From The Brisbane Courier, 16 April 1886 -- QUEENSLAND SEPARATION. London, April 15. Dr. [Joseph] Ahearne delivered a lecture last night night on the Queensland separation question and in the interests of the Northern portion of the colony he demanded that it be granted autonomy. The Hon. Harold Finch-Hatton asserted that the North had not received its fair share of loan money. Mr. Garrick, Agent-General, denied that any partiality had been shown towards the Southern portion of the colony, and insisted upon the advantages of the colony remaining intact. The Hon. Murray Finch-Hatton presided at the meeting.
