WAROONA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

WAROONA   --     ---     BY OUR TRAVELLING CORRESPONDENT. This, township, situated on the South-Western Railway, derives its chief support from the milling industry. The sawmills in its vicinity employ several hundred men, and at the time of my visit there were a few thousand loads of marketable timber in readi- ness for sending to tile seaboard only waiting for trucks to take it away. If these trucks are not promptly supplied, the works will be stopped and hun- dreds of men will be thrown out of employment. I visited the school at Drakesbrook under the charge of Mr. J. E. Jones, than whom there are few persons in a similar position more popular with the parents. I found there were 73 names on the roll. I examined the work of the pupils,   which showed that the progress was   creditable to the master. An eyesore addition was being made to the teacher's residence. Whoever was the designer, he e...

TO THE DEAF.   A CURE FOB DEAFNESS.—The Indian   Specific, lately introduced into this country, is absolutely the best remedy ever known for deafness and noises in the head. It goes right to the seat of the trouble, and speedily effects a complete cure.

The Sunday Times SUNDAY, MAY 4, 1902. PROCUSTES PARKER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY, MAY 4, 1902. PROCUSTES PARKER. This bombshell was fired upon us from smokeless and noiseless powder on Monday last :—"At the request of Mr. Justice Parker, the Government has decided to appoint a Commission to inquire into the old charges made against him by the 'Spectator.'" Not a word of explanation appeared in that issue of the "West Australian" as to just what this little paragraph meant. That some explanation was necessary those who have followed up the history of the charges against Mr. Justice Parker from the time they were drafted in this office, read in Parlia- ment, published in the ''Spectator," made the subject of two trials in the Criminal Court, till the startling an- nouncement in the public Press last Monday, will not for one moment question. But during the week, in spite of repeated importunities from the daily and weekly journals in this city the Premier and Attorney-General in one has sternly and firmly resolved upon absolute silence, and ...

FRUIT FIBS. IGNORANT INSPECTORS. HARPER-HACKETT HESPERIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

FRUIT FIBS. IGNORANT INSPECTORS. HARPER-HACKETT HESPERIDES. People arriving in this State from the East are astonished at the price they have to pay tor fruit, and those who have lived here for years are constantly complaining not only of the high price, bnt of the scarcity of this commodity. The easiest inference is that the market is badly supplied, and that a natural scarcity is responsible for the exorbitant charges posted np in the   fruiterers' windows. This inference is wrong, however, since if the natural laws of   trade were allowed to operate here as they   do in other parts of Australia, no family, however poor, need sit down to a meal without fruit. The explanation lies in the fact that we have here a groper element among the orchardists who are determined to keep the market for themselves, no matter bow unable to keep it fully supplied. They are assisted in their selfishness by a corrupt and incompetent Government, with only one fi...

M'AULEY AGAIN. CONVICTED OF THEFF. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

MCAULEY AGAIN. CONVICTED OF THEFT. It will be remembered that when we drew     attention to the blackmailing of pros- titutes by Dectective McAuley that gentle-   man, under the noses of the police, cleared out and went to South Africa. Our readers may be interested in learning what has   become of him, and we therefore give the latest, culled from the Natal Courier:— Two members of the Water-police force, M.   McAuley and H.B. Neill were yesterday   charged in the Court of Mr. Colenbrander, assisstant magistrate, with the theft of two bottles of champagne from a case on Alex- ander Square Point, on Saturday, at 2 a.m. A native constable reported to Constable McCarthy that he had seen accused commit   the theft. The Sergeant searched the main wharf for the men, and then went to   St. Paul's Wharf, where he found McAuley leaning against a stack, an empty champagne   &a...

THEY SAY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

THEY SAY That the enthusiastic reception to the Sixth Contingent was refreshingly hearty compared with the Fifth's. That Overcoat Campbell's bleat in the   West was responsible for the cool public reception for his comrades. That the latter were nevertheless accorded a cheery welcome apart from the puny paladin. That the "footpaths" in the vicinity of   Pier and Wellington streets corner will one day cost a fortune in compensation. That the alleged asphalting is reminiscent   of a long-neglected country lane. That the siding rails across Welling- ton-street prove the asininity of our aldermen.     That the late arrival of the returned con- tingents was a godsend to the corps now at   Karrakatta.     That in order to prevent waste, these   starving swaddles were given leave to charge   the gone-bung banquet. That medicine and massage were necces- sary to r...

CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

"All the venal crowd." —Byron     Russia means to have a railway to Peking. Another whitewashing Royal Commission appointed. Deakin is to boss the Federal show during Barton's absence. The Goldflelds-Esperance Railway League is in active eruption once more. Threatened Russian revolt is the price the Bear has to pay at home for its aggressions abroad. To be sung by Premier Leake to-morrow night, "Up in a balloon boys, up in a balloon." They want more thorough and careful sanitary inspection down at Cottesloe Beach. Using the nightsoil for their flower-pots is not conducive to good health. Cooke has been calculating the length of the last comet's tail- with a view of ascer- taining its gaseous effects on Leake's policy speech, to-morrow. The glut in the goods traffic at Fremantle is worse than the crush must have been in Noah's Ark. All the trucks seem to be lost somewhere at the country sidings. Doubtless this State will fall into the common error and sacrif...

KURRAWANG ONCE MORE. ANOTHER RAILWAY SWINDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

KURRAWANG ONCE MORE. ANOTHER RAILWAY SWINDLE. Page 50 of the Merchandise Rates Book, applying to charges for Government wagons over private companies' lines, provides for charges for any distance up to 25 miles at 3d, per ton, over 25 miles and up to 50 miles at 6d. per ton—amounts payable to be com- puted on tonnage of traffic carried at the total length of the respective companies' lines. The above regulation is the law of the land, and cannot be altered except by the Governor in Council. Still, by some means, the Kurrawang Syndicate have already gained concessions from the department which have not been so approved, and although the rate books are not yet in the hands of the staff the following regulation was issued yesterday, thereby illegally alter-   ing a public rate in favor of this already too well-favored syndicate.

HOSPITAL HOCUS. MEDICAL COMFORS FOR THE RICH. PERTH POOR REFUSED PHYSIC. CADGING CLIQUE AND CRUEL COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

PERTH POOR REFUSED PHYSIC. CADGING CLIQUE AND CRUEL COMMITTEE. It is hard fate for the sick among the poor of Perth to have to rely on the re- puted benevolence of the so-called "public" hospital The greatest boast of Christian lands is their charity to the halt, the   maimed, the blind, the fever-stricken,   wounded, the infirm, and the suffering afflicted generally. We have no desire to dispute the justice of this boast. We care not, for the purposes of our article to-day, whether the Buddhist King Asoka antici-   pated the Galilean by centuries in the foundation of houses and axioms devoted to the care and the cure of the sick, even among animals; whether Æscuplapius had his temples crowded with the poor seeking relief from the painful ills of the flesh; or whether our hospitals are the especial gift of the benevolent spirit of Christianity. These questions lie in the domain of history and controversy, and we are ready to start with the assu...

KALGOORLIE KETCHUP [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

BY KURRAJONG.       The 30 per cent. rise in railway freights   which is to come into operation next week (unless Kingsmill has a lucid interval in the meantime) is likely to have a farther-reach- ing effect than its authors contemplated. Not only has an influential deputation loaded with facts and figures been appointed   to try and knock some sense into the thick head of the Railway Commissioner, but other smouldering embers of discontent against the Perthmantle Government have     been fanned into a vigorous flame. The agitation for the Esperance railway is to be strenuously re-initiated, and every public body from Norseman to Leonora will take a hand in the game. Delegates from all over, the Fields will meet at Dustopolis next Wednesday, and the band will play as stir ring a tune as it ever did in the days of Kirwan's comic-opera Separation agitation. An enterprising auctioneer is already ...

RAISING TURKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

RAISING TURKEYS.           In nothing does a good beginning count for so much as in raising turkeys (says a writer in the Homestead). Many are not   very successful in turkey growing, and after they have given as good care as they know how, they wonder why they fail. The beginning should be good. What does that mean? It is a common practice among shortsighted turkey-growers to pick out all   the best for market, keeping the smaller ones, under the impression that they will grow large enough by the time they are wanted for breeding. This is a grave mis-     take. In a flock of turkeys there will be those that are better developed, bigger boned—and these are just the kind needed for breeding purposes. To achieve success in turkey growing it is well, therefore, to make a good beginning by selecting the best hens in the flock—good, deep, blocky birds, with large bone and ...

