Established 1895. Published Friday. : One Penny. 'Phoxe 34. Friday Morning, October 25, 1914 At a meeting of Cobram citizens the question of celebrating the completion. of the electric light scheme was con/ sidered, and it was felt that despite the unsatisfactory outlook of the season such a substantial mark of the town's progress should not be allowed to pass wichoat recognition. In view of the times, however, no attempt is to be made to formally celebrate the opening on an elaborate scale, but merely to have a short list of toasts, etc., together with light refreshments. The Madame Lena Conly Co gave a first-class concert on Tuesday evening, every item being greatly enjoyed by the small bat appreciative audience. Mad ame Oonly was in fine voice, and she was enthusiastically recalled at the close of each item, a double encore being numbered amongst her successes.

Australia'and the Empire. FIXING OF PRICES. Tho Cook Ministry issaed a procla^' mation prohibiting the export of grain' Lritnfn, to any country save Great Brit# nnless the written consent of the Minister of Onstoms was first ob tained. The Fisher Ministry issued a further proclamation, forbidding the export of grain, even to Great Britain without the consent of the Minister. In New South Wales Labor fixed the price of wheat! at 4s 2d, in Victoria a Liberal Government has fixed it at 4s 9d, Thns each admits fnlly and frankly that the well being of the Commonwealth and of the Empire must be preserved, even though the liberty of the citizen to " do as he pleases with his own," is seriously cur tailed.

Temperance Notes. (Contributed.) Daring the recent hot spell the London General Omuibns Company provided liberal supplies of barley water at the garages for thirsty drivers and conductors of motor omnibuses. Sir Edward Grey, the British Secretary for Foreign Affairs, is said to be a teetotaler. He is never seen in the smoke room in the House of Commons. He works seventeen and eighteen hours a day. He is recognised as a man of wonderful judgment and a ''safe" foreign sec retary. It is stated that the failure of the temperance cause in the army during recent years has been mainly due to the continued over indulgence of the ci&cers. The Imperial Russian Council has passed the third reading of the Bill for combating drunkenuess and sent the amended measure bsck to tho Duma for further considera tion. In times of great) danger the weak est spots are soon discovered. In England the Parliament has passed special legislation for the protection of territorials and military trainees a...

It is hoped, therefore, that there will be a large attendance at the Shire Hall cn Friday, 9:h.
