ALEXINDRA. MR. WHITELAW'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 2 February 1871
ALEX INDRd. (From a Correspondent.) MR. WHITELAW'S MEETING. Mr Whitelaw opened the ball at the Eldorado Hotel on 'aturday evening. The meeting was called for 8 o'clock, but the public, viewing the candidature of this gentleman as a hoax, failed to put in an appearance. The bellman was sent out, and about half past 9 some few parties were to be seen in the vie nity of the Hotel. After repeated attempts to get a chairman, Mr Emerson was induced to accept the office, and introduced the oandiaale. Mr Whitelaw's speech was a repetition of his address, which may be seen in his own paper, the 'iimes. He was a thorou h.going protectionist-he would tax everything. Tie attempt of the M'Cull3ch Mini-try at protec'ion was only an abortion. Sir James M'Culloc% first started as a free trad'r; he turned tail on his friends, and became a protectionist, and, when he considered he was safe, he became a convert again to free trade. He (Mr Whitelaw) would go in the whole "hog." The candidate then addre...

It han severely frighteued numrrous ipdi"iduala, and almost performed the mirael~ of changing the Ethio'us skin. The police hl,- e leen after it, but have not succeeded in catc?ing it Vet. A blackfellow, who had evidently' been very much agitated about something of the kind, appeared before the Maryborough Police Court on Monday morning, ard comp!aiued of the conduct of the ghost, but his Worship (Mr Joyce) said he could do nothing for him, and advised him to catch it. -Maryborough Advertiser.

(To the Editor of the Free Press.) [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 February 1871
(To the Editor of the Free Press.) SrI,--A number of my fellow townsmen, or what I conclude are such, have, under various signatures, as for instance Quiz, Observer, Elector, Luke Speerabout, &c , been filling the columns of your valuable journal with their, in most instances, senseless productions, may I now claim a small space for the exposure of an instance of real hardship. A. contractor to the Seyt mour Road Board, mn order to finish his contract, cuts about 11 trees on the borders of the racecourse, and is, by the trustees, summoned to the Police Cuurt, fined is, and mulcted in damages and costs to the amount of £10 odd, and the money not being at once paid, a writ was issued against him, and he was placed in durance vile for some short period. "Served him right," you say, it may be so, but what id sauce for the goose ought to be sauce for the gander, and I should like to know why the scores of others who have cut sufficient timber on the course to erect many miles of ...
CRICKET MATCH—ROMSEY V KILMORE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 February 1871
CRICKET JAlTCH-ROUMSEY V KIL2OR1. The albove match was played on the Kilmore Cricket Ground on Thursday last, and resulted in an easy victory for the Kilmore team. The day was xceessrvely hot-too hot, in fact, for the thorough enjoyment of the game, The Romsey team were unfortunate in only hbaing seven players in the first innings, but the difculty was afterwards got over by means of substitutes. The visitors were entertained at luncheon in the pevillion when the first innings of each side bad been completed. Of the play we can say but little. What with the g:ound being in bad order, and want of practice, the fielding on both sides was very poor. Messrs A'lord and Pitman shbowed acme excellent batting for Kilmore, and the latter gentleman made a splendid catch at point. The bowling of Messrs Pitman, Allford, and H. Sugden (for Kilmore), and Scott (for Romsey), was very fair. A goodly number of spectators (among whom were a sprinkling of the fair sex) visited the ground during the da...

M'Manus, Sorraghan, Arkell, Turner, and M'Kay. MINUTES: The minutes of the previous ordinary meeting, as well as those of several adjourned ones, were read.

As. the motion stood it das illegal, and he, as Chairman, would not sign the minutes. until that motion was expungea. When he read the report of the. meeting at which that resolution was pa.sed, he was, surprised that Mr Arkell, as chairman at such meet ing, allowed so unusual a course to be adopted and such an illegal motion to be put. If they wanted, the resolution previously arrived at 'poa the subject rescinded, they should have adopted the proper course by giving notice of motion. He repeated his, determination of not signing the minutes while s...
