No. I. THE REVOLT AGAINST "ONE MAN ONE VOTE." [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

No. I. THE REVOLT AGAINST "ONE MAN ONE VOTE." The Trades Hall party, and all the poli ticians who fain would have the support of that party whilst detesting its methods and principles, may meditate upon thie French saying that nothing occurs but the unex pected. Commencing with a crusade against the plural vote, they find themtselves con fronted with the dual vote. Tile gullant gentlemen went out in the joy of their hearts to shoot a hare, and, with only small shot in their guns, tind themselves face to face with a lion. Nothing more instructive has ever happened inl Victorian history, and as one heaving the country's hest interests at heart, 1 would like to point out ore or two of the lessons which may be learned. Going straight to the root of the matter at once, the vote on Mr. L, L. Smith's motion and the agitation which is now going on inl the country against ' one mants one vote," are simply the explosions of pent-up forces which have been gathering strength in the mindsof all ...

Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

Spring Valley. -0o [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Owing to the extremely short notice the Sall and Supper which was to have been given here on Friday last did not take place. The school house had been engaged however and to save utter disappointment to those who ventured, a social was speedily im. provised and, an evening was enjoyably spent in dancing and other amusements, not the least interesting part of the programme being a fruit banquet. The intense heat reached a culminating point here last Saturday when a [delightful and steady downpour of rain brought down the temperature very rapidly and was welcomed by all as. a longed for releif. On Monday a thunderstorm of considerable violence broke over the neighbourhood and resulted in a torrent of rain. There was no damage though the lightning was very vivid.

Barbara's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

Barbara's Revenge. BY HELEN FOIlIIST GRATES. ----,s *-- "Depend upon it, Barbara," said Ralph Penniford, "he's only amusing himself with you ! It's the way these fine city gentlemen do when they come down to the country." Barbara Wynyard's brilliant eyes, soft as velvet, and fringed with long, jet black lashes, sparkled omniously. "How dare you speak so to me, Ralph I" she flashed out. ' I will thank you to mind your own affairs for the future and let me alone I" The young man looked sadly down on the flushed, beautiful countenance of the girl. "Your affairs and mine, Barbara, once meant the same thing I " he retorted. " Once is not notw!" "I know it, Barbara,' and Mr. Penniford turned away, feeling himself diemissed, after the most regal fashion. The crimson zph'Iyr wool wbeaewith Bar. bara Wynyard was crocheting for herself a coquettish little threoe-nrnered hood, became sadly entangled, after Ralph was gone, and finally Barbara threw it aside in a pet. "He wouldn't dare!" she tho...

Correspondence. [W\Ve do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents.j THE ELECTIONS. The Editor of the Broadford Courier; Ste,--I think that every impartial reader of last week's COURIER will admit that your leading article anent AIr. Hunt and the hunting exploits in Seymour and other not very happy hunting grounds of the hunts. man was to the point, and was a laudable castigation. The scurrility that a oertain class of can didates indulge in is enough to deter up right conscientious gentlemen from enter. ing into parliamentary contests ; and es pecially so when they see the class of men that some electors " delight to honor." But as it is the only way to weed the* noxious weeds ' out of our political garden, all honor to the men who have the courage and ability to undertake such an arduous task. Sir-I think that all right minded people -that is, people who have sane reasoning powers-people untrammelled by the sug. gestions, influences, insiduous and sop...

Wandong. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

Wandong. ([RQM OUR OWN CORRESPoNDENT' Tem sacramental service of confirmation was held at St. Mark's Church of Eng. land, Wallan, by the Bishop of Mel. bourne. In the evening there was a largely attended tea meeting and a concert in the Richabites, Hall which went off very successfully. This was followed by a social on a following evening also held in the Richabites, Hall Some forty couples took part in the dancing, and altogether very en- joyable time was spent in spite of the hot atmosphere and the crowded room. Here at Wandong things are in a very depressed condition. The Terra Cotta works are going at half time, but I believe it is only for a shoit while. The weather still continues extremely dry, and we are consequently badly in want of a supply of rain. One of the social events of the near future is a public tea and concert to take place amongst the L'resby. terians early in March.

The Recreation Ground. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

The Recreation Ground. A SPsCIAL meeting ofgentlemen constituting the committee appointed bytbe Lands Do. partment to manage the interests of the local Recreation ground met at the Mechanics' Hall on Monday afternoon. There were present: Dr. Skinner(Secretary), Messrs. P. Kenny, A. Ferguson and C. E. Lloyd. Ever since the appointment of the committee in September last year, con. siderable trouble has been experienced in relation to the exact status of the board and as to its powers. A quantity of correspon. dence has in consequence passed between Dr. Skinner. and the officers of the Depart ment without anything like a satisfactory issue until recently when information was conveyed that the Board were regarded simply as a committee of management. This is somewhat disappointing to the gentlemen who from previous intimations wereunder the impression that they possessed the power of Trustees, and that they were consequently entitled to take such steps towards the deve lopment and conser...

I beg such of those classes as think on political subjects to follow me in a few thoughts upon their position in relation to the artisans of Melbourne. There are only two classes in the world those who produce food an.l those who live upon the foodwl producers. The latter are btosdly divided into those who produce manultfactured articles, and those who carry ron the business of both the other classes. There are srubdivisions, which we may di- miss.

Rabbit Extermination. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

Rabbit Elxtermiation. OlE of the great problems the Co. lony will sooner or later be called upon to effectually solve is that stand ing menace and curse of all land culti. vation, the rabbit pest. The vast sums of Government capital, together with the enormous yearly expenditure in private enterprise, have failed to pro. duce more than a paliiation; and how. ever determined a largeclass of farmers may be to carry on the war, there is a generally increasing feeling of dissatis. faction which is finding vent in very public forms. A favorable opportunity has been recently seized by the graziers of this and the surrounding districts to carry out a very deadly onslaught, but for all that has been effected the most that can be hoped as an outcome is a slight mitigation of the evil, and our farmers despair of being able to more than keep the rabbit at bay. Many practical and intelligent men question the prospect of doing even that. " I "am fully persuaded," says a corres. pondent to the " ...
