Current Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
Current Notes. Complaints, loud and bitter, are very frequently expressed at the erratic manner in which goods are carried and delivered on this branch of our wonderful railway system. So eccentric indeed has the conveyance of goods become that people here have grown accustomed to the " nature of things," with the exception of some very uncomplimentary remarks upon the Railway Commissioners exchanged occasionally between disappointed con signees. A-- person may go to the station once, twice, or the third time for expected goods before he should be gin to think there may have been some neglect on the part of the sender. No 1 you are certain the goods were put on the train, and they must arrive here at some time or other ! And so they do, but almost invariably a few days after the time they are most ungently re quired. To state a case of our own, for -it cc,,-=g` 1wit- y* train +from Mansfield on Monday, 11th inst., did not reach their destination at the Healesville railway station ti...
The Guardian. PUBLISHED FRIDAY MORNINGS. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
PUBLISHED FRIDAY MIORNINGS. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21. 1893. WHEN a newspaper makes its first ap pearance in public it is expected to give some account of itself. People who are a o o for. tronage and support fly w hy itas and in what manner it ns to conduct itself . now t at it has arrived. Somebody has s id that of making books there is no nd. It may be said with equal truth fulness in these days that newspapers are started, on principles suggested by a study of the multiplication table, and it puzzles many what they all find to do. It will be the endeavor of those who are responsible for the appearance of THE GUARDIAN to satisfy inquiries upon these points. Firstly, THE GUAR DIAN has come to Heelesville because the field is unoccupied. The locality is a rising one, and every succeeding year it will increase in point of importance. It should therefore have its local news paper, because a well-conducted journal can do much in furtherance of its pro gress; that is why THE GUARDIAN is st...

GENERAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
GENERAL NOTES. [BY W.X.] The announcement that there is a disposition on the part of the Gvern ment to send to America for a gentle man to manage our railways, does not meet with general favor ; and, little wonder, in face of the fact that there is hardly a single railway in the United States which has been administered with sufficient ability to keep it from insolvency. The suggestion put forward by Mr. Shiels when he was in office, namely, that periodical confer ences or consultations amongst the senior officers of the Railway Depart ment, should take place, was undoubt edly a good one, and should le tried before we admit that the colony does not possess men of sufficient ability to manage one of the great departments of the State. The trouble into which an ex-member of Parliament has got himself may lead to fresh evidence concerning the _ disappearance of the 1Mace. Mr. John Brock, it will be recollected, was stated by witnesses before the Mace Commit - tee, to have asserted that...
"COO-EE." [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
" COO-EE." .The great new English dic tionary being published byvthe University of Oxford in the fresh part just published de votes some attention to the Australian call-word " coo-ee," which, it says, comes, from the aboriginal word " cowee-to come." To show how dis tinctively Australian the word is, the Dictionary mentions that two well-known and wealthy Australian squatters once lost each other in a London fog, and were only re-united after a series of shrill and vigorous "coo-ees." Yes, says "Punch" we have heard the story before. We have also heard of an Aus tralian in London who was boasting in a London club of the effectiveness of" coo-ee" as a call word, and guaranteed for a wager that he would go into Trafalgar Square and call " coo-ee," and get half-a-dozen Australians around him in five minutes. He went out, and he began calling "' coo-ee."' Whether there were' any Aus tralians about the tale telleth not, but there were many rag-. ged, rude little boys about, and they gat...

HEALESVIILE BKND OF HOPE. dot tor The monthlr meeting of the above NO soceity was held in the Methodist suc Church on Frilsy evening last, the Rev. is Mr. Gibbs (p'esident) presiding. The Th attendance Wvas somewhat meagre, lay owing no d6obt to the stormy appear- to ance df the night, hut nevertheless a on very pleasant, instructive, and interest- br&lt; ing evening's entertainment was en- to joyed. dii After the formal preliminaries of a opening the meeting by the President, several songs, recitations, and an able wi address were given in a manner which in reflected great credit upon the enter- cu tainers. Miss Hope Rodgers accom- te panied the singers on the organ, and al also played the various hymns, in very he skilful style. Master Shaw Roberts, th whose name appeared 'first on the pro- in gramme, recited "The Burial of Sir John Moore" very creditably for a lad s so young. Miss Rodgers followed by 0 rendering in an exceedingly pleasing Ic manner a song, the name of whi...

