Butchers on Strike. AGAINST THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 April 1894

Butchers on Strike. AGAINST THE POLICE. For the past two or three years the butchers who assemble at the Slaughter yards sale hav- been in the habit of having a bit of fun each sale day all amongst themselves, in which, althongh boisterous at times, no particular damage was done to anyone. Sol. Rheuben, the Corporation inspector and boss of the yard, has always taken exception to this horso-play, aud on several occasions has brought the police to the sales to prevent prauke being carried on. The more annoyed Sol. became, of course the jokers were the better pleased, and carried on in a hilarious manner until Mr. Rheuben thought it necessHry to appeal to the Council for protection. In spired paragraphs were inserted in the daily papers to the effect that larrikinism was rampant at the abattoirs, and an example ought to be made of some one. The Corporation, instead of treating the matter with contempt, ordered a policeman to attend the yards on Mondays and Thursdays, sale daj-«. Last ...

Two Divorce Yarns. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 April 1894

Two Divorce Yarns. i Two dirorc '..yarflS- come from Ameuca, (1.) A married couple mot a 'broth* and sister. The hunband fell in love with the sister, the wife with the brother. The wife and the brother went to Paris ; the hushaud stayed behind to look after the sinter. The hus'und }f't a divorce, and wired over to his l.iie wife ; and that mine ereuing the two couplpe were wedded. (2.) An Iusurai.co ag.iiuBt Divorce Society has been established, having its head office at Chicago. A couple when joined together, afterwards, may join the society, paying a fixed admission fee, aud also a fixed assessment fee every time a divorce occurs among the membership. The benefits accrue to the defendant in case of a divorce. It was the prime in tention to give the successful plaintiff, as being most likely the innocent party, the benefit, but it whb concluded that this «ould induce .in increase in the divorce rate, and a consequent moral hazard, which would be fatal to the company.

Boxing. CHARLIE MURPHY v. JIM BAXTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 April 1894

Boxing. CHARLIE MURPHY v. JIM BAXTER. The mill between Charlie Murphy and Jim Baxter, the best of 20 rounds, for the light-weight championship of Tasmania, has been definitely fixed to take place on Monday evening next, at the Derwent Athletic Club, Harrington-Btreet. Charlie Murphy will fight at about lOst., while Jim Baxter will go a little over it, so there is not much difference in the weights. Both men look in the pink of condition and are very anxious to meet in the ring. The men may both be said to be Tasmanian boxers, especially Baxter, who is a native of the island, and has done all his fighting in it. Charlie Murphy fought in Australia as the Tasmaman boxei, he having boxed several times in Launceston where he resided for some time. It is to be hoped that the sup portcrb of both parties will allow the contest to proceed on Monday evening without interruption. This remark seem* necessary, b cause there is bound to be a (rood deal of excitement, ami unless th.j referee or th...

Mining Notes and Tips [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 April 1894

Mining Notes and Tips [By Q-nome.1 The telegram from the Queen mine stating that native silver was visible in the lode matter was simply amusing. Native silver is by no means the most welcome sigh t to a raining manager, unless it occurs in large lumps, for the matrix to be treated to obtain auy native silver likclv to be fouud in anv of the Zeehan lodes is so great as to render the latter practically worthless. The matter wan really not worth the shilling expended in sending the wire. Native silver can lie found at the Owen Meredith mine, Duudas, as thick as an ordinary lead pencil, but of what use jb it 1 More encouraging reports are coming from the mine as a whole. The ' per fathom ' reports have been wisely dropped. Shareholders are now lookiog for results, ami pay little attention to reports or promises after past bitter experience. It may be safely asserted that the idea of wasting the fjbareholders' money on smelters has now been dropped. Even the 'button- holor ' who declare...

Music and the Stage. fBv Eeino.1 Flotow's comic opera of ' Martha ' cheered the hearts of mothers of the pre sent generation, and is now almost foi-v gotten in its native country, but it was honored on Saturday, Monday, and Tues day by a performance of the Hobart Amateur Operatics, wro resurrected aud galvanised the ponderous German comic ality into such a spirited life that crowded audiences on each occasion testified to its undoubted success, showing that the pro duction had exactly hit the taste of our opera-goers, causing at thesamo time qu;;e a flutter in the dailies' dovecots, from whose musical departments emanated amongst other novelties that the youthful performer's beautiful rontralto added con siderably to the charming representation of ' Martha' — one of thw light soprano parta so coveted by the priina donna of the Im perial opera-houses of the continent — and that the ' applause was lavished with all that profusion which tbe gentle amateur so easily acquires!'

Bill ses he has got the recipie to make them — it runs thusly : — Take ten lbs. of brass filings, two bushels of chaff, a three bushel bag of wind (under great pres sure), a one-note trombone, a stove pipe hat, aud a frock coat ; mix above in a whisky cask and hang out to dry on a line (you must always peg a politician to a line, or when he gits in he wont work right). Its sed by them as tried the above that when made hees a real nointer and can al ways be depended to vote straight — to bully a minstery and out-braze an attorney, which last is a big contract, and I don't think ten pounds of brass quite cnuf for that part of the scheme.

HOLDEN Hubbub. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 April 1894

Hoiden Hubbub, Eftch and every mortal hour it lastB, iu this manner ( the infinite hubbub unslaoltened. LANDLORD'S GREED Tbe wheat crop has been a failure this season for many farmers, and as a result great hardship is being experienced in even covering their rent. As an instance of cold-blooded landlordism the following cannot be beaten. A certain land grabber in the Sorell - Biohmond districts let farms to men on condition that a certain proportion of the crop be paid to him iu lieu of money, haggling to get the biggest cut of the total yield. This year many of his tenants do not tluasli five bushels to the acre — that is the rent fiend's usual proportion — and have sought for relief. They re ceived scant courtesy, however, as this Fatman sent them away telling the unfortunate clod turners that bis wagon wheels were well greased and would be at the various farms as soon as the machines to collar his whack, and he has been as good an his word, leaving iu many instances not a single...

ZEEHAN. THE WAGE QUESTION. [By our Eep.1 Probably for brevity you deleted a portion of my Zeehan letter appearing on the 81st ult., at it allows the ' Secretary's opinion ' to be somewhat misunderstood I take this first opportunity of amending it. As regards the men looking favorably on the proposals of the mining managers it was quite correct as far as it went ; but it should have b«en qualified. The terms by which the proposals would be considered are : — Seeing that during the last lock out everything went well and the men yielded in a graceful manner to the demand* of the holders of sections at work, they now con sider that for the good of the colony, mining, and themselves, reductions should 'begin at tbe top. When the men see an attempt to stop the vast drain on share holders in the way of office and directors' foes, mining managers, and their subs, abnormally large salaries with ' pickings,' then the men would consider favorably suggestions for reductions in their depart ment...

He will proceed forthwith to take up his abode in England, where his duties will include the supervision of a new wine and produce depot to be immediately estab lished for the benefit of South Australian producers. Mr. Playford is no democrat, and his departure from tho shores of this continent will bo a distinct gain to those who believe in the Forward Movement, for it must be admitted that there is a certain class of people amongst us who unfortunately possess no minds of their own, and Mr. Way ford and a few othois like him who 1'appeu to posness wealth and power are looked up lo by these softies as infallible oracles, aud their sophistry taken as gospel.
