Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 3 March 1900

things in General. i , .The Bulletin is always plucky enough to attack those who have no means of defending themselves, and so in a recent issue it was courageous enough to jump on the prostrate body of Dr. Zillmann just because he happened to be down and unfortunate. Its published ' colleotion of facts ' concerning that gentleman were a tissue of unmiti gated falsehoods. | Henry Duff Traill D O.L., was 57 when he died. The editor of Literature, he was originally a barrister but abandoned it for a position on the Pall Mall Oa%ette . Thence he drifted on to the St. James ' Gazette , then to the Daily Telegraph and Saturday Levtew. He left the latter in order to edit the Observer. He also edited the publication called ' Social England.' He was author of ' Central Govern ment;' essays on Sterne, Coleridge., Shaftesbury, Strafford, William III, and the Marquis of Salisbury ; the New Lucian, and Recaptured Rhymes. The death of Captain T. Summer - bell was very sudden. On Thurs day week, ...

A Bogus Agitation [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 3 March 1900

A Bogus Agitation. There seems to be a va*t amount of igGorance, misunderstanding and pumped-up enthusiasm of a popularity-hunting kind displayed in the agitation now going on against the extension of wharfage accommodation on the shores of Woollomooloo Bay. The Daily Telegraph , foremost in the attempt to «?rab Hvde Park for railway uses, has now the consummate impudence to write leaders in de nunciation of'tne ' Proposed Domain Grab.' Swely the D.T. must take the people for fools and idiots I Does V3.t everyone know that the people a'e ? now uncomplainingly debarred , by its occupation for the uses of boat sheds, a quaran tine wharf and othor purposes from that pirt of the water front age which it is proposed to convert into wharves ? And further, will it not be thrown open to the people f ' the first time in many years by * » sumption for wharfage, while V slopes from which they are now ^ded will be thrown into the NV ?

THE PATRIOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 3 March 1900

THE PATRIOT. Who is the Patriot ? He,, Who strideth, sword in hand, To reap the fields he never sowed, For hia own Fatherland ! Who, sweeping human rights aside, Sots up the cross-shaped Tree, And while the Christ is crucified, Bid 8 all the Thieves go free ! All for his country's sake, His Gtad, his Lord, his home, Itlv'n ao the Roman stalked abroad And claimed the world for Rome ! Ev'n so the patriot nations still In emulation toil, C onfront each other, shriekingshrill, And hungering for the spoil. — Robert Buchanan.

MRS. TOMMY ATKINS IN REPLY. Now Mister Rudyard Kipling, you're a diamond of a man, And Tommy never owned a better friend ; I am certain you will do the very uttermost you can To 'elp the girls who love 'im to the end. But charity's a hinsult (don't you think so ?) to the wife And the nippers, two or three, or four or five, Of the soljer wot is ready to lay down 'is bleeding life, Or 'obble 'ome three-parts of 'im alive.

to hie ALDEitivm of SUBUItBlN MUNIOIIWUTIES. Dear Sirs, I have the honour of again addressing you -with a view of enlisting your sup port in my candidature for re-election us one of the suburban representatives on the Water and Sewerage Board. As a contractor I constructed seven miles of Sydney water supply tunnels nud canal, and the knowledge and ex perience thus gained in the work has been useful to the Board, and at times, I claim, it has been profitable to it. As your representative, I have en deavoured at all times to conserve your interests, and attend to your requests, although it is difficult to always meet your wishes, especially when they are in opposition to the Act of Parliament administered by the Board ; but I can fairly claim to have obtained a reason able measure of consideration for sucn of my constituents as have approached the Board through their representatives thereon. And apropos of this I may say at once that I am iu favor of increasing the suburban representa...

Merriwee ? 1 Sea Hor&e ? ? 2 Disfigured ? 3 Z^ph, the dam of Palmer, who recently won the Futurity Stakes and Orrong Two Year-Old Handi cap, is full sister to Ringmaster, who was taken to England some years ago by Saville, who trained The Assyrian when he won the Melbourne Cup in 1880. Ring master, who was virtually a pony, was not by any means a star in the colonies, but he ran fairly well in the old country, and his success had no doubt a good deal to do with the demand that at onco set in for Australian horses. It is generally supposed that he was the first of the Australian horse con tingent who invaded Eagland but the Victorian steeplechaser Dutch man led the van in the late six ties. Both he and his trainer Moran had however been disquali fied by the V.R C.,, and their action being endorsed .by the English Jockey Club Tho Dutch man was never allowed to r...

