The Broken Hill Water Famine. WATER THREEPENCE A GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 January 1892

Tfta Baton Sill Vator Fanrnxo. j WATER THREEPENCE A GLASS. THE water famine at Broken Hill is a calam itous matter. Some 25,000people are depend ing upon the daily supply brought to them by train from Mingary, South Australia, a dis tance of 50 miles, and when the tank there is exhausted they will have to send to Port Fine, about 300 miles distance. Nothing like this hasoccurred before in Australia, and yet-what is happening has long been foreseen. The municipal body has been warned times out of number what to expect, and the Gov ernment of New Soutli Wales has been waited upon by scores of deputations, who have travelled 1000 miles to lay facts before them. Broken Hill is situated in what is practically rainless country, its average fall being Gin. a year. Just before the silver-field was dis covered there had been a three years' drought, but since then there have been average and good years, and the people have lived on con tentedly, expecting to b6 always safe. No rain worth spea...

jk | Intern flramjjion. Vita sine literit mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, JANUARY 86,1892. THAT section of the colonists of Queensland who had selected each j successive terminus of the Central: Railway line for the locality of their business operations, may now be said ; to hare forsaken the shiftless, nomadic system of living which was forced upon them by the necessity of having to shift camp so often, and are now establishing themselves permanently in the different townships along the line, from Alpha Creek to the Thomp son River, selecting those sites which, after due consideration, appear to afford the best opportunity for doing business. These points on the railway line, or depots for the inland country, are seven in number, two of which are simply receiving places for the wool which, at certain seasons, is de livered there from the Barcaldine and Saltern Creek runs-at Saltern rail way station, and from Delta aud Evora runs at the Alice railway sta tion.

Personalities strictly excluded. IN REPLY TO DB. CUMMING. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,- In your issue of yesterday I notice a letter headed " Typhoid Fever-A Caution," and signed by Dr. Camming. He is a bold man who thinking himself without sin first costs the stone. Only three days ago a sick man arrived in the coach and died fifteen minutes after he was deposited in the Ara mac Hospital qp Sunday morning, and this man did not come from Longreach or Ilfra combe, where neither hospital nor nursing are available, but from Barcaldine, which possesses a large and well-managed hospital. This man was a resident of Barcaldine, had been ill for some time, and informed me just before be died that he came to the Aramac Hospital because the Doctor in Barcaldine told him to come he...

AFTERNOON [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 January 1892

Kiss SAVAGE and Master Hugh Savage left Barcaldine yesterday morning lor Sydney. Hughey is entered at Biverview College, a beautiful place on the Parramatta River, and probably the best Catholic seminary in Aus tralia. WE regret to hear that the Rev. Mr. Pike, of Barcaldine, is about to leave this town, he having been appointed to the more impor tant incumbency of Mackay. Unlike most Ministers of the Primitive Methodist con nexion, Mr. Pike has always taken a warm interest in the social life of the community, and his absence from Barcaldine will leave a gap not easily to be filled. THESE is no truth whatever in the rumor that Sir Arthur Palmer, K.C.M.Gh, is in partnership with Sir Patrick O'Reilly, K.O. P.S., in the new hotel the latter gentleman is about to build at Longreach. The O'Reilly, however, is not too proud to do business with a real Governor. When Sir Anthony Musgrave visited Barcaldine, Paddy was M.C. at the State Ball, and before pro ceedings commenced he was introduced...

Lost in the Bush. A FEARFUL DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 January 1892

Lost in the Bush. A FEARFUL DEATH. On Wednesday, the 6th inst (reports the Hughendaen Observer) a messenger came in to inform Mr. Ladbury, of Marathon Station, that an employee named Campbell, who had been sent out on the previous Monday to No. 3 Bore, had not arrived at his destination. Mr. Ladbury immediately sent a messenger to Tamworth Station to make inquiries, and at once on his return on Thursday, started out in search accompanied by his overseer, another white, and a black tracker provided with packhorses, water and other necessaries. Jack Campbell, an engineer employed on Marathon for the last two years, started on Monday the 4th inst. from the station to rig a pump at No. 2 Bore, about 20 miles South, there being a good track the whole distance. Three other men were also going out at the same time, but by some means he started by himself, two being just in front and the other behind.

