DEATH OF MR. R. G. ROW. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 2 June 1914
DEATH OF MR. R. G. ROW. The many friends of Mr. Richard Goldsbrough Row will hear with regret of his death, after a short illness, at his residence, "The Rest," Thompson street, Abbotsford. Mr. Row about a week ago was seized with an attack of gout, but seemed to be recovering on Saturday night. He was reading a newspaper at 11.30 p.m., but half an hour later he suddenly expired from heart failure. The deceased gentleman who was 53 years of age, was very well known in the city. He was at one time prominently associated with the well-known wool firm of Messrs Golds brough and Co., aild later with Young husband, Row and Co. Pty. Lyd , but for some years had been connected with the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency and Co. Ltd. as wool expert. Mr. Row was a most enthusiastic sup porter of racing, and for the last 20 years has been a member of the com mittee of the Victorian Amateur Turf Club.

NED. KELLY AT LOY YANG. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 2 June 1914
NED. KELLY AT LOY YANG. In front of the mart, on Satur day afternoon, Mr. Allan Walker, Mr. T. Powell, and Mr. D. J. M'Carthy discussed the articles which have appeared in these co lumns. .1 ; Mr. T. Powell jokingly said the writer should try and be correct, and Mr. Allan Walker replied that he thought the statements were pretty correct. '? Pointing to the street i® front ot the Colonial Bank, Mr. Walker said here used to be an immense stump there. It took two ot Mr,. Drane's bullock teams to shift it, and it was pitched over the bank where the shire hall now stands. He did not know what became of. it afterwards. ' " Oh,' said Mr. Powell, " it was Covered over, and the shire hall was built on it I" They spoke of Mr. Robert Mill, *vho used to own, a selection at Loy Yang, and then too kup land at Traralgon creek, the farm now ownea by Mrs. Toner.

Municipal History of Traralgon. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 2 June 1914
^Municipal Histery of Traralgon. (By W. WEST).' The history of the shire of Traralgon properly commences from October, 1879, that be«ng the date upon which the constitu- 1 tion ot the shire was formally au- ! thonsed by the Governor-in-coun cil. As, however, Traralgon had municipal representation prior to that time, any review of its his tory would not be complete with out some reference to t-hose earner years. I shall, therefore, make some fragmentary references to matters which occurred prior to its constitution as an independent body. Traralgon's first connection with local government goes back to May 19, 1869. On that day, now over 45 years ago, the Rosedale Road Board was constituted, and of the. very extensive area placed under its jurisdiction Traralgon formed a part. At that period Traralgon was an unpretentious village, consisting of not more than ten houses, distributed equ ally on both sides ot the creek. The surrounding country was generally held in extensive areas, and ...

An Historical Sketch. "THE LITTLE GRAVE." WHOSE IS IT? V. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 2 June 1914
An Historical Sketch. 'THE LITTLE GRAVE. WHOSE IS IT? V. As a good deal of doubt and conflict has unexpectedly arisen regarding the occupant ot the tiny .mound in the old cemetery in the railway irteserve, -I have collec ted further facts which establish beyond doubt that the traditiqn is true in regard to Constable Smythe's child. Mr. and Mrs. J. Campbell, of " The Retreat," knew the Smythe family well, and were on terms of neighbourly intimacy with them; they attended the fu neral ot the infant, and saw it buried in the grave, which was dug by Messrs! J. Hoddmott ana , Joseph Newman. Mr. Hoddinott's father, by the way, was then the owner of the Traralgon run, be I fore it "was sold to Messrs. Golds I borough, Row and Co., for whom one present townsman, Mr. T. H. Row, was appointed manager. Mr I Newman held a femall block bn the i creek, and his brother married a ' sister of Mr. Ralph Liddiard, who subsequently selected the land upon which he now resides, with his sister, Mrs. M'Na...

TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 1914. A Spelling "bee'' was held in connection with the Methodist Young People's Union on Thurs day evening. The competition was both interesting and amusing, and provided a good' evening. Mr Griffiths was the adjudicator, and he had a long list bf words culled from that day's " Argus." This was exhausted, and then resource was made to the dictionary. Miss Chappeli carried off the honors. A vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Griffiths.

MUNICIPAL PLEASANTRIES "I SAY YOU'RE A LIAR." [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 2 June 1914
MUNICIPAL PLEASANTRIES SAY YOU'RE A LIAR." The usual pleasant relations of the Morwell shire council' were seriously disturbed at its meet ing on Wednesday last. Councillor Radburn moved that in future the council meetings be held at Yinnar. It appears that Councillor Rad burn had made some unpalat able remarks in the press, and made further assertions at the council table that were resented. Councillor English said he had not intended to speak on the ques tion, but Councillor Radburn's speech was the poorest he had ever heard. The only thing he has done since he has been in the council is to hold the council up to ridicule. Look at his motion about the pay ,of the Victorian police; it was positively ridiculous. It was on a par with the supposed rea sons for shifting the place bf !meet ing. He has never been any good since he has been in the council; at least we can't look upon his past actions as ot any value. The desire of everyone, except Coun cillor Radburn has been to do the be...

BLIND ENTERTAINMENT. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 2 June 1914
BLIND ENTERTAINMENT. j (To the Editor). Sir,-To clear away any misap prehension, allow me a couple of explanatory remarks on the foot note on my letter re the above, as published in your last issue:-(1). My request for a charitable con cession had a blank refusal from the secretary, without any men tion or reference to the commit tee; 1 did not attempt to dis cuss the objection at all, but at once waited on the president, with better result. (2). On seeing the members of the committee after the appearance of the notice that " free" use of the hall had been granted, for the Empire service, commenting on its inconsistency, ! l was assured they knew nothing of it, and am "certain they did not. That the mistake has been recti fied since I called public atten tion to it is alright; the funds ot the institute benefit, and it is a matter for congratulation all round. £ Yours etc., T. A. PETTIT, Hon. Sec.
