North of Us. Rockhampton. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

North of Us. By Peter Bunkum. Rockhampton. (Continued.) Law.—"The law is a sort of hocus pocus sciebce, : that smiles in yer face, while it picks yer pocket, and the glorious uncertainty of it, is of mair use to the Professors than the justice of it."—Macklin. As a rule the Rockhampton folks are a lair abiding people. A man can leave his front door open and all the .windows up and go to sleep in peace, and lie will find himself still in one piece in the morning, neither will he miss the piano or the bedstead, nor yet even the colonial oven. He can leave his garden without a bull-dog or a man trap any time when the harvest is over and the fruit garnered. He might even lock up the house and clear out for a week, and if the precaution of* re moving all the furniture before leaving had been taken he would find nothing taken, but the precau tion when the got back. The house would still be there, with.perhaps; only a trifling pane of glass broken, and only a rolling stone that gathered no...

Killing—No Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Killing—No Murder. There were a gang of scoundrels soundly whipped afc-the gaol a few weeks ago. The sentimentalists of the colony shrieked in sympathetic agony and elevated the garotters and child-ravishers into martyrs and heroes. There was a hanging last Monday—the murderer was sent to join the murdered—and again the senti mentalists quiver and mutter not loudly but deeply, that it is time " judicial murders" ceased. We shall have an anti-hanging agitation in a very short time if this sort of thing goes on, this sickly, whining sentiment, so I ask my readers just to give the matter half a thought and help Figabo to nip such a lamentable step in the bud. • # * In the first place it seems to me that it is with the slaughtered and not the slaughterers that we should sympathise, if there is to be any sympathy about it, that men who slay their fellows in cold blood must be judged in cold blood, that men who are merciless can expect no mercy, that the slayer should be slain. It is the ...

J. A. Canny on India and Russia. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

? J. A. Canny on India and Russia. Joe Canny, of Warwick, has sent me a neatly printed pamphlet containing his recently delivered lectures at the local School of Arts. I have not had time to read them through, and don't know whether or not I shall read them when I have time. In his preface, Joe says he prints his lectures at the request of many persons who were present at the delivery of them, and apologises for their publi cation in this way:—People debarred by active busi ness engagements from searching for themselves amongst the historical treasures now happily within reach of all, might yet desire to get a bird's-eye view of the subjects touched upon in his pamphlet; 1 The sketches have, at least, the negative merit of of being brief, whether they possess any other, it now lies with the reader to determine. I rom the hasty glance I was able to afford them, Joe seems to be at least as well up in poetry as in Indian history, and he seems to be as desirouB of giving us a bird's-eye...

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

The Wheels. A. good deal of interest is being taken in the cycling events on the 9th November next, at War wick, in connection with the Friendly Societies' Sports, by the wheelmen of the Downs, and also by some members of the B.B.C., who intend competing in the events. As the races will be the first of the kind in Warwick, no doubt the public will roll up in goodly numbers to see them. Many of our local cyclists will regret to learn that Did Karris, Captain of the B.B.C., is but slowly recovering from his protracted illness, and that it will be some time before he will be able to be amongst them again. In consequence of this, the committee of the B.B.C. decided, at a. recent meet ing, that the run off between Belbridge and Harris should lapse, and that they should each be presented with a gold medal, which decision has since met with general appi oval. Messrs. Bennett and Wood, of "Sydney, have given | a handsome trophy of . the value of .£10 10s. to the Bockhampton Bicycle Club, fo...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

The latest mania (so writes a Charleville corre spondent) among the single ladies here is wheeling of perambulators up land down the main streets at the rate of five miles an hour. The presiding P.M. at Warwick believes in giving the devil his due. He fined one of them J35 the other day for absconding from his employment at the office of the Warwick Argus. Francis 0'Beii.IiYj of Euthven-street, Toowoomba, reported a constable for using unnecessary violence to a prisoner. But when he was put in the box, it turned oat that he had simply reported some con stable, trusting to his superiors to know, by consulting the duty-book, whether it was 1A or 2X. He had no idea as to the man's identity, and the information was therefore dismissed. A kanaka at Maryborough had a row with two others. They afterwards followed him, and one of them struck him on the head with a tomahawk. That should have been enough, inasmuch as it rubbed him out, but the other must needs have a slap at him too. He did; ...

Federal v. Confederate. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Federal y. Confederate. I am not a Federalist. I don't believe in Federalization, don't agree with it, and don't like it. It means that the "big state swamps the little pnes and -would put Queensland at the mercy of Victoria. But I do go in for confederacy. The two things sound alike, but there is a very big difference. Federalism is the centralization of the Govern ment over federated states atone point. England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales are pretty well federated and a poor job they make of it. Confederacy is the union for mutual defence and common interests of otherwise independent states. Of this America is a very fair sample. Sometimes Federalism is carried to an extreme, when it becomes despotism, as it usually does in the South American republic ; sometimes confederacy is carried to an extreme, but then the worst that can happen is a breaking up of the union as threatened by the southern states of the American union in 1861. To true democratic confederation then I've got no...

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

Cricket. A match was played on Saturday last at North Ipswich between the Grammar School and the 2nd West End Club. West End went in first, and scored 73, and the School amassed 51. In the second in nings the West Enders made 35 for six wickets. On their side, Byrne, Dalton, and Marcus contributed 17, 28, and 7 respectively; and for their opponents the two Heiner's made 11 and 21. The best bowling was done by Heiner and Darragh for the School, and Dalton, Haly, and Byrne for the others. A match was played at Cannugera on Thursday, the 15th, between the Canungera and Water ford clubs. The Waterfords went in first and totted up 43; and their opponents on going to the wickets secured 9 runs and 6 duck-eggs. After the first innings, aljl the players and a number of visitors adjourned to Lahey Bros/ new saw mill, and did justice to a dinner which had been provided. In the second innings Waterford made 57, and their op ponents 54, Waterford thus winning by 37 runs. A return match, played ...

A Plea for the Burglar. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

A Plea for the Burglar. Mr. Gilbert's plea for the utility of the common, or domestic burglar, is thoroughly fhumorous. The author of " Bab Ballads" asserts roundly that he for one could never quite understand the prejudice against burglars. An unarrested burglar gives em* ployment to innumerable telegraph clerks, police officers, railway officials, and possibly also to surgeons, coroners, undertakers, and monumeatal masons, says the librettist of The Pirates of Penzance, and the discoverer that the policeman's lot is not ® happy one. But the thief's usefulness does not end here. As soon as the burglar is in custody, the services of a whole army of solicitors, barristers, judges, grand and petty jurynen, reporters, govern ors of gaols, and prison warders aire called into requisition. From these premises Mr. Gilbert con cludes that the burglar does more good than harm* Mr, Gilbert sandwiches this argument into another, concerning the sending of circulars throughthe post, with which i...

Bulcock at the back of Sam. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Bnlcock at the back of Sam. The great wire puller of the Liberal Association's manipulator of elections has got into the Assembly for Enoggera. Of course, I expected this. If Bulcock could not put himself in. for any one of the metropolitan electorates it would be a black look out for the Ministry. It is a significant fact, however, that less than one-half of the electors on the roll voted at this election, and that it was thought neces sary to remove some of the polling places to localities where the electors could not conveniently reach them to render Bulcock's return a certainty. It would not, however, have made much difference if the 100 electors, who went to vote at the Zillman's waterhole had been able to get to the poll this time, so I fancy that Mr. B's over anxiety led him or his friends into error when they got that polling place omitted from the list. It remains to be seen whether the organising genius of the great Bulcock will be as useful to his friends inside the Assem...
