Mr. Cotter Again Selected for Richmond — Old Member Has Big Majority. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
Mr. Cotter Again Selected for Rich mond - Old Member Has Big Majority. As expected, Mr. Cotter easily won the Labor selection ballot for the Richmond seat in the State Assem bly last Saturday. Mr. ., J. Cotter, the sitting member, was opposed by Mr. J. J. McDonald, of the Liquor Trades Union, and Mr. J. M. Sheehan, of the Railways Union. It was gener ally understood that the chief reason for the opposition to Mr. Cotter was his action in voting for the closing of hotels at 6 o'clock. There were many allegations that the Richmond branch of the P.L:C. had been inflated in liquor trade interests, but this did not affect the present issue, as the new members had not been long enough in the branch to be eligible to vote at the selection, and the chances of Mr. Cotters opponents were further de creased by the fact that neither the Hotel Employes' (Male) Union, nor the Victorian Railways Union had af filiated with the P.L.C.; their mem bers, consequently, could not vote. Mr. Cotter won eas...
ANNOTED PROVERS. (With special reference to War conditions.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
ANNOTATED PROVERBS. (With special reference to War conditions.) "There is no use crying over spilt milk." Of course not, with milk at 6d. a quart! The only thing to do is to scoop up as much as possible as quickly as you can. "Time is money." Yes, by Jove! and what's more, so is Overtime. "It takes nine tailors to make a man." That was before the War. One Military tailor will do the trick to day. "The pen is mightier than the sword." Well, perhaps-if you are bent on maintaining a strict Note-rality. Diner: Isn't this rather a small steak? Waiter: Yes, sir; but you'll find it will take a good while to eat it! He 'was a substitute camera man, and she was an "extra" maid. He spoke his love to his turtledove in the language of their trade. "Oh, .dearest one, will you marry me, and be my guiding star? You play in my soul a leading role, and the queen of my heart you are. I register bliss at the thought of your kiss, and I dream through the tinted nights of my love, that is true and as wa...
From Various Sources [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
From Various Sources It looks more and more as if the Kaiser, who expected to bag the whole of Europe, would. have to be content, ultimately, with the last four letters. "What I want is a £45 house on two floors, of about ten rooms, no base ment, central heating, secluded, yet not---" "Ah, madam, you're but a stranger here. Heaven is your home!" "Winter's Pie."
East to West AUSTRALIA'S STEEL GIRDLE. BUILDING A GREAT RAILWAY. GIGANTIC SCHEME IN THE MAKING. Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
East to West AUSTRALIA'S STEEL GIRDLE. BUILDING A GREAT RAILWAY. GIGANTIC SCHEME IN THE MAKING. 1,"y Senator P. J. Lynch, Minister for Commonwealth Works and Railways. Melbourne. The Commonwealth railways hav ing been placed under my control as Miinister for Works and Railways, and much comment having taken place in Parliament and the press as to cer tain matters in connection with the carrying out of this great work, I de cided that I would personally inspect the line. With this object in view, I arranged to return from West Aus tralia overland, and accordingly left Kalgoorlie with a party and the ne cessary officials. This railway is unique in that there is civilisation at one end, Kal goorlie, and at the other end, Port Augusta, and practically nothing but uninhabited country for the 1056 miles intervening. Everything re quired has to be drawn from one end or the other, and much of the ma terial brought from Kalgoorlie had originally to be carried by rail from Fremantle. It will ...
The SEED of EMPIRE Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., London & Melb. CHAPTER LII. The Next Day. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
The SEED of EMPIRE By FRED M. WHITE, Author of "The Day," "The Crimson Blind," "The Law of the Land," "The Corner House," etc. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., London & Melb. CHAPTER LII. The Next Day. It was just before dawn next day that the Germans made their initial attempt to recover the ground they had lost at Neuve Chapelle. This first counter-attack was promptly driven off with heavy loss, and the retreating Germans were pursued until they fell back on their machine gun strongholds in the farm-houses on the Pietre road. It was a costly proceeding for the Germans, espe cially for the reinforcements, which were shelled heavily ty our artillery as they advanced through the wood; indeed, for days afterwards the en emy were observed bringing out their dead from the undergrowth and bury ing them in the field behind. All that day, too, the Germans heavily bom barded the British lines, but alto gether without effect. During the whole of that day and th...
AIR-GUN DANGER. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
AIR-GUN DANGER. (To the Editor.) Sir,-The latest letter on the above subject has cleared the atmosphere completely, because no air-gun made would take a shot as big as a large pepper-corn; it must have come out of a pea-shooter, or the kind of gun used by Mr. Litchfield to shoot spar rows and pigeons with at Bellarine. As "Dreamy Daniel" does not suit his literary taste, perhaps he has heard of Solomon, who quotes, "get wisdom; and with all thy getting get under standing." His understanding of shot is still nil, as there is no such size made as No. 0. His acquaintance on the tram must have swallowed one of the Pharaoh's serpents referred to in his letter, and had a bad night, which accounted for his lateness at the office. It surely was a-case for the ambu lance. The patient must have cried out, "Get off my nose, I canrxot breathe." Despite the protests, there will be as many air-guns sold next Christmas and as many sparrows and pigeons shot at Bellarine. Yours, etc., Swan Street. H...
OPEN COLUMN RICHMOND PRE-SELECTION BALLOT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
OPEN COLUMN RICHMOND PRE-SELECTION BALLOT. (To the Editor.) SSir,--I hope you will permit me space to comment upon certain state ments which wer'e made in your issue of January 20. Firstly you say that ."it is common knowledge that the local branch of the P.L.C. has been greatly inflated-in membership," and you leave your readers to infer that this was done with the object of defeating Mr. Cot ter at the pre-sgection ballot., This shows either a remarkable lack of knowledge on your part or a desire to mislead your readers. I take it that you spoke from want of knowledge. kre you aware that a member of the P.L.C. must be a financial member of that body for twelve months before being entitled to vote at the pre-selec tion ballot? The official list of the P.L.C. contains three hundred mem bers to-day, but only 134 of those were entitled to vote at the ballot, show ;ng that, if there has been an "infla tion" of the membership, it was not ?ie to an intention of defeating Mr. Cotter at th...
RIVERSDALE TRAMWAY PARK. IDEAL SPOT BECOMES PROPERTY OF TRAM TRUST. NO REAL EFFORT YET MADE TO CATER FOR PUBLIC SIGN-BOARDS, SHORT EXTENSION AND OTHER FACILITIES REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
RIVERSDALE TRAMWAY PARK. IDEAL SPOT BECOMES PROPERTY OF TRAM TRUST. NO REAL EFFORT YET MADE TO CATER FOR PUBLIC SIGN-BOARDS, SHORT EXTENSION AND OTHER FACILITIES RfEQUIRED. Some time ago; through the good offices of Cr. W. G. McBeath, J.P., of Camberwell, a magnificent piece of un dulating country, 137 acres in extent, was secured to-the eastern metropolis as a permanent park. In due season, all legal formalities were complied with, and the property vested in the Hawthorn Tramways Trust to be de veloped for the benefit of the people. The official reports (which seldom travel beyond the narrow confines of officialdom) depict tersely the main features of the deal as to cost, posi tion and prospective value from the view-point of a business bringer to the trust's funds. Nothing, however, has yet been done to acquaint the public mind of the priceless boon that the public-spiritedness of Cr. McBeath placed within reach. The municipali ties of Melbourne, Richmond, Haw thorn, Camberwell an...
