The Iron Road to Stanthorpe. SECTION NUMBER TWO. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 18 October 1879

The Iron Road to Stanthorpe. SECTION NUMBER TWO. AN account was recently published in these columns of the works now in process of com-   pletion by Messrs. Overend and Co., which   will soon give us direct railway communica- tion with Stanthorpe. I recently enjoyed the advantage of making an inspection of "Number Two" section under favorable au-   spices, for Mr. Gargett vouchsafed his ser- vices for a whole day in conducting me over the section. I was released one fine morning about twenty miles away from Cobb and Co's. jostling coach, which, from the anti-Macadam condition of the road, rolled and pitched to such an extent as to produce sickness in one case, an unexpected contingency which compelled the unfortu- nate passenger to lay up for a day at a road- side hotel. But the jerking process of loco- motion, to which more robust stomachs were impervious, was somewhat lightened by the vocal performances of our old friend "Wil-   ...

THE COST or Modibk WAHTAHI.-The re peat experiments with steel guns in Germany has called up some interesting beta concern tag the increased coat of ordnance in modem timer We have but to go back to the days of the Crimea to find the ordinary weapon of out iron, which waa regarded aa good enough far killing and wounding toy our forefathers for centuries. A fleuf-nieea of cut iron, that carried a cannon ball of 10 or 12 lba. weight oould be faahioned for MS, or if made of brome or gun-metal the expense of ma terial and sasting waa not more than double the sum.

The Ipswich Woollen Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 21 October 1879

The Ipswich Woollen Factory. Wjc loam from Ipswich that Ibi? Woollon ' Factory hos suspended operations. The pre cis* cause of the stoppage is not publicly known, but it h feared that financial strin gency is at the bottom of it. A feeling pre* , vails that the directors ouglit to convene a meeting of the shareholders at un early date and lay the true position of affairs before them. That the undertaking should be allowed to collapse after much lias been effected towards making it a success is re garded with great disfavour; and it is not unjustly felt that if additional capital should be required the public should be invited to subscribe it 'without delny. At the sauic time there is considered to bo a possibility that the suspension is owing to causes uncon nected with finanoiol matters. Tho last I report was couched in very hopeful language, and nothing known to the public has 8:nco happened to account for a failure. All that I is known at present is that the operatives I have bce...
