The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 30 October 1875

ROMA, SATUEDAY, OCTOBER 30, 187& The time is come when the truth most be in-: dignaatly spoken to those in authority respect ing the glaring and shamefulwants of this wide district. Although. it" is thoroughly known: by all our legislators that the; great stream of traffic (in live stock) flows through our midst to Victoria, although, in clearer phrase, they are aware that sheep and cattle from an area of enormous extent must travel through this region to the only paying mar ket ; yet it is apparently permitted to the pastoral tenants to fence in their runs in such a fashion as to check and embarrass . this traffic, which is a splendid and legitimate source of national wealth—legitimate as com pared with the casual and risky nature of mining enterprise and its too freqnently de ceptive (not to say ruinous) results. About sixty years ago the national poet of Ireland —the true poet is ever a prophet : three thousand yeans back the quick-souled Greek so named him—Thomas Mooke t...

THE RAILWAY FROM ROMA TO DALBY. (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 30 October 1875

RAILWAY FROM ROMA DALBY (From the Courier.) The prevalent rumour that the railway ex tension from Dalby to Roma is to be earned out on the small contract principle has, we believe, no foundation in fact. Nevertheless, the existence of the report is a proof that something has occurred to give rise to it. Whether the Government has seriously enter tained the idea, Or, as -is more likely, it has been supposed to be doing so by a few persons ■with wliora "the wish is -father to the thought," we cannot say ; but certain it is that some doubt has been .generally supposed to exist in the minds -of Ministers on this most important point. -Even on the - assump tion that there has been no swerving from the course announced when the authority for making the extension was obtained, it may still be useful to review the arguments bear ing upon this mode of railway construction, as illustrated by experience. Only one argument has been, Ur can^be, ad duced in favour of small contracts, and that is ...

PRODUCE STAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 30 October 1875

PRODUCE STAKES. [By Blacklock.] Some weeks ago I hazarded some few remarks on horse breeding in the Maranoa district. Since then various things have been talked of, brought forward, and passed by ciubs in the neighbourhood of the Downs, Brisbane, and Ipswich, but as yet nothing has been thought of in this behlnd-the-time district. In osher parts of the colony ".pfeople seem to take an interest in the well-being and prosperity of their districts, but the Maranoa seems as usual to drag its weary way along, unthought of and uncared for, and the grand unit "self" seems to be thuugut the only person worth considering in the unenviable Maranoa. I suggested that the" owners of sires should come forward and encourage people in the district to procure good mares, tothe ad vantage of ail concerned, but no move l as been made as yet towards getting up a Pi o duce Stakes. Some years hence we shall ail be regretting this—when we look round at various places, seeing our neighbours with fat stakes...
