School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 September 1902
School of Arts. On Monday evening tho formal re opening of the School of Arts, took plate at the now premises, next the . Commercial Hotel, Caswell Street. The room is undoubtedly a great im provement on the old one, and pos sesses an air of comfort which should induce many of our townspcojJe to -?agerly avail themselves of tho splen did opportunity now afforded of scan ning tho. various daily and weekly papers, together'with u goodly assort ment of the different magazines. ?Games are also provided for its patrons, and we understand that a I'ing-Pong table is shortly to be in stalled. The use of the present room ja given xruu of cuuig«, uy jili. jh-ui-t rell, which is undoubtedly a most generous act, and reflects the greatest ?credit on the public Bpirit displayed by him. Mr. Murrell has, on numberless occasions, shown the patriotism which be entertains for bis town and district, not by words, but in most instances, by a munificent gift of the wherewith al to keep things together.

LAND MONOPOLY & BENEFITS OF PROTECTION. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 September 1902
LAND MONOPOLY & BENEFITS .OF PEOTEOTION. , (To tht-EiUw Peak Hill Exprm.J , ? Sir, — Mr. Fletcher, in his lettera, makes out that Protection is the cause of tho Land Monopoly at Lithgow. I fail to see how it affects the question more than Freetrado would. If the erection of ironworks had been mooted whilst a Freetrade system was in vogue, no doubt tho land would have been secured by speculators in the same way as at present. Just as well say that- Freetrade was the causa of the whole of tho land on and around Peak Hill having been secured by speculating leaseholders in the early days. A Freetrade party waein po wer at that time. ?Yours etc., J. CAMPEY.
Current Jottings.. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 September 1902
Current Jottings.. (By Grasshopper.) Melbourne has been elected Federal Capital pro tern, and unless the People of New South Wales stand out for their rights, it seems in a fair way of being employed permanently in that capacity. The Age ha« plainly assor ted that it would be absolute madness to shift the Capital into -the wilds of New South Wales when it has such a beautiful city at its disposal, and con eiders it a great cueek on the part of New South Wales to ask for such a tiling. The Argus, too, although not quite 80 pointed, evidently intends to have a big fight to keep tho Capital in Victoria. When it is considered that the income of these papers would be affected to tho tune of about seven or eight thousand- a year for extra tele graphic messages, the position is easily understood. Further, the Victorian revenue is likely to sustain a serious blow by the cessation of duties on the extra bulk of champagne, and other liquids which are now imported (not for the use of the parso...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 September 1902
MINING. The Proprietary Mine is to start crushing. There is something like 1600 to 1700 tons of ore to be put through, 2-rincipally belonging to the Tributors. The CSmpany's tank has beaefltted but poorly by the recent rains. Arrangements have, however, been made whereby tho water from an adjoining tank has been acquired. The trial crushing of Messrs. Wooden and Matson, from the New Year's Gift, near Mingelo, resulted in 14ozs being secured from 24 tons, The ore was taken to Tomingley, and put through Messrs Crowhurst and Sons Battery. Messrs Matson and Wooden are energetically working the mine, and we understand the stone is opening up splendidly.

McPhail Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 September 1902
McPhail Concert. The evidence of ? the insufficient police protection provided by the De partment, at McPhail, was again demonstrated during the continuance of an entertainment, in aid of thev Church of England Building Fund, held on Wednesday evening last Bight through the performance, stones were thrown on the roof of the Hall, wiuie a numoer ox young men at me rear, kept up such a continual distur bance that at times it was almost impossible to proceed -with the pro gramme. Not alone in the Hall was the disturbance confined, but on leav ing, many of the performers *were subjected to hooting . and uncompli mentary remarks. The farce set down on the programme had to be ommitted. Some idea may be gauged of the feelings of tho audience, when our popular comic 'Lich' was unnble to raise a clap. The concert opened with a duet by the Misses. Hands, which was- well received, then a comic song by Mr. Seymour, encored, after which a song by Miss. M. Matthews, encored. Mr. Haynes followed w...

(To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 26 September 1902
(To the Editor Peal ITill Express.) Sir, — I think that the report in your last issue of the McPhail Coccirt has somewhat exaggerated the caee, One would think by reading it 'that the MoPhailites are a set of 6avages, who would not listen .to a Melba. Ipthing is further from the truth. They are but a simple lot of toilers, possessing a grim senBe of humor, and a hearty dislike for singers who can not sing. As you admit, the visiting ladies were fairly well received, the innate chivalry of the McPhail boys will always guarantee them this, des pite their artistic defects. Yes sir, the little breeze at McPhail on last Wed nesday was not vice, but merely a manifestation of outraged artistic sensibilities, and the quickor it is generally known the better. Tours etc., 'NIMROD,' Tomingley.

(To the Editor Peak HtU Express.) Sir, — Tour report of the McPhail Concert was, in every respect, a fair one, at the same time I would like to point out what was,in my opinion, the reason such a reception was accorded the Peak Hill performers. In the first place their high-handod style was uot appreciated. 1 am uitormGd. on good authority that certain of the Peak Hillites were averse to taking an ac tive part in the concert should any of the local people be asked to contribute. Blood is thicker than water, end our young men were not slow in sliowing their disapproval of such sentiment. Before talking of Police protection, it would be well perhaps, if they -were first of all to look to their own town. I myself, ' hare been present at an en- , tortainment in l\ak Hill, wherejjhoot ing and stone -throwing were indulged in to a shameful extent. McPhail is not to be put down in any high handed manner, and the sooner those of Peak Hill who consider themselves as ranking among the feet or...
McPHAlL CONCERT. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 26 September 1902
McPHAIL CONCERT. (To the Editor Peak Hill Exprtu.J Sir,— Being a resident of McPhail, I must in duty bound, raise my voice on behalf of those who were present at the Concert on Wednesday night last. You, Mr. Editor, say it was the want of Police protection, and perhaps you may be right, but I certainly think that the performance given on Wednesdav nicht. onlv ntmttml irVint it received, and when in future Peak Hillites come out to MePhail, I sin cerilyhope, for their own sateB; axd f jr the sake of the town they represent, they will try and give an entertain ment worthy of the approval of the residents of McPhail (more especially when the entertainment is in aid of a Church), and not condescend to give us low comic eongs and questionable jokes: From first to last, the perfor mers seemed to be of the opinion that anything was %ood enough for the McPhailites, and even the Popular Comic 'Litch,' as you call him, was decidedly, stale, and his jokes were certainly bid and very, much hack...

MINING. NEW YEAR'S GIFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 26 September 1902
I * MINING. New Year's Gut. In our report of the returns of Mi^srs. Matson and Wooden's crash ing at Tomingley, the figures were roverlsed. They shauld have read 24 ,ozs. from .14 tons.
