TIVOLI THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912

TIVOLI THEATRE. The old adage 'Good -wine needs no bosh' is amply borne out by the packed houses g&etunr the Bickanban company at the Tivoli Theatre. Although no new artists were tailed to appear, those who have been delighting audiences during the last week hare, earned each popularity that' the theatre, was filled long before the orchestra was rang in. Risisldo is the star of an 'all-star' b3L and one is at a loss for adequate adjectives to describe his torn. If possible he received a more imperative demand for more than on his first appearance, and submitted new' items. This artist has to be heard to be appre ciated, as no amount of writing can give any idea as to the merit of his perform ance. We strongly' advise all lovers of music to make the opportunity and hear Rinaldo at least once. The Athletas have added to their turn, several ''new' feats, and the audience seemed unable to have .'enough, of them- . In their ''own particu lar line they are second to none, and it i...

The Steady Stream Immigration to Sooth Australia. The Present Policy. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912

The Steady Stream Immigration to Sooth Australia. The Present Policy. : Owing to the fact that there are un skilled labourers at present out of woric in, Adelaide, occasion has been taken on the part ofsome trade unionists to in discriminately condemn the immigration policy of the Government. Apart from the fact that every care is exercised to bring in only a desirable class of immigrant, it is pointed out that t&e present policy has only just been given effect to, and that any influence that immigration has had on the industrial situation is the out come of the policy of the late Govern ment. The present scheme was explained by the Minister at the time of its in ception, and though it contains less re strictions than that of the Verran Go vernment, care is taken to assist only those immigrants likely to be an asset to the State. Work is found for assist ed immgirants on arrival, and though if is impossible to keep track of all those j who pass through the hands of the de pa...

The. Mail. ADELAIDE: SODXIGET. SATUBDAY, MAY 11. COST OP GOVERNMENT. Complaints are made of the cost of go vernment in Australia. Critics affirm that it approximates £50,000,000 a year. This includes the duplication of several mil- lions returned by the Commonwealth to the States, but we can let that pass with' the observation that it is. impossible to say what should .be the proper cost of government without an agreement con- cerning its functions.

Ladies at Morphettville.

The racing folk have had a suffi ciently good time, what with Goodwood to start with, and then Cup Day, though it goes without saying that much* of the social smartness and general verve were taken out of things on Monday, owing to the disagreeable weather. However, to day's gathering has been ample compen sation. ? His Excellency the Governor was pre sent. Miss Bosanquet, Miss Phipps, and Mrs. Row were the occupants of the vice regal box, which was prettily decorated with cornflowers, chrysanthemums, and as paragus fern.

THE REV. DR. SEVAN. A' ?RTCWA'RKABT.lK PEBSONALITY. THEOLOGIAN, ORATOR, SOCIALIST, AKD CONNOISSEUR. A living human link with the times of the Jacobite wars must be -wellnigh unique in the twentieth century, and a personality -who can be eo described is surely a figure of interest in these days when the internecine wars of rival royalty are but so much reading in our history books. Yet soch is -Dr. Bevan, the emi usst minister and theologian, who hns made himself one of the best-known and beet-liked men in Adelaide during his few years' residence in this city. Dr. Bevan can recall, as a child, conversing with his grandmother, who was born in 1744 — the year bciore the battle of Culloden. This remarkable lady lived to 104, and it ?was within a year of her death in 1848 that Dr. Bevan remembers her. A book by Dr. Bevan on 'People I have Known' would make fascinating reading indeed. He has worked for social reform with John KusMn in England, has numbered among his friifiija in America E...

BKITISH ASSOCIATION. HINDMARSH V. PORT. The Mayor of Hindmarsh (Mr. J. D. Brown} kicked off. The Ports got pos session, and immediately pressed. Ford relieved with a bje punt. Wallace tried a_ shot, but it went wide. From the kick-off Hindmarsh made tracks for the Port goal, and Rowley & Co. had an anxious time. The Ports then attacked, and forced a corner, but it was cleared. Mason was next conspicuous by good play. What seemed an almost certain goal for Port was admirably saved by Ford. Wilde was again in evidence, and eleared a shot from Denham. Flashman was playing a sterling game for tbe Ports, and relieved time and - again. Hindmarsh had herd lines in not scoring ny a irfcfc by Lock, Jones failing with the required touch. Good work by the reds' forwards ended in Rowley saving a splendid shot from Hoggins. Praise must be given Mason at this point for clever footwork, and it was unfortunate that his centre -was not netted. Half-tune arrived, with the score nil. Ports put...

Football, which had reached its zenith about 1892, experienced a rapid downfall, principally through the lack of interest occasioned by the small number of important clubs left in the then association after the de- smis of the Adelaide Club, whose me- teoric success iu 1886 after one year of existence as a senior club will be well   remembered by old devotees of the game.
