LATEST TELEGRAMS. Sydney, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

LATEST TELEGRAMS. Sydney, Friday. It has transpired that Arthur Bin- stead, winchman on board the ill fated brig Minora, was not a member of the crew at the time the brig foundered, but had remained in Sydney, there by escaping from an untimely death. A Government steamer was out all night searching for the missing crew, but returned this morning without any success. The Norton and Lonsdale criminal libel cases were continued in the Ar- midale Court to-day. Mr. Norton ap piied for an order of attachment against the Attorney-General for contempt of court for writing a letter to Mr. Car- ruthers, which the latter read during his cross examination, in which Mr. Want said, " He could tell Norton he would find out something when he was doing two years imprisonment.   This, Norton contended, was an au- dacious, gross, and impudent contempt of court, and a most improper course for a Minister of the Crown to pur- sue, especially as Mr. Want was the Grand Jury at whose instance ...

'The Great Cricket Match. Brilliant Batting by the Australians. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

'The Great Cricket Match. Brilliant Batting by the Austra- lians. Fully 10,000 poople were present to witness the first day's play of the second test match on Saturday at Melbourne. The weather was fortu- nately in marked contrast, to that ex- perienced during the earlier part of the week. It was cool and refreshing, and alike agreeable to players and spectators. The Australians won the toss, and went to the wickets. Maclaren   captained the Englishmen and Trott the Australians. During the luncheon interval Ranjitsinhji went away into town to have an operation performed on his throat by Dr. Brady, who had gone over specially from Sydney, but the Indian Prince resumed play in the afternoon. M'Leod's innings was the feature of the day's play. He was at the wickets for four hours, and did not give a chance till Storer clean bowled him. The batting was of a very high order, and notwithstanding repeated changes in the bowling, the Australians were not disposed of till late o...

The half year shows a.total decrease of £201,327 as com- pared with the corresponding period of the previous year.

The only other decreases of any importance are : £11,128 in the land revenue, £728o in the land tax, £22,972 in the Customs, £6628 telegraph receipts. £6629 pilotage, harbor dues, etc. and   miscellaneous £5854- The principal increases are : Stamps, £32,245, pos- tage £7505, metropolitan water rates £5750, excise £5454, and telephone receipts The total revenue is £4,412,319, as compared with £4,613,   646, for the half year ended December 31,...

Articles sent by Post. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

Articles sent by Post. THE postal authorities point out that persons wishing to send packets con- taining articles having a saleable value, or any goods whatever, other than trade patterns or samples, per post, to the United Kingdom, should note that this can only be done by means of the par- cel post, or by paying letter rate of pos- tage. The pattern and sample post to the United Kingdom is restricted to bona fide trade patterns or samples of merchandise, and packets containing goods for sale, or in execution of an order, however small the quantity, or any articles from one private individual to another, which are not actually sam- ples or patterns, cannot be forwarded by this post. Numerous articles, in cluding a number of packets of wed- ding cake, are now lying at the General Post-office, which have been irregularly posted out of the proper course, and which cannot be returned to the send- ers because their names and addresses are not ascertainable. The only thing that the Post...

Bush Fires in Tasmania. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

Bush Fires in Tasmania. Details of the bush fires which be-   gan on Mount Wellington on Friday show that the devastation has been widespread. The flames, rushing down the valley towards the coast, swept miles of country, houses, orchards and fences all being destroyed and several lives being lost. The destruction of live stock, was heavy. The devastation on the Huon-road at Upper and Lower Longley, and at Sandfly is deplorable. Churches, post-offices, an hotel, farms, and dwellings have been reduced to ashes. About 20 houses have been destroyed, and the vegetation and tim- ber growth have been reduced to coal blackness. Mrs. Jones, wife of a groom living near the Longley Hotel, was burnt to death while rushing through the bush towards her home. Her boy also perished. Every soul in the local- ity would have perished had it not been for the shelter of a bridge at North-west Bay, where the people huddled to- gether, partly in the water and remained there for hours. On Sat...

The " Windsor" Xmas Number. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

The "Windsor" Xmas Number. The Windsor Magazine Xmas num- ber is indeed a marvellous shillings- worth, and should have an enormous sale. Messrs. Ward, Lock and Co., of London and Melbourne, have evid- ently determined that it shall beat all records. Conceive of it, if you can— nearly 100 pages of really first-class literature and illustrations, beautifully printed on fine-art paper, and this can be obtained for one shilling; or, in the most remote parts of New South Wales, posted and delivered at your own door, for twenty penny stamps. And now to examine. First, then, there is a long, complete separate novel by Grant Allen, a charming story of 180 pages, with eight beauty- ful illustrations, which is worth far more than the shilling. Then there is the Magazine itself, nearly 200 pages, full of splendid reading qnd beautiful pictures. There is the opening instal- ment of what bids fair to be a re- markable story, " Kronstadt," by Max Pemberton, with excellent illustrations by A. Fore...

Wreck Of The Minora. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

Wreck Of The Minora. The captain of the schooner Advance, which arrived at Newcastle on Monday morning from Sydney, reports picking up Captain Gallant, of the brig Minora off Cape Three Point, at 9 o'clock, on Sunday night. The ship-wrecked captain informed the master of the Advance that the Minora left Newcastle for Sydney at 5 o clock on Friday afternoon with a cargo of coal. A terrific gale was encoun- tered on Sunday, but the vessel wea- thered this. The heavy weather must no doubt have opened the vessel for she began to make water fast and found- ered at 10 o'clock on the same night. The captain and crew were left strugg- ling in the water, and it is not yet known whether any of the crew were saved. The captain and cook clung to a piece of wreckage, but the latter became so exhausted after being a few hours in the water that he lost his hold and sank. The captain, who clung to the piece of wood, informed the master of the Ad- vance that two steamers passed quite close to him in...

