The Rush. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 3 June 1898
"The " Daily Telegraph's" mining. reporter has just inspected the rash near Banks' and this is what he has to saV about ^ • , . , The site of the new rush is at Goobang Creek, about eight miles north of Parkes, and three miles west nf where the Wellington-road crosses j the creek. This creek runs a long Stance to the west, and junctions with the Billabong Creek, which ap pears to be the general outlet of many the old leads. The course of r(,nbaa« Creek is between low ranges fn° which, at various points, gold hearin* quartz reefs have been worked. from the junction of the Goobang and Billabong creeks upwards no prospect ing was done for alluvial until recently, and this seems strange, considering the richness of other gullies to the south andsouth-west, and'thelikelihood of so long a natural drainage channel | the depository of gold-laden I detrftes from the surrounding hills.

"SALVO-JURE" IN REPLY. (TO THE EDITOR 'WESTERN CHAMPION.') [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 3 June 1898
•'SMTO-JIffi" DC] ESEPlffo (TO THE EDITOR ' WESTERN CHAMPION.') Sir.—I can give ' A Farmer' credit for one fching. In his evasive letter in your last issue be is about as careful in dodging the truth as he would be in ploughing around stumps which he had forgotten to remove, Ho charged Mr. Gardiner with making a certain statement, and I claim that ' A Farmer' could not prove his charge, and he has failed to do it. In my letter of the 12th I said 'A Farmer' commenced with a ' mistatement or a falsehood,,' I left it quite open, and now ' A Farmer' accepts the cap 1 false hood,' presumably the most fitting one. He also says that I am the falsifier ; echo may answer or explain, but ' A Farmer' conveniently forgot to do so. If he felt he was on safe ground he might have proved his charge from the verbatim reports of Mr. Gardiner's address. But, ae evidence that his stock of proof had run out, he intro duces from the stock of his reserve store such things as kidney, Pro tection. dirt and ...

MESSES NSILD AND HOLM AN. On Wednesday night, Mr. J. C. Neild, the member for Paddington, and Mr. W. A. Holman, delivered two interesting addresses in opposi tion to the Convention Bill, iu Blarney's Hall. The Mayor,presided, and the building was packed to the doors, a goodly .number of ladies being also present. Mr. Neild, by way of preface, promised to abuae no onej and lo speak with the recognition of that responsibility which every man should when addressing his fellows on such a very momentous subject. A.t the outset, the Bill contained many good clauses which called for no criticism, and certainly no con demnation m3 but, on the other hand, there were clauses that he could not accept, and on a few of them he intended to speak that night. Before plunging into the subject matter of the Bill, he desired to say a few words concerning those who were supporting aud those who were opposing the Bill.

(from our own correspondent.): The weather during the past few days has beeu extremely cold, and the mornings have dawned showing thick white froBts, As these frosts nave been the first we have had this Winter, we naturally enough feel them much more than we will later on. The prevailing opinion seems to be that we shall have an exceptionally bitter winter, and certainly indications just now point tDat way. This outlook is not so pleasing to all parties as it might be. Those who will have eweB lambing must necessarily experience some hardships in weathering the cold winter, and in plenty of places this year the grass is not m such abun dance as one might wish it to be, Pastoralista, when one comes to think over it, have not had sucii magnifi cent returns during the past two or three seasons as many might think. The scarcity of grass and water gener ally, and the expense they have been compelled to meet in scrub cutting, fencing and other things (of course improvements to their holdi...

Mr. Reymond was the first speaker. He said when he first spoke ou the aubjecfc he dwelt on the necessity existing loir Federation. Now appar ently all were agreed Federation was necessary, but it was over the lines on which Federation was to be brought about that thev differed.

Federation Serman. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 3 June 1898
On Sunday evening Bev F. G. Neild delivered a sermon in St George;s Cburch on Federation. The rev. genUeman took for his text the words of 4-II Phillipians, II " Look not every man on his own things but every man also on the things of others." During the coming week he said the people would be called on to decide a vastly important question. Never before in the history of the colonies had such a momentous matter as that of the Federal issue to be decided on 3rd June, been placed before tbe electors of the colonies. It was a grand ideal "One people one flag, one destiny." But it might be asked what had the church to do with Federation ? To answer this they had only to look at the pages of past history to see the marvellous influence wrought bv the church on nations in the by-gone past. This was nofc a party matter by any means. He was not there to urge them to vote one way or the other, but to try and set before them the true spirit in which this matter should be considered, and the ...
