BRISBANE-ST. POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
When the Federal Government took over the possession and management of the post telegraph services it was expected that &nbsp; great improvements would be evidenced throughout the Commonwealth. Whatever may be the case elsewhere, here in the metropolis of the West, instead of progress, matters have degenerated from bad to worse. &nbsp; Take a single illustration. On Tuesday last Mr G. F. Dear sent a telegraph from the Brisbane-street Post Office addressed to Mel- bourne. The telegram was of an urgent &nbsp; character, and it was important that an &nbsp; early reply should be received. On the &nbsp; &nbsp; following day (March 23) a reply arrived at the Brisbane-street office. It arrived at 5:20 p.m. But not until the next afternoon (Thursday) at 3:32 p.m. was the reply de- &nbsp; livered at the address of Mr Dear. Can there be any possible excuse for such delay? Had the matter been one of life or death the result would have bee...
NORTHERN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
NORTHERN NOTES BY THE WIZARD The smaller fry amongst the racing coteries of this part of the colony seem to select for their outings the most unpropitious time of the year, and to think that sport is best car- ried out when old Fahrenheit is tangled up amongst three figures. The weather during the past eight or ten days has been abnor- mally hot for the time of the year, yet, on Patrick's Day two race meetings were held &nbsp; &nbsp; --one at Walkaway and the other at Nan- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; son's stronghold, Narra-Tarra. The latter was meant to be a brilliant success, but turned out a very one-horse affair, or rather three or four horse show, as the number of entries was miserably poor, and the racing ditto. At first it was intended that North- ampton should co-operate with Narra Tarra. &nbsp; They are decaying sags of townships some 15 miles apart, with more than the usual allowance of petty spite, jealousy, malice, ...
CIVIL SERVICE CHANGES. AMALGAMATIONS EXTRAORDINARY. CLIFTON TO BE CREATES R.M. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
AMALGAMATIONS EXTRAORDINARY. CLIFTON TO BE CREATED R.M. Sweeping changes are on the eve of being &nbsp; effected in the civil service. The altera- tions will practically result in the establish- ment of a new department and the amalga- mation under two distinct heads of a number of minor departments, those in control of which have lorded it over their underlings in a style bordering upon the most objec- tionable. We are in a position to state that the Cabinet has the reforms now under con- sideration, and will probably give sanction to the alterations early in the coming week. &nbsp; While the reforms about to be cited have been in contemplation for some time the death of Mr. Lindley Cowen, Secretary for Agriculture, gave the Minister for Lands the opportunity for the much-needed reorganisa- tion of the department under his control, particularly in Many of the Hybrid Branches under heads such as the Stock Department, Rabbit Department, Forestry Department, Agricultur...
THE PIPE-TRACK PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
THE PIPE-TRACK PICNIC. By invitation THE SUNDAY TIMES repre- sentative was present at the alleged trial of the completed section of the Coolgardie water scheme pipes which took place east of Chidlows Wells. There seems ever some- thing sinister about the scheme, for even the engine attached to the train of Parlia- mentary picnickers intent on endorsing the trial broke down and delayed the party for over an hour. On the spot all that could be seen was one joint, which it must bc con- fessed leaked very little indeed. All the others, however, may have been leaking bucketsful for all the average layman could judge to the contrary. Nevertheless, at the luncheon afterwards, Minister Rason, being the only one to speak, assured everybody that If One Joint could be made to stand the pressure of 204 1b. to the square inch, in that difficult spot among hills and curves, there was no reason why 160,000 joints should not stand the test. This may all be very true, but it would serve an egg vendo...
CABLEGRAMS. TRANSVAAL WAR. KITCHENER'SJEW TACTICS. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
CABLEGRAMS. TRANSVAAL WAR. KITCHENER'S NEW TACTICS. LONDON, SATURDAY Details are coming to hand of the recent great drive of Lord Kitchener. Owing to the enormous area to be traversed and the incompleteness of the blockhouse lines Lord Kitchener adopted new tactics. The bulk of the enemy were at Harte- beestefontein. Under the bright moonlight, columns were marched out a considerable distance to the westward of the enemy, under Col. Rawlinson, in the direction of Klerksdorp. Some others rode for 40 miles in parallel columns in a straight course upon the enemy's lines. The boldness of this move completely puzzled the enemy, and sniping was un- heeded. &nbsp; At dawn columns deployed and faced eastwards, the ends met, and the Boers were encircled as in a net and driven towards the Vaal River. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Klerksdorp-Schoenspruit and Lich- tenberg block house line, with surprising rapidity, made a manœuvre which placed a thousand Boers within...
LATER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
LATER &nbsp; &nbsp; Delarey and a number of Boers were to the extreme west and outside the boundaries daries of the eastward sweep. &nbsp; At Liebenberg several hundred Boers escaped by imitating the formation of a British column in motion. Commandant Kemp escaped through a gap on the right flank of the British. Only 12 Boers were killed. The prisoners, including, Landdrost &nbsp; Meethling, declare that De Wet and Ex- President Steyn recently visited and con- ferred with General Delarey. &nbsp; &nbsp; During the drive five Canadians became isolated from the general body and were outnumbered. They stoutly resisted for sometime but eventually four of the little band surrendered. The fifth, however, in- dignantly fought on until he received his death blow. The British troops were constantly in the saddle for 26 hours, and during that time &nbsp; were fit and fresh throughout. The Times, commenting on the drive, states that the ...
HOSPITAL SCANDAL. ELLIOTT EXECRATED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
HOSPITAL SCANDAL ELLIOTT EXECRATED Our strictures in last issue of THE SUNDAY TIMES on the puling potentate Elliott, of the Geraldton Hospital—a doctor by profession and a cad and curmudgeon by nature— created quite a sensation in Geraldton. And none too soon, for the head and front of this man's offending is, to be vulgar, "all over the shop." An enquiry is not only necessary but very urgent into this hospital run by this parvenu, Dr. Elliott. If there be an &nbsp; institution on earth that badly requires the searchlight of fearless, journalistic criticism turned upon it with full force, it is un- doubtedly this one. The case of the man Fulton mentioned by us is only one of a number that have roused popular resent- ment here. Fulton was a young Englishman of good family, who was sent down to Geraldton Hospital from the Goldfields suf- fering from typhoid fever. After a brief sojourn in the hospital, and before he had been cured, or anything like it, He Was Turned Adrift whe...
BROOKMAN'S BAROUCHE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
BROOKMAN'S BAROUCHE About 11 o'clock last night, opposite the Theatre Royal, a tramcar ran into the rear of Mr. W. G. Brookman's carriage. Fortu- nately the ex-Mayor was not in the vehicle at the time, and the driver was at the other end. The tramcar fared worse than the car- riage in the encounter. Princess Catherine Kadzwill been com- mitted for trial on 17 different charges of forgery at Cape Town. She has boen re- leased on bail. Jack Walsh, who has been very successful of late, has a lengthy string in work, which will be shortly strengthened by the addition of several more who have been spelling. Our Melbourne correspondent wires that Revenue is slowly progressing towards re- covery, and is now able to take gentle walk- ing exercise at Flemington. &nbsp; A strong syndicate has been formed to run &nbsp; a racecourse at South Perth, and probably fuller particulars will be available in our next issue. Ike Abrahams returned from the East during the week, well satisf...

