Taking it out of himself. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

Taking it out of himself. WHAT do we-that is, the community as a whole want to do about colored labor,? This is a question about which we ought to make up our minds, for while we delay, events are arranging a conclusion for us. Nobody who knows anythikg about the North, really believes that white men will work as common paid laborers on sugar plantations in the tropics. They can and will dp some uncommonly, hard work on the land for themselves, though it tells on them b6foremany years are over. But because a man may " take it out of .himself " in order tomake his pile as a miners, a contractor, or a highly paid worker at some { lucrative job, he isn't at all likely to let anybody else. " takeit out of him" for a pound.a week. Why should he F A laborer who gets the ordinary price of unskilled work, does not expect to give his employer a slice of hislife as part of the bargain. And yet that is exactly what a man who undertook to do a fair day's rough workin the fields all the year rou...

Fistiana. "Tell us the manner of the wrestling," —As you like it. Act i., scene 2. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

Fistiana. " Tell ug tlie manner of the wrestling," -As you like it. Act i., scene 2. NEWEST sensation in theP.B. is to train Chinamen and set them at each other. The first recorded prize fight between Chinamen took place on February 17th, last, in a room at Philadelphia, in the presence of 40 spectators. The names of the combatants were Loo Hing and Hi Sing Foon. They fought comically anyhow for four rounds, and the fall of Loo ended the fifth. Loo had his man then for five rounds, but in the eleventh Hi found his second wind, but lost his temper and went in like a steam engine. As Loo was reeling about, Hi made a supreme, effort, lifted "his hand high over his head, and brought it down on Loo's top-knot like a pile-driver. Loo went down in a heap, and when next "time" was called, could only gasp out, " Me catchee plenty," as he sank on the floor. The fight lasted half-an-hour. A boxing match has been arranged between Professor Miller, the champion wrestler who came over from Americ...

Ananias can takev a Back-Seat. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

Ananias can takev a Back-Seat. ANANIAS is dethroned. Never again, when I want to confront my imagination with an ideal and. typical liar, will my mind seek to pierce the mists of ages and behold Ananias and Sapphira lying themselves to death. The ghosts of this mendacious pair may rest happily in their graves, and exult that they didn't die childless-that, out here in this new country, worthy descendants have arisen to wield with effect the Ananias sceptre and wear the Sapphira headgear!, The very latest, and the most audacious Ananias is the Brisbane Telegraph,\rhick ha£ ovA-Sapphirad Sapphira. ON the same evening that J. E. Redmond was an nounced to lecture in the Theatre Boyal, Brisbane, the Telegraph published some fire-breatliing lilies, appended to which was the mm deplume " Eva." That signature ^well-known to readers of newspapers printed in the Ejaglish tongue-and especially noted when Irish topics %|are tTie theme-as being that of Mrs. O'Doherty, a poeti cal contributor to ...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were Hot at the play to-night, Don Gorlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Student [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

The piece they ran this week was " The American," which they substituted for "The Strategist" last- Saturday night. The plot of this piece is not very complicated. Lady Alice Lester (Mrs. Polk) and her brother Lord Alfred Egerton (W. H. Einmet) are amongst Nevada miners. Jack Dawson, alias Gentleman Jack (alias Boothman) picks a quarrel with the brother and knifes him. Christopher Columbus Bright, a Nevada miner, (Mr. Polk) be friends Lady Alice. Years after, freaks of fortune enable both Gentleman Jack and Christopher Columbus Bright to visit Lady Alice's ancestral home in England. Gentleman Jack is introduced by two tarnished .scions of nobility, who have got into his power because he holds a document one has forged, and these men are used as levers to force on Jack's marriage with...

The Scapegoats [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

The Scapegoats OF the Sandgate railway collision are evidently intended to be porter M'Kenzie, and the driver George Ferguson. The first was put on suddenly as emergency guard, not knowing anything of Sunday duties; the latter saved the train from a more formidable .collision, got excited afc the escape, and overlooked the second danger. The first deserves severe censure for undertaking responsible work and protection of lives, when he was ignorant of the i details of his duty, and was unprovided with the; necessaries to enable him properly to perform that j duty. The second, in nay opinion, was only guilty of that which might befall any careful, capable man; in addition to which he had both his legs broken by the accident. / I But the public won't rest satisfied with the sacrifice' of .two scapegoats. What about the departmental' | administration ? Who is responsible for the crimi nally lax state of affafrs ? There were no signals; no single line "staff ;" no watches; no clocks; no...

Athletics. Abraham Cann is uot the man To wrestle with Polkmghorne. -COENISH BALLAD. AT Stantborpe L. J. Cook and V. Boyle toed the scratch for 100 yards, Cook receiving 5 yards handicap. There was a false start, and Cook ran the whole distance for nothing. Neverthe less, when they got away the second time, he won by a yard in 12f sees., though much distressed. The pair are going at each other again. At Queentoh (Charters Towers way), W. Smedley was foolish enough to give A. M'Donald four yards start in 100 yards for £5 i a-side. M'Donald kept his lead and won by his handicap. At the Exhibition Building, Prince Alfred Park, Sydney, a six days' walking match, for £400 and the championship of the world, was commenced between William Edwards, Australian champion, and Daniel O'Leary, champion of America.

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

Aquatics. THE Intercolonial Eight-oar Bace between Victoria and New South Wales on the Parramatta Hirer, last Saturday,'was the biggest aquatic attraction Sydney has witnessed for a long time. Some 5000 persons witnessed the race. The Victorians, who donned Oxford colours (dark blue), had the southern bide; and the N. S. Welshmen (light blue of Cambridge) the northern side. South Australia had been expected to send a crew, but failed. The Victorians at the start were the favourites at 3 to 2, and they fully justified the confidence of their backers. They ran away at the start with a 42 stroke, and held the race the whole distance, eventually winning the 3£ miles (nearly) in 18 inins. 12 sees., fully 8 lengths ahead of their ex* hausted opponents. Out of six such annual contests now rowed, Victoria's record is four wins to N. S. Wales' two. The following were the names of the two crews, together with their weights. Victoria: Bow, T. D. Brown, 12st. 61b.; 2, W. W. Senior, lOst.; 3, W....

A Eegion of Darkness, [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

A Eegion of Darkness, As religio-philanthropisfcs would style it, lias ob truded its condition upon the Rockhampton Circuit Court. It arose during the trial of Florence and Frances Parker for infanticide. His Honour, the pre siding Judge, expressed his surprise and horror at learning that out in the far west the residents were unprovided with religious teaching of any kind, and had no opportunities of attending public worship. A Blackall man thereupon wrote to the Daily Northern Argus, and hazarded the opinion that His Honour would be still more surprised to hear that in all the wide stretch of country between the Central Railway terminus and the border, there are no churches and no parsons. Even at Blackall, a corporate town, and the centre of a large populated district, there is neither church nor chapel, priest nor parson. Blacks and whites, christians and heathen are all alike in the one condition of religious darkness. To the cry from this Macedonia, bishop and deacon, presbyte...
