SIR WILLIAM BUTLER ON CROMWELL. LECTURE AT THE IRISH LITERARY SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

SIR WILLIAM BUTLER ON CROMWELL.   LECTURE AT THE IRISH LITERARY SOCIETY. Recently at the Society of Arts, Adelphi, a lecture was delivered under the auspices of the Irish Literary Society by General Sir Wm. Butler on 'The Cromwellian Wars in Ireland." There was a very large attendance. Mr. Barry O'Brien, in the unavoidable absence of Mr. York Powell, Professor of History, Oxford University, pre- sided, and among those present were Mrs. John Richard Green, Judge Adams, Mr. Wilfrid Blunt, Dr. Hous- ton, K.C., etc. Sir William Butler, in the course of his lecture, gave a lengthy and graphic account of the events in connection with the civil wars, and the ruth- less campaign carried out in Ire- land by Cromwell, who, he observed, was perhaps the most extraordinary man ever born in England. Dr. Gar- diner said that Cromwell had given     £600 towards the expenses of carrying   on the Campaign in Ireland, thus showing his disinterested z...

PERTH LICENSING BENCH. AND THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

PERTH LICENSING BENCH. AND THE POLICE. Michael Fitzpatrick writes :—I will be more brief this time than I was when I wrote you several months ago on this subject, when, owing to the     length of my letter, you could not find room for its insertion. This time I will confine myself as near as possible to asking the assistance of your valu- able journal in gaining redress from the Government for the very serious injury done me through the tactics of police and the Perth Licensing Bench in regard to an eating-house licence. In the spring of the year 1898 I got a building erected on a piece of land I owned, and still own, at the north- west corner of Mends-street and     Suburban-road, South Perth, and     started as vendor of temperance drinks, fruit, etc., being the pioneer of this line of business in this locality.   After a few months I was Told by a Constable   that I would have ...

RAILWAY MISMANAGEMENT. SADD[?]E THE RIGHT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

RAILWAY MISMANAGEMENT SADDLE THE RIGHT MEN. W. McIvor writes:—Some time   back I wired from the Fre- mantle Post Office as follows:—"To His Worship the Mayor, Town Hall, Perth: Saddle right men; the   Rotheram-Trigg coterie primarily res- ponsible major portion mismanagement. (Signed) W. MCIVOR, South Terrace."   And for which I paid one shilling. I   would like to know why this wire was suppressed at the meeting, no mention   being made of it in either of the daily papers, which reported the meeting in their next day's issue. Probably the   Mayor can explain, I had fully in- tended being present at that meeting,   and I guess would have made things lively. I was, however, prevented through unforeseen circumstances.         Hence I did what I considered the   next best thing—sent the wire     above, and ...

MILLIONARIE MORGANS. AND CANTEEN CAMPBELL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

MILLIONAIRE MORGANS AND CANTEEN CAMPBELL.   Philosophers tell us that it is in little things that the reputably great show the shallowness and littleness of their character. A. E. Morgans is an illustration in point. A little while ago he was on terms of cordial intimacy with Charles Moir, popularly   known on the Fields as Charlier Moir, where though still a young man, he is looked upon as an old identity. Charlie, like most young men of enterprising genius, has had his "ups and downs," and during the last "down," as   friend for friend in adversity, Morgans lent him £10. without any conditions of repay- ment or interest. In fact, the loan was granted as two equals assist each other.   But Mr. Moir's ill-luck being more persistent than usual, he resolved to shuffle the cards   of fate by joining the contingent next to   start for South Africa. By this same token   Morgans, the millionaire, at...

