Nuts for Billy Groom. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Nuts for Billy Groom. Jordan has a hobby-immigration; Isambert has a hobby-tfer monish j Billy Groom goes them one better, for he has two—protection and Canada. The two are intertwined in Billy's festive imagi nation, they rise together when he calls them, hke twin ghosts. If he dreams of »theoretical perfection, np pops Protection; and hand-in-hand with protection comes Canada, Billy's ideal state, the type of what he would like Australia to be. Suppose we take An imaginary trip through Canada and see Billy Groom's, hobby in its stable, before it has been " gingered " by Billy's Bkilful fingers. Just let us see what Canada is for the working man and how protection has effected her trade. If we stand at any crossing place between Canada and the States we shall see the Canacks pouring across :in one continuous stream. Seventy thousand a year is the balance of the tide of immigration and emigration against Canada, A funny showing, isn't it, that men should leave such a prosperous coun...

Country Lock-ups. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Country Lock-ups. I cannot do better than give the description of some of these horrors in the words of my corres pondent. He writes:— "Sometime ago, I had the misfortune to -be arrested on a charge of horse-stealing; I was dis charged, as the Attorney-General filed no bill). I was chained in the Jericho lock-up all night in the police barracks, as the place is called. Two married men with their wires slept in the same bark rookery. The only partition between myself and these families was a bit of bagging or calico, and every whisper could be heard. * * * At Clermont the accom modation is really abominable. The stench in the watchhouse is enough to create a plague. The blankets are given indiscriminately to everyone "who is run in, and I am of opinion they have nevei been washed or scalded since they nave been in the Government service, and that must be for years, for I assure you, any man with a liking for his horse would not use them as saddle-cloths. * * * It happened that while ...

Witness: ** All over the country." Bench: " Where did you stay last night ?" Witness: " The same place as I stayed the night before." Crown Solicitor in the case: " Do you know Mr. F——r, the revenue constable ?" Witness: " Well, I knowed him before, wid his old clothes on, but I don't know him now wid his Sunday ones oil."

Gathering up the Fragments. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

Gathering up the Fragments. For a month and more, the Legislative Assembly have been grinding slowly through the estimates. They have over and over again discovered items of gross extravagance; have over and over again lifted up their voices in. protest against sheer waste of the public funds, and have over and over again . sat like school-boys when the question was put, for getting that the people gave them a vote at the same time that they gave them a voice in the governance of the nation. Twice only have there been petty savings of two of three hundred pounds, Members evidently consoling themselves with Sammy's astute philosoply that so many thousands is only so many farthings apiece all round, and being as evidently lulled by Dickie's wondrous financial theory, worthy of the Member for Rosewood, or of the auction-block, that the higher we are taxed the more prosperous we are. But a change came over the cross-benches on Monday night—a change, that it took a midnight sitting to ef...

A long report of the proceedings was printed in Saturday's Courier, which, as usual, misplaced the accent or emphasis of the proceedings, if it did not entirely misrepresent them. As far as the bare results go, the leading journal could not well go wrong, but its sins of omission and commission are sufficient in number and importance j to demand something by way of corrective here. Ignorance of the requisite special or technical know | ledge, may excuse the reporter forced to the perfor man...

High Jinks at Hughenden. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 31 October 1885

High Jinks at Huglienden. Dear Figaro,—Our little town is going ahead very rapidly, and becoming quite a large place. New buildings are being put up, and after th<3 finish of Goldring, Tolano and Co.'s new store, we shall have a very respectable looking street. The only objection to our streets is the mud after the rain, and there is no mistake it is mud. It takes a pretty strong man to get from one side of Brodie-street to the other without having a spell on the way. Goldring, Tolano and Co.'s new store was opened on Monday night (12th inst.) with a ball, and an in vitation was issued to every one in the town. The dance took place in one of the large store-rooms, on a beautiful pine floor, to good music, and all went gaily as a marriage bell. As Mr. Goldring had gone to Townsville to get united to the loved one of his heart, Mr. Tolano had to entertain the guests, and he did so with a will. Ever attentive to the wants of all, and enjoying himself as much as the visitors,...

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

Municipal Difficulties^ ' It seems to be the fate of the municipal institu tions of provincial towns to have a great deal of ( worry and anxiety to put up with ; and howthey will discharge their dutiel conscientiously, and with out even offending a friend—^although a delinquent —is a question which requires all the prescience and tact of a diplomat. But where a system of local govern ment exists, and where almost an arbitrary power is vested in the local authorities, there should be no difficulty in dealing .with questions effecting: the violation of municipal rules. But still* such a difficulty does exist for the want of courage or pluck on the part of the local authorities, Take, for instance, the Warwick Municipal Council. There they have as magnificent a set of bylaws as could be framed, vet the denizens of that nineteenth century city'walk through those by-laws with a supreme; contempt and iitter disregard for local order. E*en the aldermen occasionally offend. As may be suppos...
