Wynne* : The Chairman intimated that' the meeting had been convened with the obiect of considering; the advisability of holding a day's races during Show week. ? . . ? ? Mr. Yeo was of opinion, that taking all things into consideration, the Club . could not,do better than hold a day's races. There were a few pounds on; hand, and it was always an under stood thing that a meeting be held at Show time. If the Club were to be kept together it was necessary to hold races. He moved that a day's racing be held on Friday, the 24th July. Mr. Ring, in seconding' the motion, said there was nothing like getting as many people into the town as possible.

WATEEFOED is well-known in this neighbourhood. Originally the property of Mr. Dennis Madden, it was acquired by Mr. Thatcher, Some two and a half years ago it was purchased by Mr. T. Rice. It consists of nearly 8,000 acres and is wire-netted. The homestead is prettily situated on the banks of the Bogan, six miles from the Peak. Everything about it points to careful arrangements and good taste. A good shearing shed and all externpl arrangements are in keeping with the nice and comfortable private house. Mr. Rico believes in good sheep, of which he has a fair number. He has also some excellent horses. The soil of the Waterf ord estate' is in a great measure, particularly adapted for growpg wheat — as indeed is 90 per cent of the land between Parkes and Trangie. On Waterford 340 acres are under wheat this year, the greater portion of which is on the fine alluvial flat running parallel with the river. Oak, box, pine and yarren are the timbers met with, and their presence is a .sufficien...

Sydney Day by Day. BY "NEDI WOOLI." [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 June 1903

Sydney Day by Day. ? By 'NediWoou.' The .society for the prevention of cruelty to animals has taken exception to the ancient sport of coursing. In a recent letter to the Sydney Press, the Secretary of the society alluded very severely to the ladies who attended coursing matches. The good man also lavished much honest sympathy on the hare. Being interested in field sport generally, present scribe took a run out to Kensington on Thursday, occa sion being second 'meet' of the Kensington Coursing Club. , A number of nice-hand-fed hares were liberated and a large percentage of the animals eluded the dogs and escaped. On enquiry I found that the life of a 'coureing' hare is of much greater ease and security than the wild animal. Pussy, at time of -purchase by the Club is valued at 5s, when fed and trained on maize, carrots, and other delicacies, her value increases to a sovereign, and the officials take every precaution to preserve her life, as she is somewhat of an asset.

THE LABOUR PARTY. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 June 1903

THE LABOUR PARTY. {To the Editor Peak Hill Exprets.) Sir, — 'The coming events cast their shadows before.' The Great Mogul writes to say that he is going to do it in the Carruthers' interest this time, and the pilot baboons are out already. One correspondent wants to see the local Labor Man get the run and the other the whole party. Small wonder that he is over-awed at the delightful prospect ! Certainly the Labor Parjy were sent into Parliament to abolish Class Legislation. That of the minor ity for the minority. Strange to say that select little class never objected to' class legislation while they were get ting the full benefit of such— but now ? The Labor Party never tried to abolish all class legislation, because it is simply impossible, since there will al ways be classes whilst there is civiliza tion, and given voting powers, the class with the biggest votes will con trol the laws. But the Labor Party is substituting one system of class legis lation for another— that of the m...

Editorial Notes. CLOSER SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 June 1903

Editorial Notes. ; CLOSER SETTLEMENT. The question of closer settlement has become one of direct importance in which all classes of the community are more or less concerned, and it seems a pity that past legislation so positively ignored its possibilities as a national problem for future Governments to have to contend with, as it^has done, with the result that the public estate has passed into the hands of a few capitalists, or institutions rather, that are run by capitalists, from whom it has to be repurchased at a considerable Advance on the original sale price. That an absence of forethought and want of penetrative grasp dominated our lawmakers of the past is very 'evi- dent to-day, and the existing Govern ment have to bear the brunt of past mistakes brought about, by such, and stand face to face with the clamor of an increased population for homes, and a diminished estate with which to supply the demand. When the Robertson Land' Act was introduced over 40 years ago it was hoped ...

Agatha Webb. THE PURPLE OECHU). OHAPTER XIX. rOOR PHILEMON'. Mr. Sutherlunrl was taken nback. He had noticed this fact, and had found it a hard one to understand. To ascertain what her explanation of it might be, hp replied at once : ' There is a change in him — a very evident change. What is the occasion 'of it ? To whnt do you ascribe it, Agnes?' How breathlessly he waited for her answer ! Had she any suspicion of 'the awful doubts which* were so deeply agitating himself that night ? She did not appear to have. ?' I hesitate,' she faltered, 'but not from any doubt of Frederick, to tell ' you just what I think lies at the bottom *-£ the sudden change observable in him. ' Hiss Page (you see, I can name her, if you cannot) has proved herself so unworthy of his regard that the shook he has received has opened his eyes to certain failings of his own which made his weakness in her regard possible. I do not know of any other explanation. Do you ? * At this direct question, breathed thoug...

Local and General. ' The schedules in connection with the forthcoming Show, have been dis tributed. ' ';/ Those not receiving one, and desi rous of exhibiting should make appli cation to the Secretary. The Bub-committee, consisting of Messrs. Whitmill, Carmichael, Jones, Newbigging and Say, are universally praised for the sohedule compiled. With fine weather the attendance should be a record one. The Condobolin Gun Club, which has just been. formed, hold fortnightly shoots. In place of pigeons, sparrows are used. A number of selectors in this district hare been summoned to attend before the Land/Board at Dubbo, on the 16th inst., to show reason -why the rent on their holdings has nqt been paid. This is strange action indeed on the part of the Department. The reason is apparent.
