A Four-mile Tunnel. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 3 November 1915
A Four-mile Tunnel. The Mont a "Or tunnel between Frnnce and Switzerland, on w&lt;hich boring operatione began nearly three years ago, was pierced a few days ago. At balf-pnat seven in tho evening- the two boring gangs which had been advancing from the Swiss the French sides met and shook hands, and it was found that the engineers had calculated tho cutting with the greatest accuracy. The tunnel, which is 8J miles Ion#, bores through the Jura mountains from Frasne to Vallorlie, thus ob viating an eleven-raiie detour by Pontnrlier, and should have been pierced two months ago. Tho work, however, was delayed by the tap ping of a numher of unsuspected springs which had been pumped dry. Tho outrush of water at onetime reached 2,200 gallons a second. It is hoped to open tho new line early next year. The line, by shortening tho journey from T'uria to Lausanne, will bring the winter re-sorts of tho •.Turn moimtains many hours nearer London.

Sir,—The committee of the Cressy mechanics' institute passed a resolution at its meeting on Saturday, 23rd October, au thorising its secretary to make application to the local manage ment of the "Secret of Holly bough " for a balance-sheet showing the receipts and expen diture in connection with the staging of their piece, and other expenses, which was considered to be necessary, owing to the small amount received. As the performance was advertised to be piven on behalf of the local Red Cross and the Mechanics' Insti tute, the public accorded it their loyal support, believing that they were contributing to a worthy cause. But keen disappointment was felt when, from a crowded audience, which was estimated to give £20 takings, and a most successful ball followed.

CRESSY. "WEDNESDAY. NOV. 3. Tub 11th December is the clay on which Labor asks Australia to walk into its little parlor. It wants the Constitution amended in a fashion which will give it the most extraordinary and far reaching powers. If only the electors will step into the little parlor, and Bay "Yes" to Labor's proposals, it will be a quite simple thine: to gratify the poli tical unionists, by using the tax payers' money to pay them higher wages for lees work. It will be quite easy, should that Beem de sirable to the political unionist, to declare any private undertak ing a monopoly and to nationalise 1 ! it. It will be quite easy to give I the railway men anything they may demand, and to leave the States, which own the lines and must run them, to make good the deficiency by raising freights on the small farmer, who is his own boss, and cannot be a political unionist. These are very wide powers; they might very easily be abused. Mr Hughes assures us that they will not be used in th...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 3 November 1915
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Referring to the recent dramatic performance, entitled "The Secret of the Hollybough," advertised to be given in aid of the Cressy Red Cross Society and the local. Mechanics' Institute, we think it desirable that the public should be informed that. our society only received the sum of £2 Os 6d, despite the fact that during an interval in the above performance a doll, flags, etc,, ' generously donated by Mr RofF Batterbury, were auctioned by Mr Chesterfield for and on behalf of the Red Cross Society, and. realised over £4. We are given to understand that the expendi ture incurred in producing the above performance was in excess of the receipts, notwithstanding the liberal patronage afforded by the public, consequently there was no surplus to distribute,. The point, however, that demands explanation is—Why the Red Cross Society only received a por tion of the mm realised oh the goodB sold on their behalf ? It is. obvious that the purchasers of the articles mentione...