THE LATE MR. F. R. MURPHY, M.L.A. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

THE LATE MR. F. R, MURPHY, M.L.A. THE Sarcoo Independent says;-Early on Sunday morning last a telegram was received in Blackall stating that Mr. F. R. Murpliy, M.L.A.., had died in Rockliampton early that morning. Although the telegrams published in our issue of Saturday last indicated that the sickness was of a veiy serious nature, the sad intelligence was. quite a shock to the towns people, and general regret and sympathy was expressed by persons of all shades of political opinion. Indeed, an air of mourning pervaded the town both on Sunday and Monday. Amongst the first to offer their condolences to the family of the deceased were the officers and brethren of the Blackall Masonic Lodge, of which Mr. Murpliv was one of the foundation members. The W.M. of the Lodge, Mr. I). Budge, has since received the following tele gram from Mr. A. E. Murphy:-"Lady Murphy wishes me to convey her deepest thanks to you all for your great sympathy in the loss of "lier dear son." On Tuesday several o...

SUDDEN DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

SUDDEN DEATH. THE many mates of Mr. John Armour, a member o£ the Carriers' Union, living in Bar caldine, will be sorry to hear that he died sud denly on Sunday last. He had been working during Saturday afternoon until he over exerted himself, and stopping then to take a large draught of water, he was suddenly Beized by cramp, which extended itself in stantaneously through all the nerves of the body. Dr. Cummins was at once called in, and did what he could to alleviate the suffer ings of the patient, but without avail, and the next morning he succumbed to syncope. De ceased was an unmarried man, and deservedly respected by the community. The funeral took place yesterday morning, and was the largest save one that has taken place in the town. On Friday morning deceased went to see Ids brother, who was dangerously ill and who was going home to St. Lawrence to die, away by train. "Good-bye, Jack," sorrowfully said the brother, " you won't see me again, for I feel I shall soon peg out." A...

ODDFELLOWSHIP AT BLACKALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

I ODDFELLOWSHIP AT BLACKALL. SAVS the Independent.--The annual return of the Loyal Barcoo Lodge, No. 10, of the Man chester Unity Independent Order of Oddfel lows, for the year 1891, just issued, show that the number of members now good on the boobs is 58.

The biggest item of expendi ture is, of course, that to the doctor and chemist, wliicli amounts to £17212s 8d, wliile the contributions have brought in £17714s. The Lodge is to be congratulated on its prosperity.

BARCALDINE RIFLE CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

BARCALMNE RIFLE CLUB. OWING principally to the exertions of Seigt. Palmer, sufficient members have been enroled to form a rifle club at Barcaldine. The first meeting will be held this evening, when ar rangements will probably be made to select site for rifle range and collect funds for pro viding targets, uiantalcts, &c. The great dif ficulty will consist in finding a suitable place not too far from the town. The nearest locality we know is from the corner of the racecourse paddock in the direction of Lagoon Creek, where there is a high natural bank, which would afford safety against the flight of bullets from erratically-elevated shooting. Mr. W. Chandler is the secretary of the club. Martini Henry rifles are supplied by the Government to members for £3 a-piece, and ammunition at cost price.

POLICE MATTERS AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

POLICE MATTERS AT LONGREACH. OWING no doubt to the bad state of the roads, Mr. Macarthur, P.M., had not paid his usual visit to Longreach this week, so we have no Police Court news to report. There are, however, tliree cases to comc before the Bench when he arrives ; Charles J. Henderin, on sus picion of causing the lire at M&neroo ; Patrick Dolan, summoned for careless use of fire on Evesham; and Larry Foley, for illegally using a horse. Several witnesses in the two first named cases have arrived in Longreach, and are much annoyed at having to lose tlieir time and neglect their avocations. Tills, however, is not likely to occur again, as two resident J.P.'s will be sworn in by the P.M. on his arrival.

THE FISH EPIDEMIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

THE FISH EPIDEMIC. Vl E near that about a fortnight ago the heaps of fish floating in the Long Waterhole near Longreach sunk all to the bottom, and the muaay water became suddenly as clear as crystal. This was produced probably by the ammonia liberated by the decay of the fish. The floods will do much towards restoring the river to its normal condition, but it will be a long time before people will care about seeing fish from the Thompson^ River on their break fast tables. j
