No title [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 8 July 1893

Dear Clipper, — For two years and a half there has been a small and nearly useless set of people who have been preaching the same doctrine that prosperity could be brought about bv a creat reduction in the wages of the working men. Well, sir, surely their doctrines have had a fair trial, for wages have fallen a good deal since then, and yet instead of things getting better they are very much worse, and no immediate prospect of improvement in trade and commerce. I think it would be well if people who believe in cheap labor would practise what they preach. Take for instance Mr. Back' with his £1100 per year. Does anybody imagine that he earns that amount, especially when to consider how cheap labor is at present, aud I am certain if the law of supply and demand, of which he takes ad rant age as against his employees, was usod in con nection with his billet we could find plenty of men just as capable of managing our railways for half the money. At least it is the duty of the Government...

FLYING SHOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 8 July 1893

FLYING SHOTS. South won cleverly from the North. Splendid goal kicking for tho South — sine shots: seven goals, two behinds, and one hit the post. Len. Webb was the hero of the day. He played the game of the 40, and kicked three coals. Vimpany's kicking was much admired in the North. Pave Plant was expected down on Fri day all right again, but won't be able to play to-day. Jones played a fine game, and kicked a goal, but was too rough at times. Powell for the North did an enormous amount of work. McChristie, Langworthy, and Benny Langford worked like Trojans. Eyan made a good skipper and kicked a daisy of a goal. Ampy Edwards is the same good fellow, but not the same good player. Gibson was a good safe back for the South. J. Sibley rubbed out for a month. Casey and Guest fined a pound. Hobart boat Fitzroy. Port Davey was in his element in the rain and mud. Quick Meredith was very useful in the centre. Tho young Vautins are coming Nuggets.

PALMISTRY. HAND IV — VENUSIAN [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 8 July 1893

PALMISTRY: HAND IY.^^ENU^IAN;' ! N EEVOUS-SAMGDINE TYPE. — Loving, tender, gentle, good, kindly, sympa thetic. To the influence of the planet Venus the ancients attributed those good, sweet, kindly, amiable natures . which are the most sensitive to pain and suffering m persons or animals ; and to her they dedicated the long horizontal line which crosses the hand from the foot of the mound beneath the little finger, to the foot of the index finger, and they called it the heart line. In persons of a good gentle disposition this line1 is always fine and regular, ending often in branches which point toward the index. In ancient mythology Venus was not only the goddess of beauty and goodneBs, but also the mother of love. This tendency is found in that vast projection which forms, in the hand, the entire root and base of the thumb, called the mount of Venus. ANSWERS. Any one desirous of a description of character by means of this charming art 1mb only to enclose an outline of their band, ...

FREE SPEECH. THE POST AND TELEGRAPH AMALGAMATION FIZZLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 8 July 1893

f REE SPEECH. THE POST AN© TELEGRAPH AMALGAMATION FIZZLE. It was too, too cruel. We are sorry for Mr, Hunt. We are sorrier for the Postmaster-General. We are sorriest for Tasmania. The country was led to expect such wonderful tilings. ' Five thousand a year, at least, was to be saved by the much* vaunted marriage 'of the two depart ments. The Treasurer was to pat himself on the back in the coining budget speech, on account of the superlatively drastic retrenchment in th-8 direction. Mr. Hunt was the rnan-7-the only man in the colony— who was compatent to show how the flmrvelltttiB work was to be accom plished. It required almost daily bulletins , Jq inform the eagerly - &xpec{$fi^ multitudes how the busi ness wag proceeding. The report was always being prepared, but it never seerned to approach a finish. Its proportions became so prodigious that the office specially set apart for its preparation became too small, and another, larger and more stately, in the regiofr of the de...

It was reported that there are (still hundreds of unemployed men in and uround Hobart, and that very little more has been done by the Government during the last mnnt.h 1/1 nrovido omnlovment for them. About 30 men have been put tu stonebreak ing ; nothing has boon done to iind work for mechanics, and in view of this report much regret was expresso . that the pro vision made by the Government is so far from sufficient. It wob felt that Purlia inuut should be moved to make the neces sary provision, and a resolution was passed ?with the object of securing the necessary support for such a motion when brought before the Houso. It was also resolved to bring the proposal for the issue of State notes in payment for reproductive works before the Government, with the view of obtaining their favorable consideration of it, and securing the nocessary legislation for giving effect to it.
