Germany has tried to sweeten Great Britian arid has to an extent succeeded. Great Britian Iras been officially represented as being willing that a European Conference should settled the question; similarly as the Congo dispute was settled, aid the commercial interests of' Great ^ Britian are certainly • more closely allied with a German jurisdiction Over the Carolines, than with the Spanish.

British New Guinea. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

British New Guinea. The Imperial Government has expressed its will ingness to proclaim Queen Victoria's sovereignty over British New Guinea, and to contribute to that territory a suitable ship, costing not less than <£18,000. This offer seemd to have been made sub* ject to the condition that Australia consents to pay .£15,000 per annum for the Government of New Guinea. The Queensland Parliament has already 1 passed an Act which secures the payment of this colony's proportion of the cost, and, Victoria will follow suit, limiting/" however, its guarantee to a* brief period, with a view to bringing pressure to bear on Gy^'at; pr^tain, so that the mother country shall fb^ar its dup share of the new burden. New SpurnT^aie^s also demurring on sithilar grounds. The reason for this is not that the Australian Colo nies object to pay the cost of New Guinea annexa tion, but because they feel disgusted at the wretched half-heartedness of the late Gladstone Ministry, which fooled them...

FIFTH LESSON. Advice to a Boundary Rider. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

Fifth. Lesson. Advice to a Boundary Rider. (Continued.) Though your duties are simple, you may find them tedious, therefore you should never go out without a novel in the bosom of your shirt. When you find tfae sun getting unpleasantly hot, look for a shady tree, which should not be close to the fence, and lie down under it, having hung your hor^e; iipi (Jn{ this manner, you will find time pass pleasantly, enough. When you want la change, take out d pack of cards, instead of a novel, arid play euchre .against an imaginary opponent. Also practise the art . of stack- j ing the cards. "Tou will find this accomplishment! useful when playing at poker hereafter. While going round your fence, should you find a lamb on one side and its mother on the other^ you should carefully brush up the place where the animal ,got through. This will pre vent any more lambs from leaving their mothers, which is a reprehensible habit for them to get into. The straying one has not the 'seise' to find the hol...
