I have made representation to the Minister to bring the proposed Line of railway from Narromiue via Peak Hill to Parkes, before the Cabinet at an early date.

Editorial Notes. THE PEAK HILL WATER SCHEME. The communication from the Department of Public Works, informing the local Council, that for the present, no money is available with which to carry on the work of constructing the various weirs infheBogan, will, no doubt, be received with gen eral disappointment. Ab it af fects the one near the Ten-mile Creek, is our more immediate concern. The scheme appeared such an economical, and at the same time, one calculated to be stow all the benefits which water conservation must necessarily impart, that we fondly hoped the work would be put in hand al most immediately. Had it been carried out in accordance with tbp. suffffestion of thp. InsDector. ? f-^fU ? — — ? j_- ? j Mr. Woods, it is only reasonable to suppose that ere long we should have had the much sought after, and long dhferred Peak Hill water scheme consummated.

(by ou» inosm.) *' A case which has engaged comidenM* public attention in the neighbourhood of Fyrmont was investigated by our repre tentative, whom we recently despatched fat that purpobc. On calling at No. 22 Mill* ?treet the scribe was informed by Mrs. Maria Stephens that she was the lady who had created so much discnBsion about an illness, and that if he would step inside he should receive a true version from beginning to end. ' To Btart with,' said Mrs. Stephens, ' I must tell you that I had nerer known what a day's Bickness was until I was attaoked with dyspepsia some time ago. I coma from a very healthy stock, but the best ol us must expect to suffer at some period of our lives. My complaint came on me quit* unawares.

In Memoriam Service. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 24 October 1902
In Memoriam Service Special Divine Service, to the me- mory of the late, Mrs. Beasley was held in the local Wesleyan Church on Sunday evening last. The sacred edifice was thronged to its utmost limit by an interested congregation, &nbsp; who joined enthusiastically in the solemn proceedings. The Church had been tastefully draped by Mrs. Hew- itt and Miss. Ritchie, and the folds of black cloth hanging from the pulpit harmonised to a great extent with the mournful feelings of the many wor- shippers. Mr. Yabsley, from Kadina kindly officiated at the organ, and the choir, under the able conductorship of Mr. Hewitt rendered special appropri- ate Hymns throughout. The Rev. B. Lane, from Parkes was the preacher. He took for his text the 166 Psalm, 15 verse, Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his Saints. He said that his object in holding an In Memoriam Service at this centre had been on. account of the many friends of the late Mrs. Beasley who, on account of the dist...

THE MUNICIPALITIES BILL. (To the Editor Peak Eill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 31 October 1902
. THE MUNICIPALITIES BILL. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) Sir, — I trust that you will allow me epace to refer to the most important feature in the Municipalities Bill now before Parliament. In that Bill an alternative method for raising rates is proposed. The present policy is to levy upon nine teiiths of the fair average rental value ?of land and improvements, or upon 5 percent, of the capital value of unim proved land. This' way .of raising revenue means, that owners of fully -improved lands pay the highest rates, , vrliile those .who1 have partly im proved, or idle lands, p.ay the lowest. In other words, good healthy houses are rated heavily, and insanitary hovels lightly. Tho most enterprising people in Peak Hill are taxed the most, wlule the owners of idle land who benefit by -the expenditure of public money and every increase in population, do not give a fair return tothe public, for tho advantages which tliey receive. Here is an example to show the exact operation of the...

' BENEFITS OF PROTECTION. ? v (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.; Sir, — Mr. Growlmret seems to think that 2ilr. Fletcher can get .along with out my help ; but, as he iakes up tlio cudgels for Mr. Stewart, he evidently thinks that the hitter cannot get along without his help. Well, perhaps he is right in each instance. 'Protection- ist ' is iiery enough, but I admit such a degre6?of opacity as to be quite un able to see the point of his letter. My mind is ever open to leam how to benefit the country at large, and I. shall be glad, of tho assistance of your very eble correspondents to clear up my difficulties vrith regard to Protection to the settlers of these parts. It soems to me that, in seasons when good crops prevail throughout the Commonwealth, ?wheat and wool sell atfreetrade prices ; that is the price these fetch in the principal markets of the world, less the expense of transporting them thither. If this be not the case, will our friends kindly show where I am in error ? In b...
