    Lime, Cement and plaster stores of James Campbell, Brisbane, Queensland ca. 1865
    The firm of James Campbell (later to become James Campbell and Sons) was a building supplies business established in 1854. The business specialised in the retailing of lime, cement, plaster, paints and timber, and operated saw and planing mills, plantations, lime works and pottery kilns in a number of locations in southeast Queensland, as well as Campbell's wharf and warehouse at Creek Street, Brisbane, and a substantial fleet of freight vessels. The building in the image (probably in Creek Street, Brisbane) is a two storey timber building with a wide verandah on the upper level.

    DETENTION OF PROPERTY. — Stratford v. Campbell. Charles Stratford summoned James Campbell, plasterer, of Charlotte-street, for detaining a lime bag, which he claimed. The plaintiff had retained Mr. J. J., Wilson for the prosecution. The prisoner defended himself. The substance of the evidence is as follows :— Plaintiff is a limeburner on Breakfast Creek, and the defendant supplies lime to plasterers, &c. Passing Campbell's place one day, plaintiff saw a bag lying in the yard with his brand, C.S.S., upon it ; claimed it as his own, but defendant refused to give it up. Defendant ad- mitted that the bag was on the ground in his yard, but argued that it was customary either to return the bags sent out with lime, or to replace them with others, or, lastly, to pay for those not replaced by the purchasers of lime ; hence the prosecutor's remedy was not to claim a bag, because his brand appeared on it, but simply to charge his customer with it as not returned or replaced.
    No order was made, and the case was dismissed.

    ...... His Royal Highness was met by the Highlanders, who conducted him to the centre of the enclosure, where he was received by the Hon. the Speaker, M.L.A.; the Hon. Mr. Mac alister, M.L.A. ; Mr. J. Douglas, M.L.A.; and Mr. G. Raff. The Speaker presented the fol lowing address to His Royal Highness : — "To His Royal Highness Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh. " May it please Your Royal Highness,—We, the Scottish residents of Queensland, give you hearty welcome to our adopted country. "As Duke of Edinburgh, we hail with pleas ure your presence among us, and beg to express, through your Royal Highness, our loyal at tachment to the Throne and person of Her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen, and to ac- knowledge our sense of the honor so long con ferred on our native land by Her Majesty, the late lamented Prince Consort, and the Royal Family. " This auspicious visit to these distant portions of the British Dominions must impress your Royal Highness with a sense of their vast and growing importance, and it cannot fail to strengthen the attachment which ought ever to exist between the mother country and her Aus tralian Dependencies. " We trust that, during this short visit, your Royal Highness may see evident indications of the future greatness of this the youngest of the Australian group of colonies; and {that your reminiscences of Queensland may be as pleasant as our wishes for the happiness of your Royal Highness are sincere.—Signed on behalf of the Soots of Queensland. " GILBERT ELIOTT." The address was handsomely got up, written and illuminated on vellum, with a very striking border of Royal Stuart tartan. Worked into the top border were the arms and motto of the Duke of Edinburgh; at the sides, Scottish lion rampant, the Queensland Arms, and the motto " Welcome A.E.A.;" the bottom included the star of St. Andrew and other devices. The whole reflects great credit on Mr. H. Hoghton. His Royal Highness was then conducted to the box reserved for the Royal and Vice-regal party. The Prince remained about three quarters of on hour, during which time he watched the progress of the games with much interest. At his departure he was again most enthusiastically cheered. A tolerably long programme had been prepared by the committee, and a good portion of it consisted of pipe music and dancing. Unfortunately, however, the games were com menced so late that nothing like the whole of the sports arranged to have come off could be got over in time. Under these circumstances, several of the most interesting exhibitions of strength and skill were taken indiscriminately, without attempting to adhere strictly to the printed programme. The games terminated shortly after 6 o'clock. The committee who had charge of the arrangements were Messrs. William Pettigrew, James Campbell, Angus Mackay, John Menzies, William Keith, John Fraser, Simon Fraser, Dr. Cumming, Messrs. John M'Callum, John Fraser, jun., John Burns, Aleaxnder Stewart (hon. treasurer), and Mr. James Duncan (hon. secretary). Mr. J. Fraser and Mr. T. Fraser were the judges of the way in which the bag-pipe contests were carried on. During the afternoon, two little boys, the sons of Messrs. W. and T. Fraser, danced several times in a manner that delighted and surprised everybody. It is certainly astonishing how these little boys could have acquired such pro ficiency in dancing, at so early an age. ...............

    James as subcontractor to Mr. John Petrie, and seeing the Duke plant a cook pine.
    The Masonic address to Prince Alfred, and the reply of His Royal Highness, will be read this evenmg at the Masonic Hall.
    On Saturday morning, 29th ult., at about 11 o'clock, His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, accompanied by his usual suite and His Excellency the Acting-Governor (Colonel O'Connell), Mrs. O'Connell, Miss Mackenzie, the Premier (Mr. Mackenzie), the Minister for Lands (Mr. Lamb), and some subordinate oficials walked down from Government House to the new Houses of Parliament, the carriages which were to convey the Royal party to the laying of the foundation stone of the Alfred College, following after. His Royal Highness then planted two pine trees of the Auricaria Cookii species, or that known as the pine of New Caledonia. The trees are really fine regular handsome specimens of their kind, and are planted opposite the centre of the building in what is at present a footpath on the right leading to Government House, but which is eventually to be altered so that an oval grass plot may be formed, having a fountain in the centre with pedestals for statuary distributed round it. The two trees now planted will form part of a circle of trees standing on the grass plot, and are at present railed in to keep them from injury. The laying out of the ground will not be done until the works are completed, and the building, sheds, plant, and rubbish are removed. The ceremony of planting the trees was only witnessed by a few persons besides those who accompanied His Royal Highness, among whom were the Colonial Architect, Mr John Petrie, contractor for the finishing of the New Houses, and Mr. James Campbell, the principal sub-contractor under Mr Petrie. Mr. Walter Hill, curator of the Botanic Garden, assisted the Prince to plant the trees. Mr. Petrie's foreman, Mr. M'Naught, and a large body of the workmen, left their work to witness the ceremony, and on the satisfactory planting of each tree raised three hearty cheers for the Royal gardener.

    At the end of January there were eighty prisoners at the penal establishment, St. Helena ; five have been discharged since, and one has died ; none have been received, and consequently the number now under detention is 74.
    A correspondent writes to say that we are in error in stating that no response was made from the Challenger by the Prince to the cheers from the people on board the Ipswich, and that the Prince did appear on deck, raised his hat two or three times and lightly bowed his acknowledgments. The matter is not of great importance either way. We are still of opinion that it was not the Prince who acknowledged the cheer, but if our correspondent wishes it particularly, we will defer to his keener eye-sight and so have done with it.

    On Monday, the anniversary of the Eight-hours Movement, the Plasterers of Brisbane, to the number of thirty, the employes of Mr James Campbell, at present engaged on the New Parliamentary Buildings, assembled together in the evening in the Prince Consort Hotel, Fortitude Valley, when a very excellent supper was laid out by the worthy host, Mr. J. Heal. The chair was filled by Mr. T. M'Whinny, the vice chair by Mr. J. Hopcroft. A letter was read from their respected employer, expressing regret at his unavoidable absence, hoping that they might spend a pleasant evening, and enclosing a handsome donation, where- with to toast their sweethearts and wives. After justice had been done to the good things provided, a number of toasts fol- lowed, foremost amongst which was the health of Her Most Gracious Majesty, the health of their worthy employer success to the cause for which they had met together, and various others. The thanks of the meeting were also accorded to Mr. Heal for his painstaking and successful efforts to please; a vote of thanks was also passed to T. Richards and T. M'Whinny, jun., for their exertions in decorating the room with evergreens, flowers, and the plasterers' large banner. After spending a few hours very agreeably with songs and recitations, the meeting terminated, the parties being apparently well pleased with the evening's proceedings and with
    each other.

    THE CALEDONIAN SOCIETY.

    TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER.

    SIR,—Would you kindly allow me to say a few words in defence of the Caledonian Society, which, I am told, got a severe drubbing from the Rev. E. Griffith at his annual tea meeting on Tuesduy night last. As charity is the chief aim of our society, which the rev. gentleman knows well by what we have given to the hospital alone, and at our annual gathering in August next we intend, after paying expenses, to give the pro- ceeds to the same institution, I would like to know what grevious sin, or sins, we have been guilty of to call for a rebuke from the rev. gentleman ? If it is wrong to get up cheap and elevating entertainments at which no strong drink is allowed, also a holiday in midwinter at the time it can be properly enjoyed, then we are deserving of censure. However, I do not think that there were many of that opinion in the Gardens on the 15th of August last, as every one seemed to think they had got their shil-

    ling's worth, besides the inward satisfaction that those shillings were going to the relief of poor suffering humanity.—Yours, &c. ,

    CONCRETE PAVEMENT.

    CEMENT concrete sidewalks, we are glad to see, are coming into use in Queen-street, and we hope before long they will generally prevail throughout all our main streets. In front of

    the National Bank, the Co-operative Butchers, Messrs. Oliver's, and Petty and Grimes', and the floors of the piazza and vestibule of the new Post-office, have been successfully laid by Mr. James Campbell, the plasterer; and when this kind of pavement becomes fully appreciated there is no doubt that every shop and public building of any pretensions in the city will have it put down. The first trial of the material was made with the side-walk opposite Mr. W. Baynes' shop in Refuge Row, and although it is now laid over two years—and, it is stated, not so well constructed as the later works have been—it seems in as good condition as when first put down. The material is far superior to any other that can be used for the purpose; it will outwear three freestone pavements, and when properly laid, it is stated, will last for twenty years before it requires to be repaired. It also possesses the advantage of being little, if anything, dearer than freestone flags, and is very easy to keep free from dust and dirt. The state of our footpaths in wet weather, even in the principal thoroughfares, has long been a source of annoyance and a standing reproach which ought to exist no longer.

    THE last run of the Culgoa, a steamer of fifty-six tons, would seem to point to Noosa as a desirable port for Gympie. The little vessel, laden with pine and beech, consigned to Mr. James Campbell, of Eagle-street, left Noosa at 3 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, and arrived at Campbell's City Wharf between 5 and 6 on the following morning, the run having been made in little more that fourteen hours. The distance between Gympie and Noosa is forty miles— being shorter by about fifteen miles than the Maryborough route, and is said to offer facilities for cheaper and more expeditious travelling. We understand that the road is undergoing repair. A gentleman who arrived yesterday by the Culgoa states that he made the trip from Gympie to Brisbane in less than twenty-four hours. He was accompanied by his wife ; and the overland portion of the journey was done on horseback. Here, however, a mishap occurred—for the horses got away on the road, and four hours were lost in trying to catch them. Notwithstanding this, Noosa was reached before the vessel started.

    WRECK OF THE BLUE BELL. . Last evening's Telegraph gives the following par- ticulars of the wreck of the above vessel:— The Blue Bell steamer, well known on this river left the Bay with a cargo of 76 tons of coals for Rockhampton. She is under the command of Captain Steve Clark. Mrs. Clark and her two children were passengers by her, and it was intended by her owner, Mr. James Campbell, that she should remain in the port trade of Rockhampton. We have received ad- vices, which have been confirmed by the Hon, the Colonial Secretary, that the Blue Bell steamer went ashore on Keppel Rock last night, and has become a total wreck. The crew were all rescued by the steamer Bunyip, and together with the captain of the vessel are now at Rockhampton. The crew were John Bruce, engineer; Cornelius Dean, mate; James Hoyle, fireman; J. Seymour, cook; J. Snell, A.B.; and another. The vessel was uninsured.

    "From Locomotive Department, to Mr. Geo. Fischer, Albion Pottery, Brisbane.

    " It gives me pleasure to inform you that the large bricks made at your pottery at the beginning of this year for the fire-boxes of American locomotives, are doing excellent work, and I consider them of much better quality than those originally sent from the United States.

    " One pair of bricks were put in No. 38 engine on the 22nd February, and from then up to the close of last month the engine ran 8170 miles. Another pair were put in No. 39 engine on the 3rd March, and from then up to the close of last month, the engine ran 7116 miles. There is plenty of wear still left in the bricks.

