HOW EUROPE SEES US. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
HOW EUROPE SEES US. The manner in which the English na- tion receives the news from the front should serve as a lesson of the utmost importance to us. A great nation, a mighty Empire which has spread the folds of its Royal purple over the four cardinal points of the globe, over all the seas, and in all the continents, suffers defeat from a mere handful of peasants, who are obstructing the civi- lising work which old Albion is pur- suing in Africa. And yet the English nation, whose prestige his never been affected to such an extent from the times of the great Napoleon, has not risen against the Government, has not lost confidence in those at its head, nor has it, by following the advice of dema- gogues, created dilficulties to its states men.-"Neologos," Athens.

He must refuse the appli- cation.

A SHOCKING FATALITY, AT A BRICKWORKS AT GLEN DHU. A LAD TERRIBLY MANGLED. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
A SHOCKING FATALITY, AT A BRICKWORKS AT GLEN DHU. A LAD TERRIBLY MANGLED. A terrible accident occurred at Messrs. J. and T. Gunn's brickworks at Glen Dhu on Saturday forenoon, whereby a lad of 17 named Albert George Parsonage, son of Mr. J. F. Parsonage, till comparatively recently a well-known hairdresser in this city, and now engaged in farming pursuits at Glen Dhu, lost his life. 'The un- fortunate lad was engaged feeding a powerful clay reduction plant, when he got his foot between the rollers. How he managed to do this can only be conjectured, for no one actually wit- nessed the affair, but it is believed that his foot slipped. The result was ter- rible. The rollers, which are set 2½ inches apart, pursued their resistless course and drew in the whole of Par- sonage's left leg. The lad's screams attracted the notice of another em- ployee, Samuel Hutton, who had only left him about five minutes before to break up some coal for the engine, which he was driving, and which he prompt...

OUR CHRISTMAS GIFT TO "TOMMY ATKINS." KIPLING'S POEM. "HE'S AN ABSENT-MINDED BEGGAR." FORTHCOMING PUBLICATION. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3. The success which has attended the publication of Mr. Rudyard Kipling's patriotic poem in other places as a means of raising money for the Pa- triotic Fund has induced the proprie- tor of the "Examiner" to fall into line. The conditions laid down by the "Daily Mail," which purchased the manuscript for £250, were that news papers who reproduced the poem should contribute five guineas to the fund. This has been done by all re- putable journals, and we are, by the outgoing mail, sending a cheque for the amount to the proprietors of the "Daily Mail." The poem will be reproduced by us on WEDNESDAY NEXT, JANUARY 3, In the form of an illustrated sheet, and those who receive or retain the same will be expected to contribute a shill- ing (or more) to the Patriotic Fund. In the old country the large sum of £37,000 has, according to the cables, been raised by thi...

SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
During the past year the trade of the port has been well maintained, and the exports have been much larger than the preceding twelve months. This is mainly due to the great de- mand for oats and flour from South Africa, large supplies having been drawn from Launceston and other polts in Tasmania. The steamers Pa- teena and Coogee have been kept busily engaged in the Launceston and Mel- bourne service, both with the passen- ger traffic and cargo trade, whilst the steamers Jessie Darling and Helen Nicoll made special trips for produce. In addition, several small sailing ves- sels have frequently visited the port from Adelaide and Melbourne. The West Coast trade has further expanded, and the Union Company has now the passenger steamers Mahinapua (500 tons), Wareatea (460 -tons), Kawatiri (458 tons), and Kia Ora (300 tons) regularly employed, whilst the cargo steamers Kittawa (1247 tons), Koonya (1093 tons), Orowati (460 tons), and Meeinderry (217 tons) have plenty of work to do.

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. Local musical institutions have for the most part progressed fairly well during the past year. In Hobart local amateurs have" successfully produced "The Mikado " and several, other comic operas, and in Launceston the local Operatic Society has "H.M.S. Pinafore" in rehearsal. The Philharmonic So- ciety has given several enjoyable con- certs in the capital, and in the north we have had the Launceston Orchestral Society, a capable body of musicians. In January an intercolonial band con- test took place in Launceston, and at- tracted a considerable amount of at- tention. The premier honours were won by Code's Band, of Melbourne, with the Hillgrove (New South Wales) and Launceston City next; then came in the order given Hobart Garrison, Syd- ney Railway, St. Joseph's, Second Bat- talion, and Hobart City.

THE ALSATIANS TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
THE ALSATIANS TO-DAY. Augusta Latouche. writing in the "Paris Magazine," says: The loss of one of the loveliest dis- tricts of France and one of the most fertile; the loss of brothers among the bravest, most disciplined, and trusty of soldiers-this was the greatest grief of France conquered by Germany in 1870. Over the loss of the five mil- liards of francs there was scarcely a sigh. Of what account was money? It might change hands and be found again with a little patience and much cour- age, for it vanishes away and does not take root. But the soil, which remains and is immovable, which lives and gives life! The loss of that drew tears. To France it was as if she had been de- prived of one of her members, and, like the cripple who has lost his limbs, she has never ceased since the day of the amputation to groan and lament over her loss. From the recesses of the two imperial and royal courts rumours of the im- pending hostilities were reaching the frontiers. Not a day passed without...

TRADE AND COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 1 January 1900
TRADE AND COMMERCE. The year has been a busy one in commercial circles, as naturally might be expected from the large harvest and rise in prices of minerals and wool. Not only do the figures of all our finan- cial institutions show a decided im- provement, but those of the consoli- dated revenue also. The revenue totals for the eleven months of the year as compared with the previous twelve months are-1899, £ 858,404; 1898, £822,888; increase, £35,516. The latter sum would have been fur- ther increased by about £17,000 from the land tax, which, owing to the new assessment, will not be collected until this year. Had this source of revenue yielded its ordinary quota, the receipts would have been £52,000 in excess of 1898. A similar advance is noticeable in our imports and exports. We are able to give the figures for the eleven months only, and they are: 1899 1898 £. £ Imports ............. 1,624,900 1,502,849 Exports ......:........2,238,575 1,581,388 3,863,475 3,084,237 This shows an ...
