THE MINEOWNERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 12 May 1894

THE MINE0WNBRS' ASSOCIATION. Dear CLirrER, — It is said that there is a modicum of absurdity in the most heart rending incident i but the egregious torn-; foolery of the mineownerfe— if the unfor tunato ones who bold 100 out of say 16,000 shares mav be called mineowners— in sending the delegates they did, eurpasseth all understanding. It is believed «n Zeehan that the doputationiste are self oloctod and self-conntituted, in fact, a colonial triumvirate of which ' tho three tailors of Tooley-street' were the proto types. Allowing that tlioro is such an institution as the M.O.A., they would have deputed the beat, ablest, and hbhestost among them to interview miners. It is to be hoped that they sent no one who has been posted at tho Stock Exchanges of the colonies ; no one who has run the gauntlet of the Broken Hill Block 10 mining boom. To return to the subject in hand. The members of the A.M. A. committee, not being chunks altogether, saw the deputa tion's game, and calculated and ar...

An Erratic Parson. SHORT SERVICE AND A SHORT SHIFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 12 May 1894

An Erratic Parson. SHORT SERVICE AND A SHORT SHIFT. The vagaries of tho country magistrates, lolice authorities, and the conoomilant legal burlesques are well known in the city, but it might at least be taken for granted that the welfare of our country oousins' 'everlasting souls' is well at tended to and every effort ifi made to ' save them from the burning i' and that in matters theological our various church organisations furnished variety without deterioration of quality. Fond imagina tion has likewise pictured the Arcadian beauty singularly attentive to the Shep herd's veslments.and as f or hismore corporeal comforts, such as smoking caps, foot warmers, slippers and mufflers, the supply far exceeds requirements, whilst more ex perienced matrons and matured maidens are not less diligent in providing the ' dear minister' with a bountiful supply of knitted socks, etc. In return for all these and sundry other benefits, such as tit bits for his larder, not to mention the tenderest p...

Done to Death. A STARVED MAN HANGS HIMSELF. ONE MOOTH TOO MANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 12 May 1894

Done to death. A STARVED MAN HANGS HIMSELF. ONE MOUTH TOO MANY. ' There is one mouth too many.' That, says Melbourne Herald, is the deeply pathe tic explanation of the tragedy in Coronet street, Newmarket. A sadder story has seldom been told in an Australian news paper, even in this period of State-aided stagnation, whan sad stories, often frauerht with tragedy, are only too fearfully common. Alexander M'Dougal was in full flush of manhood, an engineer by trade, married, and the- father of three children. For 13 weeks he walked the city, as so many unfortunate men have done of late, sucking for the means of earning bread for his wife aud little ones, but seeking in vain. A sick wife is a terrible handicap to a work ing mau at any time — a cracl one indeed when week aft'jr be finds hiniselt unable 1 1 earn wages. Such a handicap accentuated tbe deep distress in which M'Dougal found himself. Tke in .u'u spirit gave way under the strain. Yesterday, so far as he was con cerned, came the...

MINING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY AN EARNEST MEETING They go the pace nt Wyalong— as itnieerl they do on most new raining fields. Those who congregate there are, as a rule, s.iys the Harrier Miner, about 20 years ahe.id of the time — sometimes more, sometimes less— and if one wants to know what is likely to be the fnct a few years ahead, one may as a rule inquire whnt the '? rushcrg ' desire. Peter Lalor, ex-Speaker, patriot aud statue bonored.was at Eureka an agitator, a rioter and a rebel who had forfeited his life. So it may be with those nt Wyalong. where there are five or six thousand men, mostly ardent politicians. They must, have their meetings, and, of course, raining on private lands is the text that falls easiest into their lmnds. At one, held laot Monday week; presided over by Arthur Desmond, that remarkable New Zcalander who has writtcu as good stimng, poetry as Australia lias seen, 3000 people were present; and to young P.olkinghonie, the lad whom gaoling embittered, wa6 cu tr...

A PREVIOUS FIRE. Three years ago a fire occurred in tho Mt. Stuart neighborhood. In this case there stood two wooden cottages, about 3 or 4 feet apart. The one burnt furiously, the other being saved by neighbors \ising wet blankets and throwing water on with buckets, etc. The firemen arrived in time to see the one house in embers on the ground and the danger of the other one to a great extent over. The same brigade general wanted to pull down the end of tho lemaining cottage, because of a little smoke issuing from the board.
