Blackbirdiiig with few Firearms. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 December 1883

Blackbirdiiig with few^ I hare heard a great many opinions expressed to the effect that the new regulation with respect to the quantity of firearms to be permitted on labor vessels, will have the effect of checking (some aver, of stopping altogether!) the Labor Trade. I cannot see it. In my opinion, the only result will be to make the Islands hotter and more dangerous for white men visiting them. ? At present, returning kanakas, whose ambition is, nearly in every case, to possess firearms, spend in Queensland the money they receive at the end of their term of service. The result of the new regula tion will simply be to put a stop to this. The " boys " will insist upon taking their hard cash with them. Kanakas are wide-awake fellows enough, and they have the savee to know that if they have good British money to offer in return for Sniders, they can soon create a brisk trade in firearms and ammu nition from Fiji, New Caledonia, and other depots." If the "boys" don't know this, their C...

Sir Thomas M'Ilwraith Interviewed. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 December 1883

Sir Thomas M'llwraith Interviewed. IN consequence of a widely-random article in the Rockhampton Bulletin, a short-lived impression (since dissipated by flat and authoritative contradiction) got abroad that Sir Thomas M* II wraith was leaving the colony for ever, presumedly in disgust at the turn that politics had taken. When I read the Rockhampton Bulletin's article, I sought and obtained an interview with Sir Thomas, in order to personally ascertain his inj^ntions respecting his visit to the Old Country. <J?he conversation at that interview was as follows - Is there any truth, Sh* Thomas, in this article pub lished by the Rockhampton Bulletin to the effect that it is likely that you are now taking a final leave of Queensland ?-Not the slightest. Then you have no intention of transferring your business to j&e Old Country ?-None whatever. -Nor of filtering the arena of Imperial politics, d la Bob Lowe ?-No. All that is imaginary on the part of the Rockhampton Bulle...

Police and Magisterial Tyranny. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 December 1883

- -4, -- _ Police and Magisterial Tyranny." There is nothing like Justices'Justice and police pettifogging, especially in country townships. A good yarn, illustrating this, comes from St. Lawrence. A man was summoned for cruelty to animals, his offence being that he turned his bullocks out at night with their yokes on. The day the case was set down for hearing, there was no Magistrate available to adjudicate upon it. The man who had been sum moned, knowing that there could be no court, did not attend. Thereupon, the police had a warrant issued, arrested the man and lodged him in durance vile. Mind you! The case had never been called on, so that the police could not say that the summoned man had not attended. Afterwards, when the case was heard, the defen dant was fined <£3. It was proved in evidence that he was a kind man to his bullocks, which showed not a single whip-mark upon them. It was also de posed (and my bush readers will at once admit the truth of the statement)...

He Followed the Specifications. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 December 1883

He Followed tlie Specifications. THE most conscientious Overseer of Works ,in the Government service is a man named M'Lennan, and don't you forget it. One of the last jobs that he had to supervise;was the construction of ja Government darn at Winton. And faithfully he did his work, and don't you forget it. The contractor wasn't a Babbage ,at calculations, but, for all that, he was as honest as men go now-a-days, and had no desire either to cheat the government or himself; He only wanted ;to do square and fair work. By some mischance this con tractor exceeded the specifications and made the dam one foot deeper than he had contracted for.v This, of course, was cheating .himself, and making the Govern ment .a present of a foot more depth .of water all over the dam. By-and-bye, the Overseer pr came round and, zealous officer, saw the contractor's error. He. was a man who revered red-tope, and don't you'forget it. So, before he would pass the work, ; he made. the' con tractorJill up the ...

