Cox's Bight. A GOOD SITE FOR A LABOR SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

Cox's Bight. A GOOD SITE FOR A LABOR SETTLE MENT. Great efforts have been made during the present year in the main hind colonies, particularly in New South Wales and Victoria, to encourage settlement on the land, and all sections of the community have to some extent vied with each other in supplying funds and assistance to further that desirable object, and the governments have likewise been fully alive to giving encouragement to the movement. Large numbers of men have likewise been sup plied with the necessary tools, provisions, miner's rights, and free passes to the various old goldfields, in the hopes that they would be able to, at least, eke out a livelihood during the present depression. It will take time to get actual results from the village settlements, and even the most enthusiastic cannot expect them all to turn out well. The returns from the miners are, however, more immediate, and from time to time the intercolonial papers hare been able to record the turning up of some ...

Vagabond Jottings. BOTHWELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

Vagabond Jottings. BOTHWELL. Strangers passing through our little township would be struck by tho bilious look of the people this morning. The cause is very simply explained. The annual S.S. tea meeting was held last night, and a performance afterwards by the Clyde Amateur Dramatic Club. Two such treats as that is enough to make it very hard for even tho strongest stomachs to digest. We fancy by tho manner in which the amateur actors performed on tho tables that they nust hare had to part up tloir cash, at by ;he way they demolished the good thing* it the table proved they were more pro fessionals than amateurs. It would not be Pair for me to criticise the manner in which Lhe- piece 'Milky White' was played, as bhey acted under groat difficulties. A very Eull stomach doesn't give one much show to laugh for foai of the consequences. However, the audience did their best to show their approval by stamping on the door and keeping their mouths closed. The acting of the two ladies, Mrs. B...

Mining Notes and Tips [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

Mining Notes and Tips [Br Gnohb.] The fact that the Western is turning out such large quantities of nrat-chus ore speaks well for the productiveness of the mine. The concentrators are now in full ?wing, and the future of the claim will be watched with marked interest. At the Junction a parcel of ore in possession of the sub-tributors has been soiled as having been stolen from another claim. The mine is looking well for the future. East Pinafore has struck stone, and shares have hardened in rnnsamianca. This claim adjoins th« Amalgamated Golden Era section. Queen's, as usual, have been the talk in mining circles. The output still continues unacoountably low, and in spite of all the excuses made and explanations volunteered by the champion ' buttonholer,' there is a very general feeling that things are being shamefully managed if shareholder* have not been most grossly deceived in the statements (hat have been made regarding the reserves in the mine within the last six monthi.

Wednesday produced an afternoon concert at the Town Hall with a well-chosen programme. Bach's fami liar toccata on the Doric mode (D-D all naturals, in which many old Ger man chorales were written), opened the concert, and Mr. Chipperfield dis played some good pedalling in this. For Mendelssohn's op. 65 the Town Hall organ is not the fittest for dis play, which the organist who played it, well, must have found out by this time. Salome's grand cheur (? choeur) and Bests allegro in V were two typical specimens of the French aud English modern organ style, and were fitly interprete...

Political Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

Political Notes. The political situation still remains un settled, as it jet remains to be seen how the Legislative Council will take the new Land Tax Bill for 1803, which passed through all it« stages in (lie Assembly on Thursday, and was sent up to the Council the following day. In our last issne we indicated (lie main feature-' of the proposal, as announcer! by the Premier in the House on Friday, 20th. It did not, however, enjoy a perfectly smooth passage through the Assembly, as the House was divided first of nil on the Second read ing, which was carried by 22 to S, anil sub sequently on the proposal that the tax should be Jd. instead of one penny, the latter amount being affirmed by the narrow majority of two, the division being 1 4 to 12. t uc« lay saw a warm debate over the de fence estimates which had been recom mitted, and as some misconception appears to exist as to the vote, it may bu as well briefly to explain matters.

FREE SPEECH. WORK MUST BE FOUND FOR THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

f REE SPEE6H. WORK MUST BE FOUND FOR THE PEOPLE. As a first requisite to the prosperity of the country it is absolutely neces sary that itfl population should be fully and profitably employed. Our politicians, however, appear to think otherwise aud consider it good policy first to intensify the distress by in creasing the unemployed list, at the same time leaving untouched or nearly so, the salaries of the orna mental and more highly-paid officials, and for any out of the charmed circle to even hint at reducing the judicial and Government House expenses is deemed almost sacrilege — it is as great a crime as being disloyal to Her Gracious ; secondly, increasing the burden of taxation ou those clashes of the community least able to bear it, by imposing heavy duties on all the necessaries of life. What wonder that under such conditions the cry of the unemployed is once again raised, even though it is the spring of the year, the season when it was fondly hoped by many starving families ...

V.A.T.C. SPRING MEETING. The second day's racing of the Spring Meeting of the Victoria Amateur Turf Club toek place on Saturday hist at Caul field amidst the most favored weather sur roundings. The principal event of the day, the Caulfield Cup, produced quite a sensation in more ways than one, as out of a field of 27, or five less than last year, Tim Swiveller, a rank outsider, passed the post first, with Sainfoin and Oxide in close attendance. A melee occurred between the three placed horses within 60 yards of the post and in full view of the judge's box. Immediately the horses returned to the weighing yard protests were entered against th» winner by the owners of both Sainfoin and Oxide for ' boring.' A long inquiry was held, and it was not until after the last race was decided that the stewards announced that the protests hud been dis missed, and therefore Tim Swiveller was the winner of the Caulfield Cup of 1893. The owner of Sainfoin, however, being dis satisfied with the rulin...
