MICHAEL DAVITT ON MT. MORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

MICHAEL DAVITT ON MT. MORGAN. " Miners' wages are lower here than on any other goldfield in Australia. Men work in shifts of eight hours for seven and sixpence a day. There being only one employer, the company owning the Mount, the wages given are the measure of its will and not that of competition with other employers. I noticed an air of subserviency obout the employees here that I had not observed on any other goldfield or anywhere else in the colonies. This was doubtless due to a similar cause to that explaining the low rate of wages-the single source of employment. The company has its grip on place and people, and I came away with the strong conviction that the management of the concern neither deserved the unrivalled prosperity which it possessed, nor the labours of those whom it treated as if its produce were granite blocks instead of tons of gold." What do the Mt. Morgan workmen think of this ?

WHAT BECOMES OF IT? [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

WHAT BECOMES OF IT? Few people who have witnessed frozen meat being placed on board the steamers at Eagle Farm or any of the northern ports would probably ever dream of inquiring what be comes of the bagging in which the frozen car cases are enveloped after the meat is re moved from them at the port of arrival; and yet the cotton envelopes arriving with frozen and chilled meat in England from Australia and South America realize some ,£50,000 an nually in England. These cotton ft baggins,"" when the meat is removed, are thoroughly washed and pressed, and sent to the East to be made into the baggy trousers which are " A TYPICAL TROTTING STALLION. (Lord Derby.) the universal wear of Turkish, Syrian, Per sian, and Egyptian women. The number of those bags that arrive annually with frozen meat in England is about 4,000.000. and they realize about 3d. each.

NEW GUINEA MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

NEW GUINEA MINING. The Yodda goldfield is considered the richest alluvial field in New Guinea. There . are about 250 miners constantly employed on it, and they all do well. It is a difficult field to get to, and living costs at least jQ6 per week for very rough fare, so only men possessing a fair amount of capital can get on to it. Visitors have to go up to the .Kumuse River for about 60 miles in a naphtha launch, and then walk 70 miles through a rough bush track, which runs through country inhabited by very wild natives, who cause a lot of trouble. Several promising auriferous reefs have been dis covered on the G-ibara goldfield, a few miles inland from Milne Bay, and about 30 miles from Samarai, but no attempts have been made to develop them. About 35 miners are working alluvial gold at Gibara. Woodlark Island Proprietary Mine. Great things are expected of this mine, but its affairs do not seem to have been managed very skilfully. Mr. R. Boyd has lately as sumed the management and...

THE POINTS OF A GOOD RAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

THE POINTS OF A GOOD RAM. The ram should be impressive, resolute, arid of noble bearing. He should be distinctly the head of the flock in every sense of the word. To meet these requirements, he must have good constitutional and vital powers. With out these, no animal is fit to head a herd or flock. In selecting a sire, look first at the head; if deficient there, look no further, but reject at once. Insist upon a head that faces you boldly with a wide face, a clear, prominent eye, and a robust character throughout. The head should be joined to a well-filled, sound, muscular neck, wide at the poll and back of the ears, and gradually enlarging in all lines to a strong, full junction at the shoulders, as seen from the top, sides, or bottom. This should be accompanied by a wide chest, a prominent, well-filled brisket, and a full breast girth giving straight, even lines from the shoulders back. A depression either in front or behind the shoulder, whether at the top* side, or bottom line, ...

A DROUGHT-STRICKEN FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

A DROUGHT-STRICKEN FIELD. ; A Croydonite, who is at present in tfce Clermont district, writing under date May 9, sends the Croydon " Record " the follow ing deplorable account regarding that field: " Talk about poverty and destitution, why Croydon is a veritable Paradise when com pared with Clermont. I hear 011 good authority that fully ^130 per month is dis tributed by the Government to old and destitute miners on this field, and that women and children are working the creeks for a few pennyweights of gold they can pick up to buy food. Many of them have not tasted meat for weeks at a time, and are quite satisfied to work for food and any old clothes they can get. Feed is up; corn 8s. a bushel, chaff 10s. per cwt.; two months ago they were 3s. iod. and 6s. respectively. Liv ing, of course, is proportionately dear. Baker and butcher have knocked off deliver ing, and it is quite a sight to see all the chaps, society chaps especially, on Saturday night buying bread and beef and carryin...

AGRICULTURE Produce Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

Produce Markets. But little farm produce of good quality is coming into the market, and high prices rule throughout. The strawberry crop is the smallest on record, while loquats, cumquats, etc., are in very small display. Shipments of maize from South America via Sydney are eagerly looked forward to, which will relieve the market somewhat, but it can welf be seen that high prices will rule for a consider able time to come. The following are the latest current prices : Maize.-5s. 7d. per bushel. Wheat.-4s. 4d. to 4s. gel. per bushel. Chaff".-Oaten to 6s. iod, Wheaten Straw ^prime) to 4s. 6d.

PASTORAL Stock and Station [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

Stock and Station It is to be regretted that our estimate of the high rates to which stock would reach these winter months have come true, and now beef and mutton are at very high prices, and these wTe consider have not even yet reached top prices. The retail price for beef and mutton in Brisbane at present is for ordinary joints and cuts, 8d. per lb., probably the highest price housewives have ever paid. Around Brisbane, on the Logan, the Upper Brisbane, Lockyer, Mary, and many other rivers, the stench of dead cattle pollutes the air in what ever way one rides, and where cattle to replace these dead ones are to be obtained in the future is scarce known. There is ample grass and water at the far heads of the Brisbane, Stanley, Mary, and the Logan, and in isolated parts like the Pioneer, the Burdekin, Delta, and the Herbert, good country exists, but these are but fly marks to the vest range of drought-stricken country, both on the coast and in the interior.

