The Kanaka's Lament. [Sam Griffith in his great zeal for the welfare of his poor black brother, sent spies here,|and there to keep the planters in order.

The Mitchell Wager. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

The Mitchell Wager. (Written for Figaro.) Two jovial men of Mitchell place, Agreed to ride a jockey race, To see which moke could t'other's beat, Eight down the mainest Mitchell street. The one we'll style Pilgarlic straight. The t'other (Knight of G reeny Grate) Well here call Joe—his name no time. But then it makes, an easy rhyme. Well, off they started, Pil and Joe, You bet they didn't waltz off slow, For they were gleeful and hilarious, And flew like lightning "on the various." Pil got ahead, and, just at Shane's, He took a grip upon the reins, In view an anchor there to cast, But Joe, full spinning, dashed right past. Pil's horse, thereon, commenced to buck, But to him manfully he stuck, And held him in a master's grip, Disj)laying splendid horsemanship. But though, his struggle Pil thus wel I met, Not so his head-protecting helmet; As meant for him his hat did fail so, And so did someihing you'll hear also. His horse subdued, away went Pil, And caught up Joe, then stopped at w...

A Ghastly Yarn. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

A Ghastly Yarn. A correspondent tells this yarn:—" lately took a mob of cattle towards Port Darwin. En route, he had some.horses speared by the blacks. Shortly afterwards he met , and the pair de cided to wipe out some niggers. They did so, and then cut out of a blackfellow's carcase a strip of skin two inches wide and four feet long. He brought this down to station, and placed it on exhibition there for some days. He afterwards gave it to , ex-manager of , who has since gone to Melbourne, and taken the strip of nigger-hide with him. He is to get it made into a belt, and the said belt is to be worn by fire-eating 99 This is very like a whale. Any man who would perpetrate such a deed as that described above, would probably be afraid to face a live nigger, much less go out on a wiping-out excursion. He might possibly have come across the carcase of some old nig., an danatomise it. E. B. Wareham, the courteous and obliging senior clerk in the Townsville branch of the A.S.N. Com pany, h...

Droviug. br pb^eb Bunkum. A Dry Time—A Barcoo Shower—A Tarn of the Expedition Range. -A (Continued.) And now another phase of the drover's life comes before us. We have followed him through storm and tempest, through flood and stream, through the darkness and the rain, the clear moonlight and the brightness of the morning, as the sun shone out and the clouds rolled off; when the full glory of a joyous spring burst forth, making all nature smiling and happy. But now that same bright sun riseB too often unobscured, too often that rosy horizon is cloudless j again and again the sun sets in the red, glowing west, and shows no sign of rainj the hot winds blow over the boundless plains at night; the fiery sun beats fiercely down by day; the* bright, green grass begins to pale, the blades curl up, then wither and fade away till crumbling on their stalk, the wind catches them and snaps them off and whirls them away, and soon that once green, wholesome fodder is but dust floating in the oppr...

Dutton's Lottery Box. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

? Dutton's Lottery Box. Charles Boydell Dutton is an honest man. He has told us so himself. He is also a patriot. He has boasted of that loudly. He is the friend of the poor selector as against the holder of large estates. He has proclaimed that fact from the housetops, and the Toowong Institute. But, if there is one thing that we know more than another from his own mouth, ifcis that we know that Button's going to bust up dummying and land frauds. We know that he has bust it up by his Land Bill. He has told us so himself, and surely he ought to know what his Bill has done. Dutton told us he introduced the raffle or lottery system in respect of the sale of Crown Lands or leases, in order to choke off the big capitalist, who used to run prices up to unnatural values, and dummy, and do all sorts of things, and shut out the poor-man without much money. The raffle was going to do all this. Everyone would have a fair and square chance, and the first paper pulled in the raffle would get th...

Government Subsidising Sugar Mills. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

Government Subsidising Sugar Mills. So far as appears likely to-day (Thursday) the vote of <£50,000 proposed by the Government to sub sidise a Central Sugar Mills system is not likely to pass. I am glad of it. The Government might just as well be asked to subsidise a soap and candle factory, or a newspaper. And, talking about newspapers, it has been pub licly stated that the Telegraph, which was bought the other,day by Billy Miles and others, has for one of its principal proprietors no less xi person than Sam Walker Griffith. That statement was made in .Griffith's presence and hot denied, so it may be pre sumed to" be true. The vote of .£50,000 towards sugar-crushing is a fraud. The planters don't want mills. They have lots of them. They want labour, and Sam has taken care to drive the labour out. Was this policy done in order that he and his crew might enter into a speculation in the sugar line themselves ? Of course not. What right lias Government to take your and my mo...

