BATHURST SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 1 April 1898

The Bathurst Show oi' 1S98, held on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday laat, was an immense success. The gate takings totalled ,€900, as agaiust <£895 iast year. In the blood horse section there were some very fine animals, but, with the exception of blood mares, the eiitries were not as numerous as they should be in a district like Bathurst, The only feature in the cattle sections calling for remark was the poor representa tion, so far as numbers were con cerned, of Durham, Hereford and Devon stock; but compensation was found in the large display of dairy breeds, both Ayrshire, Alderney aad miscellaneous breeds being better represented than in previous years. Undoubtedly the moat distinctive feature of the show was the sheep section, which held some of the beat animals that ever came under the eyes of the jud^s. The special prizes offered by ' the Government for the beat combined exhibit of horses, dairy cattle, pigs farm produce, dairy produce and machinery called...

Ilium bury Notes. Our Bumbury correspondent writes : Our almost defunct Progress Commit tee has once more aroused from its slumber and none too soon, for there are several matters here which need attention. Prominent amongst them is the road known as the Dungeon hill. The state of the same beggars descrip tion. Only those who are unfortunate enough to. have to use it have any idea of its condition. There being a deal of traffic over this hill, it is surely worthy of attention by those in charge. I believe our Progress Committee ie about to bring the matter uuder the notice of our Member.—I hear the residents here are about to have a Justice; of the Peace appointed. The same is badly needed.

THE AND PAHKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 1898. The course of events in connection with the struggle of the European Powers for influence and ascendancy in China does nob raise our estimation of the ethios of trade. Russia, Ger many, anst apparently France have set themselvps to carve out of the effete and almost powerless Eastern nation such portions of its territory aa j they have set their hearts upon. Nominally this territory is to be leased atfd Chins is to retain the fiction of | sovereignty. But it w.ill be only a fiction. The territory was taken bv force in the first instance, and it is now held by force. It is as though a settler should annex a few of his neighbour's horses, and should say : " I am going to stick to these, mate, and work them as £ think St. But you can still call them yours!" # ss ■ ss On a small scale this would be plain and simple stealing and would land its perpetrator in gaol.
