The Coming man. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

The Coming man. Mr DEAR SAM,-If I am to believe your two organs, the Telegraph and the Evangelical Standard, you are the coming man j the statesman who is to redress all our wrongs, reverse the iniquitous policy of the great MAC, undo the heavy burdens which that unscru pulous politician is binding round cur necks, and initiates policy of your own which is to make our Queensland the envy of the world. These two highly respectable journals further inform us that you are soon to come into power,. MAC having made shipwreck of his chances by his Coolie add Transcontinental heresies; and that when the blessed moment of MAC'S downfall arrives, then you will lighten and corruscate with projects and devices, by which our imagination will be captivated and all hearts made to rejoice. Tou may be well assured that no one will rejoice more than I when this transcendental policy of yours burets upon the countiy. But I am anxious to aid you in your laborious efforts to frame it and put it before ...

"He who is not with us is against us." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

u He who is not with us is against us." DEAR NEMO,-Allow me to compliment you on the evident earnestness with which you discussed the education question last week. It is quite invigorating to find a secular journalist who has convictions on the subject off the beaten track. Allow me also to state my conviction that you are, to use a homely- but ex pressive American metaphor, "barking up the wrong tree." Will you tell me honestly if you derived your religious training from the well hated dominie who, with his tawse, drove scriptural knowledge and Latin verbs into you, in the same manner as a carpenter does a nail into a plank, viz., by repeated blows. No, sir, you well know that the Biblical system of morals which you would have our larrikins learn, and the Biblical theory of a judgment to come, which you would have our city arabs tremble at were impressed on your mind so indelibly, that nothing can rub them out wholly and solely by the teaching in your parents home. Here is the weak...

Morehead on Ministerial Biz. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

Moreliead oil Ministerial Biz, IT is proof of Morehead's advance, in politics that he Has spoken without any bias in favour of the party with whom at one time he was so closely connected. From station-management to commission agency Morehead has run the gauntlet of squatting influences. There was a time, when leagued with three or four congenial squatters, he levied political black-mail up on conservative and liberal alike. His high spirits* like the mouse in the nursery rhyme, ran away with his discretion, and his tongue did injury to his ability. The collapse of the sub-section has been the making of Morehead and a gain to Queensland. It is only necessary to read the report of his speech at Boma to recognise in Morehead the makings of an honest statesman. No consideration of the business in which he is engaged stayed him from speaking the soundest of common-sense. No squatter had a right to an inde feasible lease. The solitary magnificence of sheep walks must give way to the needs...

The Steam-Scoop at Roma. (See Illustration.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

Tlie Stcam-Scftop at Roma. : ' im SOUTH AUSTRALIA has long been ahead of all other colonies in the matter of water-storeage. Fostered by the wealth and enterprise of Sir John Elder, that very necessary department of pastoral occupation has been brought well to the front. The Queensland Government have been attracted by the results of his experiments, and have imported one of Fowler's Steam Earth Scoops. This engine is in tended for use in the far west. But it is making a trial experiment at Roma, where the inhabitants have been disappointed in their boring experiment. As seen in the picture, the. machine is worked by two engines, like the steam plough; o^d the scoop drawn backwards and forwards by wire-ropes over ground which has been previously broken up by a powerful plough. In little more than two and a half minutes the scoop gathers up, deposits, and spreads a load of 3 or 4 yards of cubic measurement; some loads reach the huge capacity of more - than 6 tons. When travelling, on...

Foreign Affairs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 February 1883

THE Cologne Gazette and the Paris Presse hare been at it again, hammer and tongs. The Gazette had been dismissing the Gambettist revanche projects, and ward ing France not to play with fire, lest Germany should be disposed to put in a claim for the outstanding balance of their plunderings in 1792,, in the shape of a few more milliards, wherewith to build a fresh ring of fortresses nearer Paris. The Presse, in reply, intimated that the French armies in 179? brought away nothing out of Germany except-bugs! which strikes me as an elegant instance (for a Frenchman) of the retort courteous. * * . UNDKT EBBED by her experience of South American revolutions* of civil wars in Cuba, and earthquakes and cholera at Manilla, Spain is re-entoring the lists as a colonising power. She lias seizod a number of the piratical island nests that oxfcend between tlie Philipines and Borneo, and her action in so doing, though not likely to bo very profitable to herself will be marked with satisfaction by e...
