GLENGARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 July 1914
GLENGARRY. We are drperiencing dry wea ther, which is very suitable for this district, providing we get good spring rains, which have never never been known to fail us. All classes of stock are looking well, especially dairy cattle, for this time of the year. There will be the same area under cultivation this year, as what was cultivated last .year. The early sown crolls are being fed off, which does a certain amount of good in the dry weather, by making the crop stool. The site of the Glengarry rec reation reserve, containing 8 acresi has ben surveyed, and the com mittee are calling tenders for clearing and grubbing it. The secretary of the sports club will have a credit balancl of over £15 to h'and over to the funds of the re'-reation reserve. Much credit is due to our energetic sec retary, Mlr. T. H. Keon, for the able manner in which he worked to make the last meeting such a great success. The club is indeed tortunate in securing such a good secretary.
Encouragement & Warning. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 July 1914
TELEPHONE, 10. FRIDAY, JULY 3, 1914. Encouragement & Warning. Apparently the rank and file of the Labor Party are a great deal more demonstrative and restless than the Liberals. At least such seems to be the experience in Tra ralgon. During the past few months several Labor orators have addressed public meetings'in Tra ralgon. Each has attacked the Liberal government and Party to a more or less extent, -and even singled out individual Liberals for special attention. The Labor speakers are generally allowed to say just what they like, and rarely is a protest made by the Liberals present at such meetings. People of lhoth political leanings will ad mit that ~this is a fact. It was just the same at Mr. Bennett's meeting on Tuesday night. In'deed, he had not uttered many words on Fede ral politics, before an interrup tion came from the opposition camp, and thence forward they came like a mob of sheep, hopping through a Ibreach in a ience. This sort of experience did not dis conce...

* FEDERAL ISSUES. A PRACTICAL PROGRAMME. There are veterans who would be content if the Liberat party pre served the individual from the fetters which Labor is forginmg for him, and administered the at fairs of. the Commonwealth with discretion. But the men who are in the foremost of the battle to day, and those wvho wihl step into their places to-morrow, reahlse that more than this is riecessary, and are glad that the Prime Minis ter is to submit',a definite and practical programme. To say no to the freaklsh proposals ot :re voluti6nary. Socialists is necessary, but not enough. Every: thoughttul Liberal has long realised' that our present sys tem of vo.ting is out of date. Elec toral campaigns should be educa tional. The ordminary citizen will listen to political talk only when battle is mn the 1ar,, and at that time he should have the opportunity to listen to every shade of opminion; in..other words it should not -be 'necegsry to sty to any would-be candidate: "'Be silent; on no a...

WANDERING CATTLE. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 July 1914
WANDERING CATTLE. * -0---o (To the Editor). Slr,-I behlieve there is a shire by-law dealing with cattle wan dering mn the streets of Traralgon. I would like to know why it is not enforced. There are several cows in the town capable of opemning any gate almost, Rnf it they get mn there is an end to everything in the garden.. I have noticed se veral hedges in the town eaten back- as far as the cattle could reach, completely destroying their appearance. I, as well as iothers min the town, intend plantmg hedges this season, and we do not want them destroyed. Perhaps the coun cn could mnake a boundary outside the town where cattle could feed, aria inside which they would be prohibited.' It any of the council lors were to tumble over some of these strays on the. footpath at mnight, or step into some of the filth left by them, they might sud denly wake up, and take immediate action. Hoping some abler pen than mine wih take this mpatter up.-I am, yours truly, R. G. FORD.
