THE RECENT BYE-ELECTION. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 December 1902

THE KECENT BYE-ELECTION. f To the Editor -Peat Hill Express.') Sir,— Kindly allow me a little space in your paper, to make a few remarks npoh the recent election. Upon per using the speeches of the candidates and theis supporters, I noticed that all made the Freiman Case the chief topic of: tho issue; In my. mind, I don't think' so, and as Mr. Tiaw himself said, you must have some loop-hole to work upon. Inthis/he voted -for -a mea sure in which, he himself -disapproved of and to which 'his constituents were totally against. But owing to his pledge with his party he had to abide by the majority. However, seeing his mistake, he placed himself before his constituents to allow them to judge whether he was right, and in .face of the labor Party's Selected Candidate, he was returned by a overwhelming majority. This plainly shows us that Bahnain South approved of his action in resigning' *from the Labour Party. A representative is ' elected by a con stituency, and is expected to use his p...

RAILWAY MATTERS. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 December 1902

RAILWAY MATTERS. (To the Editor Peak JItll Express. J Sir,-*-Thanking you for past favors by inserting my previous letters, I again ask you to insert tho following in reply to Dr. Boss. In discussing the question, — Railway construction, 'Pfiak Hill-Moloner. Peak Hill-Narrc mine, I have, as far as possible, kept from personalities, and have- not re ferred to any man, but in a justifiable and allowable manner. In no case, have I imputed sinister or improper motives.: I have clearly shown that some of the public men of Peak Hill and district, have displayed a want of consistency in connection with railway matters, -by going for so many different routes, and instead of.nearing the ac complishment of railway communica tion, have deferred it indefinitely,' and that their action in ' connection with the invitation of the Minister for Works toPeakHill was a slight to our own Member and the electors- of Condobo lin, and contrary to all rule.

THE PASSING OF THE GOLD DIGGER AND OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES MOSTLY RETROSPECTIVE, (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 December 1902

THE PASSING OF THE GOLD DIGGER AND OTHER CIECUM 13TANCES MOSTLY EETEO SPtfCTIYE, l To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) ' Sir, — Even r.i this distance of time, one cannot fail to be struck with the spirit of natural justice and equity, embodied in the gold field regulations tliat' were in vogue from the early fifties to the eighties, foamed, I believe on the code of California, in its early'. digc'.'ig days. The -clearness, itie conciseness, and the simplicity of their wording so that.; they.TCOuld;be under stood by the meanest v capacity, -has seldom been equalled, and certainly never. surpassed. Old diggers, even now, get enthusiastic when talking of these old times and their jnst methods. The indispensabJ': condition of holding a claim was effective working or for feiture (to any one that wanted a show) by a simple and quick process. Com pare these regulations with the ones we live under now, which are framed in the interests of the ischemers, not the workers. The man who succeeds ...

(To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 19 December 1902

(To the Editor Peak Rill Express.) Sir, — ORe .your correspondent's ra* marks concerning Pensioner Morrison.. The punishment appears excessive for a first proved offence, but the police have been very lenient in not bringing T-im hofnra -tfio noitrt fihrlinr. ? It is well known that Morrison transgressed )n several occasions, and his caBe and that of another pensioner had become aotorious. Probably the other party irill profit by Morrison's experience. Unfortunately those supplying liquor to drunken men escape punishment. In most country towns all Old Age Pensioners are known -to business people, and the sale of liquor to pen sioners should be restricted. There are others to whom the law could well be applied, Jihose of the Oetupm kind who follow up and induce thp old men to drink for the sake of obtaining cheap drinks from them. Any person caught drinking at the pensioner's expense should be liable to prosecution. Pen sioners thoroughly understand the conditions under which pension...

Current Concerns. The waysandwhimsoitiie ' Foorce,' as ' Shylock ' calls thjni, are coming in for a good deal ,«f ,. criticism all round. Evereince that' alleged mem orable manifesto issued, by our recent arrival, things have only just been middling. Residents appear hardly satisfied that the Department should have seen fit to anchor the -trio who daily favor us with their presence, in this sedate little town, of ours known as Peak Hill. Before' their arrival we could boast — or thought we could, of being a most law-abiding crowd — but now the scenes have changed. * # . * Anyhow it would be just as well, and quite as agreeable, if the 'Foorce' in question would - pnpdly remember their position, and be 'fully cognisant of the fact, that they, are hero to main tain order, and. not in any way to aggravatethepppulijce.

The Chemist & Druggist, Mr, C. F.

His establish ment is muUam in pmxo, comparing favorably with many city and suburban .erections, designed and fitted up by the w^ll-known local architect and contractor, Mr, Lockington.

COST OF WHEAT GROWING. (To the Editor Peak HtU Express.) Sir, — The Farmers and Settlers, at their next meeting, purpose agreeing upon a standard as to what is the total cost per acre of putting in and taking off a crop of wheat. This cost is im portant, because upon it the Land Board base their valuations. What ever value is proved to be the result of wheat-farmers' expenditure of toil and money are earnings rrom improvement value : and the balance, if any, repre sents some advantage in the land and is due hind payment. It is highly necessary that every item of cost should be shown, because land appraisement, will l-e bo much the less. The charges for bare land must be excluded, be cause it ib the right value of ' Land ' ? we are driving at. There are only two other elements necessary for wheat growing:— labour and capital,' ' ' Capi tal ' means the whole plant. Money spent in clearing, cost of fallowing ground, fences, plough, 'machinery, waggon, harness, horses and netting. Short...
