Tli® Carrington* Gold Sfiiiifig Company. Tlie Scottish Leader, a daily paper printed in Edinburgh, has the following in its issue of May 7th CABBINGrTOX GOLD. " When we first introduced the Charters Towers gold ininies to the notice of our readers, we pointed out that it would be necessary for i them to discriminate very particularly be |tween the good and the bad. We have I again and again had good words for the Bril l liant, the Victory, Mills' Day Dawn U nited, and other proved successes, but have never hesitated to warn investors against those wild cat schemes that would inevitably follow in the wake of sound ventures, trading upon their sensational results. This week has witnessed the introduction of a Charters Towers property to the English market, which requires some looking into. More than one of our financial contemporaries received it with open arms, accepting without demur the statements of the parties interested in dispos ing of shares and ma king a market.

Our Weekly Croydon Letter. CROYDON, June 12th. [Newspaper Article] — The North Queensland Register — 29 June 1892
CROYDOST, June 12th. The month's returns, wliicli come "within this week's news, are, under the present; adverse circumstances, deemed to be satisfac tory, as showing what might have been with the help of a good downpour. Up to the present the increase for the year is 7G61fp2, compared with a similar, period of last year. I The stone averaged loz IGdwtrf 12grg to the ton, which at ?2 8s per ounce makes the average value of a ton of Croydon stone £4t 9s. This speaks for itself, and will bear | comparison with any goldfield in the world. II will, however, append the following figures from the Gfolden Age -The returns, for the month are far more satisfactory thaa was expected. The total amount of stone ! crashed was2,064i tons for 4,023ozs 17dwts 12grs ol mill gold, showing a decrease both in the tonnage and number of ounces compared with the same month of last year, but the average yield was 9 dwts. better, the average for May'91, being 1 oz. lOdwfcs. 8grs., and. and for last month 1 ...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Queensland Register — 29 June 1892
ATHLETICS. Alas that such things should be. The Port Douglas Times says:-i neat " take down " in the shape of a bet over a 4ft 8in jump took place on Friday last, a etoreman winning a " oner " off a packer, who "backed himself " to negotiate the stick and-failed. This led to another bet between the same storeman and a sporting-character, the latter giving £2 to £L that the aforesaid packer *'could not" do the 4ft Sin jump. The affair came off, a height-supposed to be 4ft Sin-was jumped; and the money was handed over by the stake-holder, without making the usual verification. Eventually it was found out that the height was really only 4ft 6in, the ends of both sticks which served as posts having been sawn off l|in. In the interests of athletic morality, we have no hesieation in characterising the latter affair " a swindle," penetrated by the party or parties who surreptitiously cut the sticks. Next day the sporting character-who was absent during the jump-demanded a show for his mone...
