CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 28 March 1890
CHAPTER VII. a ir is I:KKVS IS IIAI.K JUMO.- ST. London was fast filling. Thc Easter recess, that period nf repuso when, s» to speak, the great world draws breath bo iore lhi-il!y settling down to the multi- farious duties of tho sea-on had passed. Houses that previously had assumed an outward* appearance of dinginess and desertion, as indicated hy tho dust which lay thick on tho windows, had now been touched up with a coat of paint, and sweet-smelling dowers in boxes were ar- rayed from roof to basement. Every- thing in fact looked gay. Thc trees in tho parks were wearing their brightest lints, under which thc world of fashion rode, drove, or strolled, All the play- houses had opened their doors and sot forth their most enticing programmes to endeavor, if possible, to make thc vii ml mirari even laugh or cry. In this overdone age of everything those who provide amusement for /»/«*?'. London have indeed a hard task lo per- form. Play after play at theatres is con- demned to perditio...
A Policy for the N.T. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 28 March 1890
A Policv foi- thc iN .T. (BY E. CAKCS DKIFFIELD.) "WHILE our candidates arc stumping Um country, and thc date of thc elections is now definitely fixed, I would crave your permission to evolve a " policy for the N.T." which-if somewhat, incomplete-is at any rate original, and I trust it may recommend itself to one or oilier of the several candidates. I propose, in one word, to name that panacea for all our ills, which is to raise us from the .slough of despond into a flourishing healthy condi- tion, and that word is "Immigration!" - suitable immigration. In a prosperous population we would have thc solution of all our troubles. Now, as to means. Let thc Government advertise m all the lead- ing colonial papers, something after the style of Chaffey Bro?.' irrigation adver- tisements, that « c rr A ULK persons, on appli- cation at the various bureaus, would have an assisted passage to Palmerston, and a conditional land grant on reachiun t|iL.¡r destination. If married, the wife, and uuy...
In the Mining Districts. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 28 March 1890
In the Mining Districts. "IK the mining doesn't make the Territory nothing else ran !" This is un expression we hear on all sides, at all times, and with charming uncharitableness towards any other industry and all other prospects. Personally, T will neither deny the abso- luteness of the remark or agree with it in its entirety ; but I will say this, that at present lhere is nothing to keep tip and strengthen the business of the settlement but mining, and anyone who doubts me may have his sceptical objections removed by paying a visit to the mining centres, as [ have just done. A visit to Pine Creek at this time of the .year is not at all a weary undertaking, except, perhaps, as regards the actual travelling, which I must confess becomes exceedingly monotonous by the lime thc 110 miles are steamed over. I found the old settlement on the eve of busy times ; also, to use an aqueous ligure of speech, "up to its neck in water." It had been raining a kind of " even time" shower, and when...

Then the kindly spoken little medico, telling her what might bo required, hurried back to his patient, whilst Mrs. Fordyce, accompanied by Dalrymple, ftew along the road to the " Horse and Jockey," one of the two inns situated in the township. Tho mile which lay be- tween the course and the small town of Finhuurnti seemed tu her but only a few yu rds, ao eager was she to reach her destination. In a little under a quarter of an hour they had reached the entrance door of the hostelry. The house was ona of the old-fashioned sort, overgrown with pretty flowering crei pers. Presently, in answer to their knocking, a fresh-complexioned, stoutish built dame made her appearance, who, with distended eyes, listened to the fate- ful tale. "My gracious! tho poor lad!" and other expressions of a like nature she u tered now und then as sim heard Mrs. .b'ordyce. Of courae, anything ...

Two Bank Robberies. Queer Cases in the Experience of an American Bank Detective. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 28 March 1890
Two Bank Robberies. Queer fîîiscs in thc Experience of an American Bank Detective I ->--&lt;-? Foi fire years I held a queer place and , pursued a strange occupation. Four banks , in a large city made up a common puree and , employed me as a guardian. I was to look , after tho employé? when desired, see that j the watchmen were faithful, hang about during butinées hours, hunt up information regarding patrons, and make myself useful in other way?, I was an old detective, and almost every bank robber or swindler of that age was known to rae by sight. In those days the banks were poorly equipped com- pared to thc inventions now in use. Not one of thc four had a time lock, and, instead of chi led-sicel vaults, they had big eafes set in rccsescit or brick vaults, bank burglars could get into any safe in three or four hours, and bank cashiers weren't the shrewd sort you meet tc-day. I hadn't lilied my place a week before I made a discovery to amaze me. My il tat work had been t...

