THE MIRROR of SOPRT HORSE, FOOT, AND MARINE Returning the Pelf. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 28 July 1917
[?] HORSE, FOOT, AND MAKINB -By Our Correspondents. Returning the Pelf. Chaser Caibye was not long in putting back the pelf lost on him in the Grand National Steeple into the pockets of punters. He captured Godfrey Watson Steeplechase at Cauliield last Saturday in good style, but even then had to survive a protest for an alleged interference with the second horse, Widden. Cajbye's price was a surprise, and leads one to believe that the tribe of Ike in Melbourne must oe in a very ocncvotcni niuuu jusi at present. The field wasn't anything like as dangerous as that which Caibye stacked up against the previous week, yet 3 to 1 was freely on. This nag is sure to shape well in the coming Australian Steeplechase, but the writer does not think that he will be able to turn the tables on the N.S.W. leppcr, Old Mun gindi, who, according to all accounts, had in hand more than- the 91b difference in the weights between himself' and the horse which lie beat by half a length.

Bush Brigands Tales of Old-time Rangers I.—WHITEHEAD AND HOWE, In his interesting history of bushranging in Australia, Mr. Boxall says the first 'ranger of whom there is mention in the records was Whitehead, leader of a gang which in 1810 robbed farmers and others in the neighborhood of Hobart Town. A proclamation was issued offering rewards and indulgences to cqnvlcts who would assist in the capture of the gang. Whitehead was he first to organise a band which combined lighway robbery with burglary and petty lar :eny. One of the crimes of which he was cnown to have been guilty was the torture of i crazy convict, John Hopkins, whom he susv -ected of attempting his betrayal. He made, i pair of moccasins, roughly fashioned from - ?aw hide, fitted and fastened these to the* feet -f the suspect, and filled them with bulldog inta. Hopkins died in awful agony.

Then he jumped off his seat, danVinri miir th* tmi acain and made back through a hail of fire to the trenches from ?which he had just come. In ten minutes he was back with two new prisoners. 'What did you do such a mad thing for?' asked his pla toon commander. 'Bll' me,' was the reply, 'I dropped me plug w'en I was bitin* of? a chew in the trench.' 'And what about these?' asked the officer. 'Oh, well, they 'appened to be there w'en I got back, an' a feller mustn't shirk 'is chances. So I just brung 'em along with me.

But the conference, being composed neither of politi cians nor 'of military theorists, w»a the oort of body of which common-sense might be ck pected. As to recruiting itself, despite the wise resolutions, the outlook In still dubious. Patriots need no persuasion, and it is doubtful wnethcr the hard-shelled Indiffcrentlsts that remain can by any means be persuaded. From month to month while the war lasts there will always be a certain number of volun tary recruits, but we wunt and must have seven thousand a month. Seven thousand a month represents the irreducible minimum. If ohe falls short of that minimum, Australia will be guilty of black treachery to her sons on the fighting front We are giving the voluntary system its final trial, and every patriot must join in making the tri...

I.W.W. RAID SMART POLICE WORK [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 28 July 1917
I.W.W. RAID SMART POLICE WORK Tfie raid by the police (under instruction* from the Inspector-General, whose special power is conferred by the War Precautions Act) on the I.W.W. headquarters in Sussex street, Sydney, was the consequence of a boast by some of the leaders of the incendiaries that, if there were a surprise visit to the premises. there would be a surprise for the visitors. The suggestion read into the threat of tho I.W.W. was that their meeting place was pro vided with appliances to be used to defeat any attempt of examination into the methods of the association — bombs, firearms, and other weapons, the possession of which is in opposi tion to the regulations. The Inspector-General of Police, acting with a proper regard to his . responsibilities as the chief of the system pro vided for the preservation' of the peace of the city, ordered an invasion of the rooms, and this was effected last Sunday night, in a manner which established the efficiency of the force.
