"SPIELERS" IN QUEENSLAND
In consequence of a gambling row at Rockharnpton a fight occurred in the street between "spielers" and their victims. Eighteen of the former took refuge in a public-house, which the mob blockaded for 24 hours, when the " spielers " were escorted to the wharf by the police, and placed on board an outward-bound steamer. This movement was only effected, however, after a great disturbance.
