AN IDIOSYNCRATIC POSTMASTER [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 11 May 1900

AN IDIOSYNCRATIC POSTMASTER Oub local postmaster is developing a devotion to duty which, if persistently cultivated, should Eland him in good stead when next he seeks proimtion. Neither this paper—(nor the Watch. under the same management)—was ever called upon to pay anything in the shape of a fine for insufficiently stamped or irregularly posted corres pondence ; but, since our issue of 27th ultimo, our postmaster has discovered several letters addressed to the Chro nidc upon which he has thought fit to impose a fine. We do not for one moment suggest that our recent stric tures on the crasB carelessness of the pos! master haa anything to do with the fuppenny.stamp fines, for no one would associate spite with the gentleman who has the control and responsibility of (lie colossal- trans actions of the Cobargo post office— and the Bermagui telephone. We quite believe the fines in which we were mulcted Rre perfectly legal; but the amount of money which has been lost to Lhe consolidated ...

SINGLE JUDGING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 18 May 1900

SINGLE JUDGING. It is encouraging to note that the su'jectof judging at shows ia being more critically discussed than was formerly the case, writes the Sydney Mail. At the official luncheon in connection with the Royal Show in Sydney, Mr. W. Kellett, of Queens lmd, a well known judge of horses, after expressing an opinion to the effect that the best horse had nob won in a leading clpss, plumped for single judging, and Eupported his opinion with some sound arguments. There can be no doubt that nearly all ex perienced wen believe in single judg ing. Unfortunately, (he present treble system is surrounded by such a lot of humbug, and'bolstered up with su.:h a vest deal of back scratching and favor, that it is impossible to get a fair heating for the cause of the Bingle expert system. It, is probably because the position of juflge is almost always honorary that the appointments are largely made by favor, and numbers of men are judging who are personally acquainted with every local intere...

THE FUTURE OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN REPUBLICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 18 May 1900

TEE FUTURE OF THE SOUTH AFBICAN KEPUBL1CS To restore internal independence to the Transvaal would, in fact, be a piece of insanity, and one which we do not for a moment believe the Ministry contemplates. Suppose, for the mo ment, that Great Britain decided to give again to the Boera their inde pendence, it could only be on the express condition of absolutely equal treatment of all white inhabitants. All Ouclanders who had settled in the Transvaal up to 1895 would get the franchise. The result would be the immediate swamping of the Boer vote —aud not improbably the lot of the Boers would be worse than if the ■country had been made a British colony. There seems, in truth, but one possible ending to the question, and in view of that fact it may be pointed out how unlikely to happen are the evils predicted as bound to follow annexation by England. In! the first place, it is said that.the Transvaal would become .a second Ire land. This is, grotesquely untrue.* Conceivably the Orange' Fre...

WESTMINSTER'S WEALTH- ] It is cruious that tho two richest men in England and America should Lave pasFfd away within six months ot one another. Last.July news came of the -death of the head of the Yanderbilts . villi Christmas that of the Duke of Westminster. Though not to be com pared 'with tbe wealth of the great; American, (be fortune of the Duke was decidedly tbe largest ever pos-, sessed by an Englishman, and sreing that it practically all goes to one pnraoD, which Varidevbilt'a didn't, it is pofsible that the heir may claim to having Inherited tbe IargeBt fortune ever bequeathed a eiuglo individual in the history cf I he world. The exact amount of the Westminster money it is, of course, impossible to estimate, as so much is represented in lasd and houses ; but at the time of the intro duction of the-Death Duties, the old Duke complained that his heir would have to pay half a million, thus reveal ing the fact that he was at least worth £16,500,000.

ENGLAND NO MORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 18 May 1900

ENGLAND''HO MOKE The popularity of the idea of breaking up the British' Empire in Parisian circles has been amply illustrated by i lie fate attending the special number of the 'Monde. Illustre," entitled the "Ang!o-Franco-Russian War." This brochure went 'off like hot cakes, and in a couple of days 'tis said over half a million copies were disposed of in Paris and environs alone.

THE MONARO CAPITAL LEAGUE Visit of Delegates to Bega, [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 18 May 1900

TEE MONAKO CAPITAL LEAGUE* Visit of Delegates to Bega, The Bombala delegates from the Monaro Capital League vbited Bega on the 11th instant and had a suc cessful meeting. The Mayor (Mr Bland) presided, and, as usual, spoke wisely and to the point. He owned up that Bega was apathetic in most matters, and that generally if they ■ didn't see a profit looming up they wouldn't pay. Bega is not alone in this respect. .Apart from the national 'aspect of the question, Mr. Bland pointed out how Bega would be ma.. teri&lly benefited if the Federal Capital were located at Monaro.' Even if it cost £50,000 he thought it would be a good investment. Mr. Jones, of Bombala, spoke at length. He was certain they would get the capital, and he had certain information which he v?&s unable to divulge at) present. But they could not expect Bombala to bear all the expense. They had already spent) £70, and now proposed to issue an illustrated pamphlet, giving photographs of the scenery and &a...

BLUNDERING GATACRE. (From Hie D.T.'s Cape Correspondent) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 18 May 1900

BLUNDERING GATACIE. (From Hie D.T.'s Cape Correspondent) Let me turn for a moment to one aspect of politics in South Africa at the present time—to what I may call the politics of the army. All the world knows that while the soldier in the ranks has shed his blood freely for Queen and country, and has shown himself a man competent in -the highest degree, the same compliment cannot be paid to many of the superior officers who have been placed in posi tions of command to lead men to battle. The wonder to many is that Lord Roberts should not long ere this have removed several of tbeBe generals from their posts. Such terrible blun dera as those at Stromberg, at Magers fontein, at Saunah's Post, and at Redesberg, exposed what must always be called criminal incapacity on the part of the leaders of the British army. To a man of Lord Roberts' humane and magnanimous temperament, it must hare been extremely painful to deal with men who were responsible for these calamities, which, -apart from ...

[ LOCAL AND GSNEML NEWS- | Penjob Constable Kellv recently had occasion to visit Victoria to identify a prisoner who was wanted here Cor several swindles ob residents in Cobargo. He (the Senior-Con stable) left here on Wednesday the 2ad instant, went as far as Geelong, and notwithstanding an enforced day's delay at Gotilburn, he had returned home by the following Wednesday with his man—just one week away. At the police court on Friday last before Messrs. H. Street and D. Tar ton Js.

The plaintiff lives abqut 300 yatds from the temple of justice, and was absent from his busi ness about half an hour—pretty good pay, but apparently the law permits it.
