Educating a New Chum Policeman. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

■■ . Educating a New Chuni Policeman. There is an aristocratic sugar-planter, who is also a J.P. in the Mackay district, and extremely con scious lie1 is, too, of the dignity and importance attached to the position of an honorary magistrate. The other day, as he was driving homewards from Sugaropolis, he met a new-chum policeman riding towards the town indicated. The bobby gave a quasi-military salute, and passed on. But the sugar-growing J.P. was by no means satisfiedwith his salaam, and so called thebobbyback. The policeman rode back, fancying the J.P. had some business to communicate to him. He was right. The J.P. had M a bit of his mind'- to communicate. And be did it in these words :— - j " Police officer. You are a constable of the peace, and I am a Justice of the Peace. In future when you meet a Justice of Peace on the road, it behoves you to pull up your horse on one side of the road, doff your hat, and keep it off until the J.P. has passed. Good morning, policeman/' That bo...

Cholera at our ©bor. Cholera is knocking at Ausfciulia?s si^e-idbor. From safe distances we have long heard of - its 'ravages amongst mankind; but, nowy it is at odr elbow The ^cablegraph tells that the dreaded- scourge has broken out in an epidemic form atKoepang, in the island uf Timor, a Dutch 8etttanent»;f-.*TJie :di&jger is serious. Australia, certainly, has no; direct trade with Timor, but what matters that ? Australian vessels are constantly passing and repassingbfetween Australia and Java, and Java is prodigiously 'busy in commercial interchange with Timor. If the Asiatic cholera once obtains a footing, &s an epidemic, in Java, there is little chance of Australia entirely escaping^its terrible visitation.

Promenade Concert[?] [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

Promenade Concerts The first of a series of promenade concerts, which give promise of becoming popular entertainments during the slimmer months, was held at the exhibi tion Building, on Monday evening last, when, in spite of lowering weather, a very large audience rolled up. The concert itself was well received, Bauman's pong "The Bugler," and H. Sankey's "Queen of the Earth *' being particularly applauded. Encores were iiot responded tot The Orchestral Society played the overture "La Souveraine," and "St. Cecilia." The Headquarters Band, under J. D. Owen, also gave in strumental selections. Several instrumental solos were performed during the evening. An interval of 20 minutes divided the progamme, and this interval was marked by a, pyrotechnic display.

*' Fear God; Speakevilof.noiie' Stick to the Truth J" andnever be done." BRISBANE : SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26,1885. v Queensland Penal Establishments The Brisbane ^abi. The whole gaol system of Queensland is one of rotten administration and corrupt and defective discipline. -:; Favoritism and nefarious dealings with prison era are nefariously indulged in, virile black mail.and immorality are the natural fruits of a scheme fertilely productive of evil. The Brisbane Gaol, as one of the principal prisons of the colony, may be regarded as a type—perhaps it is the worst branch—of tfce whole penal system. At any rate, it is to the present condition and administration of the Brisbane Gaol, I wish now to draw special and public attention. . People naturally suppose that, when a prisoner is sentenced to penal servitude and token chaise of by the Sheriff's department, he is immured from the outside world, and remains in total ignorance of its proceedings and progress, until, by effluxion of time...

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 26 September 1885

Aquatics. Thus one of the leading sporting writers in New York:—" I think it is absurd for Beach to suppose he can style himself champion single-scull oarsman of the world and refuse to row for the title. Eichard K. Fox offers to back Hanlan to row Beach for <£1000 a-side, and allow him .£200 for expenses to come to this country to row the race. Beach may refuse to accept the challenge, but, in doing so, he forfeits the championship of the world. Hanlan journeyed to Australia to row Beach/ arid it is only fair for Beach to meet the ex-champion of the world in return on his own water. Beach will have to arrange a match with Hanlan or give up the title he won by defeating Hanlan.!' That's all very fine, looked at from an aspect of sporting generosity, but it isn't aquatic law. If Hanlan had not chosen to come to Australia and row Beach on his native water, Hanlan wculd not have forfeited the title of champion single-scull oarsman of the world. Neither will Beach forfeit his...
