"PUNCH" ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
" PUNCH" ITEMS. It costs nearly £100 to correctly uniform an officer in a Highland regi ment. So there's no oconomy in kilts after all, and the slander that Scots only. wear them to save the cost of trousers falls flat. If the Turner Government gets through the forthcoming session it will beat the Victorian record for stay ing powers. Five years is the longest lived Victorian Ministry to date, and it was the M'Culloch Government, "The Ministry of all the Talents," which achieved the distinction in the sixties. An Irish immigrant the other day presented himself to the Police De partment as a candidate for the force, and explained that he had journeyed all the way from Tipperary for that purpose. He found that there were already enrolled enough approved can didates to last for three years. Putca, feels inclined to add, " British and... Irish papers please copy." During the federation fever it was authoritatively circulated that Premier Turner was the recipient of a " round robin" from...

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. THE WARRAGUL SHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. THE WARRAGUL SHIRE. Local interest will shortly be cen treing in the municipal elections to take place next month in the several ridings of the Warragnl shire. The councillors who retire by eflluxion of time are North Riding-Cr. Caiulter Central Riding-Cr. Parkes South Riding--Cr. Stockdale. In the North Riding a contest is practically a certainty, as Mr. Andrew Lillico announces in another colunn that he is a candidate for the seat. Mr. A. D. Beard is also a probable candidate. In fact, it is not at all unlikely that both of these gentlemen will come forward in opposition to the retiring councillor, and thus make a trio of competitors for the seat. Cr. Parkes, we understand, intends to retire on his laurels, and to at least temporarily sever his connection with municipal affairs, in consequence of the increasing claims of his business upon his timeo Mr. D. McNeil in forms us that he intends offering his services to the ratepayers, and judging by the closeness o...

NUGGETS AT BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
NUGGETS AT BALLARAT. The White party of tributers at tho old Llanberris Company's mine; 13allarat East, during a period of 10 days, ending on Saturday, obtained several nuggets one of which weighed 109 oz., the whole being valued at over £1200. Afterwards the party, which consists of six men, struck another lump of gold, weighing in the rough, 53oz. and 45oz. 13 dwt. on being smelted. Since the 9th inst, the party has, altogether, found nuggets weighing over 400oz., which gave them a return of £1614. The finds took place on the Indicator, at a depth of only 80ft. from the surface. From the proceeds of the sale of the nuggets the Llanberris Company received 12} per cent, royalty. It should be added that Mr. White and his company of tributers worked their block for a long while without receiving a penny, so their success during the past week or two is well deserved.

TRAFALGAR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
TRAFALGAR. The Wesleyan quarterly meeting was held recently in the Church. Present: Mr. Balcke, in the chair; and Messrs .S. Giblett, J. A. Bilson, W. Scott, J. Steel (Trafalgar), J. Burvill (Yarragon South), J. Irwin (Willow Grove), G. Bell (Tanjil South), G, Doherty (Narracan), A. Cleverdon (Coalville); and T. Reynolds, secretary. Old Tanjil having requested that a monthly service may be establised there, after some consideration it was resolved to comply with the request if practicable. Bro Reynolds having removed to near Darnum, in the Warragul Circuit, tendered his resignation as secretary, which was accepted with regret, and Bro Steel was appointed to fill the vacancy. The income showed a marked im provement, and there was an increase in most of the places on the plan, with improved congregations. The income exceeded the expenditure for the quarter by £6, which will reduce the circuit debt by that amount. A cordial- welcome was given Mr. Balcke by the senior steward, on be hal...
NEERIM SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
NEERIM SOUTH. Last week as Mrs Murphy, of Neerim East, was riding home from the town ship, she narrowly averted what might have been a serious accident. She took her horse down to the Red Hill Creek to give it a drink, and by some means it slipped, displacing the rider and throwing her face downwards into the water. Fortunately, it was not very deep, and Messrs Johnson and sons, who are making the road near the spot, were attracted by her screams, and soon had her out on dry land, dripping with the wet and shivering with cold. Mr E. J. Fowler, with a view to establishing an hotel here, has a peti tion in circulation asking the Chief Secretary to orler a local option poll to be taken in connection with the municipal elections in August, and is receiving very fair support.

BUNYIP. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
BUNYIP. Information has come to hand th a amember of the Government has as sured Mr Downward, M.L,A., that a considerable sum will be set aside for roads in the settlement in the next estimates. It is a pity that imore fuhds were not provided for the repair of the roads and that the work was not started in betfer weather. : Some of the Govern ment department have a curious knack of doing the right thing at the wrong time. Had the roads been taken in hand -sbme time ago when the settlers raised the question the new work would have been consolidated by this time, but now that the winter has set in the muddle will only be increased.
