A CENTURY AFTER WATERLOO [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 10 February 1915
A CENTURY AFTER WATERLOO Dr Fitchett. in the February numb er of ''Lire," just issued, turns back the pages of history and points out that exactly a century ago Europe was freeing itself from a despotism built on force, and using war as its instru ment. "And," says Dr Fitehett, "1915 is born amid the shock of battles which in scale and slaughter are equal to a hundred Waterloos. Wat erloo was described by Wellington himself as 'the battle which did more for the peace of the world than any other battle in recorded history.' It certainly put an end to Napol eon's restless and insatiable ambition, and so delivered the nations from a military despotism. But in 1.915 four of the great Western powers, with Japan, the greatest power in the Fast as ally, are leagued to deliver the civilised world from the menace of a military cast which lacks Napoleon's genius for war—lucks even h:a civic genius—but aims, like him, at a des potisra built on force, and using war as an instrument ; a caste wh...

The committee having incurred a debt of about £250 in erecting a thoroughly up-to-date and commodious building, it waa con sidered expedient to lose no time in making an effort to reduce this in* debtedness, and some months ago a bazaar waa decided upon as the best method of substantially reducing the liability. On Thursday afternoon the opening ceremony was peiformed by Cr O'Brien, who expressed his pleas ure at being present to witness the efforts of the residents to raise funds for paying off the debt on the build ing. He remarked that this building was a pleasing contrast to the original ha'l, which cost something like JE40. Cr Cameron also made a few remarka congiatulating the residents on their public spirit in erecting such a fine buil iinp, and making such efforts to pay off the liability thereou. The bazaar was continu...
Cranbourne Sanitary Service. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 10 February 1915
Cranbourne Sanitary Service The Cranbourne sanitary service has for long been in an unsatisfactory posit ion, as will be seen by the following ex tract from the auditor's report, read at last Council meeting— The Lang Lang sanitary service ap- j pears to be on a satisfactory financial ■ basis, but the same cannot be said of the Cranbcurne service. The position for the year 1913—14 may be stated as fol lows— Amount paid to sanitary con tractor £129 IB 0 Amount collected from householders 63 10 11 Less cost of collec ting 3 8 9 60 2 2 £69 10 10 Which means that the shire as a total j Iris contributed more than half the cost of supplying the township of Cranbourn°> with a sanitary service for one year. The arrears are increasing out of all propor tion to the amount ot the charge, the total now being £145 19s 4d, and I am informed by the Secretary that the pros pect of collecting these arrears is not good. ?
