"At the Sign of the Red Pale." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 February 1902

•' At the Sign of the Red Pale," There are certain books wliich serve to indicate where a man stands in the republic of readers. To take a notable illustration, when a man says he is fond of Shakespeare you know little of his literary habitat, but if in addition he loves Wordsworth you know a thousand things about him. and can take him into the hosom of your family without misgiving. Such a discrim inating book is Kenneth Grahame's "The Golden Age " which will only be read by those who have been children and still hope to be.   Mr. Grahame lias the Tare faculty of Reeing life from the child's point of view. The young philosopher in the book cannot understand the grown-ups who having unlimited authority make such poor uso of their opportunities. "They might dabble in the pond all day, hunt the chickens, climb trees in the most uncom promising Sunday clothes; they were free to issue forth and buy gunpowder in the full eye of the sun, free to fire cannons and explode mines...

THE HON. E. W. O'S[?]LLIVAN AND FATHER BUNBURY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902

THE HON. E. W. O'Sl TjLIVAN AND FATHER BUNBURY. The Hon. E. "W. O'Sullivan is to be congrat ulated upon the Bpeech which he made at the meeting of the Hibernian Society, and he proved to Father Bunbury that there is at least one public man who has an independent opinion to which he is not afraid to give expression, even in the presence of the agent of a "power outside our own shores." Father Bunbury seemed to forget his position in this respect when he said: "We should say that we will not bow ourselves to any authority or any power outside our own'shores, nor submit to any foreign dictation no matter from what quarter it may coine." The manly refutation and repudiation of this statement by the Hon. the Minister for WorkB will be endorsed by all loyal subjects of the Empire and a few more utterances of the same character from the loyal Irishmen of Australia (aud there are a few who are not thus included) would at the present juncture, serve our young Australian nation and the Empire...

DISOKDEKLY HOUSES IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902

DISOKDEKLY HOUSES IN SYDNEY. j A correspondent writes:— In tlie English "Times" of October 6th, 1851, the Earl of Shaftesbury .wrote the follow ing:—4'They might depend upon it, that if they sent man, woman, or cliild to Sydney, it would be its certain destruction. It was the vilest and most corrupt place on the face of tlie earth, where all the vices of our great cities were gathered into one and where there was a very large population of the .worst character, and the most degraded practices." Histoiy repeats itself and the news of last week tends to support this statement made some fifty years ago. Touching upon oue side of the subject, it is common knowlege, that Sydney is at present literally honeycombed with disorderly houses. It becomes the duty of every right minded person to cause 6uch places to be suppressed, because of its effect in drawing together the the debauched and dissolute, and in corrupting the .public morals, especially those, of the younger portion of the commun...

A TAINTED EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902

A TAINTED EDUCATION. In a recent iBsuoof the " Catholic Press " there is a'long article, in tlie form of a letter, headed VTho Catholic (meaning, of course, the Ro man ; Catholic) Position on Education," in : which the writer wishes to make it.appear that j what Boman Catholicism is seeking with regard I to the subsidising of her schools, is only n fair ' thing which might commend itself to all right thinking people. His argument in a nutshell is this--" Wo Catholics (Boman Catholics) | savo the State through our denom inational schools some £155,000 a year, and therefore we should be paid back this money in the shape of a subsidy." But the question is,—Why does the Soman Catholic Church erect these schools and incur this outlay ? Does she do bo because the State compels it? No, quite the contrary—she does so in opposition to the State, which, by withdrawing all subsidies from denominational schools and establisliing the present Public School system, plainly de clared its disapprova...

ATHLETICISM V. NATIONALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902

ATHLETICISM V. NATIONALISM. Cricket, football, physical development, bodily exercise—liave some profit, and may well be cared for. No one would wish to see Australia bereft of all interest in manly'sport and recreation. There is a healthy side to the interest which is taken in an international cricket match. It is one. of the games which has been largely kept out of tho hands of the gamblers, and on this account it is a matter of satisfaction that our record crowd is not at Kandwick, but at the Cricket Ground. Speak ing generally, this is the sport of manly men, and is as untainted as any such sport can he. Interest in games which help to develop the muscle is perfectly legitimate so long asjit can be kept free from the debasing influence of the gambler. If anything, such interest'is more pronounced hero than in'the home land. Kip ling's " men who can ride and shoot" have come from the land where the willow is skil fully handled, and the footballer is not un known, though he may not...

THE Watchman [?] [?] [?] [?] SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1902. ME. KIPLING'S CALL TO THE ISLANDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902

SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1902. ME. KIPLING'S CALL TO THE ISLANDERS. Hudyaud Kipling published some verses at the beginning of the war in Africa -which made him the most talked-of roan in the Empire. The verses had no special merit of their own, save the sovereign merit of timeliness, "but they caught the public ear at the very moment "when the public ear was best attuned for them; and although their author has since confessed that lie is just a little ashamed of them as verses, lie has the satisfaction of knowing that they helped the patriotic fund as no others could have done, and thousands of widows and orphans have reason to rejoice because of the oft-reiterated demand to " pay, pay, pay." Toward the close of the war Kipling has pub lished in the Timet another set of verses, and these have made him perhaps the best abused man in the Empire. Such are the changes of fortune that come to the favourites of the fickle crowd! Kipling's appeal to the Islanders is a passionate outburst of nati...

Our Young- Men. " Spartan. [All young men are cordially invited to con tribute items of interest to this column.

Ix the four test matches already decided, it will l)e generally admitted that the cricket has not-come up to the standard of 1897-98. The Kangarooland cricket, without question, lias been inferior io that of four years ago, not that there is any serious or genuine falling off in Australian play, but that the crack players and those in the best form have not always been selected. It is a popular cry at times that we are running out of our supply of first-class cricketers, and that shortly we will hare no stars of the first magnitude to carry on the glorious traditions of Australia* But it is gratifying to record that some of the most brilliant work in the recent matches was done by young cricketers, whose claims to be in cluded in the contests were at first dubiou...

II.—THE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902

n.—THE MIND. Senator Zeal, jealous possibly of the vogue of the Caledonian and Hibernian Societies has been trying to enlist the sympathies of English* born colonials in a scheme to form a St. George's Society. But apparently Englishmen are satisfied to be constituent units of the pre dominant partner, and do not see the neea of fanning their local patriotism to keep it alive. At all events, after sending out 50U circulars with stamped envelopes, Senator Zeal only found 60 gentlemen favourable to the scheme. A most interesting debate took place last Thursday night week at the School of Arts Club, when the discussion on Mr. T. J. Koken's motion—" That, at the termination of the present war, an International Peace Con fei'ence should be held with a view of arranging the settlement of all future international dis putes by arbitration of nations"—was con tinued. The motion was carried. The Hunter-Baillie Literary and Debating Society intend holding a social evening in April. Acting on l...

The "Boom" in Motor Cars. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902

The Boom " in Motor Cars. \ The present attitude of the public towards the advent of the motor car furnish excellent study for the cynical philosopher. The introduction of the steam-engine, particularly, as a locomo tive, was met with tierce and strenuous oppo-i tion by all classes of the community. The crowd o* labor saving .machines, "of which the steam-engine was the forerunner, made their way slowly against the stubborn side of popular feeling. The adaptation of electricity to i;ght ing, heating, and motive purposes lias not yet made a complete victory over the prejudiced of the public and every innovation in any way connected with these has still to convince people, with proof upon proof, that it is better than what they have been accustome use. About,a hundred years ago the motor car was fairly driven off British highways by the anger of an indignant public. The present state of affairs present a charm ing contrast. The people as a whole arc watching the developing of the self...
