Frankston man of thai meti igat'te "what occurred. After discussion, a resolution was moved and seconded that the. pro test be dismissed. Before putting the motion, I gave Dr Plowman an opportunity of withdrawing the protest, stating that I considered such a course would be preferable to putting the resolution to the meeting, and that, personally, I should be glad if he. could see his way to withdraw. DrPlowman at once adopted my suggestion, and withdrew the protest. The resolu tion was not put to the meeting, the same having automatically lapsed on the withdrawal of the protest.-Yours, etc.- L.

NATIVES OF TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 30 March 1912
NATIVES OF TASMA?IAA. Larly in this century the Islana of Tasmania, or Van Dieman's Land as it was once called, began to be peopled by folk from Great Britain. Rough times of h these settlers had for many a year, but their chief troubles came from Jhe blacks and the bushrangers. The numbers of the natives has never becn large, and con stant fighting with the new comers had reduced tke:n still more. Now this state of things shocked a good many persons, and Sir George Arthur, the Governor, tried to put an end to it by attempting to persuade the blacks to retire to a part of the island where they should be out of harm's way. But this well-meant plan failed, znd the cruel warfare went on as before. There was, however, a certain man ramed Robertson, a bricklayer and builder by trade, who was pained at the treatment of the blacks, and he resolved to do what lay in him to change it. His notion was to go single-handed among the natives, and advise them to leave the mainland altogether. Of c...

Some Brief Impressions and Comments CONCERNING DISTRICT SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 30 March 1912
Some, Brief Impressions and ,Comments CONCERNING DISTRICT SHOWS. (BY G.L.C.) At the outset let it be allowed that an agricultural and horticul tural show has some educational value. Its purpose is, or should be, by a comparison of exhibits, to show where faults exist; to reveal to the interested and intelligent observer the results of intelligent labor; to give to the man out for ideas of improvement some measure of his requirement, and to increase the knowledge of the productivity of the country. The recent show at Dromana, for instance, though interesting in its way, is capable of improvement. But to bring that about, it must receive the warm-hearted support of the district. Let it be allowed that some measure of sacrifice has to be borne by exhibitors in their patronage of a show, but this fact should be loyally and unselfishly accepted, because they, are render-. It may be said in all kindness that to stand off on account of the trouble incidental to exhibiting at a show is no a...
