The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 15. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884

FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 15. UPON looking at thc present financial position of Sonth Australia, we mnsfc certain, ly confess that we are: not struck with the same loyalty of dis- position towards the proposed great Jubilee Exhibition as are some of the metropolitan papers. To us the idea does not seem in good keeping with the colony at this carly age of its history. It is proposed to hold the exhibition in 1887, which will be tho 50th year of the colony's exist- ence. The estimated expenditure is laid down at £400,000, but we may safely say that before the opening day arrives, thc cost to the country will have been over half a million sterling. Now, when we come to Consider what a number of years have passed since the railway line ^from Port Darwin to Adelaide was ..first mooted, and the aihouut ¡pi ..attention that has been don^prred iipou it up to the present, we cahu'ot but place this Exhibition bubble down as the act of an unthoughtful and spendthrift Government. The difference ...

PEARL SHELL DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884

i PEARL SHELL DISCOVERY. Os Tuesday last the brigantine Sree Pas Sair, Captain Chippendale, arrived in Port Darwin from the Western Aus n_coa5j¿- -As .no-advices.had. been, .received of any such vessel being bound for here we were naturally anxious to find out the business of the stranger, and, upon enquiry, were informed that she was a pearling cruiser and intended searching our waters for shell The Sree Pas Sair is a vessel of between two and three hundred tons, is the property of Captain Chippendale, and has a com- plement of about 80 hands all told. These latter are nearly all natives of North. Borneo, and include some divers of no mean prétentions. On Wednes- day the captain procured the services of Mr. H. Howard to pilot him around the harbour and commenced at once the work of prospecting. However, upon calling the boats together at dusk, it was found that the day's work had been spent for only four pairs of shell. On Thursday, at low tide, four boats proceeded towards the Eas...

PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 15 February 1884

PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. A MEETING of the Port Darwin Camp, Grove Hill, and Yam Cn:ck branch of the Northern Territory Progress Asso- ciation, District D, was held at Port Darwin Camp on thc evening of thc 9th February. There were eleven members present. Mr. W. K. Griffiths occupied the chair. The Chairman, in opening the meeting called attention to the important nature of the business to be considered, which, he might safely say, was one of great interest and improtance to every Euro- pean in the Territory, and in the mining districts in particular. A lengthy dis- cussion then ensued, which resulted in Mr. M: D. Armstrong proposing -That in the opinion ot this meeting it is de- sirable to communicate with the South Australian Northern Territory Associ- ation with a view of becoming a branch ! of that Association.

OUR PEARL-SHELL FISHERY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 February 1884

OUR PEARL-SHELL FISHERY. SINCE our last issue the search for pearl- shell in our harbour has been prosecuted most vigorously by the divers on the brigantine Sree Pas Sair, and, we are pleased to say, with very great success. It is estimated now that a full three quarters of a ton have been raised since operations began eight clays ago, and when we take into consideration the in- convenience caused by the rough squally weather of the past few days, we cannot but consider this a highly satisfactory state of things. We mentioned last week that the shell was of good quality. It is now stated by Captain Chippendale and other ëxperienced judges that they have never before had the pleasure of handling such magnificent shells ; they open out a perfect picture to look at, and many weigh remarkably heavy. The Sree Pas Sair men have, so far, only worked in a spot laying between Shell Island and the Pioneer Reef ; but this morning the brigantine made a shift towards the entrance of the harbour ...

THE NEW TOWN AND COUNTRY BANK BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 February 1884

THE NEW TOWN AND COUNTRY BANK BUILDING. It is always a very pleasing task for us to write upon any matter that tends to show to advantage the rapid progressive strides which thc Territory is now mak- ing, and the above subject is undoubtedly ! a most fitting one in this respect. As it is now very little more than twelve months since the establishment of the Palmerston branch of the Town and Country Bank, one is naturally surprised to fiiid that the erection of such a mag- nificent building is readily assented to, but it does not take a cute observer to notice that branches are being estab- lished in all parts of the colony where a good " harvest " is likely to be reaped, and that the success of the branches can readily be accredited to the discrimin- ating gaze bf the Directors in appointing managers who will be the most likely to push the business ahead. But we arc wandering from the subject. Tile new structure is now being built on the hitherto vacant allotment oppo- site Messrs. ...

OPEN COLUMN. LETTEKS to thc Editor must bc couched in respectful and simple language and as concise as possible. In every case thc writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith.] OUR TIN MINES. To THE EDITOR. SIR,-In your issue of the 1st. instant the contents of a letter signed " One who knows him " called my attention to the fact that a little wholesome discussion on the subject ot the tm mines m the Northern Tcmtory would not be out of place, and might tend in a measure to open the eyes of the public to the huge farce that is now being enacted in con- nection with sonn», if not all, of them. " One who knows him " goes to an un- warrantable length when he states-to use his own words-that Mr. V. L. Solomon did more to develope the tin mines in the Mount Wells district than all the other people iu the Northern Territory put together. In what I have to say upon the subject I wish in no way to rob Mr. Solomon of anything that may bc due t...

The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 22. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 22 February 1884

^|tte f^oríU |tiir.lral¡;in. FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 22. -? SOME timo ago we drew the atten- tion of Mr. Warden Nash to the fact (in our opinion) that not one-half the amount due annually on miner's rights was ever collected. This time we desire to como nearer home, and leave mining matters ont of the question altogether. It is very well known that in thc laws by which the Territory is governed certain regu- lations for the issue of timber and other licenses aro mentioned, and that each and every one of these has a separate annual value. Seeing what a number of men have at various times been engaged in the pursuits incidental to these licenses, it has occurred to a correspondent to ask us the following question : .f Can you, through the columns of your paper, inform me how much money is annually collected in the Territory from licences of all kinds/' The question has puzzled us, for we do not remember to have ever seen in the revenue returns of the Terri- tory any statement in whic...
