Night Auctions and Other Things
(Taken from Geoffrey H. Manning's A Colonial Experience)
Having in turn made all men, and bodies of men who have chanced to come in
contact with your temper and interests, the subject of virulent abuse, you
have at length selected the auctioneers for your lucubrations; suddenly discovering
that they are rogues, swindlers and traitors to their employers... I tender
you some advice... Learn to write the truth. Support no principle in which
you do not honestly believe. Attack actions rather than men. Seek to reform
rather than to ruin. Exclude from your columns matters with which you and
the public have nothing to do. If the public interest should require the
castigation of vice or error, do not encourage while you profit from them,
and only condemn when your spite or supposed interest dictate. When you must
censure, do it in a good, not in a malicious spirit; and use plain, simple
English instead of frothy invective and dirty scurrility.
(Advice from Nathaniel Hailes, an auctioneer, to the Editor of the Register - see SA Gazette & Mining Journal, 2 March 1850, page 3.)
Fifty years ago - Some may think this is a long lapse but to my friend, John Tidmarsh, it was but yesterday when he reminisced with me a few days ago: 'We were a hard-working lot in those days and our principal amusement and recreation when work was over was a stroll through the "city" on Saturday nights visiting the auctions and other places where our small, but lively bundle of humanity used to congregate.
'It is well known that "left-off" clothing and other serviceable things were sent out to the colony and these splendid goods found there way to the night auction marts. Stand up, Luke Murphy. You were the first Irish night auctioneer and you acquitted yourself, becomingly, as a descendant from the old Irish Kings. I can here him now:
Ladies and gentlemen - I have to offer you some splendid things tonight. Here
is a satin gownd [sic] without speck, spot or splash, only once worn by a
Duke - A 'Duchess', a voice cried out - How much for this splendid ball gown?
Five shillings - six shillings - seven-and-six - going - gone.
'And the "ball gown" of Western London fell to a dame of South Australia. Luke was a strict Catholic and was much given to entertaining the clergy. Oysters had just dawned upon us in those days and many fine bivalves went down as a register in his favour.
'I now come to McCabe's Mart. Of course, he was an Irishman. Who else could knock fun and hilarity into these famous gatherings of a Saturday night:
Gentlemen - I have some trifles to offer you tonight, he said, holding up a
good-looking suit of clothes worth, perhaps, a pound. I am almost ashamed
to put it before you. See where the moths have half-eaten it. And as for
buttons is their wan on the shute? Is it worth thruppence?. Walk it around,
Mike, let them finger the texture. One shilling - thank you sir. Five shillings.
Bedad, it's ruin it would be to you, young man, if you got it. Ten shillings
- fifteen shillings. Is it mad, ye are? Seventeen and six! Glory be to -
going, going, gone! Take it home, tenderly, and show it at early church tomorrow.
'Half a dozen doors further east and we come upon O'Moyle. I am not sure of his nationality, though the prefix might possibly suggest it. "Old Moyle" was the sociable, if rude, term. He was a remarkably irritable auctioneer and any young fellow indulging in a lark at his expense had to keep well out of the range of his fists. Now then for a sample of the sales:
Ladies and Gentlemen - We'll commence the sale with this magnificent double-cased,
double-capped, double-jewelled watch. (A Voice - Does it keep time?) Yes,
yahoo and runs with you for a hundred years.
'There was a dead silence and I roared out from my safe corner - "Sixpence". The auctioneer's mouth opened, his eyes glazed and I thought he would have jumped out of that rostrum - "Will some one be kind enough to put that fellow out of the room?"
'No one was kind enough and I stood up. "Look here, Mr O'Moyle, I'll start that watch at ten shillings and in the course of bidding should it be knocked down to me I'll make a present of it to the best looking girl in the room. Now?" O'Moyle responded:
Thank you sir, you're a gentleman. Ten shillings for this magnificent watch.
Twelve - fifteen shillings (This was past my bid and I saw that I was safe.)
One pound. Hand round the watch, Jim, let them see the works in full play.
One pound five - one pound ten. Any advance - going, going, gone for one
'"Thank heaven", I said to myself. If the watch had been knocked down to me there would have been a royal row between the sweethearts of the girls in deciding this undecidable beauty point - the best looking girl.
