LETTERS OF S. A. TVER. XVII. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 April 1894

LETTERS OF S. A. TVER. No. XVII. Dbajj Clipper, — I propose in this letter to give a short sketch of my experiences in the country, and also of some of the characters with whum I have been brought into contact. I may premise my remark* by saying that I was the youngest son of a poor gentleman living in one of the agricultural districts of England, and as is so often the case with the younger members of families the conclusion was slowly forced upon me ithnjbjif I H»ere to tnake a liviug for myself and for such encumbrances as my own folly — or in the technical cant of the day. Providence — might bestow upon me, I must seek fresh fields and pastures new. Having arrived in Tasmania some two or three years back I endeavored for some time to make both ends meet in Hobart j but failing in that attempt and having still a few pounds at my disposal I took advantage of the recent Dobson Land Act to select SO acres of hind in that egregious Premier's political empire. Having paid my deposit, ...

BLACK DINGO. CHAPTER XVI. AT THE ALTAR [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 April 1894

BLACK DINGO, fBl J. J. SHEBtDAK.] CHAPTER XVI, At TffB Altar. The day fixed for the wedding ceremony opened with a brilliant sky. The air fresh and exhilarating moved etwadily southward bearing ^hq cries with whioh beast and bitd saluted the morning. Woodville had passed the nieht in prayer and meditation. and now with heavy eyes stared listlessly through, the open window. The clamorous orisons of bush and homestead, softened by distance, sounded in his ear like the indistinct runtteringe of an uneasy sleeper, and the sighing pines kept sad accom paniment to his dreary thoughts. Melancholy thoughts were they, and bitter with poignant memories of her beauty — her voice — and of the joyous future he had dreamed. 'Fool' he murmured.' I dared to plan the com ing days* saying in my folly, 'Here is the pleasant avenue adown which we are to wander hand in hand, she and I. Fate has ordained, our union, that we shall love and be as a glimpse of paradise one unto the. other.' And now the day ...

For choice, next to gastronomic gymnasts, he prefers ashing, and he choses wisely, for owing to the generally unexciting nature of the catches made in Tasmanian rivers Gormanston is not likely to die ofappo ploxy, accelerated by fatty degeneration, yet it is not free from danger as only quite recently he had a humming time on Shannon's bank. The fishing was decidedly slow and the bank got tired of supporting Vice-Eoyality — some day the democracy of Sasmania will become ditto— and it quietly, without a warning crack, deposited the Governor in the river.

Jabez Balfour. THE SNUFFLING FINANCIER AND HIS PALS. It is told of the snuffling financier, Jabez Spencer Balfour' that he. Captain Verney, M.P. (who was convicted of enticing a young English girl to Paris for immoral purposes'), and De Cobian (who was pvineip.il in a particularly disgusting scandal), used, with one or two other ?numbers, to hold little prayer meetings in the tea-room of the House of Commons. Also Jabez is remembered as a fat, greasy, wheezy, over-dressed, pomaded, and per fumed little man ; Verney as one who used to visibly shudder if anyone |let out a big, big D in his immediate vicinity, and yet at the very time this whitewashed sepulchre was actually paying a Parisian procuress large sums in order that he might satisfy his vile lusts. Of three afternoon prayer partakers, De Cobain is in gaol for unmen tionable immorality, Verney has been, and is, etill in gaol, whilst the third, Jabez Silencer Balfour, should soon be on his way to England and the prisoner's dock...

OATLANDS ELECTrON. Deab Clipfeb, — We fully expected to eee Mr. Piliinger elected unopposed, as it gave us great pleasure when we found him appointed Minister of Lands. Imagine onr disgust at finding Mr. W. Burbury nominated against him. Of coarse, there can be no doubt as to the issue of the elec tion, for Oatlands voters know better than to deprive themsalves of the honour of having as their member a Mmi»tw of the Crown. They know it is not an empty honour as far as tie welfare of the district if concerned, seeing tbat one in power can do a great deal for bis constituents. More over, why should we put out one who can point to the creditable record of over 17 years' hoceet advocacy of onr claims : one who bears the highest chararffr in the Hooe«, eves among hit opponents, for straightforwardness and ieai?

FITZGERALD'S CIRCUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 April 1894

FITZGERALD'S CIRCUS. Fitzgerald's Circus has been playing all the week to splendid houses, interrupted only on Monday night last, when, owing to the storm, the tent could not bn raised. On the following night there was a very large audience, including tho Governor. The performance was somewhat marred by an accident which occurred whilst several ladies- wore going through the ladder exercise. Mrs. Fitzgerald was seriously injured, and Miss Nellie Lyndhurst was also badly hurt. On Wednesday afternoon the matinee was very successful, and again in the evening there was a Largo crowd. The menagerie was largely patronised, and keen interest was manifested in the collection of animals! Mr Dan Fitzgerald has made hitnsclf very popular during his stay here, and his ability as a trainer is evinced by his ponies Commodore and Tom and the Broncho horses. All the members of the company acquitted themselves well in their respective parts, and each received the plaudits of the audience. Owing to t...

Miming Notes and Tips [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 April 1894

Mining Notes and Tips [Br Gnome.] Now that silver hnB fallen so low, and seeing that the Silver Queen Mine is not turning out nearly the quantity of ore anticipated when salaries were increased at the mine, Mould it nol be well for the directors earnestly to consider the question of letrenchment. The mining manager receives JE12 per week, an underground manager receives £5 per week, a clerk and assayer £3 per week, and quite recently the manager's son (a mere lad) was added to the list of employees on the pay sheet as dork, at 5s. per diem. This item appears to have been loo much for the directors and they very rightly instructed the manager to strike it off future pay sheets. The quantity won from the mine his again been wired, but as usual share holders are left to guess whether the 60 tons includes the ore won by the tributors at No.2 shaft, and they have again to. comp'ain that no assays have been givenl I iutend to harp upon these points until returns are given as they are give...
