James Paton founded the Clipper in April 1893 as a radical,
socialist weekly newspaper through which he aimed to express his
ideals and review life in Tasmania at the turn of the century. In his time
as editor (which ran until the end of 1902), the Clipper included political
commentary, and reported on social and sporting events. Study of the
Clipper provides an insight into the lives and activities of Tasmanians,
particularly those of the late nineteenth century working class: This
bright, breezy paper was the first direct and successful appeal to the
Tasmanian working class and was an important step towards creating a
democratic self consciousness in the people.
