LEPROSY-A REASSURING STATE-I

MENT. ' ' '

Mr. Tozer, In reply/toi à question raised on the health vote" last./oveplng, made some interesting statements" regarding-1 leprosy In Queensland«' KHe'said :-The^ board In New South Wales reported-that they did not regard the increase there in leprosy as serious, as it was only when the reporting of the cases was made compulsory by law that the friends and medical attendants of the sufferers noti- fied the board. That was precisely the case in Queensland, where an Act had been passed making the reporting of. the cases compulsory. On the 1st January, 1S94, there were thirty-six cases isolated In New South Wales, and of these only two were coloured patients, the rest being whites. Was it not a matter for very great congiatulation that while there were thirty-four white patients segregated in New South Wales for leprosy there were only six whites in Queensland Isolated as suffeiers from tubercular leprosy, while there, were not more than six coloured patients at Fri- day Island. The , latter had been gathered together over a period of years. The number of cases in Queensland was certalhly decreasing of late. No doubt there weie in all communities cases of leprosy, but Queensland was certainly not more afflicted with the disease than any other portion of the world. There was a most unreasonable panic about leprosy. Science had demonstrated that there was no known instance of con- tagion from leprosy. Segregation hadj however, been proceeded with in Queens- land, but with the exception of a boy the other cases at Dunwich must have been of from_six to »twelve years' stand- ing. There was no need to fear that the colony was being overrun with leprosy.

CASTLEMAINE BREWERY COM-

PANY.

The sixteenth ordinary general meet- ing of the Castlemaine Brewery and Quinlan, Gray, and Co., Brisbane, Limited, was held at the company's office, Queen-street, yesterday. The Hon. F. H. Hart was in the chair, and there was a fair attendance of share- holders. ' The chairman, In moving the adoption of the directors' report, said that he regretted not having a mor* favourable one to lay before the share- holders. During the last three months there had been signs of an improvement in the mercantile branch of the business; but as regarded the brewery they had had to meet, and were still meeting, with severe competition and very reduced rates. To this and losses arising from their tied houses were due the poor re- sults he had to put before them. The general expenditure had had careful con- sideration, and reductions had taken place. From existing circumstances they were of the opinion that there must be still further reductions. It was hoped that the company's business would benefit by the gradual improvement of trade In Queensland. The Hon. E. B. Forrest briefly seconded the adoption of the report, which was carried unani- mously, and the meeting then ter-

minated.

ILLNESS OF MR. JUSTICE

HARDING.  

His Honour Mr. Justice Harding was somewhat better yesterday morning, though Still seriously unwell. In order that the trial of the Roma timber case might not be prejudiced by his illness his Honour decided to conclude his summing up, and put the case finally to the jury. The jury and counsel were accordingly ad- mitted to the Judge's chambers, and his Honour finished his summing up, and put the necessary questions to them. The effort severely taxed the Judge's strength, but happily no injurious effect followed. His Honour suffered an acute pain during these proceedings, but at a later period of the day he was reported to be much easier. Late last night his symptoms were less serious, and though still In a critical condition, he was said to be progressing favourably.

THE ROMA TIMBER CASE.

The last stage but one in the Roma timber case was reached yesterday. As stated elsewhere, his Honour Mr, Justice Harding concluded his summing up, and the jury retired to deliberate on their verdict. They arrived at an agreement at about half-past 3 o'clock, when his Honour Mr. Justice Real, with the con- sent of the parties, consented to take their findings. These amounted to a verdict for the plaintiff, Kinivan, for £188 16s. 4d. The amount claimed was £215 odd. Mr. Justice Real declined to enter judgment, and adjourned the mo- tion for judgment for a week in order that if possible it might be, dealt with by his Honour Mr. Justice Harding.

SOUTH COAST TIME-TABLE.^

The proposal to do away with the early train on Saturday evenings to Logan Village, Jimboomba, Woodhill, Glen- eagle, and Beaudesert Is met with the most pronounced dissatisfaction (writes our Logan and Albert correspondent), as thlB was the only day on which residents living away from the railway line could manage to get home, or part af the way home, by daylight. This tyould also bring the speed of the fast train to Southport on that evening âovfn to the level of an ordinary goods train, be- tween Rocklea and Bethania. Mr. Plunkett, M L A., is In communication with the General Trafile Manager on the subject, so as to prevent the proposed

alteiation. i

The " S M Herald" states that a pas-, senger by the AU S.N. Company's steamer Katoomba, which arrived-from the New Hebrides on Tuesday last, feaid : -" There is something in the wind, "and a veiy little time will prove it. Annexa- tion either by the British or the French is on the tapis. Statistics are being complied by the principal French people and forwarded to Noumea. On the other hand, Admiral Bridge has had prepared statistics showing the British interests in the islands, and the captain of the Katoomba is making an independent report. A * round robin' has been for-' winded to the French home authorities asking for immediate annexation.", (The inquiry suggests Itself whether the visit of the French Consul to Bundaberg the other day may not have been Influenced by the necessity for a quiet chat'hy wire with thf officials in Noumea on sor^e

The Rev. Joseph Cook left Sydney for Melbourne on Tuesday evening. After delivering a course of lectures there and in Adelaide, he will come on to Brisbane From here he will go on to China and Japan.

