Maryborough Journalism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

Maryborough Journalist PITT the sorrows of Gteorge Cathcart Oroig, :; ;? The Sat'day Yeevnun 'Emld's editor ; « ; V1? ' The local A. and P. Show flouts his rag- . ; "Won't let him ia as deadhead at the door. ? Then, like those madmen who believe they're Czats, Or other Kings, Craig plays fantastic tricks, And wildly butts his head against the.bars In useless frenzy, kicks against the pricks. List now unto this heav'n-born pressman's blow! He whines because they overlook his rag, " Since you have shown me disrespect, you .know, You'll no report get from George Cathcart Craig!" This " caustic man, professing to sell news, With all his " Press experience " (!) is a flat, Too " dignified " to stand a fit of blues !-» We'll soon see what the public think of that. Memo, for the Ministry. The Townsville Bulletin says:-" Unless a Redistribution Bill is passed during the coming Session, it is probable that Townsville will be practically disfranchised, and that the nominal repre sentative of ...

Sailors, Police, and "Pluck." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

Sailors, Police, «md " Pluck." Osr Thursday evening; last week, it took about 16 constables to arrest three half-drunken Sailors, in Queen Street. It required half their - number to- egg on the men to the point of resistance; and the whole contingent to convey them to the .' lock-up. In :the first instance, the men; . were doing absolutely nothing beyond talking loudly. It - was ? a' case of «f Jack Ashore/' but of the most harmless kind. Jack was goodnaturedly blowing about past adventures, and showing honorable scars and wounds* Two policemen^ without jtiat cause, rushed at one man and' "downed" him. Jack's blood was then roused, a mate came up and the police fled. The whole ' foorce," apparently,was telephoned for. The sailots; in the meantime, had gone quietly away, and by the time the sixteen constables were on the alert, had probably forgotten all about the first little affair. However, the police hunted up' and down all the hotels in the back slums to find their "men, and at ...

More Law. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

More Law. HENRY WATSON, who sued the Warwick Municipal Council for £200 damages because he met with a road accident, has Sawkinsed. He was nonsuited, and Judge Paul certified for costs. Watson had no means, and so the Municipal Council are gently stuck for a sweet £58. Isn't it high time that this absurd and harassing possibility in legal proceedings is des-   troyed ? Why should not a defendant be able to force a pauper plaintiff, having a doubtful cause, to give a sufficient guarantee for costs in the event of his losing his suit ? In this case, every Warwick ratepayer has been fined because Watson, a man of straw, chose to go to law, even though he lost his case. It may be argued that it would place a terrible power in the hands of moneyed persons, to provide this remedy; and that it would debar any poor man from obtaining justice, because he could always be blocked by being required to give a guarantee for costs. This would, indeed, be the other extreme of legal blu...

A Peep at the Shows. "You were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it?"—The Spanish Student EMELIE MELVILLE OPERA COMPANY. GIROFLE-GIROFLA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 26 May 1883

A Peep at the Shows. "You'were not at the play to-night, Don Carlos. How happened it ?"-The Spanish Student. EMELIE MELVILLE OPERA COMPANY. GIROFLE-GIROFLA.   Bring hither the wine-cup and pledge me, "The fairest Twin Sisters of Song !"   Two sweeter fays yon couldn't sketch me,   'Twixt here and the Old Continong. Though hard you may labor, you'll delve ill, Aid poets' fine frenzy is wasted, You cannot do justice to Melville, You can't " paint the lily" in Plaisted. Upon our last publication night the Emelie Melville Opera Company changed from:" The Royal Middy " to that brilliant. sparkle of Lecocq, " Giroflé-Girofla," with Emelie Melville doubling in the title roles. The fair Emelie for the first night was not herself. She was naturally sorrow-stricken at the death of poor Casselli, who had served her so faithfully as a business manager for some years past. The melancholy   arrangements for his funeral-though mostly taken off he...

Sporting Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

Sporting Gossip. [BT HEEMIT.] A CALM has settled in now that tlio Q.T.C. Mwotim; is over, and Mackay is now the principal topic of conversation; though the results of the Brisbane races liave rather paralizod betting over the Mackay events. When I say that hundreds to thirty have been taken that Glencoe wins the double it will be soeu what sort of a favorite be has become, and if he keeps well till the day it is hard to see where his overthrow is to come from. It would be most interesting, were Glencoe and Goldfinder to meet on equal terms, and whenever they do, may I be there to see. Johu Kinnie, however, lays that he is not at all anxious to meet Mr. Rutherford's colt, and jocularly remarks that he shall carefully find out what meetings he intends to honor with his presence, and then make his arrangements to travel on another lay. It is a remarkable and significant fact that though tho late Brisbane meeting was better attended than any that has taken place for some years, the numb...

The Nay of the War Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

The Nay of the War Horse. ARCHIBALD FORBES has written down the Transcontinental Railway in the Sydney Morning HercM, and the joybugs of the Opposition are kicking theiriears off with delight. But Archie's syndicate ideas will not bear examination-as extreme and bigoted ideas seldom will. He imagines three possible out comes of the carrying out of this Land Grant agreement 1. The Syndicate may lose, and sell out at a loss to them selves. * ' 2. The Syndicate may make a success, and sell out at a terrible loss to the colony. 3. The Syndicate might hold on, and "overshadow the land," -be the supreme autocratic power in fact. This last supposition is the only one worth considering, and, as 'Archibald Forbes puts it, forms a flimsy structure of -cards. He rants and raves about American rings, and Jay Oould ruling with his little finger a whole continent. He has much to say about the Canadian Syndicate, which he describes as the real Government of the Dominion. And he iBupposes him self ...
