Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1885. "The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

•'FearUocL; Speak evil of none ; Stick to the Truth j and never be done." BRISBANE : SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1885. "The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon.'* The Pall Mall Gazette, a, London paper of fcigh repute, has electrified the world by the exposure of a labyrinth of hells existent at the present day in " the Modern Babylon/' London. The world stands aghast at the horrific picture that had been hung up in public view. Vice has been systematised with a;, cold-blooded calculation that seems incredible. The" people's daughters* the innocent virgins of the poor; and needy, have been daily offered up as sacrifices to the lusts of the wealthy. A widespread trade in human flesh and human souls has been conducted : with little or no secrecy. The virginity of tender age has been bartered .continuously for monetary considerations; or has been forced by artifice^ backed , by physical power. The law itself has aided this horrible traffic; the influential in the land have smiled upon it and w...

Press Camaraderie. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

JPress Camaraderie. The year of our Lord, 1866, stands out as a dark bar across the vista of Queensland's history. Nine teen years ago, a cataclysm of ruin eiigulphed the land. Scores of hardy pioneers who had laid bold hands on enterprise* and had discounted the future's promissory notes of good fortune, were Bwallowed, like pebbles, by the deluge of misfortune, many of them sinking to rise no more. Fortune's promissory notes were peremptorily dishonored, and, in many cases, could not be renewed. " And all the land was dark." ■ ' . . - Amongst the sufferers of that terrible time was George Wight, then proprietor of the Queensland Guardian newspaper, and who was utterly ruined. The Batik of Queensland stopped payment, and G-eorge Wight, who kept his account with that institution* was compelled to surrender all his property to his creditors. He had managed to secure his trustees against loss, and had also made provision for the payment of his employees.. Many of these, however, in th...

HOW WE ARE GOVERNED. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26TH. Proposed Railways Approved. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

Wednesday, Attgitst 26th. Proposed Railways Approved. Billy Miles ran through the plans and specifications of the Isis Branch Railway, the Charleville extension of the Western railway, and the Eton extension of the Mackay railway; l i ; ThatStatement Again. Discussion on Ways and Means being resumed in Committee, Nelson opened the ball by complaining of the vagueness of Dickie's statement and the way in which members were mystified by " apparent" and: "actual" balances, expenditures and credits. He sounded the key note of opposition to indirect taxa tion and would like to see the wasteful Customs duties abolished* : Horwitz agreed to disagree with Nelson, wanted more spirit-tax* didn't like the beer-tax, applauded the timber-tax, but begged Dickie to let up on the machinery tax. Ferguson, however, wanted Economy, not Increased Taxation, asserting that the country generally was in a bad state; could not afford £50,000, for the sugar men ; need not set aside £100,000 for a rabbit fenc...

Dingoes and Kangaroos. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

Dingoes and Kangaroos. " W.S." (Nebo) writes commenting upon a communication, recently published in Figabo, relating an incident about a dingo, chasing a kangaroo to where another dingo was larking in ambush, and telling how the two native dogs slew the marsupial. u W.S. •' saysf< The writer of that article says nothing about the damage causedby the dingo amongst sheep and young calves, I have been amongst sheep and cattle for the past 25 years, and have never seen an insatnceof the kind mentioned by your correspondent ; indeed, I think the yarn about1 dingoes hunting kangaroos in the manner described, is rather far-fetched.' One dingo Will never cattfba kangaroo, though, a mob of ^dingoes may chase one bccasiduaUy. I am certain that dingoes are far more hurtful to stock than marsupials, andtheir extermination is far more heCesBary than is that of even the 'kangaroo.*' : ♦•" ;...

Aquatics. Misrepresenting Maryborough Clubs. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

Aquatics. „ . : Misrepresenting Mary"borougli Clubs. To the Editor of Figaro.-—Sir,—Under the head- : ing of "Aquatics," in your issue of 22ndinsfc., yori published an article from "information received/* -which is so full of misstatements;, and so much; calculated to cause the " disagreeableness " which is erroneously asserted already to exist between the Maryborough arid the Wide Bay Bowing Clubs, that I. deem it my duty to place the facts in proper light i before your headers. I may preface what I have to say, by stating that my information is derived from personal attendance' at most of . the meetings, and from the Minute Books of hoth clubs, and the Regatta Committee as well. • The Maryborough Rowing Club does not deem itself more aristocratic than its rival, and its numbers are not" chiefly recruited from the ranks of lawyers, bank clerks, &c.;" for, as a matter of fact, there is neither a lawyer, nor a bank clerk, on the Committee or in any of the seniororews; althoug...

Love Letters. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

Love Letters. Love letters should contain neither name nor address. If they are properly signed and dated, they are apt to come back after many days, and they are not always welcome, A sad instance of this happened about a week ago. A letter of this de scription had been written, and sent to a. station out West. The person to whom it was addressed, was travelling at the time, and the letter was sent on to " try^r—first one township or station, and then another. It was also advertised; and; finally, after about twelve months travelling, was opened by the Post Office authorities and sent back to the writer. The old ballad says,"Ze Tempt fait passer I'Amour" and the ultimate fate of this unfortunate epistle confirmed the truth of the song. Its author and owner received it as if it had come. from a quaran tined ship, and, in all probability, had not been properly fumigated. Then the faithless one broke open the first envelope, looked cautiously, but with out touching it, into the second...

Farewells. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

Farewells. Bemenyi, the ,violinist, has bidden Brisbane fare well for Batavia, closing up 'with a crowded benefit on Saturday night last. St; Leon's Circus gave its last performance on the same evening. During the last few evenings, the programme "was rendered more attractive by the inclusion of some sensational exhibition rifle-shooting by Col. Ike Austin, an old American Indian-fighter. The circus v> ',-vfc Ipswich-wards. . The Sleepy Hollow in the bight of Port Denison has been awakened up by the Eloise Juno Dramatic Company's representations of "Jeannie Deans," "The Colleen Bawn" Rob Boy," " Bonnie Fish wife/' and "Lady Audley's Secret," to isuch an extent, that the Company left £200 richer than on arrival there. But then, haven't people still hopes in Bo wen, from Chubb's Haughton Gap agitation P And that, too, although Billy Miles says the pro posed line would be a downright swindle on the country, and that, when he himself went on a Haughton Gap hunting expedition, he coul...
