A Natural History Item. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

A Natural History Item. A youngster, resident in Maryborough, and who has ' been in Queensland some three months only, rushed into the house of his employer the other evening, with his hair standing on end, and reported that a : wild beast had got into the back garden. Lights were procured, and the members of the household, ' armed with rifles, shot-guns, axes and waddies, sallied ' forth to interview the intruder. After diligent search, j the wild beast was discovered, perched-upon the top ; of the bush-house. It was a fiative bear. " Climb up, sonny, and hand him down/* said the master of the house to the new-chum boy. "It's I a native bear." : . • "He mum-mum-mighfc spring on me and cha-cha- : chaw me up?" whined the boy, with his teeth, chattering from fright. u Nonsense, lad, he's as harmless as a kitten," ■ was the answer. J After long persuasion, and being quite reassured, the lad climbed, and warily approached the foe. Suddenly he stopped, and seemed to be staring * intently...

The Millennium is Arranged For. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

The Millennium is Arranged For. Fincham, a Victorian M.L.A., has tabled a motion, in the Yictorian Parliament, expressive of the opinion that the time has arrived when a general effort should be made to incorporate the people of Great Britain and all the British colonies and depen dencies, in the interests of freedom am* mity, under one bond of perpetual friendship and mutual protec tion, and that, in order to secure the fullest strength and influence to the proposed organisation, the British people should he invited to solicit the earnest co-operation of their kith and km in the United States of America, for the establishment of a grand brotherhood and federation of the English-speaking race. Herein lies a vision of the millennium. Within its airy enfoldings, float possibilities unutterable. It aims at nothing short of an Anglo-Saxon millennium. If its indistinct void can ever be reduced to detailed and inter-dependent coherency, the world will know war no more. Peace will brood as...

A Balloon Voyage from Brisbane to Olympus. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

V*- — A Balloon Voyage from Brisbane to Olympus. I took ft stroll among' the hills surrounding Bris bane the other day, because I wanted to test for inygelf whether the measurement of heights recently made by Nehemiah Bartley was accurate or not; I guess my oneroid barometer must have been indis posed,forwhen I got half way up the tallest moun tain I could find-—a peak that I never lpaw before and don't ever expect to see again—the aneroid showed' me that 1 was a couple of thousand miles high, at the very least. The air had become so very rare that I couldn't respire any longer, and I fell off into unconsciousness just as. 1 was beings assisted into a balloon by a party of rescuers. \ When I came to,Iwas in a strange country, surrounded by a strange race of beings., They were simple-minded people and easily !ooled. I could see through them, because they were transparent. •* How did you get into our territory ?" they ask^d, in ancient Greek. " What territory is that? " I yapped, bein...

Bowen School of Arts Rumpus. TO THE EDITOR OF "FIGARO." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Boweii School of Arts Rumpus. the Editor of "Figabo." Sir*—" Fair Play," in your issue of September 12th, would have played more fairly* and adhered more strictly to the truth, if he had signed his name. But, if he thinks his identity is hidden under a nom de plume, he is mistaken. Whether Mr. Bourne or myself is the better man, is merely a matter of taste, and " Pair Play " is welcome to his opinion. What I want to point out, however, is, that although there are certainly 13 committeemen in the School of Arts, not more than half were present when Mr. Bourne showed his petty spite under the thin disguise of his " interest in the welfare of the Institution;" and, if " Fair Play " would only speak the truth, each and everyone of these gentlemen apoke up in my favor. Indeed; so strong was the feeling, that Mr. Bourne could find no seconder to his proposition, re cutting down the salary and abolishing the secretaryship; and it was only when I voluntarily resigned that the innovation was...

Making Poor by Misgovernment. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Making Poor by Misgoyernment. ; The most doleful accounts of depression, come from the Lower Warrego district. Trade is utterly para lysed there. Station improvements and all progressive movements are entirely suspended. Its lately-busy army of contractors is flitting from the district as soon as contracts, taken up in the past, are com pleted. The working men have, as a necessity, to follow suit. There is, in fact, a general skedaddle from the district, of all that is most vital to its pros perity. All selection is stopped, and money is only conspicuous by its scarcity. The CunnamuHa a paper which sympathetically feels the pulse of all that district, and records the true tone of its general condition, haB no hesitancy in pointing out the cause of all this mischief* It accuses the present Ministry of directly bringing these evils about. It laughs at the idea of the Griffith Government calling itself " The People'l'Ministry/* fend asfcs the working men thus driven out of the Lower Wa...

