The Fate of Conway. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 14 August 1884

The Fate of Conway. THE mystery surrounding the disappearance of John Conway from McManus' selection on the Russell River has, to a certain extent, been cleared away by information obtained by Mr. Mackey, a selector on that river, which leaves but little doubt that the missing man as been, as suspected, murdered by the blacks. Mr. Mackey reports that he cap- tured a black boy, known to the settlers by the name of Sandy, who, after being detained by him for over a day, confessed that 'blackfellow Paddy killed white fellow,"   meaning Conway. An aboriginal called Paddy is known to have been working at times for Conway. On the information fur- nished by Sandy, Mr. Mackey, in company with another man and Sandy, proceeded to search for the body; but without success, and as the boy Sandy managed to make his escape from them, the chance of finding the body of the unfortunate man in the dense scrub that abounds in this part appears but a remote one. On Saturday Sub-Inspector Ca...

Oar Xeiîrïibours. [FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.]] HEKUEKTOX. August 8. THE first half of the week was showery, cold, and disagreeable ; fine weather, however, appears since to have set in. The matters contained in last week's cor- respondence with regard to mining have not changed. All the machines are working, and some of the mines are improving, not- ably the Bradlaugh, from which stone is being raised rapidly, which will be crushed at the Monarch Co's mill. As a matter of fact, tin mining is so far satisfactory, that no one appears t J complain, and there are no idle bauds about ; yet there is a general out- cry in r ference to the scarcity of the other sort of- '* tin," and verily there is great reason for it. If anything the settled popula' ion of Herberton and other towns is increasing, and that in the district generally does not decrease, where theu is the coin ? Thi-ï Scarcity is the reblar topic of convcr t-ation. yet, mark what.occurs : An unfortu- nate teamster gets crush...

Our Brisbane Letter. (TSOJt QUE OWN COBBESrONDENT.) Potmc.vr. matter j have been rather quiet here up to tho present time, one reason being that although Parliament has been in session for a month the measures dealt with have been of com- paratively slight importance, with the exception of the Triennial Parliament Hill, which has stuck fast in committee: and another that the Opposition has been without its leader. Mr. More- head is a very active and intelligent member, but the rank and file of his party do not seem to hare rallied round him as thev would round their old leader, and fte has been sitting at the head of comparatively empty benches.

THE word rush to a miner has about the: same effect that the word " M'llwraith " has «poa the Minister for "Works ; it unhinges him and he must go for it. Silverton has got into the brains of some of our miners, and they have left tin for the great silver country. Of all bipeds the miner is the most impulsive and itinerant. No matter how satisfactorily he may be employed, a " rush " tempts him to leave the certain work in hand, for something very uncertain, (jiving no heed to distance or difficulty ; he simply follows the crowd, meets disappoint- ment stoically, and is ready to be off to the next rash.

Queensland Sugar Industry. (ABSIDGED moa THE TBOPICAL PLANTEE.) j EVER since Messrs.

Murder of Conway by the Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 21 August 1884

Murder of Conway by the Blacks. All doubts as to the fate of John Conway, who has been missing from McManus selec- tion on the Russell River since the end of last month, are at length set at rest by the recovery of the dead body by the troopers under Sub-Inspector Carr. On Saturday last Sub-Inspector Carr returned to Cairns after an absence of six days, and reported   that he had found the remains of the missing man, and that from the marks on the body the deceased had evidently been stoned to death. After burying the remains he con- tinued his investigations to find the perpe- trators of the crime, and was able to trace the deed to four aboriginals who are well known, and who, as surmised, murdered the deceased man by stoning him. The four blacks concerned in the crime have fled to the hills, but are expected to he captured before long. The reason for the crime is partly traceable to revenge for treatment received at the hands of Conway, who had been cautioned by some ...
