Woman's Rights. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

Woman's Rights. "What a lot of discussion we hear on th woman's suffrage question. It is asserted tha because women have not a vote and a 6ay the political matters of the country that the-*,, rights are disregarded. A walk through th& streets of the city makes an observer question*., whether they exercise the rights and liberties: they possess. Apart from all the politicals bearings of the question—which may doubtless, be'viewed in various - lights—the subject pi women's right is an intensely interesting one;-' Individually and collectively the mission of the weaker sex is a great one, and their responsi bility is greater still, for the moral and spiritual tone of the countiy is due, in a great measure, " to what they do or leave undone. Thoy may not frame the country's laws but they certainly frame its morality, and are answerable for its reputation. Their influence is unbounded—: for good, if they claim their rights—for evil if they disregard them and pass by life's most:,...

How the World Wags. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

k How the World Wags. By Argus. Fedekax PjiEiiiER Baiiton* comes in and out of Sydney, ininus a brass band or any public display. His movements liere are conducted very quietly, and when tliere is a sign on the part of the public that Barton should explain things at a public meeting', he folds up his tent like the Arab and glides silently away. Mr. William Lane, one of the most brilliant writers on the Haoriland Press, was in Sydney recently. Most of Mr. Lane's descriptive work is done under the nom de plume of " Tohunga," and one of his clever articles recently appeared in the columns of " The Watchman," The article which dealt with a historical episode in Canada was taken from the u N. Z. Herald," a paper that includes "Tohunga" amongst its leader writers. If the present drought around Sydney con tinues there will be a water famine in very . many quarters. A few of the suburbs are r already under the system of short supplies. I The dailies at last are beginning to make a fuss over...

"THE WATCHMAN" AND THE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

" THE "WATCHMAN" AND THli " THEATRE. ' We have rec.ived a number of letters on this subject (including a reply from "Koorawatha"), which, although many of them show consider-, able-merit, we have decided not to publish. Ocr reason for doing so is this. It appears to us that most of our correspondents have missed the point raised by •" KoorawaJia." The • question submitted by was not " Is it right or. wrong to attend theatrical entertainments/' but "should ' The Watchman1 directly or indirectly encour age fheatre-going." The former'might form the subject of an interesting and possibly in structive academical discussion in that paper, but in our opinion the time is not yet. Other and more important matters have a prior claim on our space. The question of our policy as regards the theatre, however, may well be dis closed at this early stage in our career. We are well aware that many of our supporters, good Protestants and members of the Christian Church, do not object to theatre-going,...

London Notes. (Specially compiled for "The Watchman.") CORONATION ERMINE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

• London Notes. {Specially compiled for " The Watchman.") CORONATION ERMINE. There will be much devastation among the white ermine that swarm on the plains of Canada and Bussia before the Coionation next June brings a joyous time to England. It : is the skins of theBe little creatures that will trim the robes of peers and peeresses at the Coronation ceremony, aud so great has the demand for them become that prices have already risen 50 per cent, and there is likely to - be another 50 per cent, increase before Coronation day. The increase in price, the representative of one of the largest London firms of wholesale furriers explained lately, was not because the increased demand would result in any shortage of skins, but because the merchants, knowing that the importers must have them, would put up the prices* Many firms, foreseeing an increased de mand, speculated to some, extent in the furs, and purchased largely three or four months ago, when the price was about £3 10s. a "timber," ...

ST. PATRICK'S DAT. At the H.A.B. Benefit Society dinner on 25th ult the Minister for Works, Mr. E. W. O'ful" livan, is reported to have said "he was glad to be present, and to respond for the Ministry. He did not want to recite the many progressive laws the present Government had put into practice.

LORD ROSEBERY: SANTA GLAUS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

LORD ROSEBERY: SANTA GLAUS. Lord Rosebery on Saturday night (says the Daily Mail of December 11) took a walk round i the streets of Epsom in company of tuo chair- i man of the urban council, liis immediate object being the inspection of the new scheme of electric lighting. In the working-class portion, of the town ho stopped opposite a waste piece of ground, where a large crowd stood around a crockery dealer disposing of his wareB. After watcliing the proceedings for a few jninutes, Lord Rosebery went up to the dealer, offered to purchase his remaining stock, and finally struck a bargain for £5. Lord Rosebery chen proceeded to give the articles away to tlie people, out in doing so exercised much discrimination, the poorer looking1 children and women being the prin cipal rcipients, though everybody was anxious to receive something from his bands. The affair caused no little stir in the neigh bourhood, and the noble donor seemed to enjoy his part in the proceedings immensely. Three he...

