Preparing for the Fight. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 June 1914
Prelparing for the Fight. It is considered probable, that the Federal electiois will be oheld- towards the end of Augtal, or early in Septem.. her, and as these elections will colite earlier than was anticipated, the Victor. inn State elections will probably "he postponed till November. Both parties profess themselves to he well forward" with organisation for the election aonr. paign, but for a change, it appears that the L;iberals have on this occasion their plans further'advanced than have their opponents. -As things stand, there is I every prospect of Liberal gains in the lHoose of Ilepresentatives, by .winninig the lallarat seat in Victoria, andtwo or three seats in New Sdlth l Wales,:while the party leaders in Tasmania :have hopes of capturing, a couple of seats in that State. At. regards the Senate, it is merely a matter of a' stroig anid united effort upon the Iart of Liberals, aind es pecially those in the country, to win the whole six Victorian seals, and there should be 'a...

[?] The Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 June 1914
i F'rmers. Mr Paramor, the Labor candidate for Gleneig, told those present at the A.N.A. Hall last week, that the policy of his party favours the country producer. We have him, a, we had Mr .1. K. Me. Dougall, telling the farmers of this dis trict that the Labor party in out to help them in every way. Many farmers in Wannon. and not a few itn Glenelg be. ,haved tbis. and voted for Mir McDougall in 1910. They did not vote for Mr Me. Dougall in 191 . And why P Simply .because they had' found out meantime that while Labor candidates seeking the votes of farmers, insdly declared them. slvtes to a man, "farmers" (save the mark) or 'farmers friends," other mem. bere of their party, and even some of threi (when talking to city eloetors) had nothiun lut abuse of farmers to utter on this sbjaect But apart from talk. What about performanoeP Farmers in this distrit know allabout tile"help" (P) they havehtad from the Labor party up to date.

Tlie Constituto tliol provides for a doluble lissolution fa~ the express purposo of dealing with jolst such a diliieulty as ohas arisen. - Thi??s was realised by the Liberals early in the_ life of the present Parliament, whevlitheo Labor Party made it plahi,' that thoglig the electors lhad plnced the Liberals in office, the Cook Ministry would not he allowed to give etffeotto its policy' in practical legislntion, but would be folight to the bitter. end in the blouse of lRepre sentatives, and if successful there, wouldh be thwarted by th...
Country Telephone Services. Statement by the Chief Electrical Engineer. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 June 1914
(ioit ti :"', Teleplolii i tst*I vices. Staleu'l, uil, -by iI!: (1hh'ief rElectrical E,.rinici?r.' [BY C.E.H.] It appears to be. the impress ion in parts of Australia that the Post and :Telegraph' Department will not-' allow would-be Telo phone users to' erect their own lines. The Department does allow people to erect lines for themselves. Indeed it would ap appear to lbe imonssible for the Department to do otherwise in many country districts." "Speaking generally," the Post master-General reserves the right to cQnstruct any Telephone line within a town boundary, the user constructing the portion outside the town.. boundary.. There, are, however, : surveyed townships which'are not closely. settled, in .which it. nay be advisable that the Postluilster-General should grant permission for the users to erect the whole of such lines, even up to the Post Office. "It has been said by some farm ors that-they do not know any tbhilg at allabout electricity, and therefore canuot eect a Telepho...
The Present Situation. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 8 June 1914
The Presenst Bitntiol.:. ' With the constitutional siltuation created, through the Senate in tao slne. eeosive sessions failing to puss the Pre. ferenee Prohibition Bill, that had' been twice passed by the Ioouse of Reopresen. tItitves, the Governor-General became rested with nuthority to grant a double dissolution of both Houses. I[is Excel. lency has, on the advice of the Liberal Ministry exercised this authority. That Sir Donald Munro Ferguson would, if asked, grant the double dissolution, wan a foregone conclusion, 'because no sane man could hold any other opinion than this-that Parliament as at present con? stituted is at a deadlock, hopelessly ln. workable. and that here, therefore, we have exactly the situation which is pro. vided for in the clause in the Constitu. tion which gives authority to the Go. vernor-General under sulh conditions to let the electors adjust matters for them. nelves.
