The Neild Advance. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 16 September 1899
The Neild Advance. The evidence in the Nield case has been issued by the Government Prin- ter. It contains a good deal of mat- ter referring to payments, to members in connection with other cmmiissions. In regard to the Northern Territory Syndicate Colonel Neild went home to float, he received £500 for flotation and other expenses'; £250 was ob- tained by the sale of ten shares by members of the syndicate, and of ten shares belonging to Colonel Nield. That gentleman stated that his total expenses in the trip ran into nearly £1250. The £350. at which ho esti- mated his expenses in connection with the charity report, was partly for the pnrchaso of documents, partly for travelling expenses in visitinc certain towns in England, and partly for liv- ing expenses while detained three mouths in London waiting to see Mr Chamberlain, and. to obtain necessary information. As for the literary va'ue of the work done, Colonel Neild mentioned that Mr Hogue had told, him thatit was worth at least £...
Mount Drysdale. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 16 September 1899
Mount Drysdale. (From our Correspondent.) The remarkable feature in connec- tion with the surroundings of this village is a copious growth of herbage on the eastern side of the hill — and not a solitary blade on the western side. The contractor for the erection of the cyanide plant expects to complete about the end of the present week. The wooden vats were finished and filled with water last Saturday night. The connecting pipes for the cyanida- tion have all been laid, and operations will be commenced on completion of the tailings tip tramline. The Eldorado and both Mount Drysdale mills are in full swing, work- ing three shifts. The Drysdale Manager has started an open cut at No. 2 shaft, the object being npparently to sink on the rich veins worked in the boom days. The stone now broken in bulk in the open cut is estimated to yield from five to eight dwts per ton by mill treatment. All other claims on the Drysdale field are at present under suspension. The Old Billagoe Company have ...

The Governor's Visit. THE SUB-COMMITTEE'S MEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 16 September 1899
The Governor's Visit. THE SUB-COMMITTEE'S MEET. The sub-committees representing the Council, Pastoralists, and towns- people, met in the Council Chambers on Friday evening, 8th September. There were present :— Messrs Snelson (Mayor), Leah, James, Mathews, Philips, Andrews, Duffy, Henning, Pass, Armstrong, Hunt, and Mus- &nbsp; grove. The Mayor said the committee had &nbsp; met to see what could be done to re- ceive the Governor. He expected to see more attend. Mr Hogan had sent in an apology. He did not suppose that the political crisis would alter the Gover- nor's visit. He wired that day to see if the crisis would affect the visit, and had not yet received an answer. A banquet, as inexpensive as possible, was generally favored. It would be appreciated just as well. Mr Armstrong thought before they did anything they should be certain that the Governor would come. He &nbsp; thought they should adjourn till then. Pastoralists would sooner see the &nbsp...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 16 September 1899
MINING. Me J. M. Scott, Mining Broker, Cobar, reports : —Business in the Share Market has been more regular than for some time past, and a num- ber of sales has been recorded. Last &nbsp; Monday's rain filled all the local min- ing dams to excess; consequently &nbsp; there will be no stoppages for want of water for months to come. Chesneys have been in good demand, and sold at steady rates; Occidentals have been &nbsp; offered a little lower, but there are very few shares offering; Young Aus- tralians are quiet; Westerns have &nbsp; been offered a little lower, but buyers and sellers are too wide to admit of bnsiness being done; Drysdales were &nbsp; offered and sold, at the lowest limit ever reached by this stock; this &nbsp; is attributable of course to the call due on the 29th inst. Mount Pleasants have had a little enquiry, after laying dormant for a couple of years. This mine has been let on tribute with the option of purchase, to...
Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 16 September 1899
Topics of the Week. We do not know whether the sys- tematically neglected back country will profit greatly by the ejection from office of the political Tweedlums and the accession to power of the political Tweedledees, but as supporters for many vears of the party headed by Mr W. J. Lyne, we naturally welcome its victory in the interests of the country. In common with the bulk of the country press, this journal has never put faith in the Right Hon. G. H. Reid, his imaginary surpluses, his promises of a prosperity never at- tained, his Yes-No attitude on Fed- eration, and his inability to run a Free- trade political show except with a semi-Protectionist tariff. We reckon this is getting too big a province to be run by anabashed, undisguised, political opportunists ; and we wel- come as Premier a man of some con- &nbsp; sistency, while we do not on all points agree with him. The Labor Party having decided to support the new administration, and indeed having given it being, we ...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 16 September 1899
Local and General. Insanity. — On Saturday the Police Magis- trate ordered that James O'Connor be re- moved to the insane asylum at Parramatta. William English, who had been burlesquing a bank burglary, armed with two pipes, was also arrested on the suspicion of being insane.

Social at Drysdale. (From a Correspondent.) On Monday, 4th inst., the little vil- lage of Drysdale was enlivened by a social (held in Carrington Hall), given by the young ladies of that town. The hall was tastefully decorated with flags, blossoms, and evergreens, and reflected great credit on all concerned. About 20 couples were present. Dan- cing was kept up until the small hours on Tuesday morning, when all dispersed, having spent a pleasant evening. Mr R. Poole acted as M.C., and carried out everything in a very creditable manner. Ballot was taken as to the belle of the evening, which was decided in favor of Miss C. Hamb- lin, who was neatly attired, and was &nbsp; in every respect entitled to the honor she had gained. All the ladies looked becoming and did full justice to the occasion. The following is a list of the dresses worn : — &nbsp; Mrs E. Hinds, black satin, diamond orna- ments. ,, C. Hamblin, black and marone, white silk trimmings. „ Carrington, cream si...

Telegrams. SYDNEY. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 16 September 1899
Telegrams. SYDNEY. FRIDAY. In the Assembly yesterday, after announcing the new Ministry, Mr Lyne asked for a Supply Bill amount- ing to £1,024,000. Mr Miller said he claimed that the old Protectionist Party was relieved of any party allegiance to Mr Lyne, since he pledged himself to sink the fiscal issue. Mr Reid said it would be an act of public treachery if the Government attempted to touch the tariff, because they got into office on the distinct un- derstanding that uo such attempt would be made. The Supply Bill then passed through all stages. On the motion of Mr Lyne, the House then adjourned until October 17th. The Council then passed the Bill without debate. In the course of. an interview, Mr Lyne declined to make any statement in regard to his intended policy, al- though he admitted that he intended to introduce an Early Closing Bill, and added that Mr Wise would deal with civil servants in a satisfactory man- ner. Mr Reid said that Mr Lyne passed by nearly all the best men i...
