ROMA: ITS FUTURE PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 17 July 1875

ITS FUTURE PROSPECTUS The prosperity of Roma depends upon—(1.) The extension of the railway to it from Dalby; (2.) The judicious disposal of the local public lands. With regard to the former, we have at the present -time ample proof of the absolute need of the boon of railway extension, for one requires only to order a bag of flour at his store keeper's, when lie will be ..met with' the reply, "" Can oily let you have 501bs.; my goods have been five weeks on the road from Dalby, and goodness knows when they'll be here." Such a state of things occurs with us once, and some times, twice and three times a year, and on some occasions flour and other necessaries have been quite unobtainable. Not many years ago the inhabitants had to forego many of; their Christ mas luxuries and make merry on meat, rice, and sweet potatoes, .■ the two/ latter being in limited quantity. During some winters, grass ! being very scarce, the water-carriers and others ; whose services could not be dispensed wit...

BRISBANE. [from our own correspondent. 1 On last Tuesday the Land Bill was at length takeii into committee "by the Ministry, and it j was pretty considerably worried when it- did get there. The unfortunate Minister in charge of the bill (Mr. Fryar) did not seem to like his position, and appeared afraid to answer the questions propounded by Mr. Graham and other members, whether the Government had ever issued titles knowing the conditions were unful filled r he .referred them to the returns in course of preparation, and dodged, about, but at last stated that lie knew of no such case. It is re markable that such a. question as this the Ministry should have elected not 16 treat as a party question. The Treasurer invited a division, whereupon Mr. ■ MUwraithi took lip the chal lenge, "and moved the chairman -out of the chair,, which if carried would have resulted in putting the bill oflJiite p.aper ; 'but the voting was even,, and:the chairman voted with_the Government.

The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, JULY 17, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 17 July 1875

ROMA, SATURDAY, JULY 17, 1875. In reviewing the proceedings at the sitting of   our District Court last week, we find another to the innumerable list of arguments in added favour of the extension of the Circuit Court to Roma, and we hope to be able shortly to place before our readers carefully-prepared statistics showing the expense incurred by the authorities in sending prisoners to Too woomba for trial, including the cost of at tendant constables and estimated amount paid to witnesses. But it is not the Government, alone who are involved in unnecessary outlay and trouble under the present system. The public also are heavy losers, and when to the glorious uncertainty of law we add the glori ous uncertainty of the roads and creeks be- tween here and Dalby, we consider a person is justified in pausing before he passes the rubicon which divides our Police and District Courts from those higher tribunals of which the nearest is from 250 to 1000 miles away.

The business was unimportant, there being only one Petty Debts' action—-viz., Bryce v.

A billiard li cense for twelve months has been granted to James Flynn, of Mitchell Downs Hotel, and a timber license to Morris Donohue.