The Australian Protestant Defence Association. NEWCASTLE BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

The Australian Protestant Defence Association. NEWCASTLE BRANCH. Ajjdbess by Rev. it m. Bowies. The usual- monthly meeting was held on Wednesday night in the Cambrian Hall. There was a large attendance, and after the business was disposed of, the Rev. R.M. Bowles, intro duced as subject for discussion " The actions and speeches of Cardinal Moran,during hia resi dence in this State." This prince of the Romifth Church was departing from our shoreB in the course of a few days, the prospect of his: return in the future was dim, on the part of his own people it was undesirable, for no man j had done more to arouse Protestant sentiment; and widen the gulf between Roman Catholics j and their fellow citizens in this new Common wealth than Cardinal Moran. If it. is a sin to stir up strife among neigh^ bours, and even a greater sin to stir up religious strife to promulgate slander and manufacture lies, then verily, Cardinal Moran has been found guilty, by the press and the public, and has wel...

Woman's Column. [" Esther" will be glad to receive and answer any com munications addressed id lier, care of tha Editor, 264 Pitt-street.] • . . - Dear Dorcas,-^ Every good housewife is getting anxious about the water supply, and albeit we are cheered by the officiattihriounCdment tliat there is enough water in the reservoir to last three months, without any nun, still the sooner the heavens weep, tho happier Sydneyites will be. What it must be up country, we city dwellers have only a very faint idea, but to read the. country news just now is to read a chronicle of parched lands and dead and* dying flocks, that is almost heart-breaking. Now that the'plague scare is in full force it behoves the Balmain Council to send, round, their dust carte twice a week instead of once. "A stitch' hi* saves nine," and by the ordinary process of having the dust tins emptied thrice or twice a week, there would be no encouragement for rats. Tho present antiquated system means only a weekly call, and t...

The Sentry's Dream. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

The Sentry's Dream. THe .cairip lay hushed in slumber, a* little cluster of tents, between which the moon-s ravs cast fitful shadows., The great silence of night hovered over it, unbroken, gave for an occasional impatient stamp from among the tethered horses, or a few half inarticulate words from some tired sleeper. A sentry stood but a short distance away, his body, half hidden behind a tall tree, his sleepless eyes eagerly trying to penetrate the darkness of the dreary bush. Eager and alert though he was he yet could not keep his thoughts from straying away from his present surroundings to another scene, far distant, where wife and child lay sleeping. " All! to be there once more," he thought" the hands he loved so- well deep locked within his own, the child smiliiig'up at him .as it lay upon his ."breast. How he would delight in "winning honour to himself, for those deaf ones' sake. Perchance the opportunity might yet arise. Among his comrades who had'sailed with him there was ma...

THE Watchman [?] SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1[?]02. INSULTS TO THE FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1102. INSULTS TO THE FLAG. In out last issue, we referred somewhat briefly to a speech reported as having been delivered "by Father Buxbuhy, a Roman Catholic priest, at the annual dinner of the Hibernian Australian Catholic Benefit Society. It will be remembered' that this speech abounded with insults to Great Britain, and called upon Australians generally to " cut the painter," and be allied no longer to "an Imperialism that crushed the life out of humanity." Among the insults was the state ment that "within the last month 679 men and women, and over 2000 children were murdered by the flag that floats over us." We | have been hoping to see some apology for this . speech in one of the many Roman Catholic publications of this State, but so far have been ! disappointed, It is not, we know, the custom I for apologies for these insulting and unfounded! statements to be made, but seeing the pub licity already given to this disloyalty,|and the extent of the treason, we ...

Vices—Male and Female. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

Vices—Male and Female. " Ye've got to fight for what yer want, or want an* go without; It isn't zactly what you'd call a real angelic plan. But man is not an angel an1 wont be while he's man." The above was quoted by our Premier in the! Town Hall at the great loyal meeting recently held there. Now, if the excuse for war is that man is not an angel, and that is taken for a good and sufficient excuse; why not let us be consistent and let the same excuse hold good with regard to gambling. Parliamentarians seem to be attaching much importance lately to Tattersall's sweep while other things as- cfosely affecting us are left severely alone. Tatter sall's sweeps hare undoubted caused much sorrow to many who have been successful in drawing large prizes, and the old saying about putting a beggar on horseback and he will ride to a certain' gentleman, whose name is never mentioned in polite society, certainly seems to be verified often in the cases of these suddenly made rich unfortunates.
