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, MARCH 23, 1900. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 March 1900
ii'ur the cause thai I neks assistance, For the icrongs that need resistance, -For the future in the distance, Ami the good that ice ca > do. ■codaugo, fnidav, March 23, 1900. Thk yuuug and energetic member for BiftidwooJ, Mr. Clinpmau (wlio sup planted the bucknumber, Mr. Ryrie) uu doubt spoko from the depth of his heart when, at the Ministerial bsn squet at Bega, in refening to the lack ol accommodation at the port of Tathra, be said, "The Bega jpcojvle tccre vci&culbj easily satisfied." ' The inade quate and primitive shipping arrange ments at Tathra are simply a'disgiuco and a reproaching monument to a quarter of a century's almott barren Parliamentary misrepresentation. There is no dodging the fact that the . Bega electorate, from corner to cor ner, has been neglected by its Parlia mentary representatives. And it is a miserable commentary on Bega's (and -aforetime Eden's) elect that it has ■been nesessarj tor the Bega Vigilance Committee to drag the Minister for Work...
The Late Private W. ABRAHAMS. (Written for the Cobargo Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 March 1900
The Late Private W. ABRAHAMS. (Written for the Cobargo Chronicle.) &nbsp; It was scarcely to be expected that our representatives in South Africa would all come off scot free when they so valiantly undertook to throw in their lot with the "Soldiers of the &nbsp; Empire" and, if need be, shed their &nbsp; last drop of blood in defence of its honor. And as if in confirmation of this natural inference, word came through on Sunday last that Private William Abrahams, son of Mr. J. Abrahams, and a member of the first detachment that left here for the seat of war, was killed in action at the battle of Driefontein, whilst serving under General French. When the sad news arrived great sorrow was felt for the bereaved relatives, who justly manifested great pride in the gallant young soldier who was destined to be Bega's first to sacrifice his life in the battles of the Empire. The attach ment that existed between young Abrahams and his parents should be a lesson in fili...
Marriages on the Battle-field. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
I Marriages on the Battle-field One of the most notable features -ia connection with the siege of Kimber ley is the callous way in which the inhabitants treated the Boer bombard ment, even finding time to cele*brate three weddings during the process of hostilities''(says a London contempor ary)- , However unique this may seem, reference to past campaigns will reveal other cases of a similar nature. Even after the slaughter of Waterloo, two weddiags came off tin the field, one being especially pathetic in detail. A young officer in a well-known cavalry regiment sent direct frost Eug'.and was ordered to leave home a few -days before he was to have been married, and his fiancee, disappointed and anxious ab the turn tilings had &ik«n, decided to follow him'despite his pro tests. This she did unknown to her lover, and was in the neighbourhood when the great battle was fought. After the victory she failed to gaift any news of hiin ; so, thinking he must have fallen, employed a pea...
The Week's War. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
The ttleek's Ulan. Ex.President Steyn's accusatory re ply to Ljrd Roberts' protest against tbe abuse of the signals of surrender by the Boers is attributed to President Kruger. The leading English news papers stigmatise the message as an appalling piece of effrontery, which completes the Boera' own undoing. The Standard, Daily News, Morning Post, and other newspapers pay tributes to the colonies' splendid loyalty, which it is considered, enli.les them to give the fu'lest expression to an undivided Empire's expectations. In connection with Colonel Plumer's advance to th« relief of Mafeking,_it transpires that he is convoying three trains of supplies for the starving garrison and townsfolk. The guarding of these trains is ham pering the progress of the relief force. It is reported that the War Office has received a message brought by Colonel Plumer's scout to the British in Rho desia that Mafeking has been relieved. The authorities are witholding the publication of the news until the ...
