Cowlishaw's Action. [SEE SKETCH.] [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 11 August 1883

CowMshstw's Action, [SEB SKETCH.] On Tuesday next, I appear before Acting Chief Justice Harding to endeavour to ^ow^cause why I should not hand over £2000 to James Cotflishaw, as a salve to a supposed quantity pf wounded dignity. I say that J appear, because I am thd rea^ defendant, though James Cowlishaw has" ctibsen te cover my personality behind that of my publishers, Gordon and Gotch. James Cowlishaw sent a writ claiming £2000 daim ages. I found it necessary to a certain extent to force his hand, and bring the trial on as quickly as possible, because, if I am to be slaughtered, I prefer to meet my fate at once, rather than to be tortured by suspense. So, as I have said, I forced the running, and next Tuesday is the fatal day. To twelve jury men T am content to leave the issue. I cannot^ however, retrain from thinking how very one-side^ James Cowlishaw is in his paper-and he has six issues to niy one. Almost daily, his rag'in sults me-sometimes under the name of " Bobby " :Byrne,...

Hungerford — Clarke. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 11 August 1883

Hungerford-Clarkc* Clarke's brother has himself set out in search of any remains or traces of the brother whom Htinger ford left to die in the bush. My heart goes otit with him. He is not the man to leave any stone unturned in his mission of sorrow. . Hungerford has {for some iriscrutable reason) abstained froni givmgthepublic the satisfaction they desire. He has either been reticent, or has favoured us with broad generalities intended to bear the impress of a wounded dignity In fact, Hungerford's assertions have all been of a self-exculpatory character, even before anybody accused him of anything. Now, we shall at least have one solid earnest attempt to find out and make public whatever traces may be left of the man who has disappeared. That there should have been all this.mystery is. simply horrible. That the statements given by Hungerford at different times should be so inconsistent with each other provokes every reason ing man's doubt. That Hungerford should attempt to bully the...
