CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 June 1893

Cycling Notes. [Bt Bike.] An amusing incident occurred in a cer tain club the other day. It appears the hon. sec. put up a notice for a meeting to take place on the Monday. When the time came a friend happened to drop in and asked him to go somewhere with him. Our friend, the ' editor ' (thoughtful man) just pulled the notice down and wrote out a fresh one — 'Meeting postponed,' making those members who came specially for the meeting look very foolish. J. H. Pither, of the Pioneer C.C.has just lowered the 100 milo record of New Zealand; time, 6 hr. 38 min. 46 sec. ; old time, 7 hr. 15 min. Taamanian time is 1 hr. 32 min., but ' Tom ' Hallam is only waiting for that new ' Premier.' Don Jewell made tho fastest time in the Ballarat C.C. road race, viz., 28 miles in 1 hr. 48 min. L. H.

FREE SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 10 June 1893

fREf SPEE6H. There is at tbe present time no question closer to practical legislation than that of founding State Banks. The present: system of banking das Dollapsed, not through any inroads made upon it by reformer* who per ceived that the present system of banking was a bad and nnjust one, i-\Li through its own chicaning rotten ness. Of course we are told by those very much interested in the present system that all tbe closed banks are to arise phoenix like oat of their ashes stronger than ever. The better for the colonies if time should prove the optimistic augurists correct. Unfortunately reconstruction has not always been successful, notably so in tbe City of Glasgow Bank, which failing in 1857 soon recommenced business and was apparently highly prosperous, yet in 1878 found itself in. a worse position than ever, having to again close its doors. The Oriental Bank waB another case of this kind. In fact extreme care and honesty will be the great requirements at the helm of tbe re...

MUSINGS. [By Jacques.] The framers of the original Marine Board Act of 1857 were wise and able statesmen, who seeing that the colony was' natural^ well endowed with water privileges thought thereby to develop the settlement and prosperity of the colony. * tk dfc The Act placed the southern half of Tasmania under the jurisdiction of the Hobart Town Marine Board for the control and regulation of harbors, wharves, lighthouses and 3ther matters relating to shipping. Put briefly, the Board was at it* pleasure, and so far as funds allowed bo provide accommodation for the 3hipping frequenting any port. Port was denned to include any port, harbor, haven, navigable creek, or river. Under the term accommoda tion there were included the erection and maintenance of wharves, qnays, piers, dock*, buildings, and works as might be required. The provision of proper roadways as access.
