NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 26 March 1921
NOTES ANO NEWS. We have been unofficially informed that the complaints of a correspon- dent re inattention in connection with land office inquiries were unjus- tified. The Town Band's rendition at Parap on Tuesday night was much Appreciated. It will be well if that now live "Institution" can arrange to give similar displays weekly or oftener, in other convenient loca- tions. The administrative ignorance and incapacity displayed by the Govern- ment1 in connection with the adminis- tration of Justice in Darwin, should easily lead to a successful vote of censure ; that is, if politicians have not become wholly corrupt. Next Monday, Easter Monday, will I bc the fifth anniversary of the heroic effort of a smaU~but determined band ji Irish patriots to overthrow foreign lomination. Even German prisoners of war were treated as captives ; the Irish patriots were foully shot like I dogs. . .j . Hi i It is not improbable that one re- sult of the eye-opener given by the High Court will be thc p...

MINING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 26 March 1921
MINING NOTES. Some efficient work is being done on the Bridge Creek mining field, - some .95 miles out, and about four or five miles off .the railway line. The " Hazard" claim of 20 acres presents very encouraging prospects and is the property of Messrs. Reade, Smithran and Francis, who have been .working and developing there- on for the past two years. Of course this is an old field but it is not Half prospected. One crushing of 7 tons froni the "Hazard" claim was put through about 15 months ago, and yielded 29 dwts. to the ton. Some months later a parcel of 60 tons was treated and yielded 2 ozs of first class gold per ton. .Only 5 head of stamps arc being used out pi a batUry of io head solely in thc hands of thc Chinese Syndicate who owns the chief claim known as thc Bridge Creek Mine. The Chinese have exemption at present and ~. things are at a comparative stand- still, but the exemption will expire in a week or two..

THE RISK OF A RAMSHACKLE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 26 March 1921
THE RISK OP A RAMSHACKLE. In view of the serious allegations made by sundry critics, as to the state of disrepatr, decay and actual danger, of the jetty, a representative of the "Northern Standard" made a special visit of inspection on Thursday afternoon, in company with some experienced townsmen who can therefore bear witness to what we have to say on the matter. Our comment could be fairly condensed into one brief and emphatic statc ! ment -- that the use of thc jetty I as it now exists and in the way that j it has to be utilised, is not only a i cruel and iniquitous handicap upon ! the citizens of Darwin, but a positive I menace to the safety of all who have tb work on or about it. We have no I hesitation, in saying that in case of a ! serious accident and loss of life, the I Authorities would be criminally re- sponsible, more especially in view of i some facts which we must necessar I ily bring to their minds as full ad I mission of their cognisance of the I dangerous state of d...