Smallpox in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Smallpox in Sydney. Three cases of -smallpox were discovered in Lower Bandwiclr, a suburb of Sydney, on September 23rd, the patients being three children of a man named Phillips, a trainer of horses. None of the patients had been vaccinated. They and five other inmates of the same dwelling were quarantined, as also were six racehorses. On September 26, a man named Frank Rose was found to be dangerously ill from Smallpox on board the steamer Gunga, which had arrived at Sydney from Melbourne. Ail people on board that vessel were sent to quarantine, and those who had been passengers were summoned to deliver themselves up to the authorities. On the same date, John O'Halloran, of Druitt-street, Sydney, was also found to be suffering from variola. Seven persons had to be quarantined. It is believed, however, that several persons who have been in contact with the areas of infection, are still at large. A vagrant, recently arrived at Sydney, was re garded as a suspicious case, and sent to q...

A Gaol Point of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

A Gaol Point of Law. On August 8th laBfc, I published in Figaro an article headed as above. That article dealt with the convietion of two men—James White alias M'Farlane, alias Dunk and Andrew Cowan, aftas Beechen—"who were convicted at Toowoomba, on July 14th last, be fore His Honor Chief Justice Lilfey; of obtaining goods and money under false pretences. I said that the two men; were properly found- guilty of that charge and richly deserved punishment. But I also took a technical gaol pointof law. JPunk ancl Cowan : (those are the names under which they are, knovra at the St. Helena Penal Establishment) were sentenced to 4years' penal servitude; and I pointed out that the highest sentence allowable by law for " false pre» fcences," was 3 years' penal servitude. Further, I told the public that I had heard that the warrants under which the two men were held in custody, set forth that they had been convicted of "forgery and uttering." I held, therefore, that both the sentence and the...

Still More of Sammy's Liberalism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Still More of Sammy's Liberalism. A month or two ago I suggested to everybody a way by which we could carry on Government with out any additional taxation, without, in fact,, as® much taxation as that under which, if we are to believe Dickson, we areall growing rich ! It was a very simple plan—the plan that suggests itself to every housewife when times get dull and her husband's incdme is reduced—simply to dispense with luxuries aiid cut down cut-downable expenses. I suggested, among other things, that we might manage to survive if His Excellency the Governor went home arid stayed there, if images of queens and explorers were dispensed with, arid if Members paid for their own sandwiches and.<e revivers/' I tried to insinuate that we weren't at all called upon to pension men just because they bad long drawn a good salary for doing nothing, and that official wages should be reduced to just what official work was worth. I suggested and there it ended. But in JParliamerit, th...

Shot by the Police. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

Shot by the Police. Last .week, I published the following telegram, received from a Thargomindah correspondent:— " Constable Sprague endeavoured: to arrest a man calling himself Rutherford, on the 14th inst. When asked to surrender, Rutherford presented a revolver at the constable's head, and escaped on foot. He lias not yet been recaptured. Rutherford is sup posed to have «£1000 m his possession." I have since received the following wire from the same source:— " Graham, alias Rutherford, has been shot at Caiworra, after a hand-to-hand engagement with some member or members of the New South Wales .police. Graham lies in a dying state/' The second telegram is dated from Thargomindah, 25th September, and is confirmed by a wire received by the Queensland Commissioner of Police, to. the effect that Robert Gordon Graham, against whom a -warrant had been issued, on a charge of having obtained .£300 by false pretences, had been shot by a New South Wales constable, in self-defence, on the P...

The Eastern Roumelian Revolution. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

, The Easteru Roamelian Reyolution. The Roumelian Revolution is still in. -the masked battery state. The Great Powers are all dodging be hind fences, and waiting to see at which end there is most devil. So that there is nothing much to report yet, except that there is going to be a Conference to settle the question. Turkey sent a diplomatic circular to the Great Powers, protesting against the acts of Prince Alexander of Bulgaria, and invoking their authority to uphold the Treaty of Berlin, which gives the Turkish Government power to suppress disorders within the provinces. Russia instantly began to be talked about , as dangerous, although she herself made peaceful protestations. Sixty thousand Russian troops were sent to Kars—a noted old town of Tureo-Russian trouble, and right under the elbow of the present row—and more Russian ^ forces are still being massed in Bessarabia/ Meanwhile, Turkish troops have been sent to Roumelia and Macedonia, though it was currently reported that Rus...

The Brisbane Boys' Grammar School. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 3 October 1885

The Brisbane Boys' Grammar School, Amongst a mass of correspondence which I have received from parents and guardians of boy-pupils at the Brisbane Grammar School, I select the following as taking fair exception to some of the points pro minently pressed forward in my previous articles, which seem to have caused no little stir in the metro politan community:— . "Dear Figabo,—As the parent of a numerous, though none too gifted progeny, I can sympathise ■with your temperate exposure of dFrammar School grievances, in the possession of which the big Bris bane institution is but' typical of all the rest. But are you sure that you are rightly apportioning the blame? Or that you are on the right track for | curing the abuses pointed at, when you hint that j more active interference in the management of the | School, on the part of the Trustees, would be desir- j able ? You remember the opinion expressed by a ! greater statesman than we can boast—Sir Robert Peel, that government by Boards is...
