CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 August 1881

CORRESPONDENCE.. TO THE EDITOR. Smr,-In a recent issue of your paper a letter from Mr. J. C. Ilann was inserted with a view to shliow (so the writer stated) that he was not obstructing tramway ex. tendon towards Allambee, but that he showed that. obstructions were being made is beyond a doubt, and your footnote is the proof.. There is, therefore, little to com ment upon in the letter save a couple of sentences in which he states that a clause embodying a lease for 21 years pf the timber was either skipped or inserted after wards," and that he does "like straight forwrardness." thus reflecting on. the person who saw himn in respect to the matter. Being myself that person I desire to deny that aught was skipped or subsequently in serted; there was not, nor is there now, in the papers referred to a 21 years lease of timber, so that Mr. 1ann evidently does not quite understand yet the nature of the document, which was a 21 years lease of La strip of land on& chain wide, and a li...

BULN BULN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. THIRD ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 August 1881

BULN BULN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. * THIR.D ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH. It is with considerable satisfaction that we chronicle for the third time the results of the above society's an nual ploughing matches; which took place on Tuesday last. The scene of operations was in a paddock belonging to Mr. John Cornall, who, to his credit be it said, kindly placed at the disposal of the Committee such apiece of- ground as was most suitable in all respects for the purpose. The adver tised time for startingwas nine o'clock, but owing to unforseen impediments it was nearly ten o'clock before the teams were put in motion. The wea ther, strange to say, was similar to what it was on the two former occa sions, heavy showers throughout the day making the work hard for the ploughmen, and uncomfortable for the visitors. Notwithstanding, however, the attendance was considerable, fully 800 persons being on the ground to wards the close of the match We were pleased to see, amongst other visitors, the memberfor...
