SCHOOLBOY SKIRMISHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 February 1900

SCHOOLBOY SKIRMISHES. At one time boys in this country con tented • themselves with playing "Bobbies and Busbies." Now, in Sydney, they play "Britons and Boers" with results befitting tbe occasion. ' The different suburbs have re-olved themselves into "pushes," fifty to a hundred boys each, and when the opportunity offers one of these pushes sallies forth and engages the boys of another suburb in as deadly combat as sticks and stones make possible. A battle of the character named occurred at Waterloo on Tuesday night. The push of Alexandria, calling themselves "BritonB," went forth to dispute the right of the Waterloos to the bridge which crosses the Waterloo swamp. This was re-christened ''Tugela," and at the moment of. the battle opening was held by the "Boers," The en- ' gageraent commenced in the usual desultory way, the sides exchanging shots at a distance in the shape of j of pieces of blue mefal. Then the 1 "British" commander ordered up his j sharpshooters, a picked corpp, w...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 February 1900

LOCAL AHMENERAL NEWS Mr. Tell Mead, who has been seriously ill with inflammation of the lungs during the last week is recover ing. At the Cobargo public school Mr. W. Meaker bas just completed the forming of a new tennis court. Situ ated as it is on the slope of the hill above the school, a lot of cutting and filling had to be done to get the re quired level, and the contractor has done his work honestly and well, al though the way in which the court was laid out entailed a deal of un necessary labor. Mr. Ward has had the footpath from the school to the bridge thoroughly repaired with the surplus gravel, and with a little assis tance from the maintenance man, it can now be kept in good order. The court has been enclo.ed with a high wire netting fence, and the children will in -a few weeks be enabled to practise at the popular winter game. The cost of the work was somewhere about £12. On Saturday last Mr. Ci-ayton Burns gave a delightful entertainment at the School of Arts. Edison's ...

The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9. 1900 [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 February 1900

For the cause that lacks assistance, 1'or the icrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that ca» do. cob.vrgo, friday, kkuiiuauv 9. 19:10 The j>ractical exhibitions of loyalty in the dispatch of soldiers to the war and the monetary subscriptions to the Buihmen's and Patriotic Ti'unda must dclfght the hearts of all L yal British bu* jpctp. And there appears to be no limit to the number of volunteers who are willing to take the risk of forfieit ing their Uvea ia defence of the honor and 6afety of the British Empire. Per haps all this is only what might be expected from a people who enjoy and appreciate tho glorious liberties and freedom they have under the Union Jack. Still there are some—aa iiifini tessirual few—who are recreant to all sense of decency and gratitude, and fulminate against the very pow-r and institutions under which they live and prosper.

THE SOCIAL WORK OF THE SALVATION ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 17 February 1900

THE SOCIAL WORK OF THE SALVATION ARMY. At the opening of the Salvation Army " Anchorage" the Premier took credi. f«r having been instrumental in raising last year's Qorernmer.t grant in aid of the social work done bf this institu tion, and ha promised to increase it further during the year to come. Ifc may be hoped that Mr. Lyr.e will see Iris way to stick to every word of this.' There is no philanthropic organisation in our midst, with stronger claims to public byiupathy thin the Salvation Army, a'id it is not too much to say that- for every pound received from the .ctito tangible value has been returned. The reclamation of one abandoned character, aa ic converts a foe of society into a friend and helper, is a ! service to the community which, apart 1 from the oiorsl g-«in, would comrrer- j cially off-set a very considerable sum of mo-my. Throughout the world the Salvation Army makes thousands of such conversions ever year. In Aus tralia alone it has 32 institutions for the roscue ...

No commander ever exposed himself more throughout an entire fight than did "Wellington at Waterloo. He was constantly besought by others to place hitruelf a little more oat of danget. At one time, whan standing in^ the centre of the high road in front of Mont St. Jean, in the midst of Ms staff, musket and cannon shot show ered ah around him and spattered against a tree a few miles away.

Salaries of State Governors. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 17 February 1900

Salaries of State Governors. TnE vexed question of State Governors has been decided by the Australian Premiers. Tlio salaries are (o li.; re duced. Great Britain is stil) to have the right of appointment, and gentle men selected are not to be expected to supplement their salaries out of their private incomes. That Eugland it) to still have the power of choice is not of any great importance, since no doubt exists of lha desire of the mother coun try to select only gentlemen who are thoroughly eligible. The debatable point is whether, in view of the de cision come to that the present salaries are to be reduced, any but gentlemen of means who are willing to supplement their pay out of their private incomes would eventually prove acceptable per-' sons. Say that we pay our State Governors only £4000 a year, the! question is if we are to expect them to entertain, whether the remuneration is ] sufficient for the needs of their eatab- j lishments ? That the present salaries' of £5000 or-£70...
