THE MARQUIS ITO IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

THE MARQUIS ITO IN LONDON. From every wind the message is blown upon us.' At least we have had our warnings. We shall never be able to deny that. Lord Rose bery^ gospel of efficiency was impressively preached on Friday when the Marquis Ito spoke in the city. It is thirty-eight years ago since he arrived as a youth in London with but one companion. He had worked his way from Shanghai before the mast, and whenjie made acquaintance with the London Bocks he was apparent!}* the most forlorn, and helpless creature in London. Now he has been four times Prime Minister of Japan. Hase w welcomed by the Lord Mayor and many of the chosen in the nation. It is to him above all others that Japan owes her place amongst the nations of the civilised world, one of the fore most nations, with a record behind her for efficiency in every department, in military and naval affairs, in commerce, industry, and science. As the Times well points out, the motto of Japan, as of her great statesman, has been alwa...

Roman Catholic Education. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

Roman Catholic Education. ; [By "Mao." In Yiew of the frequent laudatory speeches - by B.C. dignitories on B.C. education, which are reported in the press of the State, and the increasing demands for State aid to B.C. schools, let me commend to the readers of the 1 "Watchman" the following article, quoted from the "Christian Citken" by the Melbourne *• Messenger" of Jan. 24, 1902:— "On October 18th last, in Dublin, an impor tant address on * Education in Ireland1 was given by Mr. J. F. McCarthy, a Boman Catholic barrister, which is full of interest to Australians when the Boman Catholic heirarchy is seeking to perpetuate the sectarian enduca tion, so scathingly condemned by this gentle man, author of ' Five Tears in Ireland.' While the occasion of the address was the proposed Catholic University, Mr. McCarthy discusses the whole question of primacy, intermediate, and higher education, as influenced by the Boman Catholic Church. He boldly says: ' Speaking for myself, I will not surre...

The Man in the Street. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

The Man in the Street. "Well Jack! we aro getting it properly now, I hope you are seeing the fun, There's Toby a-showing us what he can do When he mounts his political gun. He's shooting us square in thejtenderest part, Nor flinches at all when wo squirm, It's his duty he's after, and we are the mark Of " Australia's Noblest Son."

Obiter Dicta, [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

Obiter Dicta, The Hon. E. W, O'Sullivan boasted the other day at the Hibernian banquet, as a proof of his loyalty to Ireland, "that he belonged to a Government—the first, with courage enough to proclaim a holiday for St. Patrick. Up to the time these words were spoken, however, the Government had not ,the courage to do what he gives it credit for. It was only on Wednesday last that the Executive—for the first time approved of St. Patrick's Bay being proclaimed a public holiday. In 1900 and 1901 the cele bration of this day was sneaked in on othei pre tences than those of honouring St. Patrick. Once English, Irish and Scotch had an opting of this kind, but Sir Henxy Parkes swept all that away. The word Audacity would better express the action of the Government on this matter. Im pudence rather than Courage is its characteris tic. What have Australian (N.S.W.) taxpayers got to do with Iroland or Ireland's patron saint? Are public offices and public schools to be closed simply because ...

On the Educational Question [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

Oil the Educational Question In my lost contribution to you I made & remark that " the R.C. Church will never be allowed, to exercise a temporal power in the Australian Commonwealth." But he must bo a sanguine man, indeed, who can not afford to rest upon that assurance. Becent develop ments have directed the attention of those who keep vigilence ou the various " differences," notably that of the educational question. It is a peculiar tiling that the Catholic Press is now clamouring for* ecclesiastical interference to boycott the Daily Telegraph over its out spoken article on this question, ■ and it is not so very long ago that a boycott was proposed, and indeed carried into effect on the S. ju. Herald, and now that paper is held up as the O.K. paper. The struggle for the schools- has divided parties in every country where the church is strong enough to exercise an influence on politics. It has raged violently in France, Italy, Canada, and the United States, while in Germany ...

