OUR MEN IN BLUE. THE DANDY TROOPER. Bushranging Reminiscences. THE WATER POLICE. A Web-Footed Brigade. GENERAL ORGANISATION. No. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

OUR MEN I F BLUE. ? ? -«- ? THE DANDY TMOPEK, . Bnshraiigiiig Reminiscences. THE WATER POLICE. A Web-Footed Brigade. GENERAL ORGANISATION. No. II. The mounted police are decidedly the dandy and arist&cratic branch of the service, and quite a HALO OF ROMANTIC ASSOCIATIONS clings around this part of the force. Whereas it would be thought derogatory by many men to join tho foot police, by some curious freak of sentiment they con sider that no loss of social status is involved in becoming a trooper, and conse quently the mounted men are drawn from a wider circle of society. Of course, oven in tho ordinary police there are many men of superior education and what is termed good family, but in their case it is usually a case of necessity or the result of the force of circumstances, whilst in the mounted force this career is frequently a matter of deliberate choice by well connected youths, who are in no way const rained by financial straits. A few SCIONS OF BBITISH ARISTOCRACY, suc...

THE WATER POLICE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

THE WATER POLICE constitute a third branch of the force, which, though numerically small, is by no means unimportant, being entrusted with duties which almost necessitates that they SHOULD BE AMPHIBIOUS, or at all events web-footed. Those men only number 27 all told, under the supervision of Inspector George Hyem, and although chiefly located in Sydney, are expected to be in readiness to go wherever their services are required within the colony. They are a sturdy and serviceable looking body of mon, clothed in a semi- ; nautical uniform, and of a DECIDEDLY SEAFARING APPEARANCE. Their chiof qualification next to being under thirty years of age and of sound physical constitution is that they should bo practical 6eamen, and accustomed to handle and live in a boat. Their duties comprise a rogular patrol of the Harbor, and attendance on tho signals from vessels requiring their services. For this purposo thoy aro provided with two steam launches and two boats. They have to look after dese...

MUNICIPAL GENEROSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

MUNICIPAL GENEROSITY. It is not often we see Municipal Councils going out of their way to meet tho rate payers, yet this is exactly what hap pened at Alexandria on Wednesday even ing last. But perhaps the nearness of the municipal elections might have had some thing to do with it. At all events tho Council received a proposal from a rate payer who was considerably m arrears, and had been served with a summons, to work it out, and in their kindness of heart and eagerness to help a suffering fellow mortal, thoy agreed to leave it in tho hands of the MayOr to make the best bargain he could. Surely this establishes a dangerous precedent, for if once this system of reciprocity is started where will it end? All. the indigent widows in thovborough will want to clean tho Town Hall, tho plumbers to connect their own places with the sewers, the masons to kerb and gutter the footpaths in front of their own pro perty,. &c., all in order to work out their rates, and thns the borough woul...

GOLDFIELDS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

GOLDFIELDS LIFE. The happy, free and easy days of Cool gardie are rapidly giving way to modern civilisation, according to the following para graph appearing in tho Coolgardie Miner : — ' In the early days of the field you could walk down Baylev-street at night, and from within almost every second hutnpy the delightful strains of various musical instruments, the popping of corks, and roars of hearty laughter could be heard, as those within waxed merry, played euchre with a dirty pack of cards, or crib bage with bars of soap and matches for markers. They slept anywhere there was room to lie down, and got up when they felt refreshed; each man togged no way in particular, and most of them grew somo sorb of hirsute adornment to their- lower jaws. Now all this is changed, and the callous-heartod vagabond who wears a boiled shirt and collar in all weathers is in our midst; we camp between sheets, cut our nails and clean our teeth — with much wasto of precious water, at least evory second w...

THE GLUT OF FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

THE GLUT OF FRUIT, There has been some singular growling lately on the part of fruit-growers because there has been a glut in fruit, and it is impossible to obtain remunerative prices but surely these complaints reflect strongly on the want of enterprise or want of intel ligence on the part of the producers. 'It might have been supposed by unsophisti cated outsiders that it would be impos sible to have too much of a good thing as sound ripe fruit, especially when the result is presumedly the object of those who have invested thoir means in tho industry. It appears, how ever, that so soon as their efforts are re warded by an extra prolific return they are nonplussed because they cannot imme diately dispose of thoir crop at fair prices. That such an expectation is unreasonable requires no special acumen to perceive, and yet no preparations — or, at any rate, none upon an adequate scale — have been taken to spread the yield over a sufficiently long period to obtain a fair return. In th...

