Oaths. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

Oaths. Well, ignorance has gained the day, in this one respect. What is the definition of an oath ? Oaths are divided into many categories; they are as numerous and as diverse as the constellations in the heavens/ But the great affair is to make the perjurer suffer here, and not hereafter. In Victoria, the Clerk , of Petty Sessions gives the oath; in New South Wales, the Police Sergeant; in this Colony, the Presiding Magistrate,—always on the Bible. As a very ignorant man (in this respect) has let go free,, a scoundrel who should be in Captain Ber nard's keeping, because he did not know the Hindoo oath. I give it here:— " Let a judge swear a Brahmin by his veracity; a soldier by his horses, his elephants, or his armsj an argriculturist by his cows, his grain or his money; and a Soudra by all his crimes/' Had this wrong crirru s ? Osculation is not at all necessary. Put the Book into a man's hands, and let him distinctly under stand that he will'suffer for a lie in this world, and no...

An Alarming Doctrine. (For Lady Readers.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

An Alarming Doctrine. (For Lady Readers.) A Bible precept, that, some devout4 ladies don't wish • to see | altered many new version, is cwitamed in the 2nd verse of ' the 3rd chapter of PmiI's 2nd epistle to Timothy. [To. ; pave trouble, here are the. words:—■ * A bishop should be blameless, the. husband, of one wife."—Fig. j "VTe often hear that St. John's is a "High Church," and some people even think that the ser vices at All Saints' are of an '' advance" type. But people who have been out here many years, and others who are colonials, born and bred, have very little idea of what a Ritualistic Church and Service are really like. Now, as the arrival of the new I Bishop and his band of assistants will surely infuse j fresh vigour into a Church that has long been j in a dormant condition, it may be interesting to readers of Figabo to know something of the state of religious matters in the country from which their new prelate is coming.. : :: But, before; I attempt any description of...

Canine Instinct—Or Reason? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

Canine Instinct—Or Reason ? The circumstances surrounding the cage of a' poor little fellow who was supposedly lost in the bush the othier clay, near Euroombah station, furnish <a strik ing illustration;of the high intelligence of dogs. The boy, who was only 4 years of age, was suddenly missed from home, his father being a selector. Search was made for him, but without success, until black trackers were laid on. After 30 hours, he was found within half-a-mile of Euroombah head station, in company with a dog belonging to that station. The frog was slowly but surely leading the little man on, encouraging hiiii every now and then by licking his face, and then moving slowly forward. The canine " reasoning "—I speak of it as /! reasoning " for want of a more appropriate term, though it is generally held that animals have no " reason," but are guided by " instinctf' — the canine " reasoning " (in this strictly limited sense) would appear to have been something like the followin...

Soldiering in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

Soldiering in Queensland. Captain George Alexander Maefarlane recently tendered his resignation of his position as Captain of the B Company, 1st Queenslanders. The origin of this step was an insult (real or fancied) from Captain Des Vobux, who took command of Macfar lane's regiment on May 23rd> and who was regarded by Macfarlane as his junior officer. Macfarlane relied upon paragraphs in the Defence Regulations, | which define the commanding officer of a corps as being the "senior combatant officer" on duty. Colonel French, however, informed Macfarlane, by memorandum, that he was in error, grounding his dictum on a claiuse in the Defence Act itself, and bringing the status of the British regular army superior to poor colonials: So Macfarlane resigned, and the Defence vForce has lost a good officer, in whom the;men had every confidence. The effect on * the members of the Defence Force is depressing, and a few more dispiriting trifles, such as this was, will make the Force rift. Al...

