CIk Pioneer* CRESS'S. THURSDAY, FEB. 4. Tub people of GreMy and dls trict should wake up and endeavor to drive their town along. At a recent meeting of the Colsc shire council letters were received from five or more progress associations for various wants. The council deaii with them in a rational way. There were no requests from the Cretey Progress Association, al though the town's municipal re quirements are many and Urgent. On making enquiries we were told that the iocs! association Ut in a moribund state. At their last meeting only four residents, including the hon. secretary, Mr Macdonatd.were present.

COMMONWEALTH BY-SLKC TIONS. JIN OPPORTUNITY FOR LIBERALS Labor is in office to-day, pri marily, because the late Ministry refused a political truce. Rightly or wrongly, that was the mood of the majority, and as the mood has not materially changed some recent doings and saying* of Federal Ministers are regarded with very widespread disfavor. The average citizen, who is not a very keen party man, felt in. September last. as hi feels to day,that we ate face to face with a crisis so serious that sacrifices are enforced on all, and that, conscious of this, each section of the community, should refrain from any attempt to push its own special interests at the expense of the community as a whole^ In other words, he thinks that; whether an Australian Is soldier, •wheat grower, manufacturer dr. wage earner, he should be able id throw himself heart and soul Into the struggle to secure mar tial and industrial victory for the Empire, assured that no one of his countrymen will take advan tage of...

This j council could find work for stone ! breakers? on the heap of spalls at; | the bridge over the Woady Yal j lock river near Cressy. The heap j has been there for some time, j and no effort has been made to ? reduce it to metal suitable for the i repairing of the road, which is i in. a deplorable condition, over I the bridge. Perhaps the council f has forgotten all about the npalls, § or, perhaps, they intend to cover i them with'soil and make a rockery | of it.
