Local Court for Peters burg. INDIGNATION MEETING. A public meeting was held in the Petersburg Institute Hall on Friday August 26th, to consider the matter of a local court. There was a large number present, and the Mayor, (Mr. W. Threadgold) took the chair. The Chairman said that the meeting had been called in consequence of a report which had appeared in the Advertiser the day before and in which the writer had falsely represented them in every way. The requisition that had been presented to him asking him to call a public meeting was signed by several prominent townsmen, and he would request those present to express their views on the subjeet. Mr. Hill moved, that a memorial be drawn up and sent to Mr. Ward em bodying such resolutions as this meeting sees fit to pass.

Petersburg Times, ORROROO CHRONICLE, AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, SEPT. 2nd, 1887. A Local Court for Petersburg. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887

Petersburg ORROROO CHRONICLE, AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, SEPT. 2nd, 1887. A Local Court for Petersburg. Previous to the Local Courts Act, 1886, it was customary for the Governor, on the advice of j his ministers, to proclaim local j courts in places where they were required; but that Act provides that no new local court may be established unless an address be first presented to the Governor by both houses of the legislature. Before deciding whether to favor or oppose the motion for such an address, the Government have to obtain the necessary information and re ports as to whether the require ments of the place seem to necessitate the establishment of a court, or, in other words, whether in the case of a court being established, sufficient law cases would transpire to justify their taking this step. Their judgment will depend on the tenor of such reports as they may receive, and upon their judgment hangs the fate of the proposed local court, for it is almost unneces sary to sta...

City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887

City Gossip* BY TALKEB. They say that the "City of churches" (yes, and banks, too) will be crowded with visi tors during the month of September. They say the members of the Ministry are not exceedingly sorry for the fate of the Bill which still leaves them in pos session ot £1,000 per annum, nor are they angry with Dr. Campbell, but of course they feel disappointed! They say the right reverend Jenkin Coles does not show much sympathy for the unem ployed, and they must not de pend upon the ct Guv'ment" for their bread, but scatter them selves throughout the country and find food for themselves and families. Far better, too, than so much centralization! They say the city drapers are closely pursued by the shoe shops in having " clearing sales." The Exhibition has brought down the prices instead of raising them, and the com petition for the little trade is very keen. They say the sh&rebrokers .* on the corner " are doing a lively business in shares, es pecially in scrip of Brok...

Catholic Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887

Catholic Aoies, THIS CHILDREN'S PICNIC. - The children's Picnic for the schools of Petersburg, Lancelot and Dawson, took place on Thursday last. About 150 children attended, and many were prevented from going on account of the inclemency of the weather generally, especially those that had to come from a distance. The Petersburg contingent was taken out in waggans and other vehicles deeked. with evergreens and flags, and the pleasure of the outing seemed to dispel any disappointment that might have occupied the minds of the youngsters by reason of the rough ness of the weather. Eight well did they enjoy themselves, and on their arrival at the ground they were well prepared for the sweets and other viands to which they did more than ample justice. The children sang in good time and tune 41 The Song of Australia." Various games and races were arranged and prizes innumerable distributed amongst them. The site chosen for the picnic was a pretty one, near the Seven Mile Yard on the Silver...

Gladstone. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887

Gladstone. The Mutual Improvement Society's quarterly entertainment was held on the 26th August. Owing to the inclemency of the weather there was only a small attendance. The first part of the pro gramme consisted of songs, recitations and instrumental music by the members, assisted by friends. A little boy about six years old son ©f Mr. Pollit keeper of the Gladstone gaol, gave a recitation with good effect. After the interval a No-Confidence debate took place between the members of the local Parlia ment. The national anthem con cluded the entertainment at a rather late hour. The whispering and laughter of a few ladies in the audience was most unbecoming. The " Slow and Sure'* Lodge of Good Templars which has existed in Gladstone for the past six years, has recently been dissolved. We have a Band of Hope but no meetings have been held for a long time. The only temperance society in active work with us is the local branch of the Reehabite Order, which, however, is not numerically st...

Cavenagh West. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887

Caveiia^i West. The settlement of Cavenagh. "West Iras leased in 1880, and since then it is the object of the writer to show how it has progressed. Tie majority of the settlers have now well established themselves on their farms with improve ments in most cases including substan tially built stone residences, with well appointed outbuildings, and where in a few instance they have built their houses of iron instead of stone they are being rapidly superseded by the more sub stantial material-an excellent building stone being easily available in the lo cality together with lime and sand. Fencing has been making -wondrous strides and the large tract of country occupied iu the cultivation, of .wheat, having undergone all the preliminary stages, must convince the most scrupu lous observer that the West Caven agliites are nothing If not industrious. Socially they are a quiet amiable com munity, embracing all sects of religion, but with that good taste that prevents a difference of opinion ...
