Queen Street Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 16 June 1883

Queen Street Politics. SAID a calmati to me the other day, " I hear that Mr. Morehead is going to stand for. the Valley." I replied that I didn't know, but that it was quite possible. "Any way/' said cabbyi' "he won't have a ghost of a show,, A month ago his return was pretty: nearly a certainty, but now we (the cabmen !) will all work against him, and our influent fa pretty considerable in the Talley." " But," I asked,why this sudden change ? if Morehead was a good man a month ago, he is just the suue now; and must, be a good man still." Then was I indeed let into the secret of the Brisbane cabbies, if you please. *' Y'see," said, my Jehu ; Morehead has started a private faty and a lot of swells will be following his example. We .4^ going to let him see that we are not to be put ttpow. like that J " I bowed to this cabby, a true representative of the Stagnant party. OH! Say "oh" again,and I'll start.

Land Grabbing. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 23 June 1883

Land V A... .. j^.Thib is a Mestonian article. Ahem I Land; Grab bing as a fine art, is a subject which requires a. second . . Dr. Quincey to do it justice. It; was land grabbing that caused the Biblical burst up between Jateob and his uncle Laban; the Gracchi brothers of ancient Borne went to the top of the tree flying, simply be cause they insisted upon limiting the maximum holdings of land to 700 hectares-that is to say about 500 acres. Later on* the dnciek noblesse of La Belle France got themselves quite disliked by thehr^insati able greed for land, and then came the; Revolution. And to-day fre hear the same ominous rumbling of the coming earthquake all over Europe. ' The recent report of the two Commissioners appointed by the New South Wales Government to enquire into the Liand question reveals some startling facts-at least they would be startling if we did not -know something of the Land question in Queensland. For instance, one of the most valuable. runs on the Ladhlan river ...

The "Two Glencoes." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 23 June 1883

The "Two Glencoes." THE scratching of Glencoe for the Pioneer Handicap at Mackay again opens ap the old sore of the duty of horseowners towards the public; and. Judging from what we have heard, backers have some reason to feel sore upon the subject. How ever, we will take the matter from All its bearings, and will begin by showing the arguments that are probably, brought for ward in defence of the aetion. " The M.T.C. Handicap was a big prize," Mr. Kutherford wotdd doubtless say, " and having another horseWhich I believed good enough to win the Pioneer 'Handicap, I did not feel justified in risking the penalty I should have incurred by winning that race with Glencoe." This is well enough tis far as it goes, for a man, of course, has A per fect right to do what he likes With his own, and to run his horses to suit his own pocket, without studying the interests of onyoiie'else in tlie matter. " I' pay the'piper, consequently 1 mean to retain the privilege of calling the tune." But ther...

Stand up, Cowlishaw. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 23 June 1883

V Stand up, Cowlishaw. LAST week I tried to point out the difference between the Hon. James Cowlishaw, and J. E. M. Yincent. I pointed out how the Hon. James Cowlishaw is a member of a Legislative Chamber that has always been opposed to popular rights, and that he is running a journal which , some utterly reckless wag has nicknamed the " people's paper," but which is working, as I show elsewhere in this issue, in collusion with the Queensland. Mercantile Agency Company-a Syndicate that attempts to rule Queensland from South Yarra and Toorak, both very " ^fashionable suburbs of Melbourne, but most unprofitable " of Queensland. i ialso depicled Mr. Vincent to you as a man upon .... whom a fierce public light has beaten in England-as Itlifeftfunder arid proprietor of two working men's papers; He started the National Agricultural Laborers' Chronicle, a Leamington paper which was celebrated for its out spoken views in the interests of the tillers of the soil.

Verein Gaselligkeit. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 23 June 1883

-+ Yerein Gaselligkeit. My musical friends, with the above Teutonic name, gave a rare treat on Wednesday night in the South Brisbane Mechanics' Institute, no less than a special absckiedfest in honor of several members of the Emelie Melville opera troupe, who come from the Yaterland. I don't know what an absckiedfest means ex actly, but I know that the Teutonic souls poured out a programme of music which is not often given in Bris bane-let alone on the south side of the bridge. The orchestra, of ten members, was chiefly drawn from the Opera Company, there being only two outsiders-Herr Rosendorff and Herr Zemeck. The latter, it will be remembered, was in the Austrian band, and is a band in himself, while Rosendorff, on the violin, is too well known in Brisbane to need individualising. Herr R. Patek, the 'cello, directed, and Herr Wien berg led. Herr Draeger accompanied. E. Francis, Wilson,,and Farley,-all members of the opera com pany-sang, giving abundant signs that the chorus posse...
