FREE SPEECH. THE UNEMPLOYED AND A DICTATORIAL SPEAKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 July 1894

FREE SPEE6H. THE UNEMPLOYED AND A DICTATORIAL SPEAKER. Ab anticipated the Speaker of the House was antagonistic to Mr. Urquhart'e motion that Mr. Turn bull be heard at the bar of the House in (he interests of the unem ployed. The Clipper says ' anta gonistic ' advisedly, always having been under the impression that the Speaker of the House should give vent to no expression of opinion, his duty consisting iu laying down as tersely as possible a ruling based upon parliamentary practice and constitutional law. This Mr. Bird complied with when he stated that he ' was not aware of any rule or of any parliamentary practice which would render it necesnary or proper for me to decide that this motion is out of order.' When he proceeded to discuss the advisability of 'com- plying with the prayer of the petition he undoubtedly exceeded his rights and entirely forgot tbe dignity of his office. How different this action when placed in juxta position with his tender hearted procedure when hostili...

Who Can Tell? [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 July 1894

Who Can Tell ? The bash politician who told the Sorell Bench that he was going to appeal to a court of justice, and then sent a letter of apology. The fat policeman that lives on a river bank who went into a store and asked for some of Allan's Anti Fat and a pair of 65 corsets to re duce his corpulency. How , it is that a pigsty and slaughter bouse at Geeveston are allowed -o remain in such a filthy state. Where is the health officer ? Why the Arcade barber has so much gas P Is it because he always has a bob's worth on hand. Why the Brighton postmistress's dog hes been howling. Ib it be cause it was turned out of Ilia bed with no blankets to keep it warm. Don't let it ' dye,' Tom. The champion chinner of his own abilities as an engrosser.

CANDID, BUT CRUEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 July 1894

Candid, but Mel Travelling by express,'' a', wool Jang was rather taken with the agreeable .conversation of 'a gentje inan' from the continental side of the strait, one who, like bitnaelf, ' had the bulk of his business soul foonssed on fine wool, on its pins or in the bale. Neither of the chance companions rejoiced in being what you might call good looking', in fact both or either could have been used to visit uurifljr schools with advantage.

REALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 July 1894

Realism. BY POLITICIANS. ' There's money in chickens ' is the sportful reminder duly jogged into the noddles of readers by writers of agricultural articles in weekly Wails and such papers. It all depends, is the opinion of The Clippek, whether it is your own chickens vou raise, or those of your neighbors. If the former, the speculation is likely to end in loss ; but if the latter, provided that the work is done with ordinary business acumen it returns past 100 per cent, profit. 'Chickens come home to rooBt.' That is better gospel, and further where they roost they deposit a kind of offal that is objectionable to mention by name unless one has the gumption to call it nitrate, and then as nine ont of every ten don't know what the word means it is polite lingo. Recently in the city of the North, that won't rest content until it is tbe capital of Tassy, a man in terested, in the poultry show line waited upon Windy Billium, Esq., M.H.A. and requested a small donation.

MINING NOTES AND TIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 July 1894

Mining Notes and Tips. . [£r Gnome.] It is a matter of great import ance that every shareholder should Siy his last call in the Queen ompany before the date of the adjourned' meeting, and that ' ' all who cannot attend, and who have not yet done so, should send in proxies to make up the quorum re quired to constitute a meeting. It has now become a pretty settled conviction with a large majority of the shareholders in this company that new men Should re place the retiring directors. I am glad to hear that Mr. Taylor has declared his intention to keep free from all ticket arrangements that may foe suggested, and that he will run independently, relying u|)on the shareholders to give htm credit for good intentions in all that he has said or done in reference to the company during the past eleven months. It is to be hoped that shareholders will send in two good men to support him, and that the mistakes of the past may be re deemed as speedily as possible under a new regime. In accordance...

SHOOTS OF ORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 July 1894

Shoots of Ore. Charley McGough, W. Young, and W. Haly, were at Strahan last week waiting for the Yolla to take them to Low Rooky, where they are going in scent of mineral. Hope there's luck awaiting them. There is a certain mine on Zeehan where an enginedriver has been practising for a whole week before he conld take charge of the engine. Is it fnir tbat such men get the preference to praclical men that could take their 6hift right away with one hour's practice. A large number of men are out of employment, and cannot obtain any hear; so miners and others seeking work should give Zeehan and Dnndas a wide berth just now. Dr. Kennedy informs me that there are no fever patients in the hospital at present. An old friend of Zeehan, Sar geant Farrell, arrived to-night, and is welcomed by many of his former acquaintances. At Zeehan it is said that tribute is a fraud on some of the mines, and that managers share in the spoils. At a meeting organised by James's sympathisers at Zeehan early in...

The facts are briefly these : — Mr. A. J.

On the Wallaby. OHAPTEE II. (continued.) , At first I carried the bread, be the cheese, in oar swags under our blankets cloBe to the sweating skin. What a state our 'tucker' was in at sundown! I could eat my bread bnt not his cheese. He swallowed his cheese with a relish, but could not stomach my bread. So, wiser grown, we bought and ate in future on the spot, and very hungry we sometimes were before we readied a blissful spot where we could buy, borrow, or, with the rights of an Australian swagger of early days, mBiston 'tucKer. From some rising ground we looked back on Melbourne. There lay the pleasant city, there was the forest of masts beyond, and Hob son's Bay stretching far away into the distance. As Lot's wife might have looked buck on the cities of the plaiu, with a hankering after their pleasures — sinful but delight ful — so we looked back, and then strode manfully forward under the scorching sun.
