WHAT DOES HANLAN MEAN? [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 27 January 1887

WHAT DOES HANLAX MEAN? HaxIiAN is to row a match against Gaudauk in America in May, and if he do this he certainly cannot row against Beach on theNepean in July. Supposing him to beat Gaudauk and to start instantly for Australia, ho could not arrive hero until the latter Dart of June, and ho cortainlv would not lie fit to row after a long sea voy age for at least five or six weeks, especially as he is given to be move than a little luxurious in his habits. A sea voyage under modern condi tions would put a man in fine condi tion for killing, supposing him to be eatable when dead, but it is about the last kind of preparation tho ordinary athlete would like before testing him self against such an antagonist as Beach. If the story, bo really true, and Haxlajt is going to try his luck against Gaudaur in May, we can only conclude that he has no intention of meeting Beach at all. Gaupaur is said to intend coming here to try conclusions with- Beach, and if he does we shall all be heartily g...

Tom Tiddler 's Ground. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 27 January 1887

Tom Tiddler's Ground. ? ♦ ? = ? Of all people in this world Mr. Robert Scarlett, lately Private Secretary to tha Premier, is, I think, most to be congratu lated. For he is to escape from the most unenviable position a inan could possibly hold, and is to be no loser by the change. To be anybody's private secretary is bTul enoKg-h, for a private secretary is after all subject to as many caprices, impertinences. and impositions as a governess ; but to |have to be private secretary to every adventurer whom chance may pitchfork to the top of the political dung-heap is an unspeakable humiliation. The, one thin' uncomfortable about his good fortune is the extremely uncivil manner in which it is conferred upon him. The Premier de prives Mr. Scarlett cf his office on the grpuncl that 'a private secretai-y -would be a nuisance to him I' This is a very impolite thing to say to a gentleman whose position prevents him from resenting the impertinence. It will, however, occur tomost persons who ha...

A BAY OF WEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 27 January 1887

A BAY OF WEEPING. 'Mrs. William,' says the porter in Charlks Dickens' pretty Christmas ' story of The Haunted Man, ' is liable * ' to be taken off her feet by the ele ' ments ! Mrs. William cannot be . 'expected to be superior to the ele iuunLs : ouruuuiy not, ana wnac was true of Mrs. William was cer tainly true yesterday of that national impersonification which we clumsily call New South Wales. Not only was New South Wales taken off her '. I feet by the elements, but her sons and daughters and man servants and maid servants and the strangers ?within her gates were similarly cir cumstanced. Indeed the houses and the railway embankments, and a great many objects ordinarily stationary and solid, shared in the same fate. The floods washed them away, sent them swimming down toward the sea, and compelled all people who de pended upon tkem for shelter or for means of locomotion to shift for themselves and wait for better- times. * * # Perhaps, after all, a ninety-ninth birthday is not a ...

C. SAMUELS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 27 January 1887

C. SAMUELS. The above is an excellent picture of Charles Samuels, who is nt present our champion sprinter. Samuels, who is an aboriginal, and a native of Queensland, conies from the Jimbour station, recently owned by the late Sir J. P. Bell, who was one of the greatest sporting men in Queensland. Ho is of very slight build, but looks nil over a runner, being very long from hip to knee, and very wiry. He came under the notice of the New South AVales public when he ran for the fifth Sir Joseph Hanks Sheffield Handicap, won by Stuckey. Samuels, however, did not get a place, through not being in con dition. He was taken' in hnnd by ex perienced men, and having a good trainer, Mr. Robertson, also of the Jimbour station, he succeeded in winning the eighth Sir Joseph Banks Handicap in V.i l-osec. from the 11yds. mark, Lnzarus second, Wetherly third, and Budd fourth.
