Bill Brown gets his Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Bill Brown s$ts liis Mail. . Postmaster Hyland was at the delivery window of the Pine Hill Post Office, when a carrier slouched up \and said— u Any letters for me, boss ?" " "What's your name ?" asked Hyland. "Brown." " What's your initials ?" " What the glory is that to do'with you ?" " Oh, well j if you don't give me your initials, I can't give you any letters, because I might .give you the wrong ones." "Well, I'm bunged! Look'ere, boss, if a feller can't get his gummy letters 'thout all this 'ere bouncin' humbug,,yer can just keep eim;,and be dumped ter yer!" 1 And the discouraged carrier was.just about turn ing away utterly disgusted. But Hyland was quite equal to the occasion, and yelled out— "Here. Come back. What do they call you on the road, Bill, or Jack, or Tom, or what ?" "Oh! If that's all yer want, why "didn't yer say so afore ? My name's Bill." There were two or three letters for William Brown, and Hyland handed them over. Bill started for his town camp, and got a " kn...

Other names have also been forwarded; so that the Beds will/in every probability^ visit Toowoomba with a full team ; in which case, a pleasant and successful trip may be anticipated. , At the Albert Sports Ground, on Saturday last, the Intercolonial fifteen were pitted against a selected eighteen, whom they defeated by 28 points to 6. Durham and Robinson were unavoidably absent from the ranks of thfc fifteen, their1 places in the forwards being filled by George Markwell aind Taggart. The play of the team on the whole was not up to expectation, though exception must be made in favor of Fred Hardgrave as back, Michael and Adolph Feez as half...

The Black Gin's Outraged Hearth. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

The Black Gift's Outraged Hearth. Queensland is civilising its blacks very fast. Out West, a black and his gin were employed on a station for six months—the blaekfellow as stock man, the gin as shepherd. After six months, the boss settled up. Deducting previous advances, the blaekfellow had J39 odd coming to him, which amount he duly received. With this in hand, he proceeded to, Boma, by train; promising his gin to return within ja, given time. He did so return, but not alone. He brought with him a second gin, declaring he was " aller same along' as white feller ; got im plenty money, take im plenty, wife !" His reception by his first gin was demonstrative, but not affectionate. She, too, actually went and asked the boss whether she couldn't "make im Jimmy pay money along of magistrate!" The boss educated her up in Divorce Court proceedings,, and she seemed.to ,f catch on" to the idea pretty fairly, but not to; bie overpleased with the discoveries she therein made. Her. terse commen...

Who'd Trade with Sammy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Wio'd Tra^e with Sammy. As I sat pat Pa^Hament the other night, I took t<T watching Sammy, I'm a partisan, of course, we all are,; but—to give the devilhis due—I must admit that Sammy plays the man, He was fighting a technical point where Moreh)ead and Mcllwr.iith had him down^; hut,he hung on like grim death and made such a case out of a plainly apparent fallacy that I felt/asdf, when my next libel suit comes off, I: could safely trust myself in his hands. With a good case he would walk over everybody. He is the colossus of the Government benches—: in fact, toe is the only competent man they, have, for Dickson, Button, and Miles are a trio of: numb eculis; and only poor Sammy's constant- whipping keeps: them up to their work. Morehead compared him to a schoolmaster, and the comparisbn is a good one. He corrects their mistakes, he shows them how to behave, he helps them with their lessons, and, if the Government is incompetent, it is no fault of Sammy's. He seems a very T...

Rewarded at Last. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Rewarded at Last* ; At a certain coast town in Queensland, not tw) thou sand mileseouth of CapeYork, a well-known auctioneer, whose political activity has raised him to high rank and influence, in the. Liberal Association there, and for some years enabled him to dictate to the electors of that city of the plain, who shall be their representative in parliament has, at long last, been rewarded for his faithful services to Sam, and a Liberal Government, by - the appointment of " Government Auctioneer." The billet was rendered vacant by the dismissal of its former holder, who was doubly or trebly uriiGt for so respon sible a position^ inasmuch as he bore a good character, was possessed of a fair education ; held an independent position, and, worse than all, like most men of the type, was an avowed supporter of the Opposition. Of the present holder, it is not necessary to say more than that his character, in the opinion of Sam, and his satellites, constitutes him the round man for the ro...

