The Trigger. LOGAN AND ALBERT GUN CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 July 1883

The Trigger. LOGAN AND ALBERT GUN CLUB. THE quarterly meeting of the above club was held at Bean* desert, on Friday last, when there was a very fair roll up. The weather was beautiful, and the birds, of which there were plenty, were very good ; more especially considering the short time they bad for recovering after the confinement during the journey up. The new traps, three in number, the gift of Lord Henry Phipps, and made on the same principle ds those used by the Brisbane gun club, gave great satisfaction. live sweeps were shot off with the following results Sweep No. 1, won by Mr. Primrose. " No. 2, " Mr. Boyd.; " No. 3, " Mr; Barker. " No. 4, " Mr. Boyd. " H°-5. " The shooting throughout was well up to the average, and, when over, an adjournment wasmade to host Stretton, where au excellent repast was awaiting the shootists.

The Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 7 July 1883

Tlie Wheels. THE Cleveland "sliivoo" was something bully. Bust-up wheels, broken wings and legs, battered heads and sore shins are all the go amongst our boys now. The ruffian that worked up that Cleveland run ought to be mangled and little pieces of ' him distributed amongst his unfortunate victims, ns a memento of the sickest day's outing that the wheels have to record as yet. Diddy was amongst the crowd that started and led a merry dance, till of course, in his usual style, he must needs " put it on" just a little "too heavy" and a broken handle was the result. This meant a tramp back home of about teni miles with the handle in his pocket instead of a genial flask to revive his much drooped spirits. "What a picture for Dord he must have presented when his Hamlet-like phiz became attenuated at the delightful prospect of that long lonely tramp home. Don't come it "quite so heavy" for the future "Diddy," we like your style immensely, and hate to see our favourite in a mess. Of cours...

A word to the Member for Stanley. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro — 14 July 1883

A word to the Member for. Stanley. I PROMISED last week to have a yarn with the HONOEABLE (put that word in large capitals, please, dear printer!) Member for Stanley-Willie Kellett. . ?. This Willie KeUettisa fortunate individual who owes his present publib jidsitioni and, to a great ex tent, the proportion of this world's goods he now enjoys, to the fact that the late Sir Joshua Peter Bell found that he was a good manager of horse flesh, and, with the easy good-nature and generosity that distinguished that gentleman, took Willie by the hand and found a constituency to return him to Parliament. As might be expected from such ante cedents, Willie Kellett was a blind and servile tool to the M'IIwraith ministry so long as Sir Joshua Peter Bell was alive. Now, I pause to say that I am going to give my readers a few solid facts. Eight here, to show that I am not Archibald Forbesing, I will say that I am going to give my authorities for each fact I mention in this article. For this which ...

u Pear God; Speak evil of none; Stick to the Truth; and never be done." BRISBANE: SATURDAY, JULY 14, 1883. Sizing up the Political Position; M'Ilwbaith has been defeated, but not conquered. On his general policy he stili has a strong working majority. It was only on one question, that of the opening up of the LandsSfor the Use of the People, by means of offering land-grants for the construction of railways, that Mac. was defeated. And he was de feated-not by the people, not even by the represent atives of the misnamed " Liberal **' party, but by those who have always clogged the wheels of Queensland's progress, the dry-as-dust squatters. M'llwraith's broad, comprehensive, and far-seeing policy, was . Defeatedffby Land Rings by those cormorant-like landocrats, who will fight to the bitterest and ultimate issue, against any possible encroachment upon their runs, even thomgh (or, rather, especially if) that encroachment take the form of the settlement of the people upon ibase runs.
