THE LOCAL LAND BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 4 October 1878

THE LOCAL LAND BOARD.   The Local Land Board consisting of Mr G. R. Watson, Acting District   Surveyor, and Mr H. Taverner, J. P., sat at the Court House, Kering last Fri- day. There were 68 applications set   down for hearing, which occupied the       Board from a quarter to eleven to seven   in the evening. If the Board could commence business, say at nine, in- stead of near eleven, it would be a great convenience to selectors and others who come a long distance. If there was only one applicant for one block of land, the task of recommen- dation would be easy, but where three or four applicants want the same block, and witnesses will persist in giving irrelevant answers, the Board have some difficulty in arriving at a decision. In one instance on Friday, where two applicants were in for one block, one of the applicants did not care what was done with the block so long as his   o...

I DURHAM OX. [FROM OUR OWIS CORR1S PONDEXTS] Octobdr Sth. When doctors differ who shall decide I The wide disparity of opinion as to the yield of the coming harvest, is perplex ing to one who is not a judge in such matters. In the opinion of some, the early crops will yield well, others say lio, the wheat is blighted. &c. Probably the truth lies between the two state ments, some crops are looking well, and others indifferent, of course this only fe fers to the early crops-late sown fields are past redemptioi. The reaper and binder is likely to be used extenisively in this district this sea son. The Messrs Southern have pur chased one,and will commence harvesting a field of oats in a day or two. The new bank premises are camplete and open for business, and the addition to Kemp's hostelry is being proceeded with.

CANARY ISLAND. Oct. 8, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 11 October 1878

CANARY ISLANJ. (PRoK A CORBESPOasDENr). Oct. 8, 1878. The same tale from all quarters, no news, ar I should not have kept silent so long. Forgive me this time, Mr Editor, and I will try and find some thing for the future, but really I hope something will happen to disturb the awful monotony. I hear the selectors of the Island are going to dam the river, as there is every appearance of a very dry summer. Last yearjt was dammnied; and selectors further down stream talked of cutting the damnaway. It is to be hoped they will' take the hint, and provide for themselves this year. What we want is some protection for dams over the river, as anyone with any degree of common sense' will see it is a great shame that after a body of men' joining together, to have their work all undone by men who are too lazy to make one for themselves. The Wesleyan Chapel I spoke about some time ago bids ' fair to be success ful, the subscriptions amounting to up wards of £30o. At a meetinst called Mr Vear kind...

MACORNA. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 11 October 1878

MACORN.. Last Wednesday evenirng the first" annual tea meeting in connection with the Church of England and Presby terian United Cllurch was held iii the church at Macorna. Rain, unfortu nately for the pleasure seekers, but fortunately for the district, began to fall about two o'clock, and continued almost incessantly up' to nine, thus marring what otherwise would have been a most enjoyable outing. It was understood that. a cricket match would be played between the MIincha and Kerang Clubs, but the' rain uphappily compelled them to draw the stumps prematurely. It would. however, have been no criterion of the ability of the Kerang Club, as only four members were able to be present. viz., Messrs J. W. Taverner (captain), Benton, Jones, and Colman. Six more, however, were picked up on the ground to complete the team, but they contributed only ducks' eggs. The Kerang captain having won the toss, sent in his men, when Benton scored 1:; J. W.

AND SwAN HILL GAZET'rE. S PUDLISliED WEEKLY. KERANG, OCTOBER II, I873. LOCK THE LODDON. In our last issue we -published a let ter in which Mr Avard drew attention to the necessity of some steps being taken to conserve the water at present flowing down the River Loddon past our doors. We gladly give.the matter nmore publicity in the hope that some thing may be done towards the neces I sary undertaking. As far as- we can learn the case stands thus-to the north east, west and south of Kerang are im mense plains, which . being in the hands of the squatters in the early days, and in order more fuhilly to utilize their grazing capabilities found it neces sary to water them ; but as this could only be done by water from the Lod don,a number of squatters met and cub scribed largely towards the object in view, engaged a professional engineer and had several dams constructed across the Loddon at points which threw back the flood waters for miles on both the east and west of the river.
