The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BLACKALL, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 6 October 1880

§hf <$Irampn. Vita sine lilcri* mors est* BUci^wIoNESDAY, OCTOBER 6,1880. We do not mince matters when tie truth requires to be uttered boldly and plainly, and therefore we at once affirm that the Aramac Mail has acted a mean, cowardly, and treacherous part in turn ing its tail to the Government at a crisis when the support of the northern and central county districts was most urgently needed.

I was obliged to iiiterroit my letters for onoe, bccause I had the pleasure of being cue ot several hundred visitors who went to Boma, to sing out hooray over the opening of the line. There were great doings in that not ordinarily very festive town, and your oorrospondent leaving you to read the speeches and officialisms in the Brisbane and local papers, will ehdeavor to convey to you the humors of the affair. In the first place let me convey to you my profound detestation of -the country from Chinchilla to Roma, at least that part of it through which the line passes. 1 did not thinlc it possible for country not actually desert to be BO thoroughly bad, and Natureis doing away with the occasional interruption to its uniformly villainous character by filling up <the few patches of grassy plain with young1 brignlow scrub.