'The last on my list of auctioneers is Arthur Fox. His mart was on the south side of Rundle Street - a little further on, I think, from Faulding's. His sales were generally conducted in the daytime and you could get there anything from a needle to an anchor. He reminded me of those old Irish schoolmasters whose heads were well stowed with Latin and ever ready with a quotation to cap your vulgar English. Arthur Fox was reputed to be the best classical scholar in South Australia.
'I now retrace my steps to Hindley Street - that part which nearly forms the junction with Morphett Street. Here was a large shop or "store" as they were called in those days, roofed with shingle - a thorough big bush shop up to date. On a look around of a Saturday night I have counted twelve hands pitching parcels into customers' arms. I think it was at this time the largest retail grocery house in the city. This flourishing business was carried on under the style and title of Downer & Graves.
'Partnerships, like other things in the world, dissolve, in many cases not leaving a rack behind, but it was not so here. Mr Graves carried on the business alone with marked success when he thought the time had arrived to pull down the old bush-looking store and build a splendid shop. Alas! for human ambition.
'A grand shop went up, with a plate-glass front, highly-polished counters and well-dressed men behind, but all this failed to attract. The humble class was afraid of it and the bush people coming into town swept past it, and went for more homely-looking establishments. In short, the glory of that once famous shingled store had departed.
'Flett & Linklater's, top of Hindley Street, on the south side, was another remarkable place of business in its day. Here drapery and grocery were combined and carried out successfully for some years. On Mr Flett's death the sole proprietorship fell to Mr Linklater, but later circumstances, over which that gentleman had no control, compelled him to call a meeting of his creditors. This meeting, I don't think, lasted half an hour. An arrangement was soon made as all had confidence in the man. He had a few more successful years and all his creditors were paid in full.
'The large building at the corner of King William and Rundle Streets on the south side was erected by the late Thomas Waterhouse and soon after many large and substantial buildings began to adorn Rundle Street. It was known then, as it is now, as "Waterhouse's Corner". A grand shop, well and attractively fitted up, displayed the grocery. A proverbial saying was, "You may send a child to Waterhouse's and it will be well served." This business had its reign of prosperity like other places; but, alas! for the mutability of all things human - after several goings out and comings in, its sun set.
'Adjoining this shop and in the same building was the office of the late Mr W.M. Letchford, where the Bank of Adelaide was opened. On the same side, a few chains further on, stood the late Mr Hay's shop and store. This house had a fine country connection, and many a countryman of his was helped by Mr Hay to be "placed on the land." Any one stepping in about 11 o'clock might notice a little circle at the rear discussing the politics of the day. Glandfield - afterwards Mayor of the city - was always to the fore, while John Kelly, and many other neighbouring notables, could be seen with arms moving up and down in gesticulation, hammering out their ideas in fine frenzy, all bearing on the brilliant future of the Australian Empire. Such was Alexander Hay's political nursery.
'Opposite to this, but perhaps a little more east, might have been seen a shop with the name "Thomas Reynolds" over it. My business often took me there. Well can I recollect the little office at the rear where Mr Reynolds sat with the dignity of a merchant prince. He was a perfect gentleman and it is with sadness I ponder over his fate. I refer to the wreck of the Gothenburg, on which he went down to a watery grave, hand in hand with other good colonists. Had he been spared he would have made a brilliant mark as a legislator.
'Now, after having had my readers through this dry colonial sketch, I think it is but fair to ask them to step up to the old Black Bull. Scotch whisky? Certainly! The proprietress of this famous hostelry was Mistress David Lithgow, a thorough Scotch lady and well able to rule her house and keep in order.
'On Saturday evenings it was customary to have music, singing and recitations in a large room. The company never failed to have some good singers and reciters in it and when called upon they were always ready to "favour us". I remember a fine old man singing that famous song "If I Had a Thousand a Year, Gaffer Grey" and at another time I listened with pleasure, faultlessly gone through, "Father William".
