Forbes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898

(from our own correspondent.) At the local Police Court on Saturday, Edward Stone was com mitted for trial on a charge of perjury. The case arooe out of evidence alleged to have been given at Oondobohn, in a case againat Rabinowitch, and again at Forbes in an affiliation suit. Several delinquents in school fees and attendance were fined in sums ranging from Is to 14a. The weather during the week has been very hot, not what was expected after the recent rains. Efforts are being made with a view of starting a Co operative Milling Company. It is in good hands, and if other ventures of a similar character are a critertion, there should not be very much difficulty iu getting the concern going,, A good deal of canvassing is being done in view of the coming election, A tennis club was formed at the Lachlan College on Friday last. Mrs. G. YV\ Ratten was elected president, and the fo'iowing pupils as office bearers : Treaserer, Miss E, Thomas ; secretary, Miss U, Davison, with Miles, Green, ...

Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The chief item of conversation in the city during the week has been fche disastrous result of the recent storm. Several vessels were destroyed and a. number of lives lost. In a few instances, also there were unusual coincidences m connection with the disaster. The daughter of one of the wrecked captains dreamed a dream wherein she saw her father's ship sink and him take to the water ; rao that, we are told, when he arrived home, a shipwrecked sailor, his family were iu no way surprised. This is no doubt a perfectly true story, it is also quite probable. Our friend in the play might have been quite correct when he said " There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of m thy philosophy," but still in this instance there is hardly room for any thing in the supernatural line. On the contrary it is very common place ; what rnore natural than that of a loying daughter, hearing of the storm and of certain wrecks on the coast, having a father on th...

A Condobolin Chip. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898

A Condobolin Chip. An advice from Condobolin reads : A large number of intending selectors, who favored this district on account of the richness and suitability of the soil for wheat-growing, have been disap pointed. They, hoped that when the construction of the railway from Parkes to Condobolin was approved by Parliament the Minister for Lands would have taken steps to have the lands suitable for settlement along the line and throughout the district sur veyed into blocks and thrown open to che public in anticipation of the line being finished. Such lands would have been eagerly competed for and settled on by a desirable class, which would have enhanced the prospect of the line becoming a paying one at an early date. 'The opportunity having been missed, however, desirable settlers are forced into other districts, where suitable lands may be available.

Good News. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898

Good News. We learn, on good authority, that the line to Oondobolin via Parkes has been classed as a main line. Hitherto M.olong was the recognised limit of main line rates. The line from Parkes to Forbes has been set down amongst tho branch lines. The faefc of main lines rates prevailing will mean a decided concession to residents of Parkes and Oondobolin, in the matter of freight charges.

That Petition. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 February 1898

That Petition. Subjoined is a copy of , the petition, drafted in accordance ■with, resolutions passed at Friday night's public meet ing in Parkes 1"To the Com missioners for Railways. Sirs,—The petition, of the undersigned ratepayers and residents of Parkes respectfully pray: That it is necessary, in the interests of and justice to Parkes and district that the train service from Oondobolin should have its head, quarters at Parkes, instead of being run to and from Forbes three times a week as at present proposed. That, such running to Forbes will entail, a very considerable weekly expense, which will have to be borne by the people of the colony without any com pensating benefit being derived from it. That such expense could be saved by a comparatively small expenditure in the erection of engine and cleaning sheds. That it is very probable that in the near future Parkes will be a very important railway centre when it will be absolutely necessary that engine sheds should be erected. Th...
