LOCALLY-MADE ENGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916
LOCALLY-MADE ENGINES. It is qnite on the cards that at no -di.sta.nfc date the State will launch out on an extensive scale upon the manufacture of locomotives.' At'the present time the State builds its own trucks and passenger carriages—at a rate, it is claimed, cheaper than in any other part of the world—and the Minister sees no reason why the same should not be done so far as locomotives are concerned. Just now theie is admittedly a shortage of both engine power and rolling stock; but Mr Hoyle, who is an ex-railway man, intends to make strenuous en deavous to remedy this at the earliest possible moment. Ordinarly, one would expect that the manufacture of locomotives, could be carried out at Everleigh, but the present con gested state of the shops, owing to .the extraordinary large amount of repair work, rendeis this impossible •for the time being, at any rate.
WILL NEVER DIE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916
Extraordinary attempts have been made in Germany to induce Irish prisoners of wai to form an Irish Brigade in order, to' fight against England and ."liberate" Ireland. We are moved to admiration and pro found respect by the splendid answer ■of the Irish soldiers (says the "Spec tator.1') A letter to the Emperor drawn up by the N:C.O.s acknow ledges the exceptional treatment given to the Irish prisoners—better food and less work than for the other prisoners—but .begs the Emperor to withdraw these concession's unless they can be extended to the other prisoners. "In addition to being Irish Catholics" say the signatories, "we have the honor to be British -soldiers." The phrase deserves to become immortal.

-O' ■ ■■■— - FIGHTS WITH THE BLACKS "The Oldest Inhabitant" (in the ."Bulletin") : Eumaaalla, offered on certain terms as a settlement area for soldiers by H. R. Denison, or Syd ney, was originally known as Gnuta wang, and had been in the House family for three-quarters of a century 'having been grouted to Edwin of ilk in 1825.

(The M udgte country was discovered by explorer Lawson, whose grandson, J. B. Bettington, died recently. The brothers George and Henry Cox, sons of the pioneer William, were the first to settle at Mudgee. As in honor bound they g...

AUSTRALIA'S RUNAWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 14 January 1916
On the return of R.M.S. Moan a to Y/ellington last week from San Fran cisco, it was stated that the 40 young men she carried with her hist trip from Australia and New Zealand, who obviously left to escape any mil itary duties that might be imposed on them in the future, gained some brief notority in San Francisco under the aegis of nondescript "peace soc ieties." But they soon dropped out of sight.
