mines and their Management. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 June 1894

Mies and their Management. [liy Minbb.] 1 am not usually of a despondent com plexion, aud would fain have to speak and write in a more cheerful tone on Tusmauian mining as exemplified on its West Coast. But stern facts stare one, the general public, directors and shareholders in cluded, in the face, and precludes me from writing otherwise. Had I the pen, the tact, and the unconscionable cheek of the representatives of the 'leading journal,' or the gullibility of the average literary hack I probably would see in the manage ment of the Queen — for a consideration — (or instance, the acme of mining manage ment. Iu the Western the weird talent of the fabled Gnome in the burrows of that olaim instead of the Hartz mountains. Unfortunately for me, or rather fortu nately, I have been brought up in the hard school of the ' Black Country,' where a couple of thousand men are kept at work, mine and legally managed with half of the officials and a tithe of tho noise in the papers or puffing para...

Mining Notes and Tips [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 June 1894

Mining Notes and Tips [By Gnome.] ^.k Tho Mount Hoaxloy flKele li^B^pn the general theme of converaftiipji dtti|ne the vreek. Sensible people must iiSve'Mown from the first that the bubble must burst at no distant date. The pity of it is that the colony gets a bad name over the matter, although Tasmania had little or nothing to do with it. Mi, Montgomery acted too impulsively, perhaps, in sending hie first telegram, but his last report shows that he was not ashamed to admit that in some way he had been 'got at.' The best of men may make a Blip at times, and in Mr. Mont gomery's case tbe circumstances are peculiar. The department with which he is connected hurries him about from pillar to post, as if he possessed half a dozen personalities. He was no sooner at Huxley than he was ordered to Lyell, and to this fact may be traced the fact that he did not keep charge of the samples himself, and that his report was not sent in more promptly. In spite of some hard things that are being sai...

Hanging of Williams and Montgomery. THEIR CRIMES AND DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 June 1894

Hanging of Williams and Montgomery. THEIR CRIMES AND DEATH. The criminal history of Australia received an additional page through the execution of Montgomery and Williams at Darlinghurat, Sydney.on May SI. The hanging has un fortunately special interest for Tasmanians as iu conjunction with New South Wales we share the unenviable notoriety of having been the chief depot for Britain'* deported criminals, and the horrors of her blood curdling and diabolical ' system ' and the two colonies are the only portions of the Untisli dominions in which it is now possible that a man may be hanged under like conditions as these two notorious burglars, no life having been taken by them, The people of Sydney were worked up into a frenzy of excitement over the Judicial double murder of the convicts and as a consequence crime has been given undue notice and criminals exalted into the position of martyrs. No less than 25,000 people testified by their signatures to the un justness of the sentence, inc...

FREE SPEECH. WILD CAT BOOMING AT MT. HUXLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 June 1894

FREE SPEE6H. WILD CAT BOOMING AT MT. HUXLEY. At the present lime Tasmania Las everything to gain by getting her mining industries on to a sound basip, and therefore it is most disastrous that anything in the nature of a swindle should be worked. Therefore this matter of the Mount Huxley should be sifted to the bottom, aud exposure at least, if not justice, be meted out to the velvet brigade that bus so damaged Tasmania's reputa tion. Fortunately, hardly had the bubble been floated before it was punctured by Tin; Cmitkb, and the major portion of the wind escaped. Hud we not so acted, probably our shores would have been rushed by udveuturers stricken with the gold fever, and to-day hundreds of starving men would have been crying for vengeance. The alleged discovery having been put on its proper b;isis, papers all over the colonies making exceips of our comments, notes and telegrams, the speculation in shares was kept within a certain compass aud the general pnblic were not 'taken down...

MINES OFFICE MUDDLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 June 1894

MINES OFFICE MUDDLING. Working miners will have cause to congratulate, themselves that Mr. Uiqnhart has succeeded in getting a oommittee appointed to enquire into the granting' of the Mount Huxley reward claim to Messi-s. Propsttng and Jlobey. A-1 the facts that oarae to light last t'riday night during the course of the debate in the House proves that it is a very good test case to advertise the fault iness of tbe pre sont Mining Act, and it is greatly to be regretted that members did not view it in that light, and by avoiding personal recriminations have agreed to loyally assist mining reform. As a matter of justice, based upon tbe spirit of the forfeiture clauses it would appear that the present holders of the claim had no right to tbe extreme leniency and favour that has been bestowed upon them. Having secured the section as settlement for a debt contracted by the old Huxley Company, Messrs. Propsting and Robey appeared to have taken no further interest in the sections, not even ...

An Artful Husband. WIFE AT-' TACKED' AND THE MAID ATTACHED. THE STORY OF A SADDLE. _ Not one hundred miles from this fair city of Hobart there lives a young husband of fair prospects and multifarious tastes. He promised his wife a side-saddle. During the inteival that elapsed between the time the promise was made and tho date on which the saddle was secured, a cap tivating damsel, holding a Government position, appeared on the scene. 'How tnuoh pleasanter would it be to take this young lady for a ride than my own wife whom I see every day,' conjectured the Aspiring husband. ' How can such a scheme be managed,' he thought. A plan Suggested itself. When saddling up for his wife, who was not an expert in the saddle, he put a small tack underneath the saddle. When his wife mounted the tack took effect aud the horse bucled with effect. The wife vowed ehe would nuver mount a horse again. The saddle was permanently loaned to the aforesaid captivating lady, and the aspiring young husband ha...

Cycling' Notes. The City Cycling Club, Launceston, have taken up the gauntlet thrown down by the Hobart Club, and have decided to meet our men over a 25-mile course. The date has yet to bo fixed. It seems hardly advisable to have it before September, which would give both teams ample time to get fit. Our morning paper has at last found something quite new, and gushes in a sub leader of a cyclist mail in Westralia. It imagines this is the first mail service carried out by wheelmen. As far back as 1882 this system was carried out in Eng land. The parcels post also used the cum bersome ' trike ' for delivery of it* goods. In Melbourne at the present day telegrams are delivered by these speed merchant*, whilst hundreds of tradesmen deliver their goods by means of what the Mebcdry Galls 'beasts of burden.'
