Defence of "Jordan's Lambs.'*; The Telegraph ic seriously put about to defend Poor Old Jordan's prbposal to malce 'meaii wliites wbrk in tropical cane-brakes for 15/- a week and rations. For weeks it perspired and fumed under the burden of that anti-working-man nightmare, and made desperate efforts to deny; that such a proposal had been mooted. Even Sam Griffith, Cowlishaw's white headed boy, made one of his stereotyped denials, and casuastically explained things away. . .But, iat last, a brilliant light fell upon Cowlishaw and his white-headed boy.

A Lady's Toast to the Men. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 September 1883

4 A Lady's Toast to the Men. A® a literary meeting Mrs. Dunway toasted the men as follows :-? God bless 'em. We halve their joys, double their sorrows, treble their expenses, quadruple their cares, excite their affections, control their property, and out-manoeuvre them in every thing. lit fact, I may say, without a prospect of successful contradiction, without 'em it would not be much t>f a world anyhow. . We love 'em, and the dear beings can't help it; we control 'em and the precious, fellows don't know it. As husbands they are always convenient, though'! not always on hand ; as beaux they are by no means matchless. They are most agreeable visitors. They are splendid as escorts for some other fellow's wife or sister, and as friends they are better than women. As our fathers they are inexpressibly grand. A man may be a failure in business, a'wreck in constitution, n6t enough to boast of as a beauty^ nothing to boast of as a legislator of woman's rights, and not even very brillian...

God and the Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 September 1883

FBOM one of the early issues of the Evangelical Standard, I quote the following extx*act : . The shuffler in politics is no less immoral than the shuffler . elsewhere. The man who circumambulates in a wily endeavour to deceive you is, most ly himself a deceived man, and can hardly he described as a political moralist. These sentences are extracted from a paper which in its first number, asserted that it was to be estab lished in the cause of " God .and the Truth." Yet, Messieurs the*Rev. Editors of the Evangelical Standard are now silent when I prove that their idol, Samuel Walker Griffith, is composed of the commonest of potter's clay. Let me explain the position. " In a recent nlunber'of FiGfAKo, I accused Sam Griffith of having offered John Douglas the Speakership of the Legislative Assembly, as a bribe to tempt him to refrain from contesting North Bris bane. Most of my readers know the history of the row that followed consequent upon FIGABO'S revela tions, and I need not go over...
