Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 17 June 1899
Topics of the Week. The small public meeting held in the Cobar Council Chambers on Mon- day evening to deal with the water question took a sensible course. To put the matter briefly, it thanked the &nbsp; Government for its kind offer of pure water at 10s per 1000 gallons and de- cided to accept that offer if such ac- ceptance became necessary. Mr Al- derman Morrison, who made the prin- cipal speech, dwelt on the necessity for ratepayers to tell the Council ex- actly what water they required. We recommend ratepayers to read this Alderman's sound practical remarks as reported in another column and 'when found make a note of' them &nbsp; — according to the practice and precept of Captain Cuttle. Cobar has been extremely apathetic over the Federation question, and we sincerely hope that it will shake itself into wakefulness by next Tuesday and that voters will grasp what may be the opportunity of a lifetime — the oppor- tunity to make a nation and to raise the tone and ...

The Federal Bill. MR P. G. QUINN, M.P. SUPPORTS THE BILL. ITS DEMOCRATIC ASPECT. THE KEY TO AUSTRALASIAN GREATNESS. N.S.W. MUST GAIN. On Wednesday evening Mr P. G. Quinn, member for Bligh Division, delivered an address supporting the Federal Bill, in Crow's Hall. Mr N. Morrison occupied the chair, and Mr Snelson (Mayor) also had a seat on the platform. Before introducing the speaker, the Chairman asked for a patient hearing, and added that he felt sure they would give it, for out of the scores of times he had asked for the same thing for other speakers he had never been disappointed. When the meeting commenced there were less than 100 people in the hall. Applause greeted Mr Quinn, who is a tall gentleman possessing a com- manding presence and a clear though not fluent style. He believed that every intelligent elector throughout the colony was now familiar with the broad lines of the Constitution. The question was before them last year, and now they had to vote on it again. The count...

This was responded to by Messrs J Hunt, Mathieson, Clarke, Lyons, and Griffith (on &nbsp; behalf of Mr Ecir). The health of the losers &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; was proposed by Mr Hunt, and replied to by &nbsp; Messrs Bates and Burns (the latter on behalf of Mr Richardson, of White Cliffs). At this stage Mr J.

Mount Drysdale. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 17 June 1899
Mount Drysdale. We learn by the courtesy of Man- ager Williams that no water was caught at Mt Drysdale during the late &nbsp; rain, which was very steady and soak- &nbsp; ing so that the water did not run. Silence reigns, in consequence of &nbsp; the drought, at the Drysdale and new &nbsp; Eldorado, but the contractors are busy on the cyanide works and it is hoped they will be ready in nine weeks or so. The plans are ready for enlarging the mine tanks on the properties named so as to cope with future droughts. There are 14ft of water in the Government Tank, one of the best supplies in tho district. Work is proceeding on the Just-in- Time and the Proprietary, on which last McPherson and party have an excellent show.
Cobar Witer TEMPORARY ARRANGEMENTS. GENEROUS GOVERNMENT OFFER [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 17 June 1899
Cobar Water &nbsp; TEMPORARY ARRANGEMENTS &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; GENEROUS GOVERNMENT OFFER In last issue of this paper a meeting was reported at which it was decided to ask the Government for the free carriage of water &nbsp; by train to Cobar, in consequence of the water famine then apparently impending. Since that time a little rain has fallen, encouraging people to hope for more, and feeling about water prospects isn't at the heat it was. However, replies were of course &nbsp; received, and the Council considered them on &nbsp; Saturday, with the result that another public &nbsp; meeting was convened for Monday night. &nbsp; It was too late to advertise it and the bell- &nbsp; &nbsp; man only was employed to make the meeting &nbsp; public. The night was cold and under 20 &nbsp; ratepayers attended, only about three alder- &nbsp; men being present. The Mayor (Alderman Snel...
