THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 7 November 1891

ms^M Mr. Geo. Rignold's season at the Royal has only proved a partial uucce3S. His production of Tlio Merry Wives o£ Windsor was a woeful disappointment, although it was admirably played ana overy regard had to sccnio acces sories. Mr. William Rignold distinguished him self as Sir John Falstaff ; ' a hotter nover appeared in tlie colonies. Tho Lights o' London was substituted,. and drew better business, still not by any means equal to expectations. Tho fact is, theatrical affairs in Melbourne are suf fering from the provaleut ?commercial depres sion, in addition to which people are beginning to realise that tho show business is some what overdono in Melbourne. At the Opera Houso the Corsair, an amusing variety inelanyt, has enjoyed % fairly successful season, and is likely to run up to Christinas. Tho Bijou, which may be regarded as tho home of polite comody, has been relying principally u i-on revivals for popular support. The farcical ? comody entitled A Night Olf, with Mr. Anson ...

WINNING THIS OUP. The weather was glorious, the assomblngo numerous aud brilliant, and the scene ono of tho most picturesque and exciting ever witnessed on the Fleiniugton racecourse Under such condi tions Malvolio won the Uup of 1891. , It was the 31st contest of standard indicated, ' but never, porhapa, did success prove moro popular. ? The horso, somehow, had been a favorite from the ; date of tho publication of the weights; during the winter months ho was hold in high favor, and until witliin a week or ten days of tho meeting, when, owiug to one of thoso occult reasons known only totho bookmakers, he went back iii tho botting, and prior to. the raco his prico stood at 20 to 1.

ON THE FLAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 7 November 1891

ON THE FLAT. The Hat forms tho interior of the oval round which runs the doublo track utilised, the one for training the horses and the other for racing. For admission to this portion of the V.R.O. retterve ho charge is demanded, and as a conso quenco it is generally very largely patronised on -Jup day. What tho location may lack in gentility is amply compensated for by the bustle and variety of tho company and tho magnificent panoramic- view presented in overy direction. Taking as an illustration the old Roman Hippo drome, the flat is the contro of the arona, while tho seats of tho moro aristooratio spectators rise - gradually backwards to a great height in the direction of tho hill. Tho scene on tho flat is extremely lively during tho day's proceedings. It presents many of tho traditional features of tho annual : fairs held in times past in the old country, and all the well known characteristics of the hum bler patrons of the turf. It is especially the rendezvous of the sharp peop...

.THE LATE MR. W...H. SMITH. Tho death of the Right Hob. W. H. Smith removes not only a prominent figure from Eng lish political ' life, ' but causes a gap in the intcrncllc of the Conservative party that may.: ijossibly necessitate n reconstruction of the Salisbury Cabinet.' Sinco 1886, when - Lord Randolph Churchill resigned, in' a fit of spleen,' his portfolio of Chancellor of tho Exchequer, and achieved political effacoment, Mr. Smith had led tho .Conservative party in the Lower. .House, and though, when he assumed the roins of office, his appointment created something like consternation on both sides of -the House, his sober and moderate loaderdhii) afterwards of his party fully justified his selection. The deceased politician,' though boasting no very transcendent abilities, had had a romarkablo career. He was tho son of Mr. Win.

GENERAL BOULANGER. Tlio suicide of General Boulangor, Ic brav Gdniral, who for a timo ocoupied a position of influence in Franco which rondored his personality one of European importance, is tho oulminatiug inoident of a career .which had ter minated ill disgraoo and oonte'mpt. After aspiring to omulato tho example of Napoloon, ho, an outcast and an exilo, dies by his own hand onthe tomb of his mistress. His mother moulded his aharaoter, but the Duohess d'Uzos made him a possible pretender and Madame Bonnemainpro Bided over the wreok of his last chanoe of success. These threo ladies — his mother, the ' duohesa and Hadamo X.— seem to have played the rile of the Fates in tho weaving of the general's des tinies. Thoy moulded him, they tempted iiim, thoy itntnado him. Before he unhappily. beoamo the proy of intriguers who ruined him, General Boulangor had deserved well of his country.

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 7 November 1891

The Shakspearian maxim that the ' ovil that' men do Jives after them ' has been aptly illus trated by the of fee ds of Mr. GiUies's bungling upon . the financial ? prospects of the colony. If political uttorancos ore re liable the livtu Premier has loft the heritage of a deploted oxchoquor, a damaged com mercial reputation and serious monetaiy obliga tions, only to be met by largoly increased borrow ing, a disorganised Railway department, and unprecodentediy widespread business depreBuiou. It must,' however, be confessed that Mr. Munro is the champion Jeremiah of poli tical life, and hU eternal lamentations about the want of money have . already grown monotonous, and have intensified the mischief caused by hispredeccsssor'u extrava gance and finanoial incapacity. The conse quence is that Victoria must once more appeal to the generous enterprising British investor, who, John Bull like, gives liberally ' while he growls inordinately. As the Illustrated \Ncwa circulates largely at homo...
