CORRESPONDENCE. LOWER GASCOYNE WELLS. To THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 5 May 1906
CORRESPONDENCE. IiOWER GASCOYNE WELLS. To THE EDITOR SIR,-I would like to dr&T the attention of the members of the Lower Gascoyne Road Board to the bad position of the wells on the part of the Gascoyne road under their control. I believe that they have put men on to patch up the old wells, which are with one or two exceptions sunk in the river or near the bank brlow flood mark, and consequently every time the river comes down they get washed away. And not only that, but they are sank near pools that last a long time, and the stock belonging to the squatters have conse quently eaten all the feed off round the wells for some distance, which pre vents the travelling public from being able to camp near any of them, save the one or two which are sunk out from the river, and where there is always a bit of feed to be had, showing the advisability of having others sunk in suitable places out from the river also. The wells at present which are sunk in or near the river cost nearly as...
