Lumley Hill for the Cook. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 September 1883

. ? : Lnmley ffill ifor the Cook. A Northern correspondent sends me an Arcadian picture of the method of canvassing adopted up North by, Obadiah Lumley Hill. Obadiah has evidently quite won the heart of my correspondent, and, if I hadn't known Lumley in the old days, why, hang it, I should feel inclined to embrace him myself. I hear that Obadiah positively fraternises with all classes of working men, cuddles babies, praises the' mothers, and says soft nothings to the lasses. I am told be shakes hands all round with "the boys," giving a hearty, taking grip without ever once looking to see whether the fin he shakes is clean or dirty! He'll pat a little urchin's head, And give him pennies, it is said; With flatt'ry praise the mother, and'll Her latest olive-branches handle, The while he talks of measle3, cronp, ?

\ r *' Pear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to tne Truth.; and never be done," n.H BRISBANE : SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15,1883. Whites and Blacks. If it were possible to induce the leader of ' the . Opposition to drop the lawyer ,for once and speak as a man, I feel satisfied that, notwithstanding his ^jrteat ^ ambition, he woiild prefer not/ to enter Parliament just now as the Leader of a small majority. Mr. Griffith has floundered so much, has so '^backed and filled/.' and Has made so many rash assertions, that he cannot now turn in any direction without being met by obstacles which all hi3 ingenuity and art. of qdibbling will not enable him to overcome. , The very first question that will have to be settled by Parliament, no matter who is in j>owfcr, is the labor question. Sam's party bos been returned almost solely on the Coolie cry. The late controversy anerit land-grant railways has not, in my opinion, influenced a single vote in the centres: of population..

The Ghost in Our Midst. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 September 1883

The Ghost in Our Midst. EVE&t day proves the truth of my remarks upon this subject: made in last week's Figaro. I said then that I had no desire to write merely for the sake bf sensation. Events have proved that there was no necessity for me to provide the sensation pari of the business. The sensation is in our midst, poisoning the vijbility of the metropolis. . Late ne%s from Peel Island, the. quarantine ground, tell that two more cases of smallpox have cropped up amongst the immigrants by the Duke of Westminister, the patients being Miss Beid, a second cabin passenger, and the Chief Officer. Typhoid fever, too, is cropping out in aU directions. I made allusion in the article of last week to a pesti ferous drain in a very unsavory locality-the immedi ate neighborhood of the Gytnpie hotel. : It has not surprised me in theleas't to since learn that Brannelly, the landlord of that hotel, has, in the past, paid the penalty of living in so insanitary a locality. He contracted a ...
