Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1883. A Plain Yes or No. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 July 1883

*' Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to tlie Trutli; and never be done." BRISBANE : SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1883, A Plain Yes or No. THE political situation is developing itself. Probably there was never before such a unique position for the country to contemplate. A powerful Ministry has been defeated on a pet project, by a coalition as un expected as corrupt. Political honesty has been thrown to the four winds of heaven j political decency has been openly abandoned. Political tricksters have revelled in political infamy, and have made proud boast of their wantonness. The country has been defiled, the nation debauched. But even this is not all. The Triumphant Catspaw, who, by a fluke, was the astonished medium of up setting the M'Uwraith Ministry, had no sooner scored his win tban he lWanted to Rub it In. In this, he over-reached himself. He made it patent to the country that he had not a working majority at his beck arid call, though he could command sufficient solidity to block one ...

Hine Illæ Lacrymæ. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 July 1883

Hinc Illae lacrymae A man ?who signs himself "An Unfortunate Lodger," and whose MSS. is blotted with great tears, desires to vindicate himself from what he believes to be unjust aspersions on his hitherto spotlesb re putation. He has been accused by some of his fellow hash-consumers of shedding scalding tears as big as a water-melon. He says he did shed the aforesaid tears, but not for the reasons alleged. It was the presence of death that- broke his heart, and opened up the fountain of his great deep soul, so to speak. When he poured the glucose syrup on his pancakes, the stiff and cold remains of a large beetle and two cunning little twin cockroaches fell out into his plate, and lay. there hushed in an eternal repose. .He says Death is to him all-powerful. The King of Terrors "is the mighty sovereign before whom we must all bow, from the great Emperor down to the meanest slave; from the M.L.A., living in luxury at the Queensland club, to the humble lodger-all alike must some day c...

We are quite certain that this can be done, and is advisable.

SECOND TWENTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 July 1883

SECOND TWENTIES. July 28.~Bovers v. Brisbane Point 28.-Excelsior v. Grammar ScHool School RUGBY practice for the Sydney visit hascommenced. The roll up of the lovers of this game was not so great as might have been expected, considering the advertisement w;as an open one. However, those present managed to rally themselves into two teams sufficient to knock out an afternoon's fun, sides being chosen by the two club skippers Hickson and Lea. Why in the name of fortune will not some of those who cjill themselves our premier and senior footballers bestir themselves a little and do something in the preparing of the ground, and getting matches up to time. The general rule is this-" I'll drop in on the ground, say about three o'clock, tlie fellows don't want me, ba just in time for the game." Why, the other Saturday I saw a-never mind his club, stroll into the gardens about 15 past 3, quietly passed one poor weary (already) player hanging on to the old goal posts, and wanting assistance, b...

Our Worthy "Hosts." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 July 1883

Our Worfihv " Hosts." I believe honestly that a man who cannot or won't take an intoxicating drink is either a bigot or an incapable. I admit that the abuse of intoxicants is one of the most frightful curses of civilisation. But the abuse of anything is ntf set-off against its rightful v&e. If any man rises to tell me that intoxicants have no "rightful use," I either suspect him as a scoundrel) know him as a humbug, or reckon him a fool. They have no " rightful use" as intoxicants,: truly. Their rightful use" should always stop short of intoxication. I make this prelude in order fowarn ofij any Senseless anti-beer dry that maybe misrepresentingly raised. Here, I neither want to make a total abstinence lecture, nor a moderate all-rounder's defence. I wish only to note the fact that the Licensed Victuallers' Association of Queensland has organised a political platform, It has resolved to. support the present Ministry, " entirely in the interests of the trade.'* Their reasons h...
