HOW WE ARE COVERED. WEDNESDAY, Nov. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

HOW WE ARE COVERED. Wednesday, Nov. 11. The Appropriation Bill was first put through and sent up to the Council. _ Some time was then passed, at M'llwraitli's initiation, in again discussing the ■European Cable Monopoly, but no satisfactory solution was arrived at. The Premier then attempted to introduce the Justices Bill, a 400 clause one, but M'll wraith refused to consent, it being so late in the session, and the House accordingly adjourned at 4.30 -till 8.30 the same evening. It was nearly 10 however before the speaker resumed the chair and announced a Council's Amend ment to the Appropriation Bill, striking out the <£2000 item for Members' expenses. Billy Groom warned the House that the Upper Chamber was infringing " its rights and principles," and Sammy made a violent speech against the Council, concluding by moving that the House con sider the matter next day. M/Ibp-aith declared that the House had brought the conflict on itself by playing a mean trick on the other...

Tuesday, Nov. 17. Some discussion took place when the Speaker announced the election of Brown for Townsville. M'llwraith moved that leave of absence be granted him so that no smart Government lawyer might unseat him under the standing order declaring the seat vacant if a member absented himself for a whole session without leave. Sammy and Groom objected to the motion but yielded when they saw the Opposi tion were determined. : The report of the Joint Committee was then considered and accepted, the concurrence of the Assembly being announced. The dead-lock thus ended in the Defeat of the Council, who pass the Appropriation Bill as sent up. An address from both Houses was sent to Her Majesty asking that the Privy Councfl decide the question whether the Council have the right to a,mend Money Bills. Everything being thus happily settled, aud the 200 notes apiece feeing slaved, Sammy announced that Parliament would be prorogued on Thursday at noon, and the House adjourned till that time ...

On Saturday week, the Warra Provisional School children had a picnic. About fifty youngsters, and about the same number of adults, turned out and in dulged in the usual style of amusements suitable to such occasions. A procession in the evening, and formal dismissal at the school-house closed the pro ceedings. An impromptu dance was held in the evening at the school-house, by the adults, and was continued till midnight. The fair sex mustered in good force. Opinions as to belleship were divided, the champions on either side declaring between Miss Francis, daughter of the Schoolmaster, and Miss Best. I decline to say which was Best. Miss Francis was dressed in pink and white, and Miss Best in blue and white. A young- lady from Miles did great ex ecution, and, should any duels occur in the district, it should not bie diffieult to bring circumstantial evidence to bear on this point. A young iady from Toowoomba, another from theKogan, and two local belles were also culprits in this respe...

North of Us. Rockhampton. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

North of Us. by Peter Bunkum. Rockhampton. ,Tmtice: " Use every man after his desert, and who should escape whipping ?"—Shakespeare. Rockhampton's police magistrate must have studied this quotation, and evidently he believes it, for he always tempers justice with an abundant overflow of mercy, so much so, that it has become a terrible struggle for the traps to obtain a conviction. Faith, it's too bad that, afther all their throuble to captivate some bould thafe, at the risk of their lives and the destruction of their new uniform coat intoirely, the spalpeens walk out iv the dock with niver a stain on their charracker, and ony a grin on their villainous mugs. . Musha, but it's hard, and the ould P.M. would make a betther lawyer than a justice, thinks Pat, the coinmon policeman, and so does the grand Inspector/for Oribb's a janius at making an illigant excuse for the prisoner, and his enemies say," A. fellow-feeling makes him wondrous kind." Och ! if great Stuart could only change pla...

Got 'em Again. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

Got 'em Again. In the old days of the Ballarat gold field, there was a survey camp some six or seven miles from the diggings. The cook was an Irishman, who was a good performer on the flute, and also a great admirer of " Jim Hennessey." After a bit civ a sphree he was lying in his bunk, when the divil came to the door of the tent, and said to him, "you can't play the fiddle and you can't play the flute." You can't play jphe fiddle and you can't play the flute." " Begorra, I'll show you I can play the flute," says Pat. So lie ups and gives him, " The Hunter's Chorus." ThiB even did not seem to satisfy his Satanic Majesty for he chased Pat right into Ballarat, and to use Pat's own words, "Out of seven thousand tents on Ballarat, I ran slap into my brother's and I hadn't seen him for twenty years, and didn't know ho was in the country."

"Decided Side." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 21 November 1885

" Decided Side." During a recent visit of the Williamson, Garner Opera Company, in Brisbane, a young gentleman (?) made himself objectionable, by -hunting for his hand kerchief, and asked his neighbour if he had seen it. His neighbour naturally enough gave him a rather sharp answer; upon which the masher remarked, " You know I would not care so much, only I have twelve white ones, twelve blue ones, and twelve red ones, all silk, and losing this one spoils the set."

My Dearest Kittie,— There has been a sensation in this usually quiet town. The two Houses of Parliament have been at loggerheads, and the liberties of the people ! were at stake. Leastway, that's what Charley said; though since the form it took uieant the cessation of taxationj. I'd have been perfectly willing to have let Liberty roosted on its perch till it died there. As nearly as I can make out, the Asseihbly—an inferior sort of a House, composed of grocers, lucky diggers, and lawyers, but with the advantage of being elected by the peoj^f r-has, for several years, firmly believed that its services were worth ao many dollars a week.

—— -T- —;— . The New Chum Scores a Point. A party of gentlemen arrived at a station. On the evening of their arrival, while seated at dinner, one of their number thought to have some fun by chaffing a new chum engaged on the station. He commenced with, "."What sort of a donkey was that you were riding 'as we drove up this afternoon P" Part of N.C.'s work was to give a racehorse gentle exercise. The new chum deliberately put up his eye-glass, and drawled out, " Donkey! Ko donkey he-ah; at least, there was not yesterday" It is hardly necessary to add that the new chum was not made the victim of any more chaffing.
