'- ---g Mining Notes? THE Lone Hand battery and appurtsnoes at Wandiligong were purchased on Friday laBt by Messrs Miller and Co., oj Princess-Street, Melbourne. 1 If it were possible to ascertain thfl exact amount of gold that has com! out of the Mystery basin, near BrighiS it would, wo believe, amount to a goo® many thousands of ounces. And ye| it bas never been discovered where tbig gold has come from. Miners hold tbjj opinion that there is a reef in 1$ . locality, but its e.xact position is the problem. Many have put that opinion to the test, but still fortune has not favored them. Mr J.

Bread Price to go Up. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 12 January 1917

Bread Price to go Up. THIS week a slight increase in the price of bread in Victoria, and probably also in South Australia and Tasmania, will be announced by the Federal Foodstuffs Branch. Senator E. J. Russell, who is in charge of this branch, admitted on Monday that for some time he had had auditors examining the books of bakers in different parts of the metropolitan area, in view of the contention of bakers that the prices fixed in some of the States, particularly Victoria, were not profitable. He would announce his de cision, he said, in the course of the next few days. The dissatisfaction of the bakers arises from the fact that a lower price has been fixed in Victoria than in the three other States.

It provided for an increase of the tax on the 5/ ticket from 2d. to ;d , and an increase in the tax on the prizes from 7i to 10 per cent. At present Tattersall's p*ys the State about £90 000 a year from the two sources, and the new im post is expected to bring in another £60,000, making a grand total of /i 50,000, which must be something like Monte Carlo figures. Members urged the Government not to kill the goose that was laying the golden eggs, and finally 5d. was reduced to 4d The original proposes was to tax Tattersall's prizes to the extent of 25 per cent, but that would Tiave killed the goose stone dead, and the Govern ment finally agreed to take only 10 per cent.

St John's Wort. CONFERENCE OF SHIRES TO BE ARRANGED. PRESIDENT slated during the time for general business at the council meeting on Tuesday, that now replies had been received from neighboring shires, it was time some action was taken. Judging by the tone of the letters, he thought other shires had misunderstood the posi tion the council had taken up While they wqre favorable to a conference, they did not favor the scheme of .appointing one inspector.-Cr Goldsworthy said it was necessary that some steps should be taken to combat the spread of the weed, and was of opinion if delegates from other shires saw the position they would also realise that, too.-Cr Roper thought that some action should be taken. In many places the weed was only in small patches, and if landowners could be made to realise the danger, further spreading could be minimised -Cr Goldsworthy moved tha t a conference of shires in the north-east be called at liright early in February, the date to be left to the sec t...
