HOW WE ARE COVERNED. Wednesday, September 9TH. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

j Wednesday, Septembeb 9tjs. J j The consideration in Committee of the Customs Duties TBill consumedalmost the whole of Wednes- i day. Dickson kicked against sentimental feelings about machinery, andridicuied the idea that the agricultural and mining industries could not ..bear the 5 per cent duty proposed. M'llwraith retorted, that it was the Government who used sentimental " clap-trap " in saying that, because tools werfe taxed, machinery should be also, and he denounced especially the ; - [ Tax fen Sewing Machines. He charged the Government with raining the country, which charge Sammy bewailed as un patriotic, considering that Sir Tbomas ought to be I ashamed of himself for saying so, as it injured colonial credit in London M'llwraith returned that it was still more uiipatriotie to hamper inining by taxing machinery; and then Sammy tried to prove how prosperous times were—or would be, if it wasn't for ,th£ drought. ■; v This! Was denied by the leader of the Opjposif loii, and the...

Queensland Figaro ”Fear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done.“ BRISBANE:SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1885 Is the Flogging of Prisoners Justifiable? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

"Fear God; Speak«vil df none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1885 Is the Flogging of Prisoners Justifiable ? Five prisoners, convicted of crimes of violence, were flogged in Brisbane Gaol, on Saturday morning last. All suffered severely, and one fainted on the triangles. Three Members of Parliament— W, GT. Bailey and Matthew Mellor, Members for Wide Bay, and Hiram Wakefield, Member for Moreton— wit nessed the sickening spectacle. They were voluntary spectators. They asked to be let see it, and they were permitted to be onlookers. Wide Bay Bailey, whose sympathetic heart is alwayB in a state of chronic tear fulness, then emptied out his overwrought feelings upon the floor of the Legislative Assembly. His two sight-seeing comrades followed suit. The three were, horror-stricken at what they haid witnessed. They said that the lash actually hurt the criminals. They called it brutal. They deplored that sUch a painful punishment should be sanctione...

Beattie and the Cabmen. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Beattie and the Cabmen. Brisbane experienced last week a peculiar strike. Fortunately, it was of short duration, but that is not in consequence of any large-hearted action on the part of the authorities who caused the strike. It was a strike that affected the whole of the public and paused the most widespread inconvenience. It was a strike of cabmen—who pimply refused to earn wages under certain restrictions. The metropolitan and suburban traffic has recently passed from the charge of the Brisbane Corporation itito the hands of the United Municipality, of which Francis Beattie, M.L.A. for Fortitude Valley, Chair man of the Booroodabin Divisional Board, and Hatter of Queen-street, Brisbane, is the Great Mogul. The United Municipality framed new traffic by-laws and drew up a new schedule of fares, distances, &c. In these by-laws, the Bris bane cabmen were treated as men who had abso lutely no free rights—as aliens to the community. Every possible harassment was placed upon the...

The Grant to Judge Pring's Widow. To the Editor of ” Figaro.' [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

The Grant to Judge Pring's Widow. To the Editor of " Figaro.' Sib,—Some newspaper writers appear to have seized upon the above matter as presenting a favorable opportunity to comment upon everj fault %>f the late Judge Pring, and to ignore all the good that; was in him. He made sad mistakes, no doubt. For instance, if he had spent the money in land that he did in horse racing, he might hare died worth £1190,000, as he was often ia his lifetime reminded. It is untrue, hoWever, , that debt was his normal state. When Jtatcliffe Pring firat dame to Queensland in 1857, as a young married man, he had an official salary iand aprofessional prac tice. The two brought him in an income of from jg^OOto ^61500 a year. Some years later, when Ins father died in England, Ratcliffe Pring, though the youngest son of the family, nobly undertook the fdle and responsibility of becoming the head of his father's family, and made his house their home, aud, in carrying out this self-impoBed task, he, for...

