Original Poetry. Three Stages. ACT 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 28 June 1892

Three Stages. ACT I. Sighing like a furnace, Over ears in love. Blind in adoration Of his lady's glove; Tliinka no girl was ever Quite as sweet as she, Tells you she's an angel, Expects you to agree. ACT 2. Moping and repining, Gloomy and morose, Asks the price of poison, Thinks ne'Il take a dose; Women are so fickle, Love is all a sliam, Marriage is a failure, Like a broken darn. ACT 3. Whistling blithe and cheerful, Always bright and gay, Dancing, singing, laughing, All the livelong day; Cull of fun and frolic, Caught in fashion's whirl, Thinks no more of poison Got another girl.

Col. Starbottle's Client. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 28 June 1892

Col. Mottle's Client. BY BEET HAUTE, Author of "Tho Lucie of Roaring Camp," " Tales of the Argonauts," " Tales of the Pacific Slope," &c., &c. CHAPTER I, JT may be remembered that it was tlic habit of that gallant' war horse' of the Calaveras democracy, Gcuerrl Starbotlle, at the close of a political cam paign, to return to his original profession of the Law. Perhaps it could not be called a peaceful retirement. The same fiery tongued eloquence and full-breasted chivalry which had in turns thrilled and ovorawed free men at the polls were no less fervid and embat tled before a jury. Yet the Colonel was counsel for two or three pastoral Dutch corn panies and certain bucolic corporations, and although be manage! to import into the simplest question of contract more or less abuse of opposing counsel, and occasionally mingled precedents of law with antecedents of his adversary, bis legal victories were seldom complicated by bloodshed. He was only once shot at by a free-ha...

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est, BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, JUNE 28,1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 28 June 1892

I,he jextern Ijjlmmpion. Vita sine I iter is mors est, 'BARCALOINE, TUESDAY, JUNE 28,1892. WE are ratlier astonished that the daily journals in ltockhampton should take the trouble to publish reports of the inappropriately described public meetings, conducted by what is called the Rockhampton Workers Political Association. At the last "public" meeting held in the Hibernian Hall on Thursday of last week, there were 100 persons present, that is to say out of a population of about 12,000 persons only 100 were represented. The meeting was like all others held by this unrepresentative, irresponsible political clique. It was addressed by two gentlemen, whose names appear in all proceedings of this kind. To hear themselves speak, to get rid of some of the explosive gases which are continually being generated in their brains, and to keep themselves pro minently before a certain section of the community, and, if possible, to have their speeches reported in the daily press, appears to be the ...

Another " Scene in the House." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 28 June 1892

Another " Scene in the House.' THE second rending of the Elections Act Amendment Bill was passed in the House of I Assembly by 36 votes to 4. The four, of course, were Mr. Glassey and bis three satel lites. Messrs. Drake, Gannon, O'Sullivan, and others, who usually vote with the labour 1 party, did not join them in this division, the tact being that the labor members are so notoriously under the thumbs of the Socialist party in Brisbane, headed by Lane, Casey, Seymour, and others of that stamp, that they i are going mad both inside the House as well as out of it. Those who have desired to be their friends and to help them if possible in the House are disgusted with them. Prior to the Division on the Electoral Bill, Mr. Glassey threatened the Premier with personal chastisement, but afterwards climbed down, like his colleague did the previous night, and retracted all he said. The scene in the House is thus reported: The CHIEF SECEETAEY said that Mr. Glassey had threatened the Governme...
