A large number of parents were assembled, and it was evident that the action of the late committee at the time of the Jubilee school treat in 1897 was more or less found fault with by the majority of those present. Many more than the required number of committee were nominated, with the result that Messrs. James and Joseph Cossart, R. H Nosworthy, S. Dover, W. McLean, and J. Walls headed the poll. The first four of these are new members, the two last-named being the only survivors of the late committee.

    Cossart, James (1857–1922)
    Mr James Cossart died suddenly at Boonah yesterday morning. The deceased was an intimate friend of the late Senator John Adamson, and it is thought that the shock of the news of Mr. Adamson's fatal accident caused his death. The deceased was one of the pioneers of the timber industry in the Fassifern district, and was the senior partner of the present firm of James Cossart and Sons, sawmillers, Dugandan. He was the father of Freemasonary in Fassifern, and for 30 years was a resident of the district. A Masonic funeral is being arranged to take place today."
