That's the Way the Money Goes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 22 August 1885

I TMt% the Wayth© Money Goes. It is Queenslahder's right to grumble just as much as it is an Englishman's privilege, and I pro pose to do some t-all grumbling over the way some of my money is "being squandered. I say wy money, although it's pretty hard to indi vidualize the national wealth, and although my contribution to the national income is absorbed in, and mixes with, the aggregate contributions of my fellow taxpayers; Yet, notwithstanding, or, perhaps, because of, this absorption and this mixing, there is not a penny paid out of the National Treasury which is not partly mine, and to help contribute which I did not labor. If it could be saved, it would be saved to me. I have no insane hankering after letting the sweat pour off my brow, in order that somebody else may do the grand; nor have I the insane idea that, if we can only " get money into circulation"—maybe somebody ; knows what that means, 1 don't—every thing is all right. I can only pay out what I earn, what I labor for...

New Music. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 22 August 1885

lias the temerity to say that Quieens laiiLd .airless muBical than her neighbours, must repent , of his or her rashness in face of the rapidly inerea{£ ing number of local compositions, both vocal and insfcrumentaljtl^tgreetus almost daily, and con-, sidering all things, are of much merit. 4 Lying before me is the new. national song entitled ''Hands all Round," Tennyson's words pit" to a melody by an amateur, and harmonized and arranged, by tequest of Lady Musgrave, for school use by John Young, Manager of the Queensland Music Ware house. As intended, the design is exceedingly well . carried oiit, and, isithough the melody is of the ' simj>l6s$ / Order,! yiet' .sweet' withal, the judicious harmonizing ^ has increased its , effectiveness for school jroices, as-it. can be sung in two or foiir parts jo$> libitvmi and, by ■) tlie multiplication of voices, gains additional iord^ The well-known poem, full of patriotic toasts, mated by its musical setting, and the song $hoidd conunan...

The Cook Election. - Lumley Trill is the latest novelty in the Griffith line, as a candidate to represent the Cook electorate; Lumley Hill, the loblolly: boy of the richest squat ters and" earth-gobblers! ? If ; confirmation were wanted of Sam's "Unholy Alliance" with wealthy land-sharks, Lumley Hill now fuhiishes tha^t confir mation. ? Horace Tozer, a Gympie lawyer, retired infavor of Lumley Hill. Tozer has no desire to go into,,Par liament until a general election; but/ when Tom Campbell came to erief, he was induced t6 ^risen$ to come forward in the interests of the Cook miners, and, of course, as a Griffithian. Tozer had bushiest which took him to Melbourne, and, while away, he delegated to some of Sam's wire-pullers the power to push on his election, or to withdraw him at an y moment. The wire-pullers smiled on Lumley Hill, and withdrew Tozer, who has ^since, I believe, en dorsed their action. * ! The retirement of Tozer gives the Cook Griffi thians the benefit of a solid vote,...

Jumping Mount Morgan. Dispute about a Mountain of Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 22 August 1885

' Jumping Mount Morgan. Disputeafo out a Mountain of Gold. Mount Morgan, the " mountain of gold " which has been valued by experts at i&7;b0(j,000, is about to be the bone of contention in one of the biggest and moBt important mining causes this Colony Has ever seen. Mount Morgan has been in neatly everybody's mouth for nearly the last two years, and every reader has probably hekrd that an alleged flaw has been dte-. covered in the tenure rights of the mining lessees, and that D'Arcy, one of those lessees (though ndt a registered. One), has laid claim to the whole of thlie area leaded, in order—(1) To test for his mates whethe* their titles are good or bad; and (2) if tbey are bad, to secure the lease of thg whole area in Jlis own name, but really for the benefit of his "mates. Comparatively few of my readers, however, will hatre heard that not only has D'Arcy questioned his mates' titlesj but that a number of miners have banded to gether and* are now disputing the new claim...
