A Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 2 August 1884

A Suggestion. One of the leading:topics of the day is un doubtedly that relating to the policy of Mr. Gladstone in connection with the relief of Genleral Gordon. Men of common sense and intelligence (and they are not all in the Vic torian Parliament) do not, however, concur in the sentiments put forth by the English Premier. We, amongst many others, have given this subject our undivided attention, and have at last arrived at the conclusion that an army composed of the cabmen of Australia would form a welcome reinforce ment to aiiy body of men which the English Government may send out. These men have every qualification, as they are, and. have been, always used to chargingfearlessly, and we'll lancer for it, they are the right sword of men to change affares most materially. An appropriate motto for such a corps would be "Excelsior"-hire and hire.

He was informed that the editor was away with the small-pox - (he really had to stay at home while his only boots were being darned)-but the poet left the subjoined "poem," saying he would call round again to see how the editor' took ,to it. We have made arrangements for the poet's reception, and have no doubt that the red-nosed party will not complain of his welcome on the grounds'of want of warmth. We have shar pened our nails; had our boots toe-capped, and'secured the lease' of an ancient batter ing ram.
