Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 March 1883

Cricket, "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if tliey wore the world's controllers." -BARNABT. THE Union and Bowen Hills Clubs, celebrated the holiday in honor of the pa-t-ron saint of Pat-land, by an all-day match on Queen's Park, it beingtheirturn for the Prentice Challenge Cup. White and Down were the Captains, and, the former, with exemplary devotion to the fair sex, called " Woman " to Down's toss, whereat the fickle goddess smiled upon him, and o-ave him the option of sending; his men to the wickets,: which he did. Wallace, and the little stone-waller, Grogan, put in an appearance to the bowling df that sable youth, Murray, who speedily dissolved the part nership, Grogan popping the; third ball gently out to Carvosso at point. He nearly got one, and then retired to garden-walling. Wallace scored 12 by good straight batting, and looked good enough for 50, when the South Sea Island representative put a yorker past him. The feature of the day's play was Perkins' 1st innings j the ...

Sporting Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 24 March 1883

Sporting ^Gossip. ,t4,. ! THE races take place at Cooper^ Plains on Holiday next, and the following are the. weights declared toi the Handicap :-Ingleaide, 9st. 21bs.; Bulgarry, 8st. 71bs.; Peerless, 8st. ; Javelin, 7sfc.; Tambourine, 6st. Tibs. There a,re hardly likely to be more than two or three starters, as Javelin got one of his hind legs badly gal loped on at Beaudesert, imd Tambourine iB not in work. No doubt the other races will fill better, and as .Easter Monday is always a popular holidaya number of pleasure" seekers are sure to go outto see the sport. I hear there is a Totalisator to be worked there, so those who wish to speculate will hare a cihauoe of investing on their fancies. I may as well thus early for the sake of owners living at a distance mention the fact that entries for the prin cipal handicaps at the Q:T.G. Autumn Meeting close on the 3rd proximo. I have to thank Mr* MapleBtbn for some cards of the Autumn programme which are got up in the usual neat and handy...

A Demand for Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 31 March 1883

A Demand for Justice. I HAVE now before me the full particulars of tlie kidnapping cases first communicated to the Towns ville Daily Bulletin. That paper declined to publish a letter sent to it, until it had received what it considered to be the necessary Confirmation of the information forwarded. Now, it has tardily published the news, and it has saved itself from risk by doing this in so clumsy a manner a£ to let the name of its informant become matter of current comment. This method is the surest way to check others from giving information in the future. The facts are these: On March 3rd, a gentleman from Hillgrove Station, described as a '- big stout man who owns a cattle station," accompanied by one white man, four Kanakas, and a lot of spare horses, went, after dork, to a blacks' camp, on Cattle Creek, a mile distant from Argentine. Presenting arms, they compelled two gins to attend them back to Hillgrove station, which is situated about thirty miles away on the other side of ...

On the Bluff. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 31 March 1883

On the Bluff. EBENEZER TIIOENE has gone on tlio bluff. The publication by Figaro of an article headed, "He was a Christian," and tailed off with some choice doggrel entitled,<l The Ebbylasting Sneezer," naturally raised Ebby's hair. He cast around for the best means to bluif theFigaro. Being well aware that no exhibition of swank would go down with the proprietor, he fastened upon the publishers, Messrs. Gordon and Gotch, and informed them that lie was reluctantly compelled to go for them to the tune of £2000, on account of the articles above named. The proprietor of this paper immediately lodged witli Mr. Jones, the manager of the firm of Gordon and Gotch, the sum of £100, as indemnity against present proceedings. I await developments with unalloyed amusement. I understand l^at the gravamen of the libel is con sidered to rest m the last couplet of " The Ebbylasting Sneezer" " Oar Ebeaczer got so irate, lie left the Church and turned a Pirate."

" Figaro " and the Police Magistrate. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 31 March 1883

" Figaro " and the Police Magistrate. Figaro is getting on. A fortnight or so ago, Mr. Pinnock* stipendiary magistrate, proclaimed, from his se*t on the Bench, that an account of a l'evolting fight between two women in South Brisbane, pub lished in the Figaro, was entirely without foundation. I took up Mr. Pinnock's glove of challenge and re iterated my statement. Since thien, the police, as might naturally be expected, have strenuously en deavoured to disprove it. And the outcome of their fortnight's searching is ludicrous in the extreme. The-.police mountain in labor has brought forth a mouse. And such a mongrel mouse! On Wednes day, inspector Lewis asked and obtained leave to make a public statement in the Police Court. Had he only intimated to me his intention of doing so, I would have had a verbatim report taken of both his speech and that of the Police Magistrate. Not hav ing been present, I am obliged to rely upon the reports published by the city daily press. From these, ins...
