Editorial Notes. RAILWAY MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 17 October 1902

Editorial Notes. RAILWAY MATTERS. During their recent visit to Peak Hill, several of the Works Committee expressed surprise that the residents had not advo cated the extension of a branch line from Earromine.to this cen tre, exclusive of Parkes. No secret is made of the fact, that the Commissioners look with disfavor upon the construction of a national crossline, -which would open up facilities for the carrying of trade to the Southern Capital, and for this reason, ap parently, the authorities, if not actually hostile, are at all events not greatly prepossessed with the route from. Parkes to JSTar romine, which would' mean a link to the national line. A fairly plain hint was thrown out that if the people were to agi tate unitedly, for thc.Narro mine-Peak Hill route, a large measure of support ?would be accorded to the movement, and that there would be every- pos sibility of success almost immed iately . It would be hard, how ever, for the llailway League to avail themselves of this ...

Mr.-Qaden will have to write his sig nature a thousand times before the papers can bo-deepntclied to the stock owners.

Andrew Lang, on Gambling. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 24 October 1902

Andrew Lang, on Gambling. Tho extreme prevalence of that sordid folly proves two things : Firstly the poor very naturally desire to eBoape from -strikes, labor, and weariness into a paradise of hope. Gambling offers them 'The key of the happy Golden Land,' and sends thfcigloam of romance flittering before them — the rainbow with the buried treasure ' at its feet. nitely more excuse than the rich. The habit is morally and financially ruin ous. But if the world is to be cured of betting it will not be by the moBt powerful tracts, Sermons, or Moral Novels appealing to' the sentiments. People can only be mended by reason when instructed that the odds against success worth winning are mathemati cally incalculable. This plain fact will convince the reasonable, but unluckily, the reasonable are a very small min ority and perhaps are convinced already. The opium eaters know the end of opium eating, and the sporting foot man, if ho reflects, knows the end of backing horses, but the magical g...
