Cricket. TBr Point.! The juniors who make a start with a round of six matches to-day : — Union Jack v. Glenorchy, Endeavour v. Mercury, West Hobart v. Ormonde, Gasworks v. Boot nmkors, Trinity v. Rokeby, Dawn v. Bollerive. I predict wins for Glenorchy, Endeavour, West Hobart, Gasworks, Roke by, Bellerive. There are only four grounds worth playing on, the Bellerive, Rokeby, Glenorchy, and the West Hobart ; the latter has been greatly improved on since last season. The Junior Association want aliout a dozen umpires this season; there was great trouble last season in obtaining any one to take this important position George Lohmann has again left England to recuperate at the Cape. Medical men pronounce that his lungs are as good as hailed, and it is hoped that next season he will be again able to take his place in - In cricket field.

In the Western Tier. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 October 1893

In the Western Tier. [By Momus.1 Some time back business aud in clination landed me amid tlio wastes of the West, and after mounting sundry rugged tiers I found a brief repose in a hut surrounded by trees of the orchard persuasion. The owner of this intensely rural abode was in most things of tbe common or garden variety of Imsliman. The points wherein be departed from this standard were, first]}', his nose, which had an extrcinBly sharp point with a skyward inclination, and, secondly, in the possession of a solitary eye with an inimitable dash of roguery in it. I remember one evening the wind was prancing among the dancing gum trees, and hurling a pebbly hail upon tbe bark roof of our little bouse. My host (his name was Smith) sat for some time looking into the red embers that glowed and whitened on the hearth, when by way of creating a conversation I queried ' What the deuce made you come to live here, Smith P ' For one moment be turned his diluted gaze upon me, and the next a spa...

FREE SPEECH. OUR CLASS LEGISLATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 October 1893

FREE SPEECH. OUR CLASS LEGISLATORS. The week's work in the Legislative Council has not been of verj' great interest, as the members' intentions were so well known and would hardly call for jemark were it not for the limd question, liven the small quota to a deferential tax in the Ministe rial proposals, called a land tax, has been received with almost unani mous hostility. All sorts of unchal lenged statements were indulged in. No one apparently recognised that the small holder of lend in so far as he was in almost all cases possessed of a huge family, returned a very much greater revenue to the State per acre, assessed value, than the large land holder, even if the latter paid one shilling. It is hardly credible to think that it was in a generous spirit to the Treasurer's requirements that the land tax is sought to be made equal — not equitable. Long-headed men, and that property -hoi ders and capitalists always are, they recognise that if they allow any scheme of deferential taxat...

Hoiden Hubbub. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 October 1893

Hoiden Hubbub. Bicli and every mortal hour it taste, iu thin mnuierj the infinite liulrinib imslockoucd. THE COUNCIL AT WORK. The Upper House represent a class and believe in class legislation. Its personality is that of men used to the good things of this life. A goodly number of them are baldheads, such as are to be seen attending opera bouffe performances and giving special attention to the ballet. Almost every member is able to express himself in words with more or less merit, for have they not all had at least some training in pro posing toasts or returning thanks. So in the linguistic direction the present Assembly, composed of men who are neither honest conservatives nor yet progressive liberals, scarcely compare favorably with the ' Lord6.' The temperature of the upper chamber is rather higher than in the lower house, just sufficiently so to enhance the sleek, well-fed appear ance of the members. Nobody gets excited, for all have implicit faith in one another, and if Mr. McC...

ORATORS OR PRATTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 October 1893

ORATORS OR PRATTLERS. The debating society young men were to the fore last Monday night, clothed iu all the regalia of evening costume, aud as society professes ' culchaw ' of course it was present, Sir Lambert Dobsou talcing the chair. The function had much of the appear ance of the mutual admiration society, aud if it proved anything at all it conclusively showed that de batiug societies were not the schools in which to build leaders. Men who have the conviction that there is need of work to be done, wrongs to be righted, and that a deep and glorious religion of advancement is to be preached to all men and all nations, could not but feel contempt' or pity for misguided effort, for the empty platitudes that streamed forth with greater or less volubility from these debating clubs. Truly the veriest tyro on the stump, provided his heart was true to his subject, would have been a Cicero in com parison. The various subjects set by the judges were all on the well beaten track of formuli...

In Tonquin the tax levied upon foreigners is so groat that not even a Chinaman can make headway. The result of French occupation. In Algeria where she has been for 50 years the imports and exports to other european nations have been less than when the country was governed by the moon. It is computed that by the time the Emperor of Morocco is 60 years old ha will have 700,000 grandchildren, who, being of Imperial strain, are too proud to labor, to engage in any business, or even to put on their own shoes. America has only added 142 sea-going vessels to her mercantile marine for the year 1892. These were as a rule coasting schooners, some of them of a size rather strange to Australian eyes, though known in Sydney waters, several of the foro and afters being over 1000 tons. Very few steamers were added and iron ships are conspicuous by their absence. In New Zealand ...

Cricket. [Br Point.] The cricket season was officially opened on Saturday afternoon by the S.T.J.C.A. with the first of a series of matches. All the clubs that I predicted to win in last week's notes came out right. The most exciting game was between the Gasworks and Bootmakers, the former winning by 2 runs. Bootmakers are going to protest the ' dog ran away with the ball.' Last season's premiers (Union Jack) were defeated easily by Glenorchy. West Hobart won by an innings and 28 runs. A very good start for West. The Mercury were beaten by 26 runs by the Endeavour. Bokeby beat Trinity the latter not hav ing their strongest team.

Mining Notes and Tips FBt Gnome.1 SrLVEE QUEEN MINE. The position of the Silver Queen mine has been a very general topic of conversation duriug the past week. Since the half yearly, held August 31, and at which meet ing Mr. James, the mining manager, promised such great thing for the future, there has been a stead v decrease in the output from the mine. At the said meeting Mr. James stated that the shareholders had one of the grandest mines in Australasia. At No. 1 shaft they had come upon a 'splendid bunch of ore, which might be valued at .£40,000 net.' At No. 2 shaft. No. 2 level, they had ilO.OOO worth of ore laid open, 'making .£50,000 worth in re serve.' For every pound's worth of ore they were extracting from the mine they ?were laying open £5 worth. They had now almost 12 months' supply in reserve, and in six months' time he hoped they would have two years' in sight.
