DIAMONDS IN TASMANIA DEPOSITS AT CORINNA GOLDMELD. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 14 January 1919
DIAMONDS IN TASMANIA DEPOSITS AT CORINNA GOLD- FIELD. In an article dealing with diamond &nbsp; discoveries in Tasmania, the Secretary for Mines remarks:---- "When great activity prevailed on the Corinna gold- field in the nineties, several small dia- monds were found in creeks in the Donaldson Range district, and another specimen came to light in the same district in 1906. The surprise created by the discoveries gradually died away, and even the fact that diamonds have been met with at all in Tasmania is now unfamiliar to many." In a report on the subject, the Gov- ernment Geologist, Mr. W. H. Twelve- trees, says: "The few diamonds which have been found hitherto are sure and certain indications that more remain to be discovered. They were found at a time when unusual activity prevail- ed on the alluvial fields near Corinna. These fields are now idle, but it is a warrantable supposition that dia- monds are still in the gravels waiting to be removed. They are in all probabili...

MAKING NEW STREETS "TAX UNIMPROVED VALUES." PROBLEM OF THE SPECULATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 14 January 1919
MAKING NEW STREETS &nbsp; "TAX UNIMPROVED VALUES." PROBLEM OF THE SPECULATOR. In connection with his proposal for &nbsp; making new streets, as already outlined in "The Advocate,'' Cr. H. A. Dumble- &nbsp; ton moved at yesterday's meeting of the Devonport Council :--"Seeing that the road rates received by the council are practically absorbed in mainten- ance, leaving nothing for new work on existing or unmade streets, the coun- cil resolves that if the owner of a pro- perty on an existing street will under- take to form and metal such street, a contract be made between such pro- perty-owner and the council, by which the council will undertake to find the expenditure in instalments covering so many years." He understood there were some enterprising owners who were prepared to metal the streets if their rating were refunded until the expenditure was met. Cr. J. Leary seconded for the sake of discussion, on the understanding that the repayments did not exceed 75...

Wilson completed his term to the satisfaction of all concerned. "Wayback" Liena district is evidently trying to keep up with the times, so far as mail service goes.

BUSINESS MAN ANO STUDENT. I For tho former "Dr. Mnmid's Old Timo Wine" ia a most excellent stimu lating tonic.
