BOURKE JOCKEY CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Western Herald — 19 May 1888

BOURKE JOCKEY CLUB. ? i The annual meeting of tlie local Jockey I Club announced to take place on Tuesday 1 and Thursday, did not commence till Wed nesday owing to the heavy state of the course, as a result of the recent rain. Al though the delay proved very advantageous, the course was still heavy more especially the first day, when it cut up considerably, but as the Committee had it well rolled prior to the next day's racing, it was possibly all the better for having been worked on Wed nesday. The weather was simply perfection, being bright but mild, the usual character istics of a Darling winter. The attendance though not the largest seen on a Bourke course was still very satisfactory, whilst the attention bestowed upon Bourke races by bookmakers, ought to be very flattering. A few side shows were also in attendance. The racing generally was good, and though the heavy course had a tendency to upset both calculations and handicaps, the gentlemen entrusted with the latter task have...

Morrison, and Bloxham. A letter was read from the Works De- , .partment intimating that the promised £500 for Meek-street was now available. A communication I from the same source stated that the lowest tender for engineer's residence at the Water Works was £448, and enquiring if the Council were satisfied with the tender. It was decided to inform the Department that , the Council desired to draw up their own specifications, as they were of opinion that a suitable residence could be provided for less money. A lengthy discussion then ensiled on the tenders for the new Ohambers, upon the alternative speci fications recently,; drawn ' up. The tender of Mr. Park Avas finally accepted, on the specification which provides for an entirely new building, to be erected in front, and not as part, o...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Western Herald — 19 May 1888

The notification in the Gazelle that the Water Works are completed may be re garded as equivalent to handing them over to the Council, or at least as the first step in that direction. This once more brings to the front the question, we hare previously dealt with, as to how far the Council is justified in accepting Works shown to have detects, without at least some less interested assurance ? 1 than that of Government officials. It is beyond dispute that defects : exhibited themselves some few 'weeks back, 1 which may have been patched up or repaired, \ but certainly have not been satisfactorily -accounted for. At the time that these de fects were discovered, we urged the extreme desirability of hairing the Works inspected by some recognised competent engineer un associated with the Government, who could then assure the Council of the stability or otherwise of the Works, and the meaning of the very uncomfortable indications which at present render the whole of the work open to suspic...

BOURKE JOCKEY CLUB RACE BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Herald — 19 May 1888

BOURKE JOCKEY CLUB RACE BALL Ok Tuesday evening last the annual Ball in con- j nection with the Bourke Jockey Club was held at 1 Deignan's Hall The attendance was not so large as on former occasions. The threatening state of the weather probably accounted for this, but for all that was sufficient to comfortably fill the floor when dancing, and to render the affiair a financial success. About one hundred persons, in plain and tancy dress, assisted ui carrying out a well cliosen programme. The ball room presented a gay ap pearance. Banners hung on every side, carrying the names of the horses competing in the morrow's races. The pretty colors in which the banners were woven, and the evident care taken in their construction, reflected - great credit on the ladies, whose busy fingers had willingly undertaken the task of decorating the hall, the brunt of the work being borne by Mrs. McKenzie and Mrs. Bull. Although fancy costumes were not in the prepon derance, some of them were very pret...
