Western Australia Advances. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 September 1883

Western Australia Advances. WESTERN Australia lias jumped ahead of Queensland and is going to try land-grant railways. This experi ment will be an interesting test. Anthony Hordern,' a Sydney draper, who is the representative of a London syndicate of almost^ unlimited wealth, has telegraphed from- ?erth, Al»^ iFofyst; <& Angrove, his London agents, to accept at once the terms proposed for the con struction of the Beverley and Albany line on the land grant system in that colony. I believe that the terms are something as follows:-A line is to he constructed from Beverley to Albany and a line from Yorke to Euela/ via Hampton Plains, the syndicate to maintain and equip lines, the surveys to be commenced within one year of negotiations being con cluded, and the work of construction within two years ; not less than 40 miles annually to be' constructed; the syndicate to introduce 5,000 adult European immigrants within five years, receiving in consideration £10 per head c...

"If Mr. Griffith Shows! [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 September 1883

"If Mr. Griffith Shows! Buckland was asked a railway question at Hem mant on Monday night. Part of his reply was " If Mr. Griffith shows that the time has arrived when a railway ought to be commenced from the Gulf to the Cloncurry, I will - vote for it." Kindly note the words 1 have italicised-<f If Jlfr. Griffith shows." Evidently if anybody else shows that the time has arrived, Buckland does'nt pledge : himself ; but " If Mr. Griffith shows," he will %ote blindly. .... . .>_.;V v Lei Sam throw " heads/' or let him throw " tails," ''< ? ? 8till Buckland sticks to Sammy's cod.t-tails; Let Sam muck loatis, or let him muck land, He's always sure of J. 1iV Buckland, Whose notions all by Sam are bounded, Who never for himself has sounded, Who can't e'en follow his own nose, But yelps. " If Mr. Griffith shorn!" No matter cold oivhot.it blows. Enough " if Mr. Griffith stows !"

THE Sydney Municipal authorities hWe made a raid of inspection upon the Chinese quarters in lower 0eorge*st. The most filthy sights.were met with, and about 20 Chinese have been, summoned.

Mr. Pink's Pets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 September 1883

-v .ipink's Pets;' AMONGST the pets at present under the care of Mr. Pink, Curator of our Botanic' Gardens^ are two inter esting cassowaries from the far North 01 Queensland. These seem to be a sort of half stage between the emu and the OBtrich. They are quite - youngj and healthy and vigorous birds. Judging by the quanti ties t>f bananas they "put away," they have what a local firm advertises as " voracious appetites and no conscience." It was while watching Mr. Pink feed these new pets that I was led to enquire how* it iyas that the Gardens authorities did not take pains' to acquire a more extensive collection of zoological, as well as botanical curiosities. I then was informed that the whole amount placed by Government at the disposal of the Botanic Gardens authorities was the paltry sum of £180 a year. Out of this £180 a year, the Brisbane Gardens have to supply seeds, slips, and other botanical curiosities to every other Gardens in the colony. ; £180 a year ie an absurdly in...

Sporting Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 September 1883

Sporting Gossip. [BY HEBMJT. ] LAST week I devoted a small space referring to the sires, which had by their stock proved most successful as sires of race horses in Queensland during the past season: and this week I intend .to give a few notes wi$h regard to other blood sires with which, in travelling through the country, I have recently,come in contact; but hardly, ever in my experience has there been a season were so few of these were to be found, and it ia no pity either, for the amount -of -worthless rubbish which is usually to be found at the service of the public, and patronised on account of the lowness of the fee, is little less than an insult to the breed of horses.
