THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. "MESSAGE FROM MARS." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROAYL. "MESSAGE FROM MARS." During the past week good houses have witnessed "The Lady of Ostend," at the Theatre Royal, and the play has immensely delighted the patrons. Perhaps the only fault that can be charged against the management was the late rising of the cur- tain and the long waits between the acts. Otherwise "The Lady of Ostend" proved &nbsp; one of the most mirth-provoking comedies that has ever been staged in the Theatre Royal. On Monday night we are to have another treat in the restoration of "A Mes- sage from Mars." Those who witnessed the &nbsp; play on the occasion of its production a few weeks ago will certainly require no urging to see it again, and to those who have not seen it we earnestly advise them to take the brief opportunity yet remaining, for the play is unique and excellent, not only as a play full of marvellous scenic effects, but as a public educator.
CREMORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
Owing to circumstances over which &nbsp; Messrs. Jones and Lawrence had no control, the pleasant little Cremorne Theatre was closed for a portion of last week. The re- quirements of the Board of Health have now been complied with, and last night the curtain rose on "Current Cash" before a large and enthusiastic assemblage. The piece was assisted by new and beautiful scenery from the brush of Mr. John Camp- bell, a splendid mounting, an orchestra en rapport, and the rim with which the artistes performed their several parts. &nbsp;
THE RAILWAYS. IN SEARCH OF A MANAGER. MR. GEORGE APPROACHED. BUYING OFF THE OPPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
THE RAILWAYS. IN SEARCH OF A MANAGER. MR. GEORGE APPROACHED. BUYING OFF THE OPPOSITION. &nbsp; The 12 months' vacancy in the the office of General Manager of Railways shows signs of terminating, for the Government &nbsp; are bestirring themselves in the matter. We &nbsp; are in a position to state definitely that Mr. W. G. George, M.L.A., has been ap- &nbsp; proached with a view to securing his accep- tance of the appointment. At a first glance &nbsp; Mr. George's experience as an ironfounder might, seem a sort of qualification for rail- way management, but it is none. What is required is a first-class business man with a a wide experience—one used to controlling big concerns and dealing with large num- &nbsp; bers of men—a broad-minded man, with large graps, capable of seizing the detials of our extensive railway system and governing &nbsp; them in &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...
PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS. SERGEANT SELL'S SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS. SERGEANT SELL'S SECRETS. There is an assistant engineer named &nbsp; &nbsp; Sergeant in the employ of the Government in the Railway Department, and stationed in Perth, whose ever increasing wealth has a story behind it. The Government pay for one in his position is not so liberal as to enable a man from the surplus it affords, &nbsp; after high living, to buy land and houses all &nbsp; over the metropolis. There is doubtless a clue to Sergeant's growing affluence in the private history of the firm of Davis, Hankinson and Co., contractors, boring &nbsp; &nbsp; engineers for artesian water, &c, &c. This firm has executed a great number of con- tracts for the Government. It was this &nbsp; &nbsp; firm, also, that laid that Lord-street lime. &nbsp; For the Government they have done abund- &nbsp; &nbsp; ant boring. But all this is legitimate work. It is in another...
CLAREMONT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
Mention is made in our advertising columns that Mr. R.W. Pennefather is a &nbsp; &nbsp; candidate for the above seat. Mr. Penne- father was for over three years Attorney- General in the Forrest Ministry, and sub- &nbsp; sequently, on the strong recommendation of Sir John Forrest, elevated to the position of Judge of the Supreme Court in a temporary capacity. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. J.C.G. Foulkes is a candidate for &nbsp; the seat vacated by Mr. Sayer, Claremont. He will address the electors at Cottesloe at Wells' Hall on Tuesday, at 8 p.m.; at &nbsp; Cottestoe Beach, in the Wesley Hall on Thursday, and at the Claremont Town Hall on Saturday evening next. Mr. George T. Poole announces that he will address meetings at Claremont and Cottesloe on dates mentioned elsewhere in &nbsp; &nbsp; our columns. Mr. Poole stands as the constitutional democratic candidate for the &nbsp; &nbsp; Claremont district. &am...

KALGOORLIE KETCHUP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
KALGOORLIE KETCHUP. BY KURRAJONG. &nbsp; Some of these days, when I can get a &nbsp; decently long spell from diorite-brtaking and wood-jamming, I am going to write a memoir on Westralian goldfields wardens. True, I have never met Axel Ostlund, of Pilbarra, but this side of the tropic of Capricon there is never a one of these exalted functionaries but what I can conjure &nbsp; up in my mind's eye from personal ex- perience. They are such a widely-varying assortment that they would make good copy, and they could be arranged pair-wise to set each other off like foils. We would start at that Ultima Thule of goldfields settlement (exclusive of the North and Nor'-West) sub- &nbsp; tropical Peak Hill, where Ulysses Bagot— "Useless'' Bagot they used to call him in South Australia—has ruled the roost for the last five years. "Useless" is in England just now on a holiday. He is a scrubby, in- &nbsp; offensive little man, with no distinguish- ing charac...
