THE TAMBO SHIRE ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 February 1882

THE TAMBO SHIRE ELECTIONS. TO THEt EDITOR OF TIlE ADVERTISER. Sir,-In reference to the election for the Bruthen riding, I should like, through your columns, to put forward a few remarks on be. half of the candidature of Mr. John Calvert. Next to getting a good secretary it is highly desirable that we should return at this, the first election for the new council, men of as msuch previous experience as possible in muni cipal mattem. Mr. Calvert has had a very long career in the Bairnsdalo council, and during that time has exhibited a great many of the most important qualifications for such a postH.le haIs proved himself independent, and, if not exactly anl orator, expresses good, soulld common sense views in a manly, com-. mon sense way. IIe has a happy knack of saying what he means and meaning what he says, andl I don't think hie has ever been c. cused of any undlerhand dealing. ?Ir. Cal vert, without being hotheaded, is in no way frightened of new ideas, so long as they seenm to hin...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE TAMBO SHIRE ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 February 1882

ORIGINAL CORRES PONDil)ENCE. THE TAMBO SHIRE ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF TIHE ADVERTISER. Si,--Noticing in your issue of Tuesday lnst an announcement by Mr. John Hlowlett that lie intends to offer himself as a candi date at the approaching election, and there being no intimation of where he intends holding his meeting to publicly address the ratepayers, I am led to believe that there is some foundation for the rumour that. he intends to shirk this responsibility altogether. Being an advocate of having everything square and above board I look on any such course of procedure on his part with sus picion, and consider it Ilnjust and nothingb short of a slight to the ratepayers for hiim thus to contest the election and try to foist himself upon them without giving theim a chance to question him, and thus ascertain his fitness or otherwise for the position. Rumour hsls it that he is put forward by a clique who lie considers strong enough to return him, and to whom he will be sub servient,...

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 February 1882

SPORTING NOTES. (BY AR~CuImEDEs.) I perceive that the Omeo handicap pers have not complied with the V.R.C. rules, which provide that thie minimum weight in handicaps over a mile shall be ist. Consequently as they will have to re-adjust their handicaps I will say nothing about them. Mr. A. T. Hill was very prompt as usual in publishing the imposts allotted for aInffra. The handicaps are meri torious and should give general satisfac tion. Mulatto heads the list in the Maffra Handicap with 10st 21b, a far more reasonable weight than tloe 10st 101b allotted him for the Mitchell River at the Bairnsdale meeting, and placing him on far more favorable terms with Rosette and Dunstan, and Aurora also meets the same two on more advan tageous terms, by a long way, and although I am not by any means a fanatic concerning the qualities of MIr. Calvert's mare, I question the advis ability of making such a sweeping re duction. At Bairnsdale, in the mile and a half handicap Aurora give Rosette 81b, a...

AN UNPLEASANT CONTRE TEMPS. SYDNEY, 15th February. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 February 1882

AN UNPLEASANT CONTRE TEMPS. SYDNEY, 15th February. Murdoch returned suddenly from Cootamundra, whither he had been called to defend a law case.. While pre paring to go into the field he was asked by Boyle why be,had returned.. He answered, " I want to seethe New South Wales team get fair play. I consider the Victorian umpire unfair." The matter was reported to the secre tary of the Victorian Cricket Associa tion, who wrote to the secretary of tih New South Wales Association to re quest Murdech to withdraw the state ment. Murdoch declined to withdrav it. The Victorian team held ameeting. and resolved not to attend the associr tion dinner to-night. They conveyed ther decision to the New South Wales Ass( ciation, who considered the matter ou side their jurisdiction, as Murdoch wse not a member of any club under t!e association. The absence of the V= torians from the dinner was regarded is an insult. Mr. Curtis Reid is the Vc torian umpire.

OUR OMEO LETTER. Wednesday, February 15. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 February 1882

OUR OMEO LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Wednesday, February 15. I have the unpleasant task of recording two deaths in our small community since my last, viz., Mrs. Coffey and Mr. William Ryan. The latter died on Monday night, and Mrs. Coffey on Tuesday. The case of Ryan is a very painful one. He was a man with a large family struggling to earn a living on a small selection, and by dint of hard work and economy just managed to make both ends meet. 'The family are now left entirely unprovided for, and what a poor, delicate woman, with a family of eight (the eldest being but 13 years of age) is to do is beyond my ken. The district of Omeo is celebrated for two things--namely, its climate and the charitable disposition of its inhabitants. An appcal to their charitable instincts is about to be made on behalf of this unfortunate family, and I trust it will be liberally re sponded to, for they may rest assured tlhat a more deserving case has never been brought under their notice.

OUR DEPTFORD LETTER. Friday, February 17. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 February 1882

OUR DEPTFORD LETTER.   (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT).   Friday, February 17. The Victoria Company's new manager has cut through the lava streak and opened out on the main lode. For the information of the mining quidnuncs of Bairnsdalo I may inform them that on other goldfields the lava streak is a certain indication of a main lode, but Nature may have changed her system here to uphold the peculiar views of some Bairnsdaleites. I doubt it. The quartz looks well. The shareholders are to be congratulated on this dis covery. The course of the reef is north east and south-west, and the work is now being energetically pushed on in the tunnel to intersect the lode, which is trending towards the workings of the No. 1 North Victoria. The sinking of the shaft on the No. 1 North Victoria lease is being pushed on day and night in the full confidence that the lode now being worked in the Victoria will soon be struck, in the shaft. The Mountaineer has cut through a quartz...

THE TAMBO SHIRE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 February 1882

TIHE TAMBO SHIRE ELECTIONS.   Messrs. Seehusen and J. Calvert will address the electors of the Bruthen riding at the Star hotel, Bruthen, this evening at 8, when there is expected to be a large gathering. Mr. Laughton explains in a letter published elsewhere his reasons for de- clining to stand for the Snowy River riding. Some doubt appears to prevail as to which of the members returned for each riding will have to seek re-election in August next. We may point out that in the Bruthen, Buchan and Bumberrah ridings the lowest on the poll will be the out-going man. In the Snowy River the council will decide as to which of the lucky three is to go out first, or if they neglect to do so the Governor-in Council will have to decide the knotty point.

PROPOSED NEW EASTERN RIDING. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 21 February 1882

PROPOSED NEW EASTEIRN RIDING, A meeting of the committee appointed to promote the subdivision of the central riding, was held at Wright's Nelson Hotel, Lucknow, on Saturday last, Mr. J. A. Taylor in thie chair. Mr. Whalley stated that, with only one or two exceptions, all the ratepayers in Bairnsdale who had been asked to sign the petition for subdivision had at once consented to do so. All the peti. tions sent out were not yet in, but they had already obtained nearly the number of signatures necessary to comply with the requirements of the Local'Govern ment Act. Mr. J. A. Taylor was elected a mem ber of the committee, and stated that he would have identified himself with the movement from the first, but he thought that in the interest of the Broadlands road it might not be judicious. He was of a different opinion now, and felt sure that it weuld be the best thing that the ratepayers of Broadlands could do to urge on the movement to the utmost. Mr. W. Maoleod expressed himself well ...
