No title [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 4 November 1899
The proposed Cobar- Wilcannia rail- way has always been recognised by those interested as one of national, importance. Now this view of the question has 'caught on' with those &nbsp; people who are not directly interested, but whose interests are identical with those of far-western New South Wales in a commercial sense. Down at Dubbo last week a well-attended meeting of citizens was held to con- sider the line. The speakers realised that Dubbo and other Western towns were gradually envolving from con- sumers to producers, and anything that would provide a market for their products should be supported by them. Alderman Ryan contended that they should look on the line as a Federal Railway. ' Rival routes were spoken of, but a look at the map would show that the one from Cobar was the most direct, and they should do all they could to assist in the carrying of it. There was no doubt that a certain proportion of any country through which a railway passed was not what may be calle...
Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 4 November 1899
Local and General. Sale of Rights — The sale of rights in connection with the forthcoming cycling carnival did not come off on Saturday as advertised. As there was only a very small attendance Mr Morrison adjourned the sale. On Monday afternoon however, the rights were offered, when there was a small attend- ance. The purchasers were :— Publican's Booth, £5, G. Payne; Refreshment Stall, 10s, H. Breen; Gates, £20, E. H. Pass; Books, 10s, 'Leader' Office'. A Cooker. — During the week we were shown an ingenious little contrivance, which claims to have revolutionised cooking. It is the Peerless Steam Cooker, which has the power of cooking a complete dinner all at the one time, doing the lot to perfection, on a single quart of water, and very little fuel. There is no fear of the food burning, for as soon as water gets low, a steam whistle signal is given. It is claimed for it that it will cook meat, pudding, and vege- tables at the same time without mingling the flavors. The ordinary sto...
Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 4 November 1899
Mining. Mr Walterus Brown, Warden, re- turned on Sunday last from an ex- tended tour of official inspection, during which he visited Nymagee, Bobadah, Orange Plains, and Nyngan. He was away 12 days, and covered 839 miles, travelling in his buggy the &nbsp; f ull distance. Mr Roberts, manager of the Ches- ney, has succeeded in placing all the heavier parts of the new machinery, &nbsp; and he anticipates that by the end of the month he will have the mill in full going order. It will be remem- bered that this mill will treat fully 100 &nbsp; tons of ore daily. Before Mr Warden Brown on Tuesday, Pass and others were gran- ted one month's suspension on g.l. 129, Cobar, portion 61.

From Cobar HERALD Special. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 4 November 1899
From Cobar Herald Special. FRIDAY. After galloping yesterday, Fleet Admiral bled at the nose. It is highly improbable he will start for the Cup. The feature of yesterday's business was the backing of Merriwee for the Derby and Cup, four thousand to five to one being accepted about him for the Derby, and six thousand down to sixteen to one for the Cup. Gauleon continues favorite at ten to one, with Dewey, Wait-a-bit, Mora, and Cocos at twelve to one, for the Derby. Dewey is three to one, Cornflour and Merriwee 5 to 1. Mr James Hackett, hairdresser and to- bacconist of Mitchell street, Bourke, desires his many friends and patrons to know that all business and sporting commissions are &nbsp; strictly private, and executed with dispatch. Pre-paid telegrams replied to immediately.

BEAUCHAMP AND BACK-BLOCKER. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 4 November 1899
BEAUCHAMP AND BACK- BLOCKER. To the Editor. Sir, — I am afraid you try to be rather hard on me in your reply to my letter re the Governor's speech at the banquet in Cobar. &nbsp; &nbsp; I had no idea when writing, that my remarks would cause you so much unrest, as appears to prompt your reply. With regard to the Dreyfus inci- dent, I still hold my account of what actually was said, is correct, be that nothing now remains for both of us, but to agree to differ. I can assure you, your surmise of what actuated my movements at the banquet and my reasons for writing the letter are quite wide of the mark. I certainly never thought it at all likely that Lord Beauchamp would see my letter and even if he did, he would not know who was the writer, so that I can hardly expect any other reward but virtue, and I am sure I do not want any other. If such a highly improbable event did occur as for me to receive a present from the Gover- nor, I should, if I decided to accept it, have...