'Many English readers will know the piece with the lines in it - "You are old, Father William, a hearty old man; now tell me, etc." Throughout these social gatherings the utmost decorum prevailed, and I do not recollect ever having seen any one there the worse for his glass.' For further information on early auctioneers I turn to my friend 'Unohoo' (Norman Richardson) who made countless contributions to the history of South Australia via the columns of the Register and Observer: 'Attending a horse sale at Barker Brothers well-known sale yards recently, and seeing horses sold at form 7/6d upwards, memory carried me back to the first stock sale in 1867.
'The sale was held at the original sale yards on the Payneham Road, close to the Buck's Head Hotel (now The Avenues). A lad of 11 years, I had brought 10 head of fat cattle from Glenbarr, Strathalbyn. It was my first droving trip and I thought myself a man of some importance when I handed them over to Mr E.M. Bagot and got his receipt. He was a well-known man in those days, and I can see him now, with his half-bell topper of drab colour and top boots and breeches - a typical John Bull.
'The next day I attended a sale of horses and donkeys at the Sturt Hotel yards (where the Arcade now stands). Sim Barnard was the auctioneer. W. Sandover was the landlord of the Sturt Hotel, which was a popular resort for south-eastern visitors, and the livery stables adjoining the sale yards were kept by Alex Ferguson. Barnard was in business in Broken Hill in the early days.
'J.H. Parr was the next one I saw at work. At that time the firm was Parr and Luxmoore and their office was in Green's Exchange, where Bowman Buildings now stands. He was selling horses at the suit yards. Parr was a quick and versatile man, with a wonderful flow of language and smart at repartee. He would often talk a horse down from the tip of its ears to its hoof.
'On one occasion a well-known city man, who was heavily involved with the banks, kept up a constant flow of interjections when Parr was selling. At last a beautiful cob came in and the auctioneer was enumerating all his good points. When again the interjector said, "Would he carry me, Parr?" "Yes, Jones and your bank overdraft, too", was the instantaneous reply. Jones collapsed.
'The next whom I dealt with was Henry Johnson who, in 1873, was Port Augusta's only knight of the hammer. He sold for me the first mob of horses I admitted to public auction. I remember that one of these, a grey mare, was bought by Dr T.Y. Cotter (one of Adelaide's first doctors), and he rode her constantly until shortly before his death. Johnson was a good salesman and then a leading man in Port Augusta. He passed away in the early eighties.
'John Johns was Port Augusta's second auctioneer. He had started at Clare in 1878 and went to the port in the following year and did big business there. A genial man, of fine physique, well liked by every one, and a good auctioneer.
'The next I came in touch with were Barker and Chambers (John Barker and Hugh Chambers). They followed Barnard at the Sturt yards and had their office there. Chambers was the auctioneer; a big, burly man, with a loud and penetrating voice. He passed away in 1893. Frank Cornelius, from Mount Barker, succeeded him. In 1896 Cornelius died and ALfred Barker, better known in hunting circles as "Joker", took his place. A few years later Alfred Barker retired and A.E. Barker, W.E. Bedford and W. McEwen joined the firm. One of the best and most favourably known horsemen in Adelaide was probably W.E. Bedford who wielded the hammer for Barker Brothers. His mighty resounding voice was often heard on the opposite side of Currie Street.
'James Shakes, of Liston and Shakes, was the next auctioneer I had dealings with. I bought 64 horses from him at Formby & Boas's yards in Currie Street in 1880 and these horses were some of the first that Sidney Kidman ever brought into the city for sale; he had brought them from New England. James Shakes was a great auctioneer and a most popular man.
'W. Gordon & Co. was the next firm I dealt with in 1881. Mick Morris was one of the auctioneers and, in after years, he was the first inspector of stock and stations in the north, at Farina.
'J.H. Stafford who, I think, was the first auctioneer at Quorn, I first met in 1883. H.J. Mitchell started at Port Augusta the same year and did a good deal of business, not only in stock, but also in land. Mr Mitchell subsequently became Commissioner of Insolvency. An amusing incident occurred with him.
'He gave his messenger boy one pound to buy some "pennies" (one penny stamps). To Mr Mitchell's annoyance the lad came back with a pound's worth of coppers and was told to go to the post office and buy penny stamps. Upon presenting the coppers for payment the postmaster, a bachelor who was just getting his mid-day meal ready, told him it was not legal tender and refused to supply the stamps.
