Sudden Death. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911
Sudden Death. &nbsp; At about midday on Wednesday Mr. Robert Magrain Reily was found lying dead on his bed at his residence in Lachlan Street, by his son, Mr. Robert George Reily. He was last seen alive by one of the neighbors at about 10 a.m. on the previous day, and it is assumed that death must have taken place shortly after. The baker with whom the deceased was dealing, not seeing the deceased about the place when he called on Wednesday morning, communicated his fears to Mr. R. G. Reily, and upon the latter immediately going to the place he was horrified to find the body lying upon the bed fully clothed, with the exception of a coat, the spirit evidently having departed peacefully without a struggle. As the deceased had been an invalid for a number of years an inquest was dispensed with, death having re- sulted from natural causes. The late Mr. Reily was a native of West Maitland, and 66 years of age. When eight years old he went to reside at Middle Adelong with his pare...

Riot at the Sydney Show Ground. At Skuthorpe's Buck jumping - Show. Skuthorpe'B buckjumping show at the Royal Agricultural Society's grounds on Saturday. afternoon dif fered greatly from the anticipations of those who attended. At 2 o'clock, the time at which a start was made, there were between 60,000 and 70,000 spectators round the ring, and even the roofs of the pavilions were packed with onlookers. The first item was a competition for swagmeri, for which three entered ; but before this had been completed an invasion of , the ground set in, which lapidly assumed large pro protiona, until tho crowd had charge to such an extent that further pro ceedings were out of the question for a time. For an hour and a quarter, indeed, an unruly mob had posses sion, and there seemed every reason to fear still more riotous develop ments. An attempt was made by a number of venturesome youths to clamber on to the new grandstand, which is not yet complete, and there fore still in the contractors' ...
Physical Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 29 March 1911
, Physical Supremacy, In the course of a discussion con cerning the passing of the heavy weight boxing championship into the keeping of the colored race, Clarence Weber, Australia's champion wrestler and strong man, said :-" I cannot see why there Bhoald be so much worry over the fact that Jack Johnson has won the world's, championship in boxing. It does not mean by any means that Johnson is a better man than any white man, but merely that he is better at boxing under Marquis of Queeusberry rales-as they are permitted, not as the authors in tended they should be interpreted. Now, I am billing, in order to show that physical supremacy is not by any means . the: prerogative of the boxer, to enter into a contest with any heavyweight boxer and pit my game against his, to show which is the better man. By this I mean that he may box and I shall wrestle. We should struggle to a finish-till one iB not in a position to continue. " There would.be no brutality in. a contest of this kind," cont...
