INCREASED RESERVE WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 1 March 1892

INCREASED RESERVE WANTED. THE matter of the smallness ot' the reserve at Longreach, which at present embraces only an area of some 22 square miles, is a subject that bas been frequently discussed of lab; by those interested, but no definite action has been taken towards obtaining the increased area. A reserve proportionate to the size of the town is a sine gua non, if business is not to bo hanvpered, aud no time shonld be lost in urging the Lands Department to grant an area at least equal to that at Barcaldine. There is every prospect of the new city on the Thomp son becoming an important centre, with con siderable team traffic, and a small reserve is useless ; the grass would soon bc eaten out, and local businosB would be seriously affected, because carriers could not come into town if there be no grass for their stock, and they would naturally go elsewhere. Tho reserve at Barcaldine has been found too small, and ' it is anticipated there will be an equal amount of traffic at Longr...

YOUR ISISFORD CORRESPONDENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 1 March 1892

I YOUR ISISFORD CORRESPONDENT. I TO TBE EMTOB OF THE CHAMPION. I SIB,-I hear in town that your correspon dent has been getting himself into hot water over some articles appearing lately. Kow, sir, it is pretty rough on a man that he should get into trouble for telling the truth, and not the whole or worst part of it either, evidently some parties see the applicability of his remarks and naturally do not like it. I heard it remarked a few days ago that he was very foolish in exposing a few of the failings of the residents of Isisford, as he gets his living from them. My idea is that he has only done right, and deserves every credit for bis efforts to put down what can only be considered disgraces to any civilised com munity. Apologising for trespassing on your valuable space. -I am, yours truly. : SPOT. Isisford, 19th Feh. 1892. A TELEGSAJI from Gosport, Indiana, states that Cora Allen, aged 18 years, was abducted the other night, and not found nntil two days afterwards, when she was...

Mr. Campbell at Blackall. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 1 March 1892

Iffr. Campbell at Blackall. REPOSTS and telegrams from Blackall state i that Mr. W. H. Campbell's meeting at \ Blackall was a great success. A bit of an j uproar occurred through the persistancy of Mr. Casey to address the meeting, which was ( respectfully declined. Mr. Casey, and in ( fact others of his party, seem to think that in f dogging the footsteps of Mr. Campbell , through the electorate, and interrupting his ( meetings they are doing what is right, but ( right minded people think otherwise and get , thoroughly disgusted at such conduct. The j old maxim "Where ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise," can safely be applied to Hr. Casey and other labor agitators who are 1 now stumping the country. The following report of the meeting arrived here too late for publication in our last issue, 1 but it may be of interest our readers to know 1 the particulars. ' Mr. Campbell addressed a large audience . at the Town Hall on Monday night. The Mayor (Alderman C. Carkeek) was in the ...

Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 1 March 1892

-Ax |totesi Hud (tantínís. THE approaching polling day for the vacant seat in Parliament foi this electorate has made things look rather lively around Barcaldine. Kombera of pastoralists and members of the labor unions have been stay ing in town for some days, ana the hotels are doing good " biz." When the election is over no doubt all will calmly settle down like the lion and the lamb. IT is stated that there was no cere mony at Longreach at the opening of the railway to that town. The line was not declared open, and no champagne introduced to christen it. What a thousand pities onr Longreach friends did not see their way clear to send a few cases for the occasion. There would then have been plenty of rejoicing and very little booting. SIB GEORGE G-BET leaves New Zea land for England early next month. It is not known when he will return to the colony, if ever, so there is little chanoe of Iiis visiting Queensland at the next general election. For some time past Sir George has been ...

Round Camp Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 1 March 1892

A FEW days later we entered Slumgumbud gery run, a nice bit of country partly owned aud managed by a Mr. Bertram, a genial old gentleman of some 65 summers. Mr. Milli gan had gone to the homestead to give the requisite notice of intention to cross the run, and did not return to camp until late in the evening. He reported that Mr. Bertram not only made him stay to dinner, but invited him to spell a day or two at thc Home water hole, a fine lagoon, within a couple of miles of the homestead. Milligan said Bertram had taken quite a fancy to him, and was going next morning to have a look at the "monkeys," as perhaps be might like a few of the rams, and peradventure make a deal. Fer the past week the drovers had been push ing along fearing the commencement of the wet season, but all signs of rain had dis appeared again, and as the stock were tired the offer of the good-hearted manager of Slumgunbudgery was gratefully accepted. Next morning a buggy drove up containing a grey-headed man acc...

BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, MARCrTÜo92T THE introduction of Italian immi grants into this colony, to labor in the sugar industry must not be considered a success, as when the subject was first mooted considerable discussion arose in the principal labor centres as to the advisability of encouraging them to come out here. This race of people are not born laborers, but are a chu» distinguished for their industry and determination to overcome the many difficulties they have to contend with in their path through life. In their own country they are regarded as a peaceful and law abiding people, ready and willing to toil to the very utmost for a small renumeration with out scruple and without diffidence. They preter a travelling and bartering life to that of servitude, hence their business character as hawkers and dealers throughout the colonies. They are also good musicians and vocalists.
