Small Debts Court. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
Small Debts Court. Only one case was called on in the Small Debts Court and, as the parties did not appear, it was struck out. The P.M. said he wanted to say a word or two, before they closed the Small Debts Court, in reference to an application by Mr. J. Hicks for ap pointment as Small Debts Court Bailiff. He understood that Mr, Hicks had last week been appointed by the local Bench of Magistrates, to the position for which he was now applying. Mr. Hicks, who was present in his official capacity as Small Debts Court Bailiff, stated that he understood that he had been appointed as District Court Bailiff and Court Keeper, as that was the position foi which he had ap plied. He had not previously applied for the position of Small Debts Court Bailiff. The P.M. stated that the local Bench had power only to appoint the Small Court Bailiff. The District Court Debts Bailiff would be appointed by the Judge. He therefore handed the application back to Mr. Hicks. In a recent '• Breach of] Promi...

Cable News. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
Cable News. The barque Oregon has arrived at Pio Janeiro, plague stricken. Twelve of the crew have died of the plague. An aagry debate took place in the House of Commons last week over the correspondence which has been pub lished in a Parliamentary Bluebook with regard to the British policy in China. Sir "William Harcourt, the leader of the Opposition, declared that the negotiations which had been called on had resulted in a series of triumphs for Russia. Sir Charles Dilke and Lord Charlos Beresford condemned the withdrawal of British warships from Port Arthur. Mr. A. J. Balfour, the loader of the Govern ment and Acting-Minister for Foreign Affairs, denied that there had been any abrogation of the Tientsin treaty as had been alleged. Great Britain had, without subscribing the Chinese loan of £16,000,000, obtair.ed nearly all it had hoped to secure through its agency. It was never intended that the British warships should remain at Port Arthur, and so far from Russia having achieved ...

For a couple of years there h ss been trouble brewing among the natives in Hokianga district and Bay of Plenty because of the the dog tnx.

A Bolter. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
A Bolter. An exciting chnse was witnessed in Scone on Saturday afternoon. A liorse attached to a tip-dray started off while the driver was putting the front and tail boards into position, and the reins not being within his reach he j umped from the cart and rushed to the horse's head and en deavored to stop it. The horse, how ever, had too much way on, and knocking the driver to one side rushed off along the Aberdeen road at top speed. On reaching the turn off road to Stewart's Brook the horse, to the surprise of all who were looking on, turned round sharp, without over turning the dray, though the wheels skidded some distance, and proceeded to make the pace towards Gundy. A gentleman who had hig horse in a smithy close by sprang into the saddle and gave chase. After covering about three-quarters of a mile the runaway was overtaken,'but it was not till more than another quarter of a mile had been travelled that a cap ture was effected.

The Difficulties of Democracy. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
The Difficulties of Democracy. In the bright speech which Mr. John Morley delivered at the Passmore Ed wards Settlement (says the Spectator), he let fall an obiter dictum which greatly interested us as politicians. It was only a remark that the United States is going beyond this country on the democratic road had not con quered, had, possibly rather exagger ated, her social difficulties; but we think we may gather from it that Mr. Morley, like most reflective Radicals of our time, is greatly impressed, it may be even appalled, by the increased difficulty of governing which the use of democracy as the grand instrument of government involves. If that is the case, we wish Mr. Morley, who, though a politician, has a detached mind, would help us all and interest us all by delivering a speech substantially upon that subject alone. It is becoming an urgent one, il only for two reasons. One is that the short list of statesmen who have the initiative in governing mankind feel this difficulty...

A Narrow Escape. Ox Thursday morning, as Mr. Thomas Hogan, of the Wyboug, was driving into town with a can of cream he bad a rather exciting experience. When coming down Overton Hill the back band of the harness gave way, the shafts dropped, and the horse made off. Mr. Hogan jumped out of the cart, but with great determination stuck to the reins, and when Sergeant Forrest and Mr. W. Ireland, (who witnessed the mishap from a few hun dred yards distance and at once gal loped up) arrived on the scene he had almost succeeded in bringing the horse to a standstill. The horse, how ever, had got broadside on to the cart, one of the shafts of which was under neath and the other behind the animal. With the aid of the gentlemen named matters were soon set right, and Mr. Ifoeran was able to proceed on his way. Little or no damage was done, j aad Mr. Hogan is to bo congratulated | on coming out of the ordeal un-! injured. I

Muswelllbrook Athletic Club. The Bpovts meeting to be held under the auspices of the above Club on the 24th of May (the programme of which appears in our advertising columns) should prove a success.
