A Model Township. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 10 March 1883

A Model Township* . THHBE are ructions up on the Northern coast, be tweenthe Endeavour River and Mourilyan Harbour, about the cruising of Black Douglas in the Govern ment steam launch, " Vigilant"-locally labelled, " Bloodhound." The Port Douglas Times rushes, like all young 'uns, into the thick of the fray, and makes out that the cruising-don't spell this "carousing," please-of Black Douglas and his. crews, screws ^82500 a year out of the revenue, while the inletat Port: Dpuglas is in such a miserable condition that the dredging spoil" has to be landed by the ex-screw ciatingly slow method of poling punts up stream. Various jokers will have it ttiat the object of Douglas' present occupation is-(1), to continually take in and get rid of cargoes of uncustomed whiskey; (2), to give picnio parties and laiyup for repairs with con stant regularity; (3), to prospect for good sugar lands for Southern capitalists; (4), to keep the blacks in order. This last object could, they' say; be best ...

Weak Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

Weak Woman. . .MAT MILUKIN was quite up to the form of the orthodox hero of romance. Mat WAS a counter-jumper; a young man who smoked a pipe, drank beer, was partial to " flutters " for drinks. And yet this prosaic soulless being in one particular fol lowed in the footsteps of all the heroes of romance, from the Thousand and One Nights to the days of ourselves and Oui<3&-that is, fell deeply and determinedly in love with a pretty girl.

MACROSSAN'S REASONS FOR RESIGNING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

MACROSSAN'S REASONS FOB RESIGNING. It is useless to speculate as to Mr. Macrossan's reasons for leaving the Ministry. It is probably best to accept the explanation given as the real one; but he does not resign liis seat, and there is a great deal of room for speculation as to the position he may assume in the next Parliament, if he is elected. A man of Macrossan's ability may be credited reasonably enough with a desire to make money, and to secure an independence, but it is scarcely possible to believe that he is not actuated by a laudable ambition to, maintain and improve his political position. In that case he may have views which are not yet sufficiently understood, and time alone will prove what his ulterior objects are. He has unquestionably givin most effectual support to the M'Hwraith Minis try, and if he has any thought of contributing to the formation of any new party in the undefined future, we may be quite sure that he lias the capacity to make him self felt, atid that he...

NORTON'S APPOINTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

NOBTON'S A PPOINTMENT. As for Norton, the selection is the best that could have been made, though Mr. Norton has not yet shown anything like the fitness for office which Mr. Macrossan did when he was appointed. He combines a good many qualities, which ought lo make him a useful adminis trator. Honest, fearless in the expression of his convic tions, and careful in what he takes in hand, it may be safely assumed that he will devote himself seriously and conscientiously to his duties. As a Parliamentary speaker he is correct, clear, and calmly incisive; but he is lacking in the fire and the force which made Mr. Macrossan so formidable. There are some men whose utterances are much weakened by the distracting vehemence supplied by alcliololic stimulants, even when they retain sufficient command of themselves. Mr. Norton, on the other hand, is a man who, when he is speaking, sometimes contrives to convey an impression to his listeners, that what he says would be much im proved if it was f...

First Fruits of Redmond's Visit. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

First Fruits of Esmond's Visit. THE first vial of tlie Eedmdiid fflissipii has been poured out in Sydney. . If anything were needed to-emphasise my notion^ about its ill advisedness, the ? repent. Sydney riots supply full proofs. A pro-Rediiiohd meeting hailed to a protest from an anti-Kedmond meeting. I Those who clamoured loudly for the legality and constitutional character of their own agi tation, were the first to howl with open throats at any counter- wave of p ublic sentiment. The fires of slumbering ola-world hatreds were kindled into flame. Blood, which only by acci dent stopped short of mutder, was shed. The police were mauled about, and at the first blush found themselves powerless to stem the turbu lence. Inspector Anderson, the plficer-in charge, was knocked down and brutally kicked. The grey-headed politician Sir Henry Parkes perhaps the most conspicuous personage in the colony's history during the last quarter of a century-was only saved from street assassina tion by p...

How happened it The Spanish, Student THE Pollard kids wound up La Fille de Madame dngot oil Tuesday night, after their regulation run of marked success. Next they varied with Pinafore an opera that always proves a popular draw. The caste was pretty well the same as that adopted on the occasion of the last visit of the Liliputian troupe, except that Miss Lena Salinger supplanted her brother as Captain Corcoran, and Miss. Flo de Lome was substituted for Master Osmond as Ralph Kackstraw. For throwing genuine go a,nd hilarity into Pinafore, you can't beat these Pollard children, most of .whom are not yet out of pinafores 1 No kid.

RESIGNATION OP MACROSSAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 17 March 1883

RESIGNATION OP MACBOSSA.N. . Albert Norton as Minister for Works, vice John Mur tagh Macro6san, means a very Tifcal change in the Minis try. It cannot be denied that J. M. MacroBsan has proved himself to be one of the ablest-debaters who has ever sat in a Queensland Parliament. He was fond of pushing his arguments too far, but for force and vigor ous declamation no one in the present Parliament, or in the last, was his equal, when he had a good case, ani when he was in his best form. He entered Parliament as the vindicator of northern grievances, and he has amply vindicated them, for he has. won for "the northern constituencies all and more than all they could have expected at his hands. Yet by a strange dispen sation of political fortune the northern constituencies are not now nearly so much in love with Mr. Macrossan as at one time they were. As an administrator he has been painstaking, patient, and attentive to his duties. He- inherited a, terrible muddle at Ipswich when he first...

'Tear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1883. Charley Liiley. His honour Mr. Chief Justice is a finished speaker. He chooses his words deftly, and they come trippingly, though not too trippingly, on the tongue. His farewell speech at the Town Hall dinner was first-rate. Ho said enough, and not too much. It would be irreverent to say that he is the Prince of Humbugs, and it would not bo quite true, but to b.e a Prince of Humbugs, is to be a charming fellow, and in old days when Charley Lilley was perfectly himself, as he often was, he was very persuasive and sometimes very forcible. He is now a great State functionary, and as such he is impressive, didactic, and authoritative, but he can unbend easily enough. On Monday night he was really gracious and affectionately in earnest. Charley Lilley, in the exuberance of his youthful escapades, was always a favorite. He might be rash and arrogant, but there was a saving grace abou...
