Read this, Sammy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 July 1883

            Read this, Sammy.   HAS the reader ever been to Maytown" If he has,   he will understand the force of any Anti-Chinese complaints emanating from that quarter. If there is any town in Australia which acts as the focal   point of Chinese organisations, it is Maytown. The Sydney Chinese merchants, some of whom have lately distinguished themselves by going insolvent, for a few thousands, are merely business vassals of   some of the Maytown Pigtails, says the Palmer Chronicle . Although the application of the measure intro- duced by Mr. F. A. Cooper for excluding the Chinese from working as miners on the gold and tin fields, may be regarded on the Palmer as like "locking, the,   stable door after the horse is stolen," yet its general effect will be beneficial to the European population and to the real stability and progress of the colo...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 4 August 1883

^6 tii© El©ctors of North Brisbane. ;, ENTLEMEN,-Pariiament having been dis vJ solved upon the defeat of the M'Hwraifch Government on their Land Grant Railway policy, I have the honour to offer myself again as a candidate for your suffrages. The House now to be elected will, in ai*l pro bability, have to pronounce de&uite decisions on questions of the gravest importance, upon which the future history of the colony will, iu a great measure, depend. I. earnestly hope, therefore, that in every electorate minor differ ences and personal animosities will be put out of sight, and that the electors will unite to secure the return of men whose support of Liberal principals can be thoroughly relied on. The last Parliament existed too long. In the session of 1832 the Government found them selves uuable to command a majority upon what they put forward as a vital part of their policy. Their conduct in practically depriving the colony of the advantage of any parliamen tary deliberations ...

To the Electors of Fortitude Valley. ' p ENTLEMEN -In reply to the flat . VJT tering requisition presented to me, T feel that I would be failing in my duty as a public man if I did not accede to it. The question at present at issue be tween the two parties is that of stagna tion or progress j my sympathies and actions have been in the latter direction. With respect to the Transcontinental Bail way, the provisional agreement dealing therewith has been rejected by Parliament, and therefore ceases to exist. I would say, however, that the Government have no intention of aban doning the principle of constructing the railways, were practicable, by means of land grants, on terms and conditions acceptable to Parliament. Being of opinion that our borrowing power? will be taxed to the uttermost to construct railways in those places and districts where the land is already alienated, and where the land grant principle could not apply. With regard to the question of Coolie labor, I maintain that...

Cross Co-operatives. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 4 August 1883

Ci!DSS Co-operatives. THERE is a .very undesirable state of things in the institution known as the Civil Service Co-operative Company/Limited, which has stores in Edward-street, Brisbane. At the half-yearly meeting, held on Monday evening, some 30 shareholders w,ere present j yet, on a most important motion, 202 votes were recorded. A balance-sheet gave figures which look very pretty, but which only accountants can properly understand. One item was-pretty clear, and that was that the profit for the half-year only amounted to £52 Is. Another was that the book debts were ,£1588 lis. An irregular fact was that the auditors, Robert H. Mills and G. C. Horstmann, after certifying that the books, accounts, and vpuchers agreed with the balance-sheet presented, made tiiis staf^ttwnt*-4fWe have, however, had no opportunity of^. ver^j^ jbse 'Cash on hand' or the'stock* sheetsi whicn latter, both as to quantity and price, have been accepted on the certificate of the Chairman/' The directors r6»...

THE MULGRAVE RACING CLUB ANNUAL MEETING. FIRST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 4 August 1883

THE MULGRAVE RACING CLUB ANNUAL MEETING. FIRST DAY. " . . . WHENtlfe M-B.C. decided on holding their annual meeting at Bundaberg midway between the Rockhampton and Mary borough fixtures they made an alteration in the right direction,' and one that will prove very much to the advantage of their club, for instead of the races being, as heretofore, confined to local horses, they catch the horses that are travelling from other parts, and thereby contribute greatly to the interest taken by the general public in the races. Beautiful weather caused a number to wend their way to the course on Wednesday morning, and for a country meeting the attendance was very creditable. The course is situs ted about two miles from the town, and it is by no means a bad one, though it is of course at the present time in a very hard state. They have a neat little grand stand with enclosure, and saddling paddock well fenced in, but as yet no sheds for race-horsesj so that in wet or very hot weather it must be...

? ? William JCeEfel*. ^ THIS is from the Cooktown Courier: "Prom the Hansard we obtain a 'fact,' which indeed has sttiV prised thewrifcer. We refer-to the Ipswich dismissals. The ' Hon. P. Perkins stated in the Assembly that Mr. Keltett was the ehuif actor in the'affair-that was, the wholesale discharge of Workmen from theIpswich workshops. W<e remember the day those men came out. We also remember: that the Hon. J. M. Macrosssn-was well talked about at the time, as Were also Messrs. J. Malbon Thompson and P. O'Sullivan in connection ipth these dismissals. The mention of Mr. Kellett's name as the chief actor brings to inind a very stormy reception William Kellett deceived in the Ipswich School of Arts when he tried to address a political meeting.
