RETRENCHING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

RETRENCHING.   BY DRYBLOWER.   The Eastern States are wrapped in gloom, Poor Melbourne moans in woe, While Sydney, like a busted boom, Expires to music slow. In fact, from every capital Sepulchral sobs arise,   As when some cash-advancing pal Unfortunately dies. For like a bolt from Heaven shot Or fiat from the bench Lord Hopetoun, like a canny Scot,     Has started to Retrench. On Federation we were set, On Union we were bent, And in the East the fat they get— The bones are Westward sent. At banquets they disport in silk, We scarcely get the smell ; They get the kernel and the milk,   We get the empty shell. Our costly toy we scarcely saw   Ere came this parting wrench, When Hopetoun closed his pawky paw   And started to Retrench.       And now the odds are fairly long That this retrenchment spreads, For "Salary's" the ceaseless song With al...

SANCTIMONIOUS SUNDAY. RULED BY GEORGE III. RATIONAL REST AND RECREATION. THE "WEST" AND THE WOODS-WILLIAMSON CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

THE "WEST" AND THE WOODS-WILIAMSON CASE On Wednesday week in the No. 2 Supreme Court a case of considerable interest came on for hearing. On Sunday, the 16th of February last, the Woods-Williamson   Dramatic Company gave a performance of "Barabbas" in Her Majesty's Theatre at Kalgoorlie and an admission fee to the entertainment was charged. Mr. Woods had been informed by the police that if the play were performed on the Sunday night and payment taken at the doors he would be prosecuted. He did perform, he did take money, and the action on Wednesday week, therefore, was taken to recover penalties under the Act 21 George III., cap 49. Mr. Forbes appeared for Mr. Woods and the Attorney-General for the Crown.     The Attorney-General maintained that the Act, which had been held to be in force in Victoria and New South Wales, was also applicable to the State of Western Aus- tralia. His Honor the Chief Justice, after hearing evidence and argument, ga...

S[?]PENSION OF A CLERK OF COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

Mr. Pombart, who had been several years     in the Civil Service as a clerk of courts, has     been suspended in consequence of certain charges made against him by Mr. Rushton, cheif clerk of the Perth Local Court. It would appear that for a considerable time there has been friction between Pombart and Rushton. This gave rise to several con-   fidential reports being made by Rushton against Mr. Pombart, at a time, too, when   he was laid up and under medical treatment. Immediately those confidential reports (there should be no confidential reports in the Civil     Service) were brought to light, Mr. Pombart asked to be suspended in other that he might   Prove His Innocence. This at that time was refused him by the Attorney-General. In consequence the case     was to have been brought before Parliament, and a select committee was applied for, ...

ALIEN AUSTRALIA. CHUMMY CHINESE. ASIA MINOR OF THE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

ALIEN AUSTRALIA. CHUMMY CHINESE.   BY MINDERRINIA     Away up in the the tropic zone, in a bend in the continent, lies the city of Palmerston, the official and trading centre of the Nor- thern Territory. It is prettily situated, on   the shores of Port Darwin, a magnificent space of land-locked harbor, with accommo- dation for all the fleets of the world and enough water then to spare for any odd fleets not yet born. Most southerners know that such a place exists; few, unless they     have lived there awhile, really know much about it. It is the Asia Minor of the Anti- podes. Asiatics are round you everywhere, intruding their black, brown or yellow faces at every turn. When you arrive in a   steamer you are driven to your hotel as likely as not   By a Chinamen;         your bedroom boy is a Chinaman; the cooks   and ...

For the Farmers. RURAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

[The SUNDAY TIMES will be glad to re- ceive from its country readers, for publica- tion in its agricultural columns, voluntary contributions of practical interest, which will be used with or without the names of the writers. Such communications, em- bodying the results of personal experience in farm life in any of its branches, great or small, with the lessons suggested by old methods or the moral taught by new experi- ments, will prove instructive and valuable. Any farmer who has anything of interest to any relating to his vocation will be welcome. RURAL TOPICS. Seeding time. Even if surface of fallowed land be dry continue sowing. Early-sown crops are usually more prolific than those sown late. Pickle wheat with blue-stone liquor before sowing as a preventative for smut, or what some call bunt.   If drill culture is practised much seed will be saved. In any case, unless for a hay crop, sow thinly. If a crop is intended for hay at least a quarter of a bushel more to th...

