Queensland figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1885. The Coming Question. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

" Fear Hod; Speat evil of none; . Stick'to the Truth j and never be done." BRISBANE s SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1885. The Coming Question. I have always claimed, and still claim, to be open to Conviction as regaids a fiscal policy, but a6 yet I have- been confronted by no argument powerful enough to budge me from that most natural of bases —-FBEE TRADE. Protection is plausible upon the face of it, but the arguments commonly advanced in its favor will not bear analysis, unless those who. use them, like the cross-eyed butcher, really strike at a different head to that at which they look. Protection would undoubtedly establish more factories and workshops, but does it follow that the establishment; of factories and workshops necessarily conduces to the good of the working classes ? That is the chief reason given by the Trades* Unionists recently in Council at Sydney for Advooating a high Tariff. They think it does. I can't see it. The converse of their proposition is that the working-class...

TENTH LESSON. Advice to Rouseabouts in Wool-shed. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Tenth Lesson. Advice to Rouseabouts in Wool-shed. (Continued.) If ypu are told to pick up everything that lias two ends to lt.and to sweep up the rest, you may try, but you, would find that you had to pick up everything. The-only things that have not got ends are circles and points, and there are no points in wool, at least, none that you can pick up $lb the boss means. Leave the points to the wool-classer, and sweep away what you don't feel inclined to pick up. Throw the fleece on to the - roller's table in any fashion, if you are in a hurry to pick up another, if they cannot keep pace with the shearers, it is not jrour fault, and 'you have to keep the floor clean. If they make any remark about throwing it out, do so next time, if it be a dirty fleebe especially, and whisk it gracefully across one of their faces. Remember that there is no time in a wool-shed for argument. ~ Should you hear a call for tar while you have your arms full of fleeees, drop them at once if you Cannot pile...

Coming Events Cast Their Shadow. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Coming Events Cast Their Shadow. A month ago the New South Wales Ministry defeated a Parliamentary motion of non-confidence by a majority of over haif a hundred. To-day half the Cabinet are unseated, its sup porters have been; ruthlessly slaughtered. The Premier appealed to the country, and the country has slugged him. # ■ # #' Queensland can take a lesson from her Southern sister, and Sammy may well ponder over the fate of .Wright. c He, too, has a big majority behind liim tbat does just as he orders ; but he, too, has been playing fast and loose with the people who elected him and hies supporters. He promised democratic reforms and liberal governance. " He denounced taxation of the working man, and declared that the land of the people should pay for the governance of the people. * ' He shrieked against monopoly and hereditary wrong till he was black in the face. But what has he done for Queensland ? ^ Has he been democratic with his defence of ex isting infringements upon the libe...

Plump for Bulcock!!! [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Flump for Bulcock! ! ! I; am an Opposition mat), there's nothing of the ,r qualified support" about Figabo. I think that Saiiimj is the wrong man in the wrong place, and the sooner we get someone else in his billet, the better it will be for Queensland. And yet I say—^ Bulcock for Enoggera." There's n<>thing inconsistent about my saying so either# |)6caiase I have always tried to support the man who will do the most good to the colony at large. „T " 1 1 beUeve -that Bidcoclc is just that sort of man.

Shouting for Sam, and Paying for the Drinks. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

rerouting for Sam, and Paying t • fop3<|e|. Drinks, ^ f When Colonial Treasurer Dickson pressed Chief's, Sam's, obedient slaves to pass his extra taxes ok grog, Sam and Dickey both swore all round$he ring—and proved it, according to Cocker—that ihe new burdens would not fall on the consumers. • It was useless for M'llwraith and Morehead to argue that, hitherto, every new tax has fallen on the con sumer; Sam pooh-poohed him, crooked his little finger to his muzzled dummies, got them meekly to the division lists, and there the matter ended—in tjieory. ? In practice, it has come round just as every one lyut Sam's sheep knew it would. The public has to pay a higher score for its refreshments. They have got it badly up at Roma. The Roma publicans have combined, and here is" the advertisement thfe^ have published in the Roma Star :—

"■ [Advertisement.] Enoggera Cup. STEAiaHT TIP. This time I have no hesitation in going straight for Jimmie Duncan. He is a strong little horse with a big heart, and, judging from his past performances, will carry the extra weight imposed upon him by the Government handicappers and struggle gamely to the front; and should, if he keeps up his present condition, land his backers money. Blue Ribbon Bob will, I think, make a fair run for it, but his condition has been too much knocked about in cutting out the running for the other horses in previous xaces; and, as he is a very uncertain horse, backers are shy about planking their dollars, and he has, during the last few days, gone rapidly back in the betting. As Jimuiie's trial gallops have leaked out, the public money has been piled on, and he is now at very short odds. It is a pity he is so small, but his trainer says that he is bo well put together that another stone would not crush him out. As for Boyce, Blue Kibbon Bob's stable com...

Prison Gangs Driving out Free Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Prison Gangs Driving out Free Labour. The Roma Municipal Council has ordered a poll to be. taken of the ratepayers in its Municipality, in order to test whether or not it is the public desire that local prison labour should be employed. The question of utilising prison labour is always a vivid [ bone of. contention, when raised. It is one, how ever, whicli must be settled purely on local sur ' rouhdings There may be times when labour is so | scarce that prisoners are a very valuable material to the political economist. There may be others when it is waste of money, and hurtful to honest freemen, to employ them. Anybody knowing the present con dition of the West, where hundreds of swagmen are roaming around the country in search of labour, will be surprised at the present proposal of the Roma Council. * It is not just that the honest public should sup port convicted criminals in idleness, and be bur dened with the total cost of their maintenance ; but it is abominable folly to reduce...

M: tfiird ma&f| named Thomas Johnson, was known to be in Taldora at the time, and he and this" mare and foal dis appeared shortly afterwards. Suspicion being directed to his tracks, he and the mare and foal were traced together to Winton, where he sold* the mare and foal to a publican for seven pounds. Naturally, the police nabbed Johnson, and he was tried at the Cloncurry Police Cdurt. Johnson, and the stolen mare and foal, being thus clearly in the hands of the police, and Johnson never dreaming of defying the sale to the Winton publican,-ttte1 evi dence was of the most direct and complete character. Johnson was committed to take his, trial, and that trial came off at Norm&nton the other day. 5 The...

A Roasting Country. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

A Roasting Country. An old mate, Jack Turner, writes, from Golds trough, Pentland, via Charters Towers. The account of the country where he is " sitting down " is appalling. It is about as near an earthly approach to the inferno as can be imagined, barring that there is some water to drink, and an occasional barrel of whiskey finds its welcome way there. Turner remarks that the oldest inhabitant up there declares that he never saw such a season, and then proceeds to describe things,as follows:—"If the present weather con tinues until Christmas time, I believe every hoof on the land will be a dead un. There has been no rain up here since last Christmas, and no wet season for three years. I know, if I were a four-footed animal doomed to graze up in this part, I should simply lay down and die over the present prospect. There is no grass to eat and precious little water to wash it down with. It is as hot as a brick-kiln outside to-night, iand no sign of rain. Grod help us and the cattle...
