An Unfeeling Country Chemist. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 29 August 1885

An Unfeeling Country Chemist. Th6re is, within thirty miles of Toowoomba, a town which boasts ja chemist, but no doctor. The other day, a travelling life insurance medico happened to be Staying for* a brief period at this town. "?A. farmer called one. evening with the intelligence^that his little boy was dying. The medical practitioner at once left his unfinished tea, droveoutto the farmer's place, found the boy dangerously ill from inflammation of the lungs, :and prescribed for him. The farmer rode into the town of which I speak, and presented the doctorV preemption to the chemist to whom I hare referred. Now, it appears that this chemist has been in the habit of being consulted, in the absence of a medical man, and has also been accustomed to charge fees for medical advice. Although he was told by the farmer that the latter's son was in a critical condition—believed to be dying, in fact—this chemist positively refused to compound the prescrip tion ordered by the doctor, " because,...

Taxing the Poor Printer. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 29 August 1885

Taxing the Poor Printer. Queensland is already beginning to feel the hard i ships of Colonial Treasurer Dickson's proposal to levy an ad valorem duty of 5 per cent, on imported machinery. A case of printing type was passed through the Brisbane Customs on Tuesday last, and an ad valorem duty of 5 per cent, was charged upon it. In these days of free and compulsory education and of the liberty of the Press, it is an unprecedented act to levy an import duty upon printing type. The Press of to-day is recognised as the "greatest public educator existent. To hamper it with imposts is to tax education, and to subvert the avowed policy of this country that professes to recognise the principle of free education. It is because the Press is acknow ledged to be a potent public educator, that newspapers are carrried throughout the colony, by the Govern ment mails, post free. I expect to hear the whole Press and people of Queensland protesting against this new system of restricting Press privilege...
