1 THE QUEENSLAND IiOAN. London, May 27. Tenders were opened, to-day for the Queensland loan of £2,5CK),000 bear ing three and a-half per cent interest, the^ minimnm of which was fixed at 94. The total amount tendered was only £300,000. The balance of the loan will remain open for a week at the minimum price. There were 218 tenderers for the Queensland loan, the total amount subscribed being £296,800. The result surprised even the pessemists. The Queensland National Bank re frained from tendering. Amongst the reasons for the failure of the loan, it is alleged that the City distrusts Queensland on account of her re publican tendences, her refusal to contribute to the naval defence, and her dispositions towards an isolated policy on other questions. The Exchange manifests delight at tibe failure, and predicts that it will enable the stock to be secured at 90. It is suggested that there be a temporary renewal of the present loan at 6 per cent., and thatthe £300,000 subscribed be withdra...

TURF GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
TUBS' GOSSIP. (BR HB&MXT ) Fred. Willich went through to Towns Tille with Mexican, Marquis, and the chest nut two-year-old Epigram colt, and he has taken up his quarters at the Boyal Qnk. Mexican and Marquis were too sore to fulfil their Queen's Birthday engagements here. The enlarged saddling paddock at the race course is a great improvement, and the extra space was. mueh approved of on Mon day, as where race horses have to be led about, it is a nuisance to have insufficient room, to say nothing of the danger thereof both to horse and man. There will now be nothing to complain of on this score. This, however, is only a small portion of the improvements which are in contemplation, and I was shown a sketch of the suggested additions and alterations to be made, which, if carried out, will lender the appointments of our course but little, if anything inferior to the metropolitan courses. It is proposed to place the members carriage paddock to the west of the saddling paddock, r...