KALGOORLIE KETCHUP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

BY KURRAJONG.         Parturiunt montes; nascetur ridiculus mus. The Goldfields-Esperance Railway League have evolved a nice little petition, which is to be signed by representatives of all public bodies from latitude 28 to the southern coast line; from the site of the proposed rabbit- proof fence to the Never-never country, and then presented to tha hard-hearted Pharaohs of the Groper Parliament. What the league are going to do after Parliament has acknow- ledge the receipt of the petition, and passed on to the consideration of the Dog Act Amendment Bill or whatever happens to be the next item of the notice-paper, no man knoweth. Perhaps they will send a dele- gation to the Commonwealth Parliament and demand to be heard at the bar of the House, or, as an alternative, they may formu- late proposals for a boycott, as far as is feasible, of West coast products. Or they   may call into being a new party in the State Assem...

CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION. SHORTHAND WRITING SHOTS[?] The "West" Cheekmated. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

The "West" Checkmated.   "One man one billet," is a sound demo- cratic principle, but the West Australian, with Hackett's Weld Club entanglements and Harper's apples, has no room for   democracy, neither have some of the report- ing staff. When the Civil Service Commis- sion was mooted, the shorthand writer scented a good thing and, with keen busi- ness instinct, they followed the trail with avidity. One of them, a party by the name of Keeley, of whom Mr. Archibald has some recollections, made strong running for it. He had previously made a compact with the West Australian reporting staff to     Whack the Work and the proceeds with them. Keley was at one time a member of the West reporting staff, and now he is secretary of that narrow organisation of hard-shell, hide-bound con- servatism known as the West Australian Political League, so to blind the fact that the West reporting staff were scheming for   a Government sh...

THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. "THE LADY OF OSTEND." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

'THE LADY OF OSTEND." Farcical comedies whose motif does not   depend on cases of mistaken identity are rare; those which are entirely original in their design are rarer still, and thoswe whose denoument comes as a diverting and novel and wholly unlooked for surprise are rarest of all. "The Lady of Ostend" embodies all three qualities, and is full of more spon- taneious fun and hearty bursts of merriment than any of the many farcical with which Perth has been deluged lately. It would be unfair to develope the plot to the public further than to say that it is written round the surreptitious use of the ci-     nematograph upon married men who have placed themselves in comprising positions and the fun is derived through the wives of the culprits discovering their hus-   band's folly. The laughter which it excites   flows from new sources, attacks you in fresh places, and seldom flags. If there is a fault it is that the fa...

FREMANTLE LYRIC CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

FREMANTLE LYRIC CLUB The Fremantle Lyric Club's production of   Pinero's farcical comedy on Wednesday and Thursday proved most enjoyable. The stag-   ing and general interpretation were much better than the average amateur show, and the audience though critical were evidently pleased, applause being long and remarks decidedly complimentary. Everybody con- nected with the club deserves praise for   individual work in the various capacities necessary to the success of the "show" as a whole. It can be confidently stated that the production "La Fille de Madam Angot" will . be looked forward to by Fremantle playgoers.

CREMORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

CREMORNE. To audiences, alternately delighted and tearfully sympathetic though always tho-   roughly appreciative, 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' has been presented during the present week,   the clever cast making the dramatisation of Miss Beecher-Stowe's world-famed novel a stage sermon calculated to make mankind   in general more kindly and considerate by the forcefulness of its intensely human interest and pathos. Of the merits of those concerned in the production, with out limited space it would be impossible to deal justly, but the "Topsy" of Miss Fanny Wiseman must be here singled out for an affectionate pat on the back, or whatever portion of that mercurial little lady is devoted to complimentary caresses. The rest of the company also worked conscien- tiously and ably towards the general success of the piece. Last night "Current Cash" was staged. The various situations and tableaux in this patriotically military drama being greeted with enthusiast...

GOVERNMENT EXTRAVAGANCE. CREATING NEW OFFICES. Comptroller of Advertising Appointed. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

GOVERNMENT EXTRAVA- GANCE Comptroller of Advertising Appointed At the last Cabinet meeting, Mr. Williams, a gentleman who has had some experience of newspaper work, and is now employed by the Kalgoorlie Miner, was ap- pointed by the Cabinet comptroller of all the Government advertising. This appointment, involving expenditure which has not been   authorised by Parliament, has been made   in the face of the most strenious opposition of all the heads of departments, who declare that they can manage their own advertising and that, if any saving be effected under the new regime, it will not equal the increased   expenditure of £350 per annum for Mr. Williams, and the outlay necessary for office   accommodation and clerical assistance for him. If it is necessary to create such a position, it should have been filled from within the service, which comprises many   gentlemen competent to undertake the work, and it is a &am...

