The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BLACKALL, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3,1880. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 November 1880
Vita nine titerli mart at. BLACKALL, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3,1880. THE Kail way Companies Preliminary Bill has progressed satisfactorily so far, and it seems as if the opposing parties in the Assembly had at last determined to bury the b&tcbet for it short time to unite in a scheme for the public good. The discussion in Committee has been conducted with much moderation, and an evident desire to accept suggestions from cither side, so that it is probable a really useful and well arranged measure will be laid before the Council for its approval. The principal objection to the bill is .that advanced by several members who consider that payment at the'rate of 6000 acres for eveiy mile of railway made ought to be sufficient to induce a company to construct the line for the Government instead of for them selves. It mu6t be understood, how ever, that the mere cost of making the railway is not all the cost of the under taking. The contractors have to provide rolling and permanent stoc...

Frozen Meat Exportation. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 November 1880
Frozen Meat Exportation. THE movement seems to hang fire in New South Wales, though the following letter to the Dubbo DUpatak shows bow energetically the agents are trying to push the trade We have, with much regret, notioed the unaccountable apathy that exists among those who ehould take more interest in our surplus meat question. Several attempts have been made since the successful result of the Btrathlcven, Meetings have been held, and proposals made; but because unanimity of purpose could not be decided upon, flic question has been allowed to doze along as most momentous questions have been with regard to all developments that affect the advancement of New Soutli Wales. However, to show that we ore fully olive to the importance of this frozen meat ques tion, and in order to give it a fillip, we make the following suggestion That the graeiers, merchants, and others interested convene a meeting for the purpose of considering our proposal, which is, that the whole of the agents und...

STATE EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 November 1880
STATE EDUCATION. I TO THE EDITOR, Sm,-Flense allow mo to use a little ot your valuable space upon a subject iu which mn.ny take an interest, and of which I lm»e a little knowledge. In your issue of the 13th inst. you devoted a leading article to the educa tion system of the colony, praising it in some ways and condemning it in others. With the praise I thoroughly agree, with the con demnation I shall offer reasons for a dis agreement. I agree with you when you place the system of Queensland above that of New South Wales, not because of its absolute, but of its relative merits. The Queensland conrse of study is better adapted for us, commencing the existence of a country. New South Wales is a little older, may even be said to have traditions, is in fuller accord than we are with European tendencies, and will consequently attach a, value to mere adornment which to us seems out of place. The embroidery, drawing, and piano music to which you refer, are certainly not in our present lines...

BRISBANE AFFAIRS. FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. October 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 November 1880
BRISBANE AFFAIRS. FBOX OUB SPECIAL OORIIESPONDEKT. Octobcr 23. THE Hallway Companies PielinJinaiy Bill is nearly through the Assembly, and may be said to be past all danger as fax as that House Is concerned. I should say that a Uill to the same effect is nearly through, for as it stands the measure bears about the same resemblance to the one originally introduced as an indi vidual who lias undergone the operation of t)cing "knocked into a cocked hat" at the ? close of a heavy day in the township, does to the spruce dandified person who, in all the glory of his " store clothes " stepped into the bar for his first nip early in the forenoon. Hot that I ?wish you to understand that there has been any row over it. Quite-very much quite the contrary. The peaceful bliss of Eden wasn't a patch simply on the holy f.lm that pervaded the Assembly while the bill was in committee.

Notes on Current Events. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 3 November 1880
Notes on Current Events. A young man of the name of D. Drury attempted suicide at Aramac last week by shooting himself with a pistol. The bullet entered his brain, and he is not expected to recover. The cause assigned for the rath act was a quarrel with his employers, Messrs. Milsom and De 6atg£, of Coreena Station. Mrs. Dorecy, widow of the late Dr. Sony of IpBwicli and mother of lire. Bell, died at Government House last Tuesday. The Council adjourned out of respect to their President, The N.6.W. Cabinet having considered the evidence taken by the Royal Commission to | inquire into the charges made some time afro against Judge Meymott, have called upon him to show cause before the 29th instant why he should not be removed from the ser vice. Cooktown is fast sinking into a somnolent state; one of the banks have shut up now, and a few of the twenty-five "hot-els" and twenty stores will follow-shortly.

Sporting Notes from the Metropolis. I FftOH oca OTM COWtEBPOSDENT. Brisbane. October 13. WlTn the V.U.C. Spring and our orn meet-1 iug approaching, tilings ill the sporting world arc beginning to look up a bit, and the change for the better is veiy refreshing after the dull time which we hare had for the last few weeks. The acceptances for the Q.T.C. handicaps were published this morning, and I am sure that the handicapjiers have reason to feel proud of their work. In the Queens land Cup the only one that has cried off is EomiUa. who was handicapped at a very light weight, but unfortunately she split her hoof a few days ago in her exercise, so had to be withdrawn. Mr. Mouahan has decided on putting her to Fenmon, and she took her departure for Barolin by the Queensland last Tuesday. In the Sandgate Handicap Proctor has been scratched, which, with Bomula out of it, leaves ten acceptors. The Brisbane Handicap has but foar left in it, Orphan, Warhawk, Sunset, and Keepsake. This is not ...