    Abstract: Scottish-born James Campbell was an early entrepreneur whose ventures included the Buderim Mountain Sugar Mill, which operated until 1889, and the Sportsman's Arms Hotel and store built in 1882 north of Mellum Creek. In 1881 he also established a sawmill on the eastern side of Mellum Creek, below its junction with Coochin Creek. A township sprung up around the sawmill, known as Campbellville. Due to the building of the Northern Railway line, the Coochin mill was closed down in 1890. The little town of Campbellville passed into history soon after.

    FEMALE LABOUR.

    TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER.

    SIR,—Seeing that no one has taken up the cudgels on behalf of the tailoresses who were attacked in such an unmanly way by some of the speakers at the last meeting of the Trades and Labour Council, with your permission I will just say a few words. In the first place, one would have thought that those men who are so often accusing others of tyranny would have been the last to try to debar their sisters from earning an honest living, thus showing themselves to be the greatest sinners in that respect. Talk about the Englishman's love of fair play after that, when there was not a man in the meeting manly enough to lift his voice to the tyrants who would not give a sister leave to toil. I have been in the habit of say- ing that the working men of Brisbane were the finest I had ever seen, but if that meeting was a representative one I have been wofully mis-

    taken.—I am, sir, &c.,

    AN EYE OPENER.

    TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER.

    Sir,—Having been in the Post Office a few days ago I saw some of the officials very busy ripping up newspapers and pitching them into a waste paper basket, and was astonished when informed by them that it was because there were two or more papers sent with a 1d stamp, whereas every paper requires one. Now having been in the habit of sending a great many papers to the old country, generally two tied together with only one stamp, the consequence was they never got beyond the Post Office here, and by the numbers of papers I saw thrown aside there are lots of people just as ignorant as myself, for I was always under the impression that they were charged by weight. I told my informant that I thought it the duty of the Government to give the public the information, and I think so still. Often

    have I wondered that I got so few papers com-



    pared to what I sent, I don't now.—I am, sir,&c.,

    The Brick Department.

    The whole of the heavier work is done by steam power, and a glance at that power makes an intelli gible beginning. There are two boilers—one a 30 h.p. Cornish boiler, and the other a 25 h.p. multi- tubular boiler. These boilers generate steam for two horizontal engines—one of 20 h.p. and the other of 12 h.p. The steam pipes are coated with that remarkable fibrous mineral called asbestos, whose duty here is to economise heat and prevent its undue escape by diminishing its radiation from the pipes, and which would, but for the protecting, non conducting coating of asbestos, be white hot while work is proceeding. There is also a very large donkey engine which pumps water from a well, through a funnel containing a series of pipes. The technical term of this funnel is a "water-heater," and it is a beautiful vehicle of economy of fuel. The exhaust steam from the engines, which would otherwise be wasted without making its heat of active service to the manufacturer, is admitted into this funnel and forces its way through the pipes inside, imparting its heat to the water being pumped up by the donkey-engine, and causing that water to reach the boilers at almost boiling point. Thus, the cold water of the well, which is being really pumped into the boilers, by merely passing through this funnel and becoming heated by exhaust steam, is almost boiling by the time it reaches the boilers. It is easily seen that this simple utilisation of exhaust steam, or waste heat, saves the burning of many a ton of coal, and lowers, in a primary depart ment, the cost of manufacture. The asbestos already

    spoken of is imported from the Melbourne Asbestos Co., for which James Campbell & Sons are local

    agents.

    At the back of the main shed in the brick depart ment, is erected the main shafting, which is about 80 feet in length, and to which pulleys and belts are everywhere attached, for the throwing in and out of gear the various curious machines which I shall notice in detail as I follow the work of brick making. The main shafting is supported on concrete piers.

    At the back are the clay-pits. Here the eye takes in the work of excavation that has been done. From this clay-quarry, if I may so term it, Jas. Campbell & Sons have supplied already to the Government for

    purposes of public buildings a million and a half of bricks. The Colonial Architect has given it as his opinion that Campbell's bricks are superior to any others locally manufactured, especially their non- porous bricks. Indeed, so favorable is the material, that Campbell's locally made fire-bricks have answered admirably, where the best imported Stourbridge bricks have failed. But all is not left

    to Nature. I am assured that much depends upon the judicious mixing of the different kinds of " clay and shale," and the method here is so complete and thorough that the best quality is the result. In the clay-pits the picks and shovels of the laborers are busily employed on different qualities of clay, which have to be mixed in certain proportions, a know ledge of which is to be gained only by experience, and the manipulation of which is a trade secret. The mixing, however, is done by machinery, and the result is thorough. In the clay-pits tramways are laid down to each separate spot of working. Trucks are filled by the pick and shovel men, and the truckfuls are run along the tram-lines to one common centre, all the tram-lines converging to

    that centre.

    Now is seen some beautiful labor-saving machinery styled the "endless tramway." Imagine two sets of tram-lines running from the focal point of the clay-pit, up an inclined plane—from the ground to the upper floor of the shed. At the clay pit end is a horizontal wheel, and up on the shed floor is a similar wheel. In the groove of each wheel are notches made to fit on an endless chain. When in work, the chain grips a notch in each truck as it is pushed in position, the horizontal wheels grip the chain and revolve, and a relay of full trucks is sent

    up on one tram-line as fast as another relay of empty trucks is being sent down. Thus, the endless

    tramway deserves its name, the trucks running up automatically, tipping their contents in a required shoot, and returning downwards on the other tram- line, as fast as may be desired.

    The truck-tipping is a simple but ingenious method. The full truck pauses for a moment on a balance-table; its weight throws the forward part of the balance-table down; the truck tips over, and its contents are pitched into a shoot, and fall be

    Ballimore House (Ballymore) was built by John Petrie (?) for James Campbell and family between 1875-1885. It occupied land in the vicinity of Bally and More Streets, Kelvin Grove. The estate covered a portion of land between Dunsmore Street and Breakfast Creek. It included a swamp area where the present Ballymore football field stands. The area has always been known in official documents i.e. the P.M.G. Register, as Ballymore. However the same register has James Campbell as the occupant of Ballimore up until his death in the early 1900s.

    THAT DUNWICH TREAT,

    TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER.

    Sir,—A friend has just informed me that when the Evangelistic Choir go to Dunwich they are in the habit of filling the boat with their friends. If that is thecase, then I say the Chief Secretary was perfectly right in refusing them. My friend also gave me other information, which if true is a great injustice to owners of steamers, who as a rule at present are not paying expenses, yet Government boats are, it seems, allowed to carry people free who can afford to pay. For instance, when the Orlando was in the Bay some time ago the Defence boat Miner was packed with visitors going to view her ; and the different Government Departments also get the Otter for their trips, against which I must emphatically protest, for if any class are entitled to free trips, then I say it is those who do the hardest work for the least money. Now sir, having drawn attention to some abuses, I trust others will follow suit whenever they hear of any, and I have such faith in the Government that I

    believe they will be at once attended to.—I am,



    sir, &c. JAS. CAMPBELL.

    Brisbane Revisited. A GREAT COLONIAL INDUSTRY. (BY " THE TOURIST.")
    I have had the pleasure of revisiting Brisbane after an absence of about ten years, and confess to feeling astonished at the wonderful progress made by the chief city of the northern colony. As one of the most progressive of the firms identified with the earliest days of Brisbane's history, I am glad to notice the extension by James Campbell and Sons of their sphere of usefulness. When I was first in Bribane, the firm was known as that of Mr. Campbell. Mr. Campbell, sen., started this business in 1854, and in October, 1881, took his two sons, John Dunmore Campbell and James Mitchell Campbell, into part nership. The elder son (now vice-president of the Brisbane Chamber of Commerce), was named after the late Dr. Lang, whose memory is held in great esteem by the general community. Mr. Jas. Campbell and his two sons actively super intend the many and varied branches of the business. The firm has the largest builders' establishment in Brisbane, and everything a builder can require is to be had therefrom. The head office and warehouse of the firm are in Creek-street. Here is the large six- storeyed concrete warehouse, part of which is already completed at the rear of the old premises. The walls and the floors, from top to bottom, are of concrete, carried on double girders, and bearing loads which are simply astonishing. The spans are among the longest I have seen, and the arch of the floor at the usual position, for the " key " was only 6in in thick ness. The old building in front, which has done duty for so many years, is destined at an early date to give way to the stately block already begun.
    Some three miles from Brisbane, on the Breakfast Creek-road, the visitor will observe the tall chimney- stacks and the roofs of the Albion Pottery Works, now owned by Jas. Campbell and Sons. Some four years ago they bought the works and freehold from Mr. Geo. Fischer, and have shown an example of what enterprise and skill can do. Prob ably to Brisbane and to Campbell and Sons the credit belongs of having the most complete establish ment in the colonies for work in all the branches of earthenware. At one end of the property under notice, the brick department stands prominently out on the hillside. Bricks are made by the semi-plastic process, the machines being by Bradley and Craven and Johnstone, both English makers. The material is first passed through crushing rollers, and then through a large disintegrator, which effectually and thoroughly pulverises the clay. These "green" bricks are at once transferred to a large Hoffmann kiln standing near (the only Hoffmann kiln in Queensland), and to the four glazing kilns in close proximity. The bricks are the most dense that are made in Brisbane, and were used throughout in the stately pile of Government offices at the head of Queen-street. They are now being largely used on the Valley Railway for the tunnel work. Passing on, we came to the pottery department (the sheds covering about 3 acres of ground), and find an immense production of sanitary drain pipes, inter cepting traps for the prevention of the re turn of gas from the sewers,

    The employees of Messrs. James Campbell and Sons held their annual reunion on Saturday, and it proved a most enjoyable event. For years it has been the custom of the employees of this firm, whose business in this city dates as far back as 1851, to hold similar gatherings. These have always proved enjoyable, and have no doubt helped to maintain the amicable relations existing between the firm and their employees. Owing to the depression of late years these annual reunions have not been held for the past three years, but this year the employees spontaneously resolved to revive the custom at their own cost. Mr. James Campbell tried to dissuade them from incurring the expense at a time like the present, but they not only persisted in their resolve, but declined to accept monetary assistance from the firm. They formed a strong committee, consisting of Messrs. Patrick and Christensen, of the Pottery ; Rose and Caldwell, of Creek-street ; Walker and Shearer, of the Langshaw Joinery Works , G. P. Campbell and Walter Lever, of the Albion Saw-mills ; with Mr. J. A. Campbell as secretary, and Mr. Chas. Lever as treasurer. These gentlemen chartered the steamers Alice and Woolwich, and purchased the exclusive right of the Aquarium and grounds for the day. The Alice was the first to get away. She moved out from the wharf shortly after 9 o'clock, filled from stem to stern with young and old, whose happy countenances betokened pleasant anticipations. The band then struck up a lively tune, and the boat steamed gaily round the Point. The Woolwich followed about half-an-hour later, comfortably filled. Both vessels called at different points down the river and picked up a number of other passengers. Upon landing, the committee busied themselves in carrying out the various sports which had been arranged, while the swinging boats, flying machine, merry-go-round, and switchback railway were soon brought into requisition. The Columbia Band discoursed lively music on the lawn, and the scene was one of animation and gaiety. The wild animals attracted a deal of attention, and the interest in the famous Toombul tigers was intensified from the fact that among the gay throng of pleasure-seekers was Mr. Higgins, their tamer and late owner, who had not seen them for twelve months. Much speculation was indulged in as to whether the animals would recognise their old keeper, and an interested group surrounded the cages to witness the meeting. No sooner did the tigers hear Mr. Higgins's familiar voice than they sprang to their feet, uttering the most plaintive sounds and pacing their cages with their eyes fixed on their old master. They pushed their noses through the bars to be caressed by him, and when he went away " Sammy," whose view was obstructed by the partition, rose on his hind legs and placing his two great paws on the top bar, laid his nose between them, and in this attitude gazed at his departing friend. The tigress Dina also instantly recognised her old master, but her reception was in marked contrast to that of the males. It appears that some years ago Mr. Higgins had found occasion to chastise Dina and she has evidently never forgotten or forgiven him for it....During the return trip an adjournment was made to tho saloon of the Woolwich, where Mr. Patrick, as chairman of the committee, speaking on behalf of his fellow employees, thanked Messrs. James, J. D., and J. M. Campbell for their presence... Mr. James Campbell thanked the men warmly for the very agreeable "disappointment" they had given the firm. It must be very gratifying to them to know that everything had passed off so successfully that day. Never had men behaved better....It behoved employers and employed to work shoulder to shoulder and make the colony go ahead. The firm had on the previous day secured the contract, in conjunction with another firm, for the completion of the freezing works down the river -..-and that would afford employment for more hands. This was rather a new departure, as the firm had previously been suppliers of material only, leaving that sort of work to others. He hoped that they would go on to prosperity, and that the men would participate therein. He had every sympathy with the working men, but none with loafers or agitators, whose principal vocation appeared to be to create mischief between employer and employed. It was men such as those who had brought very great trouble on the colony, and who were responsible in a great measure for the existing depression by bringing about strikes. Mr. J. M. Campbell also spoke, thanking the men for the outing. He heartily concurred with all his father and brother had said. Three cheers were then given for Messrs. James Campbell and Sons.

