THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 3 August 1882

THIE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS, As is sometimes the case, the eleventh hour has changed the aspect of affairs. in connection with the municipal elec tions in this part of the colony, and in place of peaceable walk-overs taking place as was generally anticipated, the ewar note has been sounded in somne quarters, and when the nominations closed, aspirants for municipal honors threw down the gauntlet, and prepared themselves for the battle. So far as the OAI RNSDALE SHInE is concerned, matters turned out as gene rally prognosticated. For the western riding the president, Councillor William Hodgson, has been returned unopposed, an evident sign that he has succeeded in discharging his duties to the satisfaction of his fellow ratepayers. A similar com pliment has been paid Mr. Edward Jen nings, who has been re-elected to the position of local auditor without opposi tion. For the representation of the central riding, however, there will a con test, Mr. James Morrow having inti mated some time ag...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE LABOR MARKET. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 3 August 1882

ORIGINAL COJRESPONDENCE. THE LABOR MARKET. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-I was very much interested in read ing a very excellentarticle, appearing iu your issue of the 1st inst., anent the scarcity of laborers. I have heard and read a great deal from time to time in favor of the eight hours' system. It is no doubt a very good thing in its place, but in my opinion there is a pos sibility of having too much even of a good thing,-which then becomes very much out of place; and however much the eight hours' system may be beneficial to mechanics and artisans, it surely cannot be made available to farm laborers and those engaged in agricul tural pursuits without inflicting a serious in convenience, and probably (at some seasons of the year) loss, on the employer. A very abshort time ago a man, professing to seek em ployment, called upon an intimate acquain tance of mine who was in want of assistance. Several questions were asked and answered, and the wages £1 per week and found, co...

Mr. Chambers, lay reader of the Church of England, in alluding to the advancement of science spoke of it as being the fruit of industry by using bra...

A gross swindle in connection with an art union lottery was exposed at the Richmond court this morning when F. M.

GENERAL NEWS. It is notified by proclamation in the Government Gazette that the Batavian ports are infected with cholera. All vessels arriving from those ports will accordingly te placed in quarantine. Thomas Ellis, a boy 8 years of ago, was swinging on a gate at the Ballarat cattle yards on Monday afternoon, when the pin of the gate came out of the socket at the top, and fell on the child and killed him on the spot. Four of the members of the Police Commission made a tour of inspection of the " backslums" of Melbourne on Monday. They were accompanied and protected by Sergeant Dalton, Senior Constable O'Meara and Constable Coglan. They commenced their visit about 10 o'clock, and continued their inspection until an early hour in the morning. The Herald of Charters Towers, Queensland, says in its issue of the 12th ,July :-" The diamond drill is hung up for want of diamonds. The last lot were from the Cape, and would not stand against the Wellington granite. This difficalty of procurin...

TILE CRISIS IN EGYPT. [aGE CABLEGRAM.] LONDON, July 30. There is every probability that Eng land will be entirely isolatd in the con dust of the Egyptian campaign. This fact gives great satisfaction to all except the extreme opponents of the Govern mont. The T7mes and Daily ArNew.s, in leading articles published this morning, congratulate the :ontry on the fact that England will enter on the contest with out the drawback of any embarrassing alliances. M. d, Lesseps, founder of Suez Canal, has had several interviews with Arabi Pasha. for whom he entertains a friendly feeling. Arabi Pasha has distinctly assured him that under no circumstances will he attempt to inter fere with the Canal, or to interrupt the traffic. Arabhi Pasha is destroying the Cairo railway line. The threats of the British admiral have produced no effect on the Egyptian garrison at Abukir. They profess thetir firm aduhosion to Arahl Pasha, and enttireoly decline to acknow ledge the aovsorignity of the Khodive, It i...

