Katoomba School of Arts. Its Rise and Progress. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

Katoomba School of Arts. Its Rise and Progress. One of the oldest and most attractive institutions in Katoomba is the School of Arts. Those who rejoice in its present popularity, and enjoy so fully the advantages afforded them by the institution at the present time, will no doubt be interested to learn something of its history since its inception twenty years ago. On June 11, 1889 a public meeting was held at Katoomba to receive a report which had been pre pared by a committee of gentlemen with reference to the foundation of a School of Arts. Mr. F. C. Goj'der occupied the chair, and there was an at tendance of about 20 residents. A meeting had been held on the 23rd May of that year to discuss preliminaries. The greatest difficulty, with which these early enthusiasts had to contend, had been in obtaining suitable premises. From the old Minute Book we learn that ' One definite proposal we have to place before you is that made by Mr. P. Mullany, who is prepared to ..erect premises on ...

Municipal Council Meeting. The usual fortnightly meeting of. the Council, which was held on Tuesday evening, was sonie , what protracted owing to the election of the various Committee's for the coming year, and the appointment of officers. A batch of correspondence was received and dealt with, amongst which was a letter from the Registrar-General's Department referring to the I/iliuufd.s Park Estate, stating that plans had been received, and asking if the Council had any objec tion to offer. — It was deemed to receive the letter, and ask for plans to be submitted before the Coun cil 'could' arrive at; ail)1 decision in the matter.

The Ex-Mayor. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

The Ex-Mayor. Alderman Iyewis Duff, who has just vacated the Mayoral chair, is one of the best known personalities in the district. Being a native of the district,' and to the manner born, it is only natural that his in terest should be centred in the' town in which he lias spent the past twenty-seven years of his active life. He has watched Katoomba grow, and has given valuable assistance to every movement which has had for its ob ject' the welfare of the place. Alderman buff has occupied a seat in the Council for the past fifteen years, hasb^en twice Mayor two years on the first occasion and three years this time, and his stepping aside now from the chair was a disappointment to his brother Aldermen, who wished him to re main. All the chief improvements in the town have been carried out during his term of office, the gate works and water supply, and'tlie sewerage sell erne successfully started on1 its' initial stages, and last, but not least, the projected new Town Hall has been i...

Our New Mayor. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

Ouir New Mayor. Alderman George James, our new Mayor, whose portrait appears herewith, is an old resident of Katoomba, coming here some seventeen years ago, when the working of the shale and coal mines was a live industry, and the Katoomba of to-day was not. It is about fourteen years ago that Aldermah' James established his present business, since when he has steadily forged ahead, and1 drawn round him a very large circl^ of friends , who admire his worth as a straight^ forward' and reliable business mail, ? ever ready to assist by personal' effort and 'fiiiah- cial .aid aiiy object introduced for the wel' fare of the town. He has occupied a seat' iii the Municipal Council for the past live years, and his unanimous election to the Mayoral chair is the best evidence of the estimation in which he is held by his brother aldermen.

A Page of port. Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

I A Page of Sport | y ' [By Amateur.] Boxing. Ever since the clear cut win of Jack Johnson over Tommy Burns, the American mind has been greatly agitated at the fact that the boxing championship of the world is held by a blackfellow. The many thou sands interested in the art of self-defence and attack have set themselves the ta.sk of finding a white man with a chance of .beat ing the present holder of the title. Files just to hand indicate the fact that ninety per cent of the individuals so engaged have focussed their views on the undefeated retired champion Jeffreys, and their hopes that he will be persuaded to once again enter the roped arena is given colour by the statement accredited to him on his re tirement that he would only fight again if a son of Ham or a foreigner were fortunate enough to win the championship. Many others are mentioned as likely to oppose Johnson before long, and each has a little following to say that he will win, but there ' is no one that the great bulk ...

School Concert at Leura. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

School Concert at Leura. A very successful concert was given in the Tveura Hall on Friday night last, February 26th, in aid of Public vSchool Piano Fund, and was well atten ded and proved a great success. Mr. Gollan was again favoured with a nice cool evening, which proved a great benefit to the children who had to take part in the concert. The hall being small the stage was a bit crowded at times, and had the night been warm and sultry much inconvenience would have been felt. As it was, however, everything passed off well, and the children were well cared for by the teachers. A lengthy programme was gone through with, every item of which was a credit to the performer. Space forbids the item ising of each, but those of the audience who had never had the opportunity of hearing the pupils before will be able to gauge the amount of care and attention bestowed by Mr. Gollan and the teachers to ensure success. Mrs. Gollan presided at the piano for the evening, and gave valuable assistanc...

S. Alban's, Leura. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

S. Alban's, Leura. 9 The present Anglican Church is abso lutely unsuitable for the requirements of L,eura. It was built teu3^ears ago, and the rapid growth. of L,euralias rendered it quite inadequate in accommodation or otherwise. During the season it is uncomfortably crowded, and on many occasions numbers of people cannot find accommodation, and in summer and winter it has proved itself an unsuitable and uncomfortable building for Divine Service. Under these circum stances the Sydney Church Endowment Fund has, at the request of representatives of the narish. recently ourchased on behalf of the parish an excellent site for a new Church. It is situated in the centre of L,eura, and has a frontage of 132 feet to Megalong street, with a depth of 264 feet, and there is ample room for the erection of a rectory, when that becomes necessary. It is proposed to commence at once the erec tion of a new Church on this site.** The purchase money for the site, £330, was advanced by the Church Endo...
