Flour mill for Barraba?

Thursday 20 April 1893, The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser


A public meeting was held at the Mechanics Institute to consider the best ways and means to be adopted to secure the erection of a patent roller flour mill for Barraba. There was an unusually large attendance, owing to the fact that at the present there is no such mill in the district, although the town and its surroundings are depending to a great extent on its agricultural resources. A committee was formed to further the interests of the movement, and to bring about the successful issue of the matter in question. A vote of thanks to the chairman terminated one of the most successful public meetings ever held in this town.
