Abuse of Reserves. AN OFFENDER TO BE SUED FOR DAMAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923

Abuse of Reserves. -- . u . --- AN OFFENDER TO BE SUED FOR DAMAGES. At Monday's Longreach Council meet- ing the Camoola Reserve Hanger reported that 9000 sheep had been on the reserve for five days, despite the fact that their permission was only for two days. Cr. Moffat : Apparently the sheep would not have been there had there not been plenty of grass. The reason given by the drover was that they wished to divide the flock, but that' to my mind is a very lame excuse. It is not a fair thing that a man should stay there with that number of sheep and eat the reserve out, and what was not eaten out was trampled down. I venture to say that had this not have been allowed to occur there would have been good grass there now. I think it would be in the in- terest of every one if we set the law to work. Our ranger was defied, and we should see that in such cases, if he rings up, that assistance is sent. No doubt al- most any one would be prepared to pay agistment-it would be cheap grass. Ir...

Rifle Shooting. LONGREACH DEFEAT ROCKHAMPTON RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923

Rifle Shooting. LONGREACH DEFEAT ROCKHAMPTOX RAILWAY. - I The members of the Longreach Rifle Club deserve every praise for the really excellent shooting put up by them on Sun- day afternoon last in the simultaneous contest against the Rockhampton Railway Rifle Club, the crack team of Central Queensland, whom they defeated by 26 points. Longreach scored 539, being only one point short of 90 per man, whilst Rockhampton Railway put up 513, being an average of 851 per man. The conditions locally were the best experienced for some considerable time, there being practically no wind to contend with, but the light and mirage on the 600 yards range was some- what annoying, and thus pulled down the anticipated averages somewhat. We might mention that our boys have been working hard for some time at practice and inter- esting themselves in shooting generally in order to reach the top of the ladder. We congratulate them on the success they have attained. We also understand that their captain (G...

THE LONGREACH PUBLIC HOSPITAL. (To the Editor Longreach "Leader"). [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923

THE LONGREACH PUBLIC HOSPITAL. (To the Editor Longreach "Leader"). uear Sir,-I notice from the report of .the Committee in your columns that my letter of the 22nd March through the medium of the "Leader" has been dis- cussed. X With this my object has been achieved -and it is unlikely that similar treatment as meted out to me and my sisters will have a recurrence from the present staff. At all events'let us" hope so, therefore noth- . ing but good will emanate from my letter bringing such a state of things before the notice of the Public. i I do not intend to reply to the verbal » report of the Committee as given by the Chairman beyond stating that in no partic- ular does the report deal with the charges made by me, but on the contrary this but deals with attention paid my Mother dur ^ i ing her illness which never was raised by me. . I referred to inattention and treatment received by myself and sisters during our last visit to the Hospital on the death, of my mother. I am not awar...

Ilfracombe Items. (From our Own Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 13 April 1923

Ilfracombe Items. - : o : - (From our Own Correspondent). Tennis.-The tennis season has begun here in earnest. There were fully sixty people on the ground last Sunday, mostly spec- tators, and a good afternoon of sport was witnessed. The tireless secretary, aided by enthusiastic brother officers, arranged a tournament, and it promises -to be keenly contested. Elimination has begun, and bud- ding Anderson's and Tilden's are daily to be seen carrying racquets, whilst every ef- fort is being made to emulate Suzanne Langlen. The top-dressing recently carried out has cost about £58, and the secretary reports that most of this sum has been col- lected. It was not a small job, but it was very necessary, and credit is due to Mr. Holland for his secretarial energy and hard work from the start. The top-dressing was entrusted to Mr. H. Baunach, and this has been well done. A 300-gallon tank has been procured, and Mr. T. McMaster, of Kelso, donated a semi-rotary pump. This plant will be used "f...
