Hiawatha News. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 10 June 1914

Hiawatha News. (from ouk own- correspondent.) A meeting of residents was held in the Fairview Hall, Hiawatha, last Thursday night, to discuss the Mac iu lay-road, which has been commenced and left at a dead end. It is well re membered that this proposed vo-.d was thoroughly discussed about live years ago, when the settlers were asked to provide £S0 towards the completion, and so far very little has been done. It is believed that the matter now lies in the hands of the Minister, from whom a definite reply should have been received long ere this. It was considered, even though some drawback has cropped up, the balance' of the road through Mrs. Cranny's should be done and also fenced, which would mean a saving of time after wards, and when the money (which we believe lias been put on one side) is lying idle this" portion should be gone on with pending a decision on the rest of the route. When the rest of the river road has followed tin frontage it cannot be understood why the frontage ...

GOOD ADVICE FROM CUNYAH. REFERENCE IN THE SENATE. The remote locality of Gunyah has attained notoriety. Its Progress As sociation last week passed the follow ing practical and sensible resolution, : showing the trend of thought in that lpcality :— '"Seeing that the Federal Parliament has done nothing useful for the past two years, this meeting of the Gunyah Pro gress Association respectfully asks the members of Parliament to cease sitting for two days, and to vote the money thus saved to constructing a good road from Boolarra to Gunyah, as such a road would result in thousands of acres now closed to traffic in the winter being made produc tive, and would open up for the Common* wealth a permanent source of agricultural and pastoral wealth." In the Senate on "Wednesday, says the "Age," Senator Blakey (V.) asked the representatives of the Government whether it was intended to follow the suggestion from the Gunyah Associa tion, which was that the Federal Par liament should suspend its ...

Smith was the only man ab sent from Yarram, and lie was greatly missed on the forward lino.

Both teams kept their places well, and a fast open game of foot ball was witnessed. O'Kcefe is the power bolrind the throne on the winning side, and there is ho doubt that his couching...

To the Editor of the Gippsland Standard [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 10 June 1914

To the Editor of tho Gippsland Standard SlR»—Will you allow me space in your columns for a few lines in reference to your Hiawatha correspondent's news of Juno 5th, in which I am sorry to say he is under the idea that the Stacey's Bridge Rifle Club had not fulfilled their promise in supplying targets for their branch range. Certainly the timber for.the tar gets did not come with the iron frames, which we naturally thought would come later; but, as this was not the case, we decided that the material could be got in our neighbouring township. I think if your correspondent inquired of some of his rifle men ho would find this tho case. Also, I think ho slips a little when he says he hopes tho Stacey's Bridge will soon send along the balance of targets, as it was ar ranged the Hiawatha people would cart the material, which ono ri/Jeman kindly consented to do. It seems a pity this block has occurred, considering the rifle men ore so enthusiastic with their mus ketry ; but I think if the H...
