France and China. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

France and China. Wae looms threateningly between France and China. The. Viceroy of southern China affirms that the Chinese Government will not sanction the treaty entered into between France and the Anamese pre* tender, Hiephona, and demands that the ^French Government should make an arrangement with the Marquis Tseng, Chinese Ambassador in London. Meanwhile, bullion for war purposes is being sent to Canton in large quantities, while the Chinese Press 'breath war, and'Europeans are clearing but. China men serving on French ships are deserting in large numbers; France met these demonstrations by formally notifying that if the Chinese troops massed on the Tonquiri frontier didn't shiftvoluntarily, they would lie made to shift, and by threatening to blockade the ports of Canton and ~ Pakhoi. The Chinese Government thereupon signified its willing ness, should Europe and America so request, to make the Sahg-Koi, or Tb'iquia 3Sed; River, a universal waterway. The Marquis Tseng crossed ov...

Sporting Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 22 September 1883

Sporting Gossip. RESULT ofthe English St. Leger-Dukeof Hamilton's Ossian 1, Mr. Perkin's Chislehurst 2, Lord Ellesmere's Highland Chief 3. I see by the Melbourne papers that, in the races down there two or three weeks ago, the First Demon would have won only a dog " crossed " him during the race. Talk about "in and in " breeding after that! At the spring meeting of the Q.T.C., the added money is £725. Despot and First Demon are (for the present, only, dear boys,) first favorites for the Melbourne Cup. Le Grand and First Water are healthy at 100 to 6. General betting of the Beenleigh races were only a moderate success. Tambourine pulled off the Maiden Plate. Brandy appropriated the Divis ional Board Stakes (while a good many citizens appropriated brandy). The Exhibition Handicap also fell to Tambourine, with Traveller second. Blaxjklock won the Selling Stakes, and the Consolation ditto were simply a gift to Traveller, whose running was a surprise t6 outsiders. Native collared the Hur...

Horrible Treatment of a Lunatic.. , A yATHBTic tale of suffering, even though it be the suffering of a Chinaman-and a Chinese lunatic at that. . Some time ago, at Townsville, Ah MeyaMas Jang Woy was committed for a term to the local Exception House as being of unsound mind. ; Since his ^nimittal he has been sinking fast, and, on the day upon wiiich his term ended, he was in the last stages of extreme debility. Yet, the Superintendent of the Reception Howse--1under the Begulatw^sr-had «6 atte^^»c (baJi))-but to turn this dying man out; and tiie "patient" had to be made a "prisoner" of and had ^ be taken to enjoy the luxury of struggling to Hire oil in a lock-up cell. This was on Saturday night. Well, the poor wretch did manage to live on till Monday morning, when his case (but not himself) was* brought before the: Police Magistrate. The medical officer called in recommended AH Mey's admission into the Hospital. He;was conveyed there, but the wardsman. of that Institution---jagai», un...

Just Nothing. Keep On Remanding Them. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Just Nothing. : + : Keep On Remanding Them. OVEBWORKED ? Yes, I'm bound to conclude that Inspector Lewis is overworked, more especially in his duties as Prosecutor for the Crown in the Police Court. These "remands" upon almost any and every charge, be such charge trivial or serious, have long since ceased to be a farce, and are becoming a positive nuisance, whereby the liberty of the subject is being constantly infringed, citizens are being harassed and put to expense, and unnecessary time, paper, and temper are wasted by the officials in that dank-smelling hole in Elizabeth Street, which is often but the courtyard to a more grimly Chamber of Horrors. Let itnot be supposed that I advocate the impeding of Justice. Not so. No one has a greater respect for the law, and a more fixed determination to assist the law in the repression and punishment of crime, than has FIGARO. It is the useless red-tapeism that I want to see cut away. It is the useless red-tapeism that often lets the guilty...

"What is it that the English Boast of?" [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

"Whatis it that the English Boast of?" IT has frequently been urged by home authorities that India can only be governed by force. The following extract, which I clip from the Anunda Bazaar Patrifra (Bengal paper), seems to me to bear out that view* " What virtues the English possess that they boast ed much of we are not aware of; In the first place, they come ot a low (degraded) ancestry, and although they have been particularly successful in the acquirement of knowledgfe, still at every step they give evidences of jjjheir low birth. The principal sign of a degraded ancestry is an entire absence of the sense of gratitude; and a more ungrateful nation than the English cannpt beiouud . in the universe. The barristers live on the rice of this country, and yet they abuse the natives of this. country. . .. .i , Many of the tea planters and indigo planters are trading on^ the benevolence of native zemindars, and'yet they abuse the natives.

A Fossil Criticises Fossils. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

A Fossil Criticises Fossils. Old Henry Palmer, the rejected of Maryborough, has convulsed Queensland with, a splenetic satire. He has spoken on a subject upon which he isat home -viz., that of Fossils. As an antique specimen of our social geology, Palmer stands about as unrivalled as any man I know. He is a Fossil of the Fossils of our publiclife, and, if there is anything beyond him in Fossildom,the Teni soun-Woods or Scortechini, who is likely to discover it, has not yet been born. Well, Henry Palmer attended a banquet recently given to Dr. Power at Maryborough. At that banquet, Mr. Hyne had the unblushing temerity, wliile making a speech, to express a hope " that in a short time Mr. Palmer would figure as a member of the Upper . House." No wonder the Palmer's wrath rose even as he . himself rose to reply to the toast then tinder discus sion. Said he, hotlyI do not care to be ranked amongst the Fossils in the Legislative Council." ' I needn't say that this statement disconcerted t...

The Rockhampton Murder. AMONGST other additions to our Brisbane popula tion during the week, has been that of the Biockhamp ton murderer, James Gardner, aZias M'Mahon. The circumstances attending this murderer were of'the most brutal kind. ' M'Mahon (for that is his real name) lived for two years upon the prostitution of " German Ada." He used her cruelly. On thiB occasion^ he appears to have tf booted" her till her liver burst, and death ensued. The evidence was purely circumstantial, hut most damning. So damning was it, that bis honor, in the course of summing up, made use of these words: ''Unfortunately for the prisoner, the girl Sandover heard him say, * 1 will kill her and swi ig for her/ Ifow he is being tried for murder, and, if the jury believe the evidence, as sure as there is a God above us he will swing for it.'' , The jury didn't take 10 minutes to decide.
