When I Baw that 1 said to myself, ' I'll be hanged if I'll take any such risk as that.' So I wont two doors further and saw another plate with ' Dr. Y.,' and below it '3 to 5.' The odds were shorter, and I went to him.'
Strange Railway Accident. A Carriage Axle Breaks. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 April 1898
i Strange Railway Accident. - %'L Carriage Axle Breaks. „.The Tamworth mail train which left Newcastle Station at 6 o'clock on Monday evening, and which should have reached the Metropolis at g.45 p.m., was delayed for two hours owing to a Ftrange accident which occurred while the train was passing Ryde. Some of the passengers state that they noticed a peculiar oscillation in the second carriage from the engine shortly after leaving Hornsby '; others say that it was noticeable before Hornsby was reached. No particular notice was taken of the incident, however, until, passing through a cutting between Eastwood and Ryde, the axle snapped. Revolving at a terrific speed, one broken end ripped away that part of the carriage floor immediately above it, and struck the foot of a man sitting near by, which was crushed very much, the leg being also severely in jured. Dr. Lee bandaged up ths in jured limb as well as possible, but it was considered likely that amputation would have to be carried...

How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 April 1898
How to Help the Local Paper. You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local paper your general printing; if you do not feel able to run I gn advertisement, surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps to pay the thousand and one free no tices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The time may come when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from the subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore ,if you want a good newspaper—one that will still help your town—give it all your printing.

Cricket. I Zingari v. Robertson Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 April 1898
Cricket. I Zingari y. Robertson Asso ciation. What may now be fairly regarded as an annual cricket fixture for the Easter holidays here is a match be tween teams representing the I Zingari Metropolitan Club and the Robertson Cricket Association, the match which was played on the local Show Ground on Saturday last beingthe second of the series. The day was a delightful one for cricket, being bright and not too warm. It was understood that play would commence at 10 o'clock and the visitors were all on the ground within a few minutes of that hour; but owing to defections from the Association's selected team it was after u o'clock before a start could be made. Lipscomb was chosen cap tain of the local men while Percy Charlton led the visitors and the spin of the coin having favored the latter they decided upon going to the wickets. Lipscomb led his men into the field, where they were quickly followed by \V. A. Richardspn and S. R. Walford, with Messrs. Isaacs and C. J. Spratt as umpires...
The Constitution Bill. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 April 1898
The Constitution Bill. Mr. Walter Edmunds, barristor, delivered nil address in the local School of Arts, on Tuesday uiglit, on the Federal Constitution Bill. The attendance was small, which is to be accounted for by the fact that, as no announcement had been made locallj' of Mr. Edmunds's visit very few people, except tlioso apprised bj' the bellman late in the evening, knew anything about it. Tho Mayor, Mr. E. C, Brecht, hav ing been called upon lo take the chair, explained that owing to" his being away from town for sevoral days, 'he did not receive letters from the Seci'e tnry of tho Foderal Association in Sydney, advising him of Mr. Ed munds's visit' until his roturu that morning, so that lie had no oppor tunity to give the matter, proper : pub licity,, and this accoun'.ed-for tho small number present. lie had much pleasuro in introducing Mr. Edmunds to the mooting.'

Singleton Electorate v. Robertson Electorate. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 April 1898
Singleton Electorate v. Robertson Electorate. A rather weak team was sent to represent Singleton Electorate in the return match with Robertson Electorate played on the local Show Ground on Easter Monday, and although Robert son was not represented by anything like its full strength it proved more than a match for the visitors in all depart ments of the game, which was a very one-sided one. Again it was consider ably after the hour arranged to com mence play before the local men were ready, although the visitors were upon the ground in good time. This dila toriness is not right, and players—(this remark applies more particularly to town residents)—should show a little more alacrity in getting to the ground at the time appointed to commence play, as it is not right to treat visiting teams in such careless fashion. Garn sey captained the home team, and the veteran T. A. Fawcett (who was a good cricketer in the seventies) had charge of the visitors, who were two men short, a .id had to ...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. Sydney, Tuesday. Mr. Charles Collins, the member for Nar rabri, died suddenly at Tain worth, of ■appo plexy, this morning. London, Wednesday. The Spanish Cabinet has decided that the attitude of intervention in Cuba adopted by America is incompatible with Spanish sov ereign rights. It does not admit of foreign interference in the internal affairs of Cuba. It is added in an official note, however, that Spain does not intend to take action unless America resorts to coercion. The conscious ness of the right, the noto says, gives the Government serenity to watch over and do fond the sacred interests of the Spanish race. London, Thuisdny. Lady Jleux has purchased Kelso's horso Survivor, which recently arrived in London from Sydney, for 2000 guineas. , Don Carlos has issued a manifesto in which he states that the Spanish Government will prove themselves traitors if, from fear of war, they permit the loss of Cuba.

A Suspicious Death. - * Murder Suspected. Circumstances have arisen in connec tion with the death of James Reeves, of Grattan, Mudgee, on Thursday last, creating a strong suspicion that he was murdered.

The Majority for Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 April 1898
The Majority for Federation. There has been some local discussion about what is meant by the require ment of the Federation Enabling Act Amending Act, that a majority of at least 80,000 electors is needed to carry the Federal Draft Constitution, The same question we see has arisen in the metropolis. Some people seem to think that if So,001 electors vote "yes" the bill will be carried, even if 90,000 electors vote " no." That is not so at all; there must be over 80,000 affirma tive votes to carry the bill; but even 100,000 or any greater number of affirmative votes would not avail if there were say 105,000 or more nega tive votes. -A majority of the votes polled either way will prevail on one condition. For, in order that the af firmative majority shall represent a reasonable number of the electors, the law stipulates that unless 80,000 or 1 over vote " yes" the bill shall be deemed rejected, One vote more than 80,000 would carry it, if the negative votes totalled only 8o,ooo, and 80...

Great Soudan Battle. General Kitchener, Sirdar of the Anglo-Egyptain army, with 13,000 troops, 24 guns, and 12 maxims, after a weary night's march conducted in perfect silence, halted about a quarter of a mile from the camp of Mahmoud, the Dervish Commander-in-chief, on Friday nt dawn. Fourteen thousand Dervishes were seen behind a great zariba or fortification, which was con cealed in a labyrinth of earthworks and trenches. A fierce bombardment was opened i by the Anglo-Egyptian artillery upon the fortifications, earthworks, and trenchcs, and after the firing had been kept up for some time the zariba was utterly destroyed and many of its occupants killed. Three companies of Cameron and Seaforth Highlanders then led a brilliantly dashing assault in face of a perfect hail of lead, with their pipers playing at their head as tbny charged. The Highlanders carried the camp at the point of the bayonet without a check. The Dervishes exhibited great gal lantry, and lost over 2000 men,, and ...
