Fistiana. "Tell us the manner of the wrestling." —As you like it. Act i., scene 2. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 9 June 1883

Fistiana. ; " Tell ue the manner of tlie wrestling." ' "-As you lilce iti Act i., scene 2. Mr Sydney correspondent writes-Foley fougilt Miller in the Academy of Music, Sydney, last Monday, and got worsted sorry now he done it. From first to last Foley WAS never in it, but he fought as gauie as any.ybau that ever stepped inside a prize-ring. When the two men stood together, the disparity in size seemed as great as that between a Clydesdale horse and'a Bantam hen. Miller is an exact fac-simile of tlie Faruese Horcules, and Foley is a pocket edition of the same. For three ; hours the male, elite of Sydney, and the: beastly larrikin j mingled in the most social manner possible, and clearly proved 1 that the taste for blood which made the palmy days of Ctesars fatuous is not yet played out iu this enlightened' 19th Century. Before the first ten rounds werd fought it was clear to alt .that Miller could proloug,.or end .the battle as he pleased. His immense strength enabled him to break do...

The Wheeel. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 9 June 1883

.The' Fhhbo likes the wheels. TheyYftre the right sort, and can make things hum again when you like to put on the pace. Eight went to Sandgate on Siinday morn ing for a " run." Things were a little mixed at the start, as the rendezvous was not clearly fixed, but the boys bumped together at the hospitable gates of Newstead, where they all stopped to enquire aftei Diddy, who consoled them with the remark that, after all, his neuralgia wasn't much worse than the bi cycular steeplechase they were on foiv^;Oiice Outside the controlling influence of too much civilisation, the wheels went for fun, and they had it, you bet. Coutts commenced by disagreeing with his wheels on the top of the Bed Hill. Of course, the wheel had the best of it and poor Tom, like the pelican, hid his head in the sand. The other wheels dug him out, put the pieces together, and proceeded.^ Johnson be came inspired on -the Cabbage-tree bridge, and con cluded that a good bicycle was the meanest, most miserable, and mo...

Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 16 June 1883

Wheels. THE wheels amalgamated lsst Friday night and formed into a respectable body, of which Tom Welsby was the soul and a good old soul too (in the chair). They are now the Brisbane Bicycle Club, about 30 strosg. His Excellency the Acting Governor was respectfully requested to become the Patron. No doubt he will, for he loves manly sports too heartily'to refuse our Athletes anything in reason. Teddie Markwell is to be the Captain, and Tom Coutts the Sub. Welsby, Johnson, Dye, and Coutts, are the committee; and Stom is the hon. secretary and treasurer. Let us hope the funds will soon be big enough for a bank. The committee are to hunt up some pretty.uniforms''neat not gaudy," and the Club axe to decide on them and the rules . to-night (Friday the 15th). There have been no runs since last week's, so no one has run amuck. A pair of wheels made for Ipswich on Saturday afternoon, at least it is believed so, because a Woogaroo man says he saw-a few drops of grease tbe sole surviving rel...

That "Unholy Alliance." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 16 June 1883

That" Vnlioly Alliance " I UA.TB hwird,.. though I don't know how mucli truth there is in the frtimor, that Sam Griffith was seriously considering whether he should not pro secute me for libel for one or two articles-notably, "An Unholy Alliance," and "Behold a Traitor." Be that as it; may, FIGARO .has, been condemned by somev, as having ibedn too hot. No, my friends, too holiest, perhaps, but not . hot enough. I wasn't behind the scenes, but I" spoke fairly and squarely of all I did know. Now^ hear how the Premier treated the ** Unholy Alliance *' at Roma last week: J taws been a supporter of the squatters, I am a squatter my self, and if I did anything against my own interests I would be a fool. But I have 'conscientiously sunporfced&nd encouraged eyiry other industry, and politically I have borne an immense deal by having the squatters on my back. ; « . I say a more ' Unholy and Unjustifiable Alliance never took place than is tried to be effected at the present time betwe...

The Swindlers Exposed. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 16 June 1883

The Swindlers Exposed. IN the issue of FIGARO dated May ,19-the 10,000 copies is&ue-^-I begged leave to prick a bladder, under the heading of " Their little Game/' in which article I stated that the squatters were trying to bribe M'Hwriaith, but that -the latter would not be bribed. No other paper in the colony was game to take up ' FidKfip'p lead, and, no doubt, many of my readers thought I was only " gassing." Gassing, eh ? Just listen to these few words that fellfromSir Thomas M'llwraith'slips last week at: Boma: All the opposition to the land grant system, except that mode by the leader Of the Opposition-which is simply founded on the fact that I propose it, and therefore he does not count it anything at all-all the rieal-opposition to it is by certain squatters who do not want the land -to go from themselves. . .

The Stagnants. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 16 June 1883

The Stagnants. ^ It is high time we ceased the farce of outraging the signification of the word " Liberal " by applying it to the sleepiest set of dawdlers the country ever was worried with-complacent,' torpid, mopuses, who cared not which way things went when they were in office, who have no definite policy to propound when they are out of office, and are active only when ever the scramble for the sugarplums Comes round. Ask me to produce a man who is thoroughly anti Progressive, who is afraid to risk his virioijt further than an inch beyond his own nose, who wants to let things drift, and expects prosperity to follow just be - cause he idly dreams about it-and I will " fill the bill" by producing you a Queensland " Liberal." He will object to a scheme, but he will not propose an alternative. He will pull down, but he will not attempt to substitute any other structure. He will oppose, but he won't say what he will advocate in stead of the thing so opposed. He will shilly-shally and...

Mems. for Sam Griffith. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 16 June 1883

Mems. for Sam Griffith. FBOM various parts of the North, from settlers, diggers, and others, I have this week received many letters, thanking me for so strenuously opposing Mr. Griffith's statement that Chinamen are not so danger ous as Coolies, as adjuncts to our population. Here are some minis, received from Thoraborongli Those little pamphlets o! yours are read with great interest here, and mine has been lent pretty freely all round. The " Squattah's " rag has been pretty freely distributed here also; but, by Jove, yours has put a cliuker oh the latter one. Keep it going, old man. Tour views on Coolies v. Pigtails are upheld here by nearly every miner that, has read and studied both sides of the question; your issue of the 19th being read here with .great interest, and has already-[this letter is dated May 28th, and it must have taken at least a week to get a copy of FIGARO up there.-Ed.]-put another nail in Samuel G's coffin.
