A Distinguished Visitor, [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

A Distinguished Visitor, Mr. Harry Long, the well-known Protestant Defence and Christian Evidence ilectiwer,- arrived in Sydney last Friday jpormng-by .the "Arcadia." His stay in Sydnej&%asLa.brief one, for he left on Saturday after^^^for Brifi\x=req-\ , bane. Mr. Long, who is now in^liis seventy\x=req-\ | seventh year, is a perfect marvel for his age, for his intellect is as clear, and as sound as it I was in the good old days, when he lectured and ! preached on Glasgow Greeu. For over half a century he has been a familiar figure in the religious world, and the man who has not heard of him is sadly out of joint, with the times. The Council of the Australian Protestant Defence Association hope that Mr. Long's health will permit of liis returning to Sydney in a few weeks time to deliver a series of lectures. It is to be hoped that, with God's will, this may come about, as the veteran's personality is Vound to give an electrical impetus, tbe'value of which cannot be too highly...

Scots' Church Social. T)h* annual tea meeting and concert in connection witli the Scots' Church was held 011 Thursday evening of last week in the hall of the Young Men's Christian Association Rooms. Over .500 sat down to the tea at (i.oU p.m. There were 11 tables, u which simply groaned" under the load of good things, varied and sumptuous enough foT the epicurean taste of an Augustus Sala. The table decorations were very pretty, and reflected great credit on the ladies, (for it takes the cunning of a woman's hand to ornament a table) for, last Thursday, in their floral setting, the tables fairly " beggared description." Here, in the lines of Sliakespeare, were to be seen Hot lavender, mints, savory, marjoram, The marigold that goes to bed with the sun, And with him rifles weeping; daffodils That come* before the swallow dare*, and Take the winds of ITareh with beauty; violets dim.

PRIZE COMPETION. A DEED OF HEROISM. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

PRIZE COMPETION. A DEED OF HEROISM. I was stopping at my auntie's place up the country wheu I witnessed a very brave deed of heroism. Not for from my auntie's place there lived a little girl about my own'age—I was only 9£ at the time- -I remember often playing with her, she had such a nice, agreeable, and obedieut way. I must confess that I did not have quite as nice a character as her. This little girl's mother died when she was two months old, so she was left in the care of her father until he was married again to a very kiud lady. The ; day before this deed was done I remember her playing games with me, romping over the fields, uever dreaming her end was near. The next day I did not see her uutil she was on her death bed. It so happened that this little girl went out with her little brother and a little dog called "Tiger." AVell, in scampering about the littledog went too near the edge of the steep banks which border the railway line, and so slipped down the banks. The little gir...

London Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

London Notes. (Specially compiled for the Watchman' by P.B.W.) A BUI to regulate Sunday trading in Scotland has been introduced by Mr. Cameron Corbett, M.P. The object of the Bill is to make it illegal to eell goods on Sunday unless a license has first been obtained from the local authority. Apparently the *'American invasion" includes popular observance of Independence Day. The Crystal Palace authorities announce an American Concert for July 4 next, on a Handel Festival scale, conducted by Mr. MannB, and supported by eminent soloists from "the other side." King Edward's Coronation will then have passed, but its enthusiasms are to be revived by a grand performance of Handel's u Zadok the lJriest," Presbyterians in London are desirous of emulating other denominations in erecting a stately Church House. When the subject was mooted in the South London Presbytery several members objected that the body was not in a position to speud probably £200,000 in that way, but the majority thought...

TO THE PRELATES AND R.C. PRIESTS OF AUSTRALASIA. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

TO THE PRELATES AND R C. PRIESTS OF AUSTRALASIA. Gentlemen,— Through the courtesy of the Watchman, I address to jou (as a body) this open letter. You have already heralded my arrival in this country by printing in the " Catholic l?resp," of last week, part of the same articles that since 1892, your Church has persistently followed me up with, and since justice is not to be found in the category of your virtues, it would be useless now (as in the past) to ask you to give to the public my side of the case. Your first article is quite mild; you have satisfied yourselves by dealing out a mild, homoeopathic dose to begin with, later on you will administer stronger doses. You must be perfectly aware that every charge brought against me has always been met and refuted, and in the United States and in Canada, no one pays any attention to the articles you so generously circulate. Abuse is no argument, and, by resorting to it, you only manifest the weakness of your cause. But now to facts, an...

