  • 16 Mar 1878: DEATH OF MR. GEORGE GUNN.
    It is with feelings of deep regret that we have to record the decease of Mr. George Gunn, who, after a lingering illness of over ten weeks, expired on Thursday evening at 20 minutes past seven o'clock, at his residence, Commercial-road. The respect in which Mr. Gunn was held was of no ordinary character. His straightforward and thorough manly style of dealing with the many with whom he came into contact, whether in business transactions or in his private capacity, won for him the goodwill of all. A few remarks of his career will not be out of place. Deceased was a native of Woodbridge, Suffolk, England, and arrived in the colony some 25 or 26 years ago, at the time when the gold mania allured so many thousands from every corner of the globe. Not being one of the few who amassed unfold wealth in a few days, he located himself in Richmond for a short time, but eventually removed to his late residence in Prahran, where he remained to the last. To old residents, Mr. Gunn's enterprise was well-known. From his commencement as horse dealer, he gradually extended his operations to that of livery stables keeper. His energy was untiring, and his capacious and well-balanced head speedily enabled him to become the largest proprietor of cabs and waggonettees in the district. As his operations extended, so Mr. Gunn showed that he possessed all the requisite talent for its management, and eight years ago he entered into an arrangement with the Melbourne Railway Company to run buses to Camberwell and Kew, which arrangements are still in existence, he then started buses from the South Yarra Railway Station to Toorak, and vice-versa, following up his ever extending business to the line between South Yarra and St. Kilda. The latter was a great convenience to the residents of these districts, but the crowning action to his indemitable perseverance and energy was the inauguration of a line of waggonettee and buses to Melbourne at half the ordinary fares. There were but few who augured a successful issue, but Mr. Gunn calculated his chances well, and he had the proud satisfaction of seeing his speculation fully answer the results he anticipated. The people of Prahran are under a lasting debt of gratitude to the deceased in his determined stand against the grasping monopoly of the Melbourne and Hobson's Bay Railway Company, and if good wishes could have spared him to enjoy the fruits of his labours, most assuredly he had them. Up to the last he retained full possession of his mental faculties, but feeling that his end was nigh, he, a week ago, disposed of a portion of his business to the Melbourne Omnibus Company at a good round figure, Mr Gunn has passed away at the comparatively early age of 48, leaving behind him a wife and two children, to sorrowfully lament the loss of a good husband and kind father. The funeral will take place to day, at three o'clock, and will be under the management of Mr. Romanis, of South Yarra.8

Land-Note*23 Apr 1877 PAK-149. Pakenham April 23rd 1877. The Honorable the Minister of Lands. Sir, I have the honour to inform you that about eleven months ago I applied for 120 acres of land at Pakenham and paid survey fees and all expenses and the land has not been surveyed yet, although surveyors had been surveying many times since in the neighbourhood that had not been applied for months after mine & I wish to know whether I can get the land or not as I want to have either the money or the land. I hope you'll give orders to have it be surveyed at once as there are surveyors now in the neighbourhood and you will oblige. Your most obt. servant, Adolph Lormes.2 
Land-Note*14 Sep 1877 PAK-149 Wilson Cornwall. Sir, wheras I did peg out a peace of land in the Parish of Pakenham on the 17th April 1876, made application on the 19th and registered the same day. I paid survey fees in accordings with the rule and never heard anything more about it until I got a letter from the Department of which the following is a copy.
25th May 1877
Refferring to your letter of the 9th inst I have to inform you that the survey of your selected land in the Parish of Pakenham is now in progress as soon as the plan of the block is furnished by the surveyor you will be further communicated with.

