According to a late promise made by tho Premier to Mr. Fitzpatrick, M.P., it is not unlikely that the practice., of holding a District Court at Juneo will be resumed. Tho young woman Bridget Dwyer, | who, as reported in our last issue, was Springdalo, Cootamundra, and who it was thought was making in the direotion of Gundagai, where she formerly lived, was found on Friday afternoon at Salt Clay Creek, a few miles south of Cootamundra. She seems to have travelled but twenty miles in a fortnight, yet it was difficult to trace her. People complain that several horses have suddenly disapproved from Gun dagai lately. Mr. Barnes, M.P., has written to say that the Minister for Justice has con sented to the Soldiers' Memorial being I'rcctad in the Courthouse enclosure, the site suggested is the plot of ground between the courthouse front and tho steps. Mr. Edwin Jenkins nnderwent~a .small operation in Sydney on Friday 'ast so that the nature of the growth ;it the root of his tongae might be ascertained. Mr. Jenkins, we are sorry to say, i in a far worse condition than was at firstanticipated. He first became aware of his misfortuno about Aixffee ks ago. He is returning to Gnndngai. Tho first application for dredging leases in the Tumut river— that lodged by Mr. E. V. Browuhill — has been refused by the Warden. The granting of tho lease was opposed by the Tumut I residents. ' Yesterday the Indies interested in the Literary Institute Flower Show, which takes place next week, met at Walker's hall, when final arrange ments for the big attraction were made. Everything is going along swimmingly, and the ladies are vieing with eaoh other to see who can achiove the most for the cause. A suggestion was made, that tho stalls should bear military names. Exceptionally warm weather for this period of the year has set in. The thermometer has reached to 90 degreos. Rain has threatened, but has not fallen. In consequence of tho heat sickness is ou the increase, and tho doctors have many cases in hand. Stock averages in the Sydney market : — Southern agents, Junee, 9 bullocks, £10/4/10; -W. Nicholls, Gundagai, 10 bullocks, £7/15/- ; southern agents, Gundagai, 31 bul locks, £0/6/4 ; 10 cows, £9 ; N. Carberry, Gobarralong, 6 cows, £6/9/8 ; J. and'F. McEvoy, Bengarra long, 12 cows, £6/1/4.

Great satisfaction is evineed iu Tumut at the^assage of the Gundagai Tnmut railway bill, and measures have already been taken to reward the wcli-directcd efforts of Mr, Donaldson, M.P., in having the line constructed. Some littlo time ago a carrier pigeon, carryinga message, was libera ted at sea from the steamer Glaucus, six miles south of Ram's Head at 5 a.m., and at 5 p.m. the same day the bird flew on board the schooner Olga, 62 miles north-east of Port Stephens. The distance Bona was, therefore, about 450 miles. To provide facilities for country rcsideiits visiting the metropolis, the Railway Department aunonnoes that a cheap excursion traiu at specially reduced fares will leave Gundagai for Sydney at 5.20 p.m. on 2nd November; by this train cheap excursion tickets At l£d per mile first-class return and Id per milo second-class return, will also bo issued locally to all inter mediate stations. ?* The gold escort, which left Gunda gai on Friday last, 'carried the follow ing parcels Gundagai, 19oz. 17dwt. 21grs ; Adelong, 836oz. lOdwts. llgrs; Tumbarnmbra, 41oz. 2dwts. 2grs. ' Mr. Syl. Crowe, a native of Gobar ralong, wtto a few years ago took np a property at Temora, having decided to remove to Gobarralong, where he has had erected a comfortable home, was giveu a complimentary send-off at Temora on Friday last prior to his departure to his new home. Miss Lizzie McElligott, daughter of Mr. John MoEMigott, has been a sufferer for a short space of time, and on Sunday last Drs. Gabriel and Crooks successfully performed a minor operation upon her. It has been deoided to have the main street of Gundagai watered during the summer months. Ownors of unregistered dogs may expeot to bo proseouted now, as tha 14 days' grace have expired. As a result of a sulky accident last week Mr. W. Kinred, contractor, has been since coufined to bis bed, and is likely to remain there for a couple of weeks. Mr. Kinred had important business to attend to in Sydney this week. It may not ba generally known that the erstwhile champion Australian slogger, Peter Jackson, is at present travelling with Fitzgerald Bros.' circus. Tho sting of Peter's power has vanished. Mr. Barnes, M.P., writes to say he has seon the Minister for Jastico in regard to the. delay in accepting a tendor for the Courthouse improve ments, and tho latter has promised to have the matter settled as soou as the papers are placed before him. At Tracey's hotel, at noon on Wednesday, the privileges in con nection with the approaohing Spring Meeting of the Gundagai Racing Club w'iTTbe offered at auction, together with the rights for the Cycling Carnival on November 9th. Ou Saturday last Mr. W. E. Kyle offered at auction, on account of Mr. J. C. Hunt, Dnral, one acre of valuable building land fronting Ofcway and Punoh streets, aud a block of 132 feet, near the bridge, fronting Sheridan street. Very good prices wore made at auotion, bnt owing to the pro hibitive, reserves the land was with drawn. Subsequently both lota were I bought privately by Mr. A. Hunt for the good figure of £300. Messrs. Givney Bros, have beon un able to take any stono out of their Mount Osborne mine, Brungle, owing to the winter rains having filled up the shaft. However, mining opera tions are to ba resumed by tha party this week. * .

The work of erecting the Roman Catholic Church at Wagragobilly has now been actively entered upon by the contractor, 'Mr. W. Warbrick. The building will be completed about Christinas time.

Mr. A. Cauvarel's 'now cottages ou Mount Parnassus are also nearing completion. It is stated that the regiment of Australian Horss wilt shortly become partially-paid and the members of tho regiment will be armed with Martini* Enfield rifles.

A lad named Sid Maynard, son of Mr. H. Maynard, was admitted to the Hospital on Saturday, suffering from anosmia in its most dangerous form. There is little hope of his recovery. There are now twelve patients in the local Hospital — two above the proper complement.

A meeting of the local Council, of some importance is to be held to-night, when the imbroglie about the town levels will once more be touched npon.

The wheat and hay crops look very promising, grass and water are abandant. The demand for cattle, sheep and horses is very good.

Tho 'Sunday Times' says: — It is a pity we have not a few more such mines as Robinson and Rice's Long Flat mine in our colony ; but there is no knowing what development in gronud adjacent to Messrs. Robinson and Rice's may bring forth ; possibly a rival gold-producer or two exists there.' The undermentioned gold-mining lenses aro uow ready for delivery to the lessees : — Tumut and Adelong Mining District —

A picnic to the school children of St. Stanislaus' is to be given next month. Arrangements are also in progress by the Roman Catholic folk to carry out the usual big bazaar at the aunual Show and Races. Wo understand Father Donovan has a project in view by which sufficient mouey will bo raised to erect the much-desired wall around the church grounds. This work has become imperatively necessary, as the earth has broken away from the old fence at the Homer-street corner.

Tho only cases so far set down for the Quarter Sessions are those in which the men French and McDonald, committed from the Tumut court, are to stand their trial for alleged sheep stealing.' - Ref- The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser (NSW : 1868 - 1931)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 23 October 1900 Next issue Previous page Page 1).
