The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BLACKALL, WEDNESDAY, MAY 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 19 May 1880
§he "tUcfifqit (prampiou. Vita tine literu mors at. BLACKALL, WEDNESDAY, HAY 19. TUB Liberal section of tbe Southern Press hare boon successful in raising a commotion in Brisbane with reference to the immediate extension of the main lines of railway. No sooner had the Government called for tenders for a por tion of the work, than it suddenly occurred to the Opposition that here was a good opportunity to chargc the Minis try with precipitate expenditure of the public money on unproductive works. Tlio Southern people have taken up the my, and now clamour for the stoppage of all work upon the trunk lines until the branch railways in the Boutli are com pleted. Thoy seem to have forgotten all at once that Parliament has voted the money for extending tbe main lines, and that on tbe strength of this vote the two million loan haB been raised. When the question was under consideration in the House the members on both sides gave in their assent to the measure, on tho distinct understanding th...

The Central Railway Extension. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 19 May 1880
The Central Railway Extension. [COKTBIBUTED.I THERE is a question of vital import ance to tbc inhabitants of Aramac and Blackall, that will, no doubt, be very much discussed in a short time, slid it is therefore not too soon, I think, to make some remarks thereon at present. The question is the direction that the Central Railway will take when it is extended into the Mitchell district, and the manner in which it will cffcct the vested interests in the above-named towns. A trial survey of the proposed exten sion has already been effected. It enters this district at a point about cast of the Burgoyne run, comes that way, then passes ' through Lochnagar run, leaving the Alice River to the south, and through part of Barcaldinc run to a point on the main road from Blackall to Arnmac, about nine miloB south of Saltern Creek Station. It is supposed that the proposed site of the terminus is where the trial survey croases Lagoon Creek, aB there is good water and grass in this locality, which...

BRISBANE AFFAIRS. FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. May 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 19 May 1880
BRISBANE AFFAIRS. rnou oca srEciAL cobbesposdekt. May 7. I have heard to-day a piece of news which I hope may true. A short time ago a private meeting was held to ascertain whether a com pany for the exportation of frozen meat could ] bo formed. A capital of £50,000 was spoken of, and Bome doubts were expressed as to the feasibility of raising the money. I hear now I that the company is practically formed. They will slaughter in Toowoomba, and, I presume send down the froten meat by rail to be shipped in Brisbane. If M'llwraitb's project for a Jinpjof steamers is adopted, they Willi of course, ship by them. But they will not wait for them. The Melbourne Steamship Company, Howard Smith & Son, are prepared to put up freezing chambers on their boats, and the meat can be taken on to Sydney. Although this has not been offici cially stated up to the present time, I think my information is correct It will be. I reckon, a beginning, and it will surely be followed by other enterprise...

Oar Boys Again. Tbebe have been what arc familiarly termed motions within tie clastic precincts of 6t. Shamrock's College. Perhaps you have wit nessed Uie advent of a strange " rooster " in a foul-yard. You have seen the unfortunate intruder peeked at, and spurred, and driven away by the infuriated birds who consider tbey hbve n prior and unalienable right to every scrap of food thrown into the yard. This has been the case in our echool. A new boy arrives, and jealousy has animated a few in the &arac form as himself, to drive him out of the school. They tell the monitors that lie is not wanted, that he will upset the monopoly enjoyed by two orthree others, and the monitors without consideration tell the new boy he must not remain in the school. All the other boys, including the best be haved, the most respected, and the most intelligent in the schools, protest against thiB, and rather than see the poor boy ruined by an act of injustice, they sign a petition stating that they...
