THE TELEGRAPH'S APOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

THE TELEGRAPH'S APOLOGY. THE Penny-graph of the 12 th insfc. discoursed upon Mr. Griffith's policy of silence. Somehow or other the writer got a little mixed ; for the I last part of the article somewhat contradicted the beginning. It is hard to understand how the statement that Messrs. Griffith andDickson <f have made themselves known to a class of men ... . to whom both they and their policy had been misrepresented and maligned/' agrees with the assertioti that " it has not been any part of their object to announce a distinct policy of their own." One would think from this that the knowledge graciously bestowed upon the Western squatter must be very small I indeed. The Benny-graph seems under that impression also, for it apologises for the stnall ness of Mr. Griffith's favours by saying that" it would be most imprudent to play their own cards in contending With unscrupulous oppo nents.'' Whose cards are they to play then ? Bo the Brisbane electors like the idea of their...

LEFT TO DIE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

LEFT TO DIE. THE police authorities have reported to the Colonial Secretary during the week another of those painful stories which occasionally reach us from the outlying districts. The story as first to hand was as follows: About thirteen weeks ago a Mr. A E. Hungerford left Nor mail ton with a Mr. "Walter Clark and two black - boys, to explore the country northwards of Somerset. They travelled nearly two-thirds of the distance, to a point beyond the Archer River. Then, the country being difficult and rations scarce, they killed and ate three of the horses, and started to return. Upon reaching the Archer Eiver, Hungerford left Clark with one blackboy, ten knocked up horses, and very few provisions. Clark has not since been heard of. But Hungerford reached Normanton with one blackboy and four horses arid then pro ceeded Southwards, giving information the absence of Clark when he reached Cooktown. # * # # * But the enquiries instituted by the Colonial Secretary show that this was a g...

THE Q.N. BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

THE Q,N. BANK. POLITICIANS of the Jiutledge and Dickson stamp, and papers modelled on the lines of the Penny-graph, are always trying to cast discredit upon the progress of the Queensland National Bank, This cavilling should beputastop to once and for all. The London Citizen of Nov. 25, 18S2, devotes a paragraph in its Financial Notes to our local bank. As this paper is intended to discuss city Ibusiuess and finance, its dictum should have some weight. It writes as follpws: --" Queensland * the progressive' may be con " sidered still prosperous, if one may judge from " the satisfactory report of the Queensland " National Bank for the half-year ending 30th " June. As we have f requently to publish and " criticise a disappointing balance-sheet, we " may give this as one both simple, intelligible, " and agreeable." The balance-sheet, as quoted some months ago in our local press is then given, and the Citizen then concluded its notice with the fol lowing remarks ' " This requires no com...

LOOK HEBE, MATES. TO-MOBBOW, Saturday, evening all vou artizans and mechanics of Brisbane will hold a meeting at the Bendigo Hotel, (xeorge-street, to arrange for your Annual demonstration in honour of the eight hours' movement. You have gained this concession to your wishes, gentlemen, by your co-operation and the unity of your senti ments. Tou can now, before the sun sets, re^ turn to your homes, enjoy your family tea, and, if you choose, take the wife and bairns round* to the theatre in the evening. But there is in Brisbane another class that id not so favoured. A class that provides for your wants, but can not join in your amusements. A class without which you could hardly live, but whom you condemn to toil that often does not end until you are comfortably asleep. The shopkeepers of Brisbane are anxious that their servants and clerks should enjoy pleasant and domestic evenings, instead of fagging behind the counter until the night is far spent. It is in your power to help them t...

WILL YOU ABDUCT ME, IF YOU PLEASE, SIR?" [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

WILL YOU ABDUCT ME, IP YOU PLEASE, SIB?" IN dismissing the recent Abduction case Mr. Pinnock took the opportunity of giving some excellent advice, which it is to be regretted was not more fully reported in the daily press. Two girls had agreed to leave their homes, and travel with a middle-aged man to Sydney and Melbourne Luckily for them the man was prevented from keeping his appointment, and the girls' reputation was thereby saved. Luckily for the man both girls were above the age of 10. But for these two accidents it is hard to say which party would have had the most reason for regret. The question is, upon which party must any blame rest ? The Police Magistrate and Mr. Lewis both laid the blame at the mothers' door. Will anybody who knows our Brisbane streets say that they were wrong ? « Let anybody who doubts this walk down our streets at night. Girls of years more or less tender are walking about to late hours in imita-* tion of their frailer sisters. Jostled by hulk ing men, ...

