MAJURA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 9 April 1915
MAJURA. Since the rain the country about here is looking splendid, and with a few more showers there will be good sheep feed. The local committee held a meet- ing on Saturday night and fixed up matters in connection with the forth- coming Belgian Fund function, and everything points to a successful is- sue. &nbsp; After a residence of 50 years by members of the McIntosh family the old homestead known as "Glade- &nbsp; field" selected by the late John Mc- Intosh in the early days, has been re- sumed by the Federal Government. Mr. James McIntosh (of Young), an old time resident paid a flying visit to his dear old native spot a few days back, and his old friends were pleased to see and find him as jovial as of yore. I am given to understand that the whole of the land in this village is about to be resumed by the Federal Government, so I suppose in the near future there will be a great change hereabouts, either for better or for worse.

AINSIIE TENNIS CLUB BALL. 'The Ainslie Tennis Club held their first aunual ball at Kinlyside's Hall at Hall on-Friday last and the func tionu: was a brilliant success' both socially and financially. The floor, as usual, was in tip-top order, the mnunic splendid. and the night being coo!, everything was in favour of the d::;ncers:-of' whom there were be tween thirty and forty. The cater ing as supplied by Sargent's of Syd ney, was excellent and left nothing to be desired. Although the dancing was timed to wind up at 2.30 p.m. everything was so enjoyable that it was well on to four o'clock before the last dance was ended. The com ,ýintee 'particularly wish to thank '. r. N.? Thomas, of Canberra, for his untiring efforts in contributing so largely to the success of the evening.

EI;ECTORAL ROLL COLI,IC- TIONS. The police are now engaged on the annual revision of the State electoral roll.

THE CHANGE EFFECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 13 April 1915
THE CHANGE EFFECTED. The :first thing ..to. be noted is that the amendment,. as passed, does not bind the Government :to take' riy steps to- effect any' change whatever: Still less does it. specify :any daate for any actioni to" be; taken. It' is still possible, of":oiorse .to .i?'allow time for the - discussion, of a :'non party measure. ' But .the incongruity will be so stiartling that the oppo sition will be immense:y, reintorced. A Bill for establishing a nationa± monopoly, especially. of so debat able a 'practice, should only: be in troduced. by the Government of the day; and Ministers should take' ful responsibil~ty' for it accordingly. The Government will have to administer the -totalisator if the Bill should be introduced and passed:. 'But. it it, only accepts the responsibility un willingly; or even halt" 'heartedlry, what prospect is there that it's.ad ministration will give satisfaction? 'Another unfavorable developmient resulting from the dcc:s'on that the 'machine" shal...

TUESDAY, APRIL 13, 1915. THE P.L.L. AND THE TOTAL ISATOR. Delegates to .the P.L.L. Confer-, ence who were instructed to advo cate the speedy adopt'on of the to taklsator. on the turf can hardly congratulate .themselves on the re sult of their efforts. They seem to have been beguiled into passing a resolution which removes indefinitely the object which they sought. The situation at the moment was .that Mr .Holman, the State Premier, who Is opposed to the "machine,"' and to the prominence which it has as sumed in the councils of Labor, had very unwillingly consented to allow a Bill for its legislation to be intro duced. as a non-party measure. When Conference met a resolution "That". the totalisator be legalisdd" was moved. This was objected to on. the ground ,thati'it. would mean the handiing over to. the clubs do the entire right to bet.. After an animated 'discussion in. the course of which' Mr .Holman denounced the introduction of the subject as un worthy ol the movement, an amend...
