The Trigger. SOUTHPORT AT CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

The Trigger. SOUTHPOBT AT CHRISTMAS. Amongst the events that characterized this Christmas gathering at Southport was a pigeon-shooting match under the auspices of the Southport G-un Club, "which took place on Saturday, 30th December, at Labrador, on a va cant spot adjoining Mr. Watson's cottagcs. The matches were open to all comers, and were for sweepstakes of 10s. each, the numbers averaging about ten guns. A liberal supply of pigeons were procured by Mr. Tulk, and there was plenty of " Dutch "powder" on the ground to steady the nerves when required. Tho chief winners were Messrs. Morris, Cannan, Swatkin . Longman, Gooding, and Muir, who took respectively some first and others second money. The shooting was very good, the betting being odds on the guns. The sportsmen and their friends adjourned to an excellent lunch at the Labrador Hotel, and the festive season was enlivened by reports of that agreeable artillery, the free firing of champagne corks. The viands brought into requisit...

A Peep at the Shows. "I'll mark the play."—Hamlet, Act iv., Sc. 2. THE MASTODON MINSTRELS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

A Peep at tlie Shows. "I '11 mark the play."-Hamlet, Act iv,, Sc. 2. THE MASTODON MINSTBELS, FIGARO doesn't intend bespattering each company that arrives in Brisbane with stereotyped praise; yet he will always feel pleased when he has anything plea sant to say. He at present regrets his inability to com pliment the Minstrels performing: in the Theatre Royal. If numbers could do it, they certainly should be all there ; but they are not. The fact is, that if their sum were divided by two, the better half would afford much more enjoyment than the lot. They have Amongst them the component parts of an excellent musical en tertainment; but instead of judiciously utilising those materials which would afford satisfaction to a really musical community, they prefer blackening the stage from "prompt" to "0.3?." and rehearsing gags of hoary antiquity. The Americans are justly celebrated for the raciness of their humour; but those in the Boyal just now gee^as if they regarded their audiences j a...

THE TRANSCONTINENTAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

THE TRANSCONTINENTAL. ON the 22nd of last December Sir Arthur Kennedy, as Governor of the Colony, and Mr, Henry Kirnber, as Attorney for the Transcon tinental Syndicate, signed a paper of the most importance to Queonslanders. This paper is a " provisional agreement" between the two contracting parties for the construction of the much talked of railway to the Gulf It will be remembered that the scheme of building this great trunk line across our share of the continent was first made public in the columns of the Queemlandcr and Courier* Mr. Grealey Lukin, who was then editor of those journals, thought that Port Darwin must be the port to which the line should extend, and fitted out an expedition under Mr. Ernest Favenc to explore and report upon the proposed route. Queens land people, however, were determined to (keep both ends of the line within their own polony, and Captain Pennefather having reportedwell of the road-stead and aspect jof Point Parker, that lonely spot was adopted ar...

Fistiania. "Tell us the manner of the wrestling." —As you like it. Act i., scene 2. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

Fistiania. " Tell us the manner of the wrestling." -As you like it. Act i.f Bcene 2. AN excellent encounter with the gloves was witnessed ? in Dowridge's Athletic Hall last Monday night by about seventy patrons of the noble art. The match was for £5 aside, with the takings at the door, and the competitors were Davis and Thorne, two plucky and well-built natives of Dublin, but, until recently, residents of. Sydney. Thome is an inch or so taller than Davis, and is an all-round well-made man, though scarcely so Compact as his less lengthy opponent, who was also in better condition, having been during some time under the treatment of that well-known trainer, "The Black Diamond." Shortly after eight o'clock the gladiators stepped inside the ropes, and were briefly introduced to the spectators by the referee as experts from whom one of the best " set to's " ever seen in Brisbane might safely be expected. He an nounced that the match would be foug;ht under the Marquis of Queensberry's rule...

THE COMING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

THE COMING MITCH. Dubiitg the forthcoming month all club engagements are to be suspended, and our players are determined to do their level best to fit themselves to meet our English visitors. The preliminary selection of thirty has been made, and the committee will hare an anxious and responsible job in deciding which twelve are to be left out. Figaro will say his say on this later on,meanwhile, he would hint, in the most delicate way in the world, as Mariyatt' s Boatswain would say, that there are some things no fellow can understand about the selection 0f the thirty. For instance what have Irnng, Cecil, Donaidse®, and Gibson done to merit their exclusion; and why are Parker, and Cotham, left out? The former has scored very fairly this season, and is a reliable player. The latter is perhaps pur best field, and ftyaro thinks that our team will have considerably fielding to do. Moreover, where are the contingent of Ipswich, Toowoomba, and Warwick players. Surely Ramsey, Kesbitt, and ...