Mr. Davitt told an audience in Sydney the other day that the climate of Queens- land was incomparable with that of any other countiy he had visited ; but he hastened to add that the sceneiy of Port Jackson was incomparable with that of any other harbour he had ever seen.

The seventh lecture of the present series On agriculture was given by Mr. C. C. Mair at the Technical College last night. It was said that there is no animal so generally kept, so little under- stood, and so neglected as the pig, while if given facilities in domestication for the exercise of its natural instincts, there was nd animal more systematically clean in its habits. It would thrive in almost any climate, and eat and extract nourish- ment from almost lany sort of food or garbage. Its sensa of smell was strong, but that of taste 'did not seem to be fastidious. In limited quantity, with Improved blood and judicious treatment, this was the cheapest way in which a first-class animal food could be produced. In America this industry ranks with wheat and cotton as an agricultural ex- port. The pig gave a very quick re- turn, and afforded great facilities for its improvement through selection, since the average number of young from a female before she reached 2 years of age was twenty-four, while with cattle and horses there should _be none befoie that age. As with other" animals, the pig was very much what we made him, and kind, con- siderate treatment was one of the chief factors in his profitable production. Pigs should not be allowed to waste even cast-away food, or to overgorge them- selves ; it ought to be economised for them. The ensilage principle, in a simple wdy, was recommended for preserving green stuff. Only pigs with improved breeding in them were profitable tp rear Some of'our enterprising curing estab- lishments, ,by Importing highly-bred ani- mals within the last few years, had practically demonstrated this to the far- mers of Southern Queensland Details regarding breeding, feeding, and treat- ment generally were given,

A crowded audience, three-fourths of which was composed of sailors from the H.M.S. Orlando,, H.M S Karrakatta, Talisman, Medea, Macmillan, and Jenny Harkness, assembled at the Sailor's Mis- sler) Hall for the usual Wednesday social. The programme was in the hands of Mrs. G. H Buzacott and her mission class of girls ftom the City Tabernacle, and was most ably carried ouf, much to the delight of the audience The principal items were Haydn's Toy Symphony, by all the members of the class, and a dialogue by sixteen mem- bers, " Twenty years' hence," which caused much amusement. Other musical items, vocal and instrumental, were con- tributed by Mrs. Buzacott, Mrs. Wheeler, and) Migs Silvester. The chair was occu- pied by Mr. G. H. Buzacott, who, on opening the meeting, briefly addressed the ;men. The sailors contributed, five iterns-namely, songs by Messrs J. W. Apter, W. Birch (Medea), and J. Solomon (H.M.S. Orlando) ; Shanty (assisted by all the sailors), by J. Smith ; and High- land, fling, by E. M'Neil (Macmillan). The ladles also kindly provided light re- freshments, and after the mission class, Mia. Buzacott, and the chairman had been formally thanked, the sailors, to show their appreciation of the evening's entertainment, gave three lusty cheeta

for the ladles.

Iklr. Manson, of Messrs. Renard, Man- son, and Co, displays a considerable ampunt of'ingenuity in bringing before tho« public the continental and other goods fcirjwhlch his firm are the local agents, goods for which his firm are the agents.

A very sudden death occurred at Bullamon woolshed on the evening of the I2th Instant, says the '. Dalby Herald." A man named Oliver Malyn, employed as a shed hand, was sitting at a table talking to some of the other men, when he suddenly fell from his seat. On being picked up he was found to be stone dead. He had been doing his usual work on that day, and up to the time of his death nothing was noticed wrong with him. The deceased was about 60 years of age, and had been employed at the shed for four consecuttve seasons. Con- stable Horan, from Mungindi, instituted inquiries, and the usual order was made for the burial by J. S. Norton, Esq., J.P. Heart disease is supposed to be the Cause

of death.

Glass of all descriptions, paperhangings, picture and decorative mouldings, are offered in great profusion, and In the latest de- signs. In this connection it is interest- ing to note that Messrs. Campbell and ¡Sons find a decided Improvement in business generally. Their large saw, joinery, and planing mills at Breakfast Creek are full of orders for some months to come, and they have found it neces- sary to add to their electric light In- stallation a set of arc lamps to allow the three large steam cranes to handle" logs expedltlously and safely at night. The firm's brick and pottery works are also better supplied with orders than for the past three years. Messrs. Campbell and Sons have an unbroken business record in Brisbane from the year 1854, and their testimony to so decided an im- provement is worthy of note.

A South Brisbane correspondent writes :-The Musgrave Park is prac- tically the only place to which residents 1 of South Brisbane can conveniently

send their children for an airing, and. It Is largely availed of for that purpose. Complaints, however, have reached us that, owing to the large gates being fre- quently kept locked, nurseglrls iru charge of young children In perambulators are unable to get admission. It is stated that keys of these gates have, been given to two nurseglrls, and the only times the others are able to make use of the park Is when these two see fit to avail them- selves of it. In addition to that, they have to leave when these custodians of the keys determine to go home. It Is to be hoped that those who are respons- ible for the management of the park will put an end to this state of affairs, and make arrangements whereby ac- cess to the park may be obtained af any

time during the day.
