LOST IN THE BUSH A NIGHT OUT. MID RAIN AND MUD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 21 October 1899

LOST IN THE BUSH A NIGHT OUT. MID RAIN AND MUD. One of the peculiar characteristics of tbe country surrounding Cobar is a perplexing sameness that often mys- tifies those who wander from the beaten track, and make incursions into the bush. The nature of the scenery is much the same, and there are few hills to the summit of which one in distress could climb and get an idea of his or her location. Then there are no running streams which are so com- mon in other parts of the country, and which often prove of so much assis- tance to the bushman who has lost his bearings. So it cannot be wondered at that when Mrs John Bailey lost her way on Saturday afternoon last, she wandered on in exactly tbe opposite direction to Cobar. Saturday, it will be remembered, was a nasty windy day, and showers of blinding dust, combined with a muggy heat, made one feel overcome with a desire to get away from it all. It was a feeling of this nature that caused Mrs Bailey to get the horse and buggy and take h...

Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 21 October 1899

Topics of the Week. Thk matter of a proposed railway from Cobar to Wilcannia was on Mon- day last enquired into by the Parlia- mentary Standing Committee on Pub- lic Works. This body had just re- turned from holding enquiries on the Darling. They had two missions, the other one being the advisability of constructing locks and weirs on the Darling, between Bourke and Menin- die. Of course the two schemes may be looked upon as rival ones, and the Committee will only recommend one. The water works proposed would cost about £530,000, but it is hardly pro- bable tbat they will be recommended. In 1896 the Committee reported, with respect to the Darling River locks and weirs, ' It is not reasonable that the total cost of works which will much benefit the sister colonies, have the result of lessening the railway revenue, and transfer trade to business centres beyond its confines, should be borne by this colony alone. The navigation of the Darling River is a matter which will be more compreh...

PICNIC TO MOUNT BOPPY. A DAY OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 21 October 1899

PICNIC TO MOUNT BOPPY. A DAY OUT. There was huge muster at the Rail- way Station on Wednesday last, on the occasion of the Church of England   Sunday School picnic, to which all and sundry were invited to attend. The small charge of 6d for children and 2s 6d for adults was not a pro- hibitive price, and although the idea was not inaugurated as a money- making mission, there should be a tidy surplus. The Rev. A. R. Martin generally supervised everything, and the prevailing opinion is that he got   through his rather big contract in a surprisingly satisfactory way. Messrs   Soane and Hooper, and Sunday School teachers also greatly assisted in the supervision. Roughly, estimated there were nearly 1000,   excursionists, principally juveniles, and there was little vacant space in the 12 carriages that comprised the train. One gentleman who gained   his opinion by experience no doubt, tells us they were packed like sardines ...

The modest daily unostentatiously remarks that tho Flagship Royal Arthur will leavo on a cruise in Vic torian waters towards the end of this month. Tho fact that shortly after her arrival in Melbourne the Cup Carnival will be in full swing is one of those inexplicable phenomenons wnicn startle people occasionally. A similar coincidence ocourred last Cup time, and it is also worthy of note that the Royal Arthur (with the Admiral on board of course) happened to be at Adelaide on the arrival of Lord Tenny- son and shortly before happened to be at Perth on the opening of the Cool- gardie Exhibition.

Cobar Water Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 21 October 1899

Cobar Water Scheme. It really does seem now that the Cobar water supply scheme will be carried out. At present the Depart- ment surveyors are taking the various levels and measurements for the new scheme, preparatory to the preparation of plans and specifications for the completion of the work. Mr Wade, the officer who reported on the proposal some months ago, and whose scheme has met with the ap- proval of all concerned, was in town this week in connection with the work.   A contract has been let to Mr Packs for the ploughing of an area for a supply tank. In all probability the Brewery tank will be resumed at an early date, but it is not considered that this will provide sufficient water for requirements in carrying out the work. It is understood that tenders will be called as soon as possible. A wag said the other day that pork in the Transvaal should have a fall, when the Boer slaughter commences in earnest.

Telegrams. SYDNEY, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 21 October 1899

Telegrams. Sydney. Friday. A scene occurred in the House last night between Messrs Sleath and Griffiths. The former called the latter a liar, and threatened to deal with him outside. After some cross-firing Mr Sleath apologised. The debate concluded at 8 o'clock this morning. The proposal to send a contingent to the Transvaal was carried by 78 to 10, amid great cheering and the sing- ing of the National Anthem. A feature of the discussion was the attitude of a majority of the Labor Party, who strongly supported the proposal. Altogether the proceedings were lively, without any serious dis- order. The Upper House carried the pro- posals on the voices, amid cheers. The Cabinet will hold a meeting this afternoon to decide on the person- nel of the troops for the Transvaal. Mr O'Sullivan, Minister for Works, said he would move next week that the Dubbo-Coonamble railway be carried out. He also gave notice of his intention to refer to the Works Committee the Wellington - Werris Creek line,...

MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 21 October 1899

MINING. The shareholders of the Chesney Cobar Company have empowered the directors to borrow £20,000 on de- bentures for use at the mine. The resolution was supported by 229 shareholders (representing 156,517 shares) out of a total number of share- holders of 266, representing 179,249 shares. The Occidental mill cleaned up last Saturday, having had a three weeks' run. The result was considered very satisfactory, being 182½oz of gold.   This, added to the last cleaning from the cyanide works, when 418oz were obtained, makes the total value of the gold won in tho joint cleanings, at about £2,250. At this rate the Occi- dental will soon be compiling a divi- dend. The cyanide cleaning was for a five weeks' run. Convent children's Concert in the Masonic Hall on 9th November.

The Melbourne Cup. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 21 October 1899

The Melbourne Cup. At least once a year all Australians have their attentions riveted in one direction — the Melbourne Cup. Federalists and anti-Federalists, Bil- lites and anti-Billites are united in one respect — each and all have lively Melbourne Cup anticipation. A great horse race has irresistible attractions for visitors and not a few foreigners, as well. As the Melbourne Cup is   the greatest equine contest in the southern world what wonder that everybody is more or less agitated as   the first Tuesday in November draws near. As the Melbourne Cup is an institution, so also is Tattersall's Sweep on the event. And the people of Australia established both with no little enthusiasm. To draw a horse in a great consultation is a delight   approaching a Cabinet portfolio for the first time; but to draw the winner   of the Melbourne Cup in an achieve-   ment equal to that of the Premiership of Federated Australia in sol...
