THE BANQUFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 8 July 1899

THE BANQUET, At 8 o'clock a banquet was tendered to the visitors at the Great Western Hotel, by the Cobar footballers. The Mayor, Mr P. Snelson, was unable to take the chair until 9 o'clock, owing to the fact that an important Council meeting was being held. Until the time stated, Mr George Grey occupied the position. Mr T. Longworth (Town Club Patron) occupied the vice- chair. Altogether about 50 persons sat down to a really first-class spread. There was a very large variety of meats, jellies, fruits, etc., on two long tables, and the whole affair was one highly creditable to Mr Byrne, pro- prietor of the Hotel. The first toast was proposed by Mr Grey, being 'The Visitors.' He made a very suitable speech. He admired the friendly spirit that prevailed, and he felt sure the visitors would go away pleased with their visit. The toast was then drunk with musical honors. Mr Freeman (Nyngan Captain) re- sponded. He and his team were well pleased with their visit; and he could promise Coba...

Sporting. The Turf. COBAR COMMITTEE MEETS. A Committee meeting of the Cobar Turf Club was held in the Great Western Hotel on Monday evening, Mr J. Hunt (President) in the chair. Present: — Messrs Morrison, Doughty, R. Hunter, Leiper, G. H. Thomas, Chas E. Thomas, W. H. Bannister, Fred Woods, T. Byrne, and W. Williams (Secre- tary.) A letter was read from the Bourke Club regarding the proposal to have their meet- ings about the same time of the year, when the horses from one would be able to go straight to the other. The Bourke Club was perfectly agreeable to meet the Cobar Club as far as they could. At the time of writing they were not in a position to state the date of their meeting or about the amount of prize money which would be given. The secretary also promised to assist as much as he could in the movement to get all the Western clubs to act in harmony regarding their race meetings. Mr Thomas moved that the names of Messrs Toy, Chesney, and Cohn be retired from the race course...

Topics' of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 8 July 1899

Topics of the Week. A great deal has been said at differ- ent times about that jumble of irre- concileable rates set out in the railway rate book ; and on the other hand country newspapers have written much on the system adopted by our leaders of men generally in the glori- fication of Sydney at the expense of the long-suffering countrymen. It seems to the thoughtful man that these two matters go hand in hand, the one a means to an end — said end being Sydney's glorification previously referred to. The railways of New South Wales are supervised by com- missioners, whose integrity and ability for the position has resulted in a satisfactory service. Then, after ad- mitting this all important point about qualification, it is only a fair deduction that they would make the rates on the trunk line sufficiently high to be payable to the state. Coming to the   point of our argument now we find that on 3rd class goods the rate from Sydney to Cobar is £7 per ton, the distance bei...

BREVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 8 July 1899

BREVITIES. Friday morning was foggy.   Mr Reid is resting in Riverina.   Two 'drunks ' were sentenced to     seven days each on Friday.   The Commercial Hotel is being   painted. It looks quite gay.

Down at the Sheep Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 8 July 1899

Down at the Sheep Show. (By our Special Reporter.) A Cobar ' Herald ' man lent the lustre of his presence to the New South Wales Sheep Breeder's Association's fifth annual show. Get on quite as well without him?   Well, of course it might, but it's always well to be on the sure side, and conse- quently, to be brief, the 'Herald' was     there. A very excellent show it was, and it attracted many visitors from the west, including Mr Philip Oakden, of Lerida, who expressed himself as delighted with some of the stud stock, especially the Tasmanian champions. Grand Champion- ship Awards were given to the following:   Ram — Clark Bros-, N.S.W.; Ewe— Hon. S. McCaughey, N.S.W. ; Longwool ram and ewe — S. Newman ; Shortwool ram and ewe— B. A. Cutler. A peculiar and   noteworthy feature of the show was the   daily attendance of 41 students from the   Technical and Hawkesbury Colleges, under the supervis...

Local Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 8 July 1899

Local Football. The footballers have a nice credit balance after their afternoon's amusement and ban- quet. It is intended to reserve tho money to defray the expenses of a team to Nyngan at an early date. The local footballers are to be congratu- lated on the way they carried out the ar- rangements for the sports held on Wednes- day afternoon. In the bicycle portion of this they were nobly supported by Mr Pass and some of the committemen. The affair   passed off most successfully. Certainly two   accidents did occur, but these are liable at any time. A fine should be inflicted on all owners of dogs found on the cycle ground. The public were very loyal, rising to the oc- casion in a manner creditable to the town. A paragraph appearing under this head-   ing last week did not find grace with the Nyngan footballers, who rather unjustly un- burdened their wrath on the Cobar club, ir- respective of the fact that said club does not 'run' this column....

Telegrams. SYDNEY. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 8 July 1899

Telegrams. SYDNEY.   Friday. A Tasmanian ram was sold to Mr Simpson, a Riverina pastoralist, for the sensational figure of 1500 guineas. At an important meeting under the auspices of the Farmers and Settlers Association, resolutions were unani- mously adopted in favor of co opera- tion amongst the farmers, and the bringing of consumers and producers more closely together. After a gene- ral discussion it was decided that a Co-operative Company be considered formed when 2,500 shares had been applied for. Applications have al- ready been received for 1500. A workman employed at Reid's sawmill, Grafton, came into contact with the saw, which completely cut away the side of his face, including the cheekbone, an eye, and a portion of the skull. The Victorian Parliament will ad- journ on Tuesday next for a fortnight, to enable members to visit their con- stituents, and speak on the Enabling Bill.

MINING. SIGNALLING IN MINES. MINE MANAGERS MEET. AND ADOPT NEW CODE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 8 July 1899

MINING. SIGNALLING IN MINES. MINE MANAGERS MEET. AND ADOPT NEW CODE. Some considerable time ago a move- ment was started by Mr John Hunt to have a uniform code of signalling on mines in this district. At present, a miner on leaving one mine had to become accustomed to the new code on the next mine he worked at. There should be one simple method of getting over this difficulty, and the best code for one mine would be equally ad- vantageous to the other mines. A week or so ago a preliminary meeting was held, and a Committee appointed to draft what they thought to be the most suitable code. On Saturday evening last there was a meeting of mine managers at the Great Western Hotel to further dis-   cuss the matter. The following were present : — Mr T. Longworth (Copper Mine), Mr Roberts (Chesney), Mr Fox (Cobar Gold Mines), Mr J. Hunt (Young Australia), Mr Forland (Great Western), and Mr J. Davis (Occidental). Mr Milne (Inspector of Mines), was also in attendance, and gave va...

Nymagee. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899

Nymagee. (From our Correspondent.) Good rain has fallen here and in the district since Saturday for pastoral and farming purposes, although not heavy enough to fill all the tanks, which, to a great extent, need re plenishing. The Great Nymagee Copper mine is going in full swing once more, on the few feet of water that are in the tank, which supply is very limited, but the indications are favorable, and a larger supply is anticipated. Tho all comers Cornish style wrest ling tournament was concluded on Saturday last, resulting in tho first prize (£5) being awarded to P. Mur phy, after a long and tedious struggle with J. Kennemore who came in for 2nd prize (£8), and D. Simon 3rd (£2). The tournament throughout was a grand success ; so much so that two more were immediately arranged. Mr McGrath (of the Cardiff Arms Hotel) gave £5 to be distributed in prizes, viz. : — 1st £4, 2nd £1, for an all-comers' tournament. The other takes the form of a novice tourna ment, 1st prize £2, 2nd prize ...
