To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 March 1915
To the Editor of the Express. Sir,--In reply to the letter of Mr. T. H. Reynolds, which you kindly sent out to me for an answer to appear in this week's "Express," I have to say this, that the expres sion attributed to the ` Missioner, "Take no notice of the war, it is only a' paper war," was, as my let ter stated, being freely reported throughout the district. My letter was written with :the object of getting a denial; or other wise. That denial has now been given, and we are pleased to have it. But may I ask, what started these rumors ? My informants tell me that members of the Church, who stated they heard the expres sion used, were the first to mentibn the matter. Evidently, they must have mistaken the Missioner's mean-: ing, and they now must take the blame for. spreading the reports,-I: am, yours. &4c.

THE WAR. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 March 1915
THE WAR. To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-In the last issue of your paper there appeared a letter over the nom-de-plume "Louvain." The writer stated that "it is being freely reported that at the recent Mission in this town, the Missioner ex horted his congregation 'To take no notice of the war, it was only a" paper war'." It should have been the easiest thing in the world, before "Lou vain's" letter was inflicted on the public, to find out whether the re port were true or false. Witnesses, many and reputable and willing, could as easily have been found then as they can be found now, whose united evidence ought to be incontrovertible. Hundreds of re spectable inhabitants of Bacchus Marsh and the surrounding districts regularly attended the - Missioni' morning and evening St. Bernard's Church was packed; the local priests were present at every ser mon; and both the priests and the laity who attended the Mission tes tify unhesitatingly and unanimously that no such statement was made....

PRESBYTERIAN SUNDAY SCHOOL, BACCHUS MARSH. The anniversary of the above was celebrated on Sunday last, when the Rev. G. S. Brodie, of Sunshine, preached appropriate sermons, both morning and evening. On the Monday evening the schol- ars provided a very good entertain- ment, which reflected credit on their tutors, Mrs. B. Williams and her staff, who deserved the hearty vote of' thanks passed to them at the close of the proceedings, which was moved by Cr. C. L. T. Alkemade, J.P., and seconded by Mr. Wm. Grant, J.P., and supported by Cr. J. Wills. The hall was filled to overflowing, many being unable to obtain seats, who had to stand outside at the doors. This and similar gatherings proves the great assistance this pretty little hall is to Church work. The Rev. B. Williams presided &nbsp; &nbsp; over the gathering, and at its con- clusion thanked all who assisted, in- cluding the ladies who supplied an abundant supply of refreshments. During his remarks the Chairman spe...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 3 April 1915
ALTHOUGH the genus homo has ex isted upon this planet for at least 4,000 years,- it has not yet observed salus populi suprema lex, although blindly groping towards it by ob serving what Marcus Clarke called "it is customary." For this reason all the customs of Civilization are being secularised, including Easter Sunday observance is weakening. What the ultimate result is going to be is as inexplicable as the de velopments of the war, which every body is chattering about, but they will all have to wait and see. THE minute books of the Werribee Council should be looked up to find the agreement made with the Foots cray Council to construct a road over or under the railway at North Melbourne. The Wyndham Coun cil (as it was then called) had to advance money to the Footscray Council in order that Werribee hay growers could get to the hay mar ket. Footscray ultimately paid back the money. A similar agreement appears to be necessary now to effect drainage works required in the East end of ...

Then they emerged into the road and started off rapidly to wards the cliffs.
