"Even Betting." MR. W. M. HUGHES' TIP. Mr. W. M. Hughes, Attorney General in the Fisher Government; passed through Traralgon yester day morning bn his return from Sale. On the platform at the rail way station, he made a 'few brief remarks on the political situation to three individuals. One gentle man said this was going to be a keen contest. "Yes," said Mr. Hughes, "it will be very keen. If I were bet ting on.It I Ivould lay off, so that I should hot lose whichever side won. It will bt a close contest." Mr. Hughes also. said that the two sides seemed evenly balanced. The Liberals had been in power for some time, and it was possible that the pendulum would swing a little to the Labor side. A one per cent. 'gain would do it. He explained that he was not referring to Gippsland, but to the whole Commonwealth. Mr. Hughes also said that he was surprised that the Liberal go vernment did hot go to the coun fry on some big question, such as the Land Tax or the Maternity Bonus, instead of su...

ROSEDALE SHIRE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, JULY 21. Engineer's Report. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 July 1914
ROSEDALE. SHIRE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, JULY 21. Engineer's Report ! - I have the honor to report as fol lows: The heavy rain durig the past fortmnght has been the means of temporarily delaying a number of the contracts. Most of the con tractors, however, have their work well in hand. Contractor Bridges 1 has completed his two waterholes all- but a little fencing, when an inrush of water prevented further work. A temporary fence has been erected and the permanent work will now 'have to stand over until the summer. During the last week several portions of the shire have been in flood, but so far as I have been. able to ascertain, very little da mage has been done to the roads: The main Gippsland road, between I the bridges at Rosedale, has been inundated to a- depth of 3 feet, and all motor traffic and travel-. ling sheep has been blocked. Pe destrians have been carted acrossI in a cart by the council's dayman. ' "I have inspected and taken levels of the tlrain ht the rear iof the Ex chang...

LABOR'S FIGHTING PLAT FORM. --o-- FEDERAL ISSUES. The. distmnctlvely Labor propo sals which Mr. Fisher submitted at Bundaerg may be roughly divi ded Into two classes; those which are admirable, but Impracticable, and those which are practicable and injunrious. What kindly mor tal would not. lilke to see every widowed mother supplied'with-mo ney sufficilent for the wholesome upbnringing of her 4hildrtin? Where is there a globe trotter who woula not gladly sail In Mr. Fisher's ocean greyhounds which are to be so swift, ~o luxunrious, so ciheap?

HOW TO ENCOURAGE FARMING. TO THE PRIMARY PRODUCER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 July 1914
HOW TO ENCOURAGE FARM, ING. TO THE PRIMARY PRODUCER. Do you know that the country interests are. being sacrificed to those of 'the metropolis, and it so, do you 'not think that some steps ought to be taken to counteract the political influence of,.the peo ple of M?elbourne? Action should be taken at once, as every month's delay will result in the pohcleal interests of the centre becoming relatively stronger, and more dif ficult to overcome. The Gbvernment Year Book shows that in the census decade which ended in 1911, this State only increased its population by 10 per cent. Unsatisfactory as this this small increase is, when cen sidered -as a whole it is very much worse when considered in detail. The county of Bourke alone secured an increase of 99,378, and the other 36 counties only 11,80S, whilst the shipping population in creased by 2,542. These figures reveal a most un healthy condition of affairs, and should receive the immediate at tention of those who wish the State to prosper...
