Broken Hill Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Broken Hill Council. The recent disclosures in regard to the Municipal Council at Broken Hill has been the leading topic of discus sion-apart from the elections-in local government circles during the past few weeks, and while it is not our intention to discuss the merits or otherwise of the case, we cannot refrain from saying that the Mayor of Broken Hill, who, we understand, devoted almost tlie whole of his time to the duties of the office, and re ceived an allowance from the council of £300 per annum for his services as such, must have been kept in per fect ignorance 01 the state of chaos that existed in the management Oi rue office, as evidenced by the re ports of the examiners of accounts. The Act and regulations appear to have been, for some years, shame fully ignored, and if the conditions had been known to him we feel sure that the laxity in these matters would have been brought to light earlier. Presidents and Mayors are not expected to be mere figureheads, and we believe th...

FOR BARGAIN HUNTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

FOR BARGAIN HUNTERS. Bargain hunters are meeting with good luck just now, and are bring ing home large " bags" as a trophy of their skill in the chance of the alarming sacrifice. For the woman who likes to do up her sitting-room now and then, this is the time to select cretonnes for loose covers for chairs and couches. There are cre tonnes and cretonnes. The cheap, evil-smelling stuii' is " no good to Gundy," as the boys say ; but such big cuts haATe been made in the price of the artistic and pretty cretonnes and sateens that the temptation to buy a dozen yards or so is too strong for most of us. " The loose cover habit" is very strongly with us now, and for country homes it is quite an ideal way of making a room look fresh and dainty. Jacobean patterns are perhaps the most pop\ilar of all, and although they are on top as far as fashion goes, yet they can be got now with the fascinating drop of 6d. or even lid. a yard made in the price. These designs are rather large and sprawly, an...

Broken Hill. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Broken Hill. The Municipality of Broken Hill is a strong Labour centre, and the re cent election of aldermen was a con test in which much party feeling was shown, perhaps more than in any area in the State. The vote, however, was a poor one under the circumstances, for out of a total number of names on the roll of electors of 5186, only 2380 availed themselves of the privi lege of voting, barely 46 per cent., and this, be it remembered, on a newly compiled roll. The highest number of votes polled for anj' one candidate was 1190, and the lowest out of twenty-four candidates (twelve in the interests of Labour, and twelve Independents) was 1024. This was remarkably close polling, and shows that each side polled a fairly straight vote for tneir party. The result was that seven seats were won for Labour, and five Independent. The highest number of votes polled for a successful Labour candidate was 1190, and the lowest 1107, while .among the Independents tne highest successful candidate r...

Licensed Vehicles. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Licensed Vehicles. A glaring anomaly in connection with the registration fee for licensed vehicles was pointed out to the Nowra Council by a licensed driver, who runs the mail coach from Nowra to Moss Vale. He said that as he drove through five different areas, he had to take out five licenses, and unless the Act was amended, the fares would have to be increased.

Roads and Bridges. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Roads and Bridges. The late torrential rains in the South Coast district have been res ponsible for extensive damage to the roads and bridges, in some cases, it is said, to an extent quite beyond the financial ability of the councils, and it is felt that the Government should come to their assistance in their present dilemma. The Mayoi of North IllaAvarra has already ap proached the Minister fer Works, so liciting help to put the roads and bridges in trafficable order. The Engineer of Kyeamba Shire has reported very favourably of the road-making plant of the shire. Re cently it treated 622 cubic yards of maintenance metal, at a cost of £200. This included explosives, oil fuel, and rolling. Under the con'met sys tem {without rolling) the rest would have been £373 4s.

