The Hungerford-Clarke Mystery. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 July 1883

The Hnngerford-CIarke Mystery. I feel forced to re-open this dark and distasteful mystery. I know that Hungerford has endeavoured to gag the Northern Press by threatening with libel any paper that dares to comment adversely upon his action.in connection with poor Walter Clarke. Whether or not he has succeeded in fi'ightening the Cooktown and Normanton Press/1 know not. I know this, that none of his gasconading shall prevent JFIGARO from having its say about this, as yet, unex plained tragedy. At the same time, I hope I am able to give Hungerford all the faiir play he deserves -more fair play, in fact, than he has given himself. I am led primarily to re-open this melancholy mystery, in consequence of a longand extraordinary paragraph concerning it thatT find in tHe Noymanton Herald. I havearll along contended that Mr. Booth, the . proprietor of that paper, does npt sufficiently acquaint himself with popular local sentiment; and certainly does not represent local public -opinion in th...

Revenue Sneaks [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 July 1883

Revenue Sneaks Henry Davidson, one of the stewards of the steamer Tinonee, has been fined £3 and costs or in default 7 days' imprisonment, ;for " unlawfully having sold a glass of whisky to a Revenue Officer/' he (H. David son) not being the holder of a license under the Publicans' Act of 1863. From the tenor of the evidence it would appear that the Eevenue Officer went on board and called for the. whisky, sat down and had some bread and cheese; chatted about the impend ing voyage, and asked what was the fare to Rock hampton. All these ruses made the unsuspecting Davidson fancy that the unknown Revenue Officer was a passenger by the Tinonee, and the whisky was supplied-without hesitation. I will pass over the meanness, .the crawling ! duplicity that was worse than out-and-out lying, and the sneaking conduct of the informer, who has been dignified with the name.of a Revenue Officer. I will not attempt to compare the twomen's positions, though I frankly own that I would a million time...

THE well-known firm of Peate& Harcouri introduced three years ago tlie Shipton Mallet Anglo-Bavarian Ale, and last year their order was for 5000 casks. It took the first prize at the Vienna Exhibition, the gold medal at Paris, the first prize at Sydney, and a first-class award at Melbourne. It is the mildest beer imported, and therefore especially adapted for hot cli mates. It is of uniform quality, is clean on the palate, has the true aroma of the finest hop, aud is entirely devoid of sedi ment. If the bottle be well shaken its brilliancy of color will not be clouded in the slightest degree. K. D, NEILSON sole I agent.-[ADVI.]

His preference for the exquisite Miss Pettytoes -had been flagrant. He had walked with her, bragged to her, and lent her his fleeciest wraps on cool days. His . . telescope was always at her service, and was usually to be seen fixed to one of her dark eyes. They had played practical jokes upon each other j she had put him througli a course of absurd attitudes, under the pretence of teaching him what she called the " Boston tip," and he had induced her to extend her promenade to the forecastle deck-where, as quick as thought, an old salt had chalked round her pretty feet a circle, a...

Jim Crow Journalism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 July 1883

Jim Crow Journalism. . IT is now the contention of Cowlishaw's paper, the Telegraph, that M'll wraith has signed a swindling contract with the London Syndicate who offer to con struct the Transcontinental on the'land-grant system. This syndicate is represented as about to make an un holy pile through carrying on the railway. It is going to coin money. Very well. In March, 1879, politics were not at their present white heat, and the Telegraph was more likely to accidentally write the truth than it is now. On March 7,1879, it expressed its sentiments on the Transcon tinental project thus: "Are railways from any quarter through the great fertile wilderness of the interior calculated to prove advantageous* directly or indirectly ? Jfothing is likely to be produced there for many years to come, except cattle and sheep;- and it is questionable whether the cnrrying necessary in a region eo occupied will suffice to pay the expenses of running trains;" I leave the reader to reconcile these i...

Queenland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JULY 21, 1883. Our Very Clever Boy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 July 1883

*'Fear God; Speak evil ofjnone; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATUKDAY, JULY 21, 1883. Our Yery Cfever Boy. We all know the very clever boy. He is the adored of his mother, the pride of his father, and the delight of the schoolmaster, who sees in his brilliant success the best possible advertisement of his sehool. When he comes home at the " breaking up " he brings with him a heap of prizes, and although his school-fellows despise him a little as a " serp/' or even regard him as a bit of a" sneak, they are, on the whole, rather proud of having such a prodigy* He is not exactly popular at school. Nobody calls him "old fellow," and there isn't one of the boys who would select him as a special friend, or confide his secrets to him ; so he moves among them quite isolated, and wrapped up in his own rather priggish self-conceit. And when he finally leaves, thOug;h there is a good deal of boasting among the other boys as to what he will do, and what reflected glory he w...
