POLITICAL RENEGADES. (TO THE EDITOR "WESTERN CHAMPION.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 March 1898
THE EDITOR " WESTERN CHAMPION. Sir,—I can respect a man who, after being convinced of the error of his ways, changes his opinions and is prepared to show why he was so iu fiuenced, bat I can't stand at any price the man—and we have a lot of them in Parkes—who doesn't know his mind one moment from the next. We bave men here now who a year or so back were amongBt the most foremost in denouncing Protection, and now they will coolly tell you that the land tax has changed them and they are ^Protectionists. Well the Protectionists are welcome to them. They haven't enough sand in their compositions to coat an ordinary sheet of sand paper. " Land tax changed them." Ye gods, ifc would be in teresting to know how much they pay or how much land they really own-—not Bank-owned. Will these gentlemen, if they pay a tax, com pare the amount with what they would have to pay extra if the duties had not been removed. And -then let's hear from them. Surely they don't think the State is goinp: to be ca...

THE COMING ELECTION. (TO THE EDITOR "WESTERN CHAMPION.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 March 1898
j THE eOMBBEOlBOia (to THE EDITOR " WESTERN CHAMPION.") Sir,—As the general election ap proaches local interest is daily increas ing. Several candidates are already buckling on their armour, and are grinding their political tomahawks for the coming fray. Two or three have, I believe, spoken on the situation. But at present the fight seems to be be tween two particular candidates— Mr. Reymond for the Protectionists, and Mr. Gardiner for the Free Traders. There are three Parties inp Parliament and the followers of the Labor Party in the Ash'ournham electorate, of which I believe there are a good many in the Parkes district, may well ask " Where do we come in ?" Personally I see very little difference in the policies, as they affect the workers, of Mr. Gar diner and Mr. Reymond, except one supports a fairly democratic Gov ernment while the other would sup port a monoplistic one. There are reforms to be gained, and I say to the workers of Ashburnham that hurrahing and voting for men who...

Responding to the toast of his health, at the conclusion of the test match, Stoddart complained bitterly of the insulting conduct of a section of the spectators during the English men's tour, and the comments of a portion of the press. Aurucn has been scratched for all engagements at the V.B.C. meeting, having gone wrong. The body of Mrs. Glover, who murdered her six children near Hobart, was found in the river. The dead bodies'of all the children were found with their throats cut. There ia no news of the overdue French mail steamer Fiado, and the worst fears are entertained, A whole family at Oaulfield, Victoria, named Dobell, were poisoned through eating preserved beef. The victims are all out of danger but suffered severely. Rumours are rife of grave disaeneion in the Detective Department. A feeling of jealousy and antagonism is said to permeate all ranks, and a regular reign of discord prevails....

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) I Mr. G. Stanford's "thrasher" iB making a tour of this district and is doing good work. It has just put through Mr. Davey's Jot and the yield has been most satisfactory. One paddock of oats yielded as high as 13£ bags to the acre. The oats are of splendid quality. Matters in general are nearly as dull here as at Farkes, and that's saying something. There is to be a cricket match here on Saturday next between the Billybungers and our team. A most enjoyable game is anticipated. On Saturday afternoon last a match untried v single took place, which resulted in the old 'uns getting a great dressing, but they fancy their chance on Saturday week when the return is to be played. The local sweep, in connection with the Newmarket, resulted in Mr. J. Spplett drawing first prize, Mr. J. William second, and Mr. " S^ndy" ! Alexander third. | Mr. J.
