Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
Topics of the Week. &nbsp; The battle is won and the path cleared to Australian unity. The results published half-hourly from this office on Tuesday night and de- tailed to-day show a victory for the national cause about which there can be no possible cavil or doubt. Wed- nesday's Daily Telegraph was awaited with more interest than any issue of that enterprising serial work of political fiction for some time. Its editor seems inclined to take American advice and flee into the wilderness of Hepzibah and gnaw a file — his own — where the lion roareth and the whang- doodle mourneth. Our Councillors have decided to tackle once more the question of the excessive rates of freight to Cobar and petition the Commissioners for a through rate. The move is one in the right direction. But as the Commis- ioners visited Cobar on their western tour of inspection the very afternoon of the day on which this course was agreed on, it seems the least thing of a pity that our Councillors did not ...

The Pastoral Industry. FEEDING THE SHEEP, AT MERYULA. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Pastoral Industry. &nbsp; FEEDING THE SHEEP, &nbsp; AT MERYULA. &nbsp; On Tuesday last a representative of this journal visited Meryula Station when the courteous manager showed him over the two vast camps where dry and breeding ewes, respectively, &nbsp; are being fed to carry them over the drought. There are 20,000 ewes at present lambing with no other feed than felled scrub, and getting on pretty well. Our representative's attention, however, was given to the feeding camps. At the first of these, some distance south of the railway line, and alongside Knight's tank, 10,000 hogget ewes are being fed. A quarter of a mile square has been fenced in with a strong though tem- porary fence of straight sapling stakes and four wires, about three feet high, and costing, without price of wire, about £8 10s per mile. The inc...
Telegrams. SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
Telegrams. SYDNEY. Friday. The Treasurer says the revenue continues to show very satisfactory results from the 1st to the 17th of the month. There was an increase of £94,000 compared with the corres- ponding period of last year. He is sanguine the balance will be on the right side at the end of the current financial year, and denies the rumour that it is intended to impose further protective duties, adding that no such step is financially necessary. A aged man named Fox, well-known in the city, suicided in the office of Mr Slattery, solicitor, yesterday, by cut- ting his throat with a razor.

The Band, playing the Dead March, took the lead, and then came about 200 persons walking four deep. The hearse was next, and then came about twelve cyclists and a score of vehicles. The Rev. Father Tracy officiated at the grave.

Before proceeding with the general meet- ing, a special meeting passed a resolution rescinding the motion which provided for a portion of the unemployed vote being spent on clearing the dam site This was partly &nbsp; in consequence of the distance of that place from the homes of the unemployed consider- ing that they would have only two days work a week, and partly on account of cor- respondence given further on, which threat- ens some delay to the waterworks.