BUILDING REPRODUCTIVE WORKS BY DEBENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

BUILDING REPRODUCTIVE WORKS BY DEBENTURES. THE Cairns " Argus/' referring to the completion of the 32 miles of railway line from Lappa Junction to Mt. Gar net (Cairns), by the contractors, Messrs. Will cocks and Overend, draws attention to the fact of the line being paid for by ^90,000 worth of debentures on the Mt. Garnet Free hold Gold and Silver Mining Company, Ltd., and pointing the moral by the fact of ^£530,000 of Treasury Bills, at 4% being over subscribed for, asks is there any reason why the Government of this State should not pro ceed on similar lines to the Mt. Garnet Com pany in the construction of their-the State owned-railways, or, for the matter of that, with other reproductive works? To us there seems not. Instead of the Government, when they decide to build a railway, or a number of railways, placing a big loan upon the Lon don market to meet the cost after it has been incurred, or they have been committed to it, would it not be better to issue locally a num ber of ...

HORSES AND REMOUNTS. A Letter of Importance to Queenslanders. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

HORSES AND REMOUNTS. A Letter of Importance to Queenslanders. Sir,-Although a vast amount of ink has been shed on the subject of Army Remounts, no two people appear to be in agreement on the subject, barring the one common opinion that there is "something rotten in the state" of matters! I believe that one of the greatest trials with which a horse-dealer has to put up is the entrance into, his yard of persons who do not know what they want, and who would consider any advice as an insult. Such people too often end by buying something utterly unsuited to their purpose, and having done so, they abuse the dealer for selling it to them. Now, as to cavalry remounts, we are in something like the same position, for com paratively few of our officers of high rank are judges of horses. I do not say that they may not know a good-looking one when they see him, or a good mover, and, as " Harry Hie over " wrote years ago, they may ride or drive him well enough, but a very small per centage of men...

CIVIL SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

CIVIL SERVANTS. The life of the civil servant is not this lime a very happy one, for in addition to the dread of being retrenched at any moment, he has been officially informed that if he runs up a bill» or gets into debt, and is unable to liquidate the amount before the knowledge reaches headquarters* he will be politely shown the door as not being fit to remain in the public service. This is rubbing it in with a vengeance, and the Government policy is not to do as we do, but do as we don't. Some time ago an agitation was raised by shopkeepers in Brisbane to have the garnishee system applied to public servants. It was promised that a regulation designed for the better protection of traders from unscrupulous civil servants would be prepared, and such regulation has now been issued. It provides that in the event of any officer against whom judgment has been obtained in any Court not satisfying the same promptly or within such time as the judgment creditor reports he is wiling to allo...

MINING THE CHARTERS TOWERS BOOM. THE PROSPECTS IN 1902. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

THE CHARTERS TOWERS BOOM. THE PROSPECTS IN 1902. Though such roseate hopes as to the um Tersally paying character of the Brilliant line ?of reef are not now maintained, says the N. Q. " Register," the last ten years' develop ments have proved the value of that reef in the Kelly's Queen Block. Brilliant Central,. Marshall's Queen (it is held this mine is now o;i the Brilliant reef), and Brilliant Extendsu, and it is confidently anticipated that the same -average of success will be maintained through out the Bonnie Dundee, Brilliant Deep Levels, Columbia, North Queen, and New Queen. Attention is forcibly directed to the big shoot of stone in the Western side of the Brilliant Extended, the best of which has been opened up by No. 8 East level at the greatest depth yet attained in the mine. Quite lately, too, the Brilliant lilock and Brilliant Freehold have shown an improvement in the quality of the stone which they are working, and which may easily lead to greater things.

Exhibition time is always a period when the firm make special efforts to entertain visitors to the city, and they cordially invite all such to call and inspect their magnificient and varied collection of household furnishings, which form quite a unique exhibition, the assortment of goods being so extensive. At the time of our visit we saw some of the latest designs in decorated table glassware, delicately tinted in Ruby, Amber, and other colors which represent the daintiest ideas yet conceived in this particular line ; the price of this glassware is certainly as low as the old fashioned moulded glass, and are quoted at: Sweet Dishes, 6d., gd. and is.; Fruit Dishes, is. 6d., 2s., 2s. 6d.; Ca...

THE BOOM OF 1891. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 August 1902

THE BOOM OF 1891. The " Northern Miner" has, in a recent issue, a very interesting article on the Charters Towers share market boom of 1891. It states that in that year Brilliant and St. George shares, when the shaft was a few hundred feet deep, sold as low as 6d.; they touched 54s. per 144,000th share in the 1891 boom, that fatal bunch of stone 14 feet thick, driving the public mad. In three weeks shares rose from 16s. per 72,000th to 54s. per 144,000th -from ,£57,600 to £388,800, but the decline was more sensational. A " horse" of mullock intruded, the reef cut out, and in one hour on call, 8s. was chipped off the market value, equal to jQ57,600, a shock that even Charters Towers at its maddest, fairly staggered under. Since then the Brilliant and St. George has been worth 70s. on top of many dividends, but in the meantime the most of those who bought at 54s. and less, were severely crippled, and many were ruined. In November, 1891, Brilliant and St. George United stock declined ^...
