GENERAL NEWS. WIND STORM AT BATHURST. MUCH DAMAGE DONE TO PROPERTY. A severe windstorm prevailed all Monday last week iu Bathurst, when clouds of blinding dust swept over the city from morning to nightfall. Many roofs were damaged, and the steeple of the Methodist Church lost several of its copper sheets. Telegraphic and telephonic communication with Sydney was Beriously interefered with the interruption being largoly account- i ed for by a tree falling, across the j wires on the mountains. Much dam-1 age was done in some of the orchards. I A bank clerk was walking along WU- I Uam street with £400 worth of cheques 1 when a gust of wind scattered the do cuments, most of which were later re- j covered considerable distances apart. ;

AUSTRALIAN NOTES. NEARLY £25,000,000 WORTH ISSUED. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 16 March 1915
AUSTRALIAN NOTES. NEARLY £25,000,000 WORTH ISSUED. The value of Australian notes issued j and not redeemed on February 24 was £24,937,893 against -\vhlcli the amount of gold held by the Treasury was £10,048,658. A noticeable feature in connection with the largely increased issue is that It ulrnost solely consisted of £1000 notes. This may bo account ed for partly by the payment of £1,000, 000 on account of tho loan granted to tho Commonwealth by the associated banks on the security of the Common* wealth notes. A condition of tho loan was that such notes cannot be presented at the Treasury for cx chango in gold. It was probably more convenient for the banks to take the notes in large denominations than in smaller ones. i
