Some things don't change.

From The Brisbane Courier, 16 April 1886 --                         QUEENSLAND SEPARATION.                                 London, April 15.   Dr. [Joseph] Ahearne delivered a lecture last night night on the   Queensland separation question and in the interests of the   Northern portion of the colony he demanded that it be granted   autonomy. The Hon. Harold Finch-Hatton asserted that the   North had not received its fair share of loan money. Mr. Garrick,   Agent-General, denied that any partiality had been shown   towards the Southern portion of the colony, and insisted upon   the advantages of the colony remaining intact. The Hon. Murray   Finch-Hatton presided at the meeting.