Flaunting the Pirate Flag. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Flaunting the Pirate Flag, I hear that on July 4th last—American Inde pendence Day—at Thursday Island, the noble craft Ethel was seen sailing about while flying a Pirate Flag. This is said to have been done under the very eyes of the authorities, and in sight of the Govern ment vessels, Advance and Mavis. Yet, no notice was taken of the blackguardly exhibition. It may be "argued that the Ethfel was well known to all tho authorities and that she was only facetiously asserting her "independence/' Americans hive every right to assert their independence, so long as they don't act offensively to others and repugnantly to the common principles of manhood. The flying of a Pirate Flag is one of those jokes which deserve to be overtaken by punishment. Any vessel would have been justified in firing a shot into the facetious Ethel, so long as she proclaimed herself a pirate. The authori ties, as as I have said, took no notice whaiever and the piratical flag floated to the breeze until a loyal ...

The: Mackay Show. I Mr. T. Black*has: issued a most liberal schedule of prizes for the iMackay Agricultural, Pastoral, and Mining Association Exhibition, to come off on Sept ember 23rd and 24th. The full programme is advertised in my business columns of Saturday, August 1st, and Saturday, August 8th. The prize list is drawn up on different, and some what more liberal lines than that of the Q.N. Asso ciation, which was fully noticed last week. And in .the. horse and cattle sections, silver medals are 'probably fitW prizes than money, which does not appreciably help to pay exhibitors' expenses, and is no -lasting memorial of triumphs won.- Section 1; (horses), is divided into three sub-sections—blood, draughts^ and miscellaneous—and twenty-nine classes., lMzes are offered -for district-bred horses, both ^orou^hlired and draft—an unobjectionable mode of protecting local industries—as well as to open competition; and, in both horse and cattle sections, champion prizes are offered for th...

Is Perjury Common at the Police Court? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Is Perjury Common at the Police Court ? Mr. P. Pinnock, P.M., is often sorely tried, by what appears to be wilful perjury on the part of witnesses who appear before him to give evidence. Yet, a, few clever questions on the part of those who appear to prosecute, would go far to remove this impression from the magistratial mind. Some months ago, a publican in Stanley-street summoned a drover for having as saulted himself aiid wife while driving on the Ipswich Boad. This publicau and his wife swore positively that the assault- was committed. The other side swore as positively the other way, and things lookedvery ugly. Yeti both, aides swore truly, for the assault really did take place, but not by the accused man, but by one of tbe witnesses who testified to his innocence—m fact, it was Cpdliti f^ShortHwho was the delinquent.: But between police S i's, and attorneys, the Brisbane Police Court is always in a muddle.

Black Mail Extraordinary. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 8 August 1885

Black Mail Extraordinary* I bring the following under the notice of the Hon. John Douglasi the ^dvernirieiit resid^nt at Thurs Island. I am informed that a Malay, who is a licensed boatman, has beentfcfe attempted victiin of blackmail, though, happily, the attempt was unsuc cessful. An influntial resident of Thursday Island, i and who happens to- be a Justice of the Peace, attempted to persuade the Malay to pay him a periodical tax, either in the shape of pearls, or pearlshell, or rhino, in order to . secure the J.P.'s influence in procuring him passengers for his licensed boat. As I understand that the licensing regulations, and the boating traffic at Thursday Island, are surrounded by peculiar conditions, I beUeve this means more than it would if an ordinary tout were to apply to be paid by commission. But, even supposing it were no worse than that, fancy the spectacle of a Thursday Island Nabob and J.P. descending to the level of a common hotel runner or boarding-house tout! The ...

Two men, named James "White (alias M'Farlane, arid I believe his right name is Djtmk), and Andrew? Cowan (aliasBeechen) were convicted at Toowoomba, on July 14thcslast, before His Honor Chief Justice Lilley, of obtaining1, under false pretences, goods and money to the yalu*1 of .£9 10s., bv means of a valueless cheque. His Honor Chief Justice Lilley sentenced them both to 4 years' penal servitude. ] I#don?t know what verdict His Honor officially re corded, but, from newspaper reports of the trial, I gather that the two criminals were indicted, tried, and found guilty on the charge of " false pretences." There was no tgik of u forgery" during the whole trials Now, the highest sentence that ^can be im posed f|>r " false pretences," is three gears' penal these two men were charged withand found .ffuaMy of, that, offence, they stand illegally convicted. : * . \ ■ I. .have heard—never mind from whom or how— j thatiihe warrants by which these two mgnja,re held ) in /custody, state that...
