THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 February 1892

THE ELECTION. WHO came to lielp ua when we fell, With sympathy and cash as well ? And told our foes to go to H ? Honest D. S. B. Who has the kindly open heart: And pluck to take a poor man's part ? Who gives no friend a " Yankee start ?" Honest D. S. B. Who's blunt in speech but kind in deed ? Who's first to help in time of need ? Nor cares a d for class nor creed ! Honest D. S. II. Who tells the truth out straight and clcar ? And knows no taint of coward fear, Whom wo will greet with lusty cheer Honest D. S. B. Good faith! I speak without a jest, Amongst all those who would contest Tlio vacancy, the very best Is honest D. 3. B. And when upon the fifth wo meet We'll win for him the vacant seat, He can't, he won't, he shan't be beat Our honest D. S. II. Roll up ! Roll up ! He'll head the poll He mostly does, God bless his soul Though slandered, he's not in a hole. " No fear," says D. S. B.

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 February 1892

|)i£ H$tcm Vita sine Uteris mors est. M^C^I^.TuESDAY^ F£ BRUARY16 J892 "WE have alroady once or twice alluded to the very great injustice which is being directed against the people of Central Queensland by the wholesale alienation of the best of the downs country to replenish the Treasury in Brisbane. To a large majority of the colonists the sales of large blocks on the western downs at ten shillings an acre may not be considered as hav ing any prejudicial effect upon the settlement of the country, because they have had it dinned into their ears that there are so many millions of acres belonging to the Crown, and that only a small area has been alienated; in fact, to sell 500,000 acres of land is only like cutting a very small slice out of "an abnormally large Christmas pudding. This is correct from one point of view, but entirely misleading if regarded in the proper light. Take the Central Division of Queensland, and out of that large territory how much land is there which will fet...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. *- - THE RECENT BUSH TRAGEDY. TO THE EDITOB. SIB,-In your issue of February 9th, there is an article headed " Death, in the Bush," and you speak rather strongly of the action of the Iengthsmen in the camp near to which the poor man died. Who your informant was I do not know, but it evidently was someone who must have been informed secondhand, and not an eyewitness, for it iB anything but a plain statement of facts. As one of the Iengthsmen kindly allow me to state what I saw and know of the matter. On Monday, February 1st, the deceased pas sed our camp two or three times between II and 12 a.m. On the last occasion he asked me the way to the bore. I directed him and he drove away. Between 1 and 2 p.m. I saw him returning, having a carrier riding a horse alongside the buggy. They went down to a watorhole some 300 yards from our camp. Charles W. Kingston, a horse driver (who gave evidence before Mr. M'Arthur), says, " About 2 o'clock the carrier came to him and s...

THE ODDFELLOWS' BAND. TO THE EDXTOB. SIB,-There have been some nasty com ments made by unionists because the Odd fellows' brass band has accepted ah engage ment to play at the reception of Sir S. W. Griffith and the Rockhampton visitors. I should like to say that the bandsmen know no politics or differences in creed or olass. They have on sereral occasions given their gratuitous services to the unions in their processions during the strike, and they can not refuse to assist in the reception of the Premier of the colony.

The Position at Isisford. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 February 1892

The Position &t leisford. ODE correspondent writing on February lltli says:-Attention is being directed to the matter of who shall represent us in Parlia ment. Most people seem pleased that C. L. Hill has withdrawn, evidently he is not in very good favor with the electors-his successor Mr. D. Budge being considered a far more eligible man. It is to be hoped that tho candidates will before election day visit us and expound their ideas. They can depend on having a good attendance, and I am certain they will get a fair hearing. Last night a meeting was held for the purpose of electing a committee to work in the interests of Mr. Daniel Budge. Mr. Harry Brock hurst occupied the chair. The only business transacted was the election of Messrs. Brockhurst, Price, Rody Carroll, Richard Carroll, R. Appleton and D. R. McLennan as members of the said committee. At a committee meeting of the above committee held this afternoon, Messrs. J. Affleck and Chas. Chard were added to tho committe...

The Barcoo Election. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 February 1892

Tho Barooo Election. THIS time last year the opposing forces of capital and labor were girding up their loins for a trial of strength, and a struggle ensued in whioh if no hard knocks were given many hard words were used. This year the battle begins again, but this time it is a legitimate and perfectly constitutional contest. The confliot lies between the supporters of two candidates. Mr. Budge represents local interests and separation from Brisbane ; Mr. Ryan represents the Australian Labor Federation and Brisbane versus the Barcoo. The first public meeting in the electorate was held in the Town Hall at Barcaldinclast Thursday evening. Mr. Ryan's specch is published in externa elsewhere. It contained many illogical propositions which the speaker himself could nardly fail to observe. For instance he declared that if a man had no voice in the making of the laws he owed no loyalty to the law. The absurdity of such a statement is at once seen. A constable has not the privilege of votin...

Magisteral Inquiry. Tjif P.M. at Barcaldine held an inquiry on the 9th and 10th February, concerning the death of Mr. Archibald Bahton who was found dead in the bush between Barcaldine aud Ilfracorabo on the Cth February. The evidence given was in accordance with the statement of the sad occurrence as published in recent issue of this paper. As there has been some public indignation excited by the apparent inhumanity of persons who ought to have assisted the dying man, we extract from the depositions the portions principally referring to thiB matter. Ono witness, Charles William Kingston, said ho was at his father's camp at about 5 p.m., there were seven other men besides himself. He had previously seen a man near a buggy from which the horses had been taken out and turned adrift with the harness on. " At 5 p.m., he could see tlis buggy from the camp but not the man. But he heard some one singing out as if in pain. He could not distinguish words beyond Ah ! and oh ! He heard that at...
