The Protestant Watchtower. The Wardrobe of the " Vicar of Christ." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 20 September 1902

The Protestant Watektower. The Wardrobe of the " Vicar of Christ." The lowlj* Nazarene had no clothes to speak of. His raiment was of the poorest and scantiest material. Not so with Pope Loo XIIL, who as tlie 44 Lord's Anointed" on this ■earth possesses the most costly wardrobe in the world. A great deal has been written and said about the gorgeous and costly wardrobes of the rulers of the earth, particularly those of the monarclis of the East, whose well-known ; love of splendour in dress has frequently led them to the acquisition of garments of almost priceless value. But the wardrobe of the most gorgeous of earthly rulers, fades into absolute insignificance wiien compared with that of Pops Leo XIII., the spiritual father and ruler of the Church of Home; for etiquette compels him to wear different garments on eveiy day of the year, and as nearly all of these are adorned with the most costly of gems, their value is such that no millionaire on earth could hope to possess them were t...

WAVEELEY BRANCH, No. 2. Statistics Worth Rbadix^ by * E.C.'s— Food for Thought. On Thursday, 11th Sept., the usual monthly meeting was held. Notwithstanding tlie rather inclement weather, there was a very good attendance. The subject of the. evening was " State Aid to Denominational Schobls," dealt with by Mr. AV. M, Wadgwick, J.P. Inopening, the lecturer urged nn enthusiastic attitude by nil Protestants against any attempt made to alter the present Public Schools Act, which has "been the outcome, of a large amount of hard work and insight by those who brought it into existence. Any attempt to interfere with the Act must be frustrated by arguments which are overwhelmingly in favour of retention of the\x=req-\ Act, and also at the ballot-box by returning to the next Parliament only trusty Protestants.. Upon the different statistics here given the speaker made out a strong case against State aid to denominational schools. The figures are as follow : — Population of N.S.W. 1,364,590; P...

Publications Received. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 20 September 1902

Publications Received. We bc*g te acknowledge the u Commercial Directory and Tourists' Guide to the Souili Pacilie Islands, 1902-3." It is beautifully printed and illustrated by Messrs. Madgwick and Sons, 35 Quean Victoria Markets, who have turned out an exceedingly neat and artistic specimen of the printer's craft. The lowly views interspersed throughout the volume reflects the greatest credit on the machinist, who evidently is u genius at getting the best effects out of photo, process blocks. The book is full of the most valuable information relating to Tahiti, Fiji, and other enchanting isles of the sea, the charms of which have been so repeatedly sung by Louis Becke, Stevenson and others. The literary portion of the book is excellent, but we certainly do not agree witb the editor's absurd statement in regard to the historical Mutiny of the Bounty, "that it can be safely asserted that it was due to the lengthened stay of Captain Bligh aud the crew of H.M.S. Bounty that the men be...

" Brown Holland." [Specially Written for THE WATCHMAN.] (Continued from last Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 20 September 1902

" Brown Holland." [Specially Written for Tire Watcumax.*] By E.M.H. (Continued from last Issue.) Rachel and the trunk -were met at the journey's eud by Harold Anderson and his sister, "who drove her and her belongings almost into eternity, but, apparently, it was only the belongings that were in any "way cognisant of the fact. Over ruts and stones we flew, amidst much talking and laughter, which quite drowned the rattling of the tin trunk avthe back, and left theui quite oblivious of its movements until, altera tremendous lurch, it rose in the air and fell with a crash in the dusty road. They heard it, and turned, but continued in their flight to the foot of the hill, when someone—Harold Anderson, of course—picked up the missing article, and restored it once again to the hinder part of the vehicle. There were many apologies, and, 1 am thankful to say, more careful driving for the rest of the journey, and the iucident was quite forgotten until Rachel, rulcnscd from her friends belowe...

