Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917

Sporting. AT 8 12 Balarang, the Sydney record breaker, is voted a chance second to none in the V.R 0. Newmarket Handi cap. His ri-cent eflorts over the Newmarket distance at Randwick, stamp Balarang as one of the speediest horses ever seen in Australia. When he won the Oarrington Stakes Balarang set llljfnr the six furlongs, and if he is up to the weight and can repro duce that time at Flemington next month, the Newmarket should be his race. Soultline held the Australian six furlong record, when he won the Newmarket under 9.11, and Fulminate (9.10), who ran second to Wakeful (7 6), was also then the six furlong record holder of her period. So fur, j Queen o' Scot's time, 1 12§, put up | five years ago, is the best for the x^ewmarket Handicap. Wolaroi, Mehi King and Thana, the pick of Sydney's three-year olds, are likely to come together in the V.RO. St. Lfiger. Frequently this race ia a one-horse event, but on this occasion it should provide a litis contest. The St. Leger carries a ...

Kiewa Valley Electrical Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 February 1917

Kiewa Valley Electrical Scheme. WOKK is now proceeding in the upper stretches of the Kiewa district in sink for rock foundations for reservoirs in connection with the hydro-electric scheme which some speculators are intending to exploit at an early oppor tunity. Those in the district are led to understand that influential Mel bourne capitalists are at the back of the movement. Hydro-electro energy depends on volume and pressure of flow. For instance, 250 feet of water falling 800 feet would generate 16,000 h.p., but falling 2500 feet would generate 31,000 h p. In regard to the initial survey it is possible to obtain a fall of 3000 feet in the Kiewa scheme and aa much as 500,000 h.p. might be obtainable, so immense are the potenti alities of the river. The survey of the stream was carried out from the junc tion of the east and west branches, about five miles up stream from the Tawonga Post Office. Between ten and twelve miles up stream from the. foot of Bogong, above Moun tain Oreek,...
