Reporters Outwitting the Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

Reporters Outwitting the Convention. It was a stupid bit of cowardice on the part of the Intercolonial Convention to exclude {she Press from its proceedings. Our Sam and Garrick were amojagst those who voted to shut out the^ Press. , Off course, Queenslanders can easily understand that. Sam | has been so often misreported, or says he: has been, that he must by this time hate the very sight of reporters. But the action of ,the Conventipn>di4n't make a bit of difference to the Victorian reporters. Melbourne pressmen are nearly all smart men, and to [ have served an apprenticeship on the Melbourne Press, is invariably a recommendation wor$i Saving. | Melbourne pressmen are a different breed to the I sleepy know-alls of either Sydney, Brisbane, or Adelaide. You can't keep a Melbourne ma^ igno rant of any business he had set his mind upon know ing. The Melbourne pressmen sent to dance attendance at the Convention, told Stuart, the N.S.W. Premier, that the Convention might as well admi...

The Hodel Libel Case. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

- ?-' The ffodel Libel Case. HODBL BBOTHBBS, the youthful proprietors of the Daily Northern Standard, are paying for their whistle. They recently made some comments upon J. M'Alister, Bowen agent to the curator of intestate estates. These comments dealt with M'Aliater's official actions, and were, in his opinion, so calculated to damage his reputation, that he entered a suit for libel and claimed £2000 damages. The case was heard at Bowen. The defendants, who, I may say, are inexperienced in this particular journalistic channel, seemed to consider the matter all along as nothing but a high old joke. Recently, they devoted a leading article to the opera tion of what the vulgar would term, " rubbing it in/' and they " let things glide " with an indifference bora of the legal opinions they had been favored with, to the effect that there was no case. in the first proceedings, HodePBros. didn't take the formal trouble of entering any defence at all! Of course judgment went by default. Th...

The Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

Tlie Wheels. A. Boldemau, 61 Bockhahipton, had a terriffic " buster " off a " bike*' on December 1st, whilst racing with his brother home from the cricket ground. One of his feet slipped from a treadle. He did some amateur steam-rolling on that part of the road " where it would do the most good." He was momentarily stunned and badly bruised about the body and hands; but bicyclists are proverbially%so tough, that I am »ot a bit surprised to hear that he is A. B. in condition as well as in initials. The only anxiety weighing upon his mind now is, an anxious yearning to see the Christmas numbers of PUNCH and FIGARO CHCCKX.ES and FLASHES, respectively, the tallest things of their kind published in the Southern Hemisphere, barring my pre sentation ALMANAC. At a moonlight entertainment to be given early in the present month at Maryborough, on behalf of its Town Band, bicycles are to be utilised to assist in the attraction of patronage. There is to be a bicycle and tricycle tournament, and...

Miscellaneous Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

Miscellaneous Sporting. MOST papers report that the Hon. Jauies White won £70,000 on the two Martini's. This is not correct, andl believe £10,000 was the damage done. But six members of the Union Club, Sydney, won £60,000 between them, and, with commendable prudence, cleared out for Home the same night that the Cup was won, to the intense disgust-of the Yidishers, who were howling loudly for revenge. Moses didn't " come to the christening" this time.

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 15 December 1883

Aquatics. The young New South Wales sculler, William Beach, is mating his predicted reputation very fasti. He has just won the Hunt prize of £150, with an off-cliance of being matched against Hanlan, This event, as all aquatic readers will know, was got up by James Hunt, of the Oxford hotel, Sydney, and was decided in heats. The conditions were-the race to be rowed over the Champion Course for a prize of £150, and the winner to be matched against Hanlah, whenever that worthy comes to Australia (should he ever screw his calculating mind to the sticking point), in the event of Elias Laycock being too unwell to row the Canadian. The competitors who entered for the Hunt prize were-'William Beach, Edward Trickett, Michael Kush, and D. M'Donald. Trickett and M'Donald rowed the first heat, which proved a farce; M'Donald giving up at Putney. Beach then beat Rush, a foul claimed by the latter being disallowed. These heats took place on the 6th inst. On Saturday last, Beach and Trickett met, ...

Ye Warriors; LET's have a clear understanding. Monday was a holiday. Therefore (Q. E. D.), there were people who were not responsible for their actions. ;* - There was a shatn fight at Breakfast Creek. Tliere was a party of rebelsunder Major Moore. Their idea was to attack Brisbane under cover of the holiday; to! loot the Q,. N. Bank, and spend the proceeds byfakingf their girls to the Opera in the evening. Major Adatns was chief of this revolutionary Staff, which consisted of some 40 men from No. 2 battery, and over 100 from the 1st regiment. The Battery sojurs were under the command of Captain Gannon (who may be considered a son of a gun, being close upon a Cannon !) and Lieutenant Scholes ; while the " members of the line" (so called, because they couldn't get into line) had to put up their knuckles to Captain M'Farlane and Lieut. Gartside. This attacking force would have had everything its own way, hadn't some " gallant defenders *' smelt out their treason. These were some 40 en...
