Competitions Mix-up. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
Competitions Mllx-up. A curious situation has been disclosed through circumstances arising out of the recent angling conipetitions. The com petitions of last season were managed throughout by the general committee of the Casterton Angling Society, without demur on the part of anyone, and a rule was enforced that no single competitor should be allowed to take more than one trophy at a single competition, Mr F. Lawrence, who on one. ocecsson lands ed the biggest fish and the best basket, being under this rule barred from taking more than one of the two trophies severally allotted for heaviest fish and most fish caught. This year, Mr S. A. Miller had the heaviest single tish, and also the best basket, 'Mrs A. If.. Millei havidg equal number of fish (two), but rather less weight. The committee had meantime, it app:aro, agreed that the rule referred to should be abrogated, so that one competitor should be allowed to take both trophies.

Richards and Co.'s Display. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
Iltichartls an( Uo.'s Display. There can Ie only ons opinion of this new display by the famous firm. Richards and Co., viz, "The best yet." It seems hard to sur pass the excellent exhibitions made in the past, .but the subtle advancbmont in the photographic art is clearly shown. For in stance, the central shades are displayed in colors which lend a realistic effect which impels the beholder to doubt whether they are really produced by the camera in the ordinary manner. Perhaps the moststrik ing examples ara two large head studlies of young ladies. One in t Rembrandt effect with beauti ftl luminosity in tile shadows, .a scarlet feather which is depending from the hair striking it novel note in portrait, composition. The other examtple is a large full face portrait, entitled "T!he Coral Necklace." The expression is most lifelike and imnressive. A display of photos by Richards and Co. woutd be incomplete without bridal portraiture, for which Richards an(d Co. are famed throughout Austr...

Printed MONDAY & THURSDAY EVENINGS flONDAY, JANUARY 12, 1014. The "Country Ministry." Claim Upon Country Liberals. No previous Ministry has ever com." mitted itself so boldly and thoroughly to making country interests its first consid. eration, as has the present Watt Govern. ment. In the declaration of policy made by the Premier at Esarndon last week, Mr Watt emphatically expressed the deliberate recognition by his Ministry of the fact, indisputable, that the interests of the whole State are dependent upon those of provincial industries, and the determination of the Cabinet, that no of. fort shall be spared to promote (as far as legislation and administration,can do so) rural enterprise, both'in primary produc. tion, and in the expynsion of manufactur. ing industries in country towns. The Premier and his previous Ministers rent further in this direction than any of their predecessors. Mr Watt and his present colleagues have gone much fur ther than did the last Liberal Gover...

The Leitch Pictures. A Capital Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
The Leitch Pictures. A Capital Show. With the advantages of a machine that works steadily, without a hitch, and a brilliant illuminant in the electric light, the Leitch Pictures are so ad mirably displayed that, as they are good in themselves, they have distinctly caught on with the Cas terton public. This was demon strated on Thursday night last in the attendance of spectators, that was larger for the first of this year's weekly series than that at either of the two exhibitions given at the close of last month. The first of the two star-series, "By Man's Law," was a striking, though by no means attractive drama, which served to well illustrate the hideous callousness of the greedy trust magnate, who is quite unjustly represented as typical of capitalists as a body, and is habitually used for politi cal purposes to mislead ignorant people. "A'Wild Guardian" was a fine series, which served to illustrate the possession by animals of that extra sense, indu bitably existent, yet altoget...

An Obsolete Rule. Might Well Be Abrogated. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
An Obsolete Rule. Might Well Be Abrogated. The fact that twice within the past month the course of State public business has been dis arranged, and the taxpayers put to considerable expense, has di rected general attention to the absurdity of requiring members of Parliamnent, on taking office as Ministers, to go before their con stituents for re-election. This rule does not obtain in the Federal Parliament, and there is no reason why it should be continued in the Victorian Parliament. Con stituents who think so much of a man as to elect him their repre sentative in Parliament have reason to congratulate themselves if his fellow members think so well of him as to give him the position of a Minister, and, rarely reject as a Minister, a man whom they have elected as a private member, seeing that in the higher position he exercises a more powerful influence in usefulness to them and the State. It is to be hoped that the Watt Ministry will take early steps to so alter the Constitution th...

Strike Troubles. South African Railways. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 12 January 1914
Strike Troubles. South African Railways. A strike of men engaged on the Trans= val railways was ordered for midnight on Wednesday last, and the Federation of Labor threatened to order a general strike if a settlement of points inl dispute was not arrived at by Saturday. Mean time the Government arranged to call out the burghers to guard the mines and to protect property. Troops were held in readiness at Pretorin and Petchels erom, and half a million roundsof ammu nition had been sent to Johannesburg, there residents were laying in stores of food supplies. Precautions were taken to prevent firearms and anunnition being secured by revolutionary persons and the cadet ritles were called in. The Johannesburg branch of the Amalgam .ted Society of Engineers decided to sup port the railway men, but the Cape Town branch of the Railwaymen's Union de rided not to strike, and the railwaymen at East London to take no drastic action till a general hallot had been held. A Committee of Public Safet...
