A Premium on Prostitution. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

A Premium on Prostitution. Pbom a Maryborough paper - The C.P.S. of Bimdaberg has instituted a prosecution against , a young woman, daughter of a Maryborough resident, for giving a false declaration of her ago. On giving harcorreot age to Ihe C.P.S., he refused to unite her to her lover without the written consent of her parents. , The bridegroom induced, the young woman to go, to a clergyman and get married, which, theydid, the bride stating she was 21 years of age.

Trial of "Mean White" Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

Trial of "Mean White" Labor. THE experiment of trying " mean white " labor in the sugar-ciane field has been made at Mackay, and has turned out to be an egregious failure. A gang of 25 immigrants was engaged, each man under a three months' agreement, and to be paid at the rate of 15/ per week. These immigrants were set to work planting cane. They just stopped until the first pay day came and then they all *' clearocL" This is a fact. These immigrants worked steadily on until the first pay-Saturday. They received their cheques on the Saturday afternoon, and, on the follow ing Monday, not a single one of the 25 turned up to work. The manager of the plantation didn't bother trying to look for them. He said that any attempt to legally enforce the fulfilment of the three months' agreement would involve more time and money than the " mean whites " were worth, as (he added) they did not do their work either as quickly or as well as the colored laborers employed on neighboring plantations. ...

White Elephant Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

WliiteMephant Egypt GENERAL HICKS, a British commander, and a force of 10,000 regular Egyptian troops, who had advanced into the Soudan country against El Mahdi, the "False Prophet," have been annihilated by an overwhelming force-estimated at 300,000-of El Mahdi's followers. They were betrayed by a treacherous guide into a waterless defile, where, they fell i into an ambuscade. General Hicks was unable to use his guns. He formed his army into a hollow square,.and they resisted the enemy for three days. On the fourth, they succumbed .from thirst and were all butchered, except some 150 who were taken prisioners. The Governor of the Soudan was killed. The only escapees from this terrible carnage were a German artist, and a news* paper correspondent named O'Donovan-probably, " O'Donovan, the hero of ifferv." This disaster must influence England's policy with regard to Egypt. It has postponed the evacuation of the country by the British troops at present stationed there. Admiral Sir Will...

Tramways. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 1 December 1883

AT last Brisbane is likely to depart&om its pre&entr jumbled condition of traffic and to reap the ben^fit^ derivable from a network oftramways. After various sbelvings, tlie bity Councilhas got 90 far aB to place it on record that it is of opinion |h»tr:the interests of the public will be pjromdtedf J^y' the adoption of tramway communication in Brisbane and the suburbs, but that it is inexpedient that the Council should construct such tramways. ; I a congratulate our City Fathers upon at last having brought theirwranglingsin this matter to a bead, and I believe it to be the right head. JThpre/ are many reasons why it would be inexpedient fori the City Council toconstructandmariage tramways, but, as the point, is apparently settled, it would be useless to reiterate them; V The benefits the travelling., public must receive from .tramways are also 1 too; patent to need recap itulation.

-- V T^ Mem. for the Post Office. COMPLAINTS art« chronic amongst my subscribers that FIGARO is continually miscarrying and fails to reach its destination. Now, there is no laxity on the part of my publishers, Messrs. Gordon & Gotch, who forward every issue to every subscriber with clock work regularity. The fault, therefore, rests with the Post Office. I am forced to the conclusion that there are Post Office officials who are either too badly paid, or else are too mean, to buy FIGARO, but who cannot resist the temptation to steal it.
