Thoughts on the Barcoo COMMUNICATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 1 March 1892

Thoughts on the Barcoo COMMUNICATED. TUE election for a representative, to take place on Saturday, will be one of the mosl important contests that have ever taken place on the Barcoo, and as a working man I should with your permission like to make a few remarks thereon. There are two candidates, one, T. J. Byan, a shearer, and from what 1 know of bim a very decent and well-educated fellow, the other W. H. Campbell, who an nounces himself as an independent. Byan bas been put forward by the Labor Federa tion, which is ruled practically by a coterie of Brisbaneites-men wbo have been only a few years in the country, and who have no stake in it.

And now they want to thrust Tom Byan down our throats 1 Shall we allow them ? I hope not ; not while we can have a fair impartial...

A PEW masked men entered the gaol at Dewitt, Arkansas, and shot and killed three men, named J. Smith, Floyd Gregory, and Mose Henderson, the last being a negro. Smith's wife recently succeeded in obtaining a divorce from her husband and one night shortly afterwards Henderson went to the house in which the woman was living and shot her, bat without inflicting a fatal wound. The negro subsequently confessed that Smith had hired him to murder his wife, promising him a generous reward. Smith and his son-in-law, Gregory, were thereupon arrested, tho latter being charged with guiding the negro to the house. It is thought that a rumour that Smith and Gregory would be released on bail led to the lynching of the prisoners. The police have no clue to the men who entered the prison. CLEÁMCE SALE.

I consulted doctors without number, and all without benefit, until my wife persuaded me to use Clements Tonic.
