MARKET JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

MARKET JOTTINGS. Wheat. — During past week business in the grain market lias been unusually quiet. There being no wheat except that already in the hands of millers, no business is nossible. excer»t what is done in the imported article. South Australia and Victoria still have a large surplus at their disposal, although they ship large quantities to New South Wales, Queens land and South Africa. A large quantity is still available for the United King, dom, where the price has again receded, consequently affecting the colonial markets, so that Adelaide wheat is now quoted from 2e. ljd. to 2s. 3d. f.o.b.,with a downward tendency. The Wild Wave, which arrived in Port Pirie, S.A., on Monday last, will load a full cargo for hero, and is expected about end of pre sent month. New Zealand has a. shortage this year, and expects to be importing before the year is out, probably from Victoria.

Record-breaking in England takes a ' much more prominent position than it does in Tasmania, and the latest uensa tion in that line is a marvellous perform ance by G. P.

THE TOTE TAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

THE TOTE TAX. AH the racing clubfl in the island have bBen making a jnighty clutch at the political wire^pe during the week to secure their immunity from this particularly ♦?jfishy' mode of raising revenue.

FREE SPEECH. THE POLITICS OF THE WEEK. BANKRUPT TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

FREE SPEE6H. THE POLITICS OP THE WEEK. BANKRUPT TASMANIA. Disappointment continues to be the handmaiden of the Ministry and once again their attempt to balance the State ledger has ended in failure. The tax on toteB has been reduced to 1\ per cent., and will probably receive its quietus in tbe Council, the Stamp Duty on receipts has been reduced to a universal penny tax on all amounts of £2 and over, and it remains to be seen what will be further done in regards to stamps on entertainment tickets and the tax on bulls and stallions. 'Norn that they must go into recess from sheer inanity, possibly they will give vent to their feelings by sacking a few more civil servants, or again swelling the pension list in further ance of their precious bamboozle trick yclept Retrenchment. Cer tainly up to date the firaddon-Fysh team have not shown that they were justified in turning tbe Dobson Ministry out of office, for at least it must be conceded to that party that they were itching for a fight...

SPORT. EVENTS TO COME. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

SPORT. r/Br the Owl.] EVENTS TO COME. To-day— Victoria Amateur Turf Club, at Caulfield. In point of quality the fields that are likely to take part in the Caulfield Grand National double to-day are hardly up to the standard of those that took part at Flemington in similar events last month. The scratching of Ixion for the Hurdles, and Busaco for the Steeple, comes as a surprise to those who follow form, as they both ran well enough at Flemington to warrant support for the events under notice, and knowing what a brilliant horse Busaco is over a distance of ground, the public rushed him in doubles as soon an |they saw the weights, and of course bit their fingers, as the injuries the horse received when taking part in the V.R.C. Grand National will cause his absence from the racecourse for some time to come. At the time of writing Blyth is loft in the Steeplechase, but his condition will hardly admit of his taking part in the big event to-day. In the absence of Tim Swiveller, Apsloy oc...

FOOTBALL FLASHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

FOOTBALL FLASHES. The match Letwo n the Kingston and Railway last Saturday was a very tamo affair. Owing to the very poor display made by the Kingston, tho Railway com pletely rau all round them at every point of yie gauic, the only redeeming feature being the magnificent display at football bv the Kimrston Captain, which was the best -Been.- on Hie ground this season. At one time he brought the ball from the wiiig tp tUe centre heating his men all the way, and .wound up by fairly taking the ball out o£ a nest of Locos unaided by any of his men, and securing his kick. ' Such a fine display has rarely been seen, and stamps him as one of the best footballers of the day. Next Saturday the North and South ' play a return match at Launeeston, laBt time' they met it was a very close thing, and the 'South will have to put their best leg forward to avert a defeat, Result of last Saturday's match:— Railway 18 goals, Kingston 2 goals, Fixture for to-day :— City v.

