Young KAY, banker, and Way KAY, croupier, were to-day fined £20 each for conducting a common gaming-house, and twenty-two other Chinese men were fined £1 each for being found in a common gambling-house.

Sydney, April 3
At his residence at Cooerwill, near Lithgow, Mr Andrew BROWN, J.P., died yesterday evening, aged 96 years. The deceased came to this colony over seventy years ago, and devoted a considerable portion of his life to pastoral pursuits. In 1837 he attended the first land sale in Melbourne, and bought several allotments.

At the Central Criminal Court to-day the trial of Charles MONTGOMERY and Thomas WILLIAMS, for feloniously assaulting Constable BOWDEN with intent to murder; was conducted before Justice STEPHEN. The two men were principals in the recent attempt to break into the Union Company's office in Bridge-street, and while endeavouring to escape an attempt was made to arrest them by the police, five of whom felled by frightful blows inflicted by jemmies carried by the accused. A verdict of " guilty " was returned, with a recommendation to mercy in the case of WILLIAMS. Both men were sentenced to death, his Honour holding out no hopes of mercy. MONTGOMERY was unmoved, but WILLIAMS appeared to feel his position very keenly.

Social Gossip

This will be difficult because the paper is very damaged and torn, but there are a few hints as to the timing. The paper also contains some good info so didn't want to leave it out. Perhaps someone will be able to look at the dates of the wedding mentioned and send to the List, that way we'll know what year it is at least. Also, there is a mention of " Now that the sharp autumn air is already chafing", and another " Sir G Le HUNTE, Governor of South Australia, will arrive in Brisbane at Easter time," suggests that the paper is dated around March/ April of 1905/6.

Update 12 September 2009

In http://addison.homedns.org/transcription/queenslander/transcripts /page7.html you seek help in identifying the date of transcripts taken from the Queenslander Brisbane “dated after 1904”.

I was recently in Normanton and came across the grave of Capt H C Myles who died on 11 April 1905.  Wondering who he was I did a  Google search for Capt Myles came up with your page which notes that “Our Normanton correspondent wired on Tuesday--Captain MYLES, Harbour Master, died this morning at Karumba.”  The 11th of April 1905 was a Tuesday which dates the Queenslander newspaper to sometime that week.

This next entry is very long so I will shorten it with the basic facts.
The Late MR F A BLACKMAN At "The Haven," Bulimba, on Thursday, 18th January, 1906, there passed away to his rest one of the old pioneers of Queensland, Mr Frederick Archibald BLACKMAN, late of Warro and Barwon Park Stations. Mr BLACKMAN'S father was Mr John BLACKMAN, a London merchant, who came to Australia in 1834 with the intention of engaging in pastoral pursuits; but, being no doubt deterred by the many disabilities that Mrs DANNER, Mysterton, Mundingburrah, squatters endured in those days, he finally settled in Sydney, and entered business as an auctioneer and land agent. F A BLACKMAN was born in Sydney on 8th August, 1835, and was consequently in his 71st year when he died. A few years after his fathers death which took place in 1846, he came to Queensland with an elder brother named Robert and the two joined the late Mr William LANDSBOROUGH in his work of exploration. After a short time the brothers took up country in the Port Curtis district, and formed a station which they named "Warro" after a mountain in the vicinity, which the blacks new by that name. Their licence to occupy was granted in 1855. In 1861 the brothers dissolved partnership, Robert taking the sheep and founding a station called Rookward, in the Leichhardt district, while F A BLACKMAN remained at Warro with the cattle. Near neighbour was Hon. Albert NORTON, now of Brisbane, but at that time owner of Rodds Bay Station, Port Curtis. Mr BLACKMAN took a keen interest in matters of natural history. He forwarded many specimens to the naturalist Mr KREFFT, to the Sydney and other museums. One of MR BLACKMANS inventions--namely, was the lever bail, is almost universally used on stations for branding and other purposes. About 1874 Mr. BLACKMAN removed with his wife and family of ten children to Hobart with the view of giving the children the advantage of a change of climate as well as facilities for education. During the six years he was in Tasmania he lived at Sandy Bay, where two more children were born, completing a family of seven sons and five daughters, all of whom survive. In 1881 Mr BLACKMAN returned to Queensland and took up his residence at the Hamilton, in which locality he has resided almost continuously up to his death. About 1882 Mr BLACKMAN thought it advisable to acquire Barwon Park station in the leighhardt district, from Mr WILKINSON, and he stocked the property with cattle removed from Warro where the numbers had fully overtaken the carrying capacity of the run. After the severe drought of 1902 Warro was sold, but Mr H. BLACKMAN still owns the original homestead at Warro After coming to Brisbane to reside, Mr BLACKMAN took a keen interest in everything that tended to the advancement of the pastoral interest. Mr BLACKMAN was instrumental in founding the Queensland Stockbreeders' and Graziers' Association, an institution with which he was closely associated as hon. secretary and treasurer. Besides his skill as a mechanic, Mr BLACKMAN contributed freely to the newspapers on current topics of the day, and in addition wrote several stories which were published in serial form in some of the Southern papers. He also wrote a book entitled "Adventures in Queensland," under the non-de-plume of " Australia,".

Mr G H SHILLITO, received a cable message on Friday {writes our Ipswich correspondent} from his daughter Nellie, who left by steamer Persic at the beginning of October, stating that she had arrived safely at Durban, and was married on October 31 in the Congregational Church, Durban, by the Rev Mr WILLIAMS, to Mr C H A SPENCER, postmaster at Balfour, Transvaal, South Africa.

The death took place at Bowen on the 28th October of the Hon William PETTIGREW late member of the Legislative Council of Queensland, and founder of the late Brisbane saw-mill, the pioneer mill of Queensland. The deceased had reached the ripe old age of 81 years, and death followed on an attack of pneumonia. he had latterly been living at the residence of his daughter, Mrs H.W. DAVIS, Bank of N S W , Bowen.

The death is announced of Mr John Dudley DUNLOP, of Corinda, aged 37. The deceased was a native of the district, and a son of two of the oldest surviving pioneers. For sometime he was engaged in the Railway Department as a carpenter, and while employed in making repairs at Ipswich the scaffold upon which he was depending gave way and he fell, receiving serious injuries to his head. He was conveyed to the Ipswich Hospital, and eventually recovered, but shortly afterwards contracted a very severe attack of dengue fever. He leaves a widow and young family, for whom the residents of the district have expressed deep sympathy.

The death of Mr Thomas KELLAWAY, an old North Queensland resident, took place at St Helen's Private Hospital last week. Mr KELLAWAY was a native of Tasmania, and came from an old family in the South of England, which gave to the England of the pre-Empire days gallant souls who won distinction on sea and land. He left Tasmania for Australia when a lad, and entered the service of the Bank of New South Wales. In the late seventies he was stationed at Cooktown, and was there a prominent figure in all athletic movements, being a young fellow of splendid physique. He opened branches of the Bank of New South Wales at various Northern towns, and was the pioneer of the institution at Croydon. Of late years Mr KELLAWAY has carried on business as an assayer, and was associated with many of the mining developments in Croydon. Recently he came to Brisbane for medical treatment, and entered St. Helen's, where Dr. JACKSON soon discovered that the case offered little hope. The deceased was a brother of Mr E B KELLAWAY of this city, and though known to but few in Brisbane, leaves a wide circle of warm friends in the far North.
