MAIN ROAD BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
MAIN ROAD BOARD. ?The secretary stated that tho Govern ment grant would show an increase on that of past years. The vote this time was .£11 per mile east and £6 per mile west of Wynyard.

The secretary was in structed to write to tho Government and bring the matter under its notice. Mr F. King's offer to make an approach to Mr Gates' residence for£l was accepted. A letter was received from Mr F. King, in which he offered to supply the trust with 40 or 60 yards of stone at 4s per yard.; The offer was accepted. This terminated the business of the meeting.

THE ALLEGED LIBELS. The statements which the Premier took exception to were contained in a letter to the 'Mercury ' of October 25, signed by Captain Parker. They were as folio w : — 'I have just returned to Tasmania, and seen the report of the Right' Honorable Sir Edward Braddon's speeches inl the Assembly on October 20. If correctly re ported he said : — 1. That Imade a falsa charge against another officer. 2. That the Auditor-General showed me that I was wrong. 3. That I did not demand an in quiry. All these statements ore wholly and absolutely incorrect. I emphatically contradict them, and believe that Sir Ed ward Braddon knew they were false when he made them.; . .. . . . .The whole mat ter of my dismissal is one in which Sir Edward Braddon is using his public posi tion to gratify his private enmity. ; More than two years ago he did me the honor to quarrel with me.

The Rubicon Bridge. AND A CLOSED ROAD. A SERIOUS COMPLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
The Rubicon Bridge. AND A CLOSED ROAD. A SERIOUS COMPLAINT. ? There is a great deal of interest being taken here (writes our Frankford corres pondent) about the Rubicon bridge. The settlers are anxious 'that it should be erected, as if it were built and the road made in some of the worst parts it would be the shortest way from the North West Coast to Launceston, and would also moke communication between there and the gold fields of Beaconsfield and Lefroy. From Latrobe to Beaconsfield would be about 35 miles, while the present way necessitates a journey of about 90 miles. being 55 miles further. It would also enable us to take our produce toDevonport, and purchase our stores there or at La trobe, which are as cheap to buy in as Launceston. ' There are a great many complaints here about our road being stopped by a recent purchaser of a piece of useless land which the public have had undisputed right to for about half a century, and it is to be hoped that the Harford Road Trust, on wh...
