A Trip to Kurrajong. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

A Trip to Kurrajong. Mr. and Mrs. Garner and party had some excitement on Saturday week last. They were driving over to Kurrajong to assist at a concert there ; all went well till they got into the rough country, and there their horse began to feel the effects of the long trip. The hill climbing was too much, and, after a gallant struggle, the " gee-gee " would not " gee-gee " any further and they had to pad the hoof I for some distance ; and to make it worse, darkness came on and hill after hill was negotiated with increasing difficulty. But at last, as they had began to fancy they would have to form a camp, a friend in need came along and the loan of a freBh horse soon sent them on their way I rejoicing. Mr. Mark Garner sang at a I concert there that nitrht and had n arcat reception. -"Nepean Times."

CRICKET. Union Competition Matches. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

CRICKET. Union Competition Matches. The fourth set of matches in connec- tion with the Hawkesbury District Cricket Union was commenced on Satur- day last, when delightful weather pre- veiled. Richmond established a long lead in their first innings against River- stone, which will be very hard to catch. Kurrajong, playing against Park Villa also knocked up a big score, which will take the latter all their time to over- take. Windsor and Wilberforce met on the former's wicket, and on the first innings Windsor established a lead of 14 runs. Dick Buttsworth, the "fast bowler " (?) was no-balled by the Wind- sor umpire, eight or nine times in succes- sion. Wilberforce protested against it, and left the field for a few minutes, when a big row appeared imminent. However, play was again resumed, and Buttsworth finished the over by bowling underhand. Buttsworth's bowling has been a vexed question for years, and it is admitted by nine out of every ten who have watched him that his trundling i...

The continual damp weather has serious'y affected the honey flow here, and the bee-keepers are a bit crest-fallen after the profitable returns of last year, but should the weather prove fine from now there will be a splendid yield. j The fruit season is starting in real earnest, and our orchardists have c busy time before them.

Ripe old Age. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

Ripe old Age. Under the above heading the following par appeared in the " Clarence River Advocate " on the 10th instant :- The Hawkesbury district, in addition to its fruit, is remarkable for the strong con- stitution of its natives and the great age to which many of them attain. Around the life of one of these remarkables are circumstances which might be woven into a good novel. Mrs. Search, who died recently, at the age of one hundred years, was claimed by her friends to be the oldest native in the colony. When she was quite a young woman compara- tively, her son went away droving, and she lost sight of him for 45 years, and it was only after mutual advertising that they were subsequently re-united ; the young fellow at the time of the re-union was aged only 78 years. Mrs. Search was the mother of 14 children, and her "youngest" daughter, aged 68, was liv- ing with her at the time of her death.

CORNWALLIS. The straw and lucerne crops look splendid at the present time, and this week many heavy|gcrops have been .harvested. Messrs.

PATRIOTIC MEETING AT RICHMOND. A Good Attendance. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

PATRÏOTIC MBETINQ AT RICHMOND. Â Good Attendance. On Monday last at the School of Arts, Richmond, a patriotic meetiog was held, which no doubt will remain long in the minds of those who were present, for no other reason than that of the frenzied patriotism displayed by the audience, who, at every opportunity, burst forth in patriotic songs, and continually drowned the voices of the several speakers. Thc meeting was announced from the pulpitB of the various churches in Eichmond and the surrounding districts, and no doubt the attendance was largely due to the impression created from this source. The committee had arranged a splendid pro gramme, and the announcement of the Mayor (Alderman J. W. Hill)-that the speeches set down were only limited to five minutes-found favor, not only with the audience, but with the ppeakere them selves. The Bichmond orchestra, under the conductorship of Mr. S. Boughton, contributed with the excellent pieces en titled " The Village Festival " and « The Li...

Rational Voting. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

Rational Voting;. IT appears that deputation recently waited upon Mr. Kingston, of South Australia, to urge the appli cation of the Hare-Spenee system of voting to the Federal Elections. This method provides for a matter I which one would think was abso lutely necessary in all methods pf election, but which, as an absolute fact, is absent from the system in this colony, namely effective voting, a system which ensures that the majority of the electors will rule. In this colony if there are more than two candidates for one seat the.votes become "split," and a candidate is often returned who rèpreFf npk áejjjialjy* IT jminörity of tíw jfeA^títífc^^P^fce^. who considered ifhitejtf go to the poll, a proceeding which, owing to Our defective method, often devolves itself into a farce. Many people consider this plea for rational voting only a fad, but it is not, it is simple common sense. It would be rather much to hope to see a reform here before the Federal Elections come off ; under our ...

