No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 March 1915
THE Federal and the State Parlia ments will shortly reassemble, and there is to be a Premier's conference as well. The Philippine Islands are coming into prominence as a Com monwealth danger, and this further accentuates the necessity of concen trating Commonwealth action. THE war news is full of exciting in cidents, but no decisive event has arrived. The month. of May is generally expected to provide a crisis. Farmers are now busy with their seeding, and a view from the top of Mt. Kororoit gives us the idea that the area under crop this season will be considerably more than last year. Some are waiting for the rain, but those who have large areas under cultivation cannot do so. Many are still ploughing, or work ing their, land fit for the drill. Only five points of rain have been recorded for the week. Much more is what everyone is asking for, and it is hoped they will soon get it. The work at the weir is now being pushed on. They are getting ahead with the concrete core, and the co...
