FREE SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 15 April 1893

f REE SPEE6H. Organise ! Organise ! Organise ! That should be the watchword of the Trades and Labor Council, for whilst things are bad and down in the gulf of despair — no bread, no clothing, no boots for the bitter winter for many of their fellow workers — they are at the present time doing absolutely nothing. The Council aim at being the leader of their olass, the redresser of their grievances, the protector in chief. Let them prove the right to this high claim by doing something tangible, something that can be re cognised by all the people as having a direct aim to help the unfortunate unemployed and they will do some thing that will bind the people to them more than any large sums .of money distributed as strike pay in times of industrial warfare. Let the Trades and Labor Council now show that they can do other work for the people than ugitate for ' more screw, better pay, and a bigger share in the profits of manufacture and com merce.' The capitalistic class can do this just as...

ATTEMPTED EVICTION At North Hobart. The Unemployed to the Rescue. Posse of Police on the Scene. Old Ireland Triumphant. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 15 April 1893

Attempted Eviction At North Hobart. The Unemployed to the Rescue. Posse of Police on the Scene. Old Ireland Trium phant. There was a scene of intense ex citement in Upper Argyle-street, at the angle of High-street, early on Monday morning last owing to a dis pute over some property, which might have culminated in a serious riot had not the good sense of one of the parties concerned prevailed. At the spot named there is a valuable piece of land, in one corner of which stands a cottage, where there reside a family named Walker, consisting of an old widow with a rich Irish brogue and her two sons. The Walker family claim the property, having resided there for many years, whilst the trustees in Green's estate allege that the plot of ground belongs to the estate, and that therefore the Walker family have no right to it. Holding this opinion the trustees have re peatedly tried to force their claim to the property, but have always been unsuccessful owing to the stout re sistance offered by...

The raised portion of the roadway would be far better included in the Square garden. As a thoroughfare it will be little used, and will remain the nuisance it is at present. * * ?

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 15 April 1893

FOOTBALL. The annual meeting of the City Football Club will be lield in the Mayor's courtroom, Town Hall, on Thursday evening next, nt 7.30 p.m. It is to bo hoped that the members of the committee of the S.T.F.A. will not forget the pressmen ere the reason begins. The present position of the reporters' box is most inconvenient, and the committee's attention was directed to it last year. Probably a remindex will be sufficient to have the stand removed S'i that a full view of the ground will be afforded. Efforts are a'ready being made to over come the difficulty of fie'd umpiridg, which his been such s source of trouble to the footbalr committee in the past. Mr. Thos. E. Sfarsden, tlie energetic hon. secretary of the association, is endeavoring to secure the Fervices of a Melbourne umpire, and it is hoped thot a man will be obtained who will give general satisfaction.

Universities Boat Race. This popular race was rowed on the Saltwater Elver (Vic.) championship course last Saturday. The race was well contested and the honors fell to Melbourne. Adelaide struck the water first. They and Svdnev rowing 41 and Melbourne 40. Sydney forged ahead leading Adelaide by a full half length and Melbourne by an other quarter length. A quarter of a mile told A different tale, for Melbourne settling down to a powerful 36 stroke quickly passed both her rivals. The Melbourne crew then maintained the lead throughout the race, though Sydney made some magni ficent spurts, winning by nearly three lengths, the Sydney crew being a similar distance ahead of South Australia. Over the last two miles of the race the Mel bourne crew rowed 34 to 85, the other crews averaging 37 ; the three measured miles being accomplie' ed by the winners in 16 minutes 5 seconds.

MITCHELL V. CORBETT [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 15 April 1893

Mitchell v. Corbett Charley Mitchell, the English boxing champion is in America, and unless the un expected happens, he vill meet James Cor bett, the world's champion, in the ring in a finiol, fin-Ill It is unfortunate (says the New York Police Gateite) that the over zealous im migration authorities should have inter fered with the match making upon the day of Mitchell's arrival. The ground upon which he was detained aboard the ship was absurd upon its face. The fact that he had been imprisoned in Fngland for a simple assault does uot make him a convict under the law. His crime, if a crime, was a misdejieanor and not a felony . As his counsel, William F. Howe, ably put it. 'If such is the ruling of the Federal authorities they can stop nine-tenths of all (he immigration to tliis country in the same way. Any man who may have punched another man in the nose and has bean finod, lie it five cents or five dol., by a magistrate, can be debarred from landing. A duke might have puuehed hie ...

SPORT TIT BITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 15 April 1893

Sport tit Bits. The race for the Sydney Cup was a most interesting one from the foot that all the big,giinB were engaged in the event. Mr. Sam Horderu's Reajni, owing to his victory in the Autumn Stakes, was installed favorite at first, but later had to gir« way to Cfunoola, who started at I to 7. The Admiral, .Oxide, Ducrow, Paris, Steadfast, and Little Beraie wore also much admired. The backers of the Queensland horse were not disappointed, as on rounding the turn for home he assumed the lead, and won easily by (hreeflengths from The Admiral, the- same distance -separating the latter horse .and the favorite Camoola, Paris close up fourth. It is noteworthy that The Admiral ran second to the winner in the 'Autumn Stakes. Eealni was originally owned by Captain Sandeman, a well-known Brisbane sporting man, who only parted with hint oa the condition that Mr. Sam Hordern would retain possession of the animal.

ConvidPort Arthur. [Br 'Ribqel.'] CHAPTER I. On a bright sunny morning loug years ago— so long, indeed, that many of our readers had not^opened their eyes to the light of day — a consider able number#of people might have been seen gathered upon a now for got i en pier once existing upon the Franklin Wharf. Although the hour was somewhat early — seven bells having only just rung from the ves sels in the harbor — everything be tokened an unusual state of excitement among the crowd assembled upon the pier. Alongside the wharf lay a large two-funneled steamer, very long and somewhat narrow in the beam. From out these funnels two dense columns of intensely black smoke rolled away over the quarter, casting their dark shadows upon the throng below, while the half-smo'thered, tear ing roar of escaping steam told of high pressure in the boilers, and of impatience to be off at the first ap pearance of the captain upon the bridge. Heavily-laden oarts hurried to and fro, and the busy blocks and...

Stansbury's Match. WHAT EX-CHAMPIOM PETER KEMP THINKS. It may not be uninteresting to followers of acquatics to know what the ex-champion sculler of the world (Peter Kemp) thinks of the match arranged between Jim Stanbury and Teenier. The cables mention that Stanbury is matched to row both Teenier and Gaudaur, but this is hardly likely. Up at the Portland Regatta on Saturday, Peter was inter viewed ana ms opinions are recoraca by the Referee as follows : — 'You have seen by the papers that Stanbury is matched to row Teemer ?' ' Yes.' ?'What do you think of Teemer as a sculler P ' 'Well, I think that when Jim meets Teemer he meets the best man in America ; that is my opinion.' 'What do you think of Stanbury 's chance of beating him ? ' ' I think if the climate suits Jim and he can get himself into his old form (which I have no doubt he will, as he is very temperate and steady) he will find no difficulty in defeating Teemer or any other oarsman the world can produce.'
