The Journal. FRIDAY, JUNE 19, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 June 1914

m JanruHl FRIDAY, JUNE 19, 1914. Road Foreman.-Evidence ot the need ot a capable and consci-, entious working foreman,. in the Traralgon shire, is forthcoming in the state of the first section of the Melbourne road, which was formed and sanded a few years'. ago. There are now numerous holes in the road, which is fast going to ruin ; yet there is main tenance gravel alongside. Henry St., Breed. St., Argyle St., and. the west end ot Hotham St., also supply material for thought. The short length ot road on the south side ot the level crossing, near Mr. Duffy's residence, has been in a wretched state' for years. The forming, with good crown, of a few chains of toad, and a good coat ing ot gravel, would effect a much needed transformation at a small cost. It our councillors would give the "stitch in time," method ! of "caring for roads a show, they I would be surprised at the marked1 improvement and 'the reduced cost'" »t maintenance. We don't (suggest, 'that more money will be required ...

EARLY TRARALGON.

In respect to the identity of the graves of those who died in. or near, the township when it was in what might be termed the i.ib and tucker period of its existence, local interes' appears to centre about that wi.lrn the Railway Reserve.

COUNCILLORS DIFFER. ABOUT A ROAD ROLLER. A MATTER OF A FEW POUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 June 1914

COUNCILLORS DIFFER, i \ ' . ABOUT A ROAD ROLLER. A MATTER OF_A FEW POUNDS. The Rosedale shire shire council has a road roller, but it is not heavy enough for making aj good,hard surface. The Country. Roads Board attaches very greati importance "to the rolling of newt metalled or gravelled roads, and! urges the use of a heavy roller. A couple bf tnonths ago, the en-j gineer (Mr -Keys) informed thet councilthat a heavy roller was necessary for the roads, which had) been authorised under the Country, Roads Board's scheme. At the May meeting of thei council the Rosedale riding re presentatives wanted a Champion' steel roller, costing. £137, ordered at 'once, but the Toongabbie re presentatives declined to contri bute 'anything towards the cost." Their contention was - .that as all the Road Boara jobs were in the Rosedale 'riding, the cost of the roller should- be paid for by that riding. The old roller, they said, would serve their purpose . very, well. As the Board had not taken; over ...

MUCH ADOO! ABOUT A .SMALL . MATTER. THE NAMBROK POLLING BOOTH. Residents of Nambrok and the Rosedale shire council have been very concerned for the past few! months about the position of thei Nambrok polling booth. It ap pears that when the Nambrok hall' was built some years ago, it was made a polling booth for the shirej elections. Later, the Pines hall was made a polling booth for one) election, and then subsequently the Nambrok hall again obtained the honor. Prior, to the last munii cipal elections, the shire secretary, thinking that the Pines hall had been made the polling place, ad vertised to that effect. Residents ot Nambrok were very indignant, and characterised the moving of the polling place as a deliberate) insult. For years past there has been a good deal of friction bet ween the two centres, and the .latest incident re-Opened the old sore. ^ Some months ago, Councillor Kenevan moved to have the Nam brok hall permanently fixed at the polling place, but councillors were s...

The Federal Arena. FNTRY OF MR WATT. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 19 June 1914

The Federal Arena. FNTRY OF MR WATT. The decision of Mr. Watt to throw hirr^self into Federal politics has given satisfaction to the Li beral party throughout the Com monwealth. The feeling of La borites can be gauged by the vitu peration heaped upon Mr. Watt by various members of- the party. Speaking at Kensington, Mr. Fenton, M.H.R., said that in one sense he was glad that Mr. Watt had been induced to enter Fede ral politics, " because his entry? jnto the Federal- sphere will put our folk into the fighting humor. Mr. William Watt had left things in a very bad state as "far as the State is concerned. There is an accumulation of unaccomplished legislation, which calls from the heart of all of us sympathy for the man who is to succeed him. Mr* Watt is talking of standing fop» Balaclava. The name Balaclava, is associated with some, of the. most heroic deeds and sacrifice in, history. Mr. Watt, however, is> not even giving us the spice of Waterloo.. He is making one of the most meek...

Mr. Watt met Ihis Cabinet in the after noon, and informed his colleagues that he had made up his mind to resign, and throw in his lot with the Federal Liberal party.