MONDAY'S CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

MONDAY'S CRICKET. THE Pack was occupied by the Ipswich West End and a combined team stronger than any one club could tarn out. As was expected the Athenians were de feated by an innings and seventy. For the Brisbane team Cowan 48, Gotham 43, Banes 19, Nettle 12, were the double figures. JTor the West End W. Martin 28, W. Ginnl3. Weartte bowledj bat did not come off k> well as J. Petrie, who got nine wickets. At Petrie Terrace about two hundred inhabitants had the felicitj of teeing their local team twice victori ous orer the hitherto invincible second Bowen Hills. The'first match was won by an innings. The second by 17 runs. Unless the worthy Duncan can repress the enthusiasm of his young friends of the district he will find teams shy of his ground. On the Union ground a mixed team of the U, A.C. played eleven all comers, Alberts, Carltons, and Leichhardts, and defeated them by 10 wickets, making 102 to 41 and 61, A. H. White made 33 run out, and Armstrong, M. Shield, Brookes,1 P...

IS IT TO BE WAR? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

IS IT TO BE WAR ? THESE is a scent of slaughter in the air. The eagles are gathered together, as though to the summons of an expected carcase. History abounds in such warnings. Russia totters on the brink of a fearfulchange, the extent of which cannot yet be foreseen. Turkey is shaken to its core, the people and the army both plot ting against the Sultan, who is charged with betraying the ancient Moslem faith. Austria is stretching a long and longing arm towards Constantinople. Germany is a prey to party quarrels, ruled more by force of arms than according to law, and the poor old Emperor is set up, very much against his will, as a virtual despot. Italy is aglow with subdued wrath at France meddling with Tunis, which Italy had long looked upon as a morsel for herself. France, on the other hand, is but awaiting the chance of taking a bitter revenge on her Ger man neighbours by the re-conquest of her lost provinces, Alsatia and Lorraine. England is deep in the mazes of the Irish quest...

Queensland Figaro " Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 6,1883. A LONE HAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

(t Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth j and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 6,1883. A LONE HAND. THIS is a new venture, gentle public. A genuine attempt to furnish what has often been promised-an honest newspaper. It will present vou from week to week something which will be as near to the naked truth as a modest journal dare attempt in an eminently respectable and sensitive community, and one which maintains a law expressly forbidding the exhibition. This much at least will be guaran teed : whatever blunders We may make, or what ever prejudices may obscure our vision, they will be our own, and not made or assumed to serve the ends of any person, party, or clique. The " influential" citizen who veils his wrong doing under the cloak of decorous respecta bility, who purchases the connivance of society bjr his lavish hospitality, and of the church with his ready cheque-book, will get no more con sideration from us than the most commonplace sinner who does ^vil...

SATURDAY'S CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

SATURDAY'S CBICKET. THE only first eleven match was that in the Gtaxdens -Alberts verms Unions for the Prentice Cup* The scores stood, Alberts first innings 14 runs ahead, second innings four for sixty-two with Dixon not out 27. Remembering the total of 60 for two innings made by the Unions in their Stanley match it looked a soft thing for the senior club, especially when it became known that the curly bowler was too ill to play. But you never know what may happen in cricket. The Union skipper which put himself on to bowl and got two wickets first over. Nobody knew he could bowl: it was an artful surprise; most folks, how ever, don't know it yet. However, he was successful. Toller bagged two more pretty easily, and the Albert innings terminated (Shield being sick and Street down too late), total 74 runs. The Unions commenced with the Captain and Bertie. They were not separated till 50 was made, and the requisite number of runs were hit off with the loss of four wickets. White played...

CRICKET ON THE CHEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 January 1883

CBICITKT OK THE CHKAP. An. the recent English Elevens which visited Australia have been most favourably impressed with the general prowess in the noble game, and the liuge facilities afforded for -playing it. A new sensation awaits Ivo Bligh and his men when thej arrive here. They will find a city where a deal of cricket is played, and none of it beyond the second eleven form of the sister colonies. The best batting average last season was fourteen runs. A fair score for a first-class team is sixty or seventy. A total of two hundred in one innings has not been recorded for years. A three figure individual score is as rare as a four-leaved shamrock. Eighteen innings have been played for the Prentice Cup on our best ground, and not one has leached a hundred. They will find our grounds faith, that is wrongs-they won't find them-for only one club has a ground. The Park is everyone's to play on, but nobody's to look after. Matches played after wet weather leave large holes in the badly d...