Captain Cater. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 December 1883

Captain Cater. CAPTAIN CATER, lately the master of the Q.S.S. Co.'s Grunga, about which it was recently un pleasant duty to publish certain statements, in; c^n nectio|L with the drowning of a young man named Hill, lis now in Brisbane. I hear that he is down with fever and is very weak and ill; which accounts, I suppose, for his not having called upon me. However, I hear, from intimate friends of his, that he gives the lie direct to the statements of Percy "Walsh and Dalgleish, who were first-class passengers during the voyage in question, and brought to my office the information set down in the account I published. If Captain Cater desires to make any statement, I shall be happy, in bare justice to him, to publish his version of the case; but I feel compelled to say that Percy Walsh's and Dalgleish's statements have bsen corroborated to me personally )>y several other saloon sind steerage passengers. Some of the latter have been waiting in Brisbane in the ^expectation that Captai...

That Taroom Lunacy Grievance. On November 3rd, FIGAKO gave a narration of how; an epileptic named Richards, who had been under medical treatment at Zei'be's Hotel, Taroom, was. falsely imprisoned as a lunatic, and afterwards set free i without legal formality. Zerbe, the landlord of the hotel, has called upon me and seems to consider that1 I accused him of robbing Richards., I did nothing of the kind. My article was headed, More Police Tyrannies/' and dealt out cayenne solely to a Con-, stable named Wright. In order that there may be no ; doubt about this, T herewith reproduce all that part of the article that refers to Zerbe : - On September 6tli, a man named Richards, who was suffering from epilepsy, was ,sent to Zerbe's Hotel, Taroom, for medical, treatment. He-was a man of comfortable means, haviligover' £600 in his possession. He'was attended by a day nurse, and; had at nights a male watcher to look after him.

Those Keppel Island Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 December 1883

Those Keppel Island Blacks. My readers must remember the recent " trouble" FIGAHO made anent the alleged kidnapping of Keppel Island blacks, and how it has been asserted in defence that the niggers left for the mainland willingly, be cause they could not procure food on the island. On this subject I now quote a par. from the Rockhampton Bulletin of November 28th: We have been informed that five, of the Keppel Island blacks who were removed to the mainland have died, and that one of the men has swum from Emu Park to the island. He started at day-break, rested on a rock some distance oJf shore; and, ' continuing his swim, reached the island about iioon. We should like to know if he really accomplished the feat, which would equal hat of Captain Webb, in swimming the English Channel. Again a telegram from Rockhampton, on Tuesday 3ast, tells of the finding near Ross Greek of the dead bodies of four of these Keppel Island blacks. Whether these are four fresh ones, or belong tp the five me...

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." -BAUNABY. The principal fixture for Saturday last was the Cup match between the Union and Albert clubs. It will be remembered that the U.A.C. referred to the General Committee of the Association on the question of playing their professional, E. Sheridan, in Cup matches, and the Committee decided that as no rule for cup contests or of the Association provided for such a contingency, they had not power to decide. The U.A.C. secretary then gave notice to the meeting that his club in tended to play Sheridan. AB the Albert C.C. were aware, the proper course would then be to have the matter brought before a special general meeting when a rule could be framed to operate. Notwithstanding this, and the fact that a special general meeting was held a few evenings later, they forebore to make any reference to the subject until Friday evening, when a protest against Sheridan's playing was lodged with the U.A.C. se...

Dutton's Land Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 8 December 1883

: + Dutton's Laud Policy. THE Land policy recently shadowed forth by C. B. Button, Minister for Lands, in his address to his con stituents the other day, has engaged a large share of public attention. The quidnuncs assert that Dutton's views will have to be considerably modified, if he hopes to continue in office as a colleague of Sam Griffith. Some go so far as to argue that one of two splits must occur-either a split in the Cabinet, or a split in the party supporting the Government. I am not in the secrets of the Ministry and know nothing whatever about this. Concerning the policy itself, it has been so venti lated that it is unnecessary for me to deal with it in detail. I shall content myself with mentioning a few points that have been overlooked. The pastoral lessees who preferred to continue their tenure under the Act (33 Vic., No. 10)-the Pastoral Leases Act of 1869-who accepted the rental of their leases at a rate of not less than <£1 per square mile for 14 years r...
