Alectown. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 11 March 1898

(from our own correspondent.1 On Saturday last, the cricket match, Alectown v. Billabong, took place on the former's ground, and resulted in a wm for the visitors on the first innings by 4 runs. A most enjoyable game it was too, la their first innings Alectowa batted one man short, leaving a vacant place for a player' who of course didn't put in an appearance. Many and varied are the excuses of the Alectowa men, but in my opinion they must attribute their defeat to practising on Sunday. Notwithstanding the nasty accident which Shields, the captain of the Hungers, met with coming across, he secured all but one wicket. Host Pepper provided a sumptuous lunch eon, and several ladies provided afternoon tea, which was the means of saving many iives„ Following are the detailed scores Alectown,—1st Innings.

Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 11 March 1898

[By " Noqgoqra."] Although Friday night's political meeting was well-attended the germ of indifference seemed to pervade the whole business. With aii election ap proaching rapidly one would naturally expect to find a considerable amount; of enthusiasm exhibited. But there j was a remarkable dearth of that com- I modity throughout. Even the speeches j made fell as flat as if they had been fired off at an audience of wax figures. For this state of affairs I am inclinedc to think the pro motors were them selves somewhat to blame. Ostensibly, the meeting was a Freetrade meeting— yet Freetrade never seemed to enter in to dalculations in connection with the ! Association's drafted programme. With the programme in question, it is true, no one could find fault. Buo it dealt too much with generalities, and not sufficiently with details. It is all very well to clamour for, say, a perfect land law, but what most people are directly interested in are the ways and means by which perfection may b...

SYDNEY, Thursday. Wheat is quoted at 3a 6d to 4s Id ; chickwheat at 2s Id to 3s 2d. The Convention has agreed to a provision in the Commonwealth Bill for the consecutive dissolution of both Chambers in the event of a deadlock. An attempt is being made to make the visit of the next Australian team to England a private venture. The Attorney General has given those interested in the atmospheric gas affair very little hope of any assistance from the Government; in bringing Lee and Elliott back, owing to the expense and difficulties sur rounding the case. Under any circumstances he would refuse to guarantee the payment of expenses. Ranjitainhji arrived in Sydney from Melbourne this morning to go under another operation in connection with a throat complaint. It is un likely he will play in the match against Victoria.

Mining Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 11 March 1898

Crushing operations are in full awing at the Bushman's. The manager has just returned from Sydney. The old battery is still engaged on the London Lead crushing. We hear that a party of local miners intend to proceed to the Meroo, Mudgee district, to work a show they have secured in that locality. At the Koh-i-nor battery, since our last, 12 loads were put through from the Koh-i-nor mine for a yield of about 9dwfc per too. 23 loads for T. Lee yielded comparatively nothing. j A trial crushing of five tons from j W. Frank's claim, about three miles from Condobolin, gave a return of 19dwts to the load. This was taken out of the shaft. Driving will at once be prosecuted along the reef. P. and E. Nash are now working a very promising reef at Broubalgne. The atone looks well and should yield satisfactory returns. We hear it is probable the Com pany will shortly relinquish their claim t0 the Currajong Consols. A. short while back some little excitement was caused by the an nouncement that p...
