THE SPORTS AT WATERLOO. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 January 1880

THIE SPORTS AT WATERLOO. The sports at Waterloo on Boxing Day were very well patronised, and were, on the whole, a success. The weather was propitious, although too warm to be pleasant ; the attendance was large, and the contests for the va rious events were, generally speaking, sufliciently close to be exciting. The bulk of the prize-money was taken by outsiders, and some little dissatisfac tion was expressed at the handicapping, but we could only see that a mistake was made in one event, the 150 yards handicap, which was literally given to Evans, a Melbourne nman, who dis pIlaed such form in the first event for the Waterloo Cup that he ought to have been put on his mettle for the 150 yards race by a heavier handicap. As it was, lie won it without an effort. HIe also took first prize in the Cup, and defeated all comers in the runnming high jump. The hotels did a roaring trade, tUnt.nothvithstandine the patron age accorded in this direction, the day passed over very pleasantly, and,...

BRANDY CREEK ON BOXING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 January 1880

BRANDY CREEK ON BOXING DAY. The inhabitants of the little town of Brandy Creek were all astir on Box ing morning making preparations to follow out the inclinations of their hearts as to where they should resort to partake in the festivities of the day. Some who had been long absent from their friends scattered throughout the colony availed themselves of cheap transit by rail and made good their de parture; others wended their way to Drouin, -where a good programme of sports, and a quadrille party and con cert in the evening proved sufficiently attractive; others contentedthemiselves with quiet picnics in well-shaded pad docks, and no doubt enjoyed them selves equally as well as those who went further-and, shall we say, fared worse; others mounted their gallant steeds and rode far into the depths of the Gippsland forests, there to witness the beauties of our scenery and Nature in all her grandeur; others betook them selves to Mrs. Brown's Turf Club Hotel, where an excellent programme...

The Warragul Guardian. THURSDAY, JANUARY 1, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 January 1880

THURSDAY, JANUARY 1, 1880. A coN'STArrO recurring subject of dispute between the Buln Buln and Narracan Shires again cropped up at the meeting of the Narracan Shire Council on Saturday last. The mis understanding concerns an amount of £25 (moiety of fines), said to have been wrongly paid to the Treasurer of the Buln Buln Shire, for which appli cation has repeatedly been made by the Narracan Shire. The phase the matter has at last assumed is that the Buln Buln Shire Council, relying, we believe,, on a legal technicality, which would make it difficult for the other Council to enforce the payment of the amount, declines to entertain the ap plication for a refund of the money to the Narracan Shire. We quite agree with the remarks made by Cr. RorLo on Saturday last, and think that he might have gone further than stigma tising the conduct of the Buln Buln Council as inconsistent with honorable dealing. We must, however, do jus tice to the President-of the Buln Buln Shire, MIr. EDnEY, who,...

THE SHEPHERD AND THE LIBERAL SQUATTER. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 January 1880

THE SHEPIHERD AND THE LIBERAL SQUATTER. An old shepherd lay ragged and thin, In a comfortless hovel and bare ; His poor bones, they showed through his skin, And his sakin through his torn, tattered Ere l'eathing hIis hlst, there broke forth a cry From his lips that were bloodless and Blnt the squatter spoke never a word, He was deaf to the old shepherd's wail. Without nme, where would be all your gold? That dying, heart-broken shepherdl, he 'said: Untold guineas you got by my ne'er ceas ing toil, Toil that got ine little beyond mly mIre bradl. While, to get food for miy wife and llmy babes, I was giving up to you life, strength, and health, You fared well every day, and were stor ing awaly, A greedly, mlisrly treasure of wealth. You know well I could nothing put by, From tile sordid wage that you grudg ingly gave; At least not enough to keep mne when oll, And live in decency this side the grave.

Snm,-Having the proverbial tick-skin of. the Scotchman, i accepted the gratefulpost of one of the hlndicappers, knowing full well the difficulties of the position, many of the runners never having faced a starter before, and the capabilities of those who had being but imperfectly known. The dissatis. faction of which you speak Fns regards the handicapping, the columittee quite under stand was largely due, if not entirely, to one individual who had every reason to be dis satisfied, seeing that his contribution to the sports was "nil." To please everyone would be impossible, and anyone trying to do so would show but little sense. The winnerof the -440 yrds race in the Waterloo Cup was strongly advised "not to start," the handi cappers having treated h]iu unfairly. So much for the judgment of the dissatisfied section of the public. You say a mistake was made in the 150 yauls handicap. I can't see it. Two local men in the 100yards race...

TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. SmI,--Will you allow nme space to express my very great regret that the few remarks I made in my letter of 1st December in re frence to the reporter of the Warragul paper should have given such mortal offence to the editor of the Waterloo print, a paper of .whose existence I was in perfect ignor ance. I had no idea that my few and mild remarks would procure me the honor of a leading paragraph of nearly it third of a column, written in a spirit that showed the writer to be laboring under feelings that may be pleaded in mitigation of the offence of forgetting the courtesies that usually elumracterise the writings of gentlemen. It seems I have been guilty of the unpardon able offence of being a" person signing him self Mr. J. O'Connor," lut if this be object tionable to the refined nature of the editor I shall endeavor to he a "person" no longer. I must also apologise for my ignorance of the peculiar etiquette of the press room, a breath of which it s...
