LATE SPORTING. ADELAIDE RACING. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
LATE SPORTING. ADELAIDE RACING. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. &nbsp; The S.A.J.C. Meeting was concluded to- &nbsp; day in fine weather. There was a large at- &nbsp; tendance, including Lord and Lady Hope- &nbsp; tonn and Lord and Lady Tennyson. Isis &nbsp; and Rickshaw were elected favorites for the Hurdles, and the former, nicely ridden by Baker, just won from the outsider Charon. Despite his welter weight, Caladonia was &nbsp; made an even money chance for the Fisher &nbsp; Stakes, but following the precedents of the &nbsp; race an outsider won easily from Clifton, &nbsp; who showed a £30 dividend. Ronald &nbsp; and Allegretto were the favorites in the Steeplechase, but the former baulked and the latter was outjumped by Mermaid &nbsp; and then beaten for a place at the finish. &nbsp; Punters would stand nothing but Flagship &nbsp; for the S.A.J.C. Handicap, though Holmes' &nbsp; &...

LATE SPORTING. FOOTBALL. THE AUSTRALIAN GAME. OPENING THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
LATE SPORTING. FOOTBALL &nbsp; -- THE AUSTRALIAN GAME. OPENING THE SEASON. Glorious weather favored the opening of the football season under the Australian rules, which took place yesterday afternoon. At each of the three matches played there was a large attendance, and the play on the whole was of a highly creditable character for so early in the season. At Perth there was the customary slackness of care, and hundreds of people had to wait for a long time after the hour set for commencing play or accept the alternative of walking. It is about time that the tram authorities learnt &nbsp; that the Australian game draws rather larger gates than local cricket, and a few &nbsp; extra cars between 2 and 3 o'clock in the afternoon would well repay the convenience offered to patrons of the game. The open- &nbsp; ing matches were those of West Perth (last year's premiers) against East Fremantle &nbsp; (the runners-up on that occasion), which resulted ...
WEST PERTH v. EAST FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
WEST PERTH v. EAST FREMANTLE. On the Cricket Association ground yester- day, before an encouraging attendance, the old rivals, West Perth end East Fremantle, &nbsp; met for the first time this season. There were several new men in each of the teams, the West Perth men having to fill vacancies for Plunkett, Wilmsburst, Strickland, Daly, Morphett, Stevens, and others who are not with them this season, and who contributed in no little degree to their pinning the pre- meriership last season. Amongst their new men Hoskings, a recruit from the Henley Park, played a slashing game, and should prove a strong item before the season is out. Gregory and Mudge from the juniors also shaped well, while Kennedy and Mossop gave promise of doing well p the near future. This lot, however, were not a patch on new men whom East Fremantle have secured, "Charley" Tyson and "Min" Palmer mak- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ing a couple any club in Australi...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
TURF TATTLE. &nbsp; &nbsp; The weather was against the W.A.T.C. May Meeting yesterday week, nevertheless the attendance was very fair, and those who made the journey were rewarded by witness- &nbsp; &nbsp; sing excellent racing, Handicapper Dakin for once adjusting the weights so well that backers were landed fairly in the mud. The Redcliffe Hurdles was only a question of a stand up with Williambury, as The Stag could not win over a mile and three- quarters if he had only a postage stamp to carry. The odds were never in doubt, as Williambury romped in half a furlong ahead &nbsp; of Kidman's coot.+ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Rockingham Handicap was a good &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; betting race, Fair Sex and Seria being most &nbsp; in demand, the former finishing up a strong favorite. The race proved a good thing for Gossaire, who notwithstanding his re...

FLOTSAM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
FLOTSAM &nbsp; "There never was a game yet worth a rap For a national man to play, Into which no accident or mishap &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Could possibly find its way." —Adam Lindsay Gordon &nbsp; ___ &nbsp; &nbsp; The W. A. Football Association held a special meeting on Wednesday evening at Fremantle, but there was very little im- portant business transacted. The board of management of the Friendly Societies' Re- serve, Perth, wrote notifying that they had a reserve available at Claremont, close to the railway station, which would be suitable &nbsp; as a playing ground, having the additional advantage of being fenced with 7ft close pickets, but the consideration of the matter was deferred. Fisher, one of the Perth Club delegates, came in for some condemnation from the chairman, who considered that he had no right to ventilate through the medium of the Press a matter which had been discussed at a meeting of the Associatio...