Rough on the Corn Proprietress. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
Rough on the Corn Proprietress. A lady, grievously tormented with a corn on her toe, was advised by one of herfriends to anoint it with phosphorus, which, in a weak moment she did, but forgot to tell her husband before re tiring at night. It had just turned twelve when the hnsband awoke, and was startled to see something sparkling at the foot of the . bed. He had never heard of a fire-fly in the locality, nor did he ever remember seeing such a terrible-looking object aB the toe pre. sented. Beaching carefully out of bed till he found one of his slippers, he raised it high in the air and brought it down with great force upon the mysterious light. A shriek and an avalanche of bed-clothes, and all was over. When at Ust he released him self from the bed-clothes, he discovered his wife groaning in a corner of the bedroom, but she had not got that phosphorated corn.
"Evil to him who evil thinks." THEY SAY: [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
" Evil to him who evil think*." THEY SAY: Th&t a Centrilba mail stopped his Sydney piper for fear of plague infection. That the N.S.W. Rugby Union lost over .£100 over the visit of the English team of footballers. That an extraordinarily large number of wealthy aristocrats- have fallen in the Transvaal war—that's "patriotism. That Copcland might make a hard working practical Agent-General—but lie won't impress society. That Chamberlain will advocate the passing of the Commonwealth Bill without alteration. That if the Bega Vigilance Committee stick to their gnus they will Becure the resumption of the racecourse. That if, as the "Gazette" says, Mr. Pell was not nominated for the seat on the Bega Conncil, then hie requisitionists acted a. shabby part. That on Sundays, when some churches are praying for the success of British arms, Powell and his gallant men while away the Sabbath in football and cricket. That the aations seem to admire the Boers at a distance only. That the' ni...
The German Emperor. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
The German Emperor. " The German Emperor," writes the Spectator, " is the only sovereign in the world, except tlie Queen, against whose private character no one has ever a word to say." He has simple habits and tastes in private life, and highly prizes German domestic life and its affeptions. He is a devoted bus. band, and the story is told that while at Schleswig, the home of the Empress he spoke of her in a loud and hearty tone as the pearl more oostly than any -other gift, which that province had offered him. The Emperor 3b a great believer in the efficacy of the cold toft. He has one every morning; After his bath his babit is to breakfast at . half-. past six, and immediately aflerwards he goes into his study and tackles the enormous mass of letters and corres pondence that awaits him. By 9 o'clock a good deal of business has been transacted, and if the weather is propitious, he takes a drive and afterwards a walk. In inclement weather he goes to a riding school or fences. At 7 ...
BERMAGUI PATRIOTIC CONCERT AND BALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
BEEMAGUI PATRIOTIC CONCERT A2JD BALL. The people of Bermagui are to be con gratulated upon the success of their ejforjts to raise money In oid of thr> N.S.W. Patriotic Fund. It was only a few days ago that the move "Wa« made to organise the entertainments, and yet so well were the promoters supported tlmt the substantial sum of ill was netted, which, added to the I private subscriptions of £10, makes1 the re-pectable total of £21 10s to be remitted to the fund. We understand Mr. J. P. Walker of Bermagui headed the list with the fine donation of £5/5. The concert, at which Mr. Pass, J'.P.,' presided, was a most enjoyable affair. The hall was tastefully decorated with -flags, the Union Jack being most in evidence. After Misa Graham (Cobar go) bad played a short overture, the chairman made a few introductory re marks. He said he felt highly honored at being asked to preside on such an important occasion; The proceeds of the evening's amusement would ha de voted to the N.S.W. Patriot...
MILKING FREQUENTLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
MILKING FREQUENTLY. It is contended by some American authorities that a more frequent milk ing than twice a day is productive of an increased milk yield and a greater percentage of solids. If this is so, and if the "yield shows a profit after calcu lating the cost of an additional milking per day, dairy farmers who study their business should i>ot be slow to put the principle into practice. Theoretically it seems sound enough, for it approxi mates to the conditions that & cow is under with her calf; but whether it turns out in practice is not so evident. If a cow shows an absolute increase in quantity and in solids extended over the whole period, then it iB clear that in conserves her energy for milk secre tioD, and not merely forces it in greater quantity over a shorter length of time. A matter of this kind might be solved at the Government Stud Farm; it would take a long while, and be eomewiiat difficult to prove, because a cow varies so considerably. " Heard's Dairyman...

