Black Dingo CHAPTER IX.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 February 1894

Black Dingo [By J. J. Shebidan.] CHAPTER IX.— Continued. The sound of approaching foot steps caused the old man to oover up his drawing and advance to the door. As he did bo the handle turned and Wbodville entered. The clergyman's face nourtrayed mental agony, the expression of utter hopelessness and weariness shocked his tender-hearted friend, who immediately' ipot his own triumph on witnessiffgUfred's misery. ' Ah ! Alfred, ruy cniar boy,' he exclaimed, ' you are back sooner than I expected. You look out of sorts. You are too excitable, too easily moved — too easily moved, my boy.' Woodville walked wearily to the table, and leaning one hand upon it gazed through the window as though he had not heard Smiles's greeting. Presently with a shivering sigh, but still staring vacantly he addressed the old man in a low toned husky voice without warmth or expression. ' Ah, Smiles — what— have you — been doing — writing I sup pose ? ' The old gentleman felt strangely agitated by his nephew's...

FREE SPEECH. REFORM AND RETRENCHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 February 1894

If REE SPEE6H. I REFORM AND RETRENCH I MBNT. I Retrenchment has been in the air Imd on all tongues for the past two wears. Men have bowed to it as the ?etish that was to restore prosperity lo Australia, aud the present Govern Iment of Tasmania have based their [claims to office upon the amount of voal work they have done in reducing ?the public expenditure. The actual Ires ul t has been so far very disappoint ing, and instead of returning pros-. Iperity with each turn of the retrench Enent screw both the outlook and lictual present have been rendered Imore dismal and forbidding. Money ?is scarce, very scarce, and every day ?hat passes makes it more so, until ?ready cash has become an almost un Hmown quantity. Still retrenchment fcoes ou— and on, both in private and ?State employs, and every effort is apparently made to balance the ledger.

HOIDEN HUBBUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 February 1894

Hoioen Hubbub. 'iE&ph and every mortal honr it lasts, in this maniler ; the Infinite hubbub unakeVcened. In a clerical newspaper discussion that has been going on since the Anglican fcalkee-talkee ff&hres have'] been quoted showing New South Wales ahead of her sitter colonies as regards the number of arrests mafle by the.polioe. These damning figures: are considerably discounted by a more accurate knowledge of facts than appear to be known by our morning contemporary, it being another and peculiar example pf the 'grab ' system. In New South Wales the police run in as many as they can lay hands upon. If drunks are scarce they stop ft man and smell his breath, and if odoriferous of tangle he is compelled to 'come along.!' Every arreBt made counts for a stripe. In Victoria only criminal cases count, and if a policeman is compelled to arrest a drank whilst on night duty so much the worse for himself, for he is compelled to attend the court the next day to prove ' drunk a...

POLLARD'S LILIPUTIAN OPERA COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 February 1894

POLLARD'S L1LIPUTI AN OPERA COMPANY. Bright mime, pretty dresses, witty sayings, and nimble dancing feet have been the category of the week at the Royal. . Iu comic opera Pol hud's talented Company of young people are veritable wonders from Liliput, and apparently without an effort the mannikin company have rendered a series of operas including The Gondo liers, The Mikado, An Adamless Eden, and The Pirates. The princi pals have established themselves as great favorites in Hobart, Alf. Stephens and Harry Quealy having a full reservoir of fun in their compo sition, and the tuneful voices of Miss Marion Mitchell, Miss Cissy Sand ford and other members of the troupe were received with great favor. The chorus were were well up to their work, though of course some what lacking in robustness. The theatre has been moderately well filled in all parts each evening. The com pany has deservedly made a bigger nit in opera than with pantomime. To-night Pinafore is to be staged. ' They want to put...

YACHTING YABBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 February 1894

Yachting Yabber. The final heats for Mr. A. L. Clarke and the Sailing Club's purse for the 28ft. aud 21ft. yachts respectively, took place last S lturday afternoon. The wind was light, s utherly at tbe start, but freshened towards the fiiuish. Volant won in tbe 28ft. rlass, going well all day, especially in the light winds. Gitana should have crossed the line first ; but cross ing the line just for honor's sake only did not suit thr Gitana's skipper, so when almost home he took off his spinnaker and jibed, and otherwise stopped her way, until Volant pa-seil, aud then came in second — all for tbe sake of £2, second prize. Such barefaced throwing away a race, and thereby dis np|x-inting the spectators, should not be countenanced by the club, and on rcpctit.io'i of such conduct should be struck off the club reeister. Clyde and Iolanthc weut well, aud tbe latter would have won second prize by time but for carrying away her jib out-haul. Thelma was first over the line in the 21ft. class,...

