FREE SPEECH. CLIQUISH AND GRAB. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893

f REE SPEE6H. CLIQUISH AND GRAB. Tjie ethics of Hobart's everyday business and social life are that all enterprises that do not emanate from certain charmed Hall-marked circles must be discouraged — they must be stamped out. If this inner brother hood were made of the stuff tliat pro motes social advancement and com mercial prosperity all would be well; but such unfortunately for the colony is not the case. They are but past masters iu the game of grab, and the stianger is their natural enemy, lest theii profits might be decreased. Consequently Tasmania in the sister colonies is a byword and all our pro jects, speculations, and even indi viduals are discounted as Tasmanian. It is immaterial whether it is a big venture, kucIi as a steamship com pany that extends its operations to our waters, breaking up long-existing monopolies and giving the colony new opportunities to get into line with its rivals, or even a small business ven ture it must be crushed out, for it is not local. And t...

A DEMOCRAT OFF THE LINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893

A DEMOCRAT OFF THE LINE. It was very evident by Mr. Mulcahy's speech at the citizens' meeting held at the Town Hall that that gentleman has yet something to learn on the great democratic issue, One man one vote. He recognises that what is a correct basis for a Parliamentary franchise is not applicable to the lesser body the Municipal Council, aud trotted out the old argument of bricks and mortar. Truly, Mr. M.'s close contiguity to the aldermanic fat men must have upset his balance somewhat, or he could not have given voice to such an exploded fetish. If the Bo-called truism had been preached by a conservative it could have been well passed over with contempt, but coming from the lips of a democrat, who justly has the confi dence of a large section of the com munity, notice is enforced. The safety of a man's capital and his stately pile of buildings is not ensured by the Municipal Council, but by the central Government, and that only so far as the people are either kept iu subjec ti...

THE POLITICAL CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893

THE POLITICAL CRISIS. Tue political crisis brought about by the Legislative Council rejecting the Government taxation proposals has been the means of intensifying and exhibiting all the weaknesses of the Cabinet, aud on Monday and Tuesday it was generally understood that the Treasurer had tendered his resignation owing to his colleagues, with the exception perhaps of Mr. Hartnoll, wishing to accept the position that was being forced upon them by the Upper Chamber. Every thing pointed to a breaking-up of the Ministry through want or cohesive ness and independence, and their in spired organ was doing all iu its power to castigate them into decided action and spending its spleen in re vilement of the Treasurer. The dire effects of a dissolution takiug place before our finances were placed on a better footing were well advertised, and as a result Tuesday afternoon saw the Ministry again iu their places, apparently with differences healed and prepared with iusineere speech to stand again...

BOTHWELL. Wo have just been favored with a visit from his Lordship 'Arry Hutchiuson O Lord, 'Arry didn't we make preparations to make him welcome.

Now.' (Opens mouth). Male mem bers rise immediately. To girls— 'Now my lambs you try.' The girls demurely catch hold, each thumb and finger of dress, and 'bob.' 'Very good, my children, very good, very good.' Scene — Vestry ; choristers seated waiting anxiously for Bishop's arrival; he comes, and is made much of by incumtent, who marches him past choristers, who are expecting usual address. His Lordship gazes around. The girls rise and curtsey, the boys do likewise. Lordship mouth is open to speak ; no, it is merely to yawn and pass along without say ing a word. Now, w...

The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893

The Turf. Only recently the tiro leading racing clubs of Tasmania, met in solemn conclave to draw up certain rules and regulations for the guidance and better conduct of the sport of horseracing in Tasmania. One of the chief objects of the conferenoe was to prevent different country clubs holding meets on the same day to the detriment of the sport generally. The Northern body took under ite maternal wing all clubs northwards of Oatlands, the T.R.C. thoRe to the south of tl at township. In the most unwarranted manner the Tasinanian Turf Club have announced their intention of holding a Bpi'ing meet oil the 9th day of November, which for the past 15 or 10 years has by general consent been conceded the Colebrook Club for holding their spring meet. It is not difficult to foresee the result of tho unsportsmanlike conduct of tho Northern club — their meet must result in financial disaster, for which nobody cares, while the Colebrook meet ib bound to be interfered with to a oertain extent. ...

