The Council and its Liabilities. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
The Council and its Liabilities. A question of considerable interest to the ratepayers was brought betore the Council on Wednesday when a claim was received from James Kelly for 8Os damages sustained to a vehicle owing to a culvert giving way whilst driving over it on the previous Sunday. Councillor Smith thought that a great many accidents were likely to occur throughout the shire now that the engineer had been dispensed with, and bridges and culverts were, in consequence, not properly examined or systematically supervised. He. therefore, considered the council would have to adopt some strict rules in the matter of these elaims, and suggested that before settling the claim under notice the culvert should be examined and a definitoe decision come to as to the attitude the council should assume in respect to such claims in the future. The suggestion was accepted and there the matter was allowed to remain for the present.

St. Paul's Sunday School. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
St. Paul's Sunday School. The Masonic Hall has seldom contained a more merry and happy-looking audience than that which assembled therein on Wednesday evening, when a sort 'of Speech Day took place in connection wiith St. Paul's Sunday School. What with a perfect crowd of smiling youngsters, and a large attendance of parents ndd friends, the room was filled to overflowing. and Mr. A. C. Lewis, the newly.appointed secretary of the school, was kept darting about, hither and thither, filling up every vacant spot with a chair, and thus absorbing all available space. The Rev. E. D. Fethers looked both pleased with the company and proud of his school, and conducted the proceedings as became a genial chairman. These consisted of the performance of amiscel laneons programme by the scholars and others, and the distribution of prizes to the successful competitors during the past twelve months. The opening item was a pianoforte duet by the Misses Sutherland, after which came songs by Master A....
Work for local Workmen. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Work for local. Workmen. The Railway Department recently resolvedito have some earthworks done in connection with the bridge which spans the Little Moo River at a point on the railway about midway between Bloomfield and Darnum, and Inspector Gullick, of \Varragul, was instructed to invite applicants for tile wvork from among the local unemployed. He accordingly arranged for them to attend at his oflice o, Tuesday night, when to his amaze ment no fewer than 70 put ini an appearance-nearly 100 per cent. more than he required. It was obvious that to select 40 from among this munber would require careful discrimination Mr. Gullick, therefore went through all the names systematically and finally picked out a couple of score and set them to work" on the following morning. Unfortunately, however, it was only" "i week's job" and is therefore but very temporary as sistance.

"That the matter of limiting auditors' charges, and the doing away with local auditors, should be again pressed upon the department." Conn. cillors very forcibly protested against a continuance of the present exactions in view of the depleted condition of the shire's finances and the President was directed to use all his influence at the meeting to have the necessary steps taken for having the objects of the motion carried into prac...

PULPIT AND POLITICS. POLITICAL CORRUPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
PULPIT AND POLITICS, POLITICAL CORRUPTION. -0-- Preaching at St. John's Church, 2Melbourne, on Sunday evening, Rev. Dr. Torrance, spoke as follows on political corruption : Can any man or woman doubt that There is such a thing as political cor ruption ? The whole history of politics, from first to last, not only.in this country but in the mothler country and in all countries of the world where repiesenta'tivo Government exists, has been nothing but a history of political corruption. One does not expect anything better under a despotic or ,autocratic rule, where a sovereign will may be swayed by favoritism or influencea by caprice, by pride, or by ambition. But among a free and enlightened people political corruption is simply intolerable, a constant reproach and disgrace to civihsation, an insult to intelligence, a menace to happiness, a bar to the pro gress of the community. What is log-rolling in what claims to be a High Court of Parliament but the result of collusion among " hono...

:BLOOMFI.ELu. (yutoar ous OWN CORRESP'ONDENT.) :.A;;? concert was held at Bloomfield on Tuesday evening last, in connection with the English church, and from a concert point of view was an immense success.

OUR LETTER BOX... [We wish it to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarily uphold 'the views expressedbycorrespondents under this heading.] FOR THE POLICE. TO THE EDITOR Si'-I think we havo police ?nough in Warragul to have law and order main tained. The reverse however appears to be the case, as the conduct of a crowd of footballers and larrikius on the railway platform on Wednesday' night was simply disgraceful. The entrance to the .platform was blocked up by a lot of these unmannerly fellows to such an extent that it was impossible for respectable females to get past them, and.their conduct, after the departure of the trains, in Queen street, between eight and half-past nine o'clock, was outrageous. Their filthy language and disgraceful conduct on the footpaths certainly ought not to have been overlooked by the police in the manner it was, as the footpath in Queen-street was blockeduip by them, so that no respectable person could get along. I hope the police will take t...

