Condobolin. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 21 January 1898
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.J The rainfall^ although short of what was required has done a lot of good, and with another similar fall later on, the condition of the couutry, so far as grass is concerned, will be far more satisfactory than it has been for some time past. A very great deal of inconvenience is being experienced in respect to the delivery of the Sydney mails, Al though the train is running into the town terminus^ arriving in the after noon, through some misunderstand ing the mail bags have to be conveyed from Bogan Gate by waggonette; consequently they arrive at the same time aB the out-going mail bag is made up for Sydney. Thus fully twenty-four hours are lost to people who haye important business to do with the city. It really looks as if the district had no representative in Parliament, or such a state of things would surely be looked into. Additional work is to be under taken in connection with the weir, by raising it some six . feet at the face. This will conserve ...

Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 21 January 1898
' (from our. own correspondent.) I The splendid performance of the Australians m the teat match has re awakened great enthusiasm in cricket, and crowds have stood throughout the day patiently watching theecorsng boardo opposite the newspaper offices of the city. Any special performance, or when centuries have been reached, had elicited clapping of hands and other manifestations of applause, while notices of the progress of the match have even been telephoned to the different suburbs, so that enthusi asts in the* game might know how things were going. The general opinion in Sydney is that the English men have been too hardly worked and a bit unfortunate, or they would not have eollapsed so completely. On the other hand, Howell's fine bowling and Darling's magnificent batting, with the all-round excellence of our men, both at the wickets and in tbe field, have, no doubt, brought about the present very gratifying results. A few weeks ago very hard things were being said about our Austr...

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE FRIDAY, JANUARY 21. 1898. Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 21 January 1898
THE AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE FRIDAY, JANUARY 21. 1898. iitorlil Hoti When Columbus made the egg stand on its end by tapping it on the table, there was an outcry from dis gusted spectators that he had not followed the rules. Had he followed them he would have failed. He took the most simple and direct means of effecting his end, and effected it. Hence their diBgust. The position seems parallel to that which obtains in reference to Mr. G. H. Reid'a ex pressed intention to have a referen dum on the fiscal question. Those who don't want to know what the people think about ifc are shocked. As long a8 Freetrade v. Protection occupies the public mind there is no danger of its being employed upon topics more disquieting. And as long as the fiscal question is always complicated with other considerations, such as whether Jones will make a better member than Smith or whether Tomkins will do more for the borough than SimkinB, there is no fear that it will ever be settled ; which is ...
