THE SANITARY ASS AND ITS LATE COADJUTRIX. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 24 February 1894

THE SANITARY ASS AND ITS LATE COADJUTRIX. The Sanitary Ass. is sick uuto death. The secretary's salary has n«t been paid for the last twelve months and several other creditors would like a settlement. The sec. has resigned, a circular is to be issued calling members together to view the aspect of the ass and a sub committee has been appointed to sit on |the animals remains, probably with the object of realising a little money from his hide and bones. The former is sure to be tough, and the latter, especially the backbone, might be presented to the energetic ladies to be worked up in connection with the mysteries of their wardrobe as whalebone is becoming scarce and dear. The uss's bones should make a good substitute, as they were always very pliable — particularly the back bone. Called into being as a protest against the neglect and dilatoriness of the Municipal Council the Sani tary Association had the misfortune to link itBelf to a very select coterie of tuft hunters, whose sole a...

Fortunatus, who won the Newmarket last year, is reported to be m splendid con dition. His chances for the same event this year are said to be rosy. Glsnloth, who created such a sensation when he won the Melb. Cup, is running in a paddock ait Drouin, Gippsland. Stromboli made a fast run over six fur longs in America the other day, with 7.10 up doing the distance in l.lSf . The Aus tralian record is 1.144. The Sydney hurdlers Barcan and Anar row have been sola to go to the land of rajahs and rice. A sportsman contributor says : — There appears to have been a battle royal over in Tasmania between the rival 'pushes,' Victoria and Tasmania. Hamping was rife, bnt the local push seem to have had all the best of the battle, and one or two of the Victorian divison remain behind in the hospital. It appears that at a pony meet ing some of (he Tawnatiian roughs attacked a well-known Victorian paddock fielder, the Melbourne mob took the quarrel up, and a free fight, or rather a series of free fi...

CIVIL SERVICE REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 24 February 1894

CIVIL SERVICE REFORM. Dear Clippee, — With whal a how! of indignation the Muckery man and More Anon describe the lapse of any unfortu nate messenger or other equally low in the social ladder individual, who, unfortu nately forgets that honesty is the best policy. But it is notable that these highly sensitive and pitriotic (?) inkslingers are always conspicuous by their silence when any snob or great man makes a mistake, aad in no instance has this been so notorious as in the laches of Post Office and other big Government Nabobs. Note, sir, with what indignation . assumed or other wise, Old Granny of Mtcquarie-street and Lbe Divine Sara's mouthpiece described the somewhat startling disclosures in conuec tioi ivith thu messenger the other day. Contrast the howl these defenders of justice and integrity set up in this case with the ominous silence they maintained iu the notorious I OU biz., and also the affair of the defalcations of a late official iu the P. O. department, and I think t...

A SCENE IN CHICAGO. A CROWD OF HAGGARD AND HUNGRY FACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 24 February 1894

A SCENE IN CHICAGO. A CROWD OK HAGGARD AND HUNGRY FACES. ' There were so ninny thousand loaves to dispense in so many minutes. The cowed and shambling crowd were herded for all the world like Texas steers at a round-up, corralled in their misery. That we should behold such a scene on the soil of America is a fouler blot upon its history than the auction block in Washington, where chattel slaves were sold under the shadow ot the capitol. In that crowd of thousands we saw not one woman ; had one vent mod she would have been crushed and trampled under foot. There were bnggard and hungry faces, and when these emerged a( the other door with the long black loaf they often twisted off the dry crust of one end mid thrust it between their famished lips. There were others in line who smoked and rend the papers us they waited. There were others whoso cunning, wenzel eyes twinkled, as they evidently thought it a good jolte ; but ench mim us he came out with his loaf and strove to hide it in hnn...

THE JUNIORS.— By Point. It was thought that Glenorchy would make a good show against Itokeby, but Sid. Ward found their weak spots and obtained 5 wickets for 19 and Richardson also bowled well; getting 3 for 10. E. Free was top scorer with 35, W. Richardson 2;i, S. Watd 22, and Chipman 20 also getting into double figures. Trinity had an easy win against Ormonde by 7 wickets and 100 runs. Roberts, not oui, 42 — although three easy chances are debited against him, especially one at leg where he hits a lot up— and Cleary 37 wore the leading scorers. Goodfellow 18 and Shield 11 were the only double-figure con tajfoutors for Ormonde. Endeavour had an easy win against City, tho hitter not having their strongest team. Dawn suffered another defeat at the hands of West Hobart. McDowall (43) batted well for West ; in fact he scores nearly every match. St. Mary's had another close match with Union Jack, the latter only winning by 3 runs. Mitchell (not out) 32 batted well for St. Mary's, and Cr...

Now wfeyj the suggestion should be for the pri va$£ consideration of shareholders only none but the directors can explain.

Monday brought a farewell performance of Pollard's, at the Exhibition Building, which (rested us to some really good and sympathetic singitg, when the youngsters sbowo 1 m my of our more ad vanced, locals how things ought to be sung. Master Alfred StevetiB may be quoted as a pattern to our 'comics,' how 'The Hooligans,' ?? Three a penny ' should be treated. He was simply capital. Miss Mitchell's 'Gondolier's' song-, Misses Metealfeand Wilson's 'Sailor sighs,' and the Gondoliers' Quintette, by Misses Mot calfe, Boatty, Wilson, Masters Quealy and Stepbeus were superior to what we usually hear. Mr. Arthur King made a real muBi cal director, a rara avit here.

The hitter dab in their first mnings put up 421, mainly through the brothers Savigny, who scored 149 and 189 respectively. I.auuceston won the mutch on the first innings by 297 runs. Wellington set New Town the colossal score of 648 to face. Of course the sub urbanites were not equal to the task, and were defeated in the easiest possible manner in one innings.

He assaulted his wife the other day, but the better half promptly knocked the ex-champion on the nut with an Indian club.
