The Ballarat Goldfields. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
The Ballarat Goldflclds. WE have before us the minimi report of the Ballarat School of Mines, Industries and Science, and having perused it can Bay that itdoes infinite credit to the residents of a mining field that is generally acknowledged j to have been second to none in the world, and which even now in these latter days takes a front rank aanonjgst the gold pro ducing area£ of Australia. Itmaybestated at the outset that the School is affiliated wttsh j the Melbourne University, and consequently its students, after they have passed through 1 the curriculum laid down in the School, carry with them the Hall mark that always attaches to the alumni of such seats of learn ing. Itistobe regretted that we have not a similar institution in Queensland. To ask the Government at the present time to insti tute one would be absurd and unfair* because, to use a homely expression,times are bad, the public expenditure, increasing during several years to come, will surely be very heavy, and the G...
