The Black Labor Question. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

The Slack Labor Question. [COMMUNICATED.] Now that people have had time to consider and weigh veil the proposals contained in Sir S. \V. Griffith's now notorious Manifesto, and bare overcome to some extent the star tled surprise with which it was at first re ceived, the scheme does not present that treacherous And hateful appearance that a section of the community would have us believe it does. Putting aside the political aspect of the case, and looking at it from an unprejudiced and impartial point of view, the ordinary common-sense observer will at once recog nise the self-saciificing patriotism displayed by Sir Samuel in making ibis oouragoous attempt to resuscitate what has threatened to become a defunct industry. The sugar in dustry most of necessity be strongly asso ciated with the progress of our colony, because on account of climatic influence no other part of Australia can produce sugar in sufficient quantity to compete with us, and bence we have an unsought monopoly of wha...

MUTTABURRA MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

MUTTABURRA MEMS. ODE correspondent writing on April 1 says: Muttaburra is feeling the effects of the general commercial depression, and business of all kinds is very dull. Numbers of men are daily passing through, hopelessly in quest of the work that does not exist; and but for the pit tance of flour, tea. and sugar given out bv the Police Magistrate, some of them would be in great straits for food. No surerproof could be had of the bad state the country is in than that so many of its working population are roaming about absolutely starving. Some of the tales told by these unfortunates are piti able in the extreme; weary tramps from one end of the country to the other and no means of support but wlint they could beg. When and what will be the end of this terrible state of affairs? I sec the prisoner Riley, who was tried for Ebor Creek Railway Bridge affair, was charged at the Police Court last week, and sentenced by the P. M. to two months in gaol for vagrancy. Inspector Aliearn and...

A CORRESPONDENT ON POLITICS AND SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

A CORRESPONDENT ON POLITICS AND SCHOOLS. A CORRESPONDENT writes us to this effect; " As the youngest member or last elected member of the House, Mr. Ryan ought to have had the compliment passed liim of being asked by the Government to move the address-in reply." The writer must have a very hazy notion of parliamentary procedure to suppose that a Ministry would ask one of the Opposi tion to move what is virtually a resolution in favor of all the measures embodied in the Governor's speech. The same correspondent referring to the necessitv for a State School at Longreach says, " Surely the Government are not going to boycott a large and influential dis trict like this bv departing from the universal course of establishing a school here, as in the most remote districts a State School is to be found in accordance with the Act passed for that purpose." Our correspondent ought to know that in Queensland as soon as a com munity subscribes one-fifth of the total sum required for the building...
