A CLOSE SEASON FOR FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
A CLOSE SEASON FOR FISH. Communications have recently passed between the Governments of New South Wales and Victoria with reference to the way in which the Murray is being deple ted- of its fish, and as most of the fish come to Victoria the Customs Depart ment has been urged to take some pro tective action. Victoria having no juris diction over the river itee'f a technical difficulty has been presented, but it is proposed to get , over it by making a close season for the fish found in the Murray, which will have the effect of preventing their disposal within the colony during the period fixed. A notification has therefore been inserted in the Victorian Government Gazette that at the expiration of a month a proclamation will be issued ' prohibiting the taking of Murray cod, Murray perch, and Murray bream in Victoria during the months of September, October, and November in each year.'

A BETHANGA GRIEVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
A BETHANCA GRIEVANCE. Great astonishment and indignation has been caused at Bethanga by the announcement that the Postal Depart ment intenda to substitute a tri- weekly mail for the daily mail now running to that place. The mail is carried from the railway station to Bethanga, a distance of under six miles, by coach, and has been so for 18 or 19 years, and now, to save a few pounds, the whole district is to be inconvenienced. The matter is of inter est, not al me to Bethanga, but to other places a* well, for outside towns, even Talgarno, find the daily service to Be thanga a benefit. If- la regarded as a very strango thing that the present time has been chosen tor the alteration, as the township is rapidly improving, in foct daring the last two years the population has nearly doubled, and increasing every month, consequent on the mining pro perty being now developed by English 1 capital. The mines are now proving pay able, large works and new machinery are. now in course of erection...

- RETRENGHPW IH THE CIVIL SERVICE. : During the week the Public Service ' Board' has been directing its attention to the Department of Works.

Mr. Barling, having been Underr Secretary of the Department of Works, and having been instrumental in carrying out large economies there, prefers to allow his fellow-commissioners to draw their own conclusions from: what they s?e, and is therefore not taking part in their investi gations.

MINING NEAR TAMWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
tmmm Mr tamworth. . ~A nice lot of gold, amounting to 249oz. 17dwt. 10gr., was (writes the Tamworth ' News) brought into town from the Lone Hand claim, situated about half-way between Hanging Bock and Nundle* and owned .half by Mr. John Deegan and the remaining two quarters by Messrs. Tobias Eyan- and Martin Isaacson. The claim, which is on the line of the old Brown Snake, has been worked for the last three years by Messrs. Eyan arid Deegan, who nave made a good living out of it all that time, whilst Mr. Isaacson bought into it about twelve months ago. The quality tof the stone being obtained at the present time may be gauged from the fact that the 250oz. of gold referred to were got but of about lcwt. of stone, whilst 177oz. of it came out of 251b. of stone. The Bhaft, which is situated at the bottom of a gorge, is down about 70ft., which goes to Bhow that the gold is to be found at a good depth. The future prospects of the claim are considered to be very promising.

A DANGEROUS PARCEL. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
A DANGEROUS PARCEL. Ifc ia not generally known (says thd ? . Western Agriculturist) that the phosphor ous used ordinarily for mixing with wheat or pollard for rabbit destruction is a ver;flj -'''?? dangerous combustible. This rwas exem . *plifi d on Wednesday when Mr. L. B. . -Stodart and Mrs. Stodart had a narrow ©scape from suffering most painful^ if not 'dangerous, injuries. Mr. and Mrs. Stodart were driving from Hamilton along the Macarthur road on their return ' .' ' -journey. In the buggy there was a small parcel of phosphorus, which Mr. Stodart intended to use for mixing: with pollard to poison rabbits on his. estate. When about five miles Hamilton, Mrs. Stodart noticed that smoke was rising from the floor of the buggy. Instantly recognising that the .phosphorus must have caused the .-fire, she seized the package and threw, it out on the road, while Mr. Stodart stopped the horses. Despite the, prompt action of Mrs. Stodart, her dress was .burned to some extent, aa was also Mr...

A SKULL FOUND. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
A SKULL FOUND. A singular discovery, which recalls to mind tbe sensations which were created a year or so ago by the discovery of the head of a man, and some time previously a pair of human legs at South Yarra, waa made at Port Melbourne on Friday last, when one of the employes of Messrs. Kitchen and Sons, of Inglea-atreet, rorb Melbourne, in turning out tbe contents of some bags of bones jsvhioh had been pur chased by the firm, came across a humau skull. The Bkull is considered to have belonged to a woman. It is evidently that of an adult, for the back teeth are large and well formed. There is a mark across the left side of the skull aa if ifc had sustained a fracture; but it is pro bable that the injury was received Boine time before death, because the bone had partially knitted. The bag of bonea con taining the skull waa purchased from Messrs. Morria and Ludwick, general dealers, of Malvern-road, Prahran, but so far the police have not been able to learn from whom Messrs.

A NEWSPAPER PLAINT. A Mudgee journal has the following plaint -.—We're full !— not of Jimmy Hen nessy, Young and Ferrier, or any other brand of fermented or spirituous liquors, but of a few of our long-winded sub scribers. During the past fortnight there waa a merry-go-round in town, and ' night after night we eaw people and their families going for threepenny rides on a wooden horse who . have. QW.ed ua money not only for quarters but years now. We are not so hard-hearted as to begrudge our fellow-beings a little merri ment, but what we objeefcis this : InBup- / plying them with our paper we amuse, interest, and instruct, yet when we ask for money they plead poverty, and relate such tales of distress that we teel more like giving them a crown than pressing for the payment of a shilling. A merry go-round, a circus, or a theatrical com pany comes along, which amuses only, and those very people who can't pa? us can find ready money night after night to attend the travelling attraction...

A DESIGN FOR TRAIN WRECKING. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
k DESIGN FOR TRAIN WRECKING. Inspector Anderson has in hia posses sion a contrivance to derail a train that waa found on the bead of a high bank on the up line a mile from Macedon^ on Saturday last. Ganger Cumpy noticed it in walking the line, but thought it wa« timber that had dropped off in transit, and took, no notice. In returning he turned it over and found a plan. This with the timber was sent to Macedon, and on Sunday the stationmaoter, in look ing at the plan, discovered its use. It consists of 4-inch blocks in three portions. That on one end has been brought to a feather point, gradually running out to the full width of the timber. Slots were cut to allow it being slipped into the chairs. The other portion is a plank 1-J-in. thick, which is to be placed on tha opposite rail, taking the wheel up, and evidently when on it would slip and throw the train off. It ha9 been made roughly with a blunt axe and saw, but would have effected its purpose without doubt. A camp was discove...

TUMBARUMBA. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 21 February 1896
TUMBARUMBA. Cfbom otxb own cobbespondent.) The late squabble in the police ranks has had a rather unsatisfactory and unexpected result. The next time the police are compelled to take charge of a sick man I reckon he will go off to the nearest hospital regardless of Government expense and without mnch ceremony either. Mounted-constable Allen has been dismissed, and a few of his friends intend giving him a testimonial prior to his departure. Constable ZyliniBki, in being removed to Wagga, has come off a little lighter. He has been a sound' reliable officer, and during his stay in Turn* barumba has earned the respect and goodwill o^ the law-abiding portion of the community, but the law-defying element naturally take the oppo site view, and the wonder is how the superior officers fail to see matters in their true position and thus play fair into the hands of the enemy. From what I hear it is very probable the lest has not been heard of the matter, but what is the use of talking candidly...