General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

General News. A conference of Premiers has been arranged to take place in Melbourne directly after the Federal sittings. The plague has reappeared in Bom- bay and the deaths in one week num- bered 1,100.     Two ladies in Madrid have fallen   out, and feeling that their differences can only be settled on the field of honour, have decided to fight a duel. Both ladies are busy taking fencing lessons. There is great activity in the naval dockyards at Hongkong. The movements of the British fleets are kept secret. J White, of Newcnstle-on-Tyne, won the Christmas Sculling Handicap on the Tyne, defeating James Wray, of New South Wales, who conceded him 17 seconds start in the semi final. George Towns, the Hunter River sculler, also competed in the event, but was defeated in an early heat. A British committee has been ap-   pointed to consider the question of the construction of a cable from Freeman- tie, W.A., to the Cape, via Diego, Garc...

Sensational Suicide. An Edinburgh Mastery. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

Sensational Suicide. An Edinburgh Mastery. A sensational suicide occurred on Tuesday, November 20th, in the Edin- burgh Police Buildings, a young lady, apparently of Swedish birth, blowing out her brains with a revolver. About three weeks previously she made her first appearance at the Criminal Investi- gation Department, and lodged a report to the effect that she had lost her purse and a sum of money amounting to something between £10 and £15. She thought it had dropped from her pocket.   She gave her name as Tereasa Ulfeld, and stated that she was residing in a temperance hotel in Leith-street. She had a lady-like appearance, and in the estimation of the police might have been a governess or lady's companion.   She was rather handsome, apparently no more than 25 years of age, and was dressed in a genteel costume. During   the interval after her first visit the police   gained no information as to the lost property, and on Tuesday...

Russia's Advance in Manchuria. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

Russia's Advance in Man churia. THE preliminary surveys for the two projected Russian railways through Manchuria have now been completed, and the details for the construction are being studied, When the Siberian railway was projected it was divided for construction purposes into three divis- ions of successive orders of " urgency." The last of the three was that from the trans-Baikal to Vladivostok. This division joined an affluent of the Amur, the Chilka River, at the trading station of Stretensk, followed the Chilka to its junction with the Amur, and thence followed down the Amur to the much larger station of Khabarovk, which is already connected with Vladivostok by a railroad in actual operation. The whole of this line was in Russian ter- ritory. The newly projected lines strike south shortly before reaching stretensk, and proceed direct to Vladivostok. One of these traverses both Mongolia and Manchuria, the other lies wholly in Manchuria, skirting the Mongolia boun- dary, but bo...

Romantic Elopement. The Young Lady and the Corpulent Curate. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

Romantic Elopement. The Young Lady and the Corpu- lent Curate. A great sensation has just been caused in and throughout the district of a small market town in Leicester- shire, England, by the elopement of a daughter of one of the oldest and most aristocratic families in the neighbour- hood and a clergyman of the Church of England The deeply romantic cir- cumstances of the case are increased by the fact that the young lady re- ferred to has long since attained an age when it might reasonably be sup- posed she would not so easily have been influenced in taking a course probably,, fatal to her personal happiness, and certain to cause the deepest anguish to her relatives. She is a young lady possessed of consider- able personal attractions, and was en- gaged to be married to a gentleman who, alike as to age, position, and at- tachment, was considered by her friends to be a most desirable husband. The engagement, which to all appear- ances was fully reciprocated by the lady, was about t...

A Wealthy Tramp. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

A Wealthy Tramp. CASES of wealthy tramps, who trudge through the country with deposit re- ceipts for large sums of money in their posession, have often been recorded     (says the Melbourne Argus), but there has rarely been such an instance as that reported by our Trentham correspond- dent, who writes: Last Friday Con- stable Lombard arrested a very notable character, one, Patrick Cotter, who is known in this and other districts as the wealthy swagman. During the day several persons saw him wandering near the town in air almost nude state, and he was locked up on a charge of indecent behaviour. At the lockup he was found to have upon him, secreted amongst a mass of rags, which he car- ries, deposit receipts representing £945, and £5 or £6 in cash. He was brought before Mr. Norton, J.P., at the Tren- tham.Court, when the charge was fully proved; and he was fined £5, with 12s 6d costs. The fine and costs were paid, apparently very much against his will, and h...

Nevertire To Warren Railway. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 5 January 1898

Nevertire To Warren Rail way. The Nevertire to Warren railway is now completed, and it is expected that it will be open for traffic to-day. The following is the official description of the line :—This railway branches off the Great Western Railway at the north end of the Nevertire station. The starting point is 341 miles 20 chains from Sydney, and it ends at 353 miles 53 chains at the township of Warren, which lies to the north-east of Nevertire. The length of the line is thus 12 miles 33 chains. The country passed through is level in character. The Beleringer Creek, where there are twenty 24ft. openings, and the Gunningbar Creek, where there are six 24 feet openings, are the principal waterways intersected ; but country generally is on exceptional occasions liable to floods, for which ample provision has been made. The line following for the main part the travelling stock route fron Nevertire towards Coonamble, and consequently very little alienated property is inter- ferered with....