NEWTOWN BRANCH, NO. 6 [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 20 September 1902

NEWTOWN BRANCH, NO. 6 The monthly meeting of the above branch was held on September 12, in the Congregational schoolroom, and was well attended. Mr. S. King, president, occupied the chair, and, Rev J, Osborn opened with prayer. The   minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. The secretary, Mr. A. W. Jinks, read a petition protesting against the action of Sir Edmund Barton in visiting representatively the Pope of Rome. A letter which recently appeared in the "Watchman" on "Toby Barton's medal," by W. A. Richards, was read by the president, and the sentiments of that letter were folly and justly endorsed by those present. Eight new members were elected. Rev. J. Osborn and others had much to say concerning the cause of Protestant defence, and all contended earnestly that unity of purpose would achieve success. The Secretary returned thanks for election to office, and made reference to Catholic theology and Jesuitical mendacity. A great deal of time was taken...

The Sydney Police Force Utterly Demoralised. STARTLING STATEMENTS. NO. II [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 27 September 1902

The Sydney Police Force :: Utterly Demoralised. 6TABTLING STATEMENTS. NO. XL In last -creek's article on this subject the ♦demoralised condition of the force was little more than hinted at, but much yet remains to 1-i>e said, which, when said, will, we believe, suffice to show that an immediate and search ing investigation is imperative in the public •interest: The inefficiency of the polico gene Tally in tho metropolitan district, and of the plain clothes men particularly, has been abundantly confirmed by the minute of Super inteadeut Larkin, dated '22nd April, 1901; and •every week furnishes fresli proofs of a character in striking contnist to tho optimistic opinions expressed by the Premier when he stated in the House on 2nd instant that we had a most efficient force.

Stories from the Past. xvn. HOLLAND'S STRUGGLE FOE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. (Continued.) • By C.E.S.T. ' {All Right* Reserved.) Siege of Leydejt. •• Our story now takes us to one of tlie rao?t I memorable events of the prolonged struggle ! through which the people of this, unhappy country -were passing. There had already been a siege of the important city of Leyden, but this had been raised by the withdrawal of the Spanish troops to confront the first advance of Count Louis, of Nassau. By an extraordinary oversight upon the p.«rt of the inhabitants there had been no effort to revictual tho citj* when they found themselves freed for a space from their foe. Tho walls, also, had not been repaired, and still showed the breaches which tho Spanish cannon had made. When, therefore, the brief breathing space had passed, and the siege recommenced, the foolish people found themselves in straits they had not anticipated, being short of provisions from almost the first day of tho second siege.

Introduction to the Study of Natural Law. (CONTINUED FROM LAST ISSUE.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 27 September 1902

Introduction to tlie Study of Natural Law. (CONTIXUED PROM LAST ISSUE.) 1C>. The Existence of God.—A careful examination of the available evidence will ! show that there is no lack of proof of the existence of God. .Evolution is merely a process of development controlled by a law, the -existence of which is inferred by man from observation of its effects. 15at there is no absolute jiroof that there really is any such. law. The existence of God is inferred, firstly,, from a previous inforence of the existence of* laws by which the universe is governed. One of these laws is the law of evolution, that .living- creatures shall develop in proportion to their adaptability to their environment. There is no -evidence to show that this law ever enabled or compelled any lower animal to develop into a human being-, and no such change in actual progress is recorded in history*. Yet if such changes had ever occurred in the past, they must be occurring iu the present, because the law of evolut...

Social Problems. CRIME IN OUR CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 27 September 1902

Social Problems. CRIME IN OTTE CITY. Sydney, the " Queen City of the South," upon tho foreshores, of the finest liarbour in the world, is famous for its unique position amid natural surroundings of unsurpassiiig i beauty. Nature has, indeed, been lavish in her gifts to Sydney. Deep water, safe anchor\x=req-\ ago for tho greatest liners afloat, in numerous bays, bounded by wooded and green hills dotted over with palatial residences, pleasure resorts with countless varieties of flora, ferns and trees, where the weary citizens can recruit themselves after the tension of commercial life. These natural advantages are enjoyed and appreciated by the great majority of our citizens, although it seems that a section of the community, those criminally inclined, do not appedr to benefit by their soul-inspiring surroundings. Acts of violence of late have startled the city. If such things continue to happen our city will become as notorious, for her crime, as slie is famous for her splendid posit...
