Queensland Figaro "Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stack to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1883, Forbes' Phantom. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 23 June 1883

FORBE'S PHANTOM. Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stack to tie Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE : SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1883, Forbes' Phantom. I HAVE been waiting for no less a personage to come down south than Archibald Forbes. I have been t postponing some remarks in the expectation that he would be here on the spot to hear them.

Consequently, Tv I feel disappointed that the great war correspondent has not stayed longer in Brisbane. Forbes has distinguished himself by running a big lecturing boom all over the colonies,; 'He has also distinguished himself by writing a brilliant series of articles on many subjects. No living press writer 1 speak, of course, of men who write' for pay, as does Forbes-knows better the value of soft-soap than Archie does. You can trace it in his every^ utterance. With him, it is business - shrewd "business. He slavered Bowen, he bespittled Towhsville, a...

Too Horrible* I HAYB a communicatidji from Townsville that I .can scarcely credit. Yet it bears within itself every | -evidence of genuineness.. I am gravely informedthat a number of new chum girls have;been taken > oh trial at a Townsville mil linery establishment for a few days without wages, and that then they have been offered the magnificent pittance of six shillings aweek, being expected to make up the difference by prostitution. If my correspondent will only send tbe name of the millinery establishment and that of its proprietary, I will risk any danger there may be in publishing them. , ; , fi( Prostitution is becoming a nightmare in Queens land, and there is some truth in Archie Forbes' diatribes against Bociety here.
