Sugar Drops. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 March 1883

MELBOURNE capitalists are embarking in sugar at Nichol Bay, in Western Australia. They intend em- ! ploying Malay labor. The Albert has started on a recruiting voyage! The climate of Nichol Bay, and indeed of all that part of the coast, is supposed to be tnuch like that of Port Darwin-that is to say, six nnonths out of the twelve are perfectly di'y, so that it may be considered doubtful whetherisugar will be a success.. Cotton, rice, or maize, however, and many other cultivated plants should do well. ?:;V KANAKA labor getting scarcer and dearer from day today. The planters are ndw paying JB20 a head recruiting money; and of late the recruiting vessels have not done well, both as regards short numbers recruited, and the long trips made. .#'*?* ME.

'' Fear God; Speak evil of none ; Stick to tlie Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1883. Figaro's Answer to Impeachment. Mr. PINNOCK, P.M., is, I believe, a thoroughly con scientious man. It has, however, long been apparent that he is not qualified to fill the important and re sponsible position of Police Magistrate of the metro polis* As a man of the world, Mr. Pinnock is as in nocent as a child. As a thorough gentleman, he is too confiding. His implicit belief m statements made to him, his gullibility in being bamboozled by.hanky panky-are simply deplorable, though amusing. He is too much of a straight-going gentleman himselFto suspect duplicity on the part of those to whom he has to look for information. Consequently, he is fre quently ** had." It lis a matter of common comment. I will give one or two (out of many) instances in point. A week or two since, a Mr. Marchant wrote a letter to one of the dailies, testifying to brutal illtreatment of prisoners by t...

It 'aint—It 'aint, the Cat; [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 March 1883

It 'aint-It 'aint, the Cat; THREE ruffians,-John Starch alias Bourk, Thomas Boheii alias Irish, and another-chyacked constable Galligan, and decoyed him into a back yard, in order that they might half kill him. The constable behaved gallantly, and more than once overpowered the chief offender Starch, but without unnecessary violence. Ite could not, however, hold his own against the three, and was unmercifully beaten, being; during a . portion of the struggle, held in the most cowardly manner known to slum brutality. Now, mark the sentences passed upon these men. Starch is fined £& or three months' imprisonment for obsceiie language. Further, he is sentenced to one month's imprison ment for assaulting the constable. So that it is three times the crime to use obscene language that it is to assault a constable ! Remember that, ye larrikins. Swear not, but silently punch! Yet, further still: He was also sentenced to two months* imprisonment for destroying <gart of the...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Student [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 March 1883

A Peep at the Shows. " Tou were not aV the play to-night, Don Corlos. How happened it?"-The Spanish Btvden* TIKI Pollard's still to the fore. They run just about as captivating a show, as an ordinary hypo chondriac in this world of woe would desire to see. in order to lift the clouds off his morose brow. The singing isn't in it much, or rather is in it too much for mortal ears at times, but the verve and zest the children put into their parts, carry one's enthusiasm away past ordinary criticism. The troupe have been running Pinafore, with a change to the Chimes of Normandy on Monday night, and a Hospital benefit on Tuesday, when La Fille de Madame Angot was given for the last time.

The Trigger. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 March 1883

The Trigger. A MOST interesting pigeon match was shot off at Beaudesert on Thursday last, the competing teams being selected from the Brisbane, Southport, and Logan Gun Clubs respectively. In addition to the Challenge Cup, which has to be won twice in succession by any club before it can be retained, there was also a cup, the gift of Mr. Gartside, which was given to be won by the highest individual scorer during the match. The scores appear below, from which it will be seen that the match \vas a very closely contested one, being eventually won by the Logan team. Mr. Gartside's cup, however, was won by Mr. Lloyd, of Brisbane, his score being 15 out of a possible 18, which was a very good performance. Everything passed off smoothly and well, and the Logan Gun Club deserve any amount of credit for the manner in which they are pushing the sport forward. We trust . they may always meet with the same success; success which is mainly due to the indefatigable working of their energetic secr...
