San Remo. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 July 1915

Sail Remo. A child en's court was held in San San Ki me on 2nd inst., before Crs Mcllv/ia'th and McFee. J's.P. A boy of seventeen from the Burwood Home, Newhaven, charged with breaking into a house at Rhyll, was sentenced to a shoit term of detention which will probably be spent in one of the State industrial schools. A Woolamai conespondent of the " Powlett Express " suggests that an old time Australian explorer should be honored by changing the name of San Remo to Hovell, as Cnpt.ain Hovell's visit to Westernport in 1824 did some thing towards bringing the place into notice. There are' various ir.efhods by which that good explorer's name could be held in remembrance, but why alter the euphonious appelation "San Remo" in the way proposed? If a Mr Mug had performed distin guished services for Woolamai that would be no justification for changing the euphonious " Woolamai " to Mugs ville This correspondent's proposition is not likely to catch on. The people of San Remo do not want to ...

Sale of Coal to the Public. SOME SMALL SEAMS ABANDONED .WORKING SMALL SEAMS AT A LOSS. DEPUTATION TO BE ARRANGED. At the Wonthaggi Borough Council meeting on Monday a discussion took place regarding the urgent -necessity of making coal from the State coal mine available to the public. The Mayor (Or McMahon) said that the public meeting had decided on a deputation and they should go ahead with the matter. Many- of the employes of the mine who were working the small coal seams, wen receiving less than wages, some as low as 4s and 5s, because the amount allowed by the Railway department for the coal was not sufficient to pay wages. If this coal were sold to the public a larga price would be received, and the public would still get very cheap coal. It was a scandalous state as affairs, and the Government ?hould put the coal on the matket. He moved that a deputation be arranged and that the public be invited to attend on it.

State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign MEN ARE URGENTLY" NEEDED. (By R. J. M.). ARTICLE NO. 1. Last night in a cafe a foreigner- j a neutral-said to me: "You will not get many more Australians to go to the war unless you have conscription." Because he was a foreigner and might have misinterpreted as boasting the indignant denial that rose to my lips I let the remark pass. But among ourselves we cannot afford to ignore what our foreign fel low-citizens think of our valor and patriotism. We will rot send a sufficiency of re inforcements to the fighting line in Gallipsli unless by national compul sion ! Are wc behaving so that the impartial observer can think that of us ?

Many people suffer from common ail ments, such as rheumatism, gout, neu ralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indiges tion, biliousness, jaundice, sic!; headache, general debility, gravel, stone or bladder troubles, who do not know that their suffering may be due to the retention in the system of uric and biliary poisons.

OF RURAL INTEREST (by "'Rusticus.") The Agricultural reporter of tlio '"Leader'reccnt-ly dealt with a ques tion which at the present time is of vital importance to rural industries. It is therefore fitting that the article should lind a place ill this column. The writer says : Tliat 011 tlie whole it pays the dairy farmer to support the local co-operative Luittor factory rather than the condeus sery is the verdict of some of our most experienced agriculturists of the West ern districts. The main reason on which this verdict is based is the fact that the inability of tlie. eoudensevy supplier to rcai-pigs and calves involves him in I ?a greater loss than is represented by the higher price paid for whole milk.
