Mr. Shannon was suffering from inflammation of the lungs and other complications, at the time of the last sickness and death of Mrs. Hinchcliffe (with whom Mrs. Shannon lived for years as an adopted daughter). The event, no doubt, had a bad effect upon the patient, who was in a dying condition when the body of Mrs. Hinchcliffe was carried from his house.

Mining Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 28 January 1898

During the week No. 1 wiiaze, 700ft level, at the Bushman's mine was sunk 6ft; reef 12in ; level ex tended life. The backs are on usual quality of stone. The battery has crushed for the week 106 tons, and a clean-up will take place on Saturday. We were shown, a few days ago, some very fine gold-carrying speci mens, taken from Small and party's Lawyer's Puzzle claim, out near Banks'. At the Grolconda the past week has been entirely absorbed in squaring the shaft and placing ladders in position. At the bottom there is about two feet of stone of the same quality as usually sent to the battery. It seems a pity that this reef, which crushes so uniformly well, is not opened up with more vigor. In the mines that are moat financial, the progress in hard ground is necessarily slowj but where the management is handicapped by an extremely limited monthly expenditure the progression becomes painful. The London has again had a trial crushing. This time 41 tons were put through, and an apology fo...

Elector's Rights. Many persons are under the im pression that their elector's rights expired on the 31st December, 1896, but this is an error, as the Electoral Law Amendment Act of that year extended the currency of the rights, no matter whether they were issued before or after the passing of the Act, until the end of the year 1900. Electors wlio have removed from one district to another are reminded that if they desire to exercise their vote at the general election, they should apply for a transfer of their rights on com pletion of one month's residence in their new district.

Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 28 January 1898

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) We have been establishing a few records here lately in hot days. Although we do not come to within ten degrees of many country stations, there is no doubt that the muggy damp atmosphere of Sydney is very much more trying than the dry healthy beat of the interior. Still we have the advantage here of beiDg often blessed with a cool breeze from the sea after sun-set, which is the more enjoyable in proportion to the heat of the day. The male portion of the community, moreover, have un limited opportunities for a " dip" id the harbour afc the close of their day's work, the beneficial results of which are very great. The hotter the day, the more enjoyable the plunge pro vided for us by one or other of the many floating baths scattered about the harbour. If the Sydney folks are not among the healthiest of city people they have only themselves to blame. We have already had the cbol change, so thoughtfully provided foir us by Mr. Wragge, and at the time of writi...
