Sang Euchred. I'm cuclired. I'm euchred. I thought that tho country I'd ruled drasticly Was euchred, was euchred, was euchred ; But I'm sorry to say that I find it no fun To see out at Brighton my ancient friend Gunn Opposing me now, who by the gory old sun Am euchred, am euchred, am euchred. I eat on A. Douglas, and thought tint he too Was euchred, was euchred, was euchred. I knew that John Henry would look very blue When euchred, when euchred, when euchred ; And as for Neil Lewis, it seemed plain to me That he with C.

BRIGHTON [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
BRIGHTON -By Orphan. We do not want turnips and cabbages banged round in the House. When we do, we will get a celestial to represent our dis trict. What we want is powder, grape and canister ; something real ; something that ran be heard and felt. Therefore, we sav we will find a Gunn to assist and strengthen the battery, one that has been proved and is reliable. Still we all were sorry for the lecturer on Monday night, at hall, Pontville. He accepted his chairman in all confidence, poor man. I think it was a horrible joke to perpetrate against any meeting. Boney in troduced the lecturer in suitable language, on the grace, ease and fluency of which I need not dwell, as everyone is ai'are of his natural gift iu that respect. But I would liliC to ask why he took his 6tand shoulder to shoulder with the speaker during his lecture. May be it was to show off his fine, manly figure, and open countenance, by way of contrast. Again, is it the correct thing fora chairman to pull out his clock...
THE EARDLEY ARMS CASE. THE LICENCE GRANTED, WITH A CAUTION AGAINST SUNDAY TEADING. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
The Eardley arms Case. THE LICENCE GRANTED, WITH A CAUTION AGAINST SUNDAY TRADING. The full report of the Eardley Arms case which appeared in The Clipper hist Saturday created an intense interest in the verdict of the Licensing Bench, and as a consequence when the court met on Mon day the hall was thronged principally by licensed victuallers, the general Dublic being well represented. Mr. Ball made a powerful speech in opening for the licensee, Mr. Reid, and traversed point by point the evidence submitted on behalf of the petitioners. He criticised very severely the statements of the several witnesses, and contended that they were actuated by personal spite in bringing such grave charges against his client. Detectives Gavitt and Franklin gave evidence to the effect that since Reid's occupancy they had in the prosecution of their duty paid fre quent visits to the hotel, and always found it one of the best conducted houses in the city. Prostitutes never assembled there, and no complai...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
TO CORRESPONDENTS. ExaLisHHiti.— Too much pressure on our space for letters not of general interest. Weturree with you, however, it is vulgar to compare u lady with a savage. It is likewise beneath the dignity of the true king, who reigns by right of the divinity of beinc an able man. and a ruler of a nation, and the custodian of its welfare to be placed in juxtaposition with the bolder of a tan-dry symbolical office, merely the fetish, the idol of statecraft. Caleb.— Possibly the fictions answer to correspondents is meant as a criticism on Thb Cmppek, and if so we feel complimented that our journal is bitter and nasty to the taste of the editor of the Will,— a dose of medicine in fact. Charley onght to compel him to take his dose re gularly, it miirlit liven him up and give him natural proclivities.

AN ACTION FOR SLANDER. REID V. RODWAY. A COMPROMISE. DEFENDANT PAYS COSTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
AN ACTION FOR SLANDEK. REID V. RODWAY. A COMPROMISE. DEFENDANT PAYS COSTS. The Eardley .Arms Hotel was the subject of an action for slander in the Supreme Court on Wednesday last, when the licen see, William Henry Reid, instituted an action against Leonard Rodway, a dentist, claiming jEIOO damages. The Solicitor General (Hon. Alfred Dobson) appeared for Mr. Reid, whilst Mr. Herb. Nicholson for defendant. The court was crowded. The Solicitor-General opened the case for the plaintiff, stating that Rodway had stated amongst other things that Reid 'kept a hotel and allowed whores and women of bad repute to assemble there, and that he got his living by these people. If he was allowed to go on in thiB way the house would be damaged and the license would be opposed.' Counsel read letters written by Rodway to Reid, in which the former accused the latter of writing anonymous letters reflecting on hie (Rodway's) charac ter. Henry James, manager of the Cascade Brewery Co., stated that Rodway c...

