No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 8 February 1876
THE constituency in Polwarth and South Grenville has suffered greatly in times past, and still suffers, in con sequence of the indifference, incapacity, or political treachery, which has charac terised thosoeindividuals it has returned as its representatives in the House of Assembly, and this is such a self evident fact, that very few persons will, we imagine, have the hardihood to dispute it. It is lamentable that an important constitueucy should be served in such a manner by representa tives who should have left no stone unturned in order to further the inte rests of the district, and the colony generally. But a great deal of the blame must be laid upon the shoulders of the electors themselves, as they have. materially assisted to bring about this undesiratble state of affairs, owing to their aiathy in tha matter of organisa tion. However, we trust that an end will now be put to everything of this kind, and " the beginning of the end" may bhe discerned in the formation at Colac of...
