That Branch Line. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 15 April 1898
That Branch; Lin©. A Bulbodney correspondent writes : At a meeting of the settlers of Bul bodney, on 9th April, it was decided to again urge the Government to con struct a light line of railway from Bogan Gate via Trundle and Bullock Greek to Bulbodney Greek. As the portion of the line from Bogan Gate to Bullock Creek has been guaranteed against loss by the residents of those districts it was decided to offer to guarantee the portion from Bullock Greek to Bulbodney Greek against loss also. A petition to this effect was drawn up for presentation to the Min ister for Works. As there are large areas under cultivation in these dis tricts, and a considerable amount is being added yearly, the line would be a paying one from the start.
SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 15 April 1898
SECOND DAY. Another falling*off in the atten dance, as compared with last year, was to he chrooicied on the second day. The ranks of the hookmaking fraternifcv were! augmented by the arrival of about half-a-dozen well-known pencil led, by the morning train, from Sidney, The first Face brought about a protest against the winner for crossing. The committee indulged in an exhaustive inquiry, and, we think, very properly dismissed the protest. There is no questioning the fact that Kingsley was done at the straight entrance an&lt;* ^ »8 hard to see how he wbs in any way interfered with. Certainly the weight of evidence was in Myee'd favor. The Coradgery Handicap was uneventful, if we cxcept the remarkable way the field opened out at the bend, and allowed Victorine to Creep up in the inside, the event of the meeting wao, of course, the Parkes Cup, for which the whole ten that figured on the card faced the music. It was generally regarded as a match between Sam, Nevertire, Ailie an...

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1898. Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 15 April 1898
THE AHD PARKES AND FORBES REPRESEHTATIVL FBIBAY, APRIL 15, 1898. " To federate or not to federate'* is put as the question to be decided by the electors. But it ia not exactly an accurate statement of the case. The real question is " Shall we close with the offer that is now made to us, or shall we stand out for more equitable terms Those whose ambition and personal feelings are deeply concerned in bringing the Convention to a successful issue will Bay : " Close with the present offer.'' It may be that on careful examination the electors will take their advice. But the question must be decided on its own merits, and not upon the "ipse dixit" of the delegates, who are too obviously biassed in faymir of their own offspring to render them altogether reliable ao guides. Then the young and the ardent, if they are in favour of federating at all, will GBy : rt Federate at once." They are naturally impatient of delay, and still more impatient of anything that seems like haggling or bargaini...

MOUNT HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 15 April 1898
MOUNT HOPE. The Mount Allen gold mine has little or nothing to remind a person of its former prosperity. The town itself seems entirely abandoned, there being only a few habitations occupied. However, in the immediate neighbour- hood there are a few energetic miners &nbsp; prospecting for payable reefs. One &nbsp; party (Messrs Turner and Co.) have &nbsp; pegged out what seems to be a lode or outcrop of rich copper ore. Specimens brought into town were that rich that a few leading people in the district have taken up shares, and are determined to give the place a fair trial. "If successful, Mount Hope will be the centre of the richest mines in the west. Tullias Look-out is still showing gold freely, but a want of means prevents the proper develop ment ol this property. In the im mediate neighbourhood of the claim several rich specimens of gold bearing stone have been discovered, proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that &nbsp; the precious metal aboun...

A Peculiar Case. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898
A Peculiar Case. A Forbes correspondent writes :--An incident occurred locally during the week, in which the Forbes Jockey Club figured prominently, and which has caused a deal of talk locally. A well-known resident and horse-owner was charged by the Club with remov ing certain obstacles, placed on the course proper, and training on it against the Club's orders. An inquiry was held and the horse-owner had also to face a charge of abusing the secretary.

The Weather. With the prolonged spell of dry weather and the n^ar approach of winter the outlook for those on the land becomes serious.

Unloss a copious fall occurs before many weeks have passed over a very trying winter will be experienced.
An Underserved Sentence. INDIGNATION FREELY EXPRESSED. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898
INDIGNATION FREELY EXPRESSED; Justice, tempered with mercy s has often been meted out to those least deserving any consideration. There are those, too, who on the other hand have undergone heavy and undeserved sentences, their only solace being in the knowledge that they possess tiie sympathy of their friends, who, whilst giving free expression to their indig nation, are powerless to assist them. Whether Mrs* Boyes, now reoiding at 162 Dowling-streefc, Sydney, merited the 15 years' torture she has just completed, we will leave an un biased public to say. Certain it is that but foe Dr. Williams' Pink Fills for Pale People her sufferings would have been more prolonged. i( For fifteen years I suffered from indigestion," said Mrs. Boyes to a re porter Irom the " Leichhardt Stan dard," and continued she, " a long weary time to. be ill, and I might have been suffering still if I had not the good fortune to drop on a paragraph in the papers describing a cure by Dr. ' Williams' Pink Pills f...

THE AND PARKES AND F2RBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 1898. ona One of the most welcome announce ments winch have greeted the people of New South VYaies for a long time past is that the English Government have introduced a Bill to modify the Vaccination Act in the direction of humanity and freedom. The Board of.Health of this colony has been endeavouring to induce the Govern ment to bring m a Bill to establish compulsory vaccination, and the sub ject, therefore, is one which possesses a very lively interest for every citizen. It is also pretty clear that it a Bill is introduced it will very largely be fashioned on the pattern of Imperial legislation, a consideration which adds funher interest to the latter. # * * The Bill which has been introduced into the House of Commons by Mr. Chaplin proposes to abolish repeated prosecutions; to extend the age within which a child must be vaccin ated from three months to one year ; to send the vaccinator to the home of the child instead of...
