"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone? Thursday Morning, July 29, 1897. NORTH QUEENSLAND MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by ? r Truth alone? Thursday Horning, Joly 29, 1897. NORTH QUEENSLAND MINING. Good news was received from Mareeba last week in connection with the Queen Constance Gold Mine. This mine has, perhaps, one of the most remarkable histories in Australian gold mining, and illustrates in a most vivid manner the wonderful manner in which mining in North Queens- land is carried on north of Charters Towers. The Queen Constance, from the date of its discovery until its liquidation-a term of about four years -produced nearly ¿36,000 worth of gold, and paid in dividends about ¿9,000, besides paying for all plant and machinery used on the claim. No call was ever, made until shortly before the liquidation of the company, I and yet in spite'of the mine's splendid I record ; in spite of the fact that the chutes of stone and gold still lived in the sink and the lower levels, a single zd call threw the mine into thc arms of. the liquidator. The surface...

The Age of Consent. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

The Age of Consent. Thus the irrepressible Hoolan on things in New Zealand :-" New Zea- land is about to adopt a new coat of arms, ' a female rampant.' That country has sown, the seeds of a first rate petticoat Government, and is reaping a harvest of aged and attenu- ated female with her back hair awash, who makes loud and persistent demands in a series of spasmodic shrieks for more " protection." Just here is a fitting spot to unload the truism ' That a woman who makes the loudest howl for protection is generally in the least need of it.' The latest demand comes in the shape of a petition from the W.C.T.U., <vhich woman in the country shall be .protected' until she has reached the mature age of 25 years. Here again is a good place to fire off another truth, ' The woman who requires legal protection against seduction up to tho age of 25 years is not worth protect- ing.' For our part wc are in favor of raising the age of consent for women to 8+ years, provided a similar me...

A Feasible Explanation. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

A Feasible Explanation. A explanation accounting for the inferior state in which fruit from the colonies arrives in London appears in a Blindareis exchange. - vit is headed " Wet Fruit:" To THE EDITOR.-Sir, 1 read with interest your reproduction from the Australasian .on the ¡above subject. There is no doubt that apples and like fruit can bc successfully carried to London if proper conditions prevail daring tba nm to London. The question is, why does one lot arrive home in good condition and another in bad ? I know for a fact that in many cases the failure is due to the ship - ping companies. In most instances the mail steamers have been bnilt with only sufficient boiler power to propel the ship ; the installa- tion of thc refrigerating plant having taken place years after without any additional boiler power being added, with the result that on the run home, to keep contract time with the mails, ¡fcc, the refrigerating machines have to b: stopped occasionally and at times run slow t...

FOR LASSITUDE, . TORPIDITY, SOUR STOMACH, INDIGESTION, HEADACHE, - , - - BACKACHE, &c ! Take a couple of Fletcher's Pills every second night ; they are a prompt and sure "cure and give certain relief. . FLETCHER'S PILLS are a quick, sure and reliable remedy for all com- plaints arising from torpid liver, weak stomach, indigestion, and impurities of the blood. They are prepared on rational and sensible lines and do not contain a particle of calomel, gamboge, or any drastic purgative, but operate by perfectly natural means, by stimu- lating the liver and increasing the flow of bile and thus producing easy evac- uations and natural catharses without the annoyance and pain of griping and purging. Beware of the many harmful sub- stitutes on sale in many shops. Nolie are genuine unless they bear thc sig- nature of F. Moore Clements on thc outside wrapper. CLEMENTS TONIC and FLETCHER'S PILLS have become such household words that imitations are frequently offered. We contend that th...

S.S. " MARANOA" MAILS. EDITOR OF THE " POST." [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 29 July 1897

S.S. " MARANOA" MAILS. EDITOR OF THE " POST." Sir,-Can you please inform me why the s.s. '* Maranoa" did not take a mail from Cairns when leaving for the South last Thursday night. At 7 p.m. I called at the Post Office for the express pur- pose of seeing when the mails by that steamer closed, and there was no word of any sort posted. Naturally I concluded that the steamer was not leaving until next day when I could write and post my letter. She left at niuo o'clock that night without a mail. Is it not a fact Sir, that Rix hours notice is al- ways demanded by the Post Office De- partment of the intention of a vessel to sail, and am I right in thinking that' thc " Maranoa" had no right to be allowed to leave without a mail. I know of two others who were very much incon- venienced by no mail going, although they posted important letters at the Post Office at 4 p.m. This matter wants sifting. I am. Sir. etc.. INDIGNANT. 24th July, 1807. [On making enquiry at the Post Office regarding th...
