, though   the conditions improved as the afternoon advanced. In the opening event, the Trial Stakes, Mavis, the second favorite, won with the greatest ease, but in the Moondah Plate a rank outsider in the veteran Bluecap was too good for the favorite. Mr. Albert Miller started Ore in both races, and each   time he was placed. Then Mr. Miller   went one better with first and third in the Grand National Hurdle Race. Money came so steadily for Colonel Shilinski that he displaced Lowland Chief from thc position of favorite, and Rawdon dropped back to 8 to 1. The Scout was on the same mark, and Scutum, carrying the confidence of Walter Hickenbotham, had friends at 9 and 10 to 1. There was a little money for ...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

Final payments for the Caulfield National Steeple are on Tuesday.   The jockeys who were not granted licenses on Monday are to come before the W.A.T.C. Committee to-morrow evening. It is said that some of the applicants will get more than they expected.   With pulling and foul riding rampant on our racecourses it is high time that the   W.A.T.C. realised what is expected from them, and acted accordingly. If the suburban and goldfields clubs fail in their duty—and they have doone so most signally—those who have the welfare of the sport at heart naturally expect the govern-   ing body, armed as they are with large powers, to display some backbone, and   punish the guilty. All sorts of what are called reactionary measures have been tried without success in   the Eastern States. The late James White,     not long before he died, ventured the opinion that it was impossible to stop dish...

BOXING. THE WORLD'S CHAMPIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

BOXING.   THE WORLD'S CHAMPIONSHIP. The much-talked-of battle for the world's championship, between Bob Fitzsimmons and Jim Jeffries, has been brought off at last, and the cablegrams inform us that "Fitz" has gone down again before the giant-like Jeffries. The match was for a big purse and a side wager of 2,500 dollars, and the meeting place was the National Club, 'Frisco. Though no particulars are yet to hand, it may be assumed that the battle was exciting while it lasted, and that "Fitz" put up a good fight though beaten at the end of eight rounds. Fitzsimmons held the opinion that he was "doped" when Jeffries defeated him on the first occasion,   and he and his manager fell out over it. Thongh not anxious to eater the ring again, "Fitz" firmly believed that he could avenge his defeat, and he went through a Severe Course of Training and signed articles in Hay last to meet his old foe. Jeffries, who is said to have im- proved in cleverness, was confident o...

FOOTBALL. THE AUSTRALIAN GAME [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

FOOTBALL.     THE AUSTRALIAN GAME.       After all it does not look as though we are to have a visit from the South Austra- lian footballer. After inviting the 'tother side association to send terms, which were found to be in accord with local notions, the W.A.F.A does not seem to like the idea of going sponsors.       To say the least of it, the South Austra-   lians appear to have safe-guarded them- selves in asking for £500 and half the gates for the four matches. £500 is a handy sum to own and a nasty bit to lose, and though there are few more enthusiastic supporters of the game than the SUNDAY TIMES, it appears to us that the association is wise in safe-guarding itself by using every caution.     Mr. Fisher's proposal that all of the   senior coastal goldfields clubs should con- tribute £12 each towards the South Austra- lia...

PERSECUTED PROSPECTORS. MINIPULATING THE MURCHISON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

PERSECUTED   PROSPECTORS.   MANIPULATING THE MUR- CHISON. The Premier (Mr. James) in the course of his recent speech expressed surprise that fewer leases are now held on the Goldfields than formerly. That such is actually the case is, unfortu- nately, only too true; but if Mr.   James would incur the trouble of making inquiries amonst the lease- holders and the miners as to the true cause of this retrograde state of affairs, he would have little cause for surprise. He would find that the varions fields—far from having petered out—are just as promising to-day as ever they were, but that the root of the whole trouble was the in- competent administration of the Mines Department, ignorant goldfields war- dens, and some of the ridiculous pro- visions of our wretched Mining Act.   Instead of every possible means being adopted of encouraging the pioneers   who have opened up the country, every available obstacle is thrown in ...

CRICKET. The Australian Eleven. ENGLISH FIXTURES. AUGUST. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

The Australian Eleven       ENGLISH FIXTURES   AUGUST.   7. Hampshire, at Southhampton.   11. Fifth Test, at Kensington Oval. 14. Marylebone, at Lord's. 18. Gloucestershire, at Cheltenham. 21. Kent, at Canterbury. 25. Middlesex, at Lord's.     28. Lancashire, at Liverpool.     The fourth test match, concluded yester-   day week, was a great game, and one which   will live long in the memory of cricket en-   thusiasts. Australia won by three runs,     but the result was in doubt many a time. Australia's second innings closed for 86. which left England with 124 to get to win. This task proved beyond the home team,   and with 121 showing on the board the last man was out. With no wickets for 36 the Englishmen looked in a winning position, but the tide set in favor of the colonials ...

The Sunday Times SUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 19[?]2. MORAL BLIGHT OF THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

SUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 1902. MORAL BLIGHT OF THE WEST. It will some day be for social phil- sophers, when the history of Westralia is fully written, to solve the problem how it came about that from the highest to the lowest in the land the   sense of justice seemed absolutely wanting at the commencement of the twentieth century. We cannot alto- gether attribute the fact—which must     be evident to all observers—that we care not who sins, nor what the sin, so long as the favored few grow rich thereby, to what Lord Beauchamp so ungraciously and uncharitably terms   "birthstains." No doubt but that a certain element from the old regime has contributed a perceptible callous- ness in moral distinctions, and the brutality of the old convict days has   not been entirely eliminated. But we scarcely consider this sufficient to ac- count for all the astounding apathy to the social, commercial and political offences which flourish he...

HOITY HACKET. IOHANNEM JUBILANT. A HUMBUG HONOR-HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

HOITY HACKET.   IOHANNEM JUBILANT. A HUMBUG HONOR-HUNTER. The great John Winthrop Hackett, who so persistently studied French that he forgot to pay for his lessons, preparatory to his trip to the motherland for a title, and who so carefully guarded a talisman album in-     tended as an "Open Sesame" to Royalty that he lost it among the wild animals of the Zoo, has not altogether been disappointed with his hunt for honors abroad. True he was sorely grieved at His Majesty's illness, which deprived him of figuring large at the   head of a procession of Australians, which might entitle him to live in the Royal   memory, if not in humorous history; but   his chief grief was to find that he had been altogether forgotten in the distribution of Coronation honors. He thereupon resolved to honor England no more with his presence, though he had gone "home" ostensibly for the sole purpose of witnessing   ...

VERSE—AND WORSE "To che[?]t thee of a sigh, Or charm thee to a tear." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902

VERSE—AND WORSE "To cheat thee of a sigh, Or charm thee to a tear." —MOORE.   The teacher in a local State school was     giving what is known as a "domestic" lesson. After receiving some hair-raising answers to her questions concerning "widow, "bachelor," "widower," "bride," etc., etc., she came to another stage of the   lesson. "What do you call a child," she asked, "whose parents are dead ? "I   know," responded a precocious boy of seven   eagerly. "Well," said the teacher interro- gatively. "Please teacher," panted the   pupil, "it's a urchin !" The widow of a one-time well-known Groper farmer down in the South West, was asked by a Government land official to give the valuation of her estate, which was   likely to be resumed by the State for railway purposes. The following is a verbatim ex cerpt from her letter of claim :—"i have in   fammily 4 chilldren, 2 piggs, an one hoarse, an 3 stepc...
