A BIG FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

A big Feat. The number of long-distance rides, of whioh the Emperor hot been doing so muoh lately to en courage the practice in' the German cavlary, was inoreaeeJ by a new and very interesting feat performed by a lieutenant (Von Veltheim) ©f the Zieten Hussars (' Duke of Con naught's Own '), at Eathenbw, in the Old Mark. The lieutenant wagered that after a day's hard drill exercise with his full-blooded Hungarian Wallacb, he would next day ride 60 kilometres in five hours and a half, and still be so fresh, man and horse, as to make it impossible for a patrol of three troopers, with perfectly fresh regi mental remounts, to overtake and capture him — provided only he had a start of 300 yards. And the gallant lieutenant, who rode first from Rathenow to Brandenburg, won his bet in the moBt brilliant manner. After galloping a dis tance of about 6000 metres, during which time the fresh troopers could not manage to gain au inch on him, he plunged into a wood and soon became entirely lost t...

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

Cycling Motes. The road xaoe billed for last Saturday wbb postponed through the rain; it would have been as well for the dub to have delayed the raoe fully another month, when more entries would have been obtained. As it now stands it will take place this afternoon. The winner should turn up in Watt Hallam, with BennUon close up. Surely the handi oapper overshot bis mark by giving Douglas 7m. start. At the general meeting of the T.C.C., July 6, Mr. T. Hallam tendered his resignation to the club. The matter was held over for the committee to deal with on Tuesday, at whioh meeting it was ac cepted with regret. At the same meeting a member, for indecently disfiguring a picture in the club-room, was promptly 'kicked out' of the club. He had been called upon to apologise, but taking no notice of same was dealt with by the members. It is very apparent that unless we in the South shift ourselves a bit we shall have to play second fiddle to Launceston. They have started to put the track in ...

BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

Boxing. Jim Baxter celebrated the opening of his new Athletic Club in Liverpool-street last Friday night, a contest waa arranged between those old favorite Snowy nnd Dunahoo which pleased everyone present . The manager has everything arranged a good Athletic Club, being fitted up with all the latest improvements, shower bathe, lockcis for the members, and plenty of good apparatus. Th? room of its kind, which is the largest iu Hobart, well repays a visit, and one can see the amount of trainiug gone through every evening by the City footballers. Some great contests may be looked forward to, to come off within the walls of this club. On Monday week Miller will meet Welsh in a ten r-iund go for a £5 side wager, and the whole of the house. This contest should prove a good mill, the last time they met ihonors iwere about even. Miller's last contest is fresh in the minds of our readers. Welsh's last was at the Derwent Athletic Club when he was defeated by Cully Griffen. Albury Clifford has...

FOOTBALL FLASHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

Football Flashes. For the second time this eeaooQ tfye City and Railway met, the Railway again prov ing victorious, and in my opinion they deserved the win, for their all round, play was decidedly better than the City's, whose men seemed all astray. My opinion that the Railway would carry off pre miership honors, will pan out about correct. After faBt Saturday's match I don't see another club in it. To-day's match will be between Railway and Kingston.and the former will about win. City have- protested against Railway playing Tonic Abel without having ob tained a permit from the Association.

STAGE AND PLATFORM MR. WALTER BENTLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

StageandPlatform MR. WALTER BENTLEY. The return visit of Mr. Walter Bent ley to Hobart was acknowledged by theatregoers on Monday evening last by the full house that greeted the opening performance of ' Friends or Foes ' ('Nos Intimes ') The piece is one of the most successful of modern comedies, and from the rise of the curtain to the fall there is not a dull moment in it. The subject is one for all time, and treats of the various motives on which friendships are based, and the complications into which the characters get are most startling and entertaining. The chief character in the play is Dr. Simpson (Mr. Walter Bentley), and the part iB played in such a natural manner that it quite carries the spectator away. The same piece was staged on Tuesday evening, being fol lowed on Wednesday by ' A Wife.s Peril,' or ' Still Waters Hun Deep.' As John Mildmay in this piece Mr. lientley secured a unanimous verdict of approval. On Thursday evening ' The Silence of Dean Maitland ' was put on...

FREE SPEECH. MOUNT HUXLEY REWARD MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

FREE SPEE6H. MOUNT HUXLEY REWARD MUDDLE. The evidence taken by the Select Committee appointed to enquire into Mr. H. E. Smith's application for forfeiture of the Mount Huxley reward claim is by no means pleasant reading, seeing that on every page of it there is manifest legalised abuses and their evil fruits The Secretary of Mines, Mr. F. Belstead, was very much to the point in the whole of his evi dence, ercept when evading tbe in crimination of the Ministerial head of his department, and he was also in the fortunate position of being able to state that when the applica tion first came before him he did not know who H. E. Smith was, thus at once lifting off his shoul ders any accusations that he bad been unduly influenced in favor of his fellow Civil servant. According to his evidence Messrs. Propsting and Robey had not spent a shilling on the mine, having slept on their claim for two years, nor yet had they done anything to satisfy him that they were entitled to con sideration, an...

THE REV. TURNBULL AND HIS POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

THE BEV. TURNBULL AND HIS POSITION. Tbe rev. leader of this agitation is re ceiving a considerable amount of abuse and even being met with suspicion iu various quarters, and that phase of the agitation permeated the House, in fact completely over shadowed the real question before hon. members. Certainly it is singular in its aspect for no man could figure in a labor agitation with lest, axes to grind than a clergyman ot the Church of England, The day is still distant when that Church, whose tradi tions are that of the obsequious servant of princes, will consider it a merit worthy of reward that one of its clergy has espoused the cause of the people, and certainly there is no such sign in the bishop that openly states that he knows little about the people and clioscs rjtber to fill the role i f the commercial chuich drummer. All that know Mr. Mulcahy will sincerely regret that such a tried friend and hard worker has been led away, be it through party influence or personal judg ment, ...

