TWICE-TOLD TALES. TWENTY-KRONER. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

TWICE-TOLD TALES. ! TWENTY-KRONER. I The surgeon has a weakness for men who make their living on the Bea. From the skipper of a Dogger Bank fishing-smack to the Btoker of a Cardiff tramp, from a Margate 'longshorem in to a crabber of the Scilly Isles, he embraces them all in a lusty affection. And this is not merely out of his own love of sals water, but because his diagnosis reveals the gentleman in them more surely than in the general run of his wealthier patients. ' A primitive gentleman, if you like/ Dr. Lincott will say, 1 not above tearing his meat with his fingers, or wearing the same shirt night and day for a couple of months on end, but still a gentle man.' As one of the innumerable instances which have built up hia conviction, Dr. Lincott will offer you the Twonry-Kroner story. As he was walking through the wards of his hospital he stopped for a moment by the bed of a brewer's drayman, who was suffer ing from an access of delirium tremens. The drayman's language was violen...

WITHIN THE RING. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

WITHIN THE RING. ! . ? I The proceedings in Parliament to date show how complete is the col lapse of Mr. Reid and his once solid valiant party. All the men of: any grit or fight and principle have dis carded him, and he is left with the poor third-rate men who he thought were the pillars of liberalism. Mr. Reid's own speeches against the Government have been flat, and onlv fourth-rate men have backed him up. It may be taken as a fact that as far as this Parliament is concerned Mr. Reid is marked, ' Not wanted 011 the voyage.' And now that the ex-Premier is down, observant people are reckon ing how much of the triumphs of the liberal or democratic cause during the last five years is due to Mr. Reid himself and how much to the reso lute fighters whom he has now lost. The fact is Mr. Reid is showing his natural poverty of political resource, and there remains not at his side a single man who can show him the track back to power. On the whole, it is a good thing that there are men in Pa...

An Old-Time Election. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

An Old-Time Election. in view of the electoral contes's wliich have just taken place, it may JSjjs?; not be uninteresting to recall the old-world methods of ' electing ' a yl-l't member of Parliament. Sir Francis |Kr Palgrave, in his ' History of the r. English Commonwealth,' gives a i% most lively, striking, and amusing &'? picture of one such event, We see |jv' 'n the crowd assembled round the M shire-oak the luisbandnien or churls, wearing the smock frock, which ||v survives in some rural districts to this day, collected in groups of five, comprising a foreman or reeve and four assistants. The sworn deputies or ' jurors ' from the hundreds form groups of twelve, having likewise each a leader or foreman. The third class of those who constitute a shire court is made up of the knights, | distinguished by their proud attire, I their tabards and gilt spurs. The »?

IN FRONT AND BEHIND. THE WEEK'S PROGRAMME. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

IN FRONT AND BEHIND. (By Valentine Day.) THE WEEK'S PROGRAMME. I The Criterion— His Natural Life. Her Majesty's — The Old Guard. The Royal — Women and Wine. The Tivoli— Variety Company. Cyclorama — Jerusalem & Illusions. I think Boer and Briton would diawjubt as good houses if it did not play down so terribly to tho prejudices of the unwashed Jingo. 1 Perhaps I am also prejudiced in leaning to Nod Holloway's perfor mance of Kruger, which appeared 't to me to be flawless. I am told that I styled Alfred Dampier, the other day, ' Charles,' possibly I had the character he is now playing in mind. He play s it with a stutter on the lines of his Talbot Ohamp neys, in Our Boys, which was pro duced at Melbourne Royal in '76 or thereabouts. Alice Lingard was the Mary Melrose, Eleanor Carey played the other girl, the late H. R. Harwood was, 1 think, the But terman, and Jenny Bryce (Mrs. Appleton) played Belinda. Horace Lingard probably played the other 'boy,' but I forget. I am a long ...

