Annexation Conference. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

Annexation Conference. SIB THOMAS M'ILWBAJTH has asked Mr. S.; W. Griffith to attend with him the approaching Federal Conference in Sydney, which is to discuss Annexation matters. This Convention should be lifted quite alrove all party lines of politics. The desirability of the annexation of New G-uinea is almost universally approved of, and Queensland knows for certain that Mr. "Griffith | doeB not object to it. As leader ofjbhe winning party in the present elections, Mr. Griffith has a right to be one of Queensland's representatives. The Telegraph, with its usual narrow minded bitterness, has raised the pettifogging cry of etiquette, and declares that Mr. Griffith could not go as a subordinate to the present Premier. By this time-thanks, to a great extent, to FIGABO-the people are beginning to get their eyes widely opened as to what" sort of a petty and spiteful dog-in-the-manger Mr. Jjames Cowlishaw, who manages the Telegraph, is. And. they quietly ignore the spiteful belchings o...

Rulled by Renegades. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

Billed by Renegades. Hold you so ! These are the words thai: escaped FIGABO'S lips as the news of the opinion of home politicians reached him. He didn't exult-he never does-but he felt more than ever that he was " II factotum della cita della cita." Now my friends will remember that I told them that that little New Guinea and New Hebrides affair would rnt be scuffed out. And it has not. The Agent-Greneral drew the attention of Lord Derby to the circumstances ih a very strong memorial, and my Lord told them in a sort of " When-I-speak-let-no-dog bark" kind of reply that they had better attend to their own-colonial-business. But,fortunately, there »re people in London just now- newspaper fellows who have more true regard for the welfare of these colonies than a whole hat-full <>f l)erbies. And they just gave him " slops." Now, you will find that he willrecant again, I'll just tell yoii wlio Derby is. - He is the son of his father, and a very bad chip of the old block. Ol...

Cowlishaw's " i I HAVE said before, and I atiw reiterate the state ment that Jatnes Cowlishaw- is running $h© Telegraph newspaper toB]ait^is pwn pocket, and lipt because he is in intense sympathy with the politics "which it advo cates. Having set this statement before you, I will now proceed to drive it 3iome with thfe sledge-hammer of a few indisputable facts-in short, to prove it. When there are in one town two newspapers running as strong party organs on the same political lines, one will (or ought to) always assist the other. For in stance, I am running a strong M'llwraithian paper. Now, if another paper in this town were being run on the same lines, there would be sy mpathy between us, and we would mutually assist each other when occa-? sion demanded it; that is/6f course, presuming that we were conscientiously running our papers according to our conviction^.

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

Football. THE Wallaroo did indeed put the Excelsiors through on Saturday. Both teams were a failure in so much as first twenties go, and it was considerably after time when a sufficient number of juniors could be raked together to make the sides anything like creditable. About four o'clock tbey set to work j the Wallaroos I scoring from a drop almost before the fellows were j aroused from their dormancy. It was soon seen that the Yellows were too good for their opponents, for despite the advantage, and a good one, the Excelsiors had in kicking with the wind, the game was taken up by the first-mentioned and never allowed to leave them. I could not understand why Binder placed men of utter worttilessness in the important places that he didv If it were not that the season is now almost closed, I would just warm up that placing a little. A player may make an error once, and his skipper pass it over, but when it comes to making innumerable blunders surely something should be done. As a m...

It took the first prize at the Vienna Exhibition, the gold medal at Paris, the nrst prize at Sydney, and a first-class award at Melbourne, it is the mildest beer imported, and therefore especially adapted for hot cli mates. It is of uniform quality, is clean on the palate, has the true aroma of the finest hop, and is entirely devoid of Sedi ment.

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

The Wheels. LAST Saturday's run out to the Toowong "course was a very nice little affair, and would have created a much better impres sion, if the boys had all worn uniforms. FIGARO is a member of a rather modest public, and sometimes feels a flush of shame suffuse his bashful cheeks when anything approaching indeli cacy is done or even referred to-and he would like the boys to spare his poor feelings when they turn out as a " body " next time. Let it be as a "body " decently dressed and "properly " attired - don't come out in coat-tails, worn out " cadies," meerschaum pipes, paper collars and blucher boots, but don the dapper little club uniform, and there won't be a girl in Brisbane that is not completely " mashed " on you. The match between Diddie Harris and George Perry created a big stir amongst, the wheels, and they nearly all mustered to see the fun. One thing that charmed an admiring lot of spec tators was the total absence of the grim-visaged, hawk-eyed bookmaking aspirants...

Sam's Pet Kanakas. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

Sam's Pet Kanakas. MOBE South Sea massacres. This time the murderers are the natives of Api, an island in the New Hebrides. The motive for the outrages was the sordid one of plunder. It seems almost certain that the deed waB "put up" by some Kanakas who had just been returned from labor engagements in Queensland. The victims are Mr. W. Steedman (late of Maryborough) Government Agent on the schooner Lavinia; and the second mate and four of a boat's crew of the same vessel. The Lavinia left Mackay on June 21st, reached Api on August 24, and landed some returned islanders. Next day the natives asked for a boat to come ashore. When this request was complied with they attacked the boat's crew, killed Steedman outright and mortally -wounded the second mate and four others of the crew. They rifled the bodies and plundered the boat and trade box. If I remember aright, this was Steedman's first voyage to the South Seas. The Lavinia was commanded by Captain S. Smith. A report of the affair ha...
