DISTRICT NEWS. BENDICK MORRELL. BENDICK MORRELL, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 26 January 1915
DISTRICT NEWS. BENDICK MORRELL. (From our Correspondent,). UENDICK MOItltHLL, Monday. In your issue of tlio 211ml, exception js taken to my contribution of the 19th, re tlio wheat grab. Mr.'Bartlett soems to bo under the 'misapprehen sion that I wrote imagining that he was. the Government or the Labour Party who controlled the wheat seiz ure. (Not at all). I know Mr. Bart lett is" the pay clerk'for Dalgety and Co., and know right well he is not the Government or even the member for either Burrangong or Werriwa, and perhaps not even a supporter. For the last 20 years the Labour Party has advocated a .system of one-man one job, both iu the Legislative Assembly and when louring the electorates and have taken the greatest of care to keep it before the workers. I was at a dis advantage, and of course, could only contribute the opinions of the public with whom I came in contact; thus my contribution- of the 19th. However, thanks to Mr. Bartlett's open letter of the 22nd, I am in a better ...
Hospital Finances BIG LOSS ON YEAR'S WORK. MONEY URGENTLY REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 26 January 1915
Hospital Finances ! BIG LOSS ON YEAR'S WORK. MONEY URGENTLY REQUIRED. The BurnuiKons District Hospital 1ms had a very bad year financially and u comparative statement prepar ed by Mr. K. W. Collins (lion, treas urer) for the past four years shows a loss on last year's working of over £400. This is decidedly unsatisfactory and ought not to be. In a district such us this there should bo no dif ficulty in securing the necessary funds to run the institution, and the com mittee, who give their time to' the hospital, should not be faced at the close of the year with a shortage of money. It is true that last year the resources of the people were taxed considerably in contributing to the var ious war fundi?, still, the hospital should not be allowed to suffer. It is a false patriotism which-prompts cur tailment of subscriptions to such Insti tutions as a hospital in order to give to the war funds, and wc feel sure that :\\Q people of Young have only to have the position fairly placed before...

The Young Witness With which is Incorporated THE BURRANGONG ARGUS TUESDAY, JANUARY 26th, 1915. THE LIGHTING QUESTION. &nbsp; THERE is no doubt that the most important matter which the local Mun- icipal Council has to consider this year is the purchase of a new electric lighting plant to replace the now ob- solete machinery installed here in 1888. The old plant has had 26 years service and has seen its day, and the question of renewal has been more or less a nightmare to aldermen of each succeeding Council for some years &nbsp; past. From time to time repairs of an expensive nature have been carried out, these having the effect of making the plant hang out a little longer. The time has now arrived when the old is to be discarded, for the new; (when Young-the pioneer country town of New South Wales as far as electric lighting is concerned-is to have a more up-to-date service; when instead of only being able to have a light during the hours between from &nbsp; 6...

Last night the Town Hall Committee reported - "That no tenders have been received in accordance with specifications for use of the Town Hall for moving pic tures, and that the matter is still re ceiving attention.

This brought forth from the Mayor, the remark-"If you all knew as much as Lhe Committee-the mat ter would soon be settled."
