Political Notes; [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 5 August 1893

Political Notes: The sensation of last week in the Assembly waR the Treasurer's dole ful statement, that of this week the various criticismfi thereon. Mr, Bird led off on Tuesday in a studiously moderate tone, so moderate indeed that the countenances of the occu pants of the Treasury benches wore, as his speech progressed, an unmis takably relieved expression, expand ing even into a jubilant character as it became evident no vote of want of confidence was to be submitted by the leader of the Opposition. Mr. Bird's main points were denouncing the glaring inconsistency of a Govern ment in now proposing taxes which when in Opposition only a few months since they condemned, and installed themselves in office on such condem nation. He also soored when he showed that an income tax to be at all a fair one should be graduated and be continued upwards from £4-00, instead of ceasing in its opera tion at that amount, as proposed. The Premier in replying was lawyer- j like and special pleading,...

BAXTER V. WILLIAMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 5 August 1893

BAXTER V. WILLIAMS The announcement that Jim Baxter and W. Williams, trainer of the Essendon foot ball team, and a Victorian boxer of some repute, were to box last Saturday night at the Hobart Athletic Club rooms had the effect of drawing a considerable number to tnai gymnasiuiu. xutjro »*«- a o**g»*u u»i^»» at the start which occasioned some delay, caused by the senseless demand of Williams that the Essendon ' push ' should be allowed to view the proceedings ? on the nod.' Harry Pearce, the manager naturally took a decided stand in the matter and at one period it seemed as if the match would be abandoned. However, after some haggling the wants of the Essendon team who wished to patronise the show 'parted' and the match pro ceeded, Mr. Pearce explaining in a short speech that all difficulty had been got over as soon as the Essendonites were assured that members of the gymnasium were like wise paying. The contest was for a £10 purse the best of six rounds. ' Sprucher ' Evans acted as...

Yankees have an overweening conceit of the power of the almighty dollar, and so one of their number, who represents tne State of Ka: .s:i», proposes to introduce a bill to purchase Canada. Now, John ami might be only too glad to strike a bareain, as in the case of Heligo land, in fact that old hard - nstea gentleman with a very hungry eye, would possibly sell anything or everything, except India, especially as he is no numskull and knows that he will likely lose all his colonies as they grow up and become big and somewhat experienced. Uncle bam should remember, however, that --,anaaa will dispose of herself aid say hands off to coercion.

The Government propose to use the police to collect the proposed land and income taxes. Shrewd lawyers and able politicians, every one of them, with backbones stout as a whale's and heads as large as the same cetacean. As the mayor, the aldermen, the petty magistrates, and the warders, under police decentralisation, are the bosses of the men in blue, how can he demand a full and just return of income ? Perchance the new member for Cressy, now that he is overcoming his nervousness, will volunteer to become Tax-Gatherer-in-General, with out portfolio, and assist the Government to elucidate how not to collect the income from the poor fat man, and at the same time ease the akeady anxious heart of the bobby, that if he raises the wind for the, colony too roughly that the offended dignity of the plutocrat wont . reach out and get him the sack either immediately or when...

Dear Clipper,— During Madame An-' toiuette S crliug's short stay in' Hobart I had the pleasure of her company arid ob tained a great deal -of information from her fluent and instructive conversation. The death of her husband rendered Him-: pooBible for her to treat the iDusit-lovmg public of Hobart to an artistic rendering of the songs that have made her name famous, and it ie very probable that the chance of hearing her magnificent voice b very remote, as her American engagement calls her from Australasia and Other im portant fixtures follow before her return to England. Many rumours have been circulated since' her departure, which seem to me to be a reflection on Madame Ster ling's judgment musically. First we are told that she never sings the 'O' in ' O' rest in the Lord,' because it is not in the original. This looks very much like mere assertion. No artist would make such a statement. It is iu the original and was written by Mendelssohn to be sung. Why did he write the note of ...

It certainly was not very flattering to the Government to find both sides of the ; House pulling their policy to pieces, until it began to look like a very tattered garment. -.Nobody be lieves that the Government has either retrenched' en'ough 6v retrenched in the best way. It appeared as the debate proceeded' that very few were ?iii favor, of the tea and sugar duties, and that many -would prefer to put duties on other articles inetead. About the income tax very much difference of opinion was expressed, the land tax was approved and dis approved,, and a lax on unimprored land fealue a'eootninendftd. Probate duties on realty were declared to be right and good by some and radically bad by others. It will evidently be very hard for the House to come to anything like unan...
