RELIEF WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 30 June 1894

RELIEF WORKS. Ueau Clipped,— With your kind per mission I will explain the manner in which the money voted l-y Parliament for relief works ia Port Cygnet district is being ex pended. It is placed at the mercy of an individual who knows more about chalking a billiard cue or shuffling a pack of cards than supervising public works. Not long since he tried an experiment on Scan Ion's vond. He thought he would take the water to an elevated upot, and there placed a culvert for the disposal of same, but when the heavy rain came it showed the knight of the billiard cue where he should nave put thj culvert by sweeping away about two chains of the ncwly-fornicd raid. When h'Mliscovere 1 t'.ie misfortune, there he stood arrayed in his milk-white pants and brown hat, with thumbs in serted in his ve-t, ami wondered why the Might? Ruler should treat a man so raccntly reformed in such a manner. But, never mind 'good Government and Bobby will go nap oa it.' It would hi wcil for tlii- Government to ...

The Unemployed. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 30 June 1894

The Unemployed. Time runs on, and the poverty of the unemployed becomes more accentuated, for although the relief bodies are working hard in their various ways, they have not as yet even touched the fringe of the difficulty, and Government really appears to be trying its best not to do too much. Men have been knocked off stone-breaking, and the proposed works that were autho rised by Parliament have been con siderably reduced. Last year- the Dobson Administration threw the onus of relief upon the ladies' com- mittee : the result was tbe con temptible soup kitchen. Are the present Government going to follow the same example, and hand the un employed over to the Ministers' Committee ? It certainly tends that way, and if it is to be done hope will depart from many a stout heart, for none know better than the clergymen themselves that the charity of the community will be soon dried up, and that subscrip tions will rapidly fall off. What few works have been started are not giving satisfa...

STOPPING OF GREEN AND WELLS CONTEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 30 June 1894

STOPPING OP GREEN AND WELLS CONTEST. A correspondent writes : — The Pont ville folk were rudely awakened to the fact that the Wells-Grpen contest was stopped. Womenfolk were naturally (?) shocked at' that horrid thing boxingbeing tloerated. They say they prefer to flee the young men ignore such things, icon sequently the tabbies had all their armour on, and in full war paint (1 beg their pardon ; the paint was not indica tive of war, except to war againBt nasty boxing), and took their troubles to a man here who has long gained notoriety for minding his own business (?)

After a little hymn singing, christening, marrying, and praying, spread over two days bo had had enough of roughing it. He was not very well pleased either with bis reception or in the manner in which his own particular religious views were received. He evidently failed to comprehend that rapt right in the innermost hearts of these settlers was a deeper and sinoorer religion than tbrobed through his own dog matical brain. New Australia has taken to itself the lesson taught io humanity from the mount in Palestine by the Leader of men. Therefore, his prognostication that a 'a community that ignores or checks the religous sentiment is uot likely to have a very firm foundation or prolonged existence ' must be ...

FREE SPEECH. THE FIRST ATTACK ON THE BRADDON-FYSH MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 30 June 1894

FREE SPEECH. THE FIRST ATTACK ON THE BRADDON-FYSH MINISTRY. Last week there was every pros pect of all the taxing measures of the Government being passed through the Lower House by the end of the month, but when Parlia ment met on Tuesday it was generally understood that the Op position were to make a demonstra tion against the land taxation proposals of the Government, and the pseudo-leader of the Opposition led ofi the attack in good sonorous tones in an amendment affirming the principles of graduation. In reply, Ministers pointed out that their laud measures now before the House were only for this year, as provision would be made fora re assessment of the laud of the colony so that for 1895 a bill might be brought down during the next session to raieo the land tax on an unimproved land value basis. The Opposition tried to make great capital of the fact which was tacitly admitted by the Ministry that the present proposal was made to suit the 'other place,' quite regardless of thei...

THE JUNIORS. If you want a real good day's outing and at times witness some brilliant foot ball visit the upper cricket ground, the head quarters of tho Junior Association, and the nursing ground of many a good footballer. The arrangements on the ground are perfect, worked by a very energetic secretary, backed up by a valuable committee who take great pains for the comfort of the onlookers and players. I have seen some play on this ground whose authors would have done credit to any senior team on the island or indeed anywhere else. The favored match last Saturday was between the Fitzroy and Union Jack, which resulted in a win for the former after some good play by both teams. I have no d-»ubt that when the public become aware of the pleasant nature of these contests they will roll up in good numbers and make this ground a popular resort.

A Spring Seat. A BASHFUL MAN AND AN INSULTED LADY. A bashful young man, a refideut of one of the Channel ports, fur nishes an amusing sensation. The local minister was holding a service at a private honse at which the young fellow s best girl was a wor shipper. After considerable hesita tion he mustered courage to enter, being tired at the prospect of prowl ing round for an hour. Unfortu nately, the room was badly lighted, which fact, combined with his natural nervousness, did notimprovo matters. Fancying he saw a vacant seat near the door he sat down as quickly as possible to avoid the stare of certain juveniles. Bnt that was the rock he perished on, for despite bis caution he found the rebound very strong, being thrown headlong half way across the room, as the young lady upon whose lap he had un wittingly sat, rushed outside screaming. Having regained his feet the bashful young man followed closely after her, whilst the girl's sweetheart took up the running, making great efforts t...

New Norfolk Muni cipal affairs. This is one way they have of doing business in the Municipal Council of New Norfolk. It is a positive fact that not so long ago half an hour of valuable time was; occupied in discussing — what r The general welfare of the district? Certainly not. The question was whether a water-ratepayer should have his rates reduced from 7s. 6d. to 5s ! Tet this same Council has permitted the New Norfolk water works acconnt to accumulate until it amounts to over one thousand pounds sterling. Any time during the last ten years, when the Muni cipal Council found itself in want of funds, it was in the habit of borrowing from the waterworks, account. In itself, there is not much to condemn in that. But it appears that the Council never paid any interest on money so bor rowed. This has been going on for years, and how the waterrate payers of New Norfolk stand such games is just one of those things ft ' fellah ' can't understand, dont cherknow.
