THE ABORIGINAL QUESTION IN QUEENSLAND. HOW IT IS BEING DEALT WITH. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

THE ABORIGINAL QUESTION IN QUEENSLAND. HOW IT IS BEING DEALT WITH. J | BY WM. LEES, Author of " Picturesque Queensland," Etc. Etc. [CONTINUED. PEARLY in November last year I was able, thanks to the good courtesy of Captain Boult, the Harbour Master at Maryborough, to journey as far as Bogimbah by the s.s. " Llewellyn," Captain Evans. The latter was exceedingly kind and communicative, and Fraser Island Mission Station. what with the stories of the early days on the Mary River and the Sandy Straits, and the further back stories of the Black Sea during the war in the Crimea, the time passed rapidly. Mr. Ander son was journeying down, and gave me much informa tion of the work he was engaged in. We reached Sandy Straits shortly after lunch, and steaming north eastward, dropped anchor off the Mission Station early in the afternoon. The ship's boat took us to the long spit of sand, from where a number of waiting aboriginals came through the surf to carry us ashore. A splendid specimen of a...

RICH COPPER FIND NEAR CHILLAGOE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

RICH COPPER FIND NEAR CHIL LAGOE. The " O.K." Copper Mine (discovered some tame ago by Mr. John Munro, manager of ihe Tartan a Mine) is situated about 25 miles north from Tartana Hill and 40 miles from Mungana terminus. Messrs. Munro, Newell, Ashcroft (general manager, Mount Garnet), G. E. Willcocks, Abdul Wadi, and Eraser (Bourke Carrying Company) recently visited the " O.K." These gentlemen were so fatis fed with the property that a syndicate formed on the spot, comprising fifteen shares of £250 each, three of which are retained by the vendors (Messrs. Munro and Willcocks). The outcrop is very rich, and from the indi cations it is said there will be no difficulty in obtaining a large amount of 20 per cent, ore on the surface. There will be a dozen men at work'on the mine within a very short time, and the camels of the Bourke Carrying Com pany will probably have the contract for de livery of the ore at the Mungana terminus. The warden at Herberton reports having visited the find, a...

THE TIMBER INDUSTRY. SALE OF CEDAR LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

THE TIMBER INDUSTRY. SALE OF CEDAR LANDS. A representative meeting of those inter ested in the timber industry in the Athertonr Herberton and Irvinebank districts, was held in Cairns prior to the proposed sale by the Government of the Barron Valley cedar lands. After considerable discussion, the following re solutions were unanimously carried: - 1. " That a strong protest be made agains.t the sale of the Barron Valley cedar lands on 31st JMay. instant, as tiie time is inopportune,, and the price of cedar low; and the blocks being offered so as to suit large capitalists 'only and prohibiting competition. The meeting considered that smaller blocks should be offered, and when railway facilities were afforded, better prices could be realised, and the timber interests of the district and State will be materially benefited." 2. " That areas be cut into smaller portions, and three months' notice of sale given to allow inspection and competition from smaller buyers." Copies of the resolutio...

INCREASES IN RAILWAY FARES AND RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

INCREASES IN RAILWAY FARES AND RATES. With a view to securing additional revenue to the Railway Department, an important in crease in goods rates and passenger fares is to* come into force on ist July next. In general terms the alterations mean a 10 per cent, aver age increase in goods rates, and a 12 J per cent average increase in passenger fares-that is, some figures are more, some less, than those amounts. In the case of passenger fares the alteration will scarcely affect the single fares, but will increase the return fares. In other words the reduction for a return ticket will be very much smaller than heretofore. Week end tickets will also be affected, as instead of being, say, single fare for the double jour ney, they will be a fare and one-third. The expected increase in revenue from the altera tions, it is important to observe, represents a sum of ^£136,000 per annum. In connection with the new classification of goods rates and passenger fares, a new rule will be adopted in ...

FROM EINASLEIGH TO GEORGETOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 July 1902

FROM EINASLEIGH TO GEORGE . TOWN. Mr. Hugh Fraser returned to Cairns re cently (says the Cairns "Argus''), having car ried out the commission with which the Pre mier entrusted him, namely to report on the country between Einasleigh and Georgetown with a view to the construction at some future date of a railway between those places should the Einasleigh Company make a line from Al maden on the Chillagoe line to the Einas leigh. Mr. Fraser inspected two routes to Georgetown-one from the route to the Einas leigh already surveyed, the other from Mun gana. The former is the easier one, though the latter passes over undulating country and posses no great engineering difficulties. The route which would junction with the Einas leigh line (supposing it, of course, to be con structed) would be 130 miles from Almadenr whilst the distance by the other route-via. Mungana-would be 140 miles from Almaden. The former would thus be 10 miles nearer to Cairns than the latter. Mr. Fraser went over two ...

A handful of borax in nine or ten gallons of water will be found invaluable, either as a substitute for soap or in conjunction with it, and is vastly superior to soda, as it does not fade colored cloths. It is used for washing laces, and imparts additional gloss to collars, cuffs, or any other starched fabric. As an insecticide, it is invaluable. Roaches will not haunt a place where it is scattered, while it is harmless to domestic pets. A small proportion (one in one hundred), will retard the souring of milk for twenty-four hours, and this amount is not injurious to health. Mixed with glycerine or honey, it i...
