A Public Wrong. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
A Public Wrong. Sin, — Mr. A. Lobban's letter in your last issue, in explanation of tjie eoratracfc given privately for wo''k at the Maclean publio.sob.ool, does not make the matter much clearer. If the work was of such an urgent character, why was it not completed before school re-opened after the Holidays .- Ana it tne urgency ot the work ana Mr. Lobban's projected departure from the dis trict for a time would not permit of tenders being called through the papers, there was no reason why other contractors in the town and district should not have been asked for private tenders. This could have been done without any delay, and the work would then have been done much cheaper and in a shorter time, — Yours, etc. CONTRACT0E.

From Start to Finish. The race between Johnny Bungaree's Carbine and Box of Tricks' Greased Lightning tjok place along River-streot last Friday evening. A good start wa3 effected, Bungarue, by a superb diaplay of horaamanship, taking hia nag to the front, and was never caught.

Mr. A. a Taylor. Some years ago no name loomed larger in our public life than that of A. G. Taylor. During recent years ho has suffered an almost complete effacement from public affairs. Now, however, the once familiar name again meets the eyes of the public ; a series of articles by its owner on 'The fetters of Federation' appearing in the Australian Stab. The articles are written in a rhapsodical and grandiloquent style, -which ehows that the writer has not lost the gift oi forceful eloquonce which made him an idol of the people in byegone years. His resurrection at the present timo probably betokens an inten tion of re-entering political life at nosi general election. The area aui yields of the principal cropa of Queensland during 1897 were : Maizo, 112,000 eores, 2,784,000 bushels ; wheat, nearly 54,000 acres, 812,000 bushels; sugar, 83,500 acres cane crushed for 105,000 tons sugar, against 66,600 aores cane for 100,000 tons sugar in 1896, The eoulling match arranged between Jam...
