Knock-OUt No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 19 December 1913
Knock-Out No. 2. The Cessnock Shire Council re- ceived their second police court reverse last Tuesday, when, at the local court, the police magistrate &nbsp; was called on to determine whether the Cessnock Co-operative Dairy Co., Ltd., did suffer residue from their factory to run into the creek. The question resolved itself into a point of law. Evidence adduced showed the company had taken precautions to have the residue absorbed in a cultivation area and had leased the area with this understanding, but admitted that some of the residue found its way into the creek, but claimed they did not suffer it to enter the creek as they had no know- ledge of it so doing. The solicitor for the council argued that the com- pany could not lease away a liability and the fact of them leasing a block of land did not get them out of their liability, as the ordinance read that slops must not be run into a water- course. The magistrate, however, decided to dismiss the information. When next th...
The Dry Weather and the Collieries. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 19 December 1913
The Dry Weather and the Collieries. The dry weather has had the effect of curtailing the supply of water at the local collieries. At the Aberdare Extended Colliery the dam supply is completely exhausted and the col- liery has had to fall back on the town supply. The company is taking advantage of the dam's dry state by giving it a thorough cleaning out. Considering that this colliery use between 30,000 and 40,000 gallons of water daily the shortage in their own supply means a con- siderable loss to the company. Aherdare dam is also getting low, and unless rain soon comes they too may have to fall back on the good old Hunter. Aberdare uses more water than the Extended.
Wine Industry Active. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 19 December 1913
Wine Industry Active. The district wine growers are ex- periencing a very busy season. Like other district industries the wine industry is expanding and each year the volume of business is getting larger. The Christmas season is always an extra busy season in &nbsp; wines, and with the reputation the Pokolbin and district wines have made it is not at all surprising that enquiries are being made for our wines from all quarters. Each year we find the acreage under vines in- creasing and the continual increase of business justifies the additions and improvements. This year some thousands of pounds have been spent in the Pokolbin district in permanent improvements in connection with the industry, and the plant of some of our vignerons are now of most up-to-date character. It is only a matter of a very short time when the wine of our district will be known throughout the length and breadth of the Commonwealth.

World's Ball-Punching Record. TOM HOGAN SUCCEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 19 December 1913
World's Ball-Punching Record. TOM HOGAN SUCCEEDS. Tom Hogan, the Bellbird miner, who commenced on the night of the 11th December, at 8 o'clock, in his effort to break the world's record (40 hours 5 minutes) for endurance ball punching, succeeded in attaining his object. Hogan intended to keep going 50 hours, concluding at 10 p.m. on Saturday, but when he had beat- en the record by one hour his friends, particularly his wife, prevailed upon him to disist in his effort, after a deal of pursuasion. Hogan was somewhat unfortunate in his ven- ture, for the reason he had only been going a short time when he con- tracted influenza, and to keep going under those canditions stamps Hogan as being the equal of the best of the famous Trojans. On Friday night Tom was in a bad way. His attack of influenza was acute, one of his ankles "went" on him, and what with wind on the stomach he had plenty of battles to fight. Yet he lasted the journey of 41 hours 5 minutes breaking the record by one hour a...

Cessnock Races. SUCCESSFUL MEETING. The Cessnock Jockey Club's De- cember meeting was held under very favorable weather conditions last Saturday. The attendance was large, and the racing was good. The offi- cial starter, Mr. J. Renfrew, was un- able to be present through illness, and a wire to this effect was received &nbsp; late. Mr. Snape was induced to act &nbsp; as starter, and unfortunately the first &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; start was not a good one. However, &nbsp; everything else went off in tip-top &nbsp; style and the meeting may be said &nbsp; to have been a success in every &nbsp; way. The takings in the leger pad- &nbsp; dock showed a considerable improve- ment. Mr. J.
