A very sympathetic reception was accorded to the Corowa representatives on all sides, and thev feel confident of their efforts being productive of much good. They are indebted to tho local member, Mr. R. T. Ball, who was unremitting in his attention and assistance. Having i a practical representative of lhe farm- j ing conimunity with them iu the per- j soil of Mr. John Salmon was found highly advantageous. During the course of an interview the Minister ; for Lauds, Mr. J. Ashton, expressed j the opinion that land in the Corowa j district was eiiual to any in the ! State. As a. result of their visit, the ] Minister for Works (Mr. Ijee) will j visit tho district during the recess, i It has also been proposed to hold a ! closer settlement conference in Go- | rowa, and no doubt this sensible | suggestion will he taken up. ...

At Illabo Picnic Races on Saturday, says a writer iu the Oootamundra ' Herald,' a number of people got on to Barlock at the nice price of 2 to 1 iu the principal event, but these liberal odds were only obtainable from oue bookmaker (a stranger to the dis trict), aud the majority of backers were satisfied with the even money offered by the repuUiblc pencillers present. Strangely enough, those who accepted tho shorter price were tbe best off in the end, for after Barlock had materialised, they had no diffi culty in collecting their wagers. Not so, however, with luose who got theTiijf odds. Their ' man ' was rather short when the pay-out time came, and each one who pre sented his ticket hud it, together with. his own money, aud the balance written ou it, returned to him.

Obituary. MR. J. H. WANT, K.C. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 25 November 1905
Obituary. MB. J. H. WANT, K.C. Mr. J. H. Want, K.C., died in Syd ney at an early hour on Wednesday morning. He had been in failing health for a considerable time, and had been gradually withdrawing him self from political matters and pro fessional work. A month ago a trip abroad was in contemplation, but the inroads upon his health were so great that the trip was abandoned. Mr. Want was one of the leaders of the New South Wales bar, in which he had won his position by close study, and by his qualities of energy and frankness. These qualifies, combined with vigorous independence, lie car ried into his political career. No better instance of the personal char acteristics of tho man coukl be adduced than his opposition to the Federal Constitution Bill, and in some of the principal cases in which he was con cerned as advocate. Mr. Want was a son of tho late Jlr. Randolph J. Want, of lhe firm of Wnntand John son, solicitors. Born in Sydney in 1840, he was one of a numerous family, three ...

THE VALUE OF MANURE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 25 November 1905
THE VALUE OP MANUBR TO THE EDITOR. SlR. — At a social gathering of farmers some few weeks ago, held in Covowa, the occasion being the presentation -of a gold medal to Messrs. Clinton Bros,, by Mr. Shirley, as the most successful prize takers of wboiit at the jjasfc Agricultural shows, Mr. Shirley seems to put rather too much faith in his supor phosate as the only means of salvation for the wheat-growers. I would like to draw bis attention, aud that of other prominent agricultura lists to a crop growing on the farm of Mrs. Green, Slianuonvale, and also another in close proximity to it grown under the dust blanket systemof cultivation. Bothpaddooks have been under cultivation for the past forty years without manure. Hoping you will find room for publication in next issue. — Yours truly, ' OBSERVER.'

With reference to the erection of ladies baths, this was never men tioned in our interview with the Minister for Works. I believe a letter was written by Mr. F. C.

Iu connection with the appointment. of a Police Magistrate for Corowa, the members of lhe deputation did .not wait on tbe Minister for Justice, but had a talk with Mr. Ball, and he promised to use his best endeavours to comply with our request. I write this for the information of the public, as the other statements are very misleading. Apologising for trespassing ou your valuable space, — Yours, etc. THOS. PARKIN,. Mayor.