A General Shout. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

A General Shout. In a certain email township out West, a man, known as Bill the Cockie, went on a " bender." Now, this township consists of two pubs, such as they are, one, store and about three dwellings of unpretentious architecture, and can muster, when all the residents turn out, a full roll-call of 28, including two Ger mans, a blackfellow, and Susan, his gin. Bill the Cockie had the tantrums and was advised to take some of the real stingo, and how he got on may be gathered from the fact that they had to chain him up to an iron-bark tree for six hours, a course of treatment that not only did not improve his health but made him " considerable mad." When they let him go, he went straight to the shanty where he had got his medicine and said: "'Ere, give me my blooming bill, I wanter get out of this 'cursed hole, and go back to my own fever pan." After a laborious process of manoeuvring, the shanty keeper produced the bill, made out on a piece of brown paper, and apparently written...

Telegraphic Secrecy and Boss Gossips. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

Telegraphic Secrecy and Boss Gossips. The Telegraphic Department seems all off its hinges. No sooner have I directed attention to one grievance than another falls directly in my way. I have lately animadverted strongly on the folly of the weather reports telegraphed by operators every morning, and have used straight language about the administrative iniquity, the " one shilling collect fines." This time, however, I have to draw atten tion to a serious public scandal, and a great public wrong. Every private telegram sent along the Govern ment wires is supposed to be held strictly secret, as between the Government, its officers, the sender and the reeeiver. There is an express contract to that effect in the clause of the Act which compels every servant of the Telegraph Department to sign a Declaration of Secrecy, subject to certain penalties at law. The Government is deliberately breaking faith with the people who do business at some of its tele graph stations. It is causing the sendi...

A Decoy Dressing Gown. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

A Decoy Dressing Gown. Saltbush, a wealthy squatter in the Never Never, recently paid a visit to Mackay, with Mrs. Saltbush, to whom he never denies anything, and whose whim is as a command to him. The two were walking up Sydney-street, Mackay, one evening, when Mrs. Saltbush's admiring regards were attracted by a beautiful dressing gown of great richness, design and quality—something quite too unusual for Mackay— which was hanging outside the door of one of the shops. Mrs. Saltbush examined it and at once told her husband that she felt that her existence would be incomplete without that dressing gown* Salt bush proposed to buy it, and Mrs. S. proceeded to interview the clothier. This is about what oc curred :— Mrs. Saltbush: " "What is the price of this dress ing gown ? " Mrs. Clothier: " Oh! that's not for sale." "Not for sale? " " No, that's my own personal property." " Have you any like it ? " "No, there 's nothing like that in Mackay. I bought that for myself at Finney &amp...

Adding Insult to Injury. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

—♦ . Adding Insult to Injury. There are inany men who are bitter enemies and staunch friends, who love and hate as they do every thing else—-with all their heart—and such men have a volcano of generosity under all their bitterness, they win our esteem even when they injure us most. But Griffith isn't that sort of a man. He has hundreds of enemies, thousands of followers, but he hasn't a single friend, simply because he is incapable of appreciating and reciprocating friend ship, he lacks the fellow-feeling which made even Satan hesitate ere he destroyed the happiness of Paradise. M'llwraith can count more friends on the Govern ment benches than Griffith can. Sam is followed for the spoils, but it is Tarn whom the House con siders the manliest man. | And being thus incapable of friendship, he has no generosity, no sympathy, no kindness of heart. He _ isn't content with stabbing an enemy, he turns the knife in the wound. He isn't content with knocking opponents down, he kicks them as t...

3s. 10d. a Week. We have a "Liberal" Government and a "Liberal" Premier, an assembly that is solid for " the working men,"a majority that has but to sit down on any thing it doesn't like to squeeze the breath out of it. And this Libera]" Premier of ours wouldn't do wrong for worlds; leastway not if he thought the people tumbled to it. . He wouldn't be so wicked as to overthrow the wrong that has a vested right to existhe wouldn't be so communistic as to strike at the fundamental principle of tyranny and injustice; he cannot outreason the reasoning—"it has been." At any rate, he can't when a poor <£5000-a-year and-expenses Governor is concerned, or when a starving £l000-a-year clerk is to be hurt or a .£500 a-y ear. h anger-on. Not much! That's not the sort of a chicken Sammy is. He wouldn't cut down the salary that was paid last year or fine a man out of a soft snap, if he knows himself.

Taxation and Spending. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 7 November 1885

Taxation and Spending. Members of the South Australian Assembly hare adopted a plan for reducing taxation -such as I have repeatedly urged upon our own Parliament. They iiave called a caucus to consider . the, Estimates, which are. being gone through line by line, every superfluous item being marked sa to be opposed to in committee. As the'caucus represents a substantial proportion of the House, there is every possibility of *the reductions being effected. Over One Hundred^ThousandlPoTinds will thus be saved to the taxpayers of South A US tralia. I have heard many objections to this independent action, but none which are worthy of the taxpayer s consideration, and ,as I take it; the taxpayer, who is the people, is the only claisis to be considered. It has been said that this is an insult to the Govern ment, that no self-respecting Premier would stand having the Estimates taken out of his hands, that it is his place to reduce expenses if they can be re duced, that changing them is eq...