'The lad returned to his employer who was most angry and immediately gave him a dozen pence and sent him back to get some stamps. This was repeated several times. No sooner did the postmaster start on his dinner, but a knock on the window called him away. At last, exasperated, he said, "Give me the damned lot" and so the farce ended. 'Another of our old-day salesman was Seth Ferry. Who is there among stock people that have never heard of "the master". His different associates have been numerous - Ferry, Moore & Wilkinson, Ferry, Moore & Wallman and others with whom he was always the chief auctioneer. William Gordon & Co., whose office was in Grenfell Street was another firm I Had transactions with. Mick Morris acted as their salesman for a while.
'Edward Crispe was a prince among the knights of the hammer. Starting on his own account in the early 1880s at Crystal Brook, some six years later he sold out and joined the firm of Reynell, Colley & Co. In 1886 he became salesman for Elder, Smith & Co. and held sales in various parts of the colony until his retirement. He conducted the first auction of camels that took place north of Port Augusta; it was at Farina in the late 1880s.
'J.W. Gleeson, whose headquarters are at Clare, in the seventies and eighties was a well-known man all over the north . Eventually he sold to W.R. & E.B. Young and acted as salesman for them. His residence in those days was at Inchiquin.
'Jenkin Coles was a man of fine physique and had a commanding voice and was a born auctioneer. His headquarters were at Kapunda. His memory is kept before us by his sons, who followed in his footsteps as auctioneers under he title of Coles Brothers Ltd. John Moody, one of Orroroo's earliest auctioneers, was a fine old man and a good salesman.
'A.E. Smith, originally a clerk with James Spicer, of Laura, and subsequently in the same position with Davey & Farrar, at the same town, was quite a young man when he started business on his own account at Port Augusta. He sold out to Elder, Smith & Co. and proceeded to Mount Gambier as their auctioneer. About 1900 he started again on his own account at Casterton in Victoria. A quick and smart auctioneer there were few which were better known in the western districts of Victoria.
'John Duff, of Goodchild, Duff & Co. often visited the north on sheep-buying expeditions and about 1874 he purchased 1,800 fat sheep from a station. The manager, a well-known man long since gone, had a hasty temper. The sheep were counted out of the yard by both buyer and seller, but their tally did not agree. There was a difference of four or five. The sheep were put back in the yard and again counted out with the same result.
'Neither Duff or the manager would give way and as a last resort Duff said, "Let the boy (myself, 16 years old) count them." This was agreed to and done. I made the same number as Duff. The manager threw his hat on the ground and jumped on it and cursed me as being totally incompetent.
'William Edward Hamp, who succeeded A.E. Smith as Elder's manager at Port Augusta, subsequently joined Barker Brothers as outside stock salesman. He started Dalgety & Co.'s stock business in Adelaide. He was a general favourite and through him I purchased thousands of sheep and cattle, and many hundreds of horses. In one drought year I bought 4,500 mixed sheep with 10 month's wool on them at 1/9d. a head and was fortunate enough to get a big fall of rain in time to save them.
'Another auctioneer of long ago was ben Hunt. It is a long time since he first went to Port Augusta as clerk to Mr E. Hamp away back in the 1880s. Chris Moody of the firm Moody, France & Symons, auctioneers of Moonta and Kadina, was a grand old man and a good salesman.'
An Old-Time Almanac - Early Adelaide Identities
Another old colonist and friend, Mr E.A.D. Opie, was kind enough to round off this chapter for me: 'A certain shabby little volume, which looks only fit to be thrown on the rubbish heap has provided me with many moments of pleasant thoughts, recalling the faces and forms of people I knew when the book was written and of others with whom I have since come into contact, and most of whom have passed out of my life. It is a SA Almanac and Diary for 1849 and gives the names of persons who lived there in those far-off days.
'I was then a boy and remember that we occupied one of a row of brick cottages in Currie Street, close to the square. I was sent to a dame's school in Rosina Street kept by a Mrs Best, whose name appears in the book referred to. Her place was one of several two-storeyed houses on the west side of the street. I cannot call to mind much of what took place there, but I know I was soon handed over to the care of Mr W.A. Cawthorne, whose school was at the rear of Trinity Church.
