The Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

The Wheels. a The bicyclist's pic-nic atNudgee was a real "bully affair, ^and tlie only thing that tried to play against it was the weather, hilt even that was euchred ; for all the clouds could do after 2 p.m. . was to loot ugly and frown, so that ho*one-was hurt by it in the least, "except "those who were too chicken-hearted to venture. There was no order observed on the run down, or in the uni forms. The old story, but the excuse this timers that it was not a club meet, and, therefore, any one could go'as he liked. Only about half-a-dozen "liked" to turn up at the Bridge at - the appointed time, and they didn't seem to'care much abbut going,. and tno wonder, for .there was a lot of mud to wade through between there and Nudgee. _ However, there was lots of fun, and what with sundry spurts amongst themselves and plenty of chaff between them, the "Drag" and a sociable full of our fairest ones, the ride down .fras more than lively. You ask Herb Perry. When he crawled outside the heap...

Ebenezer Thorne as usual. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 October 1883

Ebeiiezer Thorne as usual. EBENEZER Thobne is one of those smart hyp-ahem! smart men. who sometimes overreach themselves. . Some months ago, a weekly paper called the Tribune, was started in Brisbane That paper was founded by a number of? enthusiasts who prided themselves upon their theories of ad vanced thought, protection, &c. It was started to air their ! particular views, to support their notions. By way of ensuring sufficient commercial vitality to the paper, a number of believers in these ideas gave a guarantee that they would advertise in its columns for a certain period. By-and-bye the Tribune got into difficulties; The committee of management squabbled. Finally, a majority of that com mittee sold the paper to Ebenezer Thome. Ebby, finding that he held guarantees of standing advertise ments to a certain amount, immediately slewed the politics and the mission of the Tribune, to suit the cause he was then tem porarily advocating-which cause (it is unnecessary for me to...

Kidnapping Keppel Island Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

» Kidnapping Keppel Island Blacks. I HAVE before me an indignant letter from a cor respondent, whose communication certainly bears upon its face the stamp of genuineness. Not only does he give me his name and address, but he gives me Yeppoon and Brisbane references, as proofs of his respectability and reliability. I have no cause, there fore, to suspect his communication to be untrue, or even exaggerated. If his tale be a correct represent ation of facts, the unfeeling cruelties he describes deserve full exposure. FIGABO is always at the disposal of any bona fide exposure of wrongs, or ventilator of grievances. Here is what my correspondent tells me : A well-known Bockhampton man has taken upon himself the responsibility of having kidnapped seven aboriginals from Keppel Island, because they, he alleged, interfered with the sheep that had been in troduced on the said island. These seven Keppel Island natives were forcibly placed in a cutter, and taken over to Teppoon. Their gins and ...

The Courier on "Sweeps." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

.. . .... + The Courier 011 "Sweeps THAT very " proper " daily paper the Brisbane Courier has a declamatory leader against the im morality of racing "sweeps." So violent has its virtuous spasm been this time, that the Courier leader has actually culminated in a prayer that more evil might be done by these "sweeps-pro moters, in the yearning that good might follow! Yes, the Courier has deliberately prayed that; more <f sweep "-promoters may levant and cheat the con fiding public out of sovereigns, in the hope that the public may thus become disillusionised! In its final convulsion of prayerful indignation, the Courier says If they (the bookmakers) would do so (i.e., levant with the money subscribed!) the public might learn at lost that it would be just as sensible a proceeding to stake their money on the integrity of the worst criminal in St. Helena as it is to trust the-cash to the core of any " sweep " promoter who invites the contributions of the credulous simpletons on...

Jack Skuthorpe. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 27 October 1883

Jack Skuthorpc. THE guileless Jack Skuthorpe passed through Brisbane last week, in company with his Wash ington hatchet. He came down the line from the Downs. His native modesty prompted him to lay very low during the few hours that he stayed in Brisbane. Ingenuous Jack Skuthorpe has a horror of any public demonstrations. He seeks not the bubble reputation at the cannon's mouth, so to speak. His own mouth is sufficient to ensure him all the fame-nay, all the notoriety even-that a man of his modesty is capable of digesting in an ordinary life-time. Well, Jack " hung out" at the Metropolitan-or, rather, hung in, very much "in." I made an at tempt to board him. I affected all the enthusiasm of an explorer and an antiquary upon him to no pur pose. He fought very shy of "those relics." I even underwent martyrdom, to the extent of alcoholising my never-touch-it stomach, in the vain attempt to break down Ids guard. But the relics were hidden securely away in the mountain fast nesses of the...
