COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office. Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 5 June 1875

COMMERCIAL. Western Star Office. • Fridav Eveninsr. Mr. E. Beixgrove reports :— During the past week there are travelling to the west, having passed through this town, 4300 wethers, the property of Messrs. Oooper and Smith. These sheep are a portion of a lot of about 20,000 that are bound southward for sale as soonas collected. A fine lot of wethers, all fit, passed through on Wednesday fromTerrick Downs—Messrs. Govett and Thompson's—sold to the Co-operative Co., Bris bane. Their present condition is all that could be desired by the butcher. The state of the country for travelling will no doubt slightlv alter their con dition before they reach their destination. Grass is plentiful on the road, but" the weather being wet and cold, renders travelling at present a disadvan tage.

THE COOTINENTAL RAILWAY BILL. (Abridged from the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 5 June 1875

THE COOTINENTAL RAILWAY BILL. ■(Abridged from the Courier.) We tome next tcTtlie glaring weakrfess of the Continental Railway Bill—the enormous power of selection vested in the Ministry for the time 4>emg. Whatever mayTbe the nature as to lo calities of the reservation plan which the Speaker .prevented Mr, King from laying on the table of - the Assembly the other day, we take it that the nronVould be that provided fer by the billitself, | and this .area we have &o hesitation in declaring "toSe excessive, and the power bought of-dealing with it ' dangerous and inadmissable. It is in admissable becaMse altogether out of proportion to the requirements of the case. Take it that the line will cost even £4000 a mile, which we regard—and on reliable authority—as ah outside price, now on what ground can a reservation of <>4,000 acres per mile be SskeA ? Are we sup pose, in the first place, that, even assuming the price of the land were to be only 7s. ^3d. an acre, o...

SHEEP RAISING IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 5 June 1875

I—-SHEEP RAISING EST CALIFORNIA. * The slieep-bfeeder in California generally oc cupies a large tract of land, containing from 4000 to 90,000 acres, and "bearing tlie old Spanish name of " rancho." These ranchos are old Mexican grants, the title to which is recog nised by our Government according to the terms of the treaty with Mexico, and confirmed, upon the application of the owner, by United States ■patent. The price of these lands varies from 25 tents, to 10 dollars per acre, and the number of sheep they will sustain varies from ten acres to eacli sheep to "two or three sheep to the acre. The native grasses of Californ a—M;he Alfileria and Burr Clover—form the most nutritious of all known natural foods for sheep and cattle. The seeds of these -grasses become dry and ripe in May, and, from that time until the Decem ber rains, they form the only food of all grazing animals. Visitors to this country are astonished to see large bands of fat sheep and cattle.roam ing over what appear...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. S A I The Editor is not responsible for any opinion,s j expressed by {correspondents, as these columns arc open to the free discussion of aU subjects '■ of public interest. To tlie Editor of the Western Stai\ Sib,—In your issue of May 15th, I see a letter on the subject of licensing public houses, signed "Com mon Sense." My impression on reading it was, that the -writer was more conspicuous for the absence, than the possession, of the very useful quality the name of which hea.dfla+n or-in*. ,iojnae ne enquired a little more clesely, he would have found that two out of the three cases to which he alludes, occurred at a considerable distance from Charleville, and that the third will in all probability assume a very different aspect on the production of witnesses at to character, or rather, the want of it. Indeed so strong is the feeling upon the subject throughout the district, that a subscription is on foot to defray the costs of the defence. As to there bein...

THE NEW LAND BILL. (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 12 June 1875

the new land bill. (From ike Courier.) The principle of deferred payments tor lana has already been adopted, and the only no vilfcy proposed by the bill is its application to sales by auction. Its chief merit is the faci lity given for making payment for land out of profits, instead of with capital. In many cases people will make speculative purchases just as they do now, and as they will always do, speculating for a rise in value, and expect- j ing to sell before the second or some future payment becomes due. Their field of action will be somewhat enlarged if the proposed ; bill becomes law. But .such men will, under no circumstances, invest money in the actual occupation of land any more than a jobber in shares -will go out a.nd open a mine. Hie majority will purchase the land for the sake of the money they can make out of it/and by ' deferred payments will be enabled to devote the bulk of their capital to actual improve ment. Neither is the sale subject to conditions a very new f...

THE DISQUIET OF EUROPE. (From the Town and Country.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 12 June 1875

THE DISQUIET OF EUROPE. (From, the Town and Coimtry.) For many months past tlie information re ceived conveying the state of Europe has been such as might awaken deep concern ! At almost all times, it is true, there are disturbing elements somewhere in tjie circle of European nations. But there is tlis pecu liarity about the present hour—that in every country there are symptoms of unrest, seen in costly but ineffectual efforts to attain security, perpetual apprehensions of hidden dangers, and disappointment sinking into despondency. These are "signs of the times" that awaken various expectations. We do not pretend to unravel their prophetic meaning, but any one who reads attentively the reports coming from the several countries of Europe may see that trouble is in store. Hope suggests that it is only the trouble which inevitably attends a crisis by which the world is to ad- j vance into a higher stage of progre®. France has at last obtained the enaction of a regular Republican Gover...

The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 12 June 1875

Sfe Mcsicru JjfoL ROMA, SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1875. :—9~~' That tlie bill authorising7 the extension of tlie western line to Roma will become law, we do not permit ourselves to doubt: on all sides its necessity is admitted, and no one seems disposed to oppose the immediate com mencement of tlie line. Tlie exact method of payment is another matter; but whether ulti mately the cost is to be derived from the land; sales or remain a loan, the line will be con structed whichever party is in power, and we may congratulate ourselves upon the fact. There is one point upon which the towns people should be on the alert, in order to pre vent the jobbery which in old time was wont to be resorted to : there should be no mistake as to where the terminus is to be. The plans should distinctly set that out, and time should be given to the residents here to consider its suitability as regards public convenience. Both at Warwick and Dalby the stations are inconveniently placed, and were so chosen, especi...