ORCHARD WORK. HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. No. L [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

ORCHARD WORK.   HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. Br J. C. BLACKMORE and S. I. FETCH (New Zealand Experts). No. I. In response to numerous requests for in- formation, the following hints were written with a view to assist those who may be con- templating fruit-growing, and who may not have much practical acquaintance with the subject, rather than for the experienced or- chardist. People begin fruit-growing under   so many different circumstances that it is very difficult to give instructions applicable to all. Therefore, the task is to give some- what briefly practical hints on the general requirements and operations. Many other things must also be taken into consideration before planting an or- chard. Success can only be achieved by making a right start. You may begin on a small scale. A small orchard, if the planter is inexperienced, is safer to begin with than a larger one. It is best to confine operations to an area which is sufficiently within the Means and Abi...

BUSINESS NOTICES. ___ Beautiful weather is now being vouchsafed   us and a pleasant drive in the bracing air is most enjoyable. One of the favorite places to drive to is the Sandringham Hotel on the   Guildford-road, where all wants are sure to be supplied. This splendid hotel is replete     with every convenience, and affords the visitor enjoyment in the contemplation of the charming scenery surrounding it, while boating and fishing can be indulged in.

ADVANTAGES OF DRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

ADVANTAGES OF DRAINING.   1. The temperature of the soil is raised. When under water the sun's heat is spent   in evaporating the water, and this heat         LEADING PIPE AND STONE DRAIN.   ought to have gone to warm both the soil and the crop in the soil. 2.

A DIVORCE SCANDAL. AN ENGLISH CRICKETER IN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

A DIVORCE SCANDAL AN ENGLISH CRICKETEER IN COURT   Mrs. Alice Quaife, who sought a divorce recently, charged her husband. Walter Quaife, a professional cricketer with cruelty, which he denied, and misconduct, which he admitted. The respondent was formerly a member of the Warwickshire eleven, and is an athletic outfitter carrying on business at Birmingham. Mrs. Alice Quaife said she was married to the respondent in 1892. They lived happily for about a year after the marriage. She then taxed him with familiarity with a Miss Lohmann. She afterwards re- ceived a letter from another lady, asking her whether Mr. Walter Quaife was a married man. The respondent told her he would give her £2 a week if she would leave him. He called ber An Idiotic Fool, and said any woman of spirit would have left him two years ago, and that no power either in heaven or earth would stop him, and that he would live or die for Miss Lohmann. That was said a week before he left her. He also told her ...

COLLIE, DONNYBROOK, AND BUSSELTON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

COLLIE, DONNYBROOK, AND BUSSELTON. BY OUR TRAVELLING CORRESPONDENT. For some time past a considerable amount of dissatisfaction has existed amongst the residente of Cellie on account of the coal mines working   half time. From inquiries made when in the town, I heard of several reasons for this, the principal being the scarcity of tracks to take the coal away. I am of opinion that if the truck question was investigated it would be found that the timber in- dustry was being specially favored to the loss of the coal industry. I was informed that Messrs. Bedlington and Evans, managers of the mines respec- -tively at Collie, have repeatedly laid the matter before the authorities, a Mr. Ewing, the member, has also tried to get extra trucks without success. I am positive if Mr. Briggs or Mr. J. W. O'Halloran, the loco. coal in- spectors. were put on their oath, they would state that the mine managers were constantly complaining About the Trucks. I asked a dozen engine-drivers...

KALGOORLIE KETCHUP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

BY KURRAJONG.     It is part of the Kurrawang company's policy to be lavishly and recklessly hospit-     able, in a damn-the-expense, Lucullus-like     way, to everybody they can get hold of, from Ministers to Labor members. The presence of Dr. Jameson on the Fields was, no doubt, the reason why that genial epicurean, Hedges, decided to make last   Sunday a field day in the way of free chicken and gratuitous champagne. Invitations were issued broadcast to local members of Parlia- ment, mayors, councillors, mine managers, and otner persons of light and leading to come and inspect the company's wood line, and a good half hundred rolled up in response   and boarded the special train that left Kal- goorlie at 10 in the morning. The gathering was, as the reporters say, a large and repre- sentative one (ranging from Warden Fin-   nerty down to the representative of the Bunb...

NORTHERN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

It is astonishing to see the ? apathy with which the voters of both sexes of this district treat elections to the Upper House. The late contest for the Central Province is a case in point. Although there were three candidates in the field the con- test created less excitement than a dog- fight in a Fitzgerald-street ?. Apart   from the actual barrackers, no one seemed to care a Commonwealth curse who got in. People who had nothing to do or who wished to while an hour or two away from the eternal whisky and billiards, sauntered aimlessly in to hear Dicky Haynes orate. The same stolid old crowd patronised the canny sewing-machine salesman's show.   And the identical "push" lounged along to listen to Abe Cantor murdering the King's English. Each and every one of the postu- lants was similarly and equally cheered and boohooed, but not a particle of intelligent interest was taken by anyone, with or with- out a vote. Yet, so long as the present constitution obtai...

