Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 31 July 1903
Mining. In consequence of the pejor quality gold which has been obtained from several crushings, proBpecting.has not ^been so freely indulged in as' was tko case a few weeks' back'. 'Peak Hill gbld.in the' past,: was noted 'for its hight value,' but' the gold turned out lately is quite 'the reverse. We are sure, however, if the fault lies with the 'battery, the owners will lose no time in remedying it, as poor gold is no rcoommendation to a plant. Last week, Frazer and. party, from tho Great Eastern, cleaned.. up about 75 tons for a return of 5 dwts tothe tcni. ''?'?' Tuckwell and .' party, tributors on the Crown, have Some 100 tons broken and are still at work. Some of the stone shows gold freely and should crush about 4 dwte. As the oro is easily broken tliis will pay good wages. On the Bobby Bums,. Harris Bros, have about 30 tons broken. Accord ing to prospects this parcel will crush hotter than t.lifi last. viz.. 9 d*rts. , On the Boulder, Hayes and party, cleaned up 8 loads for...

Bazaar. ,. The Annual Bazaar, in aid of the funds of the Roman Catholic Church was held during Show week. It was no exception to the general rule, and the ladies were quite as aggressive as heretofore. The takings, though fall ing short of last year's event, must be looked upon, in consideration of the sen son, and the scarcity 'of money, as highly satisfactory. As 'usual, Mr Souter acted in' the capacity of honor ary Secretary, and carried out the dut ios of that office iu a most exemplary manner. There -were three stalls,— the Bachelor's Stall, presided over by Mesdainos Gibson, Pliillips, Walsh, McDermott, aud the Misses G. and M. Patterson, Melville, Walker, T.

Sir Henry Parkes. *M' writes in ike SnUet-iti :— The very last time SirHenry Purkes was in the city of Sydney, I was standing about 6 p.m. at the corner of Elizabeth and Hunter streets, when 1 caught sight of the veteran limping feebly along from the direction of Parliament House. As he approached, I saw a look of unutterable sadness in his ghostly face, ana a strange sardonic ngnt in ms eyes. As he stood waiting for an Aunandale tram, with hi6 eyes fixed on the ground and the crowd bustling around him, no one gave more than a passing glance, and even several M.P. brushed by him uuheedingly. He was so lonely, so depressed and mani festly feeble tliat,Tilthongh not intima tely acquainted with him, I felt im pelled to inquire how he was. ' I am very tired,' he eaid— ' very weary ! Nothing interests me now ; and I feel that I do not care.' ' Tou are not well,' I-ventured. ' Physically,' he replied, ' as well as ever J My frame is full of life and would hold out for years if I wished it...

Whether tho preferential tariff sug gested by Mr. Chamberlain would prove a boon or otherwise to the British Empire is a subject which is, at the present time, exciting ? much ?controversy. The question is hardly likely to be determined satisfactorily until such a tariff is in operation, and its merits or demerits have been proved, ft was thus Bile Beans were proved.

Mr. Slealh has moved in the Assem bly, that leave be given to bring in a bill to abolish the system, known as the coupon system; The Lachlander reports that Condob olin possesses some up-to-date 4!owl fanciors — But they mostly fancy other people's fowls. At the last Dubbo Show the en trance fees amounted to £49 18s, at our own show close upon £60 were received in this connection.
