THE AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN. MACLAREN INTERVIEWED. Talks on the Tour. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
THE AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN, MACLAREN INTERVIEWED. Talks on the Tour. LONDON, SATURDAY. A. C. MacLaren, the English captain, in an interview stated that he thought the Australian Eleven now in England to be far weaker than the previous eleven which visited England, and also that their success will depend ou the condition of the wickets during the tour. He also contradicted the statement that the professional members of his team were &nbsp; dissatisfied with the treatment they received &nbsp; by the Melbourne Cricket Club in regard to bonuses. It is reported that His Majesty the King will attend the match to be played at Lords on June 12. Jones has been suffering from a severe &nbsp; cold, but expects to participate at practice, which commences at Lords to-morrow.

A WOMAN IN FLAMES. A Narrow Escape. On Friday morning Mrs. Edwards, of Cottesloe Beach, was heating some beeswax and turpentine on an open fire in the back &nbsp; yard when the fire blazed suddenly up and her dress accidently caught fire. She was speedily enveloped in flames. Some work- men hearing her screams came to her rescue and extinguished the flames, but not before the hapless woman had sustained very serious injuries. &nbsp;

SANDOWN PARK MEETING. SANDBOY ANNEXES THE SANDOWN HANDICAP. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY The Sandown Park Racing Club had the bad luck to encounter wet weather at their April race meeting yesterday, which did &nbsp; not prevent a good muster. Three favorites got home during the afternoon so backers were pleased with themselves, as they have been having a bad time lately at the recent suburban meetings.. The following are the results:— &nbsp; &nbsp; TRIAL HANDICAP, &nbsp; Of 50 sovs. Five furlongs. &nbsp; &nbsp; Lance, 8.3 (G Minter) ... ... 1 Cerise, 7.2 (Fisher) .2 Florist, 8.2 (Redfearn) ... ...... 3 Others—Petherton, Naelbundum, Casino Girl, Hilda, Attica, Fetter, The Leader, Gloria, Ngarveno, and Improver.

ADELAIDE TRAINING NOTES. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
ADELAIDE TRAINING NOTES ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. &nbsp; On the Morphetville training tracks this morning several horses engaged at the fourth- coming S.A.J.C. meeting exercised. Nitre ran a mile and a quarter comfort- ably in 2.21½, finishing strongly. Chieveley and Lord Kitchener were &nbsp; coupled together for a mile and a half, which the got over in 2.55, both finishing well. Sport Royal, after cantering a round, was &nbsp; &nbsp; brought home a strong mile by Newark, in 1.54. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Barbarossa and Flintlock went over a mile and a half in 2.54. The former had all the best of the argument, going better than he has done lately, and completely held the grey at his mercy, the last five furlongs taking 1.10. Fortune Teller and Footbolt were not &nbsp; asked to gallop fast, as they had not got &nbsp; over their railway journey. Footbolt &nbsp; moved very attractively....

LATE SPORTING. HELENA VALE RACES. EOS WINS THE JUNCTION. STEWARDS' HUE GOES TO HONITON. The Helena Vale Racing Club held their &nbsp; April Meeting yesterday. There was a good attendance and some excellent racing. In the various races several horses were backed to win good stakes by their connections, and some capital finishes were witnessed. The stewards called the owner of Prelusive, J S. Mackay, and her jockey, Jeffreys, before them to explain the running of the mare in the Junction Handicap, and after taking &nbsp; evidence decided to refer the case to the W.A.T.C. committee.

