GOULBURN VALLEY SEAT. AND THE LIBERAL PARTY. [To the Editor of "The Advertiser."] [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
GOULBURN VALLEY SEAT. AND THE LIBERAL PARTY. [To the Editor of "The Advertiser."] SIm,-Sinoe writing in your columns against the methods of local Liberal or ganisations in connection with the next State elections, I have been informed by one of the candidates that he has been requested to pledge himself to stand down, if required to do so, or otherwise the organisations refuse to recognise him as a candidate. Probably similar com munications have been sent to the others, and matters are rapidly being brought to a head. However, the candidate refer red to evidently questions the right to such high-handed proceedings; as he recognisea that preferential voting has remove3 the necessity of such proceed ings, and he states that he will not sign any such pledge. Rumors are current that other candidates are of the same opinion, and prefer to represent the majority of the electors by gaining the position in a straightforward fight, rather than by the influence of a small section-and more po...

[To the Editor of "The Advertiser"]. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
[To the Editor of "The Advertiser']. SIR'-As a member of the Peoples' Party, I feel that the recent corres pondence attacking the system of only allowing one Liberal candidate to go to the poll should be dealt with, and I would therefore appeal to the leaders of this party to justify this action. It seems that they are really conducting the whole election, -as it is generally acknowledged that this is not a Labor constituency, and consequently any can. didate chosen by the party is practically elected. Under these circumstances the electors are undoubtedly entitled to a statement of facts, showing if more than one Liberal candidate is in the field the Liberal cause would suffer. Yours, &c., MEMBER OF PFOPLES' PARTY.

SELECTING SENATE CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
Zi-zd Party .will receive nominationsi up to March 23rd. These nomina tions will be passed on to a central executive which will arrange for a ballot on the preferential system. All members of either of the lea gues or of the Liberal Workers' Institute, financial a month before the taking of the ballot, will be eligible to vote. Probably four Liberals out of five who take poll tics seriously dislike pre-election of candidates, and shrink from the creation of a machine shaping the policy of a party, no matter how able or honest those who control the machine may be. Individual itm is one of the cardinal doc triaes of the trueLiberal; but there are certain crises in the political life of a community when theories must go just as they go when a foreign foeis -'ff the coast. The manifesto issned by the three lea gues should go far to remove the objections of those who dislike the machine, the '" ticket," all that has gone to degrade American politics. The manifesto sets forth clearly that...

When these teams mot previously the students won by 10 runs (43 to 33), and their opponents were anxious to turn the tables. The weather conditions were excollont ; but, while High School-was well represented, the Presbyterian team was minus two or three good men (notable Davioe), and the services of the veteran, Mr W P Milne (president of the association) were ro. quisitioned. The match throughout was enjoyable and interesting, being even tually won by the school team by 20 runs, Skinner's bowling (6 for 19) hav. ing much to do with the victory.

DAIRY SUPERVISION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
DAIRY SUPERVISION. Throughout the State the educational work carried on by dairy sopervisors is having an excellent rfflct. Farmers are in many cases keeping fewer but better cows, and the result on the yield of milk is gratifying. In districts that have not been brought under the Milk and Dairy Supervision Act the average yield of cows is very much lower than in the areas under supervision. Mr W A N Robertson, who is the chief officer of the live stock division of the Depart ment of Agriculture, has prepared a re turn showing the average yield of cows in Victoria during recent years, as com pared withNew South Wales. The fol lowing figures will be instructive to far mers:-Average yield of cows in 1907 Victoria, 256 gallons; New South Wales, 257 gallons. 1908 9-Victoria, 243 gal lons; New South Wales, 257 gallons. 1911-12 - Victoria, 310 gallons; New South Wales, 277 gallons. 191.13 Victoria, 281 gallons.

