STATE OF POSTAL AFFAIRS AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 22 March 1892

STATE OK POSTAL AFFAIRS AT LONUKEACII. THE inhabitants of Longreach arc loud in their outcries against tlic arrangements made by the postal authorities for conducting the business of the posts and telegraphs at the town. The work at present is done by the station master and one oiierator, who, in ad dition, have all the railway work to attend to, including the receiving and delivery of goods. Tills work necessitates their rising at 5 a.m. every morning to despatch the first train, and they are kept up until 11 '30 ji.hi. or midnight, when the goods train arrives at the terminus. The whole business of soiling the mails and despatching messages is made doubly difficult by the small space in which the officials have to work, not larger than a horse box. Tho consequence is that the greatest inconvenience is experienced by the townspeople, and in ad dition to this the mails which arrive 011 Satur doyat5 p.m., close for Hockhampton the same evening at 8. It was understood that the buildin...

THE HALL AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 22 March 1892

THE HALL AT LOXGKEACH. THE opening of tlie new hall at Longreach takes place this evening. The occasion will be a ball in aid of the funds for the new hospital. The whole of tho proceeds will be given to the institution. It is sure to be well patronised. The floor is excellently made for dancing, and there is plenty of room for <t large company. The stage arrangements are very badly planned. The platform is fittod with dressing rooms, one on either side of it leaving a V-shaped space in front for stage, upon which no company could fit up its scenery and wings. The dressing rooms ought to have been built outside the hall at the back, and the proprietor will find that if the hall is much used for dancing a supper room will require to be added. As this might also be used for a sample room the initial expense would soon be repaid. In front of the building is a shop at present occupied by a jeweller, and Mr. F. Cory's offices. These were evidently intended first of all as a re...

HIBERNIAN BALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 22 March 1892

HIBERNIAN BALL. On Thursday evening last the Hibernian Society gave an invitation ball in Bancke's hall at Harcaldine. The number of guests who accepted the hospitality of the officers and brethren was very large. The hall had been very lavinlily decorated by Mr. O'Kourke and several other members of the Society, the ladies assisting in the arrangements. The building insido looked as bright as it was pos sible to make it appear, and when it was filled with the dancers, the gentlemen in their many liued regalia, and tho ladies in the brightest of evening toilettes, the scene was very animated and brilliant. There were not quite enough dancers of the male sex to fill up the pro grammes of the lady visitors, but there were enough couples 011 the floor to sometimes inconveniently crowd the dancers. On the stage a bar was temporarily constructed, and supper was laid in an ante room built at the back. There was a complete absence of starch from the proceedings, and everybody seemed throug...

THE LONGREACH BURIAL SCAXOAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 22 March 1892

THE LONGREACH BURIAL SCAXOAL. Last week our ropressentative who was at Longreach referred in this paper to what lie declared was the disgraceful way in which graves were prepared in the cemetery at Lonfneach, especially referring to those in which were interrwl the remains of the late Mrs. Uraliam and Mr. Dunn. In reply to this we have received two letters, one from Mr. James Lowe, undertaker, who desires it to lie known that he is not the person concerning whose action in connection with recent burials at Longreach t he public arc making complaint, and the other from Mr. J. V. Davies, architect, who in rather intemperate language abuses our representative and describes his report as a " libellous slander." Upon making further inquiries at Longreach we learn that the Sergeant of police at that place accompanied Mr. Davies, Mr. Graham, and Mr. Conmcc to the cemetery on Friday last. They earned with them a thin iron rod, 4ft. 4in. in length, which was used to test the depth of the cof...

BARCALDINE DOWNS SHEARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 22 March 1892

HARCALDIXE DOWNS SHEARING. Shkaiiim; is progressing satisfactorily at Harcaldine Downs. Thorn are fifty machine and one hand shearers on the board. About half the number arc free laborers, the best of those who worked here last season, and who have returned this year at their own expense. Among the Union shearers are some of tin; best in the country, including the boss ringer, Mr. Howe, who i's shearing for the first time this 6eason with the machines. As an ovidence that the men much prefer the machines to the hand shears, the solitary individual who is delving away with the blades has vainly offered to exchange with any of the others, but has not been able to effect a change. The quan tity of sheep being put through was about 5300 per day for the first week; but this tally, it is expected, would be increased as the men got into the way of handling the sheep. Last week they were on pome strong woaners with ten months flceco, and a better tally was ex pected. The work is being done ...

