HOIDEN HUBBUB. Each and every mortal hour it lasts, in this manner; the infinite hubbub unslackened. HOBART COMMERCIAL ASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 30 September 1893

Hoiden Hubbub. Each and every mortal hour it l&eU, in thii manner ; the infinite hubbub uuslackened. HOBART COMMERCIAL ASS. The Calico Jemmies and counter jumpers have a trade union called the Hobart Commercial Association, and as such they have their grievances, their main one at the present time' being the unsatisfactory tariff pro posals of the Government. They are all patriots, and do not care, appa iwnfclv. wlmt, Custnms imDOstR are nut on, so long as it can be passed on to the consumer ; but if it is so small that they cannot do it, for fear one of their number should advertise, ' Awful sacrifice, duty remitted,' and keep to the old prices, the retailers raise a howl — class legislalticra. Is it not class legislation when it can he passed on to the consumer, who in the big majority is the ' poor working man P' Calico Jemmy has a wonderful brain, when armed with his yardstick, and no doubt can tell to the quarter of an inch where the class legislation comes in, though n...

MARINE BOARD'S COMEDY OF QUIBBLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 30 September 1893

MARINE BOARD'S COMEDY OP QUIBBLES. Hie 'lreasurer has been following up his agitation against 'the Marine Board wardens, and they have puffed themselves up with indignation. Their hands are clean and the system of opening tenders 'the fairest in the world.' But how they give themselves away ! Warden Watchorn says that by accepting the tenders a saving of £478 had been made, enumerating that on Gatward't ('CheRterma.nl tender fully £14 was saved, on J, T. Johnson's (Miles) £5 was paid for what usually cost £40, and tie Yolla's( Risby) saved £320. Master Warden Miles says the total amount of the tenders only amounted to £6 10s. 3d., made up thus : — Gatward, 19s. 6d. ; John son, 10s. 9d. ; Risby, £5. Very peculiar the discrepancy between figures, and but proves tjie necessity for publicinvestigatiou. Broad state ments made in this manner and pass ing unchallenged is not likely to clear up transactions open to grave doubts and accusation 6. With reference to the Kassa, the overloading ...

Mining Notes and Tips TBt Gnome.] Although Mr. Wesley has only had charge of the Sylvester mine for a few days he has forwarded tothe office a capital plan showing— 1, the contour of the principal section, the main shaft, engine-house, and adit level, line of lode, etc.; 2, a longitu dinal section of the workings and ground sloped, etc.; 3, a ground plau of the work ings, showing work done at different levels, direction of drives, etc. From these plans one may see at a single glance the amount of work that has been done at the mine.

Such a recommendation the proposals of the Government can hardly be said to possess. For instance a well-to-do farmer owning, or occupying a farm assessed at say £10,000 capital value would be called upon, under the provisions of the bill, to contribute two hundred tenpennies, or £8 7s. per annum, while from a trader in a moderate way in the towns doing a business of say £600 annual receipts, the tax gatherer would extract £20...

PALMISTRY. THE THIRD PHALANX. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 October 1893

PAUISTflY, THE THIRD PHALANX. The third phalanx oi each finger or tbe one nearest the palm has, on account of this proximity, somewhat the same signification as tbe palm itself; that is to say the material infit.iimt nradominates. eriviner a pre dilection for those things that regard the well-being of the body. AH persons who have this third phalanx long, large, thick, aud fat will be ruled by the desire to satisfy certain material wants, differing in character according to the finger on which it is found. If it be Jupiter that has this long, fat third phalanx it announces a real love and need of power, the end in view being principally the good things of this woi-ld — a good table, home comforts, etc. Such a man wishes to be the master of others not through pride or vain glory, but simply to be better lodged, clothed aud fed than they ; to ride comfort ably where many have to walk.

Mining Notes and Tips [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 October 1893

Mining Notes and Tips TBy Gnome.] Twenty-eight tons of concentrates only, from the Queen, last week, and no first class ore again. If shareholders are satisfied to let things fjo on at their present rate much longer, then they deserve to lose all they have risked. For weeks together it was nothing but promise and puff. Share holders were led to believe that the first clasB ore was at hand ready for blocking out and bags were wi:ed for from the mine in quantities that fully justified the belief that 200 tons of ore would be returned per week. The shareholders are kept in blissful ignorance of the cause of the wretched output and it is about time that they looked into matters for themselves. The excuse that work was hindered owing to certain parts of the mine requiring timber ing is ridiculous. Who ever beard of work being stopped at a mine having' three shafts working while the timbering was attended to? It is just a little too thin. The funny thing about it is that the 'financier' h...