THE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

The following is a good standard for Berk- shire pigs :—Black, with white feet, white in face and on tip of tail, and an occasional splash on the arm. A white spot on any other part of the body is objectionable and should be discouraged, although it does not argue impurity of blood. Wherever roots are used as part of the ration for swine, quite remarkable results are obtained,   apparently out of all proportion to the feeding value of the root. This seems to show that the roots serve to render the food more digestible. Although pigs do not like raw turnips, yet when the turnips are cooked and mixed with raw potatoes or cabbage, they will eat them readily. When a small amount of bran is fed with this mash, good gains are made. GROWING AND FEEDING PIGS. The following is extracted from a paper read by Mr. W. P. Winner at the Farmers' Institute, Mound Valley, Kansas :—     I would select thoroughbreds of the breed   I desired to grow, ...

A MAGISTERIAL MANNIKIN. RESIDENT OF WYNDHAM SPEAKS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

A MAGISTERIAL MANNIKIN ____     RESIDENT OF WYNDHAM SPEAKS. From a letter to hand from a correspondent     at Wyndham the R.M. most be one of those magisterial mannikins so plentiful in the   Nor'-West, with the soul of a caterpillar and as much sense of justice about him as a hungry boa constrictor in search of its prey. The writer asks the following pertinent question :—Can a R.M. give evidence in any   case which is tried by the clerk of courts   and a honorary justice of the peace? The question arose over a case in which a party   was summoned for furious driving in and out   of Wyndham, sometimes twice a day, for the past 12 years, and though his horses did not exactly come out of the Ark they are   little more than Animate Specimens of Senility. One of them was eight years of age when he   was brought to Kimberley by Mr. Carr- &...

HORSE BREEDING. STARTING THE STUD. (Written for the SUNDAY TIMES) No.IL The Polo Pony. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

STARTING THE STUD. (Written for the SUNDAY TIMES.) No. II. The Polo Pony. I have placed these first on account of the high price the variety brings in the   open market wherever the game of polo is played. As yet they can hardly be called an established breed, though in England it is being experimented with on such lines as   should ensure the development of the essen- tial characteristics of the ideal polo pony. But as yet, like all crossbreeds of the domes- tic animals, there will be frequent revisions for some time to come. However the right class of men have taken it in hand, and it will eventuate successfully before long. At present fine types of those ponies have been produced even up to the fourth generation, and these so descended run into very high figures. But the market supply still prac- tically comes from ''freaks" of various breeds--in the majority of cases from the crossing of thoroughbreds with various varieties of pony mares, occasionally t...

PLACE TO PRISON. A PRINCESS'S FORGERIES. SENTENCED TO TWO YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

The cable news on Friday brought the following message concerning the conclusion of the trial of Princess Radziwill at Cape Town :—"The trial of Princess Radziwill, on the charge of forging the name of the   late Mr. Rhodes, was Concluded at Cape Town on Wednesday. The defendant's counsel urged that there was no fraudulent intent on the part of his client, and that nobody had been injured. Mr. T. L. Graham, the Attorney-General, who ap- peared to prosecute, stigmatised the defendant as a blackmailer and   A Cruel and Dangerous Woman. The Chief Justice, Sir J. H. de Villiers, in summing up, remarked that it had not been suggested in the correspondence which had passed that Mrs. Scholtz had handed the prisoner the bills, which were alleged to have been forged. The jury returned a verdict   of guilty on all counts. The Chief .Justice, in passing sentence, deplored the prisoner's   attempt to asperse an innocent woman, and &nbs...

THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL "SAN TOY." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 4 May 1902

"San Toy, or The Emperor's Own" has had such a magnificent run during the week that the management have decided to run it along indefinitely, though the last nights (how many we are not told) are advertised. It is unnecessary to again notice the several excellent performers, as already most of our metropolitan readers are familiar with them. We have only to say that what we said last week has been verified nightly, and no piece could receive more favorable notice than   that afforded by crowded houses every even-   ing. Singing, dancing, libretto, scenery and dresses all speak for themselves, and woo and re-woo the crowds that follow crowds of delighted spectators.
