Dederang Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 8 November 1890
Dederang Concert. The concert and ball held at the Dederang State School on Friday | evening last was a great success. The only drawback was the insufficiency j of accommodation, the school-house being rather small. Its inconveniences were specially marked during the ball, when the patrons of terpsichore could well have occupied a building twice the size. However an ill wind generally blows some good, and in this instance the frequent observa tions ' Dederang should be able to 1 raise a public hall,?' will probably lead to activity in this direction. It appears that Tawonga can boast of a hall, and the residents of Dederang feel somewhat ashamed that they have to put up with a schoolroom, and a small one at that. Amongst so many enterprising men as there ap pears to be at Dederang we should imagine £100 should soon be raised. The proceeds of a race meeting devoted to a hall, a few concerts, a few subscription lists, and the major portion of the wherewithal would be obtained. The you...
CONTRADICTION. [TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 8 November 1890
% A CONTRADICTION, j J Tto the editor of the times.] ; . Sir, — In your issue of Saturday, 1st instant, I observed a report made by Messrs Calder and W. Moore to the Yackandandah Athletic Sports Com mittee, that they (accompanied with Mr Smart) waited upon me re Shire Hall on Boxing night. I beg to state tha,t Mr Smart -did not accompany them ; nor did I say 1 would not give up the hall, bnt told Mr Calder and | Mr Moore plainly that 1 did not want the hall, and to proceed with their ar rangements. I will challenge Mr Calder or any other person to come forward and assert that ever they heard me say I intended to keep the hall, or that I would not give it up. I defy them. I told them that if they were afraid, they should pay for the hire and have done with it, as I was held responsible for it. Since then I have asked Mr Smart in the presence of W. Moore, if he ever heard me re fuse the hall, and h® answered dis tinctly ' No.' In justice to myself I ask yon to insert this in your next...
CUP DAY. MELBOURNE CUP. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 8 November 1890
CUP DAY. Melbourne Cup. CARBINE (Ramage) 1 HIGHBORN .. ... ... 2 CORREZE ... ... . 3 Carbine won with the greatest of ease, by two clear lengths. The excitement was most intense, and the cheering that followed quite eclipsed anything ever heard at Flem- ington since the victory of The Barb. Time — 3 minutes 28¼ seconds. The racing at Flemington on Tues- day (Cup Day) was specially interest- ing, and the result of the Melbourne Cup race, which Mr D. S. Wallace's famous horse Carbine won. was re- ceived with tremendous enthusiasm by the assemblage of spectators. There were 39 starters for the race, the number being the largest on record. Carbine was a pronounced favourite in the betting market, and he justified the faith reposed in him by his backers, who included a large section of the racing public, and not a select party merely, by winning with ease at the finish of the fastest race yet run for the Melbourne Cup. The weight carried by Carbine was 10st 5lb., the heaviest impost ever...

Important Mining Decision. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 15 November 1890
Important Mining Decision. Mr Warden Rowan delivered his reserved decision in the case of Rob inson v. Nankervis in the Warden's Court at Bethanga on Wednesday. The case, which is one of six brought against six employes of Mr J. A. j Wallace, excited considerable interest ; in mining circles. The complaint j was for the recovery of damages for trespass on certain ma/Vhinew -sif.ps i originally held by Mr Wallace, but which, it Avas alleged, were forfeited by reason of the miuers' rights, under which tlie}' were held, having been allowed to expire. On these sites tailings are deposited, which, under tlie new process of treatment intro duced by Mr Wallace, are said to be worth £15,000. The complainant, discovering the flaw in the title to the sites, took possession of the latter, and obtained registration for them, without having previously obtained an adjudication of forfeiture. Mr Rowan mentioned that it was ad mitted in Court that the Complain ant had the proper number of miners' r...
DAIRY FARMING.. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 15 November 1890
Dairy Farming. In this district where grazing is the chief in dustry of ifche farmer® it is a wonder that more ' attention ha^j not been paid to the dairy. -Stock fattening and dairy ing should go together, and if pro perly combined a good income is i derivable each year. Most of our farmers have families growing up, and ihe question aiises, 'Will grazing alone keep them all profitably em ployed.' We are afraid not. A judicious combination of industries will achieve this object, and give every member of the family some thing to do. * We lia-^e heard it urged that distinct classes of cattle are re quiredjfor fattening and dairying ; in the one case a large framed beast is needed that will bring in weight to its owner ; whilst if a beast is put ting on flesh it cannot turn its food into milk. There is a great deal of truth in this observation. The Polled Angus cattle, for instance, are ack nowledged to be the best breed for fattening, and it is well-known that they are useless for mil...

Robinson, the latter secured a parcel of 6^ tons of tailings .from the leases in dispute, ana sent it to Messrs J olmston, Field and Breman, of Melbourne, for treat ment by a process known to that firm. The return was lOoz. 6dwt. 12gr., or 83 per cent, of fine assay. The reserved decision in the trespass cases was given by the warden on Wednesday, and it was awaited with much interest, as the leases of the Wallace Bethanga Company are at present under offer to an English syndicate, from whom an answer is expected next ninnth.
