No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 29 October 1875
THE key-note will be given to the forth coming Ministerial programme at Warr nambool on Saturday next, when Sir JAMEs M'CULLOCII is to address his con stituents. The deliverances of the Premier will be looked forward to with much interest, and it will be seen whether this second "Daniel come to judgment" will initiate measures which will be really beneficial to the country, or whether he will resort to some political juggling for the purpose of "keeping hope deferred " in the breasts of the electors throughout tle colony. The pastcareer of Sir JAMES M1'CULLOCII does not give fair promise that he will pursue a straight course in the future. Although the return of the Premier and Treasurer may be looked upon as certain, as there will be n6 opposition, this is more owing to a combination of fortuitious circumstances than anything else. It is a singular fact that in the Warruambool constituclecy there are very few, indeed scarcely any, of the leading men who take an active interest in p...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 29 October 1875
NOTES AND EVENTS. Our subsidised local contcmporary-takes the opportunity in its last issue of .making some false statements concerning this jour nal, in an article respecting the Council's advertising. This prostituted journal has had the impudence to assert that the HERALD "has systematically abused the Council, and taken every opportunity to villify its mem bers personally." This, as our readers are aware, is utterly untrue. Though this jour nal has' not done the Council's advertising, it has always published lengthy. and correct reports of the Council's proceedings, and whenever strictures weref passed upon the councillors, it was done in the public in terest, and they were peflfcctly fair And le gitimate. Because we - ould not. quietly submit to be robbed, the president unjustly remarked. that' the HERILD "played the Council a dirty trick." However, with that we have nothing to do at present, but Would merely remark that our sn osidised local con temporary should adhere to the ...
