1897. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898
1897. The old year has taken its departure and is now numbered among those &nbsp; that are past. The customary greet- ing becomes more than a mere form, for there have now been so many years which have not been particu- larly happy" that it is sincerely to be hoped that 1898 will prove an exception. The past year has been fruitful in significant events, as the following summary will show. Their general resultant, as regards Aus- tralia, has been that of recovery, re- tarded by untoward seasons, but re- lieved in some measures by an ad- vance in prices. As, however, the advance was mainly due to calamity, either here or elsewhere, it cannot reasonably be expected to be per- manent. Politically, the most im- portant event within the colony has been the Federal movement. Dele- gates to the Federal Convention were elected with great unanimity, and, though as yet they have failed to formulate a constitution which will meet with general acceptance, the failure is certain to lead t...

Escape of a Prisoner [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898
Escape of a Prisoner ON Monday evening last week, a prisoner named William Stewart, who had been arrested by Constables Breen and Harrison on the previous Saturday night, on a charge of stealing at Den- man, and against whom other charges are pending, escaped from the local lock-up. Stewart had been brought before the court during the day and re- manded to Denman to be dealt with. Pending his removal to Denman, the accused was confined in the local lock-up. About 7 o'clock in the even ing Constable Harrison (lock-up keeper) had occasion to go into the cell occupied by Stewart, when the latter suddenly attacked and over- powered the constable, and made his escape ; but before doing so he locked the gaoler up in the cell. Mrs. Harri- son, hearing her husband's cries, re- leased him from the cell. In the mean time the fugitive scaled the fence sur- rounding the premises, and passing through several yard's made his way to Sowerby Street. The last seen of &nbsp; him as night was ...

Millgrove. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898
Millgrove. THE Council made a great mistake in not securing Millgrove when the place was put up for sale." The above remark, which was made several times on Monday last, during the progress of the Athletic Club's sports, apparently voiced the opinions of a large number of townspeople there present. It would be difficult to find a lovelier or more suitable spot in which to rest for a few hours during the summer weather than Millgrove as it appears at the present time. It is an ideal park, and therefore it is not to be wondered at that peo- ple lament the fact that it is private property and does not belong to the public. The owner (Mr. Withycombe) generously grants the use of the ground for pleasure parties and other re-unions, whenever requested to do so ; but the public generally may only go there on sufferance- Millgrove being but a nar- row strip of land between Muscle Creek and the Hunter River, apart from the buildings within the factory enclosure cannot be of much value to its...
Christmas Eye. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898
Christmas Eve. THE local streets were thronged on Christmas Eve night with a crowd of people. Business people report that a good trade was done, toys and fancy articles being in great demand. Decoration of premises with greenery was the exception, but in several places Chinese lanterns were displayed. Mr. F. Budden had his premises nicely illu- minated, the most prominent feature being the proprietor's name shown in gas. Mr. Budden is the first to intro- &nbsp; duce this mode of advertising his busi- ness to Muswellbrook; but probably his example will soon be followed by other enterprising business people. Perhaps the most attractive display of the night was that at Mr. F. J. Clark's butcher's shop, where the il- luminations, decorations, and Christ- mas cheer attracted a crowd of sight seers. Evidently, Christmas of 1897 was a time of merry making and joy- ousness, betokening more general pros- perity than has been the case for some years past. Towards midnight mem- bers ot...

Cricket. Muswellbrook V. Bunnan. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 1 January 1898
Cricket. Muswellbrook v. Bunnan. A team of cricketers representing the Muswellbrook Cricket Club journeyed to Bunnan, a distance of some thirty miles, to meet the cricketers of that, village in a match of the Campbell trophy competition. The match was played on Monday and resulted in a win for Muswellbrook by seven wickets. The win, we believe, was a lucky one, as the villagers led by 2 runs on the first innings, and the necessary runs to score a win were only obtained just before the call of time. The trip was an enjoyable one, and the local men speak well od the treatment they re- ceived. Following are the scores :— Bunnan—1st Innings. A. McDonald, 0 Garnsey, b W. Camp- bell......0 &nbsp; &nbsp; D. McDonald, b W. Campbell...... 1 &nbsp; C. Logan, 0 and b Lipscomb..... 33 T. Hay ward, c Lipscomb, b W. Camp- bell ...... 0 A. Barwick, b Lipscomb .......2 J.

Muswellbrook Athletic Club's Sports. The annual sports meeting of the Muswellurook Athletic Club was held on Monday last (Boxing Day) under the most favorable weather conditions, the day being more like one in spring than midsummer, with a gentle breeze blowing. The beautiful Millgrove, &nbsp; ????? the sports were held, but seldom ???? seen to better advantage, the &nbsp; ground being covered with a nice growth of young grass, ???? fine lot of &nbsp; ornamental trees with which the ground &nbsp; is studded, clothed with luxuriant foil- age, amongst which bright colored bunting was hung in profusion, mak- ing a most pleasant sight. Though the Hon. Secretary, and some of the Committee and officials were on the ground betimes and busied themselves in making preparations for carrying out the programme, but others were some what dilatory in turning up, and conse- quently their duties had, for a time, to be performed by others. The attend- ance up to lunch...
