A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?" [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

A Peep at the Sliows. You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it ?"• The Spanish Student. George Carey and his company opened at the Academy of Music last Saturday with the comedy, " Peril/' which appears to be an adaptation of " Impulse/' or something very like it. Carey, of course, sustains the principal character, the large hearted, the Hon. Augustus Cholmondeley, and keeps his audience in a perpetual grin. He was well assisted by Miss Marie Wilton and Miss May Hill. " Peril" was followed by a comedietta, entitled " Somebody Else/' On Thursday, " Artful Cards " was produced.

ROUNDABOUT [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

ROUNSfeBOUT The recent Cook election was the quietest ever known up North. Up at the 22-miles camp of the Cooktown line, the navvies were expected to turn up with a rush, and the Government sent along Senior Constable Geraghty, Constable Finlaysoii atfd a troop of black police. The noble guardians of the peace found that their efforts had to be directed to keeping in order the deputy returning officer and the two scrutineers. Between 9 and 10 o'clock, 1 man voted j Before 11, a second strolled up; between 11 and 12 there was a dead lull, but between 1 and 2 there came a heavy rush of two. The rest of the afternoon was wasted, thus bringing the grand total up to 4. The London Times, of September 20th, publishes a letter from the Mayor of Townsyille, advocating the separation of North Queensland. , • ^ Theee was a bank scare up at Thursday Island the othe* day. The police were yelled for, and the gallant bank officials, armed to the teeth with a carving-knife, a corkscrew, and a broom...

Pen and Pencil Sketches. Boyd Dunlop Morehead. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Fen and Pencil Sketches. Boyd Dunlop Morehead. It> is understood (hat Boyd Dunlop Morehead, the hon. and witty Member for Balonne, intends shortly to take a trip to Europe. Even the temporary absence of the formidable geurilla politician will create a void in political circles here, and his absence will be. much felt. Boyd Dunlop Morehead is the acknowledged satirist and humorist of Parliament. His speeches are never dull. Be the subject never so serious, Morehead can be reckoned upon for a lively and playful speech. It is the fashion amongst $ certain class of critics, to represent More bead's ^oratorical scintillations as being flippant and shallow. Nothing can be further from the, real truth; Flippant they are, frequently enough, but they are never shallow. It is not in the nature of Boyd Duiilop Morehead to be shallow in anything. He is undoubtedly gifted, with the divine spark of genius. HiB genufe Wm an eccentric twist, but it is there. The circumstances of his vocation lim...

Dingoes Hunting Marsupials. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Dingoes Hunting Marsupials. Dear Figaro,—Would you kindly grant me space in your paper to say a few; words in favor of the much despised Dingo. I read in your issue of Sep tember 5th, a letter from W. S. (Uebo), which, I think, is rather more far-fetched than the previous article referred to by him. There is no doubt that they do a great deal of harm on sheep-stations, but such is not the case on cattle stations. The number of calves they kill is only an iota compared with the number of marsupials they kill. Of course there are exceptions to every rule. On some stations, you will hear of dingoes killing calves wholesale; but, on making enquiries, you will find that these calf-killers are not the true-bred dingoes, but a cross between the dingo and some tame dogs. Any person that has watched the habits of the dingo must know that they are great cowards, and will never kill a calf as long as it is with its mother. I could give W. S. hundreds of instances where I have seen dingoes I ch...

Another Saying Gone Wrong. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Another Saying Gone Wrong. Peacefully slumbering lay Jimmy Jones, Camped by the creek> in blissful repose. Deep was his sleep, one could tell by the ; :es In regular time which came from his nose. The sun was now up, all nature was waking, Sheep were now moving about on the plains j Lizards and spiders their beds were forsaking, Peacefully slumbering Jimmy remains. Birds were now leaving their nests on the trees* Shrieking in chorus and welcoming day; Flies buzzed around him, and even the freeze Fanned Jimmy's face as he slumbering layt O'er him a blanket was carelessly thrown, And as a pillow his saddle was placed, Down at the foot of his bed, it was shown, That Jimmy's feet still in boots were encased There had he kicked off the blanket, in dreams,' Dreams of the spirited horse he had ridden* Brightly the sun was now shedding his beams . Down on one arm which was only half hidden^ Suddenly Jimmy awoke with a start, Looked all around him and gazed at the sun, Swiftly he jumped f...

