Bowral News. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Advocate — 22 February 1898

Itowral News. Perfect weather in Bowral since the rain ; clear, crisp, and cool. The days are shortening; uutuinn is setting in, with & suspicion of frosts. Aid. W. Murray's term as Mayor , of Bowral commenced on Thursday evening in a manner which betokens breezes ahead. The circuuisUnceb surrounding the now famous minute which, after a long debate, . and a tronhleeoiue reading and.pnnotuating of bylaws, was ruled out of order, are these. At the end of the municipal year two of the finance cotnmi'.tee were among the three retiring aldermen, and the committee to succeed, them was not appointed until the meeting on Thursday night, the same at which the miuute was presented. There fore the fortnightly accounts were not signed inasmuch as there was no com mittee in existence to sign them. The minute was put on the buBiuess paper to obviate this difficulty. It read — ' that wages and accounts due amount ing to £48 12s lOd be passed for pay ment.' Thereupon the objecuou was taken ...

The Bowral Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Advocate — 22 February 1898

The Bowral Churches Having dispospd of St. Simon's and St. Judn's there is not much more to be said in respect of the o'hers. It would not be fair, however, lo pass them over without some reinai k. The first to be noticed, is that of the Wes leyan 6, standing on tbs west Bide oi Bendooley-street— is that a Hibernian or »u Aboriginal name J Had it been Benosborne it would ha\e been Eng ish, but after all ' what's in a name 1 ' The Chapel, which is of brick, stands in a spacious enclosure and seemB to be a very substantial erection, and should seat, I suppose some four hun dred worshippera. The musical ser vices are conducted by a very efficient choir, with the assistance of an ex cellent harmonium, for which, at some future tirau, an orgiu is to be substi tuted. The ground surrounding the Chapel would be none the worse for a little trimming up, which I fancy could be easily attended to by one or two members of the congregation in rotation, just to make it look nice and attraciive.

Bowral School of Arts- ~ „„,.. ', . „ To rait Editor; , , ? T.Buv^r .cpangt . ^r-JejtWieirhat surprised at the proposal of the School of Arts committee to run the institu tion further into debt by building an extension to an already unstable build ing ; ana, moreover, it is but a short time since that zealous officer, the librarian, had his salary reduced on the plea of economy. Where does the consistency come in to expend say £30 to augmant the comfort of a small section of the subscribers 1 That the calling for tenders for the work is said to be non-committal to the committee iu nil rot ; it is the thin end of the wedge to carry the proposal. If it is not is it juBtice to invite buildf-rs to give a price for work that is not in tended to be carried out ? The point rcised as to whether they could alter the building without the consent of a general meeting is a good one, but it will have no effect when it comes to the vote. The advent of the billiard table must havo added to the wor...
