One young girl there, who could not have been move than 15 years of age, was under the in fluence of drink. It seems that the council must be that short of funds that they will grant a license to any old rookery in the city, or else they would have taken steps to have several of them condemned, or not issuo a new license.

THE AFGHANS IN BOURKE [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 February 1894

THE AFGHANS IN BOUBKE. The latest accounts from Bonrkc are to the effect that the Afghans are practically in armed possesion of the city of em, sweat, and sorrow, and that bloodshed will eoonor or later eventuate. The Afghans have for months past been laying in secret stores of Winchester rifles and revolvers, and they now consider themselves masters of the situation. As the niggers appear to be the especial pete and proteges of the police, the general public occasionally ' take it out ' of the few Europeans whose interests aro bound up with the camel inporting industry ?and several of the gentlemen nave been patriotically pulled out of their buggies and rolled in the sand, or else emphatically requested to 'put their hands up.' The Afghan or rather the Asiatic question, bids fair to come to a very acute stage in the very near future. Between some of .the teamsters and the camel-men a perfect feud exists. The men with the camels will not make room for a team, and, should any hitch o...

Football Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 February 1894

Football Notes. TBt Kuck.1 Already there are sighs of the approach ing football season, and although in Southern Tasmania the game is at sixes and sevens, it is to be hoped that the asso ciation will once again be placed on a sound footing ere the time arrives for the resump tion of the winter Dastime. According to a Melbourne contemporary strenuous efforts are being made to place the Richmond Club in the van of the senior rankB. Melbourne are on the job too, and are to be strengthened by Davy Plant, who played so well for several seasons with the City. Freddy McGinniss, another City player, wjU probably be found in the ranks of the Melbourne Club when the season commences.

VICE IN THE COUNTRY AN ADOPTED DAUGHTER SEDUCED. THE SEDUCER PERFORMES THE OFFICES OF ACCOUCHEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 February 1894

Vice in the Country. AN ADOPTED DAUGHTER SEDUCED. THE SEDUCER PERfORMES THE OFFICES OF ACCOUCHEMENT. The country districts are by no means the realms of arcidiam innocence, in fact f reports are true, there is no Woe or frailty of poor humanity that is not existing in our urban life, the only feature absent being that which accentuates sin and moral or physical disease, vu., the huddling together of its poverby-Btrioken victims. Last week a horrible' report of seduction and its contingent woes reached ie city from the East Coast. It appears that a young girl, now about 18 years of age, the niece of a well-Lhown politician had been virtually adopted into the family of a landowner of the district when a child, and this man, who is over 6 j years of age, is said to have so far forgotten hie responsi bilities and honor towards his foster daughter as to have taken advantage of his influence over the girl to entice her in to his lustful arms. Time told its ordinary tale, and whilst hiB wi...

MINING NOTES AND TIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 February 1894

Mining Notes and Tips {By Ghomb.] The news received from the Oodkin claim is of a very satisfactory character. Carbonate ore showing in the face indi cates the mineral character of the lode matter being driven through. At the same time it shows that at this point the. water level of the country has not been reaohed. It is satisfactory to know that inquiries nave been made at the office for some of the shares held in trust, and that, a large number of the shares forfeited and Bold lost week have since been taken up under the power given to the directors by shareholders. Youjmight very well keep set in type the words, ' But no assays are given,'.for they apply every week to the returns irom the Queen mine. Some very decided action re this matter should be taken by the share lolders at the meeting to be held on the 28th inst. The report issued by the dtrec tots is an insult to the intelligence of the shareholders, and serves to show how little the former ojidsrstand their duty to the l...

FREE SPEECH. THE BEGINNING OF THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 24 February 1894

^ ? FREE SPEE6H. THE BEGINNING OF THE SESSION. The coming session of Parliament will mark a new era of progression or retrogression in the history of the colony. It meets on Tuesday, \ and the people demand that \ work should be done to assist \ in lifting the pall of distress from the \ colony. If good and earnest men were at the head of affairs the demand would be answered to the best of their ability ; but under the regime of Dobsonia we only enter another phase of time-serving, for the Government through their organ have announced Vkat they meet Parliament with no aKnite scheme of finance or general pregffianune — they leave matters en tirely to the temper of the House. The tone of the Mercury's forecast is, ' Let the Ministry remain in office and they will do anything in reason that is asked of them.' No good can be expected from a policy inaugurated] under such conditions, for at the present crisis of Aus tralian affairs strong-minded and yet liberal men are required. Great pr...
