The Evening Chronicle

Jump to content

The Evening Chronicle contained domestic and foreign news, advertisements, legislative proceedings, serial fiction, editorials and other features. The Chronicle was started by the former editor of the Evening Herald, P. T. McGrath, to support the government of the newly formed People's Party and Edward Morris. The paper opposed Confederation and the Bond party and was a rival to the Evening Telegram and Evening Herald. At the end of 1912, McGrath purchased the Evening Herald and merged the Chronicle into the older paper, converting the Herald from an opposition paper to a government mouthpiece.
