The Musical Union Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

The Musical Union Concert* 'Judas M^ccabssus " was produced by the Union on the 11th, in the presence of a select appreciative audience. It had been naturally expected that a gj^ter number of vocalists would have turned up at the rendering of an oratorio so well known and liked as "Judas" is. Various prominent Union vocalists, however, honored the performance with their presence --amongst the audience! and the voeai- work was left. to. a hardworking' group who are always faithful to their duty. The instruments were in full strength, indeed, the. Union orchestra has. for long been its strongest branch. " Judas". was well delivered, and the vocalists generally . deserve a very fair word of ^ praise, Mrs. Xelk, ever , careful and conscientious songtress, was in. her usual , place; and acquitted herself well. " So shall the lute and harp awake/'was sung by her with a graceful clearness fend accuracy of intonation which compelled warm applause. Mrs. Snow, a great, acquisition -to* the Un...

Digging up Dead Acts. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

Digging up Dead Acts. OHABTBBS Towers was. the lively northern town in which a solicitor (W. P. Morgan) exhumed on unrepealed Act of Edward. III. for the benefit of ThaddeuB O'Kane. Well*. Charters Towers has again distinguished itself in the same line. R. Long and J. M.Oarrol have been litigating for some time past over the possession of the Ana Branch hotel, 12 miles out of Charters Towers. " Dicky'' Long, who had little Milford for his lawyer* got oat $> warrant under an old Act of Richard ill (of pious and kingdom-for-a-horBe memory) and had Carroll brought the 12 miles in the custody of the police. I believe the Act in question is called the Speedy Recovery of Tenements Act. Anyway, Carrol was charged with forcible entry into " Dicky" Long's premises, and, despite of Marsland's legal assistance, was duly committed for trial at the next Circuit Court, bail being allowed;, defendant in JB40 and two sureties of £20 each. Here endeth. now my eong , Of Charters Towers Court, The ...

Annexation Inevitable. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

» '. Annexation Inevitable. So, New Guinea is being annexed despite the hesitancy of Gladstone, aiid Derby; (And I even might add, despite the^ thundering ravings of Cowli shaw's unpatriotic paper, the Telegraph.} Captain Armit has reported, and Missionary Chalmers has confuted the report, that Goldie and j Cameron, representing a syndicate, have " bought" (save the mark!) 15,000 acres of good sugar land in the Kabadi district foir £70 worth of trade. This "purchase?* is, of course a. very shady and bogus transaction. The chiefs who sold the land had no right and title to it. The real owners knew nothing of the, transaction, and did not know what exchange the £70 worth of trade represented. So long as neither. Queensland, nor any other British dljiendency, nor Q-reat, Britain itself, has annexed New Guinea, British authorities iiave no legal jwwer to interfere with puch iniquitous transac tion asthlsbneof Goldie and Cameron's. The title to the land will have to be fought for by the ...

The Bland Book Agent. There once, it may seem strange to yon, - bid live a cute book-agent, who, Though, like bis genus, pushing quite, - : ; Was. most obsequiously polite. He always had a tender thought For those whose patronage lie sought. And so considerate was he, He was quite an anomsilee! One morning he came' up my stair. And viewed me in myofflce there- . . Now here, en passant, I most say Book-pedlars constantly Islay! If they come on me unawares, I alwayspitch them down my- stairs, I kill outright each peddling fetter, And then I burn him in mycellar. . Well, as I said, he came-up stairs, ... This agent with the courteous airs, . Walked in quite oonfldent-and bold. . : (The morning it was very cold.) , No door he shut behind his stride, . He left my door, sir, opened wide, Which, seemed a sort of outrlpageant On part any bookish agent. , I stared on; this unusnal scene, Then yelled out, "Now, sir, what d'yer mean, By letting cold my room hare scope in, And leaving thus my d...

Three Men Hanged. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

Three Men Hanged. Horror! Uprises now a hideous tack, A ghastly structure hued in dismal black, Bepellant, grisly, grim phantasmascope, And, see ! from crossbeam there depends a rope! A rope uncanny, with suggestive noose . And frightful slipknot meant fordeadly use. Grim goblin of. the law's decisive breath, Thou'it saturated with the blood of;death! Thott*rt merciless when thy fierce fingers have hold, Thou murder-haunted, malefactors* scaffold! There's nought of soft'ning grace thy nature hollows,?

We know by our , timepieces that the sun rose some two hours ago, but not a sign of his presence is visible to our senises. Nature is dissolved in a downhearted drizzle.

'' Fear God; Speak evil of none,* Stick to the Truthj and never be dome." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20,1883. Incapable Police. I HAVE frequently drawn attention to the incom-. petency of our police, and every day affords me fresh proof of the truth of my assertions. Indeed, so glaring and frequent are the miscarriages of justice becoming, that I think of keeping a column open every week, for the express purpose of detailing' Undiscovered Crimes, or exposing cases in which the law not only fails to protect the law-abiding citizen, but actually assists to persecute and harass him. I would wager any reasonable amount that, did I keep such a column constantly .open, not a week .would pass by but FIGABO would find plenty of material to dump into it. # # On this occasion, I will not dip into various criminal incidents that have occurred recently and of which the public has hot even heard, but I will con tent myself with one single illustration of Gross Perversion of Justice, hoping that...

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly boilers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly boilers,$ As if they were the world's controllers." --Barnabt. BY far the most important item in cricket this week was the meeting of the delegates called for Monday evening at Sheridan's Cricket Depot. Out of a possible 22, there were 21 delegates present; the One Mile representative, Mr. A. H. "White, being unable to attend ^through ill-health. Messrs. J. C. Beal and J. E. White, vice-presidents, also attended. In feet, in feeble imitation of the grand, majestic utterances of the "Fishwife" we may state that the meeting was "packed." With all due respect for the feelings of the antediluvian production, I feel bound to .express a strong opinion in favor of such " packings." The annual meeting was packed in having about 150 gentlemen present, every one of whom was qualified by the rules of the association to attend and have a voice in the affairs of that meeting. Special objection seems to have been taken by the gentlemen who last season ruled (cricke...
