Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 7 August 1903
Mining. Reefing is quiet at present, with the exception of the Proprietary, Bobby Bums, and Union. Tuckwell and party, tributors on the Crown, are crushing about 100 tons at the public battery. ' Parker and party, tributors in the Tunnel, cleaned un 180 tons at the Proprietary battery for a return of 2 dwts. This appenrs very poor, but as the stone is easily broken and crushed on the halves, it is acceptable these bnd times. Alluvial mining is looking well, es. peciallly as some of our townsmen have decided to help in the -erection of a puddling machine. . A meeting is to be held on Saturday next (to-morrow). Without a doubt, this is one of the best movements of the town for some time, and as all business people are concerned, we trust that arrangements will be made for the work being put in hand without delay. .''

St. Stephen's Church. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 7 August 1903
St. Stephen's Church. On Wednosday, at the invitation of the Eev Wilteon, we visited St. Step hen's Church, to inspect two memorial windows which, by means of the vitriux glacier process, have been il luminated' and depict the descent of the Saviour, from the cross, and his ascension into heaven. Both are works of art, and reflect groat credit on Mr. Wiltson who has been assidu ously engaged in the work for the past fortnight. In the former picture, in addition to the- Saviour, and the cross, is portrayed a group -comprised of Joseph of Arimathea, The Virgin Mary, Maiy Magdalene, John — the beloved, of Christ, and .others. On the Gothic is a symbol of the cross and the crown, worked in a background of red with the latin inscription In Cruce Solus, The Ascension of the Saviour is also beautifully completed. In the foreground are his disciples. The Gothic represents the Holy Ghost des cending in the form of a .dove with three rays symbolical of the Trinity.
