MUSINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 13 May 1893

MUSINGS. [By Jacques.] Just upon two years ago the Hon. A. I. Clark addressed a meeting of electors at the Town Hall. In re viewing what he had done he in stanced his amendment of the Licen sing Act : — ' He had been blamed by both the teetotallers and the licensed victuallerSjtheref ore he claimed to have secured an impartial law.' This ob servation, coupled with the Act itself, which is a mass of absurdity and in justice, clearly shows that the non. gentleman was scarcely acquainted with his subject. * # * Hotels and public houses are in tended, not for teetotallers and licensed victuallers, but for the use and benefit of the public, and they serve a really useful purpose. It is the interests of those who use, and have a right to use, such houses which should be first considered. * * * Teetotallers only use the hotel as travellers, and not then if they can avoid it. Their interference is chiefly sentimental. They object to people injuring themselves with spirituous liquors, and al...

FREE SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 13 May 1893

f REE SPEEeH. The panic and bank smashes will cer tainly give a great impetus to the demand for a State Bank, and recon struction will be viewed with some suspicion by the uninitiated in bank ing finance. That wonderful word ' reconstruc tion' that is to make everything in the commercial world stronger than ever sounas very mucn into gumK w Uncle Moscow for a little assistance just to tide over the morrow, hoping that in the meantime something will turn up, giving Uncle Moscow, under the protection of Father John Bull, a still firmer grip of our fair land of the Southern Cross, and this will cause grave trouble to United Australia when she determines to 'reconstruct' on Australian lines — ' Australia for the Australians.' No plan of bank reconstruction wil turn into solid gold the large amount of land property held by the various banks, mortgaged to those institu tions at boom prices, and it will be years before these properties can be sold even at a loss. Very little sympathy will ...

A FRENCH WOMAN'S TALK. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 13 May 1893

A French woman's Talk. Madame Lucien Henri, at a recent meet- ing of Australian Natives' Association, being asked to speak on "Federation" left that   subject almost severely alone, and gave instead her views on men and women. After apologising for her inability to speak the English language perfectly she said :—   You are all convinced that Federation is the most important step to be accomplished   to benefit the future of your country and of all the colonies. Have it then as soon as possible, and at the same time work hard to develop agriculture. Form schools of   agriculture. Have a university for the scientific branches of agriculture— for in our day agriculture is a science— set up model farms; in a word   RAISE THE DIGNITY OF WORK so that a man may not be declasse because he cultivates the ground, but on the con- trary let there be certificates of honor for him, as well as for those who study law or letters.

QUEENSLAND GENERAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 20 May 1893

QUEENSLAND GENERAL ELECTIONS. Another -batch of the Queensland elections took place last Saturday. The defeat of Mr. Lissnor, Minister of Mines, by Mr. George Jackson, a Labor candidate, caused a surprise. Another feature of the elections was the defeat for the second time of Mr. Glassey, the leader of the . Labor party in the late Parliament. Mr. Glassey was defeated on the first occasion for North Brisbane, and on Saturday for Bundamba, his former constituency. The Labor Party on Saturda3r obtained 5 seats out of 11 contested, aud the Government ob tained ouly 4, whilst the Opposition and the Independents secured one each. The Labor party have returned 11 members thus far, and expect to get 4 niore befove the close of the elections.

INTERCOLONIAL BOAT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 20 May 1893

Intercolonial Boat Race. Last Saturday afternoon the seven teenth annual contest took place on the Parramatta River course, and re sulted in an unexpected win for New South Wales. The event was looked upon as a certain wiu for Victoria consequently little or no wagering was indulged in. The New South Welshmen took the lead from the start, and before half a mile was covered, led by a boat's length, even tually winning by about six lengths from Victoria, Queensland being five lengths away from the Vies. The average rate of stroke of the New South Wales crew after the first half mile was 36 per minute, while the Victorians were at 37 and the Queens landers a trifle slower.

MUSIC AND THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 20 May 1893

Music and the Stage. [Bt Kjuno.] We have to chronicle auother very successful week of Walter Bentley's too short tenure of the Theatre Royal's boards. The sensational ' Bells ' filled the house on May 13 quite be yond the size of a usual Saturday night audience. This dtama in a clever adaptation of one of the best of the many novels of Erkman aud Chatrian, the leading writers of Alsace and Lorraine before those provinces came back to the German Empire as the now Reichsland. The plot is well known since the great Irving made his fame through his Matthias years ago, and offers to the performer of the Burgomaster's character the addi tional difficulty of a comparison with its prototype which it invites. Walter Bentley, however, who had the ad vantage of personal intercourse with Irving still put6 6uch an amount of individuality of his own into it that his performance is really original. He tones down the visionary scenes with which the piece abounds with such taste that the pervading g...

LABOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 20 May 1893

Labor Notes. Last Friday evening the Melbourne Trades Hall was decked with crape, out of respect to the memory of Mr. D. R. Wyllie, who died on Wednes day last, and at a meeting of the Council a motion of condolence was passed, after regretful speeches, extolling the virtues of the deceased gentleman. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, aud was largely attended by members of Parliament, representatives of Trades Unions and Friendly Societies. Mr. Trenwith delivered an oration, in the course of which he said that the bearing of Mr Wyllie's short life was in strict accord with the apostolic injunction, ' Bear ye one another's burdens.' The Upper House of New South Wales is composed of a lot of ancient s — some of them known iu 'politics in their younger days, and others nomi nated to that, effete chamber after they had made themselves eligible by ' thrift.'

The movement is receiving very influential support. Imagine the four o'clock block mashers jpubbing and hoeing, milking and fattening pigs. It can't be entertained seriously. As the movement is receiving 'influential' support, probably dummy ing is to be indulged in on a small scale.

MINING NOTES AND TIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 20 May 1893

Mining Notes and Tips TBy ' Gnomb;'] The reticence exhibited in withholding results of the work of the new concen trators at the Silver King mine has at last been broken by the publication of the actual results obtained from 136 tons con centrating ore put through, vie., 80 tons of concentrates. This is excellent in so far as quantity obtained is .concerned, but share holders would still like to know how long it took to concentrate the 135 tons and bow much ore has been concentrated for each 24 hours sinco the concentrates com menced work. The returns in silver are disappointing, but the returns in lead are good. No doubt the ore will improve in quality at a gieater depth. The capacity of the machinery is 17 tons for one shift of eight hours. The output from the Queen mine has been much larger than usual, and as a consequence shares are firmly held. Readers of the Launceston Examiner would like to know who the Zeehan corre spondent of that journal may be. He has evidently got a ' no...

A SENSATIONAL PRIZE FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 20 May 1893

A Sensational Prize Fight. The following description of the Burga Lewis fight, at Helena, Montana, on 5th April, is to hand by the mail : — One of the most sensational prize fights of modern times, in view of the injuries sustained and the powers of endurance displayed, took place here hist night between Jim Burge an Australian, who is known as the 'marble man,' and Billy Lewis, of San Francisco. No fewei than 69 rounds were fought, and it was not until long after Lewis had disabled himself to the extent of breaking both his hands that he was finally knocked out. During the first 30 rounds, Lewis did most of the fighting. He landed continually on Burge's head, hammering his face until it literally looked like a raw beefsteak. Buige all this time refused to be drawn, contenting himself for the most part with ducking his head and dodging hiB opponent's blows. He played a waiting game with extraordinary patience, landing on Lewis only now and then in the long series of rounds. Just bef...
