NEW MASONIC HALL AT ARAMAC. THE now Masonic Hall was formally handed over to tlio Masonic body on 13th February (says oui Avamnc correspondent^ by the con tractor, Mr. C. H. lnmaiL, a local tradesman, who deserves very great credit for l lie admir able and speedy manner in which he has exe cuted liis work.

The main hall on the ground floor is 50 feet by 24 feet, the floor of which is laid down expressly for dancing with four-inch pine boards, and fitted with a movable stage, so that it can be used for entertainments of all kinds, and will be an undoubted boon to the district.

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

OFFICIAL INSPECTION. Mn. STANLEY, Engineer-in-Chief,paidaflying visit to Longrcach on Wednesday to take over the extension from the contractors, Messrs. Rothwell ar^d Langtree. The taking over is simply a matter of form, as Mr. Hoggan, the district engineer, is really the responsible offi cial. It ia. said that Mr Stanley was rather dubious tljt the fresh earthworks, where the line had MPCn temporarily damaged, might have beetwlunimed, but those who know Mr. Hoggan (Especially the railway contractors) arc not likely to include want ol* minute super vision among his failings. Of course the En gineer-in-t'liief commanded the use of a special train to fuike his august personage to Long reach andt back again. If economy is to be practised 0V1 the railways of the colony it must not be at tne discomfort of the great magnates of the line.

NEW COACHING ARRANGEMENTS. The time table for the arrival and departure of Messrs. Cobb & CO.'b coaches ('writes our Aramac correspondent), has been altered^*) suit the new time table on the Central Queens land Railway. Tbe coach will arrive here from liarcalaine at 8 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday nights, leaving again for Barcaldin'e on Thursday and Saturday mornings at 8 a. w., and for Winton on Thursday morning at 5 a.m., and Muttaburra on Thursdays and Saturday mornings at 5 a.m. This alteration is [of some slight advantage to the town, as the coaches remain here all night instead of simply passing through, and it dispenses with Sunday mails, which have always been a great drawback to business people hero.

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

VISITORS TO LOXGREACH. WITHIN the past few days Longreacli has assumed a very lively appearance, several teams arriving daily from XUracombe, and already a number of visitors are noticeable from the surrounding stations, most of whom will no doubt extend their visit until after the opening of the line and the races arc over. The principal hotels are now full and accom modation is getting scarce. However, as the new hotels are nearing completion arrange ments may probably be made for the accom modation of further visitors.

NEW BUILDING AT ARAMAC. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 February 1892

NEW BUILDING AT AKAMAC. Oon Aramac correspondent writes ;-Mr. Inman is now busy erecting for himself a large two storey building in Gordon-street, the ground floor of which will comprise two very nice shops, 14- foot by 16 feet, with rooms at the rear, 14 feet by 14 feet, the top story being intended for a billiard room, 30 feet by 28 feet, with an ante room, eight feet by 10 feet. This bnilding should also prove a very great acquisi tion to the town, and Mr. Inman informs me lie intends fitting the shops out with every convenience to suit liis tenants and the billiard room with a first-class table, cues, and other necessaries. I have only to mention that our old Hond, Mr. fi^orw fiends, has taken the billiard room, and intends running it imuoeif to ensure its being both a success and a credit to the district.

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

A CEREMONIAL POSTPONED, The last train from the terminus of Barcal dine left on Sunday afternoon and from that time Barcaldine becomes no more than a way side station. It was at one time resolved to celebrate the sad occasion by a farewell dinner in Shakspeare's hotel, and in honor of the im mortal bard it was resolved that the remains of the funeral baked meats should furnish forth the marriage table at the banquet in. honor of the opening of Longreach. It was intended to engage the local undertaker to play the Dead March in " Saul" over the remains of the once gay and lively city of the sand and to drink the toast of the clead city in solemn silence. The project was ultimately aban doned, as the town is said to be still very much alive and kicking and will never say die.

