WERRIS CREEK— DUBBO RAILWAY. Line Completed Would Be a Boon to Owners of Starving Stock. (By W. H. Bemi.) The Pubbo-Werris Creek railway has been the topic of much discussion i't Gulgong during the present drought. Storkowners who desire to truck stock to the New England district are com pelled to send them via Sy Iney, a dis tance of several hundred miles, "where as, it; this railway line were completed a couple of hundred miles would com plete the journey. This line would bo a great boon to stockowners in dry times, as stock could be transferred from Pubbo and surrounding districts to New England and vice versa at a minimum of expense and trouble.

Decentralisation Some Day, Perhaps. PREMIER'S VAGUE STATEMENT Always Against North Coast Rail way—Decentralisation After Millstones Have Rolled Away. On the question of railways lie would renounce all responsibility for the North Coast railway, said the Premier (Mr. Holman) at Armidale on Monday, as reported in the Armidale Chronicle. He was always against it, and had al ways held that the coast should have been united with the highlands, with lines running east and west. A line running parallel with the coairt must be in direct opposition to sea-borne traffic. When the coalition Government took of fice there was nothing for it but to go on with the job and finish it. Tf the Government were challenged with the query, "Why ha.ven't you enterprised a decentralisation policy during the past few years?" the financial strin gency of that period was the sole ex planation. As it was now there was a vast amount of money invested in works, many uncompleted and unpro ductive. Once the present...

1 «y.: Of Interest to Women, -r By Mother o' Pearl | Women Volunteers. There is every indication that pneu monic-influenza is making headway in this State, and the time may come—in deed, almost has come—when there will be insufficient trained help to cope with the sufferers' needs. All those women who have left in the years be hind them a trained knowledge should set about organising in some way to help others in distress. There must be many trained nurses, now married, whose domestic calls could be so ar ranged as to permit of them forming a voluntary army of help. So far Aus tralia has known little of the grim nearness of war, but this is a war with in Australia, which will need the help of her women volunteers to stamp out Much is being done by Red Gross workers and other patriotic bodies, but there is still work awaiting women whose training must be of great value just now.

An Old Prophecy Comes True. £11,000 MINING DEAL. Old Prospector is Well Rewarded After Years of Hard Work. The fact of the discovery and sale, at £11,000, of the valuable gold-bearing reef, at Coo'placurripa, the samples of which being assayed reveal the high value of eighteen ounces to the ton, ' will be of very great interest to some of the old mining identities of both Gloucester and the Manning, according to the Advocate. Forty-live years ago, and long before the G'opeland rush, when the "Mountain Maid" mine was dis covered, Xowendoc, in the vicinity of Cooplacurripa, was known as a fairly payable alluvial field. Indeed, a few fortunes were made there. This was in the days of the late Thomas Laurie, who at that time owned the Nowendoc Station. The Cells digging was also in the sainn vicinity, and some good gold was discovered in that locality too. Mr. Western, of Winghain, made a nice little bit at No wen doc, as did also Mr. W. Ferris, his son-in-law, while Mr. Dun can McPherso...

MODERN FARMING METHODS. Department ol Agriculture's Programme. FARMERS PROFIT BY EXPERIMENTS. What the Government is Doing to Help the Man On the Land.

INVERBLL. Up-to-date Hospital Needed.

The sum of about £8000 or £10,000 is needed to erect the class of institution that In verell's needs demand.

GOLD MINING INDUSTRY FORGING AHEAD AT BULGA Proposed Railway Would Greatly Assist Companies in their Mining Operations. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 17 April 1919
GOLD MINING INDUSTRY FORGING AHEAD AT BULGA Proposed Railway Would Greatly Assist Companies in their Mining Operations.^j^^ In its advocacy of a railway from "Wingham to the Bulga, the Chronicle mentions that another industry which should not be lost sight of is gold min ing. It is well known that gold and other minerals exist there—alluvial gold being easily obtained • almost any where. A prospecting syndicate has recently been formed in Wingham, and is now working on the Bulga, while a Victorian company has -within the past few days purchased a claim on a part of the same mountain range for the I sum of £13,000. This claim is said to show 18 ounces of gold to the ton. And it might be mentioned here that it is certain that in the very near future a big limestone industry will be estab lished in Wingham, where some of the best limestone in Australia, is known to exist in unlimited quantities.
