CAPTAIN COOK'S LANDING AT BOTANY BAT. The Story Told by Cook. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 12 May 1899
CAPTAIN COOK'S LANDING AT BOTANY BAT. The Story Told by Cook. As (lie majority of young Australians «pi>e«r to be ignorant of the real date and circumstances of the landing of Captain Cook on Australian soil, the following account of that historical event mil be found both interesting and instructive. The actual date of the landing of the illustrious navi gator was on April 28, 1770. This date must not be confounded with that memorable day 110 years ago when Governor Phillip proclaimed New South Wales a British posses-, sion. Some facts in connection with the landing and the locality may prove interesting. The spot is on a little sandy beach just inside the rocky headland that juts boldly out to sea on thu south shore of Botany Bay. It has since been callcd Kumell, and but for a small plate attached to a rock in the vicinity, and a sandstone monument erected by a private citizen, thfl place has been unnoticed by the inhabitants of Australia for over a hundred years. It was this l...

Tall Train Yarns. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 12 May 1899
Tall Train "Jams. A Philadelphia paper calmly announ ces that trains in Australia carry first, second and third class passengers with out any distinction of care. The only difference, says this journal, is when the train arrives at the foot of a very steep hill. Then the ticket collectors come round and inspect the tickets, and the result is that the first classeis are allowed to retain their seats, the second classers are expected to get out and climb the hill, and third clasBers are expected to get out and help push the train up. Evidently the reliable American journal n:ust either take our trains for play ones, or imagine that Australia breeds giants , or is it but another example of that alleged Yan kee humour which finds its vent in Max Adeler impossibilities f It may be our cousins' way of denouncing the steep Australian grades, even as they denounce the slowness of certain of the American lines, and this with a wit which is calculated to appeal to their peculiar imaginations....

CORRESPONDENCE. (TO THE EDITOR COBARGO CHRONICLE). [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 12 May 1899
tJORKESPONDEfiCE. Editor Cobaeoo Chronicle). Bib,—Kindly permit me through your columns to expose the scandalously neglected state of the road between Gobargo and Yourie. No contract Jtu been let on this road since 1897. What has become of the yearly grant 1 It certainly cannot have been expended in maintenance work, for it is rarely a man is seen on the road. During Mr. Postle's time a maintenance man was almost continuously kept on the thoroughfare mentioned, and he did good work, many excellent iobs stand ing as a credit to this individual. But now tbe road is in a scandalous state of disrepair, the holes and ruts caused by the February 1898 flood not even being filled in. Perhaps the yearly grant has been spent on red painting the rocks and trees in £rogo and other parts. I would strongly. suggest that this road be vested in trustees who will at all events see that any available money is expended, and on the road that ib is voted for. Road Supers are only human after all and the...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 12 May 1899
LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS The Cobargo Band will play out on Saturday evening (to-morrow). Mb. William T. Henry is the suc cessful tenderer tor the fencing in con nection with the Cobargo Public School. Sub-Inspectoe Laxoworthy has been transferred from Braidwood to Cooma in the room of Mr. Cornett who ret lieu on a full pay pension. We understand that a Mr. H. E. Hocking bas been recommended to the Civil Service Board for appointment as teacher at the Wallaga Lake Aboriginal Station. We presume this appointment is the outcome of the Protection Board's recent inquiry and subsequent recommendation to have a married couple placed in charge. If by any chance the Amended Commonwealth Bill is defeated on the 20th June, the contributing great factors to such a nationally regrettable calamity will be the clever and un scrupulous Daily Telegraph and the in sincere posturing* of Premier Beid. The latter by shallowing every clause of the Bill that he condemned scarce a year ago has banished the s...

®Ift Cljrmtirte. For the cause thai Jacks assistance, JVjr the terongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good thai toe can do. Cobahgo, Friday, Mat 12, 1899. The great question of Federation has assumed such a practical and ad vanced stage that iq a few weeks the people of this colony will be called upon to give their votes for or against the Amended Commonwealth Bill. In view of this fact it seemB almost a retrograde movement in Federal thought and progress to begin, at the present period of the history of the cauBP, to discuss the advantages— commercial, social and national—that •will accrue through Federation to the people of this great island continent of Australia. And jet, we think, the people have not been sufficiently in structed in these advantages and benefits that have impelled the leading thinkers of Australia to so sedulously, and at such loss of time and money to fight the battle of Federation in the face of organised, clever—and in many ins...

AN HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF THE SAMOAN TROUBLE. How the War Started. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 19 May 1899
AN HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OP THE SAMOAN TROUBLE. How the War Started So many versions of the trouble in Samoa have been published, so many comments based upon wrong grounds have found expression of late, and so many unjust things—yes, and bitter things, too—have been said of upright and merciful men who are doing their duty with the utmost humanity, that a resident of the island at present in Sydney has felt impelled to make a statement of the case, so as to present, he says, a true picture of the whole trouble. It was in 1989 that the cloud came. It was found necessary to deport Malietoa about that time, and Ma taafa started out lo run things his way, with the result that be came against the Germans, who supported Tamasese. There was a war, as you know, and, as you also know, the Germans were beaten by Mataafa. His men were well armed, well sup plied with ammunition, and they were led with good judgment. The war was quickly ended, but Mataafa wasn't). He had tasted blood, but he wanted...

Leah's Engagement CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 19 May 1899
Leah's Engagement CHAPTER III. She was near the point where the road made a sharp descent into a little hollow, when the footfalls of the horse Buddenly ceased. The hollow was hid den from her where she stood, but when she had moved on a few steps, which she did after a momentary pause, she saw Anthony 'standing beside his horse, examining one of its hoofs, into which a stone had evidently found its way. He had not heard lier steps, and she moved slowly down the slope of the road towards him. She was only a few paces from him when he let the hoof fall and straightened himself, putting his knife in his pocket. A great lime spread its branches over the road, but the light fell freely thrcugh on Clare, as he looked up and saw her. The change' that time had wrought In her glowing beauty was visible to him in that first glance. But, changed as she was, he knew her instantly, though he stood 6taring at her as if it Was a ghost that had suddenly ap peared before him instead of a living wom...

That the ladies attend in numbers at Dry Eiver to watch the football practices, or rather the players; and That a Cobargo young man has contracted a habit of attending also, but devotes Ins titae'explaining the game to the' girls1—and" enjoys it. That a Cobargo footballer,: who went in for play with the Dry Hiver men (who are justiflarning the game) .was. tossed in the air by one of the players and whan the fallen one got hie breath he was "asked ;by the new chum—" "Wasn't,he off-side?"
