OBITUARY. MR WILLIAM KING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 March 1914

OBITUARY.   MR WILLIAM KING. A painful surprise was created in the town on Sunday afternoon last when it became known that Mr Wil- liam King, of Bowmont, Tatyoon, had expired. It was known that the de- ceased gentleman had not for some time past been in a satisfactory state of health. Indeed, since the death of his wife on the 8th January of last year, his health declined and he was forced to take a trip to New South Wales in the hope that change of air and scene would restore him to his wonted robust vigor. He appeared to benefit by the change, but soon after it was apparent that the result was not of a permanent character. He was indisposed in the early part of last week, and at his request the Pre- sident of the Shire of Ararat apologis- ed for his inability to attend the council meeting, and leave of absence was requested for a couple of months. This was promptly granted, but not even his nearest friends anticipated that his condition was so grave and his end so nea...

ENTHUSIASM NOT EXPECTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914

'ENTHUSIASM NOT EXPECTED. The proposal of the. Government was that the Ulster counties should be al lowed to take a poll as to whether or not they should be excluded from the operation of the Home Rule Bill-for a period of six years. Before this sex ennium expired, .the electors of the United Kingdom would have had an opportupity to say whether the exclu sion of Ulster- was to continue. Mr Asquith" stated that he did not expect this proposal to be accepted with en thusiasm in-any quarter.

CABLEGRAMS. EEBUTEEB'S PECIALS. HOME RULE. CONCESSIONS ANNOUNCED. A CROWDED HOUSE. EXCLUSION SUBJECT TO POLL. LONDON, Monday. Long before the hour for meeting this afternoon, the House of Commons was crowded to hear the concessions which the Government intended to offer to Ulster. Many members, who were un able to find room on the floor of the Chamber, were seated in the galleries. Throughout question time a state of great tension was perceptible in the House. The excitement of members found some vent when the Prime Min ister, Mr Bonar Law and Sir Edward Carson came in. Each leader received an ovation from his Parliamentary sup porters. With the questions disposed of, Mr Asquith rose to the accompaniment of great cheering. He began by explain ing that offering suggestions to over comc the dillicultics that tile Irish situation presented did not mean run ning away from the original Home Rule Bill. They had been devised to give the bill a start with the greatest mea sure of success. T...

OPEN CONFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914

OPEN CONFESSION. The Melbourne_papers are making; lerry over Mr Watt's naive confes sions of misdoings in the. past, .whee he was one of the "bad boys," who made life a burden to the then care taker of the Royal Park. The common sense magistrates of that day, it seems, used to advise the Park authorities not to prosecute the Willie Watt of the day, but to instruct the Park ranger to lay on the whip. The Premier.. admits he got his share, and evidently bears 'no animosity towards his old time enemy. It is singular how the lapse of time' changes opinions. Mr Watt took his whacks in those days, and deserved more than he got, and now in a manly way eces only something to be amused at. Incidentally it may be surmised that he does not feel amused with a later horse whipping episode where he was the victim, and where he was in no way to blame. Mr Watt .is big enough to own that he deserved what he got as a boy, but one would like to know what would happen..to a park,. caretaker who gave tr...

TELEPHONE TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914

TELEPIIONE TROUBLES. As most people know, Mr Hughes, 1.P., is very deaf, though his political opponents have been wont to consider and say that when "Billy" wanted to hear he was as well abloeto do so as the keenest eared man in the House. In order to take part in the big waterside workers' case, Mr Hughes has, however, had fixed up an elaborate telephone in stallation, with wires from the bench and the witness box, the receiver being attached to MAr Hughes' person. On the first day the case was before the court the apparatus failed; and Mr hughes ha, to depend on an assistant. who wrote down what wts said, \while Mr hughes instructed himself from the memoranda. Since then matters have been more satisfactory, though the court attendatnr, who, by the way, is a Labor mian, refers to Justice lriggins, Messrs Hughes, Arthur and Brennan as:: hio ",bl.ers," every morning.solemnly tests the telephones by making remarks about the weather to Mr Hughes, who nods his head rapidly., like a .vhi...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. DROUGHT POSSIBILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914

SOUR MIntLBOUNE LETTER,. DROUGHT POSSIBILITIES. Naturally 'one does not desire to figure as a propheMf.evil or to. figure in the role of Cassanrdia, but the fact remains that it behoves the people of Victona to think ve-y ,:arefully as to the possibilities of a drought. Once, years ago, it is stated, an acting metcorologist in one of the neighboring colonies prophesied a drought. .The managers of the financial -institutions gave heed to his warnings; but instead of assisting their customers to prepare for the evil day, simply shut down on overdraft customers, with the result that when the drought came along ac cording to schedule, the pastoralists in the particular colony were pretty well ruinedi. This year the lightness of rains for months back is telling its talc. Not only are the districts north of thIe ranges short of water, but in the ordinarily well watered southern dis tricts there is an absolute shortage, which looks ominously like the begin ning of drought conditions. Sprin...

The mine manager antici pates that ultimate operations ;rlil ?r atoz per fathom cheaper than in the neighboring mines. Openings will now he made in the lead at various points from No. 1 rise to facilitate draiaig. Although there has been a fair inc:rass of water of late, the pumps are keeping it. down comfortably.

NEW LANGI LOGAN. SATISFACTORY POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914

NEW LANGI LOGAN. SATISFACTORY POSITION. The mine manager of the New La ii Logan Gold M?ines has reported as f,! lows, under date 6th March :-" I have taken bucket samples out of each ast. and they go from A dwt to 1 dwt to tie bucket. From what we have open,..l up it will be splendid ground to extract when the water is out of it; there Is o swelling reef, and from all appearances I it will be cheap ground to work. It will be fully , oz to the fathom cheap -r to work than neighboring n:mr.es, for the simple reason there will be no repairing, and cheap on timber, and no swelling country to contend with. Of course that is taking it for granted that all the lead opens up the same as at present, and I think it will. The north drive from the shoot is in G? feet in reef ; the wash is 6 inches over back this morning, and the water is coming away pretty strong. As soon as we get into the wash here,. and -get plenty of water, we will stop it tempoi. arily to drain, and open out both east and ...

Owing to the fact that the inter-State teams of New South Wales and Vie. toria were passing through the town on their way to Adelaide, opportunity was taken by the Ararat Club of got. ting them to break their journey and arrange a match with local players. The xnowledge that Horace Rice, who only on 'Saturday showed his superior. Itv uv winning the Autumn Champion. ship in Melbourne, was one of the visiting team, contributed to the in. terest materially. The attendance was excellent and representative of all social and sporting interests of the dis. trict.
