To Orangemen. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

To Orangemen. I dare say you Orangemen mean well. I've seen many of you who are fairly decent fellows. But you g-o a leeble too far. You pretend that your whole organisation is bent upon promoting Protes tantism as against everything else. In that you strain the position. / You are narrow—not broad. You don't fight the rest of the world. You fight a sect—a sect you hate. It is a Border feud and a Border feud only. Orange men, as only Orangemen, don't fight Buddhism, Brahminism, Mahommedanism, Hebraism, the creed of Confucius, and all Heathenism. They may fight these creeds, but only in common with those who are not Orangeman. Don't deceive yourselves. Your whole organization is only pitted against Some.. It is not Christianity against Paganism. It is a part of Christiariity against another part of Christianity. It is brother against brother- It is a family quarrel. Bait! then. Why talk so big, you who snarl at your brother in a different part of the same kennel I do not take one sid...

A Micky's Fate. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

A Micky's Fate, At Q-reenhide lives a youth. Jack Evans is his name, From Wales to Queensland bush, two years ago, he came; And though he is a lad, with little things delighted, His temper is a hot one when he gets excited. Now, working cattle is a thing not calculated To make one's passions smoothj in fact, it may be stated, To find a man work stock and keep his temper, too, As rare is, aB to see a flood on the Barcoo. Jack Evans had begun to know his way about, When, one fine day in i&tarch, a party started out, Consisting of four men, the Boss himself commanded, To muster up the calves which had not yet been branded. Now; all was going well, until they saw a mob, ! To round up which they found a far from easy job. Then one young beast ran out, a bull-calf called a Mick, And made towards the creek near which the scrub was thick. The manager and Jack were nearest to the brute, And so the last named started off in quick pursuit. The Micky dodged about and doubled like a hare...

Don't Drop the Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

;T Don't Drop the Policy. A Northern storekeeper, finding himself, the other day, unable to meet certain bills due, wrote to a Northern bank, with which he was in the habit of doing business, and asked it to increase his over draft by honoring certain cheques. Some , demur being made to this—for bankers have t o .b e very businesslike in the North, during Sam Griffith's reign of terror—rthe storekeeper wrote again, enum erating the securities held by the bank on his account- Among these, there happened to be a policy t>f insurance, of considerable value, oh his wife's life. Having closed his letter, a happy thought would appear to have struck him, for he added the following postcript:—• ■ ■ ^ "P.S.—My wife has been very unwell the last 4 ; months, and I think it would be very unwise to let this policy lapse." ■ Prudent man! This sort of man will never go bankrupt for want of calculating all the chancies. And such a chance, too! It isn't every man who can hope to increase his over...

Rutledge Slandering Queensland Women. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Rutledge Slandering; Queensland Women. I have received the following, indignant letter:— To the Editor of "Figaro." Sib,—Are we to bave nothing in the pages of Figaro in castigatioii of the foul aspersidh of the women of Queensland, as he padded himself before cur eyes recently through the medium ;tfof the i columns of every newspaper in Australia P A person yclept " honourable" publicly defamed Queensland women before his constituents at Charters Towers. I will not soil your pages, Or my own letter, by givinga place to the abominably filthy insinuation —which, I see, elicited " great laughter" from his auditory. In any other part of Queensland, I will venture to say, the speaker would have been hooted down and hunted out of the place; arid, this not. having occurred, I am inclined to think that there must be much of the Whitechapel and Houndeditch " The Eleetriad: A Tale of the Trojan Wax," is a clever bnt racy imitation of.

Business and Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Business and Politics. 5am Griffith has said in the House of Assembly that perhaps it would be better for sugar planters to less mix their business with politics. Perhaps it ■ would. x But it's rich coming^rom Sam, isn't it ? Sam has mixed his business with politics to some purpose, and one of t he. remaindi&£s is New Farm, and another is Jtoss Island/ and another is P. F. Macdonald's fees, and another is Jaclt Atmear*s ditto, and another —lor! they tumble out continually, and all strictly in the way of business. Arthur Rutledge never mixed politics with busi ness ; did he ? Supposing he hadn't, h© might have lived to be as old as Tom Coker's cat—and that was born with Noah in the ark and isn't dead yet—and he would never have attained any senior position at the bar. Besides, if Sam never mixes up polities with busi ness, why dpesjie try to starve Figaro out by with drawing' from^t"? Government advertisements ? He wants publicity. I can .offer it to him, and he knows it. He ...

Profaning a Corpse at Danwich [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 18 July 1885

Profaning a Corpse at Danwfeh Last Session, a Select Committee of the Legisla tive Council reported uppn the management of the fl^unwich Benevolent Asyluih. The Hon. William Henry that enquiry. The report proved that the; scheme of Dunwieh was demoralised. I iFhe HonC>|^lliaiiii Henry Walsh is ; at present in England.' Buty4>efore he left Queensland for the mother countr^fbHe Premier, Sam Griffith, promised the ihon, gentleman that a medical officer should be stationed/at^Dunwieh. It seems as if, iiowthat"the Irrepressible" is safely away, the matter is being let slide. V ; , My^tfcention has beesn called to this subject, in "consequence of the receipt of a horrifying letter from a Dunwieh inmate, m reference-to the recent death there of a man named James Ball. This Ball had been ailing for some days, but had not been moved into a hospital ward. He was located in No. 13 ward. On the 23rd June, Ball appeared to become worse, and, after a series of fits, died. He is said to Jhia...

The Muster at Ballajoie* (Continued). Oscar Cornwallis (the young English swell I have referred to) watched the boss,; Btockman Bill, and Bunda Jimmy, in open ed mouthed astonishment 5 a» they popped out bullock after bullock. He got more' and more excited, as some of the cantank erous cattle came dashing round his side of the camp; and as the horsemen in full pursuit, came wheeling and dodging round and past him, he longed, yet feared, to join in the chase. Gradually he drew nearer and nearer to the front of the campj till he had almost got between the two mobs of cattle, not at all a proper place for a new; chum. At last, he thought, his chance had i come to distinguish himself, and join in the sports A beast started out from the camp and made .for $he coachers. " Now for it," said Oscar as he put spurs to his horse and galloped across to intercept the bullock. But another horseman had start ed from the other side, on the same errand; and sang out madly for Oscar to pull up, and l...
