A Telegraphic Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 31 March 1894
\ A Telegraphic. Reform. Among: minor reforms recently introduced by the Electric Telegraph -Depurr men t ia one that 13 extremely popular with newspaper men ntnl ?*$;?/* all having to receive luuythy ' wires.' In place VJi of the more or less undecipherable caligmphy of a hurried receiving operator many of the niea snueB now dune ti- the reoipient in type writing and are of course ' plain us print.' Mr. Walker desmves the thanks of vuiy many for this change, and as every journal haa from time to time minor grievances against the telegraph offico if is pleasant to be able tosajvjUittle in the other diieotion fur ouca. Presumably the cost is not appreciably greater, but if it were the gain to 'the public ia so great thnt theex'rn outlay would be money well spent if the system were made to apply, to every message sent out. It certainly ought to be applied in every cuse of cablegram and long press message.

MOLONG C.C. v CUMNOCK C.C. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 31 March 1894
MOLONG C.C. v CUMNOCK 0,0. These teams met for the third time this season on Easter Monday, and the result waa a most decisive win for Molong... Cumnock won the first match of the season by a few runs, owing to time being called before the game could be completed. The last two matches have been signal victories for the much-abused Molong cricketers. The Cum nock team (captained by A. Hamilton) was the strongest combination possible to produce. , (bar Byrnes and Selby), but Molong (cap tained by A. W. .Tempeit) hud its usual luck in being minus four of its beet men. The visiting captaiu won the toss and elected to, bat. Howard, with;bisvusual. biilliance, and Stevens, with his. steady defence, caused our boys a lot of trouble; but w-hen the former was splendidly caught by Keenun and ;Finch had slogged a dozen, .the game changed into a funeral— and a slow one at that, the only redeeming feature being the .well deserved 11 made in good style by F; Youns,.

VOLUNTE ERS' SOCIAL. ? ? Urged on by several enthusiHStic disciples of Terpsichore, the members of the Molong Volunteer Company decided to wind up their annual celebration with a social dance in the School of Arts in the evening. Though this decision was arrived at at a late hour, a goodly number of the weaker and sterner sex of society graced the large hall with their presence, , and a most enjoyable time was spent until midnight, when the assemblage dispersed,- regretting that the happy time— the annual celebration of the Molong volunteer Uompany — they had been looking foi ward to for several weeks was, by the ordinary flight of time; numbered amongst the things of the past.

RIFLE MaTCH. ? ' A 8 an additional attraction' to the picnic, ' ' a rifle match between the Molong and Orange '? ?Volunteer Rifle Clubs was shot on the '? ? local range. The day was not a good one . ' for first-class shooting. There was a nasty choppy wind blowing from morn till eve, and this had a telling effect in the case of ? some of the shootists. Ob the whole, though, the shooting was very fair, and the contest very close, tue winning team (Orange) only '? gaining a victory by eight points. Molong attributes its defeat to the uimccountable falling off of Sergt. T. Ball and Private Sutton at the 600 yards range, where the former scoied only five points and the latter nine; but still it does not wish to detract one s , .iota from the honour attached to the victory w~. obtained by Orange.
