  • 11 May 1904, HOURS OF WAITRESSES
    At the District Courts yesterday C. J. H. Nissen, a restaurant-keeper was prosecuted for working a waitress 72.5 hours per week, and was fined. One of the justices, however, expressed an unfavorable opinion of the Factories Act, but both Sir Samuel Gillott and Mr. Harrison Ord consider that the department was fully justified in entering a prosecution. Sir Samuel Gillott said that 60 hours a week was in all conscience long enough for a waitress to work. The Act, he claimed, was being temperamentally administered, but a prosecution was the only way when the Act was ignored to enforce compliance. Mr. Harrison Ord pointed out that it was only in cases where a palpable attempt to evade the Act had been made that prosecutions were ordered. On other occasions an explanation was first sought from the employers, and when given were in a large percentage of cases accepted.56
  • 15 Sep 1910, ALLEGED BREACH OF TRUST. LAW CASE OVER A WILL. Melbourne, September 14.
    The hearing of an action, in which the trustees of a will were charged with breach of trust in the administration of the affairs of an estate, was begun in the Banco Court to-day before Mr. Justice a'Beckett. The plaintiffs were Kensa Greta Maria Grunden and other infant children of Knut Adolph Grunden, deceased, of Elizabeth-street, oyster saloon-keeper, and the defendants were Carl Johan Nissen, of the Exchange Hotel, William-street, and Wilhelm Pallin, of Elizabeth-street, who were sued as trustees of the will, and the name of August Sheldon had subsequently been added. The plaintiffs claimed that as beneficiaries under the will the defendants had retained £220 for commission out of the estate, had expended £193 in alleged improvements on certain real estate at Glenbrook; had paid out money belonging to the trust estate to the defendant Pallin for work alleged to have been done and for expenses incurred by him and for gratuity to him; had displayed negligence and mismanaged the business; had failed to keep proper accounts, and had improperly invested money on in sufficient security.
    The defence was a denial of all the material allegations.
    In opening the case Mr. Weigall said the profits of the business had previously amounted to £1.000 a year, but latterly they had greatly decreased. Nissen had been appointed manager at a salary of £4 10/ per week, and the plaintiffs claimed that the expenditure had greatly increased.
    His Honor—Do you menn that there has been too great an expenditure in anchovy sauce?
    Mr Weigall referred the court to the items of $60? for a tombstone over the testator's grave, and to £97 for funeral expenses. Both these items were alleged to be excessive.
    His Honor—What do you want the court to do?
    Mr. Weigall—We request that the present trustees be asked to resign; that new trustees be appointed; that the defendants immediately pay £800 or £900, which we say has been improperly taken out of the trust estate, and that accounts be taken. His Honor—Various breaches are charged, against them?
    Mr. Weigall—Pallin credited himself with £110 commission, and meals for the staff were purchased from Nissen's hotel.
    His Honor—Did you expect the staff to live on oysters alone? (Laughter.)
    Mr. Weigall said it was also charged that Pallin gave himself a Christmas box.
    His Honor—Not more than once a year I hope. (Laughter.)
    Mr. Duffy (for the defendants)—We are quite willing to show accounts. The estate at the time of the testator's death was sworn at £2,156, and it is now worth £3,856.
    Mr. Weigall—Why did you not say so before?
    Mr. Duffy—I knew I had a surprise for my friend, but I could not interrupt him whilst he was reciting a three-volume sensational novel. (Laughter.)
    Mr Weigall—What was the profit made last year?
    Mr. Duffy—£1.131.
    Efforts to settle the action having failed, Mr. Weigall proceeded to hand in a number of documents to the court.
    The case stands partly heard.57
  • 12 Dec 1914, Narcissa's bay colt foal, by Mazagan (imp.), owned by Mr C. J. H. Nissen, died a few days ago at Blackwood Park.58
  • 21 Jan 1916, Mr. C. J. H. Nissen appears to have a smart filly in Lady Narcissa, which won last Saturday's two-year-old event at Caulfield. Lady Narcissa is the first of Narcissa's foals. Mr. Nissen had bad luck with the subsequent progeny of the Havoc mare. Her second foal was a colt by Mazagan, and therefore a full brother to Lady Narcissa, but it died on the day that Mr. Nissen returned from a trip round the world, in 1914. In October last Narcissa produced twin foals, a colt and a filly to The Scribe, but they lived for only a few days. Narcissa has been mated with Bobadil this season. An exchange adds that Mr. Nissen's connection with the turf as an owner dates back to the early nineties. He had the management of Lord Charles Scott, when that horse won the Standish Handicap.59
  • 22 Jun 1917, Mr. C. J. H. Nissen's mare Narcissa, by Havoc—Flower Girl, broke her off fetlock at Blackwood Park a few days ago, and was destroyed.60
  • 31 Jan 1918, After a splendid finish, Lady Narcissa defeated the favourite, Sauci, by half-a-head in the Park Handicap at Sandown. It was up to Lady Narcissa to score a win, as she invariably runs a good race, but had not scored for exactly two years to the day. Lady Narcissa was bred by her owner, Mr. C. J. H. Nissen, a Melbourne boniface, who always has a horse in training. J. Lang, who prepared Lady Narcissa, is a son of the old-time mentor, Billy Lang. All going well, Lady Narcissa is a certain starter in the Australian Cup.61
  • 28 Oct 1922, THE TURF. Lady Narissa, the 1919 Wagga Cup winner, owned by Mr C. J. L Nissen, Melbourne, has produced a colt foal to Red Dennis.62
  • 12 Mar 1924, Mr. C. J. H. Nissen leaves, for a trip to Europe on March 22. Mr. Nissen is the owner of the blood mare Lady Narcissa and the racehorses Black Narcissa and Brown Narcissa.63

  • 26 Feb 1931, Back from Europe.
    Homeward bound after a trip to Europe, Mr. C. J. H. Nissen, a Victorian racehorse owner, reached Sydney on the Mirraboolta to-day. Mr. Nissen was not greatly impressed by the racing he saw abroad, but had some interesting comments to make on the sport in Sweden. The totalisator was introduced to that country in recent years, but the Swedes are not a gambling race, and investments of 2s or 2s 6d satisfy most people. Stakes are small, and there are no bookmakers.66