Rates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Rates. A great contrast in regard to the amount received for rates, as com pared with the wealthier councils, is shown in the Mayor of Carcoar's re port for the past year, ft is therein shown that the amount of general rate struck for 1910 was £184 12s fid. and the amount collected £100 19s Od. Further, out of the revenue collec ted, £55 10s 8d was spent on main tenance and repairs during the year. Comment is needless. The Clerk of Gunning Shire Coun cil has established a good record in the matter of collecting rates, the amount now outstanding be»*ig only 8s !)d. Berry Council, last month, prosecu ted John Mathers, Sydney, for rates due on property at Bomaderry. De fendant filed an affidavit that he paid the rates for years under protest. The Town Clerk deposed that Mathers, as far as Council was aware, was the owner of the property. De fendant had paid the rates up to last year, sometimes under- protest, aver ring he was not the owner of the land, having surrendered it to the orig...

Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Boxing: Dave Smith is not made of cham pionship material. This was .very evident in his match against "Cyc lone" Johnny Thompson, at the Sta dium on Monday night. Smith certainly won the referee's verdict, but, and the points were no doubt his way, he had little to spare at the finish, and another few rounds would have found him out, while Thompson was comparatively fresh. Dave, in fact, had a very close call in this battle, the closest he is likely to have during his career, without be ing outed. He was dropped with a right to the jaw in the tenth round, and was rising at 9 seconds, when the gong came to his rescue. In the eleventh round Thompson, eager to follow up liis advantage, fought like a tiger cat, but Smith gradually weathered the storm. The only knock-down blow in the fight was that of the tenth round. Smith got very weary towards the end of the contest, and hung on most persistently. The fight demonstrated that Smith does not carry a knock-out punch concealed about liis ...

Motoring. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Motoring. The Automobile Club of Australia was forced to postpone its liill ciimbing competition on Saturday owing to the bad state of the Artil lery Hill at National Pa,rk. The climb attracted twenty-one en tries, and of the cars nominated most interest was centred in the titst ap pearance in competition of Mr. (John Smith's big Mercedes of 112 li.p., the fastest and most powerful car in Australasia. Mr." Smith is also a prominent figure in the turf world, and owns that brilliant colt Bever age. . Several prominent motor cyclists are- of the opinion that an expert rider on a fast machine can cover the 5/5 miles between Sydney and Mel bourne in nineteen hours. This would mean averaging 30% miles per hour, and an improvement of forty-seven minutes upon the present motor car record for the course. C. Riddell, the Victorian motor cyclist, failed in his attempt to es tablish a motor cycle record between Melbourne and Sydney, retiring at Yass. He scored thirty-one punc tures, and fell in...

Surf Bathing. Kiaraa Council appear to be much distressed on the subject of surf bathing, and some of the aldermen would have it stopped if they had. the power. At their last meeting, a letter was read in reply, irom the Works Department, stating that there was nothing in the Act giving coun cils power to prohibit surf bathing, but if they had any doubt about the matter, they had better obtain the opinion of their solicitor, as tne de partment did not give legal advice.

A Mayor and the Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

A Mayor and the Act. The retiring Mayor of Wingham is not in love with the L.G. Act. At his valedictory to the Council, he is reported to have said that if the present Government desired to make a name for itself, it ought to wipe the whole thing out. It was, in his opinion, in a hopeless muddle, and noted more for red-tapeism than anything else. If the Government did this, it would indeed make a name for itself, though it might not be exactly a name to conjure with.

Cycling. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911

Cycling. J. Hurley has been, selected as tlie official representative of the Goul burn Club for tlie amateur carnival in Sydney at the end of the month, and several other members will also make the trip. The Temora (Jlub promises to send down a team of half a dozen riders for the fixture, and tlie Newcastle and Maitlana Clubs nave decided to be represented, and it is extremely pro bable that Stockton and Braidwood clubs will also send riders down. From the foregoing it is evident that the carnival will have a strong rural flavour. Country amateurs would be well advised if they can find the time to come to Sydney and put in a weeics training, as they will find racing on the iast track at the Sports Gr6und altogether different to the conditions prevailing in the country. In winning the Druids' Wheel Race and the five miles scratch race at the Druids' Gala on the Agricultural Ground on Saturday, Walcott showed excellent judgment in addition to pace. Despite the great outcry in the nort...
