Desperate Encounter at Mackay. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 12 May 1883

Desperate Encounter at Mackay. DESPEBATB ructions up at Mackay. The Kanaka boys rolled up in two mobs on Sunday, April 15th, their dusky blood all on the boil. It was a case of Tanna men against a crowd hailing from Solomon Island-about 80 of the former to 50 of the latter. The battleground was the Lagoons Reserve, the time shortly after'3 p.m. The two mobs marched fearlessly onwards till they were within 150 yards of each other. They were armed with bows and arrows-the latter heavily tipped with several inches of iron. They boldly yelled at each other for over an hour, inviting the foe to come on and be killed. At last, a deathless hero from Tanna let fly an arrow, and the Solomon men executed a masterly retreat of about 300 yards. Then, after another hour's yelling, a Solomon brave fired off his arrowy and the Tanna men were repulsed hip and thigh back to their first position. This was too much for savage blood to endure, and the engage ment became general, the foes getting occasi...

Thady O'Kane, [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 12 May 1883

Thady O'Kane, RECENTLY, on behalf of the Charters Towers Miners, demanded from Sam Griffith, an -explanation of his real sentiments respecting Ctolies and Chinese. Thady has now got what he wanted. Sam has definitely made a statement-or, rather, definitely avoided an explanation. It is certain that Sam is an advocate of colored labor, but he has so many friends to please, that he'is floundering around for a set of words that shall ?offend none. It is now placed beyond dispute that he is strongly pro-Chinese; although his organ/ the Telegraph, thinking that Samuel hud revealed,too much of his sentiments, cut in after wards with a jesuitical explanation of the why and wherefore. Here is the sophistry urgedChinamen are less dangerous than Coolies, because we have already legislated against their influx. This is puerile. "What has been done in the case of Chinese, can also be done in the case of Coolies. And M'Hwraith is to bring forward some Coolie legislation next session.

As Others See Us. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 12 May 1883

As Others See Us. THE Sydney " Evening Neios," under date April 30th, writes of the "Queensland FIGARO:-The last number of that bright little weekly " Figaro/' -which is edited and published by Mr. J. Edgar Byrne, of Brisbane, possesses more than average merit, and gives a truthful, vivid, and highly interesting glimpse of social life in the northern col ony. The writers in " Figaro" do not mince matters j they hit out "straight from the shoulder" at the"slightest abuse; they claim to be the people's friends, and they, therefore, keep a most jealous watch over the people's interests. But "Figaro" holds rigidly aloof from all scurrility, spitefulness, and gross personalities. There are no " character assassins " on its staff, and as a con sequence, the paper is welcomed on all sides. Mo wonder that " Figaro," although hardly three months old, is already a big " boom/' If it maintains its present repu tation" it will soon be a power in Queensland. "With the number under notice is pres...

Big Ben Bang. THERE'S ft mighty flood of rapture, And it couldn't wefll be greater, - In the North about the capture Of a darned old alligator. It was up at the Endeavour That'this Saurian long sported, 'Twns the biggest reptile ever That in Queensland creeks cavorted. It was christened Benjamin, I can't teil you why or when, Ev'ry white man, black and giu ^ Knew the varmint as " Big Ben." ^ ? He would swallow any flesh stuff, - Horse, or dog, or animile, He was nuts on any fresh stuff-. Masticating crockydile. Mr. Asmus had a puppy, Fond of swimming in the river. Big Ben, one night, feeling suppy, Gulped him down whole-lights and liver i A's pet pig next went in mourning. Curled its tail and kicked the bucket, Had it lived on, Borrow-scorning, Mister Asmus might have stuck it. But it grieved sore for the canine, Passed through melancholy phases, Before a man could say " nine," Turned its toes up to the daisies. Asmus stuffed it full of pison, Pitched its carcase in the water, Watch...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1883. "An Unholy Alliance." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 12 May 1883

*. Fear God; Speak ieyll of none ; ... Stick to tne Truth j and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1883. "An Unholy Alliance." SAMUEL GRIFFITH at the Town Hall on Tuesday evening repudiated FIGARO'S accusation that his party, through him, had formed an " Unholy Alli ance." Nothing is easier.than to make a blank de nial. Talk is only wind. Breath is froth. Words are as often lies as they are truths. If I deny Mr. Griffith's denial, I have said as much as he has, and we are quits. But 1 wouldn t waste time and breath in such useless gasconading. A clever special pleader can always prove that black is white. What I say to every man is, "Never mind his gas; Look at Ms crowd!'* If a man says that he is not hand-in-glore with certain persons, and you see those very people at his elbow posing as his prominent friends, his denial is useless. He tries to deceive you through your hear ing, but your eyes convict him on the spot of being unliistorical. Even while Griffith's denial was ...
