VIBERT VICTOR. RODNEY SBIRE COUNOIL'S CLAIMI. DECKING OF TEE HIGH ROAD BRIDGE. A BLUE GUMI CONTROVERSY. &LLEGATIONS OF SINISTER INFLUENCES. VIIERT GETS THE VERDIOT. SHEPPARTON SHIRE MUST SHARE THE COSTS. Shire councillors, of late, have beei very unfortunate in their appeals for legal redress. They aighlt, like Mrs Gumamidge, declare that everything with them has gone "contraily" in the courts of law. Rodney Shire couccillors are the katest to acquire an experience which will be long a source of grievance to ratepaycrs, since with less impetuosity and more of the spirit that leads to amicable oettlemennt, there need not have boon any necessity for the case whibch, in the Shepparton County Court on Thursday. after a three days' hear ing, resulted in a verdict for the defen dant, Mr E J Vibert. And the total costs of both sides, which Rodney will harve to pay, are not likely to be under £250. ilurthermore, portion of that Shepparton Shire will have to pay, for this shires, in ...

"SHE." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914
"r SHE." THE education of the girl is a subject that is receiving far greater attention to-day than ever before in the civilised world. It would be easy to build up a great system whereby our girls could be taught all manner of useful crafts and professions-from the arguing of lawsuits, the building of houses, the mending of limbs, and auditing of balauce-sheets, down to the production of caulillowera and the weaving of bootlaces. But it would be practically certain that after the State had expended its money and the technical schools had been built and years of time and moun tains of trouble had been devoted to turning out pupils thorongltly skilled in these professionas, the pupils would, ill nine cases out of ten, a!opt another plrofession for life. The architect would flod some hapless young man in need of a house; the doctor would be called in to consult with some rival of the other sex; the auditor would come upon the tangled accdunts of some innocent speculator in obvious nee...

Shopparton bas gono through se far wihout a defeat Though it was only a narrow mejority of two points that saved it in the match against Tatura. The play of the local team since thoen has been quite up to tho standard df last year,.and Captain Darcy has again got his men into a splendid systeim. Some of the plyers, howeover, must got accustomeod to tbh mnthod of getting rid of the ball quicker when emght by an opponent. Two men who hangrather long to the ball, but otherwviose are brilliant playors, are M'Coll and IM'Casklill; while Shep parton's ubiquitous rover, Morris, is somewhat inolined to the same fault. The latter often gets rid of the ball " just in time " to got the benefi6t of the doubt. It was unfortunate last Wednesday that Eohuca should have been minus several players; for no dnubt this fact helped grea...

THE JUDGE SUMS UP. "A PLAIN BUSINESS PROPOSAL." THE FLY IN THE OINTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914
THE JUDG SUIMS UP. "A PLXIN DUSINESS PROPOSAL." THE FLY IN THE OINTMENT Judge Johnston was very brief. His Honor told the jury that the main fight between the Rodney Colinoil and the defendant was whether the timber.sup plied for Ithat bridge was blue gum in the "trade" sense of the word. That was the main issue. If he ought to have supplied true blue gum, or euca lyptus globulus, then the plaintiffs had a right to recover damages for ,his hav ing supplied an inferior article. That was the law on the subject. It was a commercial contract; it was a plain busi ness proposal. If, on the other hand, he ctntraeted t I supply only what was blue gum in the trade soeuse of the term, then he had done his duty, and he ought to win on the see ; and then it would he his duty to enter a verdict on the councer claim. The damages he elaimed were : £81 2s 1O, his deposit; and £46 18s 7d, as the price of the tim ber belonging to him actually used by the plaintiffs-total, £78 is 4d. If the plsintiffs...

LIGHTS OF BHEPPARTON. CIVIC 1NOUR810N FROMI WANGARATTA. COME TO TAKE "NOTES." THE ILLUMINATION OF OUR STREETS. The appearance of four motor cars in proceesion through the principal thoroughfares of Shep parton on Saturday afternoon caused a good deal of speculation among citizens. Contrary to the surmising of a'wildly-imaginativo individual, it had nothing to do with the Double Disseolution. The mission was one of peace and good will--and the en-light-enmant, the visitors being no other than Or George Maxwell, mayor of the borough of Wangaratta, and his colleagues, Crs W J Smith, Sand ford, Teague, Purbrick, A H Smith, Tweed, Edwards and Prentice; Mr T C Muntz, town clerk; Mr W HI Scott, engineer; and Mr E Ri Livine.L treaeurer; also Mir W7 J.

