" Room for the Leper." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 3 November 1883

"Room for the Leper."   QUEENSLAND is to be congratulated on her good luck in being all but free from the leprosy. That Bogantungan Chinaman turned out to be a measley fraud, and not a leper. There is one real leper up at Maytown, but old Confucius seems ready to take the   smitten Mongolian to his bosom. However, it isn't Queensland's fault that she can't boast of a few more lepers. It may be a special dispensation of Provi- dence. If it isn't that, why, then, "it's more by good   luck than good management." N. S. Wales hasn't got half as many Chinese as Queensland has, (now I'm not speaking by Census returns, but as wildly, as ever the Maryborough Chronic-hell does), and yet leprosy's got that colony "into chancery," and bids fair to make some un-   healthy trouble. For a long time past N. S. Wales has had three Chinese lepers in the Leper Hospital at Little Bay, and within the last few days, two more Chinese, terribly diseased w...

V.B.O. SPRING MEETING. TRY WIRE/1 MELBOURNE, Monday. | The great racing, carnival of Victoria-and, indeed, of Australia-commenced on Saturday last, Derby Day.

Sporting Gossip. THE Q.T.C. SPRING MEETING ANTICIPATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 November 1883

Sporting Gossip. THE Q.T.C. SPRING MEETING ANTICIPATIONS. [BY HERMIT.] Seldom, perhaps, liave the Q.T.C. carried out a meeting which opened under more favorable auspices than the one which commences to-morrow (Friday), and should the weather be pro pitious I can confidently predict that those who choose Eagle Farm for their holiday resort will be amply rewarded by the sport which, they will witness. If I may talre the betting.' market as a guide, the principal races nre of a particularly open; character, nearly all of those engaged being more or less backed,: The arrival of our new Governor is also, I fancy, a slice of good luck for the club, as his presence on the course will, no doubt, b£; the eause of many going there who would otherwise have stopped away. However, the races tliemselves are what I here mean to deal with, and, though, it is no easy matter to prophesy on this occasion, I shall give my readers the benefit of my opinions, which are founded on public running and prese...

Co.'s boat Gunga, between Normanton and Thursday Island, of a young man namedHill,reoentlyin the employment of Burns, Philp $ Co.* at Normanton. :. The relation of the circumstances as supplied to me,; undoubtedly placed the conduct of Captain Cater>-not Cato, as accidentally misspelt by me last week-in aa unfavorable light; being tantamount to a chargs that he did not use every available endeavonr to save young Hill's life. ^ , As was to be expected, jftOARO succeeded In raising a row over thie 7ejy unpleasant, and still.then little mentioned, matter.
