It was recently stated that the Labor party will not put forwvard a candidate to oppose Mr. Bennett the present Liberal mehilber for Glppsland in the Fe8'er'al Parhia ment at the next elections. It has also been said-that there were no nominations for selection In response to the call made some time ago, and that the party ;vould give ,Mr.. Wise a straight rtin against the Liberal member. It now appears that this somewhat circumstatial story was premature An official of the party informs us that there is no foundation for the story. This individual states that two or three candidates responded to the invitation to nominate for selection, but the choice of a La bor candidate to carry the party banner has been deferred unitil the reconsrucion of he Federal Cam paign Committee, and the State Electorate Committee. The pre vious system of selectming candida tes and conducting an election campaign, is said to have beefimn sa...

fIT-E COURSING SEASON. -~,----o ' TRARALGO]~. CLUB. SC RCITY O HARES. The coursing season has com menced, and judging by the big stakes being~ .offered, it looks as it dog owners are mn for a good time this season. All over the State there seems to be a tcndency to increase the stakes. There are a lot ot good dogs in the Traral gon district this year, and se veral local lovers of the leash sent in an entry for the big Wer ribec ,geeting last week. How ever, they were not very success ful. Mr. R. Cochrane's dog won the first round, but was defeated mn theisecond ties. Mr. Jack Bur ton also won a round with his nomination; but the other local dogs were defeated in the first run. The winner is owned by Mr. Chirnside, 'and was trained by, Messrs. Stuckey Bros., of Flynn's Creek, who have the happy knack of turning their .dogs out in the pink of condition. The Traralgon club has had ra ther a unique experience.

MOONDARRA. The four State schools of Har ris, Jubilee, Moondarra and Gould celebrated Empire Day on Friday and the distnrict was en fete. Em pire Day comes on the .very verge ot winter in the Antipodes, the days are nearly at their shortest, and winter weather often prevails. How different it is mn the northern Hermsphere where they have the beautiful summer, and are within Jess than a month of the longest day l Enthusiasm under the lat ter condition is spontaneous, but under the former'it is often mai red by cold winds and rain, and sometimes hail and snow. Under these circumstances it might be advisable to consider the changing of our time pf celebration, and have it m the spring, when nature rejoices with us, instead of having it at the approach of winter. The weakest link in the Moe Walhalla railway has just been re moved, and replaced by something substantial-a deviation mn the line .at Harris, 800 feet long and 80 teet off the old trac khas been put mn by Ganger Reid and his m...
