SIDE-STEPPED DIGGER SETTLERS COMPLAIN BATLOW INQUIRY. Complaints that the Lands Depart ment, after having promised an in quiry into the conditions of soldier settlers in the Batlow district, had now side-stepped its promise, are con tained in a petition received at R.S.L. headquarters from Messrs. J. T. Kel sey and Ernest H. Bowler, president and secretary respectively of the Ku nama sub-branch of the League. The petition, which, it is said, re presents the views of the Digger settlers, sets out that on August 9 two delegates from the Batlow sol ders' settlement waited on the Un der Secretary for Lands with a re quest that an inquiry be held into their grievances, and that the Under Secretary promised that at 'the ear liest possible moment.'

IN THE EDITOR'S DEN [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 17 September 1928

IN THE EDITOR'S DEN j ? Back again to where the 'Muruiri- ( bidgee's flowing,' after a 14 day's spell in the city, to find a lot of water has passed 'neath the bridge in those two short weeks. Good old Jack Greenwell has left us for ever — ^ he was one of the men who 'went | out' early because he helped to stem j the enemy tide. Then Friend Lawr- ^ ence, guardian of the cash and over- j drafts at the Union Bank, has got , orders to move out Temora way. He was never a lime-lighter, but threw in his lot with every movement for the town and district's benefit. Again the never-still Stock Inspector, Mr. Doyle, has been transferred to another district. Mr. Doyle may not have been a Patterson at tennis, or a Lawrence Campbell on the stage, but 'as a friend to the .man on the land, he was one of the best, and knew his job from A, to Z. Then there has been a Hospital eruption, and wind and I'ain, and old-time re velry that is still the talk of the town. Yes, those two weeks have been full o...

DISILLUSIONED PROHIBITIONIST TEMPERANCE BEING DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 17 September 1928

DISILLUSIONED . PROHIBITIONIST TEMPERANCE BEING DES- i TROYED. 'Miss Ida M. Tarbell,' states the New York 'World' of May 31st., 'has been undeceived about Prohibi tion. She tells of it in the June number of the 'Delineator.' When Nation-wide Prohibition first went into effect she noticed in her travels about an absence of* 'drunks' who had before been such a nuisance on the trains and in the hotels. That de cided Prohibition for her. She thought it a grand thing. 'Now she awakens to the fact ihat the 'drunks' have come beck and in a greater force than before; and not only here in the East but in the sup posedly dry South and dryer West. They jostle and leer and rowdy about the hotels and trains worse than ever. Their ranks are being immensely re cruited from the youth and elders -who used to abstain. 'Over-Sunday drinking parties in Western and Southern towns are sometimes . , of dreadful proportions.' 'Her conclusions are that we have made a mistake. Prohibition can not simply be e...

WHAT DOES IT MATTER? [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 17 September 1928

WHAT DOES IT MATTER ? At Adelaide the ethics of educa tion were discussed by the Disabili ties Commission, which is inquiring into the claim of South Australia for £750,000^ on account of Federal disabilities. Mr. A. E. Barton, of Sydney, a member of the Commis sion, told the Director of Education, Mr.- W. T. M'Coy, who gave evi dence, that he, as a business man knew that boys from State schools lacked even the, elements of educa tion, and could not write or spell correctly. Their knowledge of essen tial subjects was poor, but they had a good grip of other subjects, and know a lot about notabilfties in the sporting world. 'What does it matter if they can't spell?, 'x asked Mr. M'Coy. 'There is always a dictionary available.' Mr. Barton admitted that, but said that spellers did not know when they were wrong. ;

Last week Mr. Justice Harvey re fused probate on an estate of £5250, because the will had been made on a printed form, on which the signature of the testator had been' affixed only on the first page. His Honor said unless the court was satis fied that the folding or manipulation of the paper really took place at the time of the signature, so that the tes tator did, in fact, place his signature at what was to him the foot or end, it was not justified in granting pro bate. ? s

Life Outback [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 17 September 1928

Life Outback When I commenced writing these articles about horsemen of the past I had one object in view, namely, to put into print the exploits of men whose names are almost unknown to many of the present generation, but I did not think at the time that so much interest would be taken in the articles. I have received scores of letters from Queensland, N.S.W. and Victoria, and they have told me much about horsemen whose fame had spread far and wide as far back as 60 and 70 years ago. There were many clever horse men in those far-away days, and Sandy Cameron, of the Upper Hun ter (N.S.W.) was amongst the best of them in the eai-ly . fifties. He is perhaps better remembered by old hands as a clever brumby rider, and it is said that even wihout a saddle he was never thrown. Sandy was a wild bushman, and on one occasion he was suspected of having 'duffed' some calves that were not his own. One day while he and his brother were at their stockyard they saw two mounted constables coming to...
