SlKEparion lUtos Published: Monday and Thursday Evenings, MONDAY. FEBRUARY i6. During the debate which took place last week in the Legislative Assembly, on the subject of the work of the Closer Settlement branch of the Lands Department, Mr J. £ Chatham, M L A., for Grenville, ter sely described the Act as "one of the most colossal failures that had ever been recorded by any Victorian Government." That is certainly a very strong indictment. The worst feature cf it is that it is to a Urge extent true; but the cause of failure does not originate with the Act itself. ' The object in view, the settlement of the people on smaller areas on easy terms, was good"; !>ut the end was defeated by defective adminis'ration. The Board was invested with ample powers in the way of purchasing land. It i5 to be feared that in some cases land was bought, especially in the dry areas, at much above its productive -value, A great mistake was made in not &lt;r iving the Board the power j of compu...

PREFERENTIAL VOTING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 February 1914
PREFERENTIAL VOTING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Now that a system of pre ferential voting is in force, as far as State , elections are concerned, it would' be interesting to know on what grounds the various Liberal organisations are arrogating to them selves the ri^ht to choose u candi date for the vacancy that will occur in this electorate at the forthcoming elections Before preferential voting was introduced, there was a danger of handing over the constituency to the Opposition if the Liberal votes were split by more than one candi date going to the poll; but under the existing conditions it is impossible for candidates to be elected by a minority vote. At the present time, seven candidates have handed in their names to be elected or rejected by a comparatively small number of electors, who call themselves Libe rals, but who are really keeping alive the worst elements of party govern ment. Surely any man who desires to serve his country should be wel comed into the field and allowed to p...
