TYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 19 June 1914

TYERS. A social dance was held on Thurs. day evening, in aid of the funds of the hall, and was the most successful yet held. Mr W. Christensen, the secre tary of the quadrille, resigned, so the onus of carrying on was thrown on Mr A. F. Paulet, the president. The committee also io-ked hard to make the dance a success, and the reaul: is a substantial increase to the funds already raised by the quadrille club. The young men have worked loyally for the mechanics', and, with the co operatioh of the ladies, have estab lished the Tyers dances on a sound and harmonious foo'ing. It is a pity that opposition should be started against them, as it will probably upset the good feeling now existing. There were several visitors and the local people were well represented and a most enjoyable evening was spent. The ladies, as usual, provided excel lent refreshments, and the music supplird by Miss Chaundy, in the ab senoe of Dviss Heywood, was all that could te desired. The duties of M.C. were carri...

Municipal History of Traralgon. No. 6. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

Municipal History of Traralgon. " No. 6. (By W. WEST). Councillor Dugald Cimpb'ell, who was then elected to the pre sidential chair, was another of ithe pioneers of municipal life with whose name the early history of Traralgon is closely identified. The' first councillor to directly repre sent the Tr,aralon district, he con tinued a municipal representative of thait district for the remainder of his life. During those years, stirring and eventful as they were, when the foundation of our munim cipal government was being laid, he influenced largely the current of public opinion, and stamped the impress of his personality upon the policy of the council. Much of the time of a busy life he devoted'to the public business he took in hand, in attending to the many requirements of the munici pality, and in assisting in various watys in promoting the public interest. Nor were his ene r gics' confined to purely municipal 'matters, as the Traralgon Agri cultural Society was formed al most soley...

THE COMMONWEALTH CAMPAIGN. ELECTORAL RED HERRINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

THE, COMMONWEALTH CAMPAIGN. -o-- ELECTORAL RED HERRINGS. "It is as lander and a lie" were; the emphatic words used by the Prime Minister on Wednesday, in referring to an electioneering cir cular, headed "Cook's Latest " The circular asserts-that the police. are taking names off the rolls, thati in places seventy-five per cent. of the Labor voters have been dis franchised, and so on. In a much more guarded fashion, the "Worker," Labor's Sydney or gan, is working on the lines of-the circular. Even the "Worker," though it does not make laugh-: able mistatements, gives -the fol lowing, in one of its leading notes: "It is becoming more evident every day that the Cook crowd are. determined to thimble rig the elecotral machinery as much as possible." This is anent the ab sent vote. As a matter bf fact the, new regulations relating to that vote is absolutely beyond chal-, lenge. It merely provides that those who are within a mile ofi their ordinary polling ,place on election day shall not v...

FOOTBALL UMPIRES DIFFER. THE SALE-MAFFRA MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

FOOTBALL UMPIRES DIFFER. THE SALE-MIAFFRA MATCH. Regarding the dispute over the match between Sale and Maffra, on the ]atter's ground last Thurs day, the ".Spectator" says.: " When the bell rang, the Maf fra players left the fioeld confi dent that they had won by a couple of points, and this was borne out by Mr. T. Turner, the local goal umpire, but when the Sale umpire, MIr. W. Weir, arrived on the scene with his tally showingi the match a draw, confusion was confounded. Some of the well known Sale supporters, who kept the scores throughout, were so satisfied that Maffra had won with two points to spare, that they paid over bets made - with Maffra -sup porters. All that night in Maffra and Sale scoring cards were in evidence, and many,a wordy rwar-( fare was waged as to which um pire was right." The Sale "Times" states that as the players came off the field no one seemed to know which side had won. (and that was just the position). In fact no one knowst yet who won, or whether eith...

COMMONWEALTH BANK AND COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

COMMONWEALTH BANK AN&DI COUNCILS. Applications are being received by the Commonwealth Bank fromi municipalities for loans by way of. debentures for permanent works.. The bank advances money to the counci's after satisfying itself that the ahnount is to be spent in comrn-, pliance with all the terms of the Local Government Act. In the past counci's have made arrange mnents for the repayment of such loans as by law required for es taplishing sinking funds, invested at 3 per cent. in Government stock: A great deal of waste, however, was involved in the system. Coun cils having loans at 5 per cent. for a long period were unable to redeem their debentures until the the full period of loan had clapr -sed, although they had large sums of redemption money tied up. in Government stock, yielding only: three per cent: interest. In the year 1903, Parliament amended' the Act, giving councils power to borrow money for permanenti works, and instead of providing a 3 per cent. smking fund, t...

