Presbyterian Church. ANNIVERSARY SERVICES. The three services in connection with the above anniversary were conducted lest Sunday-toy fhe Min ister of the parish, the Rev. 'A. McWatt Allan, ? who, with - his officers, felt sorry that the date collided with Hospital Sunday, but alt their arrangements were made, we believe, about a month before the Hospital Committee made their announcement. In these circum stances they felt obliged to adhere to the time fixed, and they resolved to niatee a collection for the Hospital on a 'day next month to be decided on.. 'It- was feared that Hospital Sunday uiight militate somewhat against tht success of the Anniver sary Services, but, we are informed, they were all more successful in every way than those of any former year. This was most gratifying to all, but chiefly to the Minister, who felt much cheered by the large at tendances ait all the Services, par ticularly in the evening, wheusome could not find sitting room, though over a dozen large f...

Correspondence. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 18 October 1905
Correspondence. (to the EDiibn.) ? Sot, — In the report of the last meeting of the Progress^Committee, I notice the following — ' Letter not read by the Council..' I am of the opinion that if Sir. Wm. Lyne or any other person has any communication to be conveyed to the council, he should write direct, and not forward it to an obsolete body. As far as the municipality is concerned, I am the |person who gave 'Sir William Lyne the few slips' of paper which had been placed in my private box. I wrote some time ago to Sir Wm. Lyne re questing him to forward any corres pondence touching on municipal affairs direct to the Council Clerk. If he thinks fit to' do otherwise, I, wljile acting in the capacity of Mayor, will not entertain correspondence sent through Mr.'F. C.ftggin, or any other member of the Progress Com mittee. I think there is plenty of scope for their labors outside the municipal boundary, and it will be time enough to interfere with any matter inside that area when re quested...
Complicated Land Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 18 October 1905
Complicated Land Case. An action against the Crown, which has created a great deal of interest, was heard in the Supreme Court, before Aftting-Justice Fitz hardinge, at Deriiliquin. William Malone, a fanner, sued the Land Department for a refund of the monev uaid for four years' vent on an annual Lease on the Barhani holding. The circumstances 'leading to the present action are very com plicated. In 1900 a notice in the ' Government Gazette ' stated that the rent on certain occupied licenses on Barham had not been paid, and the licenses had lapsed. Conse quently the land became available for selection. Malone, his father, and two brothers applied for annual leases of the land, but the applica tions were refused by the local land board. On appeal the Court of Ap peal -directed the land board to con firm the Applications, and subse quently the Department issued annual leases. The following year Mr. O'Keefe, the owner of Barham, who maintained that the land was still . within his occup...

HOSPITAL SUNDAY. THE DEMONSTRATION A BRILLIANT SUCCESS. RECORD COLLECTION. The demonstration held iu the Cricket Grouud ou Sunday after noon was a brilliant success, the collection beiug a record one, amounting up to date to j£62 odd, which is a result that reflects the greatest credit upou tht uanaee nient and the willing hearts that assisted, while also being a magni ficent proof of the charitable dispo sition of our residents. The morning turned out rather uupropitious, aui as the threatening rains overshadowed the sky the prospects for the afternoon were very unpromising. About lunch time, however, it seemed as though the benificeut object of the day's proceedings had extended its refilling influence to the atmosphere itself, and the clouds drifted from the sky before the golden rays of the warm spring sunshine. The procession was a little late in starting from the old Oddfellows' Hall, but was a creditable turnout. Headed by the massed bands, the procession march ed straight do...

NELSON'S FAMOUS SIGNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 21 October 1905
NELSON'S FAMOUS SIGNAL. Echoes of .the incidents of the far famed sea-fight off Cape Trafalgar still reverberate in our ears to-day in the distant parts of the British dominions. Here in Victoria we have added pleasure in recalling these recollections, from the fact that two of our early residents were closely connected therewith. One was Captain Louttit, who hod been captain of the foretop on The Victory daring the battle. He subsequently came out to the colonies, engaged in the wasting trade, discovered Louttit Bay (which was named after him), then ulti mately became harbour pilot here, and died only a short while back. The other — Com- mander Crauford Fasco, R.N., a one-time police magistrate in this state, who died on February 18, 1898— was the sou of the signal-lieutenant on board Nelson's flag ship. We have, through the courtesy of two well-known Melbourne) citizens, been supplied with several interesting particul ars at first hand, concerning these links of association with t...

Country Telephones. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 21 October 1905
Country Telephones. New telephone regulations, in the direction of greater liberality, especi ally for country subscribers, have been framed. In certain country districts residents, particularly busi ness men, do not desire communica tion with the local exchange. They require direct communication with the trunk line. To meet these special cases the Postmaster-General (Mr. Chapman) has 'allowed, for a payment of £3 a year, communication with the nearest trunk line via the local post-office, provided the residence is not more thaa a mile from the post office. The Minister has also made regulations with regard to limited exchanges in the country. Under the ordinary regulations, there must be at least 15 subscribers before an exchange is established. There are many places in the country where 16 subscribers cannot be secured. Mr. Chapman has approved an arrange ment for limited exchanges, whereby if two or three persons require an exchange it may be provided at the post-office. A mile o...
