' Professor David to Lecture in Katoomba. Arrangements have just been completed by our local School of Arts Committee with Professor David to give an illustrated lec ture in Katoomba Friday evening, October 8th, on the recent Antarctic Expedition to the South Pole of Lieutenant Shackleton and himself. This will be welcome news to the residents of this district, who have always taken a lively interest in the story of their hazardous mission, and the oppor tunity of hearing the story told by the Pro fessor and seeing the pictures of that un known region will be seized upon by a very large number of our residents. The con ditions under which Iyieiit. Shackletou per mits the lecture to be given necessitates a charge for admission,^ but this is a matter of very small moment, as such an oppor tunity may not again occur in a life time, and ever3rone at all anxious to hear the lecture will most willingly pay the small fee charged by the Committee, which has , been fixed at Is, and for reser...

Mr. James Dooley, M.I,. A., sends us the following letter : — Department of Lands, Sydney, 5th Sept., '09. Sir, — Referring to the letter of the 29th May, 1909, presented by you from Mr. E. A.

Wentworth Falls. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 25 September 1909

WentWorth Falls. [From our Own Correspondent.] Splendid rains fell on Thursday and Friday of last week, tanks being replen- ished and gardens revived. With the ad- vent of Spring, which spells life to the Mountain resideuts, Nature , is presenting herself in her most attractive and become-   ing garb. We have heard it remarked in the city that the Mountains are losing their attract- iveness, but judging by traffic receipts their charms seem to be proving more fascinat- ing and magnetic each season. As far as this village is concerned (and no doubt the other mountain resorts can vouch for the same) evidences of development are very apparent . One hears of leading business   men who are on the search for land suitable for building purposes, and the big blocks of land locked up at present will no doubt eventually succumb to tempting prices. A large company of the Chambers of Congress Delegates, numbering some 70   persons, including several ladies...

Wentworth Falls. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 2 October 1909

S Wentworth Falls. 1 i i [From our Own Correspondent.] Beautiful weather has prevailed during the past week, except on Monday, when there was rather a. sharp change, wintry conditions making them selves f eh. Spring has now come in real earnest, and the air is redolent of blossoms in bush, gar den and orchard. Many beautiful and brilliant wild flowers are lending a gay touch of color to the dells and hillsides. Numbers of visitors are spending Michaelmas in the village, inost of the cottages being occupied. But still Wentworth Falls is not sufficiently adver tised. One Victorian lady remarked the other day that she never heard of this place in Victoria : it. was always Katoomba or Iyeura. In the special issue of the ' ' Herald ' ' on Tuesday last this resort (Wentworth Falls) is described as possessing ' ' some of the choicest spots on the Mountains, and lovely sights innumerable— the famous Valley of Waters is musical with the sound of its tumbling rills.' We who live here know all...

CHALLENGE TO MR. DOOLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 2 October 1909

CHAI^F,NG£ TO MR. DOOIvKY. Sir. — ' Bunkum and Skite.'— Such are the. elegant terms used by Mr. Dooley in his letter to your paper of Saturday last* The same letter appeared in both Sydney papers, but Mr. Dooley is in error if he assumes that' I wished him to gamble. My desire was to impel him on to either prove his allegations against the Mines Depart ment, or exhibit his inabilitv to substantiate his wild and reckless charges. If he failed, which most assuredly ^e will, then I desired to fasten him to a penance for his sins by handing' over to the I/ithgow Hospital ^'100, for the fair-minded public are not likely to give him absolution unless ? he attempts . to clear himself from the gross slander he has created. It is no use Mr. Dooley trying to play the cuttle fish escape on the electors, for he will find that his aspersions, like the blackfellows' boomerangs, will turn back on j himself. Permit me to inform him that the j letters he refers to from me were statements in I regard...

Australia's Progress Under Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 2 October 1909

Australia's Progress Under Federation. The people of Australia are at present on the eve of entering upon a fresh decade of national life. Next year the Federation will complete its first decennial period, and the time is opportune for brief! 3^ glancing- at the progress which has been made since the various colonies of Australia threw in their lot together as one nation, and also for fore casting, as nearly as may be, what under a settled system of Liberal Government may be reasonably anticipated as regards the future. Figures to the ordinary reader are unfortunately too often regarded as a weari ness of the flesh, yet it is only by the aid of the statistician that we can form definite ideas as to our commercial and industrial progress. ? Iyimit of space, at present at any rate, compel us to merely touch the fringe of a great subject. Taking first the ques tion of population, we find the Common wealth has increased from 3,765,339 in 1900 to 4,319,626 in 1909, or a gain of 554,287. ...
