Our Boys Abroad. AN ASPIRANT FOR GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 1 September 1894

Our Boys Abroao. AN ASPIBANT FOB GAOL. The following extract from a bona fide letter gives 6ome idea how much the schoolmaster is abroad in Tasmania, and how our boys aspire after learning and fame when they go abroad. It is a true index to the ambition engendered by hang ing round street corners and spitting on the pavements : — We went down to UJimes gamblen den on Batudy and britten won about three pound and i won about 12 bob and we ust got out when the traps rushed in but we was out before they went in the place was packed with all sorts, dont let ou that i have told you about it and dont tel eny of the girls.

It seems a p*fLt pity that m better feeling does not exist between cyclists in Hobart, and as long as certain riders try to rule the roost there cau be no har mony amongst them. They should take a leaf out of the City Cycling Club, Launceston. Charley Barlow has just returned from the Coast, full of fun as of yore.

Last Saturday's match about decides football for. 1 894, when City entered tbe field against Railway, the latter winning by 2 goals to nil. The game throughout could hanlly be said to be a good exposition of football, for at times it closely resembled London prjKe ring rules. The umpire was, to my mind, far too lenient with the nlavcrs. allowing them at times to run completely amuck. About 2000 spectators present. First goal for Railway kicked by Rabbit. Second by Tonie Abel just misssed being touched, being low. Mackey let them know he was out for gore. That fine wing player, Jimmy Jackson, had his work cut out with Minty. How did that nipper get when Chappie brought tbe cosh. Wales screwed Nicholson's neck a long way out of its proper angle and was replied to in the usual improved fashion.

BIMETALLISM [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 1 September 1894

H; Gibbs, a gpvernbr oE. Bank of England, defines Bi metallism thus : — 1. That the friinte, of the leading nations of the world' should be Open to the coinage of all gold and silver brought Jo them. 2. The gold and silver to be coined into legal tender money, tbe quan tity of pure' silver in tb$i slfveri coins to bear such proportion to the quantity of pure gold in the gold coins as may be agreed upon by tbe high contracting parties. 3. The debtor to have the right to pay 'his ? debt in coins of either metal at bis pleasure. Now as shown in previous articles this question of silver and gold ratio was a very simple business nntil 20 years ago, when gold was made by law the only legal tender, and silver reduced to a common com modity. This so much enhanced the value of gold that the fixing o...
