Electors' Rights. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 24 November 1900
Electors' Rights. Some doubt exists in the minds of many electors as to the ultimate fate of their rights. A few mouths since those were all called in to undergo tlio process of stamping, the principal act providing that this should be done be fore the end of 1900. A number have been returned stamped, hut the others have not since been heard of. It ap pears that in the middle of the stamp ing process the Parliamentary Electoral Law Suspension Aet was passed. This measure suspended the operation of the principal ac*. during 1900, both in regard to stamping rights and to the preparation of new rolls. The 1111 bt imped rights are now to be returned to electors, with a circular explaining the position of affairs. Tlio Govern ment is also promising every day to go on with the Parliimen tary Elections Amendment Bill now before the House. This measure cancels all rights now in existence, whether stamped or un stamped. It also provides for the issue of new rights, though this provision may ...

Personal and Political [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 24 November 1900
Personal andP.olitical No Ministerial ?.pcch before a country audience is cmipleto without reference to the contngents and the plague. But no Govrnment can live on its past. It is a (overnment with a present that hangs o office. It is quite possible that the present session will run on till 'Xmas Eve. Members want to talk as much as possible to t-her • constituents. They fear a Reidian surprise motion, and an early appeal to the country. There should be md anxiety over the state.of Lord Hopetoun's health. Although His Excellency has a strong head he has a weak constitution. That malady conlractt-.d in India will not lessen under the heavy, distressing heat of a Sydney summer—pliw in auguration festivities and responsi bilities. Mr. Reid must have surprised free traders and amused protectionists by declaring that wines of local produc tion only should have been ordered for the Commonwealth hospitalities. Sir William Lvne ordered imported wines to the tune of XG000. Mr Reid, however, ...

THE Wyalong Advocate, SATURDAY, NOV. 24, 1900. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 24 November 1900
THE Wyalong Advocate, SATURDAY, NOV. 24, 1900. Now that the Farmers and Settlers of this district have decided to form a branch of the Farmers' and Settlers' Co-operative Association, a next good move would be the establishment of a Co-operative mill at Wyalong. It ia « wonder there has not been a flour mill established ho re bofore now. The fiftie is just about ripe for the forma tion of Co-operative milling Co. in this-district, and there is no doubt that i£it were only initiated the movement ■would go ahead. From returns to hand, thero is, if anything, more wheat grown within jj.'asy distanco o£ Wya long, to more than keep an ordinary mill inconstant employment. But in the event of there boing a deficiency it could very easily be made up from the neighboring districts. There is no ' doubt but that a mill, and especially a co-operative concern, would secure the trade as far into the west as Lake Oudgellico and Iiillston, as the growers and consumers all along th»t route &l...
Darlington Point. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 24 November 1900
Darlington Point. (By our Correspondent.) Your old cot respondent was glad' to receive copy of Aijvocath, and wishes tliu Proprietor .success in his new ven ture, It will Ijo interesting to get W'yalong news, and your scribe lias reason to believe that " copy " from Central lliverina will not bo uniriter esling to Wyi.long readers. We are now in the midst of the hay-harvest; and the wheat-harvest, sucli as it is, will not bo long delayed. Speaking geneially, the crops are comparative failures. Experienced local farmers-, however, are of opinion that a return of 8 to 10 bushels to the acre will about, strike the average yield. The Octols 'r drought accounts, of coursp, for t. i> meagre result—the very anti climax of our hopes ! The hay crop is abundant and of good quality, and every " Cookie " has his stack or stacks. Clouds of smoke are seen every day upon the horizon, and settlers are in imminent danger from bush fires. Never did the writer see a pasturage so arid and inflammabl...
Bush Sketches. UTILITY [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 24 November 1900
[By Xi. UTILITY " I see you have boen getting into hot watci* about your ring barking sketch. " Utility " lias been going for you " " No I don't think so. I agree with almost everything " Utility " has to say. The only faults I have to find with him are that he hasn't read my Sketch carofally, and ha assum es that there must necessarily be an antagon ism between beauty a id utility. I dis tinctly sail " Let them clear their grass paddocks, (li.it .is necessary," therefore you see I am quite in ngree ineut with Utility concerning his chief contention. With regard to the as sumption that the aesthetic, iu its re stricted sense of giving pleasures, is opposed to the useful, I giant that there is a general idea that this is so, but I by no incuts grant tint the idea is correct. Almost everything that is useful may give pleasurable sensations or at least it need not shock. Take the things I pleaded for in my sketch. &lt;; Oinamcnfril trees here and there." .How useful these would...

'This is precisely what happened in the present instance. The inspector wrote to the ship-owners (Uniutniltnij a fee. ooo Unless drastic reform is promptly entered upon, the tipping syste n may spread to other departments of the Public Service.
