How Can It Be? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

How Can It Be ? Says the Port Douglas Times'.—"One of the greatest—if not the greatest-—of disgraceful scenes which ha? taken placo in this town, occurred on Thursday morning, when the editor of this journal had the misfortune to be unavoidably mixed up in it. Con versing with a gentleman in the main street, a drunken fellow dame up and asked the Editor to give an expla nation of some paragraph which had appeared in his paper. The Editor deeming it beneath his notice to reply to this cub, was about to leave the place, when he was struck by the hound. This man, who is the lessee of the Chronicle, says he is a journalist. Knowing swell that he is a mere cipher in this town, he thought he would make a dying struggle to raise himself out of his obscurity, by making an attempt at something extra ordinary to gain notoriety. He succeeded t6 a certain extent, and also, disgraced himself ignoininiously. The time has arrived for compelling persons to show some qualification for being a journa...

Hi Falutin. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 1 August 1885

Hi Falutin, For gushing; platitudes I'll back the author of "A night with Booth," in last Wednesday week's Courier, against any penny-a-liner who maudles into unconscious humor, in Brisbane. I have neither time nor space to spare for analysis of his method, the secret of which consists in an eagerness to utter aloud what the average man would be.ashamed to plead guilty of thinking; and I shall only point out one or two passages as samples of the kind of nonsense that is supposed to go down in, to suit the taste of—the capital. "Music," says the gusher, ''has been from time immemorial the right arm of religion a sentence that sets one wondering where the writer can have been raised, and what course of' reading he can have gone through; But, in the next sentence, he beats the first into fits. " There is something in it (music) which lulls themostcombativespirit "by drawing " to their Ut most tension the nerves of highly strung organizations." Organizations which are not highly strung,...

£180,000 Lost by Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

£180,000 Lost by Fire. The Struan Bond, Brisbane, situated between Charlotte and Mary Streets, near the Grand Hotel, was discovered to be on fire at about 5 a.m. on Friday last, July 31st. The Struan Bond was the finest and largest bonded warehouse in Brisbane— 4 storeys high—and4 contained goods to the value of about £180,000. The alarm was given-at the Fire Brigade station at about 5.25 a.m. Within a few minutes a light reel was -on hand, and this was quickly followed by . a heavy reel and ladder; Superintendent Hinton and some 30 firemen worked like heroes, with the means at their disposal; but it was evident from the first that all attempts to save the Struan Bond were hopeless, and the firemen soon concentrated their efforts upon the endeavour to confine the fire to the one set of premises. The Struan Bond was full of «*ines, spirits, kerosene, tobacco, woolpacks, and other most inflamiiiable goods, besides a variety of less combustible stock. The flames rolled in liquid waves ...

"When a man is lost in: admiration, you might search admira tion all over with a double-lens bull's-eye lantern, and find him not, especially if he had recently been speiling up North. But this is altogether a different case, a nickel one, in fact; if the owner of that com pass knows where it was lost, how can it be lost at all ? He admits his knowledge that it was lost in a nickel case, and, instead of girding up his loins, descending into the bowels of that nickel case, and seeking diligently until he found it, he betrays his knowledge to the p...
