ON THE TROTTING TRACK. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
ON THE TROTTING TRACK. Now that the Driving Park Club's meet ing is so close at hand, and as sporting m men have little to occuipy their attentioa' for a week or two, perhaps the most en joyable pastime at hand is the meeting of the above club, which takes place next Saturday afternoon at the'Agricultural Associations, Ground, Moore Park. We visited the trottin' track early thiv. morning to witness anything that might be of interest; but owing to the fact that most of the trainers send their horses at various times dafing' the day, wish ing by that mneans to evade the scrutiny of onlookers, tery little was to be seen. As the clock struck: , Empress, Mr. 'Alcock's bay mare; who is. en gaged in a match on Saturday next, was leaving the track. After movingslbwly for two or three times round, shesbblted away for a mile, moving very nicely for' a: commoner; but should those who ought tb' know, be right, she has very little show of defeating her opponent-Nimrod. Of the real trotters, or t...
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. The Melbourne wharves presented an unusually deserted appearance during the greater part of Monday, says yesterday's Argus, owing to the continuance of the wharf labourers' strike. This was due in a great measure to the quiet attitude of the men, and to the action of the police in dispersing any crowd that collected near any particular vessel. Work was pro ceeded with at the steamer Taramung, but during the afternoon it was announcedthat the crew of the vessel, is well asthose of the Nemesis, the Corangamite, the Gabo, the Fiado, and the Buninyong were all to be paid off, with the view of laying those vessels up. Great interest was evinced in the arrival of the Adelaide from South Australia, as it was believed that she hada number of labourers on board under en gagement to the Melbourne coal mer 'chants. Quite 500 wharf labodrers collected on the south side of the river as the vessel drew near, prepared ap. parently to give the new comers an un-' friendl...

FAIRLY SOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
FAIRLY SOLD. It is not often that I find myself within the precincts of a police court; but a short time ago, happening to be seized with a sudden and unaccountable curiosity, I wended myway towards one of these inter esting buildings, and effected an entrance, I say effected, because it was a matter of mo- little difficulty, the outer chamber being crammed to inconvenience with 40 -or 50 individuals, mostly women, two thirds of whom seemed in the last sta"es of deepondency, while the remainaor, afforded a striking contrast by exhibiting a sort of unhealthy cheerfulness. The police inspector on duty that day was an old acquaintance of mine, and upon notic ing me he immediately beckoned me into his oflict. "There's a peculiar case just decided," eho said; "one you might like to know something about. The fellow is discharged and will be coming out in a msinute.' Why,' there he goes?" ejaculated the inspector, " that man in the moleskins." The "man in the moleskins" had only just got i...
