The Town Gardens Question. COUNCILLOR WHITTAKERS EXPLAINS. NO ACTION AT PRESENT. A deputation representing th« Traralgon School Committee, wai ted on the Traralgon shire council on Wednesday, to ask that the re serve at the east end of Frank lin street be formally opened and named on Empire Day. In introducing the deputation, Councillor Pettit said that Empire Day would be an opportune time to open the ground, and set it apart for public gardens. He was sorry there had been a misunder standing with Councillor Whittak ers regarding,, his action in the matter. Some time ago he men tioned the matter of opening the ground on Empire Day to the head, teacher of the school, wtlto said the suggestion was a good one. He (Councillor Pettit) then spoke to the president (Councillor Whitta kers) about it, who saw eye to eye with him'in the matter.

TOONGABBIE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 May 1914

TOONGABBIE. A meeting of the Toongabbie Progress Association was held on Wednesday evening, 13th mst., when there were 12 members pre sent. ? An effort is being mads to - have trucking yards provided at the local railway station, as it is considered by the district stock . owners that yards are very neces sary. At present they are put to much inconvenience and expense in having to truck and receive their, stock at other railway stations. The association has taken this mat ter up, and has written to Mr. Barnes, M.L.A., asking him to sup port them in their efforts. The' Railway Commissioners are also to be asked by the association to re-consider their intention ol removing the railway goods shed. Reference was made at the association meeting to the Strin ger memorial fund. As such a poor response has been made to the ap peal to the public for funds it was decided that if no further dona tions come to hand shortly, the association should consider the advisability of dropping the idea o...

An Historical Sketch. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 May 1914

i An Historical Sketch. Sir,-Kindly allow me to add a few words to your historical sketch ot Traraljgon hotels. The-first ho tel in Traralgon js well known. The second is almost forgotten, and very few in Traralgon have ever heard its name. At one time,how ever, it came into a good deal ot prominence, through some side is sue, to which I will briefly refer. In August, 1871, the late Mr. Luke was elected a member of the Rosed^le council. At that period all hotel license fees went into the municipal funds. Two or three months after his election one ot the other members questioned Cr. Luke's eligibility to sit as a coun cillor, on the ground that he was the proprietor ot the Oddfellows Arms, Traralgon. After some ar gument, the matter was. referred to the- shire solicitor "for advice. His opinion was that Councillor' Luke was (entitled to sit. This feet tied the question under discussion, but it also established the fact for us that at the period mentioned there was an hotel of that, n...

The Journal. TUESDAY, MAY 19, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 May 1914

TUESD4Y, MAY 19, 1914. Snagging the River.-Mr. A. G. Futcher, of Tanjil Hills, does hot think that it will cost £33,000 to snag the Latrobe, as estimated by the engineers of the Public Works department. Mr. Futcher, who has something like two miles of frontage, says that an expenditure of £2 per chain ought to remove all the snags in the river. Mr. Futcher also estimates t^at a total of 8000 acres would be benefitted by the snagging; including 1000 acres of Crown land on the fron tage.^ On Mr. Futcher's figures the cost per acre would be Is 6d. The late Mrs. P. O'Brien. There was a very large attendance at the funeral of the late Mrs. P. O'Brien, of " Ellenvale," Cow warr, on Saturday last.

"THE COMING CRISIS." [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 May 1914

j "THE, COMING CRISIS." j A masterly and prophetic ad dress on " Present Social Condi tions, and the Coming Crisis," was given on Sunday evening in the Traralgon Presbyterian Church by the Rev. Jas. Smith. The basis ot the discussion was Nebucha nezzar's dream and Daniel's inter pretation thereof, as told, in Dan ier II, 31:3; ' The image of the vision, with head of gold, breast ot silver, body of brass, legs of iron, and feet of iron and clay, was typical of the successive glor ies of the Kingdoms of Babylon, Medes and Persians, Greece ana Rome, and the ruling powers of to-day. All these items ot the di vine forecast had been realised to the' letter, and now was coming the Crisis, so unmistakably fore tola by Christ in Luke xxi, 25-8. The characteristics ot this " last stage" were " distress of nations," men fainting from fear, expectation of things coming, etc. All these srgns, tne preacner declared, were being realised now in the struggle between Imperialism and Democ racy.

THE LATE MISS. G. DOVE The death on', the 13th inst. of Miss. G. Dove, eldest daughter ot .Mr. and Mrs. J. . Dove, of Tyers, is particularly sad and painful, see ing that she was not quite 17 years old. That she was studious and industious is shown by the tact that she secured the appointment 0f book-keeper and cashier for Mr. Mac. Christensen, and fulfil led the duties conscientiously and well for a term - of nearly 12 months. She was a member ot the Traralgon Rechabite Tent.au i .ditor. In fact Miss. Dove was destined to a career of usefulness. During the llast few days of her ill ness she told her parents that she would not recover, ad soon pas sed away, believing in a bright hereafter. On the day of the 'funeral, the Rev. W. J. T. Pay conducted a short service in the house. A number of the members of the Rechabite Tent joined the mournful procession to the ceme tery. The Rev.

AT pVLLIGNEE Councillor Bodycomb entertain ed the visitors to dinner. Subse / quently an enquiry was held at the hall. Thomas D. Tanner, dairy farmer, said the land around Calhgnee was suitable for beet growing. He selected land 40 years ago, when it was 'covered with dense scrub and timber. For the past 20 years he had been hoping that they would 'get a railway, so that they ; could grow produce for the mar ket. Owing to the absence of rail way connection, and the bad roads, men who took up l&nd 30 years ago had become disheartened, and abandoned their holdings. It . would pay the government hand 1 somely to look after the settlers in the hills, and keep them on the land. He gave up growing pota toes; owing to the heavy cost of carting to Traralgon. If he was within four or five miles of a rail way he could grow potatoes pro fitably. Had paid 16s per ton for carting to Traralgon. James F. Beard said that he had 345 acres, and was dairying. He had not grown potatoes, because...

TRARALGON, SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 May 1914

TRARALGON. SATURDAY   The committee took evidence in the shire hall, Traralgon, on Sa- turday. Mr. D. Melville presided. William Macdonald, timber mer-     chant, said he was interested in the paling industry. Had about 600 acres of the timber in Bulga. Last season he brought in 287,000 palings, equal to 83 trucks, or 800 tons. He wanted to get in 350 000, this year, but owing to the bad state of the roads, bush fires, and the Width of Tyres Act, had only been able to get in half that number. There was a good demand for palings, and Moore's order was 60,000. With a rail-   way he would be able to bring in a much large number, and the tim- ber he had would keep him going a good many years! Palings were also being brought down the Tarra Valley road. Cartage cost 25s per ton. To Mr. Ward :He delivered the palings in the trucks at Traralgon, and got 18s per 100 for 6 feet and 13s per 100 for 5ft. It was a down grade from his block. It ...

They returned to Gormandale about 1 o'clock, and had lunch at Mr. Wil Jiams', rooms.; By a happy coinci dence, the Gormandale and Gor mandale East schools were hold ing a picnic on the recreation' ground. Consequently, the mem bers of the committee were affor ded an opportunity of.seeing a large number of young people, many of whom were on the verge of manhood and womanhood, and adults.
