Brutal Assault. ONE CHINAMAN BRUTALLY AS- SAULTS ANOTHER. AH PLING ARRESTED. A SMART CAPTURE. (From our own Correspondent.) Gilgunnia, Wednesday, 6th. This afternoon our quiet little village was aroused to a state of high excitement when the news flew round like a bush fire in a westerly gale, that one Chinaman tried to murder his mate at the Boggy Tank, situated off the road from Gilgunnia to Cobar, about four miles distant from here. Mr Hodgkin- son, the storekeeper of Wirchiliba station, went out to tho camp of the two Chinamen with rations, and, on arriving there, found to his great horror the victim of this terrible deed lying in a pool of blood about 30 yards away from the camp. The man, Ah Clun by name, was fearfully battered and very exhausted, but conscious. Mr Hodgkinson put him into the trap with the assistance of another man, and brought the sufferer into town. Constable James Macpherson was at hand immediately, and Mr. Geo. Eason, J.P. was called and took his deposition...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 April 1899
MINING. Towards the end of last week the new water jacket furnace was 'blown &nbsp; in.' This furnace, since its comple- tion, has remained idle owing to the scarcity of water. When the other furnace was destroyed last week, it was very fortunate for the syndicate that they had the new one. The lucky Cobar tributors, who have now (say) £200,000 a year to play with, are understood to be buying right and left into all promising Cobar shows. Presently they will practi- cally own the whole field, and then (this is an off-handed prophecy) hey for the (say) Great Cobar Consolida- ted Mining Corporation; capital (say) &nbsp; three millions. — Bulletin.

The Deputy Postmaster General wrote, stating that he regretted he could not allow the telephone office at Wrightville post office to be connected with the town exchange at night time, in order that it might be used in case of accidents at the mines or in the event of the police being required. Alderman Hunt explained that he intended the Council to ask for the Wrightville telephone to be connected to the town exchange, when the doc- tor or police could be immediately summoned. Alderman James thought that as all the mines were connected with the telephone the request was unreason- able. The matter then dropped. The Und...

Australian News in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 April 1899
Acstralian News in England. It has often beon n puzzle to understand where English journals get their Australian news from. Some of it is fearfully and wonder fully mangled during the process of transposition from the columns of the Australian to those of the English press. Mere is a paragraph in point, taken from the ' British Weekly', one of the most respectable of English religious weeklies, which has a large circulation in the Auatralasion colonies : — ' A bicycle race was won by a dead man in Sydney a few days t-go. When James Somerville, a champion Australian bicyclist, waswithin twenty yards of the winn ing post, he released his hold of the handles, and his head drooped for ward, but he apparently continued to work the pedals, and came in tbe winner. He waB lifted from his bicycle, and he was found to be dead. The doctors said he died during the last lap.' The facts of tbe unfor tunate case, it will be remembered, are that James Somorville was thrown from his machine while ra...
