Notes on Currant Events. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 22 September 1880

Notes on Currant Events. WE ore indebted to the Sydney Bulletin for severU of the following pan. The Northern Argue describe! clause 60 of the Divisional Boards Act es a " maiee," to which thai of Haedalus was a plain country road. They have 46 justices of the peaoe on tbe Rockhampton roster, but even with this crowd the business of the Court has ft0rot times to be poitponed. " Oh yes, I know what Palmam jut meruit feral means," said one of our outsiders the other day, " Griffith uses the quotation in the House after Douglas ha* pitched into die Colonial Secretary-' That's one for Palmer, the bear.'" Last week the Cooktown Courier was abusing the Catholics for playing for rain. This week it has a religious article nearly aa long and quite as milky as a hard-dell Baptist sermon. It seems the editor had to apologise for bis rough treatment of tbe religionists, who withdrew their subscriptions to the paper, and induced the proprietor to compel the editorto eat hnmble pie.

Parliamentary Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 22 September 1880

Parliamentary Opinions. FRAGMENTS of a conversation carried on under the verandah of a private bouse at Blackali. Tile questioner is a stranger lately arrived from Cape Colony; the answerer is a station manager. The conversation is net a private one, and in our easy chair we make shorthand notes by moonlight. This is what the transcription gives us : What» your Queensland Parliament ? A crowd-the usual sort of men, principally lawyers, who meet together for Uie purpose of legislating for tbeir country. How do they set about it 1 By choosing sides and abusing each other after dinner every day. What sort of persons generally compose the Parliament? As I Baid before it is composed principally of lawyers and other fellows who possess the "gift of the gab," a few who can't make a speech but can write a big cheque, and a lot of duffers who only got into Parliament be cause better men would not acccpt a seat. Are the Members gentlemen ? They think so themselves. But judging from specimens ...

Philanthropy and Humbug. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 22 September 1880

Philanthropy and Humbug. BY A GENUINE HUM.   I AM a humanitarian; that's what I am. I   am a member for the society for the preven- tion of cruelty to animals. If a man shuts up cattle in a yard for a day without food and water, I'm down on him like a thousand of bricks, though I can impale a frog alive on a fish book without remorse. I love my black brethren in the Never Never, and though I never subscribed a pound to buy them blankets, I wouldn't mind paying £6   to prosecute a native police officer for ille- gally dispersing a mob of murderers. I don't own any land in the outside districts, but if I did I shouldn't care, because the blacks   couldn't hurt or destroy or take away the land; and if they rob a station or murder a few shepherds, what is that to me? I own   plenty of property near Brisbane. I suppose that belonged to the blacks once upon a time. I think I paid ten shillings an acre for it years ago. It is...

Vila tine literii mart at. BLACKALL, WEDNESW^SEPTEMBER 29,1880. Mn. BLUNHKLL enjoys the reputation of being an observant traveller, who has acquired much useful information dur ing a tour in other oountries and colonics. He tnade a very great mistake, however, when he referred to the war in Mew Zealand, to snpport his argument that volunteers were preferable to trained I soldiers in actual warfare. "Against the Haorics,' who wen: very bravo enemies, the drilled military shelve#? themselves exceedingly inefficient, and ho wag ashamed to say, were on many occasions beaten ; but the volunteers | e»v»fwl tbercnelveB w.'tii glory." This is the remark Mr, Bmjndf.u, made, and we are only sorry thnt no other Member in tbe 'House w,as nhlc to contradict a statement which is uticrly false. The people of Queensland caiwotbe cxpccted to exhibit much interest in the history of a war which Las been so long a memory of the past, bat in justice to the brave men who fought and bled in that campaign,...
