CUSTOMS DEPUTATIONS. Close Season for Quail. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 16 June 1888

CUSTOMS DEPUTATIONS. Close Season for Quail. A deputatiou,which comprised Mr. R Molesworth, Dr. Ryan, and other gen tlemen, waited upon thle Commissioner of Customs on Wednesday last, to ask that the close season for quail, which at present lasts from the Ist of August to 31st January should be altered so as to extend fronm 1st July to the 28th February. It was urged that many of the birds were too young to shoot in February, and that numbers of the young died owing to their being unable to rear themselvrs when the mother bird was shot. It was also pointed ount that the hot weather in 'February caused thebirds that were shot to be unfit ror eating. The Miniseer was therefore asked to add the month of August to the close season because the birds were then beginning to pa s. Mr. Walker, in reply; observed that the legislation on this subject was really for the protection of the birds. and he was oul tod anxious personall. to take, any steps that would be most conducive to their preser...

Land Purchase in Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 16 June 1888

Land Purchase in Ireland. ---o The following letter, from the pen of Sir Charles Gavan luffy, appeared in Monday's Times :-" Sir,-I interpose so rarely in Irish affairs that 1' trust you will think me entitled to say a word upon a current eontroversoy which in-. torests me greatly. The Government in their new land Bill take power to abolish the land Purchase Commission appointed under Lord Ashbourne's Act. Why do they desire to abolfsh it? Not because it has failed; for confsssedly it has succeeded far better than anything they have attempted in Ireland. Not for public convenience, I think ;'for'the court to which it is proposed to transfer the jurisdiction has already a prodigious burthen on its shoulders, and is no toriously overworked. Not for economy surely, for td save two moderate salaries when millions are to be expended, and a single blunder may cost more than many many salaries, is an impossible motive. Tihe Act is working fairlo well. It is promoting a change on which ther...

The Morwell 'Advertiser.' VOX POPULI. (PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY.) SATURDAY, JUNE 16. 1888. ROAD TO WALHALLA. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 16 June 1888

VOX POPULI. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY.) SATURDAY, JUNE 16. 1888. ROAD TO WALMALLA. It is many months since the survey of a road from Thonm's Bridge to connect with the Moe to Walhalla coach road in the direction of the latter place was pro mised. It does not seern to he gener ally known, that the populous thriving town of Walhalla is situated only about twenty miles from us. Although that place draws largely on the resources of the agricultural and pastoral districts lying at the foot of the ranges, we are aware that Morvrell is altogether excluded from the competition, although a considerable place of production a mining town requires. , iu fact there seems to be little knowledge, and con sequently little interest attaching to in creased market accommodation a con nection with Walhalla would give. Not only in this respect would it be an ad vantage to the residents of Morwell, but a direct road would increase the traffic passing through the place. It is a shameful fact, that persans ...

GAMBLING IN A LICENSED HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 16 June 1888

GAMIBLING IN A LICENSED HOTEL. Tuz news of the arrest of Charles Cove ney, the post-boy, on a charge of open ing letters and taking money therefrom, came upon the residents of Morwell with sudden shock on Wednesday last.' The lad was moet popular, and held in ge neral esteem on account. of his quiet, gentlemanly demeanor, and his civil, and obliging disposition. People ware loth to believe so serious a charge to be true ; and the case being sub judice, it is not within our province, nor do we desire, to refer to it in any way that would affect its most impartial consideration in tile slightest degree. We cannot, however, allow the fact to remain unnotien l, that it has become known the boy's m"oral degradation had commenced some short time ago, when the customs of civilized society, forsooth, allowed the boy's ac quiring the habits of drinking and gambling. Shame upon those who en couraged vices of the kind in a lad of tender years ! But greater still must be the shame of any one ho...

Yankee Grab was a seductive and withal by no means a dan gerout form of gambling taken in its original state, and before some evil fiend disclosed the dread secret of " buying in, " when it became even as unlimited loo and other ungodly diversions..
