KING ISLAND. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914

KING ISLAND. (To the Editor). Sir..-" Cocky'' has written a let ter on this subject, warning those seeking land th^t they may be per suaded against their will into buy ing land in King Island. Now it " Cocky" had any experience as how keen prospective buyers are, he would not waste his advice. I will now give you a few parti culars of a £rip\ I made over there about the beginning of February. Leaving the South wharf on the s.s. Wauchope, we steamed down the river and into the bay, about 5 o'clock, and the boat began to pitch and toss so much so, that after tea the passengers soon got into their bunks. In the morning, looking out of the port holes, we discovered that we were near Portsea, where we anchored. Leaving there at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, we got out into Bass Straits, and reached Currie -King Island, about 8 o'clock the next morning. As usual, there was the bustle of friends meeting, and two or three friends whom I had made on'the way over, went ,on to arrange our places...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT FAILURES. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914

CLOSER SETTLEMENT FAILURES. The Closer Settlement Com mission sat at Warragul last week and took evidence in connexion with (the Bona Vista Estate. The settlement, established in 1907, is one of the failures. Some-of the settlers on the blocks said that one of the chief causes of failure was the poor quality of the soil. This libel was indignantly repel led by tho surrounding landowners and residents of Warragul and members of the commission were induced to hiake a tour of inspec tion round the district. The " Age" special reporter says the inspection did not support the statement ot the settlers that the land is of inferior quality. Indications of want of adapta bility to their . fiew environment were noticed in the cases of hard working settlers, who had frittered away their time and their capital jn things that were remote, while neglecting the things that were at hand and imperative. In this district dairying, for instance, is an assured and immediate source of income to the man...

"GOING TO CHURCH." [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914

"GOING TO CHURCH.' The |above was the subject ot one pi (Rev. W. Scurr's popular discourses, delivered at the Me thodist church on Sunday evening last. It was based on several texts ot Scripture. He said there was a 'right way and a wrong way ot j going to church. It everyone went I to church in the right spirit they would get good, and the reason po :many did not derive benefit from :going to church was because they }iad not hit upon t-he right way. Dealing first with " How not to go to Church," Mr. Scurr said that the church, goer must (a) :Not go in selt seeking spirit. If he did ^o he had no right to expect i any benefit, (b): Some people went to church for in tellectual reasons; good preaching and good music, which was ano ther form ot selfishness. Yet the worship of God had given birth to the ifinest music, (c): The worship per ,must not go to church mainly to 'ensure his own salvation. Ra ther ^ he go to church.1 that - he might get something t'hlat he can pass on to others, ...

THE VICTORIAN ASSEMBLY ELECTORAL ROLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914

THE VICTORIAN ASSEMBLY ELECTORAL ROLLS. The police have added over one hundred thousand to the names which figured on the electoral roll ot the State. Few suspected Jfrat the army of disfranchised was so big, or that when it vanished those who had formed it would add so largely to the vesting power of the metropolitan districts. Possibly the latter fact might have been surmised, for a not inconsiderable portion of Melbourne's population floats from suburb to suburb, res ting no where . long enough to catch the eye of the officials do ing their work in ordinary" routine way. But, be all that as it may, the figures, now practically gtom plete, show that Victoria's great problem, the due division of her inhabitants between country and city, is more acute than ever. According to the old rolls, the country electors outnumbered the metropolitan by 44,343. Those who studied the figures, and who reali sed their significance, found them very depressing. They showed far too great a proportion...

Downie was again elected to the position of corres pondent. The correspondent was instructed to write and ask for two new tanks, as the present ones are leaking and worn out. The meeting then closed.

f An Historical Sketch. I - i ' Continued from last issue. ". By this time Traralgon ftaQ ac quired a secure footing, and was forging ahead' by the influx ot po pulation and capital. Peterkin s sawmills were in tuli swings timber and paling trade was being done, the mam railway was about finished, and the cross junction to Maffra and Stratford in progress. Extensions and improvements were galore, and the town was fast be coming a rccogmsed centre ot .the Gippsland cattle trade, so that from these varied "source? cnere was full employment tor an army: ot workmen; plenty ot money was 'in circulation. The natural coroll ary of this prosperity was what has already, been indicated; the hotel interest kept even with the demands of the times, and then numbers increased. The second to be erected was adjoining Mr. John Peterkin's general store, at the corner of Franklin and Ar fryle streets. It was built about *76, and still stands as Ryan s Hotel, but the original sign was that of the Rubic...

THE ROADS QUESTION. MACHINES AND METAL CRUSHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914

THE ROADS QUESTION. MACHINES AND METAL CRUSHERS. In the course ot his very excel- . lent and comprehensive address, at. the shires' conference, at Tra-. iralgon last week, the chairman ot the Country Roads Board, Mr. .Calder, expressed his disappoint ment that there ar£ not more road contractors with a lull equipment. He said that he was hoping some ot the councils, would obtain stone crushers and other plant. This is a matter that the district shire councils will have to ttnsider, as machinery very materially reduces the cost ot road making. It is probable that £40,000 or £50,000 will be spent in making roads m the Traralgon shire during - the (next few years, and nearly the same amount in the Morwell shire Hence it is incumbent on the coun cils to get the work done as" eco nomically as possible. None ot the local contractors have any thing like/ a complete plant, and as there 'will be so much work in other parts ot the State, the chan ces ot outside contractors with plant coming h...
