THE CRESWICK ADVERTISER ESTABLISHED 1853. TUESDAY, APRIL 28, 1914 [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 28 April 1914

THE CRliSWICK ADVERTISER ESTABLISHED 1U53, Tukdav, A r-i; i I. 2S, 1 y 14 It hiving been reported that there was a likelihood of a change being made in the existing mail route by road between Creswick and Newstead, at the beginning of the month the Creswick Shire and iiorough Councils decided, on the grounds of the in convenience that wuuld be caused, to protest against any change. We notice that the Postal department is now calling for fresh tenders for the conveyance of the mails, providing for the present service and no less than five alternative services. The accept ance of any of the latter would certainly cause iiiconveniencc, as mentioned iu these columns a few weeks ago. It appears as if the authorities arc endeavoring to effect cconoti.y, and v.-e would applaud them in their effort providing it were not attained at the expense of efficiency of service and the lessening of the exist ■ ing facilities possessed by persons residing along the route.

MERIT RECOGNISED. PRESENTATION TO SERGEANT AND MRS. ROBINSON. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 28 April 1914

MERIT RECOGNISED, j PRESENTATION TO SERGEANT AND MRS. ROBINSON. Alter being in charge ul the Cren wicl: police for about four years. Sergeant \V. H. Robinson was re cently promoted und placed in charge ut Ballarat East. The genial sergeant was well known throughout the dis trict, for he spent many years as a constable in Kingston. The capable discharge of his duties, his courteous ness and kindliness, and his ideal citizenship earned for him the friend ship of all with whom he came in contact, and the recognition by the police authorities of his ability is shown by his promotion in the service. The suggestion that a (arewell social and presentation be made to Sergeant ind Mrs Robinson was no sooner made than it was warmly taken up by a large number of friends, and the ladies gave their co-opcration to the movement. The farewelt function took place in the town hall on Friday evening last, when there was a very large gathering, which was representative of Cresivick and the whole of I ...

THE SENATE PRE-ELECTION. I a.— | ISSUES AT STAKli. ! The ballot for the candidates who are to contest the Victorian Seuate seats in the interest of the Liberal parly closes this week. Many Liberals may be tempted to under-ratc the importance of the issues at stake. They note tint in iijio the vote for the Seuate was ticket pure and simple; tint in 191,; it was solid ticket in five of the six States. They note, further, tliat a man of mailt like Sir Josiah Symon failed ignominiously when he ran as an Independent, and that a number of very obscure and somewhat feeble candidates were relumed by Labor, simply and solely because lli.y were "officially endorsed." ''Names have lost their weight," they reflect, "men like Symon and the late Sir William Lytic fell when without solid parly hackmii;; a new comer defeated Sir j John Ouick on his own ground, when the .swing of the parly pendulum favored the tyro.
