"The Poor Printer. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 11 July 1885

"The Poor Printer. " The Poor Printer" is a phrase that has become embodied in the English language as a tradition born of actual and long experience. Hardly ever does one associate the idea of wealth with printer's : ink, and the poverty of the average literary man has passed into a proverb and a satire. This genera,! and public jest has its root in fact. But the day is dawning when " The Poor Printer " will get a better share of his earthly reward than a cold and unfeeling world at present sheds upon him. He is beginning to assert his rights, and, in the end, printer's ink must tell—must smudge out, as it were, the harrowing blight of generations. . .In one particular respect, " The Poor Printer " is .placed at a special disadvantage with men of other avocations. The Government is allowed to use the people's money for the purpose of competing against "The Poor Printer!." The Government Printing Office, with its extensive machinery and well-assorted collections of type, to say noth...

An Extraordinary Statement. Now that Parliament is in session again, I want to get a few little matters explainMthat it waisufeeless to mention when the Legislative Assembly was .not,,, sitting. It is a well-known fact that our Jiailway ■ Department is not getting on well. Expenditure increa-ses faster than Revenue j itud contractors generally and the Department are at; loggerheads^;: only a^few contractors of sound politics cangetw6rk, and prices have gone up. ~ c Now,on the 9th March last, the Telegraph, the Mini- > sterial organ, or hurdy-gurdy, call it which you like, published a letter, stating that one reason for the dissatisfaction amongst contractors was that they were black-mailed by the Government engineers, having to pay these gentlemen a commission of from 1£ to 2J per cent, on the value of! their, contracts. This letter attracted considerable attention at the time, because,'whilst on. the one hand the public was not inclined to think that men like Messrs. Stanley and...

Edward, of the Deodarus, with the exceptions that; the leak was outwards instead of inwards, and that he[ was working in the! interests of Salvation, while; Edwards was bent on destruction. The non-abstainer, on proceeding gleefully to interview his treasure, was horrified to find that the barrel was as dry as ho' himself was. ; Then it occurred to. him that he hadj immediate occasion to proceed to Rockhampton, (re-, member the distance) as he had forgotten, amid busi ness pressure, to have his haircut.

It was the same battle that Captain Grey Howard, of She 12th U.S. Infantry, so gallantly worked the attling gun. The C.-C. sincerely sympathises with olonel French—our own Colonel—on the loss he as sustained by the death of his brave and gallant >rother. "Pity the living and not the dead." The Army and Navy Gazette says:—There is one urious result of the pleasant circumstances under hich the Queen's Government is conducted by her iord-Lieutenant in Ireland. The horses of the valry regiments which furnish escorts for His xcellency are so severely worked, and the pace at which they are obliged to go, in order to keep up with Earl Spencer, is so fast, that they are in poor con dition in spite of the care of the officers.
