SPORTS AND PASTIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
SPORTS AND PASTIMES. The sporting instint is apparently reviving in the island. A large num- ber of equine race meets have been got off, and the majority have proved financially successful. The summer carnivals at Hobart and Launoeston in February were extensively patronised, and the racing was good. Flintlock, a son of the famous Carbine, and a Victorian-owned horse, won both the Cups. Tasmanian horses that have been sent to try their speed on the Victorian courses have as a rule ac- quitted themselves with crelit. &nbsp; Throughout the island now the total- isator is under Government supervi- sion, and steps have been taken to cur- tail the number of smaller meets. On March 24 the well-know blood stallion Meteor, by St. Albans, died at Mala- hide, leaving some promising stock be- hind him. Cricket has shown signs of progress, and some of our players have exhibited good form this season. Nor- thern and Southern teams have met as usual, and the record now stands North, 29 wi...

TASMANIA AND THE EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
TASMANIA AND THE EMPIRE. If the question were asked, what has been the most important event of the year? the reply would inevitably be "the despatch of the Tasmanian con- tingent." In October the Boers in South Africa declared war against the motherland, and there was instantly a response from the colonies. Offers were made and accepted to despatch contingents, and Tasmania was not behindhand. Never, perhaps, in its history has the colony been stirred to its depths as it was on that memorable day in October when eighty Tasmanian "soldiers of the Queen" left our shores to take part in the campaign. Launces- ton on that occasion presented a scene of unparalleled enthusiasm, which was reproduced on a larger scale in every colony of the group. The passage of the necessary vote through Parliament was unfortunately marred by the intrigues of pettifogging party politi- cians, who sought to serve their own ends by obstruction; but they were out- voted, and subsequent events have proved how ...
POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
POLITICAL. The political history of the colony has been troubled during the year. When the Braddon Administration met Parliament in May it was in a sadly disorganised condition so far as busi- ness was concerned. Shortly after the session opened it suffered a severe loss in the death of the Hon. A. T. Pil- linger, Minister of Lands, whose ster- ling honesty of purpose had won for him a host of friends. The Chief Secretary also had been suffering from ill-health, and the bulk of the work fell on the Premier-Treasurer, Sir Ed- ward Braddon. The first financial statement of the member for West Devon was a businesslike document, which gave promise of future hopes which unfortunately were not re- deemed. Mr. W. Burbury filled the vacancy for Oatlands, and Captain Edward Miles, of Glamorgan, that of Minister of Lands. The latter gentle- man also shaped well at the outset, but rumours in connection with the Strahan Marine Board, of which he was a member, brought forth a series of charges a...
