How to Pay Law Costs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 31 March 1883

How to Pay Law Costs. THOMAS GEOKGE SAWKIKS, journalist, of Brisbane, lias been adjudicated insolvent on his own petition in forma pauperis. This is where Slaughter experiences the delight attached to getting a verdict of costs against a moneyless prosecutor. Sawkins was mulct in heavy costs, and couldn't ppy them. The law respecting libel or slander needs trenchant amendment in one very important particular. Any person may at present be harassed with a suit at the whim of the veriest man of straw. It does not matter whether the so-called libel or slander hasn't get a leg to stand on. It doesn't matter whether the action be brought as a pure speculation to extort money, or even if it be brought out of malicious devilment pur et simple. The defendant is put to enormous expense, besides being worried almost out of his wits. If he lose his case, he has to ante up to the prosecutor. If he gain a verdict, and -an order for costs, lie frequently finds that the complainant hasn't a sou. Sh...

The Suppressed Pamphlet. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 31 March 1883

The Suppressed Pamphlet. A FEW weeks ago I received a pamphlet, in a grey cover, with a funereal look about it. It was labelled in double leaded type-r THE LATEST POLITICAL DEVICE FOR PARTITIONING QUEENSLAND AMONG SPECULATIVE RINGS, . AND ITS EXPOSURE. THIS is just the thing for Figaro I thought, and 1 turned its pages over-with avidity. Figaro lives in order to expose wicked devices of all kinds; and here I thought, if a brother expositor-Let me liug him to my bosom. I read on, page after page, and long ere I had reached the end, I heaved a sigh of admiration. " Great Heavens,"! exclaimed, " What an expositor! He exposes, no doubt, a most artful device, but he exposes himself. Hojv sad." I saw it at once. I detected the unmistakable lineaments of the exposi tors. There could be no mistake. There was no., mistake, it was written in every line, between, above, and below every line. I looked for the name; for the names of the speculative ring who had evidently inspired this expositor....

'' Pear God; Sy>cak evil of none; Stick to tlie Truth j aud never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 1883. God Bless Ireland! I WENT up to Goodna on Easter Monday on purpose to see Redmond and to hear him. I am no fool and I knew what to expect. Redmond pleased me and that is saying a good deal, for I am not easily pleased. He is an accomplished speaker, and he acts on William Shake speare's precepts. He does not mouth liis words. He is moderate, pleasing, and yet he is very much in earnest. I felt at the time an involuntary admiration for this young man wlio seemed so good. His sentiment s were ' admirable-my very own. If ho bad borrowed them direct from the source of my own inspiration they could not Have been better or more like mine. I feit inclined to convict him of plagiarism on the spot.

OWING to the unsettled state of the weathfer 011 Saturday very few Cricket matches were played in Brisbane, the piincipal being on the Union Ground at Toowong, where a match was played between an eleven representing the Union Club, and a team selected by Mr. Baines from players remaining in town for the holidays, which was mostly composed of members of the .Albert Club, aucl proved much stronger than anticipated, easily defeating the Unions by 71 runs and an innings. The visiting team in their first innings put together 147 runs. Moffat, 24 ; Cowan not out, 17 ; Cotham, 17 ; Byrne, 14 ; all played well for their runs.

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 — 31 March 1883

A Peep at the Shows. " Tou were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it ?"-The Spanish Student The Pollards first, as usual. The first undoubtedly in successfully raking in the dollars, and the applause of the public. The Princess of Trebizonde is proving a golden harvest. On the opening (Saturday) night, the Theatre Royal was packed densely, with the ex-: ception of (say) a sixth of the dress circle. The little 'una were as immense as it is possible for little 'uns to be. Cabriolo, the father of most of the other prin cipal characters, in the hands of Miss Ruth Wallace -our old friend, the Bnuff-box bailie in the Chimes of Normandy--was a rollicking dispenser of showman fun. ^The trained and efficient way in which she misplaced her raitches was the acme of drollery. Her mate, MissXmy Brooks, had the audience as Dr. Sparadrop. Her demure gloominess makes her most common-place action mi artistic piece of comicality, and her remark | ablefalsetto "A-hem 1" took the cake ...
