Trangie. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 17 June 1898
(from our own correspondent.) The Trangie Debating and lea provement Society held its weekly meeting on Monday night, and a fair muster of members of both sexes were present. The subject for debate was u Freetrade and Protection," and the views given by supporters of both sides were ably set down by those who spoke. The Club of late has added considerably to its roll of members, which numbers now some thing over 30. It is proposed to establish a kind ot club in connection vuth the Society in which chess, draughts and whist tournaments will be introduced. This is looked on by many as an excellent proposal, as debates, night after night during the long evenings of winter, tend to become wearisome unless enlivened by games of some kind. The female members, for instance, would prefer an evening once every two or three weeks, dnring which games, sing*ing, music, etc. could be introduced. I believe the Society had such a thing for a while las!, winter, and it was re garded as quite an imp...
