—THE— Muswellbrook Chronicle O, sacred weapon, left for truth's defence, Sole dread of folly, vice and insolence. Reverent we touch thee! but with honest zeal To rouse the henchman of the public weal WEDNESDAY, JAN. 12, 1898. LOCAL AND GENERAL. NEWS. The Escaped Prisoner. A paragraph appearing in one of our-contemporaries makes it appear that the fugitive Stewart escaped from Singleton lockup, not, Muswellbrook. This comes of the Singleton correspond- &nbsp; dent of the Sydney, dailies, telegraphing Muswellbrook items as Singleton news. If the local correspondent of the afore- said dailies kept this town more prom- inent before readers thereof, there would be no occasion for the Singleton man to send misleading wires. &nbsp; Some highly coloured statements that have been made in reference to the re- fugee, to put it mildly, lack confirma- tion. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
The Weather. THE weather during the past few &nbsp; days has been cool and pleasant for the time of year, which is doubtless due to rain on the coast and the east- erly breeze blowing. The favorable weather recently experienced in this district has produced a splendid growth of grass and stock are rapidly putting on condition. The milk suppljy to the creameries has also largely increased.

Mr. P. W. Tewksbury. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We are informed that our respected townsman, Mr. P. W. Tewksbury, of the local jewellery and bicycle em- porium is going away for a holiday trip, too, close attention to business having affected his health. We trust that he will have a pleasant time, and return thoroughly restored to health at the end of his holidays. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
Civilian Rifle Club. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
Civilian Rifle Club. THE first stage of the current quar- &nbsp; ter's prize shooting of the above Club will be shot off on the rifle range on Saturday next, 15th instant, at 400 &nbsp; and 500 yards ranges. The prizes will be of the usual value. In conse- quence of the butts being so frequently required by the Volunteers, the Civilians were unable to have any prize shooting last quarter.
Aldermanic Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
Aldermanic Elections. &nbsp; Not much interest appears to be taken in the annual municipal election which takes place next month. The retiring members of the Council are &nbsp; Aldermen Bowman (Mayor), Skinner, and Lea, and it is probable that they will seek re election. The names of a couple of other townsmen are men- tioned as probable candidates, so that it is likely there will be a contest for the seats. &nbsp;
The' Rey. W. Marshall. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
The Rev. W. Marshall. &nbsp; The Rev. W. Marshall, who for many years was in charge of St. Paul's parish, Murrurundi, has taken up his residence in Muswellbrook, in order to be near a number of old friends and to benefit his health. Mr. Marshall retired from the Murrurundi parish in consequence of failing health and increasing age. During his long resi- dence there he did more than any other resident to improve the appearance of Murrurundi and advance its interests, whilst still working with much zeal and success for his church. His friends there—and they are legion—all wish that his declining years may be peace- fully and happily passed in the com- panionship of old and trusted friends.
Collecting Returns. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
Collecting Returns. &nbsp; THE local police are now collecting information with reference to the occu- pation of lands in this district. This year the collectors have been provided with forms which, when filled up, &nbsp; should afford the most complete and reliable information as to the area of each holding, the acreage under culti- &nbsp; vation, the kind of crops raised and the yield, the numbers and kinds of stock kept, etc. If theso returns are carefully and honestly compiled throughout the country they must prove invaluable for, statistical pur- poses. &nbsp;
The Coming Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
The Coming Show. WHEN MR. O'Callaghan, dairy &nbsp; export was in Muswellbrook a few weeks ago he intimated to the Com- mittee of the Upper Hunter P. and A. Association that the Department of agriculture would offer a prize of £3 for ???? cow on the ground, and &nbsp; &nbsp; would supplement the amount with &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; £1 for a second prize. Accordingly, tbo prizo was inserted in the schedule &nbsp; as class 93. Since the schedule of prizes was printed, however, the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Secretary (Mr. J. C. Luscombe) has been informed that the Department declines to offer the prize. This refusal of the Department to make good the promise of its officer for so small a sum savours of meanness.
Muswellbrook Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
Muswellbrook Hospital. The monthly meeting of the local &nbsp; Hospital and Benevolent Society was held at that institution on Tuesday afternoon last. There were present: &nbsp; Messrs. E. T. Keys (in the chair), Bud- den, Healy, Tewksbury, Adams (hon. &nbsp; sec.) and Dr. Wilson. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed, and accounts amounting to £20 15s 11d passed for payment.

Healy and Budden.— Contributors are reminded that the annual meeting will take place on Tuesday evening next, when it is desired that there will be a large, attendance. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
The Convant High School. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
The Convent High School. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; AN advertisement in another part of this paper announces that the Mus- &nbsp; wellbrook Convent High School will &nbsp; re-open, after the Christmas holidays, on Monday, January 17th. The &nbsp; curriculum of the school, described in detail, shows that facilities for obtain- ing a high-class education are now given children resident in the town and district. The Sisters. of Mercy have proved themselves to be efficient teachers, and a perusal of the adver- tisement referred to will show that their pupils receive careful training in accomplishments and all useful branches of knowledge, thereby having the advantages of a comprehensive education. &nbsp; &nbsp;
Police Court. TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1898. (Before the P.M., and Messrs. C. E. Doyle, T. Sponcer, E. C. Brecht, R. T. 'Keys, C. H. Cox, and E. Bowman, J's.P.) [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
Police Court. TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1898 (Before the P.M. and Messrs. C. E. Doyle, T. Spencer, E. C. Brecht, R. T. Keys, C.H. Cox, and E. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Bowman, J's.P.) Constable Percy Harrison appeared to answer a charge that he did, on the 20th December, negligently allow a prisoner, named William Stewart, to escape Mr. M'Intyre appeared for the de- &nbsp; &nbsp; fendant, who pleaded not guilty. Senior-Sergeant Forrest deposed: I heard the information read, it is true, and the defendant now before the court is the person referral to ; on Saturday night, 18th of last month, I instructed Constable Harrison, with Constable Breen, to arrest n man who was wanted on a charge of breaking, entering, and stealing from a dwelling at Denman ; he afterwards reported to me that he had arrested the man ; on the Monday following I was at Den- man, and received a telegram from Constable Harrison, which stated that a man named Stewart had escaped from t...
The Sulphide Works. More Capital Necessary. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898
The Sulphide Works. More Capital Necessary. GRAVE rumors have been afloat for some time to the effect that the Sul- phide Corporation extensive works at Cockle Creek have not been proving as great a success as could be desired. After having expended about half a million of money, the Australian directors came to the conclusion that the electrolysis department, devoted to the extraction of zinc, and which was &nbsp; under the supervision of Mr. E. Ash- croft would have to be closed down. This has been done, and Mr. Ashcroft in explanation says that he has no hesitation in making the admission that the financial position of affairs has caused him considerable apprehension. The original, vendors and he took shares in payment of the patents instead of £500,000 cash. Prior to the erection of the Cockle Creek works £20,000 was spent by the original vendors in estab- lishing works at Gray's, Essex, in England, and a six months right of purchase of the Broken Hill mine. For the purc...
