The Candid Opinion of the "Wide Bay . "-rK- News;'* "This fitrongly Liberal papier thus comments upon the present state of parties.

"We still hold tothe same politics as we ever did ; but while We wish for Ik deliverance from the wild speculation, the high handed autocracy, and the extremely one-sided legislation of the present Ministry, may the Lord deliver us from falling into the, hands of Griffith, Billy Brookes, Dickson, Rutledge, ef hoe genus omne.

A Worm i' the Bud. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 January 1883

A Worm f the Bud; THE Summer Show was a positive failure. The Rational Association perhaps .want to know, why ? We'll tell them.

UNMITIGATED ROT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 January 1883

UNMITIG ATED ROT. ! THE Penny-graph is real|ytrying to talk non sense. That the luxuries it proves mfcy not be wasted we shall select a few of the good thiugs from its "leader" of the 19th instant,, ! and sandwich them in witli some of our own I comments. The Penny-graph will furnish the more solid nourishment. It will be our duty to supply the mustard. "Only force of circumstances or sense of "duty would constrain gentlemen, who could " command the pleasures of life, to leave their " homes at the great festive season of the year, " and undertake an arduous journey " . . . and so on. Now as this refers to the "courageous journey " of its heroes Griffith and Dickson, it is a pity the motive is not more accurately stated. " Force of circumstances " might mean anything from "change of air " down to "a little account;" and a "sense of duty" does not state whether the duty was to their country, their party, or themselves. It is always best to be plain-spoken if you want to be understood,...

'* Pear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1883. Tm'ofi season in the provinces is almost over. One by one the politicians who have been billed for " one night only M at the various centres of remote population are returning to their homes, to hang up their laurels in the seclusion of their own roof-trees. The power of rampant agita tion is for the nonce calming down, and we tiave leisure to consider what kind of " business' they have All done. The campaign was opened by the Premier, upon his visit to the North, with Mr. Kimber as an attractive debutant upon the political stage. Whatever fault their may be about Sir Thomas, who after all is only mortal and a colonial politician tpo, there can be no doubt that he does not mince what he has got to say. H0 zaps out his policy in good round style, with no great display of oratory, but with a stubborn manliness that evidences he has something to say worth heaiing, and that he ...

Hungerford's Explanation. (To the Editor of the Queensland Figaro.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 January 1883

Hmigerford's Explanation. Bditor of the Queensland Figaro.) yotir issue of Jannary 20, appears an article relative to my trip up towards Somerset, which Implies from its tone that I am nothing more than the would be murderer of Mr. Walter Clark, a gentle man who accompanied me on this expedition; and which also implies that I am very much to blame for leaving him on the journey. If this is the only kind of return one is to receive for wiring to head quarters for assistance in the case of need, it is indeed poor satisfaction, and is enough to discourage others from " the same attempts. My object in writing is to wholly contradict the base imputation which your' article attaches to my movements, and to prevent false impressions being foxaapd. The simple facts of the case ares these Mr. Clark and I, with two black boys, started north from Nor manton more than three months ago-nearly four months, with sixteen horses, and two months' provi sions.
