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

Cricket. Chatter. By Mid-obf. The Cricket Season of 1885-6 is just about to commence, and the propellers of the leather must now intake way for the wielders of the willow. In an other week or two, at the outside, we shall see the. lovers of the ga»neofbatand ball indulging in heavy practice, in every available nook, getting themselves into trim for the coming campaign. What the great cricket event of the coming season will be, it would be difficult for me to say, but before anything definite can be done, the affairs of the Queensland Cricket Association must be put into apple pie order, for they are in anything but a proper state at present. At a meeting of delegates of the Q.C. A. lately held at Sheridan's Cricketing DepSt, it came to light that there was only a sum of something like £7 at the credit of that body in the Q. 1ST. B;, while accounts to the amount of over £50 were laid on the table. The late Treasurer (Mr. A. Forbes) tendered his resigna tion on the 2nd December, 1884,...

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

Iolantlie. Welcome to the Brisbane stage, Iolanthe! Iolanthe! You are bound to be the rage, Iolanthe! Iolanthe! "We to opera are loyal, Welcome then to Brisbane soil, Welcome to our Theatre Royal, Iolanthe Williamson, Garner, and Musgrbve's B-byal Comic! Opera Company opened at the Brisbane Theatre Roy al on Tuesday last, in Gilbert'and Sullivan's opera, " Iolantha," to a house that wals paeked in every part, and that, indeed, afforded only indifferent standing room for the audience. "Iolanthe " is an opera that is at once humorous, "witty, quasi-political, spectacular, and full of quaint a>irs arid choruses. It lacks the coarser energy of *' Pinafore," because its speculations are more abstract and fanciful, but it is not too far above the heads of the people to prevent its becoming a favorite. When I call it a spectacular opera, I limit the definition to the dramatis personas, enough of whom are required at times to fill the stage, ks there are twenty-two Fairies in esthetic co...

Robbing the poor Printer. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 5 September 1885

Robbing tbe poor Printer. The Gladstone Observer takes.up the parable .that I gave some weeks ago about the injustice of the Government competing against private printers, by permitting the. Government Printer to tout for private work jit prices which private firms; cannot touch. This, wiliow the matter presents itself tpthe mind of the Gladstone printery | the Government Gazette, nearly every issue* appears an advertisement of all the requisite forms for i>ivisioiiial Boards. Then again we hare instances of. where bye-laws are sent to the Gazette for publica tion and a wire coming through O.H.M.S. (freeof course) offering to print the bye-laws in pamphlet or any form at a price which could not be touched by a local firm ; as a natural consequence the offer is ac cepted. The bye-laws, being in type asan advertise ment, have only to be made up, consequently, there ia but the expense of paper and machining, so that the local firm cannot come anywhere near the price. Last year the P...
