THE BOWLING GREEN. A BEAUTY SPOT. COST OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 13 March 1914
I THE BOWLING GREEN. A BEAUTY SPOT. COST OF WATER. Mr. Duffy, president of the Tia ralgon Bowling Club, and Dr. M'Lean, waited o, the Wa:ernorks Trust on Wednesday, and asked that t he charge for water be redu duced. Commissioner Canfield introdu .ced the deputa.ion. Mr. Duffy said that since the bowling green had been mafe there had been a large expendi ture in this locality. The club spent something like £18) during the first year, and since then about :£700 had been expended by others. Thus the club had helped to improve the town, and he was ot the opinion that they should get" a reduction in the price of water, which helped to enhance the value ot property in the neighborhood.: Residents were free to co.r.e t n ti e green at any time. Members ot the club did not derive any benc fit from their large expenditure, except the privilege of playing oa the green. If the club had to :cl the property they would not getc their money back.

PUBLIC BATHS. BATHING PLACE ON THE CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 13 March 1914
! PUBLIC BAi Hl BATHING PLACE ON THE CREEK. The propocal, to bui!d public baths in Traralgon has been abad doned, as the cost would be about £803, with an estxa:eed annual 'eo deficit of from £33 to £50. An alternative scheme has been adop ted, namely, the making of a bathing place on the cree'k. The council's sub-committee submitu ted the fol!owing report at the meeting on Wednesday: The construction of a silnrfiung bath in the township would nm volve an expenditure of approxi mately £800, and as this mnoney could not be provided out of re venue, it would be necessary to obtain a loan of that amount, in order to carry out the work. From the experience of other towns where public baths have been pro vided, we consider it improbable that the revenue from the baths would do more than meet the worlung expenses, leaving the in terest and sinking fund on the loan, amounting to about £50 i:er annum, to be paid out of shire re venue. Although we regard the establishment et a swimming bath ...

A COMMISSIONER FOR GIPPSLAND. IMPORTANT PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 13 March 1914
,A COMMISSIONER FOR. GIPPSLAND. IMPORTANT PROPOSAL. At the Traralgon council meet ing on Wednesday, a letter was read fropn the secretary of the Buln Burn Shire, forwarding co.;y of resolution asirming the des a oility of a Commissioner being ap pointea to devote his whole time to the business of land settlement In Gippsland~, and askin; co opera tion in regard to same. Cr. Pettit thought the proposal was worthy of support, and argued that 11 a special Irrigation expert like Mr. Elwood Mead was re quired for the northern dis tricts, a special comm:ssioner was equally necessary for Gippsland to look after land settlement, forcstry and similar matters -of dcve'op ment. If, for instance, they had had such a hnan in the past, who was a practical judge of land, they would not have had the gross blun ders they had seen loca'ly nm the rejection by the C!oser Settlemeit Board of prope:ties like the Hey field, Traralgon Park and Cairn brook estates, which were after wards taken up by private...
DESTRUCTIVE FIRES. IN SEVERAL LOCALITIES GRASS, STACKS, AND FENCING BURNT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 13 March 1914
DESTRUCTIVE FIRES. ----o---- &nbsp; IN SEVERAL LOCALITIES GRASS, STACKS, AND FENC- &nbsp; ING BURNT. The dense smoke around Tra- ralgon during the past few days came from numerous fires in the district, and it was evident that there were fresh outbreaks. About 5.30 on Wednesday even- ing, Mr. Berry Christensen, of the Scarne, was cutting chaff, with a machine driven by horseworks, and he was astounded to see one of the stacks burst into flames. The on- lookers were helpless, and in a very short time five stacks and one straw stack had been consumed. There was no fire near the stacks, which were a quarter of a mile from where Mr. Christensen was working. The stacks contained the season's crop, and as they were only partly insured the loss will be serious. The fire that burnt through Wil- lung on Sunday has done further damage, and is now making to- wards Gormandale. A fire in the upper part of Mer- riman's creek did extensive da- mage at the beginning of the week, as ...

