Foreign Affairs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 February 1883

FBOM Ireland India is a long step, yet .there are political analogies between the two eountries .that jhelp to fill up the gap. Both are held in subjection by armed rule, both are systematically exploited by the dominant race, both ate alike in religion, in tempera ment, in customs and ideas, both have many of their legendpand superstitions incommon, and in^both the peasantry ,-are ground to the dust by a system of seixii- : feudal; .tenurp.

A Peep at the Shows, " You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it ?"-The Spanish Student. JUST A SPARKLE. After a long internal of silence and gloom, the Theatre Eoyal is again to bo opened for p^bUc" entertainment. This time $e company is not upon a'Mastodou scale.

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1883. "LET THERE BE LIGHT." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 February 1883

Pear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3,1883. " LET THE BE BE LIGHT." The great Truths of the Bible must be taught in our Schools. That is the one plank in our platform to which wo shall cling with all our Soul, with all our mind, and with all our - money. There are parts of the Bible which are hardly "meat for babes": there are books of doctrine and books of history that trilyf be left for riper years. But we do say, in full arid perfect hope that our words will be listened to, that in a Christian country it is a disgracc, nay more, it is a sin, that because of disputes among men, the grand, yet simple truths or the Bible should be wlm held from our children. The divisions of sects and denominations we shall not touch upon. We care not for such arbitrary divisions in the grfind principle which we advocate. No matter with what ceremony they bend the knee; no matter- whether they worship in Church or Chapel, in Cathedral or...

The Trigger. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 February 1883

Jthe Trigger. The second quarterly meeting of the Logan Pigeon Club took place at Beaudesert on the 26th ultimo, but owing to the wet weather was hardly so successful as it otherwise would have been, as the unsettled state of the elements prevented the Brisbane contingent from putting in an appearance, as well as many local members from a distance. However there was some good sport,- and 150 birds were got through. Tiie first match was* shot off between Messrs. «Tt>hn Hay gafth, R. Boyd, and A. Keary, against Messrs. F. Goal son, H. H. Elliott, and Gk Collins, which was won by the first named team. After this five sweepstakes were shot off, in which the principal scorers were Messrs. G. Collins, R. Boyd, and J. Haygarth. They seem to be a capital lot of sportsmen in the Logan district, and they may rely on our warmest support in all their ventures. ? - ?)' ? ?

HOW TO BECOME A SQUATTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 February 1883

HOW TO BECOME A SQUATTER THERE are a good many remarkable features in the Penny-graph's outcry against land grants. The patrioticsquatter-who 1 inV ictori a and s pends hie Q ueensland profits in building hi mself a man sion at Toorak-declaims against letting the land go to " foreign " capitalists. He wants things left as they are, and won't have new fangled ideas introduced. Now the present way of collaring a run is this. ^ You first use your pre-emptive right to cover as much of the permanent water as it will. Then, when the time comes for throwing open to selection, you don't object. Oh no. That was a silly mistake the old pioneers use to make, You declare that nothing pleases you better than to see the spread of settlement, and, smiting your manly bosom, you denounce the wicked monopolists who want to lock up the land from the poor people. Of course you have a few trusty hands ready to select "in the interests of the station" if necessary. But you try just to get some land put t...

Is Queensland to be Federated? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 February 1883

Is Queensland to be Federated ? WHEN party politics grow ilull down South, public men and writers begin totalkabout federation. In deed Mortimer Franklyn's newspaper, the Federal Australian, is supposed to run mainlj on tbat ticket. Sometimes our f rieuds down there are good enough to allow Queensland to stand in with them in the glories of the forthcoming Australian Dominion, and some times not. But there is one feature of all these federal schemes which crops to the surface. Our big neighbors always think of themselves as playing a first fiddle in the Australianeoncei t with all the little (!) colonies like Queensland keeping time obediently. This peculiarity.is more marked in Victoria even than in New South" Wales, perhaps because all Victorians seem to have a double allowance of provincial vanity. The; Federal Australian generally conceives of a uiiited Australia as combining its wealth to support endless palatial mansions in Toorak, all shower ing invitations to dinner on Morti...

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. SATURDAY'S CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 February 1883

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." -Baekabt. SitUJftDAY'S GbiOebt., IN tlie Gardens, the selected team turned out ior an afternoon's practice. We regret to say it was virtually an afternoon vested. Nettle was not firm enough with his men : each player did very much as lie pleased. It is to be hoped that- stricter jdiscij^lin<a will be enforced next Friday. Every ptayeV^^ro^ibn, except White, had a quarter of. an )iour at the wickets, and nearly every man was out three or four times. Strickland, Roberts, and Baines, got out from two successive balls. Only three men, Cowan, Wearne, and Petrie, played out their time, and of these Wearne alone showed good cricket. The rest of the team played most rccklessly, and got more barm than good out of tlie practice. The bowling was good: especially Wearne's, who was in great form. This fine player will be of great service in the match,-and we "hope he will permanently settle in Brisbane....

The Barrel Organ. We cannot do without 'em. PART II. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 February 1883

Wo want some Bible towelling Within our public schools; We want our sons and daughters Taught necessary rules. We cannot do without it, - Though man has raised the cry, To win some State election, That religion's, bigotry. No, we cannot do without it, It holds the greatest truth; And why in sunny Queensland Should we keep it from our youth. There'd be less for St. Helena, Reformatory or Gaol; > ? If they would only teach the young The Truths that never fail. Still we cannot do without 'em Those lazar-dens of crime, - For sin and vice and penalties ,W»H last as long as time. We cannot do without 'em. But gaols will never preach, Those lessons upon right or wrong That we ask you to teach.
