Good Work. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

Good Work. IF my papers were to burst up to-morrow, ! should have the satisfaction even now of feeling that I have done work of which I have every reason to be proud. And I still have plenty of good work before me. Two years ago, come next month, Mr. Acting Chief Justice Harding sentenced a man named Brien to three years imprisonment for having deprived his drunken mate of his watch and chain. This action was done in order that the jewellery might be in safe keeping, and is just what any square man would do to befriend a stupefied mate. At that time, PUNCH -my property-was the only paper in this Christian land, that raised its voice ag&inst this iniquitous sentence, and pointed out its injustice. A trivial chain of circumstances brought back this case to my mind the other day, and I was led to enquire as to the fate of poor Brien, with tbe idea, if he still languished in prison, to agitate once more for his immediate release. I was happily astonished to hear that the denunci...

Late Sporting Notes. SOMK rnluable blood stock are to be disposed of in Charters Towers on tlie 1st of June, and they comprise some of the choicest blood in the land. Confucius is a horse that should get racehorses as he is full of running blood, being by Fireworks, out of Chrysolite, and consequently a full brother to Lapidist, and half brother to Bobinson Crusoe, Onyx (dam of Sardonyx), The Gem, etc. Besides this, he is a very truly shaped horse. Amongst the mares to be sold are Orange Blossom, bjr the Mar quis, from Spring Blossom,by Fisherman; Lady Lilliard, by Panic, out of Miss Melbourne; Rose of Victoria, by Angler, out of Bose de Florence, and others equally well bred. There are also some yearlings to be sold, got by Confucius from these mares.

" Black " Douglas. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

" Black " Douglas. A WOBD of warning to this gentleman. The last time that there was trouble made down here about your conduct towards the blacks, you had a very narrow squeak. Remember this. By every mail, I am receiving letters 'which are sadly eloquent of your continued barbarity to the niggers under your charge. The last communications to hand are to the effect that your steam-launch " Vigilant" returned from its last trip minus four black sailors, reported dead, and that no enquiry was held as to the cause of their decease. X have a quantity of other correspondence in my office which would look very unpleasant in print. Now, Douglas, understand me thoroughly. If * FIGARO finds it to be his duty to get on to you, he is game to follow that duty; and you will find in such event, that the embrace of FIGARO is no maiden's arm around your neck. If I receive any more of this kind of correspondence about you, I shall at once place it in the hands of the Premier, and not only ask, but d...

A Tyrannical Inquisition. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

A Tyrannical Inquisition. HAVE the public ever pondered over the true nature' of the Licensing Court ? Do they kuow that we have in the midst of our boasted free British Institutions, an irresponsible tribunal P Let me give an illustration in order to point my shaft. Eliza Lock was (and is, Up till June 1st) the licensee of. that well-known Queen Street hotel, the Sports man's Arms. No complaint has been made against this house, when suddenly the renewal of its license is refused. The direct loss to Mrs. Lock is nearly £2000, which she was offered for the business/ be sides which, under her lease from the landlord (who is an absentee in England), she must continue to pay rent at the rate of £9 per week for a considerable period. This to her means blank ruin. The excuse tendered is that the Sportsman's Arms is a wooden building, and that some three years ago, and annually since, it was stated generally that wooden houses would not be licensed. But at this very Licensing Court, wooden...

Other People's Money. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

Other People's Money. I HAVE the authority of Griffith, the great and good, for looking into the private motives of public men, to find out what influences their policy. To quote his words, I may state facts and draw an inference; and this is what I propose to do in regard to the Telegraph, his penny organ in this city of Brisbane. : The first fact, and a very prominent fact, is that the Telegraph is Mr. Cowlishaw's. No one will, I think, deny it. He manages its business, inspires its Eolitica, and directs its leading articles. And it is to is credit that he has pushed it, as a newspaper business, well ahead and made it a prosperous con cern. It may here be added that Mr. Cowlishaw is a very keen and successful business man. The French have a proverb, which means that business is getting hold of other people's money. Of course, in this case it is by perfectly legitimate means j by trafficking, speculating, lending, and by the display of superior acuteness, Mr.-'Cowlishaw has succeed...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1883. Queensland a White Man's Colony. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

'* Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, MAT 26, 1883. Queensland a White Man's Colony. I AM neither dynamite Rutledge, nor iconoclastic Brookes. I do not care to pull down existing struc: tures without endeavouring to show -what edifices are to be erected in their stead. I am not one of those who would abolish everything without first consider ing what is to be the succeeding substitute. There fore, -while statinig my objections to coloured labour, I hold it to be my duty to consider the whole position and to be prepared with some fair alternative. I will start with the axiom that Queensland wants to be essentially A White Man's Colony. It is impossible that a community such as ours is, ^elf-governing and purely democratic, can live peaceably on terms of equality, with a large popula tion of coloured labourers. We cannot allow them to vote, and we dare not trust ourselves to govern them by a Parliament composed entirely of employe...
