PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kerang Times — 30 July 1889
PARLIAMENT. The disCussion on the withllolling of tmsunicipal subsidies fromn districts which wero in arrears in regard to interCest on water supply loans was important (ro -imanrks the A rig-i) as far as it went. Mr. hall o ipened.with the general proposition thait " all grants and subsidies toted by 'Parliament to municipalities sloidtl be paid to them witilloat any deduction lwhat ever," and he proceeded to dispute the right of the Government to ihpound any part of thie unIicipal subsidy due to a district, simply becanse a water trust in that district had niot paid interest on loans olbtained from the Treasury. A shire council and a water trust were different bodies, and one should not be lhel responsible for the obligations of the other. Besides, thie action of the iovernment was arbitrary, inasimnelh as but one or two small shires at a great ilistance from Melbourne trere dealtl with, while others nearer the city and able to commndnl tuore influence were not touched, though the...

So far there is but a very slight abate ;ment of the flood waters in thoe Ben jeroop East district, sineo the inundation .took place, and it is probable that the greater part of the water will lie on the land till November, as the Murray must lower considerably to allow the imponm * dad waters to drain away: If this por tion of the distret is to regain its prestige, as containing some of the finest farms on the Murray, something ilnst be done to control the waters in future. What was, a' few short weeks ago, fine thriving farms, with splendid crops, giving pro mise of a more than usually gool return, is not nothing but a stretch of dreary swamp, with crops irretrievably lost, and stock dispersed in all directions.
