THE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

THE FLOODS   It is not often that the country north of the Dividing Range gets the benefit of such a tremendous rainfall as has occurred during the past week. From the Murrum- bidgee and the Darling, and all across Central Australia, the story is the same, of a thorough tropical downpour. In Torres Straits and the Northern Terri- tory, heavy rains at the proper season may always be depended upon, but it is only in occasional years that it reaches Riverina and Victoria. The rain in this district conmmenced on Wednesday week, but the following Thursday and Friday were comparatively fine. On Saturday night the downpour began again, and continued all day Sunday, the rain on Sunday night, being tremendously heavy. Between Weidnesdaiy week and Monday evening last, 4.18 inches of rain fell. This great body of water, in addition to the rain in the mountains, naturally brought the rivers and creeks into high flood. Tihe flats botween Wodong and Albury have at present more water ...

BETHANGA. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

BETHANGA (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The Hawksview crushing proved very satisfactory. Thirty-four tons giving   72 oz. of gold, with plenty of the same stone to hand. This being the first crushing by those tributors, a great deal of dead work had to be done ; the reef, or rather leaders, are small, but numerous, and very rich. Several other parties have also had good yields, but the leaders as a rule, although rich, are so small and hard, that the expenses have been too great to be profitable. The late rains have had the effect of making old farmers young men again with joy, for up to now the prospects for the summer were very gloomy. All lagoons were dry, even in the middle of   winter, and nearly all springs were dry ; but now the whole is changed. We were at one time used to floods, and an annual visitation was looked for, but the last few years have been exceptions. As a rule but little damage has been done by the late floods. Both Murray and Mitta ri...

MITTA MITTA. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

MITTA MITTA (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) A large number, if not all, of the men employed at contract work, in cutting the race of the Mammoth Sluicing Com- pany, Granite Flat, have been suspended until the levels laid down by Mr W. O. Roberts have been completely checked by the company's surveyor, some doubt having arisen as to the accurateness of the survey. It is, however, to be hoped that they will be found correct, for the interests of the company, as well as the profes- sional reputation of our Californian friend, Mr. Roberts. The Union Sluicing Company have completed their second tail-race, and, judging from the velocity with which the water and debris travels down the boxes, it ought to be capable of running out an immense amount of wash in a week. The Pioneer expect to have their tunnel for tail race through in about a month, when we shall have an oppor- tunity of seeing their pipes and hydrants at work. The pipes bear every impress of being a genuine article, though in publ...

DEATH OF MR. A. A. M'CANN. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

DEATH OF MR. A. A. M'CANN. A feeling of deep regret was cast over the minds of the inhabitants of Snowy Creek and Mitta Mitta on hearing of the death of Mr Alban A. M'Cann, eldest   surviving son of Mr Torrens M'Cann, of Rockapline. The deceased, who had en- deared himself to all who knew him by his amiable and frank disposition, was sent to the Melbourne Hospital about ten months ago for treatment of chronic spinal disease. But although no imme- diate danger was apprehended, the doc- tors held out but small hopes of his ulti- mate recovery, and it had been intended to remove him home when the genial spring weather had fully set in. He, however, contracted cold, with which malady the already weak frame was unable to cope, although everything that medical skill and kind attention could do was tried. He quietly passed away on the 25th August, at the early age of twenty-five years, leaving his bereaved parents to mourn the loss of an affectionate and devoted son. It is sad...

THE CHANGING STATION QUESTION. MELBOURNE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

THE CHANGING STATION QUES TION [BY SPECIAL WIRE]. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT).   MELBOURNE, Thursday. In the Assembly this afternoon, Mr Bent's motion having been ruled out of order, the hon. member for Brighton moved the adjournment of the House to discuss the new arrangements for changing trains at Wodonga and Albury. He said the matter was important to the residents of Wodonga, who felt they were injured by the change, and he must protest against Albury being the only changins station on the intercolonial line. It was not fair to take goods to Albury, N.S.W., for less than to Wodonga, a loyal Vic torian town, and he ponted out that the agreement he had made, when Minister of Railways, with New South Wales had been broken. Mr Gillies said the question was a difficult one to deal with, as, owing to bad work, the mutual agreement had been slightly infringed. The people of Wodonga were under a misapprehension. Supposing that Wodonga would be injured though such could no...

Wodonga & Towong Sentinel. "Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!"—MILTON. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

"Awake ! Arise ! Or be for ever fallen !" MILTON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1885 WODONGA is happily represented in Parliament. Mr BILLSON is just now suffering from "fog fever," and con sequently is not in a position to stand upon the floor of the House, and fight our battles. This matters the less, however, owing to the circumstance that, when the hon. gentleman is thoroughly fit and up to business, his qualifications are more suited to tra velling round the departments, attend ing to small commissions for poor con stituents, than to debating any important subject from his place in Parliament. As to the Hon. G. B. KERFERD, the case is entirely diffe rent. It is well-known that there is, or there is about to be, a vacancy on the Supreme Court bench; and the hon. gentleman is so sure of his eleva tion, that, whether the town of   Wodonga is wiped out by Albury or not, is a matter of complete indiffe rence to him. True, many of our townspeople supported him well at the last ...

