MALMSBURY RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 12 February 1914

MALMSBURY RACES. ?a1 - ? The Malmsbury Racing Club held their annual race meeting on the Malmsbury racccourse yesterday af ternoon in the presence of a large public attendance. The afternoon was beautifully fine, the heat of the sun be ing ? tempered by a cool southerly breeze. Unfortunately for the club the special train they had engaged to run. from Melbourne was almost a total failure, only about 20 passengers travelling by it. 'This will be a severe loss to the club, as they had to lodge a deposit of £32 to ensure the run ning of the,train, and the greater part of this;money-"-will be lost. The en tries for the various events were fair ly large, but in most; cases the'scratch^ ings were numerous, and the fields were consequentlyxsmall. This was particularly -noticeable in the Trial Handicap and the Hack Race, in which there was only one starter in each, arid these travelled leisurely over the distances of five furlongs and were awarded half the stakes, £4 and £2/10/ respectively...

THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION. PARTY TACTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 12 February 1914

THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION. ? PARTY TACTICS. That there will be a double dissolu tion within a few months is now prac tically certain. The Senate; with its overwhelming- Labor majority, can 11 in.cr "the Bills of ?? Ministers back in their faces,-with every expression of contempt. Whilst Labor is thoroughly organ ised and has definite aims, the Liberal Party always, and inevitably,.tends to slackness. Its members arc drawn front all sections of the community, who are agreed on the one basic prin ciple that the individual should* be free, that there shall not be a new serfdom" with the .trades Union "Boss'" as the modern slave driver. But in order to organise successfully it is necessary to go a little turther.. The Liberal ??'programme' appeals to the younger men; and it. is they who count. That programme has to be scattered broadcast, and the Prime Minister, who is as earnest in the mat ter-as the youngest of those lTehhul him, has to be supported in scattering it. t - .
