' It's ?. bad that ; better hang a man at once than punish him for life. There ought to be a prospect and an end to suficer-. ing ; then a man can look f orward to something, he.would have hope left. But never mind*that. I only speak of it because I believe it was the feeling of despair that tret led mo wrong, and drovo lao from bad to worse. Shortly after my landing I was as signed to a very good master. There were not many sottlera then, aud we did not know bo much of the country as we do now. As I was hardy in many things, and. ablo to earn'money, I soon got iny liberty on the old con dition ; that is, of paying so much a week to my master. That trick is not played now, but it was then, and by eorno of the big ones too. However, all I cared for was my liberty, and was glad enough to get that for seven eh...

CRITICISMS. SOME PRESS COMMENTS ON THE FIRST ISSUE OF THE EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 August 1902
.. CEITICISMS. - Sous Pbebs comments on the first ISSUE OF THE EXPRESS. ' The ' Peak Hill Express' is the name of the news paper published at Peak Hill by Mr- A. Miles. It is a new turnout altogether — a new plant, as well as a new proprietor1 — and. is miles ahead of anything yet printed at the Peak. The 'Express,' judging from the first issue*, should have a long run, the wheels being well greased with ' standing' and ' casual' adver tisements. Anyway, we wish our young brother well. — Molong Argus. We have received a copy of the first issue of the Peak Hill paper under its new name and management. Every thing connected with the old paper — 'The Commonweal' — has disappear ed, and the ' Express' takes its place, and tne change is vastly for the better. The new paper is printed with new tvne. is nicelv made ut- and contains a fair amount of reading, matter and ad vertisements. We wish the proprietor Mr. A. Miles, every success, and we feol sure that the paper's constituents will ap...
Detective Work in Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 August 1902
Detective Work in Africa. The Somalia, a people of Africa ' ? under lhvtisli domination, and living along- the coast near the bordors of AI)3'ssinia, are an inert and not very interesting race, but occasionally they wake 'up and exliibit a good deal of ingenuity and patience. The follow ing story from Herbert Vivian's Somali justice. - A certain Kussian complained, that - he had been robbed of £200, and inti mated that the money had disappeared .- vlion a British postman was passing. This- insinuation put the British con sul on his mettle, and ho 'applied to tho tribes to discover the culprit. Of course it was understood, that they should deal with the robber ac cording; to their own customs j for it is a point of pride with them -to detect and punish crime, but not to deliver a criminal over to a stranger's hand- Tho cliiefs took the matter up at once, and were not long in tracing tho crime to two discharged Somnh's. One had his share still upon him, and w( fl made to give it up at...

Editorial Notes. THE PROPRIETARY MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 August 1902
Editorial Notes. THE PROPRIETARY MINE. When one comes to consider all matters in connection with the above, he cannot fail but be astounded at the patience and forbearance displayed by the residents of Peak BUI and dis trict. Here we have a rich gold-bearing area, which needs but the expenditure of a little capital to make it probably, one of the the foremost mines of the State, retained by a company, who are from some cause, either unwilling or unable to work it in a manner which the property undoubtedly justifies. As be fore set forth in these columns, if the present holders are not in a position to comply with the regulations under which they acquired the land, why in the name of all that is fair should they noi be forced to relinquish it ? They have already refused, which to an outsider, was a mu nificent offer from the Myall's United G.M. Coy., who, possess ing as they do, the latest, upto date machinery, with a perma nent supply of water, should be far better able to do justic...
MR. BARTON'S REASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 August 1902
ME. BAETON'S REASSURANCE. The cable informs us this week that the Australian Premier has written to tho London Press asserting that the drought out here is but a trivial affair, and has been greatly magnified for political purposes. Or if he does not use those exact terms, the intent and meaning of the words he does make use of are to that effect The state ment, we are further informed, has ' reassured ' London. That is very nice indeed — for London, but for us ?who are amidst the horrors of the dryest season yet known to New South Wales; we whom the seven lean years are now devouring — for us the mes sage is a mockery. That message will not give back to the ruined settlers of the west their dead and dying herds ; it will not give those herds one drop of moisture or one feed of grass ; it will not give the dreary, dusty earth the faintest shimmer of the soothing green. A '? reassurance ' of that kind to us seems almost as though it should be spelt without its primal syllable and the...
