Death of Mr. J. T. Bull. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 24 August 1889
Death of Mr. J. T. Bull On Thursday morning townspeople &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; were somewhat taken by surprise by the news of the death of a resident of very long standing, Mr. John Thomas Bull, &nbsp; who expired at his residence at about 3 a.m. Perhaps the more intimate friends of the deceased were partly prepared for his final leave-taking, as during the last &nbsp; year or so he had been in anything but the best of health, and only a few mouths back he had an attack of illness from which he only recovered with the greatest difficulty. Yet his death was unthought of by the majority, and its suddenness created many expressions of surprise and sorrow. Mr. Bull was be- coming quite an old identity in the place, and his arrival here dates back some ten or eleven years. During the whole time he was connected with store- keeping pursuits, for a couple of years on his own account, and at the time of his death he had charge of the stor...

GENERAL MINING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 August 1889
GENERAL MIXrXG XOTivS. At tho Eureka Gold Mine the last clean- j lag up returned Ml oz as the produce of 200 tons stone. At Mt. Shoobridge operations are being interrupted by the shortness of water.

The Transcontinental. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 August 1889
The Transcontinental. in running through the latest pub- lished debates of the House of Assembly ; we were rather surprised to find so many references to the Transcontinental Railway scheme, and the generality nf the opinions opposed to the continuance of the line. Relieving that our readers will feel interested in anything closely connected with this work we supply a number of these opinions hereunder: - Mr. J. 0. P. Johnson agreed with the Government with regard to the extension of the Transcontinental Railway, which would open up good pastoral and mineral land. When the inevitable time came for the separation of the Northern Territory from South Aus tralia (and he had lately been led to think that such a separation would not be altogether undesirable) lie hoped the line of demarcation would be altered from the twenty-sixth parallel to the twenty-second. That would give South Australia a strip of good country which would be reached more easily from Adelaide than Port Darwin. The r...

My-country Intelligence. (From our Correspondents). UNION REEFS. August 27. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 August 1889
(From our Correspondents). UNION REEFS. August "27. As far as lean gather things continue about the same here as regards reefing, but we had some excitement at the end of last week through the outbreak of n fire in China Town. 1 regret to say it burnt out the most decent and deserving storekeeper among.it the Chinese we have here, viz., Yen Kit Loon«. He estimates his loss at £2000. I thought at one time that the whole of China Town was doomed, but a shift of wind saved the remainder. I do not think there has yet been a policeman here to enquire into the matter, although it is freely asserted that tho hand of an incendiary was at tho bottom of the whole affair, and as things are taken so easy it is very possible that the next attempt of the kind may bo made upon European property. It is known that during the excitement occasioned by the fire, several yellow thieves managed to walk oft' with a considerable amount of plunder, and its quite within the region of probability that the who...

Tho chief cook aud a fireman of tho Centennial were drowned, and others of tho crew aro missing. She went down in seven fathoms of water, portion of her funnel being visible. Tho Kanahooka has gone into dock for repairs. The Marine Board find that Captain Lessing, of the sunken vessel, steered contrary to the rules of the Navigation Act, and will probably suspend him. Tho rescue party still continue their exertions at the Globe colliery, working up to their waists in water. Several moro bodies have been re- covered.

TYPHOID—A QUERY? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 31 August 1889
TYPHOID-A QUERY ? To THE EDITOR. DEAR SIR,-Can you or any of your readers inform mc how it is that typ- hoid fever never broke out in thc Chinese quarter of Palmerston before the Board of Health exercised its useful inilnence in cleaning up the muck there ? I contend that if over-crowding and foul air caused thc outbreak at Fannie Bay Gaol, it is miraculous that China Town, which abounded in tilth, stenches, and general rottenness, has not to my know- ledge produced one instance of typhoid fever. I would very much like to see that accounted for by some of your scientists.-Yours faithfullv, Palmerston, Aug. 27. J. ll.
