FIRE IN WAYMOUTH STREET. A BLAZE IN WICKER FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 13 March 1901
FIRE IN WAYM0UTH STREET. . A BLAZE IN WICKER FURNITURE. The most troublesome nre of the year so far as the brigade was concerned, and tha most picturesque in the eyes of the public, occurred in \Vaymouth street, near Light square, on luesday nignt. rrom the me tropolitan and the suourban stations the men wkh their appliances were called to the establishment of Air. A. R. Webster, a manufacturer on a large scale of wicker furniture. The firemen arrived upon the scene at 8.38, when llames were shooting through the roof with a vigour which gave every promise of an old-time Adelaide blaze. There are few places rathe city which could be more rapidly reduced to ruins by fire than Mr. Webster's premises. The place was heavily stocked with wicker fur niture and cane ware of the most inflam mable description, which burnt with a ra pidity calculated to spell disaster in a few moments. The glare could be seen for several miles around, and soon Waymouth street and Light square were blocked by t...

CROWDED THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 13 March 1901
CROWDED THEATRES. On Tuesday evening for the first time Adelaide's two theatres were both crowded to the doors, a circumstance which may be regarded as a satisfactory, answer to those who a few months ago said tlie city did not contain, theatregoers enough to fill two places of amusement. Grand opera, though in its fourth week at the Theatre Royal, is drawing the largest houses of the season, and if, when the atmosphere in doors was almost unbearable, and there' were consequently empty seats, Mr. Mus- 1 grove had any doubte whether the best elass of opera music was really appreciated ! in Adelaide, liis experience this week ' should remove them. The theatre was full to overflowing on Tuesday night, when 'Tannhauser' was repeated, and there are already the indications managers like to see that the attendances at the two last performances of a memorable season will be equally satisfactory. But while grand opera has its devotees, the vaudeville star at the Tivoli Theatre attracted a cr...

His Lordship, how ever, was dubious on the point, and ordered the driver to again test a sus picious-looking spot on the Hue, this time with two heavily laden trucks at tached to the locomotive. This was done, with the result that the two trucks were blown 'to pieces by an ex plosion of dynamite. A hundred con cealed Boers then rushed to the spot, only to find the mangled remains of the unfortunate driver. Lord Kit chener returned in his train to Pan 3tation.

SIDELIGHTS ON PONY RACING. BROKEN HILL. March 12. In the small debts court to-duy some side lights were thrown on the pony noes held last week. W. H. Birdseye obtained a Verdict of £3 odd for horsefeed against J. Bray and C. Glen. As the verdict was not satisfied the Sheriff's officer, H. Me Veagh, seized a racing pony known as Battler together with a saddle and a bridle. It was proved in the evidence that Battler had also run under the names of Sovereign and Bigg's Beer. Another horse named Jerry had also run as Bigg's Beer. The ownership of Battler was vague. One man siid he bad owned the horse from a foal; another, that some other man gave him Battler for the loan of two other bones. After complicated evidence, the magistrate allowed tne seizure of the saddle and bridle, but ordered the release of the horse.

THE UNITED STATES. INTERESTING ITEMS BY THE MAIL. ! '?'-*? NEW YORK, February 10. - MB. BRYAN AND THE BBITI8U CON ? ?'» STROTIOK. Mr. W. J. Bryan, the Democratic candi date for .the Presidency, has some curious ideas about the position of the Constitu tional aoverejfii-oi Great Britain. He has just remarked that 'King Edward coukl announce his willingness to join Parliament in extending to the people of Ireland the rights and privileges now enjoyed by his English subjects. Be could express a desire for the termination of the war in South Africa, in which Englishmen are being sacrificed and Boers slaughtered in order to raise the British flag over a few gold mines.' Fancy the consternation which the King^ compliance with this oracle's advice would create in England. The first step, of course, would be tne resignation of all the Ministry, from Lord Salisbury down, who ate responsible to Parliament for the official utterances of the. sovereign. THE DESPISD NEGRO.
