William Henry Groom please Copy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

William Henry Groom pleaseCopy. Db. BLAND was &n English gentleman, educated* clever, and of good character. Formerly he was aa officer in H.M. army, and, under a gross and on warranted insult, fought a duel with a brother-officer, whom he brought down. Duelling was then, as now, illegal. Bland was,, tried, convicted, and transported to 2S". S»? Walee!*^ He served hiB sentence. ???;i:;">; Afterwards he made a pile, and became a respected representative man. Everybody sympathised with his misfortune, and never dreamt of classing him as a criminal. By-and-bye, Bland was proposed as a candidate for. > the Presidency of the Sydney University. Strong opposition was brought against him. . « Bob Lowe" (now Viscouiit Sherwood) made a. speech, in which he eulogised Bland as an honorable and accomplished gentleman, but added that it would not be fair to the undergraduates of the University to permit a taint upon the institution's record. Bland was a gentleman. He instantly ackno...

"I Told You So." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

I Told Tou 80." JUD&BB Lowell and Nelson, of the United States, 1 haveruled that the A<3t of Congress forbidding the] introduction of Chinese into the States, does not exclude Chinese born in Hongkong-these being British subjects,, ! This is a £oini that PIGABO has maintained over and over again. It is a patent truth. Yet, when ever I have raised it, while ventilating the Chinese Immigration question; it 3ias Either - l>een quietly ignored by people whocExmot analyse matters few themselves, or indignantly pooh-poohed by political partisans who sought temporarily to whitewash the Yellow Agony in order to play off the more effectively the Coolie scare. It is true that we are constantly extorting a iS10 polltax from Hongkong Chinese. Bat the mere fact that we aredoing this does not prove that we have a legal right to do it. The point has simply never been tested in the Supreme Court. There is no. doubt, however, that, before long, it most be tested, viewing the an...

Ratting and Political Success. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 November 1883

Ratting and Political Success. Onb of the chiefly-used arguments in favor of Groom's elevation to the Speakership was that, for 22 years, he had found one constituency-that of Too* woomba-to return himto Parliament. Such an argument is valueless on the face of it. Experience does not bear out the truth of the theory that, aii ^interrupted return to Parliament for a number of years by one constituency is the sign of a valuable politician. There are such things as pocket boroughs, that retUrn^omsbever the owner of the " pocket " chooses to nominate. As the old adage has it respecting tne! electors of such constituencies " They would vote for the devil if they got the regular domination." The grandest statesmen Great Britain ever pro duced Suave constantly been compelled to change their constituencies and have heen frequently re jected by electorates after haying represented the same lor a term; while noodled nonentities have continued placidly on as recognised members each for his own...

China and France. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

China and France. THINGS look uglier than ever between the Celestial Empire and the Republic of France. Marquis Tseng, Chinese Ambassador to England, and who has been doing the diplomatic business with France, is reported to have said that an advance by the French "upon Bacninh-now said to be garrisoned by 10,000 troops -would be regarded as a casus belli by China. Well, M. Ferry expects that to take place almost im mediately. Marquis Tseng says that 30,000 Chinese regular troops, under European officers, are within easy marching distance of the. French positions. France, the other day, despatched 900 more troops, " but what are they among sp many ? " Conundrum -Will the Frog swallow the Pigtail, or will the Pig tail switch off the Frog ? . By latest advices, war between the two countries would seem to be inevitable. It is alleged that the existence of a treaty between China and the Black Flags has been discovered. The Emperor of China has formally proclaimed Anam to be a vassal Sta...

JL North Queensland Bobadil.
