How often do we criticise men Wiliom we do not know and How often have we to recall judgments conceived prejudice we arc even if we be lioness forced to Admire Ihen and institutions upon closer acquaintance that we condemned in the Light of ignorance or half baked knowledge that is even worse. The Prince of Wales the. Heir to the throne of Britain As an Empire has come to new South Wales and conquered the hearts of All. Even those whose feelings towards royally were hostile although perhaps quite impersonal have been forced to re adjust their perspective. The Prince s personality took their hearts by St pm and found a pleasant Welcome there unknown to Hie barriers they thought impregnable to such sentiment. The fruits of the Prince s Progress arc twofold. The Monarch that is to he has been Given a vision of his trusteeship that might almost overwhelm him because of its stupendous Ness. The length and breadth and diverse interests of his dominions. Jive been brought before him in irresistible fashion. The knowledge acquired upon this tour will never be Ettace. In the hearts of his people has been awakened a new love for Tho throne and the Royal family. The smile of the Prince will linger with them and the Boyish ingenuous Ness Oil his win a log Uhl Enance will remain t Byears to come when he is upholding the undying traditions dynasty and his race to his subjects in these Southern seas he will still be the boy Prince they loved at first sight.

The democratic function connected Willi the Prince s visit or rather the one that was the most democratic of All was his reception and levee at the town Hall on Friday. There was a crowd of people eager for admission even from the Early morning Lioma of seven. As the hours went on these increased. Finally they were formed into a queue half a mile Long. One of the Over seas journalists was More appealed to by this demonstration than with anything else he had seen on the present tour. The half mile of living pushing yet orderly and Good natured humanity Bent upon seeing their Visi Tor at close quarters was one incident in the i Prince s Progress that bespeaks the affection of his people. The crowds the enormous crowds everywhere became so much a part of everything that before Long they were taken Lor granted and failed to excite comment. I had almost forgotten to mention that there were More people than one could imagine As inhabitants of any single City. The management by the police was something that deserves great credit. The contrast Between wednesday and thursday nights was All due to them. On wednesday night there was evidence of a kind of sup pressed hooliganism. It was just sufficiently marked to be unpleasant and perhaps dangerous. Cliques started a push and the _ result was much the same As when a movement sets in in an ice Field. It is communicated to the superimposed elements and gradually extends. There were people who were uncomfortably crushed. The police took charge on thursday night and upset the Little game. Thence Forth there was no trouble plenty of discomfort lout no danger. The police both mounted and foot car ried out their duties with firm Ness but with tact and civility and no Appeal to them for assist Ance was lightly disregarded. Their hours of duty were Long in some cases from 7 in the morning till mid night. Amongst the officers i was Able to recognise were sgt. M. 0. Wray now at Merewether Constable Stew Art formerly at Hill Roveand con stables Eagleton and Mackenzie from Armadale. The Commonwealth dinner. Hitherto i have not described inti mately the functions connected with the Welcome. The daily press has done this with almost extreme fulsome Ness. But i feel that those functions which most reflect the personality of his Royal highness should receive at least passing mention. The common wealth dinner on wednesday night was one of Vliem. The Way the Young Prince delivered himself in the pres ence of austere ministers of the fed eral Cabinet was a revelation. Twenty six years of age and discussing matters of Imperial significance with the ease and Assurance that bespoke full know ledge. He was nervous it is True. Or it would perhaps be mor strictly Cor rect to say that he is shy but it is a shyness that is become ugly matched to his Boyish appearance he scarcely looks More than 18 he read a Mes Sage to Australia from the British government and offered congratulations upon our Ideal of a White Australia. Coming from another Young Man Sacii phrases or rather words of equal meaning would have sounded Mere banal platitudes. Why the difference with this Prince a the answer to that question would reveal the secret of his personality and i have said be fore that that eludes definition. The illuminations. A the spectacle after. Nightfall on wednesday was on a scale of magnificence unprecedented. One or two of the set pieces will give something approaching an idea of the ensemble. Farmer & co s. Building was a huge map of the world on which the Empire on which the Sun never sets was picked out in red lights. The Ris ing Sun surmounted and shed. Its effulgence Over All. By arrangement of lighting a biscuit Hue was shed Over the whole building. The "s.m. Herald office whose build ing Calls for no Especial architectural Praise under Ordinary circumstances was resplendent in its evening dress which had the rising Sun of the . As the Central. And dominant device. Messes. David Jones establishment presented a splendid effect. The White Walls reflected dazzling Light from All Points and threw into hold Relief a life like figure of the Prince mounted upon a White Charger against a Black Back ground. Large size australian flags depended from each window. The theatres of course went to elaborate designs in. The decorative scheme. Her majesty s was conspicuous with its baskets of yellow and Blue roses in which internal electric lights glowed. The name of the picked but in. Letters formed by extra powerful glow lights. Another arrangement of lights gave the. Illusion that flames were bursting from the angles and Licking the Side of the building. Mar tin place evoked Long drawn exclamations of admiration but Macquarie Street was a revelation that outshone the. Extravagances of the arabian nights fables. From the Post office which was elaborately 1 and artistically decorated depended probably the largest Union Jack and australian Flag Ever seen in this hemisphere. Next night the Harbour was ablaze of Light. Before the pre aran ged signal the face of. The Waters was shrouded in darkness. Even the ves but Jit with a fraction of their customary., brilliancy. The signal was Given an from horizon to i Zonita the sky was Abler e a Matij self so s re Nown Australia Sydney Brisbane and Una,.and four submarines n. O a Welcome to Pressman the journalists accompanying the Prince upon the renown were tendered a Welcome at the Prees club by the Institute of journalists the country press association and the Austral an journalists association. The guests included messes. A. K. Long London times. Marsden a a bribing a. " a a a " pos Myers daily Telegraph de. Coates Router s. Keith Murdoch Sydney Sun and j. Sandes official australian press.

Greatly struck with the brightness of Australia. He quite recognised the future austra Lia Lead before it. They of the old land Lead made their history but history had yet to to made for Australia. There was no doubt it would be a wonderful history. To envied the press of Australia for it was in a position to have a part in the formation of that history. He was rather afraid the English race had not up to the present taken a great interest in its dominions. The far outposts seemed so tar away but the speaker s endeavour upon his re turn would be to get the average eng Lishman to take a Keener interest in the colonies because therein Lay the keynote of Empire. Plane Falls in Harbour. Some sensational air stunts were performed As the renown was coming to her. Anchorage. Lit. Webb who was flying in a do Haviland plane carry ing a passenger was overtaken by engine trouble and forced to land in the Bay. The plane was taken in Tow by passing Craft and finally lifted out of the water by a Crane. But it. Webb reckoned that had the engine failed Over land he could Liao come to the ground in safety. The risk to the Pas sengers on the vessels seemed consider Able on account of the narrow margin by which the air men grazed them As they swooped overhead. In this Way the airmen s stunts were particularly sensational. Football. Rugby league. At the Council Chambers on monday night a Well attended meeting of the league was held or. S. J. Kearney president occupying the chair. An application from l. Jones to play with the South club was ruled out of order by the chairman. The protest from or. J.
