Plaguey Pars. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 April 1900

Plaguey Pars. The record — Two Chinese cases, two deaths. About 300 of the quarantined males were employed in tho Wex ford-street area. The other day a Chinese baby arrived in the quarantined home of one Coy — christoned Quarantine Bacillus. In the Bathurst-Liverpool-streets area aboutj 400 of the local resi dents were engaged in cleaning away the filth. Twopence per head is now paid for rats alive or dead. It ought to be a better game than even rabbit trapping but isn't. It looks as if Andrew Mills of Leichhardt was killed by the Health officers on his way to the Quarantine station. In spite of the plague, Sydney had six first: class theatres going to good biz at Easter while Melbourne could only open four. A married couple from the coun try were compelled to spend their honeymoon at the Quarantine Station. A nice and retired spot — none better. Visitors from Sydney have to report themselves daily for twelve days in Victoria. Here the period of inspection has been reduced to five d...

Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 April 1900

Things in General. Thus the Worker, Sydney : — ' There was general disappointment in Labor circles when it was found that the Unemployed Com mission did not contain the name of Mr. George Black. Not only would the presence of the ex-LaW member have materially strength ened the Board, but it would have given confidence to Laborists that its real object — the solution of the unemployed difficulty — would be undertaken in an effective way.' No doubt if ' Labor Circles ' had been at all anxious to see Mr. * Black made a member of the Unemployed Commission, he would ^ have have been appointed. Fur ther, ' Labor Circles ' could not expect to have two friends put on out of three places — Mr. Hanson's being purely an official appoint ment. The following versos are clipped from the Bulletin - TO ANOTHER FELLOW'S GIRL.

A Unique Testimonial. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

JBL. Unique Testimonial. With great pleasure we print the following testimonial to the great ability of Mr. Edward Farley as a teacher of singing. Mr. Farley is absolutely and by far the best baritone that Australia has | ever turned out, and we Know do abler teacher, native or foreign, of the art of vocalization. He has shoals of such testimony to the ad vantages to health, as well as voice, from a course of instruction under him : — Strathfleld, N.S. Wales. 22nd March, '97. Dear Mr. Farley, — As a lover of your art you will no doubt be glad to learn that your sytem of voice production has the twofold advantage of improving the health whilst it cultivates and strengthens the voice. Since my wife has been studying under you, I have noticed quite apart from the very great improvement in her voice, a mar vellous change for the better in her health, especially in her lungs, and in my son's case your system has done wonders for him : from being a delicate boy it has developed him into a...

Twice-Told Tales. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

Twice-Told Tales. Dress a man in a particular gar ment, call him by a particular name, and he shall have authority on divers occasions to commit every species of offence, to pillage, to murder, to destroy human felicity — and for so doing he shall be rewarded. — Jeremy Bentiiam. Two friends of the writer's once stepped into a two-horse convey ance in Hobart, and told the driver, who wore a deplorably had tile, to tool them over to Kangaroo Point. The seedy-looking man on the box merely stared. They expostulated ; it was no go. Then they threatened, swore a little, and lastly implored, but the hog-backed Jehu just fixed them with green-stone orbs and wouldn't budge. At length an ancient policeman came up and told them they were sitting in His Excellency's kerridge, and they'd better quit.

The Indian Famine. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

The Indian Famine. Perhaps it is foolish to wonder When pity is nipped in the bud. Your ears have been deafened with thunder, Your eyes have been blinded with blood. But if, through a lull in the batt ling, You listen — ah, listen again ; Out -roared by the voice of the Gatling, They cry ! Are they crying in vain ? Oh, Britain ! On lowering pinions, A fiend from the nethermost hell Is scouring your fairest dominions, Is scouring through city and dell. Look up from the spoils you ex amine, The laurel you flaunt in your hand ! Awaken ! The famine ! The famine Is eating the heart of the land ! No trumpets and bugles are wail ing The fate of the slain, of the slain ; No streamers and ribbons are trail ing; No tenderness softens the pain. And yet, through the hills and the valleys Red murder is leading the fray; In silence King Death and his allies Are holding carousal to-day. Greyhued, with their burning eyes sunken Deep into the famishing flesh, Foam-lipped, and despairing and shrunken...

WATCHMAN, WHAT OF THE NIGHT? [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

WATCHMAN, WHAT OF THE NIGHT? Watchman, what of the night ? Storm and thunder and rain. Lights that waver and wane, Leaving the watch-fires unlit, Only the bale-fires are bright, And the flash of the lamps now and then From a palace where spoilers sit, Trampling the children of men. 1 Mourners, what of the night ? All night through without sleep We weep, we weep, and we weep — Who shall give us our sons? Beaks of raven and kite, Mouths of wolf and of hound, Give us them back, whom the guns Shot for you dead on the ground. Captives, what of the night ? It rains outside overhead, Always a rain that is red, And our faces are soiled with the rain ; Here in the season's despite Day-time and night-time are one, Till the ourse of the chain Break, and their toils be undone. Liberty, what of the night ? I feel not tho red rains fall, Hear not the tempests at all, Nor thunder in heaven any more. All the distance is white With the Boundless feel of the sun. Night, with the woes that it wore, Ni...

Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

Things in General. , Percival Ball, the soulptor who died unmarried in England re cently, at the age of 56, was driven by ill-health to Melbourne about ?? fourteen years ago. In 'Victoria, he exeouted the Ballarat statue of ? Wallace, a bust of Bishop Moor ' house, and many private commia 'sions. Sydney gave him his big gest oppsrfcunity — for relief work ' was his strong point — when it pro posed to spend £20,000 on the z^'aeDoration of its facades and sub . facades of the Art Gallery with 20 sculptured panels. The sculptor was in London to arrange for the casting in bronze of his bas-relief Phryne before Praxiteles. He was p gold medallist of the Royal Academy and also of South Ken sington. % * In spite of the plague scare and some other adverse circumstance, the takings of the Agricultural Society Show this year only fell short of last year's by £l00 or so.

Corn Cobs. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

C«rn Cobs. Miss Thea Proctor has executed a book-plate design to the order of Governor Beauchamp, which he will use in his library. Our local art patron. Andrew Carnegie, it is said, is I about to endow a chair of Scottish literature at each of the four Scottish universities — St. Andrews, Aberdeen, Glasgow, and Edin burgh. Scribner and Sons are issuing a new edition of that unutterable drivel, Stalky and Co. which no one would read were it not branded with the name of Kipling. According to E. T. Cook, now editor of the Daily News, Chas. Dickens only occupied the editorial chair of that strong journal for three weeks. Routine tired him. He was more conscientious evi dently than the editor of a journal now in our mind's eye who devotes about one hour daily to his duty and gives the balance to his club. Tennyson so hedged round his domain with notices to trespassers that Mrs. Somers- Cocks said: 'Not much poetical license is here al lowed'. We are told that the marine surveyors on boa...

Praise from a Pressman. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

Praise from a Press man. | Dear Elector, — In last week's issue you quote a par (page 8) from Windsor and Richmond Oa%eitey re Buckley and Nunn, who flourished in Bourke-street, Mel bourne, and conclude with a line : ' So ancient as to be new. Well, |y,, ifc is ancient, I'll admit. I wrote it 20 years since, at least, when on i I '? the corresponding staff of the no* defunct Melbourne Bulletin. I ran against it in my scrap book recently, | and passed it on to the Gazette . — I | am, etc., J 0. L. Fitzgerald, Parramatta. t P.S.— Let me say that I regard the Elector as the most crisp, :??? chatty, meaty, and readable paper I gee hold of every week from Sydney. It is head and shoulders ' over the bulky ' comic ' papers of the colonies.

Political Patter. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 28 April 1900

Political Patter. The Australian birth-rate is 26-86 per 1000 ; a rate much lower than that of any European country — bar France. The French birth-rate is 22*40. West Australia tops our averages with 30-64: New Zealand Dotcoms with 25-11. These figures knock the theories of Malthus kicking. He thought that increased prosperity meant more babbies. It doesn't— The lowest types and the worst fad races, as a rule, have the greatest birth averages— a fact undeniable. Minister for Words O'Sullivan says that Protection is a great labor question — a Labor in Vain ques tion ! Some silly fool, whose name has no significance, said at the late Protectionist conference that Vic torian wages were higher than ours. . This ignorant person also said that goods were cheaper there than here, and so rambled on to the accompaniment of cheers. Wages being higher in Victoria than here and commodities cheaper there, accounts for the eagerness Victorians display to leave their birthplace. Beazley, M.P. Vict...

But he sees his master slaughtered without raising up his hand Tho' in other manlier moments he had tackled quite a band. Of course, he loves a colleen and she hangs aruuna his neck As closely as the diamonds which a dainty duchess deck ; And, of course he foils the villain and finds the valid will, And g...

Gore and Glory. A Bourke brigand writes from South Africa to say that ' this gamd is like bushrangiDg.' An English paper styles ourmeBj ?' Australian Bushrangers.' In both senses ? Why, certainly I Let us hear no more about the ' fine English sense of fairplay.' Bark play is nearer it. The Scarborough low roughs and swell toughs would not even permit the friends of Cronwright Schreiner to receive him at a cafe. They wrecked the caf6, destroyed the business places of some of his entertainers, and ruined their private homes. English fair play ? It is said that the Filipinos have 60,000 fighting men, all well armed, who can oarry on a guerilla warfaie for ever if need be. In Bloemfontein, says F, W.

Tuesday. — Rosebery Park Pony Races. Wednesday. — Kensington Pony Races. Wednesday. — Wollongong Races. Thursday. — Brighton Pony Races. It has often been debated in racing circles amongst old-timists whether The Barb was a better horse than Carbine or vice-a- versa, but the dispute is almost impossible to decide. Thirty years ago or so when The Barb was in his prime, the racing tracks of Randwick and Flemington were in a very primi tive condition, particularly Rand wick, and thus the respective time made by these champions cannot fairly be taken as any criterion. Besides which, three decades ago the local jockeys followed the English system of ' waiting for a finish,' with the result that slow time was always made. Nowa days, both in America and Austra lia, it is a case of ' heaven for leather '...
