EAST GIPPSLAND TIMBER RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 March 1914

EAST GIPPSLAND TIMBER RESOURCES. It is the intention of the Minister for Public Works (Mlr. Hagelthorn) to confer shortly with the Minister for Forests (Mr. Drysdale Brown) on the steps to be taken to develop the timber industry in East Gipps land. A committee of officers of the two departments will probably be appointed to make extensive in quiries. The main question to be considered is whether it is worth while spending a large sum of money on port improvements at Mallacopota or Gabo Island, when the forest could be tapped from Orbost, to which place the railway is now being extended from Bairnsdale. By constructing a new line from 10 to 15 niles long, the heart of the forest can be reached. The Rail ways Commissioners and persons en gaged in the timber trade will be invited to excpress their views, and the committee pf experts will, a? soon after it is appointed as pos sible, make an inspection of the whole of the timber area in ques tion. When it has completed its inquiries and ...

WHY ARE WE STANDING STILL To the Editor Gippsland Mercury [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 March 1914

WHY ARE WE STANDING STILL To the Editor Gippsland Mercury Sir,-Taking as my text the ques tion, "Why are we standing still?' I would, with your kind permission like to offer a few suggestions tha might help; to rstir up those in position to give the good old towr "of Sale a push along. In the firs place, I would point to the fact tha. the population of the town is abpu the same as it was over a quarter o a century ago. Why? The place has not gone back; but that is no art gument why it should not move for ward. It is a solid town; but so lidity should not be made synony. mous with stolidity. It is literal. surrounded with rivers, the Thomp son, the Latrobe, the Olengarry anc Macalister. The climate is good! (The present season is an exception it has been unseasonable all over the State.) The man on the land is;prosperous; in very many instances wealthy. In commercial life there are many successe&s, and failures are as yrare as the lyre-bird. Then what is lacking ? Public-spir...

DROWNING FATALITY. Tile "Advertiser" states that on Thursdav morning, about a quarter to 7, ,ir. George Bearham, M.A., a teacher in the Bairnsdale High School, went to the river with some schoolboys to have a iS'im. Among the number was a lad named Edwin Wright, 16 years of age, \\ho boarded with Mr. Bearhliam. After 'being in the water with a small boy, whom he was teaching to swim, Mr. Bearham came out 'and dressed himself and then returned to the river to call the boys out. As Wright was pot in the water nor about the river bank, Mr. Bearhamin inquired where "he was. All he could learn was that the last seen of Wright was when :he was ob served near the spring board. Mr. Bearham repaired Ito the beatshed to see if the missing lad had dressed and gone away, but finding his clothes there ihe could not account for the lad's sudden disappearance.

ABSENCE OF SECTARIANISM. APPRECIATION BY THE BISHOP OF SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 March 1914

ABSENCE OF SECTARIANISM. -4---- APPRECIATION BY THE BISHOP OF SALE. The Most Rev. Dr. Phelan, Bishop of Sale, prefaced his sermon at St. Mary's Cathedral on Sunday by a reference to the kindly feeling ex isting in Sale between citizens of all denominations, arid the com plete absence of that prolific mother of strife, Sectarianism. I have completed my first year in Sale, he said, and I consider it my duty to give public testimony to the perfect harmony which prevails amongst 'all sections of the com munity. I have hot read or heard a word, nor witnessed an action, nor "hadi reason for a thought, cal culated to lead me to cany conclu sion but this-that the religious bodies in Sale are attending to their own business, ,and not interfering with their neighbours'. Heaven only knows that Christianity, the re ligion established on earth by Jesus Curist, has enemies enough in the world, the flesh and the devil; and t is sad to see those who call them selves Christians bringing joy to hell,...

GIRLS AS JUDGES COMMUNITY RUN BY CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 March 1914

OIRLS AS JUDOES COMMUNITY RUN BY CHILDREN. A London magistrate was presen' when the court of the Little Common wealth at Flowers Farm, Batcombe, sat at the week-end to investigate certain charges which had been brought against the citizens of the unique com muntiy amongst the hills of Dorset shire (says thle Dorchester correspan dent of the "Daily Chronicle"). In this community a number of chil dren-whose characters are not unble mnished, they having been sent to the farm from various juvenile courts throughout the country-are framing their own laws, administering their own punishments, devising their own stan dards of conduct, and evolving a sys tem of life unchecked by any authority beyond that exerted by their own pub lic opinion. They have a judge - a girl of 13-and the Commonwealth con stable is by no means physically the most poweful inmate of the farm; in deed, it is recorded that on the night of his appointment he was requested to see that a delinquent retired to bed at a ce...

WOMAN SUFFRAGE DEMAND FOR GOVERNMENT MEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 March 1914

WOMAN SUFFRAGE D)EIMAND FOR G;OVEIINMENT MEASURE. (By Mrs M. G. Fawcett, in "Daily - News and Leader.") All the suffrage societies, whatever their fundamental differences as to me thods, are now agreed that in order to obtain the object which they have in common a Government measure is a necessity. They are unanimously of the opinion that a private member's Bill is no good, and that those who ,xould persuade them to the contrary, at this stage in the history of the move ment, are simply trifling with the sub ject. All that can be done to promote wvomen's suffrage by means of private menibers' Bills has been done. I will. not -say it has been useless: far from it. It has been good, for purposes of propaganda, to draw attention to the fact that "the people" consist of men and Women, and thattoenfranchise only one half of '"the people" is a very im perfect and..lop-sided interpretation of- democracy; the meetings in support -of the various - private members Bills and. the debates upon ...
