The Watchtower. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
The. Watchtower. The Anti-War League— One cannot but admire the courage of Pro fessor Wood, Mr. W. B. Melville, 3Ir. 1). K. Stevens, and a few other gentlemen who with them have formed themselves into au anti-wiir league. Professor "Wood certainly occupies a position which enables him to speak with'some degree of authority, and whatever may be the subject which engages his attention lief will always be beard with respect. As regards Iris pro-Boer proclivities he stands almost alone: tlie only uiau of any standiug who supports Him iu this state is Mi*. Holman, the member for Grenfell, who has distinguished himself "by his rather violeut utterances in the cau&§ »>f " Brother Boer." Even with such acompaiiiui!, Professor Wood must feel just a trifle lonely, and one does not wonder at all that he regretted the absence of John Burns, " the Labor State man,'* as lie describes him wheu, a fev^fd;iY ago, he attended the labour congrc??. If only that gentle uian, with ."Mr.igteail...

Edward David Madgwick over his grave in the Church of England portion of the Waverlev Cemeten*, was unveiled by Mr. John Wheeler, R.W.Gr.M., of the Loyal Orange Institution, with which body the deceased gentleman was intimately connected.

"THE WATCHMAN"—THE ORGAN OF THE A.P.D.A.— [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
"THE WATCHMAN"—THE ORGAN OF THE A.P.D.A.— Ix this the first issue of our paper it is ap propriate, if not imperative, to state some of the reasons which have led to its establishment. It is not because there is a lack of su"h litera ture, for of papers of all sorts, sizes, shapes aud colors issued in Sydney, there certainly is no lack. Wo have dailies, weeklies, monthlies, Church papers, commercial papers, agricultural papers, parochial magazines, Tit-bits, Scraps, etc., etc., until it would seem that of making papers, as was said by the wise mau of book, " there is no ond." Wo are aware of all this, and yet wo believe amongst all this multifarious literature there is room for The Watchman, and there is need of The Watchman. The need of such a paper as The Watchman is intended to be, has long been felt, and many a time and oft it has been proposed to start such a popnr, but these proposals have always melted into thin air. Some six months ago, however a new Association originated en...

The Making of Jim Blake, [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
The Making of Jim Blake, By GUY BOOTHBY, Autiiou of " Dn. Nikola," etc. "When Jaiues Blake, only son of Sir Peregrine Blake of Todrope Hall, said good-bye to re spectability and.England, which terms in his own mind he considered synonymous, lie did so fully convinced that when he returned it would be as a millionaire, and an exceedingly saga cious man. He was going to show the colonists, lie said, what could be done by a person who had his head screwed on the wright way." Had he considered for a moment, and pondered the histories of the men who had made their for tunes in the great land of which he was soon to be a citizen, he would in all probability haYe discovered that the majority of them had started with less advantages than himself. " That," he would have said, " was their look out, not liis. It was * so much the better for him." . He was a gentleman, he told himself, and if illiterate men could succeed, was it likely he should fail? You mustn't imagine from this that there wa...
FREE POSTAGE OF NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
FREE POSTAGE OF NEWSPAPERS. It would bo premature to attemjit giving- an opinion ns to what benefit New South Wales lias derived from Federation. But there are continually cropping up little incidents and ox penencos wliiuh all point to the fact that Now South "Wales Wales has sacrificed much of the freedom, and many of tlio privileges, wliich slip formerly enjoyed, in order to assist.in conferring the great boon of unification on the other States of the Commonwealth. What her reward shall be is likely to remain a mystery for a consider able time to come. Over twelve months have passed since the great function, with all its glittering pageantry, which was to herald the approach of 2 new era of prosperity for us, dazzled our eyes, and, childlike, we were greatly rejoiced therewith. Since that fateful day much lias transpired that would make us ponder deeply over the crookedness of our politicians and the wily ways of our Victorian neighbours. Truly the paramount position which the mo...

London News and Notes. [Compiled specially for The Watchman.] MISS AMY CASTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
London News and Notes. [Compiled specially for Ihe Watchman.'] MISS AMY CASTLES. This young Australian singing, wliose debut in London at the St. Jame's Hall recently, brought together a large and fashionable audience, is a native of Melbourne, where she first saw the light some nineteen years ago. Although as a child she had sung at many juvenile functions, and taken part in various competitions, it was not till March 1899; that she came prominently before the public, when she attracted the attention of Lady Brassey bo her singing at an amateur concert. After that her reputation grew apace, and at her farewell performance at Melbourne over six teen thousand persons paid for admission. Since then, Miss Castles lias been studying in Paris, and though she modestly claims to be only a young siudent, she acquitted herself most creditably at St James's Hall, where she was assisted by Miss Ada Crossley and other friends. Her voice is a soprano of wide range and considerable power, the upp...

"A Moorland Parish." [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
"A Moorland Parish." BY TREMAYNE DUNSTAN. [all bights reserved.] In the North-west comer of Cornwall, just j where the lower spurs of the Dartmoor range | slope down toward the sea, is a moorland parish j which, with the group of hamlets to which St. j Morwena has given her name, forms the border- j land between Cornwall and Devon, at that point where only a geographical line separates the two countries. On the western side the great Atlantic surges and swells, an unbroken sweep of ocean, save for the tiny Isle of Lundy in the offing, and perchance, on some clear summer morning, you may catch a glimpse of the dis tant coast of Wales far away in faintest blue. On the eastern side are the moors where rise the Tamar, the Tor, and the Torridge — moors which in summer are fragrant and ablaze with gorse and heather, and wliicli in winter are so indoscribably dreary that one cannot wonder j ♦hat the imagination of the simple folk has: peopled them with sprites and ghosts and pixies. If you...

GOSPEL RIOTS AT ATHENS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902
GOSPEL RIOTS AT ATHENS. Intelligence of a most critical nature has during the past few days reached us from the Grecian capital. The political outlook in Greece' has not of late heen very reassuring, and the person who suggested a new and official trans lation of the old Greek Testament into modern Greek must have been unaware of the teneion prevalent in AthenB. Scarcely had the sugges tion gone forth than the students were in arms. There are nearly three thousand of them, and though something under a hundred are regis tered as students of theology, all have joined in defence of the ancient version. They assembled a great meeting around the few standing columns of the great temple of Olympian Zeus. There they met amidst the excitement of an Athenian crowd to defend the debased Greek of the Christian books from conversion into the more debased Greek which they were all speaking. The proceedings wore not quite unanimous, for nearly forty killed and wounded were loft in the precincts; ...
