A TAMWORTH EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
A TAMWORTH EXPERIENCE. After referring to many defects in the Tamworth water supply, just be- &nbsp; ing made, an advice reads : — 'Leakages occurred on the pipe- &nbsp; line between Tamworth and Moor Greek last summer, and when the wa ter was 'most urgently needed the sup ply gave out', and ;for months no wa ter was flowing in the street mains. Now serious trouble is foared at the storage reservoir, particularly as a fair sized stream is flowing in, and the weight of the volume of water already impounded must be enormous. The pipes too, are-still .--leaking as badly aa ever whenever pressure is put on. A water rate of Is: in the £ has been levied, aud is now; beins collected. Ratepayers are still ignorant as to what the total costjbf the works will be. Tho Government estimate was £37,500, but it isSsuppos'ed now that it will reach £50,000. The Council months ago asked to': be supplied with particulars regarding the total cost, but the Works Department up to the i re...
COUNTRY WATER SUPPLIES. MR SHARKEY SPEAKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
COUNTRY WATER SUP- PLIES. ME SHARKEY SPEAKS. In a recent issue of the Daily Tele- graph, the Works Department was re- sponsible for a defence of its actions regarding country waterworks. As everyone knows, these works are us- ually estimated to cost a certain amount, but when the works come to be executed, it is often found that the actual cost is greatly in excess of the estimate. Mr J. P. Sharkey, civil and hydraulic engineer, goes bald- headed for the Works Department, and after caustica is criticising cases, thus attacks the attitude of the Govern- ment, and exposes (from his point of view) the consequences of Government supervision: — 'The Minister for &nbsp; &nbsp; Works, in the exercise of his power, as lately reported, decided that the Cobar water scheme should be carried out by its own officers, notwithstand- ing that I had offered to guarantee my estimate of cost (£16,500) by placing to the credit of the Council in a Cobar bank the sum of £1650, which was t...

Messrs Clifton aud Ward, Council valua- tors, appeared to support their assessments. Mary Andrew. Appeal against the assessment of three cottages in Dalton Park, at £26 each. John Andrew appeared for appellant. Mr Leah, Council Clerk, who appeared for the Council, elicited from Andrew that the tenants were paying 10s per week. Valuation upheld. J. H. Jeffery. Appeal against the assessment of £60 per year on his residence in Dalton Park. S. R. Wood (valuator) said he valued the house at £60. It was in thorough repair. The house would be worth 15s per week. To appellant, witness admitted that he did not go inside the fence to value the place. He had his hands on the fence. He could not say, roughly speaking, how far he was from the house. H. S. Clifton thought £60 was a fair value. He knew the place as he repaired the house recently, but...
A Friend in Need. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
A Friend in Need. The following story comes from Newcastle, where not so very long ago Mr William Filmer, a highly rospoctoJ &nbsp; resident of Abbott Street, West Mait- land, N.S.W., met an old friend. Tho fact of the meeting being unantici pated added a further charm to it. Mr Fi mer tells the correspondent of si contemporary how the gentleman he met provnd to be a friend in need, anil in a way he did not ex ect. Mi Filmer had for about 80 years beeu a sufferer from chronic diarrhoea, anl on the advice of his friond, who had suffered for 10 years from the suane complaint, but was curod hy Dr. Williams' pink pills, re:ol «-1 to test the virtues of this great mwlicine in his own case. Speaking of his com plaint Mr Filiier says : — ' At times I Mr Filmeb. (from a photo.Y was affected in a most alarming man ner, and notwithstanding all my care with regard to diet I suffered terribly. I fell away to a mere skeleton, grew weak, lost all confidence in my powers, and finally got s...
Wrightville. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
Wrightville. (From our own Correspondent.) Since my last report things have taken a turn for the better. We have water in the tanks. The old familiar sound of the stampers (so long silent) is now welcome music day and night. The people, too, are going in for purchasing land, and everything out here seems to have a permanent tone. The new Council is almost a settled thing. The social held under the auspices of the Progress Committee was a brilliant success. The working com- mittee, Messrs Scanlan, Lew, and Bax, deserve great credit for the man- ner in which everything was carried out, the supper was supplied by the ladies of Wrightville, and a real first class supper it was, there being plenty of food left to give the School children a treat next day. Without a doubt, the ladies showed their appreciation of the work the Committee has been doing by the way they responded in entering for the social, which was got up to defray expenses incurred by the Committee. The music was supplied b...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
MINING. The clean up of the Occidental mine last week, and which was briefly re- ported in our last issue, has been sufficiently satisfactory to warrant the advance in the value of shares which has taken place since the cyanide plant was started. These shares are now in the vicinity of 7s, and a fur- ther increase is probable. £1700 worth of gold, won in a few weeks, is no small item. We understand that after paying working expenses the di- rectors were able to reduce their over- draft by a very considerable amount. With plenty of water this mine should soon be numbered amongst the divi- dend paying ones. The cyanide works have proved very satisfactory, and un- doubtedly the process enhances the value of the property very much. The 504 ounces obtained were the result of &nbsp; five weeks' cyanide treatment and three weeks for the battery. At the cyanide works the machinery for the new winding plant has arrived. Now they will be able to truck from the ground level of the heap...
Restdown. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
Restdown. At Restdown the Victoria claim, a crushing from which averaged about 8dwts to the ton, has a reef varying in width from 18in to 2ft. They have not sunk far yet. The East Good Friday, from which Messrs Spain and Caldwell crushed five tons for 15 ounces gold, is down about 25 feet. The ore was taken from the bottom of the shaft where the reef is about 12 inches wide. It carries good gold from the surface to the bottom. — Messrs Goodwin and party have com- menced work on the Girl in Blue, and the shaft is down nearly 100ft, on a 12 inch reef, carrying coarse gold. This is the deepest shaft on gold on the field. -- The battery has given sat- isfaction to patrons, by whom it is de- scribed as a good amalgamator.
(From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
(From our Correspondent.) I regret to say the welcome rain we have had lately has not caused any increased activity on the different claims out here, and unless something is done at once to raise stone my next report will be that the stamps are hung up for want of stone — not water. The frosts have been very severe out here this week. The battery has been idle since Wednesday evening. On Thursday morning it was found that the steam tap of the pump was broken, and not being able to repair it on the field, the battery is stopped until another tap is obtained from Cobar. It will con- tinue crushing Victoria Camp stone then. There is, perhaps, a week's crushing there and then — finis.

MASON'S FIVE DOLLARS [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 July 1899
MASON'S FIVE DOLLARS. &nbsp; Of course, you un- derstand, Kate, that passing counterfeit bills is reprehensible. I don't happen to remember just what the penalties are, but they're severe. I'll look them up, if you think it worth while. The major, snug in the embraces of bis big leather chair, ohuckled softly at his own suggestion. Bin daughter shook her bead. «l.e was standing before the great fire, with one foot resting on the fender, her wraps thrown back, ami her hands stretched towards the cheery blaze. She made a pretty pioture, the major realised, with the flrelitsht plajing over ' her trim Bguro and burnishing the gold of her lmir, and with the little touch oF langour about her which came as the reaction after brisk exercise iu the open air. 'You're a, viotim of ciroumstnnces, certainly,' he went on. ' Naturally you believed yourself proteoted by tbe^oBlietiable feminine rights of lire, liberty, and the pursuit of bargains ; logically you supposed that tho 5 dol. bil...