    Local Industry. THE ALBION SAW-MILLS, BRICK AND EARTHENWARE WORKS. PROGRESS OF THE BUILDING TRADE. (By our Special Reporter.)
    The new industries which have of late years arisen in the city of Brisbane and the important development that has taken place in those long established are strong indications of the industrial pros- perity which Queensland must in the near future undoubtedly attain. A good object lesson may be obtained by visiting the large manufacturing establish- ments of Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, Limited, situated at Albion, three miles northward of the city, and which form an industry of which the general public can scarce form an adequate idea. All observing travellers by way of the North Coast Railway cannot fail to have noticed while crossing the Breakfast Creek Bridge an extensive block of saw-milling sheds (connected by rail- way siding to main line), and the necessary accompaniments of timber stacks, jib cranes, and gigantic logs of pine and hardwood, comprising a scene of busy activity. The many varieties of colonial timbers suitable for general buildings, construction, or fine wood work purposes have become so popular of late years as to materially lessen the number of foreign timber-laden ships arriving at our shores. The extensive Eucalyptus forests all along the coast offer an al- most inexhaustible supply of hardwood ; and pine and cedar scrubs are also heavily drawn upon. Messrs. Campbell and Sons, Limited, have several timber tradig vessels at their command which carefully explore every nook and corner of the South Queensland coastal streams, and deliver regular cargoes at the Albion mills by way of Breakfast Creek. The demand for sawn timber has of late become so extensive that the above named company are forwarding quantities to timber merchants at Thursday Island, Normanton, and Townsville, particularly to the lastnamed place ; and when it is remembered that supplies are drawn from other milling centres along the coastline this fact is evidence of the progressive development of the North. The volume of business in the timber milling trade of Brisbane has shown a steady increase since about the middle of last year. A considerable spurt was noticeable towards the end of 1895, and although there was a slight falling away in the early part of the present year, the trade is reported to be increasing considerably every month. While a good deal of the extra demand may be attributed to Brisbane and its neighbourhood, the bulk of the increase has occurred in Northern orders. But the saw-milling trade is not the only important industry carried on by Messrs. Campbell and Sons, Limited. A short distance eastward of the mills, but worked as a separate business, are the brick, terra cotta, and earthenware works of this go-ahead company. In variety and quality their manufactured stocks may be safely classed as equal to anything produced in the Southern Hemisphere. The commodities comprise such articles as drain pipes and elbows, earthenware mangers, to destroy which horses in the habit of "crib-biting" would have "a large order," poultry- drinking fountains, flower pots of all sizes, and beautifully glazed delf tea- pots; to whlch may be added the terra-cotta and general ornamental work con- nected with the building trade, each proving an important offshoot from the brickmaking, to which the works owe their chief importance. HISTORY OF THE COMPANY. The origin of Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, Limited, as now constituted, is unquestionably due to the indefatigable energy, business tact, and per- severance of Mr. James Campbell, one of the early pioneers of the Moreton Bay district, and a gentleman who has been closely associated with the rise and progress of Brisbane for over forty-two years. He arrived in Moreton Bay in the ship John Fielding from Liverpool towards the close of 1853. He found work in his own trade was not to be had, and cast about for something else, as his motto was "be up and doing." He started business as a supplier of building materials in 1854. As Brisbane increased in size, so Mr. Campbell's business also developed. In 1881 he admitted his two sons into partnership, and to the business capacity of these young men the important position now held by the company is in a great measure due. Mr. James Campbell is a managing director of the company. The eldest son, Mr. John Dunmore Campbell, is chairman of the managing directors, and is actively engaged in supervising and controlling the varied business of the company. He is also a member of the Marine Board, and one of the Government representatives on the Committee of Management of the Brisbane Hospital, and did good work in the position of chairman of the Bris- bane Chamber of Commerce. The second son, Mr. James Mitchell Campbell is likewise one of the managing directors of the company. He also holds several important honorary positions in connec- tion with various charitable institutions. ................

    MESSRS. JAMES CAMPBELL AND SONS.

    EMPLOYEES' OUTING.

    After a suspension of five years, the annual outing tendered to their employees by Messrs. James Campbell and Sons was
    revived on Saturday. The function was a success from every point of view. The weather was, of course, perfect, and everyone who took part in the outing, from Mr. James Campbell himself to the office boy, entered fully into the spirit of the thing, and, as a consequence, a most enjoyable day was spent. Indeed, it was questionable whether any one present was more happy than the gentlemen who, nearly half-a-century ago, initiated what is now one of the largest business concerns in Queensland. He was about the first on the steamer, and the last to leave the Aquarium, the rendezvous of the excursionists. He started the day by superintending the sports, and ended it by filling the youngsters' cup of pleasure to overflowing by the wholesale distribution of lollies and fruits. Mr. J. D. Campbell and Mr. J M. Campbell, too, were most energetic, the former, acting as handicapper and judge of the events, and the latter supervising things generally, including the boiling of the copper. Those who also assisted prominently in the ar- rangements were Messrs. R. Rose, J. Cald- well, W. Lever, T. Kelly, C. Lever, and Butterworth. About 150 employees, with their families or friends, representative of the Redbank works and Creek-street warehouse, boarded the Natone at Brisbane ; but the number was increased to 530 at Toombul, the new contingent being facetiously termed " sawdust and clay punchers ;" they were the saw-millers and potters from the Albion works. A string band played selections on the way down, and on reaching the Aquarium the crowd (now about 600, some having driven down by road) set themselves to work to promote fun. Some went in for cricket, others preferred fishing, though, judging by the state of the baskets at the end of the day, theirs was a case of love's labour lost ; while children congregated in groups with their skipping ropes or at the merry-go-round, and many couples sought enjoyment by dancing. Added to these was a programme of sports, the prizes for which had been thoughtfully provided by the firm. For the most part the excursionists carried their own luncheon baskets, but for those who cared more for a set dinner, Mr. Koenig had laid a spread in the main building. The proceeding were throughout of a most har- monious nature, and everything pointed to a continuance of these amicable relations between employers and employees ("helpers" Mr. Campbell prefers to call them), which have existed since the firm became established in 1854—a relationship which has never during the long period been strained by a strike or even a serious difference.

    The following were the results of the sports :—...............

    James Campbell and Sons, Limited.

    This firm show some splendid specimens of pottery work, produced in their Albion Pottery Works. Building and fire bricks and drain pipes are ranged together with all varieties of terra cotta ware, architectural terra-cotta, and domestic earthenware, and there is also some Parian raised flowering, the first made in the colony, on which the firm justly pride themselves. Though the firm have been only two years in this par- ticular business, the quality of the work shown is of a high grade. In the way of woodwork, in connection with which the firm are perhaps even better known, the counter surrounding the exhibits is in itself a fine specimen. The pine panelling has been beautifully grained. There are also shown some specimens of mirrors, bevelled and ground by the firm. But the works which commend themselves most to the general eye as meritorious are placed amongst the exhibits of Messrs. Webster and Co. These are two excellent statuary groups in plaster executed for the proprietors of Champion's vinegar and Col- man's mustard. The first represents a medieval mounted knight in armour, and the second is a copy of a well-known humorous showcard of the firm in which a group of cooks are disporting themselves over a giant tin of mustard. All these figures were modelled in the clay by Mr. J. L. Watts, and then recast in plaster of paris and bronzed and mounted by Mr. J. J. Munro and the firm's employees. The figures are of heroic size, and are very creditable specimens of this class of work.

    Man is his own star, and that soul that can Be honest is the only perfect man. —FLETCHER. A Scotchman; one of the best brands.

    First saw the light at Auchterarder, in Perthshire, on 6th March, 1830. Never sucked his thumbs, always had them other- wise employed. Showed a strong antipathy to the silver spoon, too ; a common everyday plebeian sort was good enough for him. Family couldn't make him out ; shocked them, considerably. The birth of James instituted a new era in the Campbell genealogy. (His folks weren't quite sure whether he ought to be a soldier or a parson. Seemed to be cut out for the pipe-clayed ranks, but " the cloth" looked more respectable ; besides, two well-to-do uncles were parsons, and saw in young James valorous instincts which they reckoned the Church would be lucky to have on its side. But James had an inborn contempt for both the Church and those who run it. Reckons the best religion is that which teaches a man to love his brother ; with him, Lowell and Burns are a long way ahead of the Bible, which he knows by heart. Clergy have gone baldheaded in the attempt to convert him ; business people at first boycotted him, but they discovered that a Freethinker can also be an admirable citizen. There's no man more heterodox than he ; there's certainly no man more universally respected. The youthful James kicked over the traces early. Put in about seven years at school ; made a point of thrashing the schoolmaster twice annually. Always well ahead in his lessons, though. At 11, how- ever, considered he'd start out "on his own." Spurred on by the fact that parson uncles wanted to shut him up in a univer- sity. Shocked the aforesaid uncles by informing them that his desire was to earn an honest livelihood, and he didn't think that possible when rigged out in frock coat and white choker. They gave him best then. Predicted all sorts of evil con- sequences. Emphasised that opinion by being hauled up for poaching and fighting before he was 18 years of age. James apprenticed himself to a plasterer ; found his level among working men. Worked at his trade for some years. Then, like many other good colonists, decided that the old country was too rankly conservative and much too small. Thought he'd try America. Australia, however, loomed up before him at that precise period. So he came to Moreton Bay. Arrived here in John Field- ing in 1853. Was not unduly impressed with his new home. The plastering business, anyhow, was a trifle " off" ; people thought themselves lucky if they got a slab humpy. Besides, there were already five plasterers here —three of them convicts. James didn't wait for work to hunt him ; looked for it. Took a labourer's job at 4s. 6d. a day of ten hours, and reckoned himself lucky to get it. Then tackled timbergetting, shingling, fencing, carpentering, bricklaying, painting, glazing —in fact anything he could get hold of. Gradually worked his way up into owning his own business. Did good work and got his share. Likewise got plenty of debtors, if a man said he couldn't pay, James Camp- bell didn't press. Other people weren't so considerate. He had about £900 on his books on one occasion, and his storekeeper refused him a bag of sugar and 2lb. of tea. On top of this two of his biggest debtors bolted. Such is life ! Considered time had arrived for a change ; made it, but never could be hard. A Radical in everything ; in politics a democrat of Democrats. A believer in municipalisation, and objects to the people having to cadge for hospitals, charitable institutions, and sich like ; reckons they have a claim on the State which cannot be gain-said. Looks upon the working man as the backbone of the country ; honours and respects him above all others. Working man reciprocates the feeling. Ask Campbell and Sons' hundreds of employees who is the best boss they ever worked for. Doesn't consider his men owe him anything that he doesn't owe them. One of the prime movers in the old Liberal Association. One of the earliest achievements was to give the late Sir Charles Lilley political life. Sent him in for the Valley. James Campbell and other old war-horses used to mature their schemes in a schoolroom off Creek-street, where Mercantile Buildings now stand. Not many of the old boys living now ; they are dropping off one by one. Wonder does Queensland know how much it owes to pioneers of the Campbell type ? Political fights in those days were for principles, not personal gain. They were good old times, when public men strove to make the country better than they found it! James once essayed to gain municipal distinction. Walked all over Beattie (the hatter) for the East Ward. Some said a Freethinker couldn't possibly make a good alderman— one went so far as to say a Freethinker couldn't be a plasterer! ....

