Federation of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Federation of Australia. FEDERATION is now something more than a myth ical aspiration. It is regarded now, not as a clream of the remote future, hut as a problem that has to be immediately grappled with; Melbourne is evi dently in the greatest intensity of the pulse-beat of this question. There are two representative com e rcial bodies in Melbourne-the Chamber of Com merce,, and the Chamber of Manufactures-both ex ercising vast influence in affecting legislation which concerns their own interests. : These two repre sentative bodies met together in Conference the other day, to discuss matters which equally con cerned both. At that Conference, a resolution was carried, and, mark you! unanimously carried, to the effect that the time has now arrived when individual colonies should sink all minor differences, and should unite to form a Federal Dominion of Australia. Truly, the question is assuming definite shape. Here is a coherent proposal from two influential Victorian corporations. Of...

The Ghost in our Midst. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

-? ; The Ghost in oar Midst. The above lias been a heading in FIGARO on two or three recent occasions, when articles referring to the .abominations in our city in the stink-and-bad-water line were published. Those articles were strong, and told of a digusting state of typhoid-creating affairs. They spoke of dead cats, goats., dogs, pigs, &c., as being allowed to accumulate in water courses. FIGARO also cartooned the subject, and showed how Death was coming along to reap a plentiful harvest here, and how Brisbane was inviting a decimating epidemic. I was, as usual, accused of sensationalism. I was told that I had overdrawn the picture, and was endeavouring to create a scare. ' This was because FIGARO happened to be (as usual) " fhef^rst in the field 1 The other papers-especially -those whose means are not so limited., and whose , staffs are not so few in number-had been blind to these existing dangers. Therefore, argued outside numsicullis, such dangers could not exist. Now, ...

Forcing on Schism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Forcing on Schism. < IN recently mating some remarks upon the perse- ? : cuting attitude of the Presbyterian Assembly of Victoria towards the Rev. Chas. Strong, who, the other day, tendered his resignation; FIGABO hinted that the conjugation of Strong's Church (Collins Street) was only too ready to secede, unless its pastor were left alone; Rev. Chas. Strong, pro bably felt this, and sought, by resigning, to avert such a calamity to his church. But the intolerants of his sect would none of this. They wanted a complete victory for themselves and, not only a decisive, but a humiliating,, defeat for their victim-the large-minded, scholastic Charles Strong. Talk about the bitterness of politics. It is as nothing to the bitterness of sectarian intolerance. As is usual with persecutors, the bigots over-reached themselves, FIGARO'S prediction has been fulfilled. Strong's congregation, though their pastor had resigned, had become so incensed at the evident malice in the fol lowin...

Blacks at Thornborough. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Blacksat Thoriiborough. A Thornborough mate sends me a few interesting items, from which I extract the following: The Blacks are getting a great nuisance about Thornborough, there being about 150 of them in town now (" now " is September IS). They rob the gardens kept by Samuel's lovely pigtailed darlings, scooping off potatoes and fruit-mostly potatoes* They are not only getting' dangerous, bin liave beoome very daring indeed. , The Fort Douglas tribe has beienup here to ioin the Barbarum or 'Walsh tribe, the wo combined forces contemplating a grand crusade against the Changan berry or Mount Mulligan blaoks. The "foOrce" here, the othOr day, disarmed about 180 of these combined tribes, taking away their spears and, other implements of war. However, these were all returned next day, worse luck! The blacks told our immortal commander-in-chief-beg parding, the Sarjint (witfr a big S, please,typo.)-that if the police took away their weapons, the Changanbsrry blacks would swoop down lik...

Queensland Colonial Wines. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Queensland Colonial Wines. THESE is no earthly reason why Queensland should not successfully compete with the other colonies in vine-growing, and the manufacture of really good wines.. We have the soil and the climate* We have a. .protective' duty on imported colonial wines. All we require now are good, sound practical men to tackle the industry vigorously, and protect the in terests of the vignerons, ana the necessary time spared to allow manufactured wines to mature* Therefore, the meeting of the representative Dar ling Downs men at the Town Hall last week is a significant and important movement. I am heartily glad to see that some definite action has been taken, and if I can give the industry a lift on at any time, I'm there. As Griffith is much indebted' to the Cher man vote, it ought not to be to his interest to air any of the fads of his teetotal friends. But you never' can tell what Sam will do. At the meeting in question, Robert Oapner occupied She chair. The Winegrowers' As...

The Sydney Divorce Case. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

The Sydney Divorce Case. TW Horwitz divorce case has been the sensation ' of Sydney. Horwitz ig a commission and shipping agent, 41 years of age, and his wife is only 24 years old.' He had married her six years ago when she was Flora Marks, of Melbourne, an orphan, gaining her livelihood by teaching music. Horwitz now prayed: for a dissolution of his marriage with his wife, on the; ground of her adultery with the co-respondent,' Henry Alberto Solomon, a ybung man 22 yearsof age, who did business as a stock-broker. The re spondent brought a counter charge of adultery by her husband; also denied that she had committed adultery; further pleaded that, if she had com^ mitted adultery, he had condoned it; besides whijjh, she charged liim with cruelty conducive to adultery. The evidence was sensational in the extreme. The acts of cruelty Mrs. Horwitz described were disgust ing and horrible-that Horwitz threatened her witii a razor, pinched, beat, and kicked her,, threw boots at her, depriv...

Halting suddenly, he told her, in,an expiration of freezing mixture, that he didn't care whether the son's pair o' legs made a difference of two days and a half one way or the other. TJhen she let go of him with a jerk, and would have thrown him over for the fellow that prattled prettilyNaibout , the epicurean proclivities of the plesiosaurus in the post-pliocene period, if she had not seen a man coming along with , a tin on his ann crying "Hot pies.".

Morals and Corsets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

Morals and Corsets. My r a, in. her Young Ladies' Journal for August, has started the curious, theory that the corset has a moral as well as a physical .effect on the women who wear it. " Who shall say," shfe asks, "that it is not, thanks to the genial effect of tfce properly-made corset that women are,, as a rule, good; so self-controlled, so devoted to duty ?" Having laid down this thesis, Myra leaves it to others to enlarge ! upon: and discuss. It is certainly a nbvel sartorial suggestion. But it ' is quite possible thai the corset may act as a. kind of moral stay. But wotfld the converse his true ? "Would a corsetless woman t>e devoid of Self-control and devotion to duty ? Whajv again, I wonder, would be' the effect'of a dress-improver on its wearer?. Would it make her false and wly and prone to pre tence ?

A Lawyer's Little Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 29 September 1883

A Lawyer's Little Bill. Thady O'Kanu publishes in the Northern Miner the " particulars of a certain Bill of Costs " made oat by ; Henry Milford, the lawyer, against George Pratt. These costs were charged as against the conduct of the case Pratt v. Burgess, to recover £61. The result of the case was that £23 were paid into court, and a verdict was given for £5 more-r-making JB28 in all. Mr. Henry Milford's little bill exactly came to &81 18s. 4d., so that Pratt would come out with the lively happiness of losing £6 18s. 4d., besides all hiatime, by having gone to law. Pratt sabmitted the account to Archibald, wlio, as arbitrator, reduced the amount of the tojal by £19 19s. 6d., leaving Pratt obliged to pay £14 18s. lOd. Well, Pratt has sav6d something out of the wreck, and has gained a balance of £13 Is. 2d. by going, to law. So that- he actually lost £10, because he could have accepted the £23 paid into court.
