Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 14 April 1900

Things in General. Ex-Premier Reid is by no means satisfied with the appointment of Actuary Yarwood tp the financial commission which has been ap pointed to inquire into the bona fides of his national balance-sheets — Mr. Yarwood being an acknow ledged political foe and a man who has already published his opinions with regard to the Eeid finances. He has even less reason to be sati - fied with Premier Lyne's apparent attempt to prejudice the inquiry, limit its scope, and bull-doze its members by furnishing a list of questions to which ha expects categorical reply. Mr. Lyne'a seeming object is to drag into Mr. Reid's accounts the Dibbs' deficit and the Martin Place, Centennial Park suspense account amounts — matters which were disentangled from the current accounts on 1st July, 1895, when the new cash system came into vogue which per mits each year's income and ex penditure to be examined free from --.ha obligations or accruements of prior years. This course of inter ference with the...

Wharf Resumption. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 14 April 1900

Wharf Resumption. i As far back as 1876, Mr. John Young proposed a scheme for the resumption of all the water front ages from Circular Quay to the head of Darling Harbour at a cost of £2,250,000. This included the cost of erecting a stone sea-wall right round and the formation of wharves, a road, and railway. He then es timated that £1.600,000 would be H J| immediately realised by the sale of 8j|| warehouse and shipping-office front WM ages to the wharves, road, and M railway. In addition to this, it was iL||| estimated that a further reduction hljl of the original cost would take place by charging to the railway account £475,000 of the expenditure — a { / ii very small sum for a city railway In'! an^ a dividend-returning asset. In 1 ^ IfJ this way, the whole cost of this im~ portant improvement might be put \\\ down at £576,000 or somewhat less I j than the cost of an unimportant i r| oountry railway or eventually that 1| of the despatch of our troops to ifj| , South Africa.

Twice-Told Tales. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 April 1900

Twice-Told Tales. A man was seen leaving his model dwelling, while from the window above his wife poured after him ceaseless volleys of what is politely known as 1 langwidge.' But in the enthusiasm of her eloquence she leaned out too far and fell on the pavement. A horrified spectator hurried after the husband with the news. Ashe was breaking it, the man, with face full of suppressed feeling, mur mured, . ' Don't make me laugh ; I've got a cracked lip,' — Clipper. Said Admiral Dewey : — My wife knew the American people better than I did. She only con sented to the house they gave me being settled on her after an arrangement had been effected whereDy not only the house, which was the gift to mo from the American people, but her entire personal fortune, which, as you are aware, is considerable, was ulti mately to go to my son George. Thus he had absolutely nothing to lose bv mv conveying the house to - my wife, but on the contrary, was a great gainer thereby. I do not - intend to arra...

Agricultural Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 April 1900

Agricultural Show. The annual Metropolitan Show will shortly eventuate, And from the country crowds are sure to go— For the list of attractions are great. Horses and cattle, dogs and sheep, and machines of the latest kind, Are matters affording interest deep to the agricultural mind. The City of t*ydney is made quite gay, by the country folk we see, 'Who throng the thoroughfares night and day in a spirit of joyful glee. A timely warning we give to all who | mean to go down this year, | Gto to the place where the charge is small, a place to the station near, Where the liquors and meals are extra good, and the bedrooms good as well. That place it is easily understood is the Crystal Palace Hotel. The popular house of a popular host, who the public taste j ust hits, The best hotel the city can boast— the the home of the Festive Fitz.

Political Patter. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 April 1900

Political Patter. | W. A. Holman marries Ada Kidgell, editor of the Co-operator . That purse came in good time. The King of the Belgians, Leopold II., has presented to the nation the palaces at Laclien, Ostend, and Clergnon. A London syndicate wants to take over the Adelaide trams and electrify them. Surely the Radicals over there won't stand the steal ! The private syndicate sometimes puts in very bad and cheap work. Look at the Hobart trams — a laugh ing-stock to all visitors ! In view of the Federal election, the Murray Smith-Langton school of Victorian freetraders has coa lesced with the Max Hirsch crowd on the Sydney Conference platform's basis.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 April 1900

The slow-witted Express— Dis- ? tress would be a more truly des criptive term — charges us with, being chiefly made up of quotations. This is as false as anything could well be. Page for page and line for line there is as much original matter in the Elector as in any paper of its size published in all Australia, and in proportion, it is as original as any other paper — no matter what its size. The Distress began by accusing us of having scissored nine Dareeranhs on our front page rf March 24th — we plead guilty to seven ; it then stated that the next two pages, 2 and 3, were ' spotted ' with clipped para graphs — now, as a matter of cold and easily proven fact, page 2 con tained one quoted paragraph — from tho Rylestone Express — and a four line quotation from John Burns' war speech, and page 3 contained absolutely no clipped pars of any kind ; the Distress then asserted that pages 4 and 5 wore ' plastered' with clipped paragraphs — now page 4 had 4 quoted pars and page 5 had 3 ; th...

Gore and Glory. They make bayonets at Pretoria now— chiefly for the foreign legion. Oa account of an epidemic break ing out aboard ship, 1500 Boers were landed at Simon's Bay. A number of Boors, about 30, escaped from Simon's Bay and are no doubt again under arms.

Corn Cobs. Suggestive lines from Teiiewtii's oontents' board: — 'Woe! Woe! To the City ! If I Were Mayor !' What unaccountable veracity ! W. T. Stead has tardily dis covered that the miners of West Australia are worse treated elec torally by Forrest than were those of Johannesburg by Kruger. One is glad that Emily Soldene soon returns to the Evening News. The stuff that goes in under Van dorian's name is usually unspeak ably wicked.

THE BOER'S SWAN SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 April 1900

THE BOER'S SWAN SONG. Lay my rifle here beside me, set my Bible on my breast, For a moment let the wailing bugle cease ; As the century is closing I am going to my rest ; Lord, lettest thou thy servant go in peace. But loud through all the bugles rings a cadence in my ear, And on the winds my hopes of peace are stowed ; Those winds that waft the voices that already I can hear — Of the rooi-baatje singing on the road. Yes, tho red-coats are returning ; I can hear the steady tramp, After twenty years of waiting, lulled to sleep, Since rank and file at Potchefstroom we hemmed them in their camp. And cut them up at Bronkorspruit like sheep. They shelled us at Ingogo, but we galloped into range, And we shot the British gunners where they showed. I guessed they would return to us —I knew the chance must change — Hark! Tho rooi-baatje singing j on the road ! But now from snow-swept Canada, from India's torrid plains. From lone Australian outpost, ' hither led ; Obeying their commando as th...