    Hon. William Aplin—Miss Isabella Campbell.

    In the drawing-room at Camona, Kelvin Grove, the residence of Mr. and Mrs. James Campbell, on Wednesday, 3rd instant, was celebrated the marriage of the Hon.

    William Aplin, M.L.C. (Messrs. Aplin, Brown, and Co.), of Southwick station, Townsville, to Miss Isabella Campbell, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Campbell. Dr. M'Swaine performed the ceremony. The drawing-room was beauti- fully decorated with flowers, and over the bride and bridegroom a handsome floral wedding bell was suspended, the artistic work of the bride's nieces (the daughters of Mr. J. D. Campbell). Miss Philp, niece of the bride, was the only bridesmaid, but nine little girls, near relatives of the bride, all attired in white, with dainty poke bon- nets of chiffon ornamented with lilies of the valley, carried baskets of rose leaves, which they scattered in the path of the bride as she left for her honeymoon. The bride was attired in a simple gown of white silk muslin over white silk ; picture hat of white straw, with white ribbon bows and ostrich tips ; white flowers beneath the brim, resting on the hair. She wore a diamond and pearl brooch and bracelet, the gift of her sister, Mrs. James Forsyth, and carried a lovely shower bouquet of white flowers, the bridegroom's gift. Miss Philp wore a pretty frock of white Liberty silk, with broad sash of amethyst silk ; delicate gold chain with amethyst and pearl orna- ment, presented to her by the bridegroom. Mrs. Campbell, mother of the bride, a rich costume of black silk relieved by heliotrope. The wedding party was restricted to immediate relatives of the bride and bridegroom. The Hon. William and Mrs. Aplin left by the afternoon train for Harlaxton, where they will spend a few days. The bride's travelling dress was of brown summer tweed with skeleton check of blue, made in coat and skirt style, and relieved with a little blue silk ; plain brown straw sailor hat.

    The annual outing of the employees of Messrs. J. Campbell and Sons' employees was held yesterday. By courtesy it is understood that one year the employees give the picnic, inviting their employers, and the next year the firm return the compliment. Yesterday it was the firm's " turn," and no efforts were spared to make the holiday thoroughly enjoyable. About 9.10 the steamer Glide, which had been chartered for the occasion, left the Market Wharf, North Quay, with a large number of the employees, their wives, and children, and a very pleasant run was made to the Seven-mile Rocks, an orchestra of six performers rendering selections during the journey. Here a landing was effected, and the steamer's complement of passengers were soon camped under the shade of various trees, and preparations made for lunch. Messrs. J. Campbell, sen., J. D. Campbell, M.L.A., J. M. Campbell, G. P. Campbell, and J. C. Campbell (Redbank) drove out, accompanied by their wives, and "picnicked" amongst their employees. The band selected a spot which was almost the centre of the scattered groups of happy-looking folk, and at intervals discoursed sweet music. It was a perfect day, and everyone seemed bent on thorough enjoyment and forgetfulness of care. The children, with buoyant spirits, ran hither and thither, raced, skipped, and laughed and cried alternately, while their parents watched them with proud looks, or gathered round the " course" for the sports when any events were being run off. During the afternoon there were additions to the party, some visitors and a few of the em- ployees coming out by vehicle, the total number on the ground being about 400. Amongst the visitors were Mr. J. Forsyth, M.L.A., and Misses I. Campbell and E. Philp. Racing was going on most of the day, and when the young men were not at it there were numbers of children

    to be seen eagerly competing for various

    prizes, such as books, dolls, and toys. The little ones, indeed, had a regular treat— every one of them seemed to be the proud possessor of something, and of fruit and lollies—children's delights—there was no

    lack. 'The steamer was boarded shortly after 4 o'clock, and a concert took place on the way home, which was very enjoy-

    able, the contributors being Messrs. T. M'Minn, Shearer, Saunders, F. W. Mason, J. Buchanan, and J. Ryan, and the orchestra. Shortly after the steamer left on the homeward journey.

    Mr. T. M'Minn said that he had been asked by Mr J. Campbell, sen., on behalf of the firm, to thank the committee for the efforts they had made to render the outing a success, and also to thank the employees who had attended.

    Mr. W. Lever, on behalf of the employees, said that their hearty thanks were tendered to the firm for the very pleasant outing they had had. He (the speaker) had thoroughly enjoyed himself, notwith- standing that he had been obliged to carry a child in his arms most of the day— (laughter)—and he believed that the other employees had also passed a pleasant holiday. He called for three cheers for the firm and one for Mr. Campbell, sen., which were very heartily given.

    Town was reached about 5.30 o'clock.

    Following are the names of the successful competitors in the sports events held during the day :—

    J. CAMPBELL AND SONS' EMPLOYEES.

    The annual reunion of the employees of Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, Limited, took place on Tuesday at Corbett's Paddock, Enoggera, which was granted for the occasion by the kindness of Mrs. Corbett. The picnickers to the number of about 400 were conveyed to the Enoggera terminus by special train, which left the Central Station at 8.30, stopping at Brunswick-street, Mayne (where the majority of the Albion contingent boarded the train), and Windsor stations on the way. The party was accompanied by a detachment of the Sandgate Town Band under Bandmaster Bloomfield. A great number also came out by road, and by 11 o'clock there must have been fully 600 persons present, including Mr. and Mrs. James Campbell, sen., Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Campbell and family, and Mrs. J. D. Campbell and family, Mr. J. D. Campbell, unfortunately, being too ill to be present. Arrangements had been made whereby each of the children present was given a gift in addition to fruit and lollies. A sports programme of about twelve items was also prepared for their benefit, the prizes being pretty and useful books. During the afternoon dancing was indulged in by the young people to the excellent music supplied by the band, while on other parts of the ground tug-of-war, skipping, and other games were carried out to the evident enjoyment of all. The following are the results of the sports held during the forenoon :— 160 Yards Handicap : J. Cressey, 1 ; W. Stewart, 2 ; W. Anderson, 3. Boys' Race : A. M'Innes, 1 ; Hale, 2 ; Anderson, 3.

    Death of Mr. James Campbell.

    By the death of Mr. James Campbell, founder of the extensive businesses of J. Campbell and Sons, Limited, which took place on Monday morning at Camona, Kelvin Grove, Brisbane has lost one of its oldest and most respected citizens. Mr. Campbell passed away after a long and trying illness, due, it was thought, to a neglected attack of influenza four or five months ago. Since then he had been confined to his bed, his illness slowly, but surely, sapping his strength, and ultimately proving fatal. It was his confident belief that he would recover, and, indeed, every thing that medical skill and loving care could suggest was done to save his life ; and at times he had rallied so completely, was so cheerful and so hopeful that it was thought he would live for many years yet. His closing days were cheered by numerous and affectionate inquiries after his health, and not the least acceptable and touching of these were those which came from old employees, from men who had grown gray in his ser- vice, men who gratefully remembered some timely service, and who had come to esteem most deeply his strong per- sonality and his kindly heart. A man who had employed many, who had carried on great enterprises, who had all the keen business qualities of his race, he was al- ways looked upon as one of the best of employers, and the warmest hearted of friends. To follow his long, strenuous, and useful life would be to trace the greater part of the history of Brisbane. Born at Auchterarder, in Perthshire, on 6th March, 1830, he lived to complete his 74th year. He came of a good Scotch family, but though of Scotch birth he lived the greater part of his life in Queensland, and identified himself with its indus- trial and commercial development con- tinuously ; and to all intents and purposes he made the land of his adoption his native land. Originally, his family designed him for the church, but he soon found that his true vocation was in secular life. At an early age he apprenticed himself to a plasterer, and worked at his trade for some years. He then decided to emigrate to seek in a new country the opportuni- ties that he was satisfied did not exist in good old Scotland. He first thought of trying America, but a good deal of interest was then being aroused by the Rev. Dr. Lang in Australia, and it was that patriotic and able colonists's influence that resolved him to try his luck in Queensland. With Mrs. Campbell he took passage by the ship John Fielding, and arrived in Moreton Bay on the 12th June, 1853. Finding little opening for a plasterer, he turned his hand to many trades and occupations, but within a year after his arrival he started in business for himself, and from that start has grown the varied indus- trial enterprises of the present limited company. This, as is well known, embraces a great saw-mill business ; brick-making, a pottery, cement-making, and a general import trade in building materials. Mr. Campbell during his active life —for he was a man of great mental and physical alertness—built up a very large business, and if he had been of a less generous dis- position he would have probably been one of the wealthiest citizens of Brisbane. As many who have been associated with him or who have appealed to him in their hour of need know, he was always ready to help, but strongly averse to any thing which savoured of display. At the same time he was a shrewd busi ness man, and a firm believer in the great natural resources of his country, which he did a great deal to develop. He was a born fighter, and in his political views an ardent Radical. In earlier years he took a keen interest in politics, and was one of those who induced the late Sir Charles Lilley to enter public life, and who secured his return for Fortitude Valley the first time. Those were stirring days in politics, and feeling at times ran to a height diffi- cult to realise in these placid days ; and Mr. Campbell was one of those who worked hardest and fought most strenuously. He was one of the prime movers in the old Liberal Association. For two years he was an alderman in the City Council, and for a time was a member of the Ithaca Shire Council. Mr. Campbell had five sons and three daughters. One boy died in infancy. The eldest surviving son is Mr. J. D. Campbell, the member for Moreton, and managing director of the company founded by his father. His brothers. Mr. J. M. Campbell, Mr. H. E. Campbell, Mr. G. P. Campbell, and Mr. C. W. Campbell, are directors of the company. Mr. Campbell's eldest daugh- ter was Hon. R. Philp's first wife ; another daughter is married to Mr. J. Forsyth, M.L.A., and a third is the widow of the late Hon. W. Aplin. Alderman R. M. Campbell, owner of the Brisbane Soap Works, is a brother, and Mr. J. Campbell, manager of the company's brick works at Redbank, is another brother. One of Mr. Campbell's sisters is Mrs. John Munro, of Eagle Junction, and another is Mrs. Thomas Petrie, of North Pine. Mr. Campbell retained his vigorous mental grasp almost to the end, and he passed away peacefully in the presence of the members of his family, deeply deplored by all who knew him, and not least by the men who had worked for him " in the early days."

    Biography
    James Campbell (1830-1904), businessman and manufacturer, was born on 6 March 1830 at Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland, son of John Campbell, farmer, and his wife Helen, née Morison. Trained as a plasterer, he took an assisted passage to Moreton Bay, arriving in Brisbane by the John Fielden on 12 June 1853. Finding little work at his trade, Campbell took other building jobs and opened a store for building materials in George Street in 1854; he soon moved to Creek Street. Demand increased substantially in the 1860s and Campbell found an expanding market for the lime, cement and plaster he won from the corals of Moreton Bay. In the 1870s he began milling and selling timber procured initially near Brisbane and Ipswich. He also purchased several ships and built up a thriving shipping trade. The firm James Campbell & Sons was founded in 1882.The exhaustion of local timber forced Campbell to cover much of the coast from Gympie to Kyogle, New South Wales, with numerous mills. The sawn timber was shipped to the firm's wharf near Creek Street in its own ships. In the 1880s and 1890s the firm diversified its activities, prefabricating houses and buying Petrie's quarry at Albion, the Buderim sugar-mill and the Redbank brickworks. In 1896 it became a limited liability company. A born fighter and political radical, he was involved in the Queensland Liberal Association of the 1850s, spent two years as an alderman of the Brisbane Municipal Council and was also a member of the Ithaca Shire Council. A frequent press correspondent on what he saw as injustices, he was an unofficial spokesman for migrants, particularly Scots, and befriended many. He was an ardent advocate of improved working conditions and gave his men the eight-hour day willingly. He refused, however, to accept trade unions, but was respected by his men for his strong personality and genuine charity. [Source: A. L.

