Tennis Tournament. INTERESTING PLAY. Great interest has been manifested in the Open Tournament promoted by the member** of St. Mary's Lawn Tennis Club, and which was commen ced In beautiful weather on New Year's Day.

OBITUARY. ROBERT D. TRESILIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
OBITUARY. ROBERT D. TRESILIAN. The many friends of Mr. R. D. Tre- silian were pained when the news of his death was announced yesterday morning. Death took place in Syd- ney, where the late Mr. Tresiliun had been taken to undergo treatment after all that possibly could be done at Nar- andera, where the deceased had resid- ed, was done. Last Easter he con- tracted a severe cold whilst at the military camp in Sydney, which later developed into pneumonia. Complica- tions ensued, and from that time until his death last Sunday, the deceased has been a continual sufferer. "Bob" as he was familiarly known, was born at Ganmain, was within a month of 20 years, and only son of Mr. T. F. Tre- silian (of Messrs. Tresilian and Dun).

Double Tragedy. GIRL'S HEAD BLOWN OFF. MURDERER SHOOTS HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
Double Tragedy. GIRL'S HEAD BLOWN OFF. MURDERER SHOOTS HIMSELF. It has been reported that a terrible double tragedy occurred at Toolern (Vic). Miss Wynne, 17 years of age daughter of Mr. R. Wynne, who liv- ed with her parents at Toolern, was shot, it is said, by an Italian who had been camping near the girl's home. Only meagre details of the affair are available. It appears that the Ital- ian approached the house while Mr. Wynne's two daughters were outside. A gun was standing against one of the walls of the house, and suddenly the man seized it and pointed it at Miss Wynne's younger sister. The young girl ran away and escaped un- hurt. Turning towards the elder girl the man fired, killing her instantly. He then turned the weapon upon himself. Dr. T. B. Ryan was sum- moned, but when he arrived his ser- vices were of no avail. The top of &nbsp; the girl's head was blown off.
Larrikinism at Young. NEW YEAR'S EVE PROWLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
Larrikinism at Young. NEW YEAR'S EVE PROWLERS. There have been many complaints of the manner in which the New Year was ushered in by some people at Young. Several report the loss of gates and damage from straying stock in the gardens. One resident writes in the following strain:— "We thought the larrikinism of New Year's Eve was a thing of the past. Some years ago a successful effort was made to suppress this sort of hooligan- ism, but like the Bathurst-burr it springs up spontaneously. The pre- sence of the band in the Park afforded a good opportunity to the street-corner push to display their night prowling proclivities. To the annoyance of others they sneaked in to the Public School and St. Mary's Church towers and rang the bells in a frightfully dis- cordant chime. When gates were town off their hinges people asked if all the police were called away to Broken Hill, or were they as usual missing when required. What a pity these young heroes would not volun- teer for the front whe...
The Call to Service WHY NOT MORE VOLUNTEERS? "DO OUR YOUNG MEN BELONG TO THE ARMY OF SHIRE[?] [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
The Call to Service &nbsp; WHY NOT MORE VOLUNTEERS? &nbsp; "DO OUR YOUNG MEN BELONG TO &nbsp; THE ARMY OF SHIRKERS?" &nbsp; In the course of his address at St. John's Church of England on Sunday evening, the Rev. S. A. T. Cham- pion made a strong appeal for more volunteers from the ranks of the young men of our town for service at the war. Incidentally, he referred to the numbers of young men who could be seen about the street corners and who frequented the picture shows, and had no ties of family to keep them from enlisting. Were they, he asked, fit for the trust of Empire? It had its privileges, but it had its solemn and weighty responsibilities. One way in which they could tit themselves for the duties of Empire would be by loy- al, self sacrificing service. He would readily acknowledge the splendid ser- vice already performed; the splendid self sacrifice and heroism of our sol- diers and sailors; the efficient and ready service of our doctors and ...
PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
PERSONAL The many friends of Mr. John Ma- roney, of Lower Coolegong, will regret to learn that he is still indisposed. He &nbsp; has left the hospital, but is confined to his room at his home. It is, we understand, the intention or Mr. Mar- oney to proceed to Sydney at an early date for treatment. Mr. E. F. G. Jolley, member of tho House of Representatives for the Grampians, Victoria, died at Mary- borough on Friday.
German Club Burnt. MOB OUTBREAK AT BROKEN HILL [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
German Club Burnt. MOB OUTBREAK AT BROKEN HILL The excitement in Broken Hill oyer the shooting outrage on Friday morn- ing was probably responsible for a crowd in the streets getting out of hand on Friday night, and burning the German Club buildings. Several thousand men gathered round the club and sang patriotic songs, and cheered. The military with fixed bayonets and loaded rifles ar- rived in the height of the excitement, but they were too late to save the Club. &nbsp; &nbsp; The crowd afterwards made off to- wards the Afghan camel camp.
