The Annexation Movement.

Quennsland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1883. The Hungerford-Clarke Matter. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 November 1883

*f Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done."* BRISBANE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1883. The Hungerford-Clarke Matter. PERCY "WALSH, a well-known Gulf man, considers that I have been too rough upon Hungerford in con nection with the death of poor Walter Clarke. Well, as Hungerford (or any other man) is just as entitled to have all the points favorable to him mentioned, as is the deceased Walter Clarke, I let Percy Walsh place before my readers his impressions of this very unpleasant matter. Percy Walsh saw Hungerford and Walter Clarke the evening before they started out upon that fatal expedition. They had (he says) their horses "on the other side of the Norman Eiver. I presume, there fore, it was at Normanton that Percy saw them. Clarke (says Percy) was going looking for country on behalf of some principal or principals, whereas Hungerford was searching for land on his own account. Still, they went as mates. Not long afterwards, Hungerford appeared back in No...

A hpuse occupied by a woman whose husband wis. away in the, bush on business, was forcibly entered recently by one of these ruffians. The woman luc^y escaped through the back: door to a neighbom*!s house, w;here sho re mained during that night, suifering from a succession - of fits induced by the fright she had;experienc^d. , The other case: was an apparent intention to violate a black gin.

France and China. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 November 1883

France and China. DIPLOMATIC negotiations are suspended between France and China, and things seem warming up for a row. France is aggressive and China' is cocky. The latter demands the complete evacuation by t^g French of Tonquin territory, and the exclusive con trol of the Bed River delta: China is willing to give France the southern part of-Anam. France has made a sort .of a. treaty with Anam, but has still the Black Flag's to contend against. - It is estimated that China, with its usual childlike and bland smile of deceit, has really taken part in the Tonquin war, and that' not less than 10,000 Chinese Ardops have been fighting against the French "there. At Canton, a force of 10,000 Chinese soldiers has been massed, in daily expectation of an attack by the French. The Black Flags forces have forti fied Backninh with Krupp guns, and this has led the French troops at present in Tonquin to defer their projected attack upon that place. A strong body of pirates is threatening the Fren...

Civil Service Co-operative Co. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 November 1883

V Gitil Service Co-operative Go. A correspondent appears to hate formed the im pression that I have been ,r posted up as to the a,ffairs of the Civil Service Co-operative Company by the party who got up the late stir." This idea is; entirely erroneous. I have never (until the letter I am now dealing with) received any communica-, tion whatsoever concerning the Civil Service Co-^ operative Co., nor have I spoken to any member of its affairs. My comments were simply the logical result of an analytical consideration of the reports given by the daily press of the " recent stir" and of the speeches made at the meetings held in refer ence to it. ; If those reports hb,ve beeninaccurate, or one sidedly brief, then, of course, the conclusions arrived at, though logically right as drawn from the pre mises available, may have had an erroneous tinge. My correspondent contrasts Seymour with Connah, very unfavorably to. the former. He asserts that, though Seymour was the loudest to cry out agains...
