The Old and the New. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 2 January 1914
The Old and the New. On Wednesday the old year ex pired and yesterday the new year — 1914 — was welcomed in in right royal fashion. The old year has been a prosperous one, and this in itself has given an encouraging aspect to th9 new year. The pros pects in tbe Cessnock district for the new year are exceptionally bright, and it will be surprising if 1914 will not turn out the most prosperous in the history of the town. The year opened with the coal trade at its best, and the only cloud in the in dustrial horizon — the afternoon shift question — has been blown away for for the time being. In coal business there is no questioning the fact that the year just closed was an excep tionally busy one, and the new year gives promises of being eauallv as busy, if not more bo. Tlie ' new collieries which are opening and de veloping will bring much new trade to our district and our population will extend in a surprising manner. The timber, wine, farming, and dairy farming industries have shown ...

A sensation 'was caused at the I OeBsnock Railway Station, on Thurs day night about 9 o'clock when ah engine while engaged in shunting raa into a Government carriage. It ap pears that a special train of ten ; ,- Government carriages had just ar rived, and the engine: was ..being shunted so as to attach' to the outgo t. ing end of the carriages. The train -« being of unusual length allowed the irons caiTiage co oe over one sec 01 points, and usually with lengthy trains the other setiB used. How ever, by some means or other the first Bet of points were used, and the engine coining down to couple with - the train crashed into the front car riage. Luckily the train was empty. It had conveyed a large number of * people to Cessnock, but. the time w-t*occupied in shunting had given them , time to leave the carnages. The carriage was lifted right on top X. oi the engine, and had it not been for 1*^' the platform would have toppled clean over. The ...

Are Racecource Times Reliable. ( . ? - - *- ? ' _ In a letter in i Monday* night's 'Maitland Mercury,' James Kingsley wants to know what all the' fuss is made overdue Victoria's run on the second day compared wjth the ..first day's running at Wallsend races. The writer states the time is the only* tiling 'the public are going on Rue Victoria was not on the job the first day. 'According ?. to the official hJ timekeeper the race the first day was I run in 2.9|, and'Rue Victoria was j one of the last to finish. On the -*, 1 second day when the gelding won, %Q the race was timed at 2.8. Kingsley | says lie timed the rayo himself at I 2.11, and lmB dopositedl&lOO which he offers to lay to'£35 4o feay the gelding cannot do the distance in 2.8 witii two stone less on his back. There's a lot in Kingsley's arguement. In the first day's race Cash more and Te Whare made the pace a cracker from the start and Rue Victoria did not seem to'be able to keep with Jiis ^ I field and then got b...
Fire at Cessnock. THREE SHOPS BURNED TO THE GROUND. CHRISTMAS MORNING INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 2 January 1914
Fire at Cessnock. THREE SHOPS BURNED TO THE GROUND, CHRISTMAS MORNING IN CIDENT. About 3 o'clock on Christmas morning, a block of three shops in Vincent street, Cessnock, almost. op- posite the intersection of Aberdare Road, were burned to the ground. The fire was first discovered by Mr. Katratas, who rented the corner shop as an oyster saloon and refreshment room. Mr. Katratas had closed late and driven a friend home, and on his return found his shop in flames. He at once gave the alarm, but on account of it being holiday time some time elapsed before there were many on the scene. The fire brigade bell clanged out its warning, and shortly afterwards the brigade arrived at the scene of the outbreak. By this time the fire had a good hold on the comer building, and the adjoining premises of Mr. Robertson's billiard room. The three shops were separated only by wooden partitions. The fire had quickly spread to the third shop, occupied by Mr. ? J. Hartley, tailor. At the rear of this sho...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 2 January 1914
ITEMS OF INTEREST. During the year there wore 56 prosecutions for breaches of the ord inances. £134/2/- was received for licenses under cattle, slaughtering, noxious trades, fish and butcher shop licenses. The prosecutions in connection with the sanitary service numbered 57. Nineteen vehicles were licensed, 12 drivers' licenses issued, also 23 butchers' shop licenses, 24 slaughter ing licenses, 1 cutting cart license, 46 noxious trade licenses. About 200 summonses were issued in connection with outstanding rates. With the increase in revenue the council must become in a better position to undertake the vast a mount of necessary work that re quires attention in the Shire. It is noticeable that the complaints and requests for work needed in various parts of the Shire have become less. When the revenue received by the council in the first year of its life is compared with the present year's revenue it will be readily seen that the council must be able to under take much more work now t...
