SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 22 May 1914
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times," reported, when the "Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps, consigned to Bombay Town Hall, went to the bottom. The report concluded by saying that, "dredging- operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt, that in the event of one of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in tact." The sequel to this (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered, only 4 per cent. - were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.

Mr. Watt on the "Age" Newspaper. A DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 29 May 1914
Mr. Watt on the "Age" Newspaper. A DECLAR,\TION OF INDEPEND ENCE. At St. Arnaud on Thursday last the Premier (Mr. W. A. Watt) and the member for Essendon and Coburg was very severe on the "Age" newspaper. Mr: Wat.t in the courise of his remarks said: "I want to say hero to the pco ple of Victoria and the 'Age' news paper, that we do not intend to allow t;he proprietors of that -journal or their employees to· dictate and say to us Parliament or thie people of this coun how we will punt our policy before the try. This Government intends to pro :eed in the way it thinks best for the protection and development of the in terests of the people of the State.

A Judge's Opinion. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 29 May 1914
A Judge's Opinion. Recently at an examination of an insolvent at the Insolvoncy Court the .ludge remarked that. it was a great pity a law was not passed compelling business people to keep proper hooks of account. This remark had its ori gin from the fact that of the huIndreds of insolvencies that occur the greater proportion of them are caused indirect ly through the inaccurate and carolcss book-keeping or the entire absence of hooks of account. It is astonishing the number of business people one comes across who do not keep books of ac count. These depend on memory to a large extent, and have files of receipts and accounts more or less incomplete, and perhaps a riough memorabldum book to aid them in their laborious calculation. The usual answer to thle question. "Why don't you keep books or employ someone to do them is t.hat they know how they stand and are quite satisfied with the information they have got. This is all very well. but. when the time comnes, as it surely will, to ob...

The Progress of Coburg. Since it has lbeen definitely decided to run the eleetric tranmway along Syd ney rond; Coburg, the district has bhowvn new vigor andi vitality. All over the locality buildings are being erectedl. A year or two ago most of the buildings were being oercted aroiund the terminus of the cable tramn at. 3foreland. because of the proximity of the cable traim: but the near ap proach of electric traction has changed all that.