    The funeral of the late Mr. J. Campbell took place on Thursday forenoon, and was largely attended. The cortege left Invermay, Kelvin Grove, shortly after 11 o'clock. Before the hearse marched 200 employees of the firm of James Campbell and Sons, the polished cedar casket with its heavy silver fittings was almost hidden beneath its burden of beautiful flowers, noticeable among which were a cross of crimson carnations upon a bed of white roses and Watsonia, bearing the letters Q.A.T.B. (Queensland Ambulances Transport Brigade), and a pink cross of carnations from an outlying centre of the same body. An open landau which followed the hearse was fully taxed to convey the remainder of the floral offerings. The mourning carriages followed, among the occupants being the sons of the deceased gentleman. Then came three ambulance sulkies, containing Superintendent King, Deputy-Super- intendent Slaughter, Superintendent Tomkins (Ipswich), Bearers Baker, W. Armstrong, Mr. T. W. Duffield, Sen- ior-Driver J. Andersaley, and Driver Russell. A long line of private vehicles and cabs followed. On arrival at the Toowong Cemetery gates the employees formed single file on each side, allow- ing the hearse and mourning coaches to enter, and falling in immediately behind them again. The coffin was borne from the hearse by four members of the am- bulance brigades auperintendent King, Deputy-Superintendent Slaughter, Superintendent Tomkins (Ipswich), and Collector and Bearer Baker. At the house the pall-bearers were also brigade men Superintendent King, Deputy-Superlntendent Slaughter. Bearer Hardcgreave and Collector and Bearer Baker. The simple service of the Presbyterian Church was coducted by the Rev. Sweyn Macqueen.

    The cause of charity in Brisbane is poorer to-day by the death of Mr. J. M. Campbell, one of the best-known business men and philanthropists in the State. He had been in ill-health for about fourteen months and his condition latterly caused his relatives and many friends the gravest anxiety. His illness terminated in his death on Wednesday week. Mr. J. M. Campbell was a partner in the old firm of Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, and became one of the managing directors in the firm of Messrs. Jas. Campbell and Sons, Limited. With his brother, Mr. J. D. Campbell, M.L.A., he was the controlling spirit of the large business prior to his illness, and when Mr. J. D. Campbell was in England he acted as manager of the firm. The heavy weight of responsibility and his untiring work in charitable circles doubtless contributed to his illness, and when his brother returned from the Old Country he found Mr. J. M. Campbell seriously ill. It was characteristic of the deceased that at his wish the recent picnic of the employees was held, and the bright and hopeful message that the sick man sent to his co-workers on that happy occasion was received in a way which showed how thoroughly he had won their respect and esteem. The late Mr. J. M. Campbell was prominently identified with many of the deserving charities in Brisbane. He was chairman of the Ambulance Brigade and of the Blind, Deaf, and Dumb Institution, and recently of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty. His earnest endeavour to establish a girl's home at Nundah will long be gratefully remembered, but it was in connection with the Boys' Home that his kindly services will be, perhaps, best remembered. In rain or shine he set apart portion of three days in every week to supervise and assist the boys, and his death will rob the Home of a generous benefactor. Mr. Campbell has left behind him a widow (formerly Miss Vidgen, daughter of Mr. J. G. Vidgen, late secretary of the Gas Company) and seven children. He was a brother-in-law of the Hon. R. Philp and Mr. Jas. Forsyth, M.M.L.A.

    Memorial Tablet Unveiled.

    An interesting ceremony took place yes terday afternoon in the Brisbane Gym nasium, when a tablet to the memory of the late Mr James Campbell, sen., who was president of the institution, was un veiled in the presence of a numerous gathering. All the members of the family, except one son who is absent from the

    State, were present, including Mrs. Campbell, sen., Mesdames James Forsyth

    and Wm. Aplin, also the two daughters of the late Mr. J. M. Campbell, and Messrs. J. D., C. W., and G. P. Campbell. Others present included the Hon. E. B. Forrest and Mr. J. Forsyth, M.M.L.A., Dr. Robt. Thompson, Alderman Fleming, Messrs. Bennett, R. W. Thurlow, J. Clark, James Chapman, J. G. Vidgen, S. W. Brooks, and James Muir. Apologies for absence were received from the Hons. E. J. Stevens, M.L.C., and R. A. Philp, M.L.A., Messrs. E. H. Macartney, C. M. Jenkinson, and J. Cameron, M.M.L.A. Mr. T. Welsby, the president of the Gymnasium, who performed the unveiling ceremony,

    said that the Hon. E. J. Stevens, himself an ardent supporter of sport, had written keenly regretting his inability to be pre- sent, and stating regarding the late Mr . Campbell that "a whiter man never existed ; we could do with a thousand more like him." (Applause.) Mr. Welsby went on to observe that when he said the late Mr. Campbell was the most ardent and loyal of all supporters of the Brisbane Gymnasium that statement would be fully appreciated by those pre sent. Mr Campbell had, with the deter mination of character for which he was noted, resolved when the old building was removed to erect a gymnasium worthy of Brisbane. This object, with the assistance of the public and the members of the Gymnasium, he had accomplished without seeking Government assistance. Their late friend had promoted amateur boxing contests, with the result that they had had absolutely clean sport, and the funds of the Gymnasium had been greatly assisted. The tablet to his memory, in its simplicity and truthfulness of wording, stood as a tribute to a man who, like Nelson, manfully did his duty. He (the speaker) asked them to remember a good man gone from their midst, who, because of his honesty of purpose and uprightness of character, left a memory behind, not of sorrow, but of pleasantness and respect. Mr. Welsby also referred to the fact that the late Mr Campbell had been one of the pioneers of Queensland, and a worthy citizen, who took an active part in the advancement of the city. He had endeared himself to all with whom he came in con- tact. He trusted the tablet would ever remain in the building as a memento of the best friend and supporter the Gym- nasium had ever possessed. (Applause.) The Hon. E. B. Forrest and Messrs. J. Chapman and S. W. Brooks also briefly spoke, bearing testimony to the worth of the late Mr. Campbell. Mr. J. D. Campbell, on behalf of his mother and the members of the family, expressed their deep appreciation of the honour done to the memory of their relative. No better reward could have been wished for by his father than to know that his work for the Gymnasium met with such appreciation. (Applause.) The tablet, which consists of a neat bronze scroll set on white cement, and is placed over the doorway at the end of the main hall, bears the following inscription:—"In memory of the grand old man of this Gymnasium, James Campbell, who died April 14, 1904. A friend and supporter of the institution from its foundation. "

    In running from Edinburgh to York, an express engine burns about 3½ tons of coal, and consumes about 2000 gallons of

    water.

At the general election of March, 1899, he was induced to allow himself to be nomin ated for the constituency of Moreton. He won the seat by a very large ma jority, defeating four other candidates, amongst whom was the ex-member. As it was thought that his office as a member of the Marine Board preven ted his holding a seat in Parliament, Mr Campbell resigned shortly after his election, but he was re-elected without opposition, a similar compliment being paid to him at the general elections of 1902, 1904 and 1907.

    MRS. JAMES FORSYTH.

    "Yes, I'm a returned Queenslander," said Mrs. James Forsyth," and very glad to be at home; the welcome at the wharf and all along the line, the telegrams and messages from friends, have almost over-whelmed me." Mrs. Forsyth, accompanied by Miss Ivy Philp, returned by the Orontes yesterday morning from an extended tour to England, Scotland, and the Continent. She was also fortunate in having her mother, Mrs. James Campbell, sen., and her sister, Mrs. Aplin, to bid her welcome to her home at Braelands, Toowong. Mrs. Forsyth avowed that her trip was taken purely for pleasure, but her journey included, besides places of historic note, some of the lovely Highland hills and glens of Scotland, where she invariably experienced fine weather, and where she was entreated to stay "as long as she could," and "come as often as possible." For four months Mrs Forsyth was in Switzerland, at Montreux, Lausanne, where Miss Ivy Philp spent about three months at school perfecting her French. From Montreux numerous excursions were made to the Chateaux D'dex and Les Avants, among the Swiss mountains. Mrs. Forsyth also spent a fortnight in the land of the midnight sun, and was very enthusiastic in praise of the wonderful beauty of glaciers and mountain scenery. She made the house of her brother (Mr. Harry Campbell, at one time manager for Burns, Philp, and Co., at Townsville), at Ealing, her head-quarters. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell and family have been in the old country for eight years, and live in a very beautiful suburb of London. Among other matters of special interest Mrs. Forsyth spoke of the Queensland Court at the Franco- British Exhibition, and said they were quite close to the King and Queen on their visit of inspection. Of course she became enthusiastic over the beauty of her Majesty, and her wonderfully youthful ap- pearance. Mrs. Forsyth visited the Covent Garden Theatre on the occasion of President Fallieres' visit, and saw in one box beside this distinguished guest their Majesties the King and Queen, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and Princess Victoria. Melba and Tetrazzini sang, and the place seemed filled with beautiful women, literally ablaze with diamonds. It was a sight worth seeing and remembering. Mrs. Forsyth and Miss Philp had a glorious trip back to Queensland, and the former again patriotically expressed her appreciation of her native land, and the warmth of welcome of her friends.

    Mr. J. D. Campbell, ex-M.L.A., managing director of the firm of James Campbell and Sons, died at his residence, "Donatello," Albion, on Saturday morning.

    The news of the sad event was received with feelings of deepest regret by all classes

    in Brisbane. The public had been aware for some time that Mr. Campbell was seriously ill, but there was a well-founded hope, widely shared by friends and acquaintances, that his temporary with- drawal from an active share in the busi- ness of his firm would help to restore him to his accustomed condition of health and vigour. Early in February last his illness commenced. He was working in his office one day

    when a sudden breakdown occurred, the trouble being caused, as the doctors after- wards ascertained, by the stoppage of a clot of blood in one of the branch arteries of the brain. It was thought possible that, with rest and care, the complaint might have been success- fully combated, and yielding to the wishes of his medical advisers and his family Mr. Campbell, who was a hard and tireless worker, decided to adopt the

    course that was prescribed for him, and to the great gratification of all his friends he occasionally showed symptoms of improving health. In fact, it was only at rare intervals that the illness from which he suffered assumed a serious form. Quite recently he was progressing very satisfactorily, and the hopes of his family

    that he was on the road to ultimate re- covery were rising higher every week. He was taking a keen interest in his business without worrying in any way, and only a fortnight ago he decided to resign his seat for Moreton, so as not to inconvenience his party by absences from the House. All was going well until the evening of Thursday of last week, when he complained of severe headache. Mr. Lightoller, who had been attending him

    previously, had no grounds for assuming that this indicated any serious complica- tion, because even prior to the seizure in February last Mr. Campbell suffered at times from distressing headaches. The doctor administered a suitable sleeping draught, but the pains continued, and on Friday the patient spent a

    restless and trying time. But no immediate danger was anticipated. A relief from the pains was hourly hoped for, but during the night there was no change, and towards morning Mr. Campbell fell into a state of semi-consciousness. The end came suddenly, and at 7.15 a.m. he breathed his last, while his grief-stricken family was assembled at the bedside. The &VllHlrltlfc)W of the citizens of all classes

    and creeds will go out to them in their bereavement. The remains of the late Mr. J. D. Camp bell were interred at Toowong on Sunday afternoon amid every token of public and private respect and sorrow. From far and near people journeyed to the cemetery to pay a last tribute, and rarely has there

    been such a large attendance of the pub- lic. There was a general feeling of loss— a feeling of sadness and sincere regret at the untimely close of so useful a life. So pronounced was that sentiment in the dis- trict which Mr. Campbell represented in Parliament with such distinguished fidelity that upwards of 150 of his late constituents came to Brisbane to attend the funeral. A special train was run from Eumundi, and it picked up passengers at each stop-

    ping place on the way down. Many drove in from less distant centres, several from Beerwah and the vicinity of the North Pine. So far as Brisbane was concerned every class in the community was repre- sented in the solemn procession to the cemetery, or around the newly-opened grave. General regret was expressed at Wood ford when news of the death of the late Mr. J. D. Campbell was received (writes our Woodford correspondent). Mr. H. Carseldine represented the residents of Woodford at the funeral.

