"Figaro" on the Coolie Question. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 April 1883

" Figaro" on the Coolie Question. I AM constantly asked what my principles are on the Coolie question. Old Rum Puncheon, with his bloom ing visage, met me in Queen-street only yesterday, and fairly bailed me up. "FIGARO must pronounce. Wo look to you for an opinion. FIGARO is little, but FIGARO is good. Figaro is about the only independent journal now that dare speak out. Wliat, then, .about the Coolies?" I recognised the soft impeachment, acknowledged the compliment, touched my hat, hitched my breeches, and askpd my friend what he would have to drink. He wouldn't drink, so we had ices at Beas ley's, and there and then I held forth on the Coolie question to Rum Puncheon, Madam, and a few stray lotus eaters. 1 made my speech just as I might speak to you, or as I should speak to His Excellency the Governor if ho asked my opinion-which he frequently does. Why should I care for Coolies ? I don't expect any subscribers among them. They would not under stand me. They don't talk as FIGARO ...

Personals. "I hope I don't intrude." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 April 1883

Personals. " I hope I don't intrude." You may swear upon your Bibles That X herein write no libels; That I merely put my spoke In by way of kindly joke; That when venture I to chaff I but wish to raise a laugh. If, by my good-natured jaw, I should touch you " on the raw," Or just jar a little foible^- i Be you man or be .you coy belle, Be you Jonathan or Alice You may know'tis " without malice."

Political Parson-riding. A WOICD to the Rev. E. Griffith. I understand, sir, that yon have been endeavouring to intimidate one or two gentlemen by accusing them of; writing to my journals, and fey threatening that when " WE" are in power, this fact may seriously militate against thoir interests. " Let the cobbler stick to his last." You should have, reverend sir, more than you can manage in attending to the duties of your sacred calling. If you are at a loss for more good work to do, come to the PIGABO office, and from my window I will point out-I grieve to say-numerous festering-places, to be more frequently seen at which would be creditable to you and other gentlemen of your cloth. Possibly, you might do no good there; but surely the experi ment is worth tryiug. Now, once for all understand me. I acquit your son, Samuel, of'sanctioning-or of knowing without reproving-such petty meannesses and attempts at tyranny as I am given to understand 'have charac terised your actions. , That...

Playing Poker. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 April 1883

Playing Poker. X did not go up to Roma with Sara, and I didn't send a reporter, simply because I could not spare five or six columns of Figaro for such an utterance. But I heard all about it. The same remarks apply to the Premier's series of utterances at the various banquets in the Wide Bay and Burnett. Where it will all Gnd I don't know, but it seems to me that these rival Premiers will kill themselves with too much eating and drinking. Premier No. 1, or Premier in.esse, goes to Bundaberg, and he swears that the people don't care a Fig # for the Mitchell. This tho inhabitants of Bundaberg cheer to the echo, on the understanding that it means, in comparison with' Bundaberg. I should think not ! Who would expect thiem to do anything of the kind ? Premier No. 2, that is the Premier in posse, goes to Boma, and says he does not care a Fig (another Fig you see) for Coolies. He won't have them at any price. I am much obliged to i the noble Premiers for thus jbringing me, and the little F...

Her muscles for to harden j Her walk had no fixed goal, 'Twas only in her garden. That leisure should not clog This solitary ramble, A young St. Bernard dog . Accompanied her amble. She patted the pet pup, Or stayed her footsteps lazy, To pick a buttercup, Or pluck a streaky daisy. When suddenly the hush Of solitude is broken. Two forms upon her rush, "While not a word is spoken. They're dressed in petticoats, But this is merely fun of them; They're really male cut-throats, The photo's here of one of them.

The Rival Syndicates. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 April 1883

Tlio Rival Syndicates. The paniplilet is doing its work bravely I am told. The devices of our knowing ones, are something to make a saint like me offer up a double set of impre cations. The rival syndicate is quite satisfied. Syn dicate number one have made their move, the Trans continental Swindle-Syndicate number two, have n6w made theirs. They have exposed the Transcon tinental. After that we shall have the exposers exposed, and then, after a succession of the most brilliant play, in about twenty moves, we shall have check mate all round, and such an exposure as was never heard of before. Figaro is prepared to be shocked. The swindles which will be exposed before it is all over, will be enough to turn my hair grey. First of all we have, on the sagacious Samuel's assurance-Samuel is informed-that certain Mel bourne men are satisfied that the transcontinental is a swindle. Then, once more, Samuel is informed by Sir Somebody Something, a statesman in a neigh boring Colony, that he t...

*' Pear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Trutli; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1883. A Demand for Justice. FUBTHER advices fully confirm the report I gave currency to about the kidnapping of two block gins at Argentine, by two white men and four kanakas from Mr. Allrngham's Hillgrove Station. The two gins were bound and led away at inidnight on March 3rd-one of them being compelled to leave her pican inny behind her. I await with anxious interest Mr. Allingham's explanation of this serious , charge, for mulated, as it has been, in most precise terms. There . are one or two minor points' connected with this case which deserve to be touched upon. The employment of kanakas at Hillgrove and other stations far re moved from the coast, is illegal. It is also to be feared that it is the very general practice of em ployers of kanakas in districts where white women are scarce to aid and encourage their Polynesian labourers to ^pjbur^ black: gins, thus rendering their ...

Then, after an exceptionally smooth passage arrived at their destination on Thursday morning. Captain Buttrey displayed his customary good nature and fertility of resource on. board, in amusing the passengers when interest in ifche voyage superinduced by the effects of mal'dctner became apparent, and it is not likely his stories of shipwreck, etc., will liare been cast away upon his hearers.
