The Labor Question. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 June 1874

The Labor Question« TO THE EDITOR. Sir-It has hitherto Deen tne fashion in a great measure to as scribe the scarcity of labor to the unhealthiness of the climate, and a good deal of bosh has been published to that effect But there have been causes operating greater than any alleged unhealthiness of the Northern Territory, or the inability of the Europeans to work in the tropics. First, in many instances inaccuracy or uncertainty ol payment; second, the news of a good alluvial held ; and in an adjacent province (jr, as you may say, next door) has attracted many away in search of fresh fields and pastures new. There are, I admit, three months in the year, October, November, December, that it would be injudicious to change men from underground to the sur- face, and such changes at ?ny time are unavoidable, for the balance of the year in the country of the mines, I see no reason that white men cannot work as well as in any other country. Another cause of the im f)ressio'n of the unfitne...

Palmerston District Council. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 June 1874

Palmerston District Council. The following telegram has been received from the Commissioner of Crown Lands by the Government Resident, who has kindly handed it to us for publication:-"Yesterday's Gazette contains proclamation District Palmerston under Act 10, of 1858, precisely as prayed for. Inform memorialists. Mr. Anthony Trollope, speaking of the future of North Australia, says :-" I do not believe that I shall live to see a railway made from Adelaide to Port Darwin, or even that younger men than I will do so. The greatness of many accomplished enterprises is now teaching me to believe that every- thing is possible ; and they who are sanguine are falling into the error-directly opposite to that of our grandfathers-of thinking that nothing is too hard to be accomplished. I cannot believe in the expenditure of £10,000,000 on the construction of a railway which is to run through a desert to nowhere. But I do believe in the goldfields and pas- tures of Fort Darwin, and in the beauti...

Bonuses. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 June 1874

Bonuses. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I notice in the telegrams in vour last week's issue that the Ade^ laide Government can be just some- times by granting, as they have done, £1,500 to Major Warburton and party, which 1 have no doubt they well deserve ; still I fail to see why they could not be equally generous to Millner and party, who, in all probability were the means of saving human life. But to all appearances West seems a more profitabel point of the compass than North to follow. I am, Sir. &c, JUSTICE.

Port Essington. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 June 1874

Port Essington. TO THE EDITOB. Sir-My opinion of the cool re- ception of the Victoria boat party by the blacks at Port Essington was owing to the presence of Robinson ; and not to any promises made them by the officers or the gentleman forming the search party in the Flying Clond. On one occasion when I visited the blacks' camp, Mr. Sinclair said to me, " The blacks are very good to us, and I will send them many presents from Port Darwin." All this time the head chief, Jack Davis, was sitting on the grass between the two white men, and within two feet of them. The chief understands English well, and listened to the promises as they fell from the lips of Mr. Sinclair. The chief, looking at me, said, " I believe Sinclair speaks the truth, saying he will tell Captain Douglas to bring these presents, and his orders will be obeyed," at the same time calling my attention to Sinclair's sores, saying, " I am healing them, and I and my wife are feeding them," pointing to the two white men.

Mining Industry. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 June 1874

Minino; Industry. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I am sorry to trespass on your valuable space, out a word or two on the present system of managing the mining industry of this country would be useful. In the first place we want a more simple code of mining rules, the present code being so large, &c. Any Victorian or New Zealand miner would wonder to see such a large hook, and so much reading matter. It is the quantity of news that it contains from our friends in adelaide that makes it so difficult to understand... There is so much of " whereas " and " herein - before-mentioned " style about it. Evidently lawyers have had the prin- cipal management in getting them up. I expect the Government officials in the Territory have had some difficulty in interpretation. The present rules in force to a great extent are totally unfit for the re- quirements ot the Territory. What the miner wants are rules that he can read and understand. I have known men who would learn a code of mining rules by hea...

Mining Labor. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 12 June 1874

Mininer Labor. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-I have never courted the desire to rush into print, but I cannot allow a letter signed "North" which appeared in your last issue to pass by without comment, though at all times the communications of anonymous writers might be left without a reply. I am inclined to think that letter-writing is not " North's " forte, and would advise him in future to try woodsplitting. It being the eve of the departure of the mail I must content myself with referring you to the following extract from my report per Gothen- burg, which will be a sufficient reply to " North's " letter : " The receipt of the telegram inti- mating that the Government had un- dertaken to send a number oí coolies was as welcome news to myself and others as the information vtas to Wellington at "Waterloo that Blucher was approaching with his army. Although I am ignorant at present as to the terms on which they are to to be hired by the various Mining Companies, and the class of coolies to be ...

LAW COURTS. POLICE COURT-PALMERSON. Friday, June Ö. (Before Mr. Price, S.M.) Mr. Spada, of the Smirh-street billiard-rooms, was charged by the police with having sold intoxicating liquors without being' in possession of a license. Mr. Smith appeared for the 4 defen- dant, and Sergeant Badman conducted the case on the part of the police. There were two informations, the first being laid on the 26th May, when two constables, Tasker and Miller, went to defendant's billiard room, and one of them called for lime juice, or "strong" limejuice, and tue defendant then served them with a drink containing brandy. The two constables swore positively as io the brandy, and called a witness, who also stated that the drink he tasted was like bad brandy, though he admitted that defendant claimed that particular nobbler as his own drink, and desired witness to put it down. Mr. Smith, for the defence, called witnesses who stated that the liquors served by the defendant were not intoxicating drinks, bu...