WRESTLING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
WRESTLING. A good deal of interest is being taken in the forthcoming Græco-Roman wrestling match between Harry Pearce, the Austra- lian champion, and Jack Pearn, who put up such a splendid "go" a few weeks since. Both men are training are for the contest, and as it will take place on turf this time Pearn is sure to stand a better chance than he did on the boards. The match is to, eventuate next Saturday, and is for £100 aside and the championship of Australia, the best three falls out of five. Pearn has the strength of an ox, and it will take all Pearce's science to withstand his fierce on- &nbsp; slaughts. At the time of writing the &nbsp; younger man is the favorite in the betting. ____ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

Christian is a man greatly respected in the athletic arena, his quiet unassuming manner bringing him hosts of friends, who should rally round him on the occasion of his benefit. Batger expects to see all his old friends, and new ones also, at 52 High-street, Fre- mantle. Tel. 307. &nbsp; Hughes and Doheny for prime hams and &nbsp; bacon. &nbsp;
TWO EQUINE HEROINES. LA CARABINE AND WAKEFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
TWO EQUINE HEROINES &nbsp; &nbsp; LA CARABINE AND WAKEFUL. BY THE CAULFIELDITE. The recent brilliant performances of &nbsp; &nbsp; Wakeful in Sydney have caused a comparison to be made between the daughter of Trenton &nbsp; and La Carabine, who till recently was con- sidered the best mare that ever graced an Australian racecourse. Of course every &nbsp; fresh idol is apt to shatter the old one, and &nbsp; the old saying, "The King is dead, long live the King," is as true with racehorses as with monarchs. That both Wakeful and La Carabine are two truly great mares cannot be gainsaid, and it may be many years before such a pair are again foaled in one &nbsp; decade. A glance at the career of each may enable us to judge of the merits of the pair &nbsp; &nbsp; and to decide as to which is to be placed &nbsp; foremost on the scroll of fame of Australia's Equine Heroines. La Carabine, who is by Carbine...
THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. "THE RUNAWAY GIRL." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
THEATRE ROYAL. "THE RUNAWAY GIRL." Delightful fooling. There is the "Dancing Girl" in two words. Of plot there is but a gossamer outline, in the dialogue there is not an original phrase of humor, and the music, pleasing and light as it is, leaves nothing behind it to woo the memory with its melody. But for all that the bur- lesque, for it is nothing else, is captivating. Scenery bright and bizarre, dresses rich and unique, acting and singing that go with elan from first to last, and comedians whose comicalities never fail must indeed charm; but it is all too shallow and too evanescent to do more than charm for the moment. If it does that per- haps it has achieved its end. It is the creature of the hour and no more. Miss Lillian Digges was "The Runaway Girl," and she achieved a great success from the opening smoking song, for which the im- mense audience that had assembled in the theatre applauded her heartily, down to the end, when "The Runaway Girl" turned up and the curtain fell. ...
CREMORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
With the departure of melodrama, spark- ling variety was turned on at full blast in &nbsp; this snug little play-house last Tuesday evening, a good house greeting the initial effort, the same excellent average being maintained throughout the week. In addi- tion to the old stars, Miss Emmie Smith adds lustre to the firmament, her ballads and coon songs being hugely to the taste of all concerned. The one and only Daisy Har- court, if anything more chic and cheery than ever, chortled gaily and often, the big &nbsp; audiences having a particularly warm corner &nbsp; in their hearts for this gifted little artiste. Among others, Jones Bros., likewise Charlie of that ilk, ditto George of the same clan, and various others too numerous and modest to be here set forth, sang and danced with exhilerating vigor and vim into popular favor. Special mention must be made of the "Taming of the Shrew" duet by George Jones and Hettie Williams. Last night the Delavales, trick cyc...