ALDERMANIC STAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
Aldermanic Stakes. Contrary to expectations the race for the three seats at the City Council which took place on Thursday last was fought with interest owing to the different bodies which had brought their influence to bear on the electors. A field of five faced the starter, viz., Messrs. W. Smith, T. A. Reynolds, Jno. Watchorn, T. Aniott, and J. T. Soundy. The first named three were the favorites, and justified the backers by romping past the post the easiest of winners, albeit the lead assumed by Smith was rather a surprise. Tommy Amott was never in it from the jump, and Soundy, an untried colt, badly ridden by the parsons, showed his greenness by being unable to re spond when called upon to do so under whip and spur. The Tasmanian leviathan had a book on the event and the betting was something like the following : — G to 4 on Reynolds, 2 to 1 Watchorn, 3 to 1 Smith, 4 to 1 Soundy, a million to 1 Amott. Smith was heavily handicapped, as, in addition to being a heavy weight the mor...

FREE SPEECH. WILL THE PEOPLE AWAKE ? [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
f REE SPEE6H. WILL THE PEOPLE AWAKE P The General Elections ! In every community of busy men and eager toilers the times act as an incentive to combined effort to score another victory on the march of progress. Designing men of course manage to scramble to the front, but likewise are heard the battle cries of eager aspirants — men who are in touch with the great hearts of the people, and who feel that it is their duty and their right to fight the good fight. The hum of the multitude is heard in busy debate in every avenue of life. In fact as man is a fighting animal and loves battle in whatever form it may assume, the humblest citizen, being possessed of the necessary wea pons — intelligence and a vote — finds it for the nonce good to be alive, and he is inspired with new hopes and higher aspirations than his present hard struggle for existence. In Tasmania, however, the general elections appear to have no earnest meaning. The humdrum hey-day go day of life has scarcely a ripple on ...

LOCAL INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
Local Industry. Alderman Bradley is deserving of the tliauks of the community for his persis tent efforts at the Council table tu induce his brother alderman even in a small way to stimulate loc;il industry. Some time aoro Mr. Bradlev was successful in e:irry iug a motion, after some opposition, t-- the effect that police should )je chid in Tasina, uiau Iweod.

Right gallantly has the cause of the people been upheld dm-iug the recent general election in JNew Zea land. The country went into the struggle somewhat perplexed as to the final result, but full of hope, as a new power had been brought into politics in the extension of the franchise to women, and democracy was some what afraid of the new force. The result has been ' triumphant democ racy' far exceeding the anticipations of even the most sanguine, the results being : — Liberals & Government supporters 54 Conservative oppositionists ... 14 Independents ?

THE MAYORAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
THE MAYORAL ELECTION. The City Council assemble at noon to--lay for the purpose of electing one of their number to fill tue Mayoral chair for the enduing year. When the numbers are up it will probably be found that Alderman Crisp will again be called unon to occupy that position, and as we are bouud to liave numerous visitors while the Exhibition is open, should the choice fall on Mr. Crisp it will doubtless prove a fitting one. *EL. Tyers, the winner of all last year's amateur swimming championships, is only 17 years of age, and he is said to be willing to swin both Nubball, the present English one mile professional champion, and McCaskor, the American champion, con ? coding them 100 yards start in the mile, ttie'fitake to be ,£1,000. , .

We ate glad to Bee Volant and Mabel start racing again, it will put some life into the 28 ft. class. Volant is in tbe best possible condition, and is a credit alike to her owner, Mr. H. Denne, and also to her rigger, etc., James ivead, and given a good crew she should go well to the front to-day. Mabel is in very good order ; she is fitted with a weighted centreboard, whether it will be a success or not remains to be seen, but nothing venture nothing win. She will miss (he guiding hand of George Chiverton at the tiller, his place being taken by Percy Hallam, who it is hoped, will become a proficient helms man before the close of the season. Most of the 21 ft. yachts have been on the slip to paint and dry, so given a fair sea breeze there should be some good racing among them. Bar accidents Imp and Viking 'should make a ...

SILVER QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 9 December 1893
SILVER QUEEN. Dear Clipper, — Ever since the balance of power was upset at the hist meeiing there has been a growing feeling of disgust. Things are now much the same as when Mr. Featherstono was the presiding genius. Our only real check is gone. The miser able want of backbone in our board is more apparent than ever, although these wants snowed enough in Mr. Featherstone's time, when Mr. Taylor was the only one to keep the balance. We must have a change, and before long. Yours, Eaenebt.