LATE SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

Mr. W.H. Strickland, senr., chairman of   the W. A. Turf Club's committee, who has been confined to his bed during the last two weeks, is on the improve. His medical advisers expect him to be about again in a few days. Jack Anwin, who rode Bravo to victory in the Melbourne Cup of 1889, arrived by the steamer Kalgoorlie last week. It is his intention to follow his vocation in this State.   He is a most capable horseman and can always be depended on.   Barbarossa, whilst being shipped aboard the Kalgoorlie, at Adelaide, fell. The in- juries he received, however, were not serious, and he landed at Fremantle none the worse for his mishap. Lily's Secret, Cairo, and Cameron all landed in first-class condition.   The Church party are determined to have another tilt at the Totalisator in New Zealand this year. At the Presbyterian Church at Masterton on a recent Sunday the members of the congregation were in- vited to sign a petition prayin...

CHIMNEYS OF THE EARTH. VOLCANIC ERUPTION AT MARTINIQUE OUTBREAK OF BURIED FIERY FORGES. DESTRUCTION OF ST. PIERRE. APPALLING LOSS OF LIFE ANO PROPERTY. The Probable Causes of Seismic Disturbances. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

CHIMNEYS OF THE EARTH VOLCANIC ERUPTION AT MARTINIQUE   ---     OUTBREAK OF BURIED FIERY FORCES. DESTRUCTION OF ST. PIERRE.   ---       APPALLING LOSS OF LIFE AND PROPERTY. The Probable Causes of Seismic Disturbances.     The attention of the whole civilised world has been drawn by the recent eruptions in the West Indian islands   to the much vexed question of the origin of seismic disturbances. For   many years past the widespread opinion that the earth consists of a thin shell or crust enclosing an interior mass in a state of fusion was sufficient to account to most for the emission of the lava of volcanoes, which were, indeed, regarded as a proof of a fused interior. Careful consideration, however, of the physical requirements of a vast revolv- ing globe of fused matter and the con- Seat of the Disturbances. Showing the positions of Mt. Pe...

THE WATER SUPPLY. COMPLAINT FROM PORT HEADLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

THE WATER SUPPLY.   COMPLAINT FROM PORT HEADLAND. " Drover " writes :—Knowing your wish for fair play, I beg to request your publication of this letter. The Port Headland water supply is much Hot Springs, Fiji. neglected, There is a good Govern- ment well one mile from the jetty which has very defective troughing, and buckets altogether unworkable. This well wants new troughs. At Four Mile, the well although contain- ing a good supply of water at shallow depth is without buckets or rope or trough, except about 14ft. of worn-out iron troughing out of which the water runs as soon as it is put in. This is the well used mostly by teamsters, drovers and travelling public, and should have at least three   Sets of Troughing laid at once capable of watering say two hundred head of big stock. I saw one carrier camped there who had alone seventy bullocks in his four teams, all of which, beside the horses of five teams, say eighty, had to be watered at this well at on...

Our Sunday Serial "THE WOMAN PAYS." CHAPTER V. THE HOUNDS BAY ON THE TRAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

Our Sunday Serial "THE WOMAN PAYS."   By GERTRUDE ATHERTON.   CHAPTER V. THE HOUNDS BAY ON THE TRAIL. There was homely cheer in the dining-room of the little country hotel at Cooperstown. A generous meal   graced the table with its spotless cloth, the hostlers in the Liberty Barns were giving the horses as kindly a welcome, and the landlord and his wife person- ally attended to the wants of their guests. Perhaps, too, they were more than willing to linger and chat awhile with the chance passers from the world outside who were likely to be their only customers that bitter morning. It was a scene for the painter of homely, homelike scenes. The guests, their fierce hanger sated, lingered at the table, willing to delay a little longer their battle with their cold. The landlord saw with them, happily steaming in the heat, his coat thrown off, his rugged face shining with good nature and native kindliness, while his better half hustled about, hasteni...