THE FORTHCOMING WRESTLING MATCH. THE TWO P[?] [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
The wrestling match which is to take place next Saturday night in the Perth Town Hall between Harry Pearce and Jack Pearn is exciting a tremendous amount of enthusiasm amongst lovers of athletics. A turf arena has been prepared for the occa- sion enclosed by ropes, and Sam Grimwood &nbsp; has agreed to referee the contest. Pearce is &nbsp; &nbsp; bent on winning this match, as it is his in- &nbsp; tention to then retire from wrestling unless that gigantic mass of manhood Sandow is &nbsp; willing to take him on. Pearce does not need any introduction. He has made his &nbsp; &nbsp; name, a name that will stick to him as long &nbsp; as the May blossoms will fall and the Great &nbsp; Fingal will turn out its dividends. He was &nbsp; instructor to the Victorian police and St. &nbsp; James' Grammar School, and though he is &nbsp; not a herculean monstrosity—what he looks &nbsp; in bicept...

BRICKLAYERS IN GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
BRICKLAYERS IN GOVERNMENT. "Bricklayer" writes :—Would you grant me space in your valuable columns to bring forward a grievance that now exists on Government build- ings regarding the employment of bricklayers. Within the last four years I have done, a good deal of work (bricklaying) for the Government, but I was so unfortunate as not to be able to continue, for the bricklayer laborers are doing the work for 8s. &nbsp; per day, and their work is done in a disgraceful manner, and good me- chanics cannot get a job. I think it &nbsp; is time the Chief Inspector's attention &nbsp; was drawn to this fact, as I am sure he would never allow the laborers to be doing mechanics' work. Dr. Hooper's Nerve and Brain Tonic will be found especially efficacious in nervous debility, from whatever cause arising. Pro curable at the W.A. Apothecaries Com pany's establishments only &nbsp; Edmund Dean and Co., Chemists, 415 Hay-street, have just received per mail &...
HOSPITAL HOCUS DODGES OF THE DOCTORS. CRIB OF CRUEL CORRUPTION. DRASTIC REFORM URGENTLY REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
HOSPITAL HOCUS DODGES OF THE DOCTORS. CRIB OF CRUEL CORRUPTION. DRASTIC REFORM URGENTLY REQUIRED. As we purpose in this article to deal with the hospital management, we must first &nbsp; acquaint the public with the personnel of &nbsp; that wretched machinery of control. It is no use wasting words on general condemna- tion. We desire to hit the proper parties —not in malice, but with a view to reform for the public good. We may as well here &nbsp; and at once designate the Hospital Board as the "Star Chamber" of the institution. We do not desire to take our readers back into ancient history, and therefore we will give &nbsp; the names of those responsible elected, or rather pitchforked or sugar-candied, into office at the last election. The following doctors were then put in as spokes to the flywheel of the clique's machinery of machi- nation: Drs. Tratman, Kelsall, Trethowan, Horrocks, Harvey, O'Connor, Randall, &nbsp; &nbsp; Kenny, M...
GREEDY GRASP FOR GOLD. ONE MAN ONE BILLET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 11 May 1902
The war-cry at electioneering time of those who aspire to fame in our Legislature has, for some considerable time past, been "One adult one vote." But we never hear those gentlemanly nobodies, whose one qualifica- tion at school was that they could recite "The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck," ad- vocating the policy of "One man one billet," which is of the most momentous importance to every father of a household living in this community. Their electioneering promises, once they are given, too soon become assimi- lated with the Oxygen and Hydrogen which passes through our lungs, and from thenceforward they become a portion of the medley of misunderstandings which are con- &nbsp; tinually tearing at the heartstrings of West &nbsp; Australian progress. Why do not they &nbsp; go in for such advocacy? Simply because &nbsp; most of them would have to take the beam out of their own eyes before they attempted to extract the microscopical mote out of the eyes o...
