Municipal History of Traralgon. No. II. Roads and Bridges—Opening of the Railway—Subdivision of Rosedale Shire—Early Councillors—Sale of Town Alotments. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 June 1914
Municipal History of Traralgon. No. II. 'Roads and Bridges-Opening of the Railway - Subdivision of Rosedale Shire-Early Councillors-Sale of Town Al lotments. (By W. WEST).: During the year 1874, the council decided to try the sys tem of maintaining the roads by contract, and with that end in view called for tenders- for the maintenance of a number of the roads. Amongst those let were the following: Traralgon to Rosedale, J. M'Mahon, £75 10s; Traralgon to Morwell, A. Mat thews, £39. Evidently very little was expected from the contrac tors, as the price quoted would not allow them to do muchl This was the first of many experi ments in that direction, noneof which could be said to be suc cessful. A .refcrcnce to a well-known Loy Yang land mark appears in the report of the February meet ing, in 1875, as at that meetirg a letter was received from Mr. W. Little, drawing attention to the obstruction on the road from the Bush' Inn, Loy Yang,- to the Flynn's Creek- forest,. and asking that t...
GIPPSLAND BACON FACTORY (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 June 1914
GIPPSLAND BACON FACTORY (To the Editor). Sir-I beg to contra,ddict the statement in a recent issue of yours, quoted in'the South Glpps land " Chromnicle," ot May 29, that the board proposes to confer with the G1ppsland and Northern Sell .ing and Insurance Co., with re gard to a proposition for the sale of our business to them. My boara knows nothifig of such a proposition. We behlieve that any sale or reconstruction can onl. re sult mn loss to the present share holders. IL the present board is incompetent, shareholders willbe afforded the opportunity of elect mng a new one on the 25th inst. Nine candidates have nommatea for the five seats, and postal vot ing is provided for. Let every shareholder vote, and select a board in whom theyb will have sufficient confidence to supply with raw material, and sufficient capital for trading purposes, and there will be no. need to talk of selling the factory. I believe that such a statement could only liave been 'made by an interested party to i...

HISTORICAL SKETCHES. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 June 1914
HISTORICAL SKETCHES. _.(To the Editor).. Slr,-My attention has been drawn to the following paragapii on early Traralgon history, pub hlshed in your issue of the 26th inst: " There are other names i which have no local or other| significance that. I know of, . such. as. Gwahla. Whence It| came, or what it stands for, I cannot say; but the pa-ne Bowen originally applied, representing the Governor of that penriod, would have been better." The facts concerning the name " Gwalia" are as follows: At the Traralgon shire council meetmng, which dealt at that particular time with the matter of local street no menclature, it was suggested that each councillor should permit his own surname to be so applied, a suggestion which several of the councillors complied with, . but which I personally thought could bet improved on by substituting the ancient name ("Gwahla") of my native land, "gallant little Wales." Your correspondent, X, is plainly no descendant of the principality, otherwise he could n...

ELECTRICITY. Something About the Yarram Scheme. The Yarram Butter Factory Co. installed an clectric hght;ng plant about three years ago. Since when the township has been lit with electricity, andpo\wer is also sup plied to a number of residents for various purposes. Mr. Tom. Whlut ney, a former resident of Traral gon, and who is well known to most of the people, is the secre tary to the company and, being on a visit to Traralgon, Mr. Clarkson, president of the Progress Assocla tion, and Cr.

"THE LITTLE GRAVE." A JUVENILE PRIZE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 June 1914
"THE LITTLE GRAVE." -o0 A JUVENILE PRIZE STORY, We have been able to unearth the following storyette, to which reference has been made in the course of the discussion as to the identity of the child's grave in the Traralgon railway reserve. It was written in 1887 by Master T. A. Pettit, now proprietor and edi tor of the Warragul " Guardian," for a competition prize offered by the proprietor of a Shepparton paper. The M.S.S. which won the prize, was endorsed with a cer tificate by Mr. Dwyer, then the head teacher of the Traralgon State school, dated December 17, 1887, and setting forth that the writer of the story was twelve years 8 months old, and that the yarn was, to the best of his be lief, the boy's own composition. The simple narrative affords a clue to the impression of some per sons that the child bufied in the old graveyard was actually drow ned in the creek, and was not, therefore, one of Constable Smythe's family. The story was published in "The Journal" in 1887, and was a...
