A SEND OFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 10 May 1892

A SEND OFF. Otm Aramac correspondent writes :-Last Wednesday evening was one that will be long remembered by Mr. Gavin and iiis friends. Mr. Gavin, after being fourteen months in Aramac, in the employ of Sharwood & Com pany-now L. E. Tuckerman-was on the point of leaving here for Longreach to join Mr.. Sharwood, in whose interest he is going to work. During the evening songs, toasts and speeches were given, that made it a veiy pleasant one. After bidding Mr. Gavin adieu and wishing bim success in his new sphere, the company dispersed at about one o'clock on Thursday morning. Mr. Gavin went to ltarcal dine the same morning by Cobb & Company's coach, and with him was Mr. Dawbarn, who is managing the late James Cashion's store.

STOCK AND STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday, 10 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 10 May 1892

STOCK 9 STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday, 10 p.m. THE weather has slightly changed this week from clear cold days and nights to warm aud cloudy weather, with the wind varying from east to north-east. No rain has fallen. The only wool sent from Harcaldine to the coast, ?was 277 bales, of which 38 were from the Woolscouring Works, 30 from Barcaldine, and 159 from Coreena. No sheep were trucked. Seven bales of sheepskins from Aramac, 1 bale of kangaroo skinsfrom Lucas and Co., and 1 bale ditto from Mr. Savage were sent for ward. A MISTAKE was made in compiling list of sta tions stating: rotation of shearing, Caledonia being advertised as using machines instead of liana shears. As this has given rise to several applications for stands from machinc shearers, the manager (Mr. W. H. Cameron) desires the mistake to be rectified. OUR correspondent at Bowen Downs, writ ing on 3rd May, 1892, says :-On the 27th ult. Sir. Norton passed with 118 head of young bullB bred at Mount Cornish, a...

PUBLIC BUILDINGS AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 10 May 1892

PUBLIC BUILDINGS AT LONGHEACH. THE Court House at Longreach is hniBiica so far as the framework is conccnicd, and a very handsome building it will be. It is strange that the Government should liavecommenced with tliiB place and made no ltiovo in the direc tion of building police barracks and lockup, which are most badly wanted. For throe years there have been police at L«ongroacli, and yot even now they are inhabiting a partitioned-off room in a timber shop, -atrctcners,. saddle room, armoury, lockup, office of. clerk of petty sessions, and magisterial room all in one cloBe, stifling, hot room. Tjtere is no word of a post-office yot, and cvenmaiy is grumbling about the lax manner in much the post and telegraph work is conducHB. One correspon dent says; " I have two telegrams before me. One dated April 13 (in reply to one sent on the 11th), and delivered to me on the 14th.

THESE arc many ways of eluding a lav which is found to be inconvenient and annoy ing : but the method of avoiding tba Sunday liquor law, which we read, was suddenly discovered in Montreal, was certainly rather a novel one. The owner of a candy store, it seems, was arraigned in the Becordcr's Court on tlie charge of "selling liquors on a Sunday out of whisky corsets." The clerk of the court Was, not unnaturally, a little astonished at the latter part of the charge which the chief of police was asked to cxplain. He said that after vainly trying, for some months to find out how liquors were sold on Sundays in the French quarters of the town, one of bis men, whilst in a candy store, saw a customer pass the landlord fire cents. The proprietor then produced a small rubber tube from nnder his vest, one end of which the man put in his month, and sucked. The police officer pounced upon the proprietor and a search revealed that he wore a pair of tin coreets, with double space between the inne...

Sliaru-ood (in the chair), Ellis, Oould, Samuels, Knglisli, Mavers, Hewer, Cory, Cliffe, Roes, Forbes, and Peterson. It was mentioned that the Railway Commissioners had agreed to sup ply water to the town upon favorable terms. In the first place, if the Hoard engaged the ser vices of an engineer to take control of the pumping plant and pay his wages, keeping machinery in good order, the Commissioners would let the town have as much water as was required, provided the tank at the railway station was always kept full for the use of the railway department; and the Commissioners would make a pipe attachment to the tank and carry it outside the railway premises, where a stand pipe could be erected for delivery to water centres, or the Board could attach a main which would cariy the water into the town; or the Commissioners would supply the water at a charge of 2s. 6d...

A imKAKOOWN. THE poods train, winch is due at Barcaldmc daily at 7 p.m., broke down last Friday even ing about three miles from tlie station. The king bolt which attaches tlie bogie carriage to the main carriage mapped, anil the cowcatcher dropped down on tin1 rails.

LONGREACH SCHOOt. INSPECTOR HARUAP of the Education Depart ment arrived in Longreach last Saturday to report upon the application for a Echool to be built at Longreach. Mr. Harrap intended to try and muster the children on Monday. There seems to be little necessity for tliis, consider ing that the school is not required so much for the children already in Longreach as for those who will be there within twelve months, when the numerous private houses now going up in all directions arc tenanted by the families of the business men now in the town.

ARBOR DAY IN TOOWOOMBA. THE Chronicle, in describing the festivities of Arbor Day at Toowoomba, says that the great est celebration of the day must undoubtedly be credited to the South School. This is the school of which Mr. P. J. Macdermott, late of Borcaldine, is now head teacher. The princi pal attraction was the coronation of the May Queen and the Maypole dance, and these cere monies elicited the warmest encomiums from the numerous visitors who were present.

TO COHRESPONDEXTS. S. F. C. (Mount Leonard); Tlio Mitcliell Rabbit Hoard was elected on 18tli February last by stockowners at Barualdine. As it was considered desirable that members should be resident near the scene of contemplated opera tions, they were chosen from among station managers living near the border of the rabbit division.-The Mitcliell Hoard is distinct from tlie Warrego. Its southern boundary is by the railway line, from Morveu to Charleville, and thence up to and along the 26th parallel to the South Australian border. The head quarter* of the Warrego Hoard are at Charleville. " R.H." ^llfracombe). There has been a lot said and written lately on the great Kanaka question as you remark; but really it does not interest the people in this district. One party says let us have the kanakas and save the sugar industry, it means prosperity for all Queensland and all classes; the other party says perish tlio sugar industry rather than permit the kanaka to live in Queensland.

MORE ARTESIAN WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 10 May 1892

MORE ARTESIAN WATER. Ourt Aramac correspondent, writing on May 7, saj-s:-Another successful bore has been put down on Aramac station by Mr. James Brown. On Friday week last the first supply was tapped at a depth of 470 feet with a flow of about 60,000 gallons per day. That not being sufficient the well was put down to 850 feet, when the big supply was tapped, being about 2,000,000 gallons daily. The well was put down a further depth of 50 feet through water rock, making the total depth of well 900 feet. Mr. Urown is going to put down an other bore only five miles from the last, and anticipates a good flow, which it is to be hoped lie will get. Mr. A. R. lirown was notified last night that an artesian water supply had been tapped at a depth of about 1380 feet at Barenya. The news of the discovery of this water will lit' received with much pleasure by the pastoralists in that part of the country.
