Look at their advertisellments, they are by the toot in...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wangaratta Chronicle — 7 February 1914
GLOBER BETTLEMENTI The report of Messrs Livingston and Thomeon, M,LA., as prepared by Mr. Secretary Owen, on Closer oet tlement is a sweeping condemnation of existing methods, It is unfair to iblame the Watt Government for blunders inherent in the scheme and in some of the men who have gone onl the Indl. Uut they have resisted the attcempts of the Country Party to amend the Act. Now they will be comlelled to re-cast It, The scheme is all wrong, but thle intention is right, and we do not doubt that Closer -ettlcment will[ ultimately work out all right. But that desired cld can only ie achieved by con tinueld vigilance to the end. The (hovenrnient now shows a disposition to reilcal clause U9 with its "spotted title"-another vindication of the actioin fof lhc, few members of the c'Ouiittry IrLty, vwho ihad tlhe courage Sitto li I tIi wron'g andlll to vote for it; retmaidv, ,ppsttd by thoime conul try ilciahllellll ii tliii O(tt party whoi vtt wilth Ihi 1 oveirjnmt right or i ltit ll Sa...
