TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 26 December 1908
TYABB. Owing to the Gymnastic Club hawv ing to forego the next three weeks' meetings through circumstances over which the club has no control, it; has been decided to close it until the end of ?March next. Taking into consideration the probable weather conditions during the interval, and the prospects of a busy fruit season, the decision to close is a wise one. The meeting which was called for the purpose of forming a pony club was only moderately attended. A small committee was appointed to make full enquiries re track, police recommendation, and other partitn lars, which will be submitted at another public meeting, to be held on January 5th. Patrons and all interested in the Tyabb Park are reminded of the open air.cpncert to be held dn New -Year's Eve. 4s the master is not quite clear to some, the cosfaittee desire it to be known there will be so charge for admission to the ground, but a .ol lection will be taken up in aid of tI: improvements fund.

POLITICAL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 26 December 1908
POLITICAL. TO TIHE EDIITOR OF THE STANiDAIRD. Sir,--Re the political crisis. Dur ing the past twenty "years no leader has grasped the country's needs so effectively as Sir Thomas Bent. Slow to forget a friend; ready to forgive an enemy, a born democrat, he has studied the people; but recently be has dis played great weakn ass inll iclding to the town members on social reform, woman suffrage and scriptuie refer endum. If he is to be replaced, Mr Mackey is the best man for the posi tion of Premier. Risen by his own exertions, he h:as sympathy for the people, is an able speaker; his lectures to the law students were a revelation to them ; above all he is a master of details, which go to make a leader. MBr Swinbourne is i!ppossible. His policy of land settlement would only end in over production; besides, ha is too sincere and intense to stand the rough work of leadership, for too much power is concentrated in the city, and men of his class are more to be feared than labour leaders.

An Australian Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 26 December 1908
An Australian Industry. For the past five years Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills have been mann factured in Australia, and we believe they are the only purgative pills on the market that are made in this country by the proprietors..
