HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE NORTHERN ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 17 June 1870
HOYLE'S PLAINS AND PORT WAKEFIELD TRAMWAY. (To the Editor of THE I^OETHEEN ARGUS) She-In your issue of the 10th met. I notice a-very sensible, letter .from "J. St j lee," in answer to Mr. Jarman. There are one or two items in Mr. Jarman's letter that Mr. Styles has forgotten, which I shall be glad to answer for him. Towards the: end of his letter, Mr. Jarman sneers at Mr. Brightas the" father of the line." Wow, Mr. Jarman, I boldly say that Mr. Bright has jevery reason to be -proud of the line, for whether the fcamway makes all oar fortunes, or whether it ruins us all, in getting the Bill passed Mr. Bright fulfilled the wishes of a large majority of his constituents, and if there is any blame connected with-it, it should fall on the shoulders of the memorialists and those who got up the monster meeting. When the peti tion was given to Mr. Bright, he was bound in honor to do his utmost to ftilfil the wishes of his. constituents, and he did it well. Again, Mr. Jarman intimates it. was...

It appears-from reli able information that no less than 1,000 sheep fell victims to the watery element, and further more it was said that if the rain continued for a Few more hour?, the men and the remainder of the sheep would undoubtedly have shared the same fate. Both men and stock were bound on an islaid with just sufficient room for them to exist. Howe ver, the water gradually sub sided^ and no further losses occurred. When the weather permits, the travelling party intend starting en route for Beltana, so as to be down in the latter end of August for shearing.

MYSTERIOUS TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 24 June 1870
MYSTERIOUS TRAGEDY. In Grafton-terrace, Old Ford road, there have lived for some time past a man .named Edward Banks and hisi wife. Banks, it seems, was a brick layer, but a man far superior to his position; In better days he had been a builder, and had realised a consider-: able sum, upon which he had retired5 from business. Being-, however, of an' energetic temperament, he seems to have soon grown dissatisfied with a life of ease and rest, and to have again j sought some active occupation. Un- j fortunately for him, he did not return to his old trade, but started a linen draper's shop in Whitecross street. In a few months he found he was losing money. He tried to retrieve his losses by speculation, and succeeded in doubling them. In due course came bankruptcy, and Edward Banks, who had so carefully climbed to the top of the ladder, found himself, now late in life, doing battle for sheer existence on its lowest round. From a prosperous builder to a journeyman bricklayer is no sligh...