HANSARD EXTRACT. 'i (tf.S.TT. Brand.) j Mr. Norton : I shall have some thing to say in this House if the Govern ment does not soon inquire into the position of two or three banks in this city — I have only refrained from critioising them, and exposing what I know on the most reliable authority, on the advice of men like the Colonial Secretary. Mr. See : Not on my advice ! Mr. Norton : The hon. member has been so much embroiled in the bellicose, loyal, Mafeking business of late that he has forgotten many of the services which he has rendered to the country in other directions. Mr. Se : I did not discuss the question ! Mr. Norton : No, the hon, mem ber did not discuss the details ; but he gave me certain weighty and gocd reasons, without knowing the details of my information, for not taking a certain course, and I did not take it ; but unless the Govern ment does inquire into the condition of these banks very soon, we shall have a crash, and many more families, in spite of the protect...

The Human Sacrifice. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

The Human Sacrifice. I dreamed in the heart of the city 'Mid its heat and its burden of life, I groped my way to a garret Where filth aud famine were rife ; And the frail, fair form o£,a woman Was bowed in the awful strife. Cutting, and fixing, and stitching. With fev'risli and trembling hand, While tho great red drops of her life's blood Worked into each silken strand — And the song that she crooned to her baby Was, methought, ' The Better Land.' Then I Baw a giant strive fiercely To enter that garret bare, In his arms he carried a blood-red cross, Which soon he had fixed in there ; And then— O God ! I tried to shriek, But the sound die in the air. It was only a woman after all, That was nailed on that awful cross ; And Mammon demands the sacrifice Of Labour ; so what of the losa Of those deep red drops of human life, When paid to the King of Drosa P E. Giuham Simpson.

THINGS IN GENERAL. As promised in our last issue, the present number of The Elector is enlarged by four pages, an ar- | rangement that will continue to ?exist until, by tho force of circum stances, tho paper will have to be again further enlarged. No ex travagant claims aro made as to the merits, influence or circulation of thio paper ; it speaks for itself. Established several years back it ' took on ' from the first issue. Bold in the cause of democracy, plain in its language, just in its treatment to all, fearing no man, attacking no man except on public grounds, it has worked on, and worked hard, for the good of tho * commen people.' Outspoken, and sometimes, it may be, sarcastic, it has never sunk in the past, nor will it sink in the future, at any ' ~~~ rate so long as it shall remain f under its present proprietary and editorial control, to blasphemy or indecency.

As previously mentioned in the columns of The Elbci-or, the annual visits of the late Mr. George Rowe with his string of horses to Melbourne gave rise to the idea of having a Champion Race, in which all the leading: horaes of the colonies would compete. Tne idea having emanated from New South Wales, it was thought that tho race shoul I take place in that colony, and some , oirrespondence took place upon tha subject, but ultimately a mooting of sportsmen was held in Melbourne in March, 1859, and it was arranged that the race should take place at Fiemington on the 1st of October of the same year. The conditions of the race were drawn up, the sweep being £100 each for starters, with £500 added, three miles, weight-for-age, and the following list of intercolonial stewards appointed : — Victori...

BARRIER BITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 30 June 1900

BARRIER BITS. (By Sundry Barrierbiters.J The Broken Hill public schools' annual display took place on the 20th inst. The proficiency shown by the youngsters was simply mar vellous, and the spectators were more enthusiastic than at any pre vious demonstration on the Barrier. It almost eclipsed the ' Pretoria Demonstration,' which was an achievement no town in Australia could have surpassed. Two of the best behaved — unag- gressive— individuals who were amongst the crowd that assembled at the German Club, to sing patrio tic songs and break a few windows, on 'Pretoria night,' were prosecu ted and fined. Another instance of the 8ilver City ' justice.' The Port Augusta town council are indignant at the Government's action in promising support to the Broken Hill Proprietary Company in the construction of a line of railway to Point Lowley, whioh of course would exist at the expense of Port Augusfa.
