Interesting Land Case. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 January 1901
Interesting Land Case. A land case at Parkes on Tuesday excited considerable interest. A holder of a pastoral lease, under permit, im proved a portion of his holding, until 3000 acres had nearly £1400 worth of improvements upon it. He did not obtain an extension of his lease, as anticipated, but the land was made available for settlement lease, and, as such, he applied for it. Three other applicants stood upon their rights to participate in the ballot, but several withdrew. The pastoral lessee said he had lost £7000 on the block, and that the failure of his application would very largely increase his losses. The other applicants urged that it was not shown that the improvements had not been effected for the purpose of secur ing the land against the spirit of the Lands Act. The board unanimously decided that the lessee's application had priority over the three other ap plications. ?

The Municipal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 January 1901
The JHuuicipal Elections \Ve hail with delight the apparent renewal of interest in municipal matters as-indicated by the nomina tions for the vacancies shortly to occur, and we: sincerely hope that nothing may transpire to prevent any of the gentlemen nominated from goirtg to the poll. It has sometimes happened that two or three gentlemen who have special aptitude for that, kind of work get behind the door, and to suit their own ends, and to bring forward their favorite, so manipulate matters that their man gets a wafer over. That may be a good thing for the man himself, as it may he his only chance of securing a seat, but it is not' always best for the town. Of the men who have been nominated we need say but little, as we have no party axe to grind and no personal end to serve. Our wish is to see men elected who can and will give the necessary time to their duties, and who will quietly and thoroughly do their work considering at all times the interests o£ the rate payers. Mere talk...

Booiiual futon oiiB. ow cohrespondent.] As you have not heard from this lovely place for a long time, I just drop you a line to let you know we are all alive. We have had a few very trying days lately, but ' use is second nature ' and so when they pass we forgot. iSo far the summer has heeu exceptionally dry. The terrific heat of Saturday ended in a thunder storm on Sunday morning, when 46 points of rain fell. There is abundance of good grass in this district, in fact, given a good season and Booligal would take a lot to bent it in this respect. liabbits are again making their ap pearance, as several Utters have been seen along the river. Game is plenti ful and shooting parties have good sport. Our river is holding out well this year, as it is still running pretty strongly ; we have, in consequence, a good supply of water. The death of Her Majesty the Queen was received with considerable feelings of regret. Everyone felt as if a friend to the British in particular, and the world in ...
