STOLEN JEWELLERY. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 23 January 1914

STOLEN JEWELLERY. A sensational discovery of stolen jewellery was made last Sunday evening under a culvert in the Fitzroy gardens. The locality was watched by detectives from inside a wooden box until Tuesday morning, when a young man was arrested. The circumstances leading up to the finding of the loot are somwhat remarkable. About 6 o'clock last Sunday evening John Orledge, a resident of Bourke-street, city, found the day very oppressive, and he sat down under a tree in the gardens and read a newspaper. Feeling tired, he stretched himself on the grass near a wooden culvert. He dozed off and slept for some time. On awakening, he rolled over and looking up a long culvert, saw what appeared to be a lady's bag. There was a small quantity of water flowing through the culvert at the time. Becoming curious, Orledge secured a stick about 5 feet in length and commenced prodding in the drain. As a result, he brought out a patent leather handbag. Continuing his investigations, he found five ...

FARMING AND GRAZING. PROSPERITY OF THE CRESWICK SHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 23 January 1914

FARMING AND GRAZING. *—■— PROSPERITY OF THE CRES WICK SIIIRE. The year 1913 has established a fine record in the production from the farms, grazing areas, and rural indus tries in the Shire of Creswick. Figures tabulated from the annual summary of the principal despatching railway stations—Allendale, Kingston and Newlyn—all indicate a substantial increase for the pasL year. The con signments from Newlyn have been affected by the low pricc ruling late in the season for potatoes, large quanti ties remaining undisturbed in the pits. The demand created by the export trade has been responsible for a marked expansion in the live stock traffic at Allendale, upwards of 350 trucks of horses, cattle, sheep and pigs having been despatched for the year, principally (or the Melbourne and Ballarat mirkcts. The chaff mills established on modern and progressive lines at Allendale by Mr John Mills has been a great factor in the increase of produce. The sample and quality of the products have been of...

RAND STRIKE SEQUEL. * -— LABOR LEGISLATOR SEN TENCED. The prosecution took place on Friday of Mr F. H. Creswell, M.H.A , leader of the Parliamentary Labor party, on charges of having published an inflammatory pamphlet and having attempted to induce men to refrain from working. In giving evidence on his own be half, Mr Creswell declared that owing to the proclamation of martial law, he issued a pamphlet, instead of giving advice orally. He wished to advise the men that the best way of conduct ing themselves in the crisis was especially to prevent any public violence. Mr Cresswell added that he would always advise the men, once they struck, to stand together and be loyal to one another.

BEAUFORT STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914

BEAUFORT STRIKE. —T. Great satisfaction was expressed in the townships of Beaufort and Water loo on Saturday afternoon when it became known that the protracted and bitter struggle of nearly 19 weeks' duration between the members of the local brancli F.M K.A. and the mine owners of the Beaufort group had been settled. The men refused to work as a protest against the employ, ment of nun-unionists at the Beaufort Deep Leads, and at one stage of the struggle had persuaded all but one man to join the union. There are now some 30 non-unionists on the field distributed among the various mines. Prior to the strike all the mines on the field were union mines with the ex ception of the Beaufort Deep Leads. If the directors adhere to the open mine policy and instruct their managers to show no discrimination between unionists aud non-unionists, the strikers return to work losers by the struggle. A mais meeting of the strikers was held at the Societies Hall, Beaufort, on Saturday afternoon; abou...

While the residents of this locality will regret his departure, they will be pleased to hear of Constable Donald's promotion to the charge of a station. We understand that the vacancy at Creswick is not to be filled, and the extensive police d'strict of Creswick will be controlled by two men, probably a senior constable and a mounted constable. We certainly think that an endeavor should be made to prevent the lowering of the status of this police station. If it takes place there is every probability of Sergeant Robinson being transferred to make room for a senior constable to be...
