A Plea for the Blue Ribbon [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 September 1885

A Plea for the Blue Ribbon I have a great admiration for the hon. J. M., Macrossan. I have watched His career with pleasurable pride from the old ijavenswood days when he was known as '* Old Jack the Hatter," and I, for one, do not deny him the tribute of praise that is due to the architect of one's own honorable fortune. Jack Macrossan is generally argumentative and clear headed, and has a reputation for fair-dealing. It is seldom hesteps out of , the pathway chosen by generosity of mind to deliberately stab and wound the better impulses of his fellow men. But he did so most atrociously last week. For the sake of passing a puerile joke upon Henry Jordan, the ancient member for South Brisbane* Jack Macrossan deli berately winged a poisoned arrow against a; number of well-intentioned men who, conscious of past in firmities, have honestly attempted to achieve their moral elevation. I have no great admiration for Jordan. His legisla tive abilities do not impress me, except with their c...

A Wave of Ritualism. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 September 1885

+ A Wave of Ritualism, The Church of England people here are beginning to rouse themselves; They knowthat Bishop Webber's advent means work, and some of them, who have secretly been longing for a better state of things than at present exists, are already up and doing. On Friday night, September 4th, a meeting was held which, though the attendance was small, was yet the most indisputable sign of life the Anglican Church in Brisbane has shown these many; years. It was a meeting convened by one or two gentlemen who are members of the<<r English Church Union," and its object was to make known the purpose of the Union, and, if possible, to gather new members. Now, this society has existed ever since 1860, yet many church people in Brisbane have never heard of it, though it has done an enormous amount of church work in England, and numbers among its members 14 Bishops, 2,600 Clergy, and 17,200 Laity. The English Church Union is distinctly a High Church Society, thoug...

Mr. A. Gordon's Stud.—The Grange. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 September 1885

Mr. A. Gordon's Stud.—The Grange. The Grange is to the Turf childe what Canterbury was to the religious in the good old days, when we were all devout, and of which Dan Chaucer has warbled so sweetly; a shrine which must be visited to round off and complete the whole duty of man. And being one to whom the strict performance of pleasant duties is a penance I love to endure daily, I made my pilgrimage to the shrine at the Grange one day last week. In company with four friends, ali as fond as myself of the horse and his belongings, the memories and associations that throng round every famous stud where great horses have been born, and lived, and died, I " landed" in Ipswich at about half-past one on Monday week, walked to the Palais Royal, lunched, and, though Mr. M'Gill was out, we were allowed a peep at the landlord's for midable string of racers—Preston, Pirate, Privateer, and a brace of two-year-olds, to wit, a chestnut colt by Epigram out of Lilla, by Silver Fox—Legrand's dam j a;n...

Queensland boys, if privateers had come then, You would have sent them flying, it appears, Each private ear were lugged with private thumb, then, While Russian dames and maids shed private tears.

A Bowen Rumpus. TO THE EDITOR OF 'FIGARO.' [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 September 1885

A Boweu Rumpus. the EdITOB OF ' FlOABO/ Sir,—You have been misled in the Bowen School of Arts matter of Bradsbaw Barker v. Bourne; and, being so far from the scene of action/perhaps you will allow me to give the local view of the case. Mr. Bouraeis a most energeticcommitteeman, and the Institute is to be congratulated on the possession of two such good men as Messrs. Bourne and Tucker; for the present useful and creditable, building is undoubtedly due to their energy; and interest in the welfare of the Bowen School of Arts. Mr. Bourne is a fearless stirrer up of mud, which, as you have doubtless found out, often leads one "into a great deal of trouble. He is, however, always straightforward and above-board; and, if weighed; in, the balance with Mr. Barker, the latter will certainly kick the beam. Mr. Bourne said at a meeting 'that Mr. Barker's holding the position he did was detrimental to'the best interests of the Institution, ; Jf it is an honest correction, any man is justified i...

" I am." '* What ?" " Learning my lesson." " Oh ! I thought you said you were killed I'3 "You goose, what put that in your head ?" Why, when I came into the room, you said *Je suis tud!

Master and Servant Case. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 12 September 1885

Master and Servant Case. Dear Figaeo,—Being at leisure in Bundaberg for a day or two, I dropped in at the Police Court while a summons case was being heard. A hotel-keeper summonsed two girls for breach of agreement^ It appears that the girls were in service at another hotel, and interviewed the complainant, informing him that they had given their present employer notice that they would leave, and asking him for engagement. Being in want of servants, the ^com plainant engaged them, and the girls promised to attend in his service upon a certain date. This they failed to do, but appear to have afterwards altered their intention of leaving their present service. Wlien this much evidence was elicited from the com olainant. the Police Magistrate ruled that it was useless to proceed with the case, inasmuch as, although the girls had given notice to leave, they were not at liberty to re-engage until they had actually left their present service. The case was dismissed, the defendants having...
