Stanley Breakwater. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times and Agricultural and Mining Gazette — 24 December 1890
Stanley Breakwater, Stanley is at last within measurable dis- tance of its breakwater, and the visit of the Minister of Lands to Circular Head last week bids fair to be the inaugural ceremony of a new and better state of things in that long neglected and long suffering portion of Tas- mania. A less impressionable person than Mr. Pillinger could not fail to be-struck with the keen interest manifested by the large throng of residents at the meeting on Wednesday evening ; a throng which would have been much larger still had longer and more ex- tensive notice been given of the intention to hold a pubic meeting. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It was patent to even the most superficial observer that the statements made to the Minister by the various members of the deputation were examples of the fact that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh.' The utterances were emphatic--- &nbsp; with the emphnsis of conviction, earnes...