    Tom & Elizabeth (nee Campbell) Petrie
    Thomas Petrie, explorer, grazier and friend of Aboriginals, was born on 31 January 1831 in Edinburgh. He was the third son of Andrew Petrie and brother of John. The family emigrated to Sydney in March 1831 and moved to Moreton Bay in 1837. Thomas was educated by a convict clerk and allowed to mix freely with aboriginal children. He learned the local aboriginal language and participated in all their activities including the triennial feast at the Bunya Range when he was 14. Petrie was in constant demand as a messenger or companion for exploring expeditions due to his friendly relations with the aboriginal people.
    In the 1850s Petrie tried his luck on the goldfields of Queensland and Victoria with little success. Thomas Petrie married Elizabeth Campbell, sister of James Campbell, hardware merchant in 1858. In the Pine Creek district on the Whiteside run he bought a property called Murrumba (Good place). He continued to explore widely and in 1862 was the first white man to climb Buderim Mountain. Petrie died at Murrumba on the 26th August 1910 survived by his wife (who died in 1926) and two sons and five daughters of their nine children. In 1910 the name of the North Pine district was changed to Petrie in his honour. (Information taken from: Australian dictionary of biography, v.5, 1974)

    Most visitors to the metropolis at the present time will be struck with the very handsome six-storey warehouse, which, on looking down Eagle-street, appears to fill up the end of that street. Twelve months ago this building was not completed, consequently its appearance was by no means so imposing as the completed structure turns out to be. Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, Ltd , have been in the State for 56 years. Having been established so many years ago, some people might fancy that they would be old-fashioned, but a glance at their spacious warehouse and a peep into the many departments contained in it prove quite the reverse. Their business—that of supplying the necessary materials for the construction of all kinds of buildings—has increased enormously within recent years, and at the present time they are doing record business. Their departments housed at the Creek street warehouse comprise hardware, paints, glass, cement, &c., while at Albion they have extensive saw, joinery, and moulding mills, as well as brick, drain pipe, and pottery works. They are complete suppliers of building materials, selling timber, doors, windows, mouldings, bricks, cement, drain pipes, galvanised iron, ridging, spouting, tanks, baths, sinks, metal ceilings, glass, cement, fencing wire, &c. They have made themselves famous throughout the State as makers of ready-to-erect houses, a system which has met with unparalleled success. They have 24 designs to submit, but are prepared to quote to any design required. Their address is Creek street, Brisbane, where they welcome visits from all persons interested in the goods they supply.

    JAMES CAMPBELL AND SONS, LTD.

    Although Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, Ltd., Creek-street, Brisbane, offer no Christmas specialities, a glance over their attractive showrooms in Creek-street discloses the fact that an immense business must be done to justify the holding of stock of such an array of goods. Yet the work is done without bustle and excitement, business moves quietly yet expeditiosly, and the best results are secured. Campbells, while specialising in builders' needs, which they handle from start to finish, including timber, joinery, roofing iron, glass, paints, etc., are also extensive importers of lines of interest to the glazier, farmer, and dairyman, such as fencing and barb wire, wire net- ting, agricultural tools, etc. The present oppressive weather impelled them to direct attention to their "Arabic" roof cooling composition, which it is claimed reduces the temperature of buildings from 20 to 30deg. To get the full benefit from it, it should be applied before the month of January. It is said that it does not injure the rain water in the slightest degree.

    GOLDEN WEDDINGS. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Menzies, of Ivy Villa, Whitehill-road, Ipswich, celebrated their golden wedding on September 18. In honour of the event they entertained a few of their old and intimate friends and relatives at a city cafe, which was beautifully decorated for the occasion with flowers and bunting. The afternoon passed happily and merrily, and after the dainty refreshments had been partaken of the health of the hearty couple was honoured. Congratulatory speeches were made by Messrs. Jas. Hargreaves, John Campbell, R. Menzies, jun., E. W. Hargreaves, T. Rose, and Crase, who all paid a high tribute to the sterling qualities and genial hospitality of the host and hostess, and expressed the hope that they might long be spared. Mr. Menzies, in the course of a response on behalf of his wife and himself, made some humorous references to the pioneer days, when there were no railways and practically no roads, and the journey between Bris- bane and Ipswich sometimes occupied two days. Mr. and Mrs. Menzies are both natives of Scotland, and came to Brisbane in the fifties. They were married by the late Rev. B. G. Wilson, at the resi- dence of the late Mr. Jas. Campbell, and Mrs. Campbell, then in Creek-street, on September 18, 1862. They remained in Brisbane till 1887, when they removed to Ipswich, where they have resided ever since. Their surviving family of three daughters, one son, and 15 grandchildren were all present at the festivity. The in- vited guests included : Mrs. Jas. Camp bell, Mr. and Mrs. John Campbell, Mr. Peter Campbell, Mr. and Mrs. A. Morrison and family, Mr. and Mrs. R. Menzies, jun., and family, Mr. and Mrs. A. Robinson and family, Mr. and Mrs. T. Morrison, Mr. and Mrs. J. Ferguson (Syd ney), Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Hargreaves, Mr. and Mrs. John Hargreaves, Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Hargreaves, Mr. and Mrs. T. Rose, Miss Cramb, Miss C. Macdonald , Mr. Parr, Mrs. and Miss M'Naught, Mr. and Mrs. Atkinson, Mrs. Barham, Mr. and Mrs. Jno. F. K. Brodribb, Mr. and Mrs. Crase, Mrs. Auld, Mr. and Mrs. J. War ren, Mr. H. Munro, Miss Munro. Mrs. Hancock, and Mrs. Pettigrew.

    Mrs. F. K. Brodribb entertained a party of old friends at her residence, Kurrowah, on September 10, in honour of the golden wedding of her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Campbell. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell came to this State in 1862, and though they resided for some years at intervals in Sydney the greater part of their married life has been spent in Queensland. They are very much respected by a large circle of friends, and those who assembled to do them honour conveyed their own congratulations and the best wishes of many distant friends. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell were also the recipients of many handsome tokens of good will. Of their family, three daughters survive—Mrs. Brodribb and Miss Campbell being present. Their two bonny little grandchildren, Masters Ken and Campbell Brodribb, and Mr. F. K. Brod ribb were also present at the interesting celebration. The guests were entertained in the dining-room at a "wedding" break- fast, the handsome wedding cake, being ornamented with golden favours, and the table with golden blossoms. Mrs. Brod ribb wore a beautiful gown of blue silk foulard, ornamented with insertion. Mrs. Campbell, handsome gown of soft black satin, with lace coat. Miss Campbell, dainty frock of purple silk, ornamented with ruchings to harmonise. Among their old friends who were able to exchange interesting reminiscences were Mr. and Mrs. Menzies (Ipswich), Mrs. Tom Petrie. Mrs. James Campbell, and Mr. P. Campbell. Other friends and relatives included Mrs. James Forsyth, Miss Petrie, and Mr. and Mrs. Crase.

    The annual picnic of Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, Ltd., took place on Saturday, under ideal weather conditions. The employees and their families, to the number of 900, were conveyed by the steamer Koopa to Bribie, where a most enjoyable day was spent. The firm and employees provide the picnic alternately. This year it was employees' outing, and they enter- tained as their guests Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Campbell, Mr. C. W. Campbell, Mr. V. F. J. Campbell, and Mr. John Campbell. The com- mittee comprised Messrs. M. Taylor (chairman), R. Holburton (secretary), W. Sanders (treasurer), J. Reid, W. Carey, D. Ellerman, J. Ryan, J. Renouf, W. Hayles, and !'. Ridings. Leaving town at 9 o'clock, a pleasant run was made , the rendezvous being reached at 11.30, and toys and lollies were distributed to the children as they went ashore. The picnickers at once got busy with hampers, &c., and as soon as the inner wants had been satisfied they set about to enjoy themselves as they pleased. Swings were erected, and were soon taxed to the utmost. Fishing also had many enthusiasts, and some fair catches were reported. Sports, which formed one of the chief attractions at previous picnics, were unavoidably done away with this year, but the island offered numerous other attractions, which more than compensated for the loss in this department. A start was made for home at 3 o'clock, and after a delightful trip town was reached at 6 o'clock, all being unanimous as to the success of the outing. During the day a band rendered selections of popular airs, which were much appreciated. Prior to the boat being made fast, Mr. G. P. Campbell (managing director) took the opportunity of congratulating the committee on the success attained. Mr. Taylor (chairman of committee) appropriately responded. Cheers were given for the directors, and also for the committee.

    MESSRS. JAMES CAMPBELL AND SONS.

    Established 60 years ago, the business now being carried on by James Campbell and Sons, Ltd., as builders' supply merchants, at Creek-street, Brisbane, and Albion, has reached a very gratifying stage in its growth. The late Mr. James Campbell established himself in 1854 on the present site as a plasterer, and aided later by his sons he built up a business which is now claimed to be the leading one of its kind in the State. The company operates largely as sawmillers and joinery manufacturers, and has extensive mills at Albion and three plants in other parts of the State. It owns building brick, firebrick, and pottery works at Albion, and the output of all departments is in strong demand. The 7-story warehouse in Creek-street accommodates stocks of all builders', plumbers', and painters' requirements, such as galvanised iron, ridging, tanks, baths, locks, hinges, white lead, linseed oil, colours, mixed house paints, roof paints, carriage paints, varnishes, gloss, and also general ironmongery, fencing wire, and wire netting. Campbell ready-to-erect houses for the country are also greatly in demand. Price lists of all lines are sent free on request.

    Henderson—Philp.

    A pretty wedding took place at St. Paul's Church yesterday. The bridegroom was Mr. William Arthur Henderson (son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Henderson) and the bride Miss Elsie Maud Philp (daughter of the Hon. Robert Philp). The Rev. R. Moorhead Legate officiated. The church was prettily decorated with greenery and white flowers. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a beautiful gown of ivory crepe de Chine over charmeuse, veiled in fine shadow lace; the bodice was softly draped with the lace and arranged with transparent yoke, and the skirt made with draped tunic of lace.

    She also wore a handsome embroidered veil and wreath of orange blossoms and white heather. A shower bouquet, partly composed of white heather, completed the toilette. Miss Ivy Philp (sister of the bride) acted as bridesmaid, and wore a dainty draped frock of a delicate shade of cream crepe de Chine, arranged with a gracefully cut tunic and finished with sash ends in pastel tints of apricot and blue, the sleeves and collar being out- lined with brown fur. Her Victorian bonnet was of pale blue satin and showed a crown and lining of apricot crepe de Chine, trimmed with a band of fur and tiny berries. Dr. John Hardie acted as best man. After the ceremony the guests were entertained by Hon. and Mrs. Robert Philp at a reception and wedding break- fast at their residence, Mallow, Toowong. The reception rooms were charm- ingly decorated with yellow chrysanthemums and ferns, and the small tables on the veranda (where a wedding tea was served by a staff from the Cafe Eschenhagen) were ornamented with white lilies, tuberoses, and chrysanthemums. The usual toasts were honoured. "The Bride and Bridegroom" was proposed by Mr. For- syth, and responded to by the bridegroom, who proposed "The Bridesmaids." Dr. John Hardie responded on their behalf. Mr. G. Campbell proposed "The Host and Hostess," and Mr. Philp responded; and Dr. Jackson proposed the health of Mr. and Mrs. Henderson. Mrs. Robert Philp wore a gown of black crepe de Chine, relieved with cream shadow lace and touches of nattier blue, the same colour being introduced in a high mount in her black velvet hat. Mrs. Henderson (mother of the bridegroom) wore a gown of black silk and a black hat. Miss Philp wore a frock of cream silk crepe and a black hat with white lancer plumes. Miss Doris Philp wore a frock of electric blue crepe merle, relieved with belt of deep cosmos pink silk and a hat of Ottoman silk relieved with berries and fur. Mrs. Robert Henderson (sister of the bride)

    wore a toilette of vieux rose silk crepe and a white hat. Mrs. Forsyth (aunt of the bride) wore a gown of black crepe de Chine, relieved with floral ribbon, and a hat of Irish crochet encircled with ostrich feathers and finished with deep red rose. Miss Henderson (sister of the bridegroom) wore a frock of navy blue silk crepe and a small black velvet hat

    relieved with maize coloured ribbon. Miss Kitty Henderson (sister of the bridegroom) wore a frock of French grey silk colienne and a hat in dull shade of vieux rose. Mrs. Charles Philp wore a gown of navy blue crepe de Chine, and a hat of beetroot-pink satin with brim of tete de negre velvet and pink ospreys. Mrs. James Philp (grandmother of the bride) wore a gown of rich black silk and a black lace bonnet. Mesdames John Philp and Donaldson (aunts of the bride) wore black toilettes and black hats. Mrs. Aplin (aunt of the bride) wore a Wedgwood blue gown with overdress of black lace and a black hat. The invited guests included Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Henderson, the Misses Henderson, Mrs. James Campbell, sen., Mr. and Mrs. James Forsyth, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Henderson, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Philp, Dr. and Mrs. Jackson, Dr. and Mrs. L'Estrange, Mrs. Aplin, Mr. and Mrs. Victor Campbell, Miss Hood, Mr. and Mrs. R. D. Kennedy, Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Campbell, Mr. and Mrs. T. Bird, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Campbell, Mr. and Mrs. and Miss Donaldson, Mrs. John Philp, Miss Philp, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Campbell, Mr. Lees, Mr. and Mrs. E. Munro, Messrs. L. M. and Neville Henderson. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Henderson subsequently left for the South. Mrs. Henderson wore a blue

    tweed coat and skirt, and a smart close-fitting hat of heron-blue velvet with crown of floral velvet in shades of cherry and brown, finished with white ostrich mount. The presents were numerous and handsome. The bride's and bridesmaids' dresses were made and designed by Mrs. Janet Walker, and most of the millinery described was designed

    by Allan and Stark.