'My remembrances of this school are not pleasant. He had a rather gruff manner and. following the prevailing fashion, he did not believe in sparing the rod. We youngsters, behind his back, called him Cackeronie. In later years he gave up teaching and took the secretaryship of a building society. I met him frequently and found him to be a most amiable and obliging man, more than usually well-informed.
'The name "Coglin" carries my memory back to a warm evening spent in a theatre. The most striking item that night was Shute's topical song "The Political Alphabet". It was, no doubt sad doggerel, but it took, and some of the jingling lines stuck to me:
C stands for Coglin, who deals in heavy wet,
D stands for Dutton, who's called a ladies' pet,
I stands for Ingleby, a lawyer shrewd and merry,
J stands for Jickling, loves Mrs Jones and sherry
'Paddy Coglin was an early arrival. He had when I knew him the Napoleon Buonoparte Hotel and a timber yard adjoining where the Royal Exchange is now. He entered parliament and sat for some years, being noted chiefly for his love of long words. He would never use one if two or three syllables, if he could find another eight or nine which came within coo-ee of his meaning':
As a man of many syllables he was a terror to phonographers, for when loaded
with words he proved a perfect verbal mitralleuse [sic], and fired off his
multiplied charges so rapidly that no man living could follow him except
by electricity. For instance, on one occasion I heard him say, 'the sesquipedalian
adjective promiscuously promulgated by the indescribable intellectual advocates
of an incomprehensible conglomeration of impracticable ideas are enough to
create a volcanic disturbance in the cerebral region.'
'He also attracted attention by his persistency in moving every session for a grant for the Queen's Cup - I have forgotten whether he ever succeeded in getting it. Francis S. Dutton sat in parliament for some years, was a co-discoverer of the Kapunda copper mine and became our Agent-General in London.
'Henry Jickling, described as of Rundle Street, barrister, was a funny man, funnily dressed, a bit of a "softy" and the butt of everyone's jokes. His walk was a hop, skip and a jump and he was near-sighted, so that I imagine he could tumble upstairs as easily as another man could fall down them. For a short time he was acting Judge and afterwards master of the Supreme Court. Ralph Ingleby came on the scene later. He was one of our leading pleaders, was an enthusiastic florist and should have been a good judge of cigars.
'Ralph Raphael, figuring as a clothier and draper is, I suppose, the same man who was known later as the proprietor of a loan office. I knew him well and he asked me to fix up certain documents for him on many occasions. He always concluded the interview by saying in his breezy style and wheezy voice, "All right, dear boy, much obliged; will send you a box of cigars." The cigars never came, but then, as he had been taught, death pays all debts.
'I do not find the name of Samuel Raphael mentioned. He was long a member of the city council and was always to the front. A small man with a big soul and determined in fighting battles of the rate-payers. He was distinguished for his fiery temper, and was always ready to tackle an opponent, big or little, with his tongue or his fists.
'An eye-witness told me that at one council meeting he saw him chasing Alderman Tomkinson around the table, trying to inflict a thrashing with an umbrella. Sammy used to make things so lively that the newspapers' report of a council meeting was usually as good reading as a page from Punch.
'I have a dim recollection of him taking action when he thought that the railway authorities were infringing on the citizens' liberties by erecting gates at the Morphett Street crossing, and that he took a posse down to the place and removed the gates. [This story is told in another chapter.] Although an unruly member, whom no Mayor, except perhaps Caleb Peacock could keep in order, he did good work in the council and was missed when he died.
'Nathaniel Hailes was also a small man, but carried a good deal more flesh than did Mr Raphael. He wrote a good deal under the name "Timothy Short"; in our book he is styled an auctioneer. The boys of Young's School ten years after knew him as the sedate, gentlemanly secretary of the Mechanics' Institute which was located in King William Street about where the Commercial Bank is now.
'When it was too wet to play cricket or "hoppy" some of us used to spend recess time among the books there. From his advertisement, which appears at the end of the book, Mr Haile's flow of language appears to have been as copious as that of the auctioneers of the present day. He offers his services to the public and informs them that every Wednesday at 11 and Saturday at 1 his bell would continue to be heard from the old premises, when the old familiar faces, with an admixture of more recent colonists would always be gathered around him.
