Governors from Great Britain. At the last meeting of the Tally garoopna branch A W.N.L., Mrs H Moss (vice-President) read the follow ing paper on the question of selecting Governors for the Commonwealth and States from Gre*t Britain. Although, as Shakespeare puts it, 1 am " not graced with the set phrase of speech,'' I claim to be possessed of some common tease, and I certainly bake a live'y interest in politics, not withstanding that I am only a woman ; and without making any speeiil refer ence to myself, surely this is just what our country wants at the present time— combination of common sense and po'i tics. Great Britain has certainiy a right to'have in cur midst an umpire in the play of the national life of Australia. The British tax payers have through all the years of Australian history borne the burdeu cf our prot^c ion from invasion by a foreign foe. We could not boast of the possession of this great free land of ours were it not for the Imperial army and navy at our back, ...

DRUMANURE v. NUMURKAH. Namnrkah made the trip to Druma nnre, where the locals with a strong representative team, anticipated victory, bnt snsh was not to be, and a keen and friendly fonght game resulted in a win for the blue and whites by 7 goals 7 be hinds to 4 goals 10 behinds. Umpire Ford had charge, and he certainly fonnd the game somewhat too fast for his liking. Drumannre had the best of the first quarter patting together 1 goal 5 behinds, their opponents failing to score. The second quarter was all Namnrkah's, vand the figures compiled therein pat supporters of the team in good humor with themselves, the totals at half-time reading :— Nnmurkab, 5 goals 1 be hind ; Drumannre, 1 goal, 7 bebinds. The third quarter, like the first, was with the home brigade, bnt they were unable to wipe off the deficiency and when the final stage was entered upon Nnmnrkah had still a lead of 5 points, and more than holding their own over the final journey the bell rang with the figures— Numnikab,...
NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 24 July 1914
NEWS AND NOTES. On Tuesday of last week at the Rec tory a meeting was held for the purpose of appointing stall-holders for the Octo ber Fete, There was a good attendance, and the workers are all keen on making this ye'ar's effort very successful. It was decided to revert to the old name of "Meadow Fete," and to include all the stalls that were in previous fetes with the addition of a strawberry and cream stall. The principal amusement will be the Tug of-war event for the big prize, and the fire station will be the site. The business of allotting the stalls was quickly disposed of and several new workers, who have come into the town since last fete, will take prominent positions. Altogether, the prospect is good, and if the rain comes we hope for a record result. A similar meeting will be held on Thurs day (to-morrow) afternoon at three o'clock at Wunghnu, and in the evening a pic ture concert will be given, as notified by advertisement, the net proceeds of which will be donated to t...

MUCKATAH v. COBRAM. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 24 July 1914
MUOKATAH v. COBRAM, Of Saturday's fixtures the match in which most interest centred was that played at Mockatah where the local club tried conclusions wi'.h Co ram, and a very large crowd assembled to witness the game, the grounds surrounding the playing arena being -literally covered with motor cars and vehicles of all des criptions. Mucbatah had their fullest strength in the field, and Cobram being well represented a good game was ex pected. Umpire Moxham (of the League) had charge of the game, as-" sisted by two boundary umpires, and thanks to his very capable handling, a great contest was witnessed. At the opening of the play a fairly strong wind was b'owing, of which Cobram had the advantage, and in a few moments from the bounce the forward ines were busy, " Shaddy" opening the scoring with a s'lDgle. Kicked off, Les Grant marked and returned, but the opportunity being missed the locals carried the play into the enemy's camp and quickly put on three behinds. From then on to the...

LABOR POLITICS. MR J. O. GOURLEY AT NUMURKAH. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 24 July 1914
LABOR POLITICS. MR J, 0. GOURLEY AT NUMURKAH. Immediately prior to last elections the country Press almost unanimously de cided not to report speeches made by Par liamentary candidates unless they were supplied and paid for, the restrictions impssed by the Fisher Government be ing snoh that reporting was a risk. Both parties were treated alike, but the local Press received abuse from one sec tion only, and threats of boycott rent the air for a time. That episode we thought past. On Wednesday evening, Mr .1, 0. Gonrley, who is opposing Mr A. C. Palmer in the interests of Labor, ad dressed a meeting in the Mechanics' Hall. His coming was heralded by " dodgers" printed elsewhere ; there was no advertisement placed in the local papers ; and this paper received no invi | tation to attend and report the meeting. Oar general policy is—'• No advertise merit and invitation : no report"; and this policy has been strictly followed. However, Labor claims that it has to fight the combined Press ...
