IRISH FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 June 1893

IRISH FOOTBALL.. Football in Ireland (says Football': The Bugby Game) may be said to consist of three parts — Rugboin, Associationbt, and Gaelic. The rule of play in these organi sations has been defined pa follows :— In ' Rugby, you kick the ball; in Association, you kick the man if you cannot kickithe ball ; and in Gaelic, you kick the ball if you cannot kick the mail. This puts the present procedure and position of the rival devotees into a nutshell. The Associa-' tioniste are mainly confined to Belfast, where they form a body which it would be as difficult to convict of professionalism as it would be for them to prove that they are amateurs. The Gaels are a free and fes tive community, who have their head quarters at Clonturk Park, Drumcondra, County Dublin. The park is conveniently situated between Glasneviu graveyard and. the Hater Misepioordia Hospital. A man lias been known to pass from the football field direct to the hospital, and from the hospital to the cemetery, another...

FREE SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 June 1893

fREE SPEEeH. Australia is in distress. A piteous eight. Workers on every side no longer ply the busy tool j the wonder ful machinery contrived by the brain at man that proves him to be almost coequal with the gods, lies idle, and in oar fair cities are p&le-factd hunger and wretchedness. Ours is a confused world and a panic-stricken people. The various Governments ot the colonies are unable to devise ready moans to cope with these times of self -wrought calamity that are upon us. They would be only too glad to extend their usual lawpro Viflitag'and-*property-pr6-*ct!ng State duties into' the broader channels of being the food-providers and people's protectors ; but so untrained are the minds of our legislators to look after the real wants of the masses that they are either in. a state of dilemma or cruelly callous. The people feel that there is but one hope,* and one only, offering anything like substantial realisation, whereby bread can be secured so that their wives and li...

MUSINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 June 1893

MUSINGS. [Bt Jacques.] If we may trust the reports of Vic torian opinion, Sir Matthew Davies. or his party, have money put away in a stocking. He could not travel in such first-class manner, or get his lawyers, apologists, sycophants, and tentacles, to stick to him if it were not so. This goes to shew that Tas mania has been imitated again in the matter of squaring. How proud and pleased we all ought to be. * * * The Sanitary Inspector's Report, read at the Town Hall, and the dis cussion which followed on the Women's Sanitary Association, are clear contradictions to Dr. Giblin's l'ecent illnatured and illtimed remarks.

MUSIC AND THE STAGE [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 June 1893

Music and the Stage. [Br KErNO.] The week opened on June 12 with an organ recital and sacred concert at the Memorial Congregational Church which was a musical and we hope as far as the collection for Sunday school choir platfoz-in was con cerned also a financial and enjoyable success. The programme had to undergo a few alterations as Rev. Mr. foreseen absence of Mrs. J. Thomas, who was kept away by illness. Her place was taken by Miss K. White, Miss Enid Osborne also giving addi tional items to the songs for which she was down in the programme. Miss White's ' In the Cathedral' and Mis6 Osborne's ' Behold, I stand at the door,' especially the latter, brought out by her impressive con tralto passages, were (heir best items. Mr. H. J. Marsh played Handel's ' March in Scipio,' ' Larghetto,' aud the incidental organ accompaniments with artistic finish.' Mr. F.

CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 June 1893

Cycling Motes. [Bt Bike.] I notice that ''Cycle' credits me with passing weak jokes on the H.C.C. Tis truly wonderful to see how he tries to smooth matters over, not by defending the club in any way, but by venting his feelings on the lateviCA-captain, who also held the position of manager, much to the chagrin of the hon. sec., who did not like to be checkmated in his power. This is not the first of these ridiculous, and at the same time insulting articles that 'Cycle' has written, in fact, he seems to be specially adapted for this kind of work ; no doubt his efforts are appreciated by a certain few in the cycling world, who seem to have little else to do at present but 'peck ' at their neighbours, but the cyclists at large, however, seem to treat his remarks with the contempt they richly deserve. It would be more becoming of ' Cycle ' if he looked more after the interests of his club than to be running down every week those members who once kept it going. A. Turner, of Melbourne, h...

MUNICIPAL CLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 17 June 1893

Municipal Clacks. The City Fathers met as per usual on Monday afternoon last; all the members being in their places. As it was generally understood that some provision would be made for the unemployed, it had the effect of attracting a large number of that un fortunate class to the saored precincts of the Council Chamber. A few of the men gained admission, but a, stalwart bobby in plain ciotnes guardea tue door ana prevented too many of llie ' vulgar herd' from pressing in. Some indignation was expressed at this, and it would be rather interesting to know who authorised f uch an unjustifiable* pro ceeding. Alf. Crisp didn't look best pleased, but as he took no action it is to be presumed he acquiesced. The first business dealt with was the consideration of a letter from a party by the name of Flynn, Who had been for 33 years in the employ of the Corporation as boss scavenger, and who thought he was entitled to some compensation tor loss of office on account of the Corporation having...
