LATE SPORTING. ADELAIDE RACING. TATTERSALL'S MEETING. LILY'S SECRET LANDS THE [?]DLES. Barbarossa Beaten in the Cup. ADELEIDE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

TATTERSALL'S MEETING LILY'S SECRET LANDS THE HURDLES Barbarossa Beaten in the Cup ADELAIDE, SATURDAY Tattersall's Cup meeting was held at   Victoria Park to-day. The weather was warm, the attendance large, and the racing     interesting. Bay Lavender was favorite for the Trial, but the outsider Albani won     easily. A heavy commission made Lily's Secret favorite for the Hurdles, and she made hacks of her field. The stable win- nings on the mare went on Barbarossa for the Cup, but he got away badly, and when   half the distance was gone he was 20 lengths away from the field. When he threw off his soreness, however, he went through the field very quickly, but The Sailor had made the pace too fast to allow Bulger's horse to get nearer than fifth. The Sailor won the Cup last year. In the Steeplechase old Regent gave a magnificent exhibition of jumping, combined with pace. Troubridge was made a hot favorite fo...

GERALDTON HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

The Geraldton, or as it is called,   the Victorian Hospital, viewed from     the outside is a really creditable-   looking pile and, one would judge, ex-t tensive enough to hold all the patients   ever likely to be dumped there, even in the event of an outbreak of bubonic plague. But its internal management is quite   another thing. There is a rumor afloat that a petition is to be signed and sent to the authorities, asking for a thorough investi- gation into the whole question of admini- stration by doctor, matron, nurse,   etc. Dr. Elliott, the resident medical officer, is no spring chicken either in age or hospital work. He has had some 30 years' experience in Geraldton       alone, during the whole of which time he has been in full charge of the Government   Hospital--except, of course, some instances   of temporary leave. He ...

DEATH HOUSE ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

DEATH-HOUSE ASYLUM   _____   The inquest at the Fremantle Lunatic Asylum last Thursday on the suicide in that awful bastille is a fulfilment of our pro- phesies published over twelve months ago,   and just what might be expected. The suicide bad been sent to Fremantle for safe watching, because of his self-destructive   instincts. Yet he was not safely watched, but left to hang himself in one of the gloomy   corridors. His death is an accusation of   absolute criminal neglect on the part of Mr. Illingworth, in whose department the Asylum comes. It certainly proves that the under-manning which we denounced so strongly in our special articles has been   allowed to deepen the   Disgrace of the Asylum. Imagine the crime of keeping a warder 20 hours on continuous duty attending to the most delicate and trying of all patients--the mentally afflicted. This fact alone should cause Illingw...

OLD CONVICT LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

OLD CONVICT LAWS After the repeated exposures of the evils of the old convict laws in THE SUNDAY TIMES, especially those so harassing to prisoners released on ticket-of-leave, it is a matter for congratulation that the need for reform has at last penetrated to the delibe- rations of the Cabinet. At a recent meet- ing of members of the Government, it was decided that these musty and mischievous laws should be abolished, and with that end in view it is proposed--but only as yet pro-   posed -- to introduce during the coming session a new Prisoners Act to supercede that now in operation. This, however, is not intended to alter in any way the new   gaol regulations which we review in another portion of this issue.     A numerously-signed requisition is to be   presented to Mr. A. B. Wright, asking him to nominate for the mayoralty of South Perth.

PARTICULARS FROM VICTORIA. STARTLING REVELATIONS. FIENDS, NOT FIGHTERS. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

PARTICULARS FROM VICTORIA. STARTLING REVELATIONS. FIENDS, NOT FIGHTERS. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY.     "The time is opportune," says the Mel- bourne Herald, of Friday "refering to the published statement which has been in our hands for several days, to state that there is at present in Melbourne a young man who had a similar service, and who- returned to this city a few weeks ago. His story given below in detail is even more sensational than that published in London. Our informant says he was under the fourth Victorian con- tingent, and that when his time with that body expired he joined the Bush Veldt Carbineers. He does not claim to be an actual eye-witness of the events to which he alludes. At the same time he says he got his information from reliable sources, and it can he depended on as being correct. He speaks, in fact, on the authority of comrades who saw what they talked about, and with whom the     Remarkable Proceedings of the ...

PERTH MERCANTILE CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

PERTH MERCANTILE CRICKET A large crowd assembled to witness the match between Coombe, Wood and Co. and the Morning Herald yesterday. The news- paper men won the toss, and kept their opponents in the field all the afternoon. They opened with O'Donnell and Scott, but the latter and Kneebone were caught off Delaney early. Mooney came to the rescue and batted splendidly. He was especially severe on Delaney, and was bowled by O'Brien just on time for 75. C. O'Donnell, Paskett, and Schmidt were the other chief contributors to the total of 151. The match will be continued next Saturday.

