ROMA: ITS PRESENT CONDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 10 July 1875

A OMA : ITS PRESENT CONDmON. \ We have -frequently been astonished at the ignorance displayed by outsiders—more especi ally by those residing in the larger towns be tween Dalby and-the east coast—respecting our town and district. By many it is thought to be merely a rendezvous for a few wool-carriers; its size that of a paltry bush township ; and by many its position cannot even be guessed at. For the information of such, and to disseminate knowledge of' our importance in every respect,' we intend giving two sketches—one of our pre sent condition.; the other of our future prospects. The town of Roma is situated on the Bungil Creek, about sixty miles above its junction with the Balonne at Surat. It is the chief town of the Maranoa district, and is about 350 miles west" of Brisbane, 200 miles north of the New South Wales border, and 500 miles from the western boundary of the colony;; so that its position is nearly in the centre of Southern Queensland. It sprang into existence.some sev...

TROUBLES OF JOURNALISM. (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 10 July 1875

TROUBLES OF JOURNALISM. (From the Conner.) Not thelfeist of the difficulties which beset the conductors 'of public journals are those which spring from their correspondents' communica tions. Most newspapers have at least one resi dent in every place of sufficient local importance and interest to its readers to render it desirable tliat they should find information respecting it in their usual diurnal or weekly favourite ; but not every correspondent apprehends the real nature of his duties, or will be confined within the limits which they ought to impose. Many of them seem to think that they are called upon to contribute opinions, when they would save themselves and their principals no small trouble if they would confine their communications to facts ; and some are not alow, especially in con tributions to provincial journals, to convert the .publicity which their efforts receive into a source of great and sometimes undeserved and unneces sary annoyance to their neighbours.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. DISTRICT COURT CRIMINAL SENTBNCES. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 10 July 1875

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. DISTRICT COURT CRIMINAL SEN     TENCES.     To the Editor of the Western Star.   SIR,—Being present at the trial in the Dis trict Court to-day of Surlick, Walsh, and   M'Donald for the wholesale robbery from Mr. Sandeman's teams on the main road between Roma, Charleville, and Burenda, I was, as a resident of, and interested in, these outside districts, a   good deal surprised at what was considered by a large number of the community, the very lenient sentences passed upon the prisoners. I do not wish for a moment to reflect upon the learned judge who tried the case, as regards his doubtless conscientious convictions that the ends of justice were met by the sentences he passed, his Honor no doubt acting upon the maxim that "the object of punishment is the prevention of crime," but generally himself ac customed to adjudicate in the more settled and metropolitan districts...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. We are glad to be in a position to inform those interested in the building of the Cattle Creek Primary School, that there is every pros pect of their exertions being now crowned with success. On learning that there was a difficulty in raising local subscriptions to the required one-third of the amount of the lowest tender, the Scottish Australian Investment Co. at once intimated their intention of supplementing the deficiency, which amounts to about £50, thus making their donation in aid of this much required institution, over seventy guineas, or within a trifle of half the total amount collected. This generosity, however, is only on a par with others of the same nature emanating from this company since they became lessees of Mount   Abundance. On the evening of the 1st instant Mr.Tune, when driving his dray home, met with a serious accident. In attempting to stop his horse from running away by jumping out and going to the animal's head, he fell,...

THE LATE EARTHQUAKE COBAR. (From the Ilwerine Grazier.)

Though be had never beard or _ felt an earthquake, the impression made on his mind was that a shock had been felt, and, as he thought, in the direction of Gobar. Proceeding on his journey he found that at Tindara, distant forty miles from Gobar, a shock of earthquake had been felt, causing great excitement; the people rushing out of their houses expecting them to fall, At Cobar the ex citement was intense on the evening in question, the first sound heard was as though iron tanks were being beaten, followed in two or three minutes by...
