THE CONTINENTAL RAILWAY BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 29 May 1875

THE COXTDTESTA1. RAILWAY BILL. I Our readers are aware (hat the Legisla tk-e Assembly have devoted the greater ] portion of two evenings to discussing I the provisions of the Continental Bill. I The result was a second reading by not j a large majority, but there is very tittle j chance of the measure ever becoming , law. It has yet to pass through tbei ordeal of Committee of the Whole, and ! the minority are so numerically strong, J so determined, and so fortified by] argument that it seems very improbable ' that the bill can ever come to a third reading. Indeed, we are informed, that the Government have already deter mined to abandon what may be called the Gulf portion of the bin. And if, after being so mutilated, it should survive the dangers attending its passage through the popular House, it will find a certain grave in the Legislative Council ; and rightly so, for were there no other objec tion to this bill, the omission to furnish plans of the proposed railway, in accord ance...

THE BUDGET SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 29 May 1875

THE BUDGET SPEECH. Possibly at very lanje proportion of our readers will not trade through the smthorised vasroaof the Tre&surek's ^Budget speech, as contained in the Sup 'tjlement to this journal yesterday. And ' possibly also many of those -who do wad the deliverance will find some difficulty in mastering its contents. What, with Consolidated Revenue and Loan Esti mates, and Surplus Revenue and Trust accounts, it is not surprising if to die uninitiated the public accounts appear a sort of Chinese puzzle, difficult to understand, and not of veiy great advan tage to the wearied student when under stood. The speech is skilfully prepared. Beyond a few palpable mistakes, it ?cannot be said to contain any actual roisstatements. Yet without careful -examination it cannot be deemed to ?convey a faithful impression of the finan -aal condition of the colony. The reader is told that on the ist of January, last there was a. credit balance in the Treasury of £$9,466, and that on the ,3...

THE TREASURER'S FALLACIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 29 May 1875

THE TREASCEEK'S FALLACIES. The honorable member for Maranoa (Mr. M'Ilwkaith) did a public service on Tuesday week in exposing the numerous fallacies in the Treasurer's Budget speech. The circumstance sup plies proof of the old axiom that no man is indispensable, and thai what one person has done m the past another wS be found capable of doing in the feture. When Mr. $f£3£3f&KT foa& feis late wsanoai stetESBQtt, there appears to. have been a general feeing both inside and outside the House that the fiscal j aSaos of the colony were less bright. than had been represented. But the ' questions were, bow are the errors 10 be ? detected, and by whom ? The outside ' public vainly looked through the list of : Opposition members for a financier, , and a kind of despairing impression , began to prevail that if affairs were not . quite as they should be there was no help for it When, therefore, the debate on the financial statement was opened by the ex-Minister for Works, and w...

CURRENT TOPICS. OUR RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 29 May 1875

CURRENT TOPICS. OCR RAILWAYS. Oxe of the tables presented by the| Treasurer in explanation of his finan- ! cku statement is of some interest to our readers. It shows the receipts and wotting expenses ot both southern and northern railways since they were first opened. The interest in cost of con struction is not taken into consideration, cud most not be confounded with ex penses. The southern and western line has been open or partially open for ten years. Its total length is now 206 miles, but up to T875, it was only 18S miles ; i.p to 1870, 176 miles ; in 1S68, 130 railes ; in 1S67, 106 miles : in i860, 43 miles; add in 1865, 21 miles. The gross earnings were in 1865 only £5679, bot in 1874 they reached £106,822. The working expenses progressed from £34,788, in 1876 to £69,226. This proves that the receipts are augmenting much faster than the working ex penses, which is highly satisfac tory, and must operate as a power fid incentive to further extension. List year the net earnings ...

They ugoallr meet once a week when there is nothing, and once a month when there is something tobedone. They meet in a square room, with a table and a few chairs or forms.
