THAT FARMER'S COMPLAINT. (TO THE EDITOR "WESTERN CHAMPION.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

i'S EBBiPMMT. (TO THE EDITOR u "WESTERN CHAMPION.") Sir,—In your issue of April 22nd, "A Farmer" commences what is termed a complaint, with either a mistake or a deliberate falsehood. He says that Mr. Gardiner " ridiculed" the " simple farmers for having advo • cated a tariff against the other colonies,' and at the same time supported Feder ation." But it was not the farmers that Mr. Gardiner ridiculed (much as " A Farmer" would like to make it appear so), but the farmers' would-be advisers, the Protectionist candidates, who endeavoured to delude the farmers of New South Wales into supporting a tariff to keep out the goods produced by the farmers of other colonies, and who are now advising the farmers to remove the barricades and admit the other colonies' produce freely. " A Farmer'' cannot substantiate his charge against Mr. Gardiner, for the simple reason that there is no truth in his statement. But the " complaint" is a very transparent one. " A Far mer" is more anxious to do Mr....

CONDOBOLIN STOCK BOARD. (TO THE EDITOR 'WESTERN CHAMPION.') [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

THE EDITOR ' WESTERN CHAMPION.') Sir,—Re the Oondobolin Pastoral ists' Destruction Board. Oh ! what an energetic body of men they are, Here we are week after week bearing complaints made against the havoc done by wild dogs and wallabies, and people. figliting hard against them. Yet this noble body of men come for ward in tb.e face of this and cut down the bonus for wild dogs to 5s, and that of wallabies to—wait now —one half penny. Why, a wallaby-shooter would not dirty his knife by scalping one for it. But surely these noble fellows must have another game to play. Let me see ? Ah, I have it ! They intend taking the assessment off sheep. Now that they have taken such a bold step to retrench, I would suggest that one of the men that has neither dingoes or wallabies would take over the secretaryship gratis, thoreby save £80 a year and then the others follow suit and forfeit their guinea a sitting; that would add nicely to the £1000 they have in hand. I wonder what they are going to do...

Dandaloo. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

(from our own correspondent.)" < An event of no small interest has taken place during the last few days, The Picni6 Races, which used to be a regular thing of the year, 'came off on Friday last, the 14th instant. The fact was not advertised much, conse quently few were awaie that such a thing was about to happen., and more especially as the club had not held anything prior to this one for four years. It is difficult tov say, what was ! the cause .of the "deadlock for such a lepgth of time, when Dandaloo used to be so keen on sporfc, especially horse racing, But it appears now that the committee had held a small sum bf money over from the meeting before, and with that it was decided to hbld this one to wind the Olub up. However, judging by Friday's racing arid the interest that was manifested therin, it will just have an effect the reverse of death, In fact, even now I hear that a meeting is to be held probably with the object of forming another committee at an early date,...

STUART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

STUART TOWN. Rain has fallen during the past week, and replenished the dams, tanks, etc. Ic was beginning to look aeriousj as the Government well had just given out, but now, thanks to Jupiter Pluvius, a smile has taken the place of careworn looks, as there is an abundant supply of water for mining and domestic purposes. The Messrs Boehme Bros, and Elliott Bros, have amalgamated into a joint company, and are now buBily engaged renovating and repairing their battery, and m'end adding a shaking table in order to save the fine gold and mineral from the Mad man's Mine, which averages about loz to the ton. The Cyanide Works are still in full swing, and have sent another parcel of precipitates to JLIapto Works. They have just completed 543 tons of tailings, and, as I understand from the manager, it looks better than the last lot sent away to the Works.

Constance Hardie Co. On Wednesday night the Constance Hardie Silver King Company com menced a two-nights' season in the Royal Hall. Owing to the broken weather the attendance was not large. The combination is a powerful one, in fact it may be said of it that it is in every sense the best that has yefe toured the provincial towns of New South Wales. The company includes names well-known throughout the theatrical world, notably Miss Con stance Hardie, favorably known in this district as leading lady of Mr C. R. Stanford's Company, also Mr Albert Lucas, an English actor of great repute, who was for a lengthy period a leading member of Mr Wil son Barrett's English Co,, and also highly spoken of as a most, talented elocutionist. In conjunction with these may be mentioned Mr Scott Leighton, Mr Newton Caroll, Mr Henry Saville, Mr G. Harper, Mr F. Gilbert, Mr E.

The rainfall of last week was a most welcome reserve m the order of things. The river, from below the township downwards, had disappeared beneath the gravelly bed, and it was very much diminished above the bridge, whecd there is generally a fair supply of water,, It was interesting to observe a very slight fresh in the stream, just previous to the rain, owing to the springs breaking out in the high country. This was also the case last year. Our farmers will now be able to do a little better at plough ing than formally, and it is to be hop :d that the recent downpour will...