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

ROUREKS UP THE LIKE. AXOTHEK case of robberv has occurred atf Longreach, a valuable watch and chain hay ing been stolen from a bedroom at the Com mercial Hotel. The matter lias been reported to the police, but from the number of the " fra ternity" who are up there at present it is feared that it will be hard for them to tjrace the stolen property, If this sort of thing con tinues a " roll-up" will probably take piace; in fact such a course is already'being spoken of, it being considered the only method of ridding Longreach of a number of "contei-iiptible loafers who now infest it. Since writing the above our reporter says:-I hear the watch and chain has been mysteriously plaiji'd on the table in the room from which* it was taken. One of the "push" was arrested on Monday on a charge of being illegally on the premises of the Commercial Hotel, which may possibly account for the restoration of the Watch.

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

SCHOOL WANTED. JuDGiNo from the number of children at pre sent in Longreach, which number -will doubt less be largely supplemented on the opening of tlie line, it is high time steps were taken for the erection of a State School, in fact it should have been attended to long ere this. We understand some considerable time has elapsed since a return showing; the number of children then there (50), was forwarded to the depart ment, also stating that, the sum of £60 had been collected towards furthering the project. A reserve has been granted and it is to be hoped it will soon be put to practical use. There is a private school presided over by Mrs. Chippendall. She has a fair number of pupils and we understand from several of the parents of children attending the school tint her course of tuition and progress made by her pupils is most satisfactory.

HE BAROOO ELECTION. consequence of the editor of this paper ing absent from his business on an elec tioneering tour, we are unable to provide special reports on the local political situation, but we cannot do better than quote from the Bockhampton £Corning Bulletin, of various dates during last week, the admirable reports supplied to that paper by its staff ; and at the same time we have to congratulate the spir ited proprietors upon the enterprise they have shown in sparing no expense to render their telegraphic reports of the political meetings in the West accurate and complete in eveiy important detail.

Longreach Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 February 1892

Aongreach Races. TEE races which look pliiee at Longreaoli on Tuesday afternoon lost were got up to celebrate the opening of the railway to that town. The course was in excellent order, and is situated only about a mile distant from the town. The attendance was large, nearly all the residents of the town being present. The day was fearfully hot, the glass registering about 112 degs. The success of the raoes is due to Mr. F. E. Norris, the secretary, who has always been untiring in his efforts to promote honest racing, and by his courtesy to everyone has earned a good reputation amongst all with whom he comes in contact. The Premier visited tho course for a short time, but in trying to speak was unable to do so, owing to the oontinued uproar of a mob, who had proceeded thither to prevent him. As our reporter was engaged elsewhere we are only uble to give bare results, which arc aB follows: MAIDEN PLATE, of £10; I mile; w.f.a. For all maiden horses. Nomination, 10s. Hurrah ... ... ......

Oub Xlfracombe correspondent wrote on the 18th:-Since tho opening to Longrcach we have been kept busy loading up the goods wo have had for some time on hand, awaiting to be carried by rail, and the railway yard pre sents a deserted appearance to the one it once held when huge lots of timber and mer chandise was stacked everywhere.-The Pro gress Association met on Tuesday morning and drew up a hurried address to Sir S. W. Griffith on the local requirements, which are urgently wanted; trucking yards, a small Court House, and local justices, and all the available land thrown open for selection in small blocks. Mr. M. Mayers took charge of the document, and awaited the distinguished visitor to make his appearance, but the train went through before the presentation was made, Mr. Mayers getting a few nasty summersaults from the wires lately erected for working the signals. Mr. Mac arthur, P.M., received a severe fall from the same wire on his return from Longroach, which...

HE WOULD HAVE A CHINKIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 February 1892

HE WOULD HAVE A CHINKIE. SOON after the opening of the Palmer gold-field one of the almond-eyed residents (with wliich the Palmer and its district was infested) com mitted an offence for wliicli he was dealt with summarily, which meant six months in Towns ville gaol. After receiving liis sentence, he was put under the care of a constable, who was to deliver him safi'ly at Cooktown. En route the Celestial, who, by the way, had been an old resident of the colonies, and could converse English fairly well, liad the luck to trade on the simplicity of his escort; and, during the first night they camped out, gave hint the slip. On waking in the morning, the constable missed his man, and was fairly non-plussed. In his dilemma a happy thought struck him. Hundreds of Chinamen were then on the road. " Well, tlioy are all alike," said he to himself, and 1 must take, one to Cooktown." Waiting his opportunity, after some time, he espied a solitary Chinkic ambling along with his load, and pounced ...
