Thoinas Ke!nt' Reeks, of Sydney, at- Wolverhampton -recently. -It =will be remembered that Reeks came to England, from. Anerica a few days 'prior to his murder as a passenger on the s.s.

NEW ENGINEER AND TOWN CLERK. THE PRIVATE PRACTICE QUESTION. INTERESTING COUNCIL DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 February 1914
NEW ENGINEER AND TOWN CLERK THE PRIVATE PRACTICE QUES TION. INTERESTING COUNCIL DEBATE. Last night at the meeting of the Ararat Borough Council an interesting debate took place, on the question of the appointment od'the new Town Clerk and Engineer, Mr W. N. Lock. The matter under dispute was that of private practice. Cr Irwin-I have mentioned the mat ter to Mr Lock. lie informed me that it was in the advertisement that there was to be no private practice, but that it was not in the conditions. Cr Simpson moved-" That Mir Lock be appointed conditionally on his sign ing the conditions, which will provide that there be no private practice." The Town Clerk said in the adver tisement it was stated that there would be no private practice, but through an oversight it was not put in the conal tions. Cr Irwin seconded the motion. - Cr Impey did not think it necessary to insert that condition. under ~.the circumstances. It-was meant that there should be no'private practice about Arara:t. So f...

MR LOCK'S HEALTH PROPOSED. When councillors adjourned to the Mayor's room, the Mayor proposed the health of Mr Lock in felicitous torm.s, •and hoped that his term among them would be a pleasant one.

As a matter of fact he had the appointment. in his pocket. He would consider the mat ter, and would let them know in a day or two whether he would accept the position or not.
CABLEGRAMS. REUTER'S SPECIALS. DEPORTED STRIKERS. CALL AT LAS PAMAS. LANDING NOT ALLOWED. LONDON, Monday Midnight. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 February 1914
OABLEGRAMS. BEUTER'S SPECIALS. DEPORTED STRIKERS. CALL AT LAS PAMAS. LANDING NOT ALLOWED. LONDON, Monday Midnight. The steamer Umgeni, which is con cveying the deported South African strike leaders to England, called in at Las Palmas to-day for provisions. N~obody was allowed to embark or disembark, but a launch was brought alongside the steamer, and from this the deported men were interviewed. They stated that they had intended to insist on being allowed to land at Las Palmas, but afterwards they came to a decision not to land, in order not to compromise the captain and officers, who had treated them with much kind ness. Mr J. T. Bain (general secretary of the Federation of Trades) declined to make any statement in regard to the deportation of himself and his colt leagues, until they had consulted with the English Labor leaders. - Mr Bain admlnitted, however, that the ldeporta tion had not come altogether as. a sur prise.
ARARAT GOLDFIELDS. THE HOPKINS LEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 February 1914
A ARAT GOLDFrIEDS, THE HOPKINS LEAD. (By E. J. Alexander.) The granite peaks of 'Langi .Ghiran are a striking feature in the varied landscapes around Ararat. Rising abruptly from the "Gene Plain," they arrest attention from whichever side they are approached. Prom Ararat the southern end of the granite hills t present the outline of an enormous fac s peacefully gazing at the sky. In the L early fifties, when' numbers of teams travelled over from Adelaide, the-e d hills were used as a landmark to guide a them on their way to the busy scens t of Ballarat and Bendigo. A few days Sago, with a friend, I went exploding i along the upper reaches of the Hopkins I River, which has its course for some d miles parallel with the granite hills, but about a mile off. Our object was not looking for beautiful scenery, nit n the more utilitarian one of examining the sources of one of the main triba- g taries of the Ararat goldfields. I We turned off the Ararat and Balla , rat road about a mile on th...

THE POMONAL APPLE CROP. MARKETS CONTRASTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 February 1914
THE POMONAL APPLE CROP. MARIKETS CONTRASTED. It is interesting to note in convers ing with a local forwarding agent (says the Stawell "Times") that out of the first consignment of 2000 odd cases of Pomonal apples sent away on Saturday last, the majority were for the German market. Out of this agent's 775 eases exported, no less than 650 were for Germany, and 125 for London. This, it is stated, can be taken as a fair average. Asked why this was so, the reason given was that better facilities could be obtained in Ger many in favor of the seller mean in English markets. In Germany, the apples are treated in a similar .:anue: to our wool sales; every consignment is opened up and scheduled. In England (Covent Gar len) the facilities are far from being satisfactory from a producer's p~int of view, When it is estimated that some thou sands of eases will be sent away be tween this and April-some bringnig as much as £1 per case-the amount of money wyhich eventually returns to the district mo...

FORMER ARARAT BANDMASTER. MR T. YOUNG TO TOUR AMERICA. The "Australasian Bandsman" has a ,lengthy report of a farewell to Mr T. Young, formerly bandmaster of the Ararat Town Band. From the article we clip the following :--"Recently the members of the South Sydney Model Band met at the bandroom to say au revoir to tneir departing bandmaster, Mr Thos. Young, who has been granted six months' leave of absence, so that he might tour America with the Quin lan Opera Co. Mr Leeman (chairman) explained the object of such a meeting, and he was sure every member was very sorry to lose Mr Young as a con ductor, although only for six months. He hoped he would enjoy his tour, and he was certain the experience Mr Young would cultivate would be a great benefit to his band on his return. On behalf of the members, he'presented:Mr Young with a beautiful enlarged photo.: of the band, taken at the recent Bat burst contest, and also a purse of sove reigns. .