RUSSIAN EXPANSION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

RUSSIAN EXPANSION. M. de Whittet the Russian Chancellor of the Exchequer, has officially informed tne Czar that the "Great Siberian Railway" is com plete. This does nut ineau that permanent regular traffic can be opened, two more years of work being required for that, but " tem porary traffic can from to-day (November 9th) be carried on along the whole system," that is, from Moscow to Yladivostock. Even this much, of course, will greatly facilitate the transit of letters, of special officers, and we should suppose, of urgently required troops, the journey being rather slow in its Inter stages than actually impeded. The line as yet constructed is nearly five thousund miles long, and with all its imperfections reflects the highest credit on the perseverance both of the Government and the engineers. They have gone on steadily for ten years; they have had, says the Czar in his reply to M. de Witte, to face "incredible difficulties"; and now the end is fully in sight. We have dwelt previ...

EDINBURGH SHOCKED. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

EDINBURGH SHOCKED. A shock was given, to the strict Sabbatarians of Edinburgh on November 30 by the unex pected announcement by the Tramway Com pany that they would run a full service of their trauicars on Sunday. It appears tliat the company,' to whom the corporation leased the tramways, have been unable to work them at a profit, and the cor poration took judgment against them for £40,000, under which the}' could enter into possession of the tramways. ■ - Notice to this' effect was given to the com pany, whereupon a meeting was at once held, and the view expressed that a profit could be made if the tramcars could be run on a Suuday. "Without giving the corporation or the citizens time to raise objections, the com pany accordingly launched their announce ment, and next Sunday morning saw the strange sight in Edinburgh of the tramway service in full swing. The public seemed to enjoy the novelty, and the tramcars were well patronised. Denuncia tory pulpit references were made, and an ...

GERMAN CLERKS WARNED. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

GERMAN CLERKS WARNED. The Gorman Young Men's Christian Associ ation in London has sent an urgent warning to young men in Germany not to coine over to England in the liopes of getting a good situa tion. The present war in South Africa, writes the association, has so seriously affected business that many persons have been dismissed from what had been safe and lucrative positions. It is difficult enough for men who are well equipped with a good knowledge of business and of languages; but for men without means, and who are not good linguists, the case is desperate. " Nobody in Germany has an idea," concludes the warning, "of what swarms of educated men are wandering about here without any employment, who would gladly do any manual labour to get the means of procuring a meal, and whom hunger compels to beg. Crowds of our countrymen often stand round our doors after ton o'clock at night, not knowing where to go for a bed."

SIR H. FOWLER ON THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

SIR H. FOWLER ON THE WAIt. Sir Henry Fowler, speaking' at the banquet to tlie retiring Mayor of Wolverhampton, Raid he had never concealed from his constituents his opinions as to the cause and object of the terrible campaign in South Africa. Ho had nothing to recant or explain away. It was not necessary for him to repent or to defend his opinions. They had been, strengthened and confirmed by the accumulation of evidence which had convinced him that the one and only question at issue had been, and still was, the preservation of the destruction of British supremacy in South Africa. That question was one on which there could be no compro mise, and on which the British Empire was determined there should be no compromise. Subject to that supreme condition, they were all anxious for and ardently desired a just and generous and honourable and lasting peace, a peace that should guarantee to Briton . and Boer equal laws, equal rights, and equal justice, a peace that as soon as practicable s...

Although we in Sydney have practically an unlimited supply of water there ore other channels through which we are mado to feel tho drought which falls with so much severity on our less fortunate fellow countrymen. Yet when our country salesman comes down with his order book barely tonched or wires down that he proposes to take a holiday while this lasts, then indeed the trouble is sheeted home to us in a way that strikes dismay in the generally callous heart of the Sydney merchant. One line that has this season given more than the usual eoLcern to importers is cod, ling, and other Lenten fish. This is not owing to th...

Household Recipes. Stewed Green Peas.—Shell enough gieen peas to make one quart, wash one lettuce, and cut it up, also one onion into rings. Put these in a pan with two ounces of butter and a little salt and pepper. Let these stew gently for about one hour. Do not add any water; there will be enough on the lettuce after washing it. Nest add half a teaspoonful of castor sugar and one egg, which must be well beaten. Put the pan over the fire for the egg, peas, etc.; to thicken, 'but on no account to boil. Serve in a hot dish. Tournedos aux Olives.—Take a pound and a half or two ponnds of rump steak, rub it well with a clove of garlic.'then brush it either with oil or clarified butter.

