Alas, How True! [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 29 June 1898
Alas, Bow True! An exchange relates that once a farmer had 2000 bushels of wheat, which he sold, not to one single grain merchant, hnt to 2000 differ ent dealers, a bushel to each. A few of them paid him in cash, bnt the greater number said it was not convenient then, hut would pay later. A few months passed, and the man's iii&miv «ui:uil[lb ruu tun, uvn in UIIS I im said ; ' my two thousand bushels of grain should have kept me in affluence until annthnr crop is raised, hut I have parted with the grain, and have instead only a vast number of ac counts, so small and scattered that I cannot get around and collect it fast enough to pay my expenses.' So he posted up ft pnblic notiee end asked all those whi . owed him to pay quickly. But few eame. The rest said, ' Mine is only a small matter, and I Trill go and pay some of these days,' forgetting that though each amount was small, when nil were put together they meant a large sum to the man. Things went on thus ; the man got to f...
A Mammoth Cheque. £11,008,857 15S 9D. [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 29 June 1898
A Hammoth Chooue. £11,008,857 15s 9n. The balance of the China-Japanese war in demnity and one year's occupation expenses of Wei-Hai-Wei were paid to the Japanese Gov ernment at the Bank of England at a little be fore noon oh May 7th (writes the London ' Daily Mail'). In view of the largeness of the amount, viz., £11,008,857 15s 9d, the. navment was made in flip nrpNAnnA -nf tJini governor, the deputy-governor, and tbe chief cashier of the bank. The transaction really' involved a sum of nearly thirteen millions sterling, the difference being settled in ac count. The payment was made by a single cheque, probably the largest that was ever drawn on the Bank of England. Tbe above mentioned payment discharges all pecuniary claims of Japan on China, which is entitled to demand the withdrawal of tbe Japanese forces from Wei-Hai-Wei.

The Tenterfield annnal races were being held, aud a highwayman was known to be prowling about the ontslrirta of the town. Tbe hero of the meeting was a little bay gelding named Minstrel, and this horse won the double, the stakei representing about £180. Minstrel was owned by one Fell, a stockman on Mary land, and on receiving his cheque he converted it into bank notes. Disregarding the advice of his friends to lodge the amount in the bank, he soon afterwards proceeded to tbe station, riding on a back and leading the race horse, with his savin...

A Desperate Death. [Newspaper Article] — The Campbelltown Herald — 29 June 1898
A Desperate Death. The New South Wales Parliament dies hard — or, rather, hardened. Instead of penitential psalms, tlr . 2 have been exhibitions of black guardism. Members have rhetori cally tirung each others noses, metaphorically massacred recalci trant colleagues, and politically pulverised opponents. Language that would have tickled the ears of seasoned larrikins has echoed in the historic Chamber. The ladies' gallery has emptied at a rush, and threats and direct charges of vari ous enormities have been hurled from all parts of the House. Par liament dies impenitent and defiant, utterly regardless of the fact that it must meet its makers and mas ters — the people. One would have thought that as the hour of dissolu tion grew nigh there would be symptoms of sorrow and remorse, but of these there were none. Many members may have experi enced a sense of humiliation, but they concealed their feelings. How ever, polling day is not far off, and the voters may be avenged.
