Selector Levis Wants a Road. AND SHOULD GET IT. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 22 July 1897

8eleetor Lefii Wanto a Road. AND SHOULD GET IT. We are of opinion that the Municipal Council and Cairns Divisional Board are entitled between them to do something in tim shane of helping Selector C. Levis, who badly requires the completion of a track from the Chinsman's garden front- ing the Mulgrave Road at the Four Mile, to his farm. Levis is in an unfortunate position, in-as-much as it is now found that although he is rated bf the Divisional Board; this land is within the Municipal boundary. On the 84th April Levis re- ceived the following letter from the Council which, we think, clearly pledges them to action :- ...>."."?" Cairns Council Chambers, April 24th, 1897.

LOOKING FROM THE LONELY ROCK. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 22 July 1897

LOOKING FROM THE LONELY ROCK. THE island of St. Paul is morely a great rock in the Southern Ocean, it is tho top of a volcanic mountain. There are no means of sustaining life to be found on it. The nearest inhabited laud is Australia or Africa. To that ugly and desolate refuge came a boat containing nine persons-two of them women. They had food-on short allowance, for perhaps a week. In less than three days they were half insane from anxiety. Water, water, water everywhere, but no help. On the fifth day, at dawn, a brig hove to otf the island. They saw her. Shouting, praying, weeping, they stumbled to the beach, and were rescued. It was one chance in a hundred. I'll tell you win- some other time. But, alas ! isn't it as bad or even worse on land Ï Look at the physical wrecks in homes, in hospitals, and answer mc. One perishes of privation from shipwreck. A thousand perish of privation in tho midst of plenty. It isn't food they long for, but VOWER TO use IT-wornt and deadliest of »ll...

i N.S.W. Troops at the EnglUh Military Encampment. THE COLONIALS BEAT ALL COMERS. One of the most interesting and exciting features of the Military Tournament at the Agricultural Hall recently was the dis- play given by the New South Wales Mounted Rifles, and as a result of thc efforts of this ex- cellent boily of men the English home force has had to admit-and has done so unhesitat- ingly and willingly-that it has a lot to learn I from the New South Wales troops in the matter of horse-riding. "I thought I-contd I I ride almost^ "tfjjf1*, '"*. ^ **"'P"LT*' a horse, I tÄw^"and"ö*5^ay-c^ Tm' blessed if that chap Morgan don't beat every- thing," said a sturdy red-coat, referring to Rough Rider Morgan's performance on one of the New South Wales buckjumpers, and the remark of the candid Tommy Atkins was one that has been generally endorsed by all who have seen the performances of the New South Wales visitors On the opening night (Tuesday, 2 ; th May) the Rifles gave an ex- hibition of a ...

A Hodgkinson Fact. THIS SITUATION IN A NUTSHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 22 July 1897

A Hodgkinson Fact. THIS SITUATION IN A NUT SHELL I had a tour down the tiver the other day (writes the Townsville "Bulletin's" special from Thorn- borough), and the first man I encoun- tered was Mr Cummings, who, with one of his sons, was prospecting the Jolly Tar, on Deep Creek. They are so far satisfied that they have taken up the ground, and are to give the reef a trial. Mr Cummings held an interest in the Empress of India line of reef in the early days, and speaks of that claim and the Devon and Cornwall, on the same line of reef as worthy of a trial below the water level. What militated against miners often going deeper in the early days, explained Mr Cummings, was the fact of the shoot of gold often bearing gradually further away from the main shaft with depth, which caused considerable expense in working. When it came to the neces- sity of sinking a deep shaft to cut the shoot of gold a mine was almost in- variably abandoned, which can all the more readily be understood whene...

Bank Proofs. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

Bank Proofs. A short time a^o, says (he Wide Kay ! Nnvs, when the late respected firm of Woodrow and Son went into liquidation, some commotion was caused in commercial circles hy the action of the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney and the Joint Stock Bank with respect to their proofs. : It appears to have ¡teen accepted ai law that if t*o or more p-rsons enter into partner- ship and give their separate deens to a banking institution as security for advances made to the firm, the bank had the ri¿ht of proving against the estate fur ia total claims without first having to assess the value nf its securities received from the several niembe s of the firm. This vic» was expressed by Air Hutton, trustee in thc estate, and emphasized by him, intimating that the point had several times been de- cided. Mr Stafford, solicitor for thc finn, dissented from that conclusion, and main tainc I that the circtunttancei as they pre- sented themselves to him in thc debtor's statement would not permi...