The Protestant Watchtower. The Clerical Organ of Romanism [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

. The Protestant Watclitower. § I The Clerical Organ of Romanism In this State continues in a condition of volcanic eruption with a vast outflow of mud. Its curses, like those cf the Pope, are better thtiu its blessings, and seem to bring prosperity. It rails bitterly at the English rule iu Ire\x=req-\ laud, and wants Home Rule, which means Ireland under the whip of the priest; but England's voice against it waxes louder. It denounces the "Telegraph," and behold the 44 Telegraph " is everywhere. Its soul is vexed that the Boers cannot, beat the British, and the Boers are asking for peace. The priestly fuhninations have been loud against B.C. soldiers going to fight the Boers, and yet not a few of them havo gone and fought bravely, defying the Church. # * .* * .Catholic Consolations— They are found in some anti-British incidents.

Breezy Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

Breezy Notes. Bv THE SENTINET,. The proposal of Mr. Jolin See to spend half a million upon the Clarence River Breakwater is quite -worthy of his elephantine genius, and colossal method of getting rid of money. Probably this precious scheme of helping Mr. O'Suliivan to another example of his i seven shillings a day-fad will be classed as I ' reproductive/ because it improves a northern I port. What possible return in the shape I of money or even in increased trade can ensue from this may appear in the vivid imagination of the Minister for Public Works, ; but not in the brain of any other sane member of the community. A port with a magnificent half-a-million breakwater, into which half a dozen little trading schooners occasionally sail, ia quite on a par -with that magnificent idea of a statue typifying Australia Facing the Dawn. The magnificence of it allis only too apparent; the pity of it is, however, that while statues are being erected people are starving, and the country thirsti...

"THE NOTORIOUS MARGARET L. SHEPHERD." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

"THE NOTORIOUS MARGARET L. SHEPHERD." We are indebted to the (Eoman) Catholic Pre** for the heading to this article, which appeared over a letter in that journal last week. The lady named had arrived previous to its publication, and she correctly prophesied to us that this very letter would appear therein. This letter she. stated, had been published on her arrival in every city she lias visited since its first publication in Canada about nine years ago. It is the newest thing the R.C. press can ^supply.. for the edification of its readers about this " notorious " person. Whether " notoriously" bad or "notoriously"good is yet to be proved to the Australian public, she being a stranger in a strange land. The Australians as a rule, are slow to condemn, and we think it will take more than a cine years' document, hawked all over the world,to make them ^plieye she is the notoriously vile person she is represented to be. We ask the Boman' Catholic, as well as the Protestant public, to susp...

THE Watchman CIRCULATION 10,000. SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1902. PEACE AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 7 June 1902

CIRCULATION 10,000. SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1902. ■ PEACE AT LAST. AFTER a struggle marked by great stubbornness, and sot a little brutality, the Boers bare accepted the terms offered, and agreed to a general surrender." That these terms are generous to a fault, and include an amnesty to a large numberwho are practically criminals, is proof of the absence of any spirit of vindictiveness on the part of Bis Majesty's counsellors. In accepting them the Boers have shown good sense, even though they have taken an apparently considerable time before making up tbeir minds to what .was the inevitable. Identical terms, with those to-day accepted were offered and rejected in Hay, 1901, at atime when their cause was just as hopeless as a month ago. We should not, however, too keenly criticise and condemn the actions of a people struggling for what they deemed to be their rights, and for National freedom. The world would lose many of its brightest and most enduring examples if self-sacrificing patrio...

Some of the other States iutend holding a two days' celebration, but the Sydneyite, iu the face of the present dull condition of affairs, will be satistied with one day. I have fallen a willing victim to the witchery of Ping Pong, and I must confess it is a-most | exhilarating pastime. i The game became quite a furious craze in London last winter. No doubt we will all be just as crazy when our picnic days are a shivering memory. The folks who have been most severeh* " ping pung" have specialty constructed tables of planed wood, painted dull green, with a whito border. Various racquets uro u»ed, some of vellum, cat-gut, and now, of wood, mostly short handled.
