EXTENSIVE DAMAGE. BENDIGO, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 12 January 1914
EXTENSIVE DAMAGE. BENDIGO, SATURDAY. Sedgwick district was swept by a destructive bush fire last evening. &nbsp; The outbreak occurred on Mount Herbert, one of the eminences on the Mount Alexander range of hills, about two and a half miles east of Dr. Atkinson's Ravenswood estate. The fire was carried by a north westerly wind over smaller estates known as "The Spring-, and &nbsp; " Preston Vale." Many thousand acres of grass were burnt, also a quantity of timber. Several houses were saved by the strenuous efforts of the firefighters, who turned out in large numbers from Sedgwick and Mandurang. At night the fire resembled a bril- liant pyrotechnic display on the hills. Though it was still burning this morning its progress had been checked.

THE TARIFF. INTERSTATE COMMISSION. MELBOURNE, TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 14 January 1914
THE TARIFF. INTERSTATE COMMISSION. MELBOURNE, TUESDAY. The Interstate Commission con* tinued taking evidence to-day in connection with the bUot industry. J. H. Hlarkn.ess, manufacturer, said that his firm's experience as to increased cost of manufacture since 1907 was that it was 25 per cent., not 40, as stated by the Boot Manu facturers' Association. In 1912 wages paid in industry in Australia were £244,000 more than in 1909, although workmen had decreased. Some of the materials used in manu facture of- boots were not yet made here, and those that were, were not as good as the imported. Charges made in the first Federal tariff had been rather against development of the boot industry than for it. A factory capable of turning out 5000 pairs of boots weekly would cost about £5000, exclusive of working capital.

GROWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 14 January 1914
(JRO WLS. (BY "THE GRUMBLER.") In the "Argus" last week a con tributor furnished a lengthy article on our railways, but as usually hap pens with such writers, his vision was, for the major part, bounded by the metropolitan area. He can have a very slight knowledge of our back block railways or he would not write: " It is possible, therefore, to make some comparisons between our railways and those of other coun tries. Anyone who does can only come to one conclusion, and that is that the Victorian railways, in all the details of management, are equal to any in the world; and, as far as passenger transportation is con cerned, and general upkeep of rail way stations, permanent way, and rolling-stock, it is superior. Generally speaking, therefore, if there is a fault in our railway management, it consists in provid ing too good a service." " Too good a service." Let us see how this works out. Almost daily there are complaints in the Melbourne press about the suburban trains. If these com...

CRICKET. COUNTRY PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 14 January 1914
CRICKET. (NOTES BY ORTios.) COUNTRY PROSPECTS. Some time ago the Melbourne Cricket Club talked a good deal of fostering country cricket. Various schemes were considered, but noth ing very defiuite was adopted. Since that time the M.C.C. has sent several teams to the country, but the extent of their " fostering" has stopped at that. Now the Victorian Cricket Association proposes to do some thing in this direction, and it looks as though country cricketers will soon be given an opportunity of showing their abilities to critical Melbourne. Whether this will lead to any of them getting into inter state elevens is open to doubt, but they will, at least, have had the satisfaction of coming before the selectors. The Victorian Association's action was decided on at a meeting on Monday night, when the executive recommended that a combined country team be brought to Mel bourne to play against a V.C.A. team. Mr E. E. Bean, who moved the adoption of the recommendation, explained that the idea w...