ANTI-IMPERIAL FEDERATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

ANTI-IMPERIAL FEDERATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. SIR, - Your sympathies seem rather be with federation under the British Empire. Would your kindly permit me to contrast independence with your ideal of future peace and greatness of Australia. Is it difficult to conjecture that the Afghan dilemma will finally lead to a war? There will be combinations of great Powers as well as aspirations of subjugated nationalities. There is not one newspaper on the Continent which, during the late war scare, did not pressage England's discomfiture. Much is said about the low state of Russian finances. It is difficult to judge Russian internal affairs correctly. Russia has an extensive property in mines, yet I cannot remember to have seen any Russian mining statistics. But, Mr Editor, whatever be the issue of the pre sent difficulty - be it a war between two Powers only, or a general European - Asiatic conflagration - Australia will be safe from invasion, if she proclaims her independence and...

POISON AT BARANDUDA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

POISON AT BARANDUDA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. SIR, - I have read and re-read a good deal of late about the poisoning of valuable dogs all over the colony, and I would like to know if it is legal for a man to lay poison within a few chains of the road, allow it to remain there all day and night, and then (as in my case) to put up a notice warning owners of dogs? If the law stands thus, I   hope alteration will shortly be made in it. - Yours, &c.,   A VOICE FRoM BARANDUDA.

WODONGA ATHENÆUM. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

WODONGA ATHENÆUM     A well-attended meeting of the com mittee of the newly-formed athenæum was held in the state school on Tuesday evening. The members present were Messrs Ferrier, O'Connor, Crooke, Mackay, Moulder, McLean, Shekleton Syder, Parnaby, Adams, and Hill, Mr Ferrier, as president, explained that in conjunction with Mr Adams he had taken steps to secure buildings fot the institute. The property known as Hillerman's build ings had been purchased for £200, and Mr Adams had paid a deposit of £10 upon them. The committee might either take the buildings or not, at their pleasure, as Mr Adams was so satisfied withe specu   lation that he was quite willing to retain them if the institution did not desire them. Mr Adams said that the property was an excellent one. As an old resident of Wodonga, he had long looked upon the burnt down buildings as an eyesore, and had often contemplated purchasing them. Mr D. Mackay explained that a com pany co...

SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

SECOND DAY. Splendid weather again favored the second day of the show. Fully 7000 people graced the ground with their   presence, and everything passed off without the slightest accident to mar the pleasure of those who attended. Pro ceedings commenced by the buggies and does being judged. The prizetakes in the latter class included Mr J. G. Wigg, of Wodonga, for bulldog, and Mr Cobham, for mastiff. The great attraction in the afternoon was the   jumping tests, and the judges had   great difficulty in making their awards. The prize for best hunter capable of carry ing 12st., was taken by Mr Newcomen's Nimrod; Mr Alick Smith's Davy being second, and A. Paton and Son's entry   third. Nimrod also took first prize for   best sound hunter. Miss G?oghehan, of Sydney, carried off first prize for best lady's hunter. Mr J. Lloyd secured first prize for best lady's hackney, and Riall Bros. the second. The best walking weight-car...

THE ALBURY SHOW. FIRST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 September 1885

TILE ALBURY SHOW. FIRST DAY. If the stewards of the Albury and Border Pastoral and Agricultural Society had the choosing of a day out of the 365, it is doubtful whether, for favorable climatic conditions, they would have picked a more beautifully fine day than Wednesday last. The show was held under the happiest auspices, the splendid rains having put the country people in the highest spirits. For days past the Federal City has been thronged by visi tors from distant localities; and Corryong, Tallangatta, Bethanga, and the other   places in the Upper Murray district all contributed their quota. As for wo donga, the Albury road was alive with vehicles, filled with groups of light hearted pleasure-seekers. On entering the show-ground, it was at once per ceived that a great change had been effected in the appearance of the place. The grandstand erected to give the public a view of the trials of the hunters, for which such an utter failure was pre dicted, and which proved s...

WvODONGA DEPUTATION... On Friday last a deputation from the Wodonga Atlhenmum and Free Library committeoo waited upon thlle Hon.

MrCrooke, hon. secretary to the coummittee, ex plained that they had purchased Holler man's buildings, at Wodonga, for £200, and required £200 more to set theom in order. Mr Hill stated that the buildings were thoroughly sound, and would, with some expenditure, do admirably. Mr Berry, in reply, said lihe would strain a point for Wodonga, which town had, in his opinion, been ill-treated, and lihe would grant £200 to meet another £200 to be raised locally by loan or subscrip tion. Mr Kerferd then introduced a deputation from the cemetery trustees to the Minister of Public Works, who granted £78 for fencing purposes. Mr Service, as Treasurer, was subsequently asked by Mr...
