f Boxing. MgJNABB BEATS FLEMING. T-ne best fight ever fallen to the lot of lovers of fisticuffs to witness in C 'essnock, was the result of the meuting of Billy McNabb (Weston) and! Maurice Fleming (Sydney), at ''the Cessnock Stadium last Friday nig it. From the bell, the excitement wafc at its height, and the first five roiinds were fought toe to toe. At the onset Fleming was a slight favorite, but now McNabb's sup porters were pronounced. This style of jighting was particularly suitable to ilcNabb, and he had the best of the exchanges. For the next five rounds Fleming stood off and boxed his aggressive opponent, and showed to advantage. McNabb realised he lia.1' to get in and fight, and some rn^re of those rare exchanges fol - -lowed.

Griffen, of New York, was on September 3rd trapped underneath his new car, ? which had capsized in the street, and roasted to death through the gasolene tank exploding. His companion, John Pie, a dealer in motor cars, was horribly burned when resc ued, and «his- recovery is doubtful. According1 to spectators of the trage gy, Pie was struggling- for' possession of the steering wheel, which was held by Griffen, when the car, going at a high speed, suddenly swerved, crashed into, an electric light post and over turned. Griffen was an amateur drivci and it is beleived that Pie, realising accident was to be avoided, endeavour that he must try to run the car if an ed to force his companion to give up the seat. . Griffen apparently resented the in terference, and a struggle ensued, which resulted in the accident. Pie managed to crawl from beneath the car, but. his clothing- was so much a blaze, tha...

CESSNOCK RACES. The Cessnock Jockey Club't No vember mrcting was brought off last Wednesday under very favourable conditions. The weather was ideal, and the meeting passed off without a hitch. A hig crowd of visitors came from Newcastle, and Maitland con tributed lately to the gathering. As is usually the case the local patron age was comparatively small, but the fact that tho mines were working j accounted for this. The Paddock showed jin* increase in revenue, but the Leser fell off slightly. Horse owners jiatronised the fixture in a liberal n aimer, with the result that out of th i total entry only six horses did not face the barrier.- This fact shows that the club is popular among i;s patrons. The stipendiary stewards were present but their duties wjre very light. The course was in 'good racing order, and aito gether, 'he. day's racing was' most enjoyable.

Congestion in the Coal Traffic. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 19 December 1913

Congestion in the Coal Traffic.                             Something must be done to relieve the state of congestion existing at Newcastle in the coal traffic. There is always congestion only every now and then it becomes hopeless, and then there's a hubbub. But what is being done to relieve it ? Certainly the authorities are working under pressure while the mines' are idle to overcome the difficulties which pre- sent themselves, yet it is not sur-. prising to find they fail at times. More up-to-date facilities are re- quired for the transportation and shipment of coal, and this is the only remedy that will afford permanent relief. The Government must take into consideration that although the coal traffic is heavy now, it is going to become heavier, for with the   development of new collier...

Labor's Victory. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 19 December 1913

Labor's Victory.         As we predicted in the last issue of the "Eagle" the result of the second ballots conducted in the metropolitan area last Saturday was a surprise. The surprise, however, was experienced by both parties, for the most sanguine Labor enthusiast did not anticipate such a victory. In each electorate the voting was heavy and the majorities small, some exceptionally so. The success achieved by the Labor Party to date will carry weight in the second ballots conducted in the country to- morrow and it is certain Labor will secure sufficient seats to have a working majority. This will give them an opportunity of showing what they are made of. Their life in power so far has been hampered by a very slender majority which has minimised their chances. Under the circumstances they did remark- ably well, and as their efforts in the political arena will not be attendant by similar drawbacks, much good work may result.