    JAMES CAMPBELL AND SONS. The firm of James Campbell and Sons, Limited, timber merchants and suppliers of all requisites for building, has established a large connection with contractors in different parts of the State. The efficient, business-like methods of the firm, together with the straight-forward manner of doing business, have done a good deal towards securing the confidence that exists between them and the builders. The head office and iron-mongery and general supply store is situated in Creek-street, Brisbane, but the firm has various branch mills and stores in diferent parts of the country, which thus facilitates effective and efficient business being done. 'They stock all kinds of timber, which may be had made into doors, windows, &c. The supply of nails, screws, painting materials, and plumbing materials is an extensive one. Indeed, the whole of the requisites for a complete house or for additions, can be obtained from the firm by order, and they claim that the prices are reasonable in every department. They are agents for the well-known prepared Berger's paints, which are British made, and are "just the thing" for the man who desires to do a little painting work at his own home during the holidays.

    Citronella and the Fruit Fly.

    Mr. Campbell, manger of Brisbane Soap Co., writes, re citronella and the fruit fly: Sir,—I can fully bear out the statement made by Mr. D. Jones, that citronella does attract the fruit fly. For many years we have been using large quantities of this oil, and it is a very usual sight to see several fruit flies around the bung of the large drum in which the oil is imported. There is no doubt citronella has a strong attraction for the fruit fly, whilst it repels the mosquito.

    JAMES CAMPBELL AND SONS, LTD.

    Campbell "Redicut" houses are well-known throughout Queensland. Under the "Redicut" system all the materials for wood buildings are supplied according to stock plans or the designs of the purchaser. The frame is cut, fitted, and marked ready for instant re-erection, and sufficient other material, such as timber, doors, windows, French lights, veranda railing, roofing iron, ridging, spouting,

    locks, hinges, nails, paints, and paint brushes, is sent in ample quantity to complete the structure. The system is deservedly popular, as it insures the prompt erection of a home of modern design and construction with best quality materials at lowest prices. The exhibit of Messrs. James Campbell and Sons, Ltd., at the National Show, includes two attractive model redicut houses, one displaying the frame of the house and the other the complete house. There are also on view drawings of their 30 designs. Other items of interest to the home builder include "beaver board," the wall and ceiling board that is becoming so popular owing to the beautiful

    panel effects to be obtained by its use. Another feature is Berger's paints of British production. Bergers make a paint for every purpose—their widely known "B.P." for outside use, "Matone," a flat enamel paint for inside, structural, and roof paint, barn paint, waggon paint, and "Enamelac," a high-grade enamel, bath enamel, &c. Campbell's are also showing fine samples of the joiner's art—

    the product of their extensive works at Albion—and samples of the work of their brick, drainpipe, and pottery works

    at Albion.

    ON DUTY IN THE DESERT.

    Trooper F. B. Campbell writes to his mother, Mrs. J. M. Campbell, Kensington, Russell street, Toowoomba:—" We shifted from our old camp about a month ago, with all our horses, and are now on desert patrol work. We expect to get into touch with the enemy at any time. I was out with our chaps on Saturday, about 20 miles through terribly heavy sand, with occasional oases with date palms growing, and water at a foot or two, so manarged all right. Could not send any mail lately, as we were moving camp so often. Can see the canal from here. We have a high camp and there is a fairly cool breeze all day. I have a fine New South Wales horse in great condition, and he needs to be, as we ride about 18st. here, with our gear on. I am keeping well ; in fact, most of us stand the heat well. The tucker is pretty good, and with the 2/ a day, and a canteen we make a 'do' of it. Received your parcel with silk shirts, socks, &c., which were most acceptable. We went out about 3 a.m. on Saturday. It was warm, and I only wore a singlet and breeches. Beyond a spell, from 9 to 10, we were not out of the saddle for more than a few minutes. Got back at 8 p.m. Some were sick from the water, which was a bit sweet, but all were right after a day's spell. Our horses stood the heavy sand marvellously well.

    Mine danced for two miles, when on the way home. I had to fall to the rear with a covering party, and with the rifle and ammunition he gave me a rough time, but once in the troop again he walked well. We have mess-sheds here, also travelling cookers, so have a fairly good camp, with double tents to keep the heat out, but I think the summer is about over now."

    At a later date Trooper Campbell writes :— "Moved to another camp last night. I received your second Toowoomba parcel. The eatables are most acceptable, as we are out every second or third night and unless we have cash we must eat bully beef and biscuit, as bread is not on hand. A hostile 'plane flew over yesterday very high up, but did not lay any eggs here, although it did at other camps, I believe. I have been un- able to send any mail away from our regiment for weeks, so am trying a field post office here. Had an impromptu concert here last night in the Y.M.C.A. tent. We were lucky about five weeks ago to receive a lot of gift stuff, mostly from New South Wales—all handy things, nearly all eatables."

    LATE MRS. JAMES CAMPBELL.

    Shortly after sunset last Sunday evening a long and useful life was brought to a close by the death of Mrs. James Campbell, widow of the founder of the well-known firm of James Campbell & Sons, at the age of 89 years. The deceased lady was born at Stirling in Scotland in the year 1829, so she had lived in the reigns of no fewer than five English sovereigns. Mrs. Campbell came to Moreton Bay with her husband in the year 1853— six years before Separation—so she had lived in Brisbane since its foundation, watching its progress and development. Of late years Mrs. Campbell had been unable to take any prominent part in the life of the city, but in the days when Brisbane was young her generosity and womanly kindness were exhibited very extensively, and there were probably fewer better known or more widely loved women in the city. Her family consist- ed of the late Hon. J. D. Campbell, the late Mr. J. M. Campbell, the late Mr. H. E. Campbell, who died in London, Messrs. George P. Campbell, and Charles W. Campbell who are directors of the firm of James Campbell & Sons, Mrs. James Forsyth, Mrs. William Aplin. Another daughter, the first wife of Sir Robert Philp, died some years ago.

    MR. JOHN CAMPBELL.

    A DIAMOND JUBILEE.

    On September 10 Mr. and Mrs. John Campbell, of Woody Point, celebrated their diamond wedding, when members of the Campbell family gathered at their residence to commemorate the event. On the last day of the month Mr. Campbell,was also the recipient of congratulations on the attainment of his 85th birthday.

    Born in Perth, Scotland, in 1837. and educated in his native city, Mr. Campbell came to Australia at the early age of 17 years. After a brief stay in Brisbane he went to Sydney, where he re-sided for some time. While there he erected many large buildings, including the Post Office Chambers in Pitt-Street and numerous establishments in Hunter street, which still occupy a place among the prominent edifices of the city. For many years he was also interested in the building trade of Queensland, where the buildings erected by him include the South Brisbane Town Hall and the present building of the National Bank of Australia. Among many personal anecdotes Mr. Campbell takes great pleasure in relating the following:—While visiting Sydney a few years ago he was looking at the workmen remodelling the Post Office Chambers for the Commonwealth Government, when, in the course of a conversation, the contractor for the work remarked to Mr. Campbell that he wished the man who had erected the edifice would come to help him pull it down. Mr. Campbell politely replied that he was the desired one. Perhaps the strongest trait in Mr. Campbell's character was his aversion to publicity. Though repeatedly requested to stand for political honours, he invariably declined the numerous invitations. An omnivorous reader, his favourite author was his country's national poet, Robert Burns. Possessed of an unusually retentive memory, Mr. Campbell can still quote offhand numerous selections from Burns's works.

    Mr Campbell married a Miss Margaret Scott, also of Scotland. One of his brothers was the late Mr. James Campbell, of the well-known firm of James Campbell and Son, and he is the father of Mrs. F. K. Brodribb, of Kurrowah, South Brisbane. He had three sisters—the late Mrs. John Munro, of Brisbane, the late Mrs. George Stupart, of Maryborough, and Mrs. Tom Petrie, who resides at North Pine. His other brother was the late Mr. Peter M. Campbell, of Bowen Hills. Mr. John Campbell has three daughters, all of whom are living. His only son was the late Mr. Colin Campbell. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell were married in 1862 by the Rev. James Love, father of Dr. Wilton Love, of Wickham terrace.

    RECOLLECTIONS OF HAMILTON.

    TO THE EDITOR.

    Sir,-In Miss Isobel Hannah's notes I am very interested, as they remind me of my young days, when I walked along the Breakfast Creek road, 60 years ago, to school. At that time many blacks were camped along the river. People now-a-days cannot credit it, but such was the case. The Hamilton Hotel was kept by Miss Warren Her son, George, and I went to school together, and I always understood it was called the Hamilton, after she married Sam Hamilton. There was another hotel just opposite to the Hamilton rocks, named the Mount Pleasant Hotel, kept by Owen Day. That place afterwards became the property of John Cameron,, one of the early auctioneers of Brisbane, who built a residence on the site that was the first hotel in the Hamilton district. I would like Miss Hannah to give, if possible, the history of Bartley's Folly, and of the man named Lowden who cleared the hill upon which Mr. W. Hemmant, one-time Treasurer of Queensland, built his residence. It was stated at the time that after Lowden had cleared the hill he found out that the property did not belong to him. The enumeration of his follies, no doubt, would make very interesting reading. My home in these glorious days was between Dickson's, Toorak, and D Hemmant s, and was named Toombul, after which the district was named. I came to Brisbane from Sydney in a steamer named the Boomerang in the early fifties. Brisbane in those days was a very small place, and had a good many swamps around it. Where they are building the new Town Hall there was a large waterhole, and the writer of these notes will remember the place as long as he remains on this earth, because he was nearly drowned in it. There was no swamp, but about 9ft. of water. No doubt that is the reason Mr. M'Master was against building the hall there, as he and others with him thought there was " no bottom " I trust Miss Hannah will continue these notes of the early days. Reading them makes one feel that he is living his early

    days over again.

    -I am, sir, &c

    C. BOLDEN.

    CHESTER WHITE PIGS.

    NEW BREED IMPORTED.

    Along with her valuable consignment of Aberdeen Angus cattle, the motorship HaurakI brought to Sydney several stud pigs which should be of peculiar Interest to Australian

    breeders.

    The consignment of 10 comprised eight Duroc Jerseys, a breed already favourably known here, and two Chester White boars, repre- sentatives of a breed new to this State. The 10 animals were bought in Canada for Queensland breeders. They are of different strains, and most of them were railed for two or three thousand miles before being taken aboard ship. Though they were 60 days at sea, they arrived at Sydney in splendid condition.

    One of the Duroc Jerseys, a sow, has been bought by Mr. Leo Delroy, of Murgon, Queensland, The rest will be shared by Messrs Brown Brothers, of Mooroombin, Toogoolawah, and Mr. P. V. Campbell, of Lawn Hill, Lamington. The latter breeders, who are well known among Queensland's prominent exhibitors, will each take one Chester White boar. Two sows of the same breed, which failed to reach Vancouver in time to join the Hauraki, will follow later. The pigs will remain in quarantine in Sydney for several days, and will then be shipped to Brisbane.

