BRITTON'S GANG. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 September 1902
BEITTON'S GANG! During 1722-3 four escaped convicts Beaven, Britten, Jefkins, and Brown, keptthe country side in terror. Beaven was a native of the Hunter, in New South Wales, and had been transported to Van piemen's Laud for horsesteal ing. Britton was a convict froin the old country, hie offence being: smug gling ; but during the affray in which he was captured he saved the life of one of tho coast-guards, who had been knocked overboard, and the sentence of death passed upon him was on that account commuted to penal servitude for life. After several assignments to settlers, during which ho made a very bad name for himself, he took tho bush with Beavan, who had ab sconded from the Cataract Hill gaol gang. Before the two men had been out very long they killed Mr. Bavtlett and his servant at the Supply Mill. The murder was discovered by a Mr. Cathcart, from whom the police re ceived information, while a clerk in Commissariat Department named Wil son went to bring Mrs. Bartlett away f...
BREVITIES- [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 September 1902
BREVITIES.. We regret to report the sudden de mise e£ Mr. T. J. Connolly, lata of Forbes, father of our local saddler, Mr. T. Connolly. Death was due to apo plexy. A representative . gathering of Pas toralists, throughout the district, met on Saturday last for the purpose of fixing the rate for shoo ring during the present season. A full report will be found in another column. At the Crown Lands sale, held at Dubbo on the 28th inst., the area of 67 acres 2 roods, situated iu close proximity to the 'Indian's Garden,' near Peak HilL was withdrawn, thtire being no buyer. The block of 30 acres, next Govern ment Tank, was purchased bv Mr. W. F. Uinpleby, at the upset price. A slander is like a hornet, if you cannot strike it dead at first blow, bet ter not strike at all. A mooting of the Sports Committee, in connection with Gala Day. is to be held to-morrow (Saturday). Rain to tho extent of 88 points fell at Peak Hill, during Saturday night last. Much heavier falls, however, were registe...
THE STATE BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 September 1902
THE STATE BANK. The State Bank question has cropped up.again in Parliament, and, apparen tly, until tho milennium arrives, it will continue to crop up periodically without getting any ' for'ador.' For the Slate Bank is not a novelty by any means. In fact, along with local Go vernment, it had been prated of, and promised any time these twenty_ years. And still we wait for it and welcome its appearance as a subject for discus sion, not hoping now that it will reach the haven of the Statute Book, but rather looking for its certain and un timely end with that strange niomful pleasure that enables us to say 'I told you so ' \rith morbid satisfaction when even our most fond desires are over whelmed in some self-prophesied catas trophe. This time it was Mr. Rose, the member for Argyle, who brought the matter forward. Mr. Rose is noth ing, if not earnest, and, poses as an authoritr on finance with much more reason than the average statesman can hope to j»ose J^jalnylhing at all, Except a ? ...
YEOVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 September 1902
YMGV&& . . (FfiOM CUE OWN Oo&HESPOXDEOTi) By all appearances the drought lias broken at last, in this quarter, much to the delight, (I can safely say) of everybody in the -district. Even .now the green blades of gi-ass-may be seen 'where only a week or two' since was nothing but' sand and dust. There is no doubt but tins rain, falliner like it has done in both these late falls will do an enormous amount of good every where. In hilt week's fall we had an inch and some few points. 'Then again from Thursday last up to date two inches and ten points were registered. Some of our farmers were of the opin ion that their crops were a complete failure, others agaiu are of the same opinion as Mr. John Hoare of Guerie who was experimenting on wheat sown some months which came up and died off again from the dry weather, and then alter being watered, sprang up and grew quite luxuriantly. The same to some refers of the crops around this district which 'had been given up as...
Important Meeting of Pastoralists. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 September 1902
Important Meeting of Pastoralists. A large and representative gathering of Pastora lists, assembled at the Com mercial Hotel on Saturday afternoon last, to discuss matters in connection with the action of the A.W.U., in demanding the. increased rate for shearing. The liveliest interest was manifested in the proceedings through out, by. those present. A number of letters wrire read from prominent Pastoralists throughout the district, signifying their determination to give no more than tho £ 1 per hundred. Mr. B.Baleoine, of Coradgery Sta tion, occupied the chair. He explained that the meeting had been called together to decido what rate was to be given for shearing, in this district during tho current year. Hitherto, £1 had been the recognised figure, but tho A.W.IT, had seen fit to demand 22/6 per hundred for its members. There had recently been brought into existence a new union — tho Machine Shearers Union — and this body was willing to allow its members to shear for the £1 per hu...
Editorial Notes. SHEARING DISPUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 September 1902
Editorial Notes. SHEAEING DISPUTE. PitOBABLY there is, at the pre sent moment, no more important question than the above. That it is of a niost serious nature, and concerns the great majority, goes without saying. When we con sider that our National Industry — the industry from which we, as a nation, derive the major portion of- our wealth, after having passed through one of the most trying seasons to .which it has ever been subjected, is con fronted with this additional trouble, we cannot fail but have grave apprehension as to the ultimate outcome. Without entering into the merits or de merits of the case, it must be admitted by all that the present was a most inopportune time for the shearers — or rather their Principals — to demand the in creased rate. ' Some considera tion should have been, extended to the Pastoralists who are, with out doubt, the greatest losers throughout the country, and after having stood the strain which they have been called upon to endure for many months ...
