Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Cricket. The two premier clubs of Townsville, viz., the Mercantile C.C., and the Townsville O.C. (both of which by-the-wiay profess to be the premier up there) have arranged for a match to come off on the 17th of this month, and be continued on the 24th, and 31st inst. As there are some cracks on both sides, a considerable amount of interest is centred in the game. It is rather a difficult matter to " tip " the winning1 team, but I fancy the " Merks." will stand a fair show of appearing as victors. The Townsville and Mercantile Cricket Clubs commenced a match on Saturday, the former going to the wickets first, and keeping there all day. When time was called their score stood at 160 for five wickets, of which JT. Tiddy made 76 by very creditable cricket; though had there been a sharp wicket-keeper on, it is probable his career would have been shorter. Hartland carried out his bat for a reallysplendid 45, during the contribution of which he never gave a chance. There is likely to be s...

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Aquatics. Beach says lie will pull Messenger for the cham pionship of the world, provided the proposed stakes be raised from <£200 to <£500. One of Messenger's backers, J". D. Young, hereupon recalls to Beach's memory the time when he (Beach) felt so sore at Banian's insisting on the stakes "being; <£500 instead of <£100, as Beach wished, whenHanlan ultimately agreed to his terms. Young adds that, but for Beach's friends displaying somuch zeal andactivity in raising the money for the grand champion race, after that, he would have still been in Dapto obscurity, and glad to pull local men for fivers. The Commercial and Kangaroo Point crews pulled I off, on Saturday last, over the same course, the race in which they came in, a dead-heat, on the previous Satur day. They were started by H. M'Cleer and rowed a very exciting race, Commercial winning by a yard. Kan garoo Point passed them, in one stroke, immediately after passing the winning buoy,...

The Proposed Pacific Island Laborer's Act—As it has passed Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

Tie Proposed Pacific Island Laborer's Act—As it has passed Committee. Sam's latest deal against the sugar-planters is a " downer." It not only doubles Upon their taxation, but provides that in five years the importation of black labor shall cease. Two Minor Clauses, The two first informal clauses of the Bill are comparatively unimportant. v They merely provide that the Governor-in-Gouncil may appoint assistant inspectors with all the powers of inspectors under previous Acts, andthat,if after anislander lands in the colony, his island is annexed to any civilised power, he shall still' remain under the provisions of the Polynesian Acts as long as he is in the colony. A £3 Capitation Fee. On the plea that the Polynesian Fund does not half meet the various demands upon it, the capi tation fee has been raised from 30s. to J53. Black objected vigorously, claiming that the fund was literally thrown away by those in charge of it, and instancing the costs, of law proceedings, the " kidnapped...

PERSONALS [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 24 October 1885

"J hope I don't intrude."^ John Bbown, well known in the Valley some years ago as a Cordial manufacturer, Fruiterer and Con fectioner, and better still as an honest open-hearted Englishman, has started business in Melbourne St., South Brisbane, 3 doors from the Palace Hotel. John Brown has been identified with Stanthorpe for the past 12 years, where his pure cordials, sugar beer, and honey toffee are deathless memories. He sold out less than a year ago and took a trip to the Old Country accompanied by his excellent wife. The South Brisbaneites may be congratulated on possessing "Honest John" as a caterer for their wants. John Oramp of the Excelsior Hotel, Townsville is quite a connoiseur in the matter of hats* and at present possesses one, which, if cost be any guaran tee, should prove a wonderful head-piece. Host Cramp purchased that hat under peculiar circum stances. " All along o' the gals " again. A. J. Moore was having a pitch with one of .John's Hebes, and the boss objected, o...

Droving. Br Peter Bunkum* On Swimming Rivers, Farming* and a Tale of the Dawson Flood. CCqntinued.) Looking on while a large mob of cattle are swimming a river, one would think that at least« dozen, or perhaps a hundred, would be drjowned; but it is seldom that any serious loss occurs, if ordinary'' discretion is Tiffed in putting the cattle in,.find there is any sort of a safe landing place on the either side. The greatest danger the drover has to fear is some check in mid stream, when the leaders turn bsusk oil the cattle behind, and. they start to ring: in the water, as I have described their doing1 on land in my last chapter. The cattle get allheads together—a mass of tangled horns—the more powerful bullocks clambering up over the backs of the weaker ones, and ducking them under, where , they are forced to remain, for, struggle how they will, they cannot again force themselves to the surface through the thick body of cattle who are whirling round above them and churning the wate...