Fremantle Lyric Club. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
&nbsp; Fremantle Lyric Club. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The recent production of Pinero's farcical comedy, "The Schoolmistress," by the members of the above-named club met with so much appreciation that it has been de- cided to reproduce the piece to-morrow (Monday) evening at the Fremantle Town Hall. The advance sale of tickets is re- ported to have been most encouraging, and as the caste will be indentical with last week's successful production and excellent rendition may be looked forward to. &nbsp; &nbsp;

OLD TALES RETOLD. FENIANS ESCAPE FROM FREMANTLE. EXCITING EPISODE IN THE EARLY DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
OLD TALES RETOLD. FENIANS ESCAPE FROM FREMANTLE. EXCITING EPISODE IN THE EARLY DAYS. On Monday, April 18, 1876, a dar- ing and well-arranged plan for the escape of a portion of the Fenian prisoners, confined at Fremantle convict prison, West Australia, was successfully carried out, and six prisoners, Robert Cranston, Michael Harrington, Thomas Darragh, James Wilson, Thos. Hassett, and Martín Hogan, succeeded in effecting their escape in spite of the most ener- getic measures on the part of the Government to recapture them. Between 9 and 10 o'clock, Hogan, who was painting at the comptroller's resi- dence, was missed from his work and could not be found. As he was A Fenian Prisoner suspicion of concert with the other Fenians was aroused, and inquiry was once made for the other Fenian pri- soners, when it was found that the &nbsp; six men above-named were missing. In the meantime, information had reached the police that two four wheeled carriages, with two horses each, one two...
THE BRITISH AIR SHIP. DR. BARTON'S MODEL [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
THE BRITISH AIR SHIP. DR. BARTON'S MODEL &nbsp; Dr. Barton's navigable balloon has yet to be tried, but a model of it has been ex- hibited by him at a meeting of the Aeronautical Society and more lately at the Crystal Palace In some remarks made by Dr. Barton on his invention, which, when completed, &nbsp; is to be submitted for trial by the War Office, he said that he proposed to employ a cigar-shaped balloon, having a capacity of 160,000 cubic feet, with a double envelope, and divided into sections by internal diaphragms. (M. Santos-Dumont's air ships haye a double envelope, but no internal diaphragms.) The length of the ship will be 180 feet, and its weight about 10,0001b. Between the cigar-shaped balloon and the framework carrying the machinery he will interpose a system of aeroplanes. There are to be three sets of these arranged almost in the same perpendicular plane as the screw propellers Their own proper plane is, however, horizontal and, as in the skimming m...
PORT HEDLAND RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
PORT HEDLAND RAILWAY. "Nor'-Wester" writes: Mr. Illing- worth last night at Day Dawn at a public meeting spoke of the intention of the Government to build a railway from Port Hedland to a point 60 miles towards Marble Bar, presumably the Shaw River. Now, I would like to point out the, in my humble opinion, utter absurdity, and waste of public money in an undertaking of this sort, especially when there is so much more important work to be done. There are very often misleading telegrams printed and returns given in the Perth papers re Nor'-West crushings, etc., so that outsiders not knowing these parts might easily be led to believe the place far and away better than it is. One very often sees the report of a good crushing in the Nor'-West of perhaps a parcel of 20 or 30 tons of stone that average from 7oz. to 20oz. to the ton ; but the same telegram is careful not to state how long it took to Get That Crushing Out. The first mining lease issued in the Pilbarra district was, I think, ...
Our Sunday Serial "THE WOMAN PAYS." [CON[?]NCED.] CHAPTER VIII. THE END OF THE BEGINNING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
OUR SUNDAY SERIAL &nbsp; "THE WOMAN PAYS." &nbsp; BY GERTRUDE ATHERTON &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; [CONTINUED.] CHAPTER VIII. THE END OF THE BEGINNING &nbsp; Never yet had any story a begin- &nbsp; ning; no story had ever yet an end. One little hasting minute of hot action springs from causes so remote and seemingly so alien that no one can trace them. In its wake it leaves consequences that trail their slow length no man may predict how long. In Pittsburg the tumult of flight and alarm, the news of capture, of wounds, suffering, death, left one man almost forgotten. His name was Peter Soffel. He was keeper of Pittsburg gaol. For him, too, all was now in the past tense. It was the least of the blows that had beaten him down that he had lost his wardenship. It was not much, but it was what he had of livelihood and pro- fession, yet from the moment that he woke dazed and mentally wandering in his room in the keeper's quarters in the gao...