BRIBERY IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
BRIBERY IN AMERICA. Yesterday's cables state : In the House of Representatives, at the instance of the Democrats, a committee has been appointed to enquire into the allegations of bribery made against the papers, Congressmen, and Government officials in connection with the Danish West Indies purchase. It is alleged that Captain Christmas was the secret agent of the Danish Government, and that he claims 10 per cent. of the pur- chase money to recoup him for his outlay. Mr. Abner McKinley is reported to be in- volved. The Hon. John Hay refused to re- cognise Captain Christmas as an agent in the transaction. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

INTERSTATE BOWLING. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. &nbsp; The first interstate bowling match, New South Wales v. South Australia, was played &nbsp; on the Adelaide Oval green to-day. After &nbsp; an exciting game New South Wales won by &nbsp; 98 points to 90. &nbsp; &nbsp; Our Sydney correspondent wired yester- day as follows :—Warrior II has at last struck decent form, for he won very easily at Hawkesbury last Saturday. He should have a chance in the Sydney Cup. In that &nbsp; race Lucknow, Patronage, Grasspan, Cale- donia, Pelissier, Brantwood, Wakeful, April Fool and Ace of Diamonds all have chances, &nbsp; and Lucknow or Pelissier may win. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Burswood proprietary will hold their next meeting on Saturday next, when the usual programme will be provided. Special trains will leave Perth at 1:40 and 2:30 p. m., returning at 6 p.m. sharp.

HELENA VALE RACING CLUB EASTER MEETING. SUNBROWN SECURES THE DOUBLE. BACKERS BALE OUT THEIR BOODLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
HELENA VALE RACING CLUB EASTER MEETING. SUNBROWN SECURES THE DOUBLE. BACKERS BALE OUT THEIR BOODLE. The Helena Vale Easter meeting was com- &nbsp; menced yesterday, and favored by fine &nbsp; &nbsp; weather; it commanded an excellent attend- &nbsp; ance. Everything went as merry as a mar- riage bell except for the poor unfortunate backer, who had a terrible time. Sunbrown won a double, but it was rather rough on both Loch Dee and Sunbrown to ask them to run off the York Handicap. The owner of Sunbrown did not want to run it off, and offered the owner of Loch Dee £40 and half the stake to cut it up, but he was pig- headed and declined, and the result was that he got the "Divil's own bating." Backers, however, hope to retrieve to-morrow. The finishes were close and exciting in two or three instances, and Albert Clerk, who is the acme of probity as far as we know him in a racing sense, had to face a rather rough and ragged rabble when he gave his decisio...

NEW GAOL REGULATIONS. "SUNDAY TIMES " SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
NEW GAOL REGULATIONS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "SUNDAY TIMES" SUGGESTIONS. &nbsp; &nbsp; Following the exposures made in our last &nbsp; issue concerning the disgraceful regulations &nbsp; &nbsp; which have hitherto made the Fremantle &nbsp; gaol a by-word of brutality, the Governor- &nbsp; in-Council has cancelled the regulations and &nbsp; an entirely new set has been gazetted during the week, to come into force on the 14th of April next. There are many of the improve- ments embraced in the regulations which &nbsp; have been insisted on in this journal from &nbsp; &nbsp; time to time. In our next article we intend &nbsp; to deal with the matter at greater length.
THE S.S. MANX FAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 30 March 1902
THE S.S. MANX FAIRY &nbsp; &nbsp; The popular steamer Manx Fairy will run to Garden Island this morning, starting from the William street jetty at 10 o'clock ; and in the evening will make a moonlight trip down the river. To-morrow (Easter Monday) she will run an excursion to Rottnest, and in the evening a moonlight trip will take place down the river. The much-travelled Taylor-Carrington Dramatic and Lyric Company opened their return Freemantle Season last evening in a brightly-written and cleverly-enacted drama entitled "A Blind Mother." The cast was excellently balanced and the applause well- merited. The staging and general effects betokened careful attention and experienced management in addition to which the seating of the audience and the general conduct the front of the house reflected credit on Mr. George Warren, the general business manager. For the remainder of the season, "The Right Man," "East Lynne," "The Jaypee," "Mizpah, and "The Octoroon" follow in r...