'At the con'clu'sion of the Traral gon shire councit meeting on W ed nesday, councillors discussed the heavy expenditure involved in the Country Roads Board's system of road making. Councillor Pettit said the cost, would be very.great, and the coun-, cit should not sanction.any expen diture' that would become a bur den on the 'itatepayers, as the councit would'have t6 find half.the money spent by' theboard in this shire. The president atdded that he 1lal discussed 'the matter with one of the coun'cillors a few days before, and agreed with Councilor Pettit that the council would need tpo be watchful. He mentioned the tenders for the new road at Pro vidence Ponds in the Barrnsdale shire, for which the lowest tender was in the region of £2000 per mile. The council must consider the interests of the rapepayers, be fore recommending any tender to the board. Councillor C.arke instanced a case at T...

'Mr. ;Cotter spoke chiefIy on the nationalizat;on of charities- hospi tals in particular. He said if this was dlone the State and the peo people as a who!e would benefit. At present there was a great over crowding of the City hospitals, while in the country •institutions there was always plenty of room. The cause of this anamoly was that everyone was anxious to se cure the best treatment, therefore they went to Melbourne,. where they could receive the attention pf the fbest specialists. That was the reason they flocked to the city arind would not go, to the hospits mn their own town. It the hospitals were nationalized by the State it would put an end to all this sort ot thing. People would then be able to obtain the best medical at tention, without goi...

G(ORMANDALE SPORTS, THURSDAY LAST. A NOVEL SITUATION. "The annual sports at Gorman dale took place on Thursday, un der very strange conditions. The atmosphere was charged with the smoke ot bush and grass fires mn the ne ighborhood, and it was so dense that the spectators cpulr only dimly discern anything on the, boundary of the grourid. The smoke seemed t6 form an impene trable wall round the hlittle town ship. -Very rarely has a sports meeting been held under such strange conditions, Owing to the fires the 'attendance was much smaller, than.on previous occa sions, and'some of those who ven tured from the hills hurried back again in the afternoon to be ready to protect their homes against fire. The financial result of the sports will, however, be sa'isfactory. SThere was good competition in all the events, and the finishes, especially in the District Plate, tvere ciciting. .A table cloth would have covered the six competitors in the final.

Tender too High. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 March 1914
Tender too High.--Terders were openea by the local -shire council on Wednesday for..the first con tract under-the Cbuntry Roads Act. This. was for four miles of the .Traralgon -South..road. There was only one tender, and £8100 was the price.. The tender was not accepted, as it was much over the engineer's estimate. The council decided to invite fresh tenders for this section, and also for a dev:a tion from the Cordial Factory\ Bridge, to come out beyond the "Switchback," probably in o ne contract. It is believed that such a big job will induce contractors. with extenslye plant to come in. In that case the work will be taken it a much lower rate. The council also intends to secure the metal for road works, so contractors will have plain sailing. The engineer hopes to have plans, etc., for the new section ready for next meet ing..' In connectioh with. the lat ter it is very pleasing to note tiha. landowners only ask a fair price for their land.' It is sta'ed that: Mr Timms,. o Timms' ...
COUNCIL JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 March 1914
COUNCIL JOTTINGS. Referrnng to thle burning oqj two culverts at Traralgon South the president said that if a water cart had been available the culverts nt doubt would have been saved. He thought the council should pur chase several water carts, and have them placed in dilfferent districts. WVater carts had proved very u.e ful in checking fires mn other l)la ces. Council'or Clarke remarked he haa seen water carts as low as £4 each, but ~the usual price was about £6. SReference was made by Council bor Whittakers to tile great des truction of timber that had been taking place in the hills for many years past. He said the railways would be most effecttve in pre venting this great waste. Yet the Gormandale 'ailway had been re fusea time after time. The de pleted timber supply would be come a serious question in the future.
