The Ararat Advertiser SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914
i- i \`' _ 1 ' , , \i? StATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1914. It-was stated at the last meeting of lioe Ararat Borough Council that were : supply of water available for the town equal to the normal needs of a ivilised community, it is probable lit tle time would be lost in establishing h sewage system at the Hospital for Insane. For some considerable time past this very desirable step has been under the consideration of the Lunacy Department, and it is to be hoped that at an early date a supply of water adequate to the reasonable needs of. a progressive town will enable the institution to adopt some modern me thod for the disposal of its sewage. This is desirable in the interests of the health of the unfortunate beings who are there under treatment. It may perchance happen that the introduction of a modern system, which must neces sarily have a beneficial effect upon the well being of the insane, will not be without a reflex action upon the cor porate mind and bring home to the lo 'cal autho...

STAWELL. RESTRICTIONS ON USE OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914
BTAWELL. RESTRICTIONS ON USE OF WATER. The Borough Council --hais been forced to restrict the use of water on gardens, and has issued an order for biddihgthe 'use bf hoses, but-house holders are pernmitted,:to water their gardeus by the use: of watering-cans. There is. evidence of an enormous quantity of wanter,being wasted in the town, and to this, is attributed the present .state of the reservoirs. The water is conveyed from the Grampians by means of fluming and pipes, and -there are two ?mall reservoirs in the town, the one being used as a distri butingl basin and the other as .a stand-by for summer, but the drain has been so great on the reservoirs that there is very hlttle 'water left in No. 2 reservoir; hence the necessity for the action taken' by 'the council. Householders have never before been restricted in the use of water, and the present.position has been brought about by the neglect 'of the council to.take action against persons wasting water. .,

They received a reply to the effect that that date could not be granted, and in its place Friday, 17th April, was offered. The Glen. thompson Club, which body originally wanted the 17th, but were refused, again approached the V.R.C. asking that they be allowed to race on the 17th, and that body has received a reply to the effect that the request has been granted.

THE GRAMPIANS FIRE. WATER SUPPLY AREA SWEPT. CARETAKER'S RESIDENCE DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914
THE GRAMPIANS FIRE. WATER SUPPLY AREA SWEPT. CARETAKER'S RESIDENCE DE STROYED. The first serious loss from the bush fires in the Grampians occurred on Wed nesday afternoon, when the residence of Mr Thomas Cumming, the caretaker of the Borough of Stawell waterworks, was destroyed, together with outbuild ings and stabling accommodation. Fanned by a strong hot north wind, the fire shot up the Gap. The Borough Hut. next door caught on fire, but by strenu ons effort was saved .from destruction, as were also the summer residences of Miss Wehl, Mr George Mitehell, and the Misses D'Alton. The last named house, which is owned by two old ladies, had a very narrow escape, a portion of it having to be pulled down. The fire then swept'on towards the one that occurred in the vicinity of the fluming works about a week ago, and it is hoped that now it will burn itself out. Hall's Gap has suffered from bush fires from below "Bellfield" right through to Mount -Abrupt, a distance of about 15 miles, an...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. ITS FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. DR. GILRUTH IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914
THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. ITS FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. DR.' GILRUTH IN 'MELBOURNE. Dr. Gilruth, Administrator of the Northern Territory, who was summoned to Melbourne by the Minister for Ex ternal Affairs to confer with him re garding the future development of the Territory, arrived on Thursday. A few hours after he had stepped from the Sydney express, the first of a series of conferences was in progress. All that the Minister had to say at its con clusion was that general. matters re lating to the Territory were discussed. It is not unlikely that as a result of the interchange of views between the Minister and the Administrator, some drastic alterations will be made in the administration. The abolition as se parate positions of the Protectorship of Aborigines, the Directorship of Lands and the Directorship of Education, is believed to be but a mila measure of the reform which is in contemplation. It is known that the present Fede ral Government, including the Minister in charge of the Ter...

BALLARAT, Friday., By some strange reticence on the lart of members of the family, and likewise the local doctor, the police were not informed until yesterday even= ing of a shooting affair near Sears dale, in whichli David Black received injuries on Wednesday evening that proved fatal last evening, about 24 hours after the affair occurred. The deceased was shot by his. son, Archi bald Black, under circumstances that suggest accident.

S*Afteri hE I cussion which took plac' at the ordinaer, meeting of the -Ararat Borough Council on Wednesday 'evening last in connection with the :tuestion of the ippoipjtment of Town Clerk, and Engineer, .there was doubt in'the.minds of many whether Mr Frank Ne6sbon-L'c1, C.E., would accept the position. It will be remembered that the advertisement calling for np plicants stated that there was to be no private practice, but that was not stipu lated in the conditions, but the addi tion was added to the conditions last Wednesday night, and it was decided :when Mr Lock signed them that he should be appointed. Mr Lock attended the meeting of the council, as previously announced, and in responding to the toast of Ins health, .proposed in the Mayor's room, said that he would let the council know in :a few days whether he would accept the position or not.