    The Chester White is described as an excellent bacon pig. it has plenty of length and depth, good conformation, and, apart from a slight "loppiness" about the ears, might be a white Duroc Jersey. White pigs have never been very popular in Australia because of their liability to sun-scald, but the Chesters are said to withstand oven the hottest sun, Mr. Campbell intends to cross the boar with Berkshires, and to show the progeny at the next Brisbane exhibition. Later a strain of pure whites will be added to his

    stud.

    An Unusual Visitor

    An unusual visitor to Breakfast Creek on Saturday was a black swan, which hovered over the sawmill of James Campbell and Sons, Ltd., for a time, and then alighted on the creek. It remained there until it was frightened away by some boys. Alderman C. W. Campbell said that it was the first time he had seen a black swan on the creek, although he had seen them at the mouth of the river. The swan might have escaped from the Botanic

    Gardens.

    ON ROAD TO CENTURY

    JAMES CAMPBELL AND SONS

    Closely identified with the progress of Queensland for 82 years, James Campbell and Sons (Pty.), Ltd., last night celebrated the joint service of

    more than 100 years of Mr. G. P. Campbell and Mr. C. W. Campbell, sons of the founder, Mr. James Campbell. The story of the firm's long and successful career is one of Queensland's commercial pioneering.

    Mr. James Campbell, who arrived in Brisbane on May 28, 1853, in the sailing ship John Fielden, started a small shop in George Street, which was replaced in 1883 by a two-storey building in Creek Street, on the site of the present premises. In March, 1882, he took into partnership his two sons, the late Mr. J. O. and Mr. J. M. Campbell. The business then became known as James Campbell and Sons. In 1896 it was converted into a limited liability com pany. The first sawmill was erected in 1877 at Capalaba. In the late seventies and eighties the company had a fleet of sailing ves- sels trading to northern Queensland, playing an outstanding part in the development of the north. Since 1876 it has controlled 11 sawmills. The pottery was purchased on September 12, 1885, and in 1886 a new concrete warehouse was constructed at the back of the old premises. The progress of the business made further extension necessary, and new ware- house premises were built in 1909.

    PASSED HALF-CENTURY More than 250 employees and friends were present last night when Messrs. G. P. and C. W. Campbell were presented with reading chairs and lamps as a memento of the occasion. The attendance included several employees who have been 50 years in the firm's service. The toast of the guests of honour was proposed by the chairman (Mr. T. H. Kelly), who paid a tribute to the two "worthy sons of Mr. James Campbell, pioneer of industry and founder of the firm." Mr. W. Sanders, in making the pre- sentations, paid a tribute to Mr. G. P. Anderson as administrator of the city office, and Mr. C. W. Campbell as one of the State's foremost timber experts. The guests of honour responded, Mr. C. W. Campbell remarking that few firms had attained the age of James Campbell and Sons, and it was to be hoped that the firm would reach its century. Other toasts were "The Company" (Messrs. C. E. Lever and A. E. Hoskin, responded to by Messrs. V. P. J. Campbell, J. D. Bell, and G. N. Campbell), "Past and Present Employees" (Messrs. H. J. Campbell, E. C. Campbell, and J. G. Campbell, responded to by the oldest employee, Mr. W. Robins), "Absent Friends" (Mr. A. Adsett), "The Press" (Mr. H. J. Tozer), and "The Chairman" (Mr. C. W. Campbell).

    ERROL

    GEOFFREY

    STUART

    JAMES

    HARRY

    PIONEERING has been a feature of Mr. Errol Campbell's life but, unlike his grandfather, he helped pioneer Queensland aviation. At 17 he gained experience with the Australian Flying Corps towards the end of World War I. In 1919. with Captain

    Frank Smith, MC, DPC. he flew in the first peace loan flight through Queensland country areas. Flying through the small Queensland towns, the pair had to find new landing grounds as well as make smooth landings. Their only mishap was at Gympie, where their plane crash landed. In 1920, Mr. Campbell and Lieut. A. R. McComb flew through Charleville, Cunna nulla, Augathella, Toowoomba, and Inglewood on another peace loan flight.

    They distributed pamphlets, made speeches, and raised a large sum of money during these trips. Tall and athletic, Mr. Campbell was also a champion motor bike rider and motorist in the 1920's. An all round sportsman, he's a life member of Virginia Golf Club, and is interested in farming. He joined the Albion Sawmills after World War I, worked his way up to succeed his father, Mr. C. W. Campbell, as mill manager. Glassware expert YOUNGEST son of Mr. G. P. Campbell, Mr. Harry Campbell is the manager' of the company's branch at Crosby Road, Albion. He's the glassware expert among the Campbell grandsons, and also has had experience as a traveller for the company and at the Creek Street office. He is president of the Australian Glass Association. Mr. Campbell joined the AIF as a private in World War 11, and served in the Middle East and New Guinea, where he was pro moted to the rank of lieutenant. In addition to his city home at Clayfield, he and his wife spend much of their time at Caloundra. He's holidaying there at the present, but took a day off from fishing to come to Brisbane to attend James Campbell and Sons centen ary celebrations on May 28. Experienced in cattle HEADING the transport and despatch depart ment of James Campbell and Sons to-day is Mr. Stuart Campbell, youngest son of Mr. James Dunmore Campbell. A well-known and lively raconteur, he is reluctant to tell his own story. But if he could make no

    other claim to fame, the company's staff say he would 'go down in his' company's history' as the man who organised the transport lift which carried children from all over Brisbane, and as far away as Redcliffe to the centenary children's entertainment at the Exhibion on May 7 — and saw that each child got home on time. Before joining the firm in 1923, he gained office experience with Rich and Company, and country ex perience in the cattle industry, both as jackeroo, and later co-owner of a property outside Taroom. Friends describe him as a keen tennis player. He also plays golf at Royal Queensland. He and his wife have their home at Clayfield. Distinguished War record LONG and distinguished war record goes to the credit of Mr. James Campbell, who joined the R.A.N. as a lieutenant in 1939. and rose to the rank of lieut. commander before he returned to civilian life in 1946. He served in British waters, in Iceland, and in the Mediterranean, and was at four famous landings — Dieppe, Sicily Italy, and Panterlero. To-day. Mr. Campbell satisfies his love of the sea By deep-sea fishing and boat ing at week-ends at his home at Cleveland. Before the war, he was noted for his sailing prowess, and won several all Australian skiff titles. Mr. Campbell started his career with his grandfather's firm as office boy in the Creek Street office in 1920. Now he's at Creek Street again, but in the years be tween he has had wide experience in many branches of the business. He worked in the Albion sawmills and was a traveller for the company for many years. With his wife he runs a farm at Cleveland and dubs farming and deep-sea fish ing as his chief hobbies.

    Redicut Homes, James Campbell & Sons, 192X
    Campbell & Sons Pty Ltd was one of Brisbane's oldest builders' merchants, established in the mid 1850's. By the late 1800s they firm had created a niche in the Queensland market for ready-to-erect homes which were pre-cut and erected in their Albion timberyard, disassembeled, marked according to a detailed plan and packed with all necessary hardware and finishes for transportation to the customer, who could either erect it himself or engage a Campbell & Sons construction crew as part of the package. This way, Campbell homes were erected all over Queensland and even overseas in New Guinea and other territories. The method was later emulated by Brown & Broad in their Newstead range of homes, as illustrated in a previous catalogue. This publication from the 1920s contains the typical range of bungalows and gabled houses from the very basic, two-room "Beerburrum" cottage to the substantial "Longreach" homestead complete with worker's accommodation and outbuildings.

    CAMPBELL-SPARKES. Masses of choice white flowers decorated the interior of St. Augustine's Church of England, Hamilton, on April 14, when an intereesting wedding was solemised. The bridegroom was Mr. Errol Charles Camp- bell (eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Campbell Clayfield) and the bride was Miss Zoe Eblin Sparkes (youngest daughter of the late Mr. Alonzo Sparkes and Mrs. A. Sparkes, Hamilton). The Rev. J. Brodie Armstrong officiated, and Mr. Eric Sparkes gave his sister away. Her dainty wedding gown was of ivory mariette over satin, the bodice having a deep horizontal panel of Indian hand-made lace, the same beautiful lace being used in a panel rouud the bottom of the skirt, over which fell from the waistline four circular flounes of mariette. The court train, which was attached to the shoulders with posies of silk flowers, was also of ivory mariette adorned with silk embroideries, tiny ivory and silver flowers, and touches of orange blossom. Her long veil of hand made Belgian lace had a double fold at the back, and across the front were two rows ot orange blossoms, terminating in clusters at each side, and she carried a shower bouquet composed of Cattleya or- chids and white roses tied with several narrow satin streamers. The Misses Lyla Howard and Ella Campbell (sister of the bridegroom) were bridesmaids, and the little Misses Pauline Barnes and Yvonne Sparkes (nieces of the bride) were also in attendance. All the maids were frocked alike is pervenche blue mariette, fashioned with long-waisted bodices, and showing vandyked flounces of fine silver lace on the skirts, outlined with trails of hand-made flowers in blue, silver, and deep rose. Single large velvet flowers in deep rose were worn on the shoulders, and turban swathes of blue and silver tri- cotine completed their toilettes They carried Early Victorian posies of mauve water lilies and red rosebuds tied with narrow silver streamers. Mr. Jack Reid was best man, and Mr. Allan Campbell was groomsman. At the conclusion of the ceremony a reception was held at the re- sidence ot the bride's mother (Tavinghi, Hamilton). Myriads of multi-coloured electric lights illuminated the garden, and flags enclosed the verandas, while a pro- fusion of dahlias and roses in all hues beautified the reception rooms. The wed- ding dejeuner was served by a staff from Finney's in a marquee, which was erect- ed on the tennis court. The decorative scheme was carried out in pink and blue streamers radiating from a gilt basket filled with pink roses suspended in the middle of the marquee. Pink roses, in tall crystal vases, and trails of pink antignum and pouffes of pink tulle adorned the tables while dainty pink place cards marked each guest's place. Later, dancing was enjoyed by the younger members of the party. Miss Emmie Stewart supplying the dance music. Mrs. A. Sparkes re- ceived the guests in a gown of lavender mariette featuring a ceinture of deep violet panne velvet, from which fell godets. also of velvet, in a deep violet shade, outlined in lavender beads.

    HISTORIC HOME IS NOW SCHOOL

    Roslyn House

    By FIRMIN McKlNNON

    OF recent years the maintenance of large houses and grounds has become on expensive undertaking, so it is not surprising that several of Brisbane's old homes, particularly those that had extensive grounds, as most of the old homes had, have been purchased by the different churches for schools. The same evolution, from home to school, has happened in other capital cities in the Commonwealth and also in Great Britain. Among the old Brisbane homes that have become schools is Roslyn, now a part of St. Margaret's School at Clayfield, the property of the Church of England. As the school advanced the Church also purchased Mooloomburram, which adjoined Roslyn. It was the property of Mr. Andrew Petrie, who, for some years, represented Toombul in the Legislative Assembly. "Roslyn," however, is much the older building. Roslyn was built in the early sixties for Mr. Patrick Durack. first owner of Thylungra station, and father of the Duracks who later opened up the Kimberley country in Western Australia. After passing through other hands, either as owners or tenants, Roslyn became the home of Mr. Frederick Horwood, who named it after a former home in England. About the turn of the century the property was bought by the late Mr. John Dunmore Campbell, afterwards Minister for Railways, and one of the sons of the founder of James Campbell and Sons, the oldest firm in Brisbane still trading under the family name. He changed the name to Donatello. After his death the property was purchased by the Church of England, in 1910, for school purposes.

    When greater room space and larger playing fields were needed the Church added the adjoining property of Mooloomburram. The comblned houses and grounds gave the school considerable accommodation and extensive playing fields. A daughter of the late Mr. J. D. Campbell was the late Mrs. J. D. Story, wife of the Vice-Chancellor of the University. The Campbell family is related also to the family of the late Sir Robert Philp and the late Mr. Edwin Munro, formerly a well-known pastoralist, who lived for many years at Clayfield.