ST. JOHN'S CHOIR. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
ST. JOHN'S CHOIR. All who heard the choir at S. John's on Sunday last must have been struck with the able manner in which the &nbsp; service was rendered. The singing was splendid, the anthems especially so. As the choir is such an import- &nbsp; ant adjunct to the services of any &nbsp; Church, one wonders that the talent available in our midst is not more availed of than it is. In a town like Young, there should at the least be a choir of fifty voices. If this number could be secured, it would be a means of solving one of the problems as to why people do not go to church. Of- ten the service (musically) is render- ed in a very indifferent manner, and tends to weary rather than inspire. However, the members of the choir deserve praise for their efforts on Sunday, and we hope that there will be further additions to the ranks, and the musical standard raised in con- sequence.
Sculling CHAMPIONSHIP RACE. CHARLIE TOWNS THE WINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
Sculling CHAMPIONSHIP RACE. CHARLIE TOWNS THE WINNER. The race between Charlie Towns and Syd. Kemp, for the championship of New South Wales—held by the for- mer—and £100 aside, was rowed on Saturday afternoon over the champion- ship course from Ryde Bridge to Searle's monument, and attracted a good deal of attention. There was a difference of 4lb. in the weight of the men, Kemp being the heavier. Both appeared to be in good fettle. The start, which was by mutual consent, was a good one. Kemp started off at a far quicker stroke than his opponent, and was soon a length in front. At Uhr's Pt. Towns had decreased the lead and hoth men were almost level. After that Towns gradually forged ahead, and at the mile beacon had a lead of a clear length, and was pulling well within himself. The race was practically over in that mile, the rest of the race being a procession. Towns eased down at the finish, and won by four lengths in 23m. 5secs. Kemp rowed a plucky race right through, but was clea...
COUNTING HEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
COUNTING HEADS. As the time is drawing near for the election of Mayor. Dame Rumor is getting busy, and there are whisper- ings about that Ald. So-and-So will be Mayor of Young next year. At last meeting of the Council Alderman Tier- ney (Mayor) was absent, and Ald. Hills seemed to be quite at home in the chair. Ald. Tierney has filled the position with credit to himself and the town, and not a few would he glad of his re-election. However, &nbsp; there is plenty of time before the elec- tion takes place, and its a bit early &nbsp; yet to speculate on the chances of any &nbsp; individual aldermen.
The Lost Battleship NAVAL EXPERTS THEORY. MINKS RELEASED PROM ANCHORAGE. TWO BOAT LOADS ESCAPE. LONDON, Saturday morning. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
The Lost Battleship NAVAL EXPERTS THEORY. MINES RELEASED FROM ANCHORAGE. TWO BOAT LOADS ESCAPE. LONDON, Saturday morning. &nbsp; According to survivors of the lost battleship Formidable, which was sunk in the English Channel, two other boatloads of the crew got away from the sinking vessel. Naval writers suggest that possibly in the gale, some of the mines laid to the eastward of Dover, broke away from anchorages and drifted down channel. In any case whether the ship was mined or torpedoed, they remind their readers of the appositeness of Mr. Winston Churchills remarks of Nov- ember 27th. On that occasion the first Lord of the Admiralty pointed out that our ability to afford to lose a superdreadnought every month for a year without the enemy losing a ship and yet be as superior in position as at the outbreak of the war. Attention is also drawn by the writ- ers to the Admiralty's wisdom in care- fully avoiding unnecessary risks with battle squadrons. The trawler Providence, w...
PLEASANT HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
PLEASANT HOLIDAY. The New Year, if it follows the omen of its first day will be cheerful and bright. The pleasant weather made a successful holiday, for, like all sum- mer holidays. New Year's Day is an outdoor festival. The only local sport was the Tennis Carnival on St. Mary's Courts. This attracted a large gathering. Many followers of the turf journeyed to Canowindra whilst some went to Adelong. In the evening the pictures shown by the Lyceum Com- pany attracted a very large gathering.
AVIARY IN THE PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 January 1915
AVIARY IN THE PARK. If Park Gardener H. Smith keeps go- ing, he will soon require the Council to build him an aviary in Carring- ton Park. At first we noticed one cage in the bandstand full of birds— then another appeared. A still fur- ther addition has now been made. The cages contain those beautiful song- sters-the goldfinch and their sweet carolling is a pleasure to listen to. We would very much like to see an aviary established. If it can at all be arranged, and we feel sure that it would meet with the approval of the ratepayers, who, by the way, are the ones who would have to pay for its &nbsp; upkeep. &nbsp;
