Stewart, of Peak Hill, addressed the electors m the Royal Hall last Friday. There was a very large attendance who listened at tentively to the very able speech he delivered on Federation. A very rich find of ore is reported from the Anaconda mine, situated some lew miles from here out Melrose way. The results are stated to be 50 per cent of copper. Quite a a number of men are out prospecting, as this is considered a very promising district for new finds.' The opening of the line has been the means of diverting a large amount of traffic, for Bobadah, Mount Hope, and Hiliston wav, through the town, as it is found much nearer and cheaper than by the old routes. Besides this there is always pl...
Melrose. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 27 May 1898
(from our. own correspondent,) Mining matters are rather more brisk in this district than usual. The Auaconda mining party haa juat struck a fresh schute, which accord ing to all accounts is very good. Mr, Thomas Trevena is still in charge of this mine. At the mine there id an hotel kept by Mr. S. Byrne, and known aa the Melrose Hotel. There is also an excellent shop owned bj Mr. J. M, Brady, and considering the distance the place is from the railway and the wretched condition of the country, things are procurable at a very reason able figure. Xhis is because he is not entirely depending 'upon the store for a Jiving. The Red Crag minej owned by Messrs Byrum Bros., at Yellow Mountaiu, is at present at a standstill owing to the fact thit it is under offer to an English syndicate for £5000, and the company's inspector, Mr. Dun8tan, is to be up in a few days.

Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 27 May 1898
TBy "Noogoora.'H As the eventful third of Jane approaches interest in the Convention Bill vote deepens. A month or so ago it did really seem as though the ordinary elector would hardly deem it worth his while to merely cross the street to vote. To-day there is a geaeral skirmishing round for mislaid electors rights ; at every street comer you will find tnen warmly discussing the Billj while the first greeting one guts in meeting a friend is pretty sure to be: " Well, how is Federation going?" It is well that it is bo j but at the same time I do not appreciate the extent to which mere sentiment is Bwaying the multitude. There are other considerations to be weighed. One of these is the matter-of-fact question—»" What nave we as New South Welshmen to gain individually or collectively and what to lose by the bargain?" This is a question that one and all of us should ask ourselves, and not be in too much of a hurry to jump at conclusions. 77 7? 1? If we in the eountrv have been deeply pl...

"HELD BY HE ENEMY." [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 27 May 1898
On Thursday night the Constance Hardie Silver King Company sub mitted the celebrated American military drama " Held by the Enemy" to a fair audience in the Royal Hall. The piece was capitally staged, and the performers one and al! were ac corded a good reception. The mili tary spirit now rampant lent an additional charm to the romance unfolded by the drama - builder. Right through the piece the theme hinged on the miniature battles between love and duty, in which the former of course iovariably conquered. Miss Constance Hardie captivated the audience with a bright, yet feeling representation of " Rachael Mc Creeryj" burdened with rival lovers (of rival military camps) and an aunt —•especially the aunt. Around the part of '• Thomas Bean/' the typical matter-of-fact war correspondent, Mr, Albert Lucas wove as cleyer a piece of character acting as it has been our lot to witness either iu town or country. We must con gratulate Miss Scott for her pour trayal of "The Aunt" ; and the other...

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, MAY 27, 1898. A Last Word. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 27 May 1898
THE AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, MAY 27, 1898. Before our nest issue is in your j hands the most momentous political i question ever submitted to you will ! have entered on the stage of virtual decision, and anything we co,uld then I say would be too late. It is not now a question of one candidate against J another, for one electorate in the! colony. It la a question of the in- J dependence and prosperity of New South Wales herself. You are asked to sacrifice that independence and to impair that prosperity—to sacrifice independence by accepting a Constitu tion in which one House of the Legislature will be dominated by the smaller colonies, and to sacrifice pros perity by taking on your shoulders a load of extortionate taxation, which you have just succeeded in shaking off. Those of you who vote " Yes" must be prepared to accept this immense responsibility with your eyes open, and not only must you accept this responsibility for yourselves, but you must be prepared t...
