Black Dingo PROEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

Black Dingo [Bv J. J. Shueidan.] PROEM. With pen poised ready to indite my tale ; with the terrible narrative crowding liiysoul full of horror, I pause while the tho'ught, vain perhaps and s-lfisli, arises, Will the readers and critics be pleased with the story .' A pause filled by the teolian music of the sheoaks opposite inv window as tho. wind soughs through millions of pendant strings hanging from the innumerable branches — sad and sorrowful are the tones of these dark dwellers of Australia's weird, strange, and sombre hush — and fancy sets to the strain commands most potent and' charges urgent. Hark ! Like far distant voices. List to the murmured words that come as spirit utterances from beyond the veil ' Take no heed of the future, do that which is in you to do. Child of a day weigh well ere begin ning. Is this tiling vain anil unsubstantial, merely arising from ambition or vanity .' Or is it that which masters thy being and uses thee but as a means to convey a message, a less...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

With the advent of the Melbourne Cup came (be desire of the public to speculate on the tote. Now Low it is that totes are illegal, and yet in all the colonies straight-out betting is never interfered with is one of those strange anomalies for which no reason exists. In Sydney, Melbourne, and Lauuces ton the barber or tobacconist running the tote has suffered, raiding. In Melbourne the coup was made on the eve of Cup day ; but in Sydney and Launceston the polio* *eseiTed them selves until the numbers were up and paying out com inenced. In the former city they struck a swag ; but in Laun ceston the secret of the police inten tions had leaked out and the result was rather a fiasco. In Hobart the tote6 were left in peace, doubtless the authorities would be rather shame faced in following the example set them, considering the big V.D.L. lottery that is about to be put on the market, and by the biggest sweepist firm in the colonies. It is time that the Jaw was more reasonable on the matte...

RANDOM SHOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

RANDOM SHOTS. An insect there was of Elboden, And Tasmania's the sheep that he grow'd on ; Though he wax'd fat in health and in creased in wealth, He impoverished the sheep that he rode on. There once was a temperance Mayor Than whom there were few young folks gayer; Till at hist it was said, his nose became rod From kissing the barmaid to pay her. There once was a fellow named Hnll, Whose sayings the graat did appal, So he stood for election in North Hobart direction, Obeying the working man's call. There was a young man named Hartnoll Who stood on the kerb with his tart, Poll, When the bobby said ' Walk ' he told him to talk To the devil or Doctor Mc-Tall. A Bishop there ?was in Tasminia Who for missions outside had a mania, So he sent gold, so please yer, to Melanesia, And spent none at all in Tasmania. There was an Inspector of Trams, Who seldom sat down on his hams, But always well-booted, where'er the horn tooted He turned up in spite of the ' damns.' There was a young M.P. of...

POLITICAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

Political Notes. On Tuesday the Executive Council came to the decision that Parliament should be formally prorogued to December 5, and it is to be dissolved on Saturday, December 2, the new Parliament is to meet on March 1. It is anticipated that writs will be issued on December 2, nominations received from the 8th to the 13th, and elections on December 19th. As the week came to a close members and intending candidates were gfitting into campaigning order, and little knots could be met in the streets discussing the chances and anxious to gleam information as to the latest men in the field. Mr. Dobson's position at Brighton has received special attention, as he is by no means popular in the district. Mr. O. Floimore and Mr. T. C. Hodgman, local gentlemen, have been actively canvassed, but have refused the honor of nomination. It is, however, quite on the cards that the Premier will yet not have his desire grati fied of a walk over, as the names of Mr. Geo. Chapman and Mr. F. Bond are...

MUSIC AND THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

Music and the Stace. TBt Krino.1 A strong wave of dilettantism is at the present moment once more passing over the colony. Representative art was to the fore hist week with the amateurs at the exhibition in Freemasons' Hall, and this week and for many more to come they trill be on exhibit as musicians. This then is the time to quote a very recent and compe tent authority on empiricism, who says ; — ' There is always a likelihood, a danger if you choose to call it bo, that the beginner of any talent in any art will think himself a heaven-born genius. Of late especially the arts have been in the ascendant, and in all of them we have seen amateurs of more or less talent flocking in, fancying them selves born to be painters, musicians, actors. The cold neglect or rough criti cism of the world soon cures these fancies in a practical way. The philosophic cure lies not in the suppression of these amiable desires, but in the recognition and inculca tion of two facts, first that the possessi...

FREE SPEECH. THIS COMING STRUGGLE. DON'T BE MISLED BY A SHIBBOLETH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

f REE SPEE6H. THE COWING STRUGGLE. DON'T BE MISLED BY A SHIBBOLETH. Thk Ministry and their supporters, will probably go to the poll striving to work up the classes iu their favor by raising the question of the powers of the Legislative Council. If the workers are beguiled by a shibboleth into giving support to a Ministry that has no sympathy or interests in their well-being they will have but them selves to blame if reform is again relegated into oblivion. Each general election gives the people an opportu nity of asserting their rights and power, and that Parliament after Parliament is elected and results are disappointing is accounted for in so far as the people themselves have divided on the question of such and such a party or individual, and men have been more tied to party than principles, Can anything be so ab surd as conservative Dobsonia posing as a champion of the people against the encroachments of the Council — a body of men whose very existence is an inexplicable paradox...
