Barcaldine Central Racing Club. ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 August 1892

Sarcal&ine Central Racing Club. ANNUAL MEETING. Thb annual meeting of tlie Barcaldine Cen tral Railway Club commenced on Wednesday last. Besides the visitors from adjacent stations and farms, the excursion train from Rockhaiupton on Monday brought up a large contingent of sporting men and others, and ( on Tuesday the morning train from Long reach xras filled with passengers. Tho number who passed through the gates on Wednesday was in excess of those who paid for admittance on Wednesday last year; but thero was a great scarcity of vehicles, and some hundreds of persons were obliged to walk out and in. Tlio distanco no doubt is a ffreat drawback to the attendance, and if the Club wish to make the annual race meeting ttuccessful from a gate money point of view, they will have to consider the advisableness of exchanging their paddock for a racecourse nearer the town. The weather was all that could be desired-the recent rains had been just sufficient to slightly soften the bloeks...

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY AUGUST 16, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 August 1892

Vita sine Uteris mors est. BARCALDINE. TUESDAHuiusrijm THE result of the public meeting held last week in Longreach, ostensibly for the purpose of protesting against the statements made by the member for the Mitchell in the debate upon the Constitution Bill, was exactly what might have been anticipated. It has become the fashion lately in all the western towns for a certain section of the community to take possession of public meetings, and upset the pur pose for which they have been con vened. This section of society never takes the initiative in matters of public interest. It does not pay the rent of the room used for the meeting; it does not assist in any way to defray the cost of advertising or bell ringing, or whatever small charges are made in connection with proceedings of this description; but it packB the room with a crowd of followers who know nothing except what certain persons choose to tell them, and are ready at a moment's notice to cheer or groan or bold up both hands...
