CHURCH MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 January 1892

CHURCH MATTERS. THE Annual Assembly of tlie nortliem ais* trict ol the Primitive Methodist Church will commence its sessions in tlie Fitzroy-gtreef Church, Rockhampton, on February 6th, pros. Delegates will be present from every station in the Central and Northern districts of the colony, and if all attend over forty niimstera and laymen will take part in the proceedings. Tlie principal business to be transacted em braces the consideration of reports from sta tions and committees, the appointment of ministers, and tlie discussion of legislative proposals. The rojtorts contain very little that is of public interest, and that little is made known tlirough the press in the form of a statement of the financial and numerical state of tlie district. The apjiointments of ministers usually occupy tliree days, and are eagerly .watched by the members and officials oC local churches. It should be understood that minis terial engagements in tlie Church are mmie for one year only, but may be ren...

THE ILFRACOMBE-ISISFORD MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 January 1892

THE ILl'RACOMBE-ISISFORD MAIL. EVERYWHERE there are great complaints as to the Ilfracombe coach time (says our corres pondent at Isisford). Fortunately there is a good driver on the coach who pets in here in good time, but four hours in which to receive and reply to our principal mail 5B not enough. Why cannot the coach stay here for a day or two, and catch the following train. Perhaps the powers that be could answer satisfactorily, but certainly no one here can make it out.' Another matter I have heard spoken of, that is the parcels post There are thousands of people who do not live on the coast or on a rail Way line. Those thousands contribute their share to the revenue, but are debarred the use of the parcels post, and should this branch of the postal servico show a deficit will bave to pay their share of said deficit even when they derive no benefit from it. This. is hardly fair, and it JB to be hoped things «U1 be altered

Fatherly Beveage. A. Wabbagcl telegtfciu to the Melbourne Daily Telegraph dated Friday last says: On Tuesday a dastardly and successful at tempt was made at Coalville to barn the dwelling house of a newly married couple named Cleary. It seems that a man named Matthews, tbe father of Mrs. Cleary, was opposed to her marriage, and threatened her several times if she married Cleary. Mat thewB bade his daughter farewell on Saturday, bat his actions were such as to arouse sus picion , and on Taesday night, shortly after 10 o'clock, Cleary and his wife were alarmed by hearing a crackling noise outside, and on Cleary going out he found bis house on fire. A heap of rubbish was stacked against it, and the fire had got a firm hold of the building. On hurrying to the tank to get a bucket of water to extinguish the fire, Cleary found that the tap had been interfered with $nd would not act.

TRAFFIC ON THE LONGREACH ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 January 1892

TRAFFIC ON THE LONGREACH ROAD. TOM NOLAN'S coach arrived on Tuesday night at Longreacli, as full as it could hold, three passengers having to ride on top. It returned to Ilfracombe the same night, and again arrived at Longreacli the following day at noon with a full complement of passengers. The railway is now completed to the end of the section, and Longreacli residents are anxiously awaiting its opening, as business people, are greatly incon venienced owing to the time it talres to get their goods from Ilfracombe by team. We hear that in some instances goods are on the road sixteen days, and sometimes longer, which is monstrous considering the short distance between the two towns.

ROW AT TORRENS CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 January 1892

ROW AT TORRENS CREEK. Oun Muttaburra correspondent wrote on Saturday :-The report has just come in that there lias been a disturbance at Torrcns Creek. Tlie story, as far as I can hear, is that the carriers have been paid for many years a longer carriage than tliey wen; entitled to. The road has been lately surveyed, and found that they were some miles out. The carriers refused to carry except on the old terms ; but or course the squatters were not going to be imposed upon, and I believe it was all settled under police protection.
