Short of Water MONTEAGLE WANTS WELL. DEEPENED. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 9 February 1915
Short of Water J --» MONTEAGLE WANTS WELL. DEEPENED. On Saturday last the Shire Council received an application from a Mont eagle resident to have the well on the Monteagie F.W.P. sunk deeper to ensure a better supply. The request was not complied with. One councillor thought that the Coun cil was not compelled to supply the residents In all these centres with water for domestic purposes. The residents seemed to make no provis ions for themselves, and if the Coun cil acceded to this application, all those small centres such as Thuddun gra and Tubbul might want the Coun cil to provide water supplies. Alter discussion the Council decided not to spend any money on a well. It was pointed out that there was a good dam of water at Monteagle, that was nev er dry, and;as the Council had already put Its foot down on supplying water for domestic purposes, it would not do anything/In the matter. It was also statcd-that the.residents In the vicinity could get together and put a well down themse...

Hogan's Golden Hoy passed the post first in the Novice Handicap. .Mr. Ticrney, the owner of Lodrewobj the second horse, protested on the ground that Mr. Hogan had not, in nominating Golden Hoy, stated all that provided for-in this particular case the time of the winner In a race at Young hi which Golden Hoy had come sccoud. The stipendiary steward, .Mr. Kungerford, took the case to Syd ney, and according to information re ceived on Friday has decided in fav or of the disqualification, and was awaiting the views ot the assistant sti pendiary, Mr. Duff.

The in teresting and legitimate question will arise. Why should a fair netior be penalised becauso of a technical inaccuracy?" The club would In all probability be blamed for ...

"The New York Sun" states:-"To prodict a speedy termination of the war would be idle Every shred of evidence that comes to this country directly from Germany, dem onstrates the depth, intensity, and un ity of german determination. To con quer cucli a nation m.j.y mean years, is it must mean a tremendous sacrifice of life and wastage of capital. But at the close of the fourth month of the war there is almost overwhelming evidence to warrant the assertion that German success seems no longer posslblo given existing political conditions." The following opinion Is expressed by llio "Tribune":-"On both fronts the German outlook Is getting less and less hopeful. Russian efficiency compelled a diversion of forces to the oast, which has broken tho power of ! the German offensive in the west. That is the most, di...
