Another Snake Yarn. THE UNEMPLOYED PROBLEM SOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 4 October 1902
Another Snake Yarn. THE UNEMPLOYED PEOBLEM SOLVED. | (By Thibcne.; On Sunday-evening la6t at St. Benedict's the Statue of St. Anthony was blessed by Archbishop Kelly. The preacher for the occasion was Father Kennedy, a veritable Boanerges. For forty-fivo minutes he held has audience spell-bound. Reasons, satisfactory to the preacher at any rate, -were advanced why the churches should be adorned with statues and 'paintings of the Saints. A6 courtiers were the attendants on the King, so the Saints, being Christ's courtiers, were attendants on Him who was always present in Catholic Churehes. "Why," the preacher asked in stentorian tones, "was it impossible for Catholics to become Protestants?" "Because," he answered, " They have no Christ in their Churches." The merits of " Sweet St. Authony," and the benefits that would accrue to the parish by his advent, were forcibly pointed out. The poor will not only bo supplied with broad, but with clothes, and the unemployed will get work. They ...
MOCK LIBERALISM IN HIGH PLACES. INSULT OFFERED TO THE FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 4 October 1902
MOCK LIBERALISM IN HIGH PLACES. INSULT OFFERED TO THE FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. is -with deep regret, and not a little indignation, we have to record the treatment meted out by Sir John See to the United Friendly Societies - of this State. Some time ago it was decided that owing to the large increase of membership, and the enormous amount of funds ^entrusted to them, it was necessary that a central dispensary and Medical Institute, should be erected. The accumulated funds of these societies amount to £050,000, there being 75,000 members, while the estimated value of the'medical aid and medicine distributed has totalled £80,000. In addition to this between £60,000 and £70,000 has been paid away in benefits, and £16,000 in funeral allowances. It will be seen from these figures that the Friendly Societies in this city are performing grand worlr, and have merited the confidence of the people. The proposed Dispensary is to be erected in Macquarie-street South, upon land belonging to the Societ...

"Wlion tlio King was stricken down, wlien all the world was listening witli bated breath for intelligence regarding his progress, the " Sligo Star," a little weekly, started and financed by Roman Catholio priests, came out | with the following blasphemous and disloyal leader:— " King Edward VH of England lies at death's door. The man who levelled at the Roman Catholic Religion the most blackguardly insult that the diabolical ingenuity of bigotry could devise lias been strickeu down at the very moment when his impending Coronation was the exultant theme of minions of his subjects. Was ever the power of the Hand of God more strikingly manifested in human affairs? The tinsel glory has been washed away as if by magic, and the poor, shuddering creature, who but yesterday was in the zenith of liis power, is now almost face to face with that God whom he has so flagrantly in...

"Stuffing" the Public Service. A REPLY TO THE "CATHOLIC PRESS." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 4 October 1902
Stuffing-" tlie Public Service. A Eeply to tiie " Catholic PnEss." Tlio " Catholic Press," of September 27, publishes a list of prominent positions held in the Public Service by officials who ore Protestants. Wo freely grant that the heads of most of the departments are Protestants. Their intellectual ability and efficiency hare placed them there. This is where Roman Catholics suffer. Through the inferior education which they receivo at their own schools; they are neither trained nor qualified to compete with Protestants who have passed through our Public and High Schools. It is so the world over. Roman Catholic laymen should read Mr. McCarthy's book (himself an B.C.) "Five Years in Ireland," and they will then understand why so few of their number occupy prominent positions. In the lower departments of the Public Service, however, where no such intellectual test is demanded or required, we find that Homan Catholics are employed out of all proportion to their number in tho community...
THE Watchman CIRCULATION 13,500. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1902. THE NECESSITY FOR CONVENT INSPECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 4 October 1902
CIRCULATION 13,500. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1902. THE NECESSITY FOE CONVENT INSPECTION. The Bill which the Government proposes to introduce, permitting voting through the medium of the post office, will have to he considerably altered hefore it can be accepted by Protestants. It is stated to be intended as a measure of relief to our newly-enfranchised women voters, who, however, have no reason to be especially grateful. A little examination into its provisions proves that it is far more likely to be appreciated and used by the inmates of Convents, than by Protestant women. It must be remembered that in this State there is a semi-Roman Catholic Ministry" in office, and a strongly-organised Roman Catholic vote in each of the towns, and that means are being employed to facilitate the registration of eveiy vote, male or female, which can be procured. In this way the inmates of Convents, and other religious houses, are receiving special legislation, so that the power they wield shall not be...

The Folly of Jesuitism. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 4 October 1902
The Eolly of Jesuitism. The seeming advancement of Popery in Protestant communities is solely due to the correctness of her calculations on the forces of human folly aud corruption. Keen observers and critics of Protestant England emphatically declare that the seed of decay has germinated, and threatens to grow into such fruition that ere long Ichabod will be inscribed on her portals. If this be a true proplieey with respect to the mother land, how far does it apply to the British race in the aggregate ? The brilliant, but subtle Newman, and the subtle, but impetuous Manning, both of the highest intellectual power, saw dimly that unity of sentiment is the mainstay of power. How those brilliant intellects were perverted to Romanism, vainly searching for that ideal is now a matter of history. What led-such men to turn? Honest, but ignorant Romanists, might think it "was from, con* viction, and subtle Jesuits, who know better, will insist for their own ends on the same. Protestants, ho...
THE POLICE SERVICE. (TO THE EDITOR OF "THE WATCHMAN.") [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 4 October 1902
THE POLICE SEKV1CE. (to the editok of " The Watciijiax.") oil',—I notice in the issue of the watchman dated 2Uth lost. &u article on the Sydney Police Force. Well, sir, some of your arguments may be correct, but in my mind you have not got the key note. We require better men in the Police Service, theie is but little doubt, but how are we going to procure thein. There is only one way to get over the difficulty; that is to give better wages, and you will get better men. .How can we expect parents to spend large sums of money educating their sons, and then send them to join the Police Service for a paltry eeven or eight shilliugs per day. The Police Force-is next door to being in gaol; they have to give up Saturdays, Sundays, and every public holiday, and do as much overtime as the department can possibly heap ou theui, Mhich makes the position a very uuenviable one. A few years back the police wage was raised something like a shilling per day, and it had a considerable effect...

The Anglican Synod and St. Patrick's Day. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 4 October 1902
The Anglican Synod and St. Patrick's Day. It is a matter of entire satisfaction to not® that whatever may be the views of some few individual members of the Church of England Synod of the Sydney Diocese, the Synod itself is distinctly Protestant, and is not afraid to say so. Hence the following resolution re St. Patrick's Day, was triumphantly carried a few days ago:— At the recent session of the Anglican Synod Mr. D. H.Chisholm moved,—"That this synod strongly protect* against the action of tho Government of this State proclaiming St. Patrick's Day as a public holiday, and that in the opinion of this synod it is inadvisable that St. Patrick's Bay should in the future be set apart as a public holiday. That His Grace tho Archbishop be respectfully requested to convey this resolution to tho State Premier." The Rev. S. S. Tovey, B.A., submitted this was an extraordinary action on the part of the Government, and lie considered that the synod ought to pass the motion as a protest. The mo...

He said that when Dr. Kelly deprecated, sectarianism he seemed to forget that it was Protestants who had been attacked in tlie first place. While he was a ma...

The Cliairmau outlined the objects of the gathering, and then called upon the Rev. X)r. W. M. Dill Macky to address the assemblage. The Rev.
