Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRIBANE: SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1883. Bravo! Mr. Pinnock; [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

'. Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth j and never be done/' BEKBANE: SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1883. BratotiMr. Pinnock; YOU'VE done a downright piece of good from your seat on the Bench, with respect to that poor imbecile cripple, Bella Gkmn, who, though over 20 years of age, looked only a child-a poor, miserable starveling of a child. I rejoice to hear you say that, if you can prevent it, you will see that William Hallo ran's license is not renewed. Here is a poor imbecile, who has been his household slaVe and knockabout, and (Woa! Emma) barmaid for many years, who has nursed all his children, who was originally left as a sacred legacy by a dying mother, and who has been badly clothed, apparently poorly-fed, well beaten and never paid. The imbecile is found to be pregnant, and this is put forward as an excuse to turn her incontinently out of the house. The girl-idiot the pregnant cripple, sinks down with fatigue by the Theatre Boyal right-of-way, where she is found by the pol...

PBENTICE CHALLENGE CUP. QUEEN'S PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

PBENTICE CHALLENGE CUP. QCEEN'S PARK. - Stanley V. Union.-These players may fairly claim, on the strength of this season's results, to be the first two clubs in rank, and they have for some time contemplated this match with much interest. Being mutually anxious for a trial of strength, the additional incentive that it was a cup match has brought the feeling of rivalry up to a red heat. They put into the field, it is presumed, the best elevens they have mustered yet. The Stanleys had .not one weak man, but their opponents .missed A. White, who, poor fellow, has played cricket in delirium. He has been laid up with fever, but how is on the road to recovery.. The other leading clubs having, doubtless on account of the terribly bad wickets where their matches wore to be played, cried theui off, there was a larger number of cricketer witnesses than usual, and the fair sex-bless their little hearts-by their presence, inspired the contestants with an ardent desire to do or die. We w.^re ple...

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if they were the world's controllers." —BABNABY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

Cricket. "Jovial, jocund, jolly bowlers, As if tliey were the world's controllers." -BABNABY. PREMONITORY symptoms of decline are already apparent in cricket, and football's friends are bestirring themselves in pre paring for their coming season. "Well, footballers, come and nave your turn; cricket doesn't grudge it you, so go along with the fun; and if we don't join in and try to make our (little) mark with you, we will si and by and criticise your play in as friendly a manner as you have treated us during our innings. You will have the wind (and weather) with you when our half time comes. We are being worked down to our goal very fast, and we intend to make a good run directly, and quietly take a force-down instead of letting you score one.

A. Forger's Statement, [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 5 May 1883

A. Forger's Statement, ESPECIALLY when that forger is an old and hardened offender, must be accepted with ever so many grains of salt. Still, there is something to arrest the attention in the statement made up at Maryborough by John Stanley, alias James Wilson, olios Thompson, alias Considine. His record is thoroughly bad, but the story he tells is old and familiar to most of us. I have heard similar ones before from many sources, and I would like to be able to weigh accurately the amount of truth there is in this. Considine (I believe that was .his name when he was "in" before) pleaded guilty to three charges of fotgery, and then said he was a Greek, and came to the colonies when he was 17 years of age; that he fell into bad hands and helped to rob a public house. For this offence he was sentenced to ten years' penal servitude, of which he actually served eight years. He had been discharged with only 10s. in his pockets, and-here I fall in with familiar words-he had been dogged and...
