The Boring Operations at Woodlands. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
The Boring Operations at Wood- lands. A map of the country at the site where the late Mr. E. P. Price proposed to erect a dam for the mitigation of floods in the Hunter, prepared by Mr. Lance Wilkinson, surveyor, has been placed at the disposal, of Mr. J. Gillies, M.P. With the map is supplied a cross- &nbsp; section of the strata through which the boring has proceeded, and the result of the investigation is to show, it is alleged, the solidity of the foundation, and its ability to bear the great structure Mr. Price purposed to put upon it &nbsp; The strata pierced consists of alluvium, recent alluvial drift, coarse drift and boulders, and finally a thick bed of conglomerate. Below the river, after the drift is got through there is a layer of blue shale, a seam of coal, a band of white shale, a seam of coal, a layer of blue shale, and then the conglomerate. The coal is in ample supply and of the best quality, and there is sandstone in exhaustless quantity equal in qu...
The Labor Party. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
The Labor Party. The position of the labor party in re- gard to matters political moment just now - was defined by Mr. W. M. Hughes, M. P., at a meeting on Friday night. The party had refused to sup- &nbsp; port Mr. Lyne because his past record showed that he and his probable col leagues, if he came into office, were not friends of the working classes. Mr Reid had promised the labor party con- cessions, and his face was at least set in the right direction ; but Mr Lyne pro- mised them nothing in the way of de- &nbsp; mocratic reform. He denounced the, leader of the Opposition and his foll- owers as willing slaves of the conserva- tives and the banks ; and cited the cases of shearers and seamen to dis- &nbsp; prove Mr. Lyne's assertion that under &nbsp; dfrect taxation wages had been re &nbsp; duced. He, however, considered that &nbsp; Mr Reid's scheme of Upper House re form did not go far enough, and sug gested that the power of veto v...

The Standard for Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
The Standard for Milk. Friday's Gazette contains tho follow- ing notification by the Colonial Treasurer, issued under rhe provision of the Public Health Act of 1896, with regard to the standard for milk. It runs as follows :— "Milk shall contain not less than 12¼ per centum of genuine milk solids, of which at least 3¼ per centum shall be butter fat ; the milk solids to be obtained by drying any convenient quantity of the sample on a water bath for three hours until constant in weight; then upon sub- straction of 3¼ per centum of fat, the remainder shall be taken as the co-. efficient of solids not fat,' and shall be at least 9 per centum." This is the average standard for milk, and it is understood that it is intended to apply not only to milk as supplied by the milkmen, but also to that supplied to creameries for butter-making pur poses. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
Items of Interest. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
Items of Interest. On Sunday the engineers of the steamer Bulimba, which was on the point of departure from Melbourne to Western Australia, refused to proceed to sea because it was Sunday. An at- tempt was made to induce the en- gineers to alter their determination, but with no success. The vessel was then hauled down the river by a tug, and she anchored in Hobson's Bay. The Premier left by express train for Melbourne on Sunday night. On Monday the finance committee of the Federal Convention commenced its sittings, and it was to attend this meet- ing that Mr. Reid has gone over be- fore the other delegatos to the Con- vention. The London branch of the Amalga- mated Society of Engineers has with- drawn its demand for eight hours. Before work can be resumed the em- ployers insist on the acceptance of their terms with rogard to the man- agement of their concerns. There is a proposal of co-operation on the part of Germany and Great Britain in connection with the floating of the Chinese ...
Land Matters. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
Land Matters. _____ &nbsp; Tenders were invited some time since for certain of the lands in the Bogan dis- trict which had been operated upon by the unemployed as improvement leases, the conditions being residence, or in lieu of residence the cultivation of at least 500 acres of the land. A number of tenders have been sent in, and the following have been accepted :—Block 371, about 3000 acres; blocks 375, 377, and.378, about 7000 acres; and block 407, 5140 acres. Tenders were for- &nbsp; warded for 11 other blocks, but in &nbsp; &nbsp; these cases the department refused the tenders, as modified conditions were asked for, and they were therefore in formal. The results so far are satis- factory, and the Crown will secure ample repayment for the expenditure, and the conditions will ensure the &nbsp; &nbsp; occupation and improvement of the country. Other blocks will shortly be offered as conditions render them avail- able. 'Action-has bee...
A Thrilling Experience. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
A Thrilling Experience. &nbsp; During the progress - of the bush fires which raged in some Victorian &nbsp; districts last week, one thrilling experi- ence is recorded. Two men, farm hands, left Mirboo on horseback to ride,to Yarragan. After going about &nbsp; four miles, the air became thick, and presently they observed flames leaping from tree to tree on the south side. They decided to keep on believing they would soon leave the flames be- hind. After proceeding a couple of miles they became alarmed by the roar- ing noise of the great fire, and immedi- ately afterwards , raging flames burst &nbsp; through the forest undergrowth, huge trees crashing to the ground in all di- rections. They galloped forward but the fire was advancing, and presently &nbsp; burning trees were falling ahead across &nbsp; the track. Their clothes caught fire from the burning, leaves falling about them, and they dismounted at a creek and drenched their "hors...
The Carruthers' Libel Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
The Carruthers' Libel Case. The following appeared in Satur- day's Armidale Chronicle :— Sir,—In your Wednesday's issue you give a wrong interpretation to the letter which I considered it my duty to write to the Evening News correcting a misrepresentation by their Armidale correspondent as to how the jury were divided on G. Lonsdale's letter to Truth newspaper. In order to make the matter perfectly clear, I now state that ten of the jury recognised that what they had to consider was whether the evidence proved Mr. Car- ruthers to have been guilty of personal corruption—had used his position to confer favours "in payment for ser- vices rendered." Ten of the jury agreed that the letter was libellous and were willing to bring in a verdict of guilty against both defendants. Five &nbsp; of the ten wanted a rider added that no .punishment should be inflicted— not because that they considered that the matter was not justified, but be- cause they thought that the Press &nbsp...
General News.. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
General News.. It may interest the business people, who are quite satisfied to allow Asiatic labourers to compete with white wage workers, to know that the Japs are building sixteen new steamers for the Australian trade.—Q. Worker. Here is rather a funny story told the other day, of an Irish landlady who kept a public house in a small-country town near Sydney. A traveller, find ing the steak so tough that he could not masticate it, told her to take it away and bring a couple of boiled eggs. In a short time she brought him a couple of dozen. " What in the world did you bring all these for," asked the astonished man. " Well, sare, its like this," she replied, "I did be havin' them eggs on hand for a while, and &nbsp; ne'er a won of me knows which of them is good. So l thought I'd better boil the hull of them, and let ye' throw away the bad ones " One of the most extraordinary freaks of nature, as such things are generally called, was brought under the notice of the Tasmanian M...
The Federal Convention. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898
The Federal Convention. THE third session of the Federal Con- vention will commence in Melbourne on Wednesday. The vexed questions of the powers of the two houses, and of the appointment of revenue and ex- penditure will have to be solved this time, and it is unlikely that the Conven- tion will complete its labors in less than five or six weeks. Mr. Edmund Barton, Q.C., will again be the leader of the Convention; and professes the fullest &nbsp; confidence that a satisfactory bill will be drafted. That bill will then be sub- mitted direct to the people of each colony for a simple "Yes" or "No," and if the majority vote is in the af- firmative Federation will come from the realms of speculation into the arena of practical politics." Queensland and &nbsp; Westralia seem quite indifferent, and in New South Wales itself, the problems of the approaching general election seem to absorb all political energies. It is significant that when speaking in Mudgee the Premier did n...
