Editorial Notes. TYPHOID. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 16 January 1903

Editorial Notes. TYPHOID. The dreaded disease of Typhoid has manifested its ilf tojan alarming extent in Dubbo, Parkes, Molohg.&c, and it consequently devolves upon the resi dents of this centre to use every endea vour to minimise the i charicB of an out break here. All premises, and the out-houses to same should be kept scrupulously clean, and in a thorough ly sanitary condition. The awful effects of an epedemic of Typhoid can bo readily imagined, and it is there fore unnecessary for us to dwell upon the havoc an A discomfiture which would follow in tho tread of such an unwelcome, visit. 'Prevention is better than cure,' and now that our town is free from the- terrible scouge, lot us, if at all possiblo, keep it such. Once the disease gained a footing, it is diffi cult to foresee, in consideration of the absence of a water supply, and also of what we may call a proper sanitary system, where the end would be. Cer tainly, in the past, Peak Hill has been most fortunate, as for...

Fifielci (FaOM OtJEQft'N CoRRESlmDEVT.) There is nothing startling to report in the ' way. of mining. Everything is dull, although there has been some startling letters, andr.wb'es. coming from Peak Hill.arid.McPhail to people here with reference Hto n rush. The only.-, w.ork being . -ione is tit Platina. and there is. nothing there at present to induce auy person to C3nie here* Most* of the miners' there arc making a good living,' but I: do not think that the best claim, is pay ing '.£2 10s Od per week. 1' will however, go more fully into Ihe field . in a future issue.

Current concerns. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 16 January 1903

^f :^rrjK0^ojtGerjD®; m ? The appointment of Mr. Jacob Mat thews, Mayor of Peak Hill, *6 the position of ' Overseer, in . connection with the Mingelo Tank, at 12b per day, will hardly be received with general satisfaction. The object of die Government, in carrying out these various works was to provide relief to' distressed families, and not to enrich the coffers of any particular member of the community. No doubt, in Mr. Matthews, tho Government have a man of big practical experience, and one who will see that the work is carried out in a thorough' manner. Still as the work was intended to provide em ployment for the needy, it was indis creet, I think, to say the least of it, for our^chiof townsman — the Mayor of the Borough, to accept tho position. # . # * It is gratifying to see that strong measures are being adopted to stamp out the hideous practice of &o many of our young men (or would-be men) of the use of obscene language _in tho streets.

OLD AGE PENSIONERS AND THEIR OEITI08. (To the Eiitor ftak KM Ejcpresn.J Sir,— In all fairness your correspon dent should have'signed his immo, but no doubt the extreme heat caused him to seek tho shelter of a now deplume. With redard to the liberal measures of New Zealand and Victoria, the latter Stato has equalised matters by reduc iug the allowance from 10s to' 7s. A similar reduction is -looming ahead in our State, and a Jarge 'percentage oi convictions against pensioners for drunkenness would probably hasten the evil day. I acknowledge that with regard to . the panulty for driukiug with a Pensioner j have erred in tak ing an extremist's view of the case. Your correspondent's idea as to uni forms is splendid, and a solution to the gricvaupe. . There is no degrada tion in wearing one.

Departure. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 16 January 1903

Departure. - . It will come as a -great shock to many, to learn that Mr. H. J.-Fleteher, of Benevento, who has. been bo promi nently identified with the local Farm ers' and Settlers'. Association, and who at the present moment holds the Pre sidency of this body, leaves Sydney for New Zealand to-morrow, there to seek fortune afresh. Mr. Fletcher will, un doubtedly, be a serious loss to the dis trict, as since his advent to these parts he has accomplished much towards tho advancement of the residents', botK by his pen and his own personal efforts. Anything of interest, especially to the farming community, : received his 'ut most support. He is a man of power ful character, well read, ' and displays an earnestness of purpose in all mat ters caken up.
