Sporting Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 September 1883

Sporting Gossip* [BY HERMIT. } Notwithstanding the money recently laid out by (be Towns ville Turf Club, and the liberal programme they have just got through, they have still funds at their disposal and they propose having a day's-racing on Boxing Day, when some £200 will be' run for. I believe that the new Fitzroy Bacing Club intend to hold their second meeting on New Tear's Day, being the same date as that selected by them last year, and that they will offer some substantial prizes to be run for. I think, however, as I have previously remarked, that it is a pity that the F.R.C. doed not amalgamate with the Rockhampton Jockey Club; when the ' concentrationof the energies of so many -good sports could not 1 fail to bring-about substantial results. Sunning two clubs in one town don't seem to work well; and it is not to be wondered at when we know the amount of fostering which it takes to keep one club going. . Blackall has apparently found out the mistake . of it, and even in Brisban...

A Prophecy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 September 1883

A Prophecy. I VENTURE to make a prophecy. X place it on record in order that my readers may be reminded of it when my prediction, comes to pass. The horoscope leads me to assert'that, should Samuel Walker Griffith become the next Premier, within twelve months from his mounting iiito power, it will be necessary to appoint Relief Committees in our principal towns and to provide Relief Works. This is no mere idle; assertion. . I have watched colonial politics and the Home market for some years closely and attentively, and I am . convinced that it is impossible for Queensland to continue borrowing as she, has done in the past. Nay, I "will go further, t say that it is impossible for this colony to obtain by loans the amount necessary to carry on even the works now in progress, or ordered. A nasty .crisis is even now at our.door. > It is only a question of five' or six months. The Griffith policy makes no provision for it. The Stagnant® pooh-pooh it. But the danger is nohe the less re...