SHOOTS OF ORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

Shoots of ore. The Queen is insured in every life office in tho United Kingdom. Two of the reconstructed banks are Baid to be negotiating an amalgamation —the English and Scottish and London. The Queensland National Bank shares, jM paid up, are offering at the Sydney Exchange at Is. per share. The shearers' strike is another little straw that has to be financed by hook or by crook. Mr. Bailes, M.H.A. for Bendigo, says, referring to tribute, that as at present conducted there are no worse instances of sweating in the whole colony. A boom in nuggets. A nugget weigh ing 160oz. gold, valued at £650, has been discovered by a poor prospector named W. Gunn at the old Berlin (Vic.) diggings, in new ground. At Beaufort, another weighing nearly 19oz. has been turned up in fossicking, and Coolgardio keeps up its reputation with a number of nuggets of various weights up te 68oz. The Queensland banks' reports show diminishing profits. In 1892 the National Bank showed gross profits, £100,371 ; ne...

The teams will consist of 20 players repre senting the clubs of the Junior Associa tion, 20 players from the combined country clubs of Southern Tasmania.

MOSTLY UP NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

Mostly up North. TBr Caiu.os.1 I believe it is pretty well under stood that the old folk from tbe Invalid Depot in Launceston are to be removed to Hobart. This is the latest junk of wisdom the Execu tive have hatched. The idea is as inhuman and cruel as was ever evolved from the brain garret of any body of men. Tbe old folk have many sterling friends here ; numbers of them have wives and relatives, who are constant visitors to the old men's home, and minister as best they can to make their last declining years pass as smoothly as possible. To take them away from their friends to strangers in the South is as bad as transportation — it is heartless and unmerciful. It cannot be recommended on the score of economy, and if its bad manage ment is tbe excuse that can be remedied very soon. No! it seems that everything in Launceuton is to be sacrificed for the sake of Hobart, and we stand by and see it done. We are always late ; when the lnst trump shall sound we'll reply with a snore in B ...

SILVER AND GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

Silver and Cold. TBy Faibpijly.I How is it that silver kept its value alongside of gold for many thousands of years and then within the . last twenty years went down to less than half its original value ? Overproduction we are told at once by the gold people ; but they take very good care not to supply us with figures. Here are some facts about it. In 1852 there was rather more value in silver in circulation than gold so that the output from the mines should be a little in excess of gold to keep ap this equillibrium. Instead of which during the succeeding forty years for every six millions worth of silver produced there have been nine millions worth of gold. Hence in comparison with gold there is no excess of silver but very much the opposite and the fall in price is not due to over-production at all. The gold ring first by laws, then by arrangements with unwilling nations have forced down silver to its present price and now they jeer us that it is ridiculous to think of ever using ...

RETRENCH AND REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

RETRENCH AND REFORM. Ross municipality docs not believe in police expenditure, and for a wild jamberoo the gory drunk cannot do better than pay it a visit. It used to emnlov two snecial con. stables to look round the police office and see if anything lively had turned np. This year they have gone one better than even Braddou's fondest dreams, and reduced to a Buperintendant and sub. Results have been highly satisfactory aud the morality of the district, accord ing to statistics, show a decided improvemeut. For 1892, inde pendent of offences against Police Act and bye-laws there were seven cases of indictable offences reported, six apprehended, and five summarily convicted, aud twelve drunks were added to the score. For 18fW, there were six eases reported, and uono apprehended, aud only three added to the tangle record. A most decided improvement and proof positivo that it is more efficacious to sack the police than to introduce prohibition.

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 11 August 1894

OBITUARY. An old and much respected Im- perial Servant, Mr. Andrew Thos. Stuart, breathed his last on Monday morning, after a few days illness. Mr. Stuart, with his wife, came out to the colonies in June, 1840, in the merchant ship London, commanded by Captain Gibson, and landing at Williamstown commenced, in conjunction with the Messrs. Ogleby, who were fellow passengers, sheep farming at Mount Macedon, there meeting with reverses owing to bad water, he came to Tasmania and received an appointment in connection with the penal settle- ment at Jerusalem, under Sir John Franklin. During the course of his service he held the position of superintendent of the Buckland, Rocky Hills, Cascades, Oyster Cove, Impression Bay, and Port Arthur settlements. When these stations were done away with, he retired on a pension from the Home Government, which he enjoyed up to the time of his decease.