Hawkesburg Adbocate. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1899. OBITUARY. Sudden Death of Mr. J. J. Fitzpatrick, J. P. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1899. OBITUARY. --.- x Sudden Death of Mr. J. J. Fitzpatrick, J. P. That grim monster Death has this week removed from our midst one of the most respected and use ful residents of the district in the person of Mr. J. J. Fit «patrick. The deceased gentleman's death waa terribly sudden, and came as a shock to his family. Although Buffering acutely for some time, .from what he imagined was indi gestion, deceased was apparently free from pain and in good spirits on retiring to bed on Saturday serening. Qa Sunday morning Miss Fitzpatrick, before proceeding to Mass at 7 o'clock, called to de ceased, and left under the impres sion that he was dressing. After returning, she went to his room, and seeing him still asleep, as she thought, went to arouse him, when to her horror she found he was dead. The sad news soon spread, and messages of sympathy were sent from all quarters. The doctor was immediately sum moned, who gave as his opinion that death had resulted before midn...

Hasty Legislation. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

Hasty Legislation. THE absurdity of rushing parlia mentary business through tn the small hours of the morning was emphatically emphasised in the case of the Early Closing Bill. The Assembly sat until about 5.30 one morning getting the Bill through committee, but when members had a sleep and looked into what they had done, it was fouud necessary to re-commit the measure in order to reconcile certain contradictory provisions, and for other purposes. All that evening was taken up in rectifying mistakes made by mem bers the previous sitting. Mr. Lyne is naturally very anxious to get the measure through, it would be a great feather in his cap ; but it will be interesting to watch how this socialistic democratic measure fares in " another place."

Mr. Coghlan's Position. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

Mr., Coghlan's Position. HAYING carefully read all the pub lished correspondence which has passed between Mr. Coghlan and the Attorney-General, the innocent citizen-wilt wonder what it is all about. Beading between the lines a very pjain story is told; Mr. Coghlan evidently had, what the school boys would eal! the big end of the stick, and yet he exhibited sufficient of that discretion which is the better part of valour in not pressing his advantage too far. AB it is at the worst he will have a good stout pension, at the best he will draw £850 a year as Govern ment Statistician. Mr. Wise was bent on getting this great financial authority out of the way but could not do it. He is a member of the Public Service Board, which is a statutory position, and it would take a vote of Parliament to dis possess him. As statistician he is a civil servant, and can only be re moved" by the Public Service Board : hence Mr. Wise had a hard row to hoe, and he was to a con siderable extent successful....

Federal Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

Federal Matters. - MB. SEDDON, Premier of New Zea land, in a recent speech is reported to have said that it is absolutely necessary for his colony to join the Federation so far as a customs Union and a defence system are concerned, but that for other pur poses they should remain as they were. This is probably the true policy for New Zealand, and for Australia; it is doubtful if New Zealand could join the Federation entirely now under the Constitution, for that instrument was framed under the distinct supposition that that colony would take no part in it, and the Bill was submitted to the various States also on that sup position. To have representatives from New Zealand sitting in the Federal Parliament, taking un. limitad part in all the proceedings', joining in debates and voting in divisions, would surely be some what anomalous, Outside those j^paoific mattera which Mr. Seddon mentioned, Customs and Defence, it may be broadly stated that our elster colony has nothing in common wit...

The Union Parliament. .THIS model institution which sets our Legislative Assembly a good example in many points, recently discussed the highly interesting subject of Land Taxation. All phases of political thought were there, the Reidite, the Henry Georgian, the moderate and the unreasoning conservative. Various arguments were adduced with an ability and an eloquence quite equal to the real Parliament, which Bhows that the idea of forming the various Debating Societies into a Union Parliament was a good one. It would be a good thing if a scheme could be arranged to affi i Hate country societies as well ; a team from the Union Parliament recently visited Berry and engaged that town in debate ; this is were the country societies are interested, as they are also in the various literary tournaments, which give increased interest to all members in their various clubs.

M'GRATH'S HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

MATH'S HILL. A race meeting is being arranged to take place here about Christmas time. Mr. T. Maguire tock about 40 tons ol splendid hay from his crop of oats of IS acres recently. Mr. George Gough, our local boniface, is the possessor of a pair of leg-irons as used in the days of convictism, which were unearthed up country recently. Mrs. Hutchison, of the Pitt Town Hoad, has one of the best collection of fowls to be seen anywhere in the district, including all the choice breeds. The matter of having a public school here, has been one of the leading topics during the past week, and we understand that some move to urge the Department to erect a building is on the tapis. About two years ago the Government purchased a piece of land containing two acres for the sum of £80 for the purpose of build ing a school theron, ano: went so far as to call tenders for the work, when something turned up to prevent the work being carried ont, with the result that loeal folk were deprived of their lon...
