COLONEL BAKER'S SENTENCE. (From the New York Herald. Auaust 22.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 November 1875

COLONEL BAKER'S SENTENCE. i {From ihe N&D York Herald. Auaust £2.) 1 The -English journals are discussing the sen tence imposed upon Colonel ValSntine Baker, of the ^English army, for an assault upon a young laidy travelling in a railway carriage. - That pro digious demagogue, Dr. Kenealy, brought the matter before Parliament, and censured the judge for Hie leniency .of his .sentence, intimat ing that this arose from the fact that Colonel Baker iad aristocratic connections, and was be friended by people inhigh places. The sentence, as-pur readers know, was a year's imprisonment without hard' labour, and a fine of £500. This constant cry of "aristocracy" and u aristocratic i influence"; is becoming dangerous to English i politics. . We' ffiinlr that in the casebf Colonel Baker there could be nothing more unjust. So far as the law is concerned, its administration was prompt, impartial, and admirable; and the sentence, severe as it was, is the smallest part of the Colbnel's pun...

AN AMERICAN VENDETTA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 November 1875

AIT AMERICAN VENDETTA. There is, says the New York, Herald the most TH^ent iieed of a hangman in Williamson county, Illinois, and of a Governor in Springfield •with decision of character enough to have the laws so enforced tliat "the hangman shall have something to do. The Russell-Bulliner feud is a disgrace to the whole State of Illinois. . The quarrel be tween theseitwo families and their clans com menced about two years ago, growing out ^ of sometrivial cause, and has been kept up with such murderous violence that already no less, than twenty-seven murders have grown out of it. Like all these vendettas, it has been a war be?: tween cowardlv midnight assasins, who liave not courage enough to meet each other like men: in fair open daylight fight. A favourite mode is to call the antagonist to a door or winddw andthen shoot him before he can arm himself.' -One man was assassinated as he was riding home from church, by his enemies, hidden behind a fence. Another man was shot while plo...

THE BARCOO—LANSDOWN STATION. (From the Town and Country Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 November 1875

THE BARCOO—LANSDOWN STATION. (From, the Town and Country Journal.) Lansdown is one of the principal stations in Cen tral Queensland. It has a history which is as sad as interesting, and as instructive as that of any I have had to describe. In the course of this ac count it will appear that Lmsdown is so distant, and so large, that it can only be properly worked by means of a large capital The history of this station affords a lesson of the' danger of attempt ing to work a station of such magnitude on inade quate means. I learnt the history of Lansdown from one who profited by the lesson taught. He told me of the taking up of the station by a gentle man with whom were two partners. Of the for mation of the station; of the losses by drought, by native dogs, and by travelling ; he described how they braved that terrible drought of 1868, their having then spent large sums in fencing, and larger sums in dam making. Then there were tales of fearful floods, the washing away of the dams whi...

ODD NOTES. [By A BOHEMIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 20 November 1875

ODD NOTES. [By a Bohemian.] • New South Wales has set the example of adopt 1 ing the late Sir Charles Wheatstone's automatic ; system of transmitting messages by telegraph, and I sincerely hope that Queensland will follow suit. : It would be a graceful thing to do. The system i may not be as good as the one how followed. I believe it is pretty generally admitted by practical men that it is not—what is gained in time is lost in accuracy, and the new instrument is subject to " fits" during the paroxysms of which it is utterly beyond control. But this has nothing to do with the question of adopting it. Sir Charles was a great electrician, and the invention of this instru ment was his last discovery. It has been tried in England and given up as a failure, so that there are a large number of " automatics" to be had a " real bargain" as the drapers say. Now if Austra lian telegraph operators could make the thing answer, see what a victory they would achieve! They could crow over the teleg...

TAMBO. [from oue own correspondent.] bhearmg has been, going on rapidly during the last four weeks, the weather having been ail that could be desired. Yesterday, however, we were favoured with a thunderstorm, and there appears every prospect of rain at the present time. Our enterprising townsman Mr. Bilton has this week opened his new and commodious store. It is really an ornament to the town, and it is to be hoped that its attractions in the eyes of travellers will recoup Mr. Bilton for his spirited outlay. We are at present enjoying a visit from Mr. A. Kipling, the well-known and scientific photo grapher, whose life-like delineations of faces and scenery have made his productions celebrated wherever he has visited. Yesterday a carrier was mulcted in the sum of £2 for carrying without a license. It is to be hoped his case will be a warning to others.

®Ij£ Mista - $OMA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1875, A case in our Police Court last week has brought .the working of the Brands Act pro minently under our notice, and has led to a careful 'and lengthened perusal of' it by us. We alluded in a short paragraph last week ; to the occurrence, .and then stated that we i thought the case brought against the defend vant seemed rather unnecessary and beyond ; the mark aimed at in •passing the measure. The result of our perusal of the Act Leads us j to the conclusion that the Queensland Brands "Act has been framed with very great care, and that a laige amount of information was br£>iight to .bear on the subject, and also that advantage was taken of the experience of the worsting ;of a similar Act in iNew South Wales, occasion having been taken to profit by .<exxDrs contained in that measure, and also •ofthjose clauses «which from experience were found'not to work well and to be unnecessary. - Tq-ais it seems that our Act, if it has ...

dJllby. I [rBOM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT. ] November 9. Last Tuesday evening, at the Court-house, the ^ monthly meeting of the vestry of the Church of England was held % the Rev. R. Mahalm being in the chair. Plans of a new church for Dalby "had been received from the.architect, but, upon careful examination ofthem, it was found they were not in accordance with the'previously-con veyed wishes to him of the church committee. It was unanimously resolved to retnrn the plans, and, -though it engendered vexatious delay, to get new ones rather than adopt those they did not approve of. In accordance with a resolution passed at the meeting, the Rev. R. Mahalm visited Toowoomba yesterday to interview the architect (Mr. Poweill)relative to preparing plans for a church more in accordance with the wishes of the congregation. The meeting of the oommitteeofthe Jf. D.-J. Club, to receive the report of the collectors for the Christmas races, was held at the Royal on Wednesday evening; Mr. J. P. Wilkie...
