Deaf to Rightful Appeals. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

Deaf to BightM Appeals. NORTH Eockhamptpn has been howling for police protection qrer7 since > the removal of Constable Wttliams from the north shore of the Fitzroy, no policeman having ;been appointed ^ It is shameful that it can be said that a Queensland municipality (for; North Sockhampton .was made a corporate fagm the other day) is without a. single policeman t^rote.^ its law-abiding residents. The consequence**^;^ what might have bfeien expected-the municipality suffers under a chronic plague of drunken blackfellows and white rowdies, whose nightly orgies are of the most disgusting atid lawless character. . Yet thecentral police authorities | appear to care for noiie of these things and stubbornly turn a.deaf ear to the righteous demands of the law- j respecting portion of the North Bockhampton com-j munity. !

Score Another to " Figaro." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

Score Another to " Figaro." YES, scorer; pat down another point to FIGARO. I have earned it this way, - A couple of weeks ago, I published an article upon the new system of bounty immigrants' and the agreement made by the late Government with Gray, Dawes & Co. The dailies had .been up to their necks in acrimonious and profitless discussion as to who Gray* Dawes & Co. were or were not. I let that point quite alone, as being something of no moment, and as having been initiated by privatfc spleen and malevolence. I directcid myself solely, in considering the agreement, to points which affected the interests of the colony and the welfare of bounty immigrants. ! I found a serious blot in the agreement, and although I have been a general supporter of M'Hwraith, the in terests of Queensland were paramount. ; X exposed that blot. I pointed out that, under the agreement, the surgeons of these bounty .immigrant ships would be appointed by the extracting company and would each ...

THBRE was .no true bill filed against the prisoner, August Bleck, who was committed to be tried at the now-sitting Supreme Court, Brisbane, on a charge of haying murdered his wife, Cecilia Bleck. . Consequently, August was discharged. Never has the bungling inefficiency of the Police de partment of Brisbane been exhibited in stronger colors than in these proceedings against August Bleck. Cecilia Bleck was found murdered OQ the North Quay, Brisbane,. qn the 6th day of July, last, having been (according to the information in the possession of ou* omniscient police authorities) last seen alive on June ^tii^eleven^cUys before. Notwithstanding the complex machinclry at tiie command 6f the police department, the whole detective talent of the town lias been unable to discover where Cecilia Bleck spent any portion of that interval. She wab a notorious bad character and was known to be in the habit of consorting with well-known member...

The New-Chum Bobby in Distress. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

' < -+ The New-Chum Bobby in Distress. Hbbb isa> droll anecdote of one of the Brisbane " perlice." The other day, there might have beeii seen towards the northern end of the city (I don't designate more closely, because I don't want to get the constable into trouble), a policeman having a woman in custody. He was meandering-about in an uncer tain manner with his charge, and his eccentric move ments clearly pointed him out to be a new-chum, quite unacquainted-with the topography of the city. To every passer-by he would appeal in piteous accents -" Cud yez tell me th' way to th' lock-up, plaze ? " Very naturally, those accosted sheered off, being under the impression that the bobby, was up to. "|larx," or that he was suffering from a touch of the sun, although it wfes night-time. The woman was: fearfully and wonderfully drunk. At last, one son of. Belial pointed the policeman out: the direction in which he said he would find the lock-tup. - Off started the policeman up a...

I HAVE neither time npr space to enter into full particulars concerning a shameful piece of official, negligence, about which none of tlie metropolitan papers have had the savee or spunk to speak. I shall have to content myself with Outlining the bare facts of the case. The Nuddea,an ocean-goingsteamer carrying immigrants, entered Moreton Bay, came up the nyer, and actually moored off a city wharf on Wednesday morning without having been' boarded by a health officer. Not only this, but she remained five hours thus moored before a medical officer was sent onboard to examine the health of her passengers and. crew. She arrived off the wharf at 11 a.m., and Dr. Marks boarded her at 4 p.m. Then he reused to grant the vessel pratique. , ' The enormity of this official negligence is patent.; Although it costs the colony a large sum of money annually to maintai...