Parliamentary Elections. Fortitude Valley. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

■■ ■ ■ ■» Parliamentary Elections. Fortitude Valley. The election for the first additional Member under the new Additional Members Act, took place on Monday last, when John M'Master was returned as Francis Beattie's colleague for' Fortitude Valley. His opponent was John D. Heal. Both were Bris bane Alderman. M'Master is a man of small education and narrow views, and is a blind supporter of Sam Griffith. Heal came out- as an Independent candidate, but has been largely identified with the M'llwraith party, yery little interest was tafee'n in the election, which was regarded as a bye, and not attractive enough to cause excitement. All through, it was a foregone conclusion for M'Master. Every section of "the community interested was too languid to worry about the voting, with the exception of the Blue Bibbonmen, who worked their hardest for M'Master and trotted out a larger majority than would otherwise have seen the light. Not one half of the electors on the roll polled, there being on...

Germany and Spain. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Germany and Spain. Germany has receded from all present pretensions to the Caroline Islands. The Emperor William has signified his willingness to recognise Spanish claims, if Spain's authority in the islands is found to be effective. The excitement of Don the Spaniard has cooled down, and his placated pride is recovering itself. - Prince Bismarck has announced that the Caroline Islands are not of sufficient importance to tempt Germany to act in an unfriendly manner towards Spain. Which means that Bismarck has other fish to fry and can't afford to be drawn off 'from his task. The Spanish squadron at Tap j remains inactive and the German gunboat has left Carolines. The Captain of a Spanish man-of-war ! shot the Governor of Yap in the shoulder, for order ing the man-of-war's crew to attack the Germans who had taken possession of the island. Germany, however, still asks for arbitration, and wants a European Conference to define rules for Fapjiiic annexation. Great Britain is said to hav...

Arbitration Case. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Arbitration Casfe. Dr. Leigbton Kesteren, who recently sustained a buggy accident iat Petrie's Bight, in Brisbane, and demanded .£3000 damages from the Bfunicipal Corpora tion, submitted his claim to arbitration. The gentle men selected to decide the claim were — L. A. Berriays, for Kesteven; J. H. Adams, for the Council. The umpire chosen was Arthur Martin. Voluminous evidence was taken, the arbitrators disagreed, and Arthur Martin made his award as umpire. Dr. Kesteven had to pay £160 on account of expenses be fore he could take up tbe seated envelope containing the umpired award. Having done so, he found that it had been assessed at the ridiculous amount of JB100, without costs—each side to pay a moiety of the ex penses incurred. The matter may'yet be brought before the Supreme Court.; On Tuesday last, Dr. Kesteven was summoned to the Brisbane Police Court for having, on the 10th iust, UBed abusive language to Adams, the Council's arbitrator. The words com plained of were:—"The a...

Varying Breeds of Dingoes. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

Varying Brfeeds of Dingoes. My attention has been drawnto some Queensland letters in a London scientific paper. " Toomaratni ** writes to that journal froni Mungalalla,Queensland, and* amongst other statements, makes the following : —<fI have been sitting ftip last three nights vfctf get. a shot at a reported black dingo, but W nasn't kept his appointment. Should such an animal exist, he must be regarded as a veritable lusus naturae, the prevailing colourbeing very dirty yellow. There is an illustration of the beast in Youatt's work, but ears and tail are ineorrect, the formed being shown as; 'prick/ whereas they should.be 'rose,' and the latter about half as long again as it should be." " An old Australian bushman—who, curiously enough; happens to reside not very far from Mungalalla— writes to say that a black dingo is by no means a lusus natures, acd he asks me to appeal for confirma tion of his statement to any old bushmea who; like he was, were out on Cooper's Creek, ...

Grace before meat. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

We were a lot of young fellows, brimful of foil, and we were skylarking in a manner that irritated the mother. , That worthy -woman suddenly fetched her eldest boy a " one-r " on the side of his head, saying— "Shut up yer gab, you young devil, and say grace, blow yer !" Only it was a more forcible word than "devil" and a more blasphemous phrase than " blow yer! "
