Councillor Nixon moved: 'That the State Government be asked to give power to the Country Roads Board to con struct roads of a developimental ana national character, without contribution from the mun!cipa lities concerned other than -:riintenance when constructed alf-such propositions to be sub mittedci to the Cabinet for sanc tion, and that a sum of money be set apart for the purpose an nually." . He said that the Main Roads Act was the best ever put on the Sta tute Book. (Applause). But it did not go far enough. Near Orbost they had 35,000 acres of the rich est land in the world, and further out another million acres of land. The latter could not be settled be cause there were no roads, but the council coula not find the mo ney to:make the roads. The board had not the power to make roads unless the council could find half the money to make them. Thbre fore legislation was necessary to give it the power.

ROADS TO RAILWAY STATIONS. Councillor Power moved: [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
ROADS TO RAILWAY STATIONS. Councillor Power movel: "That the Country Roads Board, in proclaiming main roads give preference to those r3ads lihich will act as feeders to railhay stations before "roads that are mainly through roads between distant centres of po pulation." He said that his council was not in any way antagonistic to the board, but. the council believed that it woula be to the.interest of back country it short roads were i~nade to the railway stations, instead of long connecting roads. The longer ana expensive roads would absorb, the funds, and perhaps c'ipple the councils financially. Coinci ~S did not like to increase the rates in order to meet the new expendi ture, as it would.be a., hardship on some.of the people. Councillor M'Gregor sezonded the motion. , CouncilloraMi'Galliard said that though the Alberton shire was at one time opposea to.the creation of the Board, that had been swept away. (Hear, hear).

RE-AFFORESTATION! Council or Copeland moved: [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
RE-AFFORESTATION I Council or Copeland moved : "That tlhils association urges upo~i the Government.the neces sity of a more vigorous policy being adbpted and carried out with regard to the management, conservation and renewal of the State forests of Victoria, and a more forward policy 6f re-at forestation, and more particu larly the planting of-blackwood and other trees for tlmber pur poses." He stated" that thee Warragul. district, once covered with timber, was now almost-denuded, and no steps had as yet been taken to re new the supply. There was even difficulty in finding sheltor for stock. A policy of re-afforesta tion was required or Victoria would have to import blue gum timber, from California. Russia and other countries were re-planting. Trees could be planted along fences and on the roads. Councillor M'Gal'iard seconded the motion, and said that the .m ported pine was not as valuable as the ~native hard wood. The motion was caried.
IMPROVING THE GIPPSLAND RIVERS Councillor Whittakers moved: [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
IMPRo VING THE• GIPPSLAND RIVERS Councilor. Whittakers moved: "-Thit- in the opinion ct this Sassd'iation, it is advisable that .thie Latrobe and other, rivers In "Gipp.sland: should be snagged, in Sordei to minimlse the damage sustainea by,floods, and that fhe .Government be urged to take steps to that end." He said that it would mean a great deai to G1ppsland if the Latrobe river'was snagged. It was not a niew proposail, and it was the third time it had beden brought forward. The improvement of the rivei, would benefit a large and tertile area, and there ,was not a knoxe am portant work. It was not sugges ted that the Government should do the work without the landown ers contributing- towards the cost-~ The owners of the land abutting the river were prepared to help themselves, and they wanted thi assistance of the shires in getting the Government to undertakethe scheme. The speaker referred to the recommendation of the con ference of delegates held at Tra ralgon a few weeks ago. ...

