Works Committee's Report on Darwin Jetty. The report of the Public Works Committee states that although Darwin is provided with a magnificent waterway, this is discounted by a rise and fall of tide of 26 feet.

BURGLARY IN WOOD STREET [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 4 October 1927
BURGLARY IN WOOD STREET While Mrs Spain, Senior, was at- tending to her duties at the Stadium on Saturday night; her home in Wood Street was forcibly entered and a sum of money and a war medal stolen. Mrs Spain made the discov- ery that both the window and door had been broken to gain an entry. The money and medal were in a box and the thief had no difficulty in securing them. The crime is a par- ticularly mean one in as much as the thief was obviously aware that he was robbing from a lonely woman who was absent at work and the war medal the only remembrance left to her of a lost sen. The police are hoping to find the individual as the incident is a challenge to their right- ful claim that Darwin is a town singularly free from serious.crime. "A womnn'n life, a woman's smile, n s:ren nil in all,. A creature who is srronsr enough for the strongest man to fall."

ARRIVAL OF LIGHTHOUSE SHIP KYOGLE [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 4 October 1927
ARRIVAL OF LIGHTHOUSE SHIP KYOGLE The Lighthouse Department's ship Kyogle came into port on Sunday afternoon; its genial master; Capt. Coalstad on the bridge. On Sep- tember 24th she left Darwin to re- condition the buoys at the Vernons and left again yesterday afternooü to proceed with this work. It is an- ticipated that completion will en- able her to return to Darwin at the end of the week. It is probable that the Kyogle will leave again about the 12th inst. for Fremantle and on the way down will attend to the buoys on the West Australia coast. Mr Hunter, light- house engineer for the North West coast is on board. Next April a stationary light will probably be placed at Cape Hotham and also one on the reef at East Ver- nons by means of which two or three buoys can be lifted and the trouble occasioned by buoys subject to the rise and fall of tides done away with. The lighthouse Depart- ment's programme also includes a light at Cape Forcroy on the south westerly point of Bathurst I...

GOVERNMENT RESIDENT ADMINISTERS JUSTICE [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 4 October 1927
GOVERNMENT RESIDENT AD MINISTERS JUSTICE A number of witnesses for the defence in the recent case of the King v McKinnon waited on the Government.Resident on Friday last for the purpose, of securing trans- portation to their homes. They were courteously received and their-case, listened to with attention and sym- pathy. Col. Weddell then expressed the view that whatever might be the legal aspect of the matter the hard- ship imposed upon these innocent victims of the law was unfair and unnecessary. He thereupon made provision for them. As one of the witnesses put it; "we only expected bare transport; it was something more than that. He gave us justice instead of law."

DEATH OF MR. SCHUNKE [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 4 October 1927
DEATH OF IHR SCHUNKE The passing away at Pine Creek on Thursday afternoon of H. E. Schunke makes another gap in the rapidly diminishing band of early day Territory pioneers. The news of the loss of this genial old resi- dent will be received with general regret. The late Mr Schunke arriv- ed from South Australia, his native Stat«, in the far back days-. some where in the 70s or 80s. At that time mining was in full swing at Pine Creek and the adjacent fields and hopes ran high. In that inland town, after some vicissitudes, the de- ceased made his permanent home, and there for many years he played a leading and energetic part as black- smith and wheelwright and general storekeeper &c. He possessed an intimate knowledge of the many mining ventures in Pine Creek and district and up to the last he was optimistic as to the great future awaiting that field when capital improved up-to-date methods, and sane management are given a fair spin in combination in the develop- ment of its ...
