CASUAL COMMENTS. (Contributed.) GOOD LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 22 August 1902
CASUAL COMMENTS. (By Pelican.) (Contributed.) Good Laxd. Several estates are being thrown at the Government to be purchased, cut up into small areas for closer settle ment. The Gloucester Estate is one of these. It is oil the coast, and lies berwoen the- Hunter and Manning xi Ivors, jruufuu , in mesa irouuer, drought-dried lands, far removod from rivers and cities will wonder, with con siderable amazement, why this coastal country, should remain unsettled -in tliis year of grace. Well ! the owners of it live in England, and are called' somewhat ironically the Australian Agricultural .Company. ? This land is only a portion of a fabulous area, that was granted to this company to promote settlement — agricultural set tlement I presume by the title. — They have succeeded in Hacking settlement. My opinion is, they should forfeit the land as they, have not fulfilled the conditions of their charter. At least one good influonfce inheres to our own. land tax, it is mating this company sit un...

Peak Hill and District beauty spot. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 22 August 1902
Peak Hill and District * beauty spot. We would direct the attention of our readers to the apparently ruthless destruction to Kurrajong trees around Clagga and New Discovery Springs — Trees up to 2ft. Cinches in diameter Jiftvn linen latelv ehojmed down: instead of being lopped. The reserve around these springs should be under the control of tho local Municipal Council, and the wil ful destruction of the one beauty spot in the district bo prevented. The expenditure of a small sum of money in clearing a bush track of about 2 miles, would enable -vehicles to 'bo driven within half a mile of the princi pal .spring. .Notices_ could bej posted, warning persons against removing or destroying ferns and shrubs, rustic seats and tables be erected, and places for fires fixed up, so as to prevent the flames spreading. The residents of Peak Hill, MePhail, Tomingley, and other places, would then be .enabled to- visit the- resort without the discomfort at present ex perienced.
Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 22 August 1902
Water Supply. Mr, Woods, Inspector of the Public Water Conservation Branch, visited Peak Hill on Saturday last in connec tion with the proposed Weir across the Began. The gentleman spent some considerable time in investigating the different places, and finally chose a QLHJU OV111G 1UV 1CCV UOIAJIJ U1Q, IUX1.V-UVU ?of the 10 mile Creek and the Bogan Uiver. Here he anticipates that a 5ft. Weir, will back the water up the river for n distance of about 3 miles, and would 6ocure a storage capacity of some seventy, million gallons'. The cost of such weir, he estimates at be tween £300 and 350. Mr. Woods recommends that the Peak Hill water supply, should emanate from this 'Source, and considers that on iioa tank to hold some 30;O00 gallons, raisedJSO ft., would be sufficient for the town's requirements. With this objeot he requested the local Council to select a site for the tank, and they have decided that the most suitable place would be on the spur near the Bolly BUtti's claim.
