A DEAL IN SLEEPERS. EXPLOITING THE COUNCIL. REJECTS — SOME ONLY FIT FOR FIREWOOD. SOMEONE MAKES A BIG PROFIT. UNSATISFACTORY CONCLUSION.—"THE MATTER THEN DROPPED." [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 6 March 1914

A DEAL IN SLEEPER8. EXPLOITING THE COUNCIL. REJECTS — SOME ONLY FIT FOR FIREWOOD. SOMEONE MAKES A BIG PROFIT. UNSATISFACTORY CONCLU SION.—" THE MATTER THEN DROPPED." At the February meeting of the Waranga Shire Council an account on the pay-sheet of something over £71 represented the purchase of over 500 reject sleepers. It was hard to under stand why the sleepers had been bought, and as the whole deal had a somewhat unsavoury aspect it was enquired into on Tuesday last. Cr Furphy said he made reference at last meeting to a purchase of sleepers. He now asked Mr Jones whether it was at his recommendation. Mr Jones—No. Gr Furphy—Because the ratepayers are demanding an inquiry into the matter. The council did not require' sleepers, and if they did they were not prepared to leave them stacked up for a number of years. He was told by a business man that the sleepers were offered to him previously for Is 3d. Was anyone victimising the council, or what ? The ratepayers were asking what pos...

THE Murchison Advertiser PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 6 March 1914

THE PUBLISHED EVEBY FBIDAY UOBNING. FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 1914. Things, to say the least of them, were de cidedly interesting at the last meeting of the Waranga Shire Council — there was " The Park Road Contract," the " Sleeper Deal," and the " Uunsavory Sanitary Question." Each matter was of vital importance to the ratepayers, who have to foot the bill, and who will undoubtedly have to pay an increased rate if things are allowed to drift on from bad . to worse and the funds are expended in a reckless manner and without full value being received therefor. Take " The Park Road Contract " speci fication, appearing in this issue, and make an inspection of the road. One glance will be sufficient. Yet it was almost painful to hear the excuse offered by at least one councillor, who thought that the carting of sleepers had brought the stumps to the surface. What roc ! Although, seeing that the rejected sleepers shoved on the council were carted this way, and , the deal being a strong one, it is...

THE PARK ROAD OONTRACT. THE WORK "SKIMPED.' UNSATISFACTORY CONCLUSION "THE MATTER THEN DROPPED.' This matter had been brought up by Or Furphy at last meeting of the W«,. ranga Shire Council, and since that date there had been considerable corres pondence through the columns of this journal as to the manner in which the work had been carried out. On the following letter from the contractor for the work being read the whole matter came up for further discussion on Tues day last:— From Mr H. G. Poulson, Rushworth, as follows:—"My attention has been directed to several anonymous letters to the editor of the "Rushworth Chronicle," appearing in the issue of the 20th Febru ary, which doubtless have also come under your notice.

TAKE A REFERENDUM. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 6 March 1914

TAKE A REFERENDUM. Sir,—We ratepayers of the Murchison Waterworks Trust are deeply Indebted to you for your article in last week's paper dealing with the putting of water meters on all service pipes in Murchison. As one who has resided in Murchison for a much longer period -than most of the commissioners I agree with you when you say meters are not wanted and that all the water required by the ratepayers could be pumped by the engineer working six hours a day. There is one point you omitted from your article that I would like to draw attention to. Some time back a deDutation of ratenamrn the trust with regard to pumping by electrioity. I was present and so also was most of the present commissioners. The spokesman of the deputation (the late Cr Grillam) told the then sitting commis sioners that the deputation (of which at least four of our present commissioners were in sympathy) considered the trust should consult the ratepayers by referen dum before they took any action that would s...

Shocking Fatality. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 6 March 1914

Shocking Fatality. Quite a gloom was cast over Rushworth on Wednesday morning last when word was brought into the town that Mr Maurice William Frowd had been found just inside the gate of one of his own paddocks at Moora crushed to death under the wheel of his waggon, which was loaded with wood. From the position in which deceased was found it can only be conjectured as to how he came to be under the waggon, but it would appear from the fact that he had his hand on an axe. under the waggon as if he had got down to repair something. He was found lying underneath the hind wheel, which, however, had only gone partly over his body just under the left shoulder, crushing his lungs fearfully and causing instantaneous death. He had apparently lain there for some time before being found. The wheel was still on the body when deceased was found. He was found lying face downwards, and there was not the slightest sign to indicate that deceased had struggled in any way. De ceased was a hard-worki...

THE NO METER ORUSADE To the Editor. Sib,—Allow me fco congratulate you on your article of last Friday on the meter question.

If, at the end of the time mentioned, finances are too low, I for one will willinfflv abide hv their /Jarioinn — Yours, &c. NOT TOO FLUSH. 4—3—14.

TATURA RACES. The annual race meeting of the JLabura Turf Club took place on that club's well appointed course on Wednesday last, and proved to be a most successful gathering. The weather conditions were ideal, the attendance of the public excellent, while the fields on the whole were large and the racing first class. Visitors were present in numbers from Rushworth, Murchison and surrounding districts. The principal race of the day—Tatura Handicap—was won by Mr T. Ryan's Avoyer, a 6-yr-old gelding by Voyou from Ammunition. Avoyer is trained at Echuca. On the whole it was anything but a favorite's day, and members of the ring must have experienced a beneficial harvest. Re sults :— HACK RACE of £5. About six furlongs. J.

North Murchison Picnic. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 6 March 1914

North Murchison Picnic. The annual picnic at North Murchiaon was held on Wednesday lssfc in pleasant weather. Judging by the increased attendance this popular function has come to stay. As usual the catering, no light task, was ably carried out by the ladies of the North, who worked well, and, judging by the satisfied looks of old and young, fully earned the thanks they are entitled to. 'A good programme was car ried out under the supervision of the sterner sex, ably assisted by Miss Keep. In the evening many of the young folk assembled at the residence of Mr M'Nabb and topped off a good day with dancing. Perhaps the most interesting event of the afternoon was the "matrimonial race." It was a healthy sign for the future to make a record entry for this event, most of the lads and lassies present being pre pared to jump into double harness at very short notice. At opposite ends of the track the smiling prospective brides were faced by supposed bridegrooms whose visages denoted that mo...

Social at Carag. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 6 March 1914

Social at Oarag. The fact tbat Mc and Mrs Hugh Stewart and family were about to leave the district was made the occasion of a farewell social on the 26th ult., when there was an attendance of abont forty people. Mr JR. Hicks occupied the chair, and biiefly explained the object of the gathering. Mr and Mrs Stewart were old and highly respected residents of the district, and they had met to say farwell and wish the family every success in their new home at Bendigo. A musical pro gramme was gone through, during the course of which Mr Fulton made a pre sentation to Mr and Mrs Stewart (on behalf of the residents) of a handsome travelling rug, prefacing the gift with some very flattering remarks on the good qualities of the recipients, and he was supported by Mr Martin (on behalf of the school committee) and Mr Allan Taylor (tennis club). Mr Stewart suitably re sponded. The proceedings terminated with tea and coffee and Auld Lang Syne.