WERE THEY ALL WIVES ? [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

WERE TIIEY ALL WIVES ? There aro no doubt many little perquisites and privileges pertaining to the position of a member of parliament in a democratic community, but one of tho accompanying inconveniences is the publicity Avliich occasionallv is given to them by an in considerate Press, when such publicity is unsought and unwelcome. It is all very woll for the newly fledged member to see his name appearing in the news papers as the author of a stirring speech upon the grievances of Bog Flat or the wants of Gumbuburra Gully, but he hardly experiences the same amount of satisfaction at the appearance of his wife's name as the recipient of a free pass on the railways at a date when his better half was in reality attending to hor household duties, and under the fond delusion that hor husband was immersed in his public duties in the metropolis. If rumor can be credited with half the statements made in connection with those free passes, there must have been some dreadful mistakes made by s...

DEEP SEA FISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

DEEP SEA FISHING. The report of tho Fisheries Commission, which was presented to the Colonial Secre tary last week, is undoubtedly a document deserving of more than passing notice. It is undeniable that in the seas which sur round our continent there is a store of wealth in the shape of a natural food supply, the neglect of which by a hardy and enterprising population seems almost inexplicable, and is only to be accounted for by the ease with which the people' have been enabled to earn a subsistence without resorting to this vast source of supply. Now, however, that the conditions of lifo in these colonies are approximating in many respects to those . of older countries, it is becoming evident that this great national wealth which lies at our doors cannot be permitted to remain vra gathered and unutilised, and it becomes a matter of national importance to devise the best and surest means for gather ing it iu, not only as a source of food supply, but as a'means of remunerative employ...

MAYORS OF SYDNEY. Who Was the First? [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

MAYORS OF SYDNEY. Who Was the First? There has been some little controversy as to who was the first Mayor of Sydney. It was claimed that Mr. Geo. Thornton, M.L.C., was, but it appears that he was not actually first Mayor, but first under the present Municipal Constitution. The following is a list of Sydney's mayors : — 18W— John Hosking I860 — John Sutton 1S44 — J. H. Wilahire 1867-S — Charles Moore 1845 — George Allen 10(,Q f Charles Moore 1846 — Hy.

THE SOBRAON. A Reasonable Complaint. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

the' SOBRAON. A Reasonable Complaint. Complaints have been made to us of the inconvenience caused by the system adopted at the Department of Public Instruction in connection with the issue of orders to visit tho Sobraon. It appears that tho issuo of the orders is restricted to the two davs before the half-yearly visiting day, and although there were some hundreds of the friends of the boys on board anxious to ob tain passes on Tuesday and Wednesday last, only one clerk was told off for tho duty. The result was that some persons had to wait for hours L'2ore thoy could be attended to, besides being subjected to a good deal of unpleasant crushing, and as the official went to lunch at 1 o'clock the applicants wero kept waiting for an hour, being unable to leave without losing their turn. Thero seems .no good reason why the issue of theso passes should not be extended over a week at leaBt, and during the last days a couple of clerks might be appointed to issue them, and thus save waste o...

The weather ?was hot and fine, and the tracks were in splendid order. No trouble occurred throughout, the peds being on their best behaviour, although in the sixth heat, W.

The ped in question was a red hot favorite, but shaped indifferently, Beemingly to the disgust of his supporters, who had come down from the North 'With, plenty of coin to support him. He may be able to run, but does not give ono the appearance of a sprinter. Anyway, he cut a wretched figure, ' and was admonished and informed that his showing did not please the promoter.

WARWICK FARM RACES. Kelso Has a Good Day. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895

WARWICK FABM KACES. Kelso Has a Good Day. Warwick Farm races yesterday were held in splendid weather, and the attendance was quite np to tbe average. The special trains were well filled, and the service, as usual, was good. In the Flying Handioap, the first raoe of the day, Brooklyn was backed down to 4_to 1, whilo Peeress and Plain Bill were at a point longer odds. Glendennon, Marie May, and Attachment were also well backed. It was a good race, the finish being particularly ex citing. Peeress led into tho straight and to the half-distance, when Mario May, Plain Bill, Attachment, and Brooklyn (who had not had a good run), camo down on tho leader. A rare battle home ensued, in which Attachment just got the better of Plain Bill by a head, with Brooklyn a good third. The Two-year-old Handicap looked a good thing for Creme d'Or, the only proviso of Payten's being that he got well away. Bona-fide got a great pull on the others when the barrier went up. Crefiaed'Or had got on terms at the...

' I'll bet what yon like,' ho said, ' tho man has never known the folioity of posses sing a mother-in-law.
