During 1895 the Queensland Police Gazette was issued once a week, and each issue really is an historian's goldmine of information, much of which cannot be found anywhere else. Apart from any changes within the police force which are all listed, information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, reports on those released, even licences for thing live auctioneering, victuallers, tobacconists, and more. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.

Felonies and Offences not Otherwise Described
Croydon - At 4 p.m. on the 25th February last an explosion took place in the firebox of a steam engine at James' Block, True Blue Hill, Croydon, the property of Alfred James and others, doing damage to the amount of £100. The explosion is supposed to have been caused by a dynamite cartridge or cartridges introduced into the firewood used in the engine, and suspicion attaches to a man named James Gavan, a recent employee of the True Blue Company, who used some threatening language respecting them at the time of his discharge. The firewood was probably intended for the engine of the Company and not for complainant's.-O.512 1st April, 1895.
