Sam Wriggles once More. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 September 1883

Sam Wriggles once More. I am getting so used to Samuel "Walter Griffith's denials that nothing which that versatile special pleading Jim Crow might say would ever surprise me. He denied his famous Chinese statement, and wept aloud that he should be so misrepresented. He now denies his equally-famous proposal to intro duce 40,000 mean whites into the colony. This is " how he goes back " on himself, as reported by the Courier (perhaps he'll" go back " on this as a mis report by-Sind-by when he finds Another wriggle; necessary):- ;;?$ "<7v | He had never proposed to introduce 40,000 immigrants next I year, and of the class now coming here.

Of course, it first of all rakes up the steel rails scandal which h&s been disproved.^ But it doesnot confine its accusations of dis honesty to SirThomas M'llwraith, but seeks, to fix, by innuendo, a sneaking taint of' perjury against some public officers of the State.

French Annexation. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 September 1883

French Annexation. CABLEGRAM by Reuter's Agency : . .. . .. . PABIS, September 5. Advices received from Noumea state that the French war vessels lie Bruat and O'Estrees left New Caledonia for the New Hebrides-with, the object of ..protecting the interests of the French New Hebrides Company in those islands. This, coupled with the fact that some, colonial papers have received cablegrams that France has absolutely annexed New Hebrides, looks like con firmation of the news which FIGABO was the first paper in Australia to definitely make public-viz., that Le Bruat before coming to Brisbane, had already taken formal possession of the New Hebrides in the name of France.^

' . ? . . . The Ghost in our Midst. GOD forbid that I should, for the sake of sensa tionalism, sound any false alarm, or do anything calculated to create a panic in Brisbane. But I cannot close my eyes to facts. Death, in the hideous forms of smallpox and typhoid fever, is in our very midst. Professional jealousy and want of proper health regulations-or, rather, ignorance as to how to carry out those regula tions-and ve&ted interests, are all enlisted muter the banner of the grim, destroyer. Let me place facts before my readers, so that they may see jbhat this is no exaggerated' strain, but merelytherecord of pass ing events. A vessel -lies in the Bay loaded, with immigrants. The Doctor of that vessel is confined to his bunk with smallpox. Of the passengers brought from England by this vessel, some hundreds have been landed at Northern ports, fcnd allowed . to scatter £h|»ix£selves over the country and mingle freely with it& inhabi tants.

The girl's box had? been; delivered into'the store, the storeman acknowledged receiving it, and could not ac count for its disappearance. : The only extenuating circumstance' that can be pleaded is that the box was covered with canvas, and, though the girl's,name was painted uponthebox, it did not appear upon the outer canvas. Further, it is urged that the girlleftthe Depot upon the Friday and did not apply for heir trunk.till the Monday following..
