"As others See Us." A YANKEE GIRL'S IMPRESSIONS OF THE SUNNY SOUTH LETTER NO. XII. Rain at Last — The Mosquitoes — Parochial Rounds—Not Yet, &c. Brisbane, Queensland, October 28th, 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

"As others See Us." A. Yankee O-irl's Impressions of the Stjnsy South Letter No. XII. Rain at Last — The Mosquitoes — Parochial Rounds—Not Yet, &c. Brisbane, Queensland, October 28th, 1885. My DeAbebt Kittie,—The faithful—which is Charley—have triumphed gloriously, and the ungodly and the heathen—which is poor me—have been utterly overthrown. "For, would you believe it ?—it has rained. It sort of snickered at us last Saturday and-Sunday, but on Monday it got down to work and soaked. The man that owns our house hasn't got round to giving us a tank yet and the way the water poured out of the eave-pipe nearly broke my heart; n Didn't I tell you," yelled Charley, waking me out of my beauty-sleep, "that we're the ten lost tribes ? Didn't I tell you "--did you ever know a man that hadn't told you ?■—" that praying for rain was good in England and might be good here too ? " "Lots of good your praying did," I murmured, rousing enough to drive my elbow accidentally and Scientifically...

ROUNDABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

; Much inconvenience and annoyance have been paused by the rather sudden, and ; insufficiently ; ^advertised increase of passenger fares in our coast ing steamers. The various companies represent that they have been carrying passengers at a loss for the.last twelve months; that tHeyhave mutually .agreed to raise the fares, and that the late prevailing lOwness of fares induced objectionable passengers to travel in the saloon. There is/ no dbubt, much truth in aU these statements, especially the last; but the- change has been especially awkward to arrivals from the country, Northward or, Southward bent. Many who are compelled , by circumstances to provde themselves with what they imagine to be just sufficient coin of the realm to see; them to their. , intended destination, find that their provision is not up to the mark, and have to incur extra expense either by remaining in town; or returning home, disappointed and rueful. Says "Blunt Knife" in the Cooktown Indepen dent ~L&st...

From the Frying-pan to the Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

From the Frying-pan to the Fire. It is out of the frying-pan very often when men shut their eyes and jump., That's where Sammy's jump has brought us to on the labour question. From the Polynesian to the Javanese ! Which is the better ? The Polynesian was an animal, a brute. He had no idea of civilization or its toil; all he wanted or would do, was to work a few years for " trade," and then to go back to his island and leave Queensland for good. He could no more compete with the white artisan than the horse can compete with the steam-engine. It wasn't in him, nothing could bring it out. He was a pure and simple labourer, and not much good at that, except in the hot weather, when the white man weakened, and work had to be done. Then the Polynesian braced up. He stood in the broiling sun when the Englishman would have dropped in his tracks. He did the tough, hard, straight work of the sugar fields, and that was the end of him. Was his presence inimical to the white labourer ? Well, I a...

Rip Van Winkle Journalism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

? Rip Yan Winkle Journalism. The Government organ, which Annear irreverently terms an advertising sheet, but which many people know as the Telegraph, has some ways which must trouble the recording angel to keep track of. , i Sleep is its normal condition, but it wakes up occasionally to relate something which it had heard indistinctly in its dreams. That is how it awoke last Monday to complain of the way in which the gaols were run, and to suggest that something ought to be done about it. , ^ I read it—I make a point of reading the Telegraph, forit is j newsy on the theory that all things.that happened years ago are newsy if resurrected; and it is very soothing and lulling to the overworked nerve centres of the average pressman who can imagine the ease and disregard for hurry with which the fancy editor gets his work in. Hurry, on the Telegraph, is relegated to the adver using canvasser. Well, I was reading the Eip Van Winkle in a care less sort of way when it suddenly struck me tha...

Veracious Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Yeracious Reports. Of course, impartial reports of our Parliamentary proceedings can't be expected from such a one-sided paper as the Week. It goes, however, too far when it relates scenes which never occurred. In last issue Hamilton is selected for one of these veracious tales. It states that on Hamilton attacking the Premier he was set right as to his facts by an other member, on which Hamilton's reply was received with laughter which quite flattened him. The best way to show what faith can be placed in these Week tales is to relate from Uansard what really occurred. The Premier had taken advantage of the shelter of the House to make a vicious and untruthful attack on a paper (Figaro) which had dared to criticise him. Hamilton replied that this was an old plan of the Premier's, that even when he lately received a deputation in Victoria, he actually complained to them (they had, of course, lap'interest in the matter) of the way in which some Victorian papers criticised him, and sai...

*' Feat Hod; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Troth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1885. Queensland as a Panper. The Baptists of the colony have been in conven tion assembled, and have* concluded that there are people who .need Christanizing even worse than the bushmen. rthink so, too, and right here in Brisbane* but th$t is where I and the Baptists don't hitch. 3?he Rev.

He has told them of the cobra, the tiger, and the mftlatie—trials which, in this hum-drum colony, we cannot offer to missionary enterprise—until the brethren th»ob in sympathy, and regret that Eng land only spares enough from her starving millions to enable them to keep one missionary* in Hindo stan. . • For that is what.

Athletics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

V Athletics. Ker, of Aplin and Brown's, Townsville, lias mani fested the possibility of maintaining a goodly amount of pluck and endurance even in that trying climate. He was engaged to play in a cricket match, A. and B. against the Caxton club, and also to pull No. 2 in the tface between Koss Island and Townsville. On the cricket ground he was sent in first, and succeeded in putting together 63 runs before he was dismissed. He then took his place in the boat (the starting point being close by) and rowed a winning race. He then returned to the field and did his share in the leather hunting, ap parently with as much energy as his comrades. Ms side, of which he was captain, won the match by 94 runs, so Ker may well be proud of his day's work. Marshall, who was charged with indecent as sault, at Townsville, has been discharged, no bill having been filed against him. Thomas Holmes has been fined, including costs. £5; in the Townsville Police Court, for flogging a boy named Seaton with a...

Government Ads. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Government Ads. I see from a return lately laid before the Assembly,! on the motion of Mr. Lissneiythat during the last financial year our Government spent the nice little s am of of £10,802 3s. 9d. in advertising. Now, I am not going to complain that I don't get my whack out of this tidy little sum. You have heard all about that before. Figabo has no need to go begging for advertisements. If the Government does not recognise the fact that it has the largest circulation in the colony, private advertisers do, as j witness my pages. And I rather think that it does me good, with my subscribers, to be under no obli-! gation to Ministers, There are plenty of men who like to know that their paper is unmuzzled, and who take Figabo because they know that as I have j nothing to gain by toadying Sam, I am not likely to suppress anything that they should know, either .through love for, or fear of him. * But since Government advertising, like kissing, goes by favour, it is only right that those...

Another Bald-headed Wrong. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Another Bald-headed Wrong. There have been tiro or three popular uprisings of the English people, and every time it has been against unjust taxation. That caused the old time disturbances when the wen of Kent marched upon London; it cost Charles Stewart his head, and George III the fairest portion of his dominions. So one would imagine, at least, I should think so, I that in this nineteenth century and in this de mocratic colony, such a watch would be kept upon the public purse that no one could open it save by the consent of the people's representatives. For taxation and expenditure are as cause and effect, the latter can no more exist without the former | than the sunset without the sun. | It is as great an infringement of the rights of the ; people to spend money without the direct sanction of Parliament, as it is to tax the people without their consent. There is no difference whatever between the two ! actions ; at least, I, for one, hold not, and would like ! to be told if ther...
