  1. "The Vagabond's" Occident and Orient travel 1881
    List
    Public

    "Do you want a trip to China?" said my friend M—— to me one Friday afternoon in George-street, Sydney. "The Woodbine sails on Tuesday morning, and I am going in her. Will you come?"

    So begins a body of work that stands among the most vivid and insightful writing about travel in the Asia-Pacific region during the last two decades of the 19th century, and certainly by any Australia-based writer of the period.

    This list is the full sequence of 38 travel feature articles written for the Melbourne daily newspaper, The Argus, and its associated weekly, The Australasian, by Julian Thomas, known as "The Vagabond", about his sea journey of almost eight months in March-November 1881 around the Pacific rim from Sydney to Shanghai, Nagasaki, Yokohama, Victoria BC and the area of modern-day Vancouver BC, San Francisco, Honolulu, Auckland and back to Sydney. The series was compiled, edited and published in book form as 'Occident and Orient : sketches on both sides of the Pacific', (George Robertson, Melbourne, 1882).

    With the exception of one issue (27 May 1882) missing pages in the Trove collection, the list is the complete series as it was first published in The Argus. The missing Argus page in the list has been made up with the corresponding article published in The Australasian (3 June 1882).

    The author of this remarkable series of articles was an Englishman who sometimes claimed to be an American, or more specifically a Virginian. He called himself Julian Thomas, although that was not his real name. Under his sobriquet, “The Vagabond”, he became famous as a popular exponent of descriptive writing and investigative journalism for Australian newspapers from 1876 until his death in Melbourne in 1896. Yet, despite public acclaim and professional success, in 1894 he was bankrupt.

    Julian Thomas was christened John Stanley James. He was born in 1843 in Walsall, Staffordshire. He seems now almost to have popped up in Australia from nowhere. At times through his years in Australia he claimed variously to have had medical training; to have graduated from the University of Virginia; to have fought for the Confederacy in the US Civil War; and to have been present, and imprisoned as a spy, during the Franco-Prussian War and the Paris Commune of 1871—none of which claims can yet be verified. Some of his claims—such as his occasional assertions he was Buddhist, Jewish, Gipsy, or abducted as an infant by Flathead Indians—were plainly ironical, but in general he cultivated an air of mystery about his past as part of his "Vagabond" public persona. Indeed, everything about his past between the late 1860s (when by his account he was a journalist in London) and his 1875 arrival in Sydney remains mysterious—even the exact date, place and means of his arrival in Australia. He did not marry—at least not in Australia—and died alone, without children or close family, although he had many friends, including many in commerce, industry, government and public life. His particular enemies were missionaries, who he mocked in his writing and lectures, and sued for libel on at least one occasion. References to Freemasonry, and to hospitality received from prominent Masons, are scattered through his writing, in context suggesting he himself was a Mason. Clues to other aspects of his secretiveness are contained in two articles in this series (nos. 35 & 36, “San Francisco Revisited No. V”, and “At Honolulu”), which strongly hint he was homosexual—a condition which, if flaunted, in the late 19th century could lead to scandal and imprisonment, as Julian Thomas's younger contemporary, Oscar Wilde, was soon to demonstrate.

    Sydney James, secretary of the jockey club of Dunedin, New Zealand, identified himself publicly (in a speech to a Masonic Lodge function reported by the press) as Julian Thomas’s brother after his death, stating in part that “it was thought best at the time not to disclose his identity, but there was no reason why he should not be known by his real name, Stanley James.” His wide circle of friends and the public affection he achieved through his writing and lectures were demonstrated by his well-attended funeral, admiring obituaries, a grave monument erected by public subscription in Melbourne General Cemetery, and newspaper memorial notices.

    Monash University Press published in September 2016 an “expanded edition” of “The Vagabond Papers” edited by Michael Cannon, which takes in new findings of an American researcher, Robert G. (Bob) Flippen. Delving into contemporary Virginia newspapers and court records, Flippen has placed John Stanley James aka Julian Thomas “The Vagabond” in Farmville, Virginia (a town with a population about 2,000 in 1875, about halfway between Richmond and Lynchburg) from early 1875 until he went to Australia later that year, having failed in a banking venture and his marriage to a wealthy Virginia widow, Carolyn or Caroline Lewis. An article about Bob Flippen’s research was published in The Farmville Herald local newspaper on 31 March 2016. This says, in part, “James came to Farmville in early March of 1875 accompanied by Gen. James R. Slayton, editor of a New York paper, who had been invited to visit Farmville by Mercury editor Joseph Andrew Horner St. Andrew.” From this it appears that the stories about being a Virginian that “The Vagabond” repeated throughout his career in Australia derived from less than a year in one small town of that US State.

  2. "The Vagabond's" travel in Canada 1886
    List
    Public

    Articles by Julian Thomas "The Vagabond" for The Argus about his travel in Canada during 1886. These are not as ground-breaking as his 38 articles on his round-Pacific "Orient to Occident" trip of 1881, but they still offer remarkable insight on the places and times. Canadians particularly may be surprised by glimpses of some locally famous people of politics, commerce and literature, and of disappeared establishments like the Windsor Hotel of Montreal, the St Louis Hotel of Quebec, and the Queen's Hotel in Winnipeg.

  3. John Henry Brooke in Tokugawa Japan
    List
    Public

    The dates and circumstances reveal the pseudonymous author of these articles, using the pen-name "An Australian Colonist", as John Henry Brooke 1826-1902.

    Brooke, an English-born journalist who became a prominent colonial Victorian politician and a leading player in bitter political battles of the 1860s over land tenure, moved to Yokohama, Japan, in 1867 after suffering reverses in his political fortunes. His biggest problem was that he had made too many powerful enemies in the turbulent colonial political scene. On 26 February 1867 Brooke left Melbourne for eastern ports in the P&O mail steamer, Bombay, saying he intended "to take stock of the Japanese" and hinting that he might return in a few months. He stayed in Japan, where he became proprietor and editor of an English-language local newspaper, the Japan Daily Herald, and resided for the rest of his life. He died at Yokohama on 8 January 1902 and was buried in the foreigners' cemetery there.

    These articles, which Brooke dispatched for publication in The Argus and its associated weekly publication, The Australasian, in 1867, under the pen-name "An Australian Colonist", describe Japan in the pivotal last year of the Tokugawa shogunate, on the brink of the Meiji era which introduced sweeping modernisation, reform, industrialisation, global engagement—and militarist ambitions for imperial expansion.