MIDWINTER RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 3 August 1882

MIDWINTER RACE MEETING. The race meeting initiated by a com mittee of gentlemen will take place on the Bairnsdale course to-day, and with fine weather the affair can scarce fail to be thoroughly successful. That Mr. Hill, the handicapper, has framed his imposts to the satisfaction of the owners generally is incontrovertably proved by the number of acceptors, only three drop ping out of the Hurdle Race, and one a horse I said at the outset would not come here. Baba, I imagined, had only been nominated in Ned Kelly's interest, and was prepared for his absence from the list of acceptors, and that Black Doctor and Dundee would not pay up for both events was only to be expected.

The Advertiser. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND SATURDAY MORNING. Bairnsdale, Thursday, August 3. 1882. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 3 August 1882

The Advertiser. PUBLISHED nEVERY TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND SATURDAY MORNING, Bairnsdale, Thursday, August 3, 1882. AcCORDINGn to the provisions of the Licensing Act, a poll of the ratepayers must be taken every third year, as to whether the licenses in any district shall be increased, and if so, tihe ratepayers have to deci3e how many new licenses shall be issued. When the poll was taken three years ago, tile matter was treated by the ratepayers more in the light of a joke than anything else, and in numerous instances where the rate payers condescended to record their votes on the subject, the majority treated tihe matter lightly and facetiously voted for tihe issue of a fabulous number of new licenses. While we would prefer that municipalities should not be saddled with thei expense of taking a poll on this question, being of opinion that other and better methods could be adoptel of dealing with the issue of new licenses, we must remind the ratepayers that the poll must be taken on the...

OUR TAMBO CROSSING LETTER. Tuesday, August 1. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 3 August 1882

OUR TAMBO CROSSING LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Tuesday, August 1. If I have not troubled you much lately with my remarks, it is because the Valley road news has been the principal and you have had better informed and abler correspondents than myself to   supply you. At any rate the main thing has been that Messrs. Mills and Sandy's work is fast approaching com pletion without any hitch, and that Mr. White's is a good deal behind, and with so many changes of men as to prove that some unpleasantness existed. But a more congenial topic just now is reefing. I fear that Mr. Polick has been more seriously ill than he at first imagined, as he has not yet returned from Sale, so that Mr. Brodribb has   been left to carry on the work single handed, but I hear the ground continues to show well as far as he has been able to work it. Messrs. Sandy and John ston have also been prospecting and found another reef showing good gold, not for from Mr. Polick's, so t...

OUR PAYNESVILLE LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN- CORRFEPONDENT.) Monday, August 7. Before commencing this letter I have been waiting, Micawber-like, for some thing to turn up. As, however, I fear doomsday will be here first, I must even attempt to fill this with the article at my disposal. The only topic here is the weather, but as I reserve that for my private letters (and with which I have already filled three), I am heartily sick of it ; but last week certainly beggars all my experience for coolness. Well, in regard to the weather. Some three week ago a petition, signed by the fishermen of Paynesville, was forwarded to Mr. Ellery, the Government Astro nomer, asking that a barometer might be Placed on the jetty for the benefit of the fishermen. On Wednesday last, a letter was received from MIr. Ellery promising to supply a glass, so that one great want will soon be supplied in that respect. But there is another subject on which I wish to write, and for which a petition was forwarded about t...

NOTES FROM THE TAMBO. Friday, August 4. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 8 August 1882

NOTES FROM THE TAMBO. (FROi OUR0 OW" CORRESPONDENT.) Friday, August 4. We have had a glorious fall of rain, and there is now a good prospect of an abundance of grass in a short time. Our agriculturists are now very busy turning up the land for spring cropping and for hop and maize plantting, the late rains being very seasonablecausing the ground to be in fine working order just at the time when such is so requisite to suc cessful tillage. Selection is going on at a great pace in the Tambo district, for there is now about 3000 acres pegged out and waiting to be surveyed. Laud which a few years ago was not considered worth owning is now most eagerly sought after, a fact that in itself shows the rapid state of progression of the place. Captain Herbertson, of the s.s. Sarah, is now running regular trips up the river ; he is at present employed carrying hop poles to the various gardens on the river. N.ow that the nomination day is past we can indulge ourselves in speculating as to who wi...
