What Shall be Done to Advertise the Blue Mountains. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

What Shall be Done to Advertise the Blue Mountains. When the effort was being made by our people to obtain space at the Queensland Exhibition for the purpose of advertising the Mountains as fully as time and space would permit for that particular occasion, a proposition was put forward at one of the meetings to form a strong Advertising Committee composed of representative gentlemen from the different towns along the line, whose business it would be to consider schemes for pushing the claims of this magnificent district, and bring before the people of other States the beauties and advantages of this part of our State as a tourist and health resort. As space could not be had at the Exhibition the proposi tion seems to have fallen through, as noth ing further has been done in the matter. If ever there was a time when it was neces sary to move in such a direction, that time is now. As far as we can learn there never lias been any united effort made to induce people to come here, and ap...

The Squireen. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

The Squireen. Dermot de Burgh sauntered up the grass grown avenue whistling a cheerful tune. Over the country which lay stretched be fore him, a splendid panorama, hung in a thick haze, born of the July heat, and the intense blue of the sky was dimmed on the horizon by a greyish bank of fog. 1 nrougn a gap in tne nrs ne coma see the white house standing staring at the shrouded mountains, a thin spiral of smoke rising from a stack of chimneys over the back wing, utter silence surrounding it. Far down in the valley one could see the sun glancing on roofs and the steeple of the church, but the haze hid the rest of the splendid view. The fields on either side of the long av enue were partially grown with heather and furze, and a veil of neglect lay over the whole place — poverty, too, had laid her iron grip on the De Burghs and their estates, and it was quite as much as the present head of the family could do to keep body and soul together, and the roof of Carrig more intact. It was a l...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

Letters to the Editor. Sir, -Referring to your report of the last meeting of the Blue Mountains Shire Council under the heading of correspondence, my application for certain clearing on the Falls road was again dealt with, but it would appear from your report that I was disputing about the payment of half of 30s. The facts of the matter are that as far back as April last I applied to the Council for the removal of, scrub from the road in front of land on which I propose erecting cottages. The application was very plain and simple, and would nave oeen grasped by any ordinary set of individuals in a few minutes. The work in question being entirely a Council matter, involving a very small expendi ture, probably under 30s. I was amazed to receive a request from them for £$ 15s, being half of the estimated cost, and although the discrepancy has been pointed out to them it is incredible that a body of presumably intelligent men should de liberately fence the question for over four months,...
