To christen a helpless Infant by such .1 name as TCbenezer is to labol him for life a wowser. When he grows up he will most probably have de veloped into a particularly virulent type of wowser—if he doesn't, -he'll discard Ebenezer, bury it deep down in the bowels of tho earth, and call himself plain 33111, or Jack, or any monnlker other than the accursed one which was, without ills consent thrust upon him !iwhen he didn't know where he are." It is with the first kind of Ebenezer —now deceased—that "Truth" pro poses to, deal, for his bad deeds live after him. He was certainly abotlt the most canting, crawling, crapulous hypocrite, even among hypocritical wowsers, on record. He made piety and-teaching in Sunday school a cloak under ' which he carried on con cupiscent capers, ever, however, see ing that...

Quinquennial Parliaments. OUR " STOP-AT-NOTHING " GOVERNMENT. POLITICAL NONENTITIES, NONDE SCRIPTS, AND NINCOMPOOPS COOLLY PROPOSE TO CONTINUE THEIR CONTRACT INDEFINITELY. (From Brisbane "Truth.") I With the complacent aid of its ox-like majority of hayseeds, political nonenti ties, nondescripts, and nincompoop* generally, the present Government of Queensland has fathered and mothered some alarming proposals, and appears determined to go baresark while yet there i* time. The liberties of the people have been frittered away by drastic licensing laws, as they apply to the hotel—the poor man'* club—and the Police Commissioner has been placed above Parliament and the People, and turned loose with all the braggadocio of which he is capable, in order that the right of free speech may be torn from the citizens. Innocent men have been kept in gaol after their innocence has been proved, scandalous practices in Government Departments have been HUSHED UP BY SECRET IXQUHUES, For breaking a poli...

Taylor, of Kent Cot tage, Morningside, appear?? to have become imbued .with ail idea of the ofllcacy of epistles addressed (a la Norton) in the first person to those who offend against the public liberties and conscience. In conformity with that idea. Mr. Taylor ha.M forwarded the following letter indited to Majah Cahill, and "Truth" hastens to give it the space to which it is entitled. "Dear Major,—In addressing this letter to you I do so with a feeling of great sympathy for you in your posi tion as police head of Queensland. Although this free and liberty-loving State offers some little scope for the exercise of your unique ideas of free dom, I quite' understand that you would feel much more at home in Russia, and that the baton is a poor substitute for the knout, when it comes to persuading the masses to view life from your standpoint.

Phonographs of the Police. &nbsp; MAGISTRATE (loquitor): The policeman has said so; I must obey ! An Elizabethan Judge, famous for his probity, said: "If the Lord God, whom I worship, brought in my Court an action against the Devil, whom I hate exceedingly, the Devil should have his due." A P.M. should ensample be of learning, law, and grace, &nbsp; Whose actions ne'er of prejudice or passion should show trace; His deeds should be impartial, and his sayings, wise and shrewd; By rogues he should be dreaded, and esteemed by all who're good. Like Caesar's wife "above suspicion," honest, fair, and just; His character and open mind should banish all distrust. He should not be a tyrant dread — folk trembling at his nod — But the embodiment of mercy, that great attribute of God; A man of independent mind, in judgment calm and sound. His knowledge should be practical, and special, and profound. And like that grand old English Judge — to duty stern and true — His motto be: "W...

AUSTRALIA'S MOST RE- MARKABLE CRIMINAL THE BRABOURNES & THE KNATCH- BULL-HUGESSENS. &nbsp; "WHAT'S IN THE BONE COMES OUT IN THE FLESH!" . To Mr. Norton. &nbsp; Dear Sir,—That unworthy scion of the House of Mersham Hatch, John Knatch- bull, of ignoble fame, was not the only instance of a Knatcbbull's connection with thing's Australian. The first Baron Brabourne, created as such in 1880, was Edward Knatchbull, grandson of Edward, the eighth baronet, who was the father of "Australia's most remarkable crimi- nal." This first Lord Brabourne died in 1909, and was succeeded by his son. In 1880, and for many years after- &nbsp; wards, New South Wales had as Agent General in London one Saul Samuel, of the Chosen Race, a race remarkable for its keen business instincts and its doubt of everything not visible. Yet this same Saul Samuel, who, by the way, was cre ated a baronet, was "had" in a deal with a Gentile, and that Gentile a Knatch- bull, save the mark, and...
