Law Report. Police Court. MONDAY. Before the Police Magistrate and   Mr. P. Mathews, J.P. Edward Barrass, charged with steal- ing a bicycle, the property of Hilton Goold, was remanded till Tuesday morning. William Hunt answered to his bail   on a charge of assaulting Constable Apps the previous Saturday night. Mr Hogan appeared for the defendant and announced that he would plead guilty. Mr Hogan said his client had been long resident in Cobar, and regretted having in the heat of passion struck Constable Apps, who had pro- voked him by singling him out for riding a bicycle without a light. The police and the sergeant had an edge on Mr Hunt who had taken a prominent part in getting Mr Crick up to defend a recent case. The Polica Magistrate hoped no officer would have a down on a man simply for getting a solicitor up to un- dertake a defence. The Sergeant : Certainly not. After argument on both sides the Bench decided to accept Mr Hunt's plea of guilty, and im...

Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 18 February 1899

Topics of the Week. The Cobar ratepayers said 'water '   last Saturday, and said it with some emphasis. The facts that the reservoir is getting very low, and that the water trickles so slowly out of the stand pipe that one man had to wait two hours on Wednesday to get a chance to fill   his water cart, indicate the approach of a grave crisis which Heaven alone can avert and against a recurrence of which this community should be pre- pared. The telling speech of ex-Mayor   James on Wednesday night, showing how handsomely a fifteen penny water rate would pay and what it would do, was a masterly deliverance in the right vein, and at the right time. Good feeling prevails amongst all the alder- men on the matter; they differ only as to ways and means. We have also once more a mayor with a distinct practical programme, and as regards   water and other matters we hope to see the century's end a progressive era in the history of Cobar. &am...

Nymagee. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 18 February 1899

Nymagee. (From our Correspondent.) Tho weather here continues to keep intensely hot, and the same cry still exists for rain. Everything is parched, and the grass withered away for many miles. The copper mine is going in full swing once again while the water from the last drop of rain lasts. The Nymagee Gun Club have de- cided to hold a pigeon match on Saturday, Feb 18. Nominations are rolling in rapidly, a good afternoon's sport is looked forward to, and some     close shooting is expected.     The rain, that fell two or three   weeks ago put 10ft 9in of water in two mine tanks. It does not take much of a fall to keep us going. In the case against the young man     Walter Hyland, who was committed for trial, the Attorney-General has de- clined to file a bill, much to the satis- faction of the townspeople.

Gilgunnia. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 18 February 1899

Gilgunnia. (From our own Correspondent.) On Fridaylast tbe P.M. put in     appearance for the first time since the New Year; in fact his services had not been required for about 4 months. There were only a few Small Debt cases to be disposed of, which are of no general interest. In mining, matters are at about the same. The Dream is busy raising stone for crushing. On this claim they have sunk a new shaft near their southern boundary and struck a small reef averaging from 3 to 6 inches about, and when dollied showing prospects, which should give about 1oz per ton at the battery. The new shaft at the Hidden Treasure is down now about 90 feet, and according to indications the reef should be struck shortly. The Off Chance is still busy putting in the cross-cut east. The Parcombe prospectors are doing a lot of prospecting and raising stone. At the Four Mile the prospectors are driving along the reef with the view of connecting their working shaft with the one e...

ALD. SNELSON ELECTED MAYOR. EX-MAYOR JAMES ON WATER   SUPPLY. The Council met on Wednesday even-   ing when there was a full attendance and Ex-Mayor James moved and Ald Duffy seconded the election of Ald Snelson as Mayor for the ensuing tear. The new Mayor, who was unanimously elected, in acknowledging his election, mapped out a programme which he hoped and be- lieved the Aldermen would help him to carry out, including the water supply, the adjustment of contententious matters relative to lighting, street improvements, tree planting. fencing of the common, proposed division of municipalities, etc.   Alderman James gave a brilliant review of the past year's work and a sketch of what could be effected in the way of a town water supply, on a 15d lighting rate. The speech was far too valuable to be condensed into the limits at our dis- posal today and we shall give it in ex tenso in next issue; together with the   Council Clerk's repor...

MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 18 February 1899

MINING. Mr J. M. Scott, mining broker, Co- bar, reports : — Quiet week in the share market. Occidentals have receded several pence, and good parcels have been offered at receding rates, without inducing buyer's to operate ; the cause of this is solely attributable to the continued drought. Young Austra-   lians had a bit of a flutter, and were sold up to 4s, but are now quiet, with sellers considerably below this ; other stocks remain neglected. Attention directed to the Warden's report on page 4.         The Crown of the Peak Syndicate is about to be formed into a No Lia- bility Co. ; the shares in the new company will be under-written by the syndicate holders.
