WALLI. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 10 June 1898

WALLI. Since last writing we have been favoured with a little raiD, but un fortunately it has been of much too light a character to be of any material benefit beyond causing the germina tion of the seed already sown. Indeed, taken on the whole, Walli looka worse now than at any period since the date of its settlement. Grass is so scarce that any of our farmers possessing large stock are compelled to feed the poor famished animals on hay or chaff, and Ihoae who have sheep have been forced in the majority oF instances to remove them to " fresh fields and pastures new/' while the few that have been left here are sustained by their owners-cutting acrub for them. Ploughing ia m full swing and some of our yeomen have very con siderable areas under tillage already I fear much, however, that, as the ground is beginning to get very hard, further ploughing must cease unless we get a good steady downpour very soon.

Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 10 June 1898

Qsr Bydaey Littgr. (from our own correspondent.) There has been only one thing happening m Sydney during the past week, that is of course federation. On polling night enormous crowds were in the streets completely blocking the traffic. Busscb crawled up the by-streets in a shame faced way, and the cable tram down King street, wise in its generation, gave up running. Outside various newspaper offices enormous crowds began to gather as early as five o'clock. The most convenient scoring board was, undoubtedly that of the " Daily Telegraph,'' You could stand in King-street, and there before you could be seen in lareje letters the names and numbe.ra of every electorate in the colony which were constantly being altered whilst the totals in still larger figures were kept constantly before the immense audience. In the middle of the board was a novelty in the way of a barometer, which, though hardly a necessity was certainly an unique idea. Black for "Yes" and red for " No,'* the barometer k...

CARGO. The return to Cargo uow and then of old hands, who can boast of being diggers here some twenty years ago is noticeable, but for years past they have wandered about in search of better luck and not having found it returned to their old haunts. There has been of late an unuBual amount of sickness here, principally of the influenza type. Sharp frosts and fine days have been the ruling characters of the weather of late. The local flour mill has been very busy for some time past. Mining matters here are rather quiet. The rumored sale of the Iron clad mine has again turned out a failure. This is a matter for regret. Mount Derward mine cannot get on well for want of water.
