GRIEVANCE AGAINST LANDS DEPARTMENT. ST. GEORGE, July 1. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 2 July 1907
GRIEVANCE AGAINST LANDS DEPARTMENT. &nbsp; (By Telegraph) &nbsp; &nbsp; ST. GEORGE, July 1. There is a demand for North Bur- gorah country. A selector named &nbsp; Cochrane selected 17,000 acres on the Moonie six months since. He arrived there about a month ago with 2000 ewes, and as the license to occupy had not been issued owing to the country not being surveyed, the lessees of the country are charging him £3 per 1000 sheep per month. The selector is naturally disgusted, and the question is asked—Why cannot the Lands De- partment issue a license to occupy as soon as the application for land is con- firmed? &nbsp; &nbsp;
TRAGEDY AT RICHMOND. AN AFGHAN MANIAC RUNS AMOK. SIX PEOPLE SHOT, ONE FATALITY. RICHMOND, July 1. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 2 July 1907
TRAGEDY AT RICHMOND. AN AFGHAN MANIAC RUNS AMOK. SIX PEOPLE SHOT, ONE FATALLY. (By Telegraph.) RICHMOND, July 1. A horrible tragedy was enacted here on Saturday night last, an Afghan named Ghunta Prod Guce firing a num- ber of shots while in that condition of mind disorder usually known as 'running amok.' and wounding sev- eral people, one of whom succumbed in a very short time after being shot. The startling circumstance happened about dusk, when THE REPORT OF A GUN alarmed the townspeople. The sound came from the north-eastern part of the town, and it soon transpired that a carrier named Duncan McMillan, who had arrived with his waggon on Fri- day and was busily engaged in cooking his evening meal, had been unexpec- tedly shot from behind. The wounded man was seen to run through a black- smith's shop, near to which he was camping, and, reaching the main road &nbsp; run a distance of some 50 yards, when he fell. The townspeople were natu- rally in doubt as to what had reall...

MUSIC IN TOWNSVILLE. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 2 July 1907
MUSIC IN TOWNSVILLE. (To the Editor.) Sir, Townsville people have had an &nbsp; opportunity during the past week of listening to band music as it should be played. And what a revelation to us all ! This is not intended as a eulogy on the performances of the Besses o' the Barn Band: nothing of the kind is needed, but with your kind permission I wish to draw the attention of the citizens of Townsville to the need of more liberal support to our local bands. We have plenty of material &nbsp; for the making of at least two bands equal to any resident in Queensland. Men have for years past given their &nbsp; time, energy, and what talent they may possess to help to make music a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; success :and that by a ?? more &nbsp; &nbsp; lively than it would l i.:i-r---. : have been :but they have always been han- &nbsp; &nbsp; dicapped for want of funds:for th...

PERSONAL. Amongst the visitors who arrived in Townsville by the western mail train on Monday were noticed Messrs C. M. Clarke (Maryvale), C. Leake (Kil- &nbsp; larney), A. Sheppard (Milroy), A. W. D.

The Bulletin. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, JULY 2, 1907. SPANISH INVASION. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 2 July 1907
PUBLISHED DAILY. &nbsp; TUESDAY, JULY 2, 1907. SPANISH INVASION. If it were true, which it is not, that as many as 1000 Spaniards are being imported to work on North Queensland sugar plantations the circumstance would not be worth the notice taken of the report that that is the case either from the labor supply or the racial point of view. That the sugar indus- try's demand for labor this harvest must exceed the supply is certain. The question at issue is the probable amount of that deficiency. Seeing that the cost of importing each laborer from Europe is heavy and that the rate of wages paid them must be the local standard rate the assumption that an excessive supply will be imported also assumes an objectless waste of money by the importers. No part of the passage-money of European immi- grants is paid by the Government, and it will certainly amount to twice the sum which cane-farmers have to de- posit with an application for an agri- cultural laborer to be imported from &...
TOWNSVILLE CARNIVAL. TO-DAY'S SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 2 July 1907
T0WNSVIUE CARNIVAL. TO-DATfS SHOW. During the past few days, and yes terday in particular,' towr.svllli' has presented nil the unmistakable signs nf nnnroaeliiilK : festivities, and tills week many of our northerners will be able to :mt aside the sterner duties of life and view their surround Ings in a lighter vein. The Show Grounds to-day should, under the present favorable weather conditions, present an exceedingly pleasing scone. Visitors have been coming in freely from the surround ing districts for some days past, and last night's train from the west brought another contingent of between 200 and 300. The grand parade of all exhibits at 1.30 p.m. will doubtless be an Imposing one, while the ring events promise to be keenly contested. Judging will commence at ten o'clock arid it is hardly necessary to say the judges will not have much spare time in the performance of their duties. Stewards will give competitors all the assistance possible and the arrange ment for tho successful c...

KANGAROO HILLS.

MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY. DEATH OF GEORGE SHERWOOD. EVIDENCE AT INQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Townsville Daily Bulletin — 2 July 1907
MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY. DEATH OF GEORGE SHERWOOD. &nbsp; EVIDENCE AT INQUIRY. On Monday afternoon an inquiry was held at the Townsville Police Court, before Mr Maurice Rheubon, &nbsp; J.P., concerning the death of George Sherwood, who committed suicide at the Palace Hotel on June 10th. &nbsp; Constable Gormley deposed that he was instructed to take charge of the body after death. When the Govern- &nbsp; ment Medical Officer examined the body he found a large wound at the rear butt of the right ear, and another at the rear of the left ear. The doc- tor was of the opinion that the wounds could have been caused by the dis- charge of a rifle. Witness examined the clothes of the deceased and found among other things one cartridge in the left-hand trouser pocket. Inspec- tor Gabraith, who examined the rifle, found one empty cartridge case and five full ones. On searching the room a flattened rifle bullet was found on the floor at the head of the bed. Edward Sh...

PROPOSED TROPICAL DIS- EASES INSTITUTE. NORTHERN PRACTITIONER'S &nbsp; VIEWS. During his recent absence, Mr Prit- chard took the opportunity of inter- viewing several medical men and as- certaining their views about the Tropi- cal Institute. One practitioner, Who has devoted a very considerable amount of time to the investigation of the various typical northern "fevers" and other complaints, expressed him- self strongly in favor of the scheme. He said, "Dr Hann has long advocated some such institution, and I think Bishop Frodsham is to be congratu- lated on the success that seems in sight. With the expressed strong ap- proval of the Federal and State authorities, and the support of the three universities, the scheme is bound to start under most favorable auspices. Professor Anderson Stuart, in his Royal Society address last May, spoke of his "constant shadow"—the builder—follow- &nbsp; &nbsp; ing him closely at the University, Board of Health, etc. He will sh...
