MAFFRA SHIRE WORKS. At the last meeting of the Maifra Shire Council the engineer reported: The tenders invited to-day for your consideration include the bank forma tion near Stagg's, Heyfleld held over from last year. Licola-road.-The bush fires burnt two culverts at Hick ey's Creek, and brought down a num her of trees across the track. Men were put on to take off the timber and to make the road passable for traffic. Mr. R. Gilder filled up the chasm left by one of the burnt cul verts, so that traffic would not be stopped.. I am informed that Messrs. Armour and Fullerton saved two bridges at Hickey's Creek, by carry ing water from the river to extinguish the burning timbers. Such timely ac tion deserves the best thanks of the council, as well as adequate reward. I have already put on men to effect repairs on Clenmaggie to Glenfalloch road, under the -rant of £100 recent ly voted by the Country Roads Board.

A "NOT NEGOTIABLE" CHEQUE. PAYMENT STOPPED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 March 1914

A "NOT NEGOTIABLE" CHEQUE. -----------a~----- - PAY.MENT STOPPED. In the Practice Court last week the law as to dealing with a "not ne gotiable ' cheque was explained in connection with an action by the Union Bank of Australia to determine property and value in such a docu ment, which .it had received from one John Oliver. According to the plead Ings, Oliver was a slaughterman, who was in the habit of buying sheep- and cattle, and supplying carcases of meat to Robert Shulte, a meat salesman, trading as Stone and Co. In settle ment of a consignment of meat that Oliver advised Shulte was to be sent to him, Shulte sent Oliver a cheque for £258/17"4, marked "not negoti able.:' This Oliver paid into the bank. Rut when the meat for which the cheque was to pay did not arrive, Shulte stopped payment, and he was at length sued by the bank for the recovery of the money and interest. Mr. Justice A'Beckett said that in the circumstances he felt no doubt that Oliver could not have recovered paym...

ARBITRATION DELAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 March 1914

ARBITRATION DELAYS. To most of us it seems to read like a ghost of the past to read in the daily newspaper reports of proceedings in connection with the Brisbane Train way strike, writes our .Melbourne cor respondent. Mr. Justice Hliggins gave a decision which was hailed as a vic tory for the strikers, but the fact was overlooked that appeals were prompt ly lodged, and are now being heard. That is, they would be if it were not that Mr. Arthur, the counsel for the union, has, in conjunction with the union's solicitor, raised the objection that the decrees of the Arbitration Court are not subject to revision by the High Court. Holding- such beliefs as this, no wonder that Messrs. Ar thur and Brennan are known as the Iliggins twins. It is always, of course, possible that this view of the law may he right, and since to alter the Arbitration Act would be impossible under- present political conditions, thle only remedy will be to change the autocrat. Czar Htiggins and his un attackable de...

VICTORIAN MARBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 March 1914

VICTORIAN MARBLE. The Minister for Public Worlks (Mr. Hagelthorn), at the instance of the Australian Natives' Association, has had inquiries made in a number of directions as to the possibilities of development of the Victorian mlarble quarries. There was some conllict of opinion, but the impression prevailing amongst a numlber well qualified to judge was that there was not mnuch scope for the development of tile in dustry, on account of tile remlotenless of the fields from railway communica tion, and the heavy cost c f transport to a railway station. Very little hope was held out for the working up of an export trade. A company which for some time has been carrying on operations at South Buchan, in Eastern Gippsland, has practically demonstrated that, even with the natural disadvantages that have to be faced, there is a tield for the use of Victorian mlarble. This comlpany has entered into a contract to supply S00 tons of Ituchuan nmarble for use in the Commonwealth Offices il Lond...

THE GREAT GUN TRICK. POINT OF LAW RAISED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 March 1914

THE GREAT GUN TRICK. POINT OF LAW RAISED. Mr. Justice A'Beckett granted an order nisi on Friday in an exparte application for an order to review the decision of the Sale Court of Petty Sessions in dismissing a charge against William O'Connor of having carried a gun on Sunday, on the ground that pieces of a gun are not a gun. It was stated that Sergeant Hugh Neill, of Sale, saw O'Connor step from a boat on to the canal wharf at Sale carrying pieces of a gun in a leather case on Sunday, January 25. O'Connor was prosecuted, but the case was dismissed on the ground stated. Mr. 'Mann, who was instructed by the Crown solicitor. said that the whirligig of time had brought changes, and that practically all guns were nowadays carried in pieces unless they were being actually used. He urged that the parts of a firearm must be held to be a firearm, and that the lock, stock and barrel niade 'gun " just as much as the letters g-u-n. The order nisi was made returnable next Thursday week.-'' Heral...

LONDON TRAFFIC MAGNITUDE OF PROBLEM The sixth annual report of the Lon don Traffic Branch of the Board of Trade, issued last week as a Blue Book (Cd. 7190), indicates (say "The Times" of Janaury 16) the magnitude of the problem confronting the traffic authori ties of London.

FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

FREAK TROUSERS AMERICAN IDEA RIDICULED. Some of us (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 7) remember Mr I-Walter Passmore's exultant exclama tion in "The Earl and the Girl"-"It ain't the coat wot makes the man; why. demme, it's the trousers." So, evi dently, think certain sartorial experts in America, when they suggest, as we are told, that fashion is about to pre scribe to the "nuts" on the other side. nether garments that shall be "slashed" or "slit." just as women's skirts are. according to the prevailing vogue. Of course, the prospect of "slashed" trou sers opens up-as it were-endless pos sibilities, even to the average male mind. WTe seem to see visions of open work socks vastly more elaborately embroidered than they are now in Dudeland. Also do there seem to'loom up enchanting dreams of fairy foot wear, bejewelled shoe-strings, and dainty garte;s-with. perhaps. a bit of airy frilling thrown in. For, once you open the floodgates of fashion at the trousers seams from the knee ...
