THE WEATHER. OMINOUS OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 28 March 1914
THE. WEATHEB.. OMINOUS OUTLOOK. A steady fall in the barometer on Wednesday and Thursday, and the. as surance of the. meteorologist that . a depression is.slowly approaching, led to the hope that. a bountiful :rainfall might be experienced.. Yesterday, however; the glass showed an upward movement, though still low, and only a disappointing thunderstorm, which gave scarcely enough. moisture 'to re gister in the gauge, was experienced. ,The outlook is now grave, for water is failing in all directions. Dams and tanks in many cases are exhausted, and stock is being driven to water ; whilst teams are-carting supplies distances of, in some cases, five' and six miles. Ad vantage is ;being. taken "of the dry, 3er oT thIe viitage, whilsf 'farming operations are confined to the turning of fallow. - In some respects the: dry weather is welcomed by cultivators, as it is' aiding inf'cloaning the land now being turned over.

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. A SILLY SLANDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 28 March 1914
SOUR MEILBOUBNE LETTER. A SILLY SLANDER. Still another of those very silly slan. ders of all things Australian has been exposed. It was.recently stated in a Sydney newspaper that already an enor mous amount of damage had been done to the Commonwealth flagship by the use of Australian coal. It was al legel that the engineers of the vessel bad admitted that the boilers were very seriously damaged, being as much injured during the nine months in use as if they had been in use for. several years. . A report was called for by the Minister of Defence, and he has been informed by . Captain Clarkson that the allegations are baseless. lie writcs :-"The statement is, in my opilion, absolutely devoid of any foun du(tion in fact. The only defect in con nection with the boilers that I am aware of is in the brickwork of the furllaces. It requires extensive re Iewal. The engineer commander of the Australia has informed me that the bricks fitted in Great Britain had proved to be inferior in quality...

ARARAT LIBERAL RALLY, VISITOF MR J. C. MANIFOLD. MJ.R ADDRESSES BY MR HANS IRVINE, i.H.R., AND MR NORMAN O'BRIEN. On Thursday -evening last a Liberal rally and musical social, arranged by the Ararat branch of the Australian Womenn's National Leagune, was held in the Town Hall, when there was a fair attendance, rully half of the audience consisting of ladies. The principal attraction for the evening was the pro posed visit of the Hon. W. I. Kelly, Minister of Home Affairs, consequently there was much regret when Mr Mani fold announced that he had received a telegram from Mr Kelly to the effect that he was prevented from attending through an attack of asthma. Prior to the opening of the meeting the Ara rat Citizens Band marched to the Town Hall, in front of which they rendered a programme of choice music. Owing to the unavoidable absence of the Mayor, Cr J. Irwin, occupied the chair. He said that on looking through the programme he saw that they were going to have more than a politica...
SENIOR CADETS. REGISTRATIONS NUMBER 28,777. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 28 March 1914
SENIO? CADETS. REGISTRATIONS NUMBER 28,777. There. is a considerable inlprove. ment in' the number of registrations of cadets this year in 'comparison with those that were. registered last year, and comprised the 1899 quotas. The latest figures that have been compiled by the Adjutant-General's department show that instead of there being 10,000 missing trainees there are only 6000, and that nearly all of those will be found in the exempt areas; that is, those districts which lie too far from training centres for the 14 year old lads to -be enrolled for military training. One of the 'nost important conclusions that is drawn by the military authori ties from the figures is that the public is taking far greater interest in the movement, and that practically all the boys in the training areas have been registered in the first two months of the year. Though it is still obliga tory for the boys liable in exempt areas to register, delay in these registrations being made is not of such great...

HONORARY JUSTICES. DISCUSSION AT A.N.A. CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 28 March 1914
HONORARY JUSTICES. DISCUSSION AT A.N.A. CON FERENCE. At the A.N.A. conference at Wanga ratta on Thursday, Mr J. Callaghan (Box Hill) moved-' That the confer ence is of opinion that the Justices Act should be so amended as to prohibit justices of the peace acting in a judicial capacity." Some justices, he said, were no: fitted for the position. The system was not a very satisfactory means of expediting justice. Many people who would not care to abolish justices of the peace would agree to curtail their powers. Mr D. M'Namara (Garfield) said the men to mete out justice should be Go-. vernment paid officers, not men who might be swayed by local bias. The system in New South Wales was better than the Victorian, where the system of administering justice by honorary offi cials was not very satisfactory. When a director, he suggested that the re form would, if carried into effect, in crease the laws and increase the expen diture. Mr Mfoir (Albert Park), said the re form would mean teat unl...
