A McPhail Fire [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 7 January 1898

Mi nine: Matters. A fresh start was made at the Bush- man's on Monday.—The Birthday has a couple of hundred tons paddocked, waiting for rain to start crushing.— Mr. W. Matthews has gone to Goul- burn to inspect a boiler for the Phoenix.—Faull and party started with the shaft contract at the Koh-i nor mine on Monday.

A similar result was obtained from a small lot from the Currajong Consols,—A crushing from the Newhaven gave a return of about 4dwt to the ton.

The Early Closing Movement. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 7 January 1898

The Early Closing Movement. The chief topic of conversation in Parkes just now is the early closing movement. The employees seem at last to be fully alive to the exigencies of the occasion. A monster public   meeting is called for next Wednesday at 8 p.m. The Mayor will preside, and the leading speakers of the town, as well as some ladies, will deliver ad- dresses. We would ask the ladies to roll up to the meeting in large num- bers, and by their presence show their sympathy with a movement which has the good wishes of the right-thinking and progressive members of the com- munity. The principal object of the meeting will be to try and induce the storekeepers, who still keep their shops open after six o'clock, to close at that hour, and thereby give those employed by them an opportunity for mutual   recreation and improvement. We are   glad to see that Messrs Price and Palmer have decided to close their establishments at six, and trust that all ...

WYALONG. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 7 January 1898

WYALONG.   On Sunday, a man named Oliver Watts was found dead in the bush at Wyalong. It is supposed that he was thrown from his horse. The hot weather, and the fact that very little underground work has been done for some time, makes it advisable for miners to test the air in their workings before resuming opera- tions. In several claims the air is very foul, and some narrow escapes are reported. Ada Denton, a young girl of about 21 years of age, was charged at the Police Court with attempting to commit suicide by taking a quantity of a drug called the "Unknown Remedy." Accused pleaded guilty and was sentenced to seven days. Mr. Crosier, who for some months past has been filling the position of assistant at the West Wyalong Public School, has been appointed to take   charge of the school at Myalls, a mining township about 7 miles from Peak Hill. During his sojourn in Wyalong Mr. Crosier has made many friends, who, though sorry that he is going away, and ye...

Forbes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 7 January 1898

(From a correspondent.) The New Year, with its attendant heat and dust, was ushered in quietly enough, the evil effects of the drought being everywhere apparent. The river is very low, being almost a chain of waterholes. And if rain does not soon come it will very shortly vanish altogether. 'Tis said 'every man has his day,' and certainly the bike-men had their day out on Saturday last. During the morning a procession of cyclists, headed by the band, paraded the town, and about 12 o'clock a start was made for the Show Ground, where a capital programme was carried out without a hitch. The officials deserve great credit for the way the different events were carried out. Some good finishes were witnessed, especially the New Year's Day Handicap, P. Cor- bett winning a good race from the plucky Peak Hillite, Campbell. Ex- cepting in this race no other first prize went away from Forbes, the local lads Johnson, Ratten and Patton winning the other six. Sub- joined are detailed results of th...

That a heat wave seems to be rolling backwards and forwards over these western slopes.
