THE ALL-RED CABLE. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
THE ALL-RED CABLE. &nbsp; &nbsp; LONDON, SATURDAY. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Inter-departmental Committee re- ports in favor of a proposed cable, touching only British or friendly neutral territory. &nbsp; They report the cable ought to connect every important colony or naval base with Britain. This being accomplished, many alternative cables would be possible along &nbsp; the commercial routes. The Committee recommends free-trade in cables with the exception of such cables as are inadmissible on national grounds.
THE SHOOTING SCANDAL. LIEUT. MORANT'S FAREWELL. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
THE SHOOTING SCANDAL. &nbsp; LIEUT. MORANT'S FAREWELL. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. The following verses appear in this week's Bulletin, which says that they were written by Lieut. Morant while in the Pre- toria Gaol awaiting execution. They are entitled "BUTCHERED TO MAKE A DUTCH- MAN'S HOLIDAY." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; In prison cell I sadly sit, &nbsp; &nbsp; And d—d crestfallen chappie, And own to you I feel a bit, A little bit unhappy. It really ain't the place nor time &nbsp; To reel off rhyming diction, But yet I'll write a final rhyme &nbsp; While waiting crucifixion. No matter what "end" they decide— Quicklime or "bilin' ile," sir— &nbsp; We'll do our best when crucified &nbsp; &nbsp; To finish off in style, sir. But I'll bequeath a parting tip Of sound advice to such men &nbsp; &nbsp; Who come across in transport ship To polish off the Dutchmen. &nbsp; If you en...
SENIOR CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
SENIOR CRICKET. The final match for the premiership of the senior association was concluded yesterday &nbsp; afternoon on the Association Ground. On &nbsp; the previous Saturday East Perth went in &nbsp; first and made 194. West Perth went to the &nbsp; wickets yesterday, and though they made a gallant fight to top their opponents' score, they failed by 25 runs, and East Perth thus won the premiership. Edmondson 66, Klein 29, Gouly 23, and Coombe 20, did best with the willow for West Perth.
CREMORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
Melodrama has caught on with a tena- cious grip at this cosy little house of amuse- ment, excellent houses being the rule throughout the week. Last week saw the production of "Never Despair,'' in which Mr. O. Taylor again presented his claims as a versatile and finished artist, his Horatio Spriggins being a distinctly quaint and re- freshing conception of a broken-down B. A. Messrs. Keegan, Lyons, Seguin and Haynes played creditably, the latter's Lancashire dialect being excellent and true to the character depicted. Amongst the ladies Miss Marion Willis, Miss Carrington, Miss Davis; and Miss Coppin played acceptably, the latter lady having undoubtedly inheri- ted her father's genius. On Monday "Arrah- na-Pogue" will be staged, and on Wednesday "The Right Man" takes the boards. Mr. Frank Smalpage announces that he will sell on Saturday, May 3, 12 very fine blocks. The land is situated close to the tram. Investors desiring a good block to build on cannot do better than inspect this pr...
THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
THEATRICAL. &nbsp; THEATRE ROYAL. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The excellent little curtain-raiser "A &nbsp; Highland Legacy," and the highly-amusing farcical comedy, "Tom, Dick, and Harry." &nbsp; were played last night to a crowded house. &nbsp; &nbsp; There can be no room for complaint on the part of the company at the patronage they have received in Perth, for throughout the &nbsp; week the audiences have not only been large but thoroughly appreciative, and we may add the company deserved the appreciation. To-morrow night Mr. W. F. Hawtrey has decided to change the bill, when the new farce, "In the Soup," will be played. It &nbsp; will be preceded by a bright little one-act &nbsp; play, "The Color Sergeant." An additional attractive will be the first appearance in &nbsp; Perth of Fr. Elsa Buhrow.
CHILLY CAMPBELL. WANTS A GOOD SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
CHILLY CAMPBELL. WANTS A GOOD SHOW. __ When Shakespeare wrote the lines so graphically descriptive of a valiant soldier &nbsp; he surely had not Lieut.-Col. Campbell in &nbsp; his eye. Listen: — "When the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger; &nbsp; &nbsp; Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, Disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage; Then lend the eye a terrible aspect; &nbsp; Let it pry through the portage of the head Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'er &nbsp; whelm it As fearfully as doth a gallèd rock O'erhang and jutty his confounded base. Swilled by the wild and wasteful ocean. &nbsp; Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide, &nbsp; Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit &nbsp; To his full height. On! on you noblest English, Whose blood is fet from fathers of war- proof! &nbsp; &nbsp; Fathers that, like so many Alexanders, Have in thes...
ERRING ECCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
ERRING ECCLES ____ E. B. Eccles, "the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo," and who had a flutter with the pencil on the Newmarket with most disastrous results to himself, arrived at Fremantle from Broome last night by the steamer Australind in the custody of the police. Eccles will be brought up under the Bankruptcy Act. A Yiddisher punter, who got himself into very bad odor with the books some time ago owing to his promptness in coming up for a settlement when he won and his lapse of memory when he lost, recently compromised with his racing creditors, who perforce for- gave him the balance, and allowed him to make a fresh start. His return to the race- course has not been a very auspicious one, and if be takes our advice he will take to ping-pong or some other exciting pastime, and leave racing alone. At the recent W.A.T.C. meeting he went in for a bit of a &nbsp; splash, and by forestalling owners of horses which did not win and other "snide" prac- tices of the turf he ...

