Warwick Show. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

Warwick Show. Warwick exhibited its capabilities in agricultural and pastoral produce to the fullest extent on the 29th and 30th ult., and the great concourse of visitors received a splendid object lesson at this city of the Darling Downs* It was opened by Sir S. W. Griffith, who wa& supported by a large number of influential men interested in the distriot. The district,, being noted for its wheat-producing qualities great interest was manifested in this important product. There were 13 competitors for the champion prize, each exhibitor being required, to show 12 bushels. The quality of the grain in the two types exhibited, viz., Budd's early and Marshall's No. 3, was of a very high standard, and the judge, Mr. Benson, had & trying time in judging. Mr. G. Alexander won, after a very close oontest, from Mr. A. Tullocb, as, although the latter tipped the beam as regards weight, the former's exhibit was more evenly graded. Mr. Alexander was also successful in _ exhibits...

Toowoomba Show. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

Toowoomba Show. The fortieth show of the Drayton and Toowoomba Agricultural and Horticultural Society was held at Toowoomba on the 15th and 16th ultimo! and notwithstanding a decrease in the number of entries, especially in agricultural machinery, may be considered to have been an unqualified success. The live stock made a splendid exhibit, and fully compensated for the falling off in other sections, the lambs exhibited for export being numerous and of fine quality. The opening ceremony was performed by the Hon. J. Leahy, accompanied by the Hon. J. Murray and the Hon. G. W. Gray, and a strong contingent of M.L A.'s, and others interested in this large agricultural centre. Mr. E. Gailey, the president of the Queensland National Associa tion, was also present. The usual luncheon was held, at which apologies were offered on behalf of the Premier and Sir H. Nelson. The toast of the Ministry was proposed by Mr. F. J. Paterson (vice-president), who alluded to the immense service the Gover...

PROSPECTS of the CANDIDATES. The Ministry [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

PROSPECTS of the CANDIDATES. The Ministry Of course it is ratber risky to prophesy eo long before the event, but although there may be some change?, and probably macy rttire ments, before the actual polling day, a fairly accurate list of probable candidates may be made now and their chances estimated on the data at present available. To commence with the Premier. At the last election he was sent into Parliament simply as Townsville's representa tive, and as plain Mr. Philp he would probably be easily re-elected. As Premier his return is an absolute certainty. Apart from his personal popularity the interests of the greet firm with which he is connected are BO bound up with the prosperity of the port that the two Labour candidates, Mefsrs. Enright and Ogd?n, have a very poor show either against him or his fellow candidate, Mr. Hanran, whom as before he will probably carry in with him. The Eon. Arthur Butkdge, Attorney General, is one of the most popular men in the Ministry, and is pra...

AGRICULTURE Produce Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

Produce Markets. The effect of the long-continued drought on the coast, which has apparently 41 come in from the west," is seen in the markets each day, the quality of fruit and general produce being very low, and prices for even fair quality being exceedingly high. Even with rain at an early date we do not expect matters to alter in the above regard for at least two months. Maize.-rPrime, 2* ll^i to 83 Id per busbel; weevily, 23 5£d, 2s 9d.

Fifty Pounds for the Best Coronation Ode. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

Fifty Pounds for the Best Coronation Ode. Few Englishmen, say the publishers of Good Words, are satisfied that the present Poet Laureate can write the best poetry in the British Empire. It is in the hope of finding ~a new Laureate not yet laurelled that that magazine, therefore, is offering cash figures to the value of £75 for the three best Odes on the forthcoming Coronation written by a British subjeet and received at its office in London by April 20th next. The first priz9 is £50; but the publishers say that far more than the value of the prize the occasion itself ought to serve as an inspiration to the poets of the Empire, and it is to the authors of the Empire outside England itself that they especially address themselves. The honour, tbey say, of being adjudged the best poet in the Empire will be worth more than many prizes of fifty pounds, and it is an honour which will reflect on that colony or that part of the Empire in which the poet lives as well as dignifying the individ...

The Railway Goal Contract Trouble. ER. W. RANKIN, the Managing Director of the Queensland Collieries, Ltd., at a banquet given in his honour, prior to his departure for Europe, meted out strong criticism upon the Railway Commissioner in regard to the Railway Coal Contracts. The following appeared in the columns ot the Mary borough Chronicle on the 14th ultimo: (To the Editor.) Sir,-Your paper having published at some length a most defamatory report of a speech delivered by Mr. W. Rankin, I enclose a written letter with a request that you will give full publicity of same to the readers of your paper. At the same time I wish you to distinctly understand that this must not be taken as an intimation that on your so doing no legal pro ceedings will be taken to clear the good name of those so grossly slandered. -Yours truly, WILLIAM R.

The Kisses of Arcady. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

The Kisses of Arcady. BY BICHABD WILSTED. RCADIU8 DOLGONOGHI stood six feet three in bis Cossack riding boots. He bad generally to stoop in order to kiss anything, from the gilt cross held out by a pope at a service of the Orthodox Church to the bald pate of Fetbersbee at the Liao-kow Club. Ladies laughed at Arcadius, and men snubbed him, but children, who are primitive barbarians, were naturally attracted by such a great, handsome, emotional savage, and they accepted his hirsute kisses and his paper covered caramels from Moscow with delight. As for the European women in the small Chinese outport of Liao-kow, they compared notes and agreed that no man could be taken seriously whose knowledge of three languages was confined to conjugating the regular verb " to love." The hands of them all bad been squeezed in his lion's paw and bad felt the noisy pressure of his lips. They said that it hurt, and added that his ogling was overdone. He had eyes like a big dog, and they looked unutterab...

"Queensland Country Life" (ILLUSTRATED). VOL III (New Series) BRISBANE, FEB. NO. 24. THE COMING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 February 1902

4t (Jfucmslanft ?omtrg ?pfe" (ILLUSTRATED). VOL HI {New Series) BRISBANE, FEB. NO. 24. THE COMING ELECTION. It may be the natural reaction following the many exciting events of the last two years, it may be the apatby often attendant on dis appointed hopes, it may be the apparent hopelessness of the present outlook, but the fact remains that the General Election, to be held on the 11th March next, arouses but little enthusiasm at present, and in all probability will be one of the quietest General Elections ever held in the history of the State. And yet the electors of Queensland have never yet had to face so momentous a crisis, in many respects, since Queensland first became a separate colony. An unparalleled drought, the decrease of revenue from a tariff which is now manipulated by the Commonwealth, and over which we have no control, and finally, the heavy blow dealt at our sugar industry by Mr. Barton's drastic legislation, have crippled the finances of the State, disorganised bus...