The "Butcher's Bill" in England. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
The "Butcher's Bill" In England. -4-C-- The annual "butcher's bill" in con nection with football in the old country has been presented I.y the " Westminster Gazette," There was an attempt made here last year to make local capital out of a similar "bill," but the game played in England and Scotland is so widely different from the Victorian game that no comparison will lie-or, in another sense, every comparison must lie! Last season in Victoria was singularly free from serious mishaps. Minor oues must be expected in football. Those who would judge this sport have to consider whether they are willmg to pay anything for the robustness and the discipline of temper which it pronmotes or hope to get theseattributesforniothing. In Great Britain last season's play appears t., have 'been exceptionally " tender." Yet we are told that there were twenty leaths. That is, one would. presume, deaths caused by accidents in the. field. When the list is examined, however, we find an item like this: Se...
The Duty on Mummies. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
The Duty on Mummies. A certain Brugseh Bey, while encaged in some explorations under a distinguished "Egyptologist" had discovered' a mummy-believed to be the mortal re mains of one of the Pharaohs. The story proceeds thus: On reaching Cairo, there was fresh trouble with the "octroi" officials. " What have you got there ?" Brugseh Bey was asked. "A mummy," was the reply. "Ah, you can't gat that through with out paying." "But," urged Pha~msh'a gusrdian, " mummies surely don't pay ' octroi' duty "" "Don't they ?" re plied the oii?iatl; "we willsoe what the re gister says." Here the entire staff consulted the register, but., strangely enough, the article in question had been overlooked by the administration. " Well," said the officer, "we will enter that as dried fish; duty, three piastres !" Ana so poor Pharaoh was compelled to make his solemn entry in Cairo under the degrading category of dried fish, Live Khedives have remarkably good times in Egypt to tis days. But the official mind...
STAGE NAMES. MAY BE TRUE TO NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
STAGE NAMES. MAY BE TRUE TO NATURE. Mr Hare, under whose management "the Notorious Mrs Ebbsmith" has been produced in London, in the couree of an interview with a "Westminster Gazette"representative, laughs at the notion of any legal difficulties standingin the way of his conetinuned use of the name of Mrs Ebbsmith. If Nature chooses to pirate inoffensive playwrights' ideas in this fashion (he :eems to think), that is her look-out, not the playwrights'. " And, of course," his representativ observed, "this is not "he first time that ths thing has happened. I remember In the case of ' Jim, the Penman,' a similar thing occurred. A man nemed RIalston came to complain-though, I must say, he only did it in a mock-serious spirit--that he was being nightly held up to execra tion, althoueh he lived a blameless lifle, by this play. And undoubtedly hohad a grievance, in so far as his name and that of the character in the drama were the same. But we did not see our way to meet his wishes in the...

A Thrifty Man, "The thriftiest citizen I have yet seen,' remarked the drummer to the hotel clerk, "I met last week." " Who was he. A Yankee " asked the clerk. " Not exactly, but a half Yankee. He lived down in one of those towns in that part of Ohio called the Western Re. serve, and which was settled by New Eng. landers."

You see, Iwaelooking around the town for a man named James Wiggler, who owed us a bill. and I couldn't find his house. I was directed to several places and it was always the wrong man's hoses.

The Vineyard. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
The Vineyard. The cultivation of the vine in rows or lines, is of all modes the most suitable, as i permits the application of all the means and iustruments which can be moved by the hand of ilan or by the power of ammatols. Digging, hoeing, weed ing by hndl. and ploughing by means of oxen or horses, are all potsible without cu?uing any injury to the root or branches of th- vine. And as the cultivation of the roil by means of animals can be done cheaper and more rapidly, all vionyards in eituations which admit of ouch work, ehould be planted in line. There are, hooecrcr, in most European contrios, thousands of aocre of steep elopes admirably adapted for vines, whero man only can crform the work.
