INTERCOLONIAL. New South Wales. THE RAINFALL. SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE SYDNEY WATERWORKS. Sydney, February 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 25 February 1898
■ 1 1 - ! INTERCOLONIAL. j STew South Wales. THE RAINFALL. SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE SYDNEY WATERWORKS. Sydney, February 17. Telegraphic communication has been restored, and reports show that the rainfall extended all over the colony. The South coast received the greatest share. At Camden, flood water, which rose 27 feet above the branch railway bridge, is subsiding. The outlying districts report heavy losses of stock, and at Kirk ham estate, several brood mares and foals were drowned. The most serious news is that of the heavy flood waters in the 'Kepean river. A wave burst the cataract dam at the head of the Sydney Water Supply Works, which was very substantial, but the waters rose rapidly, rushing 16 feet over the dam, when it began to give ouly five feet of structure at either end of the dam, which is now left. This accident will not interfere with the Sydney water supply.

A REMARKABLE FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 25 February 1898
A REMARKABLE FRAUD. A sensation has been caused in Sydney by disclosures which indicate an extensive fraud, perpetrated on a number of citizens, in connection with what is known as the Atmospheric Gas Company. On January 13th the patent was applied for by George Washington Lee, Frank Elliott, and George T&thani, who declared the nature of their invention to be a process and an apparatus for the manufacture of inflamatory gas and composition materials used therein. The syndicate formed shares, which were put on the "market, at £10 each. The experiment was conducted with such astuteness, that the alleged invention was received with enthusiastic endoisetuent, with the result that shares rose to £70. A sudden disappearance of Lee chadded the shareholder's dreams, and Lee's defection, followed by Elliott's investigations, disclosed a remarkable fraud. Warrants were issued for the arrest of the alleged iuventors.
A FATAL ACCIDENT. Sydney, February 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 25 February 1898
A FATAL ACCIDENT.. Sydney, February 22. A sensational accident happened at St. Mary's Cathedral, which unfortunately, was attended with fatal results. Some time past the workmen employed in Wilding the tower to top the Cathedral, had the materials for their use swung up by means of a crane to a distance of., 120 feet. The work was carried on without accident, but this morning the coupling cage, employed to carry the material to the scaffolding aloft, collapsed when it reached the height of seventy feet. Two men were riding in the cage at the time, and they, with bricks, stonc4 and mortar; were precipitated in a confused mass to the ground. One man named laeslie, was killed instantly, but the second man, J>rory, escaped with a broken leg and severe contusions and cuts about the face and body. It is thought that he will live. It is somewhat remarkable that Drury was badly injured some months ago when working at the new markets in George street.

PUBLIC MEETING AT MARBLE BAR. j RE - CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. [ On Wednesday evening last, a large number of townspeople congregated at I TattersaU's rooms, the occasion being i the holding of a public meeting, which ! was called for the purpose of forming a new Progress Association, and discussing several important public matters concerning the district. It must be admitted that through the untiring efforts and energy of the Progress Associations in the past, the Pilbarra district has received very fair treatment at the hands of the Government, and the formation of the new Association, received enthusiastic support from all present. There is no doubt, that such a body is necessary for the district in more ways than one, and without it, the goldmining industry together with the interests of the people as well as the district, would not be properly represented. With the reformation of this Association, it is to he hoped that every member enrolled, will take an active...

It is believed Horia had induced her to decide to go with hiin to Balla Balldr but for ."^Mue reason, which has nofctranspired, the damsel revoked her promise; This infuriated Horia to sucfir an extent, that ia sheer d> speration, he drew forth a pocket knife w ith a blade at each end, and openin...