LATE SPORTING. CANNING PARK RACES ASTEROID WINS THE AUTUMN [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
CANNING PARK RACES ASTEROID WINS THE AUTUMN The Canning Park April meeting took place yesterday. The weather was beauti- &nbsp; fully fine, and there was a good attendance. The books had the best of the battle with backers, red hot favorites in Paragram and Miss Bobbie going down, while the victory of Eos in the Farewell Handicap gave them a "skinner."

LATE SPORTING. VICTORIAN RACING. V.R.C. APRIL MEETING. MAIRP MEETS WITH MISFORTUNE MELBOURNE, SATURDAY The April meeting of the V.R.C. was held at Flemington to-day.

DRAUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
DRAUGHTS. &nbsp; Draughts players will be interested to learn that there is likely to be another tussle for the world's championship. At &nbsp; one time it was thought that Barker, the American, might summon up courage to visit Scotland and endeavor to wrest the laurels from Jordan, but so far not a word has been heard from the Boston expert. The new aspirant to championship honors is one Harry Freedman, a much younger man that the present holder of the title, and a brilliant checkerist. The negotiations have not been completed, but it is expected that no hitch will crop up, and that Jordan and Freedman will have a struggle for supre- macy early in the summer. Freedman is said to be in great form, and as Jordan has been showing great skill during his tour a &nbsp; very close and exciting contest may be looked forward to. &nbsp;
TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
The W.A.T.C meeting yesterday week was very successful, and except in a couple of instances the fields were very good. The stewards showed that they are determined to put down inconsistent running, and a couple of inquiries were held throughout the day. One case, however, they took no &nbsp; notice of, where a few pertinent inquiries &nbsp; may have been made, and it would be as well for the stewards if they did not in the &nbsp; &nbsp; future confine their investigations into the horses owned by bookmakers. &nbsp; &nbsp; Veracity was made a strong favorite for the Claremont Hurdles, and evens was the best price obtainable about the wall-eyed mare at the finish. Williambury, who was reported to have been badly beaten in a gallop with Veracity on the Thursday, was well backed down to 2 to 1, while Reminder, who was rather sore but was otherwise very well. did not lack friends, who accepted 5 to 2 about his chance. &nbsp; &am...
ASCOT BROWNING FATALITY AN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902
Mr. R.L. Walker, licensee of the &nbsp; Ascot Hotel, writes: I was somewhat &nbsp; surprised at the statement in your issue of the 30th ultimo concerning the drowning fatality at Ascot on March 17. I may state you were wrongly informed by some malicious person regarding the part taken in the unfortunate affair by my wife and myself. It is evident he was careful to tell you only one side of the story. The following is what actually took place:—During the afternoon I was in the bar, when Constable Poyser came to me and asked me for a blan- ket as someone had fallen into the river. My wife immediately gave him one. He then asked for a little brandy, and put down a shilling for it without being asked for payment. I was very busy at the time, the bar being full of picnickers. I did not know the serious nature of the acci- dent. Shortly afterwards a gentleman came to me and told me that the un- fortunate boy was in a dying state and &nbsp; that brandy was required ...
