Touting for Titles. "The Dail Telegraph this morning prints a rumour that a confidential despatch, accompanied by a round robin signed by a number of distinguished colonists, was forwarded recently to Earl Derby, recommending the Hon. W. B. Dalley for a baronetcy." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 September 1883

Touting for Titles. "The BaUy Telegraph-this morning prints a rumour that a confidential despatch, accompanied bya round robin signedby a number of distinguished colonists, was forwarded recently to EarlDerby, recommending the Hon. . W. B; Dalley for a baronetcy." Thus runs a telegram received from IS". S. Wales.! Can anything be inore grovelling than theapectacle ] of colonists going cap-in-hand begging for ribands touting for titles ? Can there be anything more de grading to the in^vidual independence and miiQlmess of anyone than to have his name hawked about in conjunction witha whining petition that lie shall re ceive a title r v W. B. Dalley is undoubtedly a fine fellow. He has distinguished himself in the sister colony, is the fore most man at the N. S. Wales bar, and has earned the genuine admiration of the whole of that coloxiy. It must be gall to him to see his name in public print as an eleemqsynaiy hunter after a decoration. It is sickening to witness .the fulsomte adulat...

D. T. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 September 1883

-» ' . On the 4th instant, a. man named'John Stoddard aged about'.60 years, was taken in; charge by the Townsville police, aioid was in such a coiidition thrdugh drink that he was removed to Cope's boarding-house, ^Flinders Street East. During the night, be stripped himself naked and in. the morning was found dead in bed. There were no suspicions of foul play-that is to Bay, of active foul play." But,'! want to know this. If negligence causing death amounts to manslaughter -as has been held~many a time-I want to know who was Jto blame for leaving this poor fellow alone, seeing that it is admitted that he exhibited every symptom of delirium tremens.

On Dit. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

On Dit. Let me be one of the many imitators of the Daily , Observer^and start an On Dit column. Of course, the originality of the idea started with the creative genius who bosses that journal, and he resents as a plagiarist anybody who uses the magic French words. lir'order that the Daily Observer may obtain full credit for its novelty, I will try and follow its lines as closely as possible. Here goes That brimstone and treacle are good for a sore throat. ! That a sore throat is good for nothing. That Sam Griffith will be the next Premier. That Sic Thomas consequently won't.

The Salvation Army. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

The Salvation Army. THE Rev. Edward Husband, incumbent of St. Michael's, Folkestone, England, has administered a severe rebuke to the Salvation Army on the subject of their street processions. I quote some of the pas sages of a remonstrance which might well be cir culated throughout the country. Mr. Husband, addressing the members of the Army, says:-" You profess to be a religious organisation. You say that your motive for all that you do is a religious one. If this be so, does religion teach you to act in such a manner as to become a nuisance to almost every citizen, and so destroy the Sunday:that, through you, the day becomes one of riot and ill-will; congrega tions upset and prevented from assembling together in their accustomed manner, the police denied even a Sunday's rest, in some cases having been on duty all the night past, Sunday schools broken up or disorgan ised, and visitors kept away from coming to our town, involving serious loss to our lodging-house keepers* and to th...

Hireling Scribes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

THE following extract comes from the Telegraph of Friday the 14th instant: The " uneducated and unintelligent" section of the com munity are better judges of Gentleman John's honour than interested apologists or hireling scribes. For spiteful slangy untruth, this is, perhaps, un equalled in the annals of Queensland journalism. The gentleman to whom it refers has, throughout the course of his careeite, given constant exhibition of honorable motives, which are far beyond the limited conception in that regard of the Telegraph or its managing director and ^half-owner, James Cowli shaw. As to the hireling scribes, it is not easy to know" to whom he alludes; but it is pretty clear that if the hireling scribe who penned the libel under notice didn't get his weekly screw pretty regularly, he wouldn't bother much about John Douglas's honor or his own either-that is, of course, assuming that-he has any left. Perhaps his honor has gone to keep company with his lost sense of decency, j :: , 1-?...

The Aprons of the Day. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

The Aprons of the Day. SINCE the fall of our first parents, whereupon Eve toot it out in fig leaves, every year has brought with it some very remarkable novelty in female attire. Without tarrying any longer inhoary antiquity, I take a running hop, step and a jump over all the ages until I arrive at the terrible year rendered for ever lamentable by the introduction of the bustle. ; Subsequently came the enormous hoops, or crinolines, that made the unfortunate gentleman secure seven seats in the concert hall for him self, his wife, land her mamma'; "but which fortunately prevented the ladies from,crowding out the cabin of the flagship, as even the la,te eminent marine architect, Scott Russell, admitted the impossibility of constructing a companion ladder sufficiently wide to admit of their decorous descent. We don't want to be timed by the chronograph, but soon afterwards came those abominable bonnet " pooks " which frightened so many horses and aggravated so many hulls, that fashion,...
