OPEN THE DOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883
OPEN THE DOOR. AT the recent stormy meeting of the Hospital Com mittee, Dr. O'Boherty moved a resolution, which was lost upon division, that the Press Reporters should be excluded. It is just possible that the Doctor may have desired that the public should merely be kept ignorant of the "heavy wash" that was going onj for it can hardly be satisfactory to any one interested in the Hospital that such a large batch of dirty linen should have accumulated since the last cleaning up. Bat the Hospital is a public institution; and any discussion upon the merits of its management must be public too. The Press is the medium that conveys the rights and wrongs of such disputes to the public understanding. There is too much inclination among public "bodies to meet in private. Such attempts are foolish. They shake public confidence, and savour of some " hole and corner " influences. They may be prompted by the best motivea; but where privacy is desired these motives must be clearly made known; wh...
ZANCO. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883
ZANCO. I am old and my back 's growing hollow, My grey hairs are now nearly white; No moire am I destined to follow Nor lead through the thick of the fight. And though I am old, stiff, and "gummy," And have lost all the best of my pace, The horse at one time was a rummy, Good one that I couldn't out-race. I look back with pleasant reflection, Though mem'ry grows dim I'm afraid: When W&rwick scarce knew free selection, ^ At my dam's side, I gambolled and played And still as a yearling I wandered Unknown to the cities or towns,, While my time .was pleasantly squandered, On the beautiful grass of the Downs. But this was tpo good to last long$i Good-bye, to my freedom, goo4*byfe, And as I began to wax stronger; To teach me to race they did try;4 Still though I felt sure there were few, that In Queensland could show me the wa&: 'Twas not until May '72, that ?

"Who goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 January 1883
Who goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing*" When a man goes to his bank manager to arrange ' for an overdraft 01* advance in some form, and fails to get-it, he generally leaves the premises with a con viction that the manager is a fool, a.ndjth$ bank going to the dogs. He may be right or lie ihay not*. His position may be a perfectly sound one, his security good, and the use to which he intends to put the money quite legitimate ; or he may be unconsciously taking a straight road to bankruptcy. But the point which will remain clear to him after he hasgone back to his office, kicked up a row with his head clerk, i " seen a friend " at his club, quarrelled with his wife, j and otherwise rid himself of his bad humour will be . this '-That a lender buttons or unbuttons his breeches pocket solely in accordance with his own personal fancy, and is very little influenced by the opinion that a borrower may have of his own solvency. Now in Australia we are borrowing merrily. The security we offer ...

THE PLANTERS AND THE ANTICOOLIE LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 January 1883
THE PLANTERS AND THE ANTI COOLIE LEAGUE. THERE iB still some trouble brewing orer those wretched Cingalese. It will be remembered that the Anti-Coolie League first o£ all eiidearoured to prevent the darkies from landing ; and then induced a large number of them to break their agreements. All who did leave their employ were feasted by the irrational leaguers, ana boarded and lodged at the Queen's, Hotel in Bundaberg. Such members of the League as made the demonstration against the landing will be proceeded against by the Associated Planters for inciting Riot, Rout, and unlawful Assemblage. The Town-Crier who assisted the agitation by ringing the bell, is also to be proceeded against for inciting to unlawful assemblage. The more prominent of the leaguers who induced the Cingalese to break their agreements will also be prosecuted ; the proof of such inducements being furnishied by the published speeches of three fiery orators. Action will also be taken against the landlord of the Queen...
To the Sporting Editor of Figaro. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 January 1883
To the Sporting Editor of Figaro. DEAB Sie,-As your paper appears to be the only one in Brisbane which gives the Turf the benefit of im partial criticism, you will perhaps spare me space to say a few words in defence of that apparently much maligned body, the Q.T.G.' Week after week ; "Pegasus," the sporting writer of the Queentlander, seemsto devote all the space that he can spare from the paste and scissor business towards aspersing the committee of management, who have evidently had the misfortune at some time or another to tread rather hard on one of his corns. But what I wish to point out is, firstly, how little the Q.T.C. merit his opprobrium, and secondly, how unfit he is to lay down the law on sporting matters. !Now about the handicapping" (and wei*e "Pegasus" an ill used horse-owner, he could not have been raore.bitter on this head). Most sporting writers when criticising a handicap point out on previous ruiming where mistakes.are made, this " P." appears unable to do, but ...
Our Civil Service. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 January 1883
Our Civil Service. IT HAS long been a matter of extreme surprise to us that the abuses of the Queensland Civil Service are not exposed by our leading journals. Perhaps their reticence arises from a sense of vain efforts put forth in the remote past; still we think the press loses much of its influence for good, when its gruardians display any apathy for giappling with the abuses of State Departments, hence our determination not to join the van of quietude which appears to have degen erated to a normal condition,. The system of advance ment by means of political influence loses little, if any* of its baneful powers "as time rolls on, though much j has been done in the direction of reform by the present administration, who, to a great extent, have shaken off the shackles which trammelled their predecessors from all time, by exercising a wise discretion in selecting Candidates for promotion. Yet much remains to be done before the evil still partly existing will have been permanently er...

'1 « I MET a friend last week who had just returned from Blackall, having been present at the first meeting of the Blackall Turf club; and they seem to have had a very good meeting and a high old time of it alto gether. Blackall may certainly claim to be the racing metropolis of the far west, and not only is there always plenty of money forthcoming for the sport, but the fun is also fast and furious, and i|ey eta bgr no means be accused of taking their pleasures sadly. For their three days' meeting they paid away about £1,000 at the settling, avid after that, in honour of the visitors, Messrs. (Griffith and Dickson, they had a fourth day on which about £70 were run for. The principal event on this day was called the Opposition Handicap, and was won by Darkie, the same horse ...

We'd like to do without 'em; It's such an awful bore To have to study politics, And a hundred subjects more. But we cannot do without 'em In this uproarious age.
