AN ENTERTAINING SPEAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 24 July 1914
FRIDAY, JULY 24, 1914. AN ENTERTAINING SPEAKER. The large audience addressed by Mr. W.'M. Hughes in the local hall on Wednesday afternoon must have had 'a real good time. Even those opposed at the speaker's po litics could hot resist a good laugh at his illustrations, and Mr. Hughes also had a good time. He did not go into politics very seri ously. It was only a little flut ter, and 'he came to please and en tertain. Funny stories and jokes help to keep an audience in good humor, but they don't count as sledge hammer arguments. Mr. Hughes' speech was superficial, and possibly he forgot he was ad dressing some hard-headed elec tors. He told the electors that the Cook government had invited the Senate to throw out the test bills. The government did noth ing of the sort. The Senate could have passed them. He ridiculed the Preference Bill, and said it meant nothing. Yet the same bill brought about the double dissolu tion, which has so upset Mr. W. M. Hughes himself, and the whole ot his...

TRARALGON TRAM BOLTS THE "GRIPMAN" HURT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 24 July 1914
TRARALGON TRAM BOLTS -o-- THE " GRIPMAN" HURT. The "gripnman" on the Trara! gon tramwa),'s service (Mr. Harry Johnson) had an exciting time on Tuesday last. He was engaged in bringing gravel from the pits. When descending Serjeant's hill with a full load on, a stone got oaught~ in the brake of one of the front truck, and it re fused to 'act. The break was then screwed down tightly 6n the back trucks, which caused one of them to leave the rails. The"' gripman" was also dislodged from his seat,. and had one of his legs jammed in one of the trucks, and he has since been unable to work. How ever, the service has not been dis located, as a new "gripman" was put on, and the trams were runn ing as usual yesterday.

TURNl ,OEF THE TIDE LUCK OF THE COURSING CLUB. S- Every since the Traralgon Cour sing Club opened their plumpton on the 'Fernhill Estate, want of sufficient hares has proved a great stumbling block, and very few meetings have been decided in the plumpton.

In some quarters. an endeavour is being made to use Mr. Mauger as a prop for Mr. Wise, an4 to taint Mr. Mauger's remarks, so as to make them appear to justify Mr.'Wise's position. I Uo not wish to put that construction on the.remarks of your Heyfield correspondent, Mr. Howard' in your issue of the 21st inst., but that is the evident in tention in other quarters. Mr. S. Mauger definitely - proclaimed himself at that meeting as a sup porter of the Liberal Government and its programme. He ':told his hearers that the Socialist Party were responsible for machine poli tics and that "Machine must be met by Dnachine." Referring to the question of preference to unionists, Mr.-Mauger declared that the Liberal Goveinment, and he as' a supporter, stood ;for prefer ence to no party, but equal justice to all....
