PLAGUE OUTBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
PLAGUE OUTBREAK. In answer to a telephonic query at a late hour last night, Dr. Anderson informed the SUNDAY TIMES that Punch's case was ex- &nbsp; tremely serious, but that nothing definite could be stated regarding his chance of re- covery within at least 24 hours. Beyond this the doctor stated that he had nothing to report. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
THE CLAREMONT CONSTITUENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
THE CLAREMONT CONSTITUENCY. __ Last night in the Claremont Council Chambers Mr. Frank Wilson was presented with largely-signed requisition requesting him to contest the vacancy caused by the retirement of Mr. Sayer. There were about 100 people present presided over by Mr. Sandover. Mr. Wilson, in consenting to the request, delivered a lengthy speech, declar- ing that he was never in favor of the Espe- rance railway, nor would he snpport such a proposal. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
HARDINGE EXPLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
HARDINGE EXPLAINS. &nbsp; Mr. Hardinge, J.P., desires us to state &nbsp; that he never received any money from the &nbsp; bill cashed by the notorious Clara Parker for &nbsp; &nbsp; £5,000. He further states that it was not until Clara Parker sued Mr. Clarke civilly for damages that he interested himself in her legal proceedings, though he had long prior been on terms of intimacy with her. &nbsp; It was two years before that that he went to America with her as man and wife, and &nbsp; he had nothing to do with her abduction at &nbsp; the time of her trial. The Osborne Park Poultry Company are displaying, at the Perth Markets, a large and varied stock of fowls of all kinds. The manager, Mr. Curtis, has an extensive knowledge and experience of birds and game generally, and is also a very successful ex- &nbsp; hibitor, having already gained 98 prizes in &nbsp; W.A. shows. The plucky effort which is being ma...
FOOTBALL. THE AUSTRALIAN GAME. East Fremantle v. Subiaco. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
THE AUSTRALIAN GAME. East Fremantle v. Subiaco. Teams from the East Fremantle and Subiaco clubs met at the Association Ground yesterday afternoon before a fair attendance for what was considered an off match, the teams contesting occupying the highest and lowest positions respectively on the premier- ship list. Contrary to expectations the ground, though a trifle soft in places, was in good order, and some good play was wit- nessed. The crack Fremantle team tried some juniors, and, in consequence, Attewell, Parkin, Richardson, Clarke aud Cooper stood down. Subiaco had three of their best men away in Noonan, Bothroyd and Austin, all three being on the injured list, the latter having nearly severed a toe during the week. Bothroyd was pretty well re- covered, but the selection committee wisely refrained from forcing him to play. Noonan &nbsp; has not yet recovered from the shaking he got in the South Fremantle match. "Tiny" Fitzpatrick was umpire, and put up a very bad performa...
North Premantle v. West Perth. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
North Fremantle v. West Perth. On the Fremantle Oval yesterday after- noon the West Perth and North Fremantle &nbsp; teams met for the first time this season. &nbsp; There was a large attendance, and the &nbsp; ground, despite the recent heavy rains, was &nbsp; in splendid condition. Ward acted as &nbsp; umpire. From the bounce North assumed the &nbsp; aggressive, and soon had the West citadel in danger. Thomas attempted a goal but only &nbsp; a minor point resulted; Craig, Heindricks, &nbsp; Earnshaw and Pearce following suit. For a brief interval West placed their opponents on the defensive, and Wildy made an attempt for a major point but failed. West were again hard pressed, and Cullen, Kennedy, &nbsp; and Barnett put in some good defensive work. Noria, however, still pressed hotly and minor points recorded. Corkhill and &nbsp; Mitchell showed up, and then Bee, from the ruck, secured the sphere within...
South Fremantle v. Perth. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
These teams met on the Fremantle Oval yesterday. The ground was in good order and the weather fine. In the first half Perth played well together and succeeded in establishing a lead of 37 points to their opponent's 3 points. In the last half the South Fremantle rallied, and although hold- ing their own, they could not overtake the lead established by Perth earlier in the game. The Perth team won by 27 points. &nbsp; The following were the scores at the various stages :— Quarter time; Perth, 4.1 (25 points); South Fremantle, 2 behinds (2 points). Half time Perth, 6. 1 (37 points) ; South Fremantle, 3 behinds (8 points). &nbsp; &nbsp; Three-quarter time: Perth, 8.1 (49 points); South Fremantle, 2.5 (17 points). &nbsp; &nbsp; The final scores were— &nbsp; Perth 10.4 (64 points). &nbsp; &nbsp; South Fremantle, 5.7 (37 points). &nbsp; &nbsp; The goal-kickers were &nbsp; Perth : Hussey (3), Morphett (2...
