A CRANE REQUIRED. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 4 November 1905
A CRANE REQUIRED. TO THE EDITOR. Bir,-l would point out a very urgent want at the Government goods shed. Pieces of machinery, wool presses, oases of galvanised icon, windmill parts, &c., are being constantly landed in Carnarvon. These are put into the trucks on the jetty from the ship's slings. On arrival at the goods shed these weighty and cumbersome goods have to be unloaded by the most primitive means, and similar means are used to load the settlers' teams. A travel ling crane and platform is urgently re quired. Visitors to our town are surprised that we have not petitioned the Govern ment ere this. In all the railway or goods shed? I have seen in different parts of Aus tralia, there has invariably been some crane, tackling, or other device for lifting and moving heavy weight*. The Govern ment derive a good revenue from our jetty and shed, about JS65G I think for current year, and for this amount should provide us with all necessary facilities. As the re laying of the tra...

CORRESPONDENCE. A COMPLAINT. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 11 November 1905
CORRESPONDENCE. A COMPLAINT. To THE EDITOR. SIB,-On Thursday evening I attended a concert in the Jubilee Hall and went with the intention of enjoying the various it ms on the programme, bat my enjoyment (as well as that of the majority of the people in the hall) was marred by the unseemly conduct of a set of larrikins at the rear of the hall. It is a disgraceful state of affairs when a performer, after a meritorious performance, has to descend into the body of the hall in order to check the Hooli ganism and interruptions from people who onght have known better. I write this in order to draw the attention of the police to the matter, ao that they may take steps to keep order at our entertainments earlier in the evening than they did on Thursday. .... I am , &c., CITIZEN. A miner named Frawley was buried alive at Baloug on Friday owing,,io the collapse of the hanging footwall in the mine in which he was employed. iVhen the body was recovered life was extinct.
