IMPROVEMENTS AT LONGREACH. Lonriieach lias wonderfully improved since wo saw it a month ago. Starting at the rail way gates we observed Mr. J.

AN EXTENSION OF LONGREACH RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892
AN EXTENSION OK LONG REACH RESERVE. WE are pleased to learn that our remarks of a few issues back regarding the inadequate net-s of the Lonpreacli reserve have borne fruit. Last week Mr. T. L. Forbes, of the Welcome Home Hotel, called a meeting of carriers, when the question of an increased area of country for a town reserve was discussed at length, It will be remembered that the Government were willing to increase the area of tlie reserve only on the. condition that the Aramac Divisional Hoard paid the cost of improvements on the re sumed land, consisting mainly of fencing, and which amounted to £375. This the Hoard re fused to do. Upon the appearance of our para graph carriers especially saw the force of the arguments tlien used, "and the meeting was held last week as stated. AB a result of the meeting the following )>etition was gent to the Hoard last Thursday, signed by thirty-six hona fuh carriers and all the business people of Longreach :-" To the Chairman of the Aramac Div...
JKRICHO PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892
JKRICHO PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. j Omi correspondent writes on March 12:- ; The Jericho Progress Association which litis been lying dormant for some time, has again come to life, a few new members having en- j tared its ranke. I trust that their efforts to secure one or two badly-needed wants and re-1 forms will meet with success. The position , this place occupies on the Central line being almost totally ignored by the various depart,- | inents, especially the Railway Commissioner?, the quantity of wool despatched from here being only lieaton by Rarcaldine, and I think we can rank next with goods traffic, and yet we are without a Money Order Office. Court of Petty Sessions, telegraph communication between here and lllarknll usually occupies about two days, the only satisfaction to be had being that railway business must not. be neg lected, and all public work must take a back seat whilst a rush is on with railway tele grams. I sincerely trust that the efforts of the Progress Associati...

THE IRONY OF FATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892
THE IRONY OF FATE. A T M 1 WKa A.J.m., L.ongrcacn, wriresme gionous victory that has been achieved by the Labor rarty'iii the liarcoo electorate, may be recog nised as the first trumpet blast. that will herald the overt lirow of the monopolistic jerieho; a victory tlip more pronounced when we consider the hundreds of names ruthlessly struck off the rolls. A few months back a prisoner in chains standing in the felon's dock; to-day the hon. member for the Barcoo. Truly, such is the irony of fate, another blast struck against our monstrous system ; another step towards social reform. How will it all end. Many are asking the question, but no voice comes'from the silence of the eternity. Are the others so utterly lost in their feverish race of wealth that they cannot hear the cries of the multi tude, would they blindly obstruct a move ment whose force they cannot analyse, whose depths they cannot gauge. Who is flic modern Canute among them who will stand on the political chores, and comm...

THE UNEMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 22 March 1892
THE UNEMPLOYED. THE number ot unemployed laborers in tins part of the country is steadily on the increase. The reason for this state of affairs is due in a great measure to the strike of last year, which delayed shearing at the early Blieds for three or four months, and consequently has shut all the sheds this year until the same period. No improvements beyond what are actually necessary ure being undertaken by the pastor alists, and that there is no doubt that the work available is not half sufficient for the number of men who are roaming about professing to look for work. The applications for assistance in liarcaldine township are very numerous, and several men have applied to the police magistrate for rations. Some of the men are assuming a rather determined attitude in this matter, and yesterday one man informed the |K>Iice magistrate that if the Government would not provide him with rations lie did not intend to starve, and lie would do something even if he had to go to gaol...

THE GOODS TRAIX. Orn corresjwndent at Longreacli writes: The arrival ol' tin: goods train at 11.25 p.m., or, more correctly stating, midnight, is causing serious inconvenience to the general public, and hardly any rest to the railway officials here. AH "t he hotels are closed long before the arrival of the train, and the unfortunate pas sengers have to hunt about to gain admittance into sonic of them; while tlie railway porters and station master are on daily from 5 a.111. to 1 a.m. the following morning in the getting away of the early train, attending to the load ing and unloading of goods during the day, and awaiting the late train.
