David, anxious and nervous, watches his nephew's face, as if to learn his content or discontent in it.

Jtotoa and (tonmtta. MB. EYAN, in his address at Long reach, announced himself a supporter of a State Bank.

The very name of the promoter was enough to inspire con fidence in the venture, and the 10s. orders came pouring in to "Artesian " frota all parts of the colony. Among the confiding investors was Mr. A. C. Swendren, of Spring Hill Station, Torrens Creek, and in due course he had the supreme satisfaction of hearing that he was the lucky drawer of Litigant, a starter, with a dividend of £7 Ms. 6d. So far so good; Mr. Swendren received the congratulations^? his friends, and duly forwarded the lucky ticket to head-quarters, but, alas, it was onl...

MUTTABURKA MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

MUTTABURKA MEMS. OUR correspondent writing on March 4th reportsThe pastoralists' meeting here was but poorly attended, only four being present. No doubt the heavy rain which fell during the night was the cause of the absentees being unable to come. Hut the shower has caused a delightful change in the weather, and now the nights are cool and pleasant.-A veiy sad accident happened on Dillulla, Mr. Grirasltaw's selection. Jack Dunn, one of the men in the employ, was driving a horse team with a water tank attached. The horses went quietly till they came to rough ground, but as soon as the tank began to bump the animals took fright at the noise and bolted. Dunn in liis attempts to 6top them was knocked down and the dray passed right over his body, also breaking one of his legs. Tiie poor fellow was taken into Longreach, and the doctor has very little hope of Ins recovery.-There seem to be lots of men moving about the country now. 1 suppose it is due to so many being dismissed from the ra...

CLEARING OFF A DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

CLEARING OFF A DEBT. IT will be seen by an advertisement in another column that a grand concert, in aid of the funds of the Primitive Methodist Church, is to take place at Uancke's hall on Thursday next (March 10th). The Revd. J. Pike, who has been laboring in this district for the past three years, will, in accordance with the system of itinerancy in that church, leave Barcaldine probably next week. At the evening service on Sunday last, the reverend gentlemen in notifying this entertainment stated that the ser vices next Sunday night might be the last that ho will conduct in Barcaldine. Tim church funds are not as might be expected, and Mr. Pike is desirous that the balance sheet of his Minis terial term shall be cleared up if possible before he leaves here. We believe that the inhab itants of Barcaldine, and especially those who have sat under his ministrations since his arrival hpre, will deeply regret his departure, and wish him Godspeed in every place to which he may bo sent t...

JUNDAH JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

JUNDAH JOTTINGS. Oun Jundah correspondent writes as fol lows under date February 27th:-Matters here are extremely quiet. No one visiting us would dream that the electorate was in the throes of a contested election. We have received no intimation of a visit from cither of the two candidate's. I hasten to assure both Messrs. Ryan and Campbell that they need not have feared an unsavory reception, as the liens have been for some time on strike, therefore the supply of eggs-rotten and otherwise-have long since run out.-The storekeepers and others are loudly complaining of the delay of carriers in delivering their loading, and though there is no immediate danger of a food famine, yet the supply of "strong waters" is likely to play out in a few days.-Between 9 ana 10 this morning, Feb. 27th, we were roused to unusual activity by the alarm of lire. It ap pears that the butchers-shop adjoining Mrs. Julia Grades' Jundah Hotel, had caught fire and the lignum roof was soon in flames, which, aid...

The Western Champion. Vita title literis mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, MARCH 8,1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

Vita title Uteris mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, MARCH 8,1892. THE election for the Barcoo is over, and the Union party has achieved a complete and decisive victory. The result of the ballot has shown that the Unions voted to a man for the labor candidate, and that not a single vote of theirs was recorded on the other side, unless it were a few stray voteB from carriers having other interests besides those which bind them to their Union. As it turns out, there was no need for the candidates to make speeches or canvass the electorate, or to give public expression to their political opinions. It made no differ ence whatever to the Union party who they were ordered to support, but undoubtedly the Parliamentary As sociation acted craftily in putting forward Mr. THOMAS Rya>' as their nominee, for, as Chairman of the Strike Committee, and subsequently as one of the political conspiracy prisoners, he represented, as no one else could, bush unionism as it was during the period of the gre...
