Two Rival American Cities. CHICAGO AND ST. LOUIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 September 1899
Two Rival American Cities. CHICAGO AND ST. LOUIS. St. Louis seems to be a favourite butt against which to turn stories im- plying crudeness or newness. The Chicago' genius who, during the prev- alence of the opizootic, remarked that his horseless city was 'as quiet as St. Louis on a ho iday, won an anony- mous immortality ; while the laboured repartee of a St. Louis man that ' no save expenses, Chicago ihrew the bodies of murdered strangers into the river, and let them float to St. Louis,' was - not only far. fetched, but was countered when Chicago explained that then ' St Louis emptied the pockets and sent them along' down the river.' ' This, however, is not refined wit, to say the least. 'Better -far is the Chicago comment on. St Louis's state- ment that ' a Ao-i i'i St Louis weeps over music.' ' This is rather re- markable,' said Chicago ; ' but jit must be remembered that it is St Louis music.' ? It was said to be a St Louis editor who maintained that ' one-half of the lies told...

Latest. Peace or War. THE CRISIS COMING. KRUGHER WAVERS. London, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 September 1899
Latest. Peace or War. THE CRISIS COMING. KRUGER WAVERS. London, Thursday. The Transvaal's reply to Mr Cham- &nbsp; berlain's despatch is an impertinent document. It confirms the version of the telegram from the Cape. Yesterday Lord Wolsely and General Sir Evelyn. Wood were in consultation at the War Office for many hours. Haymeyer, the leader of tho &nbsp; ?Afrikander Party , at the Cape, has warned President Krugher not to expect help from the Cape. The Afrikander newspapers advise President Krugher to yield the fran chise and to govern liberally so as to avoid raising the suzerainty question. It is believed the British Cabinet will to-morrow fix the date for the acceptance or rejection of Sir Alfred Milner's minimum proposals by Krugher. The latter is reported to be wavering.
Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 September 1899
Topics of the Week. The censure motion moved by Mr Lyne last week, has dragged wearily on ever since. Ministerialists and others who would like an excuse to vote for Mr Reid, have been spinning out the debate, hoping against hope that something would turn up. Per- haps those in the greatest quandary were the members of the Labor Party. That members were almost hopelessly at loggerheads is nrovedby the num ber of caucuses held to discuss the situation. At the first of these it was decided, by one vote, to support the Government as per usual. Then, on Wednesday, there was trouble again in the camp over the Niel 1 advance, and this time the party decided by 10 to 8 to support Mr Lyne. It is now under stood, therefore, that 'the' Government will be defeated by a large majority. Many authorities state that Mr Reid cannot ask for a dissolution, and that His Excellency would not be justified in granting such , a ? request. The capacities of the House for Government should be exhausted befo...
Transvaal Troubles. LONDON. September 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 September 1899
Transvaal Troubles. LONDON. September 4. The Admiralty has ordered twelve &nbsp; torpedo-boat destroyers from private firms. It is believed that the majority of the Transvaal Volksraad demands the declaration of the independence of the Republic. Many talk of rushing the Natal frontiers. Mr Moneypenny, the editor of the Johannesburg Star, and other refu- gees from that city, who have arrived safely at Natal, state that, at every railway station they passed they saw trucks loaded with stores and am- munition for the Boers. The Transvaal authorities have sent 1,500,000 rounds of ammunition for Mauser rifles' to Bloemfontein, the capital of the Orange Free State. The arrest of Mr W. Fakeman, the editor of the Tiansvaal 'Leader pub- lished at Johannesburg, on a charge of treason, has ; caused an immense sensation on the Rand. The Public Prosecutor states the charge against Mr Fakeman is likely to be reduced to au offence against the prosn laws. One hundred warrants have been issu...

Restdown. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 September 1899
Restdown. (From our Correspondent.) Since my last report we have had beautiful grass rain out here ; the paddocks are beginning to look quite green— an unusual color for these parts of the country. I am sorry to say that very little water ran into the battery tank and did not fill it, as might have been expected. Mr H. Goodwin is still raising good stone from the Girl in Blue lease, and Messrs Caldwell and Wallace are still following the reef down in No. 1 east of Good Friday. Mr H. Rodger is still prospecting No. 1. north of Reward. He got on a fair chute of stone last week. Mr Budd put through 4½ tons of stone from United Restdown last week &nbsp; for 5dwts per ton, which was not up to expectations, as gold was showing freely in the stone. A parcel of the tailings have been sent away for assay, as the stone is supposed to contain some mineral which prevented the gold amalgamating. Mr Spain has 9 tons at the Battery ready to start to-morrow from Halen's. late claim. Septemb...

The report stated that 'during the past half-year, &nbsp; mining, milling, and cyanidation have been entirely suspended on account of the unprecedentedly dry weather which existed throughout that period. Expenses have been kept down to the lowest possible point, practically the only expenditure incurred at the mine being in connection with improve- ments and additions to the ball mill and plant generally, and which would ensure better results than hitherto from the treatment of ores. As was indicated by the circular before men- tioned, the directors decided to in- augurate the smelting me...
