THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. FRIDAY, MARCH 8TH, 1895. Bunyip Railway Accident Report. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 March 1895
THE - rgaga (ruadi .n. "WITn WHICH Is LICOnroInSTED FRIDAY, IARCH 8rn, 1895. Bunylp'Railway Accident Report. The railway accident which occurred last week at Jefferson's siding; nearBunyip was caused by the points being out of order. -The points are protected by one of Annett's locks, so that when thecontri vance is locked the points are also locked. The engine driver carries a staff to which the key of the lock is attached, and the points can only be opened by this key. This is an excellent safeguard, and like rmany other inventions, may be relied upon on the hypothesis that the. aparatus is maintained in good order. The t?:rver of the goods train that last ran into the siding before the accident occurred locked the points in duty bound, but the depart mental inquiry shows that thie points were out of order, and that this circun stance caused the accident.
THE DAILIES DISTILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 March 1895
THE DAILIES DISTILLED. Mr. Henry Hogg told the Tariff Board that people were being poisoned with bad spirits sold by hotelkeepers, principally country publicans because the iigh duty on good spirits rendered it im possible for a profit to be made at 6d per nobbler. Mr. H. II. Hayter, C.M.G., is in a very bad state of health. He is confined to hisj.ouseandd his condition is such as to caunse grave anxiety to his mapy friends. A witness told the Tariff Board the higher duties had been productive of slovenliness in the making of Australian, wine. The vignerous were not making such good wine as ten years ago. In a County Conrt case heard on Tues day, a lady stated that one lawyer in formed her that his fee for obtaining a divorce was 1'80. Another legal gentle. .m:an whom she subsequently interviewed :;sated tlhat that his charge was two guineas nett. She placed herself in the hands of the latter, and he got her "d'egree" all right.

ALARMING FIRE AT MORWELL. DAMAGE ESTIMATED AT £7,000. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 March 1895
ALARMING FIRE AT MIORWELL. DAMAGE ESTIMATED AT 27,000. -o---- Fuller details are now to hand with regard to the fire at the Great Morwell coal tuine. It appears that some sparks found their way through openings in the buildings to a place where the brown coal was deposited, and con tinued to smoulder from Friday until a light wind on Saturday morning fanned them into a flame. The result was that in less than an hour the m chinery in the upper portion of the building fell through the floor, com plt,ely wrecking the whole plant. The tot.l damage is estimated to be between £6.ooo and £7,000, and this is only pal tly covered by an insurance in the Coa.mercial Union Insurance Company for £2,000. A new dryer from America wa- expected to arrive in Melbourne this week, and it was hoped that the company| would be in full working order before the winter sets in.

MUNICIPAL CON FERENCE. THE GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY, -0 A conference of representatives of shire councils throughout the colony was held at the town hall on Tuesday to consider the action of the Govern ment in reducing the municipal subsidy from £310,000 to £100,000 per annum. Cr. Gray (Castle Don nington) was voted to the chair. There were about fifty delegates pre sent. The Chairman moved-" That the Treasurer be asked to advance such a sum to the municipalities as will be sufficient to pay off their respective overdrafts, such advance to be made at the rate of three per cent interest, and to be paid off in ten annual in stalments." Cr. Anderson (Ballarat) seconded. Cr. Rlawlings (Lilydale) mosed as an amendment " that a deputation from this conference wait on the Premies and ask him as a question of principle and right to treat the municipalities as the Government have treated the Civil Servants and pay the September 1894 moiety on the basis as fixed by Act of Parliament," Cr.

A PRESBYTERIAN DIVINE. AND BROAD-MINDED FREETRADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 March 1895
A PRESBYTERIAN DIVINE. AND 1BROAD.MINDED FREE TRADERS. o-0- The South Melbourne Presbytery met this week at the Assembly Hall, Collins-treet. The Rev. Mr. Logan, in the absence of the Moderator, pre sided. In the matter of call Irom the congregation of Hamilton, New South Wales, to Rev. Chas. Bell, Clarendon street, commissioners from the latter church were heard. They stated that there was no disposition to stand in the way of Mr. Bell if the charge was to his advantage, but explained that there was a sum of £198 " morally" due to him by the congregation. They added that they did not think that this amount could be made up. Part of it no doubt, .night be. The Rev Mr. Bell said he believed he would get on more pleasantly with the more broad minded freetraders of New South Wales, and had agreed to accept the call. He would, however be very sorry to part with his friends in South Melbourne, and he need hardly say also, to part with his detractors. It was agreed that the call should be...
