Windsor Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 22 August 1902
Windsor. Bridge. It may not be generally known that Wednesday last was the 28th anniversary of the opening of Wind sor bridge. We gleaned this infor mation from Mr. John Ford, who has lived near the bridge for over 31 years, during which time some great changes have taken place. The bridge -that, is the old one, of which the lower cylinders of the present bridge formed part-was commenced on July 13, 1871, and was completed and officially opened on August 20, 1874. During the course of its construction the district was subjected to thirteen floods, and owing to alterations made by the Government, the contractors were kept on the work for over three yean. At the official opening, one of the largest gatherings ever seen in the historic borough assembled, and the event was celebrated with great eclat The Hon. J. Sutherland de clared the bridge officially opened. In the afternoon a banquet was held at the School of Arts, and the school children were entertained in what is now known as Fa...
Mulgrave Pump. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 22 August 1902
The amotmt^fwiter drawn from the publie well by teams and others is very great. Some few weeks ago a sum of money^was subscribed by the users of the^jBll to renovate it. The holes rountt about have been filled with metal Abdjsand, which was taken out of the well. That is all that has been done to it. In a very ahort time things. $¿11. be woree than ever. The wastewater still runs in the same place, keeping the old holes wet and muddy.;; Had the ground been made to slope 4own the hill in front of the trough, instead of out, this difficulty would haye been evaded. The bottom valve has not been acting for months; the. hose pipe is too short and worn oui, and the tap leaks badly. Could not the proverbial "stitch in time'J ]be made now? It is some time since the money was collected, and noone seemB to know how much or where it has gone. Is it usual for public money to be spent without the people knowing how? Ought not the trustees publish a statement, or at least, tell the people what ha...
The Richmond Bridge. COMES BEFORE THE THE HOUSE. MINISTER'S MOTION CARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 22 August 1902
The Richmond Bridge. COMES BEFO-HE THE HOUSE. MINISTER'S MOTION CARRIED. In the Assembly on Wednesday night, The Minister for Works moved, That it is expedient that the con struction of a bridge over the Hawkerbury River at Richmond, at a cost not exceeding £22,000, as referred by the Legislative As sembly to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works, be carried out, subject to the modification recommended by the said committee." He said the work was very much needed. The old bridge over the Hawkesbury at Richmond had been there for 43 years, and now showed signs of decay. It was not strong enough for the heavy traffic passing over it. The original proposal was for a high level bridge to cost £60,000. Then there was a proposal for a bridge to cost £40,000, but the Public Works Committee recom mended that the cost should not be so high. Mr. J. C. L. Fitzpatrick said that¡ while not opposiug a bridge at Richmond, he thought the prac ticability of constructing a railway to t...
A Trip to the Land of the Rising Sun. XV. KIOTO. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 22 August 1902
A Trip to tlje Land of tlje Rising Sun. [BY J. H. MITCHELL ] xv. KIOTO. We reached the above city without incident, and immediately put up at the Kioto Hotel. Having seen a great many temples and shrines during our perigrinations, and hav ing yet to visit the city of temples (Nikvio), we decided not to visit any of these attractions here, but to de vote the short time at our disposal tó places of more interest to us. The shops in Kioto are perhaps the most attractive in Japan, especially th£» pottery, porcelain, embroidery, and* cut velvet for which that place is noted, and had my purse been a, little larger, I fancy I would have j made many purchases. j . In the afternoon we visited screen and embroidery and cut velvet manufactories, and we Baw some magnificent samples of these highly artistic productions. Screens, both embroidered and hand-painted, used for entrances and room ornaments, edged with exquisitely pretty lacquer frames, and others in artistically carved wood, were show...

The N.S.W. Lancers. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 22 August 1902
The N.S.W. Lancers. Some considerable change is to be made in military matters under the Commonwealth re-arrangement. Ooh Burns, in a recent speech, eaid : Great changes were about to be made. The regiment had now a total strength of 688, but some squadrons were to be taken from it, and in place of the present Veil-known regiment, they would have two email regiments of 268 each, which would be armed with rifles carried on. the troopers' backs, like the Mounted Rifles. The regi ments would be termed the 1st and 2nd Light Horse Lancer Regiment, to Bhow that they had been drawn from the old Lancer Regiment. The members of these regiments would not carry swords, but would retain their lances. Therefore there would be no room in the regiments being formed out of the old regiment for the re turned members. The Mounted Rifles, whioh also would be. kjiowi thought there should be room"4À the two Mounted Riñes for all their ¡ojd comrades. He simply mentioned those details, as everything at pr...
