The Western Champion. Vita sinc literis more est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 30 August 1879

Vita sine literis mers est. BLACKALL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 30. THE Queenslander has again taken up the gauntlet against the squatters, this time in answer to a letter from Mr. OSCAR DE SATGE, which is published in the same issue. This is the letter con- cerning which our correspondent tele- graphed us a fortnight ago. Mr. DE SATGE'S remarks are temperate and to the point. He tells us that " There is amongst the majority of western squatters no such feeling as hatred or antagonism to the selector; class feeling in any shape does not exist, at any rate as yet; long and often bitter experience of hard seasons and bad markets have taught the squatter that he may feel secure from any encroachment or spoliation, except- ing indeed, that which he may expect from successive Ministries that have not in ignorance fully grasped the position and difficulties of the far West." He furthermore says :-" The work of selec- tion on these vast Western plains must be one of time and trial-it cannot be forc...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 30 August 1879

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. FOUND DEAD.-An ancient gin, who for some months past has been camped at the rear of the old post office, was found dead last Sunday. The miserable creature had been for a long time in a most emaciated condition, and had only been kept alive with food supplied by some charitable per- sons. After death the body of the woman was dragged out upon the plain, where it was found by the police and buried. THE SCULLING CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD. The news that Trickett has re tained his championship against Laycock was received with almost general satisfaction here, the minority being among those who had backed Laycock to win. There is no doubt now that the money will be speedily raised to bring over the Canadian Champion, when a great contest may be cxpected. We hope to receive the full particulars of the race between Trickett and Laycock some time to-day, when they will immediately be made public. "THE CONVALESCENT." We stated in our issue of the 19th ultimo, that th...

BRISBANE. TUESDAY, August 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 30 August 1879

BRISBANE. TUESDAY, August 26.   In the Assembly yesterday Mr. Griffith denied that the Opposition had any intention of continuing obstruction. The original object of the action taken by them was to secure free discussion upon the loan vote, and they were now prepared to proceed with that discussion. The debate then proceeded regularly, and votes for the extensions of trunk lines, the completion of works already authorised, and for reconstruction of existing lines, amounting altogether to over a million and a-half of money, were carried. The division on the first-named was carried by 27 against 12. During the discussion yesterday evening the Premier said that the Southern Railway would be first extended to Mitchell, and then it was probable a deviation would be made to the southward. The plans and sections of the proposed extension and route would be presented to the House this Session. He also mentioned that no surveys had yet been made beyond Maranoa, but he thought th...

SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. BRISBANE, August 23,9.30 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 30 August 1879

SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. BRISBANE, August 23, 9.30 p.m. The Assembly sat till 10 o'clock to-day, when according to sessional order the Speaker left the chair announcing that the House would resume at 3 o'clock on Monday. The debate during the morning was on the whole moderate and rational. The principal point of objection raised by the Opposition was the want of information regarding the proposed railways. There is every probability that the same tactics will be resumed when the House meets on Monday. 6 p.m. The Assembly met this afternoon and adjourned till seven this evening, for the purpose of enabling the leader of the Opposi- tion to consult with his party.

A Sensible Speech. WE regret that the limited epacc at our com mand prevents us from publishing Mr.lumlcy Hill's fipoech on the no confidence debate in extento. We have extracted tlie most salient portions of it from Ifantard. After defend ing the railway policy of the Government, | and pointing out the defects in the Railway I Deserves Dili, be went on to my:-"The con stant cry of the Opposition throughout the debate has been, < How are you going to pay the interest on this loan?' He (Mr. Hill) would point out one way in which that could be done. In his own districts alone. North and South Grcgoiy, there was an area of 80,000,000 acres of land, which last year brought in & rental of £15,383, which at five per cent represented a capital of £807,660.
