Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 17 June 1898

[By "Noogoora."] At the time of writing the Federal atmosphere is decidedly murky. The hope of the Anti-BiSlites (the Premier) on the one hand is bursting his vest buttons in an endeavor to get the other Colonial Premiers to join issue with him in getting the Conventioa Bill licked into more palatable form, while on''the other hand, Mr* Barton is — well simply lyiug dark on the weather bow. The nest week or two may or may not be fruitful of sur prises, but there is no gainsaying the fact that both sides are now clearing their decks for action at the general election. It seems to me at this far distance that the main qtfea to be decided at the geaeral, eleetion will be : The Bill as it stands or the Bill amended. With this cry to lace " the great enlightened," I rather fancy the crowd. dubbed the Anti BilUtes should have the better of the deal j; for since the Federal polling a no less authority than the Minister for Lands (Hon» J. H. Carruthers), who went bald-headed for the Con ven...

AUSTRALIA'S NATIONAL RESTORATIVE • CLEMENTS TONIC RESTORES VIGOUR, HEALTH AND VITALITY OF YOUTH. CURES WEAKNESS, LASSITUDE, DEBILITY, INDIGESTION, PROMPTLY AND PERMANENTLY. BEWARE 03? IMITATIONS. Mr. Thos. Snowden, "Budget" Office, Singleton, N.S.W., writes on August 19th, 1896 :—Some time ago life to me was not worth living; I simply had a mechanical existence. You will understand that being a printer my occupation is not con ducive to good health. I was working in a close office, and became tho< roughly exhausted. I lost all desire for recreation, and pleasant moments were foreign to me. I had no par ticular ailment, but I should almost have welcomed a cessation of earthly strife. But the darkest cloud has a silver lining. I read Bome testi monials, amongst which was one from Mr. J, C. L, Fitzpatrick M.P., who had been cured. I sent for two bottlea of Clements' Tonic, and after taking them I was quite well, in fact I never felt better, and I oheerfully bear witness to i...

CANOWINDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 17 June 1898

CANOWINDRA. Mr. James Miller, Crown Lands Agent at Oowra, submitted nine lots of town lands in the village of Canowindra on Thursday, and cleared the lot at slight advances on the upset prices, something like £63 being realised for the lot. There are hundreds of acres of Crown Land around Canowindra that the inhabitants are continually urging the Lands Department to make avaiU able for settlement, but so far they have failed. Occasionally a few lotB of town lands are offered, but they are at once snapped up. The weather continues very dry, although on several occasions lately, from appearances, a downfall of rain tjeerued im mine hit, still not a drop fell here. Grass has gone off, and water is short anywhere on the frontage.

MOUNT McDONALD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 17 June 1898

MOUHT McDON Al D. The weather, during the last few days, has been a bit showery here, but so far not enough has fallen to be of any benefit. This unparelleled drought has been the cause of great pecuniary loss to Mount McDonald, through hav ing no water for crushing purposes, .the companies have had to considerably reduce their hands; and the incon venience and insanitary conditions incurred by householders having to I purchase water for domestic purposes can only be known to the people who are now experiencing them. Repeated efforts have been made by the local Progress Committee, backed up by the member, Mr. M. T. Phillips, to have a reservoir constructed here, and although the department have con stantly been advised of the distress here, for the want of it, we have so far received only promises. Thio place is growiug into importance, and should get better treatment in a matter of such vital importance. We are suffering from an < pidemic of influenza, dozens of resident...

I get the credit of writing the articles and I am not going to defend the writer, although I do not think he overrates things in the least. However it is not fair to receive the credit of that which you do not do, instead of receiving credit for what you do.

[By Electric Telegraph.] SYDNEY, Thursday. Wheat is quoted at 3b 9d to 4s 5d J chickwheat at 3s to 3a 3d. The general feeling in political circles is that Parliament will not again meet, and that the Cabinet at to-morrow's meeting, may decide to dissolve forthwith ; in which event the general election will take place within three weeks' time. Within the past forty-eight hours magnificent rainfall has fallen throughout the colony, particularly in the far west. An extraordinary tragedy is re* ported from Freemantle, West Aus tralia. An old resident named Mason was leaving on a journey, and was in the act of Baying " Good-bye'' to his son, aged sixteen, when the latter drew a revolver and shot himself through the temple, dead. The father immediately disappeared, and it is sup posed also committed suicide. Alll the Ministers will now adopt united action with regard to the Con < vention Bill.