CHAPTER VI. THE BATTLE IN THE SNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

CHAPTER VI. THE BATTLE IN THE SNOW.       Once more refreshed by food and warmth, the three fugitives emerged from the hotel at Mount Chestnut and looked up and down the road. Which way would they turn? Would   they once more make a wide swing to the north-west and cross the railroad track into yet another little island of unvexed quiet ways, or would they press right ahead up the slope for Newcastle or Neshannock? Had they     not even the poor cunning of the   hunted hare that will turn and double upon its pursuers? Or, would they.   with one fixed idea, push on steadily, doggedly, fatally toward the north? The hostler brought out their re- luctant horse and backed him between the thills, while the three gathered on   the steps of the tavern, trying with little success to conceal their im-   patience. Already their landlord was scenting in their eagerne...

CHAPTER VII. THE WOMAN PAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

CHAPTER VII. THE WOMAN PAYS. It was a lonely, peaceful rural scene. The red in the west was paling, but daylight lingered, caught and held and reflected by the mantle of snow that muffled every object, turning the fences to fantastic shapes in billowing white, clothing the fields deeply for their winter sleep. From one or two dis- tant chimneys curled and drifted the smoke of wood fires replenished for the cooking of supper. And on the snow, just where it was trampled by men and horses in this little war of outlawry, were scattered stains of blood, and two men lay, ghastly pale but unsubdued, prone on its soft white bed. One still struggled to aim a final shot, when a fighting man from the line closing in upon them; fired at a close range and battered down the last resistance with his clubbed rifle. And the woman—the guilty, suffer- ing, sacrificing, foolishly fond woman —to her in these fleeting moments of the fight no one had paid attention. No one had fired at her or perhaps thou...

RUSSIA'S POLICE. EXTRAORDINARY PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT THE TSAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

RUSSIA'S POLICE     EXTRAORDINARY PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT THE TSAR. I had only been a few days in St. Petersburg (says a correspondent of the "Evening News") and I had for- gotten an address. It was that of a lady on whom I had called with a     letter of recommendation three days before, and both her name and that of the street in which she lived had slipped my memory.     One of my friends in St. Petersburg, a Russian journalist, to whom I told my trouble, laughed at my dilemma, "That is quite simple," he said ; "come with me to Count P---. of the police." And off we went together. Count P—'s office was more like a club smoking-room than the sanctum of a police official. A number of well dressed men were lolling round the fire in armchairs, a tea samaver steamed upon a table covered with rare flowers, and had it not been for the sounds of   typewriters and the Rattle of Telephones &nb...

THE SWINDLERS SWINDLED. OUR GOOD THING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 25 May 1902

THE SWINDLERS SWINDLED. OUR GOOD THING   BY SANS SOUCI.   The following story, founded on fact, is written to illustrate the morals of the racecourses:—   "Hello, Jack, old man," I cried. seizing the hand of my chum as we   met in Hay-street one Tuesday's luncheon hour. "Well, Laddie, how's the game?"   "Oh, so-so, but not too good," I re- plied; "but let's go into 'the Met' and have a drink. After a few minutes' casual conversa- tion, I asked abruptly, "Jack, are you going out to Bursfield races to-   morrow?" "I don't think so—unless you have something good on," he replied inter- rogatively. "Well, look here, Jack, I think I have something good on. But to tell you the truth I'm not too flush, and I want someone to stand in with me."     "And a pretty swindle it'll be, I'll bet, if you've got the handling. But   come; weigh ouot, old man, and let's hear the good thin...