Mr. Quong Tart in Business. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

Mr. Quong Tart in Business. , Comparatively speaking, very few people outside the metropolis know the extent of the business in this oity which is presided over by that popular genius, Mr. Quong Tart. It is almost umver sally known of course that he is to the front always in any charitable or_ bocuu movement, and very few men i'deed can engineer a success in mis iino uouun than he can. It is, however, in cater ing for the daily wants of the people of the metropolis and visitors to Sydney that Mr. Tart shows his genius for business management. No more successful ventures are to be found in Sydney than Quong Tart's Tea Rooms and tho new and elaborate Elite Dining Hall in the Queen Victoria Markets. The King-street entftblishraent has long held the first place ai a restaurant, the patronage being splendid every day of the year. The management has won this patronage and nothing else. Visitors get the best of everything served with conspicuous cleanli ness and most courteous attention. W...

The Mew South Wales Wheat Market. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

The Mew South Wales Wheat Market. It is a very satisfactory thing for tbe wheat growers of New South Wales to find that as much attention is now boing paid to the grain market as has for years been paid to the great wool interests, and it may fairly be stated that our farmers need have no fear in the future of a cramped or unsatisfactory markets. ?, I Of course the larger production of wheat % in this country and the more systematic harvesting have largely contributed to the lifting of the wheat market to its present important aud growing position. But not a little credit belongs to some larger firms in Sydney who have been identiflod with the general produce trade. Of these firms, mention may well bo made of one of the leading financial and business houses in theN produoe trade, viz., the Australasian Mortgage ana Ageucy Company, Loftua and Bridge Streets, in this oity. Thia financially powerful and influential company has already done a deal for th® produce trade by providing chea...

Twice-Told Tales. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

Twice-Told Tales. I George Meredith once took rooms with the Rossetti family at Queen's House, Oheyne Walk. Soon after, he drove over to Chelsea from Mayfair to call on the poet-painter and inspect his 'diggings.' 'It was I past noon relates Mr. Meredith. 1 Jxoeeetti had not yet risen, though it was an exquisite day. On the breakfast- table on a huge dish rested five thick slabs of bacon upon whioh five rigid eggs had slowly bled to death! Presently Rossetti appeared in dressing gown, with slippers down at heel, and devoured the dainty repast like an ogre.' This was quite enough for Meredith who sent at once a cheque for a quarter's rent and remained in Mayfair. He was a 'bus driver and on the night of the last general eleotion he staggered into the billiard room and threatened to leave evi dence of his science all over the building unless someone took him on ao 100 up. The 'benchers' we e dumb with amazement. At last one of them plucked up suffi cient courago, and the game com menc...

The Coming Easter Carnival. THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S ANNUAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 10 March 1900

The doming Easter Carnival. THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S ANNUAL SHOW. Everything indicates that the coming show at Easter of the Agricultural j Society will eclipse all its predecessors and ensily outstrip anything of the kind held in any other colony of the group. The Council of the Society have kept in view and have accomplished the one great end of making their prizes of such a cash value ns to bo worth competing for This has secured wide competition, for even second or third prices make a fair contribution towards expenses. The total prtee list represents £4,000 cash, a result not even dreamt of a few years ago, and hence successful exhibitors will have an award of good, hard cash value and of high importance as regards 1 oertifloate of quality. There is a big increase in prize money, notably £'250 for horses and £250 for stock with other kindred increases. This year the prize plums have attracted the Melbourne and Adelaide exhibitors of horseflesh, and thus for the first time is ...

Things in General. In these columns the filthy ex ^ ternal condition of the Town Hall, its bescrabbled walls, filthy areas, aud rubbish heaps have boen m often commented on. In tbe Sunday Times, 'Anti-Flea' writes to complain that its floor is wholly ^ - given up to pulex-irritans while fc. the cane chairs are all reserved for the use of the Norfolk Howard family. This is not surprising. The whole building is virtually neglected. The blaok duet which lies on tbe moulding which takes the place of a skirting- board has been aggregating since the year 1890 and the corners everywhere are full of dirt. The carpets pro bably have never been itaken up since they were put down and all the arrangements have a fine old Hibernian free and easy flavour ing. Just now when the Mayor is urging the citiz ens to be oleanly and to wipe out rate, flsas, and the filth germs which attract disease, these remarks on the con dition of the great centre of xnuni cipalism have a distinctly ' Ph^&i- oi...