STARVATION. AN OLD MAN BREAKS A WINDOW TO GET INTO GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 February 1894

STARVATION. AN OLD MAN BREAKS A WIN DOW TO GET INTO GAOL. An elderly man named James Nolan, finding himself penniless and without work, recently solved the un employed difficulty so far as he was concerned in a very trenchant manner. He resolved to ero to gaol, and so, arming himself with a stone, deliberately broke a window of the Bank of Australia, Sydnej'. The bank officials immediately secured him ; but they might have saved themselves from the danger of dying of palpitation of the heart through, rushing and getting excited, for the old man at once admitted the offence and evinced keen enjoyment in being relegated to the custody of the police. When charged at the station he said that he was starving and could not obtain work, aud rather than die in the street, which was the only pro spect before him, he had broken the window, as he was sure that thus he would be put into gaol,, where he would get food and shelter. The man was in such a shocking state from lack of food and attent...

MINING NOTES AND TIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 February 1894

liNGNOIESANOTlPS [Br Gnome.] The returns from the Queen have been slightly better for the past week, but as usual no assays are given. The. half-yearly rul ing wijl be held on the 28lh inst., and share holders will do well to roll up aud support those who will make an effort to bring about a better condition of things than has been allowed to rule during the six mouths just concluded. If ever occasion called for firm action re the management of a company, that occasion has arisen how in connection with Silver Queen matters. The cost of working the mine haB increased enormously, and the salaries paid. for bossing the mine are absurd in face of the remuneration paid for work done on other mines. Take for example the Tasmaniau mine at Beaoonsfield. Mr Davies, thp .general manager, upon whose shoulders enormous resppnsibilities rests gets £6 a week. The manager at the Queen mine gets double that amount, and this extra vagauce is going on in a company wheu the whole of o'fxhe returns fro...

THE JUNIORS, -By Point. The junior matches did not attract much attention last Saturday. At West Hobart Kingston were defeated by the local team by 66 runs. Judd and Stuart were the chief scorers for West Hobart, and E. Lucas and Hatell far Kingston. McDowell obtained the most wickets for West and Bond for Kingston. Gasworks did not make much of a stand against Glenorchy, Luttrell being the only one to get into double figures, and Piesse, Hal lam, and Phillips for Glenorchy. Postal-Telegraph had a nice time of it with Endeavour, being out in the field nearly all the afternoon. The Endeavour are to be congratulated on the stand made by them against their older opponents. Green batted splendidly for 38, and Nettlefold whs in a long time for his 17 not out. Reynolds and Hughes knocked their runs up in very fast time. City had another easy win against Dawn. Beasley made his runs in his own little way. McGinniss batted steadily for his 32, and Waxy Whitting got his some thing after Beasl...

ROYAL NAVY ARTIFICERS V. MONTE CARLO. This match took place on Saturday, the Artificers winning by 46 runs. The visi tors winning the toss decided to bat, and the first two to face the musrb wore J. Davies and H. Cuttler. Jack started to bit in rare style but fell a viotim to a fast yorker. Harry was more difficult to get as he could hide behind the bat, but a curly one from Walton got around his legs. J Paul stepped forward to do or die, and so he did. Some sound cricket was shown, and with H. Guilford ran the score up considerably. Paul at last was bowled by a fast break-back from ttandoff. T. Armi tage came next, and the pride of the Har vest Home was a. bit uneasy at first, but after obtaining a few played a ball on and retited, holding himself in reserve for tht bowling. J. Pilcher followed, and showed the spectators (of whom a great many were ladies) that he had not forgotten how to play. Guilford was bowled, after making 26, by Big Luke with a regular trimmer.

There was only a fair at tendance of tbe general public, certainly nothing like the number that should have been present, considering the excellence and novelty of the performance. The men of the fleet who competed in the various sections acquitted themselves well, and combined to produce a really first class entertainment. A squad of the Orlando's men, under instructor Bremner, went through cutlas drill, following which . came tho comic singing competition, which evoked roars of laughter..
