A STRANGE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
A STRANGE STORY. A strange story, resembling remark ably the accounts of earlv bushranging exploits, comes from Bathurst. For some months miners and settlers at Palmer's, Oakey, and the vicinity have suffered severely irom the depredations of some man known as ' Slippery Jack,' often seen, but never captured. This man used to visit houses and tents left untenanted, strip them of their portable property, and retreat to a haunt in the mountains. All attempts to find his hiding place failed un'il Friday last, when a settler named William Hutcbinaon, whilst out on the ranges, reached the top of an almost inaccessible peak, looking down from which he noticed smoke curling up from a cavern far below. Cautiously de scending he noticed a little cleared plot of ground, on which was growing all sorts of vegetables. A breakwind carefully con structed of brushwood entirely concealed the place from ordinary view, and but for the op-curling smoke Hutchinson would never have found it. Thinking thi...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ALBURY BANNER. Sir,— Will yon please answer the following question :— If the children of a public school are in the habit of playing cricket, and one boy happens- to get a kneck from the ball, by accident, but does not get seriously hurt, can the tencher prevent the children from playing cricket any more 1 By answering the above you will oblige, SCHOOLBOY.

DEEP MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
DEEP MINING. The Minister for Mines, in his address to the Mining Conference, announced that, with the view of encouraging the development of our mineral resources at a greater depth than had been yet tried in this colony, he was of opinion that some assistance might well be given to those who succeeded first in obtaining payable gold at a greater depth than had been proved up to the present time. In Victoria payable gold had been discovered at a depth of 3000ft., whereas in New South Wales the greatest depth at which payable gold had been mined was 10±0ft. With the object of encouraging deep mining, Mr. SydneySmith has now ap proved of a reward of £1000 being offered for the discovery of payable gold at a depth of not less than 2000ft. The shaft may be perpendicular, or may follow the underlay, but the depth must be 2000ft. perpendicular. For the purpose of test ing the reef 250 tons of stone must be taken from it, at or below 2000ft., and crushed at a battery to be approved by the...
COOLGARDIE PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
CQOLGARDIE PROSPECTS. For weeks past the gold fields of the west have been attracting people by the thousand. No one finds fault with the spirit of enterprise which leads men to try their fortunes in another colony, but it may not be out of place to point out the conditions that exist in the place to which they are going. This task has fallen on the shoulders of Mr. W. Griffiths, ML A , who ia a keen observer, and who moreover has had practical ex perience cf more thau one gold field. He Bays nothing that would lead to the con clubion that in his opinion the fields will not prove both payable and permanent; but he states that there are thousands of men arriving at Albany every week bound for the gold centres of the west with no idea of permanent occupation when they reach their destination. ' Although at present,' ho Bays, ' there is a large demand for labor, I have very grave doubts whether the supply will not exceed the demand in the near future. Competent miners can undoubtedly g...

The capitalistic press would have jou be lieve this to be a working-man's paradise, and in view of the loud complaints made by those arriving, wbo declare they have been tricked and fooled, my coancil think it wisa to lay the real state of affairs, as ifc affects the workers, before our brothers of the eastern colonies. I, therefore, append a list of wages and e'-st of living in the different parts of the colony.

TRAGEDY AT ALBERT-PARK. A FATHER KILL} HIS CHILD. THEN SHOOTS HrMSELF. Another tragedy, strange in its details and almost unaccountable in point of motive, was brought under the notice of the police at Windsor on Tuesday. The 6csno of the crime was one of the broad walks of the Albert-park, at the rear of the St. Kilda cricket ground. There shortly before 2 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon a number of youths, who were amusing themselves play ing on one of the open spaces of the p*rk, noticed a man sauntering leisurely along tbe roadwav holding by the hand a little girl who was eating a slice of cake. A few momenta later they beard a pistol ehot, and turning ronnd th* youths saw the child fall, and ths man put a revolver to his head and fire a second shot While they hurried ccrosa to him he staggered and fell within a yard or two of the child. The. child lay quite still, and a gapinjr wound over the left temple from which tho brains protruded showed where she had bien struck by the bnlle...

COLLENDINA. WEDNESDAY, February 19. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
COLLENDINA. (PSOM OUB OWN COBBESPONDENT ) Wednesday, February 19. The dry weather, which has prevailed for so long a time, appears to have broken up. Last week, there was about an ljin. of rain in two days, which was followed by very sultry and oppressive weather until to-day, when a change took place, and about 80 paints of rain fell in a very short time. This will have a very good effect on the country, and there ia every prospect of good feed for stock for the coming autumn and winter. The harvest this year was a favor able one, both in regard to weather, returns, and prices, and the rain now will be most favorable to farmers to make a start for next year. A far greater quantity of land will be farmed this year on the Bhare system than hitherto. The Eupply of milk and cream to the Corowa Butter Factory had been falling off at an alarming rate owing to the drought, but now that things have changed the working of the factory for the coming winter is assured. Several young couples h...

RUTHERGLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
RUTHERGLEN. (KBOM OTJR OWN COBBESPONDENT.) The weather for the past week has been very hot and unhealthy. Typhoid fever has broken out amongst us, and two deaths have occurred — the eldest daughter of Mr W. Na9h and that of Mr. M'Carthy. Both young ladies were highly respected, and much sympathy is felt for their parents. The vintage has started and is turning out well. A large vintage is expected, acd the wines made Bhould be good as the berries are free from all diseases. The Horticultural Show was anything but a success. The results plainly show that sufficient interest is not taken in it by the people of the district. Extra energy was put in it by the officers for the purpose of placing the society in a better financial position, so that the outlook for Ihe Horticultural Show is not a very bright one. Mining is looking rather dull. The under ground men have all been ttopped at the Great Southern mine until the water slackens off This mine has been yielding 60,000 gallons of wate...
