Death of Mr. William Cullen. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 30 June 1899
Death of Mr. William Cullen I By the death of Mr. W. Oullen, which took place about midnight on Friday last, the district loses one of the few of those settlers who battled with stout hearts against the difficulties incidental to pioneer work in this colony. These men do work hardly second to the statesmen patriots who devote their time and rare ability to moulding and guiding tbe destinies of a nation. In fact, the two national developments go band in hand—the intelligent, stout-hearted pioneer settler, iar removed from friend or relative, subduing Nature's wild wastes, and the senator in the legisla tive halls devising laws for the com fort, progress and peaceful government of the people. And the late Mr. Oullen was not of those who came to this country with the advantage of influential friends and the assistance of a subbtantial banking account. Born in Somersetshire (Eng ) of yeo man parents, he, at an early age, fol lowed the occupation of a farmer, at which he became most prof...

WHEN PARLIAMENT MEETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 7 July 1899
WHEN PARLIAMENT MEETS It is expected that the position of the Government will be challenged immediately the Houses meet. Mr. Barton is understood to be averse to hostilea ction until Federation has been got rid of. Meanwhile, h owever, the majority of members on the Opposition side, as well as those of the Minister ialists who believe that they bave been betrayed by the Government over - the Federation question, are talking of coalescing for an early attack on the Administration, The Opposition as a body is diseatiB6ed with Mr- Barton's leadership. He iB at present the chief of only a limited section, and that a section with which the majority of the party is quite out of sympathy. Mr. Barton's end of the party is limited to Mr. See, Mr. Wise, Mr. Copeland, Mr. D. Thompson, and a few others who have been from the first associated with the Any-price movement. Even if he made an attempt on the Treasury benches, he would not have the sup port of Ministerialists who have broken with the...

THE TRANSVAAL TROUBLE. Probability of Australians being Sent to the Seat of War Major-Genera;. French, speaking to a Sunday Ttmee'repiveentalive recently, with reference to ; the trouble in the Transvaal, said that he fully expected at any moment to hear that war _had been declired. "" ' There are a great many English men there,' he continued, ' and it it not at all likely that they will con. tinue to remain in servitude and pay taxes without having anything to say in the government of the country. No; I hardly t hink Krujer will back down for he is a very obstinate man, and'the Boers themselves are eaten up with conci-it. They think that becausa th»y inflicted defeat on British troops before that they can do the same again ■ Do you Anticipate that the fighting wou'd be very severe.' &lt; Yes, very ; and though England, of course, would win in tho end, before mat ers hud'tinished there is no doubt that the'losses ou our side would be very heavy.'

CENTRAL TILBA GONCERT. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 7 July 1899
CENTRAL TILBA GONCERT. (From a Correspondent.) If the Central Tilba Tennis Club had reason to be satisfied with the ball on Friday evening, the concert on the fol lowing night should have gladdened the hearts of the promoters, for the Temperance Hall was packed in every parb, and many had to be content with standing throughout the entire }«r formance. The programme was a varied one.and some capital numbers wen; rendered, a nnmber of visitors contri bating materially to ^excellence of j tbe evening's entertainment. Several . pprfdftoera were recalled, and all through the programme met with tokens of approval. Mr. J". H. Crapp acted as chairman. Mrs- Hardy (piano) and Mr. Alfy (violin^ contri buted tbe initiatory item in exquisite style and were rewarded with rounds of applauEe which seemed very like an encore, the performers, however, did not re-appear.

MACDONALD OF 'OMDURMAN. A Highland Soldier and his Stirring Career. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 7 July 1899
MACDONALD OF ' 01JDUEMAN. &. Highland Soldier and his Stir i .ring Career. [N Uie ancient days, the Highland clans, when they could find no better way, fought to keep their hands in. Much martial romance has gone with Highland blood, and the latest foot note to that story is the career of Colonel Macdonald. At 17 lie began with the Gordon Highlanders, that wonderful regiment which the btauti ful Duchess kissed into being. At 46 he is a full colonel of the British Army, an A.D.O. to the Queen, a C.B., and what not. He is broad of chcst, but f ever he puts on all his medals and orders, there will not be much room to spare. The whole figure is shapely, sinewy, the kind of framework that the mind governing it oan take any where and do anything with.' It Gis grace, distinction, all those attribated which you mean when you speak of style. There is a Southern idea 1:1)at Highlanders, as a race, are passing tall men, and at a Northern gathering you will hear the exclamation, ' What ...
He Fought For Dreyfus. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 7 July 1899
For Dreyfus The credit of Captain Dreyfus' rehabi litation is firstly due to his noble wife. Then to Maitre Demange, the grfflt counsel who has a gisted t he la&lt;1y to have the case re-opened. This clever man has entered into the matter with the same degree of enthusiasm that distinguished Dr. Kenealy in the Tich borne case. Since the Czar of Russia requested rhe Government of France to consider the circumstances of the unhappy captain's trial he has practi cally worktd at it solely, avoiding other business and employing upon it the whole of his skill and taients. It was he who did tin neceuary w >rk to have the hAnd writing on the bor dereau pronounced a forgery. This, as we kno*, was the beginning of the end, and the end is not reached yet. It is said in the cabins that Russia and England consider that France haa re habilitated herself in restoring "Drey fu« his unif >rm and rank and in grant ing him a new trial. Thii'is, hardly so as such a crime as Fiance com mit...
