KILMANY SETTLERS' PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 February 1914
KILMANY SETTLERS' PROTEST. The objections of settlers on Kil miany Park Estate to the condition in their lease, which requires that they shall devote a portion of their blocks to sugar beet culture, were laid before the Ministers of Lands and Agricul ture on Wednesday by a deputation introduced by Mr. Livingston, M.L.A. The deputation said it was high time the Government removed the provision which compelled them to de vote ten out of 40 acres to beet cul ture. Not only was the beet culture last year a direct loss to every settler on the estate, many of whom lost as much as £150, but the Indications were that this year's crop would be an even worse failure. The area was not suit ed for beet culture, and that was delm onstrated in particular by the fact that the Government's own plots, wh-lich had had every care anid at tention, and on which a considerable. amount Ihad been spent, were almost a total failure. Both Ministers stated in reply that they were about to make personal in qui...

GERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 February 1914
GERMS. A curious and suggestive contrast between the views entertained by in telligent laymen on the subject of "germs, a nd that which is, says our Sydney correspondent, entertained by nimedical menii themselves, cropped up the other day. it was suggested by an eminent doctor that, instead of build inig a Girls' i-igh School on the site ot Dariinghurst Gaol, it would be pre ferable to move the Sydney HIospital to the site twhich is to be mtade avail alc., and to turii the present hospital into a Girls' High School. Mr. Car michael, the Minister for Public In Sitrucioti, tiurnedC down the proposal at sight. " Anyone who knows any thing of germns,: he said, " must kniiow that such ia proposal is aind nissible."' But the doctor pooli-poohed the idea of danger from germs, and declared that it is negligeable; whlich it probably is. If "germins weore a millionth part as deadly as they are popularly believed to be, not a mo ther's a son of us would be alive to-day; for \we are continually...
THE POPULAR TASTE FOR LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 February 1914
THE POPULAR TASTE FOR LITER ATURE. Our Sydney correspondent makes some pregnant remarks upon the above subject, which will certainly thid an cenCUo in Victoria, as applied tu the so-called "libraries" scattered throughout the country districts. .1 says:-Tuere is reason to believe that a iarge proportion of the people sel dom read a book of any kind. But those who do read are very numerous. The issues fronm the municipal lib rary, which cost the reader nothing, give some idea of the trend of the popular taste. The information to hand is silent as to the number of books issued during the year. If available. It would give an indication of the extent to which the reading habit is prevalent. It is, however, specifc as to classification and per centages. Contrary to general belief, only 30 per cent. of the books taken out are works of liction. To judge trout what one sees in the streets, one would suppose that fully 75 per cent would come under this category. Perhaps, however, it is only ...
JUSTICES OF THE PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 February 1914
JUSTICES OF THE PEACE. The following letter recently appear ed in the "Argus"':-Your recent ar ticles on the question of justices of the peace adjudicating on the Bench have been widcely read, discussed, and appreciated by country solicitors, who conime in contact with " Their Wor ships' every day in Petty Sessions. I have had 15 years' experience in appearing in Courts of Petty Sossions, onil behalf of litigants and accused persons, pnd I must say there is no bigger farce existing that the present system, which gives justices of the peace such enormous judicial lpowers. It is weil known that men are not se lected for the position by reason of any traits which would naturally lit them for sucht a position. Every chairmnan of the numnerous mtuniclpall ties in Victoria, by virtue of his oflice, becomes a justice of tile peace for two years, and is generally made a per iinanent justice of the peace after that term has expired; and it is ditlicult to unrderstand for what lparticular rca...

LATEST- INTELLIGENCE. (BY WIRE.) (From Our Own Correspondent.) Melbourne, Thursday. POLITICAL. On Wednesday night in the Assem bly the Opposition stonewalled the Chief Sccrctary's Estimates on an attempt to get increased police pay. Shortly after 2 a.nm. to-day thle Gov eminment cleared the gallery, and the stone-wall continued until 7.30, when the Chief Secretuary's Estimates were passed, the only alteration being an agreement to pay the police an extra sixpence a day from July 1. .Mr Elmslie moved a reduction of £1 on the Edlcation Estimates in prder to secure equal pay for female teachers. After a lengthy debate. th motion was negatived; as was also a further mo tion to redtice the Estimates by 16/. The Estimlates finally passed.
