A Little Plain-Speaking. With this week's issue of FIGARO I present my readers with a supplement, in pamphlet form, entitled "THE LATEST POLITICAL DEVICE FOR PARTITIONING QUEENSLAND AMONGST SOUTHERN LAND-SHARKS AND SQUATTING RINGS." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

I ask every tax payerin Queensland to, read it, and to think oveir it. Queensland ifi my home. My property is here. The young " FIGS" are Queenslanders. Therefore my interests are identical with every taxpayer. And my notion is to talk to them, as one straight-going - common-sense white man would talk to another.

The Funniest Thing [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

The Funniest Thing That I have seen for many a long day is the clever man ner in which the Allez-houp-la! Squatters have managed j to hoodwink and make catepaws of our so-called Liberal Leaders. An anonymous pamphlet was written and published to the order of the Allcz-houp-las! It was < a whine to the taxpayers to prevent M'llwraith from interfering with their runs and disturbing their cattle camps. When printed, there arose the difficulty of get ting it circulated without allowing its authors to become known'. Here, my friend Bulcock, and one or two other Queen Street agitators-men who have more leisure than discretion-came forward and offered themselves as willing instruments. I candidly acknowledge that poor Bulcock and his mates were-fairly or unfairly-" got at." I am satisfied that they didn't know whence the pamphlet caire, 01* the objects for which it was written. They, only jumped at the chance of a little cheap notability, the sweet savor of which consisted in th...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1883. Permanent Enlargement of "Figaro." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

<4 Fear God; Speak eyil of none; Stick to tile Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE.C.SAT^RDAY, APRIL 21, 1883. Permanent Enlargement of " Figaro." I HATE to apologise to a number of business people for the exclusion of their advertisements from this issue. Over three pages of business announcements have been unavoidably, crushed out. The fault, my patrons may be sure, was not mine. The exclusion was a necessity, as the favors came to hand too late for the machinery at present at my command to execute the work. FIGABO is becoming a bigger thing than I ever anticipated it would. I am taking steps to remedy any such defects as the present. I have arranged for new machinery, by the aid of which, and by going to press earlier, I shall be able to execute all orders to my clients' and my own satisfaction. I am the wrong mark to turn away money when it is offered to me. FIGAHO, at as early a date as possible, will be permanently increased io 24 pages, instead of, as at present, b...

The Squatting Rings. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

The Squatting Rings. A PAMPHLET bearing no name, issuing from the office of no known! newspaper, and entitled " The Land Grant Fallacy" has been cir culated; th^ougjioiit the colony. . When I have to deal with an enemy I like to see his face, and the veil that this one wears can easily be torn aside. Whoever has looked at <the business columns of the newspapers for the last few years has noticed the constant announcements of the sales of Western Stations, and the formation of great Pastoral Syndicates to purchase the lease -hQldiofvrHuge tracts of our inland territory. The purchasers of these runs, the members of these Syndicates, are southern squatters. In New; South Wales and Victoria they have reduced dummying and land embezzlement to a science. By their arts they have so diverted the impulse of settlement, which at one time promised to make the interior of New South Wales the home of a happy pastoral people, -that they have deduced huge tracts of it into mere wilderne...

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BARNABY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

Cricket. " Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were tlie world's controllers." -BABNABT. THE two days* match at Toowong between Union and Leichhardt Glubs, up to its present stage, has given the local team a strong lead. The visitors won the toss, and went to the bat, but. their lives were very short, if not merry. Sellers headed the list with 10, next best man, Mills, 6. As we must draw the line somewhere in recording scores, we draw it at 6. The total was 25. Armstrong would not belie his name, and put the leather along with great effect. 30 balls, 10 runs, six wickets, a, most desirable average, accomplished by much variation of pitch and j>ace, and exertion of head in the business as well as his strong arm. We don't know how strong hfs head is yet, not having had occasion to test it with our editorial staff. . (N.B.-Our staff is three feet long, and averages two inches in diameter). Massie bowled very well, and got two for 12, which is not to be sneezed at, but his aver...

Sporting Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

Sporting Gossip. Br HEBM'IT. THE meeting of the. Balonne Jockey Club com mences at St. George, on Tuesday next, and there shonld be some good sport there. The various pri vileges were disposed of the other day, and realised gopd prices-^^222 10s. being the total amount. The booths out tfrere seem to fetch more money than in Brisbane-£37, .£27, and «£24,: beiag given respec tively1 for the Grand Stand booth, and booths No. 1 and 2 ; and when this is compared with the 'amount realised fpr the gates-namely, £76, it will be eeien that great things ar4 expected in the drinking line from those who attend. W ith regard to the St. Q-eprge Handicap, in the absence of iany reliable information from head quarters, it is not easy to give an opinion ; but, as I said before, on paper nothing -reads better than Cedric, and : after him I; like; Recovery, or Three Star as well; as anything, I am sorry to h§ar that Empress, who WJEW; also very favor ably treated by the iiandicapper,. has: gone amiss,...

Hard to Please. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

Hard to Please. THE inability of FIGABO to give entiresatisfaction to ; ; all its readers is generally conceded; as is the feeble* ; iminded condition of the editor who attempts such a ; self-evident impossibility. In fact, it is impossible , for an editor to please any one readerall the tune. If I there is any such reader in Queensland, who is always I pleased with everything he finds in FIGABO, I do not ; hesitate to pronounce him inferior in intellect to the | Editor who expects to please everybody. The follow-1 ? ing pictures/taken from life, almost explain them selves:- . 11 lie old gentleman is reading FIGABO. He is reading an item derogatory to the Brisbane polic6> forwhom he has great contempt, consequently he, the reader, i. is smiling a'beaming smile of satisfaction.
