Fellow Electors. LET US REASON TOGETHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 25 August 1914
Fellow Electors. LET U:&lt; REASON TOGETHER. 1 Speaking at Benulh rec ntly, Mr. Aheru was on "the poiut of appealing 10 the electors "riat.to swap borM.s in crossing the stream.'' It was surprising to hear the Fusion candidate even'hint at such a thing. Was ii in-bis mind to try and make capital out of the war worry and obscure the real issue? Fortunately for himself, it may be said, he pulled himself up with a round turu, and did not pursue the thought further. One of the funny things per petrated by the Cook administra tion was the removal of the kangaroo from the penny stamp, and place a jackass on the stamp of the one shilling denomination. One of the jokes of the Fusion party at the last election was to bold up to ridicule w'lat they termed as "Fisher's flimsies/' referring, of course, to-the Fisher Government's note - issue." During the' Cook Government's palsied . regime, .M'Coll agfli i and again endeavored to pour .contempt upon th«'Com monwealth Bank..;. What are t...
THE IMPROVEMENT OF FARM STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 25 August 1914
THE IMPROVEMENT OF FARM STOCK. We may take it for granted tha' every farmer in the colony desires te Improve his farm stock, but owing tc the calls of every-day work too few have the time to devote to the con slderation of how it is to be accom plished. The time, however, will be well repaid. To some farmers, in al! probability, the plan of improvement has never seriously presented itself His stock, he tells himself, is no worse than that of his neighbors—possibly bettor than that of those around him The possibility of all-round improve ment is a remote idea not within the bounds of every-day life; so he goes on breeding in the old happy-go-lucky way, and if a'^superior calf or two comes he takes them simply as a slice of good luck for which to be thankful. But even then the conviction does not come to him that by exercise of judg ment in mating a suitable sire witl his best cows, at the same time gradu ally weeding out the unprofitable ones, he could lead up to a superior herd It m...

Mr. M'Lean at Winton. I Sir. M'Lean addressed a well intended meeting in the hall on Saturday, and was given a good hearing. Mr. M. Brooker occupied the chair. Mr. M Lean spoke at length on immigration, preference to unionists, and several other sub jects, hut what pleased most of his liearers was wtien he said the land by right belongs to the people, and he did not approve of it being monopolised by a few. (Applause ) He also stated bow the Labor party lost heavily on a meat transaction in West Australia. When Mr. J. Green stood up and gave him the Labor view of the affair, Mr. M'Lean quietly dropped the dis cussion aud took the next item on the programme. Mr. J. Joyce asked a few questions, but the one that was taken the most notice of by those present was—" Is it not a facf that the Deakin Cook Govern ment had passed a bill to borrow some mil'ions when they knew that they would be getting an extra £30.000,000 in three years from the expiratiou of the Braddon clause?"

A WITHERING CRITICISM, GOVERNMENT REDUCED TO ANARCHY." No condemnation of the Fusion parly has been more searching and scathing than that of the London " Times." In its issue of June 6. it devoted a long - leading article to the political situation, whilst nluiost two columns more were con tributed by its Australian corres pondent in an article in its issue of May 25. With the exception of the Melbourne " Herald " and the Sydney " Sun," not a single word of the important pronouncement of the "Times" has nppeared in a Melbourne or Sydney daily news paper. Such a telling indictment agaiust the continuance of the Fusion Government in office wa>' suppressed.

Correspondence. UNNECESSARY APPEALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 28 August 1914
Correspondence. UNNECESSARY APPEALS. • Sir,—Would it not be well if the residents of Benalla, realising the seriousness of the empire's position and the vital importance of swell iug the Lord Mayor's FuHd as far as possible, to refrain from making unnecessary appeals to the gener osity of their fellow townspeople. In this town the collecting craze has become endemic, and it seems to me that with the exception of soliciting support for our churches and charities (which must in no way be neglected) all other appeals to the public should absolutely cease till the war is over. While the empire is engaged in a death grip for very existence, it is no time for festivals, presentations, and other unnecessary extiavagances of a like nature. Anyone who has 5s. to spare for such purposes has 5s. more to add to his donation to the Lord Mayor's fund. The present generation have never before had an opportunity of contributing to the salvation of their national existence and probably will never ha...