THE MAN-EATER. A Story of India. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 28 March 1890
THE MAN-EATER. A_ A Story of India. -» There were two entrances to the drawing room ; this imu.i bo borne in mind. The house itself was old-f&s'iion?d, a large and many p.aWoü on-, standing quita ebne and solitary in a spacious garden ; all the windows hnd been cloged sud the jîlousic-s shut and secured from tho outside ; tho tally-grass blinds ou the piazza had been rolled up and put away until another blazing morning called for tbtir refreshing bh.1.Iö. The Iccility was near that psrt of the delta called thc Sdrt.feibunde, through which the Ganges expands its branches as it approaches tho sea-a ltbyrinth of creeka and rivers, of jungle and stagnant wate?. Thc night was perfectly fine, but moonless ; there was a heavy dow rapidly falling, like misty rain, which, in hot countries, is a perfectly natural occurrence. I went into th-3 drawing-room by what might be called tie back doer, as it led into thc back drawing-room, end smaller one cf the two ; the other, a fsr larger ap...

LETTERS. The Chinese Question, TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 4 April 1890
LETTERS. LETTERS to thc Editor must be couchcp in respectful aud simple language and as coucise as possible. In every case the writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith.] The Chinese Question, TO THE EDITOR. SIE-A good deal of discussion occa- sionally takes place here concerning thc difficulty experienced in obtaining from Chinese diggers the fees due for miner's rights. It is a well-known fact that hun- dreds, if not thousands of Chinese, make their living by digging alone, and that a very small proportion of them contribute to the revenue of the Warden's office. The everlasting "no savee !" is no doubt very dispiriting to those whose duty it is to see that thc regulations of the Act are carried out, and it is perhaps hardly to be wondered at that greater exertions have not been made in this direction and more money collected. I have, however, a suggestion to make which 1 am sure, if acted upon, would alter to a great extent the e...
West Australian Pearling Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 4 April 1890
West Australian Pearling Notes. Mr. W. Banjer, once an officer in tho,,." ' local Customs, but now a pearler on the,,. North-west Coast, was a passenger l»jp the s.s. Otway. He reports that the" shelling industry is iu a healthy staie/; - aud that all the boats are doing well.; All told., he considers there must be at least 100 luggers engaged, and they have now fairly started the new. season. The boats are scattered along the coast as far round as Exmouth Gulf. Half of the Streeter boats are fishing at that place, and they are stated to be on a very good patch of shell. They obtained 100 cases of shell during the time that it took the other half of the fleet to get 20 or 30 cases in the Sound. Mr. F. Biddles continues to have good luck, and ¡lie is now the sole owner of four luggers and a schooner. At what is called the "Graveyard," near Derby, shell is found in large quantities, but the diving has to be done in from 19 to 24 fathoms, and this, is proving very fatal to the divers."...
Wyndham Notes. March 29th, 1890. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 4 April 1890
Wyndham Notes. (From our Correspondents). March 29th, 1890. Since my last communication our race meeting has been dated for th« 10th and 11th July. The programme for two days contains prizes amounting in all to £2G0, and if the season is any- thing like fair we expect to have a good meeting, from the number of horses that arc now in Kimberley alone. Judging from tlie appearance of the youngsters now brod by Messrs. Durack and Kil- foyle they ought to have some fast ones amongst them. They have added to their list of sires the well-known horse Lord Lisgar and another magnificent trotting stallion with some of the best American blood in him ; so that after this season we may expect to have something really good. Thu climate agrees so well with them that the stock is improving every s-ason. Mr. Kil- foyle informs me that he has some of Quamboueson's foals doing remarkably well, as also some of the Douljestrain stock coming on beyond expectations. From these circumstances and the ap- pe...

English & Foreign. London, April 3. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 4 April 1890
English fc Foreign. London, April 3. Captain Pilkington, of the 21st Hussars, has been appointed to take command of the military force sta- tioned at Perth, W.A. Ringmaster ran third for the Liverpool Cap. Great excitement occurred over the University boat race, which re- sulted in a win for the representa- tives of Oxford after a splendid struggle from start to finish. The victors won by barely a length. Time, 22m. 3s. The Liverpool Grand National was won by Mr. Mastermans Hex. The Californian Athletic Club has offered to raise the prizo for the proposed contest between Jackson and Sullivan to twenty thousand dollars. Owing to the disturbance which took place at Baltimore during their recent meeting, Sullivan now offers to meet Jackson again on any terms. The Liverpool Dock strike has completely collapsed, and the major- ity of the men have returned to their work. A Bill will probably shortly be introduced making it illegal for any person to sell colonial frozen meat as British, a ...

