PORT ARTHUR Twenty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 6 May 1893

Port Arthur Twenty Years Ago. [Br 'ftlEGEL.'] Here was a go! I p.m.— seven miles from home ;. five if not six miles ' from the Neck, with, a hoise, a broken ' down cart, rugs, proviBions, and three [ ladies ! What was to be done P Eat' our ' tucker ' and tramp back, and thus give tip all hopes of reaching the Neck, or leave the ladies behind— in camp — and go on without them ! We : held a councilor1 war, ladies admitted, ; and to their 'everlasting honor be it said they unanimously resolved to. tramp it out to the Neck at all hazards, and get back as best they could. Acting on this resolve all un necessary hamper was left in the cart, the horse unharnessed and packed with the provisions, and off' we trudged once more. The road still led north along the edge of Little Norfolk Bay, which lay on our left, until we arrived at a spot where it took a sudden turn to the east, in which direction it led for the rest of the distance to the Neck. At the angle in the road we came upon a number ...

MINING NOTES AND TIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 6 May 1893

MINING NOTESANO TIPS [Br ' Gnome.'] Reoent developments at the Silver Queen mine should be quite sufficient to catisfy the most pessimistic observer that the future of the West ] Coast is beyond doubt. Tasmania has literally a silver lining to the I cloud that has so long been hanging j over her. j The Western mine has taken the lead with a rash, and bids fair to run the Queen Co. closely for premier position, but the latter will astonish I investors directly, and many will bite their fingers when they realise the fact that ihey have let pass the opportunity for securing shares at the ridiculous quotations that have ruled. The Western went to extremes in purchasing a Luhrig plant, which will cost the company at least £10,000 before everything is complete, and in addition to this sum a ' royalty ' will have to be paid on the concentration. All the work required could have been accomplished at a cost much below the figure named. The Western hopes shortly to be in a position to declare...

HOBART HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. AUTUMN SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 6 May 1893

Hobart Horticul tural Society. AUTUMN SfiOW. The mitumn showf of ijbp Hpbaxt, Horti cultural Society, opened .ocl^ iy^wpsday' afternoon last by His fece)l«jcy'fhe Ad ministrator of the Government,^ waa in every respect a complete success. The number of exhibits was perhaps not so huge as in former years, but what lacked in quantity was more than made up in, quality. ° The display of fruit and vege tables was the finest ever seen in Tasmania, and probably could not be surpassed in the world. On entering the building the visitor found himself in the southern wing where there were trophies of fruit and vegetables, besides a show of vehicles and agricultural implements. The fruit trophy of Messrs. W. Sayers and Son, of Quayle street, Sandy Bay, was of a very unique design, and was greatly admired. Next to this trophy was the exhibit of Mr. W. E. Skoobridge, of Glenora, consisting of a beautiful!-? designed fruit trophy, which was awarded the society's gold medal. Mr. Fremlin, of Glenorc...

CONCERNING WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 6 May 1893

Concerning Women. Some rude person, of course he was a man, though the word person is usually reserved for our sex, upon being asked if he had read The Clipper, said if he had a penny to spare he would prefer to buy a ! Satur Jay's Argus. Had he sense, he would read The Clipper before his pennyworth of .Ir^usponderosity, as the gourmet takes an oyster before hiB dinner. All dramatic companies are not equally well patronised here. I learn on very good authority that Mrs. Eeightley, who was to receive half the proceeds of the plays in which she appeared, really got nothing for her two performances. Everyone knows the terrible strain of the profession, and it seems hard that actors and actresses should have only a precarious livelihood in the art to which they have given their time and talents. But that must be the case with all artists, a few great prizes there are, and for the majority toil and trouble, without even the ' bubble reputa tion' to sustain them. The Browning night at St....

FREE SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 6 May 1893

fREE SPEE6H. Is the Australian banking system a failure? That there is something very rotten has been only too well verified during the last few weeks. Since the period of the great shipping strike the question of a National Bank has been one of the leading planks in the Labor platform. The workers in making it so certainly have had no definite ideas an to how this model bank should be worked, nor did they recognise that the commercial world of Australia was built on quicksands that were bo soon to engulf their un fortunate victims. # # * The Labor Party had found in their struggles against Capital that they had the whole influence, and weight of the monetary insti tutions against them, and that these gigantic octopi had no interest in the general welfare of the body of the people — they simply existed to get fat and declare large dividends, and hence the unions have come to the conclusion that as the Govern ments have proved themselves able to build and work an elaborate railway By...

MUSINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 6 May 1893

MUSINGS. [By Jacques.] The V.D.L. Bank closed its doors on August 3, 1891. Since then there has been no proper searching inquiry into the causes of the bank's failure, with a view to proceedings, and no prosecution of the men who brought the failure about. tk at * After the bank stopped payment the Hon. P. O. Fyeh most improperly interfered in its concerns. Improperly as a member of the Government, as a former director, and as a customer, and he was not a fit and proper person to be on the committee of investiga tion. # * # When the bank failed the Govern ment volunteered, with the connivance of Parliament, to help the bank, and in an unconstitutional manner pledged themselves to assist any solvent bank which would come forward and pi-event the liquidation of the V D.L. Bank. A loan was to be advanced of £200,000 for two years. The disgraceful trickery and shuffling which followed are well known, and left tbe impression that there never had been any l'eal inten tion to assist, excep...

FOOTBALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 6 May 1893

Football Notes. TBr '»uck.'1 My attention has been drawn to a column of the choicest slang-banging that appeared in tbe weekly Tasma nian Wail last week, having reference to the doings of tbe Football Associa tion and footballers. The article is so devoid of truth that it carries it6 own refutation. At the outset the scurrilous scribe writes : — 'Last year the rowdyism alienated a lot of quon dam friends, and so far tbe associa tion has given absolutely do pledge that things will now be different.' To show the utter falsehood contained in the foregoing paragraph it need only be stated that last year not a single case of bad language or rowdy ism was reported to or investigated by the committee. In proof of this we quote the words of the honorable gentleman who pre sided at the annual meeting of tbe Football Association. Sir Lambert Dobson, speaking- of the marked im provement which bad taken place in, the game, said : — This year, I am happy to say, I do not think I have heard — and...

Music and the Stage. [By Keino.] Mr Walter Bentley's reception as Hamlet at the Theatre Royal last evening augurs, well for an excep tionally successful season in Hobart. Desnite the dull weather, and the still duller times, the house was well filled in every part, the dress circle, headed by His Excellency the Admin istrator and party, presenting an animated appearance. The eminent tragedian from beginning to end justified all the unqualified eulogiums that have been showered upon him by theatregoers across the straits, and kept his audience enthralled to the very final scene. He has secured a very efficient and pleasing entourage, which takes away from the interest ing performance the usual ',star ' character we are bo often made familiar with. Mr Cris (Horatio), Miss Vivienne (Ophelia), Mr M. (rowan (Polonius), Mr Russell and Miss Bishop (King and Queen), and Mr W. R.