'He had instructions for several large sales of villa and cottage allotments at the seaside and elsewhere, when the weather would admit of fetes champetre and sales in the open air. He would hold an unreserved medley sale in front of his premises in Hindley Street on every Wednesday at 11.
'Speaking of one auctioneer takes my thoughts off to another of somewhat later times - Luke Murphy - who held evening sales in Hindley Street, close to Rosina Street. He was, of course, an Irishman, and racy at that, full of fun, and as good-tempered as they make them. Going to his place was almost as good as a visit to the theatre, and cheaper, if you did not buy too much. My cousin, Whistling Jem, as we called him, and a regular attendant, often got some of us boys to accompany him there.
'He was the only one amongst us that did business, but he bought all sorts of things. He was in the habit of exhibiting his purchases for sale on shelves in his father's shop, the principal things being boy's hard-glazed hats and penny whistles. On one occasion, however, he bought a hogshead (big enough if Diogenes had , it to have made a cottage or two rooms and an attic( filled with hams. He got me to help unpack it in the back yard. But, oh, my! there was too much in it ant the scent was the forerunner of petrol. I went home.
'Ulrich Hubbe appears as secretary of a building society. He afterwards set up as a professor of languages and subsequently became well known because of the assistance he rendered in working out the scheme of the Real Property Act, for which no man could have been better qualified. He was an old man when I first met him and was blind in one eye. He afterwards lost his sight altogether and was saved from destitution by John Colton's government granting him a small pension for the remainder of his life. His son, Sam, went to the South African War in command of the Bushman's Contingent and was killed in the first encounter with the enemy.'
Some Personal Reflections
To conclude, I pen a few words from my own recollections, some of which complement what has said above by my various friends: It was in 1849 that Nathaniel Hailes offered for sale upon the ground the section laid out as 'Burnside the Beautiful', which was advertised in an auctioneer's most attractive style:
[I] feel real pleasure in introducing to the notice of all who value health,
fertility and beauty preliminary section 320 situated one mile above Kensington
at the foot of the most picturesque mountain of the whole magnificent range
nearest Adelaide. A limpid and everflowing stream meanders through it producing
luxuriant, diversified and perennial verdure... the sea views are only bounded
by the shores of the gulf or the horizon and the neighbouring walks are romantic
in the extreme.
Amid the wattle and other native flowering shrubs appear the gorgeous rose, the clinging honeysuckle, the flowering currant, the fragrant briar, geraniums in profusion, nasturtions [sic], sweet peas, garden herbs of every species, a forest of Cape gooseberries, the wayward strawberry, figs, peaches, nectarines, vines of choicest varieties, apples, oranges, plums, almonds, pomegranates and even the weeping willow inclines its graceful form and extends its valedictory arms over the stream which has nurtured it since the foundation of the colony.
About 30 years later, William Wadham, in announcing the sale into small allotments of a portion of the land, republished Haile's advertisement. I remember hearing Mr Hailes deliver a lecture on Hood in a building in Chapel Street, Norwood. He read with intense appreciation 'The Ballad of Sally Brown' and 'Ben the Carpenter' and in the last line of the verse:
His death, which happened in his berth,
At forty odd befell;
They went and told the sexton, and
The Sexton tolled the bell
he irresistibly broke into laughter. He said that it was a strange thing that, in two different selections from Hood's poems he had seen the first line printed, 'His death, which happened in his berth', thus destroying both the sense and the humour. I am reminded of a riddle which was asked me by an auctioneer who is still in business - 'Which is the most docile, the church bell or the organ? Answer - 'The bell, because it will sound when it is tolled; the organ will be blowed first.'
The "Nobility of Adelaide" is in the Register, 20 and 24 January 1844, pages 3c and 3c:
The Nobility of Adelaide are undoubtedly the Nobs, a sobriquet derived from
the practice followed up by others of this genus in the mother-country, of
stealing knobs and knockers... They are distinguished by the faculty they
possess of living a good style free of expense. They gormandise and get drunk;
they drive tandems and ride hurdle races; they sponge everlastingly on the
