Thornborough Notes. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPOSDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 June 1897
Thornborough Notes. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Since my last only two crushings have been put through. At the Union Mill 64 tons from the Lady Francis, owned by Macpherson. Moffat and Dalby, gave a return of between 23 and 24 dwts, the gold being worth £3 18s per oz. ; the other crushing was at Sam the Romans Camp (Mathen's &nbsp; Hill) where a parcel of 90 tons were put through for a return of about 4 dwts per ton. The returns from this quarter will have to be much better &nbsp; than this for the battery to pay for the expenses of removal and re-erection. &nbsp; A serious accident happened to one of the engine-drivers of the Vulcan &nbsp; &nbsp; Battery, last Sunday morning; he fell &nbsp; and had both legs crushed in the &nbsp; machinery, and was taken down to Cairns ; under the direction of the doctor: It is likely that both legs will have to be amputated. The Warden went out to the Camp yester- day to hold an inquiry int...

School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 June 1897
School of Arts. The ordinary monthly meeting of the Cairns School of Arts was held in the building on Tuesday last, 2nd June. Present : Messrs B R. Staf- ford, P.M., J. G. Hoare, T. S. Hope, D. Shepherd, Rev. Maitland Woods; and P. G. Morton: Accounts to the amount of £20 3s 7d were passed for payment on the motion of Mr Shepherd, seconded by Mr Hope, and it was stated by the President that the expenses of repair- ing and painting the building would nearly exhaust the balance at the Bank. 'The subsidy from the Govern- &nbsp; &nbsp; ment would, however, be due at the end of June, so that finances would be comparatively easy. On the motion of Mr Morton, seconded by Mr Hope, Mr G. W. Le Vaux was elected a member of the Committee, in the room of Mr J. F. Hollis, resigned. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mr Le Vaux for his hand- some donation of 27 books. The question of the purchase of new &nbsp; books was discussed, and the President &nbsp; thought ...
QUEENSLAND. TOWNSVILLE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 June 1897
QUEENSLAND. TOWNSVILLE, Tuesday. The Cairns Naval Brigade arrived &nbsp; &nbsp; in Townsville on Monday at 5 o'clock and were met on landing by the Townsville Brigade and the Kennedy Regimental Band. They marched straight to camp. The excellent physique of the Cairns men was the subject of general comment.- The Brigade is numerically stronger than any corps in camp. Leiut De Choir has the general command of the Brigade, Leiuts. T. F. Swallow and J. G. Fearnley assisted by Warrant -Officer Madford, carrying out the company and routine drills. There are 444 men in camp, all told, com- prising 30 officers, 48 noncommis- sioned officers and 366 rank and file. The encampment is a great success and all hands are putting in good work.

St. John's Sunday School Pic-nic. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 June 1897
St. John' Sunday School Pic-nic. A pic-nic for the children attending St. John's Sunday School was held at Freshwater Creek on Monday, 24th May. After a short service in the Church, 96 children marched down to the Railway &nbsp; Station, where they took the 8.30 a.m. excursion train, and were, landed without mishap at Shambrook's Selection, Fresh- water. Although only 96 children left town, over 120 sat down to lunch at half past eleven, and the teachers who attended the pic-nic have since been &nbsp; &nbsp; puzzling their brains to solve the problem of how 96 children in Cairns grew into 120 at Freshwater. Of buns, cakes, sandwiches, sweets, fruit, etc., there was an abundant supply, and Mrs R. Craig, who had charge of the providoring &nbsp; department, must have a pretty good idea of what a youngster's idea of a good time is, for there was enough to provide the children with three hearty meals. After lunch a number of handsome toys were &nbs...
BRIEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 June 1897
BRIEFS. The Rev. E. R. Gribble was last meeting of Committee, elected a life member of the Cairns School of Arts. A good unostentatious worker-the Rev. E. R. Gribble. A picnic, to the Mission Station would open the eyes of everybody to the vast amount of really practical work going on at False Cape. Fencing, building, ploughing, stock work, teaching the little black kiddy- widdies - nothing comes amiss to this energetic sky-pilot. Strikes this paper that the Church of England in Cairns is better repre- sented just now than for many years past. Which reminds us that the Rev Parson Nobbs is very ill. , Word was received from New South Wales last week to the effect that the Rev. gentleman is laid up with a severe attack of pneumonia - very ill. Let us hope that Mr Nobbs pulls through his trouble all right. He has many warm friends in Cairns who have long since forgiven and forgotten, and. who are always glad to hear of his continued good work in the Church in New South Wales. He has a ...
"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." Wednesday Morning, June 9, 1[?] HAMBLEDON PLANTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 June 1897
"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Wednesday Morning. June 9, 1897. HAMBLEDON PLANTATION Most of our readers are already aware that a change has taken place in the ownership of and management of Hambledon Plantation., This planta- tion has passed from the hands of the Messrs Swallow Bros. to the Colonial Sugar R. Company, and curiosity as to terms of sale is brushed aside by &nbsp; the more important thought regarding the influence of the change upon our material welfare. Hambledon Planta- tion has always been an important factor in that welfare, and we trust that, it will continue long so to be. Most of our readers are familiar with the history of Hambledon; how it was first formed by one of Australia's chief pioneering architects,-the late Mr T. Swallow; subsequently pur- chased by Mr RA Kingsford, and leased to Messrs Swallow Bros., whose names are most familiarily, associated with the plantatio...
Mr. McGulloch on Cairns Mills. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 9 June 1897
Mr. McGuUoch ou Cairns Mills. When interviewed in Brisbane upon hia return from the North, Mr Mccul- loch spoke as follows :-" He next pro- ceeded to Cairns, where he inspected the Mulgrave Central Mill. This mill was splendidly built, and every bit up to modern requirements, having worked all last season without a hitch. The season there had been a very late one,. as the Mill .did not commence crushing until November, finishing up in March; 1434 tons of sugar were produced, and most of the1 cane was over two years old, and could not haye been left to the ensuing season. He noticed a very considerable increase in settlement there since his last visit, some fifteen months ago. The cane was in a very forward condition. The district was being visited hy a grass- hopper plague, however, which waa doing considerable harm to the young crops. Tl * directorate were tackling the plague with praiseworthy energy. Chinamen were engaged in catching the grasshoppers, receiving for them l jd. per ...

NOTES AND NOTICES. Morris-tubes for the five-inch gun on the beach are to be .furnished to thc Cairns Naval Brigade so that practice with this gun will shortly be available. Thc ammuni- tion nsetl will be the ordinary Martini Henri' cartridge. The whole of the Naval Corps in Queens- land are. t> bc aimed with the Jlurtini Metford rifle.

Now Guinea Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 June 1897
N«w-4taiMft Motet. - [BY 'OUR' SPECIAL' CORKMPONDKXT MR J. BROWNLEK.] Owing to the " Yaralla" being withdrawn from the New Guinea route, about a dozen miners, inducting yours truly, have been de- layed here for a fortnight. Although it was advertised in the local Beacon on the 20th May, that the " Yaralla's" trip was can- celled, yet passengers were booked through per " Arawatta" and "Yaralla" from Cairns on the same evening. An offer of your fare from Cooktown back is alt the satisfaction one can get from the Shipping Company for their brcaii of faith. What makes the delay more annoying to I our party is that we had the offer of a passage on the cutter ."Pirate" but preferred thc more comfortable and, supposedly, faster voyage by steamer. The little " Pirate" made a record trip of three and a half days from Cairns to Port Moresby, whilst we arc still here training for the New Guinea ranges and fever, on long beers and Kola juice. Several fiassengers from Westralia accepted the ro- ...
