NYNGAN ITEMS. (From the ADVOCATE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 7 April 1894
NYNGAN ITEMS. (From the ADVOCATE.) WILLIAM BAILEY was charged at the Nyngan Police Court on Wednesday with furious driving iu Panjee-street. This was a case which arose out of the accident to Mrs. Duffy a week or two ago. Very little evi- &nbsp; dence was given in support, and the defence was fully substantiated. The case was dismissed. The P.M. remarked that it was very clear there was no offence under the Act, and if there was any remedy it would be by civil action, although be could not express an opinion one way or the other. On Sunday 161 paints of rain fell at Cobar, and 121 at Nymagee. The roof was blown off the Priory Hotel, on the Cobar road. Railway rates from Sydney to Nyngan upon most goods are about £4 more than to Byrock - a further distance of 40 miles. So that a storekeeper can actually have his goods sent from Sydney to Byrock and return to Nyngan, giving extra work to railway officials, and have them landed nearly £2 cheaper than by having them sent direct ...
ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 7 April 1894
ITEMS OF INTEREST. An extraordinary case of cruelly was heard at Brunswick Police Court (Victoria) on Wednesday. James Boulton was charged with ill-treating his son, aged 11. Some time ago the boy ran away from home, and the father got him back and put chains on each leg, in the same way as convicts are chained, and attached him to a log in the yard. These were kept on all day and night. He also whipped him on the least provocation. The bench fined the father £5, or a month. One justice dissented, and said the fine should be £10. Two deaths from diphtheria have occurred in the Mundooran district, and two others of a family where a member died are very ill from the same complaint. Anxiety if felt, and a further spread of the disease is feared. At Grong Grong on Saturday a man named Henry Tarren was crushed to death by a tree he was grubbing. His brains were scattered about, and the weight of the tree drove his feet into the ground to a depth of nearly an inch. A drowning fatality occ...
Sensational Affair at Cuddell. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 7 April 1894
Sensational Affair at Cuddell. AT the Narrandera police court on Thursday, Ola James Jepson, school teacher at Cuddell, was charged with setting fire to the dwelling house of Henry Sweeting, sawmill proprietor, last Wednesday night, knowing there were persons therein ; and Sweeting was charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm upon Jepson by shooting at him. It was elicited in evidence that Jepson and his wife have for some time been living unhappily together, and for some days prior to last Tuesday, Mrs. Jepson was staying with Sweeting. On Tuesday night Jepson visited the Stweetings for the purpose of getting a piece of music, which he claimed as his. Mrs Jepson refused to give it up, and a dispute arose between Jepson and Sweeting, the latter calling one of his men to throw Jepson out. Eventually Jepson was handed the music, and he left. On Wednesday Jepson was in Narrandera, and returned home the worst for liquor. About midnight he went to the room where his wife slept at Swe...
NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 11 April 1894
NOTES AND COMMENTS. The case of liquor adulteration heard in Sydney last week, when a hotelkeeper was fined for exposing for sale whisfcy flavoured with sulphuric acid, should make lovers of the "crater" chary of imbibing too freely of the potheen. It certainly is unpleasant to have tbe many natural dangers which onr total abstinence friends tell us lurk in each and every glass of unadulterated spirit increased bj artificial means. Filtered water as an addendum would probably do more good than harm, though most customers would prefer the toning down process to be left to themselves to effect; bnt when, in addition to water, oil of vitriol in employed as the agent with which the over-weakened liqnor is to be restore') to the semblance of its former strength, it is time for all to protest. No wonder that drink figures prominently among the causes which fill oar asylums. But if whisky is to be foresworn as dangerously adulterated, where to find a safe substitute is the next question. T...

Sm,-I read tbe leader in your issue of tbe 7th April with much interest. In tbe first place, the Graziers' Meat- Export Go. of New South Wales will be only too pleased if local ohilling works are estab lished in all the leading centres, and I feci quite sure that the small amount of capital required to complete the Dubbo works will soon be forthcoming. Onr company wiU have to expend a large sum to ereot the central freezing works and large storage for the frozen meat in Sydney, and will oertainly have to lease a big freozing ohamber in London as a depGt, I have been trying to induce the Bourke Co. to add ohilling works, and I think they will do so if they otn raise the required capital.

ELECTORAL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 11 April 1894
ELECTORAL MATTERS. AN erronoous impression with regard to the renewal of electors' rights appears to prevail in some quarters. It is imagined that the rights now issued must last for three years, and cannot be renewed. For the benefit of people Buffering from a doubt on this point it may be explained that section 39 of the Act provides for the issue of eubntitutod rights " in any case where the right may be lost, torn, defaced, or biicomo illegible in any essential parti cular.'' Repeated requests having been ruceived for the extension of the time which the police have to delivei the rights in, the time has been extended to April 28. The reason for this is the heavy state of the roadB in many of the country districts, making it almost im possible for the police to got about The extension of time will not in any way interfere with the date of the completion of the work in connection with the Act, and everything wi 1 be ready, as the Promier has stated, by tho end of May. The appointm...
SWIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 11 April 1894
SWIMMING. AN interesting address was delivered on Saturday by the Minister for Public Instruc tion, on the occasion of presenting the prizes to the successful members of tbe Fort-street School Swimtnihg Club. The annual report .of the club showed that there were 220 members, and during thj season tbey had regularly attended the Natatorium bathe for practice once a week. Three teachers were .ulways present, and, together with tbe elder fooys, had taught the beginners the art of natation. The great aim of the club was to Ket all the boys in tbe school to learn the art. It was hoped that the Minister would include swimming amongst tbe compulsory subjects of the publie school curriculum. The Hon. F. W. Suitor, in moving the adoption of the report, said that lie was sure .everyone interested in either the mental or physical development of the young people who were placed under their oharge must be ouly ton glad to be present on this oacasion. In the annual report it had been suggested th...
ROUND THE W0RLD WITHOUT MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 11 April 1894
IIOUXD THE 1F0RLD WITHOUT MOXEY. HASHER an odd coincidence occurred on boird tho steamship Alttmeda, whioh arrived in Sydney from Sa:i Francisco last week. It was discovered that two young newspaper men wore aboard working their parage, and that both were on a trip round the world nn a wager that they would completo their journey within a speci6ed time, starting without money and working thoir way among strangers without sending for assis tance of any kind from their friends. The oddest part of it was that upon leaving San Francisco neither knew of the presence of the other on hoard the steamer, nor possessed knowledge of the other's intended trip. One had started from New York, and had worked across the American continent, making a southern detour to escape the cold and snow of the northern states during the winter months in the northern hemisphere, while the other had started from Chicago and taken a northern route. One was a young American with literary ambitions, who has contrib...

THE DUBBO LIBERAL AND MACQUARIE ADYOCATE. Wednesday, April 11,1894. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 11 April 1894
THE DUBBO LIBERAL AND IHACQUARIE ADYOCATE. WeOneMUty, April 11,180*. Toe question of liability in con nection with the bonds given by aldermen to cover municipal overdrafts has been brought into prominence by the position of the Plattsburg Council, That Council's overdraft with the bank amounts to &lt;£1480, and was guaranteed by bonds given by the aldermen. The bank has called up the overdraft, and as the Council could not pay, the aldermen who gave the guarantees have been called upon to make good the amount. To those who have argued in con nection with the bond dispute in our local Council, that sign ing was a mere matter of form, the Plattsburg incident will oome as a surprise; and greater difficulty will have to be over come, ia the face of this de velopment, to induce the ob jecting aldermen to make them selves personally responsible for the Council's liability. The stand taken by those aldermen who refused to sign the bond has had the good result of a large amount of ...