THE ALICE SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 29 March 1892

THE AMCE SETTLEMENT. WE omitted to mention last week that on the two public holidays in Barcaldine on the 17th and 18th March, the village settlement sent a dray into town and sold £7 10s. worth of water-melons. Some of them weighed »ip to 701bs. and were eagerly purchased at 5s. a.piece. In reply to Mr. Murray's remarks about the self-supporting character of the community we insert a letter from Mr. Sime, one of the members. We are sorry to hearthat Mr. T, J. Ryan, M.L.A., made certain remarks about the 'settlement in Rockhampton which were very far from being correct. He said said that" some of the settlement, men who were dam-making at Evora were discharged hy Mr. Kial] bemuse they voted for Mr. Myan.

TW0-1X-0NK CIKCL'S. iVIií. H.vmtis' circus h.is boen performing «luring rho week, doing splendid business upon each representation. The show is above the average of travelling tireuses, and numbers sixteen artists all told. Knch member appears to be up in his or her business, several of the members being above mediocrity, notably Mr. Hellman, in his clever balancing act.' He balances a ladder 1G feet in length on his soles, while a lad mounts it and goes through vali ons antics ; another line worthy nf commenda tion is the ventriloquism of Mr. Honi.

ANOTHER LEPER. Another European leper has been discovered at Rockhampton by Dr Voss. The patient, is a young man named Hemsworth who resides with his pareuts at Depot. Hill. He was for merly a letter carrier in the Post Ofiice.

STOCK & STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday, 10 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 29 March 1892

STOCK ® STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monda}', 10 p.m. THU weather continues hot and dryî with occasional cloud and electrical disturbances. There has been but little rain. It blew with almost hurricane force at Longreach on Tues day night, and about thirty points of rain fell. At Ilfracombe there was nearly au inch of rain, at Bimbah a similar quantity. At West land 120 points were recorded, and thc wind was so strong that Mr. Beauchamp's derrick was blown down, doing considerable damage, and, of course, delaying boring operations. THERE is very little loading going out at any of the depots on thc linc, and the carriers at Barcaldine have been idle so long that they must have lost a considerable amount of money this year. No doubt, much of the depression has been caused by carriers taking the advice of men whose only object was to create ill feeling between thc pastoralists and the Car riers' Union, who, up to thc time of thc strike liad worked amicably together. Wien they threw...

SCANDALOUS TREATMENT OF THE PUBLIC AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 29 March 1892

SCANDALOUS TREATMENT OF THE PUBLIC AT LONGREACH. TnE principal topic of conversai ion in Long reach, and tlif first cause, of complaint, is thc scandalous manner in which Mic business of the post and telegraph office is conducted at that place. We have already referred to the manner in which the station master and single operator are worked in having to attend to tlie> traffic business and all the work connected with thc consignment and delivery of goods, besides thc telegraphic business required on the railway. It is obvious, therefore, that the officials aro hard pressed to do their own work, which commences with Um despatch of tim daily goods train at 5 30 n.m. every morning, and" its return at ll.30 p.m. every night. In the first place the public telegrapluc services arc subordinated to the railway services, and urgent telegrams from other places to Long reach are sometimes delayed for hours because the operator is engaged" in other work. The post office is worse. Thc «iz-e o...

THE LONGREACH HOSPITAL BALL. A MALL was held in the new Longreach Hall nu Tuesday evening last, to celebrate the open ing nf tlie hall, thc proceeds to go towards thc building fund of the Longreach Hospital. The hall was kindly lent by the proprietor for the occasion, and most of thc expenses were de frayed by private persons ; so that thc hospital should reap almost all thc benefit from thc sale of tickets. Although the evening was very warm for dancing, the ball was well attended, about ninety persons being present, and with the good music supplied by Mr. Chandler (on the piano) and the Longreach Brass Hand under Mr. Reid (this being, by-the-hye, the band's first appearance in public), dancing was kept up with vigor until about half-past 3 o'clock on Wednesday morning. The floor of tho hall was in splendid order, and seemed to be tho roughly appreciated by the many dancers pre sent. Some very pretty dresses were worn by the ladies, amongst which may bc mentioned a fawn silk and pi...
