The Clipper was a weekly labor-orientated newspaper published in Hobart, Tasmania, from 8 April 1893 until 25 December 1909,[1] before its merger with the Daily Post in 1910.[2][3]


Its first editor was James Paton, a Christian socialist. Walter Alan Woods became editor and part owner in 1903, until the newspaper merged with the Daily Post in 1910.[4]
