THE MASON TESTIMONIAL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1880

TBE MASON TESTIMONIAL. TO mT XDITOR OF THE OGUADUY. DEAF Ss,-I read inthe last issue of the Dlrouin paper some very ungenerous remarks respecting the above subject. If the bun quet did not come off on the proposed date. the reasons for its postponement were well known to be-Firstly; the inability of Min istcrs, who had promised to attend, to come on the date first proposed; and secondly. the indisposition of our honorable member. To me the remarks I allude to do seem strange, and you will think, with good rea son, when I inform you that,- less that 18 nonsths sinre, a person connected with the Dronin paper proposed to me to start a Sovnement harving for its object the presen tatipn of a testimonial to Mr. Mason, and suggeting the "souvenir" should take the form of a forty guinea gold watch. Your contemp ,rarythenthoughtthatMr.Dison's -ertices were worthy of recognition. - Yours faithfully, JOHN MEDLEY.

Garsidc, Afieck, Hill, Gallagher, Gardier, Ould, Sulli vanu, Irwin, Fawcett, Suteliffo and Mc Hugh. The minutes of last ordinary meet ing were read and confirmed.-The President called the attention of coon cillors to the fact that it was not ne cessary to have recorded in the minute book notices of motion handed in at previous sitting, as it entailed a double entry and loss of time in reading, for they would be entered again after hav ing been discussed and ordered upon.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1880

We have extracted the above article from the "Age," because the views therein ex pressed are exactly in accordance with our own. We think, however, that the writer omitted one point, namely, to urge the Council (if the Assembly endeavored to meet,them, but could not overcome the technical diliculties) to give way, by either passing the Bill, or by a tacit consent to allow the sum "required for payaeint of members of the Assembly to be tacked on to the Appropriation Bill. The Buln Buln Agricultural Society's Ploughing Match on Friday last was a great success notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather and the bad state of the roads. A report appears in another column, from which it will be seen that the last business transacted was the handing over of the prizes to the winners. This is a feature for which the committee deserve special. com mendation as a great deal of inconvenience to tlhose entitled to receive the prizes was thereby avoided. The visitors who attended from other pa...

The Warragul Guardian. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1880

Ijc. itt'iC tt ' navblmt. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 180. Mr. CUTBER T morved, on Tuesday, in the Council, that the consideration of the Payment of Members Bill sentup by the Assembly should be postponed for a week, in order that a conference between the two chambers may be held oi the subject. The object of the conferoence is to make a joint ar rangement for dividing the bill into two; and the object of dividing it in to two is to enable the Council to re ject that portion which deals with the renmuneration of its own body. There is no desire to interfere with payment of members of the Assembly; but if the Councilrejected the hill in its pre sent shape, the Assembly would either have to forego payment or else put the required sum on the estimates, as they did before. Mr. BERRnnY, indeed as good as threatened on the Geelong platformtbat he would be prepared to tack the measure to the Appropriation Bill .if he could find no other way of overcoming the resistance of the Coun cil.

BULN BULN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. SECOND ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 September 1880

BULN BULK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY., SECOND ANNUAL PLOUGHING ' MATCH. The above match was held on Friday last in the paddock at the rear of the Turf Club Hotel, Bulm Buln, having been kindly placed at the disposal of the Society by Mr. J. Brown, who also gave a bonus of £10 for having the match held on his ground. The day was most unfavorable, although the previous day was very fine; and many regretted that, in adjourning the match the same day had not been adhered to, viz., from Thursday the 22nd July, to Thursday the 16th September. Had such been the case the attendance would have been considerably larger, and fully 500 mnight have been ex pected; but as it was there were not over 200, nearly all being local resi dents. The ramiln commenced at about six o'clock on the day of the match, and till six o'clock at night it was one incessant downpour, which completely spoiled the effect that was aimed at. The match, which was open to all comers in Class A, and open only to those who had bee...

THE EXHIBITION AND FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1880

TILE EXIIBITION AND FrDERATION. The following letter, under the above head, signed by IH. Collier, and addressed to the editor of the Herald, appeared in that journal on Tuesday last: " Sn,-Some years since in the columns of your paper, I was allowed, under a spe cial signature, to advocate tle necessity of a federation of the Australian Colonies. The timeu that has passed since then has but con viuced me the more thoroughly that the ne cessity for federation still exists, and that the sooner it is brought about the better. I find. from an utterance of the Ministerial journal of Saturday, and from your tele grams, that it is proposed to take advantage of our forthcoming Exhibition to "hold a cooference on various subjects affecting the several colonies." These subjects are mat ters of small moment, it seems to me, when - put beside the greater question, "Is feder ation of the Australian colonies desirable; and if it is, what are the:best means to be taken to bring it about ?"

A NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1880

A NARROW ESCAPE. We are accustomed to see the word "romantic" used as recklessly as that other adjectire "mysterious" so often misapplied in haste; Ibt± a scene which occured at the New Ilork morgue the other day will justify acertain young lady when she grows up in claiming romance as the atmosphere of early existence. A girl baby bad-so report runs-been found in east Nineteenth street, and after recevingduc attention it was being chhritably conveyed to the Nursery on Randell's Island. On the way, however, she took what. was judged to be a convulsion, and to all appearance died. The poor waif was accordingly handed in at the morgue, where it was laid on a slab beside a dead body. It so happened that some medical men had been holding post mqrtcm examinations, and were gossip ing on professional subjects. Seeing the child turned the conversation on .whether the age of an infant could be determined by examination, and, suit ing the action to the word, one of the gentlemen walked to th...

LOST AT THE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 30 September 1880

LOST AT TILE EXHIBITION. Having been commissioned to pay a flying visit to the Exhibition, for the purpose of giving a report of what was to be seen there, I went on Fri day last, with the expectation of find ing things all ready for the opening, with the exception of final arrange ments of exhibits and a few finishing touches. Judge then of my surprise when I observed lots of " claims" on which "shepherding" still seemed to be the order of the day, only a few partially opened cases shlowingthat no "abandonment" had taken place. In some instances I saw carpenters just starting the erection of the fixtures necessary for the display of exhibits, while in others the progress made was slightly in advance of the preliminary stage. I saw numbers of show cases ready for occupation, but with nothing to show that there was any intention to immediately utilise them, and I must confess that my thoughts wan dered back to the days when I used to carry chalk in nmy pockets, and I found mhyself wo...

A CHANGE OF TONE. In a recent numbor of the Sydlney Eveniag News we finhd the following, which, however we have a strong sus picion of having read somewhere else Iany years ago; but it will bear re telling':--A somewhat dissolute, old gentleman, more remarkable for the length of time he lived in the colony and sound judgment with regard, to whisky than for other virtues, called on a wealthy merchant of this city last week, and entreated, on account of auld lang sync is loan of £25. The" citizen len.ed back in his comfortable arm-chair, placed his thumbs in his waistcoat pockets, and shook hishead slowly from. side to side. "3My dear sir," quoth the worthy merchant, :"I am grieved' but I cannot comply with your request. I am not bound to give my reasons, but you are welcome to them. I have a wife my, friend-I have a wife." "Is that your reason?" asked the dissolute colonist, "because forthe matter of that, I'vehadseveral." "Hear me out," continued the mer chant.