THE BORDER RAILWAY. Councillor Nixon moved: [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
THE BORDER RAILWAY. Councillor Nixon moved: "That the Government be urged to extend the ralway from Orbost, through East Gippsland, to the Border, so that its vast timber resources can be put to commercial use, settlement sti mulated, and trade facilities es tab:ished between the twoStates concerned, to their mutual ad vantage." He knew the country through which theline would go very well. There were forests ot timber aind the Government had used some of it for the railways and pubhc. works. The presence of the tlm b'er would reduce the cost qt the line. The State had a vast area of valuable forest country. There was the same timber over.the bor der, and the New South Wales Government had taken large quan tities off a .maller area. The Go vernment should build the Ine for the sake of the timbet. In the Murrengower .forest, halt a -mil lidn sterling worth of -timber had been destroyed. The timber was the best crop some of the land would ever have, and there was a market in Neii South...
RAILWAY LANDS ACQUISISITION BILL. Councillor Nixon moved: [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
RAILWAY LANDS ACQUISI SITION BILL. Councillor Nixon moved: " That in the opinion ct tJis association, the provisions of the Railway Lands Acquisition Act requiring local authorities to provide and pay for the land re quired in country districts, and providing for local rates on new lines, should be abolished; and that the construction of rail ways, and the acquisition of land required therefore, should be treated as a national matter, for the encouragement and ad vancement of settlement, and the development of the primary resoittces of the State." He said that a similar motion was approved of at the Warraguf con terence, and a deputatilon, repre senting 59 shires, subsequently. waited on the Minister. The- Or bost shire council was preparing a pamphlet hpowing why the act should be. repealed. The speaker said he was a member of the Bairnsdale to Orbost .-Railway Trust.

BOWLS. CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS. WON BY MR. DAHLSEN. The champions of tPe various Gilppsland Bowling clubs met at Sale yesterday and played off for the association championship. The following are the games: Dablsen, Balrnsda!e, 31 v. M'Lean, Traralgon, 18. Thomsen, Warragul, 31 v. Govett,' Sale, 18. L Final: Dahlsen, 31; Thomsen, 26 There was a strong wind, ren dering good bowling almost im possible. The time fixed for the startnm of play was 10.30, but Mr. Govtet was unable to get on the green until 12 o'clock. Accrordnmg to the rules ot the game he should have forfeited the match, but Mr. Thomsen, in true sportsman's spl-I rit, offered to play Mr. Govett, and won the game. He had to meet Mr. Dahlsen at once, and was then playing continuously for about 4 hours. He lost the danmpionshlp by five points. Bowlers know that it is very difficult to maintain good ftorm for four hours. Thus Mr. Thomsen practically threw away any chance he hld in order that Mr. Govett shuold play his game.

SHOULD DYSPEPTICS DIET? A SPECIALIST'S VALUABLE ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
SHOULD DYSPEPTICS DIET? A SPECIALIST'S VALUABLE ADVICE. "'Dyspepsia, indigestion, flatu lence, and practically all forms of stomach troubles," writes a lead ing specialist, "are m nearly every instance the direct result of food fermentation, and the consequent production in the stomach of acid and gas, "which irritate and dis tend the stomach, and make nor mal digestion impossible. Thegas by distending the stomach, ana pressing upon the surrounding vi tal organs, seriously interferes with their work, and frequently causes palpatition of the heart; but the acia is much more dangerous, be cause it irritates, then inflames and even ulcerates the delicate lining ot the stomach, producming danger ous stomach ulcers and even can cer. Food fermentation, being pri marily responsible for all the trou ble, it was long the custom of physicians to permit the use of only such foods as could not fer ment, 'but unfortunately, unter mentable foods were soon found to be so lacking in nutrition as to...
GIPPSLAND COMMISSIONER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
GIPPSLAND COMMISSIONER. In proposing the first resolution: "That in the opinion of this Association, it is essential for the effectual settlement of Crown and other lands in Gippsland that a commissioner should be appointed to devote his whole time to settling the unsettled land of the province, and in advising in the purchase of land for clo ser settlement; such officer to advise on the construction of Sroads, railways and forestry,and treatment of lana and other matters for the better develop ment of Gippsland" Councillor Kennedy .said that it would be a very good move. It wvas most advisable that a pra: tlcal. man should be aplpointed to devote his time solely to, Glpps land interests . In the north of the State this practice was fol lowed, but Gippsland was entirely different. The commiss!oner could report on Crown Land whether it was suitable for closer settlement, -what roads were required, and what the land was capable of pro ducing. Councillor Von Horn seconded the motion. H...