Telegraphic News. FROM ODS OWN CORRSPONDENT. Sonta Australia. Adelaide, April 3. The North Australian Territory Company have applied to tho Supreme Court for leave to appeal to the Privy Council against the order made on the 18th March, annulling the motion of the Chief Justice at the sitting of the Supreme Court in December last. The application was dismissed. The revenue for the last quarter shows a total of £734,908, or nearly a £150,000 in advance of the corres- ponding quarter of last year. A peculiar and daring robbery was committed hère on Monday last. A clerk in the employ of Mr. Proud, sharebroker, took two large parcels of notes to the Commercial Bank with the object of paying them in to his employer's credit. Whilst stand in at the counter, on which he had placed the parcels, a stranger sud* denly drew his attention to two notes lying on the floor. Upon the clerk stooping to pick them np, the stranger seized the roll of notes lying on the counter and bolted.: The parcels ...

Victoria. Melbourne, April 3. The Conference to consider the question of Australian defences com- mences its deliberations in this city at the end of the present month, Port Darwin will be a prominent feature in the programme. It is proposed to visit and inspect all the more important points included in- cluded in General Edward's Defence Scheme. The influenza epidemic is rapidly spreading throughout the city and suburbs. Seventy employees in the Postal Department are among the victims attacked, and over a hundred men on board H.M.S. Orlaudo. The Premier states that the four 1million loan will be placed on the London market at the earliest oppor- tunity. O'Connor, the seniler, received a warm welcome from rowing men on his arrival here from Sydney on Monday last. Henry George is still addressing enthusiastic meetings here.
New South Wales. Sydney, April 3. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 4 April 1890
New South Wales. Sydney, April 3. The sculling match between Mat tersou and McLean (both New South Welshmen) came off on the Parra- matta on Friday last, when the latter won easily by fully two hundred yards, Time, 22m. 18s. The result was a considerable surprise. Matter son admits that he was fairly de-, I feated. ! The opinion is now generally ex- pressed that although O'Connor may succeed in beating Kemp, he will encounter more than his match in either McLean or Stansbury. Deeble offers to back Stansbury against any man in the world for £500 a side.' The late heavy floods in various parts of the colony are now subsid- ing, after inflicting an immense amount of damage. The second batch of the Hon. J* White's horses left for England on Saturday. The address dedicated by the English sporting world to the parents of the late sculling champion of the world, has arrived. It bears 500 signatures.
In the Mining Districts. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 4 April 1890
Zn the Mining Districts. ! Leaving the Flora Bell Mine, and follow- ing the track to Burrundie, the route takes the traveller through the M'Kinlay and Mount Wells (N.T.) Tin Mining Company's property, and within a few feet of the present silver workings. The distance from Burrundie would be about six miles. It must seem somewhat anomalous that a TIN mining company should be mining for SILVER, as ia the case of the M'Kinlay and Mount Wells ; but I believe the company j originally supposed that their blocks were richer in tin than in the more valuable mineral. Hence the registration of the company under the name given above, which, to my mind, is peculiarly mislead- ing to anyone not well acquainted with the circumstance of the company having both tin and silver workings on their ground. t
Queensland. Brisbane, April 3. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 4 April 1890
Queensland. Brisbane, April 3. The relief fand for suffeiers by the floods has reached four thousand pounds. A terrific cyclone has occurred in the Ingham district, and the whole town is stated to. be utterly des- troyed. No details of the catastro- phe are yet to hand. The hurricane extended along the coast as far as Cardwell. Several coasting vessels have been wrecked. A wire , from : Rockhampton re- ; ports exceptionally heavy rains. The flood waters have submerged a por- tion of the town to a depth of four feet. Charters Towers has also suffered heavily from excessive rains and floods. Redden, the proprietor of Charters Towers and Townsville newspapers, was drowned whilst performing rescue work. Several other fatalities are re- ported. The mail train between herejand Sydney has stopped running pending repairs to the line. The Marine Board commences an inquiry into the Quetta disaster to- day.