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

TURF TATTLE The Helena Vale Racing Club's Easter meeting was commenced yesterday week, and though the general body of backers   had a bad time the racing was very en- joyable. So Long was lucky to win the Vale Hur- dles, as he was nearly down at every jump, but scrambling over he smothered the others for pace on the flat. Veracity ran second, but it was simply a one-horse race. The Midland Handicap was annexed with -   out difficulty by the Tremando colt, Philoso-   pher, who won without an effort. Gipsy Bill ran second, and he is beginning to show   a return to form.     Cadenas went out an even-money favorite   for the Easter Handicap, but he unmistak- ably showed the white feather when tackled by Sunbrown and Loch Dee 50 yards from home, and he could finish no nearer than a poor third. Sunbrown won at the finish, and did his work like a racehorse. After Acrobat and Braganza had dead &am...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

CRICKET. The cricket season is now drawing to a close, and very shortly our grounds will be given over to the popular winter game, foot- ball. A noticeable feature of the past season has been that whilst interest in senior cricket has declined it has correspondingly increased in mercantile matches. The mercantile test match between Fre- mantle and Perth, played at Fremantle yesterday week, excited considerable in- terest, and after a keenly contested game it resulted in a victory for the Perth team by 27 runs. In batting Wildy (46), Nankervis (26), and Delaney (22), did best for the win- ners, while Shannon (56, not out) practically stood alone among his confreres for Fre- mantle. Holmes did best with the leather, taking five wickets for 19 for the losers, while Delaney took four for 34 for Perth. Playing for the Bachelors against the Benedicts of the W.A. Cricket Association yesterday week, T. H. Coyne made 111 out of a total of 326. The next best score to him was 68, made by R F. ...

LITTLE PETS AF FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

LITTLE PETS OF FREMANTLE. ___ The Illustrated Page of Little Pets of Perth in our last week's pictorial supplement has given such general satisfaction, and received so much appreciation from the mothers of the metropolis, that we have determined to extend a similar opportunity to the mothers of Fremantle, and, conse- quently, our artist has been instructed to prepare a page of these little pets for a future issue. We shall be pleased and grateful, therefore, to receive from the Fremantle mothers the portraits of their little ones, which will be included, free of all cost, in a neat design which will be a lasting remem- brance of the tiny pets and their companions. As we are anxious to issue this page of our supplement at an early date, will our lady readers kindly forward to us these portraits of Fremantle children at their earliest con- venience? Rats! Where? Not at Hughes and Doheny's. Only the best of Groceries, con- diments, and Italian's warehousemen's goods kept. The Italian o...

A MEAN GANGER. BAKER'S HILL DAM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

A MAN GANGER BAKER'S HILL DAM "Not Scabs"write: "We beg space         to state our grievances in connection with the working of the Coolgardie water scheme at Bakers' Hill dam. On Wednesday, March 5th, a mes- senger was sent from the ganger to the men working under him that all who had any pay to draw must present themselves at the timekeeper's camp before 7.30 a.m., as the paymaster was there. Consequently all the men put in an appearance to receive their dues--some 20 odd in number--and,   of course, as it was close upon 7.30 when the men got to the camp they did not get on the job till a few min- utes after starting time, and to their surprise when they did get there the   ganger was absent, and all hands waited on the job till 8.15, when he put in an appearance, and then he seemed surprised to find the men idle, and said before all hands, " What, do you call this half-past seven? " After this he gave t...

LOCAL COURTS AND LITIGANTS. LAW VERSUS JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

LOCAL COURTS AND LITI- GANTS. LAW VERSUS JUSTICE "Litigant" writes:--You have on   several occasions referred to the in- equitable mode in which justice is   administered in the local courts of this State, and in none more so than in Perth. Your comments apparently do not apply so much to the Act and rules themselves which govern these courts but to their administra- tion. In many cases the stipendiary magistrates are totally unqualified both in legal knowledge, equity, and in those principles of modern juris- prudence which are so well defined by the Supreme Court judges of this and the different States. In one local court there sits in judgment, not 100 miles from Perth, one who no doubt in the Crown colony days was eminently suited for the position, but in the how altered condition of the State, when justice should be ad- ministered in a broader, commercial   sense, he is     Completely Out of Place.   ...

The Sunbay Times SUNDAY, APRIL 6, 1902. S'AFRICAN SCANDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY, APRIL 6, 1902   S'AFRICAN SCANDAL Grim-visaged war may have its pomp, its heroism and its glories, but it is at its very best neither more nor less         than a terrific living engine of orga- nised homicidal horrors and blood-   thirsty destruction. Nothing but the honor of its cause and the ulterior humanity of its purpose can possibly justify its murderous ravages. It is   the supreme tragedy among men. We cannot with safety play with it. "As if," said the orator Burke, "war was a matter of experiment! As if you     could take it up and lay it down as an idle frolic! As if the dire goddess   that presides over it, with her murder- ous spear in hand and her gorgon at her breast, was a coquette to be flirted   with!" And whoever talks of "civi-     lised warfare" speaks of a contradic- tion, just as though it were ...

ERRATIC ROE. MAGISTRATE OR MIMIC. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902

MAGISTRATE OR MIMIC. In no part of the world, unless it be, per- haps, in the territories of the tyrannous Mandarins, do magistrates, or those supposed to administer justice, act with such a glaring disregard to evidence and the unfor- tunate position of those coming before them   for judgment, as they do in Western Aus-   tralia. In the country the laws as dis-   pensed by paid presidents of the Bench and amateur justices of the peace are turned into ridicule, or treated with deserved disrespect or absolute contempt. But what can be ex- pected when the magistrate of the metropolis sets such a shocking example to his   brethren? Whether it be this man's train- ing in the Black Nor'West, or whether his   idiosyncrasies arise from The Abnormal Humors of his impulsive and unstable disposition, we do not now stop to enquire, but certain it is that he gives frequent occasion for   recalling the language of Mr. ...