LIGHT HORSE SQUADRON. DEPARTURE FROM SHEPPARTON. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
LIGHT HORSE SQUADRON, DEPARTURE FROM SHEP PARTON. There was a strong element of militarism at the Shepparton rail. way station this morning. The station-master, Mr 'I. Davies, and his capable staff were busy in see ing to the entrainment of men and horses for the imposing camp at Broadford, where they, along vith the other Defence detach ments are to be inspected by Gen eral Sir Ian Hamilton, Inspector General of the Oversea Forces. •Tae fact that such a distinguished Imperial oflicer, whose breast is ablaie with medals and decorations -when in full uniform-was to cast his critical eye upon them, has made everybody endeavor to look his beet, in the martial adaptation of the term; and so, for many days past, the men of the Shepparton troop of C Squadron have, like the rest no doubt, been hard at polish. ing up and furbishing their arms and accoutrements; with the result that when they stepped forth from their respective .homes today it was as if 'a gladdened sun was adding to their g...
ZILLAH HARRISON ENTERTAINERS. TALENTED AND DELIGHTFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
ZILLAH' HARRISON ENTER TAINERS. TALENTED AND DELIGHTFUL. The Zillah Harrison Entertainers may justly be stated to be one of the very best vandeville companies that has visited Shepparton for a long time, and undoubtedly the very best for many months past. It is one whose members are all highly talented, and who know what to give the public in the way of entertainment; and that they thoroughly succeeded in their efforts at the Star Theatre on Toes day evening was quite evident by the rapturous and enthusiastic manner in which the audience applauded and demanded encores. Unfortunately, the audience was not too large-a circumstance doubtless very largely due to the local public being made extra wary because of its having been so fro quently imposed upon by travelling companies, .which either fell very short of their self-belauded accom plishments, or were, through in competency, altogether unfit to appear on any stage, however un pretentious it might be. And the pity of it is that meri...
PUBLIC WORKS. SHEPPARTON SHIRE'S SHARE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
PUBLIC WORKS. 5?EPPARTON SHIRE'S SHARE Included in the estimates re cently approved by Parliament was a grant of £25,000 to assist shire councils n constructing main and other roads, carry out drainage works, and repair the damages to bridges caused by floods. The amount is considerably lower than the grant (£46,000) distributed last year. One reason for the reduction is that Parliament has voted £4,000,000 for the construction and maintenance of roads by the Coun try Roads Board. This is the last occasion on which the distribution of special grant for roads and bridges will be made by the Public Works department. In future all expenditure of the kind will come within the operations of the Coun. try Roads Board. ,The Minister for Public Works (Mr Hagelthorn) has allocated the following among other grants to shires : Shepparton Shire-Towards me tailing road leading to Dookie Col lege (council to expend £150 addi tinnalk. x£150 Euroa Shire-Towards maiuten ance of main roads leading to...

NUMURKAH'S WATER SUPPLY. THE ROTTING OF REEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
NUMURK AH'S -WATER SUPPLY. THE ROTTING OF REEDS. The recent spell of very hot weather has drawn attention in a very unpleasant manner to the state of the Numurkah water supply. During Saturday and preceding days the stench rising from the weir was noticeable in the main. street, and residents are becoming alarmed at the prospect of an outbreak of fever. The reeds in the creek have grown very luxu riantly since the last burning off, and are now very thick in the stream. If the water taken from the pipes is allowed to stand for any length of time it become very offensive, and .this is attributed to the rotting of the reeds, combined with the droppings from the thousands of starlings that nightly make the reeds their roosting place. The birds can be seen every evening for miles making towards Numurkah, and from all directions they gather at the mouth of the weir and fly about for some time prior to going to roost. Consider. able shooting takes place at them, and it is probable (says th...

SHEPPARTON'S WATER SUPPLY. DEPUTATION TO THE MINISTER OTHER COUNTRY COMPLAINTS, Three deputations waited upon the Minister of Water Supply (Mr Hutchinson) yesterday with regard to the water services in country places. Mr Greham, M.L.A. introduced a deputation from the Shepparton Waterworks Trust (Corns Denker and Phillips; Mr Nugent,secretary; Mr Tisdall, engineer), who com plained that the water sent over Casey's Weir for their domestic and stock supply only reached half way into their area. They askeed for the construction of a small channel, at a cost of £~0, to relieve the settlers at the far end. The Minister said he would go into the question of the allocation of water, and would comply with the rennest for a channel. Mr Graham also introduced .Ors F G Moss and F 1H Furze, repre senting the Numurkah Water Trust. They compained that the supply of water the people of Nu murkah were receiving was quite inadequate.

GLIMPSE OF PAST ENGLISH WOMAN IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 February 1914
iLIMPSE OF PAST. ENGLISH WOMAN IN FRANCE. Madame Louis Latour touched a sub jtct of peculiar interest to English women yesterday, when, in her French lecture at the Grafton Galleries, she dealt with the death of Henrietta of England, the Duchess of Orleans (says the "Westminster Gazette" of Novem ber 28). It was the most brilliant hour of her life when Louis XIV. sent her to Eng land as his ambassador to arrange the alliance. She was never forgiven for this by the Duke, her husband, and when she returned to France on June 24, 1670, not a single member of hi' family paid her the slightest attention The Duchess was deeply chagrined. pnd she felt the affair much more deep ly when her husband surprised her at Versailles when she was talking poli tics with the King, and made a violent scene. She entered the Queen's apart ments after that incident, and it is re carded that Mlle, de Montpensier, who saw her, observed that she "thought she had seen a dead woman walking about with her face r...