I attended what is called a land board at Cranbourne on the 23 of last Aug when Mr Callanan called a man who did not apply until some time in the month of May 1876 he then said is there any objections to this application, I objected.
But as Mr Callanan did not forget my son writing against him for a simelar offence. He recommended the application of this Edolph Lorrane unfare asit was which did not ad much to his fame as people said after that Mr Callanan would do anything. I have been disappointed and badly treated by Callanan.
Sir it is for you to say whether this unfare trick will be carried out or not. Yours truly, Wilson Cornwall address Pakenham.2 
Land-Note12 Oct 1877 PAK-149 Wilson Cornwall. The description given in both applications I consider does not apply to the same land according to the area applied for, and this view was fully borne out by the evidence of Cornwall and his witness, who distinctly stated that he Cornwall commenced his pegging from the SW + NW angles of allot 51 (Coxons) and from thence westwards (100 ac) 96 ac remains in this position, which Cornwall refused to take - alleging notwithstanding his evidence and description that he had pegged the same land as Lormes. He ultimately stated that he knew nothing of the description and that cannot have written it. Callanan.2 
Land-Note14 Nov 1877 PAK-149 Wilson Cornwall. Memo of case recorded in the Honorable The Minister's Note Book Page 417 Vol 16. C/10878 3034/19.
Wilson Cornwall complains that the land he selected in Pakenham was not surveyed for him and that the portion recommended to Adolphus Lormes included what he had pegged.
Mr callanan produces plans and applications and judging from his application and his admission as to the position of his pegs it appears that there is still 96 acres available for him when he pegged. This he would not take. Charged Mr Callanan with prejudice. Would not put this in writing definitely.
Mr Luginne? would not listen to vague charges against offences without the slightest shadow of evidence to support them. It was clear that Mr Callanan had acted in accordance with Mr Cornwall's own application. Case dismissed. ..order ..Walstab.2 
Land-Note8 Dec 1877 PAK-149 Wilson Cornwall. To the Hon. Minister of Lands. Sir, I have been a purchaser of crown lands in the City of Melbourne and also of country lands in different places, in fact, I have been one who has assisted to bring the country to its present flourishing state.
In 1866 a brother of mine was missed who I suppose to have met with what is called here foul play and through being determined to find out some trace of the same I got into law with one James Martin. He Martin became insolvent and as I was the principal creditor I had him prosecuted and convicted for fraudlent insolvency. About this time a number of people ware accused and summoned for assisting to make away with insolvent stock. Amongst these ware Mr Callanan's friend ........ and I take it on me to say that a great downfall in different ways have come upon a number of men whichcontended with me about these times ... Some years after two sons of mine applied for land in the Parish of Pakenham one of them for surveyed allotment 161 acres allotment 51the other for three hundred twenty acres taking in the land which is now in dispute thay poot in than applications. All was done in the land office. Some time after the documents ware returned to them by post accompanied by a letter stating that the magistrate who took the affedavits was omitted to office and that they would have to peg and apply again. This thay done without much delay but found that one Coxon had pegged allotment 51 two days before them.
During which time this schame was carried out ... after this my other son declined to except of his three hundred and twenty acres he said he would go to the other side of the Murry River and that he did not expect land here while Callanan was in such power. However, Coxon did not enjoy his selection long I believe a few days after it was granted to him ... referring to my selection I did not peg out two or three hundred acres as stated by Mr Callanan which I believe he did not see. I knew the land well and placed one peg opposit the west corner of which is known as Mr Quirks land which is now occupied by Mrs Coxons, thence coming west about 40 chains ... north from McMullans and north from Mr Officers and placed two other pegs about 30 chains north. After this I complied all rules which were required. In about a month after I saw pegs placed about 3 feet inside of the pegs which I had poot down. With notices bareng the name of Adolph Lorrane I made inquiries who he was and was told that he was a greek or Lascar that was working about Pakenham. I said I thought he was something of that kind as no other could be got to make such a bare faced attempt. A little time after I went to Mr Whitelaw to see if he had got orders to survey for me he told me from what he had heard he had got two orders to survey one allotment and could not do anything until he would see Mr Callanan.
The next time I saw him he objected to survey the land as he said things ware in a confused state. I then said the registry will prove who is entitled to it and the registry I refer to still when I told these particulars to a friend she said I am afraid your old friend have not idle. I then said he cannot get over the registry I believe it is out of his reach.
Sir, I have apealed to you and the registry and other perticulars will prove who have got truth on thair side. I believe the whole weight of this transaction rests with you. Thare is no other apeal and should I not get what is fare I must only leave it to a higher power. Yours truly Wilson Cornwall.2 
Land-Note28 Dec 1877 PAK-149 Wilson Cornwall. To the Honorable Minister of Lands. Sir, Refarring to my selection I need not go into all perticulars which I have stated to you before wheras I pegged the land on the 17th April 1876 and paid £7 seven pounds in due time and place in about a month after the said land was pegged by another placing his pegs about three feet inside of my pegs. For this there is plenty of proof. Now might I ask you if it is useless to refer to the date of the application or the date of the registry the survey of this land lay over until Mr Gillies was out of office then was surveyed immediately after and has been carried out unil its present unfare stage. All this is well known in this locality and great comment on the ... When I was last in the said office one of your sacretaries said to me you have said so and so and such and such at the land board at Cranbourne and now have come here to bring accusitions against officers of this department. Might I ask you if it is a crime to come thare or else whare to state the truth if so it was not always the case in that department. On the 26th of this month I had an enterview with a few friends. When one of them said did they even send you your money I said no. He then said do the minister know these things - in reply I have give him all perticulars but I am sorry to say his views are all to one side in answer yes and to the wrong side he then said ware you to drop it you would do an injustice to others as well as yourself - you can have a case taken before the house along with affidavits - I said not until the minister gives his final decision. Yours truly, Wilson Cornwall.2 
Land-Note28 Jan 1878 PAK-149 Wilson Cornwall. To the Honorable Minister of Lands. Sir, I again refor to that unmanly and unfare schame by Mr Callanan of which you appear to be a strong supporter. Now Sir that case is two absurred in every way to lie as it is at present I have even requested a fair final decision and have not got it and have written a Nomber of Letters to you and have been treated with silent contempt. Yet the coppies of those letters may be seen at times that you would rather that things had been carried out fairly well you even now give your Decision however hard it may be to say the word that you know is unfare. Yours truly Wilson Cornwall.

29-1-1878. The Hon the Minister has dealt with this case - I think Mr Walstab has the papers and other corr. Cornwall received his reply from the Minister in the Boardroom I think. Callanan.2 
Land-NoteMar 1878 PAK-149 Wilson Cornwall. To the Honorable Minister of Lands. Sir, referring to some remarks relative to my selection. The land is situated between Berwick and Pakenham upon a road side even and old road which has been shown in the map. Now the most of twenty years thare could not have been any misunderstanding or mistake made unless it was done through a willful design. Now what excuse might the District Surveyor make for taking the second application for the same peace of land? Was he competent of his business even the course he was incolined to persue. he could not nor did not make two surveys of the same land. No he made but one survey at the expiration of seventeen months from the date of my application and disposed of it at his land board held at Cranbourne on the 23rd of August last in a way to suit his own purpose or what reasonable cause might the District Surveyor show for holding over the survey of that land for one year and five months. I believe the man did not see his way clear while the Hon. Mr Gillies was in office. Now you will not deny that you have refused to bring the case before the Land Board held at Melbourne. You have also said that no action will be taken in that case, which does not add much to your fame. Now what can I say or what can others say. I will leave that as a question yet I have many remarks to make which you may hear at some other time. Yours truly, Wilson Cornwall.
