OBITUARY. MRS J. RICHARDSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 28 February 1914
OBITUARY. MRS J. RICHARDSON. The remains of the late Mrs Richard- son, to whose death we referred in our last issue, were interred in the family grave in the Ararat Cemetery on Thurs- day. The cortege, which was a lengthy one, moved from Gorrinn at noon, and the body was taken to Holy Trinity Church, Ararat, of the com- munion of which Mrs Richardson had been a member since the church's foun- dation. The burial service of the church was conducted by the Rev. H. E. Noltenius, B.A., and the hymn, "Peace, Perfect Peace," was sung, and the "Dead March" from ''Saul,'' played by the organiste, Mrs Megaw. The cortege then moved to the ceme- tery, where the service was concluded. The pall-bearers were the Hon. Theo. Beggs, M.L.C., Dr. Haynan, Mr W. E. P. Austin, Cr G. Vanstan, Messrs J. D. Clarke, R. Hargreaves, M. McPherson, &nbsp; and H. H. Banfield, and the coffin was borne to the grave by Messrs C. Arm- strongs, J. Austin, A. Bates and J. H. Austin. The coffin, which was of oak,...
ARARAT ASYLUM. COST OF LIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 28 February 1914
ARARAT ASYLUM. COST OF LIGHTING. Mr Toutcher, M.L.A., on Thursday introduced a deputation from the Ara- rat Borough Council to Mr Murray, the Chief Secretary, in regard to the electric light supply to the local Asy- lum. The deputation stated that the cost of the lighting of the Asylum was only half what had been anticipated, and the council was afraid they would have aloss on the year's working. The Chief Secretary's Department had pre- viously estimated that £450 per year would be expended on the Ararat Asy- lum for lighting, but it now appeared that the expenditure would be only half that amount; in fact, it only amounted to about one-third of what had previously been paid for gas. Mr Murray promised consideration to the representations on receipt of a writ- ten communication from the council, which he would present to the Cabinet. The main question appeared to him to be that they wanted relief owing to the decrease of revenue from the light- ing of the Asylum.

LICENSES REDUCTION BOARD. SITTINGS AT ARARAT. THE FATE OF ARARAT HOTELS. BOARD TO VISIT AGAIN IN APRIL. The sittings of the Licenses Reduc tion Board, in connection with the de privation of several of the Ararat ho tels of their licenses, were continued on THURSDAY-THIRD DAY. Superintendent Canty appeared for the Crown, and the members of the board in attendance were Messrs Ro bert Barr (chairman), and Thomas F. Cumming, with Mr W. H. Banks as secretary. The first case taken was the SHIRE HALL HOTEL. Senior-constable Tucker said the Shire Hall Hotel was situate in Barkly street. The owner of the hotel was Mr Walter Deans (as executor of the will of the late Mr F. Battye), and the licensee was Kathleen E. Phelan. The hotel was a single storey brick place, with a frontage of 53 feet, by a depth of 421 feet. There were ten rooms in the house, three bedrooms being available for the public. The hotel was very well conducted, and was patronised by the working class and farmers. There was ...
VICTORIA HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 28 February 1914
VICTORIA HOTEL. The second case taken.was the &nbsp; Victoria Hotel. Senior-constable Tucker deposed that the licensee was Normnan W. Wightwick and the owner Matthew Morrely. It was partly a two-storey brick building with a frontage of 44 feet. The house contained 18 rooms, including ten bedrooms available for the public. The house was in very good condition; well furnished, and very well conducted. The bedrooms were large, and would accommodate 20 odd persons. He was of the opinion, that the hotel in ques tion was required. It should be the last one to be closed; the Shire Hall Hotel should go before it on account of the accommodation provided at the &nbsp; Victoria Hotel. Matthew Morrely, Ballarat West, said he was the proprietor of the &nbsp; Victoria Hotel, which he bought straight out. He had a bona fide offer for the hotel. He had not accepted it, but it would be a fair return on his specula tion. He was sure the walls would carry another storey. As lan...

CATIICaT CENTRAL dNEW DEEPENING OF THE 8BAFT. WASHI EXTRACTION TO PROCEED AS USUAL. Uncommonly- profitable results L?ve boon shown by the Catheart Central Company since the mine arrived ,t the productive stage..- Sine the frt: tividend ws declared in July last, six distributions, amounting to 12/ per l:are, or a total of £3'?,000, have been made, while th e amnoubt paid up pcr thare is 6/10. For that result about 7000 fathoms of wash have been treat. cd, and the avorage value of the ta.h up to the end of the company's last -it ancial period was over £. per fathom. Since the payment made in DervOmbcr last there has been an interruption in profit distributions, and the question is whether the company did not go ahead too fast in the matter of wash extrac. tion and dividend payment.

The financial position to-day is that there io about £3000 in hand, and the idea of the boar...

THE GROWTH OF MEDICAL TRADE UNIONISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 3 March 1914
THE GROWTH Or MEDICAL TRADE UNIONISM. The status of-the assistant medichl officer has now emerged for discussiozi from the medical co the lay press, and it is noteworthy that thepoint seized on is that movement for combination among the assistant medical officers of public mental hospitals which was re cently described in full in the " Hos pital." The truth is that, from a va siety of circumstances this new associ ation-the junior staffs of mental hos pitals-is but the symptom of a gone ral trend, and the year 1914 may well prove to mark the beginning of a gec, ral trade union movement in modern medicine. Too long shy of this par ticular term, the profession has now been forced to face the fact that the despised term involves privileges not secured by any less frank title. The fact that the British Medical Associa tion was the official organisation of the profession without being a registered trade union gave the National Medical Guild and more lately the National Medical Union thei...
