Port Arthur Twenty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 19 August 1893

Port Arthur Twenty Years Ago. FBt RlEGKL.l I cannot do better than conclude with a true but unpublished ghost story, vrhioh I will entitle ' The Haunted Parsonage.' I say that this is to be a true ghost . story, and such is the case, as the incidents I am about to relate actually took place. Some short time before my first vi«it to Port Arthur the Rev. Mr. H ? and family had been on a visit to Melbourne. Returniner to Hobart Mr. H ? made all haste to Port Arthur, leaving the others to come down in the Government schooner some days after. The schooner for some reason went into Norfolk Bay instead of going direct to Port Arthur. On the evening of the same day the doctor — McCarthy by name I believe — seeing the lights shining from the various up-stair rooms in the parsonage concluded that Mrs. H ? and family had arrived from Hobart. He accordingly paid a visit to welcome them on their return, and rang the front bell for admission. Mr. H ? opened the door and the doctor made known the ...

Tins wrestler, who looked a splendid specimen of muscular Christianity, was loudly cheered. Pearce followed with Jim Baxter at his side. The local man seemed like a lilipution alongside his powerfully built adversxry, and did not appear to be in such perfect nick as his opponent. A referee having keen found in a well-known sporting gentleman, and a timekeeper appointed, therefereo announced that the rounds would occupy 15inin., with 2miu. interval; 4min. between each fall. Scroeteh assumed the attack at the start, and tried mostly for the half-nelson, and by this moans and the leg hold secured...

FREE SPEECH TEA AND SUGAR V. PRIMAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 19 August 1893

fREE SPEEC2H. TEA AND SUGAR V. PRIMAGE. The quietuB waa given to the tea and sugar duties on Tuesday evening, after the Treasurer had striven to lead a forlorn hope. The attempt was a very feeble one and resulted in the quondam supporters of the Ministry, the cross-benclies of the North, show ing their unmitigated disapproval of taxes on sucn aruuies ui geuurai con sumption. Mr. Bird strove to have the primage duties dealt with in a like summary manner, but unfortu nately the House thought it had accomplished sufficient for the time being, and thus the leader of the Opposition had to be content with the single victory, thus leaving the ob noxious projects of the Dobson Ministry to saddle the working classes with the greater burden of the neces sary taxation that must be imposed, by no mean6 killed, being scarcely scotched. The income tax proposals will, directly aud indirectly, be mostly borne by the people aud not the wealthy few, and the Upper House can be safely relied upon to pr...
