He Loves the Poor Man. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 18 August 1883

He Loves the Poor Mail. SAMUEL WALKER GIFFITH hias propounded a new land policy. The' colony has been agog for a long time to hear him unbosom himself. He has denied that he wants, or that he ever wanted, to make an alliance with the ultra-squatter. In the very next breath, he proves that it is his deliberate intention to do so. It is not worth while analysing the claptrap part of his speech. He found it necessary to tell his hearers that it wasn't claptrap. He had, so to speak, to praise his own good points before making them. Of course, the large and enthusiastic crowd expected claptrap. Any man with experience of such meetings always, expects a certain dose of platform bunkum from a political candidate. And he always gets a full dose. It ig, therefore, only , necessary for me to consider .what Samuel Walker Griffith's promised policy is. And you will kindly remember, to quote his own words, that *' there is a code of honor in public affairs as in every other walkof life.'" Mr. Gr...

Press Liberties. In running the gauntlet so boldly against the N.S. Wales Judges, the S. 3f.' MercM: .and ite' ei£te^$bn infant, the Echo, have done grand service to the Press. of that colony. Newspapers in New $outh Wales have been gagged and womed in eVery tyT^n nical manner, and time after time have Grove^rainehts and Parliaments forgotten or neglected to amend the Libel Laws. . Now, hbweveiy the ^tfomeyf General, W. B.