Fire-Escape. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

■. ^ v v . Fire-Escape. A new fire-escape has been improvised in Bris bane, which was tested on Saturday last, and found to be very successful, supposing that the surround ing circumstances are not taken into consideration. The whole thing is simply a rope " rove" through a block (or pulley) which certain " tarrybreeks," who have never driven mobs of "brumbies," would call a "whip/' The block was made fast to a protruding beam in the top story of Hunter's neiw boot factory, at the corner oLAim and Boma-streets, at a height of seventy feet worn the street. A band was not in attendance, but was attached, to one end of the rope, and placed round a member^ the Brigade, and, the others running away with the "fall," he was swiftly hoisted to the highest window, and rescued a boy, who had been placed in that imminent danger, with a. view- to his being; thus snatched from the jaws of conflagratory death. This was all very satis factory, and the experiment was rendered still more so, when it...

Peter White's Hypocrisy. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

* Peter White's Hypocrisy! It did my heart good, while taking in the, big tqw at the House on Wednesday last, to see Morehead knock that old humbug, Peter White, right but of time, for a bigger hypocrite never sat within the walls of Parliament. : What the Stanley people were about when they elected him, I can't think. , Peter poses as. the friend of the poor. He has read Henry George, and gone through the Old Country tooting his horn as the friend of Michael Davitt.. He lias gone mad with the t&oughts of better men, and would have us believe that he is ' sincere in his idiotic wailing against the wrongs of private ownership in land. No one will take me for a " land-nationalizer," so I can talk freely of my admiration for Henry Gteorge. He~is a man, every, inch of him, and I am proud to call him a brother pressman,' if he does differ in politics from ^ne. His reasoning is clear aB a bell, his logic clean-cut as a: polished marble, his noble heart shiftes in every word, and h...

Our Lovely Land Laws. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

Our Lovely Land Laws. ; Nothing has more glaringly exhibited the drivel ling incapacity of the present Government; and of Charles: Boydell Button, the present Minister for Lands, in particular, than the unhappy and tortuous career of the Crown Lands Act Of 1884. Misshapen in its begetting, it was doctored and manipulated so ruthlessly that it became a* veritable monster. Charles Boydell Dutton, plagiarising from Henry Oeorge's " Progress and Poverty," wholesale and without acknowledgement, arose in the firmament of the Toowong Institute as a brilliant meteor, and scintillated there by the aid of borrowed light. He talked Henry George to his delighted co-mates, but put- it forward unblushingly as, originating with C. B. Dutton. Then he took his flght, with the. aid of borrowed wings and under false plumage, into the Legislative Assembly; and, to the astonishment of all, was accepted as a colleague of the only (thank Heaven, the only!) Samuel Walker .Griffith. Dutton was a fit and pli...

JORDAN'S AUSTRALIAN HOTEL, Corner of Queen and Albert Streets, Brisbane.

Hann, on July 7th, had just made a splendid delivery of two mobs of cattle, which he had sent to the M'Arthur Biver, Northern Territory. These mobs numbered 1500 each, or 3000 in all, and were Bold to Amos and Broads of the M'Arthur Biver. The drovers in charge of the mobs were, respectively, John W£tsion and C. Willis. Out of the 8000 so sent, no less than 2946 were delivered, which is a remark ably large proportion, more especially when the nature of the country through which the cattle had to travel is taken into consideration. Willis had three horses killed by the blacks. Watson met Willis on the same day that this outrage was perpetrated, and he " inter viewed" tWblacks as they were roas...

Legislative Loafers. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 15 August 1885

Legislative Loafers. Hume Black has made a sensible protest against adjourning Parliament for every " two-penny-half penny show" that takes place in the vicinity of Brisbane. Such adj ournments are nothing hut the result of the vilest political cant and demagoguery/ I don't think many intelligent people think any* thing more of their Member if he graces every cabbage exhibition with his presence, or briiigsa. whole coterie of other Members to gaze wearily upon home-baked bread and garden " sass/' They know; if they know anything, that his business is at the " capital, and if he can find time to go home himself , he has no right to inveigle others away from business' which the country urgently needs attending to. But there are a few votes caught by such filibus tering* and Sammy is not above pandering to these few votes. He rules his party with a rod of iron, but he lets the little boys have an extra half-holiday once in a while, so they think he's about the best fellow that ever liv...
