THE NORMANTON-CLONCURRY RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
THE NORMANTON-CLONCURRY RAILWAY. Recent London advices show that it is in tended to launch a big company on the Lon don Market for the purpose of raising the ; necessary amount to cover the cost of construc tion of the Normanton-Gloncurry Railway. This news is somewhat of a surprise, as it has been emphatically and repeatedly stated that those who obtained the railway concession at .the last sittings of Parliament were prepared -to put up all the money to construct the line and to work the Cloncurry mines. The delay jso far in the formation of the company is caused by the absence in Egypt of Mr. Archi bald Coates, of Paisley, Scotland, one of the principal members of the original syndicate. He was expected in London last week in May. On his return a meeting was to be called to hasten matters. That the directors anticipate no trouble when they decide to put the concession on the market is generally ac cepted, as they have already, through their ac credited agents, been making inquiri...
BRITISH COMMERCIAL CHIVALRY. From "Queensland Commerce, Mining and Finance." [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
BRITISH COMMERCIAL CHIVALRY. From 'Queensland Commerce, Mining and Finance.'' As peace hath her victories, so has she her chivalry. Fair play is the boast of our na tion, and in spite of all slanders is one of o&lt;ur characteristics. We have shown fair play in war by employing only white men, by trusting a faithless enemy, by repeated acts of forbear ance, by allowing the publication of sedition, and when we have forced our treacherous enemy into submission granted most generous terms for his again uplifting and by many other courses which look like weakness. But whatever they look like, they are the expres sion of conscious strength that refuses to humble itself by adopting the methods and policy of panic, or by admitting any mistrust of the ultimate victory of noble principles. In like manner we have stood by the highest traditions of freedom in trade, of ports open to all, and of living and letting live. The worldwide Empire, which is the envy of the world, is not a pres...

School House and Church, Mopoon SlSf A POON JOTL MISSION STATION is near the mouth of the Batavia River on a sheltered bend about a mile from Port Musgrave Bay, which lies on the west side of Cape York Penin sula, about 120 miles south from Thursday Island. The Mission was commenced under Moravian auspices, with the support and co-operation of the Federal Assem bly of the Presby terian Churches of Australia. The first Missionaries were the Revs. Hey and Ward, who arrived in November, 1891. The position is considered both unhealthy and unproductive, and any attempt to cultivate in the low places, where some fair soil is to be found, releases gases from the vegetable mould beneath, which induce fever.

THE NATIONAL I. & A. EXHIBITION, BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 September 1902
TH6 NATIONAL I. & A. EXHIBITION, BRISBANE. The Exhibition, at Bowen Park, Brisbane, on August 13, 14, and 15, was a striking testi mony of the wonderful resources of Queens land under adverse conditions, and bear testi mony that the seeds of prosperity are being sown deeper and deeper every year, the diffi culties to be overcome only proving a greater stimulant to fresh efforts and greater resource fulness. In the State Farm exhibits, the pro ducts of the Westbrook State Farm, one could hardly believe were grown during a severe drought, the magnificence of the cabbages and cauliflowers, millets, etc., as you gazed on them, almost leading one to forget that such adverse conditions existed at all. As stated before, the effects of the drought were very marked in the case of live stock, although in the horse sec tion, especially the draughts, the entries were more numerous and of better quality than at some previous shows. The display of sheep, however, was the most meagre in th...
