HUMORS OF LONDON CABBIES. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 10 July 1907
HUMOUS OF T.ONDON CABBIES. One ot the strongest objections to the Introduction of the taxi meter in lxmclcn was that the cabman would be deprived of any op portunity lu Oisiilay his choice selec tion ot language and skill In humorous repartee. Some of the hansom frater nity, of course, have no sense of humor, but the majority are decidedly facetious. Here are some examples of witty and sarcastic 'cabbylsms.' To apreehite them properly it must be un derstood that the fare has offered a single shilling in payment for a ride jusl iviihin the two mile limit:— 'Aps you quite sure you can spare this?' remarks the cabby with a bump of humo.'. 'D'ye think you'll be able t- rub along on the other IS till next Friday? It's Roin' the pace you know.' 'If you'll take my tip, guv'nor,' runs another form of gentle reproach, 'you'll go and see a hoculist. You 'ailed this bus by mistake. You wants a red or green, or yellow 'bus — black ain't in your line at all.' 'Thank yer, guv'nr,' says another ca...

THE WANING CRESCENT. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 10 July 1907
THE WANING CRESCENT. The arrangement come to by Great Britain, France and Spain for the maintenance of the integrity of Northern Africa will have a greater effect than checking Germany in any dreams of conquest It will lessen the Sultan's influence, such as it is, In that part of Africa where it exists, and more especially in Egypt, the British title In which grows with every ad vance in Anglo-French friendship. The Sultan's power, were it not for the re ligious side, would of course have perished earlier, for that obstacle out o£ the way and England might turn the Khedive into a vassal in every sense, which theoretically be cannot be while the Sultan is his 'overlord.' Never was a country so strangely held as historic Egypt, which owes al legiance to Turkey and Is yet virtually under British rule, while its policy has to be directed to suit a number of com mercial interests. Only here, too, is the British Crown in actual business, selling a. utility to all who are willing to buy, a...
PLAYING CARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 10 July 1907
PLATING CAUDS. j| Very few card players l;now any thing of the history ot live images on their cards. The French are .'jelloveil to be the first people iniSurope to uS3 playing-cards, and, as first made, cards were supposed to represent the different classes of persons iki the kingdom. The 'hearts' wene the ecclesiastics, or chcirmen, and rairly cards of thiB suit had a cope which somewhat resembled the heart In form. The figure we call a 'spade1' was originally a plkehead, and typified the soldiers and noblUty. The 'diamond' was reallv a stone to represent the artisan class; while the farmeDS were ' symbolised by the trefoil or clovter leaf, called by us a 'club.' The lour kings were originally David, Alexander. Caesar, and Charlemagne, representing the four great monarchies; while the Queens were Arglve, Esther, 'Judith, and Pallas, typical ot birth, piety, fortitude, and wisdom. The lenaves Were either knishts or servants to knights, but It is thought the former, because on cards...
White Wages on the Band [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 10 July 1907
White Wages on tho Band The Johannesburg correspondent of 'The Times' says:— At the arescnt moment the whito miners on the Rand are practically a privileged caste. They have been al most exclusively confined in the past to immigrant Englishmen, principally from Cornwall. Their earnings aro enormous. The official wage bill of the particular men among whom the strike originated shows that the aver age rate paid during March was equal to nearly £700 a year, while the highest rate paid was equal to close on £1300. The wages paid in some mines show a still higher total in individual cases. In return for these wages the work done is almost entirely that of com paratively easy supervision. Even taking into consideration the inevit able risks to life and health involved in any underground operations, it is safe to say that nowhere would any similar class of men be so well off. Tho question of pay has hardly been raised in the prcs?nt controversy. Its real origin Is partly the ordinary trade...
The Copper Position [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 10 July 1907
The Cooper Position The latest number of the New York 'Engineering and Mining Journal' has the following with reference to the copper position : — 'The statistical position of copper is still apparently strong. During the first quarter of this yoar there was probably no increase in production. iCn the other hand, the exports de creased, leaving more copper available for domestic consumption. It is highly doubtful it there were any in creases In tha consumption during the first quarter of the year. Tho in eivaso in 1906 was greatly exaggerated. Instead of the 20 per cent, increase, which was commonly talked about, the, actual consumption, about G00,000,0001b, showed a gain of only about 7.7 per cent, over 1905. However, the pmStzr tion in North America having shown an increase of less than five per cent, and the year having begun without any stock to speak of, a great increase in pries was inevitable, although, as in all cases where calm judgment Is left behind, tho anxiety of consum...
