Australian Bushranging IN THE Early Days. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 18 July 1902

Australian Bushranging IN THE BY CHARLES WH The early history of bushranging in   Australia will never be written, for the facts have never been recorded.   Limited though the colony was in extent, its literature - even its journal- ism - was still more limited. Moreover, the first men who "took the bush" were neither important or interesting   enough to obtain more than a passing   mention in those Governors' despatches which are our chief authorities for   early colonial history. Owing to the stringent military rule during the first years of convict settlement, the un- known character of the country, and the absence of prey, in the shape of men with money or other possessions (the aborigines being the only occu- pants of the soil outside the properly formed settlements), those who were called bushrangers then were simply men who had broken away from their gangs in the hope of escaping from   the torture ...

LORD SALISBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 25 July 1902

LORD SALISBURY. Rumoubs have been current for some time that the aged Statesman who has led the destinies of England for so many years was on the verge of lus re tirement, and we could therefore feel but little of surprise at the news that rumour had been converted into fact. Lord Salisbury has never been the man he was before the noblo-hearted partner of his life was taken from liim. . Until that sad event fell on him like a cloud he had evidenced — as much as any man so thoroughly reserved as the Head of the House of Cecil could ever evidence — the joy and zest he felt in his great work ; since she who had made his life so happy for him left him desolate, he lias worked on in grim and joyless silence, more reserved than ever, and working only since he could not leave his post when England was in difficulties. Now, however, when the war is done — that his coun try seems to lie upon the verge of many peaceful years, that he has done his work— he seeks the longed-for rest and hands ....

OUT BACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 25 July 1902

OlTTBACK. The great topic engaging the attention of every class of individual at the pre sent moment is the weather. Every one is feeling the effects of the pre vailing drought to a greater or less degree. During its early stages it was not considered by the residents of any, great -moment. In our immediate vicinity the predictions foretold by Oronea Pressa, served to buoy up the lous extent, and although his forecast that heavy rains, would fall in Juno,'; were not fulfilled, still the hope in- : fused by these forecasts was such as to prevent a universal despondency set ting in, which could not have had other than a calamatous effect. In the direction of Bullock Creek scarcity of water seems to be the settler's - main grievance, some of whom are compelled to cart from five to twelve miles for even domestic purposes, as well as all requirements of stock. This neces sarily entails heavy labor and loss of time. Then there is the expense of buying fodder, as everything living has to b...
