How we backed the Favorite. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 6 November 1914

How we backed the Favorite. (By Spring Poet.) It was the Cup of nineteen fourteen, And the starters numbered twenty odd, As brilliant: a line of horseflesh That on Flemington e'er trod. Though we lived away back in the country, We took some interest in the steeds, For we followed up the racing, And knew every owner's breeds. Each sport amongst us had his fancy, With a lot of information up hii sleeve, Of times and records that the nag had broken Which no one but he would believe. Saint Carwyne was first favorite, With Uncle 3am close up, Whilst others said that Sylvanmore or Posinatus Was sure to win the Cup. At lust the day came for ihe race, But none had yet made ere a bet, It was such a task to pick the winner, As all the nags were good 'una don't force t. But we could not let the day pass over Without some interest at stake; So we got our local Ikey Mo A sort of book to make. Soon the mighty dollars came his way, The sweeps were soon filled up, And the speculators gathered round...

The Hobart "Daily Post" says; "At the Masonic Hall recently Mr. Wragge gave his hearers an outline of these forecasts. Referring to present conditions. Mr, Wragge said that there was 110 indication of any general rain over Australia, but he was of opinion that the weather conditions in 191-1 would be better all round than they had been in 1913.

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 November 1914

Melbourne Letter. (From our own Correspondent.) The State Parliament is up, and members are busily seeking tho suf frages of the free and enlightened. Mr. Elmslie, leader or the Labor Op position, has made liis policy speech to a comparatively small crowd, who represented the public in that they were not particularly interested in (he matter. Of his speech doubt less your readers have been fully ad v'sed of his policy. The last State Labor conference is the author. It appears that we are to have a Legis lative Council chosen on adult suf frage, which, if we take the Senate as a guide, will mean that for all future time the Council is to be the bulwark of Labor and not the saucer in which the legislative tea has to cool. Labor does not propose to impose extra taxation /'or "ordinary State purposes," which we may take to mean that as in Western Austra lia an attempt was made to balance the budget by tho imposition of what was called a war super-income tax, so we shall have extra taxat...

Coming State Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 November 1914

Coming State Elections. When they record their votes In a fortnight's time, Victorian electors will decide, amongst other tilings, how great sums of loan money arc to be spent. In a recent :ssuu the "Age" topk the Labor Governments of New South Wales and West Aus tralia sternly to task for reckless fi nance. We are about to enter on a period of heavy loan ilotation, and even more important than tlio extent of Labor's borrowings is the way in which it tends to spend money. This is more important, because for the moment all Australia is for a borrowing policy ; is adopting Great Britain's war watchword, "Business as usual," and is determined that it will play its part as well on the in dustrial as on the military battle field. For the momont then the question is not "How much shall we borrow ? " but "How shall we spend our loans ? " To the first Question Mr. Fisher and Mr. Cook, the Liberal and the Laborite, return pretty much the same answer ; one forced on them by events wholly beyo...

SPORT AND PASTIME. THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 November 1914

SPORT AND PASTIME. THE TURF. There is not the least doubt that the wet weather on Derby Day affected Mountain Knight in the classic event, and that the form shown by him in that race was all wrong. He has won twice since, and the manner in which he cut down the opposition in the C. B. Fisher Plate on Saturday will be remembered by those who witnessed the way he finished for some time to come. The time put up for the race (2min 33Hsec), equalled the record put tp by Radnor- last year. There is no doubt that Mountain Knight is a great colt, and if he keeps well he will cap ture another rich stake or two as a four-year-old. Swedish Lad and his rider were accorded a great reception at Flemington on Saturday when returning to weigh in. His vic tory was his seventh in suc cession, and the manner in which he carried 12.7 to victory stamps him as the champion 'chaser of Australia, and he finished as if another stone on his back would not have stopped him. It must be admitted that the field,...

Kaiou Chiau. Shortly after Germans took over frcm China thio Kaiau Chiau,- newly appointed Governor, the Admiral on the station and a Single Taxer were , dinning together, the chief subject of interest being the new territory recently taken over. The Governor, Herr Schraineyer, was particularly anxious to prevent the development of land speculation, which he had known to strangle other German colonies soon after being taken over. That was the opportunity of the land reformer. Carefully avoiding every appearance of being doctrinaire, he pur forward land values taxation as a remedy for the evils associated with land monopoly. The proposi tion was adopted as being practic able and effective. On the Governor assuming office he arranged to raise his revenue by the taxation of Land Values, and the colony has steadily prospered under the Single Tax sys tem. All land values in the Posses sion are taxed 6 per cent., and if any land be withheld from use an addi tional 3 per cent, is added eve...
