War Census. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915
War. eensaus From the Attorney-General's de partment, helbourne, we have re ceived the following, and we scar cely think it needs comment: Dear Sir.-- The War Census AcBt having been passed and the sched ules thereto approved, the procla mnation fixing the date for taking the census will shortly be issued. The matter is one of supreme national importance. The gravity of the present crsis needs no em phasis. It calls for the utmost effort of which each individal citi zen is capable; the utilisation of every resource at the disposal of the community. And this cannot be done withcut organisation. It is now, unhappily, only too pro bab!e that this dreadful war will continue for at least another year. It may be for much longer. What the future has in store for us all no man can say. But two things are certain-one, that we must con tinue to fight with every ounce of energy we possess; the other, that wve can do this only by a complete organisation of all our resources. By no other means c...

The Pops. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915
The Pops. Best program yet, was the unani- mous vote of the audience at the weekly entertainment on Friday night last. The Sons of Erin s Isle were catered for, and Mr. L. Cloonan proved a happy chairman. Opening with the National An- them, the program included items by Mrs. Rees, Mr. Rees (cornet), Mrs. Gillespie (encored twice),Mr. 'T. Summers and Miss Eileen Lynch (dances), Mr G. Valentine, Miss Ivy Robertson (a visitor from Mildura who scored two encores), Mr. Swan, Miss D. Irvine, Mr. Le Couteur, Miss B. Park and Mr. Steele. Five recruits were warmly welcomed to the stage, and the audience joined in heartily in the earnest prayer we know so well. The dance afterwards was splen- didly patronised, and the Scotsmen will be hard put to it to score over their brothers from across the water. Owing to the big night at Wal- peup on Friday, the usual weekly entertainment will not be held in Ouyen, and the Scotsmen will be in check until the following week. Mr. L. L. Cloonan states final...
Shire Deputation. SATISFACTORY RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915
Shire Deptition. SATISFACTORY RESULTS. It is an accepted axion that money spent on a deputation is usually a profitable investment. This is not always so, but the rate- payers of Walpeup will find the following items regarding the. ef- forts of Crs. Pickering and Wilt- shire at Melbourne recently, of in- terest. First and foremost it is a, fair thing to say that throughout, the deputation was handsomely and courteously treated by the Hon. John Gray, M.L.A., and for part of the time, Mr. R. B. Rees, M.L.T C., also did that he could. The first question handled was that of the relief advances in cash, and it will be pleasing news to &nbsp; those affected to learn that such advances are to be repaid, in in-- stalments extending over seven years, at 4½ per cent: interest. The first payment on account of principal will be called for on 1st. February, 1917, but an instalment of interest is to be asked for a year earlier that is on 1st February next. The deputation also under stood ...

Galah Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 25 August 1915
Galah concert. That Galah is by no means an unimportant siding on the Murray- ville line was exemplified on Wed- nesday night last. The occasion which calls for this remark was a concert and dance in aid of the Wounded Soldiers' Fund. When it is stated that £15 15/6 will be added, little criticism is needed. Visitors came along from Ouyen, Nunga, Kia, Walpeup and other localities, and Cr. Glen occupied, the chair. The response to the ap- peal for assistance at the concert was overwhelming, and any who were omitted from the list must not feel hurt, the slight, if any, being quite unintentional. The program was very lengthy, and em- braced items as follow:--Duet, Miss Florrie and Mr. Roy Rogers; song, Mr. Vines (with cornet obligato by Mr. Rees); recitation, Miss Glen ; song, Mrs. Gillespie; recitation, Mr. Jas. Ross (this gentlemen told the story of a Private Still, but the recruits were not disheartened); Tiega school children sang the Marsellaise like natives, and Miss Freeland los...

Satisfaction was expres sed at the success of Mr. Mossop,s candidature for the seat at the council table.

Crosbie took careful note of the various requests, debated mat ters, and promised early attention. On:e question asked ot Mr Crosbie is worthy attention, especially by Mr. WV. Arbuckle, who had some thinz to saxv in the IMArr,. !st week. The auttestion was: If a settler st?s a :eedltul work on a silted up drain or broken embankment and repairs i:. would the commission pay a day's wages? Mr Crosbie's an swer was an emphatic Yes. The man on the spot with a shovel, es peciaiilly when it is raining, can pre vent a lot of water going to waste. Prospects are exceedingly bright, and a little more rain would ensu:e everything.

PTE. EDWARD LEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 8 September 1915
PTE. EDWARD LEAR. Still another lad, well known in this district, has answered the eter nal call. Pte. E~dward Lear (the popular Eddie of the Timberoo football team), who was reported wounded some time ago, has suc cumbed. When the first call for volunteers was made Eddie joined the colors, and almost the first de tachment to go included him in the ranks. Game as they make them, we know he upheld his end as a soldier, and now his name is added to the roll of heroes who strove against the iron heel of Kaiserdom. Every lover of football in the dis trict knew him, but it was not only as a footballer that he was popular. His personalty was such as to make him a general favorite. His bro ther is Mr. C. G. Lear, of Yel!um jip, and to his widowed mother (who lives at Cavendish, in the Western District), his brothers and sisters we extend the hand of sin cere sympathy, but at the same time glory in the deeds which wdn him such a death. In a recently published list ap. pears the name of Pte....

Electing A President. Prior to the ordinarv meeti'g cf Walpeup shire coanci o1 Fridayv night, the business of electing a president for the ensuinr ter in was dealt with. The new occupants of seats--Crs- i Farrell and Mossop-were duiy i sworn. and Cr. Viltshire was vo ted to the chair. Crs Pickering, Glen. iHcht andl and the chairman each e-~ terded a hearty welcome to the newly elc- I ted councillors, and those gent.e men suitably responded. On the question of the president's allowance. all those with experi ence were unanimous in expres.ing i the opinion that hitherto it had i not been sufficient. On the other hand, it was acknowledged that if the usual 3 per cent. was granted this year, then the new occupant would have no cause to complain. Cr. Wiltshire said at present, each couicillor lost two days a month in attending the ordinary meetings and at least that much time could be added for special meetings and other calls. That meant two months in each year, and he did not think it...
