[Extract from the Pamphlet.] "This is the difference [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 21 April 1883

[E*tracfc from the Pamphlet.} "This is the difference between the two systems. When we make Government' Railways, we-the taxpayers-borrow the money 'arid pay interest on it, getting the cash to do so from our land revenue* that is, by selling -so many hundreds of thousands of acres yearly to selectors or by auction. The debt remainsundituimslied and continues to be a heavy burden on us, curtailing our credit, and absorbing a large portion of our revenue, daring all the early years while the railway is slowly creating the traffic which will1 in the long run make it pay. This is bad for the trader, the former, and the workman, but Good for tAie Squatter and the land-grabbed, for it is when land is being sold' by the Government to raise revenue-by forced sale in fact--that they secure; their big estates. ' It was thus' the great estates of 'New, South Walw were acquired, and those on the Darling Bowris., IThe sale of thousands .of acres of splendid ^ncidtural land on. the "Beak .Downs ...

The Chinese Quarter. BY OUR TOWN TRAVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

The Chinese Quarter. BY OTTB TOWN TRAVELLER. I V bane-principally because Here, in Brisbane/ are to be seen none of those loathsome spectacles to be met with in Little Bourke Street, Melbourne. There doesn't seem to be a system ised practice of opium-smok ing and prostitution, such as exists in other colonial cities. The Chinese head quarters are in Frog's Hol low. There are one or two opium dens, bet the smok ing is chiefly confined to the Chinese themselves, and male visitors. It is regarded as a sort of re they are less inoculated with the yellow invasion. With Perth, and the New Zealand towns, I am per sonally unacquainted. Sydney, Melbourne, or even pious^ Adelaide. Hobart and Launceston are quieter even than is Bris HERE is much less vice to be seen amongst the Chinese of Brisbane tKan in spectable hospitality.

A Proposed Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

A Proposed Murder. Our quiet Brisbane community to-night (Wednesday) contains, to my knowledge, one man who is ruminating over a desperately-concocted scheme of vengeance. Bloody vengeance ! Murder!! The facts are pretty well known to a large circle of men-about-town, but probably the police are totally ignorant of even the least of the dark shadows which this coming event casts before it. I am going to tell you (and the police) the story of a MURDER which, if no fluke intervenes, is destined to take place during the next 48 hours. I must tell it in my own way. Every word is as true as that you are reading "my paper. Listen! . Months ago the British settlement of Hongkong, China, was the residence of a gentleman of easy means. He was married. His wife was the apple of his eye, the core of his soul, his life's joy, his most priceless earthly treasure. There is no need to dwell upon the first transports of their wedded joy or the more tranquil happiness that supervened for a brief-ah!...

The Whirligig of Time [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

The Whirligig of Time Brings about wonderful changes; and newspaper politics, like misfortunes, make strange bedfellows. I take the following (the first) sentence out of Tuesday's issue of the Brisbane Telegraph:-" One of the most significant signs of the times just now is the extraordinary effort being made by the Ministerial Press to denounce the squatters and hold them up to public scorn and con tempt as the most grasping,'selfish, narrow-minded, and obstructive class in the community." u Most grasping, selfish, narrow-minded, and obstruc tive class in the community!" Have we not seen those epithets applied to the squatters times without number in the columns of this same Syndicate-ridden paper? i Perhaps, like Dick Turpin's Black Bess, the shoes of | this evening Pegasus have been all along reversed, and j have only now, at the safe moment, been set right. I Perhaps all along it was moving by a blinded and secret : trail in the direction it at last has the courage to openly anno...

Two Police Items. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 28 April 1883

Two Police Items. EDWARD-MAHflfe, "was the other day sentenced at the Police Cdurt 'to two months' imprisonment with hard - labor, for assaulting Constable Tieriari, a Too woomba police t>tfiber, who was down in Brisbane iri plain clothes. The evidence of the constable was, that he passed the prisoner and his wife down near Howard Smith's wharf; hade him " Good night," was similarly saluted in return, and then, without any provocation whatever, was knocked down and kicked. Thfc defence of the prisioner was, that the constable had insulted his wife by accusing her of disorderly conduct. I know nothing of the merits of the case, and if the constable was assaulted as he said, the separation of Mehier from his wife and family for two months, is only a trifle of what he deserved. I only wish ttf remark that a passing idea strikes me that it is a very unlikely deed for any man to perform, to assault another for simply saying " Good night/' More especially when his wife is with him.

Lumley Hill boasts that he himself is more of a Brisbane citizen than a squatter, and more, of a Queensland colonist than a Brisbane citizen; but, in the very next sentence, he says, "I have always .the alternative of moving and clearing out of the'way.'* That's his idea of a thorough-going Queensland colonist.

Justifiable Homicide. MILBEA. Nora, of Stannifer, N.S.W., was a beautiful young lady, aged 18. She was innocent, confiding, and an orphan. A miner named Robert B. Mitchell conceived a lust for. her, and assailed her virtue. He found he could not effect hjs object easily, and engaged himself to marry her. After this, he succeeded. . She found herself lively to become branded with shame, and implored him to carry out his solemn covenant. He peered at her. In a moment of uncontrollable fury, she stabbed him dead. A jury of Armidale mules has found her,guilty of wilful murder, and she has been sentenced to death ! Even if sentence be commuted, Milbra will be blasted for life. She will probably emerge from gaola broken-down, cave worn, vice-contaminated woman; Herded with the offscour ings of society, sh^-must; become doubly defiled. And for what crime ?
