HOIDEN HUBBUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

Hoiden Hubbub. Each and every mortal hour it lasts, in tfait manner; the infinite hubbub unslackeued. DEAN DUNDAS AND FREE SPEECH. It rarely comes within the province of Thk Cupper to congratulate the clergy on outspokenness, therefore we rise to the occasion joyfully and clap Dean Dundas on the back with a ' Well done, old man !' Too often the Church puts a pair of blind spec tacles on rather than see the evils that wealth is guilt}' of, either iu the individual or the corporate body, and thus every day women are being forced down into the most loathsome of lives that they may get sufficient money to keep their children and themselves from starvation. The sweater and the seducer arc allowed to go abroad aud take his seat in the churches unchallenged, and eveiy word of the sermon carefully studied lest his conscience should be twinged. The Dean has challenged a certain section of our 'unco guid' commu nity for drawing revenues from brothels, and that section is now going about seeki...

PALMISTRY. KNOTTY FINGERS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

PALMISTRY. KNOTTY FINGEUS. In knotty fingers the conception is slow and difficult, requiring both time and labor to develop it, which is attributed to the super-abundance bile in those organisa tions, which hinders the perfect circulation of the nervous fluids. Each knot has its particular name and signification. If the knot between the first and second phalanx is large it is called the philosophi cal knot, and indicates a struggle between the reason and inspiration. It is found in tho hands of independent theorists ; of those who believe nothing without positive proof; of reasoners, and of persons who have orderly minds. Tho joint between the second and third phalanxes is called the knot of material order, and indicates a struggle between the laws of reason and the material in stincts ; it gives practical order in business affairs, and calculations regarding personal advantages. If excessively large, it shows an ogotist ; and, in fingers were both knots are piesent, the poetical is...

BOXING. MURI' i'.Y V. PKBIIV. There was a very fair attendance at the Derweut Athlotic Club on Monday evening last to witness the oontest between Charlie Murphy, the lightweight, aud Uarry Perry, the featherweight. The hall was not so well filled as the promoters wishei, hut when the management realise thai it sb better to have a full room at a low figure than an empty house at high tariff, they will have no cause to complain of the want of patronage.

'This was explained hy Mr. Kemp; who stated thit Perry and Murphy were disappointed witli the house and did not care to box under the circumstanoes, he would not charge for the hall and this would enable the winner to take the whole of the gate. Then Clifford stepped in the ling and in timated that instead of eight rounds as originally proposed there would bo only six. However, there was a mistake some wher...

MINING NOTES AND TIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

Mining Notes and Tips' [By Q-nomb.1 The now find in the Chums bids fair to t-e of real importance to the Lefrby' fieia. It will prove a great encouragement to those plucky enough to reopen others of our old mines deserted in senseless panic, years ago — and there are several similar though smaller claims on this field. If as we hope Chums wake a (fourth) dividend paying claim hern, the resources of the mine must be better husbanded than of yoru. East Pinafores have failed to maintain tho high price they have attained on strik ing tho deep load, but further develop ments will probably shor this lead payable in places, and we trust on the East Pinafore ground. The old Era was the first to discover such a loiJ of similar appearance and the Amalgamated Era Company should reopen this promising part of their property as well as Higgs and Rarrott's reef. Queen shareholders await with no small disgust the inevitable result of the visit of inspection. What possible use can it be a for direct...

CHAPTER I. ON YARRA'S BANKS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 November 1893

CHAPTER I. On Yarba's Banba. One bright moonlight, night an ocean steamer was ploughing its course up Hob son's Bay, its decks crowded with eager gazers looking for the first glimpse of the city. Noticeable among them was a young Englishman, fair-haired and cleancomple xion ed. His garb was of that nondescript character affected by tourists, and calculated to excite the risible muscles of the beholder. One glance at his frank face, however, suf ficed to dissipate such unseemly mirth, and one felt tempted to extend the hand and claim acquaintance. The lights of Melbourne and its environs at length appear, a vast ring of glittering fires in the foreground, and the glamour and heat of the Queen City of the Southern Cross stretching away to the horizon, and struggling upwards blending with the night. By and bye the Yarra is entered, and the outlines of mighty building* soar heaven ward, the moonlight lending a misty gran deur to their forms, and imparting to the massive walls the sembla...

Yachting Yabber. This afternoon the opening of the so-isoa of the Derwent Sailing Club will take place off the Esplanade by a series of manoeuvres under the guidance of the commodore of the club, when it is to be. hoped that all yachts whether on the club register or not, will take part in it and help to make the show as much a success as possible. Norfolk Bay regatta did not turn out such a success financially as woe expected. The co.umittee of the Derwent Sailing Club chartered the ' Oonah' with the expecta tion of addiug- funds to the club for prizes, but yachtsmen did not extend the support that was expected from them. The regatta consisted of the sailing races held under the Derwent Sailing Club rules. Clyde, with Arthur Williams in command, won the 2Hft. race, with Mistral (late Lil) second, sailed by George Mayue, showing that in good hands tboro is a lot. of speed to be got out of her.