'* Pear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE : SATURDAY, JANUARY 20,1883. A. PEACEFUL REVOLUTION. THE result of the elections in New South "Wales indicates something Very like a revolt. It is a kind of a revolution executed in the ordinary hum drum way familiar to the Parliamentary practices of those who have gone before us. The Cowpers, the Parkeses, and the Robertsons, were the radicals of a past generation. They succeeded tft the Thompsons^ the Wentworths, and the Donaldsons, who had come, in their early days, to be regarded; as cumberers of the ground. . Even the little millionaire baronet Sir Dan'll Cooper, with his defective asperates, was at one time an upstart radical, and undoubtedly he w&s elected Speaker, when first he was elected as a party nominee, in order to give point to the contempt with whicji the » ©Id fogies of those James were regardedbythe rising generation. It is the same thing now. The Sir Enneries, and Sir Johns, ...

A Northern Romance. IN TWO SHORT CHAPTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

A. Northern Romance. IN TWO SHORT CHAPTERS. Ik the charging little town of T-->, there resides a burly "butcher, who, for the present we will disguise under the name of Jacob Braun, and he is fortunate enough to possess a beautiful, and really christian wife. In the same town there lives an amorous old tailor-let us call him Timothy Cox, whose fighting weight is about 7 st. 2., and who is probably a lineal descendant of one of those ancient judges who peeped over the wall into, the chaste Susanna's bath-room Mr. Cox also happens to be the leading elder of the leading church in his district, and he is the president of the Good Templars Lodge connected therewith as well. Mrs. Jacob Braun is the Lady Superioress of the " Sisters " Scction, and it has been noticed of late that Timothy's attention to the business of the usual weekly meetings very frequently wandered from the question before the council to the silent, but seductive charms of his fair assistant. As both parties reside i...

AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART. 0! wad some sprite the giftie gie us To see ourselves as ithers see us! [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

AN AFFAIB OF THE HEART. 0! wad some sprite the giftie gio us To see ourselves as ithers eee us! Because, as is well-known, lookers on see the most of j the game. If you doubt it, just go into a Camera - Obscura, such as is to be seen at every English! watering-place. There you would have just the same sort of view as the Southern papers have of our Sam . and his- new flirtation. *Here is what the Sydney Morning Herald and the Melbourne Argus have to say upon this thing, which Sam tries to make out is really i u an affair of the heart." Says the Herald: " Pastoral occupation is content with a very slow rate of progress. A shepherd king, who has secured a large run, and ? who can command money enough to stock it, only j desires to be let alone for a long term of years. He has no passion for railroads, which bring prospectors, settlers, and people who will envy him his occupation of the land. . . . He naturally looks 'at the matter from his personal point of view, and a policy that wou...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 20 January 1883

CHAPTER n. THE loving pair Had Just settled down in the parlour, and Timothy was gliding his dexter arm round his odored's waist, when she suddenly remembered she ; had forgotten the u jain roll," and at once darted off to get it. Two seconds later Mrs. Braun's six-feet brother slipped in; locked the door, and then the fun . began. Mr. Cox's account of the battle is, that he was sitting quietly, " doin' nothin'" when a railway motor suddenly struck him on the nose, then a sledge hammer carrying a pressure of about 500 lbs. to the square inch, caught him under the right ear, and as he " listed" over to the port side the same weapon took him under the left, and straightened him up again. Before he could recover, however, a wild gorilla grabbed him round the equator, and after dusting the floor with the back of Tim's head, the in furiated animal caught him by the slaOk tlf his pants and shot him out through the back window. ; As he was limping slowly off, singing inverted psalms, old B...