The Trade of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
' The Trade of Australia TIib banquet at which the Postmaster General spoke recently was held in connection with the'Opening of exten sions to the warehouso of Messrs. Robt. Reid and Co., importers of soft, goods, in York-street. In responding to the toast of-the'firm, the principal partner 'mentioned that Australia had one tenth of the entire trade of the British Empire, the imports and ex ports amounting to £125,000,000 per anunu). Tiiis is a striking illustration' of the magnificent resources of (he Australian States. The trade is won derful when it is considered that it is only a little more than 100 years since white settlement first took place in Australia. But whether the trade will increase during the next century at the same rate as it has done during1 the existing one is very doubtful. For it is to be remembered that the greater part of the continent—more than three parts of it—is almost a wilderness, and that industrial development there' id must Im an extremely slow proc...
LADIES CRICKET MATCH. BEGA v. CANDELO. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
LADIES CRICKET MATCH. (Bt Nemo) Beqa v. Oandelo. The ladica of Bsga and Candelo Lave conclusively, proved that they are not lacking in the,martial ardor possessed by our representatives at the front; for, although unable to take an active part in the Empire's battles, they are rendering splendid service by augmen ting the funds of the Patriotic Fund. Some ten pounds being required to make up tfae " century " as this dis trict's contribution, and the financial committee being in a dilemma as to the manner of raising the necessary sum, '■ ingenious ■woman came to ■ the assis tance of her befogged compatriot and suggested a ladies cricket match, or rather two matches. The first of these came off at Candeio on Saturday, 24th inbt, when the Bega ladies were triumphant, and as a result of which some £5 were netted. The return match was played on the Bega Show Ground on Wednesday last, in the presence of nearly a couple of hundred people. As in the previous match, 15 a side were played; bu...
POPE MAY PERMIT PEIESTS TO MARRY [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
POPE MAYPEKMIT PEIESTS TO MAKRY The Pope is comtemplating an order permitting the priests of the Catholic Church to marry. The first step has already been taken in the encyclical to the Bishops of South America, in which permission is given to the priests there to take wires unto them selves. Mgr. Galleza, rector of the Spanish College in Rome, says that the concession granted by the Holy Father to priests in South America is to meet a special condition. ' I do not think His Holiness will issue a general order releasing all the priests of the Church, from their vows of celibaoy,' Mgr. Gallege continued. 1 This question of celibacy having been established by a General Council; I think that ouly a General Council would have' authority to make a change. On the other hand, Mgr. Tolli, one of the most eminent jurists - of the Vatican, is firmly convinced that the Pope put poses to abolish thj3 rule of celibracy for the priesthood^ "before lie dies.' Mgr. Tolli eays: ' The day the Pope ca...

The CUeek's Ulai*. The Boer resistance at Kroonstadt and other places is understood os intended to cover their ultimate witbdrawl of the long range guns, which are in ten ted to protect Pretoria. Skirmishes have occurred near Elands Liagte. General Buller is pushing forward with fresh troops. Pour hundred Boers have re-occupied Griqualand, imprison ing the loyalists.

THE SURYIVAL OF THE FITTEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 March 1900
THESURYIYALOFTHE FITTEST The doctrine of ' the svrvival of the fittest" is the keynote or the anthem which sounds the destiny of the world. What nation has ever proved itself to be fittest in colonising on a sound and secure basis, and ruling with a firm, just and beneficient hand 1 Surely the Anglo Saxon. They have ever done, what no other nation in the world has, made colonisation a perfect success : a success which is marvellously accentuated by the fact that Ureat Britain and its colonies to-day cover an ar.m of 12,208,000 square miles, containing a population of 378,946,000. This does not include Egypt (which is distinctly under British rule), with a population 7,000,000. The grand total of territory peopled by those who speak our mother tongue (including America) is 16,210,000 square miles of land, with a population of 448,368,000 souls.
