Better drop it, girl ; it won't do you any good in the eyes of sensible people.' - Thank you,' was her demure reply, her lips dimpling at the corners in a way to shock the sensitivo Mr. Suther land. v Glancing from her to the still out lines of the noble figure on the couch, he remarked, with an air of mild re proof: ' I do not understand you, Miss Page.

BifiitriOt B^li^gfe ^ WILGAyALB. Wilga Vale is an. exceedingly fertile holding, situated 12 miles westerly of Peak BjIL It embraces some 5,320 acres of conditionally purchased and conditionally leased lands, which are admirably adapted to both prstoral and agricultural pursuits. The land is timbered, with pine, . box, ' myall and oak, and is divided into ?% paddocks, watered by. 9 tanks. The whole of. the area is exceptionally well improved. There are in all, 800 acres cleared for the ploughj'off which was taken l&st year, the substantial return of between 5 and. 6 bags to the acre. Fortunately .. however, the owner, Mr. T.

YEOVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 28 November 1902

YEOVAL. (From our own Correspondent.) I am glad to say Yeoval ha3 not fared so badly as Peak Hill in the late cyclones, as our township now stands as of old, with the exception of a few verandahs being devoid of their coverings. ' Almost all signs of grass and crops have disappeared from view with tho heat and winds we have been experi encing these last few weeks. The thermometer has already reached 104 deg. in the 6hade, which does not look well for this time of the year, considering it is early summer yet. In the way of amusement, cricket seems to be the only recreation that holds out these hard times. Our 'cricketers played ? two consecutive matches last week. Firstly Yeoval against Bournewood, and lastly the local team against Cuninock, with the result fcf a loss oh both occasions; but considering they hai e on every other occasion this, season been victorious, it is not altogether Unsatisfactory. On Saturday a return match is arranged with Bournewood. . , Some of our farmers ih...

Editorial Notes. REMISSION OF RENTS ON CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 28 November 1902

Editorial Notes. REMISSION OF BENTS ON CROWN LANBfS. The announcament, that in the House, Mr. Crick, Minister for Lands, favored the introduction of legislation, em powering him, at his own discretion, to either remit or postpone payment of the whole of the rents due in drought strieken districts, will not, we feel sure, be favorably received by the people interested — to wit the farming com munity, Mr. Crick's administration of his Department in the past, hns called forth the severest censure from many. He, in the opinion of a great number of-iaridholders is possessed of by far too much power already, and for the Government to vest in him additional responsibility . in . the above matter ?would not only bo indiscreet^ but we fool sure, detrimental to the 'best in terests of the .Farmers and Graziers.

The Drought-Stricken Areas. REMISSION OF BENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 28 November 1902

The Drought-Stricken Areas. REMISSION. OF RENTS. In the. Legislative Assembly on Fri day, Mr. Crick, in reply to Mr. Briner, said that where reliable information, was available, fines and interest were not imposed by the Lands Department upon settlers in the drought-stricken diKfrifits -who wera unable to par their rent. While he will not give his officers instructions to discontinue inflicting such penalties, ho would act upon the recommendation of the mem ber for the district. Ho would con sider the question of introducing legis lation to empower him to remit or postpone payment of tho whole of the rents due in. the. drought-stricken dis tricts during the drought period. The now Land Bill would provide for increasing the areas for future settle ment, so as to prevent over-Stocking.

BENEFITS OF PROTECTION. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 28 November 1902

BENEFITS OF PEGTECTION. /To (hi- Editor Peak mil Express.) Sir,— It is related that, in reply to a Parliamentary Committee, the head of the Internal Navigation Office admitted that he could not exactly define the use of it ; but he was satisfied, never theless, that it was a verv imuortant department. That exactly illustrates the position of your correspondent 'Protectionist.' Ho don't believe that Protection benefits 'The settlers of Kadiua and adjoining districts,' yet he gives the doctrine ? of trade restric tion- his support. History clearlv proves that 'Protection' does not benefit the manufacturers; for it was these who demanded the repeal of the duties in the mother oouiitry, aud their repeal was immediately followed by an immense increase in production, which is in perfect harmony, with the theory of tho freetraders. Your cor respondent refers to those in the oppo site fiscal camp to himself as ' God fearing.' Precisely! Every movement for the uplifting of humanity has been ...

Clufren| iSoncierns. I em 'credibly, informed, and my authority is indisputable, that ignor ance of matters relating to the Com--; mon reigned euprenie among the Trustees whenihe alleged tefcpafisof sheep was brought up lor discussion on Wednesday last. Tbis is not as it ought to be, for if a body of men take upon themselves a responsibility they should certainly make themselves con versant with 'the laws governing same, and' so obviate the inevitable censure which is bound tobejjassed upon them, by tho public? I happened to meet one pf the Trustees, on. his way to - the meeting, and I should judge by his appearance that he had ' A gun in Ids hand and fire in his eye.' But as the good Book says ' Without wisdom all is vanity.' ?; * * . ' # . ?

(To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) oir, — Hurrah ! Here we are again. How are you getting on— they are doing badly in Sydney — and now I find you are worse off here. On read ing your paper published yesterday, I see you have a fresh contributor, one 6ft. 2in. in his socks. If I knew the color of the socks I, might find out more of his character.'. What, does he 'mean by riving ^a^ftetemont of his stature? Does he wa?it to fight ? I can clo a little in that way, but as my height is only 5ft. lOin. in my boots I think I had better leave him alone. So he intends to leave Peak Hill and not pay his rates, but that other peo ple will have to pay them' Well Sir, on enquiry I find that the Municipal law is so arranged that if a man rents a house and there should be three years rates owing, he becomes respon sible. Well! Well! If that is the case it is an unjustifiable wrong. .moreover, on looking into matters, I also find that a person can be -a Mayor without paying his rates. Is that true ...
