BRASSKNOCKER. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 June 1899
BRASSKNOCKER. (From a Correspondent.) Probably very few people know what . is gov:>'c/ on at Brassknocker, yet min it% 'hough in a small way at present, , is liWely to attract considerable atten tion before long. Good, honest work is being done, each as one expects , from the real genuine miner ; and if the ; place can only escape the attention of the cronk mining sharks, it is not unlikely that the country round the Brassknocker, will at no distant date ; become the scene of much legitimate and profitable mining enterprise. Certainly if any subsequent additions to the field are made of the same stuff as the present pioneers, it will be thoroughly tested on the spot, and not on the Sydney Mining Exchange. Already considerable work has been done, and the prospects are so good that the Government has readily granted aid to one claim-the Hunts man—owned by Mr, William Thomas. This party made the discovery which led to the present stir on the field. Mr. Thomas ha» done mnch honest wo...

The Sentiment of Federation. (For the Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 June 1899
The Sentiment of Federation (For the Chronicle.) It has become q«,*te the proper thing m Anti-federal quarters to sneer at sentiment, and consider it as an ele ment in the quention which deserves ; no consideration. And yet it is true tbat nothing great or good was ever 1 yet don© without sentiment. Patriot- ' tan is a sentiment, the love of hearth »nd home, bat yet it is generally thought to be worth more than a con- 1 temptuous sneer. We can easily un derstand that men, who were born else, &lt; where and have used Australia only as a mine, where they may dig wealth, ' should laugh at those who cry aloud for nationhood. These old and wrinkled cynics, hardened by the long pursuit of the Money.God, can scarcely be expected to enter into those nobelr feelings which actuate many engaged in ; this fight. But practical people as we are, it is very notioeable to what an extent the nobler ideals actuate the bulk of the electors. This is particular ly to be observed in the younger m...
MERRIGUNDAH (From a Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 June 1899
NERRIGUNDAH &nbsp; &nbsp; (Prom a Correspondent). Since my last there has been nothing of importance to report, which fact accounts for my long silence. Shafts are plentiful enough but I have not &nbsp; had the misfortune to fall down one, j as supposed by your " They Sayeth." The newly formed Progress Com mittee have held several meetings, and applications been made for many pres sing woiks. The construction of a road from Nerrigundah to Bullock Greek and the erection ot a new Police Station have been pressed on the pro per departments, and it is hoped these very neccessary works will be carried out. Lively discussion took place with reference to the proposal to ask the Mines Department for larger leases on the Gulph Creek for tbe purpose of hydraulic sluicing. The principal ar- gument against the extension in the area of these leases, is, that the Creek would probably pass into the hands of one or two large Companies, and thuB deprive many. miners of the ch...
Cricketers' Ball at Dignam's Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 June 1899
Cricketers' Ball at Dignam's Creek. &nbsp; The ball in aid of the Dignam's Creek Cricket Club came off on Friday last, and, financially, was hardly the &nbsp; success that was expected. Perhaps the recent heavy rains and the dark night accounted for this. We think that entertainments, especially in the bush &nbsp; districts, should be held on moonlight nights. Cobargo was well represented, but other outside places did not con- tribute in any way. The dance was held in Mr. O'Neill's room, which was tastefully decorated with evergreens. The music (violin and concertina) was provided by Messrs. P. White and E. O'Neill, and was all that could be desired. Messrs. J. Riley and R. O'Neill were efficient Ms.C. The refreshments provided by the ladies were of a very superior quality. The secretary, Mr. A. C. Stewart, was most active in his attention to the guests, and to his energy must be attributed in a great measure, the success of the evening, for, though &...

Referendum returns will not be com pleted for several days, about thirty six electorates are still incomplete. The lateBb returns to hand give 105,545 for the Bill, and 81,564 against The feeling of the opponents to the Bill is now cooling down and there seems a general desire to bow to the inevitable, the" will of the majority, although one or two enthusiasts speak of continuing the struggle in another place. The Anglican Archbishop and Car dinal Moran both emphatically deny the allegation made to the effect that the victory of the Bill was due to a conspiracy of the churches. Commercial men recognise that...

FOOTBALL MATCH. Cobargo defeated by Centrilba. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 June 1899
FOOTBALL MATCH. Cobirgo defeated by Centrilba. Cobargo Olub, playing the second match of the season here^ was defeated by Centrilba by 9 points to 6. The Cobargo representatives, as was expec ted, were totally out of condition vi hen compared with their opponents. From this it will be understood, that the Cobargo players did not play so well together as would have been the case had they practised, while the visiting team was a splendid combination of 'wind' and muscle, and every man played in his place. Cobargo has a splendid lot of forwards, but Centrilba had the advantage of the back players, who did some spirited kicking. Mr. Ted Bate took charge of the game, and this paper is of opinion that his decis ions deserved a better reception at the hands of the Cobargo players, Foot 1 bailers are only too ready to blame a referee if his decision is not agreeable, while he is generally treated by the I opposing club as a personal enemy. 1 We will not further comment on the , conduct of t...

DEEAETUEE OF MR A- SAXELBY Complimentary Smoke Concert. The Smoke Concert, complimentary to Mr. Allan Saxelby, advertised for Monday evening last, was held in Gra ham's Assembly Rooms, and was an unqualified success in every way. The attendance numbered about forty, and every interest in the district was lepresented. There were visitors present from Tilba, Bega, and Mornya. The spread was set out in ho3t Gra- i ham's best style. As soon as the guests showed signs of inward satisfac tion, tbe chairman, Mr. William Boot, rapped the company to order, and' in the orthodox loyal manner submitted the toast of '• The Queen," The 6ong, "The Romany I^bs," sung by W. Boot, was the next item. The toast of the evening, " Our Guest," was then proposed by the chairman. He said he fully appreciated tbe distinction of pre siding on the present ocpasion, when they had met to do honor to one of the most deservedly popular, men that has ever resided in the district. Some times, the testimonial busines...
SENSATIONAL ATTEMPIED SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 June 1899
SENSATIONAL ATTEMPrED SUICIDE. The man Alexander Everett, who at tempted to take his life on ^Tuesday at Albury is still alive. The attempt was made under sensational circumstances. The man, who was subject to epileptic fits, lived with his mother and sisters. Last night there were in the house, besides Everett, his mother and mar lister, who lives close by. Mrs Everett was in the room, while Mrs. Groom and her brother were in another, engaged in conversation. At the-time Everett seemed calm and ra tionBl, but with stealthy suddenness he. drew a razor from his pocket and swiftly slashed himself three times .across the throat with it. In a mom ent the blood was spurting all over the room, Mrs. Groom's screams brought her mother in, and also attracted the Attention of a neighbour. When Mrs. Everett and Mrs. Larkins appeared on the soene, Everett was lying perfectly still, and£8 there was a frightful wound in the neck, from whioh the blood flowed ina-thiek stream, Mr. Larkins ran to th...
