Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 9 May 1917

Correspondence.   Dear Sir, In these days of chivalry, a man is apt to be condemned for attacking the sincerity of some women, but, under the circumstances of which I will write, I hope that your readers   will excuse me. I am dictating this letter for the benefit of Miss Katie Wellner, of Walpeup, and her sister Mrs. Heyland of Tempy. These two women seem to be determined to do me as much damage as possible socially, so to give them their chance of doing it publicly, and not in the dirty, mean, contemptible, under- hand way in which they appear to delight in, I will make myself plain.   In the first place, I am accused of being to blame for a little trouble which Miss Wellner had some time ago. I say emphatically that I am not, and tell those concerned to take the matter to its proper place if they think otherwise. Of Mrs. Heyland I must say that I am surprised to hear her on the gossip again. Some time ago this lady started other yarns, but w...

Included in a pamphlet which has been issued entitled " War Savings Certificates, what they are and how to get them," is the following strik ing statemeut :-The taking of these War Savings Certificates by the great masses of the people will have a pro tound eflect upon their future wel fare. It will at one stroke convert them from tribute payers into tribute receivers.

The financial burdens of this great war will be col ossal, and this and the next gener ation will have to bear them.

Local and General. As anticipated for some time past, the work of the central executive of the V.F.U. is proving too much for one man to do, and an assistant secretary is requisite temporarily at least To this position Mr. Harold Glowrey has been appointed, which we may take as a compli- ment to Ouyen.

East Riding Election. MR. BROWN RETURNED. As we anticipated, considerably moro interest was shown in the eleo tion to fill the vacancy in the Wal peup shire council caused by the death of Cr. Farrell. Friends of the two.candidates worked hard to secure the return of their choice, and excite ment was kept up until the fminal return, that from Yellumjip, came in. As will be seen below, Mr. Brown led at Ouyen, Walpeup and Yellum jip, while Mr. Glowrey had Bouika only in .his favor, Galah egqually dividing its choice. It was nearly five o'clock when the Ouyen result was known, and this gave Mr. Brown a lead of 18; Galah and Boulka came next, and Mr. Glowrey led by two. Then Walpeop gave the younger candidate a lead of 10, and finally, Yellumjip, with a unanimous call for Brown, placed the decision. The following are the respective totals : BEowar. GLOwuEE.

Please Explain. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 23 May 1917

Please Explain. We have said it before, and occasion proves the correctness. For down right foolbeadedness, commend usto Government departments. There is a desperate effort to get as much wheat to the seaboard as possible in as short a time as possible. In this laudable desire, some brilliant intel lect in the Railway department shought it would help things to run lotbg trains with two engines, from Ouyen to Woomelang. The first of these doubleheaders ran on Thursday last, drawing, with the van included, 40 vehicles. Will someone please tell us where the advantage is? It takes two engines coupled together, to draw 40 vehicles one of which car ries.the guard only, when each of those engines woul.d pull 20 full trucks-and the van over the same track. Thus to save a van and guard, two engines and crews are utilised to pull one truck less of whea t! And that is economy and rushing the wheat away. Apart from the absolute waste, it would be most interesting to know how the track is standi...
