TRUANT COUNCILLORS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 12 March 1886

TRUANT COUNCILLORS TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. SIR,--- How true is that "All that     shines is not gold ! " Such is my conclu- sion after reading the letters of " Icarus " and " Amicus " in The Sentinel recently. Passing over most of what these very in-   accurate writers have said--- particularly the absurdly ridiculous comparisons of     " Icarus "--- I must take exception to one statement made by both of your corre- spondents--- first the assertion made by " Icarus," who says:--- " Because Council- lors Ferrier and Parnaby are always out- voted,'' &c.; and next, that made by " Amicus," who would have everyone   believe that Councillor Ferrier " has only to bring forward a motion, and he and his         henchmen will be outvoted, no matter   how reasonable the idea he moots.'"   Now, what are the facts ? As you, Mr ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 12 March 1886

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. SIR,---The letters you published from " Icarus" and " Amicus " upon the above subject did not appear till they were called for by the circumstances of the case. We are at present face to face with a serious condition of affairs. Messrs Newnan, Bambrick, Street, and Dibley form a compact majority in the council, and may act as they please, unchecked, because Messrs Ferrier and Parnaby, who largely represent the in- telligence of the district--- and included in this description is a considerable num- ber of persons who have no confidence whatever either in Councillor Newnan or his followers--- have deserted their posts, and left the majority to do as they like. Such inattention to their duties as is dis- played by the truant councillors can only be justified by very powerful reasons. Do they exist, It is all very well for " Amicus " to assert that when Messrs Parnaby and Ferrier propose anything for the good of the district, that the majority immediately...

Wodonga & Towong Sentinel. "Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!" —MILTON. FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 12 March 1886

"Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!" MILTON. FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1886.     There are irreverent people, not duly alive to the beauty of good local government, who say that shire councils are not supremely excellent for the civic management of small country towns. We are sure that no one can be found so wanting in con science and decency as to say this of the shire council of Wodonga in con nection with the government of   the town of Wodonga. When the railway was made here, did they not use their influence to have the station put in a central position, and did they not fight might and main aga nst our principal street being blocked up ! Then that street itself-what a thing of beauty it is in summer ! So free from dust and glare, so admirably watered! The footpaths, too, in winter -where else could you find such an agreeable variety of lakelet,morass and stony rises ! The town lights, too, which can we say most of-the lavish expenditure of keros...

THE LATE ELECTION FOR BENAMRRA. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 19 March 1886

THE LAB' ELECTION F'O BENAMJfIA. ,Under the rather expressive heading "Bribery and Corruption," the following remarks appear in last week's People'e Tribune:-" The story comes to us well vouched, that during the late contest fator Benambra, much inftluence was exerted on behalf of the late sitting member, 3hr Peter Wallace, by the Government grant. ing special privileges to the district, through the agency of the brother of the -sitting member, who is a member of the Upper House, and who traversed the electorate with his lees capable relative, .scattering promises that may or may not be fulflled in the future. Mr Gillies knows by bitter experience that Govern ment departments may be used to in. fluence elections, as he was unseated for Rodney because of practices that were more than questicnable, so that anything that has been done in Benambra under his express sanction cannot be put down to the score of ignorance. We. would not blame Mr Gillies for the, promises of .an advance of p...

Sitc HEtrcY sl r.TaKc.s, as is his wont, delivered himself of an ocean of words last week at St. Leonards, near Sydney, pleasantly relieved from utter monotony by wholo archipelagoes of capital I's. One sagacious observation, however, ihe did make. In a con temptuous description of the new Juenings-cum-Dibbs Administration, ihe pointed out that sevenral of the icmmbers of that Government would not have belonged to it, had not better and abler men refused to join. It is no doubt duo to the inferior calibro of the present New South Ministry that a narrow-minded provincialist such as the Ilon. W. ,J. LYNre has been in cluded in the Government. .
