A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Studen'. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

The Raven. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

The Raven. NICHOLAS WALPOLE RAVEN is the name fef the mad brained mule who had the folly to oppose Samuel Walker Griffith, the Premier, for North Brisbane. Few people ever heard of Raven before, and those few only regarded him as a weak-in-the-head eccentric upon whom it Was easy to play practical jokes. Nicholas was perhaps the only serious man in this farce. His proposers were not serious, every one thought that he would retire at the last moment, and those who did vote for him did so more as a lark than anything else.' The getters-up of this contest thought the joke was worth £20. Well, they have had it and paid for it. They also have had the mean satisfaction of putting Griffith to great unnecessary expense. Had the election been worked on solid grounds, some indi cation of the strength of M'llwrathians in the city might have been obtained, but for any other purpose a contest would have been of no avail. As it is, I know a dozen or two M'llwraithians myself, who, to enter a prot...

A Wise P.M. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

A Wise P.M. A jtawatta named Alley at Rockhampton was fight ing with some countrymen the other day, when he was interfered with by Constable King. Alley thereupon " went for " the constable, #hb tried then to arreBt him. Alley next drew a sheath-knife and there was big trouble, biit King managed' to overpower the kanaka. The sapient Police Magistrate of Bock hainpton discharged the kanaka. These Polynesians axe bad enough in all conscience at Bocknampton, without being magisterially protected in their violenoe and cockiness. Some of these days, one of them may cany out the favorite present threat of kanakas to. " kill 'um b--. white man all same like 'am Tanna man kill Captain Ambrym." If the Bench thus fails in its duty, white men most take the law into their own hands. And then what a howl of virtuous indignation there will be I -?
