Police Posturing. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

Police Posturing. ' ? COHSTABLV QTJINN, the brilliant ornament of the Brisbane force to whom I alluded last week, said in open court the other day what was tantamount to a direct accusation that Mr. Cooper, of the British Em pire Hotel, had incited some sailors to resist the police in the execution of their duty. Whereupon, 'Mr. Pinnoek, with characteristic impulsiveness, made soine remarks about putting some defamatory endorsement on Mr. Cooper's license. When are saoh farces going to end? What sort of justice is this which enablesa man to be accused without calling npoii, ljiim for his defence ? The issue is so Bimple. Constable Quinn has deliberately charged Cooper witii a breach of the law. It is the duty of the peilice to at once take action against Cooper, and, if he is foimd to be guilty, to punish him in the regular way. The fact that he pays a license fee on account of his occupation does not afford ther representatives of Law (I won't say Justice) any excuse for attempting...

Rest and Caution. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

Best and Caution. Queensland PutfcH f or June contains a telling car toon that is well worth consideration. It conveys, with out bias, the exact political situation of the present tim e. Miss Queensland is pictured as a bouncing young: woman of general good health confined to her spfa by temporary, indisposition ' Two doctors-Sir Thomas M'liwraith, and Sam (Griffith-are in consultation over her condition. As is often the case in real life, the doctors differ. Mac. prescribes stimulants and tonics, recommending especially his L.S.D, Transcontinental Mixture; "whereas J)r. Griffith argues that the patient has been living too long at high pressure-that she has been, in fact, going the pade too fast, and that the propier remedy to apply to her ease is his famous Rpst-and-Caution prescription. Whereupon; Mac; replies that, in "his opinion, the condi tion of the patient is such that she Cannot rest^ but must progress towardB convalescence or fall back into a w;orse. illness; that if an 'a...

Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JUNE 2, 1883. Billy Brookes on the Stump. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

''Fear God; Speak evil of none ; Stick to tlie Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JUNE 2, 1883. Billy Brookes on the Stump. THE morel hear "Liberal" political orations the more confused I become as to what are the real politics, of the posing orators-if they have any settled politics at all. Billy Brookes gave the Bris bane public an oration at the Albert Hall on Monday evening. If words mean anything, Billy Brookes is, on nearly all the essential points, diametrically op posed to Sam Griffith-the very man whom, I pre sume, he yet continues to recognise as his political leader. This, then, is the honest, conscientious poli tician; the man who brags that he belongs to an old fashioned school of honesty,'and is a staunch upholder pf morality and respectability in public men. This i6 the man who sacrifices everything to his convic tions, who proclaims from the housetop his immacu late purity and steadfastness to true principles. And yet, who follows a leader with whom he ra...

Cairns Disfranchised. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

Cairns Disfranchised. At the last Annual Bevision Court held at Her berton, the Bench-that is, the Police Magistrate omitted to. insert on the rolls for the current year the names of those who were on the rolls for 1882. Hence, over 200 electors who reside ip. and about the township of Cairns, in the Cook district, hare been disqualified., The Police Magistrate is Wv M. Mow bray, and he C. P. S. is B; M'&auran. The former is an old civil servant, for whom there is no excuse for the exhibition of such ignorance or negligence. M'Gauran is an official new chum, and may, there fore, be partially excused. After the disfranchised residents of Cairns, my warmest sympathies are with Mr. Meston, wto would^, have,, been returned un opposed. Thus, another straight vote has been lpst to M'llwraith. [N.B.-This is a remarkable illustration of the Opposition theory that the Government keep a cute eye "all over the colony, and work the oracle to stuff all the rolls.]

Weld-Blundell's District. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

Weld-Blundell's District. Whilb Weld-Blundell is stumping the country and . preaching an ; incoherent crusade against the Transcontinental Railway (oh! by-the-way, I liear that Weld-Blundell is to second the Vote of want of confidence that. Griffith is to' move against M'Ewraith) his own district has, by various palpable signs, passed a vote of want of confidence in him. The Peak Downs Telegram, a paper published at Cler mont, in the midst of a huge squatting district, in the centre of Queensland-a paper which of necessity knows whether the Transcontinental Line would be beneficial or not, speaks out thus fearlessly and sensibly. It may be urged that we can do Without a Transcontinental Railway. So we can, just ashman with a wheelbarrow will be satisfied as long as he cannot afford to employ a dray. The foremost want of the colony is roads, and if the opponents of the Transcontinental scheme could suggest a better and more economical way of meetingthis want than by means of a rail w...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 2 June 1883

Football. THE Rovers had a day of it down at Kedron Park on Saturday. The muster was exceeding good, especially so early for the season, of New Farm and Valley men. Huntingdon and Cooper were skippers for sides chosen, and showed a little tact in the handling of their men. Cooper's side got licked-in fact the Cooper was walked round this time, not the cask. The entries for the Toowong Sports closed on Saturday flight. The muater of footballers was very good, the majority of events being filled by most of those runners who have taken part in the Club Sports. Should the weather prove fine there is nothing to prevent a jolly afternoon, and sopie really good run-1 ning sliouli be seen qn the course. As for trainihg, FIGARO, in the wisdom of experience, might give a gentle tip ft training for these football sports.
