The Brisbane Girls' Grammar School. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

The Brisbane Girls' Grammar School. Dear Figaro,—Noticing your reeent article re the Brisbane Girls' Grammar School, as an old Grammar School pupil I can corroborate all your statements, both as to reports (I used to get "Good" regularly for singing, although I never once attended the class) and the cramming. Anybody can tell a girl who has been trained from the beginning at the Gram mar School, and a scholarship girl from the Normal or State Schools. The latter are always the bright girls. If you wish to give a girl a good sound edu cation, send her to a public School. The Grammar School may be well enough for accomplishments— some of which, by the way; are not very elegant— but not for a useful education. An OLD <*B&M3£AB.6CHOOMTB

The Climate. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

The Climate. i It must be the climate, the young man said, When he came home drunk and stood on his head. It must be the climate, the young maid cried, When she flew with the broom from his mother's side. It must be the climate, the husband whined, Who, for beating his wife, a pound was fined. Then, everything wrong beneath this sun And everything left, or not well done, Can be excused by the simple plan Of blaming the climate, not the man.

ROUNDABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

Notice to tie Puhliot—Please to note my time of Publishing s 9 a.m. every Friday. A horse at Rockhamptcn recently had its leg broken by a stone thrown by a boy, and had to be destroyed. So it was, by a crowd who shot and tomahawked the unfortunate animal to death; a ease of the most thorough destruction. On the subject, says Inspector Galbraith:—"Constable Hennessy did not fire at the horse, which had its leg broken on Saturday.^ ^ The shooting and. tomahawking was done by civilians, and the policeman was only there to see the animal killed properly." If to do that was Hennes&y's sole business there, it may be asked, why the dickens didn't he do it ? "DdlyaIillla" writes:—"Dear Fig.—You are not as Well off in Brisbane- as we are. Any person getting six days in the lock-up, without the option of a fine, can get out the next morning, if he has a J.P. to enquire about him. A case lately tried at Mitchell turned out. as above."

Ructions at Banana. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

It happened thus wise, and I record the narrative aB a lesson to residents of bush-towns to respect the authority of the " lower/' Fred Johnson keeps a hotel at Banana, He had Che unblushing impudence the other day to quarrel with Senior Constable Gluckin. Next he was so in discreet as to get tight. The Senior Constable, in the exercise of a noble " dooty," sailed in and floored his man, handcuffing him, with the assistance of a subordinate, A sailor, who has unaccountably got so far inland as Banana, with the recklessness of his calling, splodged into the row, and something very like a free fight ensued. At any rate, by the aid of revolvers, &c., five men were arrested and marched to the look-up, while all the rest of the male adults in Banana, were hiding away for fear they might be called on " in the Queen's name/' I There is a yarn about one o...

Swinger, brought about the seizure of the Forest King, and all,the sub sequent fuss, together tdth thei comparative ruin in - mind, body and estate, of Sam Hodgson—a pioneer colonist—has been the subject of much virulent animadversion in the House during; the past few : days., .

BRISBANE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1885. What all the Talk lias Come to. Our precious talking shop is shut up at last, after an innings of overnineteen weeks. And what has been the p^tcome <)f 'these nineteen weeks solid talk ? The men frhodid the talking have voted them selves asumof ^200 eaibh as a slight reward for their unparallelled exertion. • But what have they done for the country—for you -and me?

They passed an Act to Amend the Land Act of last session—to rectify the blunder that Ministers made when they availed themselves of their muzzled majority to abolish selection before survey {the greatest boon the Australian selector ever got ,* and hadn't he to fight for it in the old times, too P) when they were not prepared to carry out survey before . selection. 2nd and 3rd.

A Sudden Collapse. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

A Sudden Collapse. Last week the Legislative Council of Queensland was too big for its boots. This week it has shrunk into them so completely that nothing is visible of the valiant Councillors, and only a faint whimper of defiance is heard from Murray-Prior. Well, Figaeo, for one, is not sorry that they have committed political suicide j though, for the honor of the colony; they might have done it in a more diginified manner, and met thejr fate at the hands of their enemies like men, instead of putting an end to their own existence in a state of blue funk. It is bad enough for an intelligent people to be bossed by such a erowd as Sam and his followers, but the idea of being ruled by 6uch a House as our Legislative Council is too absurd to be entertained by any one. Queensland .can console herself for the present misfortunes by reflecting that Sam and his colleagues can be kicked out at the nextgeneral election as they certainly will be; and it is not so very long to wait. True, the ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

. A, BAnana man sends this yarn:—A very amusinp affair occurred here the other day. Our newchum policeman had to take a prisoner to Rockhampton, and on returning home he was bz-inging, a Govern ment police horse for use at this station, together with the horse that the prisoner rode dowh. Wt'li, not being a good horseman, the two spare nags gave him trouble by separating. A happy thought struck him, he tied them together and all went well until he reached within four (4) miles of Banana when one horse took one side of a tree and the other horse the other pide, of course the result may be better im agined than described, the smallest horse of the two being the victim—breaking his neck—on arrival in town the senior constable asked him, "Well, how did you get on," when he replied, that sure he had had a great scalding, ah ! yes. " Sure one of the horses is dead." " Ho»v is "that ?" Well, faix, I don't know, but sure coming along he (the horse) lets out a terrible moan and curls up like...

The Townsville Election. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

The Townsville Election. All sorts of-wire-pulling were resorted to over the Townsville election, but E. K. Eussell sustained a crushing defeat nevertheless. The fact is that the North is solid against Sam Griffith. It was wheedled to an enormous extent at the last general elections, but Queen-street instinets can never desert the programme of unfairly pitting Queen-street against the rest of the colony, and such a programme is bound to cause revulsions of feeling. Hence the Griffith party has been, in the North, its own Nemesis. Amongst other pressures brought to bear upon the late election, a Townsvilie gentleman,whom I understand to be a past-master of thejL.O. Society, received the following telegram from Brisbane:— '•Confidently rely oh your support for the Liberal candidate. Advise others/' This presumptuous wire was signed "A. Rutledge," and is naturally supposed to have emanated from the Attorney-General. It was treated with contempt and circulated pretty freely. Says a corr...

Reconstruction of the Ministry. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

Reconstruction of the Ministry. I hear that Billy Miles is overworked, that the task of editing the Telegraph, supervising the Royal Bank, managing his stations, administering the Works Department, surveying all the new railways, receiving deputations, and bossing the Ministry is more than he can manage singlehanded. Whisky has been tried as a stimulus, biit the ' results were not satisfactory. He is overworked and must give up something, and he has determined to retire from the Works. Queensland is to lose its only capable and incorruptible Minister for Works. This is bad. .With Billy, the hopes of Queensland will perish. No more railways will be made by day labor, no more contracts given without competition, no more •free passes issued by nobody knows who. The Gov-, ernment stroke may even be abolished. Queensland will no longer be distinguished from other civilised countries by the manner in which its works are managed. The friends of the Ministry will perhaps . get no fatter tha...