SMYTHE AND SMITH. LAWYER AND LITIGANT. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
SMYTHE AND SMITH. LAWYER AND LITIGANT. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. A disgraceful row, within and in the pre- cincts of the Central Police Court, occurred on Friday afternoon last between a well- known police-court lawyer and a man named &nbsp; George Marsden, charged with deserting his &nbsp; wife. Smyth was conducting his own case and the lawyer, Carter Smith, was opposing him. The bench had listened to a consider- able portion of the evidence when a remand was agreed upon to enable Smythe to bring to court a man who, it was alleged, was the complainant's husband, living at Singleton. In the course of hearing Smythe had given the lawyer several cutting taunts, so Smith went over to Smyth and said : " Now, what do you mean by insulting me? Come out- side and I'll wring your nose for you." Upon this Smyth went outside and Smith followed and made a rush at him. Then Mrs. Smyth interfered, and Smyth asked the magistrate if he had heard the insulting remarks "made by the solicitor...
RAILWAY MISMANAGEMENT. STRONG STRICTURES BY THE "SUN." KALGOORLIE, SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
RAILWAY MISMANAGEMENT. __ STRONG STRICTURES BY THE "SUN." KALGOORLIE. SATURDAY. The Sun publishes a strong article on the intolerable railway mismanagement, which is altogether unhinging the goldfields good traffic, and threatens a serious and alarming block. Publicity is given to the fat, &nbsp; hitherto hushed up, that on Friday goods traffic from the central station at Kal- goorlie was totally suspended for 24 hours. Between 600 and 700 waggons lay idle at &nbsp; Kalgoorlie, Kurrawang, and Golden Gate &nbsp; through lack of coal. Every available pound of coal had to be scraped together to keep &nbsp; the passenger service going, and not a single goods train left the station. Seven loco- motives from Southern Cross were Robbed of the Fuel Supply for their return journey and rendered as useless as the waggons. Arrears of freights &nbsp; &nbsp; for the northern line are becoming enormous. Coal has been almost unobtainable for weeks, an...
THE LOCAL COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
THE LOCAL COURT. &nbsp; "Reform" writes : In a recent issue your article on "Debt Collecting Sharks" is very suggestive indeed, especially as regards how our Local Court practice is carried on. I constantly have business to transact with that court, and I must say that everything carried on there seems extremely defective. A proper inquiry into the working of that branch of the public service is urgently needed. The Attorney-General should lose no time in that direction, and any board of inquiry that may be appointed should be composed of men having a legal training and also conversant with the working of similar departments in other States. I &nbsp; have on many occasions found that a certain rule was laid down by the present Chief Clerk on one day and altered the next. This doubtless was owing to his Gross Ignorance of His Duties. You have referred in the article mentioned to a procedure called "Summons to show cause. This was formerly unknown to the Local Court, b...
SOUTH PERTH MAYORALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
SOUTH PERTH MAYORALTY. We desire to draw attention to the lengthy address of Mr. J. Charles published in another column. Mr. J. Charles gives the ratepayers a long bill of fare, and a very tempting one, and it is to be hoped, if elected, that he will fulfil his imagined promises. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Austral Stores, of Wellington-street, a firm of photographic and musical suppliers, have published in album form a series of beautiful views of picturesque Western Aus- tralia. So spontaneous has been the demand for the work that a further large batch is in course ot preparation. A number of views prepared by this firm appeared in our sup- lement of the 6th issue, and we hope to print a further batch shortly. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
THE BLACK KETTLE. PIESSE OR PIRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
THE BLACK KETTLE. PIESSE OR PIRACY The letter of Piesse against the new rail- way freights is like a sermon from his satanic majesty. If the old saying that to be a suc- cessful politician one requires a vast amount of impudence be true, then F. H. Piesse &nbsp; should assuredly be a most successful one, for St. Nicholson bimself could not beat him at that game. His howl in Wednesday's West Australian seems to have several ob- jects, and reading between the lines—per- sonal ones—most people whose business brings them in contact with the railways agree that the principal cause of the railway &nbsp; trouble lies in the shortage of rolling-stock. Who is to blame for this state of affairs? Who but the Minister who neglected to pro- &nbsp; &nbsp; vide, through ignorance of his duties or &nbsp; strict attention to making the railways sub- servient to private concessions—sandalwood &nbsp; &nbsp; agreements and personal interests—the i...
"JARRAHDALE JACKANAPES" [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
"JARRAHDALE JACKANAPES" __ "Anti-Serang No. 2" writes : I would like to know if the postal official referred to in your columns by "Anti-Serang" is the same person who was postmaster at Broome &nbsp; Hill. From the description he must be the same. It would perhaps be interesting to yon to know why this individual was re- moved from Broome Hill and why the resi- dents burnt him in effigy just prior to his departure, also the number of times he was made to disgorge overcharges at that office. But the £240 of the Great Southern Agri- cultural Society's funds with which he levanted has never been disgorged, and had it not been for the influence of that won- derful "square and compass" he would have spent the last 18 months with Mr. George, at Fremantle, fulfilling a position he is more adapted for than his present occupation. If my memory serves me rightly, this same person recovered from the New South Wales Government £275 as Damages for Injuries to his youngest son, the result...

TURRF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
TURF TATTLE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Canning Park meeting yesterday &nbsp; week was very successful, and quite a large &nbsp; assemblage was present at the club's prettily &nbsp; &nbsp; situated course. The finishes in two or &nbsp; three instances were close and exciting, and &nbsp; reflected credit on the handicapper, Reg. &nbsp; Pell. The books started very badly, but they finished up good winners on the day, &nbsp; &nbsp; as the last couple of races were disasterous to &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; punters. What a terribly bad jumper is So Long! Were it not for his great size he would &nbsp; break his own neck and possibly his rider's &nbsp; in short order, but though it takes a rough &nbsp; rider to pilot him he has the happy (?) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; knack of galloping through anything and &nbsp; ev...

ROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
ROWING. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Fremantle Rowing Club's regatta on Monday, June 2. promises to be a great success, judging by the amount of financial assistance the club is receiving from the business men of the town. The seaport &nbsp; sportsmen are no doubt worthy of the name, and the sin cannot be laid at their door if they do not all turn out Harry Searles, Bill Beaches, or Elias Laycocks.
BOOKMAKERS v. SUNDAY TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902
BOOKMAKERS v. SUNDAY TIMES. A cricket match was played last Wednes- day afternoon between teams representative of the Perth Bookmakers and the SUNDAY TIMES. The match eventuated at the Zoo- logical Gardens, and proved thoroughly en- joyable in every particular. Chief contributors to the pleasure of the meeting were the Stanley Brewery Co., Donaldson and Collins, and W. Jones, of the Globe Hotel, whose generosity in providing an ample supply of liquor was responsible, for libations full and free. &nbsp; The game was contested in the happiest &nbsp; of spirits, and it is fairly asserted that no &nbsp; pleasanter contest ever took place than the one. under notice. The game was won by &nbsp; &nbsp; the Pressmen on the first innings, but in their second effort the metallicians showed that they had been got rid of rather cheaply &nbsp; in their initial effort. Scores:—SUNDAY &nbsp; TIMES, 91; Bookmakers, 60. The staff of the SUNDAY T...