Ministerial Finance. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Ministerial Finance, The Treasury Returns for the last quarter are out, arid show an increase in revenue as compared with with the same quarter of 1884, of .£66,000. But the increase in expenditure, exclusive of interest, is J677,000, or, with increase of interest for the quarter added,\£97,000. That is the way to make the money go. A short life and a merry one. for Sam and .his colleagues. M'llwraith's surplus has enabled them to carry on so far. a,nd the deficit will take a year or two to become entirely unmanageable, by which time our credit, too, will be gone. Then they will retire and leave it to their opponents to restore the revenue and build up the credit of the colony, which will be;# pretty hard job with all the land locked up in the hands of the squatters, only to fee resumed on payment of compensation, and nb possibility;of borrowing to carry on public works. However, the Ministerial land jobbers wilt have made their pile and will be able to clear out, so it won't matter...

Government by Syndicate [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

Government by Syndicate Is all the rage in Queensland just now. . We have a Parliament in which a commission of squatting and land jobbing Ministers have settled the land question to their own entire satisfaction, supported by a majority in the Legislative Assembly of members who do not work for nothing. It is natural that the : example should spread to the inferior local bodies. Sandgate is at present experiencing the benefit of this system instituted. This Municipality has been a favorite and very profitable field for the operations of Ministerial land jobbers. The residents of Sandgate are few in numbers compared with the abfentee proprietors of land. The absentees are by no means anxious to continue to hold all their land there. Many are, on the contary, anxious to hand it over to others—at a satisfactory prices of course. And it seems to them that they would have a better chance of getting this satisfactory price if they could get their land improved by works constructed at the...

HOW WE ARE GOVERNED. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

HOW WE ARE GOVERNED. "Wednesday, September 30th. Opposition on the part of the Council and of His Excellency the Governor to fresh taxation is a thing unheard of, so the announcement of the latter's assent to The Customs Duties Bill created no excitement. Sammy then got Kates to ask if the local Govern ment Act Amendment Bill would be reintroduced, and, in reply to this question, read a long statement. The pith of it was that the only way to Vindicate the Rights of the Assembly was to drop the Bill entirely. Thus municipalities suffer because the Assembly and the Council can't agree upon an amendment. Miles announced that Government Geologist Jack had .• Gone West Well-sinkine. and tliat.it would be months before he got round to the Groldfields. Committee on Supply was then resumed, and <£47,550 was voted for charit able allowances—an increase of £2750. Some kick ing came from the Opposition during the passage of this item; because, of fresh votes to what Macrossan called...

A Check on Inspection. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 10 October 1885

A Check on inspection. There is a good story going the rounds about two well-known Brisbane men, who are likewise members of the Licensing Board. The worthy pair were inspecting an equally well known hotel. They roamed about downstairs, and then started to roam about upstairs^ and in their roamings came to a room which they entered with out knocking, or saying " by your leave." It so % happened that this room was the bed-chamber of the strapping Hebe who dealt out " lemonades " and other temperance drinks at the bar below. Hebe was there. She was in dihabille, or rather in the act of getting into dishabille, the stage below it as it were, and they caught her right in the middle of it. Hebe screamed blue murder, and the licensing board skipped out, one right away with his wide-spread fingers over his eyes, but the other stayed a moment to apologize. Hebe was a shapely girl, dark, plump, aiid twenty, one of the sort that can dispense with the arts of the dressmaker, and then not lose ...