MR DIXON'S ADDRESS. A MATTER OF "WORD TWISTING." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914
MR DIXON'S ADDRESS. A MATTER OF "WORD T WI STING." L-oking up at the court oloek-which is not always corrcti-Mr Dixon (coun seoi for Vibert) told the jury that his addreess would be very brief. He thought Ihat in this cse there had been from beginning to end all attempt on the part of certain persons to twist wordi. Plaintiffs had, in the lirst instance agreed to aocept stringy bark or blue gum; and Vibert's tender stated "stringy hatk, and or blueoo gumn." He had the option to supply which he liked; then osame the question of the "long lengths," involving a dispute over 23s. Then more word twisting followed, the words "blue gunm" being given a moaning never reaognised in the trade. Eflorts had also been made to twist theo mening of the words in the letters put iu-lho most extra ordinary and unlikely meoanings put to phrases written a year ego. First of all stringy bark rnd blue gum were classed together, the confrartor being given the option to supply which he liked. The price to b...
THE LAST THREE WITNESSES [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914
THE LAST THRBEE WITNESSES There was no response when the name "'Henry Woods" was called. " Strange," observed Mr H J Cohen, "wo have many kinds of wood here, but not this particular Wood." The last three witnesses for the defence wore then called-on Thursday afternoon. Charles Grey, bridge contractor, of Shepparton, said that he had beesn in the business from 25 to 30 years. He had had experience in timbers; know the names under which they went in the trade; had no dilliculty on the matter; and was able to say that exhibit No 9 (taken from the levoae bridge, part of timber supplied by the defendant), was blue gum as known in the trade. Rssmus Jorgen Lsrsen, mine manager, and associate of the U]eudigo School of Mines, stated that he had had for a long period experience in selecting timber for mines. The exhibit shown him (No 9), was blue gum in the "trade" sense. W J Nighltingale, wheelwright, of Bhopper ton, had had many years' experience; and he could say that exhibit No 0 was blue...

MR HAM'S ADDRESS. "AN OBSCENE ORATORICAL FLIGHT." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914
MR HAM'S ADDRESS.. "AN OBSCENE ORATOBICAL FLIGHT." "I propose to dismiss with a waive of the hand," said Mr Ham (plaintlifse' counsel), Mr Dixon's. statement of misrepresentations. When Mr Martin (Rodney shire seoretary), said to Vibert, "If you don't sign that con tract. Miles will,' it was only a friendly. warning. There was no materialityin thise alleged misrepresentation, To up set this cootraot there would hasve to he fraudulent misrepresentation. The real question weeas: Was the contract that wes made, carried out? It had been sought to draw a lot of herrings aeros tbhis path, An outstanding feature of this case was this; when the specifi cations were drawn up they had to bs referred to both Shepparton and Rod. ney Counoils, for the bridge decking was a joint work, though the Rodney councillors were the people to see to the contract and had everything to ~o with it, Counsel for the other parties habd complelely neglected to refer to the tlndor of CoUonh. and Co5 who wanted 17s...
DOOKIE COLLEGE REPORT. GENERAL OUTLOOK SATISFACTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914
DOOKIit COLLEGE REPORT. GENERAL OUTLOOK SATISFAC. TRY. The reports of the Principals of Dookie and Longerenong Agricul. tural College for the month of May state that seeding operations, now in full swing, are being carried on under very favorable conditions. During May 150 points of rain fell at Dookie and 102 at Loncerenong. Up to date at Dookie, 750 acres have been sown, including 400 of wheat, 280 oats, 40 peas and 24 barley. About 7 acres of the earl:est sown wheat have required to be re seeded on account of poor germination. The generaloutlook is satisfactory and the live stock are all in first class condition. The working horses are on a daily ration of 35 lbs oaten chaff, 12 lbs crushed oats and 2 Ibs bran. Mr Pye, the Principal, draws attention to the fact that the Millers' Associa tion has decided to give an extra 3d per bushel for Comeback wheat. This variety has been grown at Doockie for the past 15 years, and once or twice it has given the top yield on the farm. The dema...
MR COHEN'S ADDRESS. BURGUNDY WINE—AND CHAMPAGNE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914
rI COHEN'S ADDRESS. 3UI3GUNDY WINE-AND CIIHAM PAGNE. Learned council for the Rubicon Co. (Mr K J Cohen), intimated that he also would he very brief-end then looked up at the court eloyk. He said he was in this unfortunate position-having to carefully avoid the ground which Mr Dixon had covered to such an extent. The firsal thiug he desired to draw the jury's attention to was, whlether the botanical definition of the trade meaning of blue gam was to be recognisoed. Mr Ham, in dogmatic fashion, had said that there was only one blue gum known throughout the world. But for that statement there would have been no necessity to refer to books on the sub. jeot, to show that there were 16 varie ties. The defendant's was a commercial contract, and the jury had to determine according to commercial ideas as to what was blue gum-what was meant by blue gum in the trade. When you asked for Burgundy wine, for instance, you never expected to get wine that came from the Burgundy district of France. Y...
