STAWELL QUARTZ MINES. WEST AUSTRALIAN OPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914
STAWELL QU A.RTZ MI^ES. WESTjAUSTRALIAN OPTION. Negotiations have been con cluded oetween Mr R. Hamilton, general manager of the Great Boulder Proprietary, West Aus tralia, and the owners of a group of Stawell mines, including the Magdala-cum-Moonlight, for an option, with a view to purchasing. There is much need ot a stimulat ing influence in Victorian quartz mining at present, when the talk of closing down old and well known mines is so frequently heard. The Great Boulder Company has been on the look out for a property for some time, several properties in Western Australian having been examined and declined. So. far, possibly to the regret of the company's officials, no Western Australian property has come up to require ments, and when the Stawell group of properties was brought under his'notice, Mr Hamilton was impressed with their possibilities. Though the idea of a Victorian mine being con sidered by the Great Boulder Company may come in for criticism in some quarters, it is on...

CHAIRMAN'S MOTOR CAR DIGNITY OF POSITION [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914
CHAIRMAN'S MOTOR" CAR DIGNITY OF POSITION Surviving a steady fire of ridicule, the proposal of the Moderates to supply the chairman of the Ltfndon County Council with an official motor-car was passed at a meeting of the Council yesterday (says "The Daily News" of December 17). The car is to be hired at a cost of £420 a year. It is to support the dig nity of the chairman's office and assist him to be received in "a fitting man ner" on ceremonial occasions. Mr Stanley Holmes, who moved the reference back of the proposal, won dered what the Moderate Party would have said seven years ago If the Pro gressives had suggested the provision of such a car. "How they would have talked," he said, " of the 'Wastrels' 1 Palace, to which the 'Wastrels'' chairman would drivo in his 'Wastrels'' motor-car."

We, however, succeeded in securing the privilege of entry for a limited number of educated Indians annually. We also specially endeavored to secure as favorable terms as possible for the Indians already resident in the Union, and our efforts resulted In the inclusion of provisions for the right of appeal to the courts on points of ...

CORBfcSPONDENCE HOSPITAL FIREWOOD. (to THE EDITOR). Sir,-Please allow me a smnll Bpaoo to insert my appreciation for 'ho kindness shown to tlio hospital by Messrs Birch, Nelson nntl Barkell. But why' leave it to those three ulono, .when so much moro could be done for the hospital if the. committee set ap.irt a day for cutting and carting from the bush ?
