    Notes 
    • 1922-07-22 - NORTHERN QUEENSLAND. - SUCCESSFUL SETTLER'S OPINION.

      BRISBANE, Friday.—Mr. J. Weatherburn, who 12 years ago relinquished his calling as a coal miner at Newcastle and sought his fortunes on the land in Queensland, was a visitor to the "Department of Agriculture" today. He said the assertion that North Queensland was not a fit place for white people to live in was far from being the truth. He went to Peeramon, on the Atherton scrub plateau, in 1910 and took up a scrub selection of 80 acres. He had little knowledge of agriculture and but little Capital, but he worked with such good effect that, assisted by his wife. in but a comparatively short while he was well on the road to success, and finally, four years ago, he was in a position to lease his farm and live privately. Mr. Weatherburn said that others in the district had done even better than he, but they had more capital to start with. Mr. Weatherburn is now proceeding to Newcastle, where he may enter into business.

      1923 - Joe & Family went back and had an Orchard at Dora Creek, NSW

      *6.12.1923 The Gosford Times and Wyong District Advocate - Dora Creek.

      HOTEL APPLICATION REFUSED. The Newcastle Licensing Court recently dealt with an application by Joseph Weatherburn for a publican's license for premises proposed to be erected at Dora Creek. Among the objectors who gave evidence was Rev. F. A. Woodger, Church of England Minister, who said that he had been Rector of Bora Creek since September, 1920. He had not resided in Dora Creek earlier because he could not get a house. He had been in the immediate vicinity of Dora Creek for almost six years. He prepared a list of residents of the area within one mile of the site of the proposed hotel. On January 1, 1919, there were 260 adults in the area, and 175 children, making a total population of 435. In 1923 the total population was 378, and the adult population 209. The Court's finding was: On the evidence before it, the Licensing Court finds that it has not been proved to its satisfaction that there has been a large increase of population within the meaning of section 6, clause A of the Local Government Act, 1919, in the area within a radius of one mile from the site of the proposed premises, since January 1, 1919. The Court considers that, having so found, it cannot recommend the Governor to grant the petition, and it is, therefore, useless taking further evidence. It will recommend the Governor to refuse the petition. [2]
