CLOSER SETTLEMENT FAILURES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 12 May 1914

CLOSER SETTLEMENT FAILURES. The Closer Settlement Co.n mission sat at Warragul last week and took evidence in conneq.ion with the Bona Vista Estate.- lhe settlement, established in 1907, is one of the fadlures. Some of the settlers on the blocks said that one of the chief causes of failure was the poor quality ol the soil. This libel was indignantly repel led by the surrounding landowners and residents of Warragul and members of the commission were induced to inake a tour of inspec tion round the district. The "Age" special reporter says the inspection did not support the statement of the settlers that the land is of inferior quality. Indications of want of adapta bility to their ?pew environment were noticed in the cases of hard working settlers, who had frittered away their time and their capital in 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] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 12 May 1914

'"GOIN~ TO CHURCH." The .~above was the subject of one pt Rev. W. Scurr's popular discourses, delivered at the Me thodist church on Sunday evening last. It was based on several texts of Scripture. He said there was a 'right way and a wrong way of going to church. If everyone went to church in the right spirit they woula get good, and the reason so many did not derive benefit from going to church was because they bad not hit upon the 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 so he had no right to expect iany benefit. (b):- Some people went to church for in tellectual reasons; good preaching and good music, which was ano ther form of selfishnesas Yet the worship of God had given birth to the !finest music. (c): The worship permust not go to church mainly to 'ensure his own salvation. Ra ther, he go "to church that he might get something tht he can pass on to. others, and help them. (d...

THE VICTORIAN ASSEMBLY ELECTORAL ROLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 12 May 1914

THE VICTORIAN ASSEMBLYt ELECTORAL ROLLS. The police have added over on.. hundred thousand to the names which figured on the electoral roll of the State. Few suspected L.at the army of disfranchised was so big, or that when it vanished those who had formed it would add so largely to the voting 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 offi'alas do ing their work in ordinary -routine way. But, be all that as it may, the figures, now practically ?om 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 metropolitarn 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...

An Historical Sketch. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 12 May 1914

An Historical Sketch. Continued from last issue. , By'this time Traralgon had ac 'quired a secure footing, and was forging ahead by the influx of po *pulation~ and capital. Pcterkin's sawmills were in full swing, a large timber and paling trade was being done, the main railway was about finished, and the cross junctionwto Maffra and Stratford in progress: Extensions and imnprovements were galore, and the town was • fast be coming a recognised centre of the Gippsiand cattle trade, so that from these varied sources cen~ was full employment for an army of. workmen plenty of 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 gylc streets. It was built about '76, and still stands as Ryan's Hotel, but the original sign wad that bf the Rubico...

THE ROADS QUESTION. MACHINES AND METAL CRUSHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 12 May 1914

THE ROADS .QUESTION. MACHINES AND METAL CRUSHERS. In the course of his very excel lent and comprehensive address, at the shires' conference, at Tra lralgon last week, the chairman of the Couhtry Roads Board, Mr. ,Calder, cpressed his disappolit-_ ment that there are not more road contractorswith a full equipment. He said, that he was hoping some of the councils would obtain stone crushers and other plant. This is a matter that the district shire councils will have to tonsider, as machinery very materially reduces the cost of road making. It is probable that £40,000 or £50,000 will be spent in making roads mn the Traralgon shire during the next few years, and nearly the same amount in the Morwell shire Hence it is incumbent on the cdun cils to get the work done as eco nomically as possible. None of the local contractors have any thing like a comniplete plant, and as there ,will be so much work m other parts of the State, the chan ces of outside contractors with plant coming here is r...

CARRAJUNG. (From our own Correspondent). The annual ball given by .the bachelors of Carrajung took place on Tuesday hight, and was very well patronised. Residents from the various little districts were present, and seemed to be highly satisfied'with the hospitality ex tended to 'them by the local bache lors. Mr. Hawkins,' of Buln.Buln, supplied the music, and Mr. G. Wight acted as M.C. The weather during the past week has been .gloriously fine. A very good 'autumn growth has taken place sinde the burning of this country t. few moriths ago. Much good .has been done in the destruction of rubbish throughout the district. The Railway Standing Commit tee will be present at. Gormandale during the week, taking evidence in regard to the construction of a developmental line to that place. With such a splendid gathering ground lying at the back of Gor mandale, it seems almost a cer tainty of the proposal catching.the committee's eye. .No interest is taken locally in, the visit of that lIody. ...

Ex tracts from about 50 letters re ceived from farmers by the Immi gration Bureau, in the course of two or three days, have been, for warded to this office, and they af fora very clear indication that on the whole the lads are proving to be of a very desirable character.

EARLY TRARALGON. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 12 May 1914

EARLY TRARALGON. To the Editor. Sir,--The forthcoming demoli tiorr of such atl historic landmgrk as the Traralgon Hotelfhas evo ked many remimniscences as to its early history. This hotel has occupied_ such a prominent place m Traralgon, and has been so closely identified with its growth and progress,that any details con cerning its earlier history become of interest. I shall therefore add a few hastily written nates to the general stock. In your last issue it is stated that the hotel was established in (1858. Although not certain, yet I am under the impression that it was some $,ears earlier. In the matter of dates, memory is prover bially unreliable, unless supported by documentary evidence. Yet it my recollection serves me right, there used to be a sign board over the building 30 years ago, on which the words :"Established min 1855," used to appear. This point, therefore, is one on which furtrhr information may be forthcoming. Although the h'otl was built by Mr. Duncan Campbell, ...

OONGABBIE RACES. -o As briefly stated in last' issue, the Toongabbie races on Thurs day last were most successful from every point of view, and the best the club have had for years, and it would appear that the club has entered upon a more vigorous career. The committee made an effort to get a real good meeting, and being ably backed up by the secretaries; the veteran Mr. J. W. Gales, and the experienced Mr. W. Heywood, there was an un precented number of horses on the ground. Fancy an entry of 70 horses. One regular follower of races was i.leard to say that the Toongabbie club had treated the horse owners .very well, and they determined to return the compli mefit. It was also said that the meeting would be quite as good as the Maffra meeting on Thurs day. The fields were large; lar ger in fact, than we generally see at country meetings:-12 in the Trial, six in the Handicap, 8 in the Pony, seven in the Brace let, and 13 in the Novelty Pony, and three in the last race, the Flyin...
