Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

Football. THAT re-union of the Excelsiors was the happiest thing of the kind I hare known for "years. Whoever the promoters were, whether it came from the members, of the club or received its origin from outsiders, nothing came in the way of its being a success. Sandgate was wisely chosen as a rendezvous, for, .be sides the jolly trip per rail, there was ample enjoyment in the strolling round the shores, and the greatest of fun in sea-bath ing. By 1.45 the majority of the fellows left town, and having apparently set their minds upon mirth and pleasure, they com menced the entertainment by singing, both solo and chorus from first to last. Arrived at Sandgate the vacant piece of ground adjoining the station was turned into a football field and sides being chosen,- an impromptu game of an entirely original description was commenced. A little of the Rugby talent has found its way into Excelsior bosom, for the Mel bourne laws weie discarded, each and all .-evidently going in for rules th...

The Demon Drink. (THE HISTORY OF A MURDERER'S FAMILY.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

The Demon Drink. (THE HISTORY OF A MUBDERER'S FAMILY.) I am not a teetotaller. Nor do I cant and talk platitude^. My mission is to supply you with facts and to let you do your sermonising for yourself. Listen to an awful story in which '. Horrors upon horrors'head accumulate." I'm not certain of the exactness of the quotation, but I can vouch for tlie horrors. I tell you honestly before I start that this tale is. true in every essential particular. All I am going to relate occurred in Queensland-most of it in Bris bane-and hundreds of my readers will remember the facts by the aid of their own memories. A few years ago there lived at Ipswich and then afterwards removed to Brisbane, a family by the name of M'Mahon. At the time I speak of, the father of the family was a respectable, hard-working, sober mechanic. His wife was also a 'respectable hard-working and sober housewife. This worthy and industrious couple had two sons and a daughter. Their home was happy. Their lives were peacef...

Journalistic Flabbiness. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

; ' Journalistic Flabfoiness. - There tis nothing in dail^ joimialism that I know which presents suet a lamentable spectacle as a jellyfish newspaper. It isn't within ihe realm of common-sense that a paper can have no politics. 'The.position istoo absurd. Unlessthe paper hive noi&easat all. Politics are the vital divans of the community, and any newspaper that claims to have a mission and to cater for the community must have defined views of some sort, and ought not to fee afraid to .declare them boldly . . If a journalisttihttdly plays see-sa'w with his paper, he can never hope to command attention. People may tegatd such actions with a curious sort of amusement for a time, and wonder which way the frog will ^ttmp "next, but SttCh a feeling must befotfr long give way to disgust and contempt. v .?

Demon Drink. Kellett and Sabbath-Breaking. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

Demon Drink. Kellett and Sabbath-Breaking. A great deal of fuss has been made about the re fusal to give Mr. Kellett, M.L.A., for Stanley, a special train, in order that he might go. electioneer ing on Sunday. The Telegraph is, of course, the chief howler. There is no pleasing some people. If a Minister allows a special train on the Sabbath, the holy finger of righteous deprecation is pointed at him and he is hounded down as sacrilegious. If he refuses a special train, then he is unfair. Of course, it really amounts to this-a dog must bay the moon, whether it is a full moon or a new moon. In order to place the real facts of this alleged Kellett grievance before my readers, I will simply quote Albert Norton's own written instructions to the Acting Commissioner of his Department. The Telegraph has not quoted Norton's letter, but, for sly reasons of its own, has quoted a letter from a depart mental officer, as being more suited to purposes of misrepresentation. Here is Norton's OW£L le...

Quarterly Stoct-Taking. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 6 October 1883

Quarterly Stoct-Taking. j,;. A GLANCE at the Revenue /Returns just published must please the public. The yesujts found by an ex amination of the State jedgerprove indubitably what an able financial Administration can effect to the ad vantage of 'the colony, . Ail artful dodger, whose t6rm of office was just about* to .expire, might have so mismanaged the colony's resources as to present .a balance-sheet to his. successor, that would fill the latter with alarm and consternation. , M'llwraith is in the . proud position of handing | over a very large surplus to Griffith. In " show " j parlance, Mac. gives Sam a good send off," and it will be Sain's fault if the colony comes to financial grief. The total amount of revenue proper for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 1883, has been the very satisfactory amount of £709,0tf9 19s. 10d., or an increase, as compared with the corresponding quarter in 1882, of £59,886 14s. 4d.
