The Bathurst Times (NSW), Wednesday 19 January 1921

A Uralla paper reports :-

The Cooney Creek Hotel was to be dismantled this week, but when the dismantlers turned up they found a belligerent old gentleman in occupation, who threatened to spill a lot of blood if they attempted to shift him. Though the occupant is 82 it was deemed discretionary to leave him alone — for the present at any rate.
