A HILL CLIMB. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1912
A HILL CLIMB. Mr. Harold H. Harper, of Orange, writes to the "Sydney Morning Herald' as follows: Sir,—Referring to Mi'. Astley's climb on Oberon side of Je nolan -Caves Hill, repbyted in your paper, I 'would like to state that 1 was present, and can certify to the genuineness of the performance; and, whilst not wishing to hurt Mr. Hen derson's feelings, I would like to point out I was positively assured by the officials of the Caves House that this hill has never been climbed by a motor cycle. One of the officials has been 27 years in the caves, and it is hardly likely that the climb mentioned by Mr. Henderson took place,'b>%'fhis time. Again the mention of a 2% h.p. ma chine having climbed this hill dis counts-the whole report, as that power of motor has no chance. I have had very extended experience in this and other States, and think Mr. Astley's climb a woijderful one. Even granting a Zenith might have climbed the mountain, the Rudge must remain as the first single-glared mac...

PICTURE SHOWS AND PLAYS. DEAN OF NEWCASTLE'S "MORAL CANKER." [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1912
I'ICTUJtE SHOWS AND PLAYS. DEAN OF NEWCASTLE'S "MORAL CANKER." Picture shows and the melodrama were denounced at the Anglican Cathe dual ou Sunday night by the Dean of Newcastle, Dr Golding Bird. "I have, during the past few weeks" the Dean said, "had brought under my notice not one or two, but three cases in which children, not satisfied with going once a week to picture shows, have stolen money in two cases from their parents, and in the other case from an employer, so that they may go two or three times a week. Even if the pictures were absolutely good this craze for luxury—juvenile intem perance shall I call it—which is so prominent among the juvenile popu lation of Newcastle, is deplorable! How can our young people be taught high ideals when they are presented with cheap, neurotic representations in which mock heroes are made of criminals. ■ "I say there is a grave danger to our public morality in this craze for fictitious excitement and luxury. It is not confined to any one cl...

Mr. Joseph, who' is 31 years of age, was at one time an amateur runner, but has done little in that way for some years. From Bega to Candelo, 14 miles, he came at . a great pace. On the advice ot' friends he took the journey steady after that, and finished strong coming up Maybe street. A motor car accompanied him, and supplied him with food and drjnk. Mr. Joseph is said to have benefited to the extent of £100 by his walk.