A Jesuitical Move. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

A Jesuitical Move. In tlie "Sydney Horning Herald" some short time ago there appeared a report of a deputation which sought Government aid for; St. Joseph's Hospital, Auburn, introduced "by I Mr. Nobbs, M.L.A., accompanied, by Mr. I Mackenzie, M.L.A. In support of tlie applica-1 tion, it was pointed out thut tho institution was a goneral hospital, governed by the. same Board that controlled St. Vincent's Hospital, but a strange fact was, as one speaker said, " There was not one Roman Catholic on tlxat powerful deputation." The .Premier, though expressing strong views, promised to lay, tho matter before his colleagues, and it would be carefully oon siderod.

In. the course of his address lie moved the following resolutions:— (1.) That this Lodge pledges itself to support the Juvenile Smoking Suppression Bill in its main object, and also to try to stop juvenile smoking as far as it lies in their power to do so, on account of the evil results incurred by juvenile smoking. 1 (2.)

About a week or ten days previous to his death, which occurred on the 28th January, he was caught out in a heavy shower, • and what with wettm£ and over exertion to reach the shelter of his house, he suffered so mnch that all the skill of the doctor and nursing proved unavailing.

"At the Sign of the Red Pale." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

i.t the Sign of the Red Pale.'' It is one thing to howl at Roman Catholicism and aaotlier to understand it; to find out | the measure of its usefulness and the secret of its spell: "Why it produces saints and how it ruins nations. If abuse, if exposure, if mani fold and manifest sinfulness, corruption and unreason alone were needed to secure the downfall of Homan Catholicism it would liave perished long ago. But we know that as a system it is. active a id powerful though decay ing; and it is the secret spring, of this power that .we must discover, and understand. Con siderable help, in this quest "wUl.be afforded by Harrack's Lecture on " Monasticism, its IdeaLa and History," with which is incorporated a second interesting lecture on."The Confessions of St Augustine." Prof. Harrack is not only one of the first scholars in the world, he is an instructed Protestant. He has taken the mea sure of Catholicism; he knows its weakness and he knows its strength. And its strength lies in devo...

Literary and Library. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

Literary and Library. • By Tinea, or The Book-wobm. Strange that Tennyson's dramatic poem " Becket" should not be more popularly known. Many fine lines of exceptional dignity and lyrical beauty therein are not excelled by anywhere by the poet himself, and sometimes too only by his master—gentle Shakespeare." The epithet " gentle " deserves a special line of glossary. Evidently it is equivalent with " gentlb born." This settles another debate " Was 8hakespeare a gentlemau ?" • Another interesting epithet of the same day is " belted Will." It was becomingly worn by a well known nobleman, William Howard. Stephen Phillips is a poet of the Mil tonic cast —bloodless of feature, and with large eloquent eyes. His work is in the manner of Seats— polished and well considered. His thought is deep and somewhat sombre, without being gloomy. If he writes his future verses in a garden, or a-down a leafy lane of his island home, they will be truer poetry, because nature is the cup-bearer of the poe...

ST. PATRICK'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 8 March 1902

ST. PATKICK'S DAY. Dear sir.—I wish to draw your attention to the matter of the Government proclaiming the 17th March a public holiday in honor of the patron saint of Ireland. Last year it was made a public holiday on the pretext of substituting it for Anniversary Day, that holiday not being properly honored in - consequence of the gloom cast over the colony by the Queen's death. Now, sir, without any reason or pretence, ex cept that the two last 17ths of March were observed on other grounds the Govern ment have the cool audacity to inflict on the struggling business people another day's loss of trade. How different Mr. McLean . the Premier of Victoria acted two years ago when a deputation requested liim to grant the day as a public one. He replied he could not do so as tbe Scotch, English, and "Welsh would expect to have their saints honored the same way, and he also would be unwarrantably interfering with the rights of trade and the business of the colony. Our Premier seems to vie...
