nomination of candidates The public nomination of candi-^ dates in connection with the vacancy in the Perke9 Council, caused by the death of 4 Id. Rose, took place at noon on Tuesday. The Mayor presided and read out the nominations received as follows:— Harry Bowditch,journalist, Parkes. ; Mark Coleman, gardener, Parkee. Uriah Foster, gardener, Parkes. Mr. Bowditch withdrew from the contest. The Mayor declared Messrs Cole mau and Foster duly nominated and called on the gentlemen named to speak. Mr. Coleman said he had come before them again after a good long spell. On every occasion of an election he had been asked to allow himself to be nominntt d. Up to this he had declined. If elected he would do his best for the ratepayers and he would act independently as he had done when he was in the Council before. If they thought Mr. Foster a better man, then by ail means let them elect him. He laid little value on the position, for if » man did his duty faithfully and well in the Council h...

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRSENTATIVE FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1898. Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 29 April 1898

THE AND PARKES AND FORBES 'HEPRESENTAHVE FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1898. ots We believe that Mr. Barton has un dertaken to show that under the Con vention Bill majority rule must tri umph, and we await his demonstration with considerable interest. It is suffi ciently plain j however that the deadlock provisions by reason of their cucnbrous neaa could not be resorted to more than once iu the history of & Parlia ment, and that the ordinary condition of legislation would be one in which the representatives of 700,000 people would be able to veto everything that might be done by the representatives of 8,500,000. When it is remembered that at least two of the three small colonies are not in any way essential to the success of Federation, the anom-, ally involved in the proposal becomes still more striking. * sfc * The financial proposals also seem indefensible. The Federal Govern ment is to levy four times as much Customs taxation aB it needs, and is to return the balance to the several ...

Dr. Calder Speaks. On Saturday evening Dr. Oalder addressed the electors at Parkea borough and Tichbourne, on the Con vention Bill, Mr. Kimball presided at the former meeting and Mr. D. McMillan at the latter. The at tendance was good, and the doctor received an excellent hearing. In dealing with the Bill he took up the attitude of non-partizanship. He pointed out the advantages and dis advantages of the proposal, and explained at length what " Federa tion" and "Unification" meant, and the distinguishing characteristics of each. He pointed out two questions were to be considered by the electors: (1) Did they want Federation ? (2) If so, were they satisfied with the present Bill P The extraordinary powers of the Governor-Genera!, the Executive Coun cil, and Ministers of State were then touched upon. Referenoe was also made to the deadlock that would ensue if a direct taxation Bill were brought in, and he expressed regret that the referendum had not been adopted as an ultimatum, becau...

Memorial Service. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 29 April 1898

Memorial Service. A memorial service, in connection with the death of the late G. S. Willacy   was conducted at St. George's Church on Sunday evening by Rev F. G. Neild, who preached an eloquent sermon from the Acts of the Apostles XIII, 36 : "For David after he had   served his own generation by the will of God fell on sleep." The preacher (whose words deeply impressed the large congregation present) first dealt with the home life of their departed brother—a good kind husband, a wise and prudent father; of the wise pro vision he had made for his family ; and of the admirable training to which he had subjected his children. His church life, and particularly his work in the Sunday School, were next referred to, and in concluding the rev. gentleman exhorted his hearers to imitate the noble example and good qualities of the deceased gentleman, and to remain steadfast in their faith fulness to the true principles of   Christianity.

Easter Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 29 April 1898

The adjourned annual Easter meet ing of the parishioners of St. George's Church was held on Tuesday evening, Rev. F. C. Neild R.D. presiding. In his address the chairman said one of the most remarkable features of the year in connection with their church was the appointment of ladies to posi tions on the Parochial Council, and he had pleasure in testifying to the valu able services rendered by them. Right throughout the parish the greatest harmony had prevailed. He was very sorry to find that according to the new Church Act ladies were precluded from being elected to the Council. They must all agree that the ladies had done well, and although they could not sit as Parochial Councillors he thought it would be a wise step to appoint a committee of ladies to assist them as they had during the past year. It was now optional with the parishioners whether they would ap point a Parochial Council or not, for under the new Act the churchwardens were the executive committee of the parish. Wit...

The Golden Klondyke. AN ENORMOUR RUSH OF GOLD SEEKERS GOING IN. SOUND ADVICE FROM AN INHABITANT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

AN ENORMOUR RUSH OF GOLD SEEKERS GOING IN.. . . / ' ; SOUND ADVIGE FROM AN INHABITANT. In the rush towards the golden fields of the Klondyke, there ^re; thousands who are ill-fitted to stand the strain of hardships and exposure, which are inseparable from that trip. Illness, disease, and death is almost certain to claim many of the ill-pre pared adventurers. The following letter from one who has undergone the hardships of the trip, will prove interesting to those who intend going into the desolate but gold-laden north:— Shagway, March 1st, 1898. Dear Sirs,—My object in writing this letter is to give a word of advice to those who contemplate going to the Yukon goldfields. For ten years I have followed the occupations of pros pecting, timber-measuring and mining, and the hardships one has to undergo are enough to wreck the strongest con stitution. In the spring of 18971 was stricken with pleurisy, as the result of exposure. I recovered from this, but if left behind the seeds of diseas...

Defence of Havana. (FROM THE "NEW YORK HERALD.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

{FROM THE '' new YORK HERALD.") la the old days Havana claimed, and with justice, to be one of the most strongly fortified ports in the world, but the advances made ia guns and gunnery have changed a!l that. Now the defences of the city are chiefly interesting, because of their antiquarian character and pic turesque aspect, The famous Morro Castle and the fortress of La Cabana, both magnifi cent to gaze upon, and of old deemed impregnable, are now useful for little else except to look at and to serve as 1 prisous. Their armament is an tiquated, and their massive walls of masonery must soon crumble before the fire of modem artillery. Of the same order is the qu int old Castillo de La Punta. Most formidable of all the modern j defensive works of Havana is the great sand battery at Playa del Chivo, on the sea coast, about three-quarters of a mile to the eastward of the Morro. The battery mounts two j magnificent 12-inch Krupp rifles, which, however, are destitute of all protection save...
