FEDERAL ISSUES. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. Through the Governor's Spoeech, for which they are responsible, Ministers hive hurled a direct challengo at the Opposition. As to the policy which they have pursued sinoo they took Oiie0', thu friends of Mr. Cook and his colleague may (lilf'r, noas friends do, wlhatever o(urse those in authority adopt. But all Liberals, no matter what their own prepoaussessions or interests, will admit that Ministers deserve the credib given to thooose who, having put their hand to the plough, refuse to look back., As soon as LAbor made it oloear that it wonuld not allow Pirliamen , elected in 1913, to do any useful work, the Government devoted its energies to the one great end, the scouring of a double dissolution at the earliest possible moment, Under the hard and fast Party system which it thrust on a reluctant Oommonwealth, Labor saunot allow the Ministry to (to any good which may be preovouented or dolayid, Every service which Liberals do Australia strengt...

THE MURRAY WATERS AGREEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 22 April 1914
THE MURRAY WATERS AGREE MENT, Ttsn agroement with regard to the conservation of the waters of bte River Murray arrived at by the Premiere' Conference, in consultation with some of the Federal Ministers, deserves more than passing notice, The subject is one that has caused much trouble for many years past, It was early aoon that the arid districts of the north of Victoria and the south of Now South Wales could only be made really pros. perous by the use of artifioially applied water, This was available in large quantities in the River Murray and its tributarioe. At the same time these streams sufeored from the defect of most Australian rivers-a defect incidental to the country, This is that while they are occasionally full to overflowing they are at other times almost) mpty, or even a mere chain of wabtr holes, The obvious remedy is to construct storage catchments in order to save the excess available during certain seasons of the year, Victoria was the firob to move in this directio...
