CR. C.W. CLIFFORD RESIGNS FROM MORTLAKE COUNCIL COLLEAGUES EXPRESS . REGRET. For a long time Cr. Charles W. Clifford has felt that he should re sign his seat as a member of the Mortlake riding for the Shire of Mortlake, owing to his inauility to devote the time that is necessary to give the fullest atten tion to the duties Which are asso ciated with the position. Cr. Clifford's friends were successful in persuading him to defer his in tention of resigning about 12 months ago, but lately he decided to finally resign, notwithstanding the overtures that were made. And at yesterday's meeting of the Council the resignation of Cr. Clifford was tendered. After the secretary (Mr. J. M'Meekin) had read Cr. Clifford's letter Cr.

TRUE COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 4 April 1914

TRUE COURAGE. «*It la no easy thing," remarked e jtent&l authority, "to distinguish be tween true courage and qualities which may take its place, such as etolidity, lack of imagination, and in sensibility. t "I oiice listened to a man" who, as c. traveller and explorer, had passed through many adventures, and who boasted of the dangerous situations which he had faced while his compan ions had run away. When I came to lcnow him better, I found that his cour age was chiefly a matter of insensibil ity and dulness of imagination. Had her realised his peril to the same ex tent as his companions he would with out doubt have taken to his heels with the rest. "Most cf us have laughed at the ex cuse of the timid soldier who com plained that in Battle his legs ran away with him of their own accord.

FIRE AT CAMPERDOWN. THREE SHOPS DEMOLISHED. At an early hour on Tuesday morning a fire broke out in one of two weatherboard shops in Mani fold-street, and owned- by Mr. John Fullarton. One building was tenanted by Mr. George Palmer, cycle builder, and in the other Mr. George Hooper conducted a billiard saloon. The water supply consisted of the contents of tanks and wells in the immediate neighborhood, but was very inadequate for the purpose of fire extinction. The flames spread around and over a brick wall dividing the saloon from Mr. John Logan's tobacconist's shop, and destroyed his establishment, too. The three buildings, which were the property of Mr. Fullarton, were destroyed. They were not insured. The stocks and contents were partly i covered by insurance.