CRICKET. AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN IN ENGLAND. THE OXFORD MATCH. HOME TEAM ALL OUT FOR 79. TRUMPER TOPS THE CENTURY. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN IN ENGLAND. THE OXFORD MATCH. HOME TEAM ALL OUT FOR 79. AUSTRALIANS TWO WICKETS FOR 227. TRUMPER TOPS THE CENTURY. &nbsp; LONDON, SATURDAY. The Australians commenced a match &nbsp; against Oxford University yesterday. The weather was dull, which had a great effect upon the attendance, notwithstanding that no play was possible on the previous day owing to rain, the wicket seemed firm. The Australian team was the same as in the Leicestershire match. Winning the toss, Oxford elected to take the wickets, Marsham and Dillon being the first batsmen. They made a very fair stand, and brought the score to 42 before a separation was effected, at which stage Mar- sham was caught at mid-off by Hopkins off Noble. &nbsp; Then a rot set in. Wyld after making 1 &nbsp; was caught by Saunders off Noble Dillon immediately afterwards was caught by Darling. Voss made 10 only when he was bowled by Armstrong. Four wickets were now down for 60. After lunche...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
TURF TATTLE. &nbsp; Tattersall's Club held a successful race meeting yesterday week, although the racing was not up to the average. Backers had all the best of the deal, as three absolute first favorites won, and the other winners were well supported. &nbsp; Egmont was made first favorite for the Jumpers Flat race, but had no chance at the finish with Williambury, who finished &nbsp; gamely and beat Egmont comfortably by a length. The Flying Handicap was one of the best betting races we have had for some time in this State, six out of the eight candidates being backed for a lot of money, the bookies offering 4 to 1 agst the field and 5 to 1 bar two. The race proved a good thing for the Bengal mare Brown Ribbon, who came away &nbsp; in the straight and won easily. As she had only 7.10 it is no wonder she proved suc- cessful. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Galloway Handicap proved a match between Leaflet and Biddle, the other three &nbsp; eng...
FLOTSAM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
FLOTSAM. &nbsp; There never was a game yet worth a rap For a rational man to play, &nbsp; Into which no accident or mishap &nbsp; Could possibly find its way." -ADAM LINDSAY GORDON. &nbsp; West have now twice bitten the dust in two tries, butt they'll get over that before the season is through. Perth beat them on Saturday 9.9 to 6.8 after what was a really good game, as they did last season, but the West won the rubber all the same. It was the Perth men's first premiership appearance at home, and it must be said that they favorably impressed onlookers. Oddly enough, two of their worst "off" men were Phillips and Jeffreys. When last season Phillips returned from the grave to the gay arena of Australian football, he had the touch of stiffness about him which athletes usually acquire after they give over heavy exercise. Before the season was through he was as nimble as ever, and because of that the writer reckons that he has still a season left, and by t...

The Sunday Times SUNDAY, MAY 25, 1902. MOLLOY'S NEW THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY, MAY 25, 1902 --- &nbsp; &nbsp; MOLLOY'S NEW THEATRE. &nbsp; MB. T. G. MOLLOY, posing as the &nbsp; patron of art, the builder of temples to Thespia, would make a fine subject for a Phidias. On Monday last he managed, by what means we will not stop to inquire, to fill two columns of a morning contemporary with eulogies on bis philanthropic zeal to confer on &nbsp; the city of Perth the pride of having another of his theatres. Unfortu- nately for his glory, we have had some experience of him as the proprietor of the Theatre Royal. When he now talks of raising a monument to Thespis &nbsp; of which the citizens will be eternally proud, and when he tells us that his &nbsp; devotion to this object is purely for our good, we can only smile. If ever on this earth Providence designed a man on the principle of getting a maximum of meanness and vanity &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; into the smallest ...
CHILD CONSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
CHILD CONSCRIPTION. The public will have been somewhat sur- feited with the abundance of leaders and sub-leaders which have appeared in the papers during the last fortnight lauding the energy with which the "cadet'' movement is being pushed in this State. The immediate spasm is due to the presence of Lieut-Colonel D. L. Henry, Commanding the Victorian Cadet Corps. But behind him are the secret moves of the Government and Cyril Jackson, of the Education Department. It is necessary to at once sound a note of warning, and to inform our readers that the spurt is part of a deliberate design to foster and extend the spirit of militarism in the Commonwealth. It is fresh in our memories that the Manchester Guardian alleges that one of the reasons for the resignation of Lord Hopetoun was the interference of State Governors, and inferentially State Govern- ments, with matters of defence—military &nbsp; affairs. This appearance in our midst of Lieut.-Colonel Henry seems like a confirma...
A SHARK J.P. ELLIOTT'S ELEVATION. HOW TENANTS ARE ROOKED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902
A SHARK J.P. ELLIOTT'S ELEVATION. HOW TENANTS ARE ROOKED. Sharks legitimately are voracious, and however much we may fear to encounter them in their natural habitat, the sea, we do &nbsp; not marvel at their insatiable greed for prey &nbsp; or the omniferous extent of their appetites. &nbsp; But the same nature exhibited by man towards man in the conduct of daily business is as revolting as it seems unnatural; and &nbsp; when the human shark is made a J.P. by the present phenomenal Government we cannot but marvel as we gaspingly ask, When will such wonders cease? Probably the worst kind of hungry human shark is the Westralian house and land agent. He is a creature entirely devoid of consideration and pity For his Victims. Taking advantage of the present scarcity of habitable tenements he places an iniquitous &nbsp; tax, which he pockets without scruple, on &nbsp; unfortunate house-hunters compelled to do business with him. The modus op...
