Fitzgerald Bros.' Circus. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 April 1894

Fitzgerald Bros,1 Circus. Fitzgerald Bros.' mammoth cirous and menagerie arrived in Hobart on Thursday, and opened in their huge lent in the evening, when there was a crowded atten dance. From the commencement of the proceedings to the cloBe the fan is fast and furious, and as there is no interval, and the entertainment goes on for about three hours, it will be seen that the people get plenty for their money. Of the horses. Commodore, Dan Fitzgerald's piebald pony, is a perfect wonder, and shows what a horse can be trained to do. The Broncho horses and several others in the show are further evidences of Mr. Fitzgerald's capabilities as a trainer. The trick riding of Miss Nellie Lyndhurst was much ad mired, especially the daring feat of picking up a handkerchief while at full gallop. The acrobats came in for a deal of applause, and the funnyisms of the clowns caused pe ilsof brighter. Miss Bidgeway's graceful performance on the invisible wire, and Mr. Sidgeway's trapeze act were both...

WEST COAST WAGES DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 April 1894

WEST COAST WAGES DIFFICULTY. Dear Clipper, — Sight is righteous, and under present conditions needs righteous advocates — men whose hearts and minds are inspired with goodwill to their fellows. Such apparently, I am sorry to say, is not the case, as expressed in the ' Secretary's opinion,' as published by you in your issue of the 31st ult. A. certain condition of things exists, viz.: — We have a mining field rich in silver and lead aw uting the intelligent and in dustrious stroke of the miners' pick and hammer ; hundreds of thousands of pounds have been spent to prove the field, and the result of such expenditure lias given us the field as it is to-day (a big asset to Tas mania), and has benefited the colony at large, and the wage-earner in particular ; but now through circumstances over which we have no control, silver and lead are too low in price to warrant the majority of the mines continuing active operations at the present cost of labour. (This condition is acknowledged by the...

Mining Notes and Tips [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 April 1894

Mining Notes and Tips [Bt Gnome.] . A. great many guesses have been made as to who ' Gnoine ' can be, and as usual such guesses have boon wide of the mark. One thing can be said of 'Gnome,' that he has broken down the system of ' bulling ' ?p,nd 'bearing' the Stocks that so long proved a curse to the mlij^ng community ; ^J,o+ lia Iiuji nvnmuul vrrnnCKi that rGauired righting; that he lias -opebed up to day light abuses that have too long been per mitted to sap confidence in mining manage ment j that he has given correct ' tips ' as to the value of stocks offered on exchange ; and that he has given expression to public opinion re the bad praotioe of brokers being allowed to sit as directors and the secrecy of directors in witholding informa tion that should have been common property at the earliest possible moment. ' Gnome ' has the satisfaction of knowing that his notes are widely read and acted upon with the confidence he always hopes to merit. During January and February Broken Hi...

BLACK DINGO. [P.v J. J. Sheridan.] CHAPTER XV. Continukd. The old fellow was very sensitive about his name and he responded to Smart's remark 'My science tells me you are smart — you are.' The youth drew back astonisned while Quill burst into a hearty lauerh. ' Tour scieuce tells you my name !'' cried the youngster. *' Are you a wizard P' 'It tells me what you. are:1' rejoined Smiles soberly. Quill tried1 to draw the detective, and after several in effectual attempts exclaimed ' It is no longer any use of your attempting to conceal the fact from me — that pliotograph— your questions — clearly indicate that foul plajr has occurred in connection with Mr, Oldcouutry.

FREE SPEE6H. THE NEW TEAM AND PUBLIC OPINION.

Of mmw fVm «rv nf the Dohsonian party is still repeated that any taxa tion proposals should have been swal lowed at this present juncture, which literally means that rather than de lay the so-called balancing of the ledger the people should be reduced to starvation, and all industries crippled. Last year the terrors of repudiation were to fall upon us as a mighty avalanche, unless the mea sures of Dobson and Co. were swal lowed holus-bolus. Fet they were thrown out, aud the colony survived. In fact things have been quietly re covering! aud we successfully ne gotiated a loan. So much for re pudiation. In fact the cry must be written down as the bray and he-haw of a set of don...

A Razzle-Dazzle Parson. AUSTRALIAN IDOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 April 1894

A Razzle-Oazzle Parson. AUSTRALIAN IDOLS. A rather novel way of embellishing a sermon was introduced to the worshippers at the Baptist Church, North Adelaide, a couple of Sundays back. The preacher, the Rev. Mr. Ellis, 'from London and Melbourne,' took for his subject ' Aus tralian Idols,' and in the course of his address held aloft to the agonising gaze of his congregation two tobacco pipes, a brandy and a whisky bottle (empty, of course), a jockey whip, a box of dice, cards, dancing pumps, a mirror, a novel, and some imitation gold. Ho eloquently ex patiated on the demoralising effect of idolising these sort of things, and seemed to pretend to imagine that his hearers were some of the real elect, and had never seen such idols before. The church has been without a paster for some time, and it is surmised that Mr. Ellis, who has heen a reverend itinerant showman for some time past, worked up his sporting display in the hopes of getting a call. ^The fisher of men has netted his prize...

A Jungle Jumble. BAKING UP THE PARSONS WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 April 1894

A Jungle Jumble. RAKING UP THE PARSONS WAGES. PontvilLe and its surroundings have been topsy-turvy for some time paet, at least the Anglican portion of it, for the congre gation of the Anglican Church had failed to stump up, consequently Johnny the rector was in a quandary, for no man likes to be cheated out of his wages. But like an inspiration came the idea, ' We'll have a jumble fair,' and the fair or dark one that proposed it deserves some thanks for the fun and chatter it has caused. The tabbies met and discussed the pros and cons over the tea table and in the street, and oue young lady, a real green'un, ajiJ a prime mover in the show, has persistently stuck to calling it a ' jungle ' fair, and you hear oh every side, 'Where is tho jungle fair to be held ?' Of course the boys naturally imagined they would have a gay old time, for to get anything like a jungle they must go well into tho scrub, and of course that meant high jinks ; and didn't the boys' faces fall when they heard ...

Boxing. CHARLIE MURPHY V. JIM BAXTER. TWENTY HOT ROUNDS. A DRAW. The boring contest between Charlie Murphy and Jim Baxter which took place at the Derwent Athletic Club, Harrington Street, on Monday evening last drew tho largest assemblage that ever witnessed a similiar event in Tasmania. When pro ceedings commenced every nook and corner of the room was occupied, many had to bo content with a view through the window. Of the audience the Murphy contingent was strongly represented, especially North Hobart, Ills stronghold, that part of the city furnishing a great push, who, led by ' Bustler Bill,' were boisterous at times in defence, of their favorite. About 8. 4o. Cully Griffin and eddy Fry gave a pre liminary four-round scrap in which the former had all the best of it. This was followed by a good go between Albury Clifford and Harry Miller. After a vexatious and altogether unnecessary delay, at about ten minutes to 10 Charlie Murphy entered the ring with Burdie Clifford and Harry Mil...
