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

(prom our own correspondent.) The pasturage here since the late rain is fairly good, but more rain is wanted to afford a supplv for the com ing winter, and revive, the maize crops. I regret to state that Mrs. McLach lan, a widow, who carries on a poultry farm here, lost ninety-nine fowls in one night recently, all bitten on the b&ck of the necks, supposed to be done by native cats. Six thousand five hundred and forty bags of wheat Were trucked at the railway station here during last month. This fact should speak well for our district. What we want now is a btidge erected over the MandagSry Creek about a mile arid a half south of the railway station. At present the teamsters bring their loads to the crossing, take' half the load oft, cross over with that and return for the re maining half. 1 consider this state of things shows a great lack of good man agement on the part of our Works De partment. I learn that there is only £100 to be expended on the Manildra to Toogong road t...

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

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) On Monday the poll in connection with the municipal election was de clared. The result; was as follows: — Alex. Gilchrist, 247; A. J, Reymond, 209 ; W. S. Hudson, 197; and J. H. Bates, 155, As will be seen the three late aldermen were returned. The town for the last few day p. has been enshrouded in smoke, coming ap parently from the south-west but it is impossible to say exactly where. At the Police Court on Saturday, Robert McGaffney was committed for trial, on a charge of uttering counter feit half-crown. Accused was passing through the town when he is alleged to have passed the coin at Mr. J. Dean's Hotei. Another intending candidate has come forward iD the person of Mr. G. F. Hutchinson, who I understand will run in the interests of Freetrade. Mr. Charles Rowley has been elected mayor of Forbes for the current year.

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18. 1898 Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

THE AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTAflVE. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18. 1898 Editorial Hotea. Considerable prominence has been given of late to alarmist articles in the columns of the Sydney press. It is difficult to attribute theBe outbreaks to anything else than a scarcity of matters on which to comment, or else to a desire to further some ulterior object. > Some persons think that the colonies might be more readily " hustled" into Federation if they could be induced to believe that there was danger of ^var. Other's imagine that it would be a good thing if military expenditure were increased. The arguments of alarmists of this type can be readily understood, and easily estimated at their true value. As a matter of fact there is always clanger of war. The British Govern ment probably has a score of matters outstanding with Foreign Powers, any one of which might become a "casus belli," if one were needed. This being so, the colonies ought always to be in a condition to make adequate prepa...

The Land Board. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

The Land Board. The local Land Board has just con cluded a lengthy sitting here. The principal business was the considera tion of applications for homestead selections on the Grmningbland and Goobang holdings. These lands were made available for selection on the 16th December last, just about two months ago, when there was a great rush for the blocks, the number of applicants b ing over 100. At the present hearing 20 applications repre senting 19,600a, were confirmed. One application was postponed, one dis allowed as the Board was not satisfied with the bona fides of the applicant, and two were disallowed in favor of prior applications. The lands included in these homestead applications all contained improvements, more or less, which t the Board held to be the property of the Crown. These im provements which consisted of ring barking, fencing and tanks were ap praised at a total sum of £§52, ranging -from £116 17s 6d to as low as £1 10s on the selection blocks.

Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

TBy " Noogooiia.,"! The mining industry, which has played bo prominent a part in the progress and prosperity of this dis trict ill the past, is now on the bed rock of lethargy. 1 cannot help thinking that for this lamentable State of affairs a great bulk of the blame liea on our own shoulders. In any mining centre stability mu9t to a large extent rest with the amount of intelligent prospecting work carried on, and if those who get hold of the rich " chutes" of go-d so characteris tic of our reefs, fail or neglect to push o . exploratory work the result is ob vious. Had many of our mines in their halcyon days, of from 4i to lOoz crua' mgs, only received back a reason able p )rtion of their easily won profits for development, what a different posi tion they would be in to-day. Those that undoubtedly should have had their own well equipped up-to-date plant and machinery are either under suspension or working so spasmodi cally and slovenly as to make the niOBt enthusiastic shareholders ...

WHAT ARE THEY FOii ? BILIOUSNESS & CONSTIPATION, ETC. WHAT DO THEY COST ? WHY. ONLY PER BOX. A CURE FOR 9id A modern scieuce of medicine to concentration. Bile Beans for Biliousness contain in a condensed form ingredients that will prove a genuine specific for all digestive troubles. The bile is one of the most important factors in the process of digestion, and defective bile secretion causes a number of very serious ailments, such as coustipation, piles, diarrhoea, liver troubles, indiges tion, headache, etc. A healthy liver secretes sufficient bile, but when the liver's action becomes impared distress ing symptoms immediately follow. These distressing-symptoms Bile Beans cure, not by relieving the effect, but by getting to the fountaiahead—the liver. Bile Beans are made at Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A., and have been used throughout the country for years by the best physicians. A trial means a friend for us.

THE LABOUR PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

(to THE EDITOR <f WESTERN CHAMPION,") Sir,—That the tendency of the time9 is in favour of the amelioration of the conditions of labor is an indisputable fact. The efforts, therefore, of Labor to benefit its own condition are certain to meet with ;very general sympathy. At the same time it cannot be con* tended that they are always well directed. Sometimes indeed, they seem directly calculated to put back the hands of the clock of progress, and to undo the good work that has been done, rather than to further it in any sense. The recent meeting of 4the Political Labor League at Newcastle affords ample food for reiiections of this kiud. Speaking as it does in the name of " Labor" it might be supposed to voice the p.entimeints of a great majority of the population of the colony, for the population mainly consists of those who work in some way for their living. Instead of this, however, some of the views expressed by the league are those of a small and impracticable minority, ...
