DUCK RIVER REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 8 November 1890
DUCK RIVER REQUIREMENTS &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) The report of the recent deputation which visited Hobart from this part of the country to place our requirements before the Minister of Lands, contained some very severe reflec- tions upon Mr. C. K. Sheard, which were entirely uncalled for. It was stated that the &nbsp; speakers of the deputation considered Mr. Sheards report very unsatisfactory, but there must have been a mistake made by your Hobart representative, or else the members of the deputation forgot themselves and wilfully tried to cast a slur upon Mr. Sheard's work. As a matter of fact the mem bers of the duputatlion and our league here &nbsp; know that if Mr. Sheard's instructions from the Minister of Lands were to report as to the desirableness of making a survey, us when he was down here for the purpose of obtaining the necessnry information some of the mem- bers of our Improvement Association re- marked t...
STANLEY HARBOUR IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 8 November 1890
STANLEY HARBOUR &nbsp; IMPROVEMENTS &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We are pleased to learn by wire from our Hobart correspondent that tenders have been accepted by the Government for the 165 peppermint gum piles to be used in the con- struction of the 'Stanley jetty. The success- ful tenderer is Mr. J. S. Lee, of Duck River, the amount of his tender being £597/8/3, the prices varying from 1/3 to 2/,per lineal foot. All piles are to be delivered by the 31st December next, and work will be commenced as soon as possible. &nbsp; We think the opinion is generally conceded that Stanley Harbour will only be a fair weather port until the breakwater is built, and it is a mistake that the money for both the breakwater and Jetty was not voted so that both works could be gone on with to- gether ; but at present the jetty only is to be built. The work is in the hands of the department, and we understand that tenders will be called for the construction...
FATAL ACCIDENT AT IRISH TOWN. STANLEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 8 November 1890
FATAL ACCIDENT AT IRISH TOWN. &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) Stanley, Thursday. &nbsp; &nbsp; A sad and fatal accident happened at Myrtle Hill, near Irish Towu, to-day, by which a young man named Frank Gorham , son of Mr. Martin Gorham, of Irish Town, aws killed while falling a tree. It appears that the deceased was working at a large tree on a scaffold he had erected, and that when the tree commenced to fall, as he imagined, it must have come back again and fallen in the opposite direction to where he -thought it would. From the marks in the locality it looks as though Gorham had jumped off the scaffold when the tree rebounded, and in endeavouring to get clear of it tripped over some logs and old-man ferns on the ground. The tree in swinging back and falling struck another tree about halfway down, which caused the butt to swing round and fall upon Gorham, striking him on the head. The force of tho blow was so great as to take off a part of the scalp of ...
