MOUNT LYELL RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 26 May 1894

MOUNT LYELL RAILWAY. The community is agreed that the Mount Lyell railway should be built, ne it would at once open up a long r^ign of prosperity to Tasmania. Reports confirm one another that there is more mineral iu eicrht at Mount Lyell than even at Zeohan. The railway to Zeehan in one of the beat assets in the colony and is paying. Therefore, onr Parliament might well compel Ministers to undertake the erection of another such line, although these are retrenchment times. Ab re gards the bill introduced into the House giving power to a private company to borrow £150,000 upon debentures guaranteed by the Govern ment the action can scarcely be termed ' cheek' because the company would doubtless be only too glad to let the Government build the line, for they are quite content with their rich find ; but finding themselves in a bole they have come to Parliament for assistance. In Bpite of the im mense advantages it is to be hoped that the assistance will not be given under the bill us a...

SEDITIOUS LANGUAGE FOR A LITTLE LOOSE TALK. A MAN IS SENT UP FOR NINE MONTHS' HARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 26 May 1894

Seditious Language. FOH A LITTLE LOOSE TALK. A MAH IS SENT UP FOE NINE MONTHS' IIARU. . The trial of James Smith, on a charge ol using seditious language at Mount Morgan, in.the Circuit Court, before the Chief Justice (Sir S. t\r. Griffiths), was productive of a re markable scene. The prisoner, a man of good education, described himself as a herbalist. . Ho had, says Tbuth, been in Queensland for 18 months, and had travelled the country, delivering lectures on political subjects. The subject of the lecture on the occasion which led to his arrest was 'The Coming Revolu tion.' An Rttcmpt was made by the police to prove py means of a photograpy hhe identity of the accused with a man named Thomas Murray, who was sentenced to three years' hard labor for larceny in Brisbane,in 1890. This attempt completely broke down, the prisoner ridiculing the idea and submitting himself to a bodily examination in tjhe dock, in order to see whether there were any tattoo marks on him.

"THE UPROAR." [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 26 May 1894

' The Uproar.'1 [By Scribbler.! Bradshaw-Major, E.C.L., you or your little band of operatists are in dinger! There is a spirit of cliqueisni being bred in your midst, which will lead to trouble. It seems that on the occasion of the presenta tion of the baton (and a more useless article could hardly have been fixed upon) some of the members had not been asked to contribute to the gift, and this fact caused considerable discontent, as all would have liked to show in a small way their appreciation of your untiring' energy in the late production of ' Martha,'' and not desired it to be a mark of affection from a leading feu; Keep your eyes and ears open and hasten to make every one understand that be or she is one of the bundle of sticks bound together in unity, without which there will by dissension and probably disruption.

A BRUTAL LANDOWNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 26 May 1894

A BRUTAL LANDOWNER. A great deal of feeling was expressed at Campania last week, against one of the so called owners of the carl). This particularly well-contemptci individual was driving with his wife, ,\vhcn an unfortunate baby boy, four ycaw of age, toddled on to the road and was in imminent danger of being run over. The lady in the vehicle strove to catch hold of the reins to pull up, but was prevented from doing so by her lord and master. He preferred to cut the baby with his whip. The lash wound round the poor little fellow's leg, and the infant was dragged down and aloug the ground, the wife still trying to get the reins to pull up. Fortu nately the lash gave way, and the wee toddler was released without being seriously injured. By this time the barbarous man was induced by his more considerate better half to pull up, and several bystanders expostulated with him for his action. He grunted that the child had no right in tho road. The local policeman, who was pre sent, had the ...

A leginning must be made somewhere, aud who so good 'o start with as Her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen. During the interregnum through change of managemont things were left at the mercy of a total stranger to (lie work, who began and ended his pro mised saving in the alleged waste by dock ing the miners half a candle a shift, and crowed as only bantams cau over the achievement.

Football Notes. [Bt Ruck.] The announcement that 20 players would play the next 25 at Eisdon last Saturday was evidently not enticing enough for the public, as the attendance was very limited. Not one half of the 45 players chosen turned up, so that the initial match of the season under the new regime was a very half-heartod affair. However, a match took place between the few players who were present with Nicholson and Abbott as captains of tbe respective teaniB.