THE INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
THE INQUEST. The inquest took place at Thomas's Terminus Hotel on Tuesday afternoon before Mr Coroner Brown, and a jury consisting of Messrs Bailey, (foreman) Manning, Crow, Tomlins, Doughty, Conley, Meek, Kemp, Cooper, Math- ews, Dillon, and J. Conley. After viewing the body the enquiry was commenced. Mr Crow said he would like to view the place where the accident occurred, before hearing evidence. Mr Milne, who appeared in his posi- tion of Inspector of Mines, said this was the usual practice. Some jurymen objected, and, on division, it was decided to hear the evidence. The first witness was, Thos. MacNamara, miner, who said he was employed on the Cobar copper mine; was acquainted with deceased ; &nbsp; witness found deceased about 1 o'clock on Monday morning, after he was injured ; he was then lying on his back in a pass in the 54 fathom level; the moans of deceased first &nbsp; aroused attention; witness was work- &nbsp; ing in a crosscut about 60 feet fr...
Copper Mine Casualty. MAN FALLS DOWN A PASS. SUCCESSION OF ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
Copper Mine Casualty. MAN FALLS DOWN A PASS. SUCCESSION OF ACCIDENTS. The Cobar Copper Mine has been singularly unfortunate during the present year. Accident upon accident has occurred and it does seem as if the finger of fate was hanging unduly long over this otherwise very fortunate &nbsp; &nbsp; mine. At an early hour on Monday morning a young man named David Wilson, about 24 years of age, des- cended a mullock pass between the 15 and 38 fathom levels. Nothing more of Wilson's actions were known until groans from the 54 fathom level attracted the attention of men work- ing near by. He was found in an un- conscious condition, suffering from injuries which, if he was in his ordin- ary mental way, would have been ex- crutiatingly painful. Full details of the affair, as far as is, or ever will be known, may be had by a perusal of the inquest report which appears below. Wilson was a steady young fellow, usually careful, and was a great assistance to his mother. He live...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
MINING. Mining operations, in the literal sense of the word, are at a standstill almost. Of course the Copper Mine is not referred to in these remarks. One afternoon during the week our reporter took a turn along the line of reefs, where, despite the drought, a good deal of work is going on. The sounds of the boiler builders' hammers as they rivet the steel sheets of the cyanide vats give the vicinity of the Cobar Gold mines an animated aspect. At the Chesney preparatory work is very evident, but more on that score in another paragraph. The Young Australia mine is now in a very re- plete condition, and at the Occidental cyanide a good number of men are employed. Only rain is wanted to make the line of reefs a veritable bee- hive of industry, and Thursday might give a promising start. The eye of the ordinary person, tra- velling along the main street of Wrightville, is at once attracted by the extraordinarily long poppet legs which rear themselves high into the air over the main shaf...
LATE PARTICULARS. Sydney, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
LATE PARTICULARS. (By Telegraph) Sydney, Friday. &nbsp; &nbsp; It is believed the complete returns will show a majority of 25,000 for the Bill. The Daily Telegraph advocates the policy of no surrender by the Anti- billites. Sir George Turner says an endea- vour should be made to get the Im- perial Parliament to hold a special session in November for the passage of the Federal Constitution. He de- precates any attempt to rush the mat- ter. Mr McMillan has called on Mr Barton, and congratulated him and his friends on the victory. The returns in many cases are not complete. The gross result is : — For the bill ... 106,840 Against ... 82,273
Local Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
Local Football. The Nyngan footballers are not going to go back on their arrangement to meet Cobar on Wednesday week, and the Cobar boys are just as positive that Nyngan shall have a good game and a hotter time. Our boys have not much time in which to prepare for the struggle but a good game should result. The Cobar Club and the Federal Club have decided to amalgamate, and put a combined team in the field. The Cobar Cycle Club has generously decided to allow the footballers the use of their new ground, in consideration of the footballers clearing the ground and putting it in order. The club have also offered to run a bicyele race the same day, so long as the footballers pay expenses. The footballers will charge an entrance fee at the gate, and it is expected that the sum thus received will go a long way towards enter- taining the visitors. A committee of management has been appointed to conduct affairs, and one from each side will select the team. The match is to take place on the a...
Sporting. The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 24 June 1899
Sporting. The Turf. There was an excellent muster at the Turf Club committee meeting on Monday night, when the pleasing fact was elicited that after paying all liabilities the Club has £110 of a surplus. As the present club manage- ment started with a £90 overdraft and spent £70 in improvements, this means a year's profit of £270, which speaks volumes for Mr Secretary Williams and his excellent com- mittee. The meeting considered the holding of the Annual Meeting of the Club in Octo- ber, when it is proposed to hold a three days' meeting and give £400 in prizes besides a suggested 'publican's purse.' It &nbsp; is also in contemplation to make further improvements, especially in regard to horse stalls in the saddling paddock.

Wallace. P. J. Kelly, J. A. Bryce, W. Rodier. M. J. Brown, G. O. Tulloh, and G. H. Officer - a full board.

C. Wal- lace, re various clauses of proposed new Bill dealing with stock, and from the Chief Inspector, as to various formal matters.' &nbsp; &nbsp; The inward correspondence was formally received. It was decided to point out to Narrabri Board that Co- bar was in the western division, and to Mr Ireland that a bonus on crows had been proposed. The various amounts of assessment payable by owners was read to the meeting and it was resolved...
