BAD ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 5 September 1885

BAD ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. SIR,--- On reading the very able and brilliant leader which appeared in your opening issue, I confess I was somewhat astounded, but withal intensely gratified to learn that Wodonga rejoiced in the blissful possession of two luminaries blessed with " high intellectual capacity " and ' unquestionable abilities! " This revolation was the more exhilarating from the fact that I had previously entertained the delusion (?) that the intellectual horizon of the council was unhappily, somewhat clouded by the uncongenial and jarring elements of Irish mist and Scotch fog. I, no doubt, made a mistake in adopting the conmon method of " judging a tree by its fruits ;" yet, I think that even the most enthusiastic admirer of the two massive minds must admit that the roads in the immediate vicicnity of Wodonga are not exactly indicative of exceeding mental vastness in its councillors. In the interest of humanity generally, and of myself in particular, I would...

THE GUNDOWRING ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 5 September 1885

THE GUNDOWRING ESTATE.   (BY OUR OWN REPORTER) Auctioners have such a fine fancy for picturing the properties they have for sale, as little scraps of Paradise here below, that the public feel not a little dubious in acceptinlg quite as gospel truths   their roseate tales. With a view to ex- amining the Gundowring Estate and seeing for myself, and, as representative   of The Sentinel, I made one of a party of inspection which left Wodonga at an early hour in the morning on an early day of   the week, for the Kiewa River and the   Gundowring Estate. For some distance the Kiewa Road passes through the Shire of Wodonga, and afterwards through a part of the Shire of Yackandandah. Where the road is unformed and filled (tear in paper)  stead and pleasant slopes of excellent land, I could not quite suppress the feeling that it would take at least: 200 years savings of a nwsepaper reporter to enable him to acquire such an estate. From Mr Re...

THE SENTINEL. "Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!"—MILTON. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1885 [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 5 September 1885

THE SENTINEL. "Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!" - MILTON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1885. IT is the boast of the Englishmen that while other populations have lived for   centuries as the serfs of tyrant princes,   that they have, from time immemorial, been duly represented in their Parlia   ments, which have been suffieciently powerful to keep the rulers of the country within the law, and had also the public spirit and intelligence to legislate for the general good of the community. From the first, members of Parliament have always represented local districts; and the most forcible arguments of   political philosophers and speculators,   have failed to induce the Legislature of   any English community to constitute itself upon any basis other than that of local representation. In our own colony, while this excellent system has always prevailed it has not invariably proved to be synonymous with justice. Wh...

MUNICIPAL JUNKETTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 5 September 1885

MUNICIPAL JUNKETTINGS   ----+---- At the invitation of Councillor Carkeek, about thirty representative gentlemen assembled at his hotel at noon on Tuesday, to celebrate the conclusion of his year of office as President of the Towongshire Council. The dinner served in a   style that well sustained the reputation of the hostelry. Councillor Carkeek pre sided, with Councillor Andrew Paton, the newly-elected president, as his vis-a- vis. After the viands had received ap ppreciative treatment, Councillor Paton rose, and, in a very eulogistic speech, proposed "The Late President," referring   to the tact and impartiality displayed by Councillor Crakeek during his presidency. The toast was drunk with musical honors, Mrs Carkeek and the young Carkeeks not being forgotten. In a few brief and ap propriate remarks, Councilior Carkeek responded. He thanked the company for the kind manner in which they had drunk his health. He had used his best en deavours,...

MR MACFARLANE EXPLAINS TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL SIR, - In your issue of Saturday last, in par of your leading matter, you have thought fit to bring me to task for my conduct at a public meeting, held lately for the purposes of hearing the retiring councillors and new members state their views and give account of their   stewardship ; of what they (the old members) had done since last election. You blame me for bringing Mr. Wood land, the superintendent of roads, etc., before the public meeting, and state that the council chamber was the proper place. You are quite right, Sir, so far as "you know of the matter. And now, Sir, that you have stirred the matter up, which I intended to have let drop, I will now let you and the public know the true facts of the case, and let them judge for thoem selves. In the first place, complaints (not the first time) came to Councillors Ferrier, Parnaby, aud myself, of the scandalous way the contracts of Draper's Hill and Rat's Castle...

BETHANGA. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 5 September 1885

FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT On Friday evening last our local Blue Ribbon Army gave a tea inmooting and social evening in the church, or rather the brass band gave thu tea light, and the army the social, or open, meeting. The tea meeting, from a social point of view, was a success, but I have not yet heard how it fared financially. Its objcct was to raise funds to purchase a now bass in strument, these illstruments being too ex pensive for individual nmembers to pur chase. I mn ust congratulate the members on sticking so well together so far, and some pieces are played very fairly for so young a band. It would be unfair to the bandmaster and the band to expect too mouch at present from them, for the first year must' necessarily be taken up with the thorough groundwork of music, etc., but having waded through these our band master can then look upon his band as musicians, and not merely mechanical players. A brass band is one of the finest institutions in any townIslLip, and I eaim ple...

TOWONG SHIRE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, lst SEPTEMBER. SPECIAL MEETING.   Present-The full council.

Cr Carkeek, the retiring president, was voted to the chair.     THE PRESIDENTIAL ALLOWANCE. Cr Scarlett remarked that the Governor is likely to pay a visit to the district, he understood, in November next, and if such an event took place, he trusted proper hospitality would be extended to the distinguished a visitor. In view of the cost pertaining to his Excellencey's trip, he moved that the allowance to the incoming president be £100. Cr' Stewart accorded the motion, but ?eared that £100 would not be sufficient   to cover expenses if the council received the Governor in a fitting manner.

The score of the Rifle Club at its weekly   practice was as follows :- Ten rounds, 320 yards - W. Sullivan, 29 ; J. Allwood, 28 ; H. Martin, 25 ; H. P. Stephen, 23 ; Jas. Wilkinson, 22 ; W.

Councillor Stewart on Tuesday found fault with the engineer on account of the large balance to the credit of the Murray riding. He envies the indebtedness of the Mitta and Kootong ridings, and thinks his own has been neglected. He longs to dissipate its disgustingly large credit balance. Bye the bye, debt, after all, is a curiously funny thing. It is the only thing in the world that the more you contract it, the bigger it grows. I only hope I havn't run into debt for this remark. But I hope my readers. are willing to give trust. They should never refuse tick to a joke. Why, if one isn't to say a smart thing, or a wise thing, or a fun...