THE "VAGABOND" AND ABORIGINES. (To the Editor of The Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
THE "VAGABOND" AND &nbsp; ABORIGINES. &nbsp; (To the Editor of The Guardian) SIR,-Vagabonds are a class of people whom no honest and respectable person would like to associate with ; but it was very amusing to see the state of excitement into which the inhabitants of Healesville were thrown a few days ago by the arrival of "The Vagabond." My little boy came &nbsp; home from school, exclaiming- "Mother, &nbsp; the Vagabond's in Healesville!" And to see the business people and others how they fluttered and hovered around him, knowing that unless they paid him some such hom- age, they would get a very poor advertise- ment- if any. When he visited the bowl- ing-green gentlemen-of whom I would have expected better things-gave their subscription to get him a drink, because &nbsp; they did not wish to appear unsociable. Now, I am a woman, and my opinion of the a "Vagabond" may go for very little ; but I do think that he is a great coward. The unmanly...
HEALESVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
HEALESVILLE. BY "THE VAGABOND," IN LAST SATUR- DAY'S' LEADER. The visitor to Healesville finds a great delight in the journey thither. This line, from Melbourne to the mountains, is, with out doubt, one of the most beautiful in Australia and the world. After leaving Lilydale the railway plunges into the heart of the hills. But not by any means in a straight direction. There is a horseshoe curve round the Yarra Flats which greatly puzzles the uninitiated. The line, accord- ing to all local authority and independent expert opinion, should have branched off to the right at the present Coldstream station. This is the point, too, at which the projected railway to the Upper Yarra should diverge. At least so say some of the oldest inhabitants who are with me in the railway carriage on my present jour- ney. But the traveller to Healesville gains by being conveyed in a roundabout manner over the far famed trestle bridge to Yarra Glen. The avenue to Yering homestead is picturesque. Down on a ...

THE TARIFF COMMISSION. SITTING A'T HEALESVILLE. The mnemrners of the Tariff Commis sion held a sitting at Daly's Hall, Healesville, commencing at 10 o'clock on Thursday morning last. The Com missioners present were :-Mr. Bosisto (Chairman), arid ,Messrs. M'Kenzie, Tucker, Bromley,: Stuart, Andrews, and Tatchell, M's.L.A. There were about thirty ratepayers present in the hall to -listen to the pro ceedings, in which considerable inte rest was taken. The, Chairman opened proceedings by explaining the objects of the Com mission, which were, he said, to ascer tain the opinions of residents in vari ous cetitres with regard to the present fiscal policy of the colony, and how it affected them-whether detrimentally or otherwise. He explained that he had received an apology/from Mr. J. M. Keppel, President ofrthe Shire, who owing gentlemen, residents erar the town, after having d to the usual oath, then gave to the following effect: S im Edward Lindupp said he 3 at Gracedale, and that he was...
THE CORANDERRK ABORIGINAL RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
THE CORANDERRK ABORIGI- NAL RESERVE. This is what a writer in the Age of Saturday, 9th inst., says with reference to the throwing open of a portion of the Coranderrk aboriginal reserve, which is situated about three miles from Heales- ville, either as a village settlement or for selection. The land to be revoked &nbsp; from reservation is undoubtedly not the best portion of the aboriginal station, but it is a very wise proposal, in our opinion, that a portion of it at any rate will be made available for occupation, as it will afford a means of making much better use of the land which ap- pears to have been locked up for no profitable or "patriotic" purpose what ever. We here quote the portion of the article referred to, which appears under the head " Wise and Otherwise" : -" Healesville is up in arms at the prospect of the Coranderrk aboriginal reserve being 'settled' without the aid of Healesvilites. It is not that their generous indgnation breaks out irresis- tibly at the ...
SITTING AT LILYDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1893
SITTING AT LILYDALE. The same members of the Board as those who sat at Healesville on Thurs- day last, took evidence at Lilydale on Friday. The following is the report of the proceedings by the special reporter of the Age: George Edmund Overton, president of the Shire of Lilydale, was examined. He was a nurseryman and grazier at Wandin Yallock. He grew most descriptions of fruit and fattened dairy cattle. The tariff regulations affected the district, as the higher duties had led New South Wales to retaliate and place a duty on cherries, and this had shut out the trade. Before the high duty it paid handsomely to send ap ples and pears and cherries from the dis trict to Sydney. The stock tax did not affect him much. The railway rates pressed very hardly on the growers of the district, as the higher rates made it very difficult to compete against the fruit from other districts. At one time the rate on fruit was 4s. 9d. per ton; now it was &nbsp; 7s. 6d. To Mr. Stewart: The dist...

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 27. (Before Mr. John Monday, J.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 29 December 1893
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 27. (Before Mr. John Munday, J.P.) Senior-Constable Tevlin v. La Guzetta: Drunk and disorderly, and assault.-The prisoner denied the charge. Henry Christy, porter at the local railway station, stated that prisoner arrived by the 12.15 p.m. train on Tuesday. Asked him for his ticket, which he refused to give up. ' He wanted prisoner to go to the station master's office, and he also refused to do this, in the meanwhile walking away. He caught hold of prisoner to detain him, and in a struggle which en sued the accused kicked him savagely several times. Did not think the man was sober. The magistrate said it was useless for the prisoner to deny the assault, as he (Mr. Munday) happened to be on the station at the time, and witnessed it. Senior-Constable Tevlin said prisoner was undoubtedly under the influence of drink at the time. Prisoner was fined 10s. or 3 days' imprisonment.. The fine was paid.