DEPOPULATION OF IRELAND. STATEMENT BY ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
DEPOPULATION OF IRELAND. STATEMENT BY ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS. At a meeting of the Standing Com- &nbsp; mittee of the archbishops and bishops of Ireland, held at University College, Dublin. on Tuesday, April 15, 1902, &nbsp; his Eminence Cardinal Logue in the chair, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: &nbsp; 1. The population of Ireland having &nbsp; decreased by a quarter of million of in- habitants within the last ten years, and by little short of four millions within the last half century, we cannot but regard this continued depletion with feelings off deep anxiety for the fortunes of our race in their own country. We therefore deem it a pressing duty to publicly Discourse the Ruinous Outflow of our people from their own country, where Providence has provided suffi- cient room for them, if only they were employed in cultivating Irish land and engaged in the manufacturing and in- dustrial occupations that should find place in every ci...
FACTS ABOUT LIGHTNING. OLD IDEAS UPSET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
FACTS ABOUT LIGHTNING. OLD IDEAS UPSET. &nbsp; &nbsp; Without doubt lightning was the first electrical phenomenon that was ever observed by human beings (says the "Electrical Review.") To this day it remains the least known and least understood of natural electrical manifestations, except, perhaps, the aurora. There is a vast deal of popular misconception concerning the danger of lightning and the nature of it. The lightning flash is a discharge from a cloud at a high potential with reference to the earth. When the atmosphere is charged with water, vapor and some eddy or current in its colder upper state is deflected down- ward, causing condensation, and ex- ceedingly minute drops of water are formed, each bearing an electrical charge. The consolidation of these into larger, drops results in a very great increment of the potential of the charge, since the capacity of the drop varies with its diameter and the volume of the drop with the Cube of the Diameter. The conse...
PEACE AND WAR: TWO NEW MOTOR DEVICES [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
PEACE AND WAR: TWO NEW MOTOR DEVICES The Simms motor war car, a wonderful land ironclad, which may one day repel foreign invasion. It can travel nine miles an hour, can carry20 men, and is armed with two pom- poms and two maxims. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A last word on the dust problem. The water from this electrical sprinkler covers a width of 120 feet of street. The inventor says it would be useful for dispersing unruly crowds. What peaceful pedestrians are to do when they meet this travelling Niagara is not explained.
A PHANTOM WEDDING. MARVELLOUS SIGHTS WITNESSED NIGHTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
A PHANTOM WEDDING. MARVELOUS SIGHTS WITNESSED NIGHTLY. In spite of the efforts of hundreds to &nbsp; solve the problem of the phantom wed- ding in the little Norwegian Methodist chapel at the south-eastern outskirts of La Crosse, in Wisconsin, the mysterious bridal couple continue to make their periodical visits to the place. Every night the sidewalks and fences &nbsp; near the chapel are filled with patient watchers who hope to see and solve the weird scenes the neighbors swear take place before the altar on nights favor- able for ghostly manifestations. You may see 200 people patiently waiting for the midnight hour, all dumb and motionless, and regardless of the cold. &nbsp; One of the neighbors, a woman, first saw the strange sight one night while attending a sick child at midnight. She saw a light in the church, and, going to the house door, sought to dis- cover the cause. Upon reaching the open air, she says, she heard a shrill scream And the Lights Went...
ROUGH ON CHAMBERLAIN. DILLON THE CRITIC. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
ROUGH ON CHAMBERLAIN. DILLON THE CRITIC &nbsp; The Dublin "Freeman's Journal" is &nbsp; terrible severe on Joe Chamberlain. Under the heading of "Chamberlain the Liar," it recently published a leader of which the following is the &nbsp; text:—Mr. John Dillon was guilty of &nbsp; a slightly exaggeration, or anticipation, in his retort upon Chamberlain upon Tuesday night. He called him a damned liar; but the damnation is only coming. It is in sight. As to his being a liar, that goes without saying. His career has been an acted fraud. He was a liar as a Radical ; he was a liar as a Home Ruler; he was a liar as a Republican ; he is a liar as a Loyalist ; and, as appetite grows with what it feeds upon, he is a mam- moth liar as a Jingo. He lied about the Jameson Raid. He lied about the London Conventions. He lied about the suzerainty. He lied about the negotiations. He lied about the be- ginning of the war. He lied about the continuance of the war. He lied...
INVISIBLE [?]AURE[?] OF LOVE. EVERY MAN A HERO. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
INVISIBLE LAURELS OF LOVE. &nbsp; __ EVERY MAN A HERO. &nbsp; There is an old and disagreeable say- ing that no man is a hero to his wife; but I believe there is not one woman in a thousand who does not think the man she loves, particularly if he is her husband or her son, capable of &nbsp; any act of heroism ever performed— if he only had an opportunity to prove it. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; I know one very timid, small, drab- coloured gentleman, whose wife is so &nbsp; thoroughly convinced that he is only waiting a chance to take his place among the martyred heroes, that she paves the floor whenever she hears the fire-bells ring, and peers out of the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; windows in the anguished expectancy that an ambulances is Bringing HIm Home. &nbsp; "He is so brave!" she wails. "He will be sure to run into that burning &a...
