THE MOUNT GAMBIER AND RIVOLI BAY RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 19 December 1876
THE MOUNT GAMBIER AND RIVOLI BAY RAILWAY. WE condense from the Border WVatch of the 16th a report of the meeting hIeld at Mount Gambier to consider the most advisable way to follow, to perfect the process of tapping Victoria, so effectively commenced in the districts of Horsham and the Wimmera through the Lacepede Bay line to Kingston. The proposal is for a new line connecting Mount Gambler on the west from Rivoli Bay, and with Caseterton on the east. 'The plan in |implo: if speedily carried out it will certainly prove very effective, and in that case the best thing for the people of Casterton and Portland would be to petition the QuEN? asking that the districts should become politi cally as well as comercially a portion of South Australia. The Melbourne Government is so much taken up in the question of how best to concen trate the trade of the colony on Meol bourne that the western border land is totally neglected, the trade carried to another colony; then what should deter the peo...

It will be remembered that the evideneo given at tilhe inquest by Mr. Dimock; medical prac titioner, residing at Miondngton, respecting the post-morion appearances of the body of the deceased woman, was of a very in definite and unsattafactory character, and that Mr. Candler therefore requested Dr. I'elld, of Melbournm, to make a second ex amination of te body.

He had, however,' evidently made but a very superficial examination of the remsainsfor Iis evidenc...
