Fi[?]eld [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 11 February 1898

("PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Mr. A. Stewart, of Peak .Hill/ addressed the electors here for about two hours on Saturday night last. He shows a very great knowledge of the mining laws and their many defects, and has left a very good imprc-ssiou here. Many of Mr Tom Brown's best friends after hearing -him shake their heads and say that Stewart will be a hard nut to crack. My own opinion is that Brown will have to work hard and leave no stone unturned if he wishes to come out on top at the next election. Bush fires are very, prevalent. Tne township to-day is enveloped.in smoke. The heat still continues'and worst of all no sign of rain. ' Oar new telephone is working very, successfully, and -is proving a great boon to the district. I should like to see our Progreps Committee exert their energies, and obtain for us some of the following :— Clearing the road from ITifield to Trundle ; a grant of money for fencing in our cemetery ; establishing a m&ney order office and Savings Ba...

Dandaloo. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 11 February 1898

/rmrtM mm. own nnTJi? TCSPn ndt^'ntt Judging from the hazy appearance of the horizon lately, bush fires must be raging in close proximity to us. These dread fiends wreck terrible destruction on all sides when they start taking fences, houses, and grass in their flight. It seems a mystery how some of them get a start at all. One often hears of a case where a bush fire has started apparently from nothing, that no one was within miles of the scene when the flames leaped out first, and again of how a flash of lightuing has given it the first impetus. I think the mosfc frequent cause is an old log or tree being left burning, or perhaps a match being thrown down by someone riding along. There is a cricket match on the tapis for Saturday next, 12th instant. The Danotaloonians are going to try conclusions with, a team down the river, and judging from the form shown by some of the players recently, with pick-handles,, the down the river players will not take away the ashes. There is to be a'...

I WELLINGTON, A man uamed Lynch appeared be fore the Wellington bench on Tuesday charged with passing a coin at the bazaar for a sovereign.

Mesdames ftvgate, Hy'eronimuB, Con nor and Miss Veech gave evidence, also Constable Malone, who arrested him, and Lynch was find £6 or four months' gaol.

Says— Mr M> JOHNSTON, CSeelong, Victoria. who writes on the 19th September, 1896 :—Those who have never had a day's illness cannot know the feeling of gratitude that permeates the system of one who, after days, weeks, and years of sickness, has been restored to strength and .vigor through the dis covery of one who has used his brains for the purpose of restoring strength to the sick. X was one of these. For a considerable time I was troubled with extreme lassitude. I thought it was^ nothing but laziness, and tried to work it off, but it was of no avail.

WYALONG. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 11 February 1898

WYALONG. As a further illustration of the assertion that the miner's life is a perilous one, it may be mentioned that two accidents, in addition to the fatal one already recorded, occurred during the week. In one case a dynamite cap exploded while in the hands of a miner named Steele, in flicting serious injuries, and in the other a falling bucket just grazed a man working below. A fatal accident occurred at the Perseverance claim on Wednesday night to a miner named John Stan ford. He was married, and leaves six children. From the evidence adduced at an inqueBt which was held on Thursday ' afternoon, it appears that Stanford waa workiug in the 225ft level, and was in the act of drawing out a misfired hole, which 20 minuteB previously had been charged by his, mate, Walter Barnett jun, when suddenly the charge exploded, and he received the full force of the discharge.