RURAL WORKERS' LOG. "The Argus." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

RURAL WORKERS' LOG. -o "The Argus." The rural workers' log is once more "on the board." . There. is no industry on-this spacious eaith' that the Labor party is not 1 il- ling to manage. The Australian Workers' Union has just annun ced its intention of taking out of the hands of their owners the management of all the farms, hop gardens, vineyards, market gar densin Victoria, New South Wa les, Queensland, South Austra lia, Western Australia and Tas mania. That is practically what the enforcement of the ruralwor kers' log amounts to; and that log is to come into operation on the 1st of October. The Federal elec tions take place somewhat less than a month before that:date, andi it will be interesting to note how country constituencies express their opinion of the Labor party. The log not only proposes totell farmers how much to pay in wages' but it arranges the routine work of the farm, and disburses its re venue; in many cases more than its revenue. It makes no provision for the wages ...

Political. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

Political. Mr. Wise has started ted the election campaign, but how can he possibly hope to wrest the seat from Mr. Bennett, passes comprehension. As, on the last occasion, it will be a strictly a "party fight, and when numbers go up, the voting will be about the same. Mr. Wise got the Labor vote'last time, and he will get it again; except, perhaps, a number of those who are getting disgus ted with the party because of the lengths it is going. Nothing has . happened since May 1913 to make Liberals in the constituency less determined to I761d their -nd up. Seppose Mr. Wise had been re turned at the last election instead of Mr. Bennett, what would have happened ? What's the use of sending an independent into par liament, who would be loyal to neither side, under the present con ditions. It wouJd be about as fool-i ish as hitching a team at both ends of a waggon and expecting it to get to the railway station 1 Mr. Wise is, no doubt, very able both on and off the platform, but until he d...

ANNIVERSARY. TRARALGON METHODIST CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

ANNIVERSARY. o-0 TRARALGON METHODIST CHURCH. The anniversary services of the Traralgon Methodist Church were1 held on Sunday. At the openingl of the morning service the Rev.: W. H. Scurr said that he believed/ that it wpis 36 ycars since the church was bui!(t, but services M'eref conducted in the youig township prior to that time. Mr. Scurr preached from the words: ' Awake, awake, put on thy strength, O Zion; put on the beautiful gar ments." (Isaiah, 52nd chap. 1st verse). In the course of his re marks he said that Methodism. had its birth in a gieat religious revival in the past century. The. church had not been a' spiritually vigorous during-the past 10, 20 or 30 years, but it had not been dead. Apparently it had been in the same state as the sleeper who, at a certain point in the night was so oblivious of his surroundings that he was nearly dead. In the words of the text, Christ said to; the church, "Awake I awake I piut on thy strength." If the Method ist church put forth its st...

THE FIREFLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

THE FIREFLIES. ---o-- The advent to Traralgon of the above musical company will be a treat not to be missed, and the local hall should be all too small to .hold intending patrons on Wednesday next. Coming as they do with a si xmonths' season at the Follies theatre, St. Kilda, to their credit, it may be taken for granted that their performances are much above the average. Since leaving St. Kilda at the close of their summer season, they have played a iveek in Ballarat, and five weeks in Tasmania to pheno menal business. The Ballarat " Star" thus eulogises their per formances: "A charming, fresh, breezy, and captivating company. Two hours of delight, and always clever; stage, scenery and dres ses exceedingly beautiful." One interesting feature in the pro gramme will be the much discus sed fashionable craze, The Tango Dance. There are nine artists in the company; three ladies and six gentlemen, all of whom are spe cralists in their particular line.

NEW ROAD WORKS. MORE EXPEDIATION ASKED FOR. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 23 June 1914

NEW ROAD WORKS. MORE EXPEDIATION ASKED FOR. Warragul has the honor of opening the first length of new road under the Country Roads: Board scheme. Traralgon is much' behind its neighbor, as not a sin gle contract has been let yet. It is approximately estimated that the forming of roads authorised in the shire will cost about £O0,000O hence it is high time that some of the new roads were in progress. 'he'~sooner the new roads are; completed, the sooner will rate payers reap the benefit. The de viation and forming of the Callig nee road is the most urgent in the shire,. and it is a great pity that the worst places have not yet been tackled. "The Switchback," on the Traralgon South road is a notoriously vexatious lengthand it is used by all the traffic going to. the hills. Yet, apparently, the time for wiping it out is not yet. Very probably it is hung up until tie question of deviating the road from near the Cordial Factory bridge is settled. This knotty questiofi ought to be settled o...
