Queensland Frigaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to tne Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 25, 1883. A Contemptible Bat. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 25 August 1883

^'Pear Godj Speak evil of none; . Stick to tne Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 25> 1B83. A Contemptible Bat. IT is really wonderful-it is incomprehensible-it passetli all understanding-this unfathomable impudence of Ebenezer Thorne. ' Ebenezer, you must know, has purchased tlie Border Post, a paper published at Stanthorpe, and has announced himself a candidate for Carnarvon. I will guarantee tp say that, if any other man than Ebenezer Thorne, had received the disgracefully-merited rebuffs he lias received, such man would liave left the colony. From the earliest days of Queensland, Thome's records will not bear inspection. He may pose at Young Men's Christian Association meetings, and talk about virtues which he is not known to practice, but he can not pass muster as having earned a good repute. Every where that he tries to pass himself off as a sanctimonious child of grace, he cannot fail to be detected as a Bort ; of natural curiosity. I really cannot under...
