The . | PASTORAL, MINING AND PBABMNG NBWE. SATCJEDAY, FEBEUAKT 24, 1906. THF LOCAL JETTY AND TRAM LDSE. ALTHOUGH the attendance at the meet ing convened to discuss matters relat ing to the jetty and tramline was not large-owing in great measure to the distribution of the Southern mail at the stated hour for the meeting unanimity characterised the proceed ings, and not a single dissenting voice was raised when the resolutions were submitted. It would indeed have been strange if exception were taken to the motions by any person un affected by present or prospective interest in maintaining the present system, a system which certainly does not make for the town's well being and advancement. We have five regular steamers plying np and down the coast, and their time tables show that Carnarvon has visits from one or other of them aggregating in the course of the year over 70. Very frequently a large number of the passengers who are en route to Nor thern or Southern ports would take a run u...

Watson complained of a pain at the base of his neck, bat his condition remained normal nntil Fri day, when he became feverish and started to spit blood. After a consult ation was held it was agreed that the blood came from the lungs, but the canse of the hemorrhage was a mystery. The patient grew rapidly worse and died on Satnrday. Dr. Hope, who conducted the post mortem, fonnd the bleeding to have been caused by a small piece of mutton bone an inch long and as sharp as a needle at each end. The bone had apparently been swallowed by the prisoner while hav ing dinner some time ago. The bone lodged in the esophagous or gullet and must have been there a long time, for the part affected was much ulcerated. Eventually the sharp-poi...

A rumour which gamed currency in Perth on Saturday was to the effect that Mr. James had decided to relin quish the Agent-Generalship and re turn to the State towards the end of the year.