CR[?]/ [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

A good audience assembled on Friday to   farewell the capable little variety company, who, under the management of Messrs.   Jones and Lawrence, have so cheerily disported themselves on the classic boards of the Murray-street house of entertainment. Last night an excellent dramatisation of Mrs. Beecher Stowe's famous negro novel, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," was staged to a full house, the beautifully pathetic and dramatic story being both excellently played and mounted. With the story all are familiar, the sorrows and joys of Uncle Tom being household worlds the world wide over. The caste, which includes Mr. F. C. Mortyne, the Misses Wiseman and South, and Messrs. Lewis, Bartlett and Dalziel, acted in a thorough and capable manner, demonstration of applause punctuating the perform-   ance from start to finish. The same bill will hold the boards throughout the week.

COMSTABLE [?] THE FREMANTLE OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

CONSTABLE ZEITSCH. THE FREMANTLE OUTRAGE. Our readers will have observed the notices in the daily papers stating that Constable Zeitsch, of Fremantle, has been exonerated on the charge preferred against him by a citizen of Fremantle of having participated in the shocking obscenity of the contingen- ters on the eve of the departure of the troop- ship Englishman. We have made every effort to see the papers containing the evi- dence and reports, but after the implied promises of permission both at the office of the Premier and the Commissioner of the Police, we have been refused the privilege. Considering the public importance of the case, we consider this as very extraordinary. However, there is now a duty placed upon us. Those who witnessed the outrage and complained about it were not called at the inquiry held in private and kept secret, and it devolves upon us now in our next issue to state why, and to support the reason by a full statement of the witnesses' version of the affair. ...

BEA[?]FORT-STREET BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

BEAUFORT-STREET BRIDGE. Whilst we are so long waiting for the   William-street crossing, there may be time   to pay a little attention to the bridge in Beaufort-street. Since additional tram routes leading off Barrack-street have been opened, the tram traffic of the bridge and round the sharp curve has been some- thing enormous, and there are experts who say that the bridge is now unsafe. And yet pedestrians and vehicular travellers are compelled to use this block to the thorough- fare. Some time ago Parliament dealt with   this question and authorised the construc- tion of a wide and safe construction over the railway line in substitution for the present one, but with the Works Department's usual dilatoriness there the matter rests   and look as if it were to rest till doomsday. Keely and Co's fine American footwear for ladies is the neatest, most durable, and cheaper now than ever.

Our Sunday Serial "THE WOMAN PAYS." CHAPTER III. THE GUIDING NORTH STAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

Our Sunday Serial   "THE WOMAN PAYS." By GERTRUDE ATHERTON. CHAPTER III. THE GUIDING NORTH STAR. Famous and wonderful is this Pitts- burg ; famous for many things, won- derful in many ways. The hills that cluster about have showered upon it wealth at which all the world wonders. To the left upon some high look-out place, the Ohio starts upon its long journey to the Gulf ; to the left the waters of the Allegheny come rolling down, and mingled with them those of the Cone- maugh, that once scattered along its path of raging thousands of the bodies of the Johnstown dead. Behind, through quieter valleys, come the Monongahela and the Youghfogheny, whose name no one not Pittsburgh trained can pronounce. And left and right and to the rear, along these   leys and over the very hilltops, stretch rows and groups and clusters of those wonderful little industrial towns that have made Pittsburgh the headquarters of the world's latest, greatest group of Crœsus millionaire...

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 18 May 1902

CHAPTER IV. THE BITTER FIGHT WITH COLD. Sometimes in the keen cold of Nor- thern winters morning dawns on the stark form of some poor unfortunate who has frozen to death while strag- gling against night and darkness and faculties benumbed and senses blunted. The fugitives knew all the horrors of such a fight with the fatal chill in the night when they followed the North Star towards freedom—and to death. For hours they plodded along. Then, grown desperate and fearing that they might fall down and die upon the road, they broke into a country schoolhouse. It furnished shelter from the wind, but bleak com- fort. They dared not light a fire, though perhaps they might have done so safely. There was but one line of railroad in the great stretch of farm- ing country between Economy in the West and Culmerville in the East, that lay before them. In that wide zone of quiet homes few people would be stirring in the early morning hours of a bitter night, and any that there might have been would...
