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

Tho Kanaka Question. COMMUNICATED. IT is prophesied that a general elec tion will take place almost immediately after the assembling of Parliament, which has been called together to dis cuss the colored labor question. Before such an event can occur, the Govern ment will have to be defeated upon this question, and perhaps when the House meets and it is seen that they cannot command a majority, they might ask leave to withdraw the Bill and go to the country. It is not likely that the Government will be foolish enough to force the Bill through the House and court defeat when they see that there is no prospect of it pass ing ; and as they have a number of more important measures to introduce at the regular session, they will defer the colored labor question until that time, and it is reasonable to suppose that no doubt it would be better for them to do so. The colored labor Suestion as it stands demands imme iate attention, as the Kanakas, having served their periods of servitude, are ...

LONGREACH.J.P.'s' DECISIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

LONGBEACH .I.P.'s' DECISIONS. TO THE EDITOR. SiEj-I would like to ask your opinion re a decision given by two local J.P.'s at Long reach. One C. Dabo sued C. Morris for wages, and obtained a verdict for £1 17s.; bat the bench allowed the defendant fourteen days in which to pay the amount. Now, sir, I would like to ask if it is justice to keep a man waiting fourteen days for money which he has earned 7 Supposing the plaintiff has no weans at his command, be must either starve or beg, and in begging he would render himself liable to be arrested under the Vagrant Act. Yours, &c" LOVER OP FA IE PLAY. [You cannot squeeze blood out of a stone* The defendant might not have the money in .hand to pay. The Bench uses its discretion (p matters of this sort.-ED.]

CORRESPONDENCE. WE do not endorse the opinion* expressed by our correspondents. The oolumns of this paper we open to our subscribers for the ventilation of gnevanoes, the discussion of matters affeoting the oommunity, and for the publication of letters possessing public Interest. Personalities strictly exoluded. A GRAVE ERROR. TO THE EDITOR. Sm,-I wish to draw the attention of the public to a grave error made, I presume, by the road party at the crossing to the punt on the Thompson river at Longreach. When erecting posts at either side of culverts, they placed posts on the up-stream side four feet six, and on the down-stream side seven feet six high; the consequence is that travellers coming to the river when in flood may see a foot or two of post above water and will naturally think they can wade across, as the guide posts at other crossings on the river are all four feet six Either the tall posts at the Longreach crossing should be out down to the level of others or the nnmber of ...

FROM ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

FROM ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW. XUe publication is grossly inaccurate and unreliable. A part of it contains deliberate misstatements, and by far tbe greater por tion of it is one-sided or altogether away 'from the poiut at issue between the 'General' and the critics of his scheme. It abounds with accounts of cases of poverty and wretch edness, and of the Army's treatment of such cases, which may or may not be authentic, but which, at any rate, are calculated to en list sympathy with the social work of the Army; it almost absolutely ignores what are the effects upon society of such treatment, and the question which has been eo much debated as to whethsr the "General" ha made a legitimate use of the money in trusted to him by the public. Where the subject is dealt with at all in its bearing upon the general public, the issues are so glossed over or BO mixed that it is impossible for anyone who has not had actual experience of the "General's" work to judge it upon its merits. That this or ...

General Booth's Darkest England Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

General Sooth's Darkest mwgifw* Scheme. Tee first annual report of General Booth's "Darkest England" scheme has now been issued. Mr. Bramwell Booth stands sponsor for the book. This first year (writes Mr. Booth) has been largely occupied iu " build ing" the machinery of the scheme. The wise outlay of so large a oapital sum as that entrusted to the General has necessitated enormous labour as well as large delibera tion and caution, even at the expense of seeming loss of time. A GLANCE BOUND THE OBGANISATION. Then one of the most interesting features of the scheme, the Labour Bureau in Upper Thames-street, is introduced. To the doors of this bureau there go on an average every day a hundred workless people of all sorts and conditions. The figures for the year show fully 15,000 applicants, and for over 30 per cent of the number some kind of employ ment has been found. Briefly, " the eleva tors" or City workshops, the salvage wharf on the Thames, the prison-gate brigade, and the other d...

CONCERT IN BARCALDINE. LAST Thursday night a good audience as sembled at the Town Hall at a concert given in aid of tlic funds of tlie Methodist Cliurcli. Tiie first part consisted of ali sentimental mueic and singing, in which Miss Swain and Miss E. Glanville took part, together witli Messrs. Palmer, Hulme, Chandler, Marshall, and Reed. The Oddfellows' Band played the overture, and also performed outside the hall, being a complete concert in themselves. The second part opened with a pianoforte duet by Mrs. Hulme and Mr. Chandler, which was an artistic treat, marred by too much noise in the hall. Then came dissolving views from the apparatus owned and manipulated by Messrs. James Brothers, illustrating scenes in the life of "Little Nell," the Rev. Mr. Pike explaining the views by reading extracts from the " Old Curiosity Shop." By some mistake when the lecturer announced that the next view would [ represent the pathetic death of Little Nell, the showman introduced a slide bearing th...

In fairness to the police," he (your corresiwiidcnt) ought to hnve said that the police did interfere, not only quelling the disturbance, but afterwards by "taking out n summons against the ring leader. who uviH fiiicii £5 on the following Tuesday.

HE HAD 'EM AGAIN. MAC-WILL, of Wintnn, is on the wine again. The Barcoo election did it. As soon as tin? cumbers were up, Mac discovered Ryan was the man for his money after all, and the other fellow was no good whatsoinever. So the boys shouted for Mac and and that literary curiosity started on a prolonged drunk to the tune of' " Hark the Herald Hangels Sing!"' On Thursday night we were informed by wire that Mac was just recovering, but that when lie saw the green cover of the Western Chammon he fancied it was a heap of snakes crawling about on his office table, and called upon the Trinity for succor and salvation.
