A RIVER TRAGEDY. A LINESMAN DROWNED. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 21 January 1916
. ( A LINESMAN DROWNED. / , A sensation -was felt In town on Friday afternoon last when it became known one of the teleyi, graphic linesmen had been drowryv^l in the river. Hit name was Sa^lW Stewart, from Walgett, and V '&M^P only been working ^6™poraj^r^e(j'jo Wellington. At first it was that the man had fallen from®^|l(P^ railway bridge into the Macquarie, but inquiries ascertained that this was not the case. It was difficult to gat really precise particulars, but it appears that a party of linesmen were working on the line at the bridge. Archie Lee was in charge, and besides the deceased there were Charles Grill and Joseph. Shiels on the job. It seems that Stewart had the task of taking the line over the stream, and wras, so it was said, advised not to do so, when he pro posed to swim across, drawing the wire after him. He entered the river from the north side, however, and appeared to be going along al right for some time. Indeed, he was "bailed by Lee, who asked him ho...

WOOL TRAVELLING [?] CONTINUED. JOHN BRIDGE AND COMPANX LIMITED. AVOIDING USELESS EXPENDITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 21 January 1916
/ V JOHN BRIDG-E AND COMPANX LIMITED. . AVOIDING USELESS EXPEN DITURE, There appears to-day an impor tant announcement, by Jolrn Bridge and Co., Ltd., who have foreseen that the ever-increasing taxation, and, cost of labor and material, will in evitably result, in the raising of the charge for selling wool and other products of Australian industry. Such a step has already been con templated; but this firm has been, and still is, as they havfe stated in our business columns, strenuously opposed to any such change until all sources of wasteful and needless ex penditure have been discontinued. High prices for wool and other products have, for the moment, so the firm say, made it unnecessary for selling agents to seek increased pay ment for their work, but the abnor mally high prices now .ruling cannot last for ever; and the firm recognises that the present time presents a fit ting opportunity to bring about a re form, the generally adoption of which they have previously advocated, but ...
WHEN SHOUTING IS STOPPED [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 21 January 1916
WHEN SHOUTING IS STOPPED A request was before the Wiuga dee Shire Council rcee.ting - for co operation -with' the Dnmaresq Shire Council in a movement to ask Parlia-i roent to prohibit treating or shouting in hotels during the currency of the *war. ' . Cr. Taylor expressed the view that the proposal was better than the idea of closing hotels at 6 o'clock.. They could leave hotels open all night if they prohibited "shouting," and there •would not be half as much drinking, Qr. Peacock was of the opinion that the proposal was going too far, as it interfered with the liberty of the subject. It would look as if one's friends were dead. Cr. Landers said that it would ip terfere with the spirit of geniality, but he thought in war time- that they must be prepared for some re striction on liberty. . On the motion of Cr Taylor, see. ended by Cr Mill, it was decided to i30*9pei1'ate in tlie proposal.