Political Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893

Political Notes. Driven to bay by the all-round pressure brought to bear — public opinion, the openly-expressed opinion in the House, and the opinion given in no measured terms by the whole Dress of the colonv — the Premier a.t last delivered himself on Tuesday of a ministerial statement which was supposed to announce the intentions of Ministers in dealing with the con stitutional crisis. That the statement was delivered to a full House and to crowded gal leries is beyond quest ion, but that Ministers committed themselves to any definite course of action is another matter. Indeed the Premier outri railed bis famous prototype, the Delphic oracle, in the ambiguity of his utterances and left his hearers at the end of the statement very much where they were before he opened those lips on whose accents the colony may bo said to have hung. He certainly with a poor attempt at braggadocio told the House that Ministers were determined to have a dissolution, but as he studiously avoided commi...

Music and the Stage. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893

Music and the Stage. [By Krino.] Gourlay and Walton's Musical Comedy Company initiated their short season at the Royal on Tues day'evening by a most effective re presentation of Siras's masterpiece of humor ' Skipped b}- the Light of the Moon,' iii which the talented members of this clever combination managed to keep even a staid typical Hobart audience in a chronic state of hilarity from rise to fall of the curtain. Both Messrs. Gourlay and Walton's talent in this line of comedy is of prime order, and the agility they displayed in the many mirth provoking scenes, such as the oyster shop, the drastic garden scene, their comic song singing and their spontaneous witticisms prove them entitled to a foremost place on the comic stage. Garnishee Mclntyre electrified the house with his 'Hooli- gans,' Messrs. Chalmers and Cameron filled their parts well, Miss Leigh ford was a capital Mrs. Dingle throughout, Miss Hastings a charm ing Mrs. Crackle. Of Sarah, Miss Harte made a very effective s...

The Plebiscite. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893

The Plebiscite. In accordance with the resolution of the Municipal Council, the plebiscite was taken yesterday afternoon on the questions as to whether the number of aldermen Bhould be increased, mayor elected by the people, and the division of the city into wards. Unfor tunatelv. very little interest was taken in the proceedings owing to the way in which everything had been kept dark until the last week, and then rushed through, not (riving sufficient time for the citizens to understand the questions that they were called upon to decide, and great credit is due to Mr. Hall and the Labor Electoral Loaguc for their energy in getting up the requisition for a public meeting, otherwise the whole thing would have been almost mh rota. The Council were quite unjusti fied in reducing the plebiscite to farce by requiring the polling of 8000 votes and a two-thirds majority. Appended is the voting :— Increase of Aldermen : For, 1022 ; Against, 152 ; Informal, 46. Majority, 870. Klection of May...

A Fight in the Dark. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

A Fight in the Dark. A writer in the New York SunJ says :— We were in camp on the banks of the Brazo River of Texas for the night. At supper time a dispute arose between two men, and before anyone had looked upon it as a serious matter they were facing each other with knives in their hands. The disputants were border men. The lie had been givon, and that meant fight. It was simply how they should fight— how to give the smaller man an equal chance. charge of the outfit ; ' thar's an old abode and we'll hang a blanket at the door. We'll turn you both lose in thar and when I fire the fun kin begin.' Nobody said no. He would have been looked upon as chicken-hearted. The dU putants readily agreed. Had one of them declined he would have been branded a coward. The frontier has its laws aud customs. Both men stripped to the waist and each one was armed with a keen bowie knife. There were no threats, no boasting. Each pulled off his shoes, and Jim, the half-breed, was the first man to pass i...

The Victoria Disaster JACK TAR'S OPINION [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

The Victoria Disaster JACK TAR'S OPINION The following letter is that of a young sailor to his parents on the day following the accident, dated from Tripoli : — ' Since I last wrote we have been on a cruise with the fleet of sixteen ships, two Admirals in charge — Vice(Sir Georgo Tryon), Roar (Admiral Markhain) — to the ports in the Holy Land. Yesterday morning we left Ueyrout for this place (Tripoli) with fourteen ships, steaming along on in two lines, the flagships leading, Vice in Victoria, Rear in Camperdown.

That means a stand-off for the hands during the afternoon, ex cept -he people in the stoke-hole, engine rooms, and wheel chains, etc. Everything went on well until, 3.30, the sea like a shoot of glass ; and about two miles from the land in the Bay of Tripoli, Sir George made a signal for a counter movement — that is the lines to turn back by wheeling inwards — the lines of ships being...