THE UNEMPLOYED IN HOBART. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

The Unemployed in Hobart. The unemployed question has again forced itself before the people and Par liament, and on this occasion with no unmeaning voice. Last Monday night a crowded meeting was held in Dillon's Arcade, with the Rev. Mr. Turnbull in the chair, and trenchant condemnatory resolutions were carried, reflecting very strongly on the sincerity of the Govern ment and the Municipal Council, and the usefulness of the Central Belief Com mittee, which was stigmatised but as a buffer between the Government and the people. The feeling displayed appeared to indicate that the unemployed had no confidence in the sincerity of those bodies,) any more than they had in the soup kitchen and the D»bson Government last year. The notable exception to all this want of confidence is the late concert committee, which appears to have impressed itself indelibly upon all as a sincere attempt to do with all its might whatever lay within its power to meet the existing distress. It existed, not to '...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

AMERICA. In the United States, the citadel of railway kings, millionaires, Tam many rings, and bloodless combines and trusts, Labor has lifted aloft her banner, blown the dreadful clarion note of war, and defied the recognised head of the Govern ment. It were well done if the object lesson is taken to heart by the parliaments of the nations. From Chicago to California is a fa)1 cry, and proven that the whole country is in arms against the existing state of things. Even that most notorious servant of monopoly aud conservatism, the cabligrammer, has admitted that nine-tenths of the people in Cali fornia are with the strikers, whilst tbe magistrates of Chicago will not give orders to the Federal troops to ' shoot lovr and lay the rebels out.' How weak are the casligatijry articles of misrepresen tation from the Conservative news paper twaddlers against such living facts. Whilst yet the sarcastic sneer and laugh is on the curled lip at the failure of the Coxeyite tramps fie imprisonment...

THE LABOR WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

The Labor War. As ths century draws to a olose evidences accumulate that our boasted civilisation rests upon very insecure foundations, and that the very fabrics of our social life are rotten to the core. Justice is tram tiled into the dust, and we are given over to forms, fashion and ceremonial. It matters not how Necessity is crying out in the streets, reform measures must be put into the political mill, and then amidst the whirr and hum of party strife they are chopped to pieces, or turned into monstrosities quite un workable with ossified joints and verbose redundancy. The outcome of this state of things is that the vast majority of the people are com pletely cut off from anything approaching a fair and equal share in the triumphs of genius which have brought to the few untold wealth and luxurious comfort, those triumphs which are binding even the primeval forces of nature down to obey the will of man, whilst a by no means insignificant minority are doomed to be cast off from th...

THE SHEARERS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

TBE SHEARERS' STRIKE. In Queensland and New South Wales another disastrous strike is threatened) the Pastoralists' Union being the aggressors. In 1891, as the result of a conference, an agree ment was arrived at, to the then apparent satisfaction of all parties. Tempted probably by the glut in the labor market, the PastoraUets' Union have cast aside the 1891 agreement, although it contained a clause that no such* action should be taken by either party without a conference. The shearers have re quested such conference, and been met with the refusal. The pas toral ists had made up their minds, and conferences were useless. In New South Wales the t-liearers wanted their employers to submit the question to the Arbitration Boatd, but could not induce them to do so. In South Australia, thanks to the virile Labor party, repre sented in both Houses, no difficulty is likely to arise, aud the various boards are being filled under the old agreement, which is (he case like wise on many of the s...

THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR. This powerful organisation has played no small part in the many labor strikes of the States, for it stands without an equal as a labor organisation for strength and solidarity, and it is fortunate for American workers that it is so, seeing that whilst tbe products of the workers have been protected up to the hilt, no real protection has been vouchsafed to the American workers. Thus the policy of the country has directly augmented both the power and wealth of the employer, and placed the workman in his bauds as a mere puppet. To give to some extent that very necessary protection, the Knights of Labor sprang into existence. Its beginning was very humble, and like most brilliant successes arose out of a failure. The Garment Cutters' Society of Philadelphia had been compelled to disband in October, 1869, and one member named Uriah Stevens requested those desirous of reforming on a new basis to remaiu in the room. Six men did so, all of them clothing cutters. A coup...

MINING NOTES AND TIPS. SILVER QUEEN MEETING. DIRECTORS CALLED UPON TO RESIGN. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 14 July 1894

Mining Notes and Tips. [By Gnome.] SILVER QUEEN MKBTING. DIRNCTOHS CALLED UPON TO RESIGN. The meeting of the Silver Queen Company held at the Coffee Palace on Monday marked a new era in the history of raining companies in Tas mania, for it was clearly shown that long-suffering shareholders are no longer content to permit directors to do just as they Iikea6 ft board of management with their properties and mines. The directors of the Queen were called upon to resign, and have refused to do so, with one exception — Mr. Conway — who im mediately on receiving results of the meeting forwarded his resig nation to the boards an any umn having natural self-respect would do. When the show of hands was called for the resolution was carried by a majority of two to one in spite of the appeals of the chairman (Mr. Susinan) and Mr. Dobbie to the meeting not. to do anything of the kind. A large number refrained from voting; anticipating a bnllot, but the directors did not call f.jr this, and they a...
