PRIME MINISTER HUGHES APPEALS FOR MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 February 1916
PRIME: MINISTER HUGHES APPEALS FOR MEN. "We appeal to the men of fight ing age in this country to enlist in the Australian army. We have now had over 16 months of war, and we have learned a lesson which has burned itself in the hearts of the most indifferent and apathetic of us all. The present position is one which it would be well for us to look at carefully, and in .detail, for there are some men. yet who live in a world of illusion. Their num ber is few, but it must be disturbed at all hazards. These gentlemen think that all is yet very well. But what is the position? . .... The war is coming step by step nearer and nearer to our shores. Hitherto, by the blessing of God, and by the might of the British Navy, we have been wholly spared the frightful horrors of war; but the position is one which must give every man who loves his country pause.

BACCHUS MARSH COURT. Thursday, Feb. 17. (Before Messrs. W. Lvle anid W. Grant, J.P's.) Charles McVicar was granted a stage carriage licehse. Leslie Exell was proceeded against by the Railway Department for travelling between Melton and Bac chus Marsh in a first-class carriage with a second-class ticket, on 26th October last. Inspector Dean, of the Railway Department, said defendant's excuse was that he had got into the train in a hurry, after placing his bi cycle in the guard's, van. The guard's time sheet showed that the train stopped at Melton for 10 min utes. There was also plenty of room in the second-class carriages. Two letters had been sent to the defendant,- giving himn'the opportun ity to pay the excess fare (4d.) and no further action would be taken. These letters had been ignored, therefore he asked for a heavy pen alty, as it was public money they were dealing with, and a- public De partment -had been set at defiance. Win. Hopper, special checker, gave evidence in suppor...
