Federation Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

On Monday evening Mr. W. G. Cameron, of Sydney* addressed a large and attentive audience in the Royal Hall on Federation. The Mayor (Mr. Lowing) presided and briefly introduced the speaker. Mr, Cameron said at the outset he desired to remove a false impression that had been formed with regard to bis action. He had no intention of interfering with local politics J neither had he, as suggested, an eye on the seat for Ashburnham. He came before them simply because it was his desire to further the cause of Federa tion and if he succeeded in so doing his labor would not be in vain. After briefly referring to the prominence assumed by the great question of Federation and lightly touching on its early history, he said about twelve months ago the citizens of this colony and of the other colonies of Australia, with the exception of Queensland, bad selected by popular election ten dele gates from each colony to frame a Federal Constitution, in terms of_an Act known as the Federal Enabling Act...

Condobolin. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

(from our own correspondent.) Continued dry weather is still un fortunately the order of the day in this district, any maoy express the fears of a repitition of the 1888 drought. If such is the case very little agricultural work can be done here, and there will be a diminished return from the wheat crop at the end of the year. At present a number of the station owners are removing their stock for grass and water, and if rain does not fall shortly the outlook for winter will be gloomy. The report of the Commissioners in connection with the pioneer light line to Moree ought to be read with much interest by the settlers along the Bogan Gafce-rOondobolic extension, and it ought to act as an incentive for them to urge the authorities to establish daily communication from Sydney to the terminus. Work in connection with the town water supply is nearing completion, and a trial of the pressure will be made shortly. Muck satisfaction is expressed at the rapid progress made, and business peopl...

The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

Oo Monday evening ominous^ looking clouds banked up on the horizon, and a heavy fall of rain was generally anticipated. During the night and early on Tuesday morning a few mist-like showers fell. Fine weather then prevailed till Wednes day, when a storm came up from the south-east—a rather unusual quarter from which to expect rain in Parkes. However during the night a number of welcome showers fell, registering 22 points up to 9 a.m. yesterday. This was the Post Office reading. Private gauges made it three or four points more. Daring the day showery weather prevailed, giving a total fall of 84 points up to 6 o'clock yesterday evening. This fall, though bo far comparatively light, will do an im mense amount of good throughout the district. Besides giving an im petus to the newlv-sown wheat, it will cause a very necessary spring in the grass, and afford at least a little green feed. For the most part— owing to the runs being lightly stocked—there is a fair amount of dry feed obtainabl...

"Why Federate?" [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

" Why Federate ?'* j This is the title of a pamphlet just issued by Messrs Angus and Robertson, and, as the name suggests, dealing with the all~imporfcant question of Federation, The subject is ably handled by Professor Jethro Brown, of Sydney University, who deals with the subject from a loftier plane than has been adopted by previous pam phleteers. What's more, the writer has striven to be simple and concise rather than ornate or elaborate, and has uot invoked the artificial aid of rhetoric to create a fictitious interest in the subject, The little work is published at a shilling, and should be perused with interest by opponents as well as supporters of the Convention Bill, |

Interesting to Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

Interesting to Farmers. In a recent issue we made reference to the disc plough, a new invention, which if it performs all that is claimed for it, will certainly revolutionise matters in agricultural circles, since by its aid ground can be ploughed in the dry est weather. An opportunity of seeing this plough at work is being afforded by Mr R. Thomas, who has arranged for a public trial of the im plement in his paddock early on Wed nesday afternoon. Of course' it re mains fco be seen what this machine will do, but the patentees and agents seem to have full confidence in it, when they selected one of the hardest bits of ground in ths district, at a time when all other ploughs were compul» sorily idle.—Siuce the announcement of the trial, and since the above waa written, a little rain has fallen. How* ever it has been decided to go on with the trial on Wednesday, as advertised elsewhere.

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1898. Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 6 May 1898

THE AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1898. The electors of Parkes are now having ample opportunity afforded of hearing every argument that can be adduced for and against the Conven tion Bill. While counselling a dis passionate consideration of the question, we must certainly protest against the unworthy tone which from the commencement has, in places, been imported into the controversy of the Bill. Both Bides have overstepped the line, in this matter, but some of the supporters of the Bill have been and are still the most in veterate offenders. We take it that no one who is worth considering desires that the battle shall be fought with any other weapon than truth, or that it shall be decided on any other grounds than the merits of the Bill. Yet, m place of defending the Bill, its champions defame those who criticise it. This, even if their accusations were true, which there is no reason to believe, leaves the Bill and its probable effects on the welfare of New So...

FLETOHEB'y PILLS never fail to cure INDIGESTION, COSTIVENESS, 7 y SOUR BREATH, , HEARTBURN, LIYER DISEASE, and KIDNEY COMPLAINTS. FLETCHER'S PILLS and CLEM ENTS TONIC are the recognised household remedies of the Australian colonies, and every designing quack tries to trade ori their reputation and renown. Thm is the greatest proof of their merit, and sufferers want to be particular to get the genuine ar ticles as regret and disappointment are sure to follow the use of the thousands of ' All-failing' remedies so freely advertised. The reputation and wide-spread use of Clements Tonic and Fletcher's Pills are the greatest proofs of their appreciation by the public. If they were not, as represented they would have passed out of memory long ere this ; but instead their sale is greater and they are more esteemed day by day and week by week, and this emphatically proves iheir undisputed supremacy.
