"Save me from my Friends." [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 25 March 1901
'Save me from my Friends.' Mb. Ashton may with truth say ' Save me from my friends.' In our contemporary's issue of last week a leading article appeared which puts Mr. Ashton as the one man above all others whom we have to thank for our Commonwealth Bill. Federalists do not want to disparage in any way the assistance given by Mr Ashton to carry the large majority vote at the last referendum. But in justice to those Federalists who consistently worked to carry the first Bill, %and whose efforts were successful in carry-, ing a majority vote for the said BilL^' in spite of Mr Ashton's efforts to defeat it, a. short resume of Mr Ash ton's attitude on Federation will be opportune at the present time : — Following are the extracts from Mr Ash ton's speech iu January 1797, when a candi date for the Federal Convention.

TELEGRAMS. SYDNEY, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 25 March 1901
TELEGRAMS. [From our own Correspondent.] SYDNEY, Monday. v Air Bartoa says that the electors in voting for the Senate have unquestion able right to cast a vote in any port of the Federal Division. As regards the House of Representatives Election, he thinks, there is only highly technical ob jections to voting in any part of the division and that it would not preju dice the election. Sir Win. McMillan on Saturday night declared himself not to be in favor of preferential treatment of British goods. There is ccnriderable doubt as to whether the State Parliament will meet or dissolve. A movement is on foot amongst some members both of the Opposition and of the Government supporters to hold a monster public meeting to discuss the situation and bring pressure if possible upon the Government to compel them either to meet Parliament or to dissolve without any further delay. Under the day labor system Mr O'Sullivan stated that the Reid Government employed 1,789 men wliile under the Lyne Gove...

Notes on a visit to Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 25 March 1901
Notes on a visit to Hny. 'T.B.' in Alhury Binner say«: — 'This was your scribe's first visit to the ' City of the Plains,' and it was a great surprise, for the Hay of reality surpassed the Hay of expectation, and hence was seen to the greater advan tage. 'A city of avenues' was the first exclamation -of the writer; for more beautifully aligned thoroughfares within and around an inland town he never saw in Australia. And all this is owing to the noble, never-failing Murrumbidgee. Verily, the ancient prophet was right when he- said, ' Everything shall live whither the river cometh.' That lifted river is the life of scores of beautiful gardens, of a park that shows choice and lovely botanical specimens, and of an irrigation area which, were it only worked for all it is worth, would make the environs of Hay the most picturesque and productive in Aus tralia. One cannot withhold a meed of commendation to the indomitable energy, through a. Beries of years, of these Hay people. By the aid o...
